Description of Spa Services

Facial Cleansing Treatments

Clinical Deep Cleansing Facial:

This classic yet relaxing facial is customized for each individual’s skin type& condition. After an initial skin evaluation, the skin is cleansed, exfoliated, & blemishes/impurities are extracted. We include a massage of the face, neck & shoulders. We conclude with a balancing masque treatment, serum, moisturizer & a PH balanced sunscreen.


Dermaplaning is performed by safely and gently using a sterile surgical blade and lightly scraping off dead skin cells from the surface of the face. This helps to minimize uneven skin tone, dry/rough patches, large pores and unwanted facial hair. This process also promotes a higher rate of skin cell turnover for more radiant, youthful looking skin. We conclude with our hydrating moisturizer to repair dry or oily skin types and a PH balanced sunscreen. There is no down time.

Microcurrent Technology

Known as Pilates for the face, this treatment will give you the extra boost you need and is Pain Free!
A perfect solution for the person concerned about the aging appearance of their face. Microcurrent achieves a healthier, younger, toned and refreshed appearance by stimulating more than 30 muscles of the face in just one treatment. The result is visible firming and smoothing of the skin. This treatment can be combined with other cosmetic procedures to enhance their results. To maintain this youthful appearance, and continue collagen stimulation, a series of 12 sessions is recommended.

High frequency

High frequency therapy is a safe and gentle rejuvenating treatment that has been shown to enhance blood circulation, increase collagen and elastin production, eliminate toxins and blemish causing bacteria. It also encourages lymphatic drainage; exfoliation of dead skin cells and improves skin care product absorption. By helping to treat and prevent stubborn acne, shrink enlarged pores, and oxygenate the skin this timeless procedure is a perfect add on to any facial treatment, leaving your skin firmer, smoother and refreshed in only 20 minutes.


Reflexology has been a popular form of improving blood flow, relieving stress and aiding in the healing process for hundreds of years. We are able to include massage of the neck, shoulders, arms and hands to address stiff and sore muscles while enhancing your individual spa experience. We also include the option of massage to the feet and lower legs allowing you to relax in style and comfort. These luxurious add on specials are not only proven to increase longevity but also to improve organ health and overall body wellness!


This pain free, skin firming treatment stimulates existing collagen skin cells deep within the dermis in order to promote new collagen growth to areas suffering from laxity and loss of volume. Thermage uses radiofrequency technology to safely heat these deeper layers of dermis thereby restoring aging, wrinkled and sagging skin to a much more youthful appearance.

Fillers fill. Sounds simple, doesn’t it? But not everyone with a paintbrush in his or her hands is an artist. With 30 years in the plastic surgery field, Rob Lucas, Physician Assistant is an “injection artist”.

Rob has legions of long-time, loyal patients, some of whom have been seeing him since the 1980’s. Times have changed and he has always been in the forefront. He has served our patients on both coasts, even on television. He has conducted seminars on injection technique and both doctors and the companies who manufacture these products seek his opinion out. His forte is righting injection “wrongs” that we inherit from other practices.

What products does he use? Fillers and neruotoxins like Botox.

Botox: The neurotoxin with the largest name recognition and largest market share. Why? Because it’s excellent. It seems like new uses and applications for this drug emerge daily. It’s safe, predictable and relatively easy to use.

Dysport: Very similar to Botox. Some people prefer Dysport, especially if they apparently develop resistance to Botox. We often prefer it on men.

Xeomen: The newest neurotoxin. Some patients prefer the slightly more subtle result.

Restylane: The Hyaluronic Acid (H.A.) filler that has been approved in the U.S. the longest. It’s a very good, all around, intra-dermal filler. Intra-dermal means that it goes within the layers of skin, to “poof out” medium lines and minor folds.

Perlane: Restylane’s big brother. Slightly thicker and very good for creating structure on thin lips.

Juvederm Ultra XC and Ultra Plus XC have subtle differences to Restylane and Perlane, and are preferred by some patients. Often when using these products along with Botox, since Allergan manufactures both, there are incentive programs that make Juvederm preferable.

Juvederm Voluma: A huge advance. Finally a H.A. filler that can be used deep, below the skin, to create volume and contour to lift the face. One of the biggest advantages of H.A. fillers is that they can be reversed with a simple injection another medication. There are no chances of lumps or thickening from granulomas that plague the non-H.A. fillers.

Radiesse: A calcium based filler in a gel base. It goes deep, like Voluma and is particularly useful for correcting defects after surgery, like on noses.

Sculptra: A L-Polylactic Acid collagen stimulator that stimulates your own collagen (by injection) to fill out hollow areas.
