With more than 50 million Americans affected, acne is the most common skin disorder in the United States. The misconception that acne is primarily a problem for teens and that they’re the only patients in need of acne treatment disregards the millions of adults who have fought acne for decades. Caused primarily by diet, stress, and hormones, acne can affect teens, young adults, and men and women of all ages.

Even when acne is mild, this medical condition can result in physical scarring, anxiety, and emotional distress. Our medical aestheticians can use the latest procedures and product technology to custom-treat your acne issues. We avoid the cookie cutter approach, as success depends on your age, skin type, breakout diagnosis, and even acne type. Proper care of the skin and use of the right skincare products can make a significant difference in controlling acne. Advances in acne laser treatments and skin care treatments can give you the smooth and clear skin you’ve always wanted.

Back Facial

45 minutes • $90
Getting pampered usually means treating yourself to something you wouldn’t normally do. It can also mean treating yourself to something you simply can’t do. The back facial is the best of both: a luxurious, exfoliating treatment for your hard-to-reach backside. Back facials are particularly famed for combating the dreaded “backne.” Even if you don’t suffer from the condition, a back facial will leave your skin smooth and ready for even the deepest of plunging backline dresses. This back treatment begins with a cleansing and exfoliation of the area, followed by extractions of the impurities beneath the skin’s surface, and a mask is applied. Finally, the back is moisturized to restore nutrients and hydration. This back facial also includes a neck, shoulder, and back massage to compliment this restorative treatment.

Acne Peels

Depending on your needs, our aestheticians can improve the appearance of your skin by recommending a specific acid peel as a standalone treatment or as part of your acne or skincare treatment series. These chemical peels help control acne, revive dull and drab skin, smooth the complexion, diminish hyperpigmentation, minimize fine lines, and lightly firm and stimulate new collagen production for a healthy glow.

Glycolic Peel

$85; Series of six treatments for $450
Best done in a series of treatments, a glycolic peel is a mild acid solution that removes the damaged outer layers of the skin. A glycolic peel enhances and smooths the texture of the skin. It is an effective treatment for fine lines, wrinkles, and uneven skin pigmentation with little to no downtime.

Glytone by Enerpeel® PA – The Acne Peel

$125
Pyruvic acid A medium depth peel helps visibly reduce the appearance of pore size, even out skin tone and texture, and generally smooth the skin. It increases the thickness of the skin, stimulates collagen growth, and helps with elasticity in the dermal layer of the skin so that the skin looks younger and smoother. The intensity of this peel increases based on the number of layers applied. In addition to correcting fine lines and wrinkles, this peel is useful for improving skin tone and texture in addition to reducing the severity of acne blemishes. This peel is great for all skin types. For the best results, we recommend a series of two to four peels performed ten days apart.

Salicylic Acid Peel

$90, Series of six treatments for $480
Salicylic peels are beneficial in treating acne because they exfoliate and slough away dead skin cells. This effective treatment aids in breaking down the oil barrier of the skin, leaving the acne-prone client with less oily skin. This peel also gives way to a smoother skin texture.

ZO® Stimulator Peel

A revolutionary combination of salicylic, lactic, and citric acids exfoliates away dead skin cells and stimulates cellular turnover to reduce fine lines and improve skin tone and texture.

It can also reduce pore size and treat brown spots.

Acne Laser Treatments

Icon™ 1540 Laser

Price By Consultation
This non-ablative fractional laser treatment offers superior results with little to no downtime. The 1540 fractional microbeams penetrate deep into the skin, stimulating fibroblasts to create more collagen. The controlled thermal injury induced by the laser results in a natural healing process that forms new, healthy tissue. This non-ablative approach offers significant improvement of fine lines, loss of firmness, acne scarring, stretch marks, surgical scars, pigmentation, and uneven texture. A series of two to four treatments is generally recommended for optimal results.

Laser Genesis by CUTERA®

30 minutes • $250
This treatment utilizes non-invasive laser technology to safely, discretely and effectively treat fine lines, wrinkles, enlarged pores, diffused excessive redness, and acne scars. By gently heating the upper dermis well below your skin’s surface you can expect to see subtle yet consistent results after each treatment, without unwanted side effects such as bruising or excessive skin irritation. On average, you may require four to six treatments in order to achieve optimal results. Every patient’s condition and needs vary. This is a great addition to any of our facial treatments!

