O’Neill Plastic Surgery offers a wide range of facial treatments and skincare services to keep you radiant and glowing. We are taking some time to walk through our list of skincare treatments to help inform you of what service would benefit your specific skin type.

Illumina

This illuminating facial uses anti-aging and brightening products from Zo Skin Health, as well as SkinCeuticals. The Illumina facial is a great option for anyone who desires a brighter complexion. Whether you are interested in evening out skin tone, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, or are looking to improve the appearance of sun damage, the Illumina facial will leave you glowing.

Skin Quench

During the winter months, everyone could benefit from some much-needed hydration. Less water intake and harsh winter weather can wreak havoc on our skin. Enter the Skin Quench facial. This service utilizes Zo Skin Health, as well as SkinCeuticals, Ultra Hydration Products to deliver effective soothing moisturization. This treatment best lends itself to those with dry skin but can also be scheduled whenever your skin needs a hydrating pick-me-up.

Deep Pore

The Deep Pore facial is ideal for those with oily, acne-prone skin. Featuring clarifying products by Zo Skin Health, this treatment thoroughly cleanses, decongests, and balances the skin, ridding it from excess oil and dead skin. If you want to start your 2021 off with a fresh face, look no further than the Deep Pore facial.

3 Step Stimulation Peel

The Zo Medical 3 Step Peel is a signature skin care treatment that utilizes a blend of exfoliants, including a 6% concentration of retinol, that work to stimulate collagen production and restore moisture balance. The result of this treatment is smoother, tighter, softer looking skin. While this peel can be tailored to your skin type, it is especially effective for those with acne, fine lines, dullness, or large pores. You should factor in some downtime a couple of days following this treatment, as well as a 6 week skincare prep leading up to peel.

Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning is a manual exfoliating treatment for everyone. This treatment involves the use of a surgical scalpel to safely, gently, and painlessly remove the top layer of dead skin, as well as the vellus hair. This service works well with most facial treatments and, in fact, it is recommended.

Peel and Go

Our Peel and Go service features products from the Ossential Stimulator Peel to deliver healthy, glowing skin with zero downtime. This treatment is quick, easy, and effective. It uses three different types of acids- Salicylic acid, lactic acid, and citric acid- to exfoliate the cell and promote cell turnover. The Peel and Go treatment is perfect for those who want a quick and effective skin treatment. Recommended with this is dermaplaning and a series of treatments.

HydraFacial

A HydraFacial is a non-invasive treatment that provides instant results for all skin types with no downtime. It’s a 30-60 minute treatment that removes dead skin cells and extracts impurities while simultaneously delivering the skin with cleansing, hydrating, or exfoliating serums. This facial treatment is soothing, refreshing, non-irritating and an immediately effective method called hydradermabrasion.
