Dr. Gale Lawrence

Therapeutic SkinCare

It takes a skilled, experienced physician to help you decide the best possible treatment for your skin condition. Dr. Lawrence will help you sort through your many options to determine what works best for you. There are many factors to consider when choosing who to trust these critically important treatments. Dr Lawrence offers a wide range of effective, affordable, and most important, physician-administered therapies based on your skin condition and budget.

Therapeutic Skin Care Treatments Include:

Mega Peel Microdermabrasion

This safe alternative to invasive cosmetic procedures evenly exfoliates the superficial epidermis. If your skin has lost its glow, removal of this dead, lifeless skin unearths the inner layer of vibrant glowing skin. A more luminous radiant complexion is revealed, and other problem skin conditions, including acne, blackheads, superficial age spots, hyper-pigmentation, fine lines, and post acne scarring will be corrected or greatly improved. Dr. Lawrence includes a very strong gel-- glycolic acid-- that greatly enhances the microdermabrasion procedure. This is availably only through your physician.

Mega Peel treatments allow you to improve your skin while eliminating the downtime associated with deeper chemical and laser peels. These relaxing treatments act as an anti-inflammatory antioxidant and help to start rebuilding collagen stores in the skin. They also allow for increased elasticity and tightness in the skin. Acne scars will be less obvious. Age spots, sunspots, pore size, and fine lines are often diminished, and many patients report softer, smoother, younger-looking skin with a more even texture and color. Treatments cost $150.

Chemical Peels

Dr. Lawrence offers safe, effective peels with immediate results. You will experience tighter, glowing, more beautiful skin. All procedures are done by Dr. Lawrence herself. Chemical peels are customized for individual patient care and start at $110.00.
Precision Peel
Unlike any other peel on the market, the highly effective, non-irritating Precision Peel combines microdermabrasion, Glycolic acid, resorcinol, and the most penetrating form of Retinyl Enzyme available. This liquid form of Vitamin A is diffused through the skin where it converts to tretinoic acid below the surface of the skin, without the irritating side effects of many retinol products. Precision Peel can be used on all skin types, and is especially effective for oily and acne skin. The results are amazing. Dr. Lawrence will customize these and other products, including collagen, to maximize your benefits.

Glycolic Peel
This rejuvenating peel takes less than one half hour and leaves your skin with a fresh, healthy glow. Glycolic acid has been used for many years to obtain improvement in skin texture, sun-damage, blackheads, whiteheads, dark spots, and fine wrinkles.

Salicylic Peel
This peel is an excellent choice for oily/acne skin. This beta hydroxy acid removes dead cells thereby allowing pores to be cleansed and unclogged. Salicylic acid is highly active and therapeutic for the most troubled skin.

Vi Peel
The Vi Peel is specifically designed to reverse the signs of aging and sun damage while combining a synergistic blend of gentle yet powerful ingredients. This peel is suitable for all skin types. It will improve the tone, texture, and clarity of the skin while reducing or eliminating age spots, freckles and hyper- pigmentation. The Vi Peel softens lines and wrinkles, stimulates the production of collagen and elastin for firmer skin, and is highly effective in clearing acne. The Peel is virtually painless and takes only 20 minutes. There is minimal or no down time. Enjoy younger, more beautiful skin in about one week.

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL): Photofacial

Dark spots caused by the sun and aging can now be removed in the office using pulsed light technology. Hyper-pigmentation by pregnancy or sun exposure can also be lightened. Combinations of IPL and other products that only Physicians can buy and apply, can be corrective for a variety of skin problems. Prices depend on the areas treated and start at $250.00.

Small red vessels on the face respond to this treatment as well. If you have brown discolorations or broken blood vessels that bother you, this is the treatment of choice. Intense pulsed light treatments have also been proven to reduce acne scaring and many other skin imperfections.

Blue Light Acne Treatment and IPL Acne Treatment:

Acne lesions are caused by hormonal imbalances, excess sebum production, follicular hyper-keratinization, and the formation of proprionibacterium (P-acne) in the follicular canal. Specific light spectrums can now be used to destroy proprionbacterium in the sebaceous gland. In many cases the destruction of P-acnes produces clearance of acne lesions.

Liquid Nitrogen

Dr. Lawrence uses liquid nitrogen to correct pre-cancerous lesions and smooth the skin. This procedure is exclusive to Physicians. Starts at $100

Dermal Fillers

There are a variety of choices for dermal fillers including, Juvederm, Radiesse and Hyaluronic acid, and many techniques for injecting each one. Dr. Lawrence is one of the busiest injectors of dermal fillers in Southern California and will help you decide which filler will provide the best results. All treatments are customized to insure a safe, beautiful and natural result. Prices are competitive depending on the product you choose, starting at $450.00 per syringe to $750.00 per syringe.
