Your looking for the latest most revolutionary technology in skin care…

We’ve got it!

Announcing PicoRejuve

Clear and smooth skin can give you a younger, more attractive appearance. However, blemishes, fine lines, and wrinkles can keep you from this goal.

One of the biggest challenges in improving these concerns is that many of the technologies that address them:

  • Don’t work for all skin types.
  • Aren’t always comfortable.
  • Require some downtime for recovery.

That’s why Procerus Skin Care is excited to offer PicoRejuve and PicoFade laser treatments for our clients with fine lines, freckles, birthmarks, age spots, and other skin concerns. The PicoRejuve and PicoFade treatments utilize the most advanced cosmetic laser platform available to build and restore collagen and elastin and handle difficult pigment. We were the first facility in our area to employ this innovative technology.

The PicoRejuve utilizes fractionated laser pulses on a Picosecond laser platform.  PicoRejuve works differently because it uses extremely targeted and extremely short laser pulses (measured in picoseconds, or trillionths of a second). These pulses can shatter unwanted pigment into much smaller particles than traditional lasers can. PicoRejuve also emits less heat energy than traditional lasers, so less thermal energy transfers to the skin, making the treatments safer for those at risk for post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.

Have you been waiting for Ultherapy to be included in our specials?

Ultherapy, the non-surgical facelift has been a tremendous hit! We have added it to our July specials and are offering $500 off for full face, lower face and neck, full neck or full face and neck when you book with one of our Ultherapists.  Start your lift off right with Ulthera and our highly trained Ultherapists. The training makes a tremendous difference. Our ladies went through an extensive, in depth training with a master trainer. We have already had feedback from clients who had had Ultherapy elsewhere regarding how markedly different their treatment experience was for them here at Procerus. Experience the difference for yourself!

Volbella is a big hit!

Did you know that you reach you peak lip volume at age 14?

Genetics and environmental factors cause a degradation of our youthful collagen and result in a deflated appearance. This is often represented by an elongation of the distance between the nose and the upper lip and troublesome lip lines. You can restore your own soft natural lip volume with subtle enhancement with Volbella.  Dr Kathleen has been working with Volbella for over a year, and has seen that Volbella provides superior longevity in the lips to prior fillers for lips and lip lines. We’ve obseverd Volbella lasting well beyond one year, where most other lip fillers will only last 6 months.

Lip Enhancement is offered as a special for the month of July featuring either Volbella, or Restylane Silk. Whether you need one or two syringes to obtain optimal correction, the $126 savings won’t hurt. Remember, you can combine your brilliant distinctions coupons with Volbella or your Aspire Rewards coupons with Restylane SIlk for greater savings. Volbella comes in a smaller syringe so if you are looking for increased volume, you would likely need two syringes to acheive a noticeable increase.

Pick me up with a little Tox!

The heads and tails favorite at Procerus is Dysport. Our clients prefer Dysport 6:1 over Botox brand botulinum toxin. The most common reason we hear is that they prefer it because it gives them a more natural, less frozen appearance.

We are continuing the 4th of July Special for for the entire month. This is a real throw back price not likely to appear again soon, so catch it while you can.

October Newsletter

Hello October

This month our focus is on a smooth lifted neck and a sculpted jawline.

We at Procerus daily meet the needs of those seeking to improve skin texture, and pigment, with lasers, peels and skincare. We help minimize wrinkles with botulinum toxin and fillers, and address volume loss and lift the midface with lifting fillers and yet we frequently are still asked for a solution for loose skin of the lower face and neck. Beyond the combinations we presently offer we have elected to bring in heavier machinery to meet this daunting task without surgery.

Procerus Skin Care is delighted to introduce Ultherapy technology, utilizing focused high powered ultrasound to tighten and lift loose skin of the face, neck and decolletage. You can select the area that you want to target for example, you can choose to treat the eyebrows for an, eyebrow lift, or you can opt to treat the entire face. Individual results can vary, as they can be affected by the pre-treatment quality of the skin, the volume of the skin, and the extent of laxity or looseness. Schedule your consult today to develop a treatment plan to address your specific concerns. Our Ultherapy device is the newest and most updated version of the Ultherapy treatment devices, it offers greater efficacy and comfort as we would want nothing less for our clientele.  Older versions were less able to maximize comfort during treatment.

KYBELLA® may be right for you if:

Did you know that you reach you peak lip volume at age 14?

