The health of your largest organ, your skin, is far too precious to trust to anyone but highly trained medical aesthetic specialists. Those who are well equipped with the full spectrum of treatment tools needed to ensure a successful outcome, with minimal downtime and risk.

When you put your trust in AMA Regenerative Medicine & Skincare, you can be sure you’re getting the benefit of a comprehensive array of state-of-the-art lasers and complementary treatment options.

Because our goal is to heal your skin from the inside out, we work with your body’s own physiology to bring about a transformation of your skin. We believe that a holistic approach utilizing your own natural physiology to “regenerate” your skin so that it’s young, healthy and strong on the inside is the best way to give you fabulous looking skin on the outside. It’s what makes our multiple-modality protocols so unique. And our patients so happy with their beautiful, healthy results!

Rather than just repairing, our expertise is dedicated to “rebirthing” your skin.

A Physiological Transformation of Your Skin

Accordingly, our protocols, technologies and treatments are integrated from all viable sources and very different from most other skincare clinics.

Laser Medicine employs an extensive array of state-of-the-art lasers to physiologically transform the various tissue that comprise your skin and treat a full spectrum of cosmetic and medical conditions.

What are AMA Regenerative Medicine & Skincare’s Unique Pr3™ Protocols?

AMA Regenerative Medicine & Skincare’s protocols combine the simultaneous use of multiple lasers, as well as a variety of non-laser modalities to holistically engage your skin to “Physiologically Repair, Regenerate and Rebirth” young, healthy and beautiful skin.

Procedures done well are holistic in nature. By using our unique multiple modality protocols that integrate a wide array of advanced laser technologies with non-laser modalities, we stimulate the body’s natural resources to physiologically transform the skin to a much younger, functional state.

The superior results of synergistically combining modalities are real and scientifically measurable. Our protocols dramatically increase collagen production, diminish wrinkles, shrink pores and improve the skin’s tone and texture. Your skin will look genuinely healthier and younger on the outside because it actually is healthier and younger on the inside.

Understanding How Lasers Work Reveals Why Our Pr3™ Protocols are so Uniquely Effective

Lasers are highly effective skin treatment tools because of their precision and accuracy. A laser emits one simple frequency of purified light with its own “target specificity.” This allows the specialist to precisely target any component of the skin, right down to specific cell types and tissue structures. The higher the target specificity, the lower the required energy – which means fewer side effects, less downtime and minimal risk.

For instance, when treating a Melsma, we have five different frequencies of energy and three different pulse durations or pulse lengths, which means we have 15 different types of lasers that might be the right frequency for that specific melasma.

There are many lasers available for many different purposes, which presents a challenge to the medical aesthetic specialist because a wide variety of expensive lasers must be purchased in order to offer the kind of comprehensive, synergistic care that achieves the best results. This is an enormous, on-going financial investment that AMA Regenerative Medicine & Skincare is committed to making, year after year.

We currently utilize over 30 lasers, considerably more than most laser skincare clinics. Consequently, our experience with so many different types of lasers has allowed us to develop unique protocols integrating multiple modalities and allowing an extraordinary range of customized treatments. The importance of this in realizing optimal outcomes cannot be overemphasized, as patient needs vary so dramatically.

In addition to an ever-expanding array of state-of-the-art lasers, AMA Regenerative Medicine & Skincare’s expertise has now expanded beyond laser modalities to include fractionated laser devices, radio-frequency technologies, collagen induction therapy (CIT), high potency vitamin IV therapies, and physiological regulating medicine (PRM).

Procedures done well are holistic in nature. By using our unique multiple modality protocols, we can stimulate the body’s natural resources, physiologically transforming the skin to a much younger state and enabling it to perform as it did when youthful, before aging and lifestyle stresses took their toll.

Lasers and other hi-tech light-energy devices can also stimulate the immune system, detoxify the skin, remove old collagen and stimulate the production of new collagen. This is a true partnership between our technology and protocols, and the patient’s own physiology. The result is dramatically healthier, more radiant and youthful skin that appears completely natural and genuine because it’s exactly that!

We Have Seen it All

Over the past 20+ years, we have successfully completed more than 85,000 laser procedures. As they say: “we have seen it all.” Through it all we have intensely focused on the effectiveness of our protocols as they have evolved. Consequently, what we can achieve today is years ahead of what even laser manufacturers think is possible.

This is achievable because of our approach to stimulate and inspire the skin to do what only it knows how to do and that it once did when it was younger. The miracle is not our lasers or in our protocols. The miracle is inherent in your skin’s natural capacity to regenerate. We set it in motion, give it an occasional motivating push and direct it to a fabulous and completely natural result as the miracle of your younger skin naturally unfolds.

Pioneers and Perfectionists

At AMA Regenerative Medicine & Skincare, we are pioneers and perfectionists. We adopt and perfect the best that is available from other sources and develop new “integrative” protocols and treatments to achieve optimal results that far exceed industry standards.

What is most unique about AMA Regenerative Medicine & Skincare are the advanced, holistic, Integrative, multiple modality protocols we’ve developed through years of ongoing clinical research that intensely investigates the interactions between human organs – such as the skin – natural physiology and the energies emitted by many types of lasers.

Additional dimensions of AMA Regenerative Medicine & Skincare’s unique expertise in multiple-modality protocols are all the treatment modalities listed above such as our Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, High Potency Vitamin injections, Ozone therapies and our integral practice of Physiological Regulating Medicine (PRM) and Placental/Umbilical Tissues/Biological Allografts (FDA: HCT/P – Stem Cells).

A case in point is our renowned, proprietary SpectraLift Non-Surgical Facelift™, the world’s most comprehensive non-surgical facelift. In 1999 when we founded AMA Regenerative Medicine & Skincare, this procedure was born the “Triple Laser Facial (CP3).” Over the following decade, it evolved through extensive research, development and investment, from CP3, to CP4, 5, 6, 7, and finally into the completely customized, 11-modality procedure now known as the SpectraLift™.

A Physiological Approach to Laser Medicine

Perhaps the most important innovation to emerge from this intense research is AMA Regenerative Medicine & Skincare’s holistic, physiological approach to laser and aesthetic medicine. Our focus is the physiology of the patient’s skin as well as other organs systems affecting the skin, enabling us to treat the root cause of a condition in addition to its symptoms.

Accordingly, each protocol is designed to interact with your skin’s natural, physiological healing mechanisms of repair and regeneration, stimulating them to naturally bring your skin back to its youthful and radiant vitality. The SpectraLift™ will take years off your face on the outside by making your skin healthier and younger on the inside.

Thus, our protocols have achieved a unique partnership between the most advanced laser technologies in the world, advanced European PRM and the skin’s natural physiology, allowing us to customize treatments precisely to each patient. The beautiful result is young and healthy skin for decades to come.

In the field of laser medicine, an expert must utilize many different types of lasers to achieve mastery of the craft. However, the magic does not lie in the lasers themselves, but in how the lasers are used and who is using them. Beyond mastery of course there is artistry, which is held as the pinnacle of achievement in any field of medicine. Very few ever reach this level of expertise.
