Cosmetic Procedures:

  • Botox® – Used to chemically diminish fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Facials and dermaplaning - Pamper yourself to a facial and then dermaplaning to get rid of the layer of peach fuzz.
  • Cosmetic fillers – Create volume in the skin to smooth facial wrinkles and contours and to enhance lips
  • Microneedling – To stimulate your skin’s natural ability to produce new collagen for healthier looking skin
  • Chemical peels – To rejuvenate the skin and improve skin clarity.
  • Benign growth removal – In addition to screening for skin cancers, any unwanted lumps or bumps can be cosmetically removed

We also sell a number of products from high quality skin care lines such as SkinCeuticals®, ALASTIN Skincare®, and PCASkin. Ask your dermatologist which products are best for your skin.

Cosmetic procedures are available at the Dermatology Clinic in the Clinic & Specialty Center and at our North Loop Clinic.

All skin care products are available in the Clinic & Specialty Center. The North Loop Clinic sells SkinCeuticals® in the pharmacy.

Laser and phototherapy treatments

  • Our V-Beam® Laser is the most effective laser for the treatment of rosacea, facial scars, birthmarks and veins. It can also be used to treat stretch marks, wrinkles, sun damage, warts, and visible dilated blood vessels. The VBeam® laser uses a dye to generate different colors of laser beams which are delivered in pulses. It is also referred to as a vascular laser.
  • Fraxel® is laser therapy for people who want a non-invasive effective treatment that reverses signs of aging. It can smooth skin, reduce wrinkles, improve skin tone all without the downtime of other procedures. Fraxel® treatment not only works on the face but also on delicate skin areas like the neck, chest and hands. Conditions this therapy tackles are spots, acne scarring, and areas that need filling.
  • Photodynamic therapy (also referred to as PDT or Blue Light Therapy), is the use of light or laser energy and can be used to treat acne, sun damage and precancerous cells. PDT works with a solution called Levulan®, which must be applied a specific time before the treatment.

These laser treatments are only available in the Dermatology Clinic in our Clinic & Specialty Center.
