The most common signs of aging are brown spots, broken blood vessels, a sallow or bronzed appearance, which is followed by wrinkling and loss of elasticity.

The early stages of skin aging allow treatment using topical treatment containing Vitamins A, C, and E. Vitamin A can help repair damage, primarily when used in combination with the C and E.

Our clinical photo facials utilize Broadband Light (BBL) which reverses brown age spots, and broken blood vessels while evening skin tone. Because of its effect, not only on the skin but also on the DNA, the skin can be made to look younger and younger with ongoing treatment using Forever Young BBL therapy.

Our chemical peels are performed with a specialized facial skin laser which uses red laser light, resulting in a significant noticable improvement in overall skin appearance and texture. Our chemical peels are commonly referred to as the "Hollywood" or "Glyco-Ala" Peel.

With more significant changes and wrinkling, we can make a noticeable difference with various lasers. We might use several lasers such as our Fraxel (a non-ablative laser), Halo Laser (a hybrid ablative and non-ablative), or Contour TRL (a fully-ablative laser). Because there are significant differences in the outcome with one treatment, downtime, and cost, we recommend a consultation to choose the best option for each patient.
