Wrinkle Relaxers

(AKA neuromodulators, botulinum toxin type A, neurotoxins, “tox”)

While Botox Cosmetic is the most well known name in the field of players, there are several great choices of agents!  But, much like Kleenex, “Botox” is often used generically in describing any neuromodulator used to relax wrinkles.  Whatever you want to call it, this category of drugs is amazing and has become super popular for a reason! Areas that we treat include the following:

  • Glabellar complex (between your eyebrows, often called “the 11s”)

  • Forehead

  • Crow’s feet

  • Bunny lines

  • Marionette lines

  • Eyebrow lift

  • Lip flip

  • Chin


(with Hyaluronic Acid)

Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, stimulates the skin to produce collagen and healing factors through a series of micro injuries. It can help to tighten the skin, fight acne, diminish wrinkles stretch marks, reduce scarring (yes, including acne scars!) and stretch marks, and decrease unwanted pigmentation.  Your skin will begin glowing within a few days, and full benefits of collagen induction are seen around three months. This treatment can be personalized based on your skin’s needs, and is best when done in a series of at least three. 

Microneedling is a very versatile treatment and can be used on many parts of the body (if you have questions, please use the “Book Now” button to book a virtual consultation). Some areas and concerns that respond well to microneedling include the décolleté, stretch marks, scars, and hair loss (see below for more on this!).

Pro Chemical Peel

This is another peel by the makers of the Perfect Derma Peel that is a little less intense. It is great for anyone who is looking for more routine maintenance or prevention. It also provides a good option for those who are very interested in the results of peels, but don’t yet feel ready to jump into a medium depth peel.


*Other peel options are available and can be discussed via a consultation or at the time or your service.

The Perfect Derma Peel

This is a medical grade, medium depth chemical peel that is great for so many skin concerns. It is also the only medical grade peel that features glutathione (AKA the master antioxidant), which has amazing anti-aging properties! This is a great option for anyone hoping to

  • Control acne

  • Reduce or eliminate hyperpigmentation, melisma, and sun damage

  • Improve the texture, tone, and clarity of their skin

  • Decrease fine lines and wrinkles

  • Minimize the appearance of pores

Peels aren’t limited to the face, either! They can be performed on the décolleté (great for sun damage), shoulders, back, even hands. Feel free to ask about any areas of concern you may have.  This peel can also be customized to your exact concerns. A take home aftercare kit enhances results and is included.

Hair Restoratioon

n this treatment a specially developed serum (the most scientifically advanced product of its type) is used in conjunction with microneedling to stimulate dormant hair follicles to regrow hair.  The serum uses a conditioned media that targets the hair growth pathway and twelve bio-identical growth factors and cytokines, each of which has been proven to effectively stimulate hair follicles.  This is a great hormone free option to treat hair thinning and loss in both males and females. An optional take home kit boosts results, as does an available shampoo. This service is only offered as a series, as it needs to be done repeated.

Growth Factor Facial

(Microneedling with Growth Factors)

You may have heard of microneedling with PRP, or platelet rich plasma. In this treatment your own blood is separated and the part with cytokines and growth factors is used as a mask in conjunction with microneedling, allowing all the goodies to get inside your skin. But that’s not how we prefer to do it.  Instead, we offer microneedling with medical grade growth factors. Instead of using your own blood, we use laboratory grown growth factors. Why? For several reasons. The concentration of growth factors and cytokines is more consistent and much higher than in PRP and the combination actually has anti-inflammatory properties, whereas PRP has pro-inflammatory properties. In other words, you get more of the good and less of the bad. Additionally, the serum we use is derived from the exact cells that have been shown to direct natural skin repair within the body, and has research to back it up! So leave the vampires alone, because this is absolutely the most effective way to do microneedling!

Our services (with the exception of fillers) are also offered concierge style, so we bring the good stuff to you. But why stop there? Invite some friends over and have a soiree! You’ve likely heard of the concept of a “Botox Party,” but we have evolved this concept with expanded offerings, allowing a more sophisticated approach to anti-ageing outside the walls of the office.  You provide the friends and location; Illuminate Aesthetics provides the med spa services. Hosts/hostesses receive great incentives, everyone has fun, and many clients love the “excuse” to have a gathering every few months.
