Micro-Needling (also known as Collagen Induction Therapy or CIT) is a new skin rejuvenation treatment that is comparable in results to skin rejuvenation lasers – but without the downtime or cost! This treatment allows for controlled induction of the skin’s self-repair mechanism by creating micro “injuries” in the skin, which triggers new collagen formation and improves fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and acne scars. The result is smoother, firmer and younger looking skin. 

What is the downtime?  Immediately after the treatment, you will notice a bright redness to the skin.  The total healing time depends on the pen position used and the number of overlapping passes your skin-care professional performs.  On average, patients experience redness for 2-4 days.  Some patients heal completely in 24 hours.

Benefits:

  • Affordable
  • Effective
  • Minimal Downtime
  • Minimal Discomfort
  • Safe for Most Skin Types
  • Natural Results

Platelet-Rich Plasma (Micro-Needling with PRP)
Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF)
Plays a significant role in the regulation of cell growth, proliferation and differentiation during the remodeling phase.  Stimulates keratinocyte and fibroblast production.

The PRP Facial, or as Hollywood calls it the "Vampire Facial", is a treatment that incorporates your own platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and Micro-Needling. This facial stimulates collagen production and improves fine lines and winkles, hyperpigmentation, sun damage and scars.

The PRP Facial treatment begins with drawing a vial of blood from the patient. The provider places the blood in a centrifuge and spins the blood at a very rapid rate to separate the platelets from the other components of the blood. The platelets are then activated, producing your very own Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP). Next, the skin is numbed with topical anesthetic cream, so the treatment can be performed with minimal discomfort. The automated MicroPen is then applied over the treatment area creating micro “injuries” in the skin. The growth factor-rich topical PRP solution is then applied to the skin and effectively absorbed, which will stimulate collagen production and wake up the skin at a cellular level. Patients experience zero or very little social downtime.

Oxygenating Facial (No Peeling)
This antioxidant therapy corrects and prevents free radical damage, reducing oxidative and environmental stress to the skin.  It helps promote healthy skin and rejuvenates sluggish and stressed skin.

Pumpkin Peel Facial Treatment
This powerful antioxidant treatment brightens and rejuvenates, leaving smooth skin texture and providing pore-clearing action.  This treatment simultaneously exfoliates and draws impurities out of the skin while infusing vitamins, enzymes and nutrients into the skin, resulting in a healthy glow, with little to no post-treatment peeling.

Custom Blended Peels
These skin-friendly yet effective peels address many skin conditions without the discomfort and downtime associated with traditional Chemical peels.  These blends contain a variety of beneficial ingredients to help treat acne, skin discoloration (hyperpigmentation) , and fine lines and wrinkles, while leaving the skin plump and hydrated.

Smoothing Body Peel Treatment
The two-step treatment is formulated with potent ingredients that deeply exfoliate and improve skin tone and texture while lightening any skin discoloration.  The first step involves a Pre-Peel Accelerator Mask, which combines conditioning topicals such as urea and malic acid which hydrate and soften skin.  The second step is a Smoothing Body Peel combining prescription-strength ingredients like TCA, lactic acid, salicylic acid, kojic acid and arbutin, which penetrate deep into the dermis and dramatically improve the skin’s appearance.

Boosters
This advanced hydrating treatment plumps, hydrates and moisturizes aging skin.  The retinol (vitamin A) content helps increase cell turnover to keep skin looking fresh, while vitamin C strengthens the skin by helping to increase the skin’s collagen and elastin network, leaving skin toned and bright.  This booster may cause additional peeling and may be added to any of the above treatments if recommended.

Oxygen Facial
An Intraceuticals Rejuvenate treatment harnesses three elements to achieve instant and dramatic results:

  • Oxygen under light pressure aids delivery of age defying ingredients to the skin at the same time as cooling and calming the skin.
     
  • Unique Rejuvenate Serum contains lightweight Hyaluronic Acid and a powerful combination of vitamins and antioxidants. The Hyaluronic Acid helps to instantly hydrate the skin resulting in Increased firmness, reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improved look to facial contours and overall radiance.
     
  • Treatment Support Products provide essential layers to seal in and supplement skin nutrients for maximum synergistic effect and longer lasting results. HYALURONIC LAYERING Hyaluronic Acid is an ingredient found naturally in the skin.

The ultimate in intense hydration is now achieved and we call this Hyaluronic Layering.

