Other treatments include a series of peels, such as microdermabrasion or glycolic acid with Jessners, and prescription strength topical lotions which also lighten. To find out which options are best for you, schedule a Skin Rejuvenation Consult. Dr. Comite will evaluate your skin and customize treatment specific to you. Feel more comfortable wearing less makeup, revealing a healthier, attractive you.
You don’t need to hide your legs anymore. There is a highly effective way to treat spider veins, those small, unsightly clusters of red, blue and purple veins that most commonly appear on the thighs, knees, calves and ankles. Dr. Comite has verysuccessfully treated these unwanted veins with sclerotherapy, the technique of injecting a solution into these veins using a tiny needle. The solution destroys the inner lining of the blood vessel, causing it to collapse and disappear. In some cases, Dr. Comite will treat tiny red veins with the V-beam™ laser. Now is a great time to start treatment so that by summer you’ll be happy to reveal your “new” legs.
Massage Therapy not only feels wonderful but is also a great way to improve your health and well-being. When you receive a massage, your body and mind are affected in many positive ways.
BOTOX®, an FDA approved natural, purified protein, is a highly effective, non-surgicalprocedure that can dramatically reduce your toughest wrinkle by temporarily relaxing specific facial muscles. Dr. Comite has successfully treated her cosmetic patients with BOTOX® since 1996.
Pore size is a very common concern of many patients. With the latest technological advances, lasers have been developed which can now decrease the size and appearance of facial pores. Lasers help to create new collagen, thus “plumping” the skin, creating more volume and minimizing the pore opening. If you are interested in learning about laser treatments or have other cosmetic concerns, please schedule a Cosmetic Evaluation with Dr. Comite, at which time she can evaluate your skin and let you know which treatment options are best for you.
