THE INFUSION

The first non-chemical peel in the skin care industry that creates a substantial increase in your cellular activity and significantly stimulates collagen production.

Instead of wounding the epidermis (visible skin) with overly aggressive ingredients, The Infusion will gently resurface your skin by feeding vitamins and nutrients to the dermis below, where your skin cells are born and aging begins, which results in an increase in cellular turnover where renewal can effectively take place. Increased cellular turnover and increased collagen production creates youthful, glowing skin!

Benefits
  • Suitable for every skin type, ethnicity, and condition
  • Fully-customized to your individual needs every time
  • Does not break the skin down like other peels
  • Does not increase sun-sensitivity like other peels
  • 30-day collagen production increase
  • Kills Demodex mite that is linked to rosacea
  • Unlike a traditional peel, The Infusion feels comfortable, relaxing, and luxurious
Contraindications
  • Clients using Retin-A or and prescription topical tretinoin in the last 30 days
  • Clients using Accutane in the last 6 months
Treatment Options
  • Best Results come from monthly visits
  • May be repeated every 3-4 weeks, not to exceed 12 in a year
  • It is recommended that you be using a recommended Osmosis Vitamin A serum for a month prior to receiving an Infusion, but I can customize to occasionally make an exception.

ULTRASONIC SPATULA

The Ultrasonic Spatula is used in almost every facial I offer.

It has wide therapeutic uses and great results that every single client benefits from. The Ultrasonic spatula is a tiny metal spatula that oscillates at 28,000 vibrations per second, so fast that you can’t even see it! When applied against your skin with the appropriate cleansing solution, it pulverizes the fluid, creating a “pressure washing” effect. Additionally, it can be used to “push in” vital nutrients and micro-massage the skin tissue.


DERMAFILING

Dermafiling is a holistic alternative to traditional microdermabrasion.

Dermafiles are a skin polishing and resurfacing tool made of stainless steel and finely crushed cosmetic diamonds. This diamond head is the same as a traditional diamond microdermabrasion machine, but since the files are not attached to a machine, your skin will not suffer the harsh effects of vacuum suction, which can break delicate capillaries (tiny blood vessels) and stretch the skin. They come in three variations of grit and hand-held, so I have total control over the exfoliation process.

Benefits
  • Immediately reveals velvety smooth, fresh skin
  • Chemical-free exfoliation
  • Completely customizable
  • Improves tone and texture of sun damaged skin, scars, fine lines and clogged pores
Contraindications
  • Acneic skin
  • Clients using Retin-A, Retinol or hydroxy acids must discontinue use 5 days before and 3 days after

DERMAPLANING

Dermaplaning (skin blading) is a manual exfoliation method.

A surgical blade gently strokes your face to painlessly remove the outer layers of dead skin cells leaving the skin immediately smooth, supple and free of any “peach fuzz.”

Benefits
  • Instantaneous results reveal smooth, supple skin
  • Chemical-free exfoliation
  • A hair-removal alternative to waxing and shaving that does not change the structure of the hair, so hair grows back the same
Contraindications
  • Acneic skin or skin with numerous raised lesions
  • Clients taking blood thinners (there is a potential to “nick” the skin

RADIANCY FSD MICROPHOTOTHERAPY

Microphototherapy is my alternative to aggressive laser treatments!

It uses LHE Technology (Light and Heat Energy) to reach deeply into the skin, delivering effective and safe skin rejuvenation. It brings the skin back to life!

Benefits
  • Non-invasive, non-abrasive treatment with no down time
  • Clinically proven results
  • Proven safe and effective for almost all skin types (not appropriate for Melasma)
  • Decrease pore size
  • Restore a natural, radiant glow to your skin
  • Creates a creamy, luminous complexion by homogenizing skin tone (reducing both pigmentation and vascular “blotchiness”)
  • Calms rosacea
  • Reduce fine lines and wrinkles
  • Increase elasticity
  • Stimulates fibroblast activity, resulting in new collagen production
Contraindications
  • Due to the application of a flashing light, if you have a history of seizures, this technology may not be right for you.
  • Pregnancy
  • Clients taking antibiotics or any medications that increase photosensitivity
  • Clients using Retin-A, Retinol or hydroxy acids must discontinue use 48 hours before treatment
Treatment Options
  • By giving the skin the energy it craves, visible results can be seen in just one treatment!
  • The collagen-building process takes time. A series of 8 treatments over 4 weeks will pump up your cells with the fuel it needs for long-lasting transformation. Best results are seen after a series, followed by 4-6 week maintenance sessions.
  • Special Pricing is available for clients committed to a series.

RADIANCY CLEAR TOUCH LIGHT

This technology is virtually the same as the Radiancy FSD Microphototherapy, but has been adapted to treat acne.

It introduces oxygen radicals that powerfully kill bacteria while not compromising the protective barrier of the skin. I love using it to quickly spot treat acne lesions and often combine it with my Celluma LED Therapy (see below).

Benefits
  • FDA-cleared for the treatment of acne
  • Kills acne bacteria and reduces inflammation
  • Accelerates repair and replenishment of damaged cells, improving texture and lightening discoloration
  • Effectively clears acne without the need for harmful medications and side effects
Contraindications
  • Due to the application of a flashing light, if you are epileptic or have a history of seizures, this technology may not be right for you.
  • Pregnancy
  • Clients taking antibiotics or any medications that increase photosensitivity
  • Clients using Retin-A, Retinol or hydroxy acids must discontinue use 48 hours before treatment
Treatment Options
  • Within 24 Hours, inflammation is significantly reduced.

  • Special pricing is available for clients committed to a series.
 

