The Cosmetic Surgery Institute believes that the skin must be addressed in a comprehensive manner. Our licensed estheticians and specialty nurses provide custom-made treatment plans to address your specific needs and goals. Our skin care programs include pharmaceutical-grade products and proven medical spa procedures to correct skin damage and aging on multiple levels.
What options are available?
Cosmetic Surgery Institute offers the following skin care options:
- Dermaplaning: This non-abrasive, cutting-edge technique is ideal for smoothing the skin and refining the pores. During treatment, a modified scalpel is used to gently scrape the surface of the skin to remove environmentally damaged skin, dead skin cells, and fine facial hair. Immediately, the skin feels softer to the touch and the skin tone and texture are improved.
- Chemical Peels: Acid peels are effective for exfoliating, regenerating, and stimulating the skin. We offer mild, moderate, and deep chemical peels with a variety of exfoliating agents such as Alpha Hydroxy Acids, TCA, salicylic acid, and retinol. Your esthetician will determine the acid type and strength depending on your skin type and aesthetic goals.
- Oxygen Treatments: oxygen treatments promote circulation in the skin to stimulate cell metabolism and cell growth. An oxygen machine releases pure oxygen infused with vitamins and botanicals directly into the epidermis. This soothing oxygen mist calms redness and hydrates skin cells, resulting in rejuvenated, revitalized skin.
- Particle-Free Dermabrasion: an alternative to microdermabrasion, both the SkinMaster and SkinBella utilize thermal and particle-free ultrasonic vibration to evenly exfoliate and deeply moisturize the skin. With each treatment, 35 – 55% of the outer layer of the skin is removed, clearing away dead skin, excess oil, and cosmetic residue from the pores. This procedure is suitable for multiple skin types, requires no downtime, and provides immediate results.
How do I know which treatment to choose?
The licensed estheticians at Cosmetic Surgery Institute will assess your particular skin condition and then recommend a skin treatment plan tailored to your needs. Each treatment involves a combination of techniques to best address a variety of skin concerns.
What can I do about lines and wrinkles?
In addition to enhancing the skin quality, our skin care treatments will help improve the look of fine lines when used regularly. For deeper facial creases, however, BOTOX® or dermal filler injections may be more appropriate.

Plastic surgeons Dr. Mo Zakhireh and Dr. Clark Taylor balance art and science using innovative procedures with skillful execution. Under their experienced direction, you can become the best version of yourself.
What to Expect
Your skin care treatment will begin with a thorough consultation with one of our health professionals. At this time, your goals, concerns, and skin type will be discussed and evaluated. A specific plan will then be created based on these individual factors.
Most skin care treatments require little to no downtime, with the exception of certain chemical peels. Your skin will look revived and refreshed after just 1 treatment, with ongoing improvements appearing after each subsequent procedure.
Enhancing Your Look
Men and women who want more dramatic anti-aging benefits often choose BOTOX® or dermal fillers in addition to skin care treatments. Individuals who want to tighten and firm the skin may be interested in a facelift.
