The range of medical aesthetic services and products offered at HerMD are designed to enhance your natural beauty and reduce the signs of aging.
Our non to minimally – invasive cosmetic procedures are fast, safe and effective, and they deliver dramatic results. Once we have addressed your concerns, we will determine a treatment plan together to best achieve your desired results.
Years of frowning, concentrating, squinting and more can really affect the appearance of wrinkles, especially those around your eyes (crow’s feet) and brow (frown lines). Botox® Cosmetic is the first and only FDA-cleared prescription product that targets the underlying muscle activity that causes moderate to severe crow’s feet and frown lines in adults. The result of Botox injections is a reduction of activity of those muscles, thereby temporarily reducing the appearance of those unwanted wrinkles.
Over time, the muscles around your eyes and above and between the eyebrows repeatedly contract and tighten, causing wrinkles. But with just a few Botox injections, these neuromodulators block the signal from the nerve to the muscles, ultimately resulting in a reduction of muscle activity and temporarily preventing contraction of the muscles that cause the wrinkles.
JUVÉDERM DERMAL FILLER
Juvéderm® is a gel filler that adds volume to your facial features, most commonly around the nose and mouth, in order to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and folded skin. The result is younger looking, tighter skin.
After determining your individualized needs and Juvéderm treatment plan, we will inject your problem areas with the Juvéderm gel filler. Once the treatment is completed, you are usually free to go about your day as normal.
Not everyone is a candidate for Juvéderm fillers. Be sure to discuss all health-related matters with us prior to your appointment, including all allergies. Following the treatment, you may experience mild redness, pain/tenderness, firmness, swelling, lumps/bumps, bruising, itching or discoloration at the injection sites. These moderate symptoms will usually go away within 1-4 weeks.
RESTYLANE DERMAL FILLER
Restylane is a FDA-approved dermal filler made of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in all living organisms and provides volume and fullness to the skin. What’s more, it’s a non-animal substance and will slowly biodegrade on its own. This means, long term effects for your facial beauty goals.
A meeting with your Aesthetic RN will help you determine what type of filler is best suitable for your skin type and needs. If Restylane is decided upon, you can decide whether Restylane Silk (used for a gentle plumping of the lips), Restylane Lift (used to fill in smile lines and hollow cheeks to provide a more youthful appearance), or both would be the best course of action.
A chemical peel is one of the oldest cosmetic procedures, going back to the days of ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome. Chemical peels are designed to help people achieve smoother, more youthful-looking skin by treating facial blemishes, wrinkles and uneven skin pigmentation.
We personalize our chemical peel treatments to fit your individual skincare needs. A chemical peel involves using acid solution alpha hydroxy acids (AHA) to remove damaged outer layers of the skin. The results are seen almost immediately and can be administered as an outpatient procedure. Chemical peels can help you see a dramatic reduction in the appearance of sun spots and age spots. In addition, chemical peels help improve the appearance of acne, acne scars and irregularities in your skin’s pigmentation.
HydraFacial™: Exfoliate, Hydrate and Invigorate
HydraFacial™ treatments safely and comfortably revitalize the skin without causing irritation, providing immediately noticeable results that can last for weeks! The HydraFacial suite of treatments utilizes vortex technology to deeply exfoliate the skin. Vacuum extraction of the pores gently and effectively removes impurities from the skin, while infusing it with intense hydration from collagen-building hyaluronic acid, antioxidants and anti-aging peptides.
Our range of Deluxe HydraFacials offer additional rejuvenation protocols to improve skin tone and texture, and the Platinum HydraFacial comes with the added detoxification benefits of Lymphatic Therapy.
The primary purpose of a clinical facial is to treat your skin from a medical perspective. Prior to scheduling your personalized clinical facial, we will talk with you to assess your individual skin needs, and then come up with a customized skin treatment plan that is uniquely yours.
First, your skin will be cleansed and treated with the appropriate exfoliation method (enzyme, scrub, microdermabrasion, chemical peel). Next, your skin will be steamed to open the pores to prepare them for extraction. After cleaning out your pores, we will end your clinical facial by gently massaging your face and providing a personalized treatment mask that will hydrate your skin and address your individual skin concerns, according to your plan. Upon leaving your appointment, we will recommend a daily regimen for home skin care. We usually recommend regular clinical facial treatments every 6-8 weeks.
Dermaplaning is a simple and safe procedure of shaving and exfoliating the epidermis and ridding the skin of fine hair (peach fuzz). With this painless procedure you can achieve a fresher, cleaner and brighter glow to your face and help your makeup penetrate the skin more smoothly and flawlessly.
Using a scalpel and a delicate touch, we scrape the surface of the skin using light feathering strokes. While exfoliating the epidermis, dermaplaning also removes fine hair on the skin. This hair often causes a buildup of dirt and oils in the follicles, so removing the hair not only results in smoother skin, but your skin will also be healthier looking with results lasting for 4-6 weeks.
Looking for a solution to facial skin conditions such as wrinkles, broken capillaries, rosacea, sun damage and other age-related factors? Learn how the IPL photorejuvenation procedure drastically reduces flushing, blushing, redness and spots by producing new collagen. A minimally invasive, non-ablative procedure, IPL will leave your skin looking younger and feeling softer.
Our energy-based system delivers a combination of high-intensity pulses of bi-polar radio frequency (RF) and both light and diode laser energies to the deeper parts of the skin (dermis), leaving the superficial aspect of the skin (epidermis) untouched. The thermal effect causes production of new collagen, leading to improvement in fine lines and the gradual, natural restoration of skin by diminishing (or eliminating) age spots on the face, hands and chest. Skin rejuvenation can also be performed on other parts of the body such as the neck and back.
