Genius Radio Frequency Microneedling

GENIUS RADIO FREQUENCY MICRONEEDLING is a procedure for skin tightening and texture improvement. It is a minimally invasive treatment that reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, scarring, and skin laxity. Genius is a device that sends radio frequency energy to multiple layers of the skin to stimulate the body’s natural collagen and healing processes. The treatment takes approximately 45 minutes and makeup can be worn the next day to cover any redness. This unique, state-of-the-art system continually monitors the quality of the skin during the treatment, allowing Adina to accurately customize each treatment, providing the perfect balance of comfort and outcome. A series of 3 treatments is recommended for best results.

  • Offering Full Face, Neck, and Chest treatments
  • Offering treatment to the abdomen, arms, legs, and knees.

SculpSure Body Contouring

SculpSure is an advanced body contouring treatment using light based lasers to disrupt fat cells in areas of the body, such as the abdomen and hips, where fat is hard to reduce. The result is a firmer, flatter abdomen and flanks. SculpSure is a means of non-surgical fat reduction.

miraDry

miraDry is a non-invasive treatment FDA approved to reduce odor and sweat glands in the underarm area. The treatment also makes it possible to no longer need deodorants and antiperspirants, which may contain lead and other toxic chemicals.

Dermaplane

Gentle expoliation to remove vellus hair and the uppermost layer of skin.

Chemical Peels

A chemical peel, also known as chemexfoliation or dermapeeling, is used to improve the appearance of the skin. In this treatment, a chemical solution is applied to the skin, which causes it to “blister” and eventually peel off. The new, regenerated skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin. The new skin is also temporarily more sensitive to the sun.

Treatments offered:

  • SkinMedica® Illuminize Peel
  • SkinMedica® Vitalize Peel
  • SkinMedica® Rejuvinize Peel
  • ZO® Stimulator Peel

Plasma Pen

The Plasma Pen, also known as Plasma Skin Tightening or Fibroblast Therapy, is an FDA cleared non-surgical device and technique that is used to tighten and smooth skin naturally. … This device is used to perform Fibroblast Therapy, which is a technique used to stimulate the production of collagen in the skin. All areas of the face, including the eyelids can be treated.
