Microdermabrasion and Chemical Peels
Microdermabrasion and chemical peel treatments improve skin texture, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and help lighten sun damage/age spots.
Microdermabrasion combines a gentle vacuum with either a high-velocity spray of ultra-fine crystals or diamond-dust polishing for exfoliaton. Chemical peels use buffered acids to dissolve a build-up of excess skin cells and are particularly effective in 'homoginizing' skin tone and fading hyperpigmentation. Both treatments reveal fresher skin and stimulate additional skin cell turnover. Basic microdermabrasion or peel treatments take 30-45 minutes and require no recovery time. Your skin will feel refreshed and refined and you'll look ready for work or play. Pre-treating your skin for 1-2 weeks in advance with customized products will produce your best results, and for that reason, I request a consultation prior to any microdermabrasion or peel treatment.
Single microdermabrasion or peel treatment: $65 each
Single microderm or peel treatments produce noticeable results but a strategically designed series of 4-8 treatments alternating or combining microdermabrasion and peels received at 2-3 week intervals provides longer lasting and more noticeable benefits. When you purchase a package of 5 treatments ($325), you'll receive your 6th treatment free. Microdermabrasion and peel treatments require a scheduled consultation prior to treatment. For optimal results from a peel series, two weeks of pre-treatment with specialized products is required and daily use of sunscreen.
Microcurrent and LED Treatments
Microcurrent and LED can be used to enhance the effectiveness of any
treatment or as powerful science-based stand-alone technologies for lifing and
toning facial musculature and rejuvenatinging complexions.
Microcurrent and LED treatments can be used to increase product penetration and thus the effectiveness of any skin treatment, or can be the centerpiece technology for facial rejuvenation. Microcurrent uses a very low level of current to stimulate facial muscles and improve product penetration. LED treatments utilize red, blue, and combinations of red, blue and near-infra-red light waves that penetrate the skin to specific depths based on the color of the light used, and stimulates skin cell respiration and regeneration. Blue LED is particularly effective in the treatment of acne as the blue wavelength reaches the depth of the sebaceous pores and helps kill the acne bacteria. Single LED treatments are $20 when added to facials. Stand-alone treatments are $30 each but when purchased as a series of 5 treatments ($150), the 6th treatment is free. For maximum results, these treatments should be scheduled 2 per week. A single microcurrent treatment is $65 but to get the most from this technology, twice-weekly treatments for 4 weeks are recommended. When you purchase a 4 week treatment series (8 treatments) for $520, you'll receive 4 free monthly maintenance appointments (a $260 value!).
