ViPeel Testimonial:  “After turning 30, my skin took a horrible turn for the worse.  All of a sudden I began breaking out along my jawline and under my chin.  The painful bumps would leave scars after they went away.  I tried facials, at home masks, and several home remedies.  Nothing worked.  I got depressed and began my search for something to fix my skin.  I tried the ViPeel because I had tried everything else already.  I was a little afraid because of the price but after 5 days of getting the peel I could see the most beautiful skin, not only on places where I had scarring and discoloration but everywhere!  People began complimenting on my skin all the time.  I had a glow and even my husband was amazed!  The ViPeel is truly all that it claims to be and more!”  M.A. Dover, DE.

Skin Care For Men  We treat many conditions that concern men with tailored treatments designed for a Man’s needs, such as razor burns, ingrown hairs, rosacea and acne.

Laser Skin Tightening  One of our most popular treatments is our Face and Neck Skin Tightening with our Skin Tyte Intense Infrared Light Therapy. All laser skin tightening devices, whether it be Thermage, Fraxel, or other light based therapies, effectively tighten loose skin by targeting and heating collagen within the skin. Collagen is the most predominant protein in our skin that provides firmness and taughtness. The structure of collagen is in the shape of a helix, or a spring. When it is stimulated by heat, such as with the Sciton Skin Tyte, the collagen winds tighter. This causes a noticeable tightness in loose skin immediately!  This tightness does subside over the next few days to week, however, it will be improved over baseline. Current studies recommend a series of three Skin Tightening procedures scheduled one to two weeks apart for best results. After each session, the skin will be visible tighter, each time gaining improvement over the last treatment. In addition, this stimulation of collagen continues over the next six months as the stimulate fibroblasts continue to produce new collagen. This new collagen is all yours and will be present for the next ten years!

Skin Tag Removal Are you ready to lose those annoying skin tags around your neck, underarms or groin? Cutaneous tags are very common skin growths. They usually occur after midlife and are usually harmless and non-cancerous (benign). The tag sticks out of the skin, and may have a short, narrow stalk connecting it to the surface of the skin. Dr. Parsons can remove your skin tags easily and quickly, including around the eyes. There is usually no regrowth or scar formation after cutaneous tags are removed, although new growths may appear elsewhere on the body.

Ruby Points– these little red dots are called cherry angiomas. They are made up of a cluster of tiny capillaries at the surface of the skin, and can range in color from bright red to purple. As they grow larger, they tend to expand in thickness, and may take on the raised and rounded shape of a dome and may be located on any part of the body. Everyone seems to develop a few, but the number is genetically determined. They usually appear in early adulthood; but the onslaught in those genetically inclined tends to increase as one approaches their40s. Red dots considered to be painless and harmless. Removal is easy by Vascu-Lyse. They heal beautifully after treatment, and if properly treated they will not.

Milia often referred to as (milk spots), are keratin-filled cysts that can appear just under the epidermis. They are common in people of all ages, they appear mostly on the face. They are easily removed by Vascu-Lyse in one session.

Sebaceous Hyperplasia is a common benign condition of sebaceous glands in adults of middle age or older. Lesions can be single or multiple and manifest as yellowish, soft, small papules on the face (particularly nose, cheeks, and forehead). Sebaceous hyperplasia occasionally also occurs on the chest, areola, mouth, foreskin.

Seborrheic Keratosis – are flesh-colored, brown, or black growths that can appear anywhere on the skin. Theses harmless growths are very common in middle-aged and older people.
Seborrheic keratosis are round or oval and very in size. They appear to be stuck on the skin and often have a waxy or scaly surface. They are normally painless, and require no treatment. But often are removed for cosmetic reasons.


Telangiectasia – (broken capillaries) most commonly found on the cheeks and nose area, these appear as small red/pink threads under the skins surface. Broken capillaries occur when the capillary walls narrow and widen too quickly causing the muscles in the walls to tear. This in turn allows the blood to seep out resulting in broken capillaries.

Spider Angioma is a combination of a ruby point and telangiectasia. They are often found on the face, especially around the eyes and nose. Causes are very similar to telangiectasia. Dehydrated, dry and sensitive skins often have thin skin that provides less protection and therefore, these skin types are the most commonly affected. Common causes: Hot conditions, Wind blowing on face, sunburns, pressure (squeezing spots from glasses).

Other Skin Growths  Another kind of superficial benign skin growth that many people acquire is the seborrheric keratosis. This kind of lesion is a thickened, rough, usually dark patch of skin. They are most commonly located on the chest, abdomen and back. Seborreic keratoses are more stubborn than skin tags and can take more than one treatment to remove.

Cholesterol Deposits on Eyelids – Xanthelasmas are flat, yellow-white fat deposits under the skin on or around your eyelids. They usually occur in older people and are mostly harmless. In some people, however, they can indicate high cholesterol or triglyceride levels.  Dr. Parsons can removed this bumps without surgery in 1 or 2 sessions.
