Our Relaxing New Gua Sha Facial
Pronounced “gwa shuh,” this delicate new facial has been called the “Botox of the East.” It’s based on an ancient Chinese ritual and uses a stone tool to work with the muscle fascia and lymphatic system to encourage circulation and detoxification. The Gua Sha facial is considered the ultimate in relaxation, resulting in healthier and more radiant skin.
Skin-Pen II Microneedling
This procedure stimulates your skin’s natural ability to produce new collagen and elastin for healthier, younger-looking skin. Skin-Pen II accelerates this repair process by creating microscopic channels, which also allow products to penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin. New collagen and elastic production can reverse years of sun damage, improve acne scars and enhance the overall appearance of aging skin.
Bellus Medical – the manufacturer of SkinPen® — recently announced that they have been granted clearance by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for this medical grade microneedling device, to be used exclusively by trained healthcare professionals. This is the first and only microneedling device in the industry to receive this important designation from the FDA and sets a new standard as the only recognized Class II microneedling device for aesthetic use.
This light cosmetic procedure refreshes the look of the skin utilizing mechanical exfoliation of the outer layers of the skin. This technique involves exposing the skin to crystals or diamond flakes, which are then suctioned off of the surface. Much like brushing one’s teeth, microdermabrasion gently removes dead, dull-appearing skin cells. Following microdermabrasion, the Ultrasonic DermaPhoresis technique is used to deliver a unique, vitamin-enriched mask through ultrasound massage. A series of treatments reduces the appearance of fine lines, sun-damaged skin, and age spots and improves uneven skin tone.
Chemical peels are topical treatments that use various types of chemicals to “peel” away damaged layers of skin. All types of light-to-medium chemical peels are available at Brinton Lake Dermatology. Depending on the type of peel used, results vary from a simple refreshing of the skin with the lighter peels to increased collagen production, improved skin texturing, corrected pigment problems and reduced sun damage with the more aggressive medium-depth peels.
Facials/Deep pore cleansing
A facial removes impurities of the skin such as whiteheads, blackheads, milial cysts and pimples, as well as embedded dirt and oils under the skin. Utilizing deep cleansing, extraction and exfoliation, facials can resurface textural irregularities, rehydrate dry skin or counteract effects of sun damage by infusing your skin with antioxidants. Oily, acne-prone skin can also benefit by eliminating blackheads and whiteheads, by reducing the congestion caused by dirt and oils, and by reducing pigmentary problems left behind by acne breakouts.
This procedure utilizes a special surgical blade called the “Epi-Blade” to carefully remove the uppermost layers of the skin, resulting in a rejuvenated appearance. In this process, not only is the top layer of damaged skin removed but also the very fine vellus hair (peach fuzz) that can trap excess dirt and oil leaving the complexion looking dull. The end result of a series of treatments is skin that looks smoother and more refined.
Laser Hair Reduction
Brinton Lake Dermatology uses a diode hair reduction/removal system that is the first technology to use combined energies to effectively and gently remove hair of many colors and types from all skin tones. A combination of bipolar radiofrequency and diode laser energies target dense, concentrated pigment in the hair follicle where selective destruction of the hair follicle results in decreased hair growth. This virtually painless, no downtime procedure is safe and effective on a variety of skin types and most darker hair colors.

Using a botanical and anti-microbial wax that makes the wax removal less irritating to the skin, we offer facial waxing services for the brows, lip, cheeks, chin or sideburns.
