  • Skin Consultation

    This is a free service, but extremely beneficial. We will sit down with you to discuss the problem areas or just talk about the changes that may be occuring. We will help guide you towards the treatments or products that will be best suited for your skin.

  • PPX Acne Treatments

    Acne is one of the most common skin conditions affecting people of all ages. Most commonly it affects people in their teens, 20s, 30s, 40s and beyond. Untreated acne can cause permanent scarring which is an unwanted permanent reminder of the condition.

    According to the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD), acne is caused by the overproduction of androgens, hormones that stimulate the sebaceous glands causing them to enlarge and increase the production of sebum. This increase in oil production, coupled with dead skin cells, results in blockages in the hair follicle and sebaceous glands.

    The PPx Pore-Cleansing ACNE Treatment™ helps clear acne while helping to cleanse your pores. This unique acne treatment has even helped people who previously did not respond to topicals, antibiotics and painful laser treatments.*

    Painless, quick and effective are three words that describe the PPx Pore-Cleansing ACNE Treatment™. There are no numbing gels, no lengthy treatment times or no sensitivity to light, so you’re in and out in a flash. During a PPx painless acne treatment, the PPx hand piece is placed on the skin. A painless vacuum gently pulls impurities closer to the skin’s surface. You may even find your pores are cleansed of blackheads. In a fraction of a second, a painless treatment light flashes, helping to destroy bacteria. The PPx painless acne treatment helps leave yours skin clearer and cleaner.

  • Air Brush Tanning

    Ageless Remedies offers customized sunless tanning with the Sun Mist UV-Free Skin Treatment System. This treatment will enhance, nourish, and invigorate the skin while generating a natural looking, bronzed-touched glow in minutes. The skin enhancers used in this treatment are gently formulated with natural skin elixirs, and then combined with aloe and nourishing moisturizers. Results are immediate and can last up to 7 days.

  • Cellulite Tri-Active Treatments

    The term cellulite describes a pitting, bulging, and deformation of the skin caused by the over-inflation of fat cells through loosened fibrous bands in affected skin. Cellulite occurs in over 85% of women and usually appears on the thighs, buttocks, abdomen, calves, and arms. Genetics, age and weight gain all contribute to cellulite development.

    Ageless Remedies offers Tri-Active™ LaserDermology™ to battle this common skin condition. A series of treatments can minimize the appearance of cellulite, give a healthier appearance to your skin, complement liposuction procedures and, as a bonus, provide a relaxing and healthy therapeutic massage. Besides the thighs and buttocks for cellulite, most other parts of the body can be treated as well: the face for tightening, love handles, tummy, upper arms and neck. This procedure is not painful at all. In fact, most people report that it "just feels great!"

    During the procedure, the targeted cellulite fat cells are heated below the surface of the skin. This heat promotes better circulation to the local area, which may allow for more oxygen exchange for increased fat cell metabolism. This approach both mobilizes fat while at the same time stimulating the formation of new collagen. Ultimately, the procedure leads to tightening of unwanted cellulite skin.

    During the treatment you will feel a deep, soothing heat in the targeted area. The treatment can be compared to the feeling of the sensation of finishing an intense workout.

    Improved circulation, a decrease in muscle aches and pains and overall better health are some of the possible treatment benefits of Tri-Active™ LaserDermology™. You may notice skin tightening and firming skin after a few treatments. Although cellulite treatment is not a weight loss tool, patients may look and feel as though they have lost weight because their bodies are better contoured. A series of treatments is recommended for the best results.

  • Chemical Peels

    Ageless Remedies offers various peeling agents and are experts in performing many types of this skin rejuvenation procedure. Each patient receives a thorough evaluation and consultation to decide with chemical peel program is right for your individual skin.

    Chemical peels are used to treat and repair sun-damage, pigmentation, and fine lines. They can also be used to soften acne scarring and control active acne outbreaks. Peels can also be helpful for those individuals with facial blemishes, wrinkles, and uneven skin pigmentation. Results of chemical peels may also be enhanced when combined by new laser/light based rejuvenation techniques offered at Ageless Remedies.

    Peels are quick, relatively painless, and very effective. During a chemical peel a solution is applied to the face in order to encourage exfoliation. It uses a chemical solution to improve and smooth the texture of the skin by removing its damaged outer layers, causing it to separate and peel off. This allows new skin to regenerate.

    The down time (recovery time) is very short and the effects give you healthy, glowing skin. You can choose to have a single application or may do a series of peels, all based on your personal consultation with an experienced Ageless Remedies Professional.

