We have a wide range of laser solutions to help reduce signs of aging and create a more uniform texture to get you jump started to a summer glow:

BBL Photo Rejuvenation

BBL Photo Rejuvenation, or broadband light, allows physicians to provide a broad range of aesthetic procedures using only a single, compact system. This one-of-a-kind device uses advanced dual-lamp technology to treat a myriad of skin conditions with various wavelengths, delivering light therapy to target signs of aging and sun damage. BBL Photo Rejuvenation is proven to help treat several different types of skin conditions, including the following:

  • Acne
  • Freckles
  • Age Spots
  • Vascular Lesions
  • Rosacea
  • Deeper Lesions
  • Sun Damage

BBL Photo Rejuvenation requires zero downtown and patients can resume their activities immediately! This laser skin treatment also promises long-term results, based from a study of patients treated 10+ years ago. BBL Photo Rejuvenation laser skin treatments are fast, with an average time of 12 to 15 minutes in duration.

Clear and Brilliant

Clear and Brilliant is a gentle laser that refreshes your skin from the inside out. The laser energy creates millions of microscopic treatment zones in your skin, replacing damaged skin with healthy younger looking tissue. Clear & Brilliant can truly bring on a glow to your skin!

Clear + Brilliant creates and defines an entirely new category of laser aesthetic treatments designed to attract younger patients looking to take control of their aging process. This is one of the most common introductory lasers we offer, that provide the following benefits to most any skin type:

  • Visibly illuminated skin tone
  • Renewed, ultra-soft and smoother texture
  • Naturally radiant and glowing skin
  • Improved tone, texture and radiance

Fraxel re:store Dual

The Fraxel re:store Dual wavelength system is the industry standard for effective skin resurfacing with low downtime. It is the industry standard for effective skin resurfacing, removing acne scars and surgical scars, melasma, wrinkles and other skin blemishes. This revolutionary laser skin treatment provides dramatic results with utmost safety.

With FDA approval to treat photodamage, mild to moderate periorbital wrinkles, acne scars, surgical scars, melasma and other dyschromia, and actinic keratosis. Fraxel offers predictable, dramatic results with a great safety record for all skin types, on and off the face—with minimal disruption to your daily routine and no wound care. Since it delivers predictable epidermal turnover with each treatment, nearly all patients see immediate improvement. And due to collagen remodeling, these results are enhanced over weeks and months

You already take care of your skin, but with natural going, skin loses elasticity. Luckily, Thermage® CPT (Comfort Pulse Technology) can help. Thermal CPT is the only non-invasive procedure that helps tighten and contour your skin in a single treatment—with no surgery, no injections, and little to no downtime.

Have Dark Patches? It May be Melasma (Especially if You’re Pregnant!)

Have you ever looked in the mirror and noticed some darker patches that weren’t there before? Chances are, especially if you are pregnant or have a new bundle of joy, it could be the common skin problem, Melasma. 

Melasma causes brown to gray-brown patches, usually on the face, and are most commonly found on the cheeks, bridge of the nose, forehead, chin, and above the upper lip. These patches can also appear on areas of the body that get a lot of sun, such as the forearms and neck. 

While Melasma can appear on anyone and is more likely to manifest in women. For pregnant women or new mothers, the changes in hormones seems to trigger Melasma. In fact, it is so common during pregnancy that melasma is sometimes called “the mask of pregnancy.”

But, not to fear, the signs of Melasma can be minimized.  “Although we create customized treatment plans for each of ourclients, we like to use Peels and the Clear & Brilliant laser treatments to help reduce the pigment” says licensed aestheticians Christie Dean & Melody Richt. “In addition to the peels, it’s important that our clients continue care outside of their time with me. Combining products that have retinol, vitamin c and prescription hydroquinone product in their formula with a sunscreen that has broad spectrum physical UVA-UVB protection, will yield maximum results. We recommend having a complimentary consultation to go over the best regimen for you.”

