Microdermabrasion is a quick and painless treatment that accelerates the rate at which dead skin is exfoliated, and jump-starts the proliferation of new skin cells. Microdermabrasion can be coupled with just about any other type of skin treatment and is usually recommended to be done every few weeks to every two or three months. “Exfoliation has many benefits. The most obvious is the elimination of the dead skin, which allows treatment products to better penetrate the skin. By removing this layer, called the stratum corneum, irregular pigment can be tackled, too. You'll also see improvement in the skin's overall appearance and texture. Microdermabrasion goes deeper than other modes of exfoliation to help the skin replenish itself by stimulating cell regrowth.
Suitable for all but the most sensitive skins, microdermabrasion combines vacuum suction with tiny abrasive crystals to polish away the uppermost layer of skin, eliminating roughness as well as fine lines and wrinkles. It is a quick and virtually pain-free procedure that uses tiny, rough aluminum crystals to vigorously exfoliate the top layer of the skin, removing dead skin cells.
LED Light Therapy is an advanced technology that offers a vast quantity of benefits for the skin. There are a number of different colored wavelengths that help the skin in positive yet different ways. The layers of the skin are comprised of a high content of blood and water which allows them to easily and readily absorb and accept light. Once absorbed into the skin the different colors work hard offering their own unique benefits. Laboratory studies have shown that skin cells grow 150-200 percent faster when exposed to certain LED light wavelengths.
Oxygen facials and Add-ons are said to combat visible signs of aging linked to poor conveyance of oxygen from subcutaneous capillaries to the surface of the skin. They address this deficiency by delivering highly concentrated oxygen molecules directly to the epidermis. A stream of high-pressurized oxygen infused with botanical, vitamin, mineral, and nutrient extracts is applied to the face and neck. The oxygen absorbs the moisturizing agents into the skin for a smoother, plumper look, providing a healthy glow.
Oxygen facials are becoming more en vogue in the spa industry, cropping up on many spa menus. These types of facials particularly began to gain momentum when celebrities such as Madonna touted the skincare service for its ability to create a plumper and smoother surface, hiding imperfections and resulting in a more youthful appearance. The oxygen facial is a popular treatment to indulge in prior to a big event or soirée, and it can be performed on all skin types.
Many spas also are offering add-on oxygen “infusions” following most traditional facial treatments. These add-on treatments are designed to nourish the skin and stimulate new collagen growth. Oxygen infusions can include antibacterial, brightening, green tea, Vitamin C, and collagen.
Why get an oxygen facial?
The benefits of oxygen facials are said to range from thorough pore cleansing to lightened hyperpigmentation.
Oxygen is suggested to strengthen skin’s elasticity and help eliminate acne-causing bacteria, as well as reduce fine lines and wrinkles, even out skin tone, and diminish pores.
Many people who experience the non-surgical oxygen facial treatment see an immediate change in their appearance. Effects of oxygen facials are said to last about two days; for best results, many spas will recommend a series of six treatments along a six-week timeframe, followed by monthly touch-up visits.
Good to know
Many experts suggest that environment, smoking, and excessive amount of makeup lead to lack of oxygen to the skin.

LHE is a safe, quick and effective. MicroPhototherapy treatments gently reinvigorate your skin, giving it a younger, healthier appearance.
Treat yourself to a complete MicroPhototherapy treatment. In 8 sessions you can enliven your skin with a gentle lifting effect, as it helps to even out skin tone by diminishing sunspots, acne, freckles and molten skin.
MicroPhototherapy uses LHE (Light and Heat Energy). LHE is dermatologists recommended technology, that works deep under the skin to recapture an even, clear and firm skin tone. Like laser, LHE treats the skin with therapeutic light energy. Unlike laser, gentle waves of heat work together with the light removing acne, age spots and uneven skin tome with no down time and virtually no discomfort.
LHE treatment stimulates collagen to firm and tighten the skin, decreases pore size, evens out skin tone, and delivers glowing results. It leaves the skin feeling and looking younger with no recovery or downtime.
For optimal results, we recommend a series of 8 treatments within 4 weeks.
Skin Rejuvenation & Collagen Renewal
Skin rejuvenation can be divided into several categories; the removal of pigmented lesions, the removal of vascular lesions, the improvement of skin texture and tone, and the smoothing of lines and wrinkles. A comprehensive skin rejuvenation treatment may simultaneously include several of these goals. Although LHE employs a singular treatment type for all skin rejuvenation elements, the underlying processes that bring about the results are different.
Pigmented & Vascular Lesions
LHE is particularly suited for effective and lasting treatment of pigmented lesions.
Skin Tightening & Wrinkle Reduction
Periorbital wrinkles and skin laxity are the first, most noticeable signs of facial aging. LHE Skin Tightening is pain-free and clinically proven to improve these effects. Skin appears firmer, smoother and younger as it loses its laxity and wrinkles fade, creating a natural lifting effect. Infrared light penetrates deep into the lower dermal levels and sets off a mild dermal trauma to initiate a wound/heal response. The collagen found in these levels responds with new growth, returning firmness and elasticity to the skin. Results are often visible as early as the 5th week and continue to improve with time.Acne Clearance
Get clear skin… Fast with LHE. Micro-Photo Therapy delivers fast, safe and sure acne treatments. As a localized treatment modality, LHE clears mild to moderate acne without harsh systemic antibiotic treatments. In clinical studies, subjects noted significant improvement in their acne within the first 2 weeks- lesions cleared faster and outbreaks were milder.
