MICRODERMABRASION

Microdermabrasion or resurfacing of the skin, is removing the outermost layer of dry, rough, damaged skin cells.  Just below this layer lies healthier, new fresh looking skin. 

The DiamondSkin technology, utilizes a hand held wand embedded with tiny micro sized diamond chips, effectively exfoliating away dead skin cells. Because there are no crystals used in the treatments, the area around the eyes, nose and mouth can effectively be treated, leaving your skin fresher, healthier with an enhanced surface quality of your skin feeling like silk.

The underlying epidermis is stimulated by the abrasion of the diamond tipped wand and the vacuum which removes the dead skin cells.  The benefits of microdermabrasion treatments are many. NO down time, as normal activities are resumed immediately, it is non invasive.   Treatments are quick about 40 minutes and virtually pain free.  Brighter, clearer and more even toned skin.  Skin texture is greatly improved, immediately more vibrant.   The positive effects are cumulative in a series of treatments, allowing the skin to turn over more quickly resulting in collagen and elastin stimulation, less lines, softening of wrinkles, a reduction in acne scarring and hyper-pigmentation, more hydration and skin vibrancy, better quality and skin integrity, resulting in an overall more youthful appearance.

 

MICRO SKIN NEEDLING/COLLAGEN INDUCTION THERAPY (CIT)

Micro Skin Needling is a cost effective treatment used successfully to treat fine lines, wrinkles, photo damaged skin, acne scarring, stretch marks.  Skin Needling is safe easy, and can be performed on all skin types and on any part of the body safely, as opposed to ablative laser and chemical peel treatments, the epidermis remains in contact and not totally damaged.  For this reason the procedure can be repeated safely and can reach areas of the body where laser and chemical peels cannot be performed such as the eyes where crows feet and under eye lines are apparent, as well as the lip area to enhance fuller lips naturally instead of fillers, as well as reducing the tiny vertical lines above the upper lip.

Micro Skin Needling is a fractional micro delivery of tiny needles into the epidermis and dermis, encouraging the power of the bodies ability to re-grow and repair through 3 phases of Collagen Induced Therapy. The body  starts to repair itself immediately upon impact of injury.Phase 1 is the release of growth factors from fibroblasts, (cells that make connective tissue), keratinnocytes (skin cells) and monocytes (white blood cells) all culminating into Phase 11, where collagen, elastin and angiogenesis (vascular network of nutrients and oxygen) occur, resulting into Phase 111. This is the final phase of the tissue remodeling process, where new collagen and skin tightening can be seen, resulting in new healthy tissue replacing those areas of concern on all parts of the face, neck and body.

  • Acne and surgical scars
  • Melasma
  • Crows feet
  • Stretch Marks
  • Skin texture irregularities
  • Loose Skin

Because the procedure never involves thermal energy (heat, such as a laser) or chemicals, the fractional controlled injury of the skin can recover more quickly with little to no downtime.

A series of treatments are needed for optimal results.

CHEMICAL PEELS

Chemical Peels can help to promote a youthful appearance by repairing and maintaining healthy skin, address and prevent chronic skin issues.

Chemical Peels can improve skin tone and texture, fade dark spots, brighten a dull, blotchy, uneven complexion due to sun damage, hormones and scarring. Peels can also dissolve blackheads, and kill acne causing bacteria, address frown lines and creases above and around lip area. Chemical peels can help stimulate collagen and elastin production, delivering an overall youthful healthy appearance.

Different types of peels, strength, and depth will address different skin issues. Not all peel solutions produce results in the same way. A consultation is necessary to determine which chemical peel is best for you. Deeper peels require more down time. A series of peels as well as combining them with other modalities may be needed in order to achieve your specific goal.

It is important to remember a chemical peel is a controlled injury to the skin by the application of acid. By intentionally causing this injury, the body responds immediately to repair by amping up collagen and elastin which is the support system for the epidermis, also causing the outermost layers of skin to slough off, revealing newer, healthier skin – an overall youthful complexion.

VEINWAVE THERAPY

Veinwave is a revolutionary advanced procedure to treat spider veins anywhere on your body, but is normally used to treat veins and redness on the face and chest. Its biggest advantage is that Veinwave can easily treat even the tiniest veins that cannot be treated by typical techniques like Laser Therapy.

Veinwave Therapy is a minimally invasive technique which uses thermocoagulation to heat and close vessels immediately with an electrical device. An ultra-fine insulated needle will be inserted into the outer-most layer of your skin without actually piercing the vessel itself. The vessel is then destroyed and disappears immediately. I know the word ‘needle’ probably makes you cringe already, but you really needn’t fear this procedure. The needle is so fine and thin, you will probably feel no pain.

CoolSculpting™ & Slim Light Therapy

We are pleased and honored to be working with Slim Silhouettes and Dr. Nichols, one of Virginia Beach’s top provider of Cool Sculpting and Slim Light Therapy. Cool Sculpting is the number 1 non invasive fat cell removal system in the world.
Patented non invasive Cool Sculpting Technology freezes and removes up to 20-25% of fat cells in the treated area.

Slim Light Therapy, the number one medical Red Light System to immediately lose inches even after the first treatment. A specific wave length of Red Light can puncture a fat cell causing it to immediately drain resulting in immediate inch loss

Both technologies can be combined for a more custom approach to fat and inch loss immediately and permanently.*
