Whatever your skin problem — whether it's acne, or you have mature, supersensitive, dry, or oily skin — our aestheticians will administer the perfect treatment to help your skin look its best. Each time you visit, your aesthetician will discuss your special concerns with you and pinpoint exactly what your skin needs.

The professional skin treatments we offer include:

  • Facials: A facial restores your skin and gives you a healthy glow, using a personalized combination of cleansers, toners, and other products that are appropriate for your skin type.
  • Microdermabrasion: Microdermabrasion is a very popular, non-invasive cosmetic procedure that uses a pen-like instrument to direct a stream of mildly abrasive crystals and vacuum suction to remove dead layers of your skin. It stimulates the growth of new and healthy skin cells and improves skin clarity.

Who is a Candidate?

If you have brown spots, uneven pigmentation, fine wrinkles, mild scarring, blemishes, or sun damage, you may be a candidate for skin therapies. Microdermabrasion can also remove some skin flaws — such as blemishes and sun damage — and allow skin care products to penetrate the lower layers of your skin and be more effective. A popular, non-invasive service to refresh the skin, facials are appropriate for anyone, regardless of your specific needs or goals.

What to Expect

This cosmetic treatment starts with an in-depth analysis of your skin, allowing your aesthetician to customize a treatment specific to your needs. You can enjoy a deep exfoliation, nourishing mask, and a relaxing facial massage – all essentials in maintaining healthy skin. Dermaplaning exfoliation is commonly used to treat deep acne scars and can supplement a facial.

Each treatment takes 30 minutes to an hour, and multiple treatments are normally recommended. For some patients, a maintenance regimen is recommended at times to maximize improvement.
