Chemical Peels

Chemical peels help improve the overall appearance of skin by increasing cell turnover. These treatments work to help eliminate built-up dead skin, breakouts and acne, hyperpigmentation, enlarged pores, acne scars, fine lines, wrinkles and overall skin dullness. We offer a variety of PCA Skin chemical peels consisting of citric, glycolic, lactic, phenol and salicylic acids, as well as TCA. 

We also offer SkinCeuticals Advanced Corrective Peel for comprehensive texture refinement and pigmentation correction. This medically exclusive treatment targets signs of aging such as discoloration, uneven texture, lack of radiance, and enlarged pore appearance. 


Microdermabrasion uses a mildly abrasive, sandpaper-like instrument to gently exfoliate the skin, removing the uneven outermost layer. This treatment is used to treat light scarring, fine lines, discoloration and skin dullness, leaving the skin soft and refreshed.


Much like microdermabrasion, dermaplaning is a method of physical exfoliation; however, instead of using a rough instrument, a sterile, surgical scalpel is used to gently "shave" the skin's surface, removing the top-most layer of dead skin along with fine, vellus hair (peach fuzz). This treatment provides an effective and safe exfoliation that promotes deeper product penetration, boosting the effects of skin care products while making the skin look and feel smoother.


SkinPen, the first-ever FDA-approved microneedling device, is a minimally invasive tool that uses sterile needles to create tiny holes in your skin. In response to these micro-injuries, your body produces collagen and elastin by stimulating your skin's natural ability to repair itself. SkinPen can be used on a wide variety of skin types to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, scarring, or discoloration on the face and body — all with little to no downtime. 

Facial Waxing

Facial waxing is a proven method for removing unwanted facial hair, with results that last for weeks. Your esthetician can help you decide if this treatment is right for you.

Eyebrow and Eyelash Tinting

Let our clinical esthetician enhance the look of your eyes by applying a specially formulated dye to add definition and color to your lashes and brows.  Tinting typically lasts a few weeks and should be repeated to maintain the look as new hair growth occurs.
