A weathered face can help one project wisdom or blend in at Mount Rushmore but is otherwise considered undesirable. Stand out from monumental mugs with today’s Groupon: for $35, you get a microdermabrasion treatment at Aesthetic Medicine – Dr. Darm in Tigard (a $100 value).
The knowledgeable staff at Aesthetic Medicine soothes a variety of epidermal ailments with skin treatments. Gentle hands swirl a sudsy cleanser across facial terrain before unleashing the scrubbing power of a microdermabrasion treatment, which exfoliates away superficial layers of skin to diminish fine lines, vapid conversations, and acne scars. A dab of moisturizer completes the 30-minute session, plumping up newly exposed cells and delaying the body's natural desertification process. Clients can request a complimentary consultation to discuss skincare concerns or the office's signature laser treatments, which help mitigate dermal concerns like acne, rosacea, and lips frozen in an insubordinate sneer.
Few people own a trademark. Dr. Jerry Darm of Aesthetic Medicine owns three. He pioneered the trademark procedures of LaserLift and LipoLift, which use noninvasive and minimally invasive techniques, respectively, to smooth fine lines and banish excess fat. To add to his repertoire, Dr. Darm added a third trademarked treatment: MiniLift. His accomplishments have led to invitations from aesthetic medical professionals around the world—including a 14-day trip to China to speak about his treatments at conferences in several cities.
The LaserLift procedure reverses damage caused by exposure to the sun, free radicals, and gravity malfunctions by regenerating collagen and tightening the skin with laser wavelengths. LipoLift destroys fat with a laser that melts fat cells through a small incision and allows them to be removed more gently than with traditional liposuction. The MiniLift is performed only by a board-certified plastic surgeon and is available only at Aesthetic Medicine. At the Lake Oswego location, which boasts more than 14,000 square feet, Dr. Darm helps patients feel beautiful in other ways, including combating spider veins with laser therapy or sclerotherapy and keeping wrinkles at bay with injectable fillers. The center's weight-loss program helps patients shed pounds under the guidance of medical specialists and dieticians.
