Laser Skin Resurfacing
We continuously look for the latest and best technology. When it comes to skin resurfacing, fractional CO2 lasers are proving to be an exceptional choice. We offer the Lumenis Active, Deep and Total FX, and the Fraxel laser.
Fractional CO2 lasers repair damaged skin without the disadvantages of traditional CO2 lasers. Rather than remove the top layer of skin, like ablative lasers, they produce microscopic sites of thermal impact separated by areas of unaffected tissue. The spared healthy tissue between treatment zones contains cells that promote rapid healing. At the same time, each micro thermal zone penetrates deep into the dermis stimulating collagen remodeling and new skin.
Lumenis Fractional Lasers: Lumenis Active, Deep & TotalFX
The ActiveFX, Deep and TotalFX procedures are performed in our office and take between 20 - 45 minutes depending on the area treated. We use topical numbing cream to minimize discomfort during the procedure, with no anesthesia necessary. Afterward the treated skin feels like it has been sunburned. During the healing process skin will start to flake off within 2 days and pinkness is typically gone in about 7 - 10 days. Skin is noticeably tightened immediately afterward and most patients say they look 5 - 10 years younger after healing is complete.

We’re Grand Rapids’ home to Restylane, Juvederm, Radiesse, Perlane, Sculptra and Artefill treatments. Dr. Lamberts is a leader in the use of dermal fillers and has performed a high volume of procedures. Dermal fillers are a great solution for replacing lost volume and diminishing wrinkles as the face ages. They provide immediate improvement of acne scars, facial creases, marionette lines and nasolabial folds.
The eye area is one of the first places we see aging. Fillers work wonders by replacing volume lost during the aging process. Crows feet can be filled in, hollows under the eyes are improved, and the appearance of bags under the eyes is often eliminated.
Aging also affects the mouth area. Fillers are an excellent solution to gain fuller, more youthful lips, reduce vertical lines around the lips (smoker’s lines), correct deep wrinkles, and reduce marionette lines that appear between the nose and mouth. Fillers also add support to the corners of the mouth, which can droop with age in many people.
Deep Dermal Corrective Treatments
Deep dermal fillers restore a softer, more youthful contour to the face. This corrective approach rebuilds the foundation of the face by restoring volume to replace lost soft tissue and bone. As volume is replaced, the face lifts and skin redrapes. Two to three treatments over the course of a few months are typically required for full correction. These treatments last for two or more years.
Each filler has its own strengths that make it suitable for varying needs. Dr. Lamberts can identify which one will work best to accomplish your goals. As treatments evolve he is constantly monitoring developments to bring the latest and best innovations to his patients.
Non-Surgical Nose Job
Rhinoplastic surgery is something many people consider. A new solution, the instant nose job is a quick, nonsurgical 15 minute procedure. Dr. Lamberts improves the appearance of the nose by adding volume to the bridge and/or tip with fillers. The appearance of bumps can also be diminished by smoothing out the nose with Radiesse. Results last 1 - 1 1/2 years.
The procedure is a fraction of the cost of a surgical nose job, provides instant results and has no recovery time. Patients can go to our office and leave with a new, improved nose.
BOTOX® Cosmetic & Dysport
BOTOX® is one of the safest and most effective treatments for smoothing lines on the upper face. Technique and an artistic eye play a strong role in the outcome of the procedure.
Dr. Lamberts has performed thousands of BOTOX® treatments and was selected by BOTOX® Cosmetic to be one of their national physician trainers. His technique is focused on patient comfort and delivering great results. The use of a microfine needle and pure BOTOX® Cosmetic solution help ensure your experience will be positive.
Dysport offers many of the same advantages as BOTOX® and is also available through our office. Dr. Lamberts will help decide which treatment is right for you.
How miraDry Works
Lasting relief for Excessive Underarm Sweating
Stop excessive, unpredictable sweating and start living free from the debilitating condition known as hyperhidrosis. We are one of the first practices in the nation to offer new, miraDry treatments for excessive sweating under the arms. This life changing procedure is performed at our office and typically takes two noninvasive treatments. miraDry advantages include:
- FDA approved
- Minimal to no downtime
- Immediate and lasting results
- A dramatic reduction in underarm sweat
- Toxin-free relief
Before treatment, the underarms are numbed for patient comfort. During the miraDry procedure, precisely controlled electromagnetic energy is non-invasively delivered to eliminate the underarm sweat glands. Two, one hour procedures are typically recommended three months apart. The sweat glands don't grow back after treatment, resulting in a dramatic and lasting reduction of underarm sweat.
You should be able to return to normal activities or work right after the procedure, and can typically resume exercise within several days. Localized soreness or swelling is normal, and usually clears within a few weeks. Some patients have temporary, short-term altered sensation in the skin of their underarms or upper arms, which gradually disappears.
After treatment, most patients report a dramatic reduction of underarm sweat – in a recent clinical study, the average reduction was 82%. Reduction in sweat is immediate with optimal results obtained after the second treatment. As with any medical procedure, results will vary by person.
Call our office to schedule a consultation or for further information at 616.575.6891.
Patient results may vary, please contact our office for additional details.
