Clinical Facial Treatments
Having a comprehensive facial analysis is the first step to looking your best. We recommend a thorough, careful inspection of your skin by one of our skilled aestheticians. They take into consideration your skin’s unique qualities and develop an exclusive plan for optimum health focusing on skin type, health history, and lifestyle.
Your individual complexion analysis takes into account characteristics including pore size, evenness of skin tone, spots, fine lines, and wrinkles. This information is then used to create a plan to help you achieve facial rejuvenation and excellent continuing care for your skin. Your skin care plan may include physician-recommended skin care products in combination with procedures such as microdermabrasion and peels.
Meet our Aestheticians.
Microdermabrasion is a skin-rejuvenation technique that can give your face a fresh look and a fresh start. Microdermabrasion can be especially helpful for skin damaged by the sun and skin that has wrinkled or changed pigmentation due to aging. Our non-invasive skin “polishing” treatment utililizes diamond encrusted tips to gently erase signs of sun damage, acne, pigmentation, fine lines, and scars.
DermaSweep is a non-invasive exfoliation and skin rejuvenation system. The vacuum system gently lifts the skin against the treatment tip to stimulate blood flow and encourage new cell growth while brushes smooth away dead skin cells to reveal younger, more radiant skin. DermaSweep also features epi-infusion—a system that delivers customized treatment solutions into the skin at the strength and depth required. DermaSweep is ideal for reducing signs of aging, hyperpigmentation, sun damage, acne and surgical scars, and improving skin’s health.
A micro-exfoliation technique that uses a blade to gently exfoliate the dead skin cells and remove fine facial hair. Skin texture will be smoother and softer. Dermaplaning can be performed alone or combined with a chemical peel for maximum results.
We offer a variety of skin peels to help you reveal a fresher complexion. These treatments can be effective for improving the appearance of fine surface wrinkles, superficial blemishes, and pigmentation problems. One or more peels may be recommended, depending on your needs. A custom peel will be blended for you by our aesthetician.
This clinical peel combines the skin polishing effect of microdermabrasion or dermaplaning with the additional benefit of a chemical peel, revealing smoother, glowing, more youthful skin.
An antibacterial treatment utilizing a combination of exfoliation and extraction to eliminate the dead skin cell barrier that retains dirt and oil and leads to breakouts. Helps to treat pigmentation from acne scarring and restores balance to oily skin.
Stimulating and exfoliating, but extremely gentle, the micropeel is ideal for sensitive skin and rosacea.
Delicate exfoliation using a natural botanical papaya extract. So gentle that we recommend it for our Cancer Care Program, to treat dull and sallow skin throughout chemotherapy and radiation.
More in-depth procedure, that removes layers of aged and damaged skin designed to improve the skin’s appearance. Depending on the concentration of the peel, there can be some downtime associated with the treatment.
Our Next Generation Peels:
The Gloss Peel treats rough skin, uneven pigmentation, enlarged pores, and severe acne. An anti-aging combination of TCA, salicylic acid, azelaic acid, and vitamin A refreshes stressed skin to reveal naturally radiant skin. After treatment, patients receive a take-home product kit tailored to maximize the result of treatment.
A chemical peel that improves hyperpigmentation, melasma (dark skin pigmentation often resulting from sun exposure or the hormones from pregnancy), sun damage, and reduces fine lines and wrinkles. During treatment, a maximum-potency combination of acids is applied to the skin. Patients leave the office with this solution on their face to remove at home according to our specific at-home care instructions.
Safe for use on sensitive skin, this light exfoliating peel uses microdermabrasion, salicylic acid, and Retin A to improve sun damage and blemished skin and boost collagen synthesis.
