Facial Perks & Modalities
Cutting edge technology meets ancient modalities for a luxurious facial experience
All facial treatments are bespoke and tailored to your skin’s unique needs based on our collaboration of what I assess with your current condition and your desired results.
I integrate my knowledge of the latest advancements in performance skincare, holistic options and modern modalities such as LED Light Therapy and Microcurrent.
The groundbreaking Rezenerate Nano Facial (also known as Nano-needling) drastically reduces fine lines and leaves your skin looking and feeling younger. It is a non-invasive, precision wand that features single-use, disposable silicon nano tips which painlessly create millions of microscopic channels in the uppermost layer of the skin. This allows for greater absorption of the corrective serums and nutrients infused into the skin during the treatment, providing deep hydration and immediate plumpness. Collagen and elastin is stimulated and skin feels more firm and fresh. In the days following the treatment, dead skin gently flakes or peels to reveal a refreshed surface. This treatment is customized for each client for their specific indications and causes no pain or discomfort, thus does not require numbing cream like more aggressive MicroNeedling treatments. Nano-Needling improves fine lines and wrinkles, dark spots, dry skin, and blemishes. Safe to use around the eye area, on lips and over Botox and fillers.
What to expect:
Days 0-2: Instant reduction in fine lines and wrinkles post-treatment. Skin will be tighter, firmer and plumper with a healthy glow. There is no recovery period and clients may apply makeup and go out a few minutes after their facial. Sunscreen (SPF 30 or higher) must be worn for the next 7 days.
Days 3-5: The micro-peeling effect takes place, the skin may feel a bit dry and the top layer of old dead skin may gently flake or peel to reveal healthy new skin.
Days 5-10: Renewed, more youthful looking skin is revealed. Many long term improvements (such as a more pronounced reduction in fine lines and wrinkles and an improvement in tone and texture) develop when performed in a series of treatments and combined with a professional home care regimen.
Like Pilates for the face! Targeting the source of aging at the electro-magnetic level, Microcurrent facial treatments can be a healthy alternative to Botox and fillers. The face is lifted and contoured with a reduction in puffiness and softening of lines with a plumping boost of hydration. Microcurrent Technology is the only aesthetic treatment available that can physically firm and tone the skin through the process of a gentle ‘re-education’ of the fine facial muscles, by stimulating them with very small amounts of electricity. Microcurrent is a specific amount of gentle, painless electricity that mirrors the body’s own natural current and works in harmony with the body’s own electrical system. Treatments are recommended one to two times per week for 10 to 12 sessions before going to monthly maintenance.
The geeky science bit: Micro-current impulses work at a cellular level to increase the effectiveness of how our cells use ATP (adenosine triphosphate), a naturally occurring protein in our bodies that is food for our cells and referred to as, ‘the energy of life’. Blood circulation is improved, which has everything to do with the function, condition, color, and overall health of the skin and its underlying tissue. The Micro-current stimulates the underlying tissues thus aiding in strengthening the muscles and bringing lift and definition to contours of the face. By reproducing the body’s own biological current, over time we can re-establish muscle memory naturally. This process is completely painless. The fact that ATP, food for our cells, can be stockpiled or stored is the reason why Microcurrent treatment results are cumulative and become better as a series of treatments progresses.
Oxygen facials are known as the “Red Carpet Facial” treatment, as it is one of the top choices before a special event by both celebrities and those in-the-know. Madonna swears by them, and even Kate Middleton is rumored to have had an oxygen facial before the royal wedding.
In the skin, as with other tissues in the body, oxygen is essential to the health of the cells. Every skin type, condition and color can benefit from oxygen – even the most sensitive of skin. A concentrated stream of oxygen molecules which are loaded with skin-loving nutrients, minerals and botanical extracts is gently sprayed and infused into the the surface of the skin for immediate results. Infusions are customized to your skin, with options such as Brightening (excellent for dark spots, melasma and uneven tone), Triple Antioxidant (vitamins A, C and E for mild to moderate wrinkles, dull or sluggish skin, sun damage, smokers’ skin), Sensitive (chamomile and bisabolol extracts are calming and anti-inflammatory, soothing redness and irritation), or Antibacterial (calms breakouts, purifies, halts the growth of acne bacteria).
Your skin will be bright and energized, fine lines and wrinkles softened and a radiance from within. There is zero downtime which makes this the perfect treatment before a wedding, a date, a family gathering, professional pictures or any event where you’d like to look your best. Visible results last for up to 7 days post-treatment.
Cleared by the FDA for pain management and skin care, Celluma LED Light Therapy devices use specific wavelengths of light energy to improve cellular health by accelerating the repair and replenishment of compromised tissue cells. In the same way that plants use chlorophyll to convert sunlight into energy, high intensity light emitting diodes (LEDs) utilizing specific, proven wavelengths of light can trigger a natural biostimulatory effect in human tissue. Research has shown that LED light therapy can increase healthy circulation, accelerate tissue repair, kill acne bacteria, decrease inflammation, improve skin tone, texture and clarity and decrease wrinkles. Suitable for all skin types!
