Aesthetic Services

Our primary goal is to accurately diagnose and treat every patients' skincare problems; however, for those who wish to further enhance their appearance, we also offer aesthetic services. Our aesthetician, along with Dr. Robert Chow, can help develop a skincare program that's right for you.

We are excited about the skincare options available to us today, particularly those that are only offered at MD offices, not your local non-medical spas and clinics! Individual skincare programs are developed in conjunction with Dr. Chow, according to skin type and each patient's goals and needs. All initial skincare consultations with the aesthetician are complimentary and can be scheduled through our front desk.

Our cosmetic services include:

Microdermabrasion
SilkPeel (Microdermabrasion for 45 min. which includes face and neck)
A breakthrough system that combines precision non-invasive exfoliation with Dermalinfusion, a deep delivery of skin-specific solutions, to improve and revitalize the skin. This procedure effectively treats all skin types and addresses skin concerns including hyperpigmentation, acne, photodamage, dehydration, and fine wrinkles.

Chemical Peels
Glycolic Peel (30 min)
Utilizes a 30% or 40% unbuffered glycolic to slough off layers of dead cells while stimulating new cell growth and collagen production. This aha chemical peel is effective in minimizing fine lines, evening out skin tone, diminishing hyperpigmentation and helping with acne. To achieve optimum results this peel is recommended in a series.

ViPeel (30 min.)
VI Peel contains a synergistic blend of powerful ingredients suitable for all skin types. This peel improves the tone, texture and clarity of skin. It reduces or eliminates age spots, treats hyperpigmentation (including melasma), and softens fine lines and wrinkles. The VI Peel is an excellent choice to address acne and reduce or eliminate acne scars, while stimulating the production of collagen, for healthier, firmer, more youthful skin. This self-neutralizing peel provides dramatic results with virtually no pain, no skin preparation and minimal downtime.

TCA Blend Peel (30 min.)
This is a blended TCA peel that is gentle on the skin but aggressive enough to treat acne, wrinkles, fine lines and hyperpigmentation without any downtime.

Facials
Clinical Facial (1 hour)
A customized facial tailored to meet your skin needs. This facial will incorporate up to two different chemical exfoliations, facial and hand massage, extractions, mask, and hydration. This facial will address skin tone, fine lines, hydration, pigmentation, clogged pores, and will leave your skin feeling soft and smooth.

Clinical Express Facial (30 min.)
For those in a hurry this is a shortened version of the clinical facial, and does not include face and hand massage.

Back Facial (1 hour)
A clinical “facial” for the back. Includes deep pore cleansing, extractions, mask, and hydration. This treatment will help with acne and scarring, and leave your back feeling refreshed and aglow for an evening out.

Teen Facial (45 min.)
A deep pore cleansing clinical facial for a teen dealing with acne. Includes exfoliation, extractions, mask, and skin care education. Recommended as a complement to medical treatment of acne.

Additional Treatments
Laser Treatment/Photofacials
Our DioLite™ 532 laser can be used for the effective treatment of vascular and pigmented skin lesions such as telangiectasia, rosacea, spider angiomas, cherry angiomas, port wine stains, lentigines, dermatosis papulosis nigra, and keratoses. Our ScanLite Scanner can be used over large area lesions including poikiloderma of civatte and matted telangiectasia. The doctor will give an initial evaluation of your dark spots (red and brown lesions) to determine an appropriate treatment program.

XTRAC Excimer
The XTRAC excimer laser treatment system is the first FDA market approved laser treatment for psoriasis and offers the latest technology for providing effective relief from unsightly and sometimes painful psoriatic skin lesions. Some of the benefits of this treatment are effective clearing in as few as four sessions, long-lasting relief (typically several months free of symptoms), and quick and easy treatment (each session lasts only a few minutes). Also the most effective proven treatment for vitiligo.

Botox®
A highly effective, non-invasive procedure that can dramatically reduce your toughest wrinkles within days. One 10-minute treatment - a few tiny injections – relaxes the muscles that can cause wrinkles and lines for up to 6 months. Unlike surgery, Botox® is fast, simple, minimally invasive with no downtime or recovery time required.*

Please bear in mind that we have a 24 hour cancellation policy, and ask that you arrive 10 minutes prior to your initial skin care appointment to complete consent forms.

*All injectible procedures are performed by Dr. Robert K. P. Chow.

Make-up touch-ups are complimentary following any service. A complete makeover is complimentary following your initial office visit. Please make sure our front desk is informed that you would like a makeover following your appointment to allow additional time for your visit.
