Acne & Acne Scarring
When oil glands become inflamed and irritated, they lead to acne. Acne affects many people during the course of their life and people can suffer with acne well into adulthood. If not treated properly, acne can leave unsightly acne scars. Acne is caused by a variety of factors, which means there are several effective treatment options available.

As we age, our skin ages with us. Factors such as environmental damage, decreased collagen, and more make our skin appear rougher, droopier, more wrinkled, and less evenly pigmented. Skin rejuvenation treatments turn the clock back so you can look younger for longer.

There are two main types of birthmarks: vascular and pigmented. Vascular birthmarks are typically red in color and are the result of blood vessels that formed incorrectly. Pigmented birthmarks are caused by a highly concentrated area of melanin in the skin. While some birthmarks are small or inconspicuous, others are very noticeable and embarrassing which may be cause for removal.

Broken capillaries, or spider veins, are typically thin, small veins that appear close to the surface of the skin and have a red or blue appearance. They are primarily found on the face and legs and show more prominently with age. Innovative vein removal treatments have made it possible to eradicate the appearance of unwanted spider veins.

Chemical peels remove layers of aged or damaged skin to reveal a brighter, fresher, healthier complexion underneath. Peel away sun damage, fine lines, age spots, acne scars, and more with this intensive exfoliation treatment.

Often, the best treatment approach is not just a single treatment, but a combination of treatments tailored specifically to your skin. Dr. Isaac will recommend a custom protocol to address your unique concerns, which may include multiple procedures or products hand selected for you.

Give your skin exactly what it is craving with a facial treatment. Choose from a full menu of facials, each designed to treat concerns such as acne, dryness, dullness, congestion, and inflammation.

Fine Lines & Wrinkles
Unfortunately, fine lines and wrinkles are a very visible part of the skin’s natural aging process. As our skin loses volume and elasticity, fine lines and wrinkles become more apparent. Thankfully, there are numerous wrinkle treatment options available to fit your individual needs at MI Skin Dermatology Center.

KeraLase™ Hair Restoration
Hair thinning and hair loss affect both men and women, often as a result of hormonal changes, stress, or aging. This treatment uses laser technology, proteins, and growth factors to stimulate new hair growth and improve your scalp’s health.

Lip Line Treatment
Lip lines are small, fine lines that appear around the upper lip area. They can become more prominent with age, sun damage, and actions such as smoking or frowning. Lip lines can be treated with microneedling, devices such as lasers, Botox, and fillers depending on their severity.

Microdermabrasion DermaSweep Infusion
This treatment uses a bristle and vacuum system to sweep and suction away dead or damaged skin cells. This gentle treatment effectively treats age spots, sun spots, acne scarring, pigmentation issues, and more. Include a custom serum infusion to take your results to the next level.

Also known as collagen induction therapy (CIT), microneedling creates tine injuries in the surface of your skin to stimulate your body’s natural healing process. This leads to increased collagen production and a smoother, firmer complexion. The addition of radiofrequency energy further enhances the treatment’s skin-tightening effects.

Stretch marks are a common concern among pregnant women or people with excess weight. Stretch marks often appear on areas of the body as such as the abdomen, buttocks, arms, and breasts. While they are not a health risk, many people do not find them attractive and seek treatments to help diminish their appearance.

Stubborn Fat & Cellulite
Stubborn fat and cellulite affect many people, causing them to be dissatisfied with their bodies. As we age, fat bulges and cellulite can become harder to correct even with diet and exercise. Dr. Isaac is an expert at several non-surgical treatment options for the reduction of stubborn fat and cellulite.

Prolonged sun exposure can wreak havoc on our skin over time. Many people find themselves with unpleasant sun spots on their skin that are difficult to cover from view. With the right laser technology, sun spots can be drastically diminished.

Unwanted Hair Removal
Undesired hair can appear anywhere on the body and can be difficult to manage. Both men and women can become self-conscious from an overly hairy appearance. With laser hair removal, Dr. Isaac can safely provide patients with smooth, hair-free skin on ALL skin types.

As we age, our bodies produce less of the natural substances that keeps our skin plump and soft. As a result, volume loss in areas of the body such as the lips, cheeks, temples, and hands can contribute to an aged appearance. Filler treatments are designed to replace lost volume and restore a more youthful appearance.
