This is a great fast procedure for the busy man who thinks he has no time for vanity. A fast procedure that can easily be done on a lunch break, microdermabrasion helps improve the fine lines and wrinkles that creep in around our eyes, mouth and forehead as we age. Using a gentle micro-crystal abrasive, we exfoliate the top layer of dead skin cells, leaving the skin with a more vibrant, healthy, rejuvenated appearance.
PL is a FDA-approved, minimally invasive procedure that can be used to treat skin conditions for all skin types including:

IPL works by delivering light to the skin surface (photorejuvenation) in precise pulses. IPL is most often (but can be used elsewhere) used to treat the face, neck, chest, and hands. On average, 4 – 6 treatments are recommended, scheduled at three-week intervals. Each session usually lasts about 30 minutes.
Laser Hair Removal
Men are typically interested in laser hair removal for the back and shoulders. These areas are difficult to reach and shaving on a regular basis is time consuming. Other popular areas include the chest, stomach, arms, fingers and toes. It is also possible to thin hair in these areas rather than completely remove it – an option some men prefer.
We currently use the Lightsheer Duet Hair Removal Laser from Lumenis in our offices. This laser is the gold standard in laser hair removal and offers several improvements over previous laser hair removal systems. An increased laser spot size cuts treatment times down by about 75 percent and also enables deeper penetration to the hair follicle. Previous lasers required the use of numbing gels prior to treatment to ease discomfort but with the Lightsheer we are finding anesthetics to be unnecessary.
How many treatments you require depends on several different factors. Genetics play a large role in how effective laser hair removal will be. Typically, laser hair removal is most effective on males with lighter skin tone and darker, coarser hair. However, the Lightsheer Duet has been approved for all skin tones. We don’t recommend undergoing the procedure if you have a tan – discoloration can sometimes result
