Working with clinical, medical-grade ingredients can provide deep and effective results. All skin treatments begin with consultation to analyze your skin type and condition. Because I understand skin and the treatment products I work with, let me determine the best facial option for you. Just think of me as your personal skin care consultant!
Rejuvenating chemical peel
With immediate impact, this lighter peel approach provides multi-layered custom exfoliation and hydration leaving the skin glowing and rejuvenated. Using peel ingredients that do not result in flaking or peeling it is a great ‘anytime’ option for healthy beautiful skin.
A corrective chemical peel goes deeper to treat and resolve skin issues especially concerning texture, acne and pigmentation, and is very effective for age-management of the skin. Peeling will occur a few days after, but greater result comes with it. For true corrective impact a minimum of 3 treatment series is recommended.
Acne does not have to be a permanent condition and can be prevented. Whether mild congestion and clogged pores or deeper inflammatory concerns, medical grade ingredients can break the cycle of acne and blemish-prone skin and prevent future breakouts. All treatments are tailored to specific acne concerns.

Effective for aging symptoms targeting fine lines, wrinkles, loss of volume, and treating acne scarring.

Common Questions and Honest Answers
Don’t even worry about it, that is my job! The first step of a facial is to assess your skin, then select the right approach and ingredients. Just know that your facial will always be custom tailored to your skin for best results.
The common thinking is with change of season, but there really are no rules. If you are having issues with your skin – breakouts or buildup on the surface, then a facial is a great way of cleaning up and re-generating the skin. After a facial the skin functions better and products are more effectively absorbed and therefore work better.
One facial will do good work, but when it comes to fixing deeper problems, it requires a series of treatments (3 is the typical base) to make more profound changes in the skin.
ALWAYS start with home care. Daily routine is the best thing you can do for you skin. Invest your facial money in your daily routine first. Effective medical grade home care by AlumierMD will often resolve the skin issues you are experiencing.
Very simply – the depth at which the peel works and some peeling!
A rejuvenating peel does great work to refresh and revive your skin and there is no post treatment peeling affect. There are no changes to your routine, and you continue with your regular home care after. Ideal for that extra glow for any special upcoming events.
The Glow Peel or corrective peel treats the skin at a deeper level and peeling will occur as a result. Many think that peeling will happen immediately – not true. In fact, once this peel is completed you look fresh and dewy. A home care kit comes with this treatment and is used for about one week. Peeling (the question that everyone has) starts somewhere between 2-3 days after the peel. This is why I recommend Tuesdays for peel – so you can go through bulk of peeling on the weekend! P.S. It’s worth every flake of skin.
Micro-needling is a corrective treatment, not to be thought of as a facial alternative. Going deeper, but not too invasively, it is an excellent choice for acne scarring and a key strategy tool in age-management of the skin (fine lines, wrinkles and collagen stimulation).
Greater result requires greater commitment in time, and budget. A minimum of 3 is the starting point in a series to achieve results.
Honest truth: it is not worth investing in micro-needling unless without a good home care program in place. Home care is key to supporting treatment and for a continued result.
