Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)

At Cosmetic Surgery Center, one of our most advanced solutions for treating multiple skin imperfections is intense pulsed light treatments, also known as IPL. This procedure is a non-surgical, safe and effective treatment for sun-damaged, aging skin through a process called "photo-rejuvenation." IPL comes with a number of benefits, including the following:

  • FDA-approved, state-of-the-art technology
  • Provides impressive, long-lasting results
  • Can be applied to any skin surface
  • Patients can return to most normal daily activities immediately following treatment
  • Treats multiple skin issues simultaneously

Brown spots, redness, and broken capillaries are major contributors to making us appear older than we are, and certainly older than we feel! It's amazing how removing those concerns and evening out our skin tone can help us look and feel years younger and healthier, too. Photo-rejuvenation is ideal for men and women with sun-damaged, aging skin. Over a series of treatments, visible signs of sun damage and aging can be corrected, restoring your skin to a more radiant, youthful appearance.

The face has an extensive network of veins and tiny capillaries. Aging, trauma, sun exposure, heredity, and lifestyle factors can cause them to break, causing red lines or blotches on the skin. IPL not only treats visible skin imperfections, but it can also help ease deeper sun damage that has yet to reach the surface of the skin. This treatment can improve the appearance of:

  • Brown spots
  • Melasma
  • Rosacea or redness
  • Broken capillaries or spider veins
  • Large pores
  • Birthmarks
  • Scars
  • Newer stretch marks
  • Uneven skin tone or texture

IPL improves both the appearance and health of your skin. These treatments are performed in the comfort and privacy of our skincare suite. IPL can also be used to eliminate unwanted face and body hair, as well as spider veins. In some cases, you may be a better candidate for laser resurfacing.


Microdermabrasion is a pain-free, no-downtime form of skin rejuvenation that removes the topmost layer of cells to leave your skin supple, vibrant, and refreshed. At Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Center, microdermabrasion is immediately followed by a glycolic peel, a vitamin-oxygen mist, facial massage, and medical-grade skincare products.

As we age, our dead skin cells do not slough off as rapidly as they once did. This abundance of dead skin cells creates a tired, dull appearance that amplifies our skin's imperfections. We recommend microdermabrasion for patients with mild to moderate sun damage, large pores, mild acne scarring, and fine lines. It's also an excellent choice for those who wish to extend the life of their surgical results, making it an excellent maintenance protocol. This treatment is performed in the privacy of our skin rejuvenation suite and can be performed on any skin surface and any skin type.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are a form of exfoliation used to freshen and brighten the skin by improving its texture and coloration. Chemical peels are available in various strengths, depths, and formulations. Our medical skincare specialist will assist you in selecting the appropriate peel to meet your needs at the time of your evaluation. Chemical peels may be combined with other specialized mask or hydration treatments. They have a cumulative effect, so most patients get the best results through a series of 4 to 6 treatments.
