Dry Skin Professional Treatments

When we are experiencing dry flaky skin, our first thought is to typically scrub it off.  The concept of that is right, but the way it’s done and the frequency can play a role into how the skin reacts.  We have several options of professional treatments to remove the dead skin cells which in return allows for better product penetration and absorption.

Diamond Glow. This 3×1 clinical treatment exfoliates, infuses and hydrates. Our estheticians will choose the best option for your skin out of 6 diamond cut tips.  These tips remove dead surface cells and prep the skin for the infusion and extraction process.  There are 5 infusion serums that can be customized specifically for your skin, including an Ultra Hydrating serum that your skin will LOVE.  To target dry flaky skin, you can’t go wrong with a Diamond Glow

Dermaplaning. Adding a dermaplane to any other professional treatment or on its own will make your skin feel soft and accept the products you use even better.  Using a surgical blade, your esthetician will lightly scrape the surface of your face, removing all dead skin cells and vellus hair.  By creating a fresh canvas, your skin will feel soft, smooth and hydrated for weeks. Try adding this to your facial or diamond glow for even better results.

Facial.  Facials can be completely customized for your skin.  Using all professional grade products, your esthetician will deeply clean, exfoliate and hydrate your skin.  Add a little facial massage and a quiet room with light music, you can have a nice relaxing spa like treatment with major benefit.
