Dermaplaning was first introduced into dermatology practices in the 1990’s as an innovative way to exfoliate the facial skin either on its own or in combination with a peeling solution like glycolic acid.

The treatment is quick, painless and safe, typically taking 30 minutes or less. Most skin types can benefit from the procedure done with few exceptions. If you looking to give you skin a boost with instant gratification, dermaplaning is the treatment for you.

SkinPen Microneedling

For patients looking to improve skin texture, reduce fine lines and wrinkles or have scarring, microneedling might be the treatment for you.

Microneedling, also known as collagen induction, stimulates collagen and elastin production by creating thousands of precise micro-injuries in the dermis. Your skin then responds by turning on its own natural ability to repair itself, which results in smoother, healthier looking skin.

SkinPen is the first and only microneedling device in the marketplace to be given FDA clearance. This medical device also has single-use sterile cartridges so they are safe for patients and cannot be re-used. Both factors are why Dr. Michalak chose this device.

A good skin care program will enhance any in-office treatment and continue to improve results at home. Healthy skin that looks clear, free of discoloration and blemishes will help you to feel more attractive and confident. Cosmeceutical skincare is sold exclusively in dermatology practices because this type of product can have more active ingredients than its retail counterparts. Proper instruction and supervision help patients achieve better outcomes. We carry several cosmeceutical brands and skincare appropriate for the dermatology patient. Licensed Master Aesthetician Leslie Carney is happy to develop a skincare regiment that is right for you.
