If your summer glow has started to dull, don’t worry because we have the best, safest, and most effective treatments for all skin types. Take a look at these must-have summer procedures and treatments and book your complimentary consultation or appointment today.
Chemical peels come in three depths: superficial (or light), medium, and deep. We exclusively carry an array of light and medium peels, as deep peels require intensive downtime and should only be used for the most severe of conditions. Light and mediums peels are comprised of a myriad of ingredients used to peel away the top layer(s) of skin. The benefit is two-fold. First, superficial imperfections like some types of hyperpigmentation, fine lines, and wrinkles are instantly removed. Next, this type of controlled trauma is a form of collagen induction therapy. As the skin heals, it kick-starts collagen production at the treatment site so that skin will continue to look better in the weeks following your treatment. Light and medium peels are suitable for summer because they don’t make the skin too vulnerable for UV rays, but you should still avoid direct sun contact as much as possible for two weeks after the treatment.
The HydraFacial Difference
The HydraFacial quickly became a celebrity favorite when its proprietary 3-in-1 technology was revealed—but it’s an indulgence that fits every budget. This treatment simultaneously exfoliates the skin, extracts debris from pores, and bathes the skin in custom-selected medical-grade skin care topicals. Going well beyond what any typical in-office facial can achieve, HydraFacial is equal parts powerful and gentle so there is no downtime. In fact, the best time to get a HydraFacial is the day of a big event or night out.
Every HydraFacial treatment is also unique because our providers match you with the best skin care products for your concerns in real time. This makes it a fantastic way to test out products before committing to upgrading your regimen and purchasing an entire tube or bottle. You’ll leave your HydraFacial with skin that is baby soft, glowing, radiant, and more youthful. Of course, one of the medical-grade products used at every appointment is sunscreen so you don’t have to worry about damaging your fresh skin.
Dermaplaning Complements Any Procedure
Dermaplaning is an in-office treatment that uses a specialized scalpel to remove the peach fuzz and debris from the skin’s surface. There’s no way to get rid of these light hairs permanently (neither laser hair reduction nor electrolysis works on them as they are so fine), but they can make us look older than we are, dull the skin, and trap debris on the skin’s surface that can cause issues like acne breakouts. Routine dermaplaning is a fast, easy, and non-invasive way to instantly make skin look younger, healthier, and revitalized.
Although dermaplaning is a great standalone treatment, it also pairs well with a myriad of other procedures and treatments—including chemical peels and the HydraFacial. When you have a dermaplaning treatment first, this clears the skin so that other treatments can best do their job. Peach fuzz can get in the way of optimal exfoliation, extraction, and can keep applied topicals from best penetrating the skin. Plus, removing this fuzz makes your face feel silky smooth.
Scheduling Summer Sessions
We offer complimentary, no-pressure consultations on all treatments and procedures so that you have full confidence in your skin care regimen. Whether you’re getting ready for summer vacation plans or simply want to look and feel your best this season, we have a variety of treatments and procedures to help you achieve your goals. This time of year is also the perfect time to reassess your at-home skin care routine, upgrade products like sunscreens and serums, and make sure your skin is as healthy as possible.
We are more than a medical day spa, and Zuzana Likar personally trains her staff to the highest of standards.
