The IO Clinic’s philosophy: cultivating beauty, inside & out

Over the last 10+ years as plastic surgeons, we’ve reversed the effects of facial aging for thousands of patients. But for many people, surgery isn’t the only – or the best – solution. To provide complete, personalized care for everyone, we expanded our med spa and skincare services, and added healing and wellness treatments as well.

Our aesthetic team helps patients delay or avoid the effects of aging – and the need for dramatic interventions – altogether. Our healing and wellness services support clients to feel and be as healthy and great as they look!

Our skin care treatments focus on the following concerns:

– Fine lines and wrinkles
– Discoloration
– Acne and acne-scarring
– Blemishes
– General scarring
– Redness and rosacea
– Sensitive skin
– Oiliness

Chemical Peels

To lightly smooth out texture, reduce inflammation in current blemishes/cysts, lighten acne discoloration, reduce pore size and kill bacteria that would otherwise cause future breakouts, The IO Clinic’s chemical peels will be customized to your particular type of skin and address your personal skin needs.

Commonly referred to as PIH, chemical peels target post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation which refers to the spots left over from old blemishes.


Dermaplaning is a non-invasive, no-downtime exfoliating treatment that is suitable for all skin types.Dermaplaning is a painless, superficial treatment that can be performed as often as every 2 weeks.

A dermaplaning treatment at The IO Clinic delivers the best Dermaplaning experience the Bay Area Has to offer. With each treatment you receive an in-depth skin assessment, cleanse, a deep cleanse and a warm compress to best prepare the skin for treatment. Next, a medical-grade stainless steel blade will be gently moved across your skin’s surface to remove dead skin, fine hairs (vellus hairs) and cellular debris. Your skin will be gently rinsed to remove any remaining debris, and hydrating and nourishing finishing product will be applied. Your skin will feel revitalized, and you’ll feel your most beautiful, inside and out.

Red Light Therapy Boosts

Red light therapy (RLT) boots are safe and effective treatment that can visibly reduce the appearance of wrinkles, redness, acne, scars and other signs of aging. Using our LightStim pro panels, patients can experience RLT without any side effects except leaving the treatment feeling very relaxed. Unlike the ultraviolet (UV) light from the sun or tanning booths, red light is not cancer-causing and is not toxic or harmful in any way.

Some common skin conditions The IO Clinic’s skin experts will recommend RLT would be improvement in:

  • Wound healing
  • Stretch marks
  • Wrinkles, fine lines
  • Age spots and sun-damage
  • Facial texture.
  • Psoriasis, rosacea and eczema
  • Scarring
  • Hair growth in people with Androgenic alopecia
  • Acne

An added benefit to all RLT treatments is that patients leave the session feeling very relaxed and calm.

Laser & Skin Resurfacing Treatments

In addition to the extensive skin care treatments offered at The IO Clinic, we also often refer patients to our medical spa, L&P Aesthetics, with locations in Palo Alto and Los Gatos. L&P Aesthetics offers the most advanced laser on the market, the Sciton JOULE™. Sciton which includes BBL Forever Young™, the MOXI laser and the Halo laser and provides the widest array of aesthetic procedures available from a single, scalable system. These modules are able to safely and effectively treat conditions such as fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, sun spots, acne, textural issues, and even unwanted hair.

Recovery and Beyond

We provide the curated products and personalized skincare services for a broad range of people, from young adults establishing their self-care habits to intensive, supervised treatment regimens for the most sophisticated, committed skincare clients.

  • Ongoing progress tracking, so your skincare plan can be adjusted and optimized over time
