Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive spa procedure that rejuvenates the appearance of the skin by treating sun damage, scarring, wrinkles and other unwanted skin problems. This procedure uses a gentle stream of tiny particles to exfoliate the outer layer of skin, leaving fresh, younger-looking skin and a renewed appearance. Microdermabrasion may be combined with other procedures such as chemical peels or laser treatment.

Dermapen

Dermapen is a new technology which utilizes micro-needling and requires minimal downtime. The device creates uniform micro injuries to the skin which encourages the skin to heal through its own physiology. The micro injuries trigger wound healing leading to a promotion of growth factors that stimulate collagen and elastin production which enhances skin rejuvenation and may improve scarring.

Facials

Chemical Peels | Microdermabrasion | Facials | Lombard | Carol StreamAs we age, the rate at which our skin sheds and replenishes itself slows down. This leaves a layer of dead cells on the surface of the skin, contributing to an aged appearance. Facials help exfoliate the damaged layer to reveal the younger, healthier skin beneath. Some of the ingredients used can be natural fruits and plant extracts, essential oils, vitamins, collagen and elastin. Facials reduce the signs of aging and can also improve skin conditions such as acne, dry or oily skin, and uneven texture or pigmentation. Facials are tailored to each patient for optimal results.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels remove damaged outer layers of skin on the face to smooth texture, reduce scarring, and remove blemishes and pre-cancerous growths to produce healthy, glowing skin. Peel formulas and strengths are tailored to each patient. Peels need to complemented with a good skin care regimen at home to maximize the results for radiant skin.

Microcurrent

As you age, your body loses much of its natural electrical energy, leading to a breakdown of collagen and elastin in your skin. This causes sagging, lines, and wrinkles. Beneath your skin, the facial muscles are affected by years of repeated facial expressions and gravity.

Microcurrent treatment is a non-surgical face tightening technique to fight these effects. It works by applying a painless electric current into the skin’s cells and tissues, as well as the facial muscles underneath. This tightens the skin and facial muscles, giving your face a more youthful appearance.

The microcurrent treatment works by emitting electrical frequencies that mimic your body’s own electrical signals. This speeds up cell metabolism and elimination of cellular waste and impurities. It also helps your skin rebuild its collagen and elastin, which restores your skin's firmness and flexibility. The benefits of microcurrent treatment include improved skin tone and coloration, reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, and firming of sagging areas of the face.

Waxing

Waxing | Naperville | Wheaton | Lombard | Carol StreamWaxing is a convenient and effective way to remove unwanted facial or body hair. We offer waxing for all parts of your body, including eyebrows, upper lip, underarms, legs, back, bikini, and anywhere else you might have undesired hair.

After a waxing treatment, you can expect to leave with smooth, beautiful skin. At the end of the treatment, we will apply a soothing lotion, ensuring your comfort and maintaining the softness of your skin. Because the waxing removes hair at its roots, the hair will not grow back for several weeks.
