Facials & Peels
Your skin is unique and therefore your skincare treatments and products should be uniquely designed for you. As a first-time patient, your skincare program will begin with a complimentary consultation and mini-facial with our highly skilled Master Aesthetician. This hands-on approach gives us a chance to identify your skincare issues and goals, then determine which treatments are just right for you.
Prior to each scheduled treatment, our Master Aesthetician will quickly reassess your skin’s condition so that she can make any necessary modifications to ensure optimal results. For facials and peels, we use safe and highly effective active ingredients to create maximum results with minimal downtime.

FDA-approved Botox® injections provide a simple, nonsurgical treatment for essentially wiping away wrinkles and frown lines. Botox® relaxes the activity of muscles temporarily by inactivating the nerves that control them.
Areas treated most frequently are: a) Glabellar area of frown lines, located between the eyes; b) Crow’s feet (lateral areas of the eyes); and c) Forehead wrinkles.
Hyaluronic Acid Fillers
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring gel-like substance found in your body between the skin and connective tissues supporting the skin. Restylane®, Perlane®, and Juvederm® hyaluronic fillers have well-defined safety profiles and are FDA-approved for the treatment of facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds).
Restylane®, Perlane®, and Juvederm® hyaluronic acid fillers are natural substances made from bacteria (not animal protein) that are biodegradable and biochemically compatible with the natural hyaluronic acid in your body. When injected into your skin, these fillers act like an inflated cushion to restore volume and fullness to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds.
Although the results are not permanent, they can last for a prolonged period of time, depending on the filler substance, injection location, as well as your metabolism.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy is a cutting-edge anti-aging and skin rejuvenation treatment. Since 1990, doctors have had great success using PRP to enhance would healing in maxilla-facial surgery patients. In 2004, doctors began applying the highly effective treatment approach to aesthetics.
This safe, innovative technique uses platelet-rich injections to add volume and correct wrinkles, folds, scars, and stretch marks on almost any body area. When injected into your skin, the platelets and white blood cells create a synergistic effect to rejuvenate your skin, boost production of collagen and hyaluronic acid, and stimulate tissue regeneration to provide amazing, long-lasting results.
Skin rejuvenation with mesotherapy is a safe, highly effective solution for looking younger without going under the knife. Mesotherapy is a non-surgical treatment used to nourish and rejuvenate your skin, promote production of collagen and elastin, and stimulate your metabolism. Pioneered by the French physician Dr. Michel Pistor in 1952, mesotherapy is a minimally invasive, natural alternative to invasive cosmetic procedures.
Mesotherapy treatments involve injecting a combination of vitamins, minerals, and amino acids directly into your skin. Given its exceptional rejuvenation capabilities, we have developed specific mesotherapy protocols to:
- Tone and tighten sagging skin on the neck, legs, abdomen, arms, and hands.
- Treat stretch marks, scars, and wrinkles.
- Reduce cellulite and contour fat.
- Rejuvenate and hydrate aging skin.
Patients typically see results after 3 to 4 treatments with more smooth, flexible, tighter, brighter, and renewed skin. If you are tired of looking tired, mesotherapy treatments are a perfect solution for smoothing out wrinkles and recapturing that luminous, youthful glow.
Vibraderm is a highly effective but gentle skincare treatment that uses sonic vibration technology to exfoliate the top layers of your skin and infuse rejuvenating nutrients deep into the dermal layers of your skin. Vibraderm treatments are perfect for all skin types, especially patients with sensitive, acne-prone or rosacea-prone skin.
We use Vibraderm treatments in conjunction with other protocols like peels and photofacials to achieve even greater results. By stimulating circulation and boosting collagen, Vibraderm helps reduce the signs of aging, treat fine lines, wrinkles, mild acne scars, dull skin, and large or clogged pores, and even out skin tone and texture. Patients love Vibraderm’s immediate results because the treatments slough off the dull, lifeless, and dead skin cells to give you a smooth, healthy, youthful glow.
Epidermal planing, or dermaplaning, is a non-invasive exfoliation technique for removing dead skin cells and fine hair on your face. Dermaplaning also helps rejuvenate your skin by increasing the absorption of active product ingredients that help improve firmness and elasticity while minimizing fine lines and wrinkles.
Dermaplaning exfoliation treatments are performed under the careful care of our Master Aesthetician. This procedure can be done on its own or with other skincare protocols to enhance their effectiveness through increased product penetration.
Dermaplaning leaves your skin smooth, soft, and supple, and even more importantly, dermaplaning helps remove impurities, improve skin texture, and even out pigmentation—leaving you with a healthy, fresh glow. For best results, we recommend treatments once a month.

Genetically Based Skincare—SkinShift®
Having healthy, beautiful skin requires healthy, highly effective skincare products, but how do you know which products are right for you and your skin? At The Laser & Skincare Clinic, we look to your genetics to take the guesswork out of choosing your skincare products. For the first time ever, SkinShift® uses a revolutionary DNA analysis to identify your skin’s genetic strengths and weaknesses.
To test your DNA, we simply swab your inner cheek to get your saliva sample, and then we send it to our ISO-certified genetic lab. The SkinShift® Test analyzes your DNA for 15 genetic markers associated with your skin’s genetic predisposition to five key aging and health factors. Once we receive your SkinShift® Test results, our Master Aesthetician determines which ingredients will work most effectively with your genetic profile and creates a SkinShift® regimen that’s uniquely designed for you and your skin.
Each SkinShift® custom formulation delivers a unique infusion of phytochemicals, antioxidants, vitamins, and essential nutrients to work synergistically with your body to enhance your natural ability to heal, repair, regenerate, and protect your skin. All our products combine only the finest organic ingredients with the most advanced cosmetic pharmaceuticals, and we never use ingredients that are toxic or harmful to your skin or your health.
While other skincare products may contain some of the same essential ingredients, only SkinShift® products are customized for you based on your genetics, and only SkinShift® products contain the precise combinations and concentrations of organic and cosmeceutical ingredients to create the most dramatic results in both the appearance and health of your skin. Visit SkinShift® to learn more or call us today to get started with your DNA test!
