What is a Med Spa?

If you want a relaxing day with cucumber slices over your eyes, you visit a spa. If you want to identify a skin abnormality or concern on your body, you visit a dermatologist's office.

The belly button is saved by cutting around it. The muscles are tightened and the skin and fat flap is brought down and trimmed off.

Don’t let treatments scare you!

One of the biggest obstacles to getting cosmetic treatments is fear. Fear is a natural reaction to the unknown. However, a lot of fear is based on misinformation and the wrong assumptions. Almost every patient coming to see me for an anti-wrinkle procedure will request that it looks very natural and not ‘frozen”. I want to try a cosmetic treatment, but I’m nervous. Is this normal? Yes! We find that many people are nervous the first time they come in. Usually, they’re worried about the treatment outcome, afraid that they won’t look like themselves or that they will look “done” or “overdone” and others will know that they did something. They are afraid of looking fake or looking like some of the people they see on TV, in the movies, or in magazines.

Smart Anti-aging Skin Care

Skin is the largest organ of our body and protects us from the environment, but as it does this, over time it can take a real beating!

Hyperpigmentation aka dark spots, is one of the most common skin concerns that brings patients to RenewMD. Hyperpigmentation means having too much pigment/color in the skin.

Treating hyperpigmentation on my own skin was a challenge and once I found my routine – it was rewarding!
