Exfoliate Your Skin!

Exfoliation is the step most people skip in their weekly skincare routine, but it is one of the most important. Such a simple thing, but it can immediately start to reveal younger, healthier looking skin! There are several ways to exfoliate your skin. The main ones are microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and retinoids.

Microdermabrasion works by removing the dead skin cells on the surface. These dead cells tend to dull our complexion. By exfoliating your skin once a week, your skin will be much healthier and look more radiant. In addition to the professional quality treaments that we offer, you can also find basic kits at select beauty product stores.

Chemical peels are great ways to quickly make your skin look younger. Treaments tend to take less than an hour and can reveal skin that looks smoother and healthier.

Retinoids (such as Retin-A) also focus on removing the the dead cells on the top layer of your skin. They also focus on regenerating collagen in the skin, which helps provide support and structure.

For more information on these treatments and others, our resources at are very helpful, and our skin care staff can also answer your questions!
