Skin Treatment

Skin Treatment

Evaluation of the skin to determine the best approach to treat each an individual’s needs. Set up a treatment plan with suggestions of medical grade skincare products to promote a positive outcome and skin maintenance. Explain pre and post care before more invasive treatments are done for full comprehension of procedures.


Helps to maintain healthy skin through the seasonal changes, as well as regulate skin issues such as acne, acne rosacea, dullness, and clogged pores.

Microdermabrasion Facials

A crystal free approach that furthers the exfoliation process and promotes skin cell turnover. Excellent for anti aging, congested skin with blackheads, minor scarring, Keratosis Polaris(small bumps on the back of the arms), and extremely dry skin.

Chemical Peels

Light to medium depth peels that target specific needs. Conditions range from Melasma and hyper pigmentation, acne and light acne scaring, uneven skin texture and fine lines. Peels can also keep skin conditions in balance. Very mild to moderate peeling can occur depending on which type of peel is used and can be determined with a consultation.


Whether it is to define your brows or have facial hair growing where it shouldn’t, appointments can be added to a facial or set up individually.

Lash and Brow Tinting

Defines brows and lashes that are too light or have grey in them. This works great if you have allergies to mascara or if your are going to the beach and don’t want to worry about raccoon eyes. Lashes can also be tinted a week before Permanent makeup eyeliner so you don’t need to worry about wearing mascara afterwards. Brows can be tinted to match hair color. Color generally lasts 4-6 weeks. Appointments can be added to facial or a microdermabrasion appointment or setup individually.


SkinPen® by Bellus Medical is clinically proven to improve the appearance of facial acne scars for people aged 22 and above in all skin type. This device is the first ever cleared by the FDA.

Bellus Medical’s SkinPen® microneedling device causes controlled micro-injuries that stimulate the body’s natural wound healing process, while minimizing cell damage. More specifically, SkinPen starts the three-phase wound-repair process:

Phase 1: Inflammation. Piercing the skin triggers your immune system to disinfect the wounds, remove debris, increase blood flow, and create new tissue.
Phase 2: Proliferation. The wound is re-built with new granulation cells. Plus a new network of blood vessels develops.
Phase 3: Remodeling. New dermal tissues and blood vessels replace the wound.
This is a new innovative treatment that acts like fractional resurfacing without all the swelling from the heat of the laser and allows for a quicker recovery. It is also called (CIT) collagen induction therapy and (PCI) per cutaneous collagen induction. This treatment is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation procedure that uses micro needles that penetrate into the skin to cause a controlled injury. Microneedling helps to improve textural issues, fine lines, scarring, pore size, and stretch marks.

Vivace Microneedle RF

The Vivace is a next generation radio-frequency microneedling device that delivers immediate and long-term results, no downtime experience. The minimally-invasive treatment stimulates the natural production of collagen and is shown to be effective in alleviating facial wrinkles, fine lines, and and toning the face, neck, hands, and body. Unique in its design, depth of treatment, precision and holistic approach, the Vivace is truly best-in-class.
Other microneedling rollers and pens can lead to tearing, pain and variable patient results. The Vivace’s 36 insulated, gold-tip needles and robotic step motor create fast and even insertions into the skin. The robotic depth settings offer 31 precise, multilevel adjustments down to a depth of 3.5mm at .1mm increments — more precise than any other RF microneedling device.

The chevron-patterned 70-watt circuitry RF distributes heat evenly and delivers skin tightening, reducing redness, hot spots, burning and discomfort that can occur with other devices.

Vivace delivers more power than any other technology.

With the Vivace, a provider can treat a broader array of skin types and tones with absolute customization. Depths can be adjusted at precise increments from .5mm to 3.5mm. A variable pulse duration of 100ms to 800ms means the length of time the needle is engaged with tissue can be better controlled. Lastly, choose red or blue light therapy for additional collagen stimulation and to target acne causing bacteria respectfully.

What sets Vivace apart is the overall Vivace Experience™ — the treatment creates clean and open microchannels allowing skin to best receive the benefits of serums and recovery protocols that create optimal results and faster recovery. Use the specially formulated soothing mask and boost serum to complete the Vivace Experience™ .

Laser Treatments

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)
The Spectrum’s IPL can be used for a myriad of different treatments including hair reduction, acne reduction and removal of vascular and pigmented lesions. The Spectrum’s IPL includes 4 broad band filters. Each filter provides non-coherent energy that targets specific chromophores. The treatments are non-ablative and gentle by nature. The Spectrum IPL performance provides efficacy and versatility leaving patients with healthy and more youthful skin.

Laser Hair Removal
Unwanted body hair is a problem that everyone experiences. This is why hair removal has become the #1 non-invasive aesthetic procedure. The Spectrum uses an 810nm diode laser to remove the permanently reduce unwanted body hair. The pulse repetition rate can be adjusted up to 10-pulse per second allowing both small and large areas to be treated fast and effectively. The 810nm-diode can be used on all skin types.

Vascular Reduction
Why Suffer needlessly with unsightly veins on the face and legs? The Spectrum’s long pulsed nd:Yag laser will diminish the appearance of existing veins. The 1064nm laser light is delivered through the skin and into the vein. The energy is absorbed and the vein walls collapse and seal shut. Eliminating veins with the Spectrum 1064nm laser is quick and effective for most individuals. Treatments work best on smaller veins (3mm or less).

Laser Skin Resurfacing
In today’s society people are eating healthier and exercising more. They desire the to remove fine lines and pigmented lesions that hinder their appearance. The Erbium Yag laser uses a less invasive approach for treating superficial wrinkles and sun damaged skin. An Erbium Yag treatment is gentle and safe, and can be used on the neck, chest, hands and face with minimal risk.

Tattoo Removal Q-Switched
The total number of Americans that have at least one tattoo exceeds 45 million. For multiple reasons, body art may become undesirable. A Q-switched laser is the most frequently used laser for tattoo removal. The laser “fractures” the pigment into particles small enough for the ink to be removed using the body’s natural filtering system. The Spectrum’s Q-switched 1064nm/532nm laser can effectively remove an array of tattoo ink colors with minimal risk. (Multiple treatments maybe required)

A consultation can be made to go over all the details for treatments and to determine how many treatments are needed for each individual’s needs.
