CSLC about us
court red

Our patients call us their trusted advisors.

Welcome to CSLC. Whether you are a new patient, traveling
through northern Michigan, or an established VIP, we are here to help you highlight your natural beauty and unique style.

Our expertise, experience and comprehensive treatments set us
apart. We were recently named #1 Sculptra injectable provider
in the nation (and top 25 Galderma injectors in the U.S.). Yes, you read that right – right here in little Petoskey and Traverse City. By combining treatments and advanced techniques, we achieve the most ideal results – natural, you, better.

Our treatments and expertise set us apart.


Medspas usually lean more “spa” than “med.” There’s a salon-like, pretty atmosphere, and most services are facials, waxing, or massages. The “med” services are limited – maybe one or two brands of injectables, and a couple laser or other energy devices for skin or hair removal. There is usually only one medical provider who is often not present at all times. Physician supervisors often don’t perform services regularly, practicing full-time elsewhere in another specialty like surgery. Medspas can be great for in-and-out maintenance like waxing, a quick brow-boost or other event pick-me-up. But because their offerings are limited, medspa clients are often treated with very similar “recipes” of medical aesthetic services.

Cosmetic skin & laser center

Cosmetic Skin & Laser Center is first and foremost a medical aesthetic practice, not a medspa. Our providers are evenly split between medical (Physician Associates, Nurse Practitioners, and RNs) and aestheticians. Our physician and medical providers specialize in aesthetics full time. We perform some of the same non-medical services as a medspa (facials, peels, Hydrafacials etc.). Where we differ is the broad variety of aesthetic medical and minor surgical procedures we offer. From the 20 different types facial injectables (think Botox and fillers), to Threads, platelet-rich fibrin and Smartlipo, to the many different laser and energy based devices for every part of your body, our aesthetic procedures are literally too numerous to list. At Cosmetic Skin & Laser Center, our providers understand each face, each body, each client is unique – and we have the breadth of options and depth of experience to specialize in you.