Genetics and environmental factors cause a degradation of our youthful collagen and result in a deflated appearance. This is often represented by an elongation of the distance between the nose and the upper lip and troublesome lip lines. You can restore your own soft natural lip volume with subtle enhancement with Volbella. This product is scheduled to launch in mid-October. Dr Kathleen has been working with Volbella in demonstrations since the spring and has a great feel for the product which she says “flows much like Restylane Silk”.  You can add your name to our list of those to be amongst the first to have a Volbella lip enhancement treatment. Simply call our office and ask about reserving your Volbella lip enhancement treatment session.

Sweetest Day

Don’t forget your sweetie on Sweetest Day!  A recent survey of men regarding aesthetic treatments and procedures revealed that men want to age well, and look natural. The study also identified their top three areas of concern:

  1. Hair (hair loss)
  2. Eye area (brow heaviness, dark circles, eye bags)
  3. Chin/Jawline (double chin, neck fat)

If you are considering a gift for that special man, keep in mind that he wants to age well. There are many great gift options. An easy entry option is always a microdermabrasion or a Gentleman’s Facial to help him get started with caring for his skin.  Brotox is becoming much more common place today and if he is not deathly afraid of needles and victim of a heavy brow, he will love the result. One last final mention would be a non-surgical solution for the double chin (and believe me it bothers him). Elimination of the double chin with Kybella could be transformative.

Dr. Gilmore is a Skilled Practitioner and a Great Person – Ann Arbor, MI

I could not be happier or more impressed with the treatment and service at Procerus Skin Care in Ann Arbor Michigan. I had deep pitted acne scarring for 20 years. I had tried everything available to get the scarring to the surface, with no improvement. Dr. Gilmore did a combination of Co2 with PRP, Thread lift, and Bellafill. I already look like a new person, and I expect to see even more improvement over the next few months. I can also speak to her artistry with Botox and Dysport. Oh! and she microneedled my neck to plump, smooth perfection. I wasted a lot of resources on very little improvement over the last 20 years. Dr. Kathleen will only perform procedures that will give you results, and I appreciate that!

September Newsletter

It’s back to school for the children, and in Ann Arbor the college students are returning as fall approaches. The lazy days of summer meander to an abrupt end with the first kick-off after the tailgate parties. As for us here atProcerus Skin Care, we are here for you for all of your upcoming festivities. Here to help you undo some of the summer sun damage and here to offer you many of our Beauty Within Reach Specials which so many of you have enjoyed. Please take a moment to browse our Newsletter. We have our Fall Open House announcement included. We would love to have you join us.

Did you soak up some major rays this summer?
Need a little post summer cleanup? 

For the month of September, we have combined our SRA with Sublative for one fabulous post summer cleanup. Be sure to let your tan die down before having this treatment. Look for this powerful SRA/Sublative combo in this months specials.

Have you tried our SRA?

How does the SRA Skin Rejuvenation treatment work?

The SRA uses focused light and bi-polar radio frequency to restore skin to a more youthful state. Brown spots (pigmented lesions) from sun damage or aging, red blotchiness from spider vessels or rosacea (vascular imperfections), and uneven skin texture will improve over a treatment series. Each SRA treatment will result in gradual lightening and improvement of pigmented and vascular imperfections. Fine lines, pore size and superficial depressed scarring may show noticeable softening after 4-5 treatment sessions.

What is Sublative? How does it work?

The Sublative treatment works its magic by stimulating the collagen in the dermis. Sublative Rejuvenation uses fractional bi-polar radio frequency to break through the skin while keeping its top layer undamaged. This allows more energy to get underneath the exterior of the skin and really make the most of collagen production.

Throughout the course of the treatment, wrinkles, textural abnormalities, sun spots and acne scars are attacked from the inside out. Even after one treatment, there’s a considerable difference even among the deepest of scars, such as ice pick scars. On the flipside, Sublative is also able to treat fine wrinkles and crows feet. To learn more about Sublative, you can read about it on Sheknows.com just copy and paste the following link:  http://www.sheknows.com/

Just imagine these two treatments combined!

Within one to two treatments, this power packed combo, SRA/SUBLATIVE can bring absolute transformation for many skin conditions involving pigment and fine lines and textural abnormalities.  See this package in September Specials. This package also has Regenica Growth Factor as part of the bundle

Mark your calendars.
Our fall Open House will be Tuesday September 20th from 5:30pm – 7:30pm.
Come prepared to enjoy a fun filled evening with your
Beauty Within Reach specialists at Procerus Skin Care!
