"I have been going here for laser hair removal since they opened. I think added in a monthly facial, and tried facial laser and now continue with monthly appointments. THey are friendly, experienced and on my Christmas gift list!:) I would highly recommend them for a consult. I started off with freckles all over my face and now have them very limited, using the Obagi product and treatements monthly."

Our Newest Procedure is Revolutionary!

It seems like every day there’s a new beauty treatment that’s launched. Some work, some don’t and some are pure marketing hype. But, there’s one that recently caught our eyes. Sort of like an underground skin movement of sorts that’s sure to catch on like wildfire! A mixture of saline, lidocaine, hyaluronic acid and neuromodulators is put into a handheld microchanneling device replete with super thin gold-tipped needles. From there, the device is literally stamped onto the face and neck . Taking about 10 to 20 minutes to perform, the stamping continues until the device is empty of the mixture.

Micro Channeling (Micro Needling)

What is Micro-Channeling?
Micro-channeling, a form of Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), is based on the skin’s natural ability to repair itself when it suffers physical damage, such as cuts, burns, abrasions, puncture wounds, or other injuries. Immediately after an injury to the skin, our body begins the healing process, triggering new collagen production. 
The process of Micro-channeling intentionally creates superficial “micro-injuries” to the outermost layer of the skin, inducing the skins natural healing process, and therefore, stimulating new collagen to be produced.  This new collagen, not only helps improve skin's appearance, texture, and tone, it also allows for better penetration of skin care products. The microchannel tips create small channels in the epidermis which have been proven to increase serum absorption by up to 300%. The sterile, detachable, disposable tool tips vary in widths and sizes to provide the perfect amount of coverage for your for your face and body. When used with our stem-cell based MicroChannel Delivery Serum and aftercare serums , the skin is stimulated to regenerate stronger and healthier than before. 

What does Micro-Channeling improve and how soon will you see results?
This new, state-of-the-art, medical grade, skin treatment tool that is taking non-surgical skin treatments to a whole new level.  This uses a revolutionary skin resurfacing process, called micro-channeling, to help minimize fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, stretch marks, hyperpigmentation, and improve skin texture and tone.  This treatment is safe for all skin colors and types and is an  effective alternative to going under the knife! 

Results have began to show up within hours to a couple days after the first treatment. Some people express skin tightening feeling that day and most see dramatic changes within days of treatment!

Does it hurt and is there any down time?
Before the procedure we use a compounded topical numbing cream to reduce any discomfort you may experience. The treatment is relatively fast to make sure you have little to no discomfort at all. 

Some experience redness the day of. We suggest you don't make plans the day of just in case you have more redness then expected. But after the first day the redness is gone and you can return to all normal activities and applications of topical products like makeup, skin care systems etc.
