Skin Resurfacing & Tightening

Innovative Energy-Based Rejuvenation

At Schaberg Dermatology, we are proud to offer the most extensive spectrum of energy-based skin resurfacing and rejuvenation services in the Glen Carbon/Edwardsville area. Learn about our different treatment options and please contact us with questions.

Clear & Brilliant Gentle Laser Resurfacing

A new approach to laser skin enhancement, Clear & Brilliant® is an FDA-approved fractional laser device that works as a preventive anti-aging treatment. Clear & Brilliant helps you recover the glow of younger-looking skin and delivers a renewed, ultra soft and smooth texture.

Clear & Brilliant also acts as a maintenance treatment following more aggressive treatments such as Fraxel®. Safe and effective for all skin types, Clear & Brilliant is gentler and milder than Fraxel but a step above chemical peels or microdermabrasion. The procedure is comfortable, fast, effective and affordable, and requires little to no downtime.

Fraxel Re:Store Dual Laser Resurfacing

Face it: life changes your skin. But Fraxel restores it! With the Fraxel Re:Store Dual device we can reverse years of sun damage, wrinkles and acne scarring so you can achieve the fresh, healthy skin of your youth.

The Fraxel Re:Store Dual device features two lasers in one handpiece. This newest generation of laser technology removes pigmented lesions such as melasma, age spots and sun spots on the face, neck, chest, back, hands and arms, while smoothing out wrinkles and acne scars—safely and effectively. In just one easy treatment, pigmentation, melasma and sun spots are eliminated. Expect four treatments to reduce wrinkles, and up to six treatments for scars.

Thermage Non-Surgical Skin Lift

Thermage® is an effective way to tighten skin without surgery—or downtime! Just a single Thermage treatment will provide improved tightness and firmer facial contours. Thermage is particularly good for delivering subtle brow, jowl and neck lifts.

Radio frequency heating of the skin’s dermis layer causes contraction of loose skin to effectively firm and tighten the face, eyelids, abdomen, arms, thighs, knees and buttocks.

Fraxel and Thermage Combination Treatment

Like many treatments, it's often better to address a condition with more than one modality. The combination Thermage and Fraxel therapy is the best solution for skin laxity, fine lines and sun damage. A single Thermage treatment to tighten skin followed by a series of four Fraxel treatments to resurface the skin will provide the synergy needed for a whole new you

Alma Intense Pulsed Light for Wrinkles, Rosacea & More

Intense Pulsed Light technology gently yet successfully treats a range of skin conditions. With little or no downtime, multiple complexion problems are addressed with a single treatment. Imperfections such as erythema of rosacea, superficial telangiectasia, dyschromia, age spots and other signs of photoaging can be replaced by newer, younger looking skin.

Absorption of light energy into the skin fades redness and shrinks dilated blood vessels, while brown spots are exfoliated and skin texture is refined. Treatment is gentle with no downtime. An average of 3-4 treatments are recommended.

GentleYAG Beard Bump & Hidradenitis Suppurativa Treatment

Our GentleYAG® laser is very effective in reducing wrinkles and veins, but also for the treatment of pseudofolliculitis barbae, sometimes known as beard or shaving bumps. Additionally, we use GentleYAG to treat hidradenitis suppurativa, a chronic skin condition featuring cysts and scarring in places such as the underarms or groin.

Vbeam Perfecta to Treat Scars, Stretch Marks and More

Our Vbeam® Perfecta pulsed dye laser system uses an intense but gentle burst of light energy to selectively target specific areas within the skin. Blood vessels or melanin pigment in that area absorb the laser energy, which quickly and effectively diminishes their appearance.

The pulsed dye laser treatment of Vbeam is safe, effective and proven to deliver dramatic results for the treatment of the redness of rosacea, blood vessels, cherry angiomas, hemangiomas, port wine stains and some stretch marks.
