How can I determine what treatments and products will improve my skin?
If youíre serious about rejuvenating and protecting your skin, a thorough skin analysis with our Canfield VISIA® Complexion Analysis can guide you in deciding which treatments, products, and maintenance routines will keep your skin looking youthful and radiant. VISIA® provides the most comprehensive means available for identifying all aspects of your complexionís health. The VISIA® system uses multi-spectral imaging and analysis to provide a multi-dimensional portrait of your complexion, capturing key visual information for 6 areas affecting its health and appearance:
- Skin tone
- Pore bacteria
- UV spots
The information provided instantly by your VISIA® analysis will guide your aesthetician in creating a customized treatment plan and anti-aging skin care regimen in our Grand Rapids office. You can even take home a printed report of your imaging session, which explains recommended rejuvenation and skin care options.

Whatís the best way to correct or improve my skin and prevent premature aging?
Restoring your skinís youthful appearance and keeping it in optimal condition require a “G” “R” “A” “S” “S” roots" approach:
- Growth Factors
- Specialty Products
Each factor above is critical for restoring and maintaining great skin.
G Growth factors
Growth factors are naturally occurring proteins that repair and remodel the skin. As we age, we begin to lose these growth factors, resulting in slower healing time, collagen loss, and the appearance of aging skin. Grand Rapidsí transforMD Skincare and Laser Center offers medical-grade skincare products, which contain a high concentration of growth-factor proteins. When we replenish the growth factors lost with age, we help prevent lines and wrinkles from appearing.
Retinoids gradually exfoliate our skinís dull outer layers and aid in rejuvenation. With age, our cell turnover rate slows, leading to an accumulation of dead cells and a dull appearance to our skin. Retinoids can remove those dead cells, giving your aging skin a luminous, youthful glow. At the Grand Rapids transforMD Skincare and Laser Center, we carry retinol products in different concentrations to meet your individual needs, keeping your skin looking healthy and glowing.
WHERE SMART & BEAUTY MEET
Antioxidants defend skin against free radicals and environmental damage, including UVA rays and environmental pollutants. Antioxidants prevent and repair damage to your bodyís tissues by slowing or preventing oxidation, which can lead to cell dysfunction. If youíve seen a peeled apple turn brown, youíve seen oxidation in action. The transforMD Skincare and Laser Center offers numerous products with powerful antioxidants to protect your skin from many different aggressors.
Sunscreen containing zinc oxide shields the skin from damaging UVB and UVA rays responsible for skin cancer and aging. And itís never too late to start! If you already have sun damage, your skin can heal if you start to protect it now. Our oil-free, ultra-sheer sunscreens contain zinc oxide and feel great on the skin, unlike thicker over-the-counter sunscreens.
Specialty anti-aging skin care products address the unique needs of each individual patient. The Grand Rapids transforMD Skincare and Laser Center carries a wide range of specialty products to treat skin conditions that occur with age, environmental damage, or hormonal factors.
Beautiful skin doesnít just happen; it requires daily maintenance as well as frequent exfoliating treatments to remove dead skin and stimulate collagen. Exfoliation enables your skin to absorb the nutrients in your skincare products, creating beautiful skin and a new, healthy glow!
The transforMD Skin and Laser Center's licensed aestheticians are dedicated to helping you attain the most vibrant, youthful skin possible, regardless of your age or skin type.
