Puyallup Dermatology Clinic is proud to announce that, in addition to medical and surgical dermatology, we now offer a full range of esthetic services.
With Growth Factor SkinPen™ Microneedling is a safe and effective therapy used to improve skin texture, pore size, reduce fine lines, wrinkling, and scars. SkinPen™ utilizes a tiny array of needles that create thousands of microscopic channels in the skin. This process stimulates your body’s natural wound healing response to increase collagen production and promote a youthful appearance in the skin. Directly following treatment, a proprietary blend of growth factors are added to the skin, enhancing the skin rejuvenation process. This treatment truly rejuvenates your skin from the inside out. While visible results can be seen in as little as one treatment, series of 3-6 treatments is recommended and tailored to each individual’s needs.
DermaPlane is a non-invasive procedure that removes the top layers of skin to reveal a smoother and brighter complexion. This process of exfoliation allows skincare to penetrate deeper and boost overall results.
Chemical Peels are a safe and highly effective treatment for a variety of skin conditions such as uneven skin tone and texture, chronic sun damage, fine lines, and acne.
Types of Injectables
Given the wide array of injectable cosmetic products available, our physicians will tailor a customized treatment to meet your unique needs. Below is a brief overview of the classes of products available.
Neuromodulators (Botox and Dysport)
Neuromodulators are a great option at improving both fine lines and wrinkles. These products are derived from neuromodulating proteins, precisely inhibiting localized muscle contractions implicated in wrinkle formation. Effects of treatment usually last between 3-6 months for most patients, with some studies indicating long term improvement with repeated treatments.
Commonly referred to as the non-surgical facelift, dermal fillers provide volume and lift to reverse the natural signs of aging.
We offer multiple dermal fillers. These products are derived from a naturally occurring skin substrate, hyaluronic acid, which incorporates into the dermal layer of skin to provide volume and restore the youthful qualities of your skin. Hyaluronic acid naturally attracts water and stimulates collagen production, helping to smooth wrinkles, plump the lips, and reduce the appearance of scars. Effects of treatment usually last between 6-12 months.
Sciton Laser Treatments
Lasers have become a mainstay in cosmetic medicine. By utilizing specialized wavelengths of light, lasers harness this energy to improve the appearance of aging or sun damaged skin. Below is a list of laser services provided at Puyallup Dermatology.
Forever Young BBL
Photo-rejuvenation with our BBL (Broadband Light) sets a new standard in treating skin conditions associated with aging, active life-styles and sun damage.
DNA repairing Broadband Light treatments target facial redness, unwanted pigmentation, and improves overall skin clarity. The Forever Young BBL™ protocol has been shown to actually reverse the causes of aging skin! Forever Young BBL™ is the only phototherapy treatment that is research-proven to slow down the aging process of the skin. According to a study conducted at Stanford University, the BBL treatment actually changes the genetic expression of your DNA. This process restores clarity, firmness and improves the overall health and texture of the skin.
While it is a perfect treatment for rosacea and hyperpigmentation, BBL is also available for permanent hair reduction and treats active acne.
Benefits of regular BBL treatments:
- Results can be seen on the first treatment. The best results are obtained with a series of 4-6 treatments spaced 2-4 weeks apart.
- Less invasive than surgery or resurfacing treatments.
- Delivers quicker and more effective results than topicals.
- Improves fine lines, wrinkles, broken capillaries and discoloration.
- Treats face, neck, chest, legs, arms and hands comfortably and effectively.
- Stimulates new cell growth and collagen to firm and tighten the skin.
Skin Tightening with SkinTyte
SkinTyte™ is also part of Sciton’s DNA repairing BBL system- it focuses on the outer layers of the skin creating collagen and a more youthful complexion. Typically done for the lower face and neck and also may be performed on the abdomen, inner thighs, knees and hands. Series of six treatments, one month apart are recommended.
Halo™ is a fractionated resurfacing laser that utilizes a state-of-the-art combination of non-ablative and ablative wavelengths of light energy to generate microscopic treatment zones in the skin. As the skin heals after treatment, your body’s own restorative proteins help eliminate years of sun damage to restore a luminous glow while regenerating new healthy tissue. Halo™ reveals a brighter, tighter, and more radiant complexion. Halo™ has been well studied at improving multiple skin concerns such as uneven pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, acne scarring, and photodamaged skin. Visible improvement in your complexion is typically seen in as little as one treatment. For best results, 2-4 treatments scheduled 4 weeks apart is recommended and tailored to each individuals needs.
