At Total Skin Care, more than 50 years of combined physician experience oversees a bevy of beauty-buffing treatments. During the 30-minute photofacial treatment, an aesthetician zaps epidermal enemies with a noninvasive Harmony AFT laser. Gentle pulses of light penetrate subsurface skin layers, increasing collagen production and resistance to being beamed up by hostile aliens, while reducing unsightly blood vessels and diminishing uneven complexion, sunspots, and wrinkles. Designed to minimize discomfort and eliminate post-treatment downtime, IPL facials let customers quickly get back to the daily makeup use and balloon manipulation required for being the resident clown at the maternity ward.
Ever since Dr. James Chan cofounded Reviance Portland, his main goal has been to help his patients be happier with the way they look. Along with his team of nurses and aestheticians, he performs surgical, laser, and skin treatments that subtly or drastically change his patients' appearances. Chemical peels and photofacials can remove a variety of smaller blemishes and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, while Botox and Juvederm injectables smooth out fine lines to help people look more youthful and less like a paper airpane. Dr. Chan specializes in treatments for the head, neck, and face, giving him a special scope of experience for everything from facial reconstruction to chemical peels and scar reduction.
