Your best features can’t shine their brightest if they’re obscured by aged, dull, or blemished skin. Though topical creams are often enough to maintain healthy skin, they can’t target the deeper issues caused by UV damage, collagen loss, chronic acne, and other conditions. To smooth away wrinkles and scars, improve overall skin tightness, and fade discoloration, you’ll need to consider a medical-grade skincare procedure. At her clinic in Lake Country, Wisconsin, Dr. Maida Parkins and her team of experts provide a number of different options for achieving a radiant, youthful glow.

Dermaplaning is a manual exfoliation system that removes built-up dead skin cells and debris without causing irritation or discomfort. Dermaplaning also gently scrapes away facial hair, revealing a completely smooth surface that’s perfect for makeup application. This procedure, which doesn’t require any downtime, is a great way to prepare for big events.
During dermaplaning, a very thin sterile blade is lightly scraped across the skin (without cutting or harming the skin in any way). This process shaves away the stratum corneum (is the outermost layer of the epidermis comprised of dead skin cells) and vellus hair (“peach fuzz”). As it creates a more even surface, dermaplaning also unclogs pores and stimulates the production of skin-firming collagen.
Microneedling improves collagen levels, minimizes scars and blemishes, and tightens the skin—all without the use of harsh chemicals. We offer a state-of-the-art microneedling technique through SkinPen, the first FDA-cleared microneedling device. We understand successful microneedling requires a quality post-treatment protocol. We’ve taken it the next level by also offering patients SkinFuse, the at-home follow-up treatment offer by SkinPen. This procedure is perfect for patients who wish to avoid conventional peels because they have sensitive skin or multiple allergies. In fact, microneedling is so safe that even pregnant women can use this treatment.
Microneedling works by creating very tiny punctures in the skin. Like acupuncture, this process doesn’t hurt; most patients describe feeling only a light prickling sensation during treatment. Local anesthetic is generally used to further eliminate any risk of discomfort.
By creating numerous micro-perforations, microneedling activates the body’s healing response: The skin’s rate of cellular turnover increases, causing aged and damaged cells to naturally flake off. At the same time, collagen and elastin are delivered to the epidermis to aid in the creation of new, healthy skin cells. For this reason, microneedling is sometimes referred to as “collagen induction therapy.”
Microneedling is an excellent low-maintenance treatment for acne scars, diffuse fine lines, loose skin, and patches of rough or leathery-looking skin.
The Hydrafacial is an advanced multi-step treatment designed to address complex skin concerns, such as dullness, signs of UV damage, chronic acne, enlarged pores, textural issues, and hyperpigmentation. The Hydrafacial system can be adjusted to work optimally on a variety of skin types, including dry skin, oily skin, aging skin, and combination skin. This procedure is therefore ideal for patients who have specialized skincare needs.
Each Hydrafacial begins with exfoliation, which is conducted with mild organic acids and the Hydrafacial’s patented vortex extraction device. First, an acidic solution dissolves and loosens dead skin cells, excess oil, and other debris, then the vortex extraction device vacuums away these pore-clogging materials. To protect the skin from dryness and irritation and restore vital nutrients, nourishing antioxidant-rich serums are infused deep into the epidermis immediately following exfoliation. Other organic agents, like honey, are used to further hydrate the skin and naturally fight acne-causing bacteria. The entire Hydrafacial process takes just 25-30 minutes due to the efficiency of the extraction device.
Patients can choose whether they want to use a very mild peel for exfoliation or a stronger peel. Stronger peels are an effective option for tackling stubborn blemishes (like age spots, deep wrinkles, and broken blood vessels), but they may cause redness and require brief downtime. Mild peels create more subtle results, but they allow patients to quickly resume all of their normal activities.
When you visit us for a consultation, our team of trained specialists will listen attentively to your concerns and recommend the skincare procedure that’s right for you.
Medical skincare, alone or in combination with other procedures, can dramatically rejuvenate your appearance. Eliminating the superficial signs of aging, like age spots and rough patches, can enhance the results of facelift surgery or injectable treatments like BOTOX® and dermal fillers.
