Facials are used to cleanse and nourish the skin for a healthier, glowing complexion. This non-invasive skin care treatment is a popular way to give the skin a boost, helping remove dull skin cells and hydrate the skin for a younger-looking facial appearance. At the Dermlounge, we offer facials for every skin type to address a variety of skin concerns, such as treating acne and diminishing signs of aging. Our aesthetician will perform an in-depth skin analysis followed by an evaluation of your current skin care routine and products. Based on this information, a treatment plan will be tailored to your unique goals and desires, helping you revitalize your skin for a more refreshed complexion.
Micropeels at the Dermlounge are considered safe and gentle for all skin types. They are designed to improve a variety of skin concerns, including rough or dull skin texture, sun damage, acne, and fine lines and wrinkles. Performed by our experienced aesthetician, micropeels result in little to no downtime, allowing patients to resume their daily activities with minimal interruption. Only mild peeling and redness typically occur after treatment. To provide more extensive exfoliation, you can opt to add the dermaplaning treatment to any of our micropeels.
Chemical peels are a safe and effective treatment used to improve skin tone, texture, and irregular pigmentation. Chemical peels also will cause deep exfoliation, oil control, improve acne, sun damage, environmental damage, and signs of aging. Some peels may result in little to no skin peel, while others result in mild to moderate peeling. To achieve optimal results, a series of peels are recommended. With meticulous attention, our aesthetician will evaluate, educate and guide you to the right treatment for healthy, vibrant skin.

LATISSE is a prescription solution that is applied to the upper lash line to stimulate the growth of longer, thicker eyelashes. This FDA-approved treatment is believed to work by increasing the number of hairs in the active growth phase, creating thicker eyelashes. With nightly application for several weeks, patients can begin to see the fuller, darker eyelashes they desire.
