Cellulite Treatment

Cellulite is an extremely common problem that affects over 75% of women to some degree. Permanent cellulite removal has not been possible until the recent inventions such as Cellfina.

Cellulite is caused by bands of fibrous tissue that pull down the skin as women age. In a normal teenager, there are numerous bands of collagen that hold the skin to the muscle underneath. These bands of tissue contract in some areas over time leading to dents in the skin or cellulite. The greater the contraction of the band, the deeper and worse the cellulite is.



An Uplift, not a Facelift!

In our cosmetic surgery and laser dermatology practice we specialize in non-invasive and minimally invasive cosmetic procedures to enhance one’s looks and youthfulness.  Ultherapy fits beautifully into our mold as one of the best available cosmetic procedures.  It is the only non-surgical, non-invasive procedure that uses ultrasound and the body’s own natural healing process to lift and tighten loose skin on the eyebrow, neck, and under the chin.

The only FDA-cleared procedure to lift skin on these hard-to-treat areas, Ultherapy uses the safe, time-tested energy of ultrasound to stimulate the deep structural support layers of the skin—including those typically addressed in a surgical facelift without disturbing the surface of the skin.

What sets us apart?

CoolSculpting is permanent non-invasive fat removal by freezing the fat. When it comes to fat removal there are no greater experts than Dr and Donna Riopelle. When it comes to results, not all practices are created equal. Here are 3 critical reasons why you should see us first:

First, Dr and Donna Riopelle did many of the original studies for Zeltiq, the maker of Coolsculpting, long before the device was released for general use. They were intimately familiar with how it works right from the start. Why were they selected by Zeltiq to do the studies? Dr Riopelle and Donna Riopelle are foremost experts in fat removal, having done over 3500 liposuction procedures using Smart Lipo, Vaser Lipo, Tickle Lipo and Tumescent Lipo.

They have also treated hundreds of patients with non- invasive fat removal techniques including lipodissolve, Zerona, Vasershape and contour Light, all procedures offered by our practice over the years.

Dr Riopelle’s office was the initial primary research site in developing CoolSculpting. We treated and evaluated over 100 patients for Zeltiq and Dr Riopelle is credited with research in Zeltiq’s published studies ...

What is most exciting and new is our use of your own cells in the form of stem cells, taken from your own fat, to help restore youthfulness. Stem cells from fat are what are called multi-potent, meaning they can be made into to many different types of body tissues ...

Tattoo Removal

Make sure that your tattoo is removed only by a highly experienced laser doctor or doctor supervised nurse using only the world’s best tattoo removal laser. You only have one body and our goal is to help you keep it looking its best. Finding the right doctor for anything cosmetic is always a difficult and important decision. When it comes to removing a tattoo, you should not take the decision lightly either. We want to help you make a well informed decision and give you all the tools you need to get the best results.

When it comes to tattoo removal the first important factor to consider is the quality of the actual laser technology out there. For years the technology has been lacking as certain colors and characteristics of tattoos have made them nearly impossible to get rid of. The great news is that the newest technology has now made the safe quick elimination of your tattoo a potential reality.

In our practice we use the World’s greatest Tattoo Removal Laser, the Picosure Laser by Cynosure. Only the Picosure uses Picosecond technology, energy delivered so fast that tattoos literally melt away. No other laser currently available can come close to matching its ability to take out a tattoo. Other lasers take out only certain colors and require up to 15 to 20 treatments. Even after that many treatments, often half the color can remain. Picosure takes out the tattoo in 5 to 8 treatments average and can treat even the most difficult colors such as blue and green...
