Facials

A facial is one of the best ways to thoroughly cleanse and rejuvenate your skin.

Signature Facial

This facial combines relaxing massage of hands, arms and shoulders while customized exfoliants, masks and serums are used to address specific concerns.

Acne Facial

The Acne Facial uses products and treatment modalities that focus on clearing out congested pores and reducing irritation while providing antimicrobial benefits. If appropriate, a salicylic acid peel is used along with a refining mask.

Deep Pore Cleansing or Customized Facials

A skilled professional will conduct a personal assessment and tailor a special mask based on your skin type. Using different facial products, the treatment will help to decrease the signs of aging and leave you appearing refreshed.

Express Facial

In this 30-minutes treatment, the express facial exfoliates and hydrates your skin. Concentrating only on the face, the specialist will also conduct an analysis similar to the customized facial.

Face Masks

Mask with Extractions

Extractions are used to manually remove clogged pores and blackheads from the skin, and a mask is used to soothe and renew the skin.

Cryogenic Mask

This specialized algae-based cooling mask is infused with Vitamin A and E that treats your skin to a refreshed look and feel.

Intense Collagen Eye Treatment

Hydrate, tighten and firm the sensitive skin around your eyes to reduce lines and promote a youthful appearance.

Lip Treatment

The skin on your lips is thinner than other areas of your face. Our hydrating, anti-aging ingredients will help your lips stay plump and smooth.

DiamondTome Microdermabrasion

DiamondTome Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive procedure that reduces pore size, acne scarring, early fine lines, sun damage and other skin concerns. In this 20-minute treatment, the resurfacing skin technique vacuums away dead skin cells, which leaves your skin soft and refreshed with no downtime.

Microdermabrasion can be used to treat the neck, chest, back, arms and hands. Children ages 8 and older, and both men and women (even pregnant) are safe to use this service.

Chemical Peels: Micro/Light Peels, TCA Peels

Chemical peels are classified by how deep into the skin the peeling agent penetrates, which are called superficial, medium, and deep peels.

Micro and Light Peels

A light peel exfoliates the superficial layer of skin, improving the skin’s tone, pigment and sun damage and smoothing out rough skin and acne. The agents commonly used in these peels are Alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs) and Beta-hydroxy acids (BHAs). Glycolic acid is the most commonly used AHA, and salicylic acid is the most commonly used Beta-hydroxy acid.

Recovery from a light peel is usually very rapid and consists of mild redness and flaking of the outer layer of skin. This process is usually complete in three to four days. Generally, your normal cosmetic routine can be resumed about one week after the peel.

We recommend having one peel every month for three months, but because the results of the superficial chemical peels are temporary, maintenance treatments are recommended.

Two popular options are the Decollette Micro Peel, which includes serum, moisturizer and sunscreen, and the Back and Shoulder Exfoliating Micro Peel.

TCA Peel

This peel utilizes a trichloroacetic 30% acid to remove age spots and sun damaged areas on hands, upper and lower arms. After its application, you may feel some burning and discomfort for up to 10 minutes.

The peel takes approximately 10 days for age spots to peel off.

What should I expect?

The procedure is done in the office and typically takes ten minutes.

What should I do before getting a chemical peel?

Prior to the procedure, the physician will meet with you for a consultation to advise you of any special instructions. You may need to discontinue using certain products on your face (such as retinol) for up to one week prior to the peel.

If you have a history of fever blisters, you may also be placed on an anti-viral medication for a few days prior to the peel.

Ear Piercing

Ear piercing is available for anyone that is eight years or older.

Eyebrow and Eyelash Design/Tinting

Our estheticians know the secret to crafting perfectly shaped eyebrows and amazing eyelashes. Based on the shape and balance of your face, they will help you achieve a natural look that also frames and brightens your entire face.

Tinting is also available to add definition and a portrayal of thickness to your brow and lashes, while also matching your skin town and hair.

Eyebrow Threading

Eyebrow threading is a hair removal technique, which has existed in Eastern countries for centuries. Unlike tweezing or plucking, eyebrow threading removes one clean line of hair all at once, making it much quicker and easier to shape the brows. The inexpensive technique uses 100% cotton thread and does not require irritating chemical ingredients.

The cotton thread is twisted and rolled along the surface of the skin entwining the hairs in the thread, which are then lifted quickly from the follicle. It is more precise than waxing and allows for better lines.

For those with sensitive skin or prefer a more natural beauty regimen, hair threading is an ideal choice, since it does not use harmful products. As opposed to waxing, the top layers of skin are not peeled or traumatized in the process making threading gentler on the skin.

This procedure does not require the discontinuation of retina or other acne products.

Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning is a highly efficient, safe procedure that immediately diminishes the appearance of dry lines on aging skin and creates a healthier more radiant appearance.

A skilled esthetician uses a modified surgical blade to remove dead or dry superficial layers. The exfoliation also increases the rate of absorption of pharmaceuticals and skin care products. Dermaplaning is a fantastic way to temporarily remove peach fuzz facial hair.