THE LUNI

This tool combines three different technologies to lift, tone and tighten the skin:  LED, Ultrasound, and Positive and Negative ions.

This technology feels like a deep tissue massage for your skin cells. It’s also like a workout for the face and my clients love how it feels. It’s so relaxing!

Benefits
  • Tones and tightens the face by “working out” by stimulating collagen and the connective tissue below the skin
  • Improves the appearance of challenging areas like the neck and marionette lines around the mouth
  • Improves blood and lymph circulation, increasing cell nutrition and supporting skin detoxification
  • Deeply cleanses the skin with negative ions
  • Delivers customized, active ingredients deeper into the skin for faster anti-aging results with positive ions
  • Feels incredibly relaxing
Contraindications
  • Because of the use of an electrical current, clients who are pregnant or have a pacemaker or metal implants are not candidates for this technology
Treatment Options
  • One session immediately lifts and tightens the appearance of your skin, so it’s wonderful for special occasions!
  • Just like working out your body, truly toning the muscles of the face takes time and consistency, so a series of 8-10 treatments over 4-6 weeks, followed by monthly maintenance sessions.
  • Special pricing is available for clients committed to a series.

REZENERATE

The Rezenerate Wand is my alternative to micro-needling and painful medical treatments like The Skin Pen.

The Rezenerate is a professional-grade, state-of-the-art precision cosmetic tool featuring nano-technology designed to deliver immediate results with long-term benefits. These pyramid-like nano-structures are so fine, they are ⅓ that of a single strand of hair! Additionally, these pyramid structures engage the body’s natural restorative properties stimulating cell repair and regeneration, which create never before seen results to the skin.

During the facial treatment, the application of the Rezenerate Wand over active serums and/or the Facial Infusion, helps the the skin quickly and deeply absorb these ingredients and also becomes more receptive with your home care. This increases the effectiveness of your products and cellular turnover with a delayed micro peel. This treatment delivers serums right to the edge of the dermal layer, restoring the ideal micro-environment your skin needs for optimal function and regeneration.   In a matter of days a brand new, smoother, more radiant and even toned layer of skin will start to appear. This treatment awakens the skin’s collagen cells, which become sluggish and stagnant as we age. Over the course of two weeks skin firmness and elasticity is increased, leaving you with a youthful, invigorated appearance.

Benefits
  • No pain, downtime, or risk of infection
  • Inexpensive alternative to costly procedures
  • Increases product absorption and efficacy substantially
  • Helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles instantly
  • The outer layer of the skin is immediately rejuvenated, conditioned, and plump
  • Addresses aging, blemishes, and sunspots
  • Provides a delayed gentle micro peel
  • So gentle and safe that it can be used around the eyes and directly on the lips
  • Long-term improvements can be seen even after a single facial*

*This is because the skin becomes more receptive to home care products following the Rezenerate treatment, it is essential that you are on a regimen recommended by me.

Contraindications
  • Nursing or pregnant women
  • Undiagnosed lesions or skin infections
  • Recent herpes outbreaks
  • Some cases of Rosacea
  • Psoriasis
  • Diabetes and other auto-immune system disorders
Treatment Expectations
  • From 0 to 24 hours: fine lines and wrinkles will fade and the face will be plumper and more voluminous.
  • Days 3-5: The old dead skin will gently begin to peel away.
  • Days 7-10: A new healthier skin will begin to surface, a healthy glow will be present.
  • Days 10-14: Maximal results will appear and skin will look its best. Longer term improvements from the Rezenerate Facial will continue to appear over the next 60-120 with firmer healthier skin overall.
  • Facials are recommended every 2-4 weeks for optimal results and ultimately depend on individual needs.

CELLUMA BIOPHOTONIC (LED) THERAPY

LED Therapy is one of my favorite technologies because it’s so versatile, natural, and safe.

I especially love it for irritated, inflamed rosacea and acne-prone skin. It’s also my go-to for Melasma and all types of hyperpigmentation when done regularly, in addition to improving fine lines and wrinkles. I like to think of it as harnessing the power of a rainbow!

LED is a non-invasive treatment that delivers energy to your cells, similar to how plants absorb light via photosynthesis. This light enters the mitochondria--the “powerhouse of the cell,” generating ATP production--the “fuel” of our cells, which improves every function of our skin. LED was discovered by NASA, and it’s been proven to accelerate cellular metabolism by activating cytochromes, the part of our cells that respond to light and color, increasing their energy levels to stimulate tissue growth and regeneration. DNA synthesis quadruples in collagen-stimulating fibroblasts--the foundation of smooth, healthy skin. The Celluma specifically applies a combination of LED light energy with a unique photo-modulation technology that has been proven to increase the skin’s ability to absorb the energy from the light.

Benefits
  • FDA approved
  • Increase circulation
  • Stimulate the production of collagen and elastin
  • Increases wound-healing by repairing and replenishing damaged cells, including melanocytes--the cells that contribute to hyperpigmentation
  • Decrease pore size
  • Kill bacteria that causes acne
  • Increase moisture retention
  • Firm your skin
Contraindications
  • You must wait 5 days after Botox or Cosmetic Fillers
  • Clients with epilepsy may want to consult their physician prior to treatment
  • Clients using Retin-A, Retinol or hydroxy acids must discontinue use 5 days before
  • Clients must be off Accutane/Isotretinoin for at least 6 months
  • You may need to take a break from any medications that cause photosensitivity prior to treatment
Treatment Options
  • In just one session, skin will appear calmer and more radiant.
  • For best results, a series of 8 treatments over 4 weeks is recommended.
  • Special pricing is available for clients committed to a series.
