Christie Clinic cosmetic services bring cosmetic laser and anti-aging techniques to men and women of any age who want to improve the look and feel of their skin. Radiance Cosmetic Center treats cosmetic skin concerns and medical dermatology.
We offer many options including laser peels, resulting in dramatic improvement over a week’s downtime to “lunchtime” treatments with immediate results and no downtime.
Lax skin, surface wrinkles, redness (rosacea), brown spots (sun damage) and enlarged pores are some of the most common conditions to treat. Our services also include treatments to greatly improve the color (redness) and texture of acne scars and surgical scars. Our expert team can also eliminate facial capillaries or leg veins.
All procedures are done by board certified dermatologists, a physician assistant and laser technician. Our team is led by the onsite supervision of Christie Clinic dermatologists with years of experience.

Jeremy Youse, MD
In the Department of Dermatology
Dr. Youse treats patients with skin problems such as acne, rashes, hives, and skin tumors. He performs Mohs Micrographic Surgery for skin cancer removal. Mohs surgery is unique and so effective because of the way the removed tissue is microscopically examined, evaluating 100% of the surgical margins. This ensures complete cancer removal during surgery, virtually eliminating the chance of the cancer growing back and minimizing the amount of healthy tissue lost. Dr. Youse also has a special interest in laser and cosmetic procedures.

Stephanie Cwik, Laser Technician
Why I Became a Technician
I have always been interested in cosmetics and skin care. As an adult, I have struggled with acne and acne scarring. I feel that Dermatology is the best fit for me because of my own struggle with my skin. By being able to provide cosmetic services, I am able to make patients feel better in their own skin and it makes me feel proud to do so.
