Facial Treatments

Signature Facial                                                             

This facial consists of deep cleaning, customized exfoliation, a gentle massage with steam, extractions, and a customized mask. This is followed by hydration and sunscreen SPF 50 on the face, neck and chest. This facial treatment can also be performed on the back.


The skin is exfoliated using a microdermabrasion machine to perform gentle abrasion and vacuum with either a crystal or diamond tip to buff away dead skin cells. The skin is rehydrated and protected with a customized mask and sunscreen SPF 50.


This facial treatment is a simple and safe procedure that removes dead skin cells and vellus hair, also known as peach fuzz. The use of a small sterile blade is used while holding the skin taut and swiping the blade in gentle motions across the face. The skin is rehydrated and protected with a customized mask and sunscreen SPF 50.

Chemical Peels

An Alpha-Hydroxy (Glycolic), (Lactic), Beta-hydroxy (Salicylic) or Fruit Enzyme acid Peel strength is selected depending on your skin concerns, type, and sensitivity and is applied to the skin. The solution produces a mild stinging sensation for 5 to 10 minutes, is neutralized and then removed. The skin is rehydrated and protected with a customized mask and sunscreen SPF 50.

Radiance Peel by Obagi

This peel is a superficial salicylic acid-based chemical peel that exfoliates and helps improve your overall complexion providing firmer, smoother, and brighter-looking skin. This peel also decreases fine lines and wrinkles, rough, uneven skin, blemishes and mild to moderate photo-aging.

Body Treatments


Endermologie is a noninvasive device which uses vacuum massage technology to loosen fat cells that get trapped under the skin and produce cellulite.  Undergoing a series of treatments will help reduce dimpling as well as improve the overall appearance of the skin.  Post op liposuction and tummy tuck patients benefit too. For optimal results, a series of 10-15, 45 minute treatments, done weekly will give the best reduction of cellulite.  We also recommend monthly treatments to maintain longer term results.

MLD-Manuel Lymphatic Drainage

A post-operative procedure that reduces swelling, pain, and discomfort while

accelerating the healing process.


Similar to Endermologie in it’s use of vacuum massage technology, Velasmooth adds infrared light and radio frequency energy to target the deeper tissues.  This additional energy will safely heat up connective tissue just below the skin as well as deeper fat cells, causing them to break down and be naturally reabsorbed.  Patients with more advanced cellulite and post-operative patients will benefit the most  from this technology.  8-10 treatments are recommended for optimal results.
