Refresh your appearance with aesthetic treatments in Harrisburg



Improve your appearance and boost your confidence

Discover how these non-invasive treatments can give you instant results

At our Institute Aesthetics Center we use the Alma ® Harmony XL Pro, a state-of-the-art laser light device which our expertly trained staff use to treat:

  • Unwanted hair
  • Unwanted tattoos
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Facial veins and redness
  • Acne scars
  • Stretch marks
  • Sun damage/sunspots

We can effectively treat the face and body.
A skin consultation will be required before aesthetic treatments to discuss your personal treatment plan.

We also offer facial aesthetic treatments including; BOTOX ®, Dysport ® & Jeuveau ®, and injectable fillers.

Do you miss the youthful, fresh appearance you used to have before sun exposure and time took its toll? Let the staff at The Aesthetics Center at Memorial Eye show you the difference injectables can have on your appearance.

BOTOX ®, Dysport ® & Jeuveau ® aesthetic treatments are available to address crow’s feet, frown lines, lip lines, and forehead lines, as well as excessive sweating of underarms, forehead and feet.

Improve the appearance of the skin on your face, neck or hands with this simple procedure. Our aesthetician will assess your concerns and choose the right peel for you. The peel is applied to the entire face and will cause exfoliation to occur and gently peel off.

The new, regenerated skin is smoother and more youthful than before. Chemical peels are ideal for sun damage, hyperpigmentation, age-related spotting, as well as acne and related scarring.

As we age, our faces naturally take on changes. Many faces lose fullness, making smile lines and crow’s feet more apparent, while others gain fullness in undesirable areas. Fillers such as Restylane ®, Juvederm ®, Voluma ®, and others can address those changes to restore a youthful and natural look!

These dermal fillers are injected in the skin, helping to diminish facial lines and restore volume and fullness in the face. We can use such aesthetic treatments to augment the lips, add volume to the cheekbones, eliminate folds and creases near the mouth and hide lines on the chin and jowls.

Tired of the bumps, stubble, and irritation of shaving? Laser hair removal eliminates excess hair and provides smooth, sexy skin you’ll love to touch. Say goodbye to razor burn, in-grown hairs, stubble and the hassle of using a razor at home. Combining multiple areas of hair removal at each session reduces the price dramatically.

Prominent leg veins can make you want to hide away or cover up your legs even in summer. But it doesn’t have to be that way! The Aesthetics Center at Memorial Eye offers effective aesthetic treatments to improve your legs’ appearance.

Your skin will feel smooth, soft and renewed with this treatment, which removes dead skin cells at the surface of the skin, allowing newly rejuvenated skin to replace it. We recommend aesthetic treatments like this service for sun damage, hyperpigmentation, large pores, fine lines, scarring, and dull aging skin.

Reduce the signs of aging with a micro-needling procedure. Microneedling is a safe, effective, minimally invasive procedure which creates a series of microchannels on the skin, resulting in glowing, smoother and younger-looking skin without the downtime or trauma that is associated with more invasive laser procedures.

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP), a clear serum that we create from your own blood) may be painted on after the procedure or injections of PRP can be added to the session. Microneedling with PRP is beneficial because it creates more tightness in the skin and speeds up the healing process.

Microneedling is used to treat everything from age spots and wrinkles to scarring and other forms of hyperpigmentation. PRP injections may boost these effects and help you achieve your desired results faster.

Using the Alma ® Harmony system, our highly trained staff can improve facial veins, redness and skin discoloration using IPL (intense pulsed light).

This quick and easy procedure revitalizes the skin, turning back time on the effects of sun damage, sun spots, acne, rosacea, and other skin imperfections and restores a natural glow.

Not everyone loves their tattoos forever. If you have “tattoo regrets” come see the skilled staff at The Aesthetics Center at Memorial Eye.

The Alma ® Harmony laser light therapy system provides safe and effective tattoo removal, leaving natural-looking skin. Our laser treats amateur or professional tattoos of many colors in 6-10 treatments.

Call us today for a free consultation to remove all or part of a tattoo that no longer fits your lifestyle!

As we age, our eyelids can droop and sag, interfering with our vision and making us look older than we feel. Eyelid surgery at Memorial Eye removes excess skin from the upper eyelids, improving both one’s vision and appearance.

Happy patients in Central PA


My wait time was minimal and I was pleased to note the furniture arrangement for social distancing and the sanitation practices in progress. All in all it was a much more relaxing experience than I anticipated and I was impressed by the procedures taken to assure safe practices for the safety of the patients and staff while reducing stress on the patients.


Very happy with all the staff, from check in, check out and nursing in pre op. Amazing. Very clean facility. Dr. Chotiner is so efficient and fast. Would recommend him to everyone.

Vey Love

Excellent care and personal attention are provided at Memorial Eye. Hats off to Dr. E. Chotiner, nurses and staff for making my experience there so great!

Q. Bender

As a rookie having my first visit at Memorial Eye in May 2020, I asked for a doctor that was patient and that is exactly what I got in Dr. Kowalski. He took his time and explained my options to me. My testing was extensive and thorough. The staff was very kind and made me feel relaxed during the surgery. A 5 star rating from beginning to end. Well done!


The staff and doctor were very accommodating. Always on time, if not earlier with appointments. The surgical staff was very attentive to any needs such as extra blankets if needed, and making sure you were comfortable while you waited for your surgery.

Pam C

Wonderful practice with kind and supportive employees. The doctors are top notch and excellent!

A. Hendrix

I was somewhat jittery about returning to the office after the COVID restrictions were lifted. My concerns were put to rest from the moment I stepped through the door and was greeted by an associate who took my temperature, asked pertinent questions, and offered hand sanitizer, as well as being very friendly. The check in and co-pay payment went equally as smoothly.


Surgery was quick and easy. Staff was very pleasant. Would recommend Dr. Chotiner very highly.

Patricia Scheidler

Service is very complete and professional. Dr. Erik Chotiner was very friendly and able to answer all of my questions. I am very pleased with service and will recommend.

Joyce Keefer