  • Levulan Treatments

    Do you have skin that's less-than-perfect? Levulan® may be the solution you've been seeking. It is now becoming the treatment of choice for those who want skin-saving results without surgery. Levulan® is an aminolevulinic acid solution (a substance found naturally within your body). First, a clear aminolevulinic solution with a cotton swab applicator to skin that's plagued by either acne, acenic scarring or both. Left to absorb into your skin, the solution preps the treated area for the activation portion of the process by increasing the skin's sensitivity to light. Next, the solution is activated by the Blue Light therapy or IPL. The activated Levulan® begins killing the acne-causing bacteria and destroying any Actinic Keratoses (AK) lesions.

    Levulan® is used to treat precancerous skin lesions known as AK lesions and mild to moderate acne, Levulan® can also treat:

    Oily skin and slow the growth of oil-producing sebaceous glands
    Sun damaged skin
    Fine skin lines and creases
    Spot check

    While the face is the area most likely to be treated, Levulan® can be used safely on any part of the body such as the back, chest, scalp, and forearms. Levulan® treatments can make a significant change in tone, texture, and appearance of the skin. You will see improvements after one treatment but we do recommend a series for more dramatic results.

    During the actual treatment, you may experience a tingling sensation at the application site and possibly stinging or prickling feeling of the treated area. Immediately and in the weeks following the treatment, you may experience increased photosensitivity, changes of skin color, swelling, dry patches of skin that will peel, and sunburn like symptoms. It is important to remain completely out of the sun for 2 days after the treatment. Mineral sunblock is recommended during any sun exposure. Everyone reacts differently to Levulan ® so side effects may vary. All of the side effects are temporary and should improve by the end of the first week post treatment.

  • Laser Hair Removal

Unlike treatments of the past, laser hair removal allows you to receive a semi-permanent solution for unwanted hair wherever you would like to be smooth and silky all the time.

  • Injectables

    As we age, our faces begin to show the effects of gravity, sun exposure and years of facial muscle movement, such as smiling, chewing and squinting. The underlying tissues that keep our skin looking youthful and plumped up begin to break down, often leaving laugh lines, smile lines, crow's feet or facial creases over the areas where this muscle movement occurs.

    Ageless Remedies offers a variety of injectables and fillers that will soften lines and creases, temporarily restoring a smoother, more youthful-looking appearance. All of our injectables and fillers are FDA approved and offer proven, safe results. We offer complimentary consultations with our experienced team to discuss your treatment options.

  • Microdermabrasion

    The closest you'll ever get to flawless skin. A non-invasive treatment to reduce lines and fade sun-damaged skin. We use aluminum oxide and organic crystals to buff away those problem areas.

  • Photo Facial or IPL (Intense Pulsed Light)

    Ageless Remedies offers Intense Pulsed Light (IPL™) technology. It is a treatment breakthrough that makes it possible to correct a variety of benign skin conditions, such as facial skin imperfections, birthmarks, unwanted hair, the signs of aging, unsightly small veins, and other blemishes. IPL offers a safe, non-invasive solution that can be tailored for your individual condition and skin type, providing superior cosmetic results and outstanding satisfaction.

    Each treatment lasts for approximately 30 to 45 minutes, with little to no patient discomfort, and no to short downtime recovery. Patients can usually return to their normal routine as soon as treatment is completed. Your experienced Ageless Remedies Professional will discuss the post care and discuss the importance of staying out of the sun. Improvements associated with IPL are gradual and the number of treatments required to achieve the desired results will vary depending on your skin condition.

  • Vein Treatments

    Ageless Remedies offers Laser Vein Treatments and Sclerotherapy as proven treatments for treating unsightly facial and spider veins. Spider veins or telangiectasias of the legs are small purple, blue or red veins can form anywhere on the leg, from the top of the thigh to the ankle, and can sometimes occur on the face as well. These veins appear as connected lines resembling a sunburst or spider web pattern or as short, unconnected lines. Because of modern technology, both telangiectasias and superficial varicose veins can be treated effectively by Laser Vein Treatments as well as Sclerotherapy.

    Laser Vein Treatments offer excellent results when treating unsightly broken and dilated vessels as well as other unwanted vascular lesions, such as rosacea, port wine stains and other vascular birthmarks. New technology in laser treatments can effectively treat spider veins in the legs. Laser surgery sends very strong bursts of light onto the vein. This can makes the vein slowly fade and disappear. Lasers are very direct and accurate and most skin types and colors can be safely treated.
    Laser is more appealing to some because it does not use needles or incisions. Depending on the severity of the veins, two to five treatments are generally needed to remove spider veins in the legs.

    Sclerotherapy is a technique which involves the use of a very fine needle to inject a solution directly into the veins. The solution causes the blood within the vein to disappear or become less obvious. A slight to moderate burning sensation may be felt immediately after the injection, but this disappears within a few seconds. The same vein may need to be treated more than once. Normal activity can be resumed a few days after either treatment.
