As the most common skin condition in the US, acne can affect patients of all ages, not just teens. Our doctors understand the frustration caused by this condition, especially for adult patients, and are committed to treating each patient’s condition.

Laser Hair Removal

Men and women alike are affected by unwanted hair, which can appear anywhere on the body. Patients of different skin types and color have different needs, and the GentleMAX® laser offers two wavelengths to safely and effectively remove unwanted hair.

Non Surgical Cosmetic Procedures

One of the most common procedures in the U.S. is rejuvenating skin through the injection of safe dermal fillers like Restylane®, JUVÉDERM®, and RADIESSE®. In addition to BOTOX® Cosmetic injections, Dr. Alvarez specializes in these procedures.
