Body Contouring: Coolsculpting
The unique coolsculpting® fat-freezing technology is a nonsurgical, scientifically proven way to reduce pockets of fat in trouble spots such as the abdomen, flanks, or under the chin. Coolsculpting uses controlled cooling to freeze unwanted fat cells, which then become crystallized and destroyed while safely preserving the skin. Over time the dead cells are eliminated by the body’s natural lymphatic waste system leaving your shape looking more balanced, contoured, and smooth. Multiple treatments are often needed to obtain the best results.
Chemical peels improve cellular turnover and can correct a variety of skin issues resulting in healthy, hydrated, fresher and clearer skin. Peels address the visible skin imperfections that result from skin aging and sun exposure, such as fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone and texture.
Peels improve skin tone unevenness that is caused by acne scarring
or pigmentary changes.
CRMA Signature Facial
Our medical-grade facial begins with a gentle cleansing of the skin to remove any makeup and impurities. We apply one of our medical grade facial masks with a soothing stream of warm steam to prep and soften the skin. We apply a series of customized serums and medical-grade products to address individual skin concerns. Post treatment we apply protective antioxidants and sunscreen leaving your skin refreshed, smooth and glowing. Receiving regular facials can dramatically improve the appearance of your skin and keep it healthy.
Dermal fillers are injectable gel-like substances used to treat lines and creases anywhere in the face and can also be used to fill in/lift the nasolabial folds and contour the cheeks. They can be used to sculpt the chin, enhance, and define the lips for a more youthful appearance. There are a variety of different fillers that can be used, and each injection is customized based on your individual desired result. Dermal fillers are popular among both men and women.
Hand aging is characterized by a loss of tissue volume and elasticity of the skin which can increase the visibility of tendons, veins, and bones on the back of the hand. Over time the skin on the hands, like all areas of the body, experiences a decline in the production of collagen and elastin, two proteins that help the skin stay plump and firm. Slowly, our elasticity declines as the tightly knot network of fibers under the skin begins to loosen. Years of exposure to UV rays and other free radicals can cause the skin on the hands to appear spotted, dull, wrinkled, and/or crepe.
The Hydrafacial MD® treatment is one of the most popular facials in the medical aesthetic industry. The Hydrafacial MD® utilizes vortex-fusion technology to cleanse, exfoliate, and extract impurities from the skin’s surface while infusing antioxidants, hyaluronic acid and peptides. Hydrafacial’s are pain free and provide immediate results! You can apply make-up directly after and return to your normal activities.
LimeLight Photofacial (IPL)
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL), the Cutera® Limelight, also known as a photofacial or photo rejuvenation, stimulates collagen and rejuvenates the skin. The IPL is a non-invasive treatment that targets brown spots, redness, acne and sun damaged skin.
This is an injectable drug by Allergan that is FDA- approved for the treatment of submental fullness (double chin). Kybella® is administered as a series of injections. It is safe and effective in permanently eliminating fat by destroying the unwanted fat cells. Submental fullness may be caused by weight gain, genetics, or aging. This treatment is perfect for individuals that may not be able to optimally reduce fullness beneath the chin with diet and exercise.
Laser Hair Removal
We are equipped with Cutera® CoolGlide technology of a 1064 nd yag to reduce dark hair safely and permanently on the face and body. This laser is the best laser hair removal system on the market for all skin types and tones, from light to dark, including tanned patients because of its use of longer wavelengths. The Cutera® allows for extremely effective, safe, and permanent results on all areas of the body. To boost efficacy of treatments, it is best to shave prior to treatments and refrain from tweezing/waxing while you receive laser hair removal treatments.
Laser Treatment for Rosacea
The Cutera®Laser Genesis combined with the Limelight™ IPL procedure is the preferred treatment for Rosacea or facial redness. Also known as a 2D for the two depths of treatment which destroys blood vessels, minimizes large pores, and stimulates collagen, multiple treatments are necessary for best results.
Melasma Laser Treatment
We can safely and effectively treat melasma with the Revlite® SI Q-switched Nd-YAG laser. Q-Switched lasers produce a special wavelength of light that is absorbed by pigmented lesions. The light vibrates and shatters the pigment, breaking the melanin into micro-particles to be absorbed by the body without overheating the skin.
Laser Tattoo Remvoal
Tattoos are designed to last forever, but as more people seek reversal of these deeply embedded ink deposits, technology has kept pace with advanced methods of safety and efficacy. The most innovative technology comes in the form of the Revlite® Q-Switched laser. Finding an experienced provider is an essential first step for laser tattoo removal. Sharing your reason(s) for wanting a tattoo removed can be a vulnerable experience. Our Aesthetic Nurse Practitioners and Nurses are here to help guide and support you along the way.
Microneedling is unique handheld device that administers controlled micro-injuries to the skin using tiny needles. These micro-injuries, in turn, cause the body to produce new collagen and elastin, resulting in a thicker epidermis. This helps to treat the appearance of fine lines, acne scars, and improve the skin’s texture, tone and color. The end result is soft, healthy, younger looking skin.
Neuromodulators, such as Botox® Cosmetics, block the signal from the nerves to the muscles that are responsible for deep lines from repetitive movement in the forehead, lip and other areas of expression in the face.
PDO threads are FDA approved for the entire body. PDO threads are strong, absorbable monofilaments used as a suture for over thirty years. There are different characteristics to each thread; barbed threads are used for lifting the skin while twisted and smooth threads are used to lift lines or placed as a mesh to create support within the skin. The aim is to construct a scaffolding that will over time tighten the skin as well as improve skin’s appearance and tone.
SmartSkin™ CO2 Laser Skin Rejuvenation
The SmartSkin™ C02 utilizes a fractional laser technology to address skin concerns of scarring, sun damage, wrinkles, acne scarring, brown spots and pore size. This laser can smooth and tighten the texture of the face, neck and chest as well. The CO2 laser produces microbeams of energy creating an injury to the tissue that extends through the epidermis into the dermis triggering the body’s natural healing process to create healthy new collagen and elastin.
Titan™ Skin Tightening
The Titan™ by Cutera® is a skin tightening treatment intended to improve skin tone around the jawline, chin, and neck. It is the first tailored infrared light source utilizing special wavelength filters to diminish the signs of aging, laxity, drooping, sagging and wrinkled skin. Titan’s light-based platform provides a uniform distribution of energy for heating the deep dermis than any other energy sources, such as radiofrequency.
Ultherapy®: Skin Tightening
Ultherapy® is the only non-invasive FDA-cleared procedure to lift the neck, chin and brow. Great for tightening the skin on the chest reducing crepiness, laxity and fine lines.
