Advanced Laser Clinic, affiliated with Family Practice Associates, officially opened for business in January.

Having to deal with wrinkles, acne, stretch marks or any other skin-related issue can be very frustrating. Most of the time it seems impossible to find the right treatment without damaging your skin further. 

For those who can relate to this, Advanced Laser Clinic has a solution for you. 

Advanced Laser Clinic, affiliated with Family Practice Associates, officially opened for business in January.

“I do micro-needling for acne, acne scaring, stretch marks, just total skin rejuvenation,” said certified laser technician and owner Jennifer Hiemstra. “Then I also do skin tightening and wrinkle reduction.”

Micro-needling is a non-surgical treatment involving a device with fine needles called a Cosmo Pen. The pen creates tiny punctures in the skin, which then triggers the body to create new collagen and elastin in the area. This process improves firmness and texture of the skin and minimizes acne and acne scars. 

On top of micro-needling, Hiemstra also uses a device called Pelleve. 

This device delivers radio-frequency energy to the skin, which heats up the deep layers of the skin. The heat then allows collagen to break down and begin growing new collagen, which then reduces wrinkles and tightens the skin. 

“It’s just a great place to come to start working on skin rejuvenation and all your imperfections,” said Hiemstra. “Just a place to target the things that kind of bother you.”

Hiemstra stated that she had recently received certification as a laser technician in order to begin this business.

“I’m not getting any younger, so it was time to start working,” said Hiemstra. “There’s also not a whole lot of options out here.”

Advanced Laser Clinic is located at Family Practice Associates at 120 West Ross Blvd. They are open during the week from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
