Microdermabrasion is a skin-freshening technique that helps repair facial skin that takes a beating from the sun and the effects of aging. A fine sandblaster-like device is used to spray tiny crystals across the face, combining gentle abrasion with suction to remove the problem areas of the outer layer of your skin. As with other skin rejuvenation techniques, more than one treatment may be needed to reduce or remove fine wrinkles and unwanted pigmentation.

IPL Laser

Intense Pulse Light Laser reduces fine lines, large pores, minor facial scarring, by stimulating collagen beneath your skin. IPL can also reduce redness caused by Rosacea, reduce brown spots, and reduce the appearance of broken capillaries. IPL can be used in areas other than the face, such as neck, back, chest or legs.

Fractional Laser

Our Fraxel Laser is FDA approved to treat acne scars, age or brown spots, melasma and wrinkles around the eyes. This skin rejuvenating laser treatment is known for rapid healing time and use on many different skin types.


Iriderm laser treatments are used for removal of pigmented and vascular lesions. Additionally, Iriderm lasers can be used to treat facial blood vessels and broken capillaries without creating sightly scars.


Dermaplaning is a "skin-refinishing" treatment. Aa hand-held instrument called a dermatome is used. Resembling an electric razor, the dermatome has an oscillating blade that moves back and forth to evenly "skim" off the surface layers of skin that surround the craters or other facial defects. This skimming continues until the lowest point of the acne scar becomes more even with the surrounding skin.
