Non-Surgical Skin Rejuvenation
Mini Make Over
Karen Struck, RN is our skin rejuvenation specialist. She is certified in laser skin rejuvenation and injectables completing her training at the National Laser institute in Scottsdale Arizona. She has completed additional laser training at Solta Medical using the Fraxel Dual laser. Over 2,000 patients have been treated at this center, and over 20 laser FDA research studies have been completed at this center under Dr. Struck’s supervision.
The Fraxel Dual laser has two settings. The 1927 wavelength is great for sun damage, brown spots and fine lines. The other wavelength of the Dual laser is 1550, and this is better at deeper lines. Combining these two lasers into a single Dual laser, gives Karen the ability to treat most skin imperfections with minimal down time. We also offer Fotofacial or IPL which is great at treating red in the skin, rosacea and broken capillaries.
A non-surgical mini make-over is done in the office by combining these lasers with botox and various fillers. Karen can create a mini make over for you based on your skin type, and she can then recommend a maintenance skin care program to maintain your results. A simple program like this can be extremely rewarding for our patients. New patients often say, “I want to look like the patient I saw in the waiting room,” and they are very surprised to find out that the patient they saw had a simple office make over.
