RF Microneedling produces dramatic improvements in skin laxity, scarring and hyperpigmentation with little to no downtime.

Just how does RF Microneedling work, and is it the right treatment for you? Let's take a closer look.

You may already be familiar with the benefits of   Microneedling alone. Microneedling can show significant improvements in fine lines and scarring. However, in this procedure, Radio Frequency (RF) is the real superstar.

Radio Frequency is a powerful form of energy that produces heat. This procedure uses microneedles to deliver RF energy deep into the dermal layer of skin precisely where it is most effective. In the dermal layer, Radio Frequency energy heats and contracts existing collagen fibers. RF effectiv...

Originally researched and developed by NASA, low-level light therapy is the application of light energy to the body to obtain therapeutic benefits. It produces a natural photobiochemical reaction similar to the process of plant photosynthesis. 

Low level light therapy, also known as photobiomodulation or biophotonics has a wide range of applications including the treatment of aging skin, acne, muscle and joint pain.

How exactly does light therapy ease pain and improve aging skin?

Certain wavelengths of light energy deeply penetrate into the dermal and subcutaneous layers of skin. In these deep layers, light energy works by activating color sensitive chemicals within cells.

The mitochondria provides all the energy needed for cells...

Would you love to have a smoother, tighter neck and more contoured jawline? Would you love to see fewer fine lines, improve laxity and skin tone? Would you love to have a little less volume under the chin?  Would you love to achieve all of this without pain, surgery, or downtime?

It's getting hot in here...

RF Contouring, or Radiofrequency is a form of energy that produces heat. When we precisely heat the dermal layer of skin and the layer of subcutaneous fat below, beautiful things begin to happen. The heat destroys fat cells, improving the appearance of cellulite and redu...

Are you looking for a powerful and proven treatment to dramatically renew your skin? Do you want to diminish age spots, melasma, wrinkles and fine lines? Do you want to refine pores, improve laxity and boost collagen production? If so, Laser Resurfacing may be perfect for you. 

How does it work? Resurfacing Rx is a very precise and controlled ablative procedure. We use an

Erbium Laser to remove the outer layers of dead skin. The outermost and most damaged skin layers are removed to reveal fresh new skin cells and to speed the rate of cellular turnover. This results in the fading of hyperpigmentation and melasma. Scars are diminished and the overall skin tone and texture are greatly improved. Laser energy also stimulates the produ...

What is Microcurrent and why is it an all time favorite at SkinRx? Let's take a closer look.

To really rejuvenate skin we need to address what lies beneath. Microcurrent specifically targets and treats the musculature of the face and neck. Using both manual manipulation and bio-stimulation, Microcurrent achieves beautiful, dramatic and immediate results.  

Facial Muscles

We all know that our facial muscles allow us to make a vast array of expressions. You may even have Botox or other neurotoxin injections regularly to soften lines and wrinkles etched into skin by some common facial expressions. In addition to making expressions, healthy facial muscles provide lift, tone and contour to the face and neck. Our 43 different...

Why is Microdermabrasion so effective in restoring a youthful glow? How does Microdermabasion leave skin smoother, clearer and pores more refined? And just what does it have to do with diamonds? Let's take a closer look.

Microdermabrasion provides excellent manual exfoliation to reveal fresh, healthy cells and speed cellular turnover.

What is Cellular Turnover?

The cells in our skin are designed to naturally and regularly renew.  

Dead skin cells are shed through a process commonly called cellular turnover or cellular renewal.

A new skin cell starts out in the the deepest layer of the epidermis. This cell travels up through the epidermis until it reaches the outermost layer of the skin. Once there, this cell has changed into...

Why is the Oxygen Infusion Facial preferred by so many A list celebrities to keep skin plump, firm and flawless? Let's take a closer look at the details.

Oxygen, as you may know, is essential for cellular function. You may not know that as we age our bodies become less efficient at delivering oxygen from our blood into the cells of the skin. Pollution, toxins and other factors can further deplete our skin cells of the oxygen it needs. Skin cells starved of essential oxygen cannot repair and regenerate as they are intended. This results in dry, dull looking skin and accelerated signs of aging.

An Oxygen Infusion Facial applies a continuous stream of pressurized pure oxygen to the skin. This leaves skin immediately calmer, brighter...

Microneedling erases fine lines, improves overall tone and can dramatically fade scars. Microneedling is also know as Collagen Induction Therapy because it is so effective at boosting collagen synthesis. How can thousands of tiny pin pricks actually improve skin? Let's take a look at the science and details.

It all starts with your body's own healing response.

During a Microneedling treatment, surgical grade needles are used to create thousands of tiny controlled micro injuries. These injuries serve two purposes:

1. They create channels that deliver potent skincare ingredients into the dermal-epidermal layer of skin where they are most effective. 

2. The tiny injuries reach into the dermal-epidermal layer of skin where they trigge...

What is IPL and what makes it such a great option for so many different skin concerns? Let’s take a closer look.

IPL. The power of light.

IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light. Also commonly refereed to as the photofacial or photorejuvenation, IPL uses light to effectively rejuvenate the skin. 

You may be surprised to learn that IPL is not technically a laser. Lasers use one continuous wavelength of light. IPL is different because it uses multiple wavelengths of light.

Focusing select wavelengths of therapeutic light into the dermal layer of the skin, IPL targets many imperfections

while boosting collagen synthesis by an impressive 20% or more!

Using different filters of light, we are able to target and treat a wide range of ind...
