Dermapen Before and After Stretch Marks

A Micro-needling treatment also known as collagen induction therapy, Dermapen makes fractional micro-wounds in the skin to stimulate healthy growth of new tissue without the heat and trauma from lasers or other devices. Following this treatment, your body will stimulate collagen production to tighten, lift and rejuvenate the skin as well as reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Dermapen also helps to minimize pores, stretch marks, and scarring, such as keloid and surgical and acne scars. A series of 3-6 treatments every 4-6 weeks is necessary for optimal results, to allow proper recovery and to avoid over-stimulation. Once you see your desired results, just 1 or 2 treatments per year are recommended for maintenance.

Chemical Peels and Facials

Silk Peel

A simple, non-invasive procedure combining precision exfoliation and evacuation along with dermal infusion, a Silk Peel stimulates new cell growth and addresses specific skin conditions such as acne, aging, fine lines and hyperpigmentation. Your skin will also feel softer and fresher, allowing makeup to go on much more evenly.


A manual exfoliation that removes the outermost layer of dead skin cells, dermaplane treatment immediately improves skin tone and texture. Removing the top layer of the epidermis not only allows for greater penetration of skin care products, but it also gets rid of all the unwanted fine vellus hair, leaving the skin more vibrant and supple.

Micro Peel

This multi-step treatment first involves either dermaplaning or the use of enzymes to remove the dull, dead layer of skin cells, followed by the application of a highly concentrated, customizable acid peel to remove debris from the pores. This two-step treatment achieves deeper and more significant results for improving skin tone, texture and appearance.

Modified Jessner’s Peel

These peels are used for treating various skin types to even skin tone, soften the depth of surface lines, refine pores, and control oil and breakouts. This peel, used with or without the skin-lightening agent hydroquinone, can be layered to effectively treat hyperpigmentation from sun damage, inflammation and hormonal changes, providing more even skin tone and color. All treatments are recommended in a series for optimal results.

Ultra Peel

This peel is specially formulated to treat dehydrated maturing skin, but is also very effective for treating melasma, sun damage, asphyxiated (dry on surface, oily underneath) acne, and menopausal skin. Depending on the number of layers applied, you will experience mild to moderate exfoliation, resulting in plump, hydrated and luminous skin. The most dramatic results are achieved with a series of 6 treatments.

Therapeutic Masks/Peels

Therapeutic masks provide options for every skin type and condition. Keratolytic action, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity, and deep hydration are all possible with advanced clinical masks including Oat Milk for Hydration, Papaya for Revitalization, Salicylic for Clarifying, and Pumpkin for Retexturizing.

Sensi Peel

Ideal for patients with sensitive skin or those who have never experienced a chemical peel before, the Sensi Peel will strengthen and brighten the skin while helping to treat sun damage and other forms of hyperpigmentation. This multi-faceted treatment also provides anti-inflammatory, anti-acne, and antibacterial action, making it an excellent choice to help calm rosacea, as redness and inflammation can subside substantially after treatment.

Oxygenating Treatment

This is an excellent treatment for sluggish, tired skin stressed by environmental factors. This chemical-free treatment helps the skin to oxygenate on its own through a three-step process. Treatment also helps stimulate cutaneous oxygen and circulation, rejuvenating sluggish, stressed skin as it draws oxygen to the skin’s surface, resulting in a radiant, healthy complexion.

Eye & Lip Peel

A medium depth peel specifically formulated for treating fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and photo-aging on the sensitive areas around the eyes and lips. This peel requires only minimal downtime with amazing result

VI Peel

Dubbed the “Peel of the Stars,” this unique combination peel contains a synergistic blend of highly effective ingredients that are suitable for all skin types. This peel provides dramatic results with virtually no pain, no skin preparation and little downtime. In about a week, you’ll begin to see improvement in skin tone and clarity, with fewer wrinkles and age spots. This peel is very effective on décolleté and hands, and is a highly effective acne treatment for teens and adults aged 12 and above.

3-Step Peel

This potent stimulating peel delivers long-lasting benefits beyond the temporary superficial improvements seen with ordinary peels, plus it’s suitable for any skin type or color. Designed for acne, melasma, sun damage, fine lines, texture/roughness, large pores, and dullness, this medium depth peel shows remarkable results with minimal irritation. An at-home, one time application of retinol creme and calming creme boosts recovery, helping to ensure beautiful results and promoting softer, smoother and healthier looking skin.

Note: It is recommended that skin be conditioned with medical grade cosmeceuticals for at least 4-6 weeks prior to treatment.

Trichloroacetic Acid/Controlled Depth Peel

TCA (trichloroacetic acid) is a non-toxic chemical used to perform therapeutic skin peels. It causes the damaged outer layer of skin cells to dehydrate—and then peel off—over a period of several days to one week. The TCA peel combined with a ZO® custom-designed pH-balanced peel base helps guide the treatment area, and is enriched with skin lipid supplements, inflammatory modulators, and antioxidants. This unique blend helps to minimize skin redness, replenish skin barrier function, and protect newly exposed skin cells from damaging oxidative stress after the peel.

When the surface skin peels away, it exposes a new layer of undamaged skin with a smoother texture and more even skin tone. This peel is an excellent choice to reduce brown spots, age spots, uneven skin pigmentation, and the appearance of melasma while improving the texture of leathery, sun-damaged skin and reducing deep lines and wrinkles.

*Note: It is mandatory for skin to be conditioned with medical grade cosmeceuticals for at least 6-8 weeks prior to treatment for best results

Medical Grade Skincare Products

Do you know why some skincare products are only available at a doctor’s office? Because the active ingredients in them are more potent. This means they do their job: reducing fine lines, erasing age spots, and improving skin tone and texture—a lot more quickly and effectively than over the counter options. We’ll be happy to discuss any of the options below at a personal consultation.
