We proudly introduce to you our newest laser, Fotona

Over the years, the focus in cosmetic dermatology has been primarily on upper face rejuvenation through volume restoration and wrinkle correction. In 2017, we anticipate a greater emphasis on lower face rejuvenation.  Restoring the lower face becomes important as we age due to laxity from a variety of reasons.  Progressive breakdown of our dermis (the deeper layer of skin) and subcutaneous fat, as well as collagen depletion, lead to prominent jowls and lax jawlines.  Firming up the jawline and giving definition to the lower face provide balance to a beautiful upper face, which is key to maintaining a youthful heart-shaped … Continue reading

PRP hair restoration is now available at Skin Spectrum

Hair loss is often an avoided topic of conversation, as the general belief is that nothing can be done.  Not only is hair loss distressing to the patient for cosmetic reasons, but can lead to feelings of embarrassment and decreased self-confidence.  Recent developments in the treatment of hair loss have opened new doors.  Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a promising treatment for hair loss secondary to age-related hormone depletion (Androgenic Alopecia) and some autoimmune conditions (Alopecia Areata).  Skin Spectrum is excited to offer this innovative, safe treatment.

Skin Spectrum Launches Kybella

Skin Spectrum is proud to be a national leader in launching Kybella, the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment that permanently destroys fat cells in the submental area (commonly referred to as the ‘double chin’).  Since FDA approval in April 2015, only a select number of top cosmetic physicians in the nation have been trained to inject Kybella and to educate other physicians on its use.  Dr. Comstock was part of the first group of physicians trained to be Kybella educators, and earlier this month, Skin Spectrum was the site of the first official Kybella training session in the United … Continue reading