Microdermabrasion Treatment
Microdermabrasion (MDA) treatments can help reduce wrinkles and fine lines, “crow’s feet,” age spots, light acne scars, and undesired pigmentation that may appear on the skin over time.  MDA is a non-chemical, non-invasive procedure that uses a spray of microcrystals to remove the outermost layer of dry, dead skin cells and reveal younger, healthier-looking skin.  MDA also encourages the production of a new underlying layer of skin cells with higher levels of collagen and elastin, which further improves your skin’s appearance.

Pelleve

Skin Tightening for the face and neck.  Pellevé is a non-invasive skin tightening treatment that visibly reduces wrinkles and smoothes the face and neck. Pelleve is the most significant advancement in non-surgical skin tightening therapy available today.

Pellevé precisely delivers energy to the dermal tissue using advanced radiofrequency technology to induce collagen contraction without damaging the epidermis. The result is skin tightening and contouring with a noticeable improvement in skin quality and texture. Protein stimulation causes new collagen formation and production in the dermis which also results in epidermal tightening. Existing bands of collagen tighten in subcutaneous fat, creating a tightening of the epidermis.

PelleFirm for the body

This innovative system is comprised of 2 new, large diameter handpieces sized for the body that elevate tissue temperature up to 45 degrees Celsius, coupled with mechanical massage heads for treatment of areas with cellulite. PelleFirm can address almost any area of the body and is ideal for problem zones including the abdomen, arms, buttocks and thighs and can be used on all skin types. Like Pellevé, a PelleFirm RF Body Treatment system is effective, delivering visible results with no pain and no downtime.

The PelleFirm System is CE Marked for body skin tightening and cellulite reduction. In addition, it also has received FDA 510(K) clearance for tissue heating and the temporary reduction in the appearance of cellulite.

Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is a long lasting and effective way to safely eliminate unwanted facial or body hair. Laser hair removal works by directing energy pulses via the use of a laser, at the melanin, which is the dark pigment inside the hair follicles, effectively destroying the hair without damaging the skin.

The length of a laser hair removal session depends on the size of the area to be treated. Small areas may take only 15 minutes, while larger areas (i.e. the back or legs) can take up to sixty minutes or more. Minor swelling and redness for the first day after treatment is normal, but most individuals do not experience any other side effects from laser hair removal.

Non-Ablative Fractional Laser Resurfacing
This is a great new technology used to treat a variety of skin conditions. Fractional treatments can be applied to most areas of the body. The most popular Fractional treatment areas include the face, chest, arms, and hands. Fractional resurfacing is great for facial lines and wrinkles, stretch marks, surgical and acne scars, pigmentation disorders and sun damage.

How does Non Ablative Fractional Lasers work?
The 1540 Fractional™ Laser delivers light in an array of high precision microbeams. These microbeams create narrow, deep columns of tissue coagulation that penetrate well below the epidermis and into the dermis, while sparing the tissue surrounding the columns from damage. The Coagulated tissue within the columns initiates a natural healing process that accelerates the formation of new, healthy tissue. Coagulated cellular debris is expelled as the skin is resurfaced. By delivering light as individual pulses of microbeams, the Fractional 1540 protects the skin from the overheating that can result from many other resurfacing treatments. In addition, the Fractional 1540 features built-in cooling of the skin, so you feel only minor discomfort during treatment. Throughout the process, the integrity of the stratum corneum is maintained, which protects the tissue from infection as it heals.

You may experience redness, warmth, swelling, or tightness in the treated area, which typically fades within a few hours of treatment. The skin may often have a pinkish tone for 5-7 days. Because the light pulses are confined to narrow columns in the skin, much of the skin is left unaffected and there is a quick healing process. Most people notice positive changes in skin tone and texture within a few days. A series of 3 to 5 treatments at 4-6 week intervals may be required to achieve the desired results.

PhotoFacial/Facial Rejuvenation (IPL)
A photofacial is an innovative, non-invasive therapy that utilizes advanced light technology to treat skin that has been damaged or discolored as a result of sun exposure, rosacea and hyperpigmentation.  If you want to achieve a smoother, healthier complexion and restore a more even and vibrant tone to your skin, a Photofacial treatment  may be ideal for you.  What are the benefits of Photofacial therapy?

If you are looking for a way to improve the look and feel of your skin, Photofacial therapy may be the perfect solution. It is a great option for those who want to reverse sun damage; eliminate age spots, freckles, and mild scarring; treat redness, rosacea, and hyperpigmentation; reduce large pores; or even out the skin tone. The treatment is non-invasive, gentle, and very quick. No recovery time is required and the results are almost instantaneous.
