Question: Aren’t cosmetic procedures expensive and painful?

Answer: For under $100 many procedures, like microdermabrasion and chemical peels are affordable, comfortable and have a short recovery time. These procedures get rid of those dead skin cells and reveal a healthy layer of skin. Skin will have a smoother appearance and fine lines and wrinkles will be softened up. None of these services will cause you to miss work or keep you in the house for an extended period of time. Some treatments may give you a bit of “social” downtime due to possible redness and peeling but you’ll know well in advance and can plan for that.

Question: Help! I thought acne wouldn’t be a concern anymore but I’ve started breaking out again. What can I do?

Answer: Acne is frustrating and can happen to anyone, regardless of age. There are several strategies to combat adult onset acne. There are several treatment options depending on the severity of your acne, from microdermabrasion, chemical peels, Blu-u light, Accumax and/or Isolaz.
