Skin Types

It’s important to remember that all skin types and conditions are individual and should be discussed with your aesthetician. Each prescribed skin correction product may be increased or decreased in usage frequency and amount. Many products have active prescription-strength ingredients that require knowledgeable instruction to be both safe and effective. Communication is essential to achieving your skincare goals.

Normal/ Combination

Normal/combination skin

Normal or combination skin types fill the range between dry and oily. For instance, you could have an oily T-zone (central face) with a normal-to-dry circumference or your level of oil can depend on the time of year. Balance is the key to these skin types by choosing products that are not too strong or too mild. Patient preference plays a part in selection as well.

 

Normal/ Combination + Photo-Damaged

Normal-Combination + Photo-Damaged Skin

Corrective treatment for normal or combination skin with photo damage should be moderate. The thickness of your skin, in addition to oil and moisture levels, will determine the proper strength of prescribed products. Staying balanced is key. Patients with this skin type often do not tolerate rapid, aggressive treatments.

 

Oily

Oily Skin

Oily skin is characterized by overactive sebaceous glands. The skin is thicker and has large, sometimes congested pores. Due to oil on the surface, your skin will appear shiny. Oily skin also tends to fall or droop with age. It’s important to use products that are strong enough to remove and help control oilyness and oil-free products are a great choice.

 

Oily + Significantly Photo-Damaged

Oily + Signficantly Photo-Damaged Skin

Oily, thicker skin tends to need a more aggressive approach when treating photo damage. Fortunately, this skin type tolerates more aggressive treatments. Addressing oily skin, prominent pores and sun-damaged skin.

 

Dry

Dry Skin

In dry skin, the sebaceous glands are inactive or do not produce enough sebum for adequate moisture levels. Patients that experience dry skin usually have dehydrated skin, small pores, thin skin, and are more prone to wrinkles and fine lines. Products should be gentle and non-stripping. and provide a stronger barrier to protect and retain the skin’s moisture.

 

Dry + Photo-Damaged

Dry + Photo-Damaged Skin

Dry skin is thin, anti-aging and corrective treatments should be conservative until the skin learns to tolerate many of the active ingredients we prefer to use for the sun-damaged skin. The products used are specifically selected to your degree of dryness and tolerance.

 

Skincare Products

Dr. Kenkel, along with our aestheticians, is dedicated to helping you make informed skincare product selections in order to achieve healthy, beautiful skin. We will individualize and monitor your results in a prescribed skincare program that will meet your skin’s needs and your lifestyle.

Skin Rejuvenation

The Clinical Center for Cosmetic Laser Treatment integrates skincare with advancements in ablative and non-ablative treatments for skin rejuvenation.

Enjoy freedom from unsightly skin conditions with a non-invasive treatment that’s tailored just for you. Whether it’s depilation, red or brown pigmentation reduction, leg vein removal, or facial rejuvenation, consultation with one of our certified medical aestheticians will help you make an informed decision.

Laser Treatments

Ablative techniques are more aggressive and address deeper pigmentation and wrinkles. The downside is prolonged recovery time.

Fractional Resurfacing

This laser treatment improves skin texture, tone, and in some cases, acne scarring. Recovery is variable, depending on how aggressive a treatment is recommended. Recuperation time varies from a few days to a week.

Price varies by individual treatment goal.

Full Ablative Resurfacing

This procedure aggressively addresses pigmentation, texture, and wrinkles. It is not a skin tightening procedure. The laser creates a controlled skin injury, which stimulates collagen production and improves skin quality. Up to ten days are needed for skin to completely peel and mild redness may take as long as two to three months to disappear. This is our preferred treatment for moderate depth wrinkles due to sun damage and aging.

Price varies by individual treatment goal.

Halo®

Halo is a hybrid laser that combines non-ablative and ablative laser wavelengths. This customized fractional laser treatment improves fine lines, pore size and texture and restores a healthy glow and skin appearance. Halo vaporizes aged tissue with less thermal injury and downtime. Recovery time varies between five to seven days. **

Price varies by individual treatment goal.

MOXI®

MOXI® is a 1927nm wavelength laser safe for all skin types. This non-ablative fractional treatment targets the early signs of aging and sun damage. With minimal downtime from treatment, MOXI® is perfect for a busy lifestyle to keep skin refreshed and vibrant. ** ***

Price varies by individual treatment goal.

MOXI® and Hero® BBL treatment can be performed in combination at the same appointment, to improve both sun damage and pigmentation for enhanced anti-aging results.

