In general, Retin-A is most effective in older patients who have some fine facial wrinkles, or blotchy pigmented areas caused by sun damage. However, Retin-A is often prescribed to younger, active individuals who want to combat the aging effects of sun exposure. Patients who are planning to have a chemical peel treatment are often instructed by their doctors to use Retin-A as a preparation treatment; Retin-A thins the skin's outer layer, allowing the acid solution used in a peel treatment to penetrate more deeply and evenly. Retin-A is not recommended for pregnant women or nursing mothers, because its effects on the fetus and nursing infant are still being studied. Patients from the Portland metro area and Southwest Washington can receive Retin-A treatments from a licensed aesthetician in The Medical Spa at PeaceHealth Medical Group.

"Thank You is Not Enough... - I am forever grateful to Dr. Gabriel and his team. My decision to have skin removal surgery after losing almost 100 pounds was not an easy one. I felt ugly and embarrassed, but from the very first visit his entire staff made me feel beautiful and worthy of such a surgery. Dr. Gabriel and every person that I have come into contact with along the way have been absolutely amazing. Yes, Dr. Gabriel is a wonderful surgeon, but more than that he is a caring and gracious man with a genuine commitment to women and women's health. I am 3 weeks post-op and when I reflect on my experience with Dr. Gabriel and his entire staff am a brought to tears. I can never thank them ALL enough. "- J. / RealSelf / Apr 14, 2017

"Could not be more pleased ?? - My experience with Dr. Gabriel has been wonderful! I had a breast reduction procedure and couldn't be happier with my results and my mother in law had a double mastectomy and reconstruction after a struggle with breast cancer. He makes you feel very comfortable and is as professional and courteous as they come! I would highly recommend using him ??"- M. / RealSelf / Mar 30, 2017
