Erase the Years with Intense Pulsed Light

By | Blog, Facials | No Comments

Eventually, we all begin to notice that our skin appears less smooth or even-toned than it used to. The sun and other pleasures and stresses of life leave their mark on us. Fortunately, we have advanced technology that can erase some of the years for us. The Intense Pulsed Light (IPL), also called the FotoFacial®, is becoming a popular cosmetic treatment to correct sun spots, age spots, redness and more.

What is a FotoFacial®?
The FotoFacial® uses a laser light to send energy deep into the skin. It removes cells that produce brown discolorations as well as diminishes tiny blood vessels that cause redness of the skin. The IPL also stimulates the production of collagen, this results in tightening of the skin. You’ll leave with skin that is smoother, softer, more even-toned, and tighter. And, it can be used on almost any part of your body, including your hands, feet and neck.

What to Expect
You’ll need to come in for a series of sessions to enjoy a significant improvement. Each treatment you’ll see results. Dark or red spots will begin to fade away before your eyes. There is minimal discomfort after each treatment. You’ll notice skin darkening and mild redness after the procedure, but then it will begin to fade away.

Improve your appearance with a FotoFacial®. You’ll see results after just one session. With nine locations in Pennsylvania and West Virginia – three of them in the Pittsburgh area alone – you’re never far away. Our friendly, knowledgeable staff and state-of-the-art technology are ready to you meet all of your beauty goals.

Summer Facials And AromaTouch

By | AromaTouch, Blog, Facials | No Comments

Cool off with Summer Facials and Our new AromaTouch technique. The Summer Specials include:

  • Buy One, Get One Free
  • With purchase of any antioxidant, 1 free sunscreen or $25 off
  • NEW Aromatouch techniqueAugustspecials2

Patients who schedule a facial this August also have the choice of 6 different treatments that can be added, including: firming Vitamin C, anti-aging, deep pore cleansing, or sensitive skin/calming.

“Facials are a really great way to wake up the skin,” says Dr. Golla. “The top layer of skin is constantly in flux. New skin cells push out old skin cells, and as you age this process becomes less efficient. Facials are a great way of removing dead skin cells, increasing collagen production, and improving the look and feel of skin. Our new Aromatouch technique is one of our new products and services we’re incorporating and I think its a really great way to infuse the skin with oils that it needs to look its best. I encourage anyone who has dry or red skin to give it a try.”

All products and services being offered in the Summer Facial specials will be administered by trained cosmetology and dermatology technicians, and Dr. Golla as available and required.

Dr. Dinakar Golla is a Pittsburgh native and a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. He has extensive experience in skincare, cosmetic surgery, and has authored countless articles on surgery techniques and injections. His skills and reputation has led him to lecture over 100 times around the US and the world. For more information AromaTouch and our summer specials, please call us at 412-963-6677.