Leg Veins/ Telangectasias

Laser technology and sclerotherapy help eliminate the appearance of spider veins: prominent blood vessels on the legs. They are not broken blood vessels as is commonly believed. It is thought that heredity, excessive standing, weight gain, hormonal changes, and pregnancy may be some of the causes. Lasers can help clear unsightly blood vessels on the nose, cheek, and chin.

Price varies by individual treatment goal.

Laser Hair Reduction

Hair reduction technology has improved dramatically and allows for the safe and effective treatment of all hair-bearing skin types, from the very fair to the deeply pigmented. The number and success of treatments depends on which body area is addressed and the color and hair growth pattern. We can help determine if you are a candidate for hair reduction.

Price varies by individual treatment goal.

Laser Skin Therapies

Our medical aestheticians are experts in skin care.
Our medical aestheticians are experts in skin care.

Non-ablative therapies preserve the epidermis, the outer layer of the skin, and focus on the deeper dermal structures to create more youthful skin without prolonged healing. These non-invasive treatments are for the removal of red or brown pigmentation, skin tightening, or facial rejuvenation.

Levulan Photodynamic Therapy (PDT)

Photodynamic therapy uses light to treat actinic keratosis, or rough patches of skin caused by excessive sun exposure that can develop into squamous cell carcinomas. A topical solution is first applied to the skin, and then the area is exposed to a bright light, which destroys the actinic keratosis. Some anti-aging protection may be provided by photodynamic therapy.

Price varies by individual treatment goal.

BBL Hero®

Employing new technology, this light-based treatment can improve skin appearance with greater speed, efficacy, and comfort than previous IPL and BBL modalities. Hero® is ideal for uneven pigmentation, redness, and skin tone and texture concerns. Hero® requires fewer treatments for a faster, radiant result. ** ***

Price varies by individual treatment goal.

Photorejuvenation

Photorejuvenation erases skin damage by applying broad spectrum light within the skin, targeting pigment and expanded blood vessels or rosacea on the face as well as the neck, chest, and hands. Photorejuvenation may also improve skin texture and reduce pore size. It is the only therapy that targets both red and brown discoloration and requires minimal downtime. Most patients undergo a series of three to five treatments. Maintenance treatments twice a year may be required.

Price varies by individual treatment goal.

Skin Tightening

We currently use two different technologies to achieve skin tightening:

FaceTite®/Morpheus® uses an internal application of radiofrequency energy and an external application of radiofrequency through energy-assisted microneedling. This treatment creates small areas of injury throughout the skin that optimize collagen and elastin deposition.

Profound® is radio frequency through a microneedling temperature-controlled device. Delivering RF energy to a precise depth creates injury which can improve skin laxity by stimulating elastin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid production.

Price varies by individual treatment goal.

It is important to recognize that these treatments are not a replacement for surgery and will not achieve the results that surgical procedures can. Not every patient is a candidate for these procedures. We will help you determine whether you are a candidate and what your expectations for treatment success may be. Because of the knowledge and experience of our team, you can be certain that we will only recommend treatments that will best meet your individual needs.

Clinical Treatments

Individualized treatment is based on your skin’s specific needs.

Chemical Peels

We offer several intensive chemical treatments designed to support and stimulate elastin and collagen development. Cellular turnover aides the skin in the removal of uneven pigmentation, wrinkles, and active acne. Pores appear more refined and the overall texture of your skin will improve, revealing your beautiful skin. A pre-treatment consultation is necessary for all chemical peel treatments.

MicroPeel

The MicroPeel procedure is a three-step clinical procedure combining dermaplaning or exfoliation, chemical peel, and cryogenic therapy to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, hyper-pigmentation, laxity, and skin imperfections. For optimal results, a series of four to six treatments is recommended.

Peri- and Post-Operative Skincare

Skincare becomes even more important before and after cosmetic and reconstructive surgery. Whether you are having face or body surgery, your skin will absorb stress. Facials, massage, and physician-directed skincare products work together to produce skin that is stronger and more resilient when faced with the challenge of surgery. Your aesthetician can help provide you with guidance on how to care for your skin during this time.

Dermaplaning

Exfoliating treatment that involves gently scraping the skin’s surface with a sterile surgical scalpel to remove outer most layer of dead skin cells, along with “peach fuzz.” Skin instantly appears smoother and brighter.

Skinpen® Microneedling

The first FDA-approved microneedling device clinically proven to treat acne scarring, texture, and fine lines by creating controlled micro-injuries which stimulate the production of new collagen. For optimal results, we recommend a series of three treatments.