For acne sufferers, Blue and red LED light light-therapy is widely used as an effective option for the treatment of inflammatory acne. Adding this service to your acne facial or as an additional treatment in between your regularly scheduled acne facials has been proven to speed the clearing of existing acne breakouts while killing bacteria to prevent future breakouts.
For anti-aging and healthier skin: Increased fibroblast proliferation is just one benefit of LED red light therapy. Fibroblasts make collagen fibers, so it stands to reason that the more, and healthier, fibroblasts we have in the skin, the more and better collagen fibers are made. And as we all know, collagen synthesis and maintenance is the bedrock of anti-aging. Healthy collagen levels are what give us a glowing complexion and firm skin. The more our bodies produce collagen, the better we’ll look and our skin will feel as we get older. Proven red and near-infrared wavelengths are utilized in the Celluma LED light therapy devices to combat the signs of aging. These specific wavelengths of light energy are clinically verified to enhance your body’s natural ability to generate collagen and elastin by activating the fibroblast cells.
A single session lasts approximately 30 minutes. You’ll relax on a comfortable spa treatment table with the device above your head. Many clients fall asleep during this time and look forward to the relaxation during a hectic week. Most clients will experience immediate results and leave with their skin feeling like it is glowing. No prescriptions. No medications. No injections. No surgery. Just safe, natural wavelengths of effective, proven light energy.
Facial Gua Sha—the holistic skin-massage technique based on a traditional Chinese medicine method—has gained huge momentum and a loyal following among skin care buffs.
This gentle facial massage technique is performed with a jade stone board and nourishing oils in a stroking motion over pressure points and lymphatic drainage channels in the face and neck. This stimulates the layers of skin and it’s supporting fascia to clear stagnant fluids, lift the contours of the face and encourage healthy micro-circulation. Toxins are released and cleared away, and the overall effect is an immediate improvement in the signs of aging such as wrinkles, sagging, undereye puffiness, dark circles, and dull complexion.
Like many treatments, results are best seen when performed in a series.
The skin care treatment we all know and love – crystal free Diamond Microdermabrasion. Patented, smooth diamond encrusted tips are designed to sweep away dead skin cells, refreshing dull complexions and gradually improving visible signs of aging. After several sessions, most clients report that skin’s tone and texture are dramatically improved.
Not recommended for those with sensitized skin such as Rosacea, broken capillaries, active inflamed acne, Retinol/Retin-A use in the past 30 days, or using Accutane in the past 12 months.
If you’ve ever considered or have experience with microdermabrasion to improve fine lines and wrinkles, reduce sun damage, hyperpigmentation, acne scarring and/or to freshen up your complexion, there is new innovative technique for skin rejuvenation called Dermafile, a Holistic Microdermabrasion wand that is quickly becoming a popular alternative to traditional microdermabrasion.
A Dermafile treatment uses finely crushed diamonds to micro-polish the skin and remove the top layer of dead skin cells, like a conventional microdermabrasion procedure, but without the abrasiveness and potential damage to thin or delicate skin due to the traditional machines which use suction.
Using a resurfacing wand, Dermafile slowly removes the top layer of skin cells. The wand may be passed over the skin several times to ensure that every layer is removed evenly, and your esthetician can even choose to concentrate on a particular area that has a high level of skin pigmentation or skin irregularities, while polishing the entire face.
Polishing the skin leaves it soft and velvety smooth immediately after the treatment and reveals a new youthful glow. An enzyme or chemical peel may be applied to enhance results and it can be added to most facials. It’s the perfect complement to enhance exfoliation benefits and smooth and rejuvenate the complexion.
Not recommended for those with sensitized skin such as Rosacea, active inflamed acne, Retinol/Retin-A use in the past 30 days, or using Accutane in the past 12 months.
The Ultrasonic Skin Scrubber produces 24,000Hz per second of ultrasonic waves that effectively loosen debris and dead skin cells in pores, giving you a more thorough deep clean. It also provides gentle retexturizing results as well as encouraging product penetration, increasing blood flow, and strengthening skin metabolism with the safe and gentle vibrations of ultrasound technology. Suitable for all skin types.
During the high frequency treatment, enriched oxygen molecules are produced that create a anti-bacterial action, effectively killing acne-causing bacteria, reducing inflammation (especially for cystic acne) and increasing the speed that active acne breakouts heal.
High frequency is considered to be a safe, gentle and therapeutic approach to skin rejuvenation, quickly healing and restoring your skin’s health.
Not suited for those with heart problems, a pacemaker, metal implants, pregnancy, or epilepsy.
