Glycolic Peels are now considered to be the most advanced form of facial available. The Alpha Hydroxy Acid ‘Glycolic Peel’ is derived from sugar cane and has the smallest molecular structure of the AHA family. It can therefore penetrate into the skin much more effectively than other Alpha Hydroxy Acids. It is not absorbed in to the body and so will not cause any systemic side effects like chemicals in other peels.
Sclerotherapy is a procedure that can reduce the appearance of spider veins and reticular veins. Sclerotherapy is performed by injecting the problem vein with a sclerosing agent that irritates the vein lining, causing it to constrict. Over time the vein fades as it is naturally reabsorbed by the body. This redirects blood flow to other, healthier, veins located deeper beneath the surface skin. The procedure is most commonly performed for cosmetic reasons. Patients should have an in-office consult prior to scheduling to determine if the veins in question are good treatment candidates for sclerotherapy. The procedure itself takes approximately 25 to 30 minutes. Since the injection needle is so small, patients often feel little pain and do not need any anesthesia.
Varicose vein treatment: Lasers are great tools for eliminating spider veins and small varicose veins. Our healthcare providers use a unique high-powered laser that can destroy unwanted veins without affecting the skin. The system also features innovative cooling technology that helps ensure patient comfort during the short procedure.

Most patients tolerate the procedure well. To completely clear unwanted veins, you may need multiple sessions.
Fungal infections are a common type of skin problem that can also affect the hair and nails. Also called tinea, infections can occur on any part of the body. Ringworm, jock itch and athlete’s foot are some of the most recognized names for fungal infections on the body. Fungal infections frequently affect teens and children, but adults can also get fungal infections. Topical medications are usually effective for treating fungal infections. However in some cases, oral medications may also be needed. A dermatologist will prescribe the best treatment after examining the infection.
