Types of Facial Treatments
Deep Cleansing Facial
During a deep cleansing facial, our aestheticians will cleanse, exfoliate, steam, mask, moisturize, and massage your face and neck to rejuvenate the skin. Based on your complexion and skin goals, your provider will select appropriate topical solutions. You will leave your appointment at Plastic Surgeons of Northern Arizona feeling relaxed and refreshed with glowing skin.
HydraFacial’s unique vortex technology helps to remove impurities, dirt, and dead skin cells from deep within the pores, leaving the skin feeling fresh and rejuvenated. The treatment uses a gentle acid peel to exfoliate the skin without causing any irritation, which helps to brighten the complexion and even out skin tone. The treatment can also help reduce hyperpigmentation, including age spots, sun damage, and discoloration. Patients with acne or oily skin may also benefit from HydraFacial treatments, which remove excess oil and can unclog pores.
IPL, or intense pulsed light technology, is a gentle way to reduce the appearance of redness, rosacea, sun damage, enlarged pores, and hyperpigmentation in the skin. During the treatment, your aesthetician delivers precise amounts of pulsed light energy to the skin, which stimulates collagen production. As new collagen forms in the skin, it softens the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and discoloration.
Chemical peels can help to rejuvenate the skin, leaving it looking brighter, healthier, and more youthful. The procedure involves the application of a chemical solution that removes the top layer of damaged skin cells. This promotes the growth of new, healthy skin cells and can improve the appearance of a variety of skin concerns, including fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and acne.
Dermaplaning – also known as a scalpel facial procedure – removes the top layer of dead skin cells, revealing smoother, softer skin underneath. The treatment also stimulates collagen production, which helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on the face.
As we age, our skin naturally loses collagen and elastin fibers – but microneedling can invigorate healthy skin protein production and restore your skin’s youthful glow. Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a very popular, non-surgical aesthetic procedure that helps firm and tone the skin. During your microneedling procedure, our aestheticians use a sterile micro-exfoliating pen to promote cellular turnover and skin protein production through thousands of microscopic, superficial channels, giving the skin a firmer, more youthful, and even texture.
Laser skin resurfacing is a premier cosmetic procedure that uses a laser to remove or diminish the appearance of wrinkles, scars, moles, freckles, discoloration, warts, skin cancer, veins, stretch marks, blemishes, and other skin imperfections. During the procedure, a high-energy laser beam is used to safely vaporize the epidermis, the outermost layer of skin. This stimulates the growth of new, healthy skin cells and promotes collagen production. By stimulating new skin growth, laser skin resurfacing can help improve the elasticity and firmness of your skin over time.
