Laser & Skin

When your skin looks its best, you feel better too. At The Maas Clinic, we offer a wide range of treatments and services to keep your complexion in top form every season of life. From laser technology to the tried-and-true facial and body peels, we will help you address concerns, minimize imperfections and enhance your healthy radiance. From hair removal to sweat reduction, our San Francisco office offers all the treatments you need to achieve your aesthetic goals.

Facial/Body Peels

Chemical peels are the ultimate exfoliation treatment, removing outermost dermal layers to reveal softer, more vibrant skin underneath. These procedures come in an array of formulations and depths, so we can recommend the right treatment for you based on the amount of correction you might need. Light peels offer superficial improvement and require no downtime, while deep peels require some recovery but provide dramatic, long-lasting results. While chemical peels are most frequently performed on the face, they also produce excellent results on sun-exposed areas like the chest, back and the backs of the hands. Our team at The Maas Clinic will assist you in choosing the right peel treatment for you.

Photorejuvenation (IPL)

Chemical peels are not the only way to refresh and rejuvenate the skin at The Maas Clinic. We also feature photorejuvenation, a treatment that addresses the symptoms of sun damage and early signs of aging. This noninvasive treatment is also useful in treating the redness and inflammation commonly seen with rosacea. A topical numbing cream is administered before the procedure to ensure patient comfort, and there is no downtime after your session. Treatments typically take 30 minutes or less once the numbing cream takes effect and patients usually see optimal results after a series of treatment sessions.

Laser Hair Removal

Unwanted facial and body hair can be addressed through laser hair removal, using the highly-rated LightSheer DUET system. This laser targets the hair follicles, damaging them, so hair falls out, and future hair has difficulty growing. The procedure is relatively comfortable, and patients do not have any downtime to schedule in after treatment. A series of appointments is necessary to achieve full results, which should be long-lasting. In fact, laser hair removal offers permanent hair reduction for most patients.

Vein Treatments

Broken capillaries and spider veins are rarely much of a medical concern, but they can indeed become a cosmetic nuisance. At The Maas Clinic, we offer photorejuvenation treatments for broken capillaries and redness that might appear on the face as a result of skin conditions like rosacea. Spider veins, which frequently present on the legs, can be eliminated through an injectable treatment known as sclerotherapy. During your treatment session, a sclerosing agent is injected directly into the visible vein, causing it to collapse and disappear over time.

MiraDry

Excessive sweating is a debilitating and embarrassing problem that can have a direct impact on a person’s quality of life. Known as hyperhidrosis, this condition did not have many treatment options beyond prescription-strength topical deodorants or surgery until somewhat recently. Now, MiraDry can improve underarm dryness by eliminating the sweat glands that lead to the issue. The device delivers electrical energy into the glands, destroying them without traumatizing surrounding skin and tissue. Just one treatment offers long-lasting results.

Latisse Solution

Latisse is a prescription medication, available at The Maas Clinic, is applied topically to the eyelids to grow and thicken eyelashes. The active ingredient in the formulation, bimatoprost ophthalmic solution, enhances the growth stage of lashes, making it longer and allowing more lashes to grow. Patients will notice a gradual difference in both the length and thickness of their lashes. You will need to continue to apply the medication to maintain the positive results.

CoolSculpting

Take care of those problem spots like a muffin top or love handles without surgery. CoolSculpting delivers targeted cooling to focalized areas of fat, freezing and destroying the fat cells to create a leaner, smoother contour. The procedure is not painful and does not require anesthesia or recovery time. The results appear in the months following the procedure and will be permanent as long as a healthy weight is maintained.

Body Skin Tightening

Cellulite plagues most women at some point, but now there are treatment options to eliminate the skin dimpling without surgery. VelaShape and VelaSmooth are devices that combine a variety of technologies to tighten the skin and minimize the appearance of cellulite. Heat penetrates the fat cells beneath the skin’s surface to reduce them, while mechanical massage creates a smoothing effect. Multiple treatment sessions will produce the best body skin tightening results.

Laser and skin treatments provide a bevy of benefits to our patients as we tailor these procedures to their unique needs. If you would like more information about any of these services, contact The Maas Clinic today at 415-567-7000.
