Hyaluronic acid and collagen are abundant in the skin of young, healthy people.  The collagen provides the scaffolding or framework. The hyaluronic acid binds water to plump the skin.  Elastin is an elastic component in the skin which enables the skin to recoil, contract, or resume its previous shape after being stretched.  Thus, collagen, hyaluronic acid, and elastin work together to keep the skin looking smooth and supple.  Over time with damage from the sun, smoking, and with exposure to other environmental stressors, the collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid diminish within your skin.  As the skin loses its structure, volume and elasticity, fine lines and wrinkles begin to appear.  Although this process is natural and inevitable, it can be counteracted with many non-surgical advancements in wrinkle correction available in our office.

 

 Professional Skin Evaluation

Detailed skin evaluations are performed in our office by either Dr. Kupersmith or one of our nurses or estheticians. At this consultation a trained professional will recommend a skin care regimen specifically suited to your particular needs. The use of and benefits of the various skin care products will be discussed. Since we believe that proper skin care is an critical aspect of maintaining a healthy and youthful appearance, we encourage all of our clients to continue their skin care after they leave the office. We carry a variety of skin care products to best suit each person’s needs. Our preferred cosmeceutical lines include Obagi and SkinCeuticals.

 Chemical Peel

A chemical peel involves applying a chemical or a mixture of chemicals to the skin for a period of time to exfoliate or peel off the top layers of skin. These peels have been performed for many years to treat a variety of skin disorders, including sun damage, wrinkles, and even uneven pigmentation. Chemical peels can also smooth the texture of the skin. There are many different techniques and regimens. The exact strength and regimen is tailored to each client. Chemical peels may be performed alone or at the same time as other non-surgical procedures.

 

 Microdermabrasion

As with chemical peels, microdermabrasion has been performed for many years to treat a variety of skin disorders, including acne, sun damage, wrinkles, and uneven pigmentation or texture. The procedure utilizes a machine to gently blow tiny crystals on the skin to exfoliate or peel off the top layers of skin. The vacuum removes the crystals and exfoliating skin. The vacuum is also thought to induce cell growth and blood vessel growth. Microdermabrasion can be used alone or in addition to other exfoliative techniques such as chemical peels.

 

 Cosmeceuticals

To compliment and enhance our rejuvenating treatments for the face and body, we use and sell a complete line of skin care and body products by SkinCeuticals and Obagi.  To purchase any of these products, either call the office or see our eShop website to purchase online.

Our skin care consultants can assist you in selecting the most appropriate skin care or body regimen for you.  We stock many of the Skinceuticals and Obagi products and we can special order any other products which you may require.
