FRAXEL® DUAL LASER
Never before has laser skin resurfacing been so safe, effective and easily tailored to your skin type and aesthetic needs. The latest technology in skin resurfacing, the Fraxel® dual laser combines deep and superficial wavelengths of light to address multiple concerns in one treatment.
The 1550 setting targets fine lines and wrinkles, while tightening skin to leave a younger appearance. It is also capable of minimizing scarring from acne, trauma or surgical procedures.
The more superficial, 1927 setting gives skin a brilliant glow by removing age spots and sun damage. This unique, dual technology, enables customization of treatments, based on our patient’s specific needs.
Only board certified dermatologists with extensive training in administering laser surgery provide this service to our patients, offering a combined 25+ years of experience.
Botox® and Dysport® provide a safe, non-invasive approach to reducing fine lines and deep wrinkles. They are proteins that work at the neuromuscular junction to temporarily relax the muscles causing unwanted wrinkles, and to prevent new wrinkles from forming.
Areas of treatment include:
- Vertical furrows between the eyes
- Horizontal forehead lines
- Crows feet
- Vertical lines around the mouth
- Wrinkle on the nose
Only board certified dermatologists with extensive training in administering Botox® and Dysport® provide this service to our patients, offering a combined 25+ years of experience.
JUVEDERM® | VOLUMA® |VOLBELLA® |BELLAFILL®
Fillers are injectable gels that temporarily add volume to the skin. We offer a wide range of both Hyaluronic acid and PMMA/Collagen fillers that are specifically tailored to our patient’s needs.
Common areas to inject are:
- Prominent nasolabial folds and marionette lines
- Sunken cheek bones
- Thinning lips
- Under eye area
Hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers include Juvederm Ultra XC®, Juvederm Ultra Plus XC®, Voluma® Volbella® These are temporary fillers that commonly last 9 to 12 months; however, Voluma® may last up to two years. HA is a naturally occurring substance in the skin and does not require prior allergy testing.
Bellafill® is a semi-permanent filler using a combination of collagen gel and biocompatible PMMA microspheres. The collagen works by adding immediate volume while the PMMA creates a matrix to stimulate your body’s own collagen production. Lasting five years, it is one of the longest lasting fillers available. Bellafill® requires a skin test to identify patients who may be allergic to bovine collagen.
Only board certified dermatologists with extensive training in administering dermal fillers provide this service to our patients, offering a combined 25+ years of experience.
Bellafill Safety Information
Many patients are frustrated by the appearance of fullness under the chin, which is often referred to as “double chin." This is a difficult area to improve with weight loss alone.
Kybella® is a safe, effective treatment to reduce unwanted fat and tighten skin under the chin. It is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the digestion and absorption of unwanted fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, it causes destruction of fat cells. The destroyed cells can no longer store or accumulate fat. Most patients experience visible results within two to four treatments.
Each treatment is administered one month apart and the results are permanent. Mild swelling, bruising, discomfort, numbness and redness are common.

Acne scarring can be an emotionally distressing condition for patients. Our board certified dermatologists understand this and will start by addressing and treating any active outbreaks. Acne scarring is complex and often needs combined therapies such as laser resurfacing with our Fraxel® dual laser system, filler agents such as Bellafill, dermabrasion, and subscisions. Let our experienced physicians choose the best treatments for you.
TRAUMATIC AND SURGICAL SCAR REVISION
While most scars become less visible over time, some scars can be problematic. The appearance and sensation of scars can be improved through a variety of methods including topical agents, therapeutic injections, laser therapy and surgical scar revision.
SPIDER VEIN TREATMENTS
The Cutera Excel V™ laser is a safe and effective to rid yourself of unwanted veins. This fast and easy procedure uses cutting edge technology to comfortably fade you unwanted vessels after 1-3 treatments. The laser uses specific wavelengths of light target oxyhemoglobin in your vessels. There is a transfer of energy that renders the vessels incompetent, ensuring maximum results with minimal down time.
Laser treatments are often combined with sclerotherapy to maximize results. Asclera is a sclerosant solution that is injected in small leg veins. After injection, the solution displaces the blood and irritates the inside of the blood vessel.
The body creates an inflammatory response that destroys the damaged vessel. Blood flow is redirected to healthy vessels. Mild swelling and bruising can occur with treatment and patients are encouraged to wear compression stockings for a short period of time following treatment.
A consult with your board certified dermatologist will determine which treatment or combination of treatments is best for you.
FACIAL REDNESS TREATMENT
Whether you suffer from rosacea or have diffuse redness from sun damage, facial redness can be uncomfortable and embarrassing. Topical creams and oral medications often fall short of targeting redness, flushing and dilated facial vessels. Fortunately, the cosmetic dermatologists at ASCS can help you to find the best combination of therapies.
Lasers deliver energy to the skin which is absorbed by blood vessels, scars, port wine stains, and other vascular lesions. Multiple treatments are required for optimal results. The physicians at ASCS use cutting edge laser technology including the Cutera Excel V™ laser. Schedule a consult to learn more about treating facial redness.

Dermaplaning is a manual, physical exfoliation technique that safely and efficiently removes surface debris with a dermaplaning blade. The dermaplaning blade is held against taut skin at a 45-degree angle and stroked in a manner similar to shaving.

This treatment has many benefits and is quick, safe and effective with no downtime. For optimal smooth skin results, repeat treatments are recommended every three-four weeks.
