Skin Care

In addition to several plastic surgery procedures offered, Dr. Shafaie works with a certified aesthetician to provide skin care options for your skin rejuvenation needs. From injectables to laser treatments to microdermabrasion, we have the skin care solution. To complement these services, we also sell Obagi products for before and after your treatments. See below for the many skin care services we provide.

BOTOX©

Botox Cosmetic is a brand name for the naturally occurring botulinum toxin, an FDA-approved treatment which is injected into the muscles that cause frown lines between the brows. After the injections, you will notice improvement in these frown lines within days and the results can last up to 4 months.

Restylane©

Restylane is the brand name of a line of products using hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler. Like other hyaluronic dermal fillers, Restylane is free from animal proteins which eliminate risks of allergic reactions. Restylane is most commonly used to improve facial wrinkles and folds including nasolabial folds.

Juvedérm™

Juvederm another brand of FDA-approved hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler. This smooth consistency gel helps add volume and hydration to your face. Juvederm is most commonly used to treat your smile lines, or nasolabial folds. This injectable process takes about on 15 minutes to complete, and results can be immediate.

Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is a skin-freshening technique that helps repair facial skin that takes a beating from the sun and the effects of aging. A fine sandblaster-like device is used to spray tiny crystals across the face, combining gentle abrasion with suction to remove the problem areas of the outer layer of your skin. As with other skin rejuvenation techniques, more than one treatment may be needed to reduce or remove fine wrinkles and unwanted pigmentation.

Laser Skin Resurfacing

In laser resurfacing, sometimes called "laser peel," a carbon dioxide (CO2) laser is used to remove areas of damaged or wrinkled skin, layer by layer. The procedure is most commonly used to minimize the appearance of fine lines, especially around the mouth and the eyes. However, it is also effective in treating facial scars or areas of uneven pigmentation. Laser resurfacing may be performed on the whole face or in specific regions.

Laser Hair Removal

Removing unwanted hair on your own can be very time consuming and even painful. If you are tired of shaving every day or you are finished with getting wax treatments, you may be a great candidate for laser hair removal. We use a rapid and gentle laser technique to destroy hair follicles in your problem area. While only one treatment can produce some long term results, it is always recommended to return for multiple treatments to experience the best results.

Laser Vein Removal

Laser technology today lets us perform laser vein removal faster and more effective without rupture or extensive bruising. This permanent laser technique provides an easy solution with very minimal discomfort. The most common areas for vein removal are in the face and legs.
