Skin Treatments Q & A

What are skin treatments?

Skin treatments include a wide range of medical, surgical, and laser procedures aimed at improving the health and appearance of your skin. Polley Clinic of Dermatology offers many skin treatments, including:

Laser treatments

Polley Clinic uses the Aerolase® laser.

This advanced laser uses extremely short pulses of light that target the second layer of your skin to address the skin problem without causing any damage to the surface. 

Laser treatments address medical and cosmetic skin concerns and require no anesthetic or downtime.  Results are often visible after a single treatment. 

Skin rejuvenation

To restore a more youthful look, Polley Clinic offers skin rejuvenation with the Aerolase laser, which activates the skin’s rejuvenation process to tighten the skin and improve tone, texture, and color.

The laser also stimulates the production of collagen, which is the protein responsible for keeping your skin strong and resilient.

Image-guided superficial radiation therapy

This is a non-surgical treatment for non-melanoma cancers and keloids. Regarding nonmelanoma skin cancer, this innovative treatment uses ultrasound to determine the extent of your tumor.  A precisely calculated, multiple dose routine of superficial radiation is 99.6% effective in curing your cancer.

This noninvasive treatment is quick, painless, requires no downtime, and causes nearly no scarring.

Botox®

Botox is an injection that temporarily diminishes the appearance of facial wrinkles around the eyes and on the forehead for cosmetic purposes. Injections only take a few minutes and require no downtime.

Dermal fillers 

Dermal fillers are injections that add volume under your skin to smooth out lines and creases, enhance features, and add volume to thin lips for cost purposes.
