Aging brings with it many gifts, including experience, wisdom and perspective. Unfortunately, it also delivers wrinkles, fine lines, creases and folds.
While many patients gravitate toward surgical procedures to help reverse the ill effects of the aging process, there are those that prefer a more non-invasive approach.
Collagen is a protein found naturally in the human body that is responsible for the skin’s resilience, hydration, and youthful vibrancy.
Regardless of your age, and whether you are a man or a woman, healthy, glowing skin that is radiant, youthful and resilient is a primary aesthetic goal.
IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light, a form of facial rejuvenation that relies on a high intensity broad spectrum lamp emitting both visible and infrared wavelengths.
A chemical peel works by using a special formula to exfoliate your outermost layer of damaged skin, revealing a more youthful, attractive complexion underneath.
With so many skincare treatments on the market today, it can be difficult to discern exactly which one will best suit your needs and solve your complexion problems.
If you are like most people who struggle with unwanted body hair, you may have tried every solution under the sun, including electrolysis, tweezing, shaving, waxing, creams and serum.
As our largest organ, the skin works overtime to protect us from pathogens, regulate our temperature and shield us from injury.
While surgical procedures such as a tummy tuck and thigh lift can help tone and slim the torso, there are those patients that desire a less invasive approach with reduced discomfort and downtime.
Your quality of life is enhanced when you look and feel at your best. You may be one of the countless people who spends time working out, eats a healthy diet, but is still living with stubborn pockets of fat that just won’t budge.
Glowing skin is a universal sign of youth and vitality. As you go through your life, environmental factors such as the sun’s harmful UV rays and lifestyle can wreak havoc on your skin.
An elegant, defined facial profile is a universally recognized symbol of beauty. Unfortunately, the effects of aging lead to the loss of youthful definition at the jawline.
Collagen is one of the building blocks of your skin. This important molecule gives your skin youthful strength, firmness, and volume.
Your surgery or skin care treatments can absolutely be combined. Certain procedures naturally go together, like skin tightening and resurfacing treatments. Dr. Gabriel will discuss your individual goals and create a personalized treatment plan to address your aesthetic concerns. Of course, treatments will only be combined when necessary. We do not use sales pressure but focus on achieving exceptional results for our patients.
In some cases, treatments can be performed at the same time, but other times you may need a short waiting period in between procedures. You may need to wait before undergoing additional treatments, depending upon your personal goals and the procedures needed. Some of the most dramatic improvements can be achieved by several treatments, such as a chemical peel performed each month for a few months.
Preparation for your treatment may be required, but most non-surgical medspa procedures may need little to no preparation. At our medical spa in Vancouver, WA, Dr. Gabriel gives special attention to every patient, and he will let you know if there are any preparations to perform at home prior to your procedure.
You will be able to drive yourself home from our practice after a non-surgical procedure such as BOTOX, laser skin tightening, IPL photo rejuvenation, injectable treatments, a chemical peel or other rejuvenating, non-surgical treatment. Your treatment will be performed in our luxury private clinic, and we offer a patient-focused approach that makes the entire experience positive and comfortable.
Each procedure performed at our Portland medspa is different, and some have aftercare instructions, while others allow you to simply go about your day as normal, such as treatment with injectable fillers. Dr. Gabriel will provide a detailed explanation if needed about aftercare, and he is available for questions if you have any. Non-surgical facial treatments can be enhanced with a custom skincare routine to achieve beautiful results, and typically require the consistent use of sunscreen.
Dr. Gabriel will discuss the expected outcome and longevity of results during your initial consultation so you know exactly what to expect. Non-surgical aesthetic treatments can produce remarkable results when delivered with attention, skill, and experience.
The right combination of surgical and non-surgical medspa treatments can take years off your appearance, smooth your skin, and sculpt your body. Adherence to your aftercare routine will impact your results, and your commitment to a healthy diet and exercise routine will preserve your youthful look and help you age gracefully.
A med spa, or medical spa combines the relaxing treatments you might experience in a spa-like setting with advanced aesthetic treatments.

Our medspa offers medical grade aesthetic procedures for anti-aging, along with face and body enhancements.

We listen, we care, and we are known for our excellent results in cosmetic enhancements for face or body, including body sculpting.
Many patients wonder what their options are when it comes to anti-aging or a cosmetic enhancement. What treatments will be most effective in restoring that youthful, fresh glow, or enhancing your features? Depending on your goals, there are many surgical and non-surgical procedures to reduce the adverse effects of aging. Each procedure can vary in the degree of invasiveness and recovery time. Surgical procedures such as a facelift, tummy tuck or mommy makeover will require more time for recovery than non-surgical options such as BOTOX, injections with dermal fillers or a chemical peel.
