Pat Smith spent 18 years as a registered nurse before trying her hand at skincare. So it's no surprise that she takes a clinical approach to each facial and peel, using the latest technology to treat skin issues at their source. During microdermabrasion treatments, Pat uses a mechanical wand to slough away the top layer of skin and reduce wrinkles. Gentle galvanic currents target acne-prone areas during mechanical facials, and nine types of chemical peels result in skin that's as smooth as a freshly shaved pumpkin.
