In the comfort of the medical spa, Dr Mark offers complimentary skin analysis using the Visia® Complexion Analysis System. During the consultation process with the surgeon, or one of our highly trained therapists or nurses, specific non-surgical treatments and cosmeceuticals will be prescribed. These are used alone or in conjunction with surgery. As a fully trained and qualified plastic surgeon, Dr. Mark will identify the best combination of treatments for you.
Botulinum Toxin Injections
Botox® and Dysport® injections are used to improve fine lines and wrinkles of the forehead and face. Dr. Mark uses injectables conservatively to restore the face naturally, symmetrically and harmoniously. Sometimes referred to as a “chemical brow-lift”, it can make remarkable differences to frown lines, crow’s feet and the appearance and position of the brow. As a plastic surgeon, Dr. Mark will determine if Botox® is the best procedure for you as sometimes surgical options such as a blepharoplasty can achieve much more desirable effects; and often more affordable, in the long term. Other options such as chemical peels or Fraxel laser rejuvenation can sometimes achieve much better results in the appropriate patient. It is very important to ensure the correct diagnosis is made before rushing into botox treatments.
Botulinum Toxin Injections are very effective for excessive sweating under the arms, hands, head and feet and are much safer than traditional surgical methods for reducing sweating.
Hyaluronic Acid Based Fillers
Restylane®, Juvederm® and Teosyl® are essentially injectable collagens that are used to enhance or restore specific facial features such as the lips, tear troughs, cheeks and naso-labial folds. Dr. Mark uses fillers to enhance or restore certain features of the face naturally and avoids an "over-done" look.
A Chemical Peel is a chemical solution that can be applied to the skin of the face, neck, décolletage, and hands. It is useful in skin rejuvenation, anti-aging, pigmentation problems, acne and scarring. Chemical peels stimulate collagen production and exfoliate the surface of the skin. This helps to reduce the signs of sun damage, improve the appearance of skin discoloration, improve pore size and texture, and smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. Peels vary in potency and are recommended to the patient depending on the skin concern and age of the patient.
Fraxel Laser is recognized around the world as one of the best and safest lasers for skin rejuvenation. Our Dual Fraxel laser utilizes the most significant technological advancements in laser development. It contains two different laser wavelengths and can therefore be used on a variety of different skin conditions. It significantly stimulates collagen production in the deeper layers of the skin, as such, it is a powerful anti-aging tool. It dramatically reduces pigmentation and is therefore recommended for Melasma. It is also useful on stretch marks, acne and scarring. It is completely safe on all skin types.
Microdermabrasion is a skin resurfacing treatment that helps to remove dead skin cells off the surface of the skin. It helps to prepare and/or complement the skin during more invasive procedures such as Chemical Peels and Fraxel Laser. It helps to improve the appearance of fine lines and superficial acne scars.
During this process, multiple microscopic needles penetrate the dermis of the skin that helps stimulate collagen production. This also allows for the improved penetration of powerful cosmeceutical serums such as hyaluronic acid and anti-oxidants into the skin. It helps to minimize the appearance of wrinkles, scars, stretch marks and improve pore size and acne.

We use a Candela GentleMax Pro Laser for all our laser hair removals. This laser contains both alexandrite and Nd:Yag laser wavelengths, as such, it is suitable and safe to use on all skin types.
