Are you troubled by acne? You’re not alone, as acne affects almost everyone — more than 90% of all adolescents, nearly 50% of all adult women and 25% of all adults. The good news is now there is help for acne and acne scars. We always begin with a personal skin consultation, as this is the most important step to correction. During the skin consultation your skin will be evaluated for treatments that would be most beneficial for you. Skin care products are suggested for your home care routine.
You may want to start with a deep-cleansing and relaxing Facial. Peels and Microdermabrasion are great ways to exfoliate the skin, allowing new fresh skin to generate. Laser therapy is usually an effective way to clear acne-troubled skin. We also offer the Profractional laser to help minimize acne scarring.
Just because you are getting older certainly doesn’t mean you have to look older. Are you ready to turn back time?
Body Composition Analysis
Along with your medical history, Body Composition Analysis is essential for risk assessment, illness prevention and education about the importance of achieving and maintaining life-long good health. Fresh Vitality uses an FDA cleared method of analyzing your Body Composition. We use this information in conjunction with your medical history to help prevent illness and educate patients about the importance of maintaining healthy body compositions for life-long good health. In addition, we utilize the Body Composition Analysis with our athletic patients to maintain their target composition.
We utilize the latest techniques & treatment options with Botox® Cosmetic, which is a purified protein, extracted from naturally occurring bacteria. It is very similar to how penicillin comes from mold. Dynamic lines and wrinkles occur over time as the delicate muscles underlying the aging skin of our faces contract, such as when we smile, laugh or frown. Very small doses of Botox® Cosmetic are administered via a few tiny injections very precisely into the muscles that cause those stubborn lines and wrinkles, rewarding you with smoother looking skin. The treatment usually takes no more than 10 minutes, and no recovery time is needed.
Peels improve the texture of the skin and increase cell turnover rate, hydration, and moisture retention, as well as elastin and collagen production. As a result, peels can reduce fine lines, wrinkles and hyperpigmentation. They can also be used to treat skin conditions such as acne, clogged pores, and dry skin. We offer a menu of peels for all skin conditions. Glycolic Peels, Enzyme Peels, Jessner Peels, Blue Peels … start to transform your skin with a chemical peel!
Enhance your natural beauty and revive your youthful appearance. As we age, our skin changes. Over time, the natural volume of youthful skin begins to diminish as wrinkles and folds form. Dermal fillers like Juvéderm and RADIESSE, gently injected into the skin in small amounts with a very fine needle, smooth away facial wrinkles and folds. Anesthesia is not required with this quick and easy procedure, and downtime is virtually non-existent, allowing you to go about your day.
Fresh Vitality offers facial services for all skin types and conditions. Choices include an Express Facial, European Facial, Clarifying Facial, Triple Anti-Aging Facial and more. You can even opt for a Back Facial, or a Detoxifying Herbal Body Wrap. Facials cleanse, exfoliate, feed and pamper your skin!
At Fresh Vitality Medical Spa, we use the Sciton BroadBand Light Laser for our hair removal procedures, in addition to waxing and electrolysis. The laser can target both finer and coarser hair, as well as lighter hair, on ALL skin types. Facial and body hair is minimized through a series of treatments. Imagine throwing away your razor for good!
With age, many hormones decline significantly, causing those changes we associate with aging. Having diminished hormone levels contributes to a series of symptoms and a slow, steady deterioration in our health. Optimized hormone levels create balance within the body, leading to a healthier, happier you! Hormone Therapy is the science of giving back the hormones your body loses with age. Learn how natural, bio-identical hormones put passion back in your life!
Patients on our program keep in contact with Dr. Ariss on a routine basis through office visits, e-mail or phone follow-up calls to discuss your progress. He makes adjustments as needed on your health plan monthly until your hormones are optimized, but more importantly until you feel like YOU again!
Years of sun exposure and the aging process take their toll on the skin, creating lines, wrinkles, and changes in texture and color. Microdermabrasion can help to rejuvenate the overall health and appearance of your skin! Skin resurfacing with microdermabrasion is a treatment that improves wrinkles, skin texture and color by removing the topmost layer of skin, leaving it more supple and vibrant. Skin resurfacing also stimulates the elastic tissue beneath the surface of the skin resulting in a healthier and firmer appearance. Our microdermabrasion treatments are administered by our trained Medical Aestheticians. The length of the treatment and number of treatments vary depending on skin type and condition. Most people experience softer, smoother skin after their very first treatment.
Skin Care Products
We offer Physician-Grade Skin Care Products such as Obagi Systems and Eminence Organic Skin Care. Our medical estheticians will evaluate your skin type and help you determine a regular skin care routine for home use.
Designed with your comfort in mind, we employ modern techniques using the latest developments of Sclerotherapy. Sclerotherapy is a medical procedure used to treat varicose veins and “spider veins.” During sclerotherapy, the physician injects a solution directly into the affected vein, which then fades from view over time. Sclerotherapy is a well-proven procedure and has been used since the 1930s.
Medical Weight Loss
Our state-of-the-art medical center practices safe, effective, evidence-based medicine to help you slow, stop and even reverse many negative effects of the aging process, including Weight Management. Obesity is a costly condition that can reduce quality of life and increases the risk for many serious chronic diseases and premature death. Fresh Vitality provides a comfortable, safe, and pleasurable environment for patients seeking to attain true health from the inside out.
Your program involves a combination of nutrition education, fitness education, and appetite suppressants in a physician-supervised program that is individually customized for each client’s needs and goals. Our program is designed to help you reach your goal weight at your pace and is nutritionally designed to develop proper eating habits for long term success.
