Skin Care Consultations

The first step of Dr. Richard Sherman’s face building philosophy is to properly assess the needs of the patient’s skin. One-on-one skin care consultations give Dr. Sherman and his staff of Skin Savvy aestheticians an opportunity to examine your skin type, discuss any skin concerns, and design a customized skin care regimen. Each personalized skin care program is tailored to rejuvenate, nourish, and protect. Skin care programs can also be designed for men to account for the unique differences in their facial skin. In addition to hand-selecting a combination of skin care products, Dr. Sherman and his aestheticians can recommend supplemental treatments (including microdermabrasion, dermaplaning, facials, peels, laser treatments, or cosmetic treatments) to further enhance your complexion. As your skin continues to improve over time, additional skin care consultations can be scheduled to update your personal program.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels utilize ingredients such as lactic acid, salicylic acid, retinol, and hydroquinone to revitalize the skin. Results can include improved skin texture, minimized pores, a more even skin tone, and the reduced appearance of facial aging. Chemical peels can also be used to correct discoloration due to sun damage or post inflammatory acne.

Facials

To best meet your individual needs, our aestheticians first perform a skin analysis and thoroughly discuss your cosmetic goals before designing a customized facial treatment plan. By combining powerful high-quality cosmeceuticals, each facial can deliver gentle yet effective skin rejuvenation. Facials can be designed to hydrate, brighten, purify, or firm the skin. Many patients choose to combine microdermabrasion with a facial to maximize the results.

Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is a non-chemical exfoliation procedure that removes the outermost layer of dry, dead skin cells and encourages cell turnover. Patients can immediately notice a reduction of fine lines and wrinkles. This non-invasive procedure can also diminish the appearance of light scars, sun damage, hyperpigmentation, age spots, and acne. Dr. Sherman and his aestheticians frequently recommend microdermabrasion procedures be performed in a series to maximize the results. After treatment, topical skin care products and medications can work more effectively and efficiently.

Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning uses a special tool to exfoliate the skin, removing both dead skin cells and vellus hair (commonly referred to as peach fuzz). After treatment, patients can enjoy a smoother complexion and maximize the effectiveness of topical skin care products. Our experienced aestheticians finish each dermaplaning treatment with an Oxygenating Peel to further rejuvenate the skin’s appearance.
