Areas of Expertise
Rachael is our resident HydraFacial expert and uses this 3-step 30-minute light but powerful facial to calm, smooth and refine, restore and firm up, hydrate and brighten your complexion. HydraFacial makes for the perfect facial for skin laxity and sagging, wrinkles and sagging, clogged pores and a lackluster look—and Rachael is the perfect person to provide it.
Chemical peels are part art and part science. Ranging in intensity from light to deep, chemical peels are well suited to fair-skinned and light-haired patients looking for a respite from fine facial lines and wrinkles, scarring and age spots. Peels can be done not only the face, but the hands, neck and decolletage as well, and they work by exfoliating the topmost layer of skin to reveal the more youthful and vibrant layer beneath it.
Dermaplaning is a method of manual exfoliation that is done with a special surgical-grade blade held at an angle to the face and carefully moved across it in order to remove surface debris and vellus hair, and exfoliate dead skin cells. Rachael’s keen eye, steady hand, and extensive experience make this calming and comfortable. It immediately makes fine lines and wrinkles appear less obvious, increases the absorption rate of topically applied serums and lotions, and produces a healthier and more radiation complexion with an even sheen.
PRP treatments use the platelet rich plasma drawn from your own blood, making them fully biocompatible. These powerful platelets are put into the skin via microneedling on the face in order to treat a hollow or gaunt appearance, banding, wrinkles and lines and other common cosmetic concerns. Depending on the size and scope of your areas of concern, Racheal will draw a vial of blood, run it through a centrifuge to isolate the PRP, and then place it where it will do the most good.
If the sound of repetitive needle pokes to the skin doesn’t sound all too appealing, that’s understandable. But two things that makes Microneedling a popular go-to for our patients in need of some skin revitalization: One is the topical numbing cream applied so experience no pain but all the pleasure of having a glowing face clear of most textural problems, sun damage and stretch marks. The second is Rachael’s calm demeanor and careful work that leaves patients feeling relaxed and reassured.
Unlike microneedling, Microdermabrasion doesn’t require anesthesia. Depending on your skin type and tone, and your current cosmetic concerns and goals, Rachael will help you with the perfect procedure for you. Whether it’s diamond-tipped, crystal, or hydradermabrasion, the procedure helps to reduce lines and wrinkles and restore dull or aged skin to a refreshed and more youthful state.
Of all the facial rejuvenation procedures we offer, AquaGold is one of the most exciting. Like other microneedling procedures, it does involve producing some controlled wounds in the epidermis to initiate the body’s natural process of healing. But unlike other procedures, this latest innovation combines the benefits of microneedling with the simultaneous delivery of various nutrients that are carefully curated for you. Whether for hydration or age-defying youthfulness, AquaGold has something for everyone.
As the name implies, our bespoke facials by Rachael are entirely customized to meet your needs. Each begins with a brief but thorough personal consultation to understand your skin type and current concerns After that, the sky’s the limit and anything is possible. Whether you opt for a hydrating facial, a skin brightening facial or an anti-aging facial, all are designed to meet your needs.
Our medical grade skincare products help extend your in-office results into your at-home makeup regimen. Whether your skin is dry, oily, or a combination of both, Rachael will help you choose and use the products most suitable for your skin tone and skin type. Our products are already paraben free and work well even for sensitive and combination skin types, but there’s a certain confidence that comes with having them hand picked for you by someone who has quite literally pored over your skin.
DiamondGlow™ is a trademarked cutting edge skin-resurfacing technique that is entirely noninvasive. A unique diamond-tipped device is used to exfoliate the topmost layer of skin to unveil a renewed appearance. Next the skin is deeply cleansed and dirt and debris are extracted from pores. Finally, your already-vibrant skin is then infused with nourishing SkinMedica serums.
Permanent MakeUp is typically applied not to the whole face, but to a portion of it, with the most popular areas being the eyebrows and eyelashes. In this time saving and beautifying treatment, Rachael applies organic pigmentation to the dermis to give the impression of actual makeup. It’s a careful process and is virtually painless thanks to topical numbing creams.
