Extractions are performed on comedones and other types of acne. Comedone pimples are more commonly known as blackheads or whiteheads. They most often appear on the forehead, chin and nose.
Tracie performs extractions using a special metal instrument that presses down firmly on the targeted area of the skin to gently unclog the plug and remove any oil, bacteria or debris from the lesion. Extractions are performed with steaming techniques, which help to open the pores of the skin and help to achieve the most aesthetically-pleasing results possible.
Classic European Facials
As we age the rate at which our skin sheds and replenishes itself slows down. This leaves a layer of dead cells on the surface of the skin, contributing to an aged appearance. Facials help exfoliate the damaged layer to reveal the younger, healthier skin beneath. Facials reduce the signs of aging and can also improve skin conditions such as acne, dry or oily skin, and uneven texture or pigmentation. Rose customizes each facial to fit the individual patient’s needs.
Microdermabrasion with DermaSweep MD
DermaSweep™ MD is an advanced microdermabrasion procedure that gently removes the topmost layer of the skin. The system then vacuums away the dead skin in a controlled and precise manner. The skin is left smoother as the vacuum action of the wand stimulates blood flow, cleans the pores and moves skin debris to a HEPA filter. The increased blood flow to the skin’s surface encourages collagen formation thus firming and toning the epidermis as well.
Conditions that can be treated with the DermaSweep MD:
- Early Aging Lines
- Uneven Skin Texture
- Photo Damage
- Surgical Scars
DermaSweep MD also offers Epi-Infusions, which are a combination of a microdermabrasion and a chemical peel. Derma Sweep Epi-Infusion treatments combine exfoliation with delivery of skin specific topical solutions, leaving patients with fresher felling and better looking skin. The DermaSweep’s topical solutions are formulated to treat specific dermatologic conditions.
Conditions that can be treated with the Epi-Infusions:
- Acne – uses an infusion of Salicylic Acid to help reduce acne and clogged pores
- Dehydration – uses an infusion of hyaluronic acid, aloe vera, and chamomile to help restore skins natural moisture and radiance
- Hyperpigmentation – uses a skin brightening solution with hydroquinone, azelaic acid, and kojic acid to help lighten pigmentation problems
- Fine Lines & Wrinkles – uses either a TCA or Jessner chemical peel infusion to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
Chemical peels remove damaged outer layers of skin on the face, hands, neck and chest to smooth texture, reduce scarring and remove blemishes and pre-cancerous growths to produce healthy, glowing skin. Chemical peels by Rose range from mild and moderate, and she tailors each peel to every individual patient’s needs.
Waxing is a convenient and effective way to remove unwanted facial or body hair. Tracie offers waxing for all parts of your body, from eyebrows & upper lip, to legs and Brazilian bikini, and anywhere else in between that you might have undesired hair. Waxing removes hair at its roots, so the hair normally does not grow back for several weeks.
