Skin Treatments

Advanced Medical Facial

Advanced Medical Facials focus on results rather than relaxation; they give extra attention to serious skin problems and concentrate on deep exfoliation to renew the surface of the skin. An Advanced Medical Facial provides a clinical approach to treatment focusing mainly on results.

Benefits:

  • Deep cleanses
  • Hydrates and nourishes
  • Fades sun, age and brown spots
  • Reduces fine lines and wrinkles

An Advanced Medical Facial uses a combination of Chemical Peels, Microdermabrasion, Enzymes and medical-grade skin care products to cleanse, exfoliate, nourish and hydrate the damaged layers of your skin.

We offer a variety of Advanced Medical Facials that are performed in 30-60 minutes and provide results based on your individual needs. During this time you will experience the same steps as most facials that you have done in the past with the exception of using more potent and higher strength medical products. These facials are pain-free and will leave your skin cleansed, hydrated and protected.

During your treatment you will experience

All facials include, deep cleansing, skin analysis, dual exfoliation, professional extractions, customized mask, and some facials include a Microdermabrasion. In addition, you will experience a relaxing massage to the face and décolleté.

As we age, our skin cell turnover rate slows down, which can result in acne, wrinkling and lackluster skin. With our Advanced Medical Facials, physical and chemical forms of exfoliation are utilized, which allows the natural sloughing of dead skin cells to occur at a quicker pace, resulting in more beautiful skin. Skin will immediately be cleaner, brighter and more hydrated.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels resurface the skin using a combination of Glycolic, Salicylic, Lactic, Trichloracetic (TCA), Kojic, Retinol and Phenol acid solutions to improve results for a range of skin conditions including acne, brown spots, loose skin, cell renewal, scarring and wrinkles.

Benefits:

  • Reduces the appearance of acne
  • Fades sun, age and brown spots
  • Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
  • Stimulates cell renewal

Chemical peels exfoliate the uppermost damaged layers of your skin. A peel uses a chemical solution applied to your face that causes the dead skin to slough off and eventually peel. There are a variety of chemical peels available.

During a chemical peel, clients may feel a slight burning sensation that lasts 5-10 minutes. Depending upon the type of peel, a reaction similar to sunburn occurs following the procedure. Peeling usually involves redness followed by scaling that ends within 3-7 days. Results continue to improve over 4-6 weeks. While vibrant and rejuvenated skin will appear with your first application, a series of 3 to 6 peels may be required to achieve your ultimate skin resurfacing goals. When the healing process has completed, you will notice dramatic results to the tone, texture, and feel of your skin.

Chemical Peels will effectively erase imperfections and improve skin tone and texture. Within 7-10 days, this quick and easy in-office treatment will reveal brand new skin that is smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin. Your complexion will be firmer, clearer, healthier, and more youthful.

Yes, a chemical peel is very safe for your skin. You may experience mildly dry, red, or flaking skin for several days or more after your peel.

Before and After

Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning is a safe, simple procedure that uses a scalpel to gently exfoliate the outermost layer of dead skin cells off of the face. Vellus hair, also called peach fuzz, is also removed during the treatment.

Benefits:

  • Allows for greater absorption of skincare products
  • Stimulates circulation giving your face a healthy glow
  • Removes facial vellus hair (peach fuzz)
  • Refines the appearance of pores

Dermaplaning is a manual, non-invasive, skin resurfacing treatment that has the added benefit of removing vellus hair. A special surgical blade is used to smooth and brighten your skin through a very fine, controlled scraping.

After thoroughly cleansing your skin, the esthetician will gently pull an area of your skin taut and use short, swift strokes to scrape off dead skin cells and peach fuzz. This is repeated until the entire treatment area is complete.

Dermaplaning leaves your skin looking radiant with a more even skin tone and smoother texture. All your peach fuzz will be gone, which is why first-timers say their skin has never felt softer.

