Medical Skin Care
Danik MedSpa offers dermatology-grade skin care treatments that will help you rejuvenate and look younger. Our skin care specialists can create a customized series of facial treatments based on your skin type, age, ethnicity, lifestyle, and other concerns.
At-home skin care products are the perfect combination to maintain a healthy and younger skin between office visits. Danik carries a full line of skin care products that have been clinically proven to improve the production of collagen along with rebuilding and reducing the visible signs of aging. Medical skin care products contain a great concentration of active ingredients such as human dermal fibroblast, a naturally secreted and balanced combination of growth hormones. The molecules of these hormones strengthen the skinís natural ability to repair itself.
Our facial treatment with manual extraction is the most effective for eliminating any congestion of blocked pores and unwanted black/whiteheads. Removal of toxins through manual extraction eradicates dirt, dead cells and backed up oil that causes acne. The elimination of clogged pores allows oxygen too flow freely through the skin, giving the appearance of invisible pores. The extractions also improve the smoothness of the superficial layer of the skin by getting rid of the trapped dirt from the underlying layer. Read moreÖ
Dry skin is a very common skin problem that often worsens during winter when the environmental humidity is low. It can occur at all ages and in people with other skin problems. Individuals with dry skin have low levels of oil production, making the skin feel dehydrated and tight. If you have this condition, we have the right skin treatment and medical-grade products to rehydrate and renew your skin. Read moreÖ
Medical Skin Care for Dark Skin
As darker skin is prone to developing dark spots and pseudo-folliculitis (in-grown hairs), we have a variety of treatments for darker skin complexions 5 and 6. At Danik MedSpa, we make sure to personalize each patientís needs, using medical-grade products in each signature facial to ensure the best results possible while avoiding damaging the skin.
In-grown hair can be treated in two different ways - by laser hair removal or microdermabrasion. Laser hair removal requires 6 to 8 treatments, with results sometimes noticeable after the first treatment. Microdermabrasion is appropriate for milder conditions of in-grown hair, requiring 4 to 8 treatments to achieve results. By removing layers of the skin, the hair can come out, leaving the appearance of smoother skin and reducing the problem. Maintenance is required every few months to eliminate the condition.
Microdermabrasion is used to refresh the skin and to repair imperfections caused by the sun or premature aging. By using tiny crystals, with gentle abrasion and suction across the selected treatment area, the dead skin cells are removed and a new outer layer of skin is visible. This technique is also excellent for hyper-pigmentation, the reduction of fine wrinkles and an overall freshness of the skin.
Crystal Microdermabrasion involves the use of a hand-held device that releases a high-speed flow of aluminum oxide crystals onto the skin. The machine's vacuum system simultaneously sucks away dirt, dead cells and used crystals. The aluminum oxide used causes no allergic or adverse reactions and is not toxic if ingested.
Sodium bicarbonate crystals, an organic alternative to aluminum oxide crystals, is a softer Microdermabrasion Treatment that is more gentle on the skin. The sodium bicarbonate is used on patients with hyperpigmentation and can be easily washed off after treatment (water-soluble).
Diamond Microdermabrasion (Crystal-Free) relies on the suction in combination with the diamond tip to exfoliate the skin. It comes in various sizes and coarseness of tipped wands for different skin types and depths of resurfacing. The wand tips are composed of thousands of tiny natural diamond particles that polish the skin and remove any dead cells by vacuuming them into a waste filter.
Crystal-free tips and natural diamond tips are easier to use in areas closer to the eyes and mouth. By using diamond abrasion, these areas can be abraded more accurately and without the risk of damage or ingestion.
Do you have sun-damage? Acne scars? Do you want to brighten or even out your skin texture?
Danik chemical peels can improve mild to severe cases of acne, eliminate sun-damage, brown spots, fine wrinkles, and correct uneven skin tone producing immediate results with little to no recovery time. The chemical peel uses an ingredient known as salicylic acid that chemically sloughs off the damaged superficial layer of the epidermis while killing the bacteria thatís causing inflamed, irritated skin. We offer three different strengthens of peels - 20, 30 or 40% - from which our skilled medical specialist will create the best medical-grade concentration peel for you.
TCA Peel is a medium-strength peel that works with a variety of acidic agents to achieve the strength needed. Within a few days, the superficial layer will darken and begin to flake off. The complete process takes about four to seven days. Once the old skin has sloughed off, the new skin will appear bright and flushed. At this point you may begin to apply makeup and products to hydrate your skin.
Vitalize Peel is a milder peel that targets sun damage, expression lines, deep wrinkles, or post-scaring. With the exception of sun exposure, normal activity can be resumed right after the treatment. Light peeling may occur for about three days post treatment; however, this may vary from person to person.
Rejuvenate Peel helps with sun damage and all other conditions. This peel is a stronger treatment than our Vitalize Peel, so you will need fewer procedures, usually between 2 and 3, as opposed to 6 to 8 treatments with the Vitalize Peels. Recovery time is needed for this treatment.
AHA (Alphahydrocyacid) Peel is the lightest peel suitable for patients that need the least recovery time. It quickly removes any dead skin that causes dullness from the superficial layer and addresses other concerns on the face without intense peeling. For these reasons, the AHA is the way to go.
VI Peel as very strong medical-grade chemical peel, the VI Peel is an effective treatment to improve several severe skin conditions. These include acne, uneven skin texture, fine lines, acne scars, sagging skin, age and sun spots, enlarged pores and hyperpigmentation. The VI Peel also provides a more youthful look by improving collagen production and brightening the overall appearance of the skin.
Laser Acne Treatment
The most effective and popular acne treatment being used is the IPL Laser Acne treatment. This procedure includes a method that kills the P. acne bacterium along with controlling the overproduction of sebaceous glands that causes a backup in the pores and leads to irritated, inflamed pustules. A total of 6 IPL treatments are required, with each laser acne treatment lasting only 30 minutes. To see more rapid results, a simple glycolic peel between IPL sessions is recommended. There is no downtime with this treatment; however, sun protection is highly recommended, as some patients may experience sensitization of the skin.
