IPL-Intense Pulsed Light Treatment
Broad spectrum intense light improves dark blemishes, sun spots, broken blood vessels, and inflammatory skin changes. Can be used anywhere there has been sun damage. One treatment is often sufficient for the upper chest area but the face and hands often require 2-4 treatments for optimal results.
Environ Skin Care
The Environ product line offers a definitive regimen to nourish, protect, and maintain healthy, youthful, beautiful skin. It includes products such as cleansers, exfoliators, retinol creams, anti-aging face and eye serums, and facial moisturizers. The skin care line has been specially formulated with antioxidants to deliver effective anti-aging ingredients for cleaner, smoother, younger looking skin.
For many problems associated with aging, surgery is not your only option. In fact, surgery cannot correct superficial flaws to the skin that often come with aging. These include discoloration, fine lines, sun damage, wrinkles, and acne. However, for these problems, our aesthetician and Dr. Constantinides will design a personalized skin care regimen to provide you with better looking and healthier skin. This will not only improve surgical results, but can also help to postpone that much-desired surgery, giving your skin the nourishment it needs before you’re ready to make the decision to take the next step.
If you have undergone a surgical procedure, such as a facelift, blepharoplasty, rhinoplasty, or forehead lift, you may receive lymphatic drainage to help speed the healing process. This combination of massage and suction enables the swelling and bruising of the face to decrease as each treatment is administered. Our aesthetician has treated hundreds of our patients and is specially trained in administering postoperative lymphatic drainage. The number of sessions of lymphatic drainage will depend upon the surgery that you had and how quickly you want to reduce the swelling. Lymphatic drainage is also excellent in treating the whole body in patients who have had body surgery, injuries or are recovering from cancer.

This surface technique of facial rejuvenation peels away old, coarse, sun-damaged, pigmented and wrinkled skin, leaving younger, thicker, healthier skin behind. In fact, the “new” skin is actually younger in its structure. In damaged skin, the structural proteins have become weak, thin, and loose. Chemical peels allow these proteins to rebuild so your skin will look younger and become healthier. Chemical peels are an excellent way to improve your skin quality. The healing period differs with each type of peel. There is some downtime required with the more intense peels. The improvements in your skin are often dramatic.
These peels are considered “light peels”. They are used to maintain the skin’s balance and provide healthier-looking skin by gently treating the surface. With the application of a mild solution left on the skin for a short time and through regular treatments we can rebuild the appearance of your skin. No downtime is necessary and you can return to your daily activities right after treatment. These are commonly known as “lunchtime peels”.
Reduces the appearance of fine lines, age spots and discolorations. Softens acne scars and treats breakouts and oily skin. Promotes a healthier looking skin tone through exfoliation. Available in concentrations of 30-70%.
Medium and Deep Peels
Dr. Constantinides will determine which peel is best for you based on his evaluation of what your face and skin requires. Local anesthetics are available depending on the type and strength of your peel. These peels are all performed by Dr. Constantinides. Medium peels remove more of the skin surface and penetrate deep enough to improve the skin’s structure. The peels can improve wrinkles like those around the eyes and remove the spots caused by sun exposure. This peel requires some recovery period.
Medium peels remove more of the skin surface and penetrate deep enough to improve the skin’s structure even more dramatically than superficial peels. These peels can improve wrinkles like those around the eyes and remove the spots caused by sun exposure. These peels requires some recovery period.
Deep peels are usually reserved for severe, deep grooves around the mouth or face. Topical anesthetic is required for these peels as the solution used to peel the skin can create a burning sensation and some discomfort during the procedure. There is an estimated recovery period of ten days.