Dermaplaning is a painless and safe procedure. It can be compared to the sensation of shaving your legs. There are minimal to no side effects and zero downtime. After the treatment, your skin will be highly sensitive to sun exposure and may look pink.

Hydrafacial MD®

The Hydrafacial MD™ is a result-oriented skin treatment that delivers clearer, more hydrated, younger-looking skin immediately.

Yes! HydraFacial MD® is a safe and effective treatment with zero downtime. Many call this the ‘lunchtime facial’ since you can resume normal activity immediately after treatment.

Before and After

IPL Intense Pulsed Light

Non-invasively banishes hyperpigmentation, sun and age spots with Intense Pulsed Light to remove damaged cells at the deepest levels of your skin.

Benefits:

  • Reduces the appearance of acne, sun, age and brown spots
  • Improves skin’s brightness and clarity
  • Stimulates collagen growth

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is a laser technology that delivers a broad spectrum of light beneath the skin’s surface to reverse the signs of sun damage, age spots and hyperpigmentation. The light energy in IPL is absorbed by the pigments in our skin that we don’t like; causing intense heat that damages or destroys the structure that holds the color to ultimately remove sun damage.

During an IPL session, the intense blast of light and heat may be mildly uncomfortable. The discomfort feels like the mild snapping of a rubber band. The number of treatments required depends on the severity of the skin condition. Immediately after treatment you may see the treated spots become slightly darker. The treated area may have a slight sunburned sensation for a few days. It can take up to 3 weeks for the discoloration to slough off. For best results, 3-6 treatments are necessary spaced about one month apart.

Visible results become apparent after just one treatment. In the weeks following, skin is more evenly toned, pore size is reduced and there is a noticeable reduction in the appearance of age spots, discoloration, broken blood vessels, acne, redness and fine lines and wrinkles. The final result after a series of IPL treatments is clearer, younger-looking skin.

The downtime with IPL is dependent on the amount of underlying damaged cells the client may have. The darkened spots can be covered with makeup but require 5-7 days to fully slough off. However the redness will subside in a couple of hours.

Before and After

Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion provides exfoliation for the outer layer of skin, removing dead skin cells and surface imperfections like fine lines and wrinkles. In addition, Microdermabrasion stimulates collagen and helps with elasticity. This treatment makes skin smoother, improves texture and can improve the complexion to look dramatically healthier.

Benefits:

  • Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
  • Fades sun, age and brown spots
  • Reduces the appearance of acne scars
  • Stimulates cell renewal

The skin is cleansed to remove excess oil and dirt. An aesthetician then targets a stream of fine aluminum oxide crystals over the area. The crystals abrade away old, dead skin cells, which the vacuum then picks up with gentle suction. This promotes the growth of collagen and new, rejuvenated skin. Moisturizers and sun block are then applied to the treated area.

Microdermabrasion is a painless, non-invasive treatment that removes dead skin to improve the look and feel of skin. Damaged skin cells and impurities are physically removed from the skin using a either a crystal spray or crystal-tipped wand. A Microdermabrasion for the face typically takes between 30 and 45 minutes, though this can vary somewhat depending on the size of the area being treated.

Microdermabrasion will effectively erase imperfections and improve skin tone and texture. This in-office treatment will reveal brand new skin that is smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin. Your complexion will be firmer, clearer, healthier, and more youthful.

Occasionally clients can experience slight irritation or redness immediately following Microdermabrasion but this typically dissipates very quickly.

Microneedling

Micro-needling creates microscopic breaks in the blood vessels below the skin’s surface to create platelets that release a series of growth factors; this promotes the production of collagen and elastin and is used for reducing scars caused by acne, surgery, or burns. It fades stretch marks, reduces fine lines, evens skin tone and tightens sagging skin.

Benefits:

  • Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
  • Fades scars and stretch marks
  • Evens skin tone
  • Tightens sagging skin

Micro-needling uses tiny needles that are set within a pen shaped device. The technology aims to create a precise injury to the the skin’s surface, inducing the body to respond by forming new tissue layers of elastin and collagen fibers. The skin plumps and thickens in response to this stimulus and the channels made from the micro-needles allow topical serums to be absorbed more effectively through the top layer of skin.