LASER HAIR REMOVAL
Permanently remove facial and/or body hair with a laser hair reduction treatment. Primarily used for face, legs, arms and bikini area, laser hair reduction treatment can help your skin look smoother and more flawless without the hassle of a daily hair removal regimen. As all beauty procedures, results can vary, but most laser hair reduction patients see a permanent hair removal of anywhere between 50-90%.
Our newest state of the art laser hair removal technology, the Motif Vantage works well on all hair on your body, no matter the thickness, the color, the type, the location, or even the skin color – including tanned skin. It’s a painless way to reveal your true beauty and to make grooming and beauty upkeep minimal!
LASER SKIN RESURFACING
CO2RE is the latest in laser skin resurfacing from Candela. It treats wrinkles (deep wrinkles and fine lines) and rejuvenates skin both superficially and deeply. It will help make scars, discoloration, age spots, large pores, sun damage, skin tone/dull skin issues and wrinkles vanish and will even help improve skin laxity.
The CO2RE laser waves create minuscule columns that immediately go into healing and rejuvenation mode, which is how the resurfacing and “clean start” occurs. CO2RE features dual laser waves that can be adjusted to treat skin at both the superficial and deep levels at the same time.
Morpheus8 is a cutting-edge fractional skin treatment which stimulates collagen production of the underlying layers of the skin. The Morpheus8 targets subdermal layers of the skin and tissue to remodel collagen on the face and body.
This procedure is minimally invasive, safe, non-surgical, and is accomplished by using a matrix of micro pins to renew deeper layers of the skin with almost no patient downtime.
RF (radio frequency) energy heats the deep layers of the skin in a controlled manner which revitalizes the collagen. The treatment improves skin complexion and texture for a more radiant and youthful appearance, a natural anti-aging treatment.
Morpheus8 helps improve the appearance of:
- Excess fat in the face and neck
- Mild sagging and jowling in the face and neck
- Uneven or rough skin texture
- Acne scarring and other scars on the face or body
- Deep lines and Ceases
- Sun damage
- Enlarged Pores
- Stretch Marks
The Morpheus8 procedure can take up to an hour to perform.
REVEAL SKIN ANALYSIS
During your aesthetic consultation, we may use the Reveal Skin Analysis system to determine the state of your skin. Reveal is a powerful visual tool that can help show where your problem areas are by taking two photos of your face—one to show you how you look in normal daylight, and one to show you what lurks beneath the surface of the skin.
This excellent tool can help facilitate a meaningful, honest discussion regarding your personalized skin treatment plan, and can also give you product recommendations in order to treat your problem areas. During the course of your skin treatment plan, Reveal can also indicate how your skin has improved, and what more needs to be done to attain your aesthetic goals.
SUBLATIVE FACIAL REJUVENATION
Using fractionated bi-polar radio frequency energy, Sublative smooths your skin more effectively than creams and without the downtime associated with surgery. In addition, Sublative improves your skin’s tone and texture, helping you to achieve a more youthful look.
Sublative energy is precisely directed deep into the skin. The healthy tissue around the target area begins a quick healing process, which stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, as well as the development of healthy skin cells. Mild to moderate wrinkles are reduced, and the appearance of textural irregularities are diminished impressively. You see smoother-looking skin with a more elastic texture.
SUBLIME SKIN TIGHTENING AND CONTOURING
Sublime® skin tightening and contouring treatment is a minimally invasive procedure that uses laser-based technology to heat the facial skin without injury. The heat stimulates the skin at the molecular and mechanical levels, which promotes firmness as a natural response to wound healing. The procedure involves a cooling method in order to keep the superficial layer of skin unaffected.
As you age, gravity takes hold of your jawline and causes the skin to sag. Sublime stimulates the production of collagen, creating a smoother line and a younger look. In addition, folds from the nose to the corners of the mouth can be eliminated, and fine lines along the mouth, eyes and cheeks can be smoothed out.
Latisse is an eyelash enhancement for longer, thicker, fuller lashes. Apply (bimatoprost ophthalmic solution) to your lash line nightly and soon you have the long beautiful lashes you’ve always wanted! It’s currently the only FDA-approved treatment for extending your real lashes.
Say goodbye to that double chin with KYBELLA®, an injection medicine made for adults that will permanently, destroy the fat cells under your chin. Made by the makers of BOTOX, Allergan KYBELLA® is the only FDA approved injectable treatment that will improve your facial profile.
First, you will meet with one of our highly qualified medical experts to determine if you are a good candidate for KYBELLA®. Next, we’ll decide on a treatment plan together in order to best meet your aesthetic desires safely and ethically. Then, treatment will be scheduled and administered by a KYBELLA®-trained healthcare specialist. At each treatment, you will receive multiple small injections under your chin. This process takes about 15 to 20 minutes. The exact number of injections will depend on the mutually agreed upon treatment plan.
VELASHAPE III BODY CONTOURING
VelaShape III uses a combination of energies—vacuum, infrared light and bi-polar radio frequency—to deep heat and shrink fat cells and the surrounding tissue. You see results quickly and without the downtime associated with invasive surgery!
A vacuum source elevates the target tissue, bringing it closer to the energy source. Infrared light heats the targeted area. Bi-polar radio frequency energy guides the heat evenly throughout the targeted area, so it heats faster without damaging the skin. VelaShape III also delivers results with minimal discomfort. In fact, many VelaShape III patients compare the treatment to a warm deep-tissue massage.
