About Facial Aging
When we’re younger, our skin has an abundant supply of collagen and elastin fibers that keep our skin moisturized and wrinkle-free. These fibers create a rope-like structure that withstands gravity, UV rays, free radicals, and pollution. When they are healthy, collagen and elastin fibers promote firm, youthful skin. These fibers are readily replenished by fibroblast cells that generate fresh collagen and elastin molecules to repair and replace existing fibers. However, like with all of our other body systems, fibroblast cells gradually slow down with age. Over time, our existing collagen and elastin fibers become depleted and disorganized. Wrinkles start to form, fine lines begin to appear, and our appearance ages. By the time we are 60, we have lost around 40% of our collagen supply.
Exposure to sunlight often results in blotchy areas of hyperpigmentation. Also known as sunspots, these brown patches are the result of overly pigmented skin cells in our complexion. When skin cells absorb UV rays, melanocytes go into overdrive, producing excess melanin and causing affected cells to darken permanently. UV-induced hyperpigmentation is thought to play a protective role by preventing DNA damage in the dermis and epidermis. However, the effect can add years to out appearance. Patients with sunspots often see them around their face, neck, hands, chest, arms, shoulders, and back.
Chemical Peels/Skin Treatments
Our professional facial treatments and pharmaceutical-grade chemical peels provide remarkable results with the latest world-class technology. Chemical peels are safely designed to treat patients of all skin types and those with different cosmetic conditions. From acne scars to sun damage, age spots, wrinkles, and fine lines, there are a wide variety of chemical peels that are expertly formulated to treat your unique skin concerns. Our expert aesthetician will determine which one is best for your skin and will achieve your desired results.
The Perfect Derma Peel $225, ½ Hour
The Perfect Derma Peel is a deeper peel for all skin types with moderate downtime. This peel is ideal for patients who struggle with:
- Acne outbreaks
- Acne scars
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Enlarged pores
The Perfect Derma Peel is the only peel that contains glutathione, a powerful antioxidant that eliminates oxidative stress in skin cells.
The Vitalize Peel $140, ½ Hour
A Vitalize Peel is a gentle blend of skin-safe ingredients to smooth surface texture and brighten the appearance of your complexion, all while reducing hyperpigmentation, breakouts, and oily skin. This light to moderate peel cleanses the skin’s surface without diving too deep. This gentle peel features little downtime.
The Illuminize Peel $125, ½ Hour
For those interested in an introductory peel, the Illuminize Peel is a wonderfully simple choice. This peel uses carefully formulated acids to leave the skin rejuvenated, refreshed, and recharged. It addresses superficial concerns like texture, tone, and overall appearance. Because it involves little to no downtime, many patients choose this peel as their lead-in to the world of chemical peels.
Alpharet Peel $125, ½ Hour
Utilizing the latest technology, the Alpharet Peel is a three-step peel system that improves tone, texture, mild photodamage, and early signs of aging. Lactic, Glycolic, and Salicyclic Acid work in harmony to exfoliate, brighten, and fortify your skin’s appearance. The Alpharet Peel is ideal for those interested in minimal to no downtime.
Signature Peel $120, 45 Minutes
The Signature Peel tightens, lightens, and hydrates your skin at the cellular level, giving your appearance a total rejuvenation. After just one treatment, patients see a more youthful glow as the peel draws out their inner beauty. This light peel addresses superficial blemishes and requires no downtime.
DermaPlane Facial $125, 45 Minutes
DermaPlane is a skin rejuvenation procedure that removes facial hair, dead skin, and extraneous debris from your skin. This procedure leaves skin feeling smooth and exfoliated. Based on the patient’s needs, we follow a DermaPlane session with a topical light acid to enhance results.
DermaPlane may be added to any of the above chemical peels for $50, however, it is not recommended in conjunction with the Perfect Derma Peel.
Camouflage Makeup $150
We all have blemishes or things on our skin that we would like to conceal. Whether it be birthmarks, a regretted tattoo, rosacea, acne scars, burns, vitiligo, melasma, or sunspots, these cosmetic concerns can impact our complexion and our confidence. Camouflage makeup helps patients conceal uneven pigmentation and texture. At your one-on-one appointment with our expert aestheticians, we will help you learn how best to use these products on your own. We often recommend Camouflage Makeup to cover post-op redness and bruising. During your one-on-one session, we will give you your own makeup kit and a lesson on how to use it best.

Countdown To Your Wedding Day!
Many brides-to-be seek out our services to make sure they are wedding-ready and look their absolute best on their big day. Since many of these treatments require different durations of downtime, and may require multiple sessions, we have a go-to calendar. But first, schedule a personal consultation at our Cleveland offices. This will help us develop a personalized plan that fits your unique concerns and schedule.
6 Months Out
Now is the time to undergo a cosmetic surgery or enhancement procedure. This gives you enough time to focus on rest and recovery, waiting for any residual swelling and bruising to subside. Patients interested in zapping away unwanted hair begin treatments around this time too. Sessions are scheduled in 6-week intervals with the last appointment being 2-weeks before the wedding.
4 Months Out
Interested in longer lashes and eyes that steal the show? Begin using LATISSE on your lash lines. This far out allows for the active ingredients to grow longer, healthier lashes for a captivating look.
3 Months Out
At this time, we will introduce your skin to total rejuvenation. We will recommend different skincare products, anti-aging facials, and chemical peels to wash away blemishes and revive your natural beauty. These treatments improve the appearance of sun-damaged skin, acne, and signs of aging.
2 Months Out
Don’t let wrinkles distract you from the big day! For a naturally youthful look, we use BOTOX® Cosmetic or JUVÉDERM® to smooth away wrinkles and fine lines from your forehead, around the eyes, and encompassing the mouth. We can also add volume to lips, cheeks, and other areas of the face.
1 Month-1 Week
For the wedding-ready look, we recommend DermaPlane or Signature facial. We may also utilize brow styling or lash services to achieve that polished, glowing look for your big day.
