Treatment Areas & Conditions

At the Polacek Center for Plastic Surgery, we strive to help patients with varying needs achieve their cosmetic goals. Through minimally invasive aesthetic treatments, our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Lori Polacek will customize a treatment plan to effectively address your concerns. Whether you struggle with wrinkles, aging skin, skin laxity and deflation, or stubborn areas of body fat that are resistant to diet and exercise, we are here to help! Learn about the comprehensive solutions we offer to help you feel more confident and look more youthful.


Fine lines and wrinkles are some of the most common age-related concerns that affect men and women as they age. Depending on the area of concern, our team can coordinate a customized treatment plan to help diminish unwanted wrinkles, fill areas of deflation, and smooth your skin to a more youthful appearance.

Facial Deflation & Aging

As collagen and fatty tissue are gradually depleted from the face with age, this can lead to a sunken or deflated appearance. Common areas where this becomes noticeable is the cheeks and lips. With the help of JUVÉDERM® dermal fillers, we can help restore this lost volume for more youthful facial contours.

Sun Damage, Rosacea & Dark Spots

Excess sun exposure over the years can lead to damaged skin and dark spots (hyperpigmentation). Through our many offerings of laser treatments, prescriptive-strength skin care products and peels, we can reduce the appearance of dark spots, sun damage, and even rosacea to obtain a more even skin tone.


Irregular Pigmentation

Facial areas with uneven skin pigmentation can make some individuals feel self-conscious. By utilizing laser and light therapies, as well as chemical peels, our team can help you address irregular pigmentation concerns, such as rosacea, to achieve a more youthful and even skin glow.


Vaginal Health

Cosmetic and functional vaginal concerns can affect women of all ages. If you are concerned with changes that have been the result of the natural aging process, childbirth, menopause, or incontinence, you may be a good candidate for our CO2RE® Intima non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation. Our patients have returned year after year for their “maintenance” treatment due to the amazing results they have experienced.

Double Chin

Excess fat underneath the chin, also known as a “double chin,” is a cosmetic concern that can occur in even the most fit individuals. For those with a double chin caused by excess fat, we can help sculpt the upper neck area through minimally invasive treatment options such as CoolSculpting® or KYBELLA®.

Diminishing Jawline

Sagging skin, such as jowls, and jawbone recession caused by the aging process can produce a diminished jawline appearance. Through innovative treatment options—like dermal fillers, laser resurfacing, and microneedling—our team can tighten lax skin in the lower face and restore volume to the chin area for a more balanced and youthful jawline contour.

Aging Hands

The face and the hands are two areas that tend to show signs of aging the earliest. The back of the hands can lose volume over time and you may begin seeing dark spots, creating an older appearance. Through our state-of-the-art laser treatments, you can restore a smoother look and feel to your hands.


Whether you have scars from acne, surgery, or another culprit, we can help you diminish the noticeable appearance of these marks for healthier-looking skin. From filling indentations to reducing redness, scar revision through laser therapy, filler injections, or prescriptive-strength chemical peels can help.


Acne can be a frustrating chronic condition for many people, even into adulthood. Through treatment options like NORDLYS™, prescriptive-strength skin care products and chemical peels, you can minimize breakouts and achieve smoother, more radiant skin.
