The foundation for beautiful vibrant skin begins with a healthy lifestyle and proper nutrition.

Reducing fine lines, wrinkles, and unwanted pigmentation are all essential components of an effective anti-aging program.
My clientele is based on men and women, from teenagers to the elderly, and they span over a variety of ethnic backgrounds. My varied clientele has given me the experience I need to create the perfect program for you.
To maintain your healthy skin, our office carries medical-grade skin care products that are purified, non-irritating, and free of artificial colors and fragrances. Together we can pamper your skin and optimize your natural beauty!
THE IMPORTANCE OF PROPER SKIN CARE
There are many elements to be considered for a lifestyle that encourages healthy skin care. Smoking, sun exposure, stress, and poor diet are of the most common contributors to unhealthy skin. However, simply adhering to a lifestyle that avoids these daily threats to healthy skin is not always sufficient. Fortunately, a variety of treatments by licensed clinical esthetician Nancy Nims and an array of cosmetic products are available from our office to help maintain a vibrant youthful appearance.
WHY HAVE COSMETIC SURGERY WITHOUT MAINTAINING YOUR RESULTS?
Whether you’ve had cosmetic surgery and looking to preserve your results or simply in need of rejuvenating your skin, our office offers a variety of treatments to help you achieve your goals in skin care.
FACIALS AND PEELS FOR MEN AND WOMEN
Microdermabrasion: This treatment enhances the look of your skin by rejuvenating, helping erase the telltale signs of aging including fine lines and wrinkles, discoloration and uneven texture. Along with the exfoliation of the skin, the microdermabrasion technique stimulates the production of collagen and elastin which results in firmer and more youthful looking skin. This treatment takes about 45 minutes.
The Blueberry Smoothie Peel: An effective anti-oxidant exfoliating scrub containing lactic acid, blueberries, blue cornmeal and vitamin C is applied. Good for oily/problem skin but also effective for anti-aging and sensitive/mature skin types. Lactic acid stimulates and hydrates while cornmeal rids excess dead skin build up. Extractions and a mask are included. This is a great alternative to Microdermabrasion and takes about 45 minutes.
Enzyme Peel: This treatment is great for the sensitive client. This type of exfoliation is gentle, yet effective for removing dead skin cells. After cleansing, an enzyme mask is applied. A lavender-scented warm towel will remove the mask and will be followed by extractions. A mask to rejuvenate the skin and a sun block moisturizer will complete this relaxing treatment. The entire process takes about 45 minutes.
Alpha Hydroxy Treatment: Also known as Lactic, Glycolic, or Salicylic acid peel. This is a great maintenance or rejuvenation treatment. This treatment gradually exfoliates surface dead skin cells for a smooth and glowing complexion. Extractions and a mask are included. Excellent for treating acne, uneven skin tones and wrinkles. This treatment takes about 45 minutes.
Alpha Hydroxy Facial: This corrective facial is designed to help the skin exfoliate at a quicker rate, leaving it smoother and more refined. Your skin will be cleansed, toned, exfoliated, steamed, extractions done where needed, a light neck and décolleté massage, mask, plus refreshing moisturizer. The Alpha Hydroxy Facial takes about 60 minutes.
The Ultimate Facial: After a skin analysis, Nancy will decide what the best options would be to benefit your skin. Then relax and enjoy a deep pore cleansing, steam, exfoliation, face and neck massage, gentle extractions, mask, and a moisturizer for your skin type. After this treatment you will be glowing and feeling refreshed. The Ultimate Facial takes approximately 60 minutes.
CLINICAL PEELS FOR MEN AND WOMEN
Epi-Blading/Dermaplaning Peel: This is a great way to “refinish” the skin’s top layers through a method of controlled surgical scraping while getting rid of excess facial hair and peach fuzz. This peel exfoliates your skin helping to reduce clogged pores, scarring and pigmentation. This treatment will be followed with a lactic or enzyme peel to get the last traces of dead skin cells off. Your skin will feel smooth and hair free. This clinical peel takes about 60 minutes. Purity Peel: A detoxifying treatment that fights bacteria, heals acne lesions, and calms the skin. Active ingredients include salicylic acid, lactic acid, TCA, and vitamin A. The result is a soothing, exfoliating, medical strength peel that is excellent for acne or impure skin. Extractions included along with a mask. The Purity Peel takes about 45 minutes.
Timeless Peel: The “overnight” peel is safe and effective and a must for past sun-worshippers. Vitamin A stimulates cell turnover, resulting in smoother, denser, hydrated skin. It also works well to treat fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage and it lightens and tightens by stimulating collagen. Expect light to moderate peeling for 3-5 days. The treatment takes about 30 minutes.
TCA Peel: A medium depth chemical peel that stimulates collagen while treating fine lines and wrinkles, scarring, and pigmentation. Excellent for all skin types. You will have some redness as if you have a sunburn. Expect a moderate peel so don’t plan any big events around this time. The TCA Peel takes about 30 minutes.
