Now Offering 

The Stratapen® has 36 fine needles that deliver microscopic punctures to the skin. These tiny punctures force the skin’s natural healing system to repair the epidermis and dermis, stimulating the generation of new collagen and elastin. This natural reparative process allows for a smoother surface texture, improved tone and pigment, and improved laxity and support. In addition, the Stratapen® is a customizable treatment, allowing for unique and individual approaches to a specific patient’s skin needs. The treatment can be customized such that the depth of the microneedles penetrating the skin is adjusted. And while it is great for the face, it can also treat other parts of the body, like the décolleté, arms, legs, back, and abdomen.  This increased collagen and elastin in turn create renewed support and structure to the skin, resulting in improved firmness, resilience, and rejuvenation.


We are pleased to offer a variety of treatments that will help you look and feel your best. The following cosmetic services are currently available.

  • To best assess your skin's needs, we recommend a consultation with our esthetician Deb DePree prior to your first cosmetic treatment.
  • Sun protection before or after treatments is vital to their success. Prior to your treatment, make sure you clarify with our esthetician or medical assistant what products if any, you should use or avoid.

Chemical peels are superficial skin peel treatments that help rejuvenate aging skin to give it a fresh healthy glow. We offer a variety of peels, including lactic, glycolic, and salicylic. These peels offer a range of potency; we use them to tailor our treatment to the needs of your unique skin.

Dermapeel is an exfoliation treatment a step above a microdermabrasion or chemical peel. Dead skin cells are gently scraped from your face and then a peel is performed, followed by a CO2 ball. Dermapeels leave the skin feeling soft and smooth. These are great for skin rejuvenation and sun damage but are not recommended for acne-damaged skin. This treatment may cause mild redness but cosmetics may be applied immediately after receiving treatment. The peeling that occurs later is mild and gradual.

Using the brand new technology of the Vectus laser, we are able to provide permanent hair reduction. Laser light is used to target and destroy hair cells responsible for hair growth without harming the surrounding tissue. The Vectus uses Skintel, which reads the pigment in your skin to calibrate the laser according to your skin color. Note that multiple treatments will be required to receive optimal results as your hair grows in several phases. Faces, chests, underarms, arms, legs, and bikini areas may be treated.

Microdermabrasion is an exfoliation treatment that uses a gentle abrasion tool and vacuum to remove the dead outer layer of your skin. This treatment leaves your skin smooth and promotes the growth of healthy new skin cells. It is great for rejuvenation, sun damage, and minor acne scars. Microdermabrasion is most commonly performed on the face but it is also great for arms, chests, necks, and backs. There is little to no downtime following this treatment and cosmetics may be applied immediately after. 

Using our Max G Icon IPL (Intense Pulse Light), we perform photorejuvenation, which uses optimized light to deliver energy targeted to red and brown areas. Photofacials improve the look of sun spots, age spots, rosacea, capillaries, and hemangiomas. There is little to no downtime following this treatment and it may be performed on your face, neck, chest, arms, hands, and legs.  

We also offer non-ablative laser resurfacing, which uses a fractional laser to send microbeams through the epidermis, the top-most layer of the skin, into the dermis, the layer beneath it. This laser stimulates the body's natural healing process to create new, healthy tissue to replace the outer damaged, aging layer. Prior to performing this treatment, we apply a numbing cream to reduce sensitivity. Resurfacing is ideal for treating sun damage and acne scars; it improves the skin's overall tone and texture. There is minimal downtime.
