The Spa at Stonegate has the latest products, treatments, techniques, and spa services
All treatments are performed by highly trained, pleasant, and compassionate professionals. A number of these services are listed below. Riddhi Shah, DO, or her team can discuss these in more detail during your consultation.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a natural, purified protein, which in very low doses relaxes the overactive muscles that cause frown lines to form. Treatment is simple and nonsurgical, and smoothes the deep, persistent lines between your brows that developed over time. Typically, BOTOX® treatments last up to four months before retreatment is necessary.
BOTOX® can also be selectively used to minimize “crow’s feet” around the eyes, forehead furrows and occasionally excessive dynamic lines in the lips. Please refer to the BOTOX® section in our photo gallery for examples of BOTOX® treatments.

Juvederm - Injectable fillers can soften facial wrinkles and furrows, enhance the lip line, and slightly raise depressed scars. Various fillers are employed, depending on the application. Most injectable fillers are temporary, lasting from months to up to a year or more. We can also harvest and reinject your own fat (microfat grafting), which has the capability of a more permanent correction.
The providers and staff will be happy to discuss these options and applications with you in detail during your consultation.

Laser Hair Reduction
Unwanted or excess hair can be permanently and painlessly removed or reduced using recently developed technologies of diode lasers and intense pulsed light. Typically, several treatments are needed since each treatment targets the individual hair follicle most effectively in a certain phase of growth. Follow up treatments are typically scheduled four to six weeks later to target other hair follicles that are now in their most sensitive growth phase. Small areas such as the underarms or upper lip can be treated in 10-15 minutes or less, whereas larger areas such as the legs or back may take 30 minutes or longer per session. Our patients have been particularly pleased with their results from laser hair reduction. We utilize two of the most effective technologies available for laser hair reduction, the Lumenis Light Sheer™ ET diode laser system and the Palomar Starlux® intense pulsed light system. Each has its own specialized application, depending on area and skin type for a truly individualized approach for your particular needs.

Laser Skin Rejuvenation
If you’ve ever wished that you could “renew” your complexion to make it smoother and more even-toned, laser skin rejuvenation or laser resurfacing may be a good option for you. Cosmetic laser rejuvenation or resurfacing, also called “laser peel”, is a procedure that smooths the facial skin by using a laser to resurface damaged areas and reduce fine wrinkles. It also assists in the correction of uneven pigmentation. The result is a fresher and smoother complexion. We utilize the most advanced technology available, such as the fractional CO2 laser (DOT Therapy™, Dermal Optical Thermolysis by SmartXide) as well as the traditional Lumenis Ultrapulse™ for more extensive sun damage and deeper wrinkling.

Medical Peels and Facials
Years of environmental exposure and skin conditions such as acne can damage the skin, obscuring clarity, tone, color and texture. Chemical peel procedures can help correct damage associated with chronological aging. These relaxing and effective treatments clear the top layer of skin, opening clogged pores that obstruct the development of healthy, beautiful skin. We offer Lactic acid, Glycolic Acid, and the Jessner peel procedures.
In addition to chemical peel procedures, our patients can enjoy additional relaxing and therapeutic facials under the expert care of our estheticians and skin care specialists. Some patients choose to alternate one of these treatments with microdermabrasions (see next section).
For further information on chemical peels, refer to:
Microdermabrasion is a technique of gently removing the most superficial layer of dead skin cells leaving the skin beneath supple and vibrant. Early microdermabrasion systems used loose particles that could cause environmental and respiratory damage. The DiamondTome™ system was developed to softly exfoliate this outer skin layer with natural diamond chips and then vacuum the dead skin cells away in a sterile and controlled manner, avoiding the dangers of loose abrasives on the skin or in the air.
Microdermabrasion leaves an improved skin texture and promotes the growth of healthy new skin cells. Patients experience softer, smoother and cleaner skin, even after the first treatment. Microdermabrasion with DiamondTome™ is one of the most popular procedures our patients enjoy at the Spa. We look forward to introducing you to this refreshing treatment.
