You can easily add-on an additional service to most of our treatments, and we have loads of great things to select! Pick and choose exactly what you want (be warned, you're gonna want them all).
One of the best treatment add-ons! Everyone is talking about microneedling, and how it improves absorption of serums deeper into the skin. But there are needles. And pain. And downtime due to redness. (Not to mention other potential side effects, like infection). So now for the good news: RevitaPen gives you results using nano technology rather than needles. What??? Did I just say NO NEEDLES?!?! Yep, and no downtime.
RevitaPen uses nano-technology sized spheres on the device tip that create tiny openings in the bi-layers of the skin (painless!). With this modality, treatment serums easily absorb, reaching the depth needed to more efficiently create real change in the skin. In a nutshell, RevitaPen fast-tracks your treatment results. When you feed and stimulate the deeper layers of the skin, you get a higher level of cellular activity, and more cellular activity means a faster turnover of the older top layer of the skin. Faster turnover means faster results. Hurrah!
Whatever your skin concerns (age-management, blemishes, or the dark spots of hyperpigmentation) RevitaPen delivery of treatment serums will penetrate deeper into your skin, and will restore the ideal micro-environment your skin needs for optimal function and regeneration. Additionally, the serums used at Illumination Skin Spa have liposome spheres and Vectorized Technology delivery systems, making them more easily absorbed than other skin care products. Bam! Can you say RESULTS?! Find more RevitaPen FAQs and information HERE.

PARAFFIN HAND TREATMENT
Have you had one? Total bliss. I use a medical/food grade paraffin that is refined, distilled, purified, and filter pressed. This high quality, super refined paraffin wax is heated and brushed onto your hands in layers, then your hands are swaddled in mitts while the paraffin works its magic. Your hands reemerge moisturized and healthier looking, and oh so silky soft. This treatment also delivers fast temporary relief for those suffering joint aches and pains.
Your hands are then massaged with one of two moisturizers targeted for either sun damage and hyperpigmentation, or just extra hydration (both are anti-aging, of course!).
LED (Light Emitting Diode) TREATMENT
This is totally non-invasive with zero downtime. It's kinda like having a tanning panel placed above your face (you'll even wear the little goggles), but instead of damaging your skin, these light wavelengths will improve it. You will receive either red, blue, green, or yellow light -- or a combination treatment. LED treatments work by using an array of bright light-emitting diodes (originally developed by NASA!) that send low-level light energy into the deeper layers of the skin.
Red Light: 640nm (Red Wavelength)
Skin penetration depth: 1-6mm
Effect: The most penetrating color. Enhances skin cell regeneration, stimulates circulation, improves acne, treats allergic dermatitis and promotes collagen proliferation to improve the appearance of wrinkles, and assist in product absorption.
Blue Light: 423nm (Purple Wavelength)
Skin penetration depth: 1mm
Effect: Bacteria killing, skin clearing, cell activating, assists in injury recovery, helps acne skin sterilization, inhibits sebaceous gland activity, and good for infection prevention.
Green Light: 532nm (Green Wavelength)
Skin penetration depth: 0.5-2mm
Effect: Effective reduction of melanin cell activity, decreasing pigment formation, reducing sebaceous gland excitation, stabilization of sensitive skin, calming.
Yellow Light: 583nm (Yellow Wavelength)
Skin penetration depth: 1-2mm
Effect: Improves cell's oxygen function, promoting micro-circulation, decomposing pigment, promoting lymph drainage -- soothes skin roughness, red spots and general redness.
Dubbed the "5 Minute Facial-lift" due to its often dramatic results, microcurrent is one of the hottest innovations in the anti-aging industry. It's used in top spas and medical offices for facial contouring, toning and firming of aging skin. Microcurrent is a low-level current that mimics the body’s natural current and can provide both instant and cumulative anti-aging results. Because microcurrent works sub-sensory, the treatment is soothing and most clients feel nothing at all. Get more information on microcurrent HERE.
While most salons use a conductive gel similar to what's used during an ultrasound, our gel is nutrient and peptide rich to further benefit and enhance your skin. Ready to have a boost, and tone those facial muscles? This add-on is perfect for you!
HIGH FREQUENCY TREATMENT
There are generally two types of wands, violet and orange. Traditionally, the violet electrode is used by professionals to treat acne prone skin. An extremely small amount of ultra-violet light is emitted when the violet electrode makes contact with the skin. Such brief and low level UV exposure is considered very safe (non-skin damaging) and provides excellent anti-bacterial and healing benefits. High frequency gently cleanses the skin of acne-causing bacteria and unwanted toxins while making the skin more receptive to acne lotions, creams and other skin treatment products. It also pushes oxygen into the skin helping to kill the acne causing bacteria (which thrives only without oxygen, oxygen is acne's enemy and our best friend!). It has been shown to dry oily patches, help clear acne, eliminate blemishes, and more. The results can be extremely dramatic - even after only a few treatments!
The orange electrodes are indicated in the treatment of aging skin because they are said to direct more warmth to the treatment area which promotes blood circulation, encourages cellular turnover and improves product penetration. The high frequency electrical current not only subtly warms the skin tissue, it also causes blood circulation to immediately rush to the skin. Consequently, tiny underlying blood vessels and muscle groups contract to flush out toxins, help fade dark eye circles, and triggers acceleration of collagen and elastin production.
This treatment add-on is especially important for those with acne, or even just a few breakouts!
NECK & DECOLLETAGE
These areas are usually screaming, "Don't forget meeeeeee!!!" With this treatment we hear their calls. Bring that facial down by adding the neck and chest to your already scheduled service. We'll use ingredients that target sagging and lax skin, deep creases, and wrinkles and fine lines. Let's pamper this area, which tends to show age more quickly (it doesn't help that people neglect to take their sunscreen down to these vulnerable places...shame, shame!). We'll not only exfoliate and masque the neck and chest, but drench the skin in hyaluronic acid and luxurious neck firming treatment cream. This cream offers the maximum allowable amount of active ingredients, and includes peptides and plant stem cells. These ingredients increase elasticity, brighten, tighten and define the neck and jawline. Even better, they're encapsulated with Vectorizing spheres, so those ingredients keep penetrating and working for DAYS! Woohoo!
