Microdermabrasion Facial

Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive mechanical exfoliation of the skin using a diamond tip to remove the outermost layers of the epidermis for superficial skin resurfacing. We use a safe diamond microdermabrasion system to gently remove the upper layers of the skin to regenerate collagen and stimulate healthy cell renewal for deeper more effective skin care product penetration. This treatment is used to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, tone, texture, acne scarring and diminish pigmentary irregularities in the skin for a brighter more youthful appearance with no downtime. Microdermabrasion can be used as a stand-alone treatment, or in combination with other modalities on various areas of the body to achieve desired results. Intensity can vary from light exfoliation to mild resurfacing dependent upon your skin’s individual needs and combination of services in one sitting. (1 hr)

** Chemical Peel, Microdermabrasion, or other Aesthetic Procedures may be added to your treatment dependent on skin type, skin condition and skin needs to achieve optimal results.

Dermaplaning Facial

Dermaplaning is a specialized physical exfoliation of the skin for anyone looking to rid their skin of unwanted vellus (peach fuzz) hair to reveal a healthy glow. Dermaplaning will help to smooth fine lines and wrinkles, even skin tone and texture, and lighten pigmentation without the use of chemical exfoliants or peeling agents. This simple and safe procedure utilizes a scalpel to scrape off the outer most epidermal layers of the skin while removing unwanted facial hair to reveal beautiful, glowing, supple skin. Dermaplaning works effectively in treating melasma, and can be used to clear acne prone skin, by removing excessive buildup to allow oxygen into the pores, lighten post inflammatory pigment, and reduce pore size. This is a perfect anti-aging treatment for even the most sensitive skin types like Rosacea skin. The Dermaplaning Facial can be used as a stand-alone treatment, or in combination with other cosmetic modalities. Your skin will look and feel baby smooth, hydrated and glowing.  (1 hr)
