Skin health is skin beauty.
Types of Facials
To us, skin health and skin beauty are interchangeable. And health isn’t something we take lightly. Proper skin treatment includes a careful, thorough evaluation of treatment options, patient skin care goals, and overall patient health. It’s our goal to find the best skin regimen for our patients now and in the future. Find out about our facials and more here.
Microneedling is a procedure that uses tiny, sterile needles to puncture the skin. This then helps produce collagen and results in smoother, firmer, and more toned skin. Your technician cleans your face thoroughly and applies lidocaine cream (a local anesthetic) to the treatment area. They then use a device to “aerate” your skin. This “aeration” device uses needles to create micro-wounds, activating your skin’s natural response to injury—which in turn creates collagen—and allowing serums to penetrate more deeply into the skin.
The Botox facial uses an AQUAGOLD tool to deliver Botox into the upper layers of the skin—not the muscle. The result is smooth skin, diminished pores, and collagen stimulation. It can also be customized with other products to help hydrate your skin. The effect of this treatment begins approximately 10 days after treatment and lasts up to 4 months. Many use this facial in combination with their routine Botox treatments to help diminish things like frown lines.
Dermaplaning is an extremely effective exfoliating procedure. It uses a feather blade or scalpel to remove both dead skin and peach fuzz on the face. Dermaplaning can help with things like dullness, wrinkles, breakouts. It can also help with things like better product absorption, smoother skin texture, and makeup application.
Oxygen Lift Facial
This facial treatment is designed to nourish your skin and promote collagen production. It does this by applying highly concentrated plant stem cells, vitamins and minerals, botanical enzymes, and oxygen to your face. This combination boosts your skin’s luminosity, hydration, and oxygen for a noticeable, youthful glow.
Fire & Ice Facial
This safe and quick facial peel leaves the skin feeling fresh, glowy, and youthful. It uses two different masks to resurface and rejuvenate the skin. Additionally, it reduces fine lines and wrinkles, reduces hyperpigmentation, and promotes cell renewal. Treatments usually last about 50 minutes, and there’s no downtime or peeling!
OBAGI Blue Peel
This superior facial peel achieves advanced skin resurfacing. It does this by using slow-acting TCA (trichloroacetic acid) to remove dead skin cells and stimulate the production of new ones. This allows the skin to fully regenerate and tighten. It’s often used to treat blemish-prone skin, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and sun damage. The OBAGI Blue Peel can restore both the facial area and non-facial areas.
AQUAGOLD is a revolutionary microneedling device. It contains 24K gold-plated, surgical-grade microneedles, each thinner than a human hair. This device delivers products such as platelet-rich plasma (PRP), dermal fillers, muscle relaxants, retinol, and antioxidants directly into the skin. AQUAGOLD is the perfect solution for the treatment of sensitive areas. Especially around the mouth, eyes, forehead, neck, and hands.
The Cryofacial uses a controlled beam of vaporized liquid nitrogen to freeze and exfoliate skin found on the face, scalp, and neck area. This process helps tighten pores, soothe inflammation, and fill in wrinkles. It also helps encourage lymphatic drainage.
Diamond microdermabrasion uses a diamond-tipped wand to gently remove dead skin cells from the face. It also mildly cleanses and exfoliates the skin. It promotes the growth of collagen and new skin cells and helps to smooth and polish skin texture. It also reduces the appearance of wrinkles, acne scars, and sun damage.
Extractions typically involve a few steps: Cleansing the skin and softening the skin (using steam and/or warm towels). Then, clearing clogged or impacted pores (manually or with tools). Finally, finishing with a treatment to soothe and disinfect the skin.
The platelet-rich plasma (PRP) facial, commonly referred to as the vampire facial, uses platelets from your blood to help tighten, smooth, and improve your skin tone. Your doctor first draws your blood, spins the blood to separate the platelets, and then injects the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) into your skin. It injects it via microneedling—a method where sterile needles create micro-holes in your skin. PRP has unique growth factors that naturally activate the production of collagen and elastin, two of the skin’s primary building blocks. Discomfort level is typically mild to moderate, depending on the depth of the microneedling.

The HydraFacial is a red-carpet facial treatment that gently cleanses and hydrates the skin.

The process also assists with lymphatic drainage, which can help accelerate healing, reduce puffiness and redness, and reduce scar tissue.
What Our Patients Are Saying
Michael Flynn with Melamed Weight and Wellness saved my life. I have tried every diet possible but it wasn’t until I met Michael Flynn, a Lipidologist and Nutritional Specialist, that my life changed. So far, I’ve lost 65 pounds and counting. Michael has gotten me off my medications including Coumadin. My new Doctor has marveled at the progress I’ve made and continue to make. I have my life back and feel fabulous because of Michael Flynn.
Dr. Melamed, and Michael Flynn have been truly outstanding. I started seeing Michael about 3 months ago and in that time I have had a complete healthy transformation which I really did not think could be possible. The benefits I have achieved by following a very easy nutritional plan was amazing. I have worked out my entire life excessively and have never achieved the results like I have in the last few months. Great staff and one of the best life changing decisions I have ever made.
If you have visited your primary care doctor for things like feeling sluggish and not being able to lose weight, even though you are mindful of your diet and exercise, and have left the appointment frustrated with no new information in-hand, consider a consultation to discuss your concerns with Dr. Melamed.
For the first time, a doctor took the time to listen and see the full picture. Dr. Melamed’s approach is informative, supportive and solution-driven and helped me understand the connection between energy levels and diet and more. Whether you need a jump start to get back on track to feeling like yourself or a better understanding of how your current diet and routine might be sabotaging your efforts, Dr. Melamed is genuinely working with you to get you where you want to be.
Wonderful experience! I had filler put into my cheek bones and it looks great! I get so many compliments. She really took the time to talk to me about what I wanted and make it look so good. I highly recommend to anyone to go see her. Staff very nice and helpful too.
This place is top notch!! I worked with Jan and before anything she sat down, we had a whole conversation explaining everything and asking me about my concerns. She definitely took her time & wasn’t in a rush. Very professional great and experienced. The place is very clean and the medical atmosphere in which these things should be done in. Don’t go anywhere else. I will definitely be back for more.
