A chemical peel is a technique used to improve the appearance of the skin on the face, neck or hands. A chemical solution is applied to the skin that causes it to exfoliate and eventually peel off. The new, regenerated skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin. The new skin is also temporarily more sensitive to the sun.As we age, dead skin cells do not slough off as easily as when we are younger, causing the skin to appear dull. Light, medium and deep chemical peels are a popular nonsurgical cosmetic procedure used to peel away the skin’s top layer to improve sun-damaged, unevenly pigmented and wrinkled skin. Improving the evenness of color and texture in your skin creates a youthful look and restores a healthy, luminous and radiant appearance.
Dermaplaning This process removes the micro-thin top layer of skin and unwanted facial hair is ideal for those with oily skin, sun damage, hyper-pigmentation, or bothersome facial hair. While sharp enough to scrape away hair and dead skin, the dermaplaning blade gently avoids nicks and cuts. The sensation compares to running a credit card long one's skin. This promotes softer skin texture as well as removing unwanted hair. This popular treatment may also be combined with a facial.
Dermaplaning is an effective way of exfoliation. Using a blade we shave, or remove, the dead skin cells from the epidermis. Along with exfoliating, dermaplaning also helps remove the unwanted velus hairs from the face. Usually, you can see a difference after the first treatment. While this is an aggressive treatment, dermaplaning does not break the capillaries on the face.
Because Dermaplaning is a quick procedure with few to no adverse effects, it has quickly gained popularity among cosmetic medical providers across the country. Using a scalpel and a delicate touch, the provider simply abrades the surface of the skin using light feathering strokes. This is a great treatment to offer to patients who are pregnant or nursing who want a deep exfoliation, but are not allowed to use peeling agents on their skin because of the risk that the chemicals will be absorbed into the blood stream, and may be transferred to the fetus or the child. It is also a first choice for patients who have excess vellus hair on the skin. This hair often causes a buildup of dirt and oils in the follicles, so removing the hair gives the patient healthier looking skin.
An infusion into micro-channels of the skin with microneedling that deliver various antioxidants deep into the skin.
The result is tighter pores, smoother and brighter skin.
Performed with micro-injections, medical grade vitamins, peptides, growth factors, stem cells, amino acids and minerals are infused into the dermal layer of skin.
The results are stimulated collagen and elastin production, with glow and tightening of the pores and overall complexion.Performed with micro-injections, medical grade vitamins, peptides, growth factors, stem cells, amino acids and minerals are infused into the dermal layer of skin.

Microcurrent, a popular treatment for aging skin, uses low level electrical current to trigger the body’s natural skin enhancement chemicals at a cellular level, giving skin therapists an effective tool against the signs of skin aging. While alternative medicine practitioners use it for injury recovery, skin therapists note that it provides firming and toning benefits that continue to improve with subsequent treatments.
Microcurrent can be performed to achieve the following benefits:
Some clinical studies have shown that after twenty days of Microcurrent treatments, collagen and elastin production increases and blood circulation improves. Scientists have also found that Microcurrent facelift treatments trigger the body’s production of amino acids and Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP). Both of these accelerate cell repair and promote healthier cell production
Microdermabrasion is one of the more recent skin-care techniques to have crossed over from Hollywood to the mainstream. It's being advanced as an "instant facelift" -- an effective alternative to costlier and more invasive procedures like plastic surgery, chemical peels and Botox injections. Recently, more and more men are trying it, instead of pursuing cosmetic surgery.
Microdermabrasion is a noninvasive, skin resurfacing procedure that gently exfoliates or polishes away the top layer of dead skin cells, while stimulating collagen growth, to reveal healthy new skin that looks and feels smoother. Fine lines, blemishes, dull skin and sun spots can be improved, especially with regular treatments. Products such as moisturizers, creams and lotions are more easily absorbed and therefore more effective after microdermabrasion treatment. This is a painless, low-risk skin treatment that can be added to your beauty routine.
When to Consider microdermabrasion
Micro-needling is an anti-aging, non-laser, non-surgical procedure that targets numerous skin conditions and issues. Micro-needling uses a “pen” with tiny needles to make small perforations on the skin which then allow the “injured” skin to grow new, more vibrant skin. The process stimulates your skin’s natural ability to heal itself and in the process produces collagen and elastin. This repair process begins almost immediately and results in a thicker dermis and softened wrinkles or scars. There is no tissue destruction with micro needling. The small channels in the epidermis close very quickly and the skin begins a healing response right away. Depending on the depth of the skin defect, you may see only redness or you may experience some pinpoint bleeding which stops almost immediately.
A minimally invasive procedure with little to no downtime that utilizes dissolvable sutures to rejuvenate skin. PDO threads can be used to subtly lift saggy skin, reduce wrinkles, crepiness, scars and cellulite, all while producing collagen.
An all natural treatment using one's own blood to produce collagen and heal wounds.
PRF can treat under eye and cheek hollows, scalp and hair thinning, and all areas of skin to achieve improved elasticity.
A skin tag, also known as an acrochordon, cutaneous papilloma, cutaneous tag, fibroepithelial polyp, fibroma molluscum, fibroma pendulum, papilloma colli, soft fibroma, and Templeton skin tag, is a small tag of skin which may have a peduncle (stalk) - they look like a small piece of soft, hanging skin.
As skin tags are usually harmless, people tend to have them removed for aesthetic or cosmetic reasons. Sometimes large ones, especially in areas where they may rub against something, such as clothing, jewelry or skin, may be removed because the area becomes frequently irritated. An individual may have a large skin tag removed from his face or under her arms in order to make shaving easier.
Cauterization - the skin tag is burned off using electrolysis (heat is used to remove them)
Skin tags can appear on any part of the surface of the body (skin), but most typically exist in areas where skin may rub against skin, such as the:
