Acne, blemish prone skin, aging, premature aging, hyperpigmentation, sun damaged, sensitive skin, and follicular inflammation are some common skin conditions which can benefit from consistent professional facial care. Preventative maintenance is a built-in benefit of a facial care routine.
Your skin care journey will be tailored to meet your skins unique needs. As your skin health partner and guide, I will ensure that you are on the perfect treatment path to bring about the results you are seeking.
This path may include:
Advanced solutions combine exfoliating acids, melatonin inhibitors and skin-strengthening agents to provide maximum benefits with minimal discomfort and no down time. The synergistic effect of their ingredients provides corrective and nutritive benefits while exfoliating the surface of the skin to help minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and even skin tone.
Dermaplaning is the original clinical exfoliation epidermis treatment used to smooth away dead surface skin and superficial vellus hair, leaving the skin incredibly smooth and primed for additional targeted facial care. Microdermabrasion exfoliates using a diamond tip or fine crystals to break up coarse, clogged, and dull dead skin. This treatment is proven to refine the texture and tone of the skin. This is especially beneficial for reducing the size of pores and refining fine lines.
Technology utilizing micro-electric stimulation to re-educate facial muscle tissue at a cellular level results in a toned and supple complexion. Intensity is modified and results are accumulative as treatment progresses.
LED Light Therapy
Inspired by light and proven by science, low-level light therapy is a path to a radiant complexion. Light therapy reduces inflammation and increases micro-circulation on a cellular level promoting healing. This treatment is effective for acne, blemishes, and aging skin.
Micro channeling creates tiny perforations causing a natural healing response. Combined with a proprietary solution, new collagen and elastin are produced which results in firmer, smoother, and healthier skin. This technique is generally employed to reduce wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, age-spots/sunspots, and stretch marks.
Oxygenation is an anti-oxidant facial including an aromatic black cherry infusion. This produces a radiant healthy complexion and is recommended before an event.
A gentle cleansing and exfoliation with warm towels or steam, stylized massage, pore extractions, and a finishing mask leaves the complexion hydrated and refreshed.
The benefits of Essential Oils (EO) are vast. Applied directly on skin, sprayed or inhaled, EO’s treat and condition the complexion. In addition, therapeutic benefits impacts mood, memory, and emotion. This biologic unity care is natural and effective for healing and beauty.
Reiki energy work expands the chakras delivering the energy fields what is needed for the higher good. This can be provided with or without touch and leaves you feeling refreshed and renewed.
