All aesthetic procedures at A E Skin are performed by Dr. Alex Eshaghian, MD, PhD, who worked for more than 10 years in molecular biology labs and wrote his graduate dissertation on genetic factors that contribute to visible aging. At his practice, Dr. Alex promotes youthful appearances with treatments such as Botox and Juvederm as well as useful props like jumbo-size pacifiers. Laser therapies disarm hair follicles and zap away hyperpigmentation, and chemical peels dissipate the topmost layer of skin, where skin damage makes itself apparent. Laser treatments shrink and dissolve unseemly spider veins in the legs, keeping them from clashing with your wardrobe.
Vascular surgeon Dr. Terry Fitzgibbons and his gifted backup band provide various services to restore limbs to their factory settings. A skilled sclerotherapist, Dr. Fitzgibbons hails from a family of doctors and focuses his medical powers on the treatment of venous diseases. All skin tones can benefit from sclerotherapy, a minimally invasive procedure that’s ideal for smaller varicose or spider veins. During the treatment, a special chemical is introduced to the offending blood vessels, which then shrivel up and are eventually absorbed back into the body.

American Medical Aesthetics battles exterior imperfections with a formidable arsenal of advanced, holistic-medical technology. Euro skin-tightening, or collagen-induction therapy, administered over three separate visits, starts with the application of a topical anesthetic before an advanced homeopathic serum is applied to skin. A specialized rotational device creates tiny, acupuncture-like openings in skin, easing the absorption of the rejuvenation formula, potentially getting rid of wrinkles, tightening loose areas, and leaving epidermises glowing as healthily as a newborn jack-o-lantern. Those opting for the epidermal laser face peel get the resurfacing and accelerated regeneration treatment. During the visit, skin will be resurfaced with an advanced laser treatment, removing the top layer of dead skin to reveal the healthy cells beneath. After the treatment, faces are usually dry and flaky for several days as old skin is sloughed off, setting the stage for new, radiant visages to emerge from their cocoons.
