Skin Care Treatments

Licensed clinical aestheticians at The Aesthetic Center by Kaiser Permanente perform medically based, non-invasive, aesthetic treatments which help improve skin condition and diminish or eliminate visible signs of aging and photo damage. They analyze the skin and recommend the appropriate treatment or procedure that best meets the needs of the patient. The aestheticians are both partner and guide to their patients as they strive toward their skin care goals.

Complimentary Skin Care Evaluation ($35 value)

Meet with a licensed clinical aesthetician to discuss your skin condition and your skin care goals. Your aesthetician will work with you to develop a customized program to improve the condition of your skin, preserve its youthfulness, and minimize damage to your skin. Your health history, your lifestyle, and personal preferences will be taken in consideration as your aesthetician recommends various options that are right for you, be they in-office procedures or an at-home skin care regimen.


Microdermabrasion is a safe, painless procedure that gently exfoliates the epidermal layer to reveal the underlying more youthful looking skin. The Aesthetic Center at Kaiser Permanente uses the DiamondTome® Skin Resurfacing System which is equipped with diamond tip wands. This system allows the aesthetician to target specific areas and help diminish fine lines, hyperpigmentation, acne scarring, and other irregularities. For the most effective results, a series of six treatments is recommended.

DiamondTome™ Skin Resurfacing System

Regular microdermabrasion – a full treatment covering the face, neck, and décolletage area.

Mini microdermabrasion – a shorter procedure focusing on the face.

Combo – a combination treatment which includes a facial peel and a mini microdermabrasion procedure to achieve effective results in the shortest amount of time.

Facial Peels

Chemical Peels assist in removing the top layers of the skin to reveal the underlying newer, more vibrant, and glowing skin. These peels help diminish fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, acne, rosacea, and melasma. At The Aesthetic Center, we carry a variety of peels to address your specific concerns.

When preparing for a chemical peel, be sure that if you are using any retinol products, that you stop using them at least 5-7 days prior to your peel. You must not be using Acutane, or be pregnant. Most of our peels have little or no downtime, but you should avoid using anything abrasive and avoid the sun for at least a few days following a peel.

The primary active ingredient in the Epionce Malic Peel is an organic alpha hydroxy acid derived from apples. Apple exfoliants work by removing the dead surface layer of the skin and tightening pores. This results in smoother, more even skin, with less visible lines and wrinkles. This is a relatively mild peel and is appropriate for a wide range of skin types.

Obagi Blue Peel Radiance is a salicylic based peel that produces brighter, tighter, smoother skin with little or no downtime. This peel helps to improve photodamage, texture, and tone of skin. This is extremely beneficial for darker-skinned patients with pigmentary changes.

SkinCeutical’s Gel Peel GL is an alpha hydroxy acid based peel which combines the deep penetrating properties of glycolic acid with the moisture stimulating effects of lactic acid. Together, they accelerate cell renewal, stimulate collagen production, and improve skin elasticity. This is a light chemical peel that is ideal for photo-damaged skin.

Gel Peel SM synergistically combines a beta hydroxy acid with an alpha hydroxy acid to produce a perfectly balanced peel that is appropriate for sensitive skin. Salicylic acid, which is an oil soluble beta hydroxy acid, decongests pores and dissolves sebum. Mandelic acid, which is an alpha hydroxy acid, but with a large molecular structure, is able to exfoliate the skin without irritation or inflammation. This light peel revitalizes sensitive skin and improves the appearance of problematic skin.

Vi Peel is the seven day peel transformation. This peel helps to improve the texture, tone, and clarity of the skin. It helps reduce the appearance of the size of pores and minimizes acne flare ups. It also reduces or eliminates age spots, hyperpigmentation, melasma, and freckles. The Vi Peel stimulates collagen and elastin production, resulting in firmer, smoother skin.
