The first step in treating acne is identifying what kind of acne the patient has: cystic, papulopustular, or comedonal. Some patients may have all three types. Treatments may include prescription antibiotics, hormonal blockers, and topical medications. In the most severe cases, we are licensed to prescribe Accutane. If a patient is prescribed Accutane, monthly visits are required along with routine lab work. At Unit Skin Studio, we are uniquely poised to incorporate prescription (only if needed) and non prescription modalities. We have an amazing non prescription private acne line that not only fights acne, but also addresses the problematic pigmentation left behind. Chemical peels always help with this condition, and there is always the “emergency savior” an intralesional injection into a cyst to help shrink the lesion almost instantly.

There are essentially 2 main categories of facial lines – dynamic and static. Dynamic lines are those produced by the actions of the muscles. For example- the lines we see when we smile. In contrast, static facial lines are those that are present at rest. Typically speaking, there is some component of both lines present – one may have few lines at rest, but these lines become much more dramatic during animation. With that in mind, there are really 2 main forms of treatment for facial lines: Dynamic lines are best treated by Botox Cosmetic – which work by relaxing the treated muscles. This makes sense since dynamic lines are from the movement of these underlying muscles.

Many people may find themselves with dark circles or hollows below their lower eyelids. This common hollowing effect can create the illusion of darkening around the eyes usually is resistant to regular beauty products.
This problem can be corrected with Belotero with fantastic aesthetic results. It works by attracting water to the surrounding collagen fibers, resulting in tissue plumping and, therefore diminishing the hollow, shadowed appearance.
This effect can last from six months to a year, and then it has to be repeated to maintain the volume that leads to a more youthful, brighter-eyed appearance.
A radiant complexion is one that reflects light. In our youth, our skin cells turn over every 28 days. But by your 20s, turnover slows, and between 30 and 40 that rate slows to every 40 days. Dead skin cells do not reflect light causing a lackluster look to our skin. In order to have the glow of youth – we must exfoliate to hasten cell turnover. Retinoids and glycolic acids are the fist step in speeding up those sluggish cells. The next step is chemical peels, which reveal luminous skin that reflects light and smooths uneven skin tone.

A recent study from a national hair removal company revealed that women spend more than $10,000 on hair removal products and services over the course of their lifetime, and will spend more than 58 days removing hair from their bodies over a period of approximately 53 years.Women use methods such as shaving, waxing, creams, and plucking to remove unwanted hair, all of which cost women time, stress and money. On average, women can save $7,000 by receiving laser hair removal on the areas of the body where the hair bothers them the most. When compared to a lifetime of waxing, women can save $20,000 by receiving laser hair removal on the areas of the body they usually wax. Our staff is experienced in providing patients with laser hair removal that lasts and eliminates the need to shave, wax, or spend time doing any other hair removal treatment.

Unit Skin Studio is uniquely poised to treat Rosacea as if you were at a dermatologist’s office. We are able to diagnose and assess the different types of Rosacea, and treat the papultopustular types with prescription medication and prescription topical treatments in addition to laser. For simple redness (erythema) and broken blood vessels (telengectasias) we feel the laser of choice is the IPL. All of our treatments are well tolerated and usually require no anesthesia. Following treatment the area may feel warm, but patients can get back to their daily routine directly after treatment with confidence. Improvement can usually be seen immediately, and several treatments may be needed 6 weeks apart. In addition to treating the redness and broken blood vessels of Rosacea, the IPL treatments also benefit the patient by producing collagen to give a youthful glow.

Until recently, there have not been many good treatments for stretch marks (striae) and Dermatologists have traditionally sent the patient home with a Retinoid prescription and prepared the patient for less than optimal expectations. At Unit, however, we use ResurFX which provides lasting results for this all too common problem. ResurFX technology has been clinically shown to dramatically improve stretch marks on the body. It is sound technology that delivers energy deeper in the skin and allows your skin to heal in a manner that helps it improve stretch marks so you can feel confident showing off your skin.

Platelet Rich Plasma Hair Restoration is a non-surgical treatment that utilizes the body’s own platelet rich plasma (PRP) to help restore hair in patients with pattern hair loss. A small amount of blood is drawn from the patient. The blood is then spun down in a centrifuge and prepared by isolating the platelet rich plasma component, which naturally contains a large amount of growth factors. The plasma is mixed with a small amount of calcium to activate the platelets and this solution is re-injected into the patient’s scalp in areas that are experiencing hair loss or thinning. Anyone experiencing thinning hair of the scalp is potentially a candidate. At Unit we will schedule a complementary consultation with our experts to determine the best course of treatment.
