~ SKIN THERAPIES ~
Microneedling stimulates the skin’s healing response and produces natural looking results by encouraging the production of your body’s own collagen. The micro channels created by our disposable cartridges can create adjustable needle depths for tailored, effective treatments of scars, stretch marks, enlarged pores, skin toning and rejuvenation, and fine lines or wrinkles. Further enhance your results by driving topical nutrients and growth factors harvested from your plasma deeper into the skin. Treatments can possibly be completed at 4-6 week intervals, may produce mild discomfort, can require minimal downtime, and are safe for all skin tones on the face and body. Make an appointment today to see if microneedling therapy is right for you. View our Microneedling After Care Instructions.
SkinPen is a FDA cleared microneedling device that is clinically proven to safely and effectively treat facial acne scars.

Restore photo-damaged skin, reduce pore size and create new collagen with this superior exfoliation process. Rediscover smoother, softer skin, while improving the penetration of your skin care products, chemical peels and laser treatments. A special wand is used to gently buff your skin, with virtually little-to-no downtime, and possibly minimal discomfort.

This treatment treats the dead skin cells in the epidermis to stimulate and rejuvenate the skin surface. This gentle exfoliation effectively reduces the upper skin layer, the stratum corneum, while also reducing the fine, velous facial hair that can trap excess dirt and oil.
Fine Needle Desiccation
Fine Needle desiccation is the destruction of certain skin lesions by using an electric current and microprobe in order to seal off the blood supply or remove the lesion altogether. It is well suited for those small skin lesions that are bothersome, like dilated pores, cherry angiomas, spider angiomas, ice pick scars, broken capillaries (telangiectasis), sebaceous hyperplasia, and skin tags. Most lesions require 1-3 treatments, with the exception of dilated pores and ice pick scars which may require 6 or more treatments. As many patients get more lesions over time, maintenance sessions may be necessary.
Avoid taking Aspirin, Ibuprofen, Alcohol, Vitamin E, or Fish oil 3 days prior to and following treatment in order to minimize bleeding and bruising. You may take Tylenol prior to appointment however to minimize discomfort. Depending on your skin type, you may be asked to pre-treat the skin for 2 weeks prior with a pigment stabilizing cream and for a few weeks after to avoid hyper-pigmenting (darkening) in the treated area.
After care consists of topical antibiotic ointment and not wearing makeup or using abrasive skin care products. Cold compresses will minimize swelling. To avoid complications, avoid sauna, steam room, hot tub/hot showers, sweating, exercising, and long-term daylight exposure and long-term daylight traveling for 3 days.
Nanofat Stem Cell Facial Rejuvenation
Use your body’s own growth factors and the regenerative capacity of stem cells within your own fat to improve skin quality. After a small amount of fat is harvested and processed, a nanofat emulsion is introduced into the skin. After naturally integrating into tissue, patients have confirmed an improvement in texture, elasticity, glow, firmness, fine wrinkles and hydration for an overall more healthy and youthful skin appearance. Consult with Dr. Doolabh today to see if stem cell rejuvenation is right for you!
