Dermaplaning is a simple and safe procedure for manually exfoliating the epidermis and ridding the skin of fine vellus hair (peach fuzz). Using a blade and a delicate touch, the surface of the skin is abraded using light feathering strokes. Dermaplaning is most often used on patients with rough, dry skin, superficial hyperpigmentation, mild acne scarring, or fine lines and wrinkles. It is also a great treatment for patients who are pregnant or nursing who want a deep exfoliation, but are not allowed to use peeling agents on their skin because of the risk that the chemicals will be absorbed into the blood stream.
Dermaplaning is particularly a great choice for those patients who have excess vellus hair on the skin. This hair often causes a buildup of dirt and oils in the follicles, so removing the hair reveals a smoother and brighter complexion.
Micro-needling, also known as Percutaneous Collagen Induction Therapy (PCIT), is a therapy that has been around since the early 1950’s. The therapy has recently received more attention because the equipment for performing it has been improved and perfected. The concept is simple: a specialized “pen”, containing a dozen or more very tiny needles, is expertly glided across the skin by a trained technician to create thousands of microscopic channels or “injuries”. This triggers the body to release its own natural growth factors in response, specifically new collagen and elastin, in a way only the body can do, delivering the purest form of each internally, without additives or preservatives. The result is smoother, younger-looking skin.
These channels have the additional benefit of allowing the technician to “assist” the body in the delivery of its own natural growth factors. Treatment time becomes an optimal time to deliver specialized topical serums and creams to be absorbed more effectively into the skin for additional healing benefits. These products can be applied before, during, or after micro-needling treatment.
Possibly the greatest benefit of micro-needling over other treatments is that while the results of injectables are temporary and the treatment itself needs to be repeated to restore results, micro-needling is a therapy which actually helps the skin heal itself. Several micro-needling treatments are needed initially, generally spaced a month apart, but after that, the results are long lasting.
Micro-needling is extremely effective for treating a variety of skin conditions including wrinkles, scarring, (including acne scarring), stretch marks from pregnancy or weight loss/gain, texture or dryness problems, and hyper-pigmentation issues. Additionally, it has the advantage of being utilized on skin that otherwise may not be well-suited to the irritation of chemical peels or the heat of lasers. Micro-needling involves very little downtime, and most people experience a sunburn-like redness for a day or two post-treatment.
Intense Photo Light (IPL)
As the population ages, ever-increasing numbers of people are interested in improving their appearance. IPL technology can be used to help restore the skin’s youthful appearance.
IPL technology improves the appearance of photoaged skin, removes age spots (sun-induced freckles), most benign brown pigments, and redness caused by broken capillaries through a process called photorejuvenation for face and body. The process is ideal for patients with active lifestyles because the procedure requires no downtime and has a low risk of side effects.
The gentle, non-ablative treatments use broad spectrum light to treat the face, chest, neck and hands—virtually anywhere that sun damage shows. A series of three to six treatments is recommended.
Laser Hair Reduction w/LightSheer® Duet™ Laser
Laser Hair Reduction is a long-term solution to unwanted dark hair. The laser light that is emitted is absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicles, creating heat. The heat causes damage to the hair shaft and bulb which significantly alters the ability to re-grow hair. After five to six treatments with the laser you should expect to see a 80-90% reduction in hair.
Oasis Medical Spa and Wellness is proud to offer the latest technology in laser hair reduction: LightSheer® Duet™!! This revolutionary new technology utilizes a vacuum assist and a larger spot size and reduces hair removal treatment times up to 75% and vastly improves patient comfort, eliminating the need for topical anesthetics.
*For all available treatment areas. Consultation is required to determine if you are a candidate. Treatment does not work on all hair colors.
Our daily skin care routine at home is not rigorous enough to keep the face truly clean and to protect it from impurities. As a result, many people get facials from our skin care experts at Twin City Plastic Surgery and Oasis Medical Spa & Wellness. Facials cleanse, remove blackheads and whiteheads, and moisturize the skin, leaving it healthier and more invigorated.
When you feel your skin needs some rejuvenation, when you feel it needs to be deeply cleaned, when you want to improve dry or oily skin, or when you just want some serious stress relief — these are all perfect reasons to come to Twin City Plastic Surgery and Oasis Medical Spa & Wellness for a facial.

These tailored treatments cater to all skin types and include the following services depending on the type of facial chosen: deep cleansing utilizing the Clarisonic technology, extractions, product application, and a head, neck, and shoulder massage to compliment the facial.
Our facials range from a 30-minute “Express” facial, perfect for lunch breaks and for those on a time crunch, to the longer “Deluxe” and “Illuminating” facials with the ultimate pampering and relaxation in mind.
SilkPeel™ Dermalinfusion™ is the only treatment of its kind (non-invasive, crystal-free rejuvenation procedure) to deliver topical skin care products while exfoliating the skin.

We offer several chemical peel options to correct a variety of skin irregularities and the normal signs of aging. The essential function of a chemical peel is to dissolve the connection holding dead cells together on the surface of the skin and to reveal smoother, healthier, clearer more youthful looking skin. Chemical peels help to correct sun-damage, aging, blemish-prone, acne scarring, hyperpigmentation, melasma, or poor elasticity. Depending upon your skin condition, age and lifestyle, we may recommend either a light/medium, or medium/deep chemical peel.
*An aesthetic consultation is required to determine which chemical peel is best for you!
