Esthetician Skin Care Services

Microdermabrasion

A kind-to-your-skin spa treatment, Microdermabrasion is a non-surgical method of resurfacing your skin utilizing mechanical exfoliation that gently sloughs off dead skin cells and impurities.  Suitable for a whole range of skin problems including fine lines and wrinkles, brown spots, shallow acne scarring, sun damage, hyperpigmentation and congested pores.  With regular treatments Microdermabrasion stimulates collagen production to give your skin the boost that it needs to look glowing and healthy.

Dermaplaning

Also referred to as blading,  this exfoliating treatment is ideal for those who have fine facial hair or “peach fuzz”, sensitive skin, redness or rosacea and noticeable facial veins. You’ll have skin texture that’s smoother and brighter looking with no worries about coarse hair re-growth. It’s instant gratification with on-going benefits as your facial care products and other treatments will penetrate the skin more efficiently following Dermaplaning.

Micropeel

As the lightest, most superficial chemical peel available, Micropeel improves your overall complexion including the texture, condition and color along with minimizing pore size. The 30-minute  procedure removes dead surface cells which continue to invisibly shed for up to two weeks following the peel for optimal results. A pain-free process that allows you to re-apply make-up immediately afterward and return to your daily routine with no outward, tell-tale signs that you even had this amazing peel.

Micropeel Plus

Designed to refine skin texture, smooth fine lines and even skin discoloration, the plus factor is in its ability to reduce the appearance of acne scars or other damage caused by the environment. Salicylic acid stimulates cell turnover and targets the exact areas on the skin that need the most improvement. Expect enhancements such as softening of fine lines, fading of dark spots, reduced pore size and diminished acne scars.  Though there is no downtime, your skin will continue to lose its dead outer layer for 3 to 4 days following the peel, after which a more vibrant you is revealed.

Dr. Ackerman’s Power Facial

Relax and indulge while our medical esthetician performs Dr. Ackerman’s Power Facial.  A specially formulated facial protocol designed to power boost your skins rejuvenation.  First, the skin is exfoliated with medical grade microdermabrasion, then treated with selected glycolic peel before completing with a revitalizing, anti-aging firming cream.  As Dr. Ackerman’s signature procedure, expect nothing less than glowing, refreshed skin that turns back the clock in just 30 minutes.

VI Peel

A medical grade chemical peel that produces significant reversal of skin aging by addressing issues at the cellular level. The VI Peels powerful combination of ingredients work to enhance the tone, texture and clarity of skin, reduce or eliminate age spots, freckles and hyper-pigmentation, soften lines and wrinkles, clear acne skin conditions and stimulates the production of collagen so the result is a firmer, more youthful look.  A restorative treatment as well as an aging preventive method for younger skin. Great for all skin tones from light to dark.

Cosmelan MD

A remarkable treatment that targets skin discolorations and blotchiness as a result of excess sun exposure, aging, hormonal changes or trauma to the skin such as acne. Any of these conditions can disturb the distribution of melanin cells in the skin producing uneven tones and brown spots.  Cosmelan MD depigmentation procedure works quickly to lighten the visible skin discolorations while slowing down the cycle that causes pigment to surface over time. The non-invasive depigmentation action is a two-phase system that is excellent for all skin types.

 Gel Peel

This light chemical peel works hard to exfoliate all types of skin from sensitive to problematic. With its unique molecular structure, Gel Peel ingredients penetrate deep to dissolve excess oil and debris, and ultimately, accelerate the cell renewal process, stimulate collagen production and improve elastin fibers beneath the skins surface. Non-invasive and zero downtime, you’ll notice how much tighter, smoother and incredibly radiant your skin looks with multiple sessions. The perfect treatment to use in conjunction with Microdermabrasion and IPL.

* Eyelash & eyebrow tinting available too

Injectables

Botox

An impressive age-reversing injectable, Botox successfully treats moderate to severe wrinkles and facial creases. It works by blocking signals from the nerves to the muscles. The injected muscle can no longer contract which causes the wrinkles to relax and soften. Most effective on forehead lines, crow’s feet (lines around the eyes) and frown lines. A temporary solution that can last from 4 to 6 months, the procedure is quick, requiring no anesthesia and administered with a fine needle that causes little to no discomfort. Optimal results appear 5 to 7 days following treatment.

Dysport

Very similar to Botox (both are comprised of botulinum toxin type A proteins, however, different manufacturer’s) but Dysport works quicker and costs a bit less, though not significantly.  To decide which is best for you, talk to one of our professionals.

Restylane

Great for smoothing wrinkles or crow’s feet, contouring and volume-enhancement of the lips and to diminish aging lines like the nasolabial folds (nose to mouth lines). The filler is injected following local anesthesia or numbing cream and is a relatively quick procedure depending on the areas being treated. There is no downtime and although Restylane is temporary, the effects can last six months or more.

Juvederm

Like Restylane, this hyaluronic acid filler is a natural complex sugar that bolsters skin elasticity to provide a smooth, supple appearance. Juvederm lifts and adds volume to wrinkles and folds. Before injecting the site, a local anesthesia or numbing cream will be applied. Primary treatment areas are “smile lines” (creases that run from the nose to the corners of the mouth), to fill in hollow places on the face and scars, and to plump up lips. After six to nine months, the biocompatible compound is naturally absorbed into the body and follow-up treatments will be needed.

Sculptra

A dermal filler that stimulates the production of collagen, adding volume and structure to your skin., It is injected deep into skin folds, sunken cheeks or other areas that need smoothing and contouring. Most skin issues respond best  when two to three treatments are given, spaced four to six weeks apart. You’ll notice immediate improvement, however, the real changes begin when the active ingredient in Sculptra begins to stimulate new collagen production. Once this happens, the youthful-looking effects can last as long as two years.

Light & Laser Treatments

IPL PhotoFacial

This  Intense Pulsed Light system penetrates deep beneath the skin’s surface using a broad-spectrum light source that stimulates collagen and new tissue production. An advanced  technology that addresses sun damage, rosacea, enlarged pores,  age spots, wrinkles, even bags under the eyes among other issues on the face, neck and chest. After just one treatment  which typically lasts 30 minutes, you’ll notice a difference, however, more treatments will be necessary to experience maximum  results. The procedure can produce some brief discomfort  but there is no downtime and  following each treatment,  you’ll enjoy seeing a more youthful, even-toned, smoothness to your skin.

Laser Hair Removal

A non-surgical procedure that reduces the growth of hair and eventually eliminates the need for shaving, waxing, bleaching or electrolysis.  Utilizing a combination of energy and heat that destroys the follicle without harming the surrounding skin, several  sessions will be necessary in order to remove hair that surfaces during different growth cycles, generally four to ten weeks apart. With minimal discomfort that disappears almost immediately, the procedure can last anywhere from 15 to 40 minutes depending on the area being treated. The final outcome will save you valuable time and money.  It might even have you wondering why you didn’t get Laser Hair Removal sooner.

CO2 Fractional Skin Resurfacing

This highly sophisticated and very precise laser gently removes top layers of damaged and/or aging skin. In its place, new skin cells emerge supported by laser-activated collagen formation. Fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes and the mouth are smoothed. Deep laugh and frown creases can be softened. Acne scars and some uneven surgical scars are rendered much less apparent to the eyes. Even delicate areas on the lips and eyelids can be rejuvenated. It is also effective on the neck and décolleté area as well. The CO2 Fractional Laser offers up results that are nothing short of remarkable and it can last for years with the proper skin care regimen and sunscreen.
