Only microderm abrasion offers you the soothing, nurturing benefits of a hands-on treatment, combined with the effective use of ultra-fine micro crystals to remove the superficial dead skin cells, improving texture, tone, and appearance and even minimizing the appearance of scars.
Your skilled esthetician will carefully control the exfoliating effects of your treatments—applying more pressure on your cheeks, for example, and a gentler touch on delicate areas around your eyes.
After just one treatment, your face will feel softer and smoother, and look radiant. With continued treatments, you can achieve the long- term benefits of improved skin texture, more even skin tone and diminished pores.
Peels of varying depths and strengths reduce fine lines, even out skin tone and rejuvenate skin. This excellent anti-aging treatment is tailored to suit your skin’s needs and may be done as an individual treatment or added on during a facial. Customized packages are available.
Today, more and more women are opting for the convenience of a wash-and-wear face, with eyebrows, eyeliners and lip liner that won't wear off.
Permanent cosmetics are the perfect solution for the busy and/or athletic woman, or for those who have trouble seeing to apply makeup.
Permanent cosmetics can also be used for nipple areola reconstruction after a mastectomy.
Our body treatments are customized to meet your personal needs, whether you wish to tighten, exfoliate, or detoxify your skin. After repeated treatments, the long-term benefits will be a healthy glowing skin.
Relax, wrapped in firming body gel, rich in anti-aging sea minerals. A massage works with the firming elixir to immediately hydrate, tighten and stimulate your skin. After repeated treatments, the long-term anti-aging effects bring noticeable results to skin that has lost some elasticity due to childbirth, sun damage or significant weight loss.
You never have to tweeze or shave when you can enjoy the long- lasting results of professional hair removal for eyebrows, upper lip, chin, jaw and bikini line. In addition to being a long-lasting hair removal method, waxing is also effective in removing large amounts of hair at one time.
Electrolysis hair removal is an effective way to permanently get rid of any unsightly body hair you may have. It's the only method approved by the FDA for permanent hair removal. Unlike laser treatments, electrolysis does not target hair pigment (color), so it is effective for many hair and skin types. Multiple sessions are required to achieve best possible results.
Your facial begins with a skin analysis that lets us create a customized treatment designed for the needs of your unique skin type. Luxurious hour-long facials include a double cleansing, exfoliating and extractions (if necessary), as well as a relaxing face, neck, shoulder and hand massage, mask and moisturizing.
A personalized skin care regime will be recommended to extend the benefits of your facial and help maintain the integrity of your skin.
This personalized treatment will help smooth and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, leaving your complexion feeling fresh and rejuvenated.

For those who want a firmer, younger-looking face and neck, but are not ready for cosmetic surgery, Ultherapy provides an appealing alternative. Ultherapy, the only FDA-approved non-surgical, non- invasive procedure uses ultrasound technology to safely lift the skin on the face and neck. It works by directing low levels of concentrated heat below the skin’s surface to stimulate the growth of new collagen, the protein necessary for conserving youthful skin and reducing wrinkles.
Benefits of Ultherapy
- No surgical incisions
- One-time, 60- to 90- minute treatment
- Immediate return to work and daily activities
- Natural-looking results that last a year or longer
Natural, Noticeable Results
Ultherapy lifts and tightens the skin on the neck, under the chin, along the jaw line and on the brow (depending on the areas you have treated). Results are natural-looking, because they occur gradually over the course of two to three months as you develop new, more elastic collagen. Friends may comment that you look more rested, younger and vibrant.

And of course—you come away feeling fabulous!

“My skin is very dry after 11 months of chemotherapy. The estheticians gave me a facial, scalp, hand and foot massage that was beyond my expectations – absolutely phenomenal. Using their extensive training in oncology esthetics, they applied just the right amount of pressure on my hands and feet so they would not peel or crack. I was totally relaxed after the treatment, and my skin was soft and radiant.”A recent grateful patient
