Microdermabrasion is the most natural way to regain the fresh appearance of skin without chemicals, lasers, or periods of irritation and redness. Microdermabrasion utilizes crystals to finely resurface superficial layers of the skin. When a more aggressive treatment is necessary, vacuum pressure can be increased to evenly penetrate into deeper layers of the skin.

Microdermabrasion is the safest and most effective method available for wrinkle reduction, skin exfoliation and pigment correction. Our microdermabrasion skin care equipment rejuvenates the skin by removing the dull, lifeless, sun-damaged epidermis and stimulating the production of new skin cells and collagen.

Chemical Peels

Glycolic Acid Peels – Glycolic Acid products are derived from sugar cane. They work by removing outer layers of dead skin cells and promoting the production of elastin and collagen. Exfoliation of the skins top layer also unclogs pores, which helps reduce the occurrence of acne. Also effective for adults as a treatment for Rosacea.
Session Information: For 40 minutes, 30% mild to moderate peeling at $60.00 or 40% mild to moderate peeling at $65.00 or 50% medium to deep peeling at $70.00

Salicylic Acid Peels 30% – Salicylic Acid is Beta Hydroxyl Acid derived from the bark of a Willow tree. Beta Hydroxy has a larger molecule than Alpha Hydroxy on the skin surface, allowing it to more-effectively penetrate and exfoliate the pores. It helps slow down shedding of the cells inside the follicles, preventing clogging. Salicylic Acid breaks down the blackheads and whiteheads. Also effective as a Rosacea treatment for adults.
Session Information: 45 minutes at $65.00

Lactic Acid Peels 40% – Lactic Acid Peels are derived from milk. They are the mildest form of chemical peels. Lactic Acid works by dissolving the glue-like substance that binds the outermost skin cells together. Old skin is sloughed off revealing fresh, new skin. This is a very mild AHA peel – results are not as intense as Glycolic or Salicylic Peels.
Session Information: 45 minutes at $65.00

Telsa High Frequency Intense Pulse Light Treatment – This treatment removes all bacteria from under the skin surface by using high, intense light and can be added to any chemical peel procedure.
Session Information: 5 minutes at $25.00
