Welcome! We opened our doors in 2001 as a medical practice devoted to aesthetics in Petoskey, Michigan, followed closely by our Traverse City location. Fortunately, aesthetic medicine continually advances: physicians and scientists world-wide continue developing new technologies, products and techniques that offer ever-improving results. At CSLC, we continually participate in advanced trainings with these pioneers and invest in the best technologies. You deserve the best results and we pledge to offer them to you.


Our menu features a la carte items and bundles to address multiple aging issues—from permanent wrinkles to age spots to dull skin. Trying to prevent the knife? In medical meetings from Miami to Paris to Hong Kong, this is the discussion at many round tables. Our providers are well versed at customizing a 4DPCCS (that’s Prevention, Cell turnover, Collagen stimulation, 4D Structural Augmentation) program for you. Although we can’t change your genes or age, committing to home care and professional treatments that address all layers of the facial structure guarantees the best way to “avoid the knife”.


The body changes with aging, even when your healthy habits stay the same. Metabolism slows, skin loses elasticity, and hormones fluctuate, causing fat pockets where they weren’t before. Minimally invasive technologies allow body sculpting with only a weekend of downtime. Our Medical Director Dr. Gustav Lo has performed over 1500 Smartlipo and Cellulaze procedures. With a weekend of downtime, we can reduce regional body fat and cellulite by up to 75% and offer significant skin tightening as well. In addition, at our Body division, we have Miradry treatments to get rid of underarm sweating PERMANENTLY, perform all-color tattoo removal, and offer high-speed permanent laser hair removal.


We’re not dermatologists, but our dermatology PA treats straightforward medical skin problems in all age groups. Can’t get into a dermatologist? Dermatology too busy to deal with your skin tags, age spots or acne? Just due for a skin cancer screening? Need that suspicious spot checked out sooner rather than later? We’ll get you in quickly, and we accept major health insurances.
