Excessive Sweating

Sweating on a hot day or while working out is expected, but if you find that your underarms become excessively sweaty regardless of your circumstances, you may be suffering from a condition called axillary hyperhidrosis. Excessive sweating is more than just uncomfortable or embarrassing, it can make a person avoid social situations or job opportunities, and even stain and ruining clothing.

Fine Lines/Wrinkles

Fine lines and wrinkles are an inevitable part of the aging process, and can detract from a person’s natural beauty. There are many different types of wrinkles and wrinkle treatments, ranging from shallow to deep and occurring in various locations on the face, neck, chest, and hands.

Hair Loss Conditions

Significant hair loss or noticeable thinning of the hair can be a frustrating and traumatic experience, regardless of age or gender. While men most commonly begin losing their hair as they age, hair loss and thinning hair can also affect women

Hair Removal

Unwanted hair? On average, people spend over 100 hours a year shaving or waxing. Say goodbye to wasted time, laser hair removal is the answer.

Pigment Problems

Pigmentation problems in the skin can include dark spots from sun damage, melasma, birthmarks, and hyper or hypopigmentation. Unwanted pigmentation in the skin can cause a mottled, uneven skin tone that detracts from a person’s natural beauty; in addition, sudden changes in pigmentation, such as a new mole or suspicious dark spot, can potentially be indicative of skin cancer, and should be checked out immediately by a board-certified dermatologist.

Psoriasis

Psoriasis is a chronic skin condition in which skin cells reproduce and mature at a much faster rate than they should, causing patches of dry, thick, scaly skin as well as small bumps.

Types of Skin Cancer

Skin cancer typically occurs on one of three forms, depending on severity. Each have different symptoms and require specific treatments, so it is vital to talk with an AVA MD specialist if you suspect you have an abnormal skin condition.

Skin Laxity

As we age, our bodies produce less collagen and elastin, which are two substances necessary for keeping skin tight, supple, and elastic. As our elasticity breaks down, our skin begins to lose its battle with gravity and starts to thin, sag, and droop.

Skin Resurfacing

Age, genetics, and sun exposure are just a few of the factors that can contribute to skin concerns such as wrinkles, dark spots, and uneven skin tone and texture. These concerns affect many men and women, and can detract from a person’s natural beauty. Skin resurfacing is a proven method of skin rejuvenation that can address a wide range of skin issues.

Skin Tightening

As we age, our skin starts losing volume due a decrease in the amount of collagen produced. This loss of volume, combined with the effects of gravity, sun damage, and age, can lead to sagging, drooping, lax skin. This lax skin can lead to “turkey neck,” prominent jowls, and less defined contour of the face and neck.

Spider Veins

Do spider veins on your legs make you feel too self-conscious to show your legs in public? Do you find that makeup still does not do enough to cover a visible cluster of veins on your face? These small blue, red, or purplish lines can be effectively treated with one or a combination of treatments.

Stubborn Fat

Self-conscious about dimpled skin or small areas of fat? Our non-surgical body contouring techniques will assist you in getting back into shape.

Sun Damage

Sun damage can accumulate even during cloudy days and on days where your only sun exposure is during the commute to work. Sun damage is the main cause of premature aging, leading to wrinkles and sun spots.

Volume Loss

Volume loss is a common side effect of growing older. As we age, our skin stops producing collagen and elastin, which are two essential substances for keeping skin firm and elastic. A lack of collagen and elastin means that wrinkles form more easily, and facial contour can start to lose definition due to skin beginning to sag
