Age Spots

Topical treatments along with Photo-facials can be used in treating all manner of age spots, from slight sun spots, to darker, blotchy skin that has been discolored from age and extended exposure to the sun and elements.

Cysts

These growths are common on the face, body and even the scalp. They look like little underground balls and tend to increase in size over time. Occasionally they can get inflamed and become painful. However, they can be easily removed with minor dermatological surgery. If you want to be rid of yours, do not hesitate to come in for a consultation.

Eczema and Allergic Reactions

Some people have sensitive skin that tends to develop itchy, red, dry rashes. Often, these are seasonal and appear in patients whose families have members with asthma and/or environmental allergies. Similar rashes can be caused by contact with irritants such as jewelry, perfumes and others. In the summer, poison ivy can erupt in a severe form of eczema with itchy, weepy blisters at the site of contact. See Dr. Marraccini to determine the best treatment for your eczema and rashes.

Facial Blemishes/Acne

Acne can occur at any age in both males and females. It is not only a skin problem, but can have psychological consequences. Treatments range from topical to oral, depending on the extent of the condition. Cystic acne, an especially severe variant, can result in permanent scarring if not treated early and appropriately.

Hair Removal

Men and women are bothered by hair growing in areas it doesn’t belong. The laser is highly successful in the elimination of unwanted hair by targeting the pigment in the root of the growing hair. Any body area is fair game, literally from head to toe. Men especially enjoy getting rid of the hair growing on their ears and back. Women, of course, know that all unwanted hair can be made to go away. Dr. Marraccini and her team have excellent results with permanent hair removal.

Leg Veins

Leg veins can be managed easily and permanently with laser and needle sclerotherapy. Complimentary consults are available Monday-Saturday.

Mesotherapy

Mesotherapy is a minimally invasive procedure used to treat cellulite, promote weight loss, reduce underlying fat deposits and support anti-aging of skin. Medications are injected directly into the dermis at the site of the condition being treated. It is introduced in microscopic quantities of natural extracts, homeopathic agents, pharmaceuticals and vitamins directly beneath the skin. This helps eliminate side effects and stimulates the body to heal itself. Because the target areas are immediately reached with undiluted medication, the amounts needed for effective treatment are minimal, making Mesotherapy cost effective and relatively quick. The procedure is virtually painless, and the results are a great alternative to surgery.

Nappage

Nappage, a Mesotherapy technique, involves minute injections of vitamins, collagen stimulants, and homeopathic substances that support healthy, glowing skin. These injections are administered just under the surface of the skin and can show both immediate as well as long-term benefits. You will see results after your first treatment. Nappage is a facial therapy that originated in France, and is used to stimulate collagen production. Nappage is fast acting and virtually painless.
