Skin Resurfacing Treatments
Skin Pen is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation procedure that improves fine lines and acne scars by stimulating your skin’s natural ability to heal. The first microneedling device cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, SkinPen is clinically proven to safely and effectively treat facial acne scars for ages 22 and up.
With as few as three non-invasive and affordable treatments spaced 30 days apart, you can improve your appearance for six months after your last treatment and step out with confidence.
SkinPen causes controlled micro-injuries that stimulate your body’s natural wound-healing process while minimizing cellular damage. Watch the video below for a real Skin Retreat SkinPen procedure.
Microdermabrasion is a gentle, non-invasive treatment that helps to unlock vibrant and youthful skin on a patient’s face, neck, chest, elbows, hands, back, legs, and feet by thickening collagen.
By removing the surface layer of dead cells from an area of your body, microexfoliation increases collagen production for increased elasticity. Microdermabrasion will leave you with visibly renewed skin tone and texture.
Nanopeel and Micropeel
Laser skin resurfacing reduces facial wrinkles and other pigmentation irregularities with precision. By utilizing specialized laser energy rather than harsh abrasives or chemicals, the NanoLaser/MicroLaser Peel can lift away just enough of your epidermis’s layers as needed for desired results.
Benefits include increased collagen production, which leads to smoother healthier-looking skin, smaller pores, reduced appearance of sun damage or age spots, and improved texture overall due to its ability to selectively target damaged areas of the face.
What to Expect Before a Skin Resurfacing Treatment
Before a skin resurfacing treatment, you will meet with your practitioner to discuss your desired goals and medical history. It may include pre-treatment instructions such as using retinoid products or refraining from pre-treatment sun exposure.
