  • Deep cleansing facial
    This facial includes a thorough cleansing and enzymatic exfoliation, followed by steam, pore extractions and a soothing mask to finish, promoting clearer, healthier skin.
  • Biomedic micropeel
    This anti-aging facial includes a rejuvenating epidermal exfoliation and removal of fine facial hair.  This facial offers the most unique and advanced means of primary exfoliation known as “Dermaplaning.” This treatment features medical grade glycolic or lactic acid to leave the skin refreshed and radiant.
  • Micropeel plus
    This facial includes the application of salicylic acid to effectively treat acne breakouts, smooth fine lines, reduce hyperpigmented skin and stimulate cellular turnover and renewal.
  • Glytone peels
    These glycolic peels offer a deeper level of exfoliation and skin correction using various levels of free glycolic acid ranging from 30% to 70%.  These peels help to target a wide range of skin care concerns including aging, sunspots, acne, dry skin and dull skin.
  • Tri-chloracetic acid
    As strong resurfacing ingredients, TCA, in mid-level strengths, and Jessner’s Peel help to target fine lines, irregular pigment coloration, age spots and mild acne scarring with minimal downtime.


  • Dermaplaning
    Dermaplaning is a non-invasive skin resurfacing procedure that uses a specialized tool to gently scrape away the top layer of epidermal cells, as well as fine facial hair, thereby decreasing excess accumulation of dirt and oil.  This advanced exfoliation procedure stimulates cellular renewal, which leaves the skin with a refreshed appearance.
  • Medical microdermabrasion
    Through the use of Aluminum Oxide crystals, our medical microdermabrasion helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines, brown spots, superficial scars and textural irregularities.  Medical microdermabrasion also encourages collagen stimulation while smoothing the surface of the skin.

Acne Treatment

  • Pore extractions
    Pore extractions are often necessary in order to effectively remove the build-up of excess oil and cellular debris within the pores.  This procedure requires proper preparation of the skin, including a pore refining mask, steam, specialized instruments and the steady hand of your skin care professional.
  • Photodynamic therapy with Levulan for treatment of acne
    A safe and effective alternative to Accutane, Photodynamic Therapy is a procedure that treats resistant, inflammatory acne.  The procedure combines a blue wavelength light and a topical photosensitizing agent called Levulan to dramatically reduce the bacteria in the oil glands.  Significant acne reduction can occur in just 3-4 treatments.
  • Blue light acne treatment and deep cleansing facial
    This is a combination therapy utilizing the anti-bacterial properties of the Blue Light, with the efficacy of the deep cleansing facial – excellent for mild to moderate cases of acne.

Other services
