Dermatology FAQs

What Should I expect During my Facial Consultation?

Dr. Behr or one of her providers will first discuss with the patient their primary concerns or goals and how these may be treated. Botox or Filler can be done the same day if scheduled appropriately. Then, a full-face evaluation is done examining texture(wrinkles), tone (pigment and redness), tightness, and volume. Since there are so many treatment options available, we like to make a personalized treatment plan and educate you on the options best suited for you. Our goal is a balanced treatment plan to give the best, most natural results. Daily skin care and sun protection is also very important, and we have expertly trained aestheticians who know just what Dr. Behr would recommend.

What can I do to improve the look of my skin?

Behr Laser & Skin Care Center is always on the cutting edge of treatments to improve the appearance of your skin.  We are the premier laser center in the San Joaquin Valley and Dr. Behr is a national speaker and trainer for Botox, fillers, Kybella and aesthetics. Treatment often involves a combination of therapies to give the best and most natural results. Customized treatment often involves a combination of therapies to give the best and most natural results. Let us make a customized plan just for you. Medical-grade skin care and sunscreen are also very important to skin health. These include antioxidants, growth factors, retinoids that help prevent damage and stimulate collagen production. We have aestheticians that will personalize your skin care regimen.

What treatments are available at Behr Laser & Skin Care Center?

We offer a wide array of the latest cosmetic treatments under the direction of Kathleen L. Behr, a nationally renowned Board-Certified Dermatologist. We are experts in injectables such as Botox, fillers, and Kybella.

Instalift threads and Ultherapy are a couple of Dr. Behr’s favorite treatments to tighten and lift the skin. Aesthetician services include HydraFacial, SaltFacial, and Dermal Infusion, along with consults on medical-grade skin care. Our goal is to educate every patient on the best individualized treatment plan for them and develop a relationship with each patient so we can care for them today and in the future.

What Body Treatments are Available?

BehrBody treatments are available to kill fat (CoolSculpting and Liposuction),  tone muscles (CoolTone, Emsculpt and Emsella), improve skin texture and tighten skin for the neck, chest, arms, abdomen and legs (Fraxel, Vivace, and Ultherapy, ThermiTight and ThermiSmooth), and collagen stimulators to help the texture of the skin (Radiesse and Sculptra).

How Much Does Treatment Cost?

This is individualized for each patient since each patient’s goals and plans are different.  We offer a range of convenient payment options and accept CareCredit and GreenSky payment plans.

Do Laser Treatments Hurt?

Most laser treatments are administered in pulses that last only a fraction of a second, which minimizes how much you feel. The sensation depends on the laser and the energy level selected. This can range from a light rubber band snap to an uncomfortable burning sensation. To make our patients comfortable we have a wide range of anesthetic options including topical numbing cream, Zimmer (cool air), Pro-Nox (nitrous oxide gas), oral or injectable pain medications.

What Sunscreen Should I use and how often?

Dr. Behr recommends applying sunscreen of at least SPF 30 every morning and reapplication every 2-3 hours. In the office, we carry only chemical free sunscreen containing titanium and zinc oxide since these are the safest for our patients and our environment. These ingredients block the sun and are not absorbed into the skin.  One of Dr. Behr’s favorite for reapplication is the Colorescience Brush-On Face Shield SPF 50.  It can be applied over makeup, in the part line on the scalp, as well as on the body, with no mess or greasy feeling.

What distinguishes Behr Laser & Skin Care Center from other medical spas?

This is all under the guidance of a nationally known Board-Certified Dermatologist, Dr. Kathleen L. Behr.
