The Retreat secludes patrons in a soothing atmosphere accented with earthy tones, tranquil water features, and sleek slate tiles for relaxing and beautifying services. During the microdermabrasion treatment, guests settle back as an experienced aesthetician blasts interloping layers from the skin’s surface using a targeted jet of fine micronized crystals, creating a clearer complexion and a softer exfoliation than rubbing faces with soccer cleats. This gentle treatment is known to effectively minimize the appearance of brown spots, fine lines, and light scarring. Afterward, a revitalizing facial enhances smile canvases by flushing dirt, oil, and microscopic sand castles from pores.
Led by Dr. Grace Kwon Hong, SkinRenew Laser Medical Center’s physician-only team unearths youthful countenances and helps to maintain overall skin strength. During the microdermabrasion treatment, a physician deftly manipulates a handheld tool that directs minute aluminum-oxide crystals across the epidermis, gently exfoliating away dead cells to reveal the more even complexion and healthier skin that’s been biding its time in the dermis ever since Guiding Light went off the air.

The staff consults with patients to craft plans focused on minimal downtime and quick recovery. Dr. Amirhamzeh maintains affiliations with many state, national, and intergalactic medical societies, including the Society for Vascular Surgery and the American Medical Association.
When asked about her stance on skincare products, Jamie Jacob’s answer is simple: “If it doesn’t do something amazing, I don’t carry it.” The veteran aesthetician honed her keen ability to weed out the unworthy contenders through 600 hours of cosmetology schooling, which included extra training with Dermalogica, Eminence, Skin Script, and Tu'el Skin Care lines. Much like beauty-pageant contests, who are judged on personality alone, Jamie’s services span the beauty spectrum with an array of facials, waxing, and microdermabrasion treatments that keep epidermal expanses silky smooth, as well as massages that go hand-to-hand against troublesome aches.
