VISIA® Diagnostic Skin Analysis

This is the “first step” to transforming the look and feel of your skin’s texture and appearance. Our clinical esthetician uses the Visia system to capture key visual information for six areas affecting the health of your complexion (wrinkles, spots, pores, color variation, porphyrins (bacteria in the pores) and UV damage).

Deep Pore Cleanse

This individually formulated treatment exfoliates the skin to expose a healthy glow. Skin analysis, followed by gentle cleansing, facial massage, light extractions and warm towels, culminating with a custom-blended mask (calming, or glycolic) depending upon skin type. A hand massage with warm mitts is added to complete the relaxing experience.

Problem Skin

This treatment is designed to address both adolescent and adult acne, and includes a deep pore cleanse, extractions and a deep follicle mask to aid in the elimination of blemishes, plus a rebalancing moisturizer with sunscreen. Extend the benefits of your treatment with proper skin care instruction and recommended home care products.

Micro-Dermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive procedure beginning with dermaplaning of the skin, followed by the use of controlled vacuum-assisted pressure to gently exfoliate and extract dead skin cells, and unveil younger, healthier looking skin. This procedure offers remarkable results by diminishing fine lines, blackheads, blemishes, minor pigment inconsistencies and sun damage. Treatment is completed with a light alpha-hydroxy acid solution.

Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning is a physical exfoliation procedure. It requires the use of a sterile, surgical scalpel to gently “shave” the skin’s surface, removing the top-most layer of dead skin along with fine, vellus hair (aka peach fuzz). The procedure can be performed monthly, in less than thirty minutes, with no downtime post-treatment. Physical exfoliation triggers the cell regeneration process and allows products to better penetrate skin.

Chemical Peels

Single Micro-Peel
Treatment

Designed to resurface the skin, this three-step process removes a micro-thin layer of skin using pure enzyme, or dermaplaning. That’s followed by a 20/70% Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) application, and skin freezing using C02.

Liquid Retinol
(added to Micro-Peel treatment)

A liquid Retinol may be added for extra exfoliation. This procedure helps cellular turnover and reduces acne, fine lines and brown spots.

Micro Peel “PLUS”
Treatment

This is an advanced treatment to stimulate cellular turnover through the application of salicylic, lactic acid and Resorcinol applied to the skin, followed by liquid Retinol which remains on the skin. People experience the best results through multiple treatments, which help to smooth fine lines, even skin discoloration and reduce acne and sun damage.

Vitalize Peel – Single Treatment

This peel helps to erase the effects of time, and is an unique blend of 10% alpha-hydroxy acid, beta-hydroxy acid, Resorcinol and 3% retinoic acid. It’s clinically proven to improve pigmentation, malasma and the effects of sun damage. You will experience little or no down time with this superficial peel. The best results are achieved with a series of treatments, and it’s suitable for most skin types.

Jessner/TCA Peel

A 14% Jessner solution and a 20% Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) is applied to give a “medium depth” peel, which focuses on deep wrinkles, pigment problems and skin imperfections in order to smooth the skin texture. This process can be done on the face, neck, chest and arms. The treatment price varies, depending upon which areas are treated.

ZO (by Zein Obagi, MD) 3-Step Peel

This technologically advanced three-step procedure is the only multi-functional, epidermal peel designed to provide long lasting treatment benefits. It uses a blend of exfoliants (17% Salicylic acid, 10% TCA, 5% Lactic acid, 6% Retinol), which stimulate collagen and restore the skin’s moisture balance. The process reveals softer, smoother, tighter-looking skin. Best results are achieved with multiple treatments, which are suitable for most skin types.

Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) using Rejuvapen

Also referred to as “micro-needling” this non-ablative treatment stimulates the body’s production of collagen, resulting in the reduction of wrinkles, improvement of overall skin texture and the minimization of pores. CIT is also effective in improving the appearance of acne scars and stretch marks. The best results are achieved with multiple treatments.

Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP) using Rejuvapen

Achieving celebrity status as the “vampire facial”, PRP therapy utilizes a leading-edge patented technology to extract naturally occurring protein growth factors from your own blood plasma to stimulate skin repair through promoting cell growth and collagen production. The treatment visibly transforms the look and feel of your skin. Ask if PRP is right for you.

I believe that a sense of well-being stems from feeling good, looking good, and having meaning and accomplishment in your life.
