Face & Skincare Procedures

Dr. Chen’s office has been offering extraordinary effective skin care programs that offer all skin types a healthier, more youthful complexion.

Obagi® Nu-Derm Skin Care Program

The Obagi® Nu-Derm Program is a skin care program designed to restore the health of the skin. It was created and developed to deliver medically proven result through the use of a skin care regimen available only through specially trained medical offices like ours.

Obagi® Nu-Derm is the only creative cream program designed for overall skin transformation. This concept is so revolutionary that it requires us to use the term “skin health” instead of “skin care.” The program emphasizes the unique concepts of correction and stimulation of the skin, which lead to regulating and strengthening of skin functions to produce collagen, elastin, and healthier skin cells. This leads to smooth, firm skin, with even color tone for a younger and healthier looking skin.

The program was initially developed and created by Dr. Zein Obagi, an internationally known and respected board certified dermatologist. Each product has been formulated to work in conjunction with the others for each patient’s individual regimen…to insure effective and harmonious results. It is designed to provide a tighter, smoother, healthier, younger looking skin, regardless of age, color or skin type. Some of the basic principles behind the Obagi® Nu-Derm system include enhancing, correction, stimulation, moisturizing, prevention of sun damage and maintenance once the correction is obtained.

The Obagi® Nu-Derm Program is specifically designed to correct pre-cancerous lesions, uneven pigmentation, unsightly blemishes, sun damaged skin, some fine wrinkles, photo-aged skin, age spots, acne and large pores. It can be used to treat skin problems on most areas of the body such as face, hands, neck, back arms, and legs. The regimen would differ depending upon the area being treated.

Chemical Peel

Chemical peels remove damaged outer layers of skin on the face to smooth texture, reduce scarring, and remove blemishes and pre-cancerous growths to produce healthy, glowing skin. Peel formulas and strengths are tailored to each patient and range from AHA peels designed for milder skin conditions and acne treatments, to deeper TCA peels such as the Obagi® Blue Peel. Peels can be combined with other procedures such as facelifts for a younger look.

Acne Treatment

Acne can be unattractive. It can also cause permanent scarring and emotional distress. Fortunately, several treatment options are available. Treatments for active acme includes skincare, cleansers and typical medications, antibiotics, and for severe cases, laser treatment may be recommended. Results are usually visible as soon as the first session.

Acne scarring can be treated in a variety of ways including certain skin care products, chemical peels, laser or pulsed light treatments, soft tissue fillers, dermabrasion and microdermabrasion. Subcision with TCA peel are latest wonders in this difficult area.

Acne is the term for the blocked pores (blackheads and whiteheads), pimples, and deeper lumps (cysts or nodules) that can appear typically on the face, neck, chest, back, shoulders and upper arms. Seventeen million Americans currently have acne, making it the most common skin disease in the country. While it affects mostly teenagers, and a lot of teenagers have some form of acne, adults of any age can have it. Acne is not life-threatening, but it can cause physical disfigurement (scarring) and emotional distress.
Treatment for acne varies depending on the type and severity of lesions, skin type and the patient’s age and lifestyle, but on average results are visible in six to eight weeks. Options include:

  • Chemical Peel
  • PhotoFacial (intensive pulse light treatment)
  • Levulan®
  • Topical and oral agents

For Acne scars:

  • Soft tissue fillers and fat transfer
  • Punch excisional surgery for deep “ice-pick” pitted scarring
  • Dermabrasion and microdermabrasion

Botox®

BOTOX® is a highly effective, non-surgical procedure that can reduce the appearance of wrinkles.  It is a simple procedure that smoothes the deep, persistent lines between the brows that developed slowly over time.  One small treatment relaxes those muscles that caused the lines to form and keeps them relaxed up to four months.  The best part about Botox is that now it is FDA approved.
