Skin by Tara is changing the way you look at professional treatments. Typically, facials have been equated with a spa experience and not credited with making dramatic changes in the skin, but no longer. Advanced techniques combined with clinical grade skin care treatments will allow you to uncover healthy, beautiful skin.
Unlike a regular day spa facial, clinical grade customized facials provide lasting benefits such as hydration, enzyme exfoliation, and deep pore cleansing. This delivery system helps to drive the product into the skin and compliments your personal home treatment program. This is important as aging, lifestyle, and heredity are factors in causing skin to lose its elasticity and tone. I use only cosmeceutical grade skin care products to help hydrate, tighten, exfoliate and restore your skins youthful appearance.
It is extremely important that we take care of your individual skin care goals. Tara determines the best skin care products to use for your skin and makes sure you receive the maximum results with her customized facials. Whether you are concerned about acne, wrinkles, sun spots, or dull and rough texture, she can find the perfect remedy for your skin care dilemmas.

Add on to any facial:
LED Light Therapy – $35
When this beneficial light is applied directly to the skin it can help to increase collagen and elastin production, reduce inflammation, speed healing, increase circulation, and destroy acne bacteria. Read more about it and the benefits here.
Dermafile – $15
The Dermafile procedure is administered in the same way as a traditional machine-based Microdermabrasion treatment and gently removes the top layer of skin cells with a resurfacing wand, minus the suction of traditional Microdermabrasion. The wand may be passed over the skin several times and/or concentrated on a particular area that has a high level of skin pigmentation or skin irregularities. The Dermafile treatment polishes the skin, leaving it soft and velvety smooth immediately after. Consider booking with an enzyme facial or chemical peel for enhanced results. Read more about it and the benefits here.
Exfoliation Boosts – $10
For added exfoliation benefits.
Lactic (AHA) boost – Can be added to the enzyme portion of the facial. Improves roughness, brightens complexion and softens skin while improving the appearance of wrinkles. Great for hydrating and lightening while exfoliating skin in a gentle manner.
Retinol scrub – Jojoba beads gently buff away surface debris while Retinol smooths the skin and stimulates collagen production. Lightening ingredients work in tandem to promote a clear, healthy skin tone. Great for acne, anti-aging, and hyper-pigmentation
Customized Corrective Peels
$125 | Series of 6 – $650 (Post peel kit included)
Your skin must be prepped for two weeks with SkinScript professional home care products to having your first corrective peel. A series of six peels is recommended. Pre and post treatment protocols are mandatory, and must be followed to ensure skin safety and to achieve desired results.
These revitalizing Corrective Peels are customized for you to target specific skin concerns while helping to restore optimal skin health and vitality. PCA SKIN Professional Products help reduce the depth of surface lines, smooth rough skin texture, treat skin discoloration and redness, and assist in clearing acne/blemished skin. The naturally occurring alpha hydroxy acids (AHA’s), beta hydroxy acids (BHA’s), retinol and trichloroacetic acid (TCA) found in PCA SKIN Professional Products loosen dead cells from the skin’s surface, revealing new healthy cells. The result? Smooth, Radiant, Glowing Skin!
