The effect of aging, stress, and sun damage are often most obvious on a person’s skin. Many people also feel self-conscious about scarring, unwanted hair, moles, and unsightly veins on the skin. Our plastic surgery center offers a number of gentle, effective treatments that produce smoother, healthier skin without the need for surgery. Learn more about our cosmetic skin treatments below.
Clear + Brilliant®
Patients searching for a non-invasive treatment that can provide rejuvenated skin tone need look no further. Clear + Brilliant® is a convenient therapy that uses patented laser technology to improve the texture and smoothness of your skin in one simple half-hour treatment. Patients report a reduction in pore size, clearer skin tone, and overall softer, more brilliant skin after just one treatment. Clear + Brilliant® can benefit those who are younger and want to maintain their fresh appearance, as well as those who want to achieve a rejuvenated look.
Patients looking for a non-surgical treatment to tighten their skin now have a great cosmetic solution. ThermiTight™ uses advanced subdermal heat to improve the elasticity and appearance of the skin, making it firmer and more supple. This treatment can also even out skin texture in areas that are prone to cellulite by reducing fat deposits and creating an overall smoother appearance. In addition to providing outstanding results to many parts of the body - like the neck, arms, and thighs - ThermiTight™ treatment is convenient and comfortable. This hour-long treatment requires little down time, with most patients returning to their regular activities the very next day.
This simple procedure can give you a supple, fresher-looking appearance by simply heating your skin's deeper layers. ThermiSmooth™ uses heat technology on the surface of your skin to raise treated tissue to a precise temperature. This triggers a process that encourages the production of collagen, the protein responsible for making your skin appear young and vibrant. ThermiSmooth™ treatment is not only convenient, it also boasts a number of advanced technologies to deliver the heat in an optimally safe way. Many patients comment that their ThermiSmooth™ session feels like a warm massage, and marvel at how rejuvenated their skin appears after treatment.
Many skin issues can be greatly improved through the removal of the damaged outer layer of the skin to reveal the fresher, healthier skin below. Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive, non-chemical treatment that can improve skin affected by acne scars, fine lines, clogged pores, and more. This intensive exfoliating treatment removes dead, dull, and damaged surface skin and encourages the development of new skin cells. Patients enjoy smoother, more balanced complexions with a healthy glow. Multiple treatments may be necessary to achieve the desired results.
Chemical peels are popular for treating patients with uneven skin tones, blemishes, and fine lines and wrinkles. Using an acid-based solution, a chemical peel improves the texture and tone of the skin by burning off the outer layer to reveal healthy, younger-looking skin when the damaged skin peels away. We offer a variety of chemical peels to serve patients with varying degrees of skin conditions and offer the most effective results with the least amount of irritation and peeling. To learn more about how chemical peels compare to microdermabrasion, and other cosmetic options, contact our office today. We would be pleased to answer any questions you might have.
Wrinkles and deep facial creases around the eyes, nose, and mouth can greatly contribute to an aged look. To help combat the effects of aging, there are a number of injectable cosmetic treatments available, including BOTOX® Cosmetic, JUVÉDERM™, and Radiesse®. Each one of there therapies has a unique set of applications in targeting a certain parts of the face. For lines around the eyes, patients can receive a highly effective BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment. JUVÉDERM™ has a few uses, including plumping up the lips for a youthful pout, or smoothing out fine wrinkles. Patients may choose Radiesse® to improve the appearance of skin, particularly around the mouth, including marionette lines and wrinkles on the chin.

bioCorneum®+ is a quick drying, patented silicone gel that creates an invisible silicone sheet over the scar and is FDA cleared. The invisible protective barrier is breathable, flexible, waterproof, and the only silicone scar gel that provides protection from the sun. It binds with the stratum corneum (the outer layer of skin cells) to protect the underlying tissue against chemical, microbial and physical invasion of the scar. It hydrates the scarred area and creates an environment which allows the scar to mature through normal collagen synthesis cycles and improves the physiological and cosmetic appearance of the scar.