Micro-needling is an in-office treatment that does not require general anesthesia. First, the skin is cleansed and treated with a topical anesthetic to minimize any discomfort. The procedure takes 20-30 minutes, depending on the area treated. Some pressure sensations might be felt however these will not be painful.

Recovery depends on the length of the needle used. The skin will be red for 24-48 hours, similar to a sunburn. The skin may also feel flushed, tight and itchy for the first 24 hours. It can take between 6-8 weeks before visible signs of skin regeneration are seen and the process will continue to evolve over time. Although a single treatment can provide a noticeable result, a series of 2-3 treatments spaced 6-8 weeks apart, is recommended to achieve optimal results.

There is no risk of scarring or permanent color changes.

Plamsa/Fibroblast Treatment

Plasma treatment or soft surgery method is a revolutionary method for a perfect facial rejuvenation. It is important to stress that Plasma is a non-surgical technique where no scalpels or any other surgical instruments are used.
Plasma treatment is an active answer to patient’s/customer’s needs for beauty treatments that provides perfect look but is not based on surgical methods and there are no surgical risks involved. As you know, these risks are anaesthesia, stitches, swelling, long downtime, possible complications, bruises etc. It is important to have in mind that surgical methods are far more expensive and complicated, while the end results are comparable with the soft surgery treatment.

  • No injectable anesthetic required
  • No cutting of the skin
  • No stitches required
  • Very low risk procedure (minimal risk)
  • Minimal side effects and far less downtime
  • Quick and easy procedure
  • Most patients can return to work the same day
  • No thinning of the skin
  • Significant cost saving
  • Eyelid reconstruction, including resolving baggy lower eyelids and excess upper eyelid skin.
  • Skin imperfections and benign lesions, including skin tags and sunspots
  • Improvement in the appearance of scarring, including post-surgery scars, acne scars
  • Diminishing Stretch marks.
  • Tightening loose stomach skin after pregnancy.
  • Lines and wrinkles around the mouth.
  • Facelift and necklift.
  • Smokers lines
  • Skin tightening
  • Scar removal

As Plasma  Skin Tightening is more than a simple tightening treatment, skin is actually removed, so the effects should last as long as they would with invasive surgery.  Like all surgical and cosmetic procedures, the effects of plasma treatment are not entirely permanent as it does not stop any further ageing. But, the positive results should last you years depending on the area treated.  The positive effects of treatment will be noticeable immediately after the first treatment, but the best results will be seen after 4 weeks. For some, an additional treatment may be required after 6 weeks for maximum results.  Additionally, there are lifestyle factors that can prevent the result from lasting as long as they can, such as smoking, alcohol consumption, and prolonged sun exposure. Those planning on treatment should also be aware that their race and genetics can also have an effect of the length of beneficial effects.

The number of treatments required will vary according to the condition being treated, skin’s laxity, the desired degree of correction and the individual’s response to the treatment. Most clients see results instantly and this continues to improve over the course of the following 2-4 weeks. Further treatments can be carried out to get better results, although it is uncommon to require more than two treatments. Appointments must be spaced out 6-8 weeks.

Plasma Skin Tightening has been shown to be a safe treatment due to its non-invasive nature. Still the majority of clients are likely to experience some minor side effects in the 7-10 days following treatment.

There will be some tiny brown marks that have the appearance of minor scabbing, which are carbon crusts, but in 5-7 days these will flake away, revealing new pink skin beneath. Some swelling will be seen (especially in cases of eyelid treatment), but it is likely to only last 3-5 days at most.  Swelling in the eye area is to be expected for a few days following an upper eyelid treatment. To avoid any more serious side effects such as hyperpigmentation, follow the aftercare recommendations given to you by your technician.
