OUTCOMES, NOT TREATMENTS

Our Services

We are about OUTCOMES, and not treatments.

What this means is that we do not believe in recommending ONE specific technology to address your concern and trying to get you to commit to a series of that one particular treatment.

You are unique, so why should your treatments not be customized?

Come experience BESPOKE BEAUTY– a new way to do skin at Flora Kim Dermatology.

Here, we listen to what your desired outcome might be: Is it to minimize wrinkles? Even out pigment? Have radiant skin? Lose fat? Stop sweating? Tone muscles?

And, we custom tailor a treatment plan that is the IDEAL COMBINATION of different modalities that work synergistically together to help you reach your desired outcome more efficiently and effectively.

Here is an analogy.  Think about the goal of losing 10 pounds.  If someone gave you a one solution approach, such as run for 30 minutes a day, it is not incorrect.  You could lose 10 pounds by simply running 30 minutes a day.  But think about how much quicker you could reach your goal if it was a multifaceted approach: you also added weight training, disciplined eating habits, staying hydrated, incorporating other cardio workouts and core training, ensuring you are stretching, having good sleep, and managing your stress level?

Attacking one problem with many different modalities is so much more beneficial and just makes sense.  Reaching your desired skin outcome is no exception.

Building on to this concept of approaching skin from many angles, is the importance of doing so at REGULAR INTERVALS.

Healthy skin is not a one time thing; it is a lifelong journey and takes daily commitment.  Who goes to the gym just one time?  We all know that working out has to be a daily or weekly scheduled priority for our body and mind to be and stay healthy.  Your skin is no different.

Furthermore, we believe in the aesthetic philosophy of gradual and conservative, which will lead to more natural long term results and eliminates the risk of doing more harm than good with an overly aggressive intervention.

And last, we are never stagnant in our approach to your skin, as we will constantly adjust your protocol by actively listening and responding to your skin’s progress.

To get started, please make a ONE ON ONE CONSULTATION with me to discuss your personal concerns.  You will be attentively listened to, and through constructive dialogue, I will put together a clear effective long term strategy specifically designed for you.

Come learn how we can be your partner in having healthy radiant skin at any decade.  I look forward to meeting you soon!

Sincerely,

THE BUILDING BLOCKS TO A BEAUTIFUL HEALTHY YOU

Portfolio of Services

Dr. Kim has extensively researched and heavily invested in technologies so that we can offer our patients the combination of cutting edge and gold standard devices in the industry.  What sets us apart are our unique proprietary protocols – a culmination of Dr. Kim’s extensive travels and collaboration with international leading dermatologists – that are specifically formulated to achieve and maintain healthy radiant skin.

SKIN:

Best intervention to forever prevent wrinkles by softening the contraction of the muscles that over time would etch in those stubborn lines.

Juvederm/Voluma/Volbella/Restylane/Lyft/Defyne/Refyne/RevanesseVersa: Immediate gratification to soften deep and fine lines / add volume or lift / correct asymmetry.

Magically dissolves old hyaluronic acid fillers that you no longer love or that were incorrectly injected.

Silhouette Instalift: FDA-approved sutures (not a thread) carefully placed under the skin to create immediate lift.

EMBRACE RF – FaceTite / AccuTite / Morpheus8: Innovative trio technology that addresses both loose skin and excess fat via radiofrequency assisted soft tissue contraction and subdermal adipose remodeling, resulting in clinically proven tightening, lifting, and contouring of the face (eyelids, forehead, nasolabial folds, jowls, jawline), neck, and beyond.  Dr. Kim is honored to have been chosen to be the first dermatologist in the United States to offer AccuTite.

Secret RF / Morpheus8: Not your typical microneedling devices – these are sophisticated medical grade technologies where the end of each microneedle emits radiofrequency. As each microneedle penetrates the skin, it makes direct contact with the deep dermis and delivers radiofrequency exactly where it is needed to generate skin tightening/lifting/thickening beyond what can be achieved with microneedling alone.  Furthermore, the microneedle and radiofrequency synergistically work together to correct texture, minimize fine lines, tighten skin, decrease pore size, and soften appearance of scars.  Done in conjunction with a Hydrafacial and PRFM (see below), it is one of the most amazing proactive and corrective interventions you can do for healthy radiant skin.

TruLift / FaceTite / AccuTite:  Radiofrequency can very effectively tighten and lift the skin by stimulating collagen deep down by heating tissue to the ideal temperature. My unique proprietary TruLift protocol is a noninvasive and painfree treatment (it feels like a relaxing hot stone massage on your skin) perfect for immediate tightening and lift especially right before a special event. It is a must as part of one’s overall lifting strategy, initially done once a month for six months; then every 6 months for maintenance. For those that need more correction and desire one treatment instead of multiple series, FaceTite and AccuTite directly and precisely deliver the radiofrequency energy deep down in the soft tissue for clinically proven 30% tightening visible gradually over the next few months. Both are essential technologies to counteract the downward pull of gravity that causes what we all dread – sagging drooping skin; and can be used to correct and proactively prevent what gravity has done or will eventually do.

