The Skin Clinic

The Skin Clinic Consultation

New clients start with a 45-60 minute skin consultation. This session allows us to discuss your goals and concerns and to determine the best customized treatment plan for you. Our aesthetician will cleanse and examine your skin as well as review your skincare history, wishes and needs. We suggest you bring all skincare products currently used to assess their suitability. Our aesthetician will also recommend an effective home care regimen to help your skin look its very best. The cost of this appointment is $50.

Customized Treatments

Each person’s skin is unique, and skin is an ever-changing living organ. Therefore, we customize treatments to your concerns and specific skin needs. Fees start at $135 for a 60-minute appointment.

Classic Facials

Our treatments always address face, neck and decollete. Here are the steps in a typical facial, though steps may vary for each client.

Cleansing
Facials always begin with a thorough cleansing to remove all traces of makeup.
Skin Analysis
We assess your skin condition to determine the best treatment plan.
Exfoliation

Removes the outermost layer of dry dead skin cells to help accelerate cell turnover and refine the texture and pores. It is an important step in a treatment to allow product absorption, and is recommended as part of your home care routine to achieve and maintain a healthy glowing complexion.

We choose from a variety of exfoliators which either chemically dissolve dead skin cells (enzyme peels and mild acid compounds), or physically removes them (brush, scrub, gommage, dermaplaning or microdermabrasion).

Microdermabrasion
Parisian Peel® Medical Microdermabrasion is the most trusted, gentle, non-invasive skin rejuvenation therapy available today. Parisian Peel® uses a directed stream of micro-crystals, combined with vacuum to exfoliate, refresh and renew your skin. It is an effective therapy that, when used alone or in combination with other treatments reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, brown spots, acne scars and other skin imperfections.
Dermaplaning
Dermaplaning (also known as blading or epidermal leveling) is a manual exfoliation technique using a special bladed tool to skillfully remove layers of dead skin cells and “peach fuzz”. The treatment promotes healing through new collagen and elastin production, and regrowth of healthy skin cells. It allows for better product penetration and increases their effectiveness. Your skin will immediately feel smoother, appear brighter and more youthful, and be more refined. The procedure is quick, safe and requires no downtime.
Extractions
Blackheads and pimples impede the skin’s health, as well as radiance and clarity. An extraction is the process of clearing a clogged or compacted pore by manual or mechanical means.
Serum Application
Now your skin is ready for fast absorbing liquids loaded with concentrated ingredients to improve skin conditions including acne, dryness, fine lines, wrinkles, redness and hyperpigmentation.
Massage
Like the rest of the body, face muscles require exercise, stimulation and relaxation to maintain a healthy appearance. Facial massage stimulates blood circulation in the skin, which regenerates skin and slows the signs of aging. Our massage includes the often neglected areas of neck and décolleté which are known for dehydration and muscle tension.
Mask Application
Masks are instant beautifiers and a great addition to any home care regimen. There are many different kinds of facial masks including clay, gel or cream, sheet, thermal, and foam, just to name a few. Depending on their ingredients, they can firm and tone the skin, refine pores, draw out impurities, help clear up blemishes, increase hydration, calm and soothe, diminish lines and wrinkles and give a rejuvenated appearance.
Finishing Touches
Every treatment finishes with an application of moisturizer, sunblock and optional mineral powder application to protect your face from the elements, as well as recommendations for your home skincare regimen.

It stimulates cellular activity to increase collagen and elastin production, reduces inflammation, speeds healing, increases circulation, destroys acne bacteria and promotes skin wellness.
Muscle Stimulation
We gently stimulate facial muscles to firm skin, improve circulation in skin and muscles, and stimulate lymph flow and cellular metabolism. It’s like anti-aging fitness training for your face!
Ultrasound
An effective and painless add-on service wherein high-level sound waves generate thermal energy deep below the skin’s surface, promoting cellular renewal and repair. This treatment stimulates circulation, tightens enlarged pores, encourages lymphatic drainage, and improves skincare product penetration. It can even be used on sensitive skin, including that affected by with Rosacea. Incorporate with a treatment for an instantly more refined and healthy looking complexion.

Mechanical vibrations are applied to stretched or tensed muscles of face and neck. The vibrations condition muscle tone, activate cell metabolism, stimulate lymph flow, help improve acne conditions, soften fine lines and wrinkles, and improve complexion.

Micropeel
For an instantly radiant complexion, the two clinical procedures of dermaplaning and a gentle chemical peel combine to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and promote collagen production. With minimal recovery time, the most common side effects are minor redness and sensitivity.

LED light therapy is a painless, relaxing, non-invasive 30-minute treatment with multiple benefits. It stimulates cellular activity to increase collagen and elastin production, reduces inflammation, speeds healing, increases circulation, destroys acne bacteria and promotes skin wellness. Effects are cumulative, and we recommend a series of six to twelve treatments, depending on need.
Micro-Infusion
Non-invasive modalities refine skin texture, reduce fine lines and promote a more even complexion. Following a light exfoliation, ultra fine meso-tips create micro openings in the epidermis to activate collagen and elastin production. Active ingredients penetrate deeply in epidermis. The treatment concludes with ultrasound to achieve longer lasting results. Not suitable for rosacea, active acne and very sensitive skin conditions.
