Years of repeated facial expressions, i.e. concentrating, squinting and frowning, can leave your skin furrowed and wrinkled. Dr. Wendy McCurley is trained in the administration of Botox to reduce fine lines and wrinkles in the face.
Chemical peels are a fantastic tool to improve the long term health of your skin. Simply put, a chemical peel removes the old, dead, pigmented skin and leaves behind renewed, softer and more evenly toned skin. Medical grade TCA peels can effectively treat acne, pre-malignant skin lesions, sun damage and fine lines on the face.
Combined with a healthy skin regimen, dermal fillers can lessen the appearance of wrinkles and collagen loss that occur with time. We offer Juvederm Ultra Plus XC and Voluma XC. Fillers contain a modified hyaluronic acid (HA) made from a naturally occurring complex sugar. Both the Juverderm Ulra Plus XC and the Voluma XC contain lidocaine. We also use topical numbing agents to help make your treatment more comfortable.
Juvederm Voluma XC instantly adds volume lost to aging in the cheek area by creating a natural contour and subtle lift, giving a more youthful profile, with results lasting up to two years.
Juvederm Ultra Plus XC treats moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds such as parentheses lines, vertical lip lines, corner lines and marionette lines that appear around your nose and mouth, with smooth and natural looking results lasting up to one year.
BroadBand Light (BBL™), commonly referred to as IPL, Intense Pulse Light, PhotoTherapy and PhotoFacial, is the most advanced light-based therapy available. According to PSP* this treatment is one of the fastest growing aesthetic treatments. Why? Because BBL™ BroadBand Light is a very effective treatment that is non-invasive and has no downtime.
What is BBL™ BroadBand Light?
BBL™ BroadBand Light is a light based therapy used to reverse the effects of many skin conditions. BBL™ uses light energy to comfortably remove skin blemishes on the face or body. The BBL™ BroadBand Light treatment is a 30-minute treatment where a chilled sapphire crystal is placed on the skin while a quick light is flashed. BBL™ is a no downtime, non-invasive treatment.
What conditions can BroadBand Light Treat?
What can I expect?
Post-treatment you may be mildly red. This commonly lasts for a few hours after the treatment, sometimes longer, but is an expected response to the treatment. Over the next few days you will notice your pigmentation gradually getting darker. The darkened pigmentation will begin to flake off for up to 7 days before they disappear. Because this is a non-ablative treatment you can use makeup after the treatment.
Hair removal is one of the most popular aesthetic treatments in the US today and with newer laser & light systems, like the Sciton Joule™, this treatment has become very effective and comfortable.

What can I expect?
Post-treatment you may be mildly red in the areas treated. This will usually last for a few hours after the treatment, sometimes longer, but is an expected response to the treatment. You will notice the density of your hair will thin out after each treatment and will gradually fall out. After you have completed your series you will notice a majority, if not all, of your unwanted hair is gone permanently.
Over time, your skin can lose its youthful glow due to sun exposure and your body’s natural aging process. As a result, your body may develop sunspots, fine lines, wrinkles, and lose that natural healthy glow. Previous lasers couldn’t effectively remove this damage, because the treatment was either too shallow or too deep. Halo™ eliminates years of damage by precisely targeting the right depth. Halo™ restores the luminous glow you had when you were younger.
What is Halo™ Hybrid Fractional Laser?
Halo™ is the world’s first and only hybrid laser using two different lasers to simultaneously treat and rejuvenate your skin. Halo™ delivers both ablative and non-ablative lasers to the same treatment area. This gives the patient ablative type results with non-ablative downtime.
What conditions can Halo™ Hybrid Fractional Laser treat?
What can I expect?
Halo™ is a complete skin rejuvenation treatment. You will see improvements in overall tone and texture in addition to significant removal of discoloration, reduction in fine lines, reduced pore size, skin reflectivity and glow… without the downtime of traditional lasers.

Scientific evidence shows regular maintenance treatments using Forever Young BBL™ can restore gene expression patterns of aged human skin. As reported in the Wall Street Journal, Stanford University revealed over 1,000 gene expressions became rejuvenated to be more like youthful skin resulting in decreased elastosis and more uniform collagen deposition, leading to improvement in fine lines and wrinkles.
