As a complement to its cosmetic services, Albany Dermatology offers esthetic services to improve the external appearance of the skin. A VISIA Complexion Analysis assesses skin health and recommends rejuvenation and care options, including chemical peels and facials as well as microdermabrasion treatment.
All treatments utilize medical-grade products and receive professional oversight. We carry several high-quality skin care products from Avene, Elta MD, Glytone, and Revision Skincare for your home use to help maintain maximum rejuvenation benefits.
At Skin Specialists, we ask that you begin with a personal consultation and VISIA Complexion Analysis. The VISIA is a multi-spectral imaging and analysis for six areas affecting complexion health and appearance; wrinkles, spots, pores, evenness (the color variation in the skin tone); porphyrins (evidence of bacteria in pores), and UV spots (characteristic of photo damage, typically from overexposure to the sun). This allows us to evaluate your skin for a number of skin conditions, including photoaging, rosacea and acne. We can then formulate a skin care program specifically tailored for your individual needs and track your progress. The VISIA also provides comparison information of your complexion's characteristics to other women of the same age and ethnicity. This allows us to develop optimal treatments and regimens for each individual patient. A printed report is provided on the details of the imaging session along with recommendations for rejuvenation and skin care options.
Facials help erase the traces of time, stress, and environmental toxins. All our facials include cleansing with steam, exfoliation, and extraction when indicated, a skin analysis mask and moisturizer with SPF, all customized to accommodate the following skin types:
Any of these customized facials are offered as a MINI FACIAL to accommodate the busy schedule. A TEEN FACIAL is also available specifically for teens, which includes an initial VISIA Complexion Analysis and MINI FACIAL as well as comprehensive guidance on skin care practices, including cleansing techniques, care at home, and the use of make up and sunscreens.
Finally, a BACK FACIAL is available specifically for your back, which includes exfoliation, mask and light massage, designed for all skin types.
Microdermabrasion removes dead skin cells and unclogs pores, which increases the completion of extractions.
The finishing facial and mask calms, soothes and leaves skin fresh, clean, bright and new! Formulated to accommodate all skin types.
As an added option, MICRODERMABRASION and a customized FACIAL can be combined to enhance treatment outcomes.
