HydraFacials rejuvenate all skin types and will leave your skin glowing. Our patients love the HydraFacial treatment because it is gentle yet produces beautiful results. During this medical-grade exfoliation treatment, use anti-aging serums enriched with antioxidants, each customized to your skin’s specific needs!
This technique uses light to reduce inflammation and kill the bacteria that causes acne. We use the LIGHTWAVE™ Technologies system to deliver LED therapy. A combination of red, infrared and blue light wavelengths treat both acne and acne scars by killing bacteria and stimulating cell renewal and repair.
PhotoDynamic Therapy uses light-sensitive chemicals are applied to the skin. Your oil glands and skin bacteria absorb them for 30 minutes before you’re treated with the activating light. This shrinks the skin’s oil glands and reduces skin oiliness, oil in the pores, and the formation of comedones. This is especially helpful for moderate to severe acne.
Chemical peels use formulations to get rid of dead cells to soften acne scars and even control acne, leaving you with smoother, vibrant skin. The type of chemical used depends on the severity of your condition and can range from alpha and beta hydroxy acids to retinoic and trichloroacetic acid (TCA).
Otherwise known as collagen induction therapy, microneedling creates micro-injuries to the skin’s dermis to trigger new collagen and elastin production. Safe for all skin tones, we can use the advanced MicroPen EVO™ system to improve acne scars, under-eye puffiness and crepiness, large pores, fine lines, and uneven skin tone on the face, neck, chest, and hands.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
Laser skin resurfacing employs different types of lasers that can treat a range of scar types, including depressed acne scars. The lasers used can be ablative or non-ablative, depending on your particular situation. Ablative treatments will provide the quickest results but you will experience some down time. Our patients treated with non-ablative laser skin resurfacing can resume normal activities right after the procedure.
