Facials Offered 

  • Diamond Glow Facial:

    The Diamond Glow Facial is a non-invasive, multi-step treatment that simultaneously exfoliates, extracts, and infuses the skin with custom serums to improve skin texture, tone, and hydration. Using diamond-tipped wand technology, this facial gently removes dead skin cells, unclogs pores, and delivers nourishing serums deep into the skin, leaving it radiant, rejuvenated, and glowing.

  • Dermaplane Facial:

    The Dermaplane Facial is a gentle exfoliation treatment that removes dead skin cells and vellus hair (peach fuzz) from the surface of the skin, revealing smoother, brighter skin underneath. This non-invasive procedure also enhances the effectiveness of skincare products and makeup application, resulting in a smoother complexion and improved skin texture. *Can be added to any service.

  • Microneedling (Micropen) Facial:

    Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a minimally invasive procedure that stimulates the skin's natural healing process by creating tiny micro-injuries using a specialized micropen device. This promotes collagen and elastin production, leading to firmer, smoother, and more youthful-looking skin. Microneedling can also improve the appearance of acne scars, fine lines, and wrinkles.

  • HydraFacial:

    The HydraFacial is a multi-step facial treatment that cleanses, exfoliates, extracts, and hydrates the skin using patented Vortex-Fusion technology. This non-invasive procedure targets various skin concerns, including congestion, uneven texture, fine lines, and dullness, by delivering nourishing serums and antioxidants deep into the skin. The HydraFacial results in clearer, more radiant skin with no downtime.

  • Chemical Peel Facial:

    Chemical peels are customized treatments that use exfoliating solutions to remove dead skin cells and promote cell turnover, revealing smoother, more radiant skin. Our dermatologists offer a variety of chemical peels, ranging from superficial to deep peels, to address specific skin concerns such as acne, hyperpigmentation, sun damage, and signs of aging. Each peel is tailored to the individual's skin type and goals to achieve optimal results.

    The Skintrinsiq device uses pneumatic technology that provides negative and positive pressure at varying levels for different benefits throughout the treatment. Optional simultaneous LED light helps DAO patients reach their skincare goals and address problem areas without adding treatment time.

  • Oxygen Facial:

    The Oxygen Facial is a rejuvenating treatment that delivers a pressurized stream of oxygen infused with vitamins, antioxidants, and hyaluronic acid to the skin.

The Oxygen Facial is ideal for all skin types and provides instant radiance and hydration.

Patient Testimonials

Katie T.

I definitely recommend Dermatology Associates! There was no long wait like at most places. The waiting room and exam room were clean and comfortable, and the staff was super nice. I had to call multiple times after having trouble with the patient portal, and each time I called, they were nice and helpful. Katie made me feel so comfortable. She didn’t try to rush through my appointment to get to the next patient like in some places. She answered all my questions and made me feel so at ease, even with my terrible anxiety. Seriously can’t say enough good things about this place!

For most clients, receiving a facial every 4-6 weeks is recommended to maintain skin health and address ongoing concerns. However, our estheticians can provide personalized recommendations based on your skin type and condition.

Yes, many facial treatments are safe during pregnancy, but it's essential to inform your esthetician if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Certain ingredients and techniques may need to be adjusted to ensure the safety of both you and your baby. Our estheticians are trained to provide pregnancy-safe facials tailored to your specific needs.

Certain facial treatments, such as microneedling and chemical peels, can help improve the appearance of acne scars by stimulating collagen production and promoting skin renewal. However, the effectiveness of treatment depends on the type and severity of the scars. Our estheticians can assess your skin and recommend the most appropriate treatment options for acne scar reduction.

Our estheticians provide post-treatment care instructions to ensure optimal healing and results.

Yes, facials can help reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation by exfoliating dead skin cells, promoting cell turnover, and delivering brightening ingredients to the skin. Chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and LED light therapy are effective treatments for addressing hyperpigmentation and achieving a more even skin tone. Our estheticians can recommend the most suitable treatment options based on your skin concerns.

The duration of facial results varies depending on individual skin type, concerns, and lifestyle factors. While facials provide immediate improvements in skin texture, tone, and hydration, regular maintenance treatments are recommended to sustain long-term benefits.