We use the power of microcurrents in conjunction with soundwave/ultrasound technology to dramatically increase absorption of active ingredients to more effectively address uneven skin tone, crepey skin, actinic damage, and deliver more radiant healthier skin.

Beneficial for ALL skin types and conditions, Hydrafacial is a patented technology that gently but effectively cleans, exfoliates, peels, extracts, hydrates, and decreases inflammation.  Our PLATINUM Hydrafacial goes above and beyond the Signature Hydrafacial as we start with a full head and neck lymphatic massage to help eliminate congestion and maximize detoxification, incorporate multiple add ons based on your skin’s needs (we love the CTGF booster – connective tissue growth factor), and end with an exclusive red LED mask from Korea to further enhance your results.

Selphyl Science: Commonly known as the vampire facial, we draw your blood, spin it in a special centrifuge to isolate your liquid gold (portion of your blood that has all of the best growth factors, healing properties, and essential signaling molecules) that is soothingly applied to microneedled skin to maximize results. This can be used to benefit not just your face but any area on your body such as your scalp, as part of your hair thickening protocol.

Utilizing the Pico Genesis laser with just the right wavelength, fluence, and pulses, this is a simple but mightily effective approach to healthy skin.  Women in South Korea do Laser Toning once a week or every two weeks as part of their routine skin maintenance.

This unique treatment maximizes the long term beneficial skin changes instigated via laser toning by increasing absorption and penetration of customized active ingredients.  This has replaced the need for facials in Seoul.  Over time, your skin transforms into its most healthy beautiful state with visibly luminous, more even skin tone, while actively combating the damaging effects of environmental pollution and sun damage our skin is subjected to each day.

The most cutting edge laser technology available that is more powerful, more effective, with less down time, less side effects, and less discomfort than the older millisecond and nanosecond lasers.  Settings and protocols are customized to determine what outcome is achieved.  We utilize this technology for maximal skin rejuvenation to improve/correct texture, even out discoloration or pigment issues from sun damage, decrease pore size, stimulate collagen production, and give overall skin radiance/glow/luminosity.

Stimulate and build collagen, soften fine lines, decrease pore size, minimize redness, maximize smoothness and radiance in your skin – all with no downtime.

Excel V:  State-of-the-art laser technology for treating vascular skin conditions such as redness, rosacea, spider veins, poikiloderma, and telangiectasias.

PicoSecond Laser: The only laser of its kind that uses non-thermal, photo-mechanical laser energy to shatter the pigmented cells while protecting the surrounding tissue for most effective elimination of sun spots, lentigos, and freckles.

Enlighten Picosecond Laser: We precisely deliver the right energy/wavelength to each color within a tattoo for successful removal.

MUSCLES:

Non-invasive and painless electromagnetic stimulation of pelvic floor muscles to strengthen and restore neuromuscular control and sheer muscle strength.  28 minutes is equivalent to 11,000 Kegel exercises.  Beneficial for both men and women for genitourinary health.

High intensity focused electromagnetic technology (HIFEM) that induces powerful muscle contractions not achievable through voluntary contractions.  Strengthen, tone, and firm your abdomen and buttock without breaking a sweat.  30 minutes is equivalent to 20,000 sit-ups and 20,000 squats.

BODY:

TruSculpt iD:  Monopolar RF focused hyperthermia that results in ~24% permanent fat reduction that can treat virtually ANY part of the body, regardless of how much or little fat is present, with added benefit of skin tightening, in as little as 15 minutes.

Kybella: FDA- approved injection of deoxycholic acid to eliminate fat cells.

miraDRY: Only FDA-cleared treatment that permanently dramatically reduces underarm sweating, odor, and hair, in as little as one appointment.

Botox: Effectively treats sweating in the underarms, palms, and soles.

Nothing like what you have tried before as it is not your typical hands-on pressure massage, on the contrary, we utilize the ideal vibrational frequency that your lymphatic system flows to help accelerate lymphatic drainage and optimize detoxification, which results in a healthier body and of course, more luminous skin.
Body Contouring via TRIO combination of Trusculpt iD to dissolve fat, Emsculpt to build muscle, and Lymphatic Technology Therapy to maximize fat cell elimination to deliver the optimal body contouring outcome.  We are the first and only office to think outside the box and offer these modalities simultaneously.

MIND:

Micro Meditation is an emerging practice bridging together the benefits of the ancient wisdom of traditional meditation with the modern developments in sound frequency therapy. Each Micro Meditation lasts between 15-20 minutes, with cumulative benefits lasting much longer. Designed to enhance and encourage stem cell regeneration, other physiological benefits include:

  • Higher level of mental clarity and acuity, with sharpened memory and focus
  • Decrease in hypertension, stress, and adrenal fatigue
  • Greatly reduced anxiety, depression, and sleep disturbances
  • Improved digestion and metabolism
  • Speeds up healing and slows the aging process

HAIR:

Microneedling with proprietary polypeptide growth factor blend and/or PRFM to correct hair thinning and stimulate hair growth that incorporates combination of in office procedures and at home topical and laser cap.
Excel HR: Permanent reduction of pigmented hair for any skin type.
