Dr. Neil S. Gladstone, a local Board Certified Obstetrician and Gynecologist, has practiced since 1975. He recently opened SKINaesthetics, which is, in part, a dream come true, in that he has fantasized through the years about offering spa services to his mothers-to-be while they sat in his waiting rooms.

Dr Gladstone, in the early 1980’s, pioneered the use of laser surgery in the Atlanta area and continues to offer this service with the use of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Therapy and Botox. This new venture has been a natural extension of his experience; and he is proud to offer his patients the best technology available for hair removal and photofacials at his new office in the Alpha Internal Medicine building at 745 South Glynn Street.

Dr. Gladstone realizes that many of the skin problems his patients face have a significant impact on their lives. His vision has always been to provide the best medical care at a reasonable cost. He remains true to that vision with SKINaesthetics. Instead of encouraging you to buy very expensive packages, he offers a program that allows you to pay for services based on what you need.

SKINaesthetics also offers a unique mobile service. Dr. Gladstone said, “With the mobility of our state of the art equipment, we can offer the same services that you would normally receive in our offices at your discretion. We will come to your home or office for an individual consultation or a spa party." You can take advantage of this service for a minimal travel fee. For more information call 770-952-0103.
IPL is the leading procedure used to enhance the appearance of skin and provide permanent hair reduction. IPL and lasers are very similar, but IPL systems provide a more efficient and comfortable solution. The IPL hand pieces allow the treatment of a larger area than a laser but have a very similar precision. This allows treatment of legs, chest, or back in a single treatment. IPL provides the most safe, comfortable, and effective treatments available, without any downtime. We offer the Gentle Yag laser for treatment of vascular lesions and leg veins. The long wavelength of the Gentle Yag laser reaches deeper into the skin, making it ideal for treating leg veins and dark skin types. 

SKINaesthetics also offers Photo-Rejuvenation Therapy or more commonly referred to as a PhotoFacial. This procedure will remove skin imperfections like sunspots, age spots, and superficial blue, red, or purple veins and reduce the appearance of rosacea. PhotoFacials improve the skin by working beneath the top layer of the skin to increase collagen and tighten the skin. Some patients even notice an improvement with acne breakouts as well.

For many men and women, unwanted hair can be a nightmare. By using IPL to gently remove unwanted hair, you can put an end to the routine of shaving and waxing. IPL treatments leave your skin looking and feeling smoother and silkier. The number of treatments you may need for long-term benefits depends on the area you wish to have treated, the hair density, and your hair's growth cycle. IPL slows the growing capacity of hair follicles in the growth cycle at the time of the treatment. Three or more treatments may be required to receive optimum results.

Finally, SKINaesthetics offers BOTOX injections, a simple and non-surgical procedure that uses very low dose of a natural purified protein that are injected into specific muscles. This therapy relaxes the muscles and prevents the contraction that create wrinkles. The procedure takes 5 to 10 minutes, and you can return to work or daily activities immediately. Results of BOTOX injections are noticeable in a few days, and last for several months.
