New Age Defy Resurfacing Option
for Younger, Healthier Skin

We are pleased to offer Portrait® Skin Regeneration to our patients. Also known as the plasma treatment, the FDA-cleared Portrait procedure can help you achieve smoother, tighter, healthier skin. Portrait treats multiple signs of aging with one treatment - wrinkles, brown spots, muddy tone, rough texture, sagging skin, even pitted acne scars. Results continue to improve for up to 2 years after treatment. Portrait often works for people who are not yet ready for a Laser Peel (C02resurfacing) or for those who desire less downtime with great results.

Graduates of the Program have reported lasting benefits in coping better with stress, illness and chronic pain; decreased physical and psychological symptoms; and improved self-esteem and enthusiasm for life.

Triple Duty Sunscreen
New You Seminar
Did you know that Revercel skin care and neutraceutical product lines were developed by Age Defy's husband-and-wife team of Doctors Rick and Arlene Noodleman? A cosmetic dermatologist and a preventive medicine specialist respectively, Revercel is dedicated to skin wellness. The products are reality-based:  the doctors first created Revercel to address their patients' needs and help them achieve healthy, young-looking skin. Great results have led to increased demand and worldwide distribution. Dr. Rick Noodleman recommends using Triple Duty's SPF 45 combined with tint and peptides this Spring and Summer. Dr. Arlene Noodleman uses Revercel PM nightly because it combines the anti-aging benefits of peptides, skin lighteners and antioxidants to regenerate the skin. Both of these products are available at Age Defy or online at

Patient Testimonial
This month's Raving Fan is a patient who
recently underwent CO2 laser resurfacing
with Dr. Noodleman.

Dear Dr. Noodleman,

I would like to take the time to tell you about my experience with your office. I have just completed having resurfacing and laser surgery, and I must say your staff has been outstanding. Every step of the way I was met with such personal care, that I felt as if I was the only patient they were treating. I never felt rushed or that my questions were unfounded, I was always met with a smile and a genuine interest in me.

My father is a retired oral surgeon and I remember him on the phone with his patients checking on them following surgery, in the evening and on many weekends. He'd care for them as people first and then as patients. I didn't realize how far our medical system had fallen away from this concept. It has happened so subtly that I didn't feel the impact until now. Your office treats people the way medicine used to be practiced. Going out of your way to make patients comfortable was the norm, not the exception.

Thank you for having such high standards in your office. It has been a pleasure being taken care by your Staff. What a great team of people you have.

April is National Stress Awareness Month

Research studies demonstrate that stressful thoughts and emotions have a dynamic, negative effect on health, vitality and the skin. Stress overload causes hormonal imbalances, producing too much cortisol (the stress hormone) and not enough DHEA (the vitality hormone). This imbalance has been shown to cause degeneration of skin cells and inhibit the skin's ability to regenerate. Age Defy's innovative services not only enhance your external beauty, they also address the internal, invisible "ingredients" that contribute directly to quality skin, improved health, emotional flexibility and increased energy

This month we will again offer the Mindfulness Stress Reduction Program (MBSR) (click here to learn more) to our patients. Other stress-reducers you might like to try this month include the emWave® personal stress reliever or one of our medi-spa services such as acupuncture (click here to learn about our new acupuncturist) or a therapeutic massage. All are designed to reduce stress, activate the body's natural reparative processes and help you achieve a balanced, healthy life.

Acupuncture has been shown to be effective for treating conditions such as headache, menstrual cramps, sports injuries, myofascial pain, arthritis, low back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, asthma, addiction and stroke rehabilitation. Acupuncture is also useful for the treatment of digestive disorders, skin conditions, depression, anxiety, insomnia, infertility, adjunctive cancer care and allergies. After the treatment, many people feel energized with a deep sense of relaxation and well being.
