LED Mask Treatment

**New service offered by SkinWorks by Melanie!
At first glance, you may think “Storm Trooper” or “Michael Myers??”, but rest assured, the mask-wearer is unharmed. Celebrities like Katy Perry, Jessica Alba and Linda Evangelista have become ambassadors of “LED therapy” by posting pictures of themselves on Instagram (#LEDmask).

The mask contains dozens of LED bulbs (light-emitting diodes) that radiate and tackle different skin concerns. It also allows for better product absorption, and is best used in conjunction with a professional skin care regimen.

LED Light Therapy has been thoroughly tested, evaluated and validated by hundreds of Universities, medical labs and even NASA.

Red(630 nm)— One of the most powerful colors to increase blood circulation, stimulates skin cells to produce collagen to achieve firmness and smoother skin texture. The red light (penetrates 8-10mm) is suitable for any type of skin; it can reach the dermis level to stimulate skin cells. Improving blood circulation and collagen production can reduce wrinkles and make skin more elastic and smooth.
Blue(415 nm)—Excellent for treating acne, kills bacteria, calms inflammation. The calming blue light (penetrating about 0.5mm) is suitable for sensitive, oily and acne prone skin. It reduces sebum secretion, effectively treating breakouts and healing damaged skin.

Green(525 nm)—Anti-aging and brightening, smooths wrinkles and fine lines, cures wounds, brightens. The green light is suitable for combination and hyper-pigmented skin. It also stimulates collagen and elastin production.
LED therapy has also been proven to effectively aid in seasonal depression and other emotional stresses!

$150 – 50min
For a limited time only, add a 15min. LED Mask Treatment to any Facial for only $20!
(Regular price after introductory period: $30)

Personalized Treatment Plans

From skin analysis to follow up treatment plans, our facials are a fully customized experience. Lymphatic Drainage Facial Massage and Chakra Balance included with all facials.


As we age, our skin loses its youthful essence. Skin is left vulnerable to harmful environmental aggressors on a daily basis, enhancing the detrimental effects of aging such as sags, fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots, etc…

Chemical peels are a great way to exfoliate the epidermis to facilitate cell turnover and reveal the newer, fresher skin underneath. Chemical peels break down the desmosomes (the glue that binds the skin cells together) in order to open up the epidermis (surface of the skin) and allow for products to actually penetrate to achieve the healing of damaged tissue and replace missing collagen and elastin. Removing tired, dead, keratinized skin cells further enhances product efficacy and penetration, and unveils more even, clearer, smoother skin.

Many chemical peels focus on key acids that are effective when applied topically. Applying acids onto the skin not only exfoliates, but also provides nourishment and hydration leaving the skin with a healthy “dewy” glow.

“Melanie did a wonderful job with my extremely sensitive skin. She was gentle, knowledgeable and explained everything. My skin feels amazing now!”

“I didn’t get facials for a long time because I couldn’t find someone that I can trust with my skin. From now on…, Melanie is going to be the only one to take care of my facials. She is very knowledgeable and has a gentle touch.”

“My experience at SkinWorks by Melanie couldn’t have been any better. Melanie is so professional and knowledgeable, as well as, friendly and down to earth. She really knows her stuff!!”

“I cannot tell you how thankful I am for the facial, microderm and the skincare products- I love them all!!! I have noticed such a big difference and I am so happy with the results.”

I saw Melanie recently for a facial and microdermabrasion and within days had already seen great results! I was mid-breakout at the time I saw her and my skin quickly cleared up within a couple of days after. She was extremely helpful in educating me on how to get the best results post-treatment and how to maintain a daily skin care routine specific to my skin type and current issues. I will absolutely be going back and highly recommend her!
