A facial is beneficial for the overall health of your skin. We offer many types of therapeutic facials, including:
Our Signature Facial combines microdermabrasion with a customized facial to maximize the benefits of both.

Collagen Induction Therapy, sometimes called “microneedling,” is a treatment that improves the appearance of age-related fine lines and wrinkles as well as scars such as those resulting from acne. The procedure can be used on the face, except within the orbital rim, and elsewhere on the body.
As we age and battle skin conditions, the natural architecture of our skin deteriorates. Collagen Induction Therapy is a great way to address this at the cellular level. The treatment comfortably creates thousands of micro-injuries in the skin to trigger the body’s natural wound healing process. This results in skin remodeling, including the formation of collagen and elastin, the two proteins predominantly responsible for the structure of the skin. The outcome is beautiful, youthful looking skin.
Although this is a comparatively new procedure, it has already gained great popularity. South Shore Skin Center uses the only FDA-approved state-of-the-art device currently available called SkinPen® for this treatment which is minimally-invasive, and requires little downtime. We also feature and recommend the addition of Epidermal Growth Factor during the CIT treatments to further stimulate the production of collagen. When combined with microneedling, the results can be quite remarkable.
