Comprehensive skin and laser treatment options are available at the Sacramento medical spa of Dr. Shahriah Mabourakh. Options include mild micropeels to exfoliate the skin, injectable products that smooth wrinkles, and laser therapy which serves a variety of purposes. We commonly treat signs of aging (such as lines and wrinkles), signs of sun damage, areas of discoloration, acne scarring, enlarged pores, and unwanted hair and veins. For more information about what we offer, contact our medical spa, located in Roseville, today.
3DSkin Rejuvenation from Cutera uses a three-tiered approach to address multiple signs of aging, instead of just one or two. The LimeLight Facial and Photo Genesis portions of the treatment address problems at the skin’s surface (e.g., redness, freckles, sun damage, and uneven complexion). The Laser Genesis works on the deeper layers of the skin; it softens fine lines and wrinkles, shrinks pores, and decreases or eliminates redness. The platform also stimulates the creation of new collagen. The Titan heats the tissue in the deepest layers of the skin, using infrared light. Cutera AcuTip 500T treats small facial veins, sun spots, and cherry angiomas through the delivery of light energy. The light heats up the blood within the veins, causing it to coagulate and eventually dissolve to be reabsorbed by the body. For sun spot removal, the pigmented cells absorb the visible light of the laser. Laser hair removal is available with the Cutera CoolGlide laser platform. The CoolGlide system delivers pulses of light, which are absorbed by the pigment in the hair, and disable the hair follicles to stop growth. CoolGlide is frequently employed to remove hair from the arms, legs, underarms, back, and even face. It works safely and effectively on all skin types, including tanned skin. We also use the ProWave laser hair removal system which has yielded successful results. The number of recommended laser hair removal treatment sessions will vary depending on the patient, treatment area, and type of hair, but typically vary from three to six. Photo Genesis improves the tone, texture, and color of the skin on your face, chest, arms, and hands. It clears up signs of sun damage, age spots, and redness of the skin through a pulsed light system. Laser Genesis treats wrinkles, redness, large pores, and uneven texture while producing new collagen. The system gently heats the upper dermis (which stimulates collagen production) and in dilated capillaries to reduce redness. To treat veins on the face and body, we use the CoolGlide system. It can treat a variety of veins, including tiny spider veins and deep blue reticular veins, on patients with dark, light, or tanned skin. The system delivers pulses of light energy which cause the blood in the vein to coagulate and eventually be reabsorbed by the body. Blood flow is redirected to deeper veins below the skin’s surface.
We use BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® at our practice. BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® are injected into the facial muscles that cause lines and wrinkles. The injections temporarily immobilize the muscles, which causes the wrinkles and lines to flatten out. The result is a more youthful-looking and rested look. BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® can be used on the forehead, crow’s feet, and between the eyebrows, and results typically last up to six months.
We have a full time, in-house esthetician who is highly trained and skilled. She is dialed into the treatments and products, including microdermabrasion, advanced chemical peels, and skin care products, that best accomplish the collective goals of our clientele. Her training and experience has offered her the opportunity to design specialized chemical peels based on proven results with her patients. Some of the services she offers include: Facials

Dermal fillers add volume to areas of the face which have lost fullness because of aging. Dermal fillers are most frequently used to treat wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from the nose to the corners of the mouth. Some dermal fillers are composed of hyaluronic acid, which is a hydrating substance found naturally in the body. We use Restylane®, Perlane®, JUVÉDERM™, Radiesse®, and Prevelle® at our practice. Treatment with dermal fillers is typically pain-free and should be repeated every few months to maintain optimal results.
Microdermabrasion is a popular treatment to rejuvenate the facial skin. The treatment involves the use of a mildly abrasive instrument to slough off the top layer of the skin, which both removes damaged skin cells and encourages new skin growth. Microdermabrasion also causes a production of new collagen, which is helpful in making skin look smoother, tauter, and more youthful. Microdermabrasion is often recommended to treat light acne scars, areas of discoloration and sun damage. We recommend six treatments for optimal results.
Micropeels are a light form of a chemical peel. Micropeels involve the application of a chemical solution which exfoliates the top layer of skin and causes new skin cells to grow in their place. A micropeel improves the skin texture, color, and overall appearance, and may shrink your pores as well. We typically recommend a series of six treatments.
