"I had major reconstructive surgery as part of a procedure for cancer of the face and mouth. Dr. Lee was brought in to do the facial rebuild, which was extensive. I was asleep for most of his work but the post-op care was exemplary. He was warm, knowledgeable, explained everything and even met me at the clinic rather than have me come, much more inconveniently, to his office at the hospital."- I.J. / Healthgrades / Apr 03, 2016
"I had a terrible breakout that nothing could cure--due to hormonal treatment I received. It was so bad I had large inflamed acne all over my face that was hard to cover up with makeup. As a last resort I googled and found Dr Cheng. At my first appointment she prescribed an antibiotic wipe (covered by insurance which cost me only $3) and recommended a microderm to get the dead skin off my face. Immediately the redness and inflammation was gone. Within a week, my acne was almost invisible if I had makeup. After that I had monthly microderm and used clarisonic twice daily (plus the antibiotic wipe). I followed up with chemical peel about 4 months later. Now I can go makeup free, no bumps, no breakouts, and I am off the antibiotic wipe. I just use clarisonic and occasionally get my microderm. I thought the cost was reasonable, I think I paid like $100-$130 for microderm facial. Considering all the money I wasted on acne products and expensive makeup, this was a really good investment. I now get photofacials from her as well, which is really inexpensive, and gotten rid of most of my sun damage. A year ago I was ashamed to leave the house without makeup on, now I am very happy with my beautiful skin!Thanks Dr Cheng... you are wonderful."- H.F. / Yelp / Feb 17, 2014
"I just back from getting the hydration facial with Tela. It was amazing! I'm definitely coming back for more buhahah. The moment you come in you're greeted by the sweet Jeremy who is front desk and the person I give my credit card to. I've gotten some work done by Dr. Cheng as well in my previous visits. She's a total sweetheart and very gentle but gets results. I love coming to this place and plus I love literally 5 minutes away. Love!"- J.N. / Yelp / Apr 07, 2015
"I've been seeing Dr. Cheng for a couple of years now and she has improved the appearance of my skin immensely!! She is nice and patient and always happy to answer all the questions I have. She really keeps up with the very latest techniques and products to reduce wrinkles and brown spots. She's great with Botox and Restylane and IPL Fotofacial. She doesn't push products on you that you don't need and is helpful with advice on what you can do yourself to keep your skin looking healthy. I highly recommend her."- A.W. / Yelp / Nov 19, 2012
"For years now, Dr. Cheng and Teta at Nuveau Medical Aesthetics have been my 1st choice for skin care and fillers. Dr Cheng's fillers are so so gentle and subtle, never too much, always perfect for me! I've been loyal to Teta for many years, she is knowledgable about all the issues my skin goes through from travels, hormones and diet! Her facials get my skin back on the bright healthy path every time! So glad she is back home at Nueveau...Thank you guys"- L.B. / Yelp / Jun 05, 2015
A facial at Nuveau Plastic Surgery is great for all skin types and ages because it is adjusted to each patient's concerns and goals. Often, facials are designed to address early signs of aging (fine lines and dryness), improve damaged skin from the sun (dark spots, uneven tone and texture), deep cleanse to help clogged pores and acne, or brighten sallow or dull skin. They are customized to help adults and teens with conditions like widespread acne, rosacea, and sensitive skin. The results of a professional facial may be strengthened by combining it with another treatment like a chemical peel, microdermabrasion, or an injectable.
After a consultation to choose your custom treatment plan based on your skin's condition and needs, you can lie back in one of our private treatment rooms as your professional facial is performed. Your facial process will be personalized; however, most treatments will begin with a deep cleansing of the skin to eliminate any dirt, oil, makeup, and lotions. After cleaning the skin, steam is safely used to open the skin pores so whiteheads and blackheads are extracted easily. This is often followed by exfoliation, either by hand or using an add-on service (chemical peel or microdermabrasion). A serum or mask will be massaged in for deep skin nourishment. To end the treatment, a moisturizer selected for your skin type will be smoothed on to protect your complexion from environmental damage following the facial.
What to Expect
After your facial treatment, you may notice mild irritation and redness — this should fade on its own in 24 hours. Most patients will have clear improvements in the look and touch of their complexion right after their facial. To extend the benefits of your professional facial, talk to one of our skilled team members for advice on a home skincare program and how frequently you can have a facial treatment at Nuveau Plastic Surgery. You can also learn more about add-on treatments including chemical peels and microdermabrasion.
