Intense Pulse Light (IPL) photofacial enhance the appearance of your skin by reversing early signs of aging, including redness from broken capillaries or rosacea, hyperpigmentation from sun damage such as age spots and freckles, poor skin texture and tone, and fine lines and wrinkles. IPL can be used to address these issues in the skin on the face, neck, chest, hands, and arms.
Unlike lasers which are focused light, IPL uses a broad-spectrum of light that penetrates the skin without ablating the epidermis. The heat generated by IPL generates new collagen production and connective tissue leading to a thicker and healthier epidermis and dermis. IPL treatments take 20-30 minutes and there is no downtime. IPL can be an excellent, non-ablative tool for making your skin look its best.
Not all microneedling devices are created equal! SkinPen was the first FDA cleared microneedling device. SkinPen works by creating microscoptic injury to the epidermis and dermis of the skin, increasing collagen production which helps improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, shrink enlarged pores and improve acne scarring. SkinPen can be used as a delivery with PRP to create a PRP facial.
SkinPen is performed in a series of 3-4 treatments spaced 3-4 weeks apart. Minimal discomfort and downtime and safe for all skin types.
Vivace RF Microneedling
The Vivace is the latest generation of radio-frequency microneedling devices that can deliver both immediate and long-term results with minimal pain and downtime. Unlike prior generation devices, Vivace uses extremely precise, robotically controlled needles to penetrate the skins layers to a depth not possible with laser devices, thus allowing for more energy to be safely delivered. The heat from RF energy stimulates new collagen production and is highly effective in correcting facial wrinkles, fine lines and improving skin tone and tightness. Commonly used on the face, neck, hands and body. Vivace can be used to treat all skin types including the additional use of blue or red light therapy for collagen stimulation and to treat active acne or acne scarring.
Typically done in a series of 3-4 treatments spaced 3-4 weeks apart. Vivace can also be performed with PRP to further enhance results. Vivace can also be combined with our new CO2 laser for an aggressive skin rejuvenation protocol.

Everything old is new again, and chemical peels are experiencing a rebirth of sorts as growing numbers of skin care professionals return to these treatments to address a wide range of skin concerns and conditions. Chemical peels can be customized for each individual to correct acne, age spots, discoloration, uneven skin tone, fine lines, freckles, and melasma. We utilize customizable TCA peels, Perfect Peel, VI Peel and ZO enzyme peels. Depending upon the type of chemical peel, a reaction similar to sunburn occurs following the procedure. Peeling usually involves redness, followed by scaling that ends within three to seven days. Mild peels may be repeated at three to four-week intervals until the desired effect is achieved.
Dermaplaning uses a fine blade to gently remove dead skin cells and fine hair (peach fuzz) off the epidermis. The process of blade-based exfoliation makes your skin glow, unclogs pores and removes peach fuzz. Quick and relatively painless, this treatment improves your skins health. Dermaplaning is a great treatment to do before a peel or facial to enhance results.
