Facials are definitely one of my favorite services to provide. I strive to custom tailor each service to your individual skins needs via assessment/observation and as well, by applying top notch CANADIAN products. I even have tips and tricks to help you save and make the best skin care purchases to give you the best bang for your buck! I have no gimmicks ( IE: A certain flavor mask for each season) as that, to me, is useless. We all crave excellent skin and I can help you get you on your way!
Micro-needling is a minimally invasive treatment with very small needles that mechanically perforate the outer layers of the skin. This creates a controlled injury underneath the skins surface, thereby inducing the body to respond by producing more collagen in the treated areas. The skin plumps and thickens in response to the stimulus. Micro-needling has been clinically proven to reduce the appearance of scars (burns, acneac, surgical etc), stretch marks, hyperpigmentation and fine lines/wrinkles. This treatment is particularly good at greatly reducing deep wrinkles above the lip!
Microneedling is minimally invasive, requiring no downtime.
It’s considered safe for most people who are in overall good health.
The procedure isn’t safe for people who use certain acne medications (Accutane) or for women who are pregnant.
You’ll experience minor redness and irritation for a few days after the procedure.
Unlike fractional laser therapy, Microneedling does not cause thermal (heat) damage to the skin. As a result, there is less redness, swelling, and downtime, and a minimal risk of side effects. This makes it a suitable treatment for all skin types and skin colors, and is an excellent choice for those patients who are seeking results without downtime.
The skin may be pink or red in appearance for 24-48 hours, much like a sunburn with some minor bleeding and very occasionally some mild bruising.
The skin may also feel warm, tight and itchy for a short while, I give you after care to help with this. Generally, the inflammatory reaction of the skin is overall usually short and fades significantly after a couple of days on average, depending on the skin color of the individual.
Patients with a more sensitive skin types or older patients may find it takes a little longer to recover fully.
A numbing local anesthetic will first be applied and left on for 20-30 minutes. The skin is then cleansed with a natural cleanser. Bioactive agents such as hyaluronic acid (what is used in Juvéderm/Restylane), vitamin C serum, lightening agents or anti acne serums are then applied and microneedling begins, the depth of the needle is dependent on your own unique skin type and your goal for your treatment. The microneedling pen helps create channels to deliver these infusions into the dermal layers below the skin surface. After Microneedling, a mask is applied to help soothe and hydrate (this may be LED mask, sheet mask or a gel mask dependent on the session. You may appear quite pink/red immediately after the procedure that may last 1-3 days depending on what depth of the needle was used. The progressive healing process begins immediately. It is very important to not wear makeup for the following 12 hours after treatment and to clean all makeup brushes, glasses and cel phone (anything that is going near or on your face) as you do not want any bacteria in your open skin. Patients may witness a noticeable glow to their skin. More visible changes to the skin will develop over the course of several days and weeks. Results will continue to improve for several weeks after the treatment as collagen production continues.
Some patients may only require a single treatment, once per year, to achieve optimal results. However, it is recommended for most patients to receive a series of 2-3 treatments spaced about 4-6 weeks apart. For patients with deep wrinkles, advanced hyperpigmentation, stretch marks or acne scars, it is recommended to receive 6-8 sessions at 4-6 week intervals.

