Refresh Your Skin!    

Are you looking into the mirror and seeing someone older than you feel? With today's newest technologies in skin care, you can look as young as you feel.

At Lupton Dermatology and Skin Care Center, our treatments are designed for people with active and busy lifestyles. They offer great results with faster healing and less recovery time. Our treatments are affordable, noninvasive, with no or minimal down time.

Skin Pen

Lupton Derm is proud to announce that we now offer the SkinPen® , a microneedling process that improves your skin with little downtime. SkinPen® procedures are beneficial to assist in reducing the signs of aging, improving the appearance of acne scars, as well as rejuvenate aging skin.  

Microneedling allows for controlled induction of the skin’s self-repair process by creating precise, micro injuries in the skin. The procedure typically takes 45 minutes. One of the most exciting things about SkinPen® is that it can be used on all types of skin, on all skin colors. The total healing time depends on each individual patient. Most patients have some slight swelling and redness/pinkness (like a mild sunburn) for 2-4 days. Some patients may heal completely in 24 hours. Patients may notice healthier looking skin immediately. However, the natural repair process of your own skin continues to progress over the course of several weeks. Damage that has occurred over an extensive period of time won’t disappear immediately. You may not see the final result for up to 3-6 months following your final session. Most patients receive a series of 3 procedures spaced about 4 weeks apart. A procedure plan specific to you and also a maintenance plan will be decided by our aesthetician to help maintain the rejuvenating effects.  

Introducing IPL and Laser Treatment

Benefits of IPL and Laser include:

  • Safe and reliable - The optimal use of light and heat energy for treating your sensitive facial areas, neck and hands provides safe treatment with little or no pain or downtime.
  • Visible - You will notice results shortly after starting treatment, with visible improvement, including enhancement in skin texture after just a few treatments.
  • No Downtime - Because of the non-ablative nature of the treatment, you are able to resume your normal activities immediately after the treatment. There is usually only a brief recovery period.
  • Quick Treatment Time - Many of the treatments take just minutes from start to finish. Even large body areas can be treated quickly and efficiently. Frequently there is little to no preparation by you prior to your visit.
  • Affordable - When considering treatment options, this innovative alternative is affordable due its efficiency and cost effectiveness especially when you consider the quick improvement you notice and the little or no downtime you experience after the procedure.


IPL Photo Rejuvenation (PhotoFacials)

Over time, our skin suffers from influences of the environment, genetics and sun exposure. Now with the new IPL photo rejuvenation technology, you can have youthful and more radiant skin.
A typical treatment takes 10 minutes with no patient preparation. Usually there is little to no discomfort or downtime. IPL for pigmented and vascular lesions therapy is safe and efficient.

IPL Hair Reduction

People with unwanted or excessive hair will find IPL treatment safe, quick and efficient. IPL can be used to remove hair on virtually every part of the body except for eyebrows.

A series of treatments are performed every three weeks for a total of six to eight sessions, resulting in long lasting removal of excess and unwanted hair. Depending on the size of the area being treated, treatment time can take from 10 to 30 minutes each session.

IPL Acne Clearance

Acne is the bane of most teenagers and many adults. Over 80% of the population ages 14-30 will suffer from some form of acne and 20% of all adults suffer from varying degrees of acne.

The unique IPL technology successfully clears inflammatory acne lesions in just one-third of the time it takes for standard topical and oral medications to do the same. Since most acne treatments involve medications that often have side effects, IPL Acne Clearance Treatment offers a quick, efficient treatment plan with no downtime, little to no discomfort and no adverse side effects. Eight 10-minute treatments over a 4-week period can result in dramatically clearer, smoother acne-free skin.

Fractional Resurfacing

Fractional resurfacing is a new innovative way to correct the appearance of aging and sun-damaged skin by reducing wrinkles, smoothing out skin tone and activating the formation of new collagen. The face, neck, chest and hands can all be treated with fractional resurfacing. Our system sends infrared light pulses deep in the dermis, where it creates a carefully controlled area of elevated temperature. These areas of elevated temperature cause soft tissue coagulation, which lead to collagen remodeling in the deep dermis. Remodeled collagen can tighten sagging skin. Deep heating with infrared light can also stimulate increased collagen production, to create long term results. There is little to no downtime with this safe method of treatment for sagging and lax skin.

Microdermabrasion

The lunch time refresher, designed to improve your skin and give it a more youthful glow.

Microdermabrasion is a mini-procedure that involves the skin being buffed by aluminum oxide or similar crystals to remove the top layer of the skin. Microdermabrasion also promotes the production of new cells in the basal deepest layer of the dermis. It can clean your pores incredibly and hinder any future breaks outs if used on a regular basis.

Microdermabrasion also stimulates collagen, networking to further even out skin texture and appearance. The best candidates for microdermabrasion are individuals with acne prone and blotchy skin, small scars, wrinkles, keratoses, large pores, milia, or sebaceous hyperplasia.

If you have sun damage or uneven texture and would like to improve the condition of your skin, you may be a good candidate for this procedure.

Photodynamic Therapy (PDT)

PDT with Levulan (aminolevulineacid) is a ground breaking treatment to remove sundamaged and precancerous spots known as actinic kearotosis. A topical medication, Levulan, is applied to the area to be treated. Then the area is placed under a specialized blue light for several minutes. There is minimal or no pain and no downtime. Patients may experience redness after treatment and should expect peeling for several days after a treatment. For best results, most patients receive three (3) monthly treatments..

Advantages of this exceptional treatment include:               

 
  • Removing precancerous actinic keratosis,                                            
  • Helping to prevent skin cancer,
  • Improving wrinkles, reducing pore size and
  • Improving overall skin texture and pigmentation.
  • Improving moderate to severe cystic acne (see below)

 

Photodynamic Therapy for Acne Treatment

PDT is an innovative treatment for hard to treat moderate to severe cystic acne. This specialized blue light treatment targets the bacteria that causes acne and exfoliates the skin to unclog the pores. It also reduces the subaceauous glands that cause acne. Pretreatment with ALA Levulan (aminolevuline acid) may help with additional reduction of lesions, pustules and papules associated with acne. For best results, patients receive three (3) monthly treatments. There is minimal discomfort during treatment and no downtime. Your face may be red for 24 hours and peeling is common for 2-4 days after

 .Chemical Peels

There are a variety of chemical peels available at Lupton Dermatology and Skin Care Center.

This breakthrough in topical therapy is recommended for people with acne, rosacea, aging, melasma, sun damage, seborrheic dermatitis, psoriasis, eczema and scarring. Exfoliation occurs after treatment. Your skin will look and feel refreshed.

Glycolic Acid Peel

This treatment is designed to visibly reduce the signs of aged and sun damaged skin. The peel exfoliates the dead skin cells, while balancing the skin's sebum and promoting cellular rejuvenation.

Vitalize Peel

The formulation inclues a unique blend of peeling agents: alpha hydroxy acids, beta hydroxy acids, and resorcinol. Retinoic acid (Which may be obtained through a compounding pharmacy) is recommended as a final step.

There is little to no visible peeling while improving the smoothness of skin and texture of your skin while improving the overall condition of your skin.

Rejuvenize Peel

Rejuvenize Peel is a superficial peel that penetrates into the deeper layers of the epidermis and produces the most exfoliation. The formulation includes a unique blend of peeling agents: alpha hydroxy acids, beta hydroxy acids, resorcinol and retinoic acid.

BOTOX® Cosmetic
