DiamondGlow Facials  – $250

DiamondGlow® is more than a facial. Unlike traditional wet facial treatments, which rely on chemical exfoliation to treat skin at the surface level, DiamondGlow’s® patented recessed diamond tip wand delivers a next-level resurfacing treatment that deeply cleans and rejuvenates the skin. DiamondGlow® is powered by SkinMedica® Pro-Infusion Serums, infused onto the skin when pores are still open and most receptive. Just 1 DiamondGlow® treatment enhances clarity and luminosity. You’ll see continued improvement in skin texture, clarity, and even forehead wrinkles with each treatment.

The Essential Glow – $1,225

If your moisturizer just isn’t cutting it, and you don’t want to rely on makeup to create the illusion of glowing and hydrated skin, this package is for you!


  • One Illuminating AOX Serum by ZO Skin Health for an immediate glow that looks beautiful under makeup or by itself with antiaging benefits.
  • Two syringes of Skinvive by Juvéderm, a skin booster injectable made of hyaluronic acid that improves smoothness and provides a hydrated “glow from within” appearance that lasts six months.
  • Three DiamondGlow Facials

Dermaplane – $65

A specialized tool gently shaves away the top layers of your skin, effectively exfoliating dead and dull skin. This procedure also removes peach fuzz from the face, allowing for beautiful makeup application. We love to incorporate dermaplaning into our facials, but offer it as a quick stand-alone service for those who appreciate routine dermaplaning every couple of weeks!

Also available as an Advanced Add-on to any facial service for $55.



Chemical Peels

 BioRePeel $525 for a package of 3

BioRePeel is a family of “no peel” chemical peels that have been clinically tested and proven to decrease and/or eliminate damage from UV rays, pigmentation, acne, and acne scarring. BioRePeel dissolves bonds between the cells and carefully removes the outermost layer of skin, turning over the cells and revealing the glowing, smooth new layer of skin underneath. How can this be accomplished without skin visibly peeling from the face? By combining TCA with hydrogen peroxide and kojic acid, you will receive the powerful benefits of a high-strength TCA peel without the risks of side effects and peeling. While TCA deeply penetrates the skin, the addition of hydrogen peroxide and kojic acid leaves the upper layers of the skin intact!

Also available as an Advanced Add-On to any facial service for $150.

The Perfect Derma Peel  – $300

This service includes a complimentary dermaplane two weeks after the peel. The Perfect Derma Peel combines powerful ingredients with effective acids to deliver outstanding results after one treatment. This unique formula allows for an increase in the lifting of fine lines and wrinkles as well as reducing hyperpigmentation, including melasma. The Perfect Derma Peel is a non-invasive, virtually painless treatment with only 2-4 days of peeling.

Also available as an Advanced Add-on to any facial service.



Skin Classic for Skin Irregularities

Skin Classic

The Skin Classic device safely treats minor skin irregularities, typically in just one treatment! There is minimal discomfort and downtime. Treat skin tags, milia, sebaceous hyperplasia, flat hyperpigmentation, cherry angiomas, clogged pores, and broken capillaries permanently! Topical numbing cream will be applied for your comfort.

  • Spot Treatment: $30 per imperfection
  • Larger areas: $100-$300 per area


SkinPen Microneedling


The SkinPen is a microneedling device with fine needles that create controlled micro-injuries in the skin. This stimulates the body’s natural collagen production, leading to improved skin texture and reduced signs of aging. The procedure is known for its effectiveness in addressing fine lines, wrinkles, and scars. Results are noticeable after a few sessions, and the downtime is minimal. This service covers the full face and neck. Numbing cream will be applied 30 minutes prior to maximize your comfort.

  • Single Treatment: $350
