Moles are brown or black growths, usually round or oval, that can appear anywhere on the skin. They can be rough or smooth, flat or raised, single or in multiples. They occur when cells that are responsible for skin pigmentation, known as melanocytes, grow in clusters instead of being spread out across the skin. Generally, moles are less than one-quarter inch in size. Most moles appear by the age of 20, although some moles may appear later in life. Read More »

Psoriasis affects as many as 7.5 million people in the United States. About 20,000 children under age 10 have been diagnosed with psoriasis. Read More »

This inflammation of the face can affect the cheeks, nose, chin, forehead or eyelids. More than 14 million Americans suffer from rosacea.

Skin cancer is the most common form of human cancers, affecting more than one million Americans every year. One in five Americans will develop skin cancer at some point in their lives. Skin cancers are generally curable if caught early. However, people who have had skin cancer are at a higher risk of developing a new skin cancer, which is why regular self-examination and doctor visits are imperative. Read More »
Warts are small, harmless growths that appear most frequently on the hands and feet. Sometimes they look flat and smooth, other times they have a dome-shaped or cauliflower-like appearance. Warts can be surrounded by skin that is either lighter or darker. Warts are caused by different forms of Human Papilloma Virus (HPV). They occur in people of all ages and can spread from person-to-person and from one part of the body to another. Warts are benign (noncancerous) and generally painless. Read More »
Wrinkles are a natural part of the aging process. They occur most frequently in areas exposed to the sun, such as the face, neck, back of the hands and forearms. Over time, skin gets thinner, drier and less elastic. Ultimately, this causes wrinkles - either fine lines or deep furrows. In addition to sun exposure, premature aging of the skin is associated with smoking, heredity and skin type (higher incidence among people with fair hair, blue-eyes and light skin). Read More »
Matrix CO2 Fractional Laser
The Matrix Fractional CO2 laser system is recognized by patients and medical professionals as the laser of choice for outstanding treatment results. A safe, long lasting and effective treatment for wrinkles, skin texture irregularities, pigmented lesions, fine lines, acne scars and sun damage.
The high speed UltraFine Fractional Scanner will direct a grid pattern of tiny pulses of light at the skin. Each pulse delivers a column of energy that can reach the skin’s dermal layer. This stimulates a natural renewal process of the body’s own collagen. Also, because the laser beam has been fractionized, small areas of untreated skin will be left between the treated spots. By strategically performing the procedure in this way, the healing process is accelerated.
The treatment lasts about 30 minutes. Treatment sensations vary from person to person. As tiny pulses of energy are delivered into the skin, most patients will experience a warm sharp feeling and an immediate tightening of the skin, most patients’ look and feel like they have a mild sunburn for a few days after the treatment.
As a person ages, their collage production begins to decline which leads to the breakdown of the skin’s underlying support structure. Daily exposure to UV rays and other environmental elements can cause the skin to become discolored and premature wrinkles may emerge. Treatments with the Matric Fraction CO2 laser will enhance the skin’s strength and elasticity. The skin will have a smoother, tighter texture and pigmentation problems will begin to diminish.
IPL Laser Treatment
From nothing more than light, you can expect skin that looks and feels healthier. Apex provides visible improvement of active acne, uneven pigmentation, vascular lesions, sun-damaged skin, and can even permanently reduce unwanted body hair. As IPL treatments are gentle by nature, you can return to daily activities immediately after a 15-20 minute treatment session. You clinician will determine the number of treatments after diagnosing your skin condition. Sun exposure should be avoided for several weeks before and after treatment for optimal results
Your skin continually renews itself by shedding old skin cells and replacing them with new healthy cells, but this process slows with age. The IPL System triggers skin renewal for each area treated by exposing targeted cells to light energy. Based on your skin condition, Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is focused and filtered to a particular wavelength. Depending on the wavelength used, IPL can resolve a number of conditions and revitalize your skin with nothing more than light.
