Skin Rejuvenation & Spa Procedures

As time passes, genetics and environmental factors have a negative effect upon the health and beauty of the skin. Collagen fibers disorganize, elastin breaks down, muscle tone lessens, facial fat and bone thins. These changes alter the individual’s appearance on both microscopic and macroscopic levels. Sunken cheeks, sagging skin, deep facial lines of expression, wrinkles, dyschromias (brown spots, age spots, keratosis, broken capillaries) and a dull complexion become obvious. The bloom of youth; a clear, unblemished complexion gradually lessens. The well-defined contours of the face blurs and it grows increasingly tired and aged.

Dr. Moynahan’s Ultimate Signature Facial

Your introduction to futuristic improvement in the appearance of your skin begins with a consultation. We obtain your skin history, medical and lifestyle information, and perform a skin analysis under magnification. Your skin’s unique needs are noted and a customized plan to improve and enhance the quality, health and appearance of your facial skin is created, and discussed with you. All your questions will be answered. We will be available throughout to address any concerns and make changes where needed as we work with you on this journey to the most beautiful you.

Dr. Moynahan’s Intense Lightening and Brightening Facial

When your face makes you look older than you are, this may be due to color changes. Different things cause uneven and diffuse deposits of melanin, the element which colors the skin. Sun exposure, hormonal influences like birth control pills, pregnancy, menopause, and genetics contribute to dyschromias (uneven coloring.) Brown spots and tan patches reflect a dull and aged complexion. We perform intense therapy with arbutin which reduces the discoloration while Vitamin C, an antioxidant promotes cell renewal and contributes to skin brightening. A fresh, clear and brighter complexion is the result we work towards.

Dr. Moynahan’s Wave of Moisture Facial

A parched, flaky and itchy face means thirsty skin. Poor nutrition, environmental exposure; too much sun, wind, dry or cold temperatures leaves skin significantly dehydrated. A lack of moisture also highlights lines and wrinkles. This problem can be reversed with our intense clinical moisturization. We channel rich hydration deep within the skin, using healing ingredients which calm irritation, plump thirsty cells and minimize fine lines and wrinkles. Your skin blooms under liquid replenishment which helps healing and return of firmness and glow.

Rosacea and Sensitive Skin Facial

Because of stress, hormonal imbalances, diet, the environment or a late night out, we’ve all experienced some skin sensitivity or reddened areas at some point. Some people deal with sensitive skin and rosacea every day. Skin flare-ups are another challenge, like embarrassing red areas, difficult to hide under makeup, and drawing curious stares. We offer a calming facial, specifically designed to treat sensitive skin. It soothes irritation and inflammation. Redness subsides and the skin is restored to a clear and healthier complexion.

Dr. Moynahan’s Anti-Acne Facial

Acne is one of the most challenging conditions adults have to handle, as it creates self-consciousness and can take away our confidence. Science offers us many advances to deal with your particular case which include medication and skin care. Based on intensive medical research and taking into account your personal medical and skin history our acne facial gently opens pores and remove impacted oil and bacteria. Blackheads and whiteheads along with surface debris are eliminated. The purifying process re-texturizes the surface of the skin. Dullness disappears, and transforms into a clear, radiant complexion with a healthy glow.

Dr. Moynahan’s Texture Enhancing Facial

Dry, parched skin with flaky patches requires intense hydration. Hyaluronic acid, a key ingredient of this therapy, carries one thousand times its weight of precious fluid to where your skin needs it most. Intense hydration plumps the skin. A warm glow signifies a youthful and healthy complexion.

Dr. Moynahan’s Chemical Peels

Genetics, aging and lifestyle contribute to the appearance of aging skin. Pollutants are significant causes of premature aging of the face. Sun exposure, smog, wind, cold weather, overly hot showers, cigarette smoking, alcohol consumption, recreational drugs and stress accelerate the development of lines, wrinkles and sagging. Elasticity and collagen are diminished, color changes occur such as age spots, freckles, mask of pregnancy and broken capillaries. Chemical peels serve as a remedy to improve these imperfections by healing the environmental wounding of the skin.

Dr. Moynahan’s Refining Chemical Peel

This peel is designed to reduce the appearance of enlarged pores by removing impacted oil, black heads and white heads, fade brown spots and control acne breakouts. Texture and tone are improved and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles are diminished. Our 70% medical grade buffered alpha-hydroxy peel contributes to exfoliation and provides barrier protection. It helps skin to become smooth and brightened.

Dr. Moynahan’s Remedy Peel for Oily Skin

Did you know that oily skin actually has benefits? It resists sun damage, and provides Vitamin E, which is an anti-oxidant, an effective anti-aging element. When it is excessive, however, it leads to clogged and enlarged pores and promotes the development of pustules and pimples. A dull and unhealthy shine results. We use beta hydroxy peels to control oiliness, evacuate comedones (whiteheads and blackheads) and shrink pores. Oily skin is resolved, acneic breakouts, a roughened surface and discoloration are decreased. Shine is minimized and a clear, smooth complexion emerges.

Dr. Moynahan’s Problem Skin Solver Peel

A Jessner Peel is utilized to remove the superficial layers of skin, evacuate blackheads, lighten hyperpigmentation and minimize fine lines and superficial scars. Skin becomes clearer, brighter and smoother.

Dr. Moynahan’s Booster Peel

This is a combination therapy utilizing a Jessner Peel which primes the facial skin for combination with the Refining Chemical Peel to penetrate deeply into the skin where damage is most significant. Performance is enhanced and results improved. This advanced treatment effects significant exfoliation, reduces hyperpigmentation, reverses sun damage, boosts tone, refines texture and minimizes mild scarring


Microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive procedure designed to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, smooth scars and improve texture and tone. There is no down-time and it is often scheduled as a “Lunch Hour” enhancement. Microcrystals are gently applied over the face providing a mild abrasion that loosens dead skin, frees surface pollutants, and unblocks clogged pores. Debris is carefully vacuumed away. Skin is cleansed, refreshed, and softened. A delicate glow results. We advise a series of four to six treatments to achieve the most improvement.


Masks are used between peels and other treatments to maintain the positive results. Several benefits can be enjoyed by different types of masks. These include:

· Lightening and Brightening

· Firming

· Replenishing Mask – Infusion of Moisturize

· Oil Control (anti-acneic)

· Retexurizing – smoother, more even skin, diminishes the appearance of pores.
