Facial treatments

The skin is the largest organ in the body. As we age, all physiological mechanisms slow down. The skin needs certain ingredients to prevent malnutrition of the skin, which results in sagging, wrinkles, and excessive brown spots on the skin.

Chemical Peel

A chemical peel can be used to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improve texture/tone, reduce pore size, increase hydration and moisture retention, give skin a smoother appearance and diminish the appearance of hyperpigmentation. Layers of product are applied based on your unique skin composition and needs.

O2 Lift

The Image O2 lift is a revolutionary facial treatment. Designed to exfoliate, illuminate and oxygenate all skin types. This treatment infuses oxygen, plant-derived stem cells, peptides and a high concentration of enzymatic botanicals in your skin.

Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning is a form of manual exfoliation similar in theory to microdermabrasion but without the use of suction or abrasive crystals. An esthetician grade, sterile blade is stroked along the skin at an angle to gently “shave off” dead skin cells from the epidermis. Dermaplaning also temporarily removes the fine vellus hair of the face, leaving a very smooth surface.

Medical Aesthetics FAQ

What is a chemical peel?
A chemical peel is a peeling treatment that uses a formula to safely remove the outer layer of dead skin cells. It’s also an effective way to reduce the signs of aging, fine lines and wrinkles, dry skin, excessively oily skin, acne, acne scars, pigmentation (sun damage) and melasma.
What does a chemical peel treat?
Chemicals peels have been used for many years as a beauty enhancer. Modern chemical peels are designed to treat: Sun damage such as sunspots, freckles, melasma, pigmentation and age or liver spots, fine lines and wrinkles, rough, dry skin, acne scarring, skin discoloration or pigmentation, blackheads and clogged pores, and excessively oily skin.
What long-term results should I expect?
Peels strengthen collagen bonds and tighten elastic tissues within the skin. This softens or erases fine lines and wrinkles, and gives your skin a firmer, brighter, more youthful look. We offer safe and effective peels suitable for all skin types, and produce predictable and noticeable results after one peel and significant results after three to six peels.
How does it work?
Chemical peels work by using special formulas to break down the structural bonds within the top layer of skin. After the outer layer of dead cells peel away, fresh, new skin is exposed. Your skin looks and feels firmer and smoother. Peels also provide long-term benefits by boosting cell turnover and encouraging collagen production.
What is IPL
This all depends on how each individual responds to treatment and IPL photorejuvenation is a safe FDA approved light-based therapy that improves the overall condition of your skin. IPL increases collagen production naturally, decreases redness and broken capillaries, lightens pigmentation, and treats, acne scars and rosacea.
How does IPL work?
The Intense Pulsed Light is attracted to the browns, reds, and deeper collagen tissues. The heat generated from the light targets and vaporizes the browns, coagulates the reds, and heats the deeper collagen tissues. The body’s healing mechanisms then takes over and sloughs off the browns, absorbs the reds, and thickens the collagen fibres.
How many treatments will I need?

We recommend 1-3 treatments spaced out 4 weeks apart. This treatment can be done yearly for maintenance. 

What is dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a simple and safe procedure for exfoliating the epidermis and ridding the skin of fine vellus hair (peach fuzz).
How many treatments are required?
There is no minimum or maximum amount of treatments needed but we recommend this treatment to be done every 4-6 weeks for best results.
Is there downtime?
The answer is NO! This treatment is a non-invasive form of exfoliation therefore there is no downtime. It is great to get prior to a big event such as a wedding.
Will the hair grow back thicker?
The hair will NOT grow back thicker. Dermaplaning does not interact with the hair follicle itself and cannot physically alter the growth pattern.
