that want to lighten and brighten their skin and try to remove the signs of
aging. A microdermabrasion is a non-invasive, exfoliating procedure used to
remove the stratum corneum (dead outer-most surface of the skin). This
procedure can be performed individually or in a series, for revitalizing and
maintaining the skins appearance and smoothness. It can be used to
address problems on the face or body. The procedure is not very painful and
requires no anesthetic. One session generally takes 30 minutes or less. There
is no special preparation needed prior to the visit, nor any recuperation
after. Microdermabrasions, chemical peels, facials and the proper skin care

have several men who buy packages and are seen over 6-8 months for removal of
hair from back. This should be done before summer or they need to stay out of
the sun during treatments.
A very important item for men is skin care. We have the Colorescience Powder
Sunscreen which is very popular gift for birthdays, Fathers Day, or
holidays. It is a brush-on mineral skincare sunscreen that is completely free
of the dyes, talcs, fillers, mineral oil, perfumes and other ingredients found
in traditional lines. Fisherman and golfers love to just put this in their
pockets and go. Its a phenomenal sun screen that provides instant
protection when applied and is completely sweat resistant.
Esthetic Skin Institute has a great men's skin care line which includes
Men's Defense Face Wash, Men's Defense Toner, Men's Defense Micro buff

Face Armor SPF 30 (sunscreen). These products can be purchased bundled into a
kit or can be bought separately.

sun spots on the skin- men have their pride too! To get rid of sun spots and
help with rosacea we have the XPL laser photofacial, which often proves very
effective. These treatments can be done every two weeks or when the skin just
needs a lift!
