Fire & Ice Red Carpet Facial
A rejuvenating and resurfacing treatment that combines the effectiveness of a facial and a chemical peel with no down time or recovery needed. Referred to as a “red carpet” facial, because it’s the favorite facial of Hollywood stars before a red carpet event. This facial stimulates cellular renewal, reduces fine lines and leaves skin with a hydrated, glowing appearance.
We offer the VI Peel as part of our line of skin care products. The VI Peel will benefit anyone who wants younger and healthier looking skin. Each treatment takes less than 20 minutes and is virtually painless. The VI Peel can begin to reverse the effects of:

Microneedling is also known as collagen induction therapy. It is minimally invasive, requires no downtime, and is considered an effective treatment for brightening and firming skin as well as for treating scarring from acne wounds and stretch marks. Microneedling is often used as an anti-aging procedure that increases the production of collagen and other healing proteins. One of the results of aging is a loss of collagen in the skin, so the benefit of increasing the production of collagen through microneedling is that it keeps the skin looking youthful and firm.
In order to maintain the results of your microneedling procedure, quarterly treatments are recommended minimally. Patients who schedule their visits every 4 to 6 weeks achieve the most optimum results.
Microneedling can be combined with a Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Treatment to heal and repair skin, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, as well as stimulate collagen and elastin renewal in the skin. Often referred to as the “Vampire Facial” when combining these two treatments, a nurse will draw blood from the patient and then use a centrifuge process to separate the plasma from the blood. The patient’s own plasma is then used as the “serum” applied in the microneedling treatment. Leading up to this treatment, patients should avoid excessive sun exposure and regularly apply sunscreen to avoid any unnecessary trauma to the skin.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
Autologous PRP (platelet-rich plasma) can be used for skin rejuvenation on the face, neck, hands or other parts of the body. As it is prepared from your own tissue and contains no synthetic products or ingredients, it can be used in virtually any area of your body.
PRP injection contains high concentrations of your own biologic, nutrient-rich cells. Your blood contains life-giving, fundamental protein growth factors that are designed to restore and strengthen your body. When applied on, in, or under your skin, PRP releases these natural building blocks, promoting skin health by stimulating and rebuilding your underlying skin integrity. After several treatments, the skin shows smooth, very natural plumping of the tissues under the skin and underlying tissues.
This is an office procedure and does not require anesthesia or sedation. Topical and/or local anesthesia is sometimes used. After your blood is drawn, your own PRP is safely and quickly prepared in our office, then used for your treatment, all within the same office visit.
How does PRP injection work?
Think of PRP as a regenerative medicine that causes aesthetic improvement when introduced into or under your skin. Your own concentration of healing cells works within your body to naturally promote a “structure and signals” process for new tissue and collagen growth.
When will I see results?
After the treatment(s), patients often notice fine lines and wrinkles have softened and deeper wrinkled areas (such as nasolabial folds) may look more plump and smoother. The main goal of treatment is to stimulate fibroblasts and develop long-term collagen formation in the dermis. Plumping in the treated areas may slowly be integrated into the dermis, creating a platform for stronger skin and a more healthy appearance. Overall, results are gradual and will vary from person to person, based on health, age, and genetic make-up. Most patients enjoy quantifiable improvements in skin complexion, texture, and tone, usually within three to five weeks. Subtle improvements can continue for up to one year, particularly with multiple treatments.
What areas can be treated with platelet-rich plasma?
PRP is completely your own tissue and contains no synthetic products or ingredients. Therefore, virtually any area of the body can be treated, such as the face, neck, chest, hands, scars, etc. PRP is sometimes applied topically (after skin treatments, either with needles or lasers). Injected beneath the skin, PRP may act as both a volume enhancer and agent of skin rejuvenation.
What does “autologous” mean?
When your own tissue is grafted on you or given back to you, it is called an autologous graft, by far the safest and longest lasting-type of tissue graft. Placing your own fat on the face, breasts, or hands is autologous grafting. You may think of it as a graft from “me to me.”
When will I be able to return to work?
There is some swelling and redness for several hours after the treatment. You should be able to return to work the next day.
How many treatments will I need?
The basic strategy for a PRP injection program can range from one to four treatments spaced at least four to six weeks apart. Once you discuss the primary priorities of your skin needs with your physicians, the number of treatments may vary.
Are there any side effects?
Because all of the components in PRP are from you and you alone (autologous in origin) there is virtually no risk of an allergic reaction or intolerance. Nevertheless (before the treatment) you need to disclose all medications you are taking (including herbs) to your doctor.
How will I take care of my skin after the treatment?
In order to enjoy a maximum response to your PRP injection treatment, you should eat right, drink lots of water and incorporate the facial skin care recommended by your physician.
A safe and effective physical exfoliation using a medical-grade sterile blade. This treatment removes the top-most layers of dead skin along with fine, vellus hair (aka peach fuzz). Dermaplaning leaves your skin feeling healthy and smooth with no downtown. This can be a stand-alone treatment, or a perfect addition to most facial treatments, chemical peels and laser treatments.
Microdermabrasion is an easy, safe, and effective anti-aging treatment with many benefits! It softens fine lines and wrinkles, helps to smooth coarsely textured skin, decreases the appearance of shallow scars, and reduces superficial hyper-pigmentation – also known as age spots. The process of microdermabrasion also makes it easier for high-tech serums and skin care products to penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin and helps build collagen – giving skin a plump, youthful appearance.
Permanent Makeup Artistry
Our medical aesthetician, Lauri Brolund, is also a licensed tattoo artist specializing in permanent makeup. The age range of permanent makeup clients is broad, but universally, most clients make this decision because cosmetic tattoos can be a tremendous time saver. The most common permanent makeup (aka micropigmentation) choices are eyebrows and eyeliner; however, some individuals choose to add pigment to their lips as well. Cosmetic tattoos can also be used to add freckling or to reduce the appearance of scars. There is minimal or no downtime, and very little risk of infection and/or allergic reactions. Clients should see the final results in four to six weeks (giving time for any swelling to subside); results typically last three to five years before color begins to fade.
Frantz Cosmetic Center provides this service for a nominal fee. Our aesthetician will remove unruly brow hair while creating or maintaining your desired eyebrow shape and/or smooth lips appearance.
