Non-Surgical Rejuvenation treatments include:
Matrix CO2 laserLaser resurfacing tightens skin by stimulating skin cells to increase collagen formation, and also leads to improvement in wrinkles, scars, texture, and pores. CO2 lasers are known to deliver into the skin the highest amount of "stimulating heat" of any type of laser. The Matrix CO2 laser used by Dr. Irizarry safely penetrates the skin with tiny columns of laser beams, ("fractional" treatment), that leaves most of the skin intact to promote rapid healing in 3-5 days. To keep discomfort to a minimum, a strong topical numbing cream is applied before the treatment, and during the laser procedure, the patient holds a tube that delivers a cooling subzero stream of air to the site of the laser treatment. Face and neck treatments typically take about 45 minutes to complete. Learn more in this Matrix Fractional CO2 Patient Education Brochure
Botox & DysportTiny amounts of laboratory-made neurotoxin are injected with a very small needle into facial muscles that "fold" the skin causing wrinkles to form. Most of my clients prefer mild treatments of this kind that do not change their appearance, but only give them a more "relaxed" look. Treatments typically need to be repeated about every 3 months for the first 2 years, and then may be decreased in frequency as the facial muscles treated become less strong. TMJ disease and migraines also may be treated with great success by proper use of neurotoxins.
Chemical PeelsDr. Irizarry performs TCA Peels, Apeele and Obagi Blue Peels for texture improvement, and Rejuvenize & Vitalize Peels(lactic acid/salicylic acid), for skin lightening.
Radiofrequency Skin TreatmentA mild radiofrequency current is used to apply a small amount of heat to the upper layer of skin. This can be used to easily remove sebborheic keratoses, spider veins, skin tags, and other superficial skin irregularities
