We are recruiting new players
Medical Estheticians Kristy Harris and Stephanie Willis have added a high performance skin treatment to the playbook. Acne blemishes are a skin violation, that can leave even the hottest player on the sidelines and the “Player Facial” is the official clear skin treatment.
The Player Facial
We kick things off with Blue Light RF acne treatment. Intense Pulsed Blue Light teams up with RF energy to defeat acne causing bacteria and shrink oil glands. The next step is a deep pore cleansing treatment followed up with a treatment mask designed to battle acne breakouts. Then a microdermabrasion treatment will remove dead skin cells that threaten to block pores. In this skin treatment we will extract acne pimples and black heads, followed with a pass of high frequency to ensure quick skin healing. Finally, a Cryo-Slushy is made at the time of treatment and gently swiped over treated skin, to work against acne causing bacteria, tighten pores, reduce inflammation and enhance skin exfoliation.
90 minutes $225 * Gratuity not included.
Recommended For: Normal-oily and acne prone skin. Not recommended for anyone that is pregnant, on actuate or severe cystic acne.

Microdermabrasion is a form of mechanical exfoliation or micro-resurfacing, that utilizes a specific mechanical medium to gently abrade the top most layer of skin along with adjustable suction. There are many mechanical mediums used for microdermabrasion including: Aluminium Oxide Crystals, Sodium Bicarbonate Crystals, Sodium Chloride Crystals, Bristle tips, natural and synthetic Diamond Tips. DiamondTome is a natural, non-partical form of microdermabrasion that utilizes natural diamond chips at various levels of coarseness attached to the tip of a wand.
DiamondTome eliminates the powders and crystals, by using the polishing action of diamond chips and the cleaning action of controlled vacuum. This non-particle form of microdermabrasion offers a clean controlled procedure.
When you have a Microdermabrasion facial treatment at Paradise Valley Skin Klinic, you will enjoy the added benefits of full custom facial and dermaplaning. The microdermabrasion procedure removes the top most layer of skin by gently exfoliating the skin with natural diamond chips while at the same time vacuuming the dead skin cells away, in a sterile and controlled manner. This exfoliation promotes the growth of healthy new skin cells. You will immediately experience cleaner, softer and smoother skin after with each treatment.
Paradise Valley Skin Klinic also offers Microdermabrasion with Sodium Bicarbonate Crystals
Why do I need Microdermabrasion?
Our skin is constanly growing, similar to our hair and nails. The normal cycle of skin cell turn over is about six weeks. This means that a new skin cell is produced, and slowly moves to the surface of the skin (stratum corneum), then is naturally sloughed or exfoliated off and replaced by a new skin cell. As the skin ages the process of skin cell turn over slows down and dead skin cells build up on the surface of the skin. As the stratum corneum becomes thick with a build up of dead skin cells, this skin will have a rough dull appearance and texture. Pigmented skin cells also becomes more dense causing hyperpigmentation, such as melasma, freckles, sun spots or any skin discoloration to look worse. Dead skin cells can also build up in the pore contributing to blackheads, whiteheads and acne breakouts.
When the skin is exfoliated with microdermabrasion the dead skin cells are immediately removed from the surface of the skin, and the fibroblast is stimulated to produce collagen. Exfoliation is a way of speeding up the process of skin cell turnover. Removing dead skin cells from the skins surface will allow for better penetration of topical skin care products, you can actually double the effectiveness of your products. Exfoliating the skin will also reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation, fine lines, superficial scars and help combat acne.
Is there any discomfort or downtime?
No. Microdermabrasion with the DiamondTome is very comfortable, most people actually enjoy the way it feels. Microdermabrasion feels similar to the “scratchy” surface of a cats tongue, along with mild suction. One advantage to microdermabrasion is there isn’t any down time. You can have a microdermabrasion on your lunch break, reapply makeup and return to work.
What are the limitations of microdermabrasion?
Unfortunately, there are some exaggerated claims to microdermabrasion benefits. It’s important to have a realistic expectation for skin treatments. Microdermabrasion is a fairly superficial form of exfoliation compared to chemical peels and laser resurfacing. Each technique has unique benefits and has a special place in skin care. Microdermabrasion is intended to exfoliate the skin without downtime or discomfort. Treatments can be done on a regular basis to maintain the skin and performed between other skin treatments to expedite and enhance results.
There are limits to microdermabrasion, it does not reach skin below the stratum corneum, even if done once a week it will not have an effect on the deeper layers of skin. It is necessary to reach skin cells at deeper layers to treat many skin conditions, for this reason microdermabrasion can not be used to replace laser resurfacing procedures or chemical peels.
Microdermabrasion alone will not eliminate hyperpigmentation. Exfoliation will remove the dense layers of dead skin cells on the skins surface, by removing these layers, pigmentation will be less dense and the appearance of skin discolorations will be reduced. The discoloration is still there it just appears lighter because it is less dense. As the skin continue’s to “grow” and as the stratum corneum builds back up, the pigmentation will return. Your skin care professional can help you select topical agents to help better treat skin discolorations.
Can I get the same results with Microdermabrasion products at home
No, these products generly use crystals similar to those used in Microdermabrasion treatments. They are basiclly facial scrubs, and don’t exfoliate skin to the same level of a Profesional Microdermabrasion treatment. Proffesional treatments use equipment that allow for controll of the negetive pressure or suction used as well as the release of abrading crystals or the abrasiveness of wand. The technique used also plays a role in the effectiveness of treatment.
Whats Trending Now?
Plastic surgery and cosmetic procedures have been a hot topic lately. Why? Because the cosmetic industry is boosting and is predicted to continue to growing as the economy improves. It is expected that Plastic Surgery and non-surgical cosmetic procedures will soon exceed pre-recession levels. The industry peaked in 2004 and saw a big decline in 2009. According to the ASAPS, Plastic Surgery procedures grew by almost 9% in 2010.
I am not sure if the increase in plastic surgery is a sign of an improved economy or not. I will say that I have seen more clients coming in because they want to stay competitive in the work force, especially in industries such as technology, that attract a younger generation of workers. People that are in sales or work with the public feel that their appearance has an impact on their income or ability to obtain a job. I have also seen an increase new clients, that want to improve their appearance before starting a new job. They are taking advantage of the time away from work to recover from surgery.
