Brown spots (age spots) are flat brown, gray, or black spots on the skin. They are also referred to as liver spots, senile lentigo, solar lentigines, or sun spots. They usually occur on sun-exposed areas and are a result of an excess production of melanin. Skin aging, sun exposure, or other forms of ultraviolet (UV) light exposure, such as tanning beds, are all possible causes. You’re most likely to develop age spots on the areas of your skin that receive the most sun exposure. There are a variety of treatment options available.
There are many reasons red spots form on the skin, so it’s often hard to tell exactly what the underlying cause may be. Skin irritation can come from many causes. Some common forms of red spots are hamangiomas, acne and rosacea. Once the red spots have been diagnosed, we can proceed with a treatment plan, best for you.
Laser hair removal may be used to treat your unwanted hair. Come in for a consultation to learn how it works and if you are a candidate.
Wrinkles are a natural part of aging. Some wrinkles can become deep crevices or furrows and may be especially noticeable around your eyes, mouth and neck. If you are unhappy with your appearance, there are many treatment options available. Let us help you decide on the best plan for you to reverse the signs of aging!
KELOIDS & SCARS
Scars are new collagen fibers that repair the damage to skin after an injury. Scarring is a natural part of the healing process. Treatments to improve the appearance of scars include micro-needling, laser therapy and injections.
Keloids are a type of raised scar that occurs where the skin has healed after an injury. They can grow slowly, over time, to be larger than the original injury that caused the scar. Keloids are usually raised with a flat surface and can deepen in color over time. Treatments include laser therapy, freezing and other options.
As we age, our skin naturally loses its elasticity. Diminishing stores of collagen in deep skin layers caused by environmental stress, genetics and sun damage contribute to skin laxity. We can offer several treatment options as well as a skin care regimen to slow down the aging process.
Sun damage is the result of harmful ultraviolet rays from the sun on our skin, which causes collagen and elastin to break down. Sun damage can result in sunburn, dry skin, wrinkles and more. Protecting our skin from the sun by using sunscreen and staying under cover are the best ways to prevent sun damage. Let us help you choose the right sunscreen and treatment plan to prevent and reverse the effects of sun damage.
Pores are small openings in the skin that release oils and sweat. They’re also connected to your hair follicles. While we do need pores in the skin; if you are unhappy with the texture of your skin, large pores and oily skin, we can help!
Hair loss, or alopecia, can affect your scalp or your entire body. It can be the result of heredity, hormonal changes, medical conditions or medications. Anyone can experience hair loss and the affects to our self confidence. Various treatment options are available, so let us help you today!
Morpheus8 is a fractional skin treatment that stimulates collagen production of the underlying layers of the dermis. The radiofrequency microneedling stimulates collagen to tighten, lift, and smooth out wrinkles on the skin of the face and body. It can also be used to treat acne and scarring.
This skin care procedure is designed to improve the appearance of skin with just one or a series of treatments. The procedure takes about 30 minutes, does not cause pain, and does not require any downtime. Similar to microdermabrasion, the SilkPeel® treatment involves the removal of outer layers of skin through exfoliation techniques. However, the SilkPeel® treatment differs from microdermabrasion because it employs use of various treatment serums specially formulated to treat specific skin conditions.
Fractional (Ablative and non-ablative)
With fractional laser technology, the laser penetrates only small areas of the skin, depending on the size of the laser beam. This allows the laser to penetrate the skin deeper than before without scarring. Fractional laser treatment takes about 30 minutes to complete, depending on the size and location of the treated area. Some patients may choose to target individual areas of the face, while others seek treatment for the entire face. The results of fractional non-ablative laser are visible as soon as the skin heals and will provide significant enhancements such as reduced scarring, tightened skin, improved skin tone and texture and improved appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
A proven, unique radiofrequency treatment that can help improve the appearance of sagging or loose skin, giving you a smoother, sleeker and younger look and feel. Thermage works in just one treatment with little down time and delivers a natural looking result. It’s you, just younger looking and more confident.
