A PRP (platelet-rich plasma) facial involves drawing blood from your arm, isolating the plasma, and then using something called a derma pen to make tiny holes in your skin. PRP is applied and allowed to “soak” for 3-5 hours, and the end result? Reduced wrinkles and sun damage, reduced dark circles and a glowing, vibrant complexion. PRP treatments are also effective in reducing scar tissue.
We know it sounds a little bizarre, but this procedure has been used by doctors for years to heal sports injuries. It works because plasma is high in growth hormone, which encourages healing and cellular turnover. Risk of side effects is minimal, simply because your body naturally accepts its own tissue.
For best results, we recommend a series of facials (generally one a month for at least three months). Many clients are so pleased with the treatment, they compare it to a facelift, but without the downtime. And the best part is that the effects of a PRP facial gets better as time passes. Because the plasma stimulates collagen production and new cell growth, the full effects aren’t seen for a few months, and they can last up to two years.

Not all facials are created equal. And they shouldn’t be, because not all faces are the same! At Elizabeth Adams MD, our medical esthetician will customize a facial and add-on just for you. You’ll receive a unique treatment plan, designed for your skin, your stage in life and you’re aesthetic goals.
Want instant moisture and revitalization? Then let your skin breathe! Our Oxygen Blast Treatment infuses your pores with 87 different vitamins and minerals, in addition to pure oxygen.
We use Microdermabrasion to buff away scars and discoloration, and Chemical Peels to encourage the damaged top layers of skin to peel off, revealing the smooth, soft skin beneath.
Dermaplaning is another highly effective exfoliating process, where we gently scrape away dead cells to unclog pores, clear acne and freshen dull skin.
If your skin needs a (literal!) boost, we mix firming, mineral-rich, seaweed with clarifying orange and the brightening properties of 24-carat gold. Yes, we use real gold! It’s an amazing anti-inflammatory that evens skin tone.
Does your complexion appears “tired?” Enzyme Therapy is key. Perfectly calibrated live enzymes work with your body’s natural processes to fight free radicals and create a healthy environment where cells can thrive. Think of it as rebuilding your skin, cell by cell.
More of a generalist? Our HydraFacial Treatment is a non-invasive skin resurfacing process that cleanses, exfoliates and hydrates. It’s a smart choice for all skin types and helps regulate oil production, heal sun-damage and blend hyper-pigmentation.
A Microcurrent Face Lift is like CrossFit for your face! We use tiny electrical currents to stimulate, tone and tighten at the muscular level so that your face regains a more structured, youthful appearance. Often we pair this treatment with a nutrient infusion and a facial, so your skin still gets a hydrating dose of all that good stuff.
Radio Frequency Skin Tightening uses radio waves to transmit heat far beneath the surface of your skin, tightening the dermis and surrounding the growth of new collagen and elastin.
