Laser Hair Removal
Unwanted hair is a problem for both men and women. Laser hair removal is a simple and fast way to permanently reduce the appearance of coarse dark hairs. It is important to realize if you are a good candidate for laser hair removal. The laser we have at Downtown Dermatology is the Candela Gentle Lase. This laser works best for light to medium skin tones, and brown to black hairs. The area should be shaved prior to your treatment. A typical treatment is done in just a few minutes, and repeated every 6-8 weeks. A course of 5-6 consecutive treatments is recommended for optimal results. A consultation with our staff will determine the appropriate settings for the laser, and we will discuss with you your course of treatment. Treatments can start as low as $69.00 for a small area. http://syneron-candela.com/na/treatment/hair-removal
We offer 2 types of microdermabrasion. The Diamondtome system is a crystal free system, that allows for gental abrasion to the surface layers of the skin. This system is typically less painful, and less messy than the crystal based microdermabrasion systems. We also offer the standard crystal based microdermabrasion system, that can allow for a deeper dermabrasion process. Both systems are great for fine lines, sun spots, pigmentation on the face and superficial acne scars.
Fillers (Juvederm, Voluma, Belotero) Our dermatologists have years of experience in dermal fillers. There are many different types of fillers out on the market. Special consideration is made during the consultation to determine which filler will achieve the outcome that you are looking for. Fillers can improve fine lines and moderate sized wrinkles on the face, as well as replace the volume in the face that is lost with the aging process. The results can last 1-2 years, and often can be done annually to maintain the look that you want to achieve. Many fillers are mixed with numbing medicine, so they are very well tolerated with little pain.
Botox & Xeomin are neuromodulators that weaken muscle movement in the areas that they are placed. They can easily improve the look of fine lines, and wrinkles on the face. These treatments are done by injection, in the office, and take just a few minutes. The treatment is relatively painless, and has very little down time. Often times you can return to work within minutes, and no one would know you had anything done. The results can last 4-5 months. Treatments are affordable, and can be done just 2-3 times a year to maintain the look that you want to achieve. BOTOX® and Xeomin® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to temporarily improve the look of both moderate to severe crow’s feet lines and frown lines between the eyebrows in adults. See how BOTOX® and Xeomin® can change the way you look and feel. Schedule your free consultation today.
We offer a variety of peels starting from very mild for pigmentation and fine lines to acne peels and deeper peels for rejuvenating. The type of chemical peel varied depending on your desired outcome. We offer a variety of Glytone peels. These can help with melasma, aging skin, fine lines, wrinkles, rosacea, and active acne. A consultation with our esthetician will help determine which peel is best for you.

Smooth Out the Lines of Time
RF energy is precisely directed to the skin in the form of a matrix. Healthy skin around the dots accelerates the healing process of the skin. Post treatment, new collagen and healthy skin cells are produced. Mild to moderate wrinkles and superficial skin discolorations are reduced. The texture of your skin becomes more smooth and elastic.
This technology has been shown to effectively treat mild to moderate wrinkles, red and brown spots, and textural irregularities. This is truly the next generation of safe and effective rejuvenation technology.
