Hydrafacial is the only hydradermabrasion procedure that combines cleansing, extraction and hydration simultaneously, resulting in clearer, more beautiful skin with minimal downtime. You can expect radiance immediately after! Results last approximately one to four weeks post-treatment. This procedure is recommended once every one to three months for optimal results.
Chemical Peels improve wrinkles, scaring, and acne by improving the texture of the skin. Approximately 48 hours post-procedure, patients will experience light to moderate peeling as the outermost layer of the skin peels off, allowing the skin to regenerate new tissue.
After peeling begins, patients may experience light to moderate dryness and flakiness depending on the strength of the peel. Prescription retinols should be avoided for the first 10 days. Gentle cleansers and moisturizers may be used, as well as makeup as tolerated.

Microneedling Surgery (with or without PRP)
Microneedling procedures use small needles to prick the skin, stimulating collagen production for firmer, smoother, more toned skin. Microneedling is used primarily on the face, neck and chest to treat wrinkles and acne scarring. Additionally, platelet-rich-plasma (PRP) can be used to enhance results and reduce down-time by using growth factors from the patient’s blood. For optimal results, 3 to 5 treatments in 6-week increments are recommended.
Post-procedure, patients may experience sun sensitivity and light flaking - makeup, exfoliating products, and the sun should be avoided for the first 48 hours. Sunscreen (50+ SPF) is encouraged for the first two weeks. Our hydroplump serum or Biotherapy may be used the night of your treatment and should be continued for the next seven days as needed.
Laser Treatments for Blood Vessels and Facial Redness
Laser treatments with our Spectrum Nd:YAG laser are used in series over time to decrease the appearance of redness in the skin. The blood vessels in the skin are targeted and zapped away gradually. Over time, the reduction in dilated vessels will not only eliminate redness and flushing, but will soften the bumpy texture of the skin.
Post-procedure instructions are specific to each laser treatment, but general rules apply. For instance, mild swelling, tenderness and/or redness is expected, in which case ice packs or gel packs in 10-15 minute intervals are encouraged. Vaseline may be applied to affected areas twice daily as needed. Avoid cosmetics, heaving lifting/straining, and sun exposure.
We offer tattoo removal services in increments of eight weeks to ensure optimal time for healing and precision.
Upon completion of a tattoo laser removal treatment, patients may experience minor discomfort, scabbing, crusting and redness lasting 24-48 hours. Continue to wash the affected area with soap and water twice daily until all crusting is healed. Apply bacitracin ointment twice daily for two weeks.
Radiofrequency microneedling uses a 3-dimensional approach for tissue volumization. This procedure delivers electrical energy to stimulate collagen production, which helps to diminish the appearance of wrinkles, scars, or textural changes.
After this procedure, patients can expect the treatment area to be red for approximately 24 hours.

Kybella uses injections to diminish the appearance of submental chin fat. Spaced about 4 weeks apart, multiple treatments are needed to reduce the appearance of unwanted fat pockets.

Spider Vein Removal (sclerotherapy) with Asclera
Asclera is an FDA approved injectable medication used to reduce spider veins. It is injected directly into the vein to cause inflammation and eventually close the vessel.
Many sessions are required, and patients may experience bruising discoloration after treatments.
Microneedling with PRP for Hair Growth
Platelet-rich-plasma (PRP), is injected into the scalp to help stimulate hair growth. We use a carefully formulated topical medication, injections, and nutritional supplements to thicken and replenish thinning hair.

Botox (and other neuromodulators)
Botox treatments are injectable treatments used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Botox is the name brand one of several brands of neuromodulators or neurotoxins. These medicines are used to reduce the movement of facial muscles which cause wrinkles! Common areas of botox injection include forehead, around the eyes, the eyebrows, the lips and the chin. These injections last about 3 months and are a very safe way to reduce the appearance of wrinkles that make you look more angry or sad than you really are!
Other brands that we carry include Xeomin.
Hyaluronic Acid Fillers to Improve Lines and Volume Loss
Fillers are non-surgical hyaluronic acid (HA) injectable treatments designed to add volume to the specific areas of the face. Common procedure areas include lips, cheeks, parentheses lines, marionette lines, and more! HA fillers are used in so many areas and in so many capacities it is hard to summarize.
HA fillers give instant results and last 6 months to 2 years. It is important that you seek out experienced board-certified injectors for these treatments as they can be dangerous in the hands of unexperienced injectors.
