New Anti-Aging Client Consultation & Treatment
For new Anti-Aging clients. A 60-minute Anti-Aging facial treatment with thorough skin analysis, home care recommendations and treatment plan. I’ll give your skin the exfoliation and nourishment it needs and we’ll come up with a plan to reach all of your skin goals. Includes complimentary home care trial sizes from AnteAge®, LeMeiux®, skinbetter science® and EltaMD®. *Anti-Aging treatments can be made Acne-Safe with product substitutions.
LeMieux® Anti-Aging Facial
Anti-Aging facial treatment using products from LeMieux® to improve signs of aging and target lines, wrinkles, pigmentation and texture issues. Includes oil cleanse, hydrating cleanse, three forms of exfoliation (physical, ultrasonic, and chemical), targeted serum with red LED light, hydrating and brightening mask, and sun protection. (May substitute light dermaplaning in place of the chemical peel.) Downtime: 0-1 day.
AnteAge® MD Growth Factor Facial
My most luxurious treatment! Utilizes a succession of dermaplaning, pineapple and papaya enzymes to dissolve cellular buildup and Nano-infusion with AnteAge® Professional bone marrow stem cell growth factors to treat fine lines, wrinkles, texture, pore size and pigmentation. Finishes with an ultra-hydrating mask, red LED, facial massage, intensive moisturizer and EltaMD SPF. Includes AnteAge post-treatment home care for optimal results. Downtime: 0-12 hours, followed by glowing, gorgeous skin.
Skinceuticals® Red Carpet Peel
One of my personal favorites! Originally designed for “red carpet” events, this treatment combines dermaplaning with the SkinCeuticals® Sensitive Skin Micropeel for a photo-perfect look! Suitable for all skin types, even sensitive skin, this treatment exfoliates, decongests pores, hydrates and helps improve the skin’s overall appearance. Downtime: 1-2 days of feeling raw with some dry patches, followed by glowing, gorgeous skin.
Seasonal Medium-Depth Chemical Peel (November 1 – February 28)
A multi-layer peel to treat fine lines and wrinkles, large pores, texture issues and pigmentation. Acids to choose from include (AHA) Glycolic, Lactic, Mandelic; (BHA) Salicylic; vitamin C; retinol; and (TCA) Trichloracetic Acid. Downtime: peeling for 2-3 days with no sun exposure for 7 days.
New Acne Client Consultation & Treatment
For new and returning Acne Clients. A 90-Minute Consultation & Double Extraction Facial Treatment with skin care analysis, home care recommendations and treatment plan to help you reach all of your skin goals. Be sure to complete the Acne Quiz after making your appointment! Downtime: peeling and post-extraction redness for 1-2 days.
Double Extraction Acne Facial
For established Acne Clients with active lesions. Includes my patented Double Extractions technique (machine and manual extractions), POREspective® chemical peel or enzyme, EltaMD® UV Clear, and home care adjustment. Choose 45 minutes if you are coming in every 2 weeks for treatments while you have active acne OR if your acne is under control and you want a lighter monthly treatment for maintenance. Choose 75/60 minutes if you need a deeper monthly treatment, which allows more time for a thorough cleaning, more extractions to purge existing acne plugs, and extra layers of my chemical peel to exfoliate the skin, smooth overall texture, and flush deep acne impactions to the surface. Downtime: peeling and post-extraction redness for 1-2 days.
ADD ON 30 Minutes (for Acne Treatment, Extractions or Consultation)
Additional time for treatments, extractions or consultation may be added at $75 per half-hour.

I was referred to Alissa by both my gynecologist and dermatologist. I am thrilled with my new complexion, and getting ready in the morning is so easy now because I don’t have to layer on the concealer. I can sweat it out in the gym and not have to worry about getting any new breakouts. Thank you, Alissa!
Brooke, Austin Texas
My acne is a truly persistent beast. Alissa was able to pinpoint what was causing my acne and gave me safe replacements. I kid you not, my skin cleared up in a few weeks! After 20 YEARS of searching, I finally found my miracle. I’m truly astounded and so grateful to have found Alissa.
Meg, Austin Texas
I cannot sing the praises of Alissa enough. I am clear after twelve years of misery with cystic and hormonal acne that plagued me for most of my childhood and young adulthood. Years later, I’m still loving my skin. I never wear makeup anymore and my quality of life has just improved so much. Alissa has been a lifesaver in every way.
Annabelle, Kennebunk, Maine
Alissa has excellent knowledge and absolutely cares about you getting results. She works hard for you to have great skin. I’m that girl that used to have acne, instead of the girl that has acne. It’s a great feeling!
Meg, Houston Texas
I moved to Texas from Colorado when I experienced the worst breakout I have had in my life. I was in a new town and didn’t want to leave the house because my face was in such bad shape. I cried almost every morning when I looked at my face. It hurt to smile, talk, and eat. Alissa has given me the confidence to go back out in public, meet new people, and experience Austin!
Stephanie, San Francisco CA
I am a 42 year old female who struggled with acne for years. I had someone tell me for the first time in my life that my skin was glowing only 3 weeks after my first appointment with Alissa. I hear it ALL the time! The days I run around Austin without makeup, in my workout clothes, as so many moms do….I am proud to be makeup free!
