Skin Is In
Allow me to introduce you to the awesome skin treatments we have at The Pin Up Girl. Whether you’re getting ready for a big event, working on clearing acne and scarring, or concerned about aging, we have the perfect solution for you. I've used my training as a medical esthetician and holistic skin expert to design a menu of services that deliver results with little downtime and no scary procedures required. Read about the different treatments and modalities we offer and rest assured that we will customize your entire treatment specifically for your needs and concerns. All facial services include cleansing, toning, and moisturizers and treatment products as we see fit.
Enzyme Bath - Papaya and pineapple enzymes chomp away at dead skin cells and debris leaving your skin super clean for any treatments that may follow. This frothy concoction is spread onto the skin and brushed all around with a fluffy brush offering an oh so relaxing cleansing and lightly exfoliating experience that is appropriate for all skin types.
Nano-Infusion - A gentle, non invasive transdermal delivery system designed to penetrate treatments into the epidermis of the skin. We pair this with an ampoule chosen specifically for your skin concerns. An ampoule is a small, sealed glass vial containing concentrated serums and boosters for the skin. More powerful than a serum alone, each ampoule is opened fresh before your treatment so you can be sure you will receive the most potent formulation that has been protected from moisture and contaminants.
Micro-channelling - An evolved, less scary version of microneedling that concentrates on stimulation rather than inflammation of the skin. Tiny needles (less than .5mm long) create microchannels in the skin allowing for product absorption to the dermal/epidermal layer of the skin and stimulating premium collagen production from your own body. Paired with a treatment serum containing cytokines, growth factors and loads of hyaluronic acid - this is the treatment for you if you are concerned about scarring, anti aging and overall skin health. Visit the Micro-channelling blog post to learn more about how we help your own body heal and beautify itself from the inside with our star treatment.
Gua Sha - An ancient Chinese healing technique used to increase circulation, lift and tone facial muscles and encourage lymphatic drainage. It relieves muscle tension and reduces swelling. It not only feels great but it has been known to decrease headaches, jaw and sinus pain and pressure.
HydroJelly Mask - A popular Korean beauty trend, these masks are formulated to treat different skin concerns but all of them feel cooling, calming and are healing and super hydrating to the skin. Plus, they turn into a cool rubbery consistency that gets removed in one swipe.
Dermaplaning - Using a medical grade scalpel, the skin is scraped free of dead skin cells, dirt, debris, product buildup and vellus hairs. While it does remove the peach fuzz on the face, it will not change the histology of the hair, therefore, it will not grow back any different than it was in the first place. This treatment leaves your skin fresh and glowing. It is also a great treatment to pair with others to allow for maximum penetration of products.
MicroDermabrasion - An exfoliation treatment designed to clear the top layers of the skin of dead cells. A diamond tip scrapes the cells clear and they are vacuumed away using light suction.
HydroFacial - This treatment is all the rage and has been called the red carpet facial for the plump and glow it imparts to the skin. Skin is suctioned clean while being infused with highly concentrated serums. A safe exfoliation treatment for even sensitive skin types. There's a solution for everyone here. Afterwards, you can see the dirt, skin cells, debris and gunk removed from your skin right in the waste jar!
Radio Frequency - A low level of radiation is used to heat the lower layers of the skin in the dermis. This stimulates collagen at a deep level helping to create collagen and reduce signs of aging and sagging skin from the inside.
MicroCurrent - A low level electrical current delivered through a metal handpiece mimics the currents of the body that increase circulation to the area and lift and tighten muscle tissue. It helps penetrate products into the skin and enhances skin overall.
High Frequency - Using electrical currents delivered through a glass electrode, it stimulates circulation, warms the skin and converts oxygen from the air into ozone. The ozone is pushed into the skin by the electrical current, killing off the bacteria that can cause acne. It can also treat enlarged pores, fine lines and wrinkles, and puffiness around the eyes. It’s an overall skin enhancer.
LED Light Therapy - Exposing the skin to different colors of LED light can work wonders on the skin. The light penetrates deep into the skin to cause positive changes. These are light emitting diodes, so there are no UV rays to be concerned about and you won’t get a tan. Just pure healing from the inside out. Red light therapy induces collagen production and is anti-aging and healing. Blue light kills acne causing bacteria below the skin’ surface. It’s the perfect addition to any treatment.
