We asked skin care specialist Cathy about which procedure she would recommend that many patients do not take advantage of. She said that Dermaplaning, a treatment often added onto a facial, is one that patients don’t always know is available to them.
Dermaplaning exfoliates the epidermis and removes fine vellus hair, commonly known as “peach fuzz”. Please note, this treatment is different from Dermabrasion, as service we also offer. Dermaplaning is done by using a scalpel and carefully scraping the surface of the skin to remove hair using gentle feathering strokes.
This is a very quick, affordable procedure that is quickly gaining popularity. There are no adverse effects and there is no downtime. This a great “lunchtime” procedure meaning you can return after the procedure without any visible implications that you have had the procedure done.
Please remember this is a medical treatment and should be performed by a licensed skin care specialist like Rose or Cathy in our office. If you are interested in Dermaplaning and would like to find out more information, you can visit our office for a complimentary skin care consultation. Call (800) 559-3056 to schedule your appointment or fill out the contact form on our site.

The top 5 cosmetic surgeries of 2013 were as follows:
2. Breast Augmentation
3. Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)
4. Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
5. Nose Surgery (Rhinoplasty)
The top 5 non-surgical procedures of 2013 were:
2. Hyaluronic Acid (Restylane, Juvederm)
3. Laser Hair Removal

The number of male plastic surgery patients continues to rise, but the motivation behind having “work” done is not vanity. Men feel compelled to groom and maintain their appearance, and in this day and age, this includes minimizing the appearance of crows feet and fine lines with injectables and fillers.
The top three surgical procedures for men include Rhinoplasty, Liposuction, and Blepharoplasty. Although statistically speaking, men have a long way to go to catch up with the women when it comes to cosmetic surgery, it’s good to see that the field is gaining wider approval with the male population.
Interested in doing something special for the man in your life? Refer him to Dr. Adams and you’ll receive a $50 referral credit in your account! Call (800) 559-3056 to schedule an appointment.
It is estimated that half of all women are embarrassed by the appearance of spider veins on their legs (American Society of Plastic Surgeons). Sclerotherapy is a procedure performed by injecting a solution directly into the veins. The solution that we use in our office is Asclera, a polidocanol injection. Rose Rogers (RN, aesthetic nurse) performs all sclerotherapy treatments in our office and appointments can be scheduled on Wednesdays in our Peabody location.
This month we are offering 10% off Sclerotherapy through April 30th, 2014. So what are you waiting for? Schedule an appointment with Rose ASAP and get ready to show off your legs in short shorts this summer! Call us at (800) 559-3056.

The Aesthetic Meeting is hosted by The American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons, this year taking place in beautiful San Francisco, California. This year’s theme is “Building the Bridge Between Science and Art”.
Dr. Adams will be filming on-site videos while at the conference which will be uploaded to The Adams Center’s YouTube Channel. These videos will feature information about new trends in the field of plastic surgery.

I am happy to announce that my practice will begin offering Voluma facial filler. This new filler from Allergan uses VYCROSS technology to help provide more lift and longer duration than other fillers. As we age, our faces tend to lose volume and take on a “hollowed out” appearance. Voluma helps restore a youthful, full contour in the cheek line. Please contact my office to schedule a consultation and find out if Voluma is right for you by calling (800) 559-3056.

What exactly is microcurrent therapy?
This phase normalizes the skin with a very mild electrical current – a medically proven to rebuild an individuals cells’ natural electrical charge.
The DermaSound paddle is lightly stroked over the face and throat creating a slight pulsing and warming on the face. When a cell has been damaged due to environmental causes there is a restriction of the flow of nutrients into the cell and waste products out of the cell. This situation makes it difficult for cells to heal. The Microcurrent phase helps normalize the electrical current within the cells and helps promote healing, cell regeneration and resiliency. DermaSound’s Microcurrent Therapy breathes new life into tired, injured and aging skin.
