Skin Care Procedures
SciTon Laser Treatments
The most effective protocol for reducing unwanted sun damage, pigmentation, facial redness, blood vessels and/or acne. Corrective BBL treatments are performed every 3-4 weeks in a series of 3-4 treatments until desired results are achieved. BBL also induces collagen stimulation and improvement in pore and textural appearance.
Forever Young BBL
Once corrective BBL series is complete, patients can maintain their results and help delay the aging process by quarterly or "seasonal" BBL treatments using the "Forever Young" protocol which was proven in a Stanford study to increase collagen and elastin in order to keep skin healthy and in a youthful state.
For enhanced results of BBL, dermaplane is performed prior to treatment in order to remove dead skin cell build up and fine facial hair so BBL works optimally. Following BBL, a Skin Medica Illuminize peel is performed to brighten the skin and make you glow.
Halo is the world’s first hybrid laser, meaning it combines two laser wavelengths in one for superior results with minimal downtime. Halo combines deep dermal rejuvenation with epidermal renewal for a combined synergistic effect rarely found with other treatments. It is perfect for the patient who wants to address sun damage, unwanted pigmentation, fine lines, pore size and uneven texture.
ProFractional Therapy treats a fraction of the skin to stimulate new collagen growth, improve the skin tone, and treat deeper textural irregularities such as fine lines, deeper wrinkles, and scars. This treatment is relatively quick and can be customized based on the patient’s individual concerns and desired results. The downtime is minimal to moderate, and results are significant.
Contour TRL & MicroLaser Peel
Contour TRL is a highly effective treatment option for patients looking for deep laser resurfacing to address deep wrinkles, scars, pores and uneven texture. Its effects are similar to CO2 resurfacing with similar downtime.
Treatments: Starting at $1,500
A MicroLaserPeel treatment removes a very thin layer of skin to improve the appearance of fine lines, pigmentation, tone and texture. This treatment, nicknamed the “weekend peel”, has minimal downtime and is a great option for patients who want gentle resurfacing for minor skin imperfections.
Treatments: Starting at $250-$700 per full face treatment or Package of Three
SkinPen Micro Needling
The Skin Pen micro needling treatment helps treat uneven texture, fine lines, large pores, scarring, and stretch marks. It also helps to stimulate collagen which makes the skin look more youthful and function more healthily.
The Skin Pen works by utilizing micro-needling technology to stimulate the skin’s natural ability to repair itself. It comfortably creates thousands of micro-injuries in the skin to trigger the body’s natural wound healing process, resulting in skin remodeling, including the formation of new collagen and elastin.
This treatment has very little downtime with minimal redness immediately after the treatment that can persist at most for a few days after. Makeup can be applied 24 hours after the procedure to help conceal any residual reaction.
The treatment is not uncomfortable or painful as topical numbing gel is applied prior to the treatment and left on in order to allow penetration.
Treatments may be performed every four weeks or as recommended by your provider. A series of treatments is always most effective to address most skincare needs, but every treatment will help improve the overall health of the skin. Some conditions such as acne scars and surgical scars may require several treatments and your provider will make a recommendation of the number of treatments needed based to achieve desired results.

IPL - Intense Pulse Light
“IPL” is a treatment that uses light based photo rejuvenation technology to effectively fade unwanted sun spots, hyper pigmentation and blood vessels. Gentle pulsed light is also able to stimulate the production of collagen for anti-aging.
This treatment has very little downtime. Right after treatment with IPL, any dark spots will appear slightly darker and the treated area may have mild redness similar to a mild sunburn. After a few days, dark spots will resemble “coffee grounds” until they eventually flake off. This process can take about a week for the face and slightly longer for areas on the body.
Blood vessels and broken capillaries can fade, change color, or appear darker immediately after an IPL treatment, but over time will fade and become much less visibly apparent.
Patients prefer IPL for overall rejuvenation of the skin to other laser treatments as it has very little downtime and is quite effective. We recommend patients complete treatments every four weeks until the desired result is achieved. Some skin conditions may require more treatments in order to obtain maximum results.
IPL is a wonderful treatment option for unwanted pigmentation, sun spots and “age” spots, broken capillaries, unsightly blood vessels, rosacea and scarring. We recommend that patients have a thorough consultation and skin analysis with our medical aesthetician to discuss treatment information prior to treatment with IPL.
Ultherapy uses micro-focused ultrasound waves to stimulate collagen production in the deep layers of the skin. This treatment targets the same layers that are reached through face lift surgery to lift and tighten the skin non-invasively. It is the only FDA-cleared procedure indicated to lift and tighten the skin of the neck, chin, and brow, and improve lines and wrinkles on the chest.
This treatment has little to no downtime as it works on the deep layers of the skin and bypasses the epidermis, or outermost layer of the skin. Patients often notice their skin looks tighter and their texture has improved immediately after treatment with Ultherapy as they see a “preview” of what the final result will look like. It takes up to 3-6 months after the treatment to see full results.
Ultherapy is so powerful that one treatment is normally enough to yield visible lifting, tightening, and overall textural improvement. The results typically last several years but maintenance “mini treatments” may be performed intermittently to help prolong results.
Ultherapy can be used to effectively address loose or sagging skin, volume loss, uneven or rough skin texture, fine lines and improves the appearance of scarring. It is the most powerful non-invasive lifting technology available on the market today. It is perfect for the patient who is not ready for surgery, but can also help patients who have previously had surgery maintain their results
Facial treatments at JC Plastic Surgery are “medical grade” using the highest quality professional skincare products. The treatments are performed by our medical aesthetician and can address a multitude of skin types and concerns, such as dehydration, sun damage, aging skin, acne and congestion, rosacea and sensitive skin.

This powerful anti-aging facial is for the patient who wants to be uplifted!
JC Signature Facial
This sixty-minute facial is customized to address the individual skincare needs and concerns of the patient. The skin will be carefully analyzed and professional grade products will then be used to thoroughly deep cleanse, tone and exfoliate the skin. Extractions are performed to help unclog pores and relieve congestion.
A special glycolic solution may then be used to help create glowing, healthy skin. Next a targeted mask will be applied to the skin, followed by an application of powerful serums and finishing products to conclude this rejuvenating facial treatment.

Just one peel yields significant results, but even more compelling results are noticed after a series of 3-6 peels. Following a Rejuvenize Peel, patients notice their skin appears brighter, smoother, more even, and healthier. Fine lines, enlarged pores, sun spots and acne are diminished. This peel is perfect for the patient who wants a dramatic treatment to improve the overall appearance of their skin.
Derma plane or “derma blading” is a technique that utilizes a sterile surgical blade to remove unwanted dead skin buildup and fine facial hair to even out and soften the skin texture. The treatment is very comfortable and includes careful skin analysis, thorough cleansing, toning, a targeted mask, and application of potent serums and finishing products.
After a derma plane treatment, patients say that their skin feels “baby smooth”- makeup sits better on the skin and the face will be free of fine facial hair and dead skin cell buildup. Skin care products will also be able to penetrate more deeply and work better after this procedure.
