Resurface and Improve Dull Skin
Our advanced skin care treatments include a variety of peels that are designed to promote cell turnover by removing the superficial layer of skin cells as well as stimulate the production of healthy new ones. These advanced skin care treatments assist in minimizing fine lines, even out skin tone, and smooth the surface of the skin for an overall more youthful, refreshed appearance. As a bonus they make your current skin care regimen more effective by allowing serums and moisturizer to penetrate skin more readily.

Microdermabrasion is an advanced exfoliation treatment that polishes your skin, minimizing fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, acne scarring and superficial age spots. It has proven to be a very popular non-surgical cosmetic procedure. Patients with rough skin, uneven pigmentation, and fine lines can have smooth, healthy looking skin with no downtime.
For this treatment we utilize a diamond system that combines the precision of diamonds with the most powerful motor in the market to create the optimal microdermabrasion peel. The dual action of action of exfoliation and suction stimulate the growth of new cells and regenerates collagen and elastin for firmer, healthier skin. This treatment can be used on your face, neck, décolleté, and other areas upon request. The number of treatments recommended for maximum results can range between 5 and 12, spaced from 2 to 3 weeks apart. Maintenance of results requires periodic repeat treatments after the initial regimen is completed. Microdermabrasion may be combined with a light chemical peel to increase the effect.

OBAGI BLUE PEEL
This is a mid level peel, that uses a low concentration of the chemical trichloroacetic acid (TCA) mixed with a special blue base to slowly penetrate the skin. This peel is designed to remove a thin layer of aged, damaged or hyperpigmented skin from the face and other body parts. It is also effective on scars and acne. These dead skin cells are replaced by healthier ones, allowing the skin’s own clarity and tightness to resurface. In addition to the face, The Blue Peel can be performed on the neck, chest, hands, back, arms and legs and is appropriate for most skin types. The process will help to smooth the surface of your skin, improve skin tone and color, diminish wrinkles, as well as shrink pore size.

A deep penetrating salicylic acid peel with a patented microsponge technology, this gently exfoliates the dead cells on the surface of the skin, stimulating the skin’s natural processes to promote regeneration and renewal of the cells, promoting a more youthful appearance.

This light peel is used to restore a more youthful appearance by gently dissolving the outer layers of skin. Glycolic acid which is found in sugar cane and sugar beets is believed to be the most effective Alpha Hydroxy Acid because it has the smallest molecular size, enabling it to better penetrate the skin.

Maintenance of results requires periodic repeat treatments after the initial regimen is completed. Microdermabrasion may be combined with this treatment to increase the effect.

The laser utilized in the procedure is known as the Pro Fractional Laser. It treats problematic areas while keeping the rest of the face intact. The laser can go beyond the skin and deeper into the facial tissue where it generates heat that is necessary for the treatment. Collagen production is boosted by this heat, which in turn alleviates skin problems. The unique quality of the Pro Fractional Laser is its ability to create bridges in the skin where the energy is exclusively delivered. The treatment channels lay alongside untouched areas of the skin – these neutral areas allow the treated skin patches to heal faster.