Morpheus8 (M8) Body is the latest radiofrequency microneedling technology FDA approved for deep tissue remodeling. This minimally invasive treatment tightens skin, melts fat, and reduces the appearance of cellulite, all while improving the overall tone and texture of the skin.

Platelet Rich Plasma PRP
A concentration of platelets in the blood that are crucial to wound healing. When used for skin rejuvenation, PRP releases growth factors into the skin to expedite the body’s own repair process and stimulate new collagen and elastin.
This noninvasive treatment is a effective way to remove sunspot, age spots, “spider” veins, and other skin imperfections. Using a hand-held laser, we can break up brown patches of skin pigmentation on the face, neck, chest and hands and virtually eliminate broken facial capillaries (tiny red, blue, or purple veins). The result is a more uniform skin tone and a youthful appearance.
During this procedure, our medical providers inject different liquid fillers into the upper cheeks, jowls, or other facial areas. The choice of filler, Restylane, Juvederm, Sculptra, Voluma, Restylane Silk, Belotero, Radiesse and more, depends on the facial area and each filler requires a separate syringe. You will look younger immediately, rather than weeks after the procedure, because the fillers quickly improve facial volume, smooth out wrinkles, and create the illusion of a lift.
Botox Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles to temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows and around the side of the eyes.

Sculptra Aesthetic is different. It works with your body within the deep dermis, rather than topically, to help revitalize collagen production and help restore your skin’s inner structure and volume. Collagen stimulators are used to diminish facial wrinkles by helping to restore the deep, underlying structure of the skin. Results appear gradually over the treatment regime (typically three injections over the course of three to four months) and can last up to two years. Sculptra Aesthetic is an FDA-approved injectable that helps gradually replace lost collagen — an underlying cause of facial aging.
Dysport is a prescription injection that temporarily improves the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows. With Dysport, it’s just the frown lines that are minimized, not your expressions. It blocks the signal from the nerve to the muscles, which reduces muscle activity and temporarily prevents contraction of the muscles that cause frown lines between the eyebrows. Our experienced injectors will determine the exact placement to get results that are right for you.

Permanent Hair Reduction
How does laser hair removal work?
Each hair grows out of follicles located deep in the epidermis. The colour of hair depends on genetics and hormones which control the action of melanocytes. Melanocytes, which are located at the base of the hair follicle, are responsible for the production of melanin which is built in the structure of hair. The laser energy produced by LuxR is absorbed by dark pigments in the hair follicles beneath the skin’s surface and it is converted into heat which reduces or eliminates the hair on the treated area. The body hair selectively absorbs laser energy while the intense flash of light with a filter appropriate for skin color and type cools the skin while the hair follicle is heated. This selective procedure damages the hair follicle and protects the skin at the same time which makes the procedure safe and highly effective.
The demand for intense pulsed light (IPL) hair removal and laser hair removal treatments is at an all time high. This is not surprising, considering that traditional hair removal via electrolysis or waxing is painful and expensive. Light based hair removal permanently reduces unwanted facial and body hair, in fewer treatments and with comfort than is possible with traditional procedures.
Customized Facials & Peels
We customize our medical facials to target the specific skin concerns of each patient. Depending on the skincare needs of each individual, be it wrinkles, brown spots, acne or other, we can mix and match additional treatments such as dermaplane, chemical peels, needling, and lasers to layer over our facials for even greater results. Before each treatment, our highly skilled team will determine the best facials for every individual patient. Our goal is to tailor a treatment plan for every patient.
What’s the difference between a medical facial and a spa facial?
The end goal—clear, beautiful skin—is the same no matter what facial you get. But a medical facial, like the ones we offer, is much more powerful than anything you can get in a spa. The main reason: we use medical-grade skincare products that contain higher concentrations of active ingredients. This gives you more dramatic results.
