Restore and rejuvenate your appearance. Facial Rejuvenation (non-surgical) is one of the most popular and requested services thanks to break through non-invasive laser and light technology. Unlike medical spas or skin care clinics, FCLA is directed by highly experienced board certified plastic surgeons from Stanford University plastic surgery department who use non-ablative procedures that work. *All mages in this section are not actual patients and do not represent actual results
Aging, environmental conditions, dry skin, and acne all ravage the face and its natural beauty. Accelafuze renews and rejuvenates your face's skin at a cellular level by targeting all four adverse conditions through an advanced formula of peptides, amino acids, vitamins, and nutrients. The Accelafuze infusion enhances your skin cells and increases the production of collagen and elastin, which are crucial in keeping your skin supple, smooth, and youthful. BACK
Accelawave, used in conjunction with Accelafuze treatments, is a non-invasive, totally safe Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Therapy for: • Permanent hair reduction • Skin rejuvenation • Pigmentation • Vascular lesions • Acne • Age or liver spots
Because Accelawave uses light pulses, rather than lasers, the procedure has all the effectiveness of laser surgery or dermabrasion without any of the scarring or recovery time. BACK
ACNE AND ACNE SCARRING
Unfortunately, most people suffer from acne at one time or another. Caused by excessive oil secretion, facial follicles become blocked with dead skin cells and provide a haven for bacteria.
Age is not a factor in treating acne - patients young and old can benefit from just the right treatment. FCLA provides a panoply of treatments to reduce breakouts while leaving skin fresh and cool. There is no one way to fight acne, so we tailor a combination of therapies for the unique circumstances of each patient including IPL Light, N-lite laser, Accelafuze treatments, and home care regimens.
Botox® has been safely used for more than 17 years to treat a wide array of medical conditions. Botox® relaxes muscles by blocking the release of a chemical neurotransmitter that causes the muscles to contract. The effects are localized and do not affect your ability to smile, laugh, or otherwise show expression. The entire procedure takes about 15 minutes and there is no downtime afterward. Within days after the treatment, you will see dramatic improvements in your appearance.
IPL (intense pulsed light) restores sun-damaged skin and removes brown spots, facial veins, age spots, freckles, and uneven skin tones. It can also decrease unwanted facial hair. Because IPL uses light rather than lasers or abrasion, it leaves the skin intact and undamaged. IPL also enhances the skin's collagen framework, improving skin smoothness and youthfulness.
A pulse emits a light that passes easily through the upper layers of your skin, but is absorbed by the unwanted red and brown pigment underneath, reducing or eliminating the pigmented spots. Brown spots, pigments, red veins, spider veins, and rosacea become considerably less noticeable or disappear completely within just a few treatments. In a personalized consultation and analysis of your skin, FCLA specialists determine whether IPL is an appropriate treatment. IPL typically requires 4-6 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart. BACK
Sun damage, heredity, and lifestyle all produce visible signs of aging. You first begin to notice aging when your face loses its firmness, develops wrinkles, and loses volume in places. Non-surgical fillers reverse this aging by softening or illuminating facial creases, enhancing shallow contours, and restoring lips and other features to a more natural and more sensuous look.
Juvederm® is a gel that includes natural, non-allergenic hyaluronic acid to replace your skin's hyaluronic acid that aging has depleted. The Juvederm® gel is injected just below your skin to lift and add volume to your skin, thus smoothing out wrinkles. It is naturally absorbed into the body in six to nine months.
There is minimal discomfort and normal activities may be resumed immediately. Because it is a fully natural gel, Juvederm® procedures are safe, effective, and FDA approved. BACK
LASER HAIR REMOVAL
Laser hair removal selectively heats the dark follicle pigments in areas of unwanted hair and causes the follicles to stop producing new hairs, effectively and permanently removing unwanted hair while leaving your skin and lighter-pigmented hair untouched. While laser hair removal is the most effective treatment to remove unwanted hair on any part of the body, it does not work on all skin and hair types. An FCLA consultation and skin analysis will determine the best hair removal therapy for you.
LASER SKIN REJUVENATION FCLA offers several FDA-approved lasers and intense pulsed light (IPL) therapies that effectively tighten and smooth skin without incisions, wounds, or lengthy recovery time.
Because laser and light therapies require little or no recovery time, most patients find it easier, more convenient, and far more comfortable to undergo four or five laser or light treatments over a few months rather than a single deep, intrusive procedure requiring two to three weeks of recovery and discomfort.
Specialists at FCLA will analyze your skin and facial health and advise you on the best options suitable to your unique medical and cosmetic needs. BACK
LATISSE® stimulates your lashes to grow longer, fuller, and darker. A simple, once-a-day treatment you apply topically to the base of your upper eyelashes, you will see results in as few as eight weeks with full results after twelve to sixteen weeks. LATISSE® is an FDA-approved, clinically-proven prescription drug. FCLA physicians can help you determine if LATISSE® is the right solution for you and guide you through the entire treatment process.

FCLA boasts the first non-damaging wrinkle removal laser for rejuvenation skin and correcting acne or vascular lesions. By precisely targeting the mid-dermis with light energy - but without causing any damage to the tissue - the low grade inflammation created by the light 'tricks' the body into producing new collagen which aging has depleted from your skin. The advanced, precise targeting of this light energy treats an astonishing array of skin conditions: acne, acne scars, stretch marks, static wrinkles, birthmarks, rosacea, spider veins, and much more. In comparison to other resurfacing or injection treatments, the procedure is surprisingly comfortable both during and after treatment. Most patients describe the sensation as no more than a bit of warmth and a tingling on their face.
PROFECT® Skin Analysis is an ultraviolet imaging system that helps our specialists to personalize and target individual skin treatment plans best for you by allowing us to see 'under' your skin.
PROFECT® shows variations in pigmentation and vascular conditions that are invisible to the naked eye. It can thus help us to prevent further damage and improve the texture and health of your skin, layer by layer. With the PROFECT® Skin Analysis, our specialists are able to detect, quantify, and diagnose your skin condition. By seeing 'under' your skin, our physicians can craft effective treatments tailored specifically for your unique situation, such as dehydration, sun damage, discoloration, pigmentation, wrinkles, melasma, acne, and other conditions.

Stem Cell Facial Sculpting offers a non-surgical, natural alternative to rejuvenation techniques such as facelifts and fillers to restore a more youthful, energetic appearance.
