I have always had finely textured facial skin with few large pores but with advancing age, now my skin is starting to look coarse, has no radiance, and is sagging. What can I do?

    Microdermabrasion in combination with non-ablative lasers can help to move you in the right direction by stimulating collagen growth deeper into the second layer (dermis) of the skin. This non-surgical process involves a stacking method using microdermabrasion, NdYag laser, Intense Pulsed Light (IPL), and Light Emitting Diode (LED) that work together to effectively smooth and tighten skin. It is a quick procedure without associated flaking or downtime; you can even have it done on your lunch hour. This combination technique works best if repeated four to six times.

    Thermage is a non-surgical (no incision!) treatment that can tighten skin and stimulate your body to make healthier collagen—the building block that provides structure to your skin. The procedure uses radiofrequency technology called ThermaCool that has been clinically proven to tighten and gently lift skin to smooth out wrinkles and renew facial contours. Fast and easy, Thermage requires no downtime from normal activities. Now approved by the FDA for improving cellulite. In only one treatment, patients report smoothing of dimples with lasting results. Tighten and lift without surgery, injections, or downtime.
