A touch of french vanilla oil will enhance the joyfulness of this orange delight. If you still haven’t had enough of the blissfully fruity scent, our Creamsicle moisturizing cream will hydrate you and let the amazing aroma of that wonderful childhood treat linger on your tingly, new skin.

If your skin is sun damaged or mature a different high frequency setting will be used. A skin specific mask will help draw impurities or tone and rejuvenate your delicate skin. A specialty serum picked especially for you will be applied after your last toning session. At last, moisturizing will hydrate and nourish your newly revitalized skin.

High Frequency Cellulite treatment

Reduce the dimpled, cottage cheesy look on your thighs, belly, even your arms without any exercise or discomfort with our non-invasive cellulite treatment. This exciting treatment begins with 15 minutes on the Chi Machine to improve your body’s circulation and oxygenate your blood. Dry brushing your target area to cause an increase in topical circulation is the next step in this slimming process. Now, a seaweed gel that is rich in Klamath blue green algae, which helps hydrate and detoxify your targeted areas is applied. Our technician will then use a glass electrode filled with argon gas to “zap” lumpy skin and heat the fatty layers under it. This mild heating causes tightening and increased blood circulation and the fatty deposits are drained through the lymphatic system, reducing the appearance of cellulite. Once the area has been treated with the high frequency machine, we will then remove the seaweed gel and apply a cellulite oil. The treatment will allow the oil to penetrate deeper than if used alone.

This treatment is recommended to be used in a series for optimum results. Package prices are available.

Anti-aging Micro-current Skin Lifting Experience

Advances in technology have actually made it possible to see instant results in the lifting and tightening of your skin without surgery or down time! Although we recommend a series of these treatments, micro-current enables you to achieve more taut, youthful looking skin in just one session.

Micro-current is a specific amount of electricity that mirrors the body’s own natural current and works in harmony with the body’s electrical system. Micro-current impulses trigger a chemical reaction at a cellular level and help stimulate tendons, which then aid in strengthening the muscles, therefore bringing more definition to the face and body or wherever you are applying the current.

Micro-current technology is the only aesthetic treatment available that can physically firm and tone the skin through muscle re-education. Our treatment starts with dry brushing your target area. After we’ve exfoliated and brought surface circulation to a peak, we will apply a cell regenerating gel to your target area and begin your electrotherapy session. After completion, we will apply a luxurious, anti-aging cream to moisturize your newly firmed skin.
