Dermaplaning is a simple and safe procedure for exfoliating the dead surface skin cells and riding the skin of fine vellus hair (peach fuzz). Because demaplaning is a quick procedure with few to no adverse effects, it is rapidly gaining popularity among cosmetic medical providers, as well as their patients, across the country. Using a surgical blade and a delicate touch, the surface of the skin is exfoliated using light feathering strokes. The skin is left smooth, vibrant and healthy looking with no downtime.
Microdermabrasion, also known as microderm, is one of the easiest, safest and most effective anti-aging treatments you can get. It is also one of the most popular skin care treatments that we offer at the Aesthetic Center of Gainesville. You can soften fine lines and wrinkles, smooth the texture of your skin, decrease the appearance of shallow scards, decrease pore size, and reduce superficial hyperpigmentation, also known as age or sun spots with a Microdermabrasion treatment. Microdermabrasion also makes it easier for high-tech serums and skin care products to penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin. Best results are seen with at least 6 treatments.
Also known as collagen induction therapy, this amazing treatment has been called a medical breakthrough. It has little to no side effects and very low recovery time. This treatment helps produce natural collagen and elastin which significantly improves fine lines, wrinkles, scarring, helps tighten and thicken skin, fades stretch marks and hyperpigmentation, reduces the appearance of pore size and has even been shown to aid in the prevention of hair loss.
Derived from milk, Lactic acid is a mild peel with little to no downtime. Because lactic acid is a natural metabolite, there is less of a chance of a reaction from this type of peel. Therefore, this is an excellent choice for a first-time peel or someone with mature and/or sensitive skin, or dry/dehydrated skin. This treatment exfoliates, retains moisture and improves the appearance of fine lines.
When it comes to skincare, antioxidants work by speeding up the skin’s natural repair systems and by directly inhibiting further free radical damage.

Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is a medical procedure that uses a laser — an intense, pulsating beam of light — to remove unwanted hair. During laser hair removal, a laser beam passes through the skin to an individual hair follicle. The intense heat of the laser damages the hair follicle, which inhibits future hair growth.
