Skin Care – The Basics
Step 1: Cleanse
Sensational skin starts here. Cleansing removes the build-up of pollutants that have settled on the skin’s surface throughout the day. Thorough cleansing using the appropriate product for your skin type, is the most critical step in a successful home care system.
Step 2: Correct
Target specific skin concerns…minimize the signs of aging, relieve dryness, clear oily/acne-prone skin, reduce redness, refine texture and even out discoloration. Formulations of alpha hydroxy acids, acne treatments, antioxidant serums, retinols, pigmentation arresters, and growth serums used daily will reward you with clearer, younger and more even toned skin. Choosing the right ones for your skin type should not be a “guessing game.”
Step 3: Hydrate
Moisturizers are vital to every home regimen. They help to nourish, protect and control moisture loss. Again, proper choice makes the difference.
Step 4: Protect
Solar defense products guard against premature aging, hyper-pigmentation, skin cancer and sun damage. Year round, daily protection is vital if you wish to keep the ravages of age and sun damage at bay.
We offer professional skin treatments emphasizing skin health and preventative care. These treatments are tailored to meet your individual needs, targeting specific concerns and helping to restore optimum skin health.

Total Dermatology Esthetic Treatments & Services
TD Clinical Facial Treatment
First your skin is thoroughly cleansed under steam to remove surface impurities. An application of an enzymatic exfoliant dissolves dead skin cells helping to reveal a more refined texture. Gentle extractions aid in purifying the pores by clearing impacted oil and debris. Cryotherapy is performed to reduce any redness and to tighten the pores. A relaxing aromatherapy massage follows to increase blood circulation improving skin color & texture. Next, an intensive treatment masque will be selected for your specific conditions. A conditioner will be misted onto the skin to tone, balance and restore the natural pH of the skin in preparation for hydration. Finally, an SPF product is applied to protect from UV assault. For best results, treatments should be repeated monthly.
Because the SmoothBeam actually alters the function of the oil-producing sebaceous glands, active acne is greatly reduced. Less acne translate to less future acne scarring. SmoothBeam is frequently used in combination with Vbeam laser treatments to reduce redness from acne scars. In 2010 a new acne system came on the market and is making great strides in helping control acne. Isolaz uses suction and bacteria-killing light to remove the “food source” for acne bacteria and kill the present p.acnes bacteria within and around the follicle.
Results may vary for each patient and each laser system; you should discuss your expectations with Dr. Pilest. Several treatments may be required, depending on anatomical location and the extent of desired results.
