What is a Medical Esthetician?

Licensed Medical Estheticians (LME) are estheticians with extensive training in skincare.  They have a deep knowledge of dermatology and are trained to use advanced skin rejuvenation techniques.  Compared to a general esthetician, a medical esthetician has the ability to deliver more dramatic results through treatments such as chemical peels and microdermabrasion.


What can a Medical Esthetician do for you?

Medical Estheticians address all skin concerns but primarily focus on facial skin care.   Many patients seek LME care for the following reasons:

  • Acne

  • Wrinkles

  • Age spots

  • Graceful aging

  • Skin analysis 

  • Eczema (we encourage you to combine treatments with our ND)

  • Unwanted hair growth


What does it look like to work with a Medical Esthetician?

Your first session with our Medical Esthetician will leave you in awe of your skin's details.  A magnified analysis of your skin's "problem areas" will provide you and your clinician with a foundation.  Moving forwards, your esthetician will formulate appropriate treatment steps to help you reach your beauty goals.  This may include a variety of techniques including, but not limited to: 

Specialty Facials

  • Be Clear Purifying Facial - ​Inhibit the spots, increase the confidence.  An ideal teen facial or mild preventative acne-formation treatment. The treatment includes a thorough deep cleanse and exfoliation. Ideal for occasional hormonal breakouts or for the individual who craves a deep cleanse at a cellular level.

  • Blissful Back Facial - Skin care treatments shouldn't be limited to your face and neck. With summer just around the corner it's time to get your back looking its best. Often times our least seen areas are in most need of our attention. Acne, sweat, dryness, irritation, and rashes are just a few examples of what our skin goes through over the Winter months. During this 50 minute treatment you'll experience one of the most relaxing and stimulating skin treatments you never knew you needed, and now, can't go without!

  • O2 Lift Facial - A hydration and oxygen combination that promotes divine hydration. This luxurious treatment infuses oxygen, plant-derived anti-aging stem cells, peptides and a high concentration of enzymatic botanicals into the skin leaving it luminous, refreshed and rejuvenated. This is an ideal prep program immediately before any event. Get Red Carpet Ready!!

  • Max Stem Facial - An anti-aging, redness-diffusing active facial. This treatment strikes the ideal balance between a gentle peel and a therapeutic facial, and is designed to really target those pesky wrinkles, elasticity concerns and combat generally lethargic and dull skin. All the latest anti-aging technology gives you results driven luxury.

  • Anti-Oxidant, Anti-aging Facial - Replenish what your lifestyle diminishes. The facial that does it all – even the most experienced ‘facial enthusiast’ will be impressed! This cleansing and invigorating vitamin-infused treatment will deliver tightening, lightening, brightening and nourishing hydration to leave you feeling fully refreshed and renewed.

  • Illuminating Facial - Clarity in an instant. A clinical results-driven facial designed to give beautiful luminosity, radiance and glow. The treatment uses a blend of powerful antioxidant protection, nutrition and enzymes all sandwiched together to provide immediate measurable differences. Perfect for the more delicate skins.

  • MIcrodermabrasion is an extremely popular procedure used for the treatment of a variety of skin problems and for the maintenance of healthy skin.  The procedure involves passing a diamond encrusted device over the skin with light suction to remove the top layer of skin called the Stratum Corneum.

  • Dermaplaning is a very effective exfoliation procedure that can be performed quickly and with minimal skin irritation.  After your Dermaplane procedure is complete, your skin will feel smoother, and much of the fine hair on the face will also be eliminated.

  • Pay attention to the region that was once forgotten. The neck region is often a zone of concern for many when it comes to aging. This stand-alone treatment offers the ability to defy years within an hour. It guarantees fuller, plumper, healthier and more vibrant skin for anyone who may have “neck-lected” this particular region!

  • Ivy Esthetics offers brow & lash tinting for those who want their eyebrow color to match their hair &/or completion tone. For those seeking natural dark lashes we are here to help make that happen.  For those seeking a curl for their lashes we also offer LASH PERMS. Say goodbye to your hand held lash curlers & say hello to a long lasting lash perm!
