The purpose of this treatment is to generate new collagen and skin tissue for smoother, firmer and more toned skin. This treatment is performed with a needling device which resembles a pen that has tiny micro-needles. The tiny microneedles cause controlled injuries to the skin which stimulates collagen and elastin production. Treatment is intended for wrinkles, acne scars, dark spots, uneven skin tone, large pores and stretch marks. Numbing cream is applied to the skin making the treatment painless. You may experience redness, mild bruising and swelling at the treatment site, which are temporary side effects that subside within a few days. We use hyaluronic serum during the treatment which is well known for its ability to alleviate dry skin, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and speed up healing. PRP (platelet rich plasma) can also be used during treatment. PRP requires your blood to be drawn and the plasma to be extracted. PRP contains a high concentration of growth factors, which encourage tissue regeneration and healing. Results will become visible about 3-4 weeks following treatment; as the collagen-building process continues, the skin will improve. Treatments can be performed at 4-6 week intervals. More than 1 treatment is required to get desired results.

A chemical peel is a skin-resurfacing procedure in which a chemical solution is applied to the skin to remove the top layers. The skin that grows back after a chemical peel is smoother and younger looking. A chemical solution is applied to the skin that causes it to exfoliate and eventually peel off. A chemical peel can be done alone or in combination with other treatments such as dermaplaning or microneedling.
We offer a superficial peel, Salicylic Acid and a medium peel, TCA:
Salicylic Acid is extremely beneficial to those with clogged pores and acne. It also has anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties. Salicylic is very effective at treating dark spots, oily skin, rough skin and mild photo damage. Peeling may or may not occur with Salicylic. The absence of peeling does not mean this acid is not working. Peeling is not necessary for skin changes to occur. Salicylic is well tolerated on all skin types. 3-6 or more treatments are required for effectiveness. Treatments can be done weekly or bi-weekly.
Salicylic Chemical Peel $120 per treatment
*Treatment packages available at discounted prices.
TCA is considered the gold standard of all peels. This highly regarded acid is perfect for treating blemishes, skin tone irregularities, texture problems, age spots, dark spots, fine wrinkles and acne scaring. TCA is well tolerated on all skin types. Darker skin requires skin preconditioning for a minimum of 2 weeks. Preconditioning includes topical agents such as retinoids (vitamin A) or hydroxyl acids (glycolic, lactic and citric acids) that will thin the stratum corneum. This accelerates the penetration of the acid into the skin and increases the speed of wound healing – all of which reduce the risk of post inflammatory hyperpigmentation in darker skin. 3 to 6 or more treatments are needed for effectiveness. Treatments can be done bi-weekly or monthly.
TCA Chemical Peel $150 per treatment
*Treatment packages available at discounted prices.

Dermaplaning is a manual skin exfoliation treatment that removes dead skin and facial hair.
Dermaplaning removes excess fine hairs which are known for trapping the dirt, oil and dead skin cells in your pores that are the main cause of acne and blemishes. Dermaplaning leaves your skin brighter, and healthier giving you that “baby smooth” look and feel. Your skin will instantly be smoother and glowing. Dermaplaning does not change the structure of your hair follicle. Your hair will grow back exactly the same color and thickness as it was previously. It is safe on all skin types. Dermaplaning is recommended every 3-4 weeks. This is a great treatment to have done with microneedling.

Tattoo Camouflage of Stretch Marks
Tattoo camouflage for stretch mark and scars is a tattooing method in which scars and stretch marks are
camouflaged with different color flesh tone pigments, its purpose is to disguise the area that is missing
pigment or color. This treatment also uses microneedling, which creates microscopic punctures in the
damaged tissue. This stimulates collagen production and helps blood capillaries reach the surface.
Pigments matched to your particular skin are injected to make the scar color blend with the surrounding
skin. The result is improved skin tone (color), smoothed texture and a reduction of the three
dimensional appearance of the stretch mark or scar. There is minimal pain after the procedure, allowing
you to return immediately to your life. This treatment is only effective on white superficial stretch
marks. If you have dark or indented (deep) stretch marks microneedling would be required. At least 2 or
more treatments are needed for the best result.
