Skin Care And Rejuvenation
At Robert J. Spies MD, we believe in a comprehensive approach to treating and preventing the various signs of aging. It is recommended for all surgery patients to meet with our Medical Aesthetician, Amanda, who will create a custom skin care plan to maintain and prolong your surgery results. Medical grade skin care products in combination with regular aesthetic treatments will improve overall skin quality and health which will provide you with lasting results. In addition, for those who are seeking to prevent surgery, custom skin care plans are a great alternative to slow down the aging process.

- The 360 Method
- Zo 3 Step-Peel
- Hair Restoration
Microneedling with PRP – Microneedling with PRP (platelet rich plasma) is ideal for those wanting to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, surgical scars, stretch marks, hyperpigmentation, uneven skin texture and pore size. Suitable for all skin types and can be performed on both the face and body.
How does it work?
Microneedling works by creating controlled micro-injuries in the epidermis and dermis. These precise, controlled micro-injuries stimulate your body’s natural ability to heal itself resulting in the formation of new collagen and elastin. Collagen and elastin serve as the foundation for healthy skin and provide you with an overall youthful appearance. When paired with PRP, the skin’s ability to stimulate new collagen and elastin is dramatically increased while the healing time is decreased.
Photofacials – Photofacials are a non-invasive approach to rejuvenating the skin while not harming the surrounding tissue. Intense pulsed light targets and corrects unwanted pigmentation, excessive redness, broken blood vessels and reduces pore size. This treatment is ideal for those wanting to improve overall skin tone and clarity. For best results it is recommended that you do a series of 3-5 treatments spaced four weeks apart.
The 360 Method – Multi-therapy treatments are an excellent way to give you beautiful results in less time. By doing a photofacial and microneedling in the same appointment, you are targeting multiple signs of aging. The 360 Method targets pigmentation, unwanted redness, broken capillaries, fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars and renews the overall health and integrity of your skin. Medical grade skin care is highly recommended in addition to any of our procedures and is a vital component of this treatment. *Evaluation is needed to determine if you are a good candidate for these combined procedures.
Zo 3 Step-Peel – The ZO 3-step peel provides aggressive exfoliation and epidermal stimulation to improve the overall health of your skin. This peel is designed for those wanting to correct hyperpigmentation, melasma, acne, skin texture, pore size, and dullness. Patients must be pre-treated with ZO Medical Products that will be customized according to your specific goals and concerns.
Dermaplaning – Dermaplaning is non-invasive, manual exfoliation technique for all skin types. It gently removes the dead outer most layer of skin and “peach fuzz”. For best results, dermaplaning can be followed by a light refresher peel that will further exfoliate and provide you with optimal hydration. Dermaplaning can also be added to most treatments to boost effectiveness.
Thermoclear – Thermoclear is a great treatment to safely and effectively erase various skin imperfections. This treatment only targets the specific areas of concern leaving the surrounding tissue untouched. Treats milia, age spots, broken blood vessels, cherry angiomas, skin tags, sebaceous hyperplasia, fibromas and more.
Hair Restoration – There are several factors that can contribute hair loss including but not limited to: hereditary and genetic factors, stress, hormonal imbalances, poor nutrition, lack of sleep and medications. PRP is a versatile tool when treating both male and female hair loss. PRP is packed with your body’s own growth factors that boost cell regeneration and new hair growth. If you are experiencing hair loss and want a non-surgical approach or want to prevent thinning hair, PRP may be the right treatment for you! In most cases, 3-4 initial treatments spaced 4 weeks apart are needed. Once the loading phase is complete, annual maintenance may be needed.
Ultherapy – Ultherapy is the only non-invasive, FDA-cleared procedure that lifts and tightens loose on the neck, chin, and brow. It also improves fine lines and wrinkles on the chest. The power of ultrasound goes to work deep below the skin’s surface, reviving and creating new collagen. No surgery is required and no downtime is necessary. Initial results are visible immediately after treatment, but the real results appear over 2-3 months as new collagen builds, gradually lifting, tightening and improving treated areas. While Ultherapy does not completely duplicate the results of a surgical facelift, it’s a great alternative for patients not ready for surgery or for those who want to continue building collagen after a surgical lift.
Medical grade skin care
Erbium laser resurfacing
Erbium laser resurfacing creates deep and precise ablation to the dermis to stimulate cell regeneration and the production of new collagen and elastin. The erbium laser targets and effectively treats deep wrinkles, scars, as well as hyperpigmentation. This treatment is ideal for those having a face-lift and are wanting to target the peri-oral, peri-orbital and forehead lines that are not addressed with surgery.
Laser resurfacing is performed under general anesthesia at our outpatient surgical center. Sometimes, sedation anesthesia can be used if only parts of the face undergo the procedure. It usually takes 7 to 10 for the resurfacing process to be complete. For the next 3 to 4 weeks, your skin will look bright pink or red which will fade over several months. Makeup can be applied to conceal the redness after the first two weeks.
Most patients will see a significant difference in the tone and texture of their skin following this treatment. Although the results will be long lasting, Dr. Spies recommends meeting with our Aesthetician to protect and maintain the results.
