Chemical Peels

Chemical peels use a specific acid or blend of acids to chemically resurface this skin. This involves removing dead skin and debris. However, a few days after treatment, patients may see their skin begin to peel to reveal new skin beneath it. Chemical peels come in a variety of strengths and can be fully customized to fit each patient and their skin. Our master estheticians mostly perform light and medium strength chemical peels.

VI Peel

A type of medium strength chemical peel it offers the results of a medium strength peel with less skin peeling than light peels. With a unique blend of chemicals, it provides nourishment as it resurfaces and is often considered one of the best chemical peels for acne prone skin. It also a stronger strength peel that is safe for all skin types and tones.

Microneedling

Microneedling, sometimes referred to as collagen induction therapy, uses tiny needles to make microscopic punctures in the surface of the skin. Most of the time, these micro-injuries are not visible to the naked eye. However, they cause the body to respond to these injuries like they would any other, but creating new skin, sending more blood flow, and repairing the area. Since the area is relatively small, this leads to rejuvenation of the skin that is effective at treating acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, pigmentation issues, and rough textured skin.

RF Microneedling

RF microneedling stands for "radiofrequency microneedling" which takes the traditional microneedling procedure up a notch by adding radiofrequency treatment. This means that the radiofrequency waves can penetrate and treat the deeper layers of skin without over damaging the upper layers. It also provides non-surgical skin tightening.

Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning uses a surgical scalpel to gently remove dead skin and viscous hair from the surface of the skin. While the treatment does not go below the surface, it allows for your skincare products and future treatments to penetrate deeper, work better, and provide improved results. It also tends to provide a near immediate glow known as a "dermaplane glow". It is a great precursor for other aesthetic treatments and is usually safe and effective for most patients.

Oxygen Facial

A gentle flow of oxygen rejuvenates the skin and infuses nutrients for moisturized and healthier looking skin. This facial uses highly pressurized oxygen to treat the skin and is a great finishing touch before a big event. Oxygen facials can also serve as effective maintenance treatments to upkeep the look and health of the skin between more aggressive treatments.

Laser Hair Removal

Using a diode laser, a master esthetician can permanently reduce unwanted hair across the body. Targeting hair during it's various growth cycles, laser hair removal treats the hair within the follicle to prevent regrowth and provide long lasting, smooth skin. It can treat almost any area a person has unwanted hair including the underarms, chest, face, bikini area, arms, and legs.

Laser Tattoo Removal

Many people want to permanently remove tattoos at some point in their lives. Lasers are the least invasive and most effective way to do so. Targeting the pigment in the tattoo ink, the laser slowly breaks it down to smaller fragments that the body can metabolize. Over time, this fades the tattoo.

Zombie Carbon Laser Peel

The zombie carbon laser peels starts with the application of dark colored carbon lotion. A laser is then used to remove it. The lotion absorbs much of the pigment, though the laser energy still reaches the skin, it is much more controlled and does not cause damage the skin. Also a great maintenance treatment, it can address skin texture, pigmentation, and the build up of dead skin.

Combining two of the most powerful medical grade aesthetic treatments, the Glow Up Package is a customizable, curated package of three microneedling sessions and three chemical peels. Performed over the course of several weeks, the Glow Up Package aims to make a notable improve in the quality and look of the skin.
