No two people have the exact same skin types, which is why Laser Skin & Wellness tailors an individualized approach to each patient based on their age, skin tone, skin type, the issues the patient may be experiencing, and their goals for treatment.
Fewer skin conditions are more frustrating than acne! Almost all of us, at one time, or another, have experienced red, sometimes painful and swollen acne lesions that make us want to hide our faces.
Acne develops from blocked follicles. Sebum (oil produced by sebaceous glands), plus an overproduction of keratinized skin cells block the follicle and form a plug. The naturally occurring bacteria, P.acnes, can then multiply in the blocked follicle. This causes inflammatory lesions, or pimples. Acne can also be caused by hormonal activity, including stress, in addition to the blocked follicles. Usually, acne is most common in the early adolescence and teen years, but acne can strike at almost any age, including 20’s, 30’s and 40’s and sometimes 50’s.
At Laser Skin & Wellness, we use highly effective topical products that can only be purchased in a physician’s office.
A product called MD Duality can keep it under control. With consistent use of MD Duality, each month the quality of the skin improves allowing the residual damage from the acne to heal and slowly disappear. We also discuss exercise, diet and lifestyle modification strategies to address all of your skin care needs.
The Vitalize Peel® from SkinMedica brings the benefits of a unique combination of agents, providing a powerful yet gentle peel for all skin types. It is clinically proven to work in reducing visible signs of sun damage or aging; after one treatment you will see an improvement in the tone and texture of your skin, with less fine lines, producing more more youthful skin. A series of treatments is often best for optimal results.
The Rejuvenize Peel™ from SkinMedica is an advanced formula consisting of peeling agents. It also has built-in anti-irritants as well as a penetration enhancer, which provides controlled exfoliation of the uppermost layers of the skin to reveal fresher and healthier skin. Noticeable improvement can be seen after just one peel. This peel is 70% stronger than the Vitalize Peel.
An individualized home care regimen is needed to accelerate the benefits of facial skin treatments performed in the office and to improve your overall results. We provide a sophisticated regimen of cosmeceuticals that act synergistically with your personalized treatment program.

Vibraderm™ works by exfoliating the skin gently, which removes the outer layers of dead cells without the need for tugging, pulling, or even “sandblasting”. Most consider it as an aggressive treatment, however, it is superior to microdermabrasion and most patients report it just feels like a “facial massage”.
Dermaplaning is simultaneously a new and old beauty secret! It is a technique where the outer layers of skin are exfoliated with the use of a medical blade. This simple and safe procedure exfoliates the epidermis and rids the skin of fine vellus hair (peach fuzz). It has been used for many years, but has recently come back into fashion. The addition of a chemical peel takes this treatment to the next level!
Enzyme treatments only exfoliate dead skin cells, which is a big reason why they are great for nearly all skin types. They can can also be combined with Vibraderm or Dermaplaning treatments to enhance the results.
We customize our facials to our individual patients needs. Our standard deep cleansing facial is 50 minutes and includes massage, steam, mask and extractions. Enzymes, Vibraderm, Stem cells, Chemical peels and Dermaplaning can be added on to the treatment.
