All of our treatments improve the appearance of the face and body any time of year
Albertville, MN (Vocus) April 12, 2010
Dr. Barry LaBine announced today that Refine Dermatique will present an educational event at the Riverwood Inn and Conference Center in Otsego, MN. The event, scheduled for April 22, 2010 will focus on treatments to prepare face and body for the summer season.
“All of our treatments improve the appearance of the face and body any time of year,” says Dr. Barry LaBine, a board-certified dermatologist and Owner / Medical Director of Refine Dermatique. “As we head into the summer, [swimsuit, shorts and wedding season], there are very specific concerns that people really start to think about such as sagging skin, uneven skin tone, fine lines and wrinkles and unwanted hair. We look forward to sharing treatment options for each of these during our Get Ready for Summer educational seminar. I’m particularly excited to unveil some new combinations of treatments that can achieve even greater results. By layering specific laser treatments, we can address two totally different issues, such as uneven skintone, plus wrinkles.” A board-certified dermatologist, Dr. LaBine has a deep knowledge of the anatomy of the skin and lasers. By applying this knowledge and experience, Dr. LaBine can achieve visible results for his patients that go beyond typical skincare treatments.
Refine Dermatique offers the latest combination treatments that include Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing, MicroLaserPeels, Skin Tightening, Laser Hair Removal and Photo Facial Rejuvenation. The Get Ready for Summer event will focus on these and some very specific treatments to address summertime concerns such as:
Unwanted Hair: Hair on the legs, underarms, back, neck, face and chest can be messy, timely and expensive to remove; not to mention it is a source of irritation and can make one self-conscious. Americans purchase more than half a million laser hair removal treatments per year – making it one of the most popular treatments by cosmetic physicians and medical spas. “Patients love not having to think about shaving or waxing, especially in the summer when summer fashion and activities can be hindered by irritated skin,” says Dr. LaBine.
Acne and Uneven Skin: Chemical Peels are an excellent, inexpensive method for treating a variety of summer skin issues. Chemical peels exfoliate the skin, relying on fruit acids, herbs, and antioxidants to loosen the “glue” that binds dead cells to the skin’s surface. Increasing the production of collagen, and improve the appearance of acne, rosacea, environmental damage, hyperpigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles and even acne scarring are the main goals when applying a chemical peel. “I recommend chemical peels because the results are almost instantaneous and there’s very little downtime,” says Dr. LaBine
Sagging or Loose Skin: Tighter, smoother skin on the face, chest, abdomen and neck can be achieved using a skin tightening laser called Skin Tyte. The Skin Tyte laser that Refine Dermatique uses affects the collagen deep in the skin, ultimately resulting in a tightening and smoothing of the skin, restoring it to its natural beauty.
Wrinkles and Lines: Look years younger this summer by smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles with BOTOX® Cosmetic and Facial Fillers. BOTOX Cosmetic is the ultimate wrinkle eraser for the forehead, between the eyebrows and around the eyes. Facial fillers such as Juvederm™ smooth out lines and wrinkles along the sides of the nose and the mouth. Another use for facial fillers is to plump up the lips and eliminate lip lines which can make lipstick feather and bleed.
The public is invited to enjoy refreshments, treatment giveaways, exclusive special offers, and information about Refine Dermatique’s services. The seminar will be held at the Riverwood Inn and Conference Center at 10990 95th Street NE in Otsego, MN. Seating is limited. To reserve a space at Refine Dermatique’s Education Seminar on Thursday, April 22 at 6pm, RSVP by calling 763.420.7546.
