Skin Care

Gail Burgess, our licensed aesthetician, has extensive experience and expertise in skin care treatments and product recommendations. She performs a variety of treatments from gentle facials for dry or sensitive skin to more aggressive exfoliation for acne-prone, sun-damaged and hyperpigmented skin. Call us to schedule a consultation with Gail. She will make product and in-clinic treatment recommendations based on your skin condition.

Glycolic Peels

Still the gold standard for treating prematurely aged, sun-damaged and acne-prone skin.  The glycolic peel is available in five strengths to allow customization for all kin types.  Skin CareNormally, there is virtually no visible flaking with low strengths.  Results are cumulative, and best results are obtained with an initial series of four to six treatments plus consistent use of recommended home products.

Dermafile™

We are the first in Nashville to offer this new type of gentle exfoliation!  A skin file is used to achieve polished smoothness without chemicals, crystals, machines or blades.  The treatment is painless and may be customized for all skin types, especially dry, sun-damaged and prematurely aged.  Results are cumulative, and best results are obtained with an initial series of four to six treatments plus consistent use of recommended home products.  A glycolic peel may be combined with the Dermafile™ treatment for ultimate exfoliation. 

Skin Care Lines
