Frequently Asked Questions

All of these treatments resurface the skin and stimulate collagen to promote new skin growth. But the techniques are different. Microdermabrasion is like an abrasive sanding of the skin surface. Microneedling reaches the skin under the surface by means of tiny needles. Both are great treatments for sensitive skin as well as darker skin tones that don’t respond that well to laser treatments, but laser treatments can achieve good results for certain skin issues. Chemical peels achieve similar results as the above treatments, but the process is chemical rather than physical, via the application of a liquid to the skin. Dermaplaning is a more manual form of resurfacing using a fine blade to peel away the outer layer of the skin. Which of these treatments works best is a matter best decided by you and your aesthetician once she has seen and evaluated your skin.

Yes. Certain laser treatments don’t work well on darker skin tones, but this is where microdermabrasion and microneedling can step in to give you great results without the worry of hypopigmentation, hyperpigmentation, or other forms of burning.

Our Dermasweep microdermabrasion system is particularly well suited for sensitive skin, including rosacea-prone skin, blemish-prone skin and the area around the eyes, yet it is also strong enough for fine lines, wrinkles, tone and texture.

After your skin treatment, our aesthetician typically applies product to your skin. The removal of the outer layer of skin allows for these products to penetrate deeper for immediate rejuvenation, and we offer this as part of your treatment. In addition, we offer products to purchase for at home use from Alastin and PCA to continue your skin’s improvement with daily use.

The DOT laser skin resurfacing technology is the gold standard for sun overexposure and other signs of aging. It is fast, promotes the formation of new tissue as you heal, and your downtime is minimal. It can be used on the face as well as the neck, décolleté, and hands.

Yes. Our aestheticians are very skilled at scar removal by combining various skin treatments, and sometimes work minor miracles to remove scars you have carried with you for years, maybe even since puberty. Scar revision also works well to treat any kind of surgical scars, even if they are not recent.

Yes. Our aesthetician can work on areas like double chin, neck, arms, belly, or thighs. Anything you can think of can be treated with the non-invasive skin tightening options listed on this page. If you want more dramatic results, you may want to look into more powerful yet still non-surgical options such as BodyTite and FaceTite.

What is Skin Rejuvenation?

There are many affordable options to rejuvenate your appearance without surgery. Our facial skin treatments are ideal for women – and men – who want to treat their face without downtime. Some of our non-invasive skin treatments, such as skin tightening and scar revision, can be used on any part of the body.

What is a Good Skincare Routine?

The goal of any skincare routine should be focused on tuning up your complexion so that your skin is functioning at its best. This may involve focusing on targeting areas that are giving you the most trouble. Your skin will change as you age, and with it the best products and routine you implement. However, there are three steps that should be a part of any daily skincare routine you choose to pursue: cleansing, toning, and moisturizing.

Cleansing

Keeping your skin clean and washing your face daily is one of the most beneficial steps to achieving beautiful and younger looking skin. Your skin comes into contact with a variety of environmental pollutants, dirt, oils, and grime throughout the day, and they should be gently removed. Washing your face twice a day, once in the morning and once at night, will help you avoid clogged pores, dullness, and even acne.

Toning

Toners have changed drastically over the years. Older toners used to be alcohol based and would dry up the skin in order to remove any unwanted dirt or oils. However, many toners you can find today deliver extra nutrients and even help your skin absorb any additional products you may use to balance your complexion. Toner is optional, but can be a good way to add specific nutrients that may not be found in other products. Some of the more notable ingredients of a good toner include:

  • Alpha and beta hydroxy acids: helps remove dead skin cells, improve sun-damaged skin, and reduce dullness. 
  • Hyaluronic acid: helps boost hydration and subtly treats fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Rose water and green tea: have anti-inflammatory properties that may help reduce skin irritation and redness.
  • Vitamin E and C: help fight exposure to free radicals that age the skin.

Additional skincare products that act similarly to toners include serums. Serums are often filled with microdoses of active, antioxidant ingredients that may help mitigate dark spots or wrinkles. Some of the ingredients to look out for to target specific issues include:

  • Vitamin C: to brighten the skin and to reduce dark spots
  • Retinol, vitamin B3, peptides: to stimulate collagen and elastin production. These help prevent fine lines and skin sagging.
  • Colloidal sulfur, niacinamide: to reduce reddening or irritation of the skin by decreasing inflammation. They are also known to improve acne with their antimicrobial effects.

Moisturizing

Hydrating the skin is important no matter your age or skin type. Moisturizers, as implied in the name, help to hydrate and soften the skin. Essentially, a moisturizer serves to prevent loss of water in the outer layers of skin. Moisturizers also complement naturally occurring, protective oils in the skin. As we age, our skin loses its ability to retain moisture. Certain moisturizers should be added into your daily skincare routine – year-round and for all skin types.

What are the Types of Skin Care Treatments?

Rejuvenating facial skin can be accomplished by reversing sun damage, uneven skin tone, wrinkles & fine lines, hyperpigmentation, age spots, or acne scarring. There are various methods to achieve this, including microdermabrasion, dermaplaning, microneedling, laser skin resurfacing, chemical peels, and radio frequency assisted treatments.

Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is a minimally-invasive procedure used to renew skin tone and texture. Microdermabrasion can help improve the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, acne scarring, sun damage, and many other skin-related concerns or conditions.

Think of it as a mechanical exfoliating procedure. Typically, the procedure utilizes an abrasive surface to gently sand away the thick, outer layer of skin. This encourages natural collagen production, which helps make the skin look younger, fuller, and softer.

Microneedling

Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure that involves pricking the skin by means of tiny, sterilized needles to reach the skin under the surface. These tiny wounds encourage collagen and elastin production to heal the skin, making it look younger and brighter. Microneedling is often called collagen induction therapy.

Chemical Peel

Chemical peels achieve similar results as the above treatments, but the process is chemical rather than physical, via the application of a liquid to the skin. Typically, your aesthetician will apply one or more chemical solutions to your face, neck, or hands, after they have been thoroughly cleansed. The chemicals can vary but often include: glycolic acid, trichloroacetic acid, salicylic acid, lactic acid, or carbolic acid (phenol). This will create a controlled “wound” or blister that will allow for new skin to take its place.

Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning is a more manual form of resurfacing using a fine blade to peel away the outer layer of the skin. You may hear it also called microplaning or microblading. The aim of dermaplaning is to make your skin’s surface smooth, younger looking, and reduce dullness. This treatment can help remove deep tissue scarring caused by acne and other uneven pockmarks on your skin.

Laser Skin Resurfacing

Laser skin resurfacing techniques help remove skin layer by layer with precision. A dermatologist or cosmetic surgeon will target wrinkles around the eyes, mouth, or forehead individually, or treat the whole face. These treatments will often require a topical anesthetic or sedation depending on the size of the area being treated.

Radio Frequency Assisted Treatments

Non-invasive radio frequency assisted treatments can be used to tighten skin. These include Thermi, Exilis, Forma, Fractora, and Morpheus.