Now that the sun is shining, it’s more crucial than ever to protect your skin, and not just your face! Every day driving gives your arms, hands, neck and face a lot of heightened sun, so wearing sunscreen every day and reapplying is the key to prevention.

In addition to a broad spectrum physical block sunscreen, we recommend wearing a hat, especially a wide-brimmed hat, when you are outside or in areas that will get lots of sun.

Chattanooga’s Medical Aesthetic Practice Offers Newest Version of Non-Invasive Fat Reduction Procedure

Center for Facial Rejuvenation is now offering the BTL Vanquish ME and the Vanquish Flex applicator for an even more efficient form of non-invasive, no-downtime fat reduction.

Chattanooga, TN – October 25, 2016

Center for Facial Rejuvenation is proud to announce that they are offering the latest and greatest version of the popular Vanquish fat reduction treatment: the Vanquish ME. Vanquish treatments are known for using radiofrequency energy to non-surgically eliminate fat cells in the abdomen and flanks and trigger the skin tightening process. The fat cells targeted by radiofrequency are then naturally eliminated from the body. The new ME version offers a customized treatment that analyzes your body and fat content to deliver a more powerful, more efficiently distributed level of radiofrequency energy. The Vanquish ME is extremely effective, and can remove up to 60% of excess fat.

The Vanquish ME treatment is delivered through an applicator that hovers over the treatment area. Many patients report no discomfort from the treatment, and there’s no downtime afterwards.

This new update also comes with the “Shrink-wrap technique,” which offers a circumferential form of fat reduction that targets the abdomen, the back, and the entire midsection all in one treatment.

Center for Facial Rejuvenation is also offering the brand new Vanquish Flex Applicator, another no-touch non-invasive treatment that uses the same Vanquish technology to contour the thighs and reduce excessive fat called “saddlebags.”

To celebrate their new treatments, Center for Facial Rejuvenation will be offering the Vanquish Shrinkwrap Series (4 treatments) for $2490 during the entire month of November.

Oh My Aging Hands!

Often our hands are the last area we focus on  yet the first  to show signs of  “wear and tear.” Sun damage, volume loss and thinning skin all play a part in the aging process of our hands. Because our hands are naturally thin, usually exposed to the elements and often overlooked with sunscreen it’s no wonder they can look “old before their time.”

When considering treatments for aging hands we can break them into two categories; resurface and refilling.


Resurfacing can be accomplished with topicals, chemical peels and lasers. Topicals like Obagi Clear which contains 4% hydroquinone (HQ) or Skin Medica Lytera which is HQ free are inexpensive ways to lighten dark spots and uneven skin tone. The good news is they really work!

Chemical peels are a second option for lightening sun-damaged skin of the hands. In addition, chemical peels like the Vi Peel or PCA peels can resurface the hands leaving a smoother texture.

Lastly, lasers are an option for hand resurfacing and rejuvenation as well.  A little more costly, high-tech options like Fraxel laser can restore the skin’s luminosity and suppleness with little to no downtime.


Since aging is really about volume loss and skin laxity, refilling the hands becomes the most effective treatment for beautiful looking hands. Radiesse® Hand Rejuvenation is quickly becoming one of the most sought after beauty treatments because women are discovering the hands should be addressed along with the face and neck.

Radiesse® is made of tiny calcium microspheres and has an impressive track record for re-volumizing the face. Plus, it has been shown to last up to 12-24 months. Hand rejuvenation is a  quick and virtualy painless procedure that takes about 15 minutes. The hands are numbed, the filler is injected and then gently massaged. Areas of depression, bony prominence and vein protrusion are softened giving the hands a fuller, more healthy look. The Radiesse® then stimulates your own body to produce both collagen and elastin contributing to the long lasting effect.

One of our actual clients who was thrilled with her results immediately after 15 minute Radiesse® Hand Rejuvenation.



Call today to schedule your free consultation and see if a Radiesse® Hand Rejuvenation is right for you. From our expert staff to our state of the art medical facility, Center for Facial Rejuvenation is “hands down” the best choice for your aesthetic needs.
