SkinPen to the Rescue!

If you’ve spent time in the sun this summer, chances are you’re noticing freckles and discolorations of the skin (hyperpigmentation) you’ve never seen before. These changes in the skin don’t come overnight. They live under the surface and develop more every time we expose our skin to “free radicals” or basically, a harsh environment.  Think of sun spots like an iceberg, for every little bit you see, there is more lurking under the surface. Scary, right? So what do you do?!?!
In a word…microneedling. SkinPen is a quick, effective microneedling device that allows our skincare pros to go after what you see and what you can’t see yet.  Microneedling creates hundreds of thousands of tiny “micro-injuries” in your epidermis which then trigger the skin to start repairing itself.  A truly amazing process!  Read more about it here.
This minimally invasive procedure is quick, comfortable and has undeniable results. Call today to schedule an appointment with Amy or Laura.

Dr. Hammond, founder of Partners in Plastic Surgery, published an article in the June edition of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) summarizing a 6 year clinical study he recently completed on Contour Profile Gel, or CPG, breast implants. These anatomically shaped implants are FDA approved as of July 2012 and will be released into the market. Because of his years of experience with this product Mentor, the producers of these American made implants, recently asked Dr. Hammond to host and teach at the first training session. Doctors from around the country were invited to Grand Rapids June 30th to observe Dr. Hammond during live surgery right here in our PIPS operating room, followed by a weekend of lectures and training. The event was a huge success and we look forward to many more!
