MicroCurrent

My "Instant Facelift" is my own signature facial that uses safe microcurrent energy to stimulate and strengthen the muscle tissue under the skin and increase the production of collagen and elastin in the skin. With improved muscle tone and increased levels of collagen and elastin, the skin regains a "plump and youthful" look. A micro-current facial uses individual electrodes placed on the lower key facial muscles and probes around the more sensitive eye areas. After a thorough cleanse, hypo-allergenic pads are placed on the key muscles of the cheeks, jaw line and neck. I then treat the upper areas with probes, while the lower facial muscles are exercised automatically with a combination of individually controlled facial electrodes that are designed to tone and lift. The sagging facial muscles are made to work up to 900 times in a 45 minutes session. You might think of this as "Pilates" for your facial muscles! You can customize a micro-current facial by combining it with other treatments, such as dermabrasion to gain an even better effect. The micro-current facial was invented by European doctors in the 1990's and was first used as a beauty therapy there. As a result, the very first micro-current machines designed specifically for the beauty industry were produced in Europe. My own experience has taught me that although they are much more expensive, the well established European-made micro-current machines are far more effective than the cheaper Chinese-made copies. The machine I use is the "Goddess 2000 Diana Micro-Current Machine", which is made in the UK, I am the only Spa in the US that uses this machine, they are considered to be the "Gold Standard" in the UK and Europe.

IPL - Skin Rejuvenation

IPL Photofacial is a cosmetic procedure designed to produce younger and healthier looking skin. A variety of skin conditions, such as acne, red complexion, rosacea, fine lines, wrinkles, large pores, freckles and pigmented spots can be treated using intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy.

Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is one of the easiest and most effective anti-aging treatments you can get. Microdermabrasion softens fine lines and wrinkles, helps to smooth coarsely textured skin, decreases the appearance of scarring, decreases pore size, and reduces superficial hyper-pigmentation, also known as age spots. For certain skin types microdermabrasion can be used in conjunction with a chemical or enzyme peel to increase their effectiveness.

Custom Facials

Custom facials can address a variety of needs ranging from premature aging and environmental damage to acne flare-ups to a dull and patchy complexion. When it comes to our skin, sometimes itís tough to face the facts. If your less-than-perfect complexion is causing you stress and could use a pick-me-up, you may want to consider booking a custom facial. These tailored treatments can cater to all skin types and may include deep cleansing, extractions, exfoliation, or more high-tech procedures such as peels. For an added treat, I also provide a quick head, neck, and shoulder massage to complement the facial.

Chemical Peels

A chemical peel uses a chemical solution to smooth the texture of your skin by removing the damaged outer layers. A chemical peel is one of the least invasive ways to improve the appearance of your skin. Sun exposure, acne, or just getting older can leave your skin tone uneven, wrinkled, spotted or scarred. There are three levels of chemical peels (light peel, medium peel, deep peel). The choice of the level of peel depends mainly on your skin condition and sensitivity.

Waxing

Waxing is a treatment of hair removal that leaves the skin smooth and polished. My special depilatory wax provides optimum efficiency and decreases skin irritation. Repeated waxing is recommended to diminish new growth.