The types of chemical peels we offer include:
Glycolic peels (AHA): This is a light peel recommended for normal and aging skin. This gentle peel exfoliates, enhances and smooths the texture of the skin.
Salicylic peels (BHA): This is a perfect peel for acne prone and oily skin. This peel prevents breakouts, cleanses pores and helps treat scars.
TCA peels (Trichloroacetic acid): This peel is helpful for a broad range of indications. This peel reduces wrinkles, improves skin tone and much more!
Jessner’s solution (combined hydroxyl acid peel): This peel improves skin texture, laxity and can also be used to treat acne.
Combination peel: This peel is a mixture of TCA and Salicylic acids. This peel can help with pigment changes, skin texture and rejuvenation of the skin.
Laser & Light Based Therapies:Pulse Dye Laser, CO2 Laser, Photodynamic (Bluelight) Therapy, Photo Therapy, NB UVB
Laser Hair Removal
For women or men who want smooth, sexy skin without the hassle, pain, or inconvenience of shaving and waxing, laser hair removal is an effective option. One of the most popular treatments offered at Aesthetica, laser hair removal requires a series of 6-8+ treatments to achieve permanent results.
How it Works: Using a combination of light and energy, the laser targets the melanin that is produced in the hair follicles during growth. This is why multiple treatments are needed, as hair follicles are in different growth phases. During the weeks leading up to the treatment, no waxing, tweezing, or depilatory creams can be used, as this will remove the hair bulb. Laser hair removal treatments are quick and convenient, with no downtime after each session.
What to Expect: Patients should expect to receive an average of 6-8 treatments to achieve permanent hair removal. After treatments begin, patients will begin to notice the following effects: *Slower hair re-growth*Less hair*Finer hair
Guidelines- *Laser treatments work best on dark, coarse hair*This course of treatment is not recommended for blonde, white, or gray hair*Patients should avoid sun exposure 7 days before and after treatment. *No chemical tans can be applied prior to treatments*Patients should avoid photosynthesizing medications during treatment*Patients with active infections cannot be treated*The area should be shaved prior to treatment*Discontinue waxing and tweezing, as the hair follicle needs to be available during treatment.
Chemical peels are a noninvasive procedure designed to promote healthy skin. Chemical peels are topically (skin) applied acids that aid in the rejuvenation of the skin’s surface. The peels are applied to the damaged skin and remove the damaged outer layer. The sensation ranges from slight warmth to prickly heat depending on the type of peel. The strength and depth of the peel will correlate with the downtime. In general the more effective the peel, the longer the downtime. Peels improve the appearance of the skin by reducing acne scars, uneven pigmentation, rough skin and freckling. Chemical peeling is a progressive treatment, and multiple treatments are recommended for a desirable result.
Most peels are not appropriate if you are pregnant or lactating. If you have a history of cold sores, please inform us as the sensitivity of the new skin may make you more susceptible to an outbreak.
Upon consultation with your aesthetician, each facial will be specifically customized to suit your skin. Facials calm and sooth the skin while removing debris, cleansing, hydrating, and anti-aging.
Dermaplaning is a facial exfoliation treatment that carries the added bonus of removing fine vellus hairs, often referred to as “peach fuzz.” Our aestheticians use a straight-edged blade to gently remove the top layer of dead skin cells, revealing the brighter, smoother skin underneath. There is no downtime after the treatment, and dermaplaning can easily be combined with other facial treatments.
What can I expect from dermaplaning? Dermaplaning treatments are performed with a sterile blade being used to skillfully and gently exfoliate your skin. The sloughed-off skin cells and fine hair will be wiped away at the end of the procedure, revealing a fresh, vibrant skin surface. Your skin care products will be better absorbed and you’ll enjoy a smoother application and finish when applying makeup. Results are immediate, with optimal results achieved through regular maintenance treatments, as your skin regenerates new cells over time.
