Services We Offer


SkinPen® is a medical-grade device with adjustable lengths and disposable straight needles to penetrate at a 90-degree angle. It is the first microneedling device in the world cleared by the U.​S. Food and Drug Administ­ration (FDA), clinically proven to safely and effectively treat facial acne scars for ages 22 and up. Patients may see results with as few as three treatments spaced within 30 days. Microneedling sessions usually require little downtime, making it a great option to quickly get you back to your busy life. Microneedling stimulates the body’s natural wound-healing process by causing controlled micro-injuries. The skin goes through a three-phase wound repair process:

  1. Inflammation: Piercing the skin triggers the immune system to disinfect the wounds, remove debris, increase blood flow and begin to create new tissue.
  2. Proliferation: The wound is rebuilt with new granulation cells.
  3. Remodeling: The wound is repaired with new dermal tissues and blood vessels.

Other benefits of SkinPen® include:

  1. Works for all skin types – dark to fair.
  2. Clinically shown to reduce the appearance of facial acne scars.
  3. Procedures take about 30 minutes.
  4. Microneedling procedures tend to cost less than alternatives. The cost varies depending on the size and number of treatment areas.


Vampire Facial®

If the Vampire Facial® sounds familiar, chances are you may have heard of celebrities opting for this treatment to keep them looking young. The procedure uses a technique for microneedling, followed by the application of PRP (platelet-rich plasma). The PRP is derived from the serum portion of the blood, which contains platelets (earning the vampire facial its name). The platelets contain high levels of growth factors, which stimulates the body to grow new, healthy cells and promote healing. This helps our skin function optimally, increasing everything from collagen to elastin, while also bringing antioxidant and hydrating properties. The process results in more youthful-looking skin and face.
