Hottest Skin Rejuvenation Treatments in 2012

Fraxel Dual

The winter is a great time to address the damage that we have incurred during summer months. The Fraxel Dual is a new non-ablative technology that uses two different wave lengths (1550/1927) to address the pigmentary changes caused by sun exposure. It is also helpful for mild to moderate wrinkles, acne scars, melasma and actinic keratosis. The 1550 aspect of the fraxel treats the deeper pigmentary and surface changes, while the 1927 addresses the more superficial pigmentation. Its technology is very safe, with predictable results. This allows patients to have a great result with minimal downtime and disruption to their daily routine. Patients require one to two treatments for optimal results.


ePrimeTM is the first minimally invasive aesthetic treatment to improve facial skin laxity and volumize the skin at the same time. The ePrimeTM treatment improves the thickness, firmness and elasticity of the skin with only one treatment.

The device has been shown to give about one-third the effect of a face lift. In case you didn’t see it, we were featured in an article in the Michigan Avenue Magazine November 2011 Issue for being one of only 10 centers chosen in the US to pioneer the device.

We are pleased to be able to present this new treatment to you. Don’t hesitate to ask questions about it, look it up on our website and make a consultation to discuss it.


Two of the most common cosmetic concerns addressed in the dermatology clinic are the increase in skin laxity and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles due to the passage of time. Unfortunately, through the natural aging process, skin undergoes a gradual loss of collagen. Meanwhile gravity and environmental factors also take their toll on the skin. For those wishing to turn back the clock a few years Thermage® offers an exciting opportunity. By harmlessly and noninvasively heating the deeper layers of skin, Thermage® is able to tighten existing collagen and at the same time stimulate new collagen production. This results in smoother, tighter skin, and a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. A more youthful appearance can be achieved without surgery or injections.

Thermage® may be used in conjunction with other anti-aging treatments or in addition to topical products that also reduce skin damage and promote collagen production. The face, neck, torso, arms and legs may all be treated via Thermage®. Results occur after only one treatment and are long lasting. Thermage® offers a safe and totally noninvasive skin tightening option with no down-time. If you feel Thermage® may be right for you, please schedule a cosmetic consultation to learn more.


Radiofrequency (RF) treatments have been used in cosmetic dermatology for many years. Over the past decade, RF has become the gold standard for non-invasive tissue tightening and wrinkle reduction. Advanced Dermatology  is now offering the latest technology available for painless RF treatment without downtime. The Apollo system by Pollogen employs breakthrough proprietary TriPollar RF technology to produce clinically significant, immediate and long-term body contouring effects. You can expect fat reduction, smaller body circumference, and an improvement in cellulite.

The Apollo system is able to achieve results by deeply heating tissue using RF energy without damaging the skin or other sensitive structures. The treatment applicator has both three- and six-electrode tips in varying sizes to accommodate different body areas. Using focused RF energy, the Apollo uniformly heats the dermis (mid-layer of skin) and the fat beneath the skin to a depth of up to 20mm below the skin’s surface. During treatment, the Apollo with TriPollar RF increases local fat metabolism in the treated areas. Moreover, it is relaxing and painless, feeling similar to a warm massage.

If you would like to inquire about painless, quick, and efficient tissue tightening and body contouring without associated downtime, please call for an appointment with our cosmetic coordinator and one of our providers to learn more. With the help of our latest technological advances, you can look your best in time for the summer season.
