    Dermapen is a fractional micro-needling device that works to tighten, lift and rejuvenate the skin.  It’s effective in reducing fine lines and wrinkles, stretch-marks, surgical and acne scars,  Fractional micro-needling or collagen induction therapy (CIT) uses needles to pierce the skin in a controlled and precise pattern.  Compared to other rejuvenation treatments, Dermapen is safe on any skin type, has short treatment time and minimal discomfort with vitually no downtime.  Dermapen:  a revolutionary break-through for beautiful skin.


    Using unique fine crystal technology we remove the outermost layer of dry, dead skin cells by gently and precisely exfoliating the surface of your skin. For the best results we recommend a series of treatments that span over several weekly visits. The results are fresher, younger looking skin.

    Derma Genesis® Microdermabrasion uses medical grade crystals to remove the dead, outermost layer of skin. This skin exfoliation process reveals the new, living skin cells that are soft, smooth, and receptive to nutrients.

    Microdermabrasion is used to treat and/or diminish:

    • Blackheads and whiteheads
    • Fine lines and wrinkles
    • Sun damaged skin
    • Acne prone skin
    • Superficial age spots
    • Hyperpigmentation
    • Oily skin
    • Dry or patchy skin

    SkinMedica Vitalize Peel

    The Vitalize Peel is a unique break-through formulation of mild acids that provide a complete, consistent and safe peel with no “downtime” and predictable results for all skin types. This non-invasive peel creates a softer, smoother younger looking complexion.

    Used in combination with Microdermabrasion or alone, these unique plant and sugar acids break down the chemical bond of the intercellular glue that holds the dead skin cell layer together. Removing the top layer of skin (where most visible wrinkles are) allows the healthier skin cells to come through, giving a smoother texture to your skin and a glowing and radiant appearance. Your skin will look and feel more vibrant as sun damage is reduced and premature aging is addressed.

    Micro Peel

    In a unique three-step process your skin becomes refined and firmer, sun-damaged skin cells are cast off, oil and congested pores are unblocked.

    We remove a micro-thin top layer of skin, which frees the skin of dead cellular build-up. This is followed by the application of an AHA appropriate for your special skin sensitivity and condition. This loosens the bond of dead cells within the pore. Finally, Cryogenic Therapy produces an anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory effect on the skin. Pores appear smaller and the skin is left toned and refreshed. The procedure is concluded with the application of an appropriate moisturizer and UV protection.
