Microneedling/Dermapen: We use the world’s most advanced and safest micro needling device– Dermapen III. The Dermapen III is a medical precision tool that utilizes surgical grade micro needles to perforate the skin in a perfect motion to activate the body’s repairing mechanism. Micro injuries created by the Dermapen triggers skin cells to intensify the release of its own collagen and elastin to erase years from the skin and allows for deeper penetration of treatment solutions for optimal benefits, treating your skin from inside out. The Dermapen III can be used to treat fine lines and wrinkle, sagging skin, sun damaged skin, discoloration, enlarged pores, stretch marks, scars (surgical, acne, etc.) active ingredient penetration, skin rejuvenation and improvement of skin tone and texture.4-6 treatments are recommended and treatments are performed 4-6 weeks apart. The patient will be red for about 3-5 days, no makeup can be worn for 24 hours, sweating is not recommended for 24 hours as well. Numbing is required. The difference between microneedling and the laser skin resurfacing is that lasers create thermal change in the skin which creates collagen faster. Microneedling is best for infusing activated products.
Facials: Signature facials combine the best in luxurious, relaxing, clinical, and result-oriented skin treatments. Using medical grade products, our facials are customized for the patient’s skin type and will address the skin’s specific needs and conditions. During the facial, the skin is cleansed, exfoliated, replenished and nourished. We also offer clarifying acne facials to reduce blemishes and soothe inflammation. Whether the goal is corrective, preventative, or healthy skin maintenance, our facials will place them on the path to years of healthy, beautiful skin. Facials also include a facial massage which stimulates blood flow and lymph circulation, activates sluggish skin, softens sebum to help with impurities, helps increase product absorption, and reduces puffiness and sinus congestion. Facials are great to get on a regular basis of every 4-6 weeks and take 45 minutes to an hour.
Microdermabrasion: Microdermabrasion is a quick, non-invasive procedure used to resurface the skin. This procedure gently removes only the very top layers of damaged skin by “sand blasting” them with tiny crystals. This technique exfoliates and gently resurfaces the skin—promoting the formation of new smoother, clearer skin. Microdermabrasion also helps clean out clogged pores and is great for acne, texture issues and increased product absorption. Microderms can be done every 4-6 weeks for optimal results.
Dermaplaning: Dermaplaning is a manual exfoliation technique that removes surface debris for the outermost layer of the skin with a custom blade. This procedure is quick, safe, and popular to rid the skin of fine vellus hair (peach fuzz) and dead skin with no downtime. Dermaplaning has gained popularity among cosmetic medical providers across the country because it is a great exfoliation technique, without the chemicals that are in peels. Dermaplaning can be done as often as every two weeks, although it is usually done when vellus hair starts to grow back, which is generally in one month’s time. Dermaplaning increases absorption of products, can improve fine lines and wrinkles, primes skin for chemical peels and gives a healthier more radiant appearance.
Chemical peels: VI Peel –
Wallis Dermatology Associates is able to offer a variety of peels to fit every type of skin. The aging process can cause skin to become lax, pigmented and rough. Sun exposure and environmental assault just adds to the problem. Aging is inevitable but the VI Peel can make a difference in as little as 7 days. The VI Peel is formulated to rejuvenate aging skin and help prevent future damage. It also helps soften fine lines and wrinkles, restores an even skin tone and smooths away rough skin texture. The Precision peel is a booster added to the VI Peel to form a higher concentration peel. It is specifically formulated to rejuvenate harder to treat skin and helps get rid of pigment. VI Peel Precision Plus is formulated specifically for hyperpigmentation. Precision Plus brightens and evens skin discoloration, reduces the appearance of age spots and smooths away rough skin texture. VI Peel Purify is specifically formulated for acne prone skin. It clears out dead cells to open up pores, kills p.acnes bacteria and sooths inflammation and redness. Patients can expect to peel on day 3 after getting the peel and peeling can last anywhere from 2-7 days. Patients should avoid extensive sun exposure up to 2 weeks after a peel.
ZO Stimulator Peel- Wallis Dermatology Associates also offer a chemical exfoliation without the actual peeling process. The treatment can be done in less than 20 minutes or can be added to a facial. The Stimulator peel helps smooth rough texture; helps treat acne and uneven pigmentation. It is designed to exfoliate the skin by stimulating cellular turnover to improve sin tone, texture and clarity with no downtime, peeling or redness. It is gentle on the skin but strong enough to make a visible different, brightening and refreshing the face for a youthful, dewy look. The peel contains 3 different acids to exfoliate the skin and promote cell turnover. 10% Salicylic acid, 10% Lactic acid and 10% Citric Acid. These are AHA or Alpha Hydroxy acids that dissolve dead skin cells and gives a great exfoliation to the upper layers of the skin. One peel will give the patient results but maximum benefits can be achieved with a series of three to four peels in two week intervals.
Hydra Skin Refiner: The Hydra Skin Refiner utilizes water pressure to unclog pores and remove debris impurities generated by dermabrasion. Abrasive Aqua tips exfoliate with the power of water and extracts impurities at the same time, dead cells are vacuumed away. This dramatically improves the skin by providing deep cleaning, exfoliating, hydrating, oxygenation and micro-circulation.

Back Facials- Back Facials are a skin treatment that is great for any patient, including teens, men and women. The techniques used in a back facial are very similar to those applied in a regular facial treatment. The only difference is that skin products used in a back facial are formulated specifically for the skin on your back, which is much tougher than the delicate skin on your face. Back facials are great for treating the hard to reach areas of your back. Many of us will experience clogged pores and a break out on our backs. A back facial will help to cleanse and exfoliate the skin, while treating congestion and reveal a brighter and smoother skin.