Microdermabrasion treatments exfoliate the top layer of your skin, removing unwanted dead cells and debris. The best results come from using a powerful, specialized, medical office-strength microdermabrasion machine. The back and forth motion of the professional grade microdermabrasion tip removes dry, dead skin cells, lifting them off the stratum corneum. Clogged pore plugs are lifted from the pore openings as well. This dull and lusterless material is then vacuumed off of your skin, leaving you with a fresh, clean, bright and new complexion!
Medical grade microdermabrasion treatments also involve a powerful skin vacuuming and suctioning process which increases microcirculation in the skin. With regular treatments, the simultaneous motions of micro-abrasion and micro-circulatory stimulation can aid in rebuilding collagen in the skin.
Even therapeutic treatments should be enjoyable, so in my treatment room, I wrap your freshly treated skin in a soft warm aromatherapy towel, to sooth and hydrate your fresh, radiant, newly exposed skin layers. The result is skin that instantly feels and looks buffed to a bright and luminous glow. Your products and makeup go on smoothly and your skin looks great. Pretreating your skin with microdermabrasion allows me to more easily complete your extractions. The finishing facial and mask to calm and soothe the skin. You can’t help but leave feeling great with all the massage, pampering, and professional skincare products soaking into the deeper layers of your skin. You will also receive the most amazing neck, shoulder and hand massage (after all I am a massage therapist as well!)
This is a lovely facial to treat yourself with minimum every season change to help your skin adjust to the extreme changes Alberta, Canada has! (Not suitable for acneac skin)

BB Glow is one of the latest anti-aging beauty innovations! It's a semi-permanent foundation for your face. It uses scientifically proven nano-needling technology to infuse nutrient-rich tinted BB cream into the top layer of your skin. The effect is lighter than the standard foundation coverage but thicker than a tinted moisturizer. This treatment can assist in the reduction of the appearance of freckles, acne scarring, pigmentation and red/rudy complexions. The serum is available in different shades that we custom blend according to your skin tone, rejuvenating and repairing your skin from the inside out. Antioxidants in the serum also help protect skin against free radicals and pollution damage. The treatment is safe, and the BB serum is free of parabens, fragrances, alcohol, and allergens.
The most significant advantage of a BB glow treatment is how long it lasts - up to four months!
There’s no pain or downtime with the treatment, so you can resume your routine as soon as you finish. You’ll see results immediately, but the serum will also continue to work for two weeks after your treatment. Many clients repeat the treatment two or three times to maximize its effectiveness.
After you have had a micro-needling BB GLOW treatment go make-up free for the rest of the day and let your skin recover overnight. The next morning you can wear your make-up as normal. 75-90 Min

The HydraFacial is the only hydradermabrasion procedure that combines cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, hydration and antioxidant protection simultaneously, resulting in clearer, more beautiful skin with no discomfort or downtime. This is a revolutionary skin treatment that gently clears away imperfections and improves the look and feel of your skin. The H2O2 Facial targets fine lines and wrinkles, congested and enlarged pores, oily or acne-prone skin, hyperpigmentation, and brown spots (the system is a four-in-one treatment). Each serum targets specific skin issues including sun damage, blackheads and whiteheads, enlarged pores, acne, brown spots, uneven skin tone and early aging fine lines and wrinkles.
To start, after a gentle cleanse we add a deep steam and hot towels to really open up pores. Next is the exfoliation using our derma skin scrubber. After we use a gentler approach to vacuum out pores while simultaneously pushing in potent actives, which moisturize, brighten, plump, and protect followed by our O2 infusion. No down time, a beautiful & relaxing facial that does it all and best of all, this treatment is great for any skin type!

Using a sterilized scalpel and a delicate touch, the provider simply abrades the surface of the skin using light feathering strokes. This is a great treatment to offer to patients who are pregnant or nursing who want a deep exfoliation, but are not allowed to use peeling agents on their skin because of the risk that the chemicals will be absorbed into the blood stream, and may be transferred to the fetus/child. This is also a great choice for those with darker skin tones in which chemical peels is not a good choice for risk of hyperpigmentation. It is also a first choice for patients who have excess vellus hair on the skin (peach fuzz). This hair often causes a buildup of dirt and oils in the follicles, so removing the hair gives the patient healthier looking skin. Although merely an old wives’ tale, many patients are often concerned that the hair will grow back heavier and darker after dermaplaning. This is not the case. As long as the hair is superficial vellus hair, it will grow back at the same rate and texture as before the treatment.*This service is not recommended for those with course facial hair or those that have >40% areas of raised surface area (ie: many raised moles)
