Facials & Chemical Peels

Our estheticians will evaluate your skin to figure out your skin type, tone, texture, and concerns. Using these four elements will help you make an educated decision about which facial treatment and/or chemical peels will work well for you. Working with a licensed Esthetician and keeping on a regular maintenance schedule, as well as at-home products and skincare routines, are key in order to achieve your best skin health.


This skin tightening treatment uses radiofrequency technology to tone, tighten, and promote collagen production in the skin. This treatment can be used on the face and the body, with no downtime! Many of my clients have seen positive results in cellulite reduction from an Exilis treatment.

Microneedling (SkinPen)

A Microneedling treatment uses a MicroPen device that causes controlled micro-injuries that stimulate your body’s natural wound healing process while minimizing cellular damage.

Microneedling treatments are great to treat acne, acne scarring, wrinkles, and fine lines, stretch marks, and overall improve skin texture and tone by stimulating collagen growth. The treatments are comfortable and well-tolerated and there is minimal downtime. We recommend a series of SkinPen treatments, as the best results are typically seen after 4-6 treatments. Initially, we recommend treatments every 6 weeks. Coordinating IPL laser treatments with SkinPen treatments can lead to exceptional results.

Vitamin Injections

Let us help you get balanced! It can be difficult to get all of the vitamins we need in our diets, and a vitamin injection is a great little boost. Vitamin injections are a great way to get additional energy, stamina, and wellness benefits. We offer a variety of vitamin cocktails and a la carte options to help you look and feel your best!

Laser Treatments


Intense Pulsed Light lasers are used to treat hyperpigmentation, sun damage, and facial vessels (redness). It is a non-ablative laser, meaning that no micro-wounds are made on the skin. This means downtime is minimal! Regular treatments, particularly with the Forever Young IPL settings, help stimulate collagen, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and help to even out skin color and tone.


The HALO laser is a hybrid fractional laser, meaning that it is both ablative (creates micro-wounds in the skin which are then filled in with new collagen) and non-ablative (creates tissue coagulation, stimulating collagen production without a micro-wound). Because of the strength of this HALO laser treatment, there is roughly a week of downtime which includes skin redness, peeling, and no make-up. But the advantage is the ability to address both superficial and deeper layers of tissue in a single treatment. The HALO treatment improves skin texture and tone, treats hyperpigmentation from sun exposure, and treats fine to moderate lines and wrinkles.


A nonablative fractional laser, LaseMD is a perfect treatment for the person-on-the-go. This treatment is quick (6-20 minutes) and resurfaces skin with zero downtime, unlike the HALO laser. A series of treatments is always recommended for optimal results.




Botox, Dysport, and Jeauveau are all known brand names for types of neurotoxins. When injected by a licensed medical professional, their primary use is to decrease the appearance of lines on the forehead, between the brows, and around our eyes.


Hyaluronic Fillers

Hyaluronic (HA) fillers are used to plump lips, rebuild and/or enhance the structure in the cheeks, jawline, chin, and temples of the face. A filler treatment helps soften lines, wrinkles, and shadows. There are a number of HA products on the market, ranging from very soft and flexible to robust and sturdy. Product choice is dependent on the treatment area and we will go over your options during your first appointment or consultation.


Sculptra is a product that virtually every single client could use! It is a collagen stimulant that helps younger clients (late 20’s early 30’s) hold on to the volume they still naturally have and produce. For clients in their mid/late thirties on up, Sculptra helps rebuild tissue that has been lost and naturally and gradually restores the structure and volume to the area.

PDO Threads

PDO threads are the piece in aesthetic medicine that we had been missing! They are perfect for providing a lift to areas that are beginning to show shadowing. I love threads because they provide lift without adding unwanted volume. Volume in the right places does wonders to rejuvenate the face, but too much volume can also work against us. It’s important to remember that facial harmony is the goal, and PDO threads help us achieve the balance we are aiming for!
