This laser will improve skin tone and texture, and give the skin a more youthful appearance. It will reduce wrinkles around eyes, age spots, melasma, acne and surgical scars. It is a less aggressive form of skin resurfacing.
Patients use a topical anesthetic on the skin before the treatment and cold air is used on the treatment area during the procedure to minimize discomfort. After the treatment most patients report feeling similar to having too much sun. Downtime is minimal.
Redness and mild swelling should be expected following this treatment. Typically this laser is done in a series of 4 treatments, for optimal results.
Tattoo & Brown Spot Removal
Laser tattoo removal is a simple cosmetic procedure that allows unwanted tattoos to be removed through a series of laser treatments. Extremely short pulses of highly-focused light energy are directed at tattoo ink in the skin. When the correct wavelength of light and sufficient fluence (energy) is used, the tattoo ink will rapidly heat up and break into smaller pieces.
The body’s immune system will then remove these shattered particles and allow the tattoo to fade. Often, 3 to 10 sessions are needed to fade and remove a tattoo completely.
Variations in the number of sessions required are due mostly to factors specific to the tattoo (density, depth, type of ink, color of ink).
Laser Genesis is a noninvasive, restorative treatment, designed to eliminate wrinkles, large pores, and splotchy redness; all while improving the skin’s texture and tone.

ThermiTight is the name of a peer-reviewed protocol described as “thermistor-controlled subdermal skin tightening.” The ThermiRF system is used along with a tiny thermistor probe, which is inserted under the skin using local anesthesia, to heat subdermal tissues to a user-selected specific temperature. During the ThermiTight procedure, internal temperatures are monitored and regulated by the system computer.
In addition, advanced thermal image guidance provides the physician with real time external skin temperature monitoring to ensure presicion of the heating effect while maintaining safety. ThermiTight treatment areas include: neck, breasts, arms, abdomen, thighs and knees. This is a painless, single treatment solution. There is little to no downtime.
ThermiSmooth Face is performed using a specially designed thermistor-regulated hand piece, which delivers precise heating to the skin’s surface. There are a series of treatments over 6-8 weeks that are gentle and patients often say it feels like receiving a warming massage. This is gentle heating using temperature controlled radiofrequency energy, to stimulate collagen remodeling.
This procedure is non-invasive and has no downtime. A series of 3-6 treatments are often needed for maximum results. ThermiSmooth Face treatment areas include: forehead, cheeks, eyes and mouth.
Childbirth and the natural aging process cause changes which may affect feminine wellness. A particularly strenuous vaginal childbirth, or multiple births, can cause stretching of the vagina. The effects of menopause can also cause physical and functional changes, such as excessive dryness. Both situations can rob women (and their partners) of their sense of well-being and happiness.
ThermiVa treatments use radiofrequency energy to gently heat tissue to rejuvenate collagen, without discomfort or downtime. A recent study documented multiple benefits for patients who complained about vaginal laxity and other issues associated with vulvovaginal youthfulness and well-being.

Botox is also used for the symptoms of severe underarm sweating when medicines used on the skin (topical) do not work well enough in people 18 and older. Botox injections are expected to temporarily stop the production of excessive sweat in the treated areas only. Sweat continues to be produced elsewhere. This treatment typically lasts 6-9 months.
Both Botox and Dysport are derived from botulinum toxin Type A and are administered by a healthcare professional as a simple, nonsurgical treatment. Individually, they are injected directly into the muscles and work by blocking nerve impulses to the injected areas. Dr. Grevey and his staff can help you determine which product is right for you.
ALMI (Autologous Lipocyte Micronized Injection) is a revolutionary skin rejuvenation procedure using your own tissues to restore volume, texture and tone. The all-natural procedure is a simple outpatient treatment that can turn back the clock in less than 45 minutes with minimal to no downtime for Face, Hands and Hair. When people get older and lose collagen, or even experience weight loss, volume is depleted and the structural support to your skin in lost. Your body slows collagen production in your mid-to late-20’s. By age 40, most people have up to 20% collagen loss and by age 50 30% collagen loss. In order to restore the volume to a younger state, the volume and structure must be rebuilt to have a more youthful appearance. Using a combination of the body’s regenerative cells and fat tissue, the ALMI offers complete rejuvenation and natural looking results without going under the knife. The ALMI Procedure is a nonsurgical treatment program that uses your own regenerative cells and fat tissue to address everything that happens to our skin with aging.
NovaThreads is a synthetic absorbable surgical suture composed of polydioxanone. PDO sutures are used to perform cardiothoracic surgery (such as open-heart surgery). It’s one of the safest materials to be implanted in the body. Your skin fully absorbs it within 4 to 6 months and won’t leave you with any scar tissue. The NovaThreads are needles that are pre-loaded with a PDO threads. We simply insert the needle parallel to the surface of the skin and pull the needle out. The thread will remain under the skin. Our skin is very good at repairing itself, and by inserting PDO threads we make it ‘heal’ itself by creating new collagen, naturally. Although PDO threads can be inserted anywhere, one area they are especially effective is the neck and jawline.

Sclerotherapy is a technique that has been around for decades to treat spider veins and some smaller varicose veins. This procedure involves injecting a sclerosing solution directly into the small veins.
This irritates the blood vessel, causing it to seal off so blood can no longer pass through the vein. This procedure is very effective with minimal discomfort and essentially no downtime.
We recommend wearing a pressure bandage, such as pressure stockings, for 48 hours following the procedure. A series of treatments is often necessary to obtain maximum results.
Fractionated CO2 Laser
The Fractionated carbon dioxide laser removes layers of skin tissue in a fractionated method (columns of skin are removed, leaving the skin surrounding each column in tact to aid in healing) to treat the skin tone and texture, sun damaged skin, and age spots.
This procedure is performed in our office using topical and local anesthesia. Often the use of pain and or relaxation medications are utilized during the procedure. Typically one laser treatment will achieve the desired outcome.

As these vessels or pigment cells are targeted, they are eliminated and skin is returned to it’s natural color and tone. Excel V uses new cooling technologies which produce continuous cooling before, during and after the laser pulse. You can expect some redness and swelling following the procedure.

Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure to remove excess skin from the upper and/or lower eyelids. Lower eyelid blepharoplasty improves puffy lower eyelid “bags” and reduces wrinkling of the skin.
When an advanced amount of upper eyelid skin is present, the skin may protrude over the eyelashes and cause a loss of peripheral vision. The outer and upper parts of the visual field are most commonly affected and the condition may cause difficulty with activities such as driving or reading.
In this circumstance, upper eyelid blepharoplasty is performed to improve peripheral vision. Both of these procedures can be done in our office utilizing local anesthetic.
After the procedure, patients can expect some bruising and/or swelling that will gradually improve the next week.
A brow lift, also known as a forehead lift, minimizes the wrinkle lines that develop across the forehead, as well as those that occur on the bridge of the nose and between the eyes. This procedure improves what are commonly referred to as frown lines, and re-positions a low and sagging brow.