PicoSure® FOCUS™ Lens Array

$450 per treatment
The PicoSure® FOCUS™ Lens Array is a new and very unique laser that is the next generation for skin rejuvenation and revitalization. PicoSure® FOCUS™ Lens Array addresses fine lines, sun damage (pigment and skin discoloration), texture, acne scarring, and even stretch marks. Treatment is fast and gentle as the lens array reaches a precise depth of the skin so that during each pulse, only ten percent of the skin is being treated at the high-energy picosecond Focus level, with the lower level energy being used on the remaining 90 percent of the skin. This allows a deeper penetration into the dermis area under the skin, thus promoting collagen and elastin growth while also stimulating a non-traumatic tissue healing response to soften the tissue from scars and stretch marks. The result is a better outcome, shorter downtime, and higher safety for the skin. A series of three treatments spaced three to four weeks apart is recommended to achieve optimal results. The treatment is safe for all skin types and can be applied to face, neck, chest, legs, arms, and hands.

Acne Light Therapy

Microneedling for Acne

Collagen P.I.N. Microneedling

45 minutes • $250
The Collagen P.I.N. needles create small wounds in the skin, and the skin responds by producing new collagen and fresh, new cells. This technology successfully improves acne scarring, skin texture, pore appearance, stretch marks, melasma and pigmentation, and the appearance of wrinkles. Collagen P.I.N. microneedling is recommended as a series of four to six treatments for the best results. This treatment can be performed by your aesthetician.

Collagen P.I.N. Microneedling with DF Machine Treatment

75 minutes • $350
Following a Collagen P.I.N. microneedling treatment, maximum benefits may be achieved through treatment of the DF vitamin infusion or self-treatment with the Cosmetic Roll – CIT. The infusion of ENVIRON® products with high amounts of vitamin A, vitamin C, and antioxidants nutritionally equip the skin to allow it to respond and heal better. They also allow for maximum stimulation of collagen.

Surgical Needling

By Doctor’s Consultation Only
This treatment uses surgical needles to create temporary channels into the dermis of the skin. By stimulating the body’s own repair response, including the production of natural collagen and important growth factors, this treatment significantly reduces scarring and improves the elasticity and thickness of the skin. This procedure is performed by the doctor only.

RECOVERY TIP: Once you’ve had a skin needling treatment, there are a few things you should do to ensure that the treatment is 100 percent successful. During the first 24 hours after you’ve received this treatment, you should avoid using any skin products that aren’t comedogenic or specifically created to be used alongside a skin needling treatment. This includes makeup, sunblock, sunscreen or any other product that can cause skin irritation. Any topical product that can be absorbed through the skin should be avoided. Alcohol-based products will dry out your skin, so they should be avoided as well. You should also stay out of the sun for at least 24 hours after your treatment. This will stop the sun from doing any lasting damage to your skin.

Acne Treatment Enhancement Add-Ons

Make your acne treatment even more effective with one or more of the following procedures:

Laser Genesis by CUTERA®

30 minutes • $250

By gently heating the upper dermis well below your skin’s surface, you can expect to see subtle yet consistent results after each treatment without unwanted side effects such as bruising or excessive skin irritation. On average, you may require four to six treatments to achieve optimal results. Every patient’s condition and needs vary. Laser Genesis is a great addition to any of our facial treatments!

High Frequency

Add on to any Acne Facial for $10
This is a great compliment to any acne facial. The application of a high-frequency current promotes a cleansing antibacterial action that helps prevent the onset of acne. The skin is left feeling instantly energized, rosy, firm, refreshed, and noticeably softer. This enhancement helps to quickly heal and restore the skin’s health.

Sonophoresis Spot Treatment

$15
The use of Sonophoresis in skin treatment therapy is to provide enhanced permeability of the skin through the use of sound waves. This facilitates a far higher absorption of the active ingredients that are infused into the skin. As a result, there is a greater response to the agent due to better penetration, as well as a clearing up of cystic acne and a lightening of pigmentation from acne scarring. This is a favorable infusion procedure for those wishing to achieve maximum results with a minimum of discomfort.

Ultimate Eye Treatment using the Focus CIT

30 minutes • $35 to $50
This ultimate treatment contains an infusion of vitamin A, vitamin C, and peptides along with the use of a gentle peel and a micro needling focus kit to address tired eyes, crow’s feet, and dark circles by de-puffing, brightening, hydrating, and firming the delicate skin around the eyes.
