Body BeneFits is pleased to offer a state-of-the-art range of services to our clients, including VI Peels, Hydra-Facials, Thermo-Lo, and Skin Pen. These advanced skin care techniques not only produce beautiful results on their own, but when used in tandem with one another, the results are amazing. While Thermo-Lo with Photofacials work well for correcting vascular imperfections and sun damage, these treatments can also be combined for faster results.
Our Laser Technicians are certified and trained by The Texas Laser Institute as Professional Laser Technicians and Laser Safety Officers – Association of Laser Professionals (TLI-ALP) is an approved certifying body by the Texas Department of State Health Services to provide the prerequisite examination for individuals to become a Professional Laser Hair Removal Technician.

Dramatically improve the look and feel of your skin with the soothing and relaxing energy of CellumaCelluma’s unique LED technology emits safe, UV-free low-level light energy that profoundly affects tissue at the cellular level. Blue, red and near-infrared lights are the most commonly used wavelengths in LED phototherapy. These specific wavelengths are well researched and scientifically proven to produce therapeutic benefits. Blue light penetrates through the epidermis and is known to kill P. acnes bacteria. Red light penetrates into the dermal layer and has been shown to enhance collagen and elastin production through photo-biostimulation of fibroblasts for improved skin tone, quality, clarity, and texture. Near-infrared light penetrates deepest to increase micro-circulation and tissue repair, as well as decrease inflammation and reduce pain.
The aging process can cause your akin to become lax, pigmented and rough. Sun exposure and environmental assault just adds to the problem. Aging is inevitable but the VI Peel can make a difference in as little as 7 days. This new generation facial peel is safe for all skin types, and is the only peel safe for use on the eye area, neck, chest, and hands. The VI Peel is great for reversing the signs of sun damage as well as the signs of aging, it can dramatically improve skin tone and texture, it is highly effective in treating hyper-pigmentation (including melasma), and is excellent for clearing acne and improving acne scars. VI Peels stimulate collagen and elastin production; and can produce all of these results with little or no downtime!
SkinPen is the safest, most effective vertical micro-needling device that offers state-of-the-art skin rejuvenating technology. How does it work? SkinPen stimulates the natural production of new collagen and elastin. By creating a series of hundreds of vertical microscopic channels into the dermis, which allows for superior penetration and diffusion of topicals both during and post-procedure, without ablation (heat, or introduction of thermal energy). These fractionated injuries are a quick, safe, and effective percutaneous (through the skin) collagen induction therapy.
What’s more, SkinPen is different than older, traditional micro-needling technologies. Traditional micro-needling dermarollers can bend, break, or even rust. As a result, infection or scarring may occur with reuse. SkinPen is different. Through an optimized micro-channel creation, SkinPen uses straight, medical-grade needles to penetrate at a 90 degree angle to stimulate your skin’s natural ability to produce new collagen and elastin formation, encouraging your skin to look and feel healthier.
This Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), or micro-needling, is the procedure by which the body’s natural response to healing is used to increase the amount of extracellular matrix – such as collagen or elastin – in the skin. The micro-channels created by the SkinPen allow for leakage of blood, serum, and lymph in a controlled and temporary manner. These “injuries” are enough to initiate the wound healing cascade, which is composed of three basic phases: Inflammation, Proliferation, and Remodeling.
Phase One | Inflammation: Activated by piercing the dermal tissue, platelets release cytokines and growth factors which act as signals for the body’s immune system. Neutrophils and macrophages cells are sent in to disinfect the wounds, clear the debris, increase the blood supply (a process called angiogenesis), and begin the creation of fresh, new cellular and extracellular materials (the granulation process).
Phase Two | Proliferation: In this stage, the fibroblasts (cells that make up much of the dermis and create the extracellular matrix), keratinocytes, and epidermal cells continue to divide to populate the areas of damage and secrete growth factors and extracellular matrix, such as elastin and collagen.
Phase Three | Remodeling: At this stage, the wound has been replaced with new dermal tissues, and the newly formed vasculature is now matured. The collagen in the newly formed tissue is now replaced with the stronger collagen, and the tissue contracts to cause a “shrink-wrap” effect of the skin.
In short, the SkinPen Advantages are: 1) offering results to treat fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, hyper-pigmentation, stretch marks, and skin texture; 2) a minimally invasive, non-ablative treatment; 3) a skin rejuvenating treatment with a superior safety profile; and 4) an in-office procedure that is quick and simple.
Platelet -Rich Plasma Micro-Needling
Platelet-Rich Plasma, or PRP is the process of using your own stem cells and micro-needling them into your skin. This process encourages your fibroblasts to stimulate collagen re-growth with a faster healing time than micro-needling alone. This is why PRP is best paired with our SkinPen. PRP facial treatments (sometimes inadvertently referred to as Vampire Facelifts®) are comprised of natural substances your body already produces. There are no synthetic chemicals involved and the procedure takes under an hour. Unlike other treatments, which are used to target specific wrinkle lines or problem areas, PRP stimulates your own collagen renewal for complete rejuvenation, revealing a younger appearance and smoother skin. Because there are no unnatural components involved in the procedure, PRP treatments have a very low risk of causing adverse reactions.
What are the benefits of PRP?
- A progressive non-surgical healing treatment used in a variety of fields
- Easy to use, rapid and effective process that only requires a small sample of blood
- Uses your own platelets as a natural stimulant for collagen (rather than synthetic chemicals)
Available now at Body BeneFits – The HydraFacial® resurfacing procedure, which thoroughly cares for your skin – providing cleansing, exfoliation, extractions, and hydration, including a Vortex-Fusion® of antioxidants, peptides, and hyaluronic acid. The procedure is immediately effective.
This five-step process uses a series of HydroPeel® tips, for Cleansing and Exfoliation, an Acid Peel, Extractions, Hydration, and finally, Protection. Each one has multiple peeling edges to exfoliate the skin several times each pass, achieving better, more even results.
The unique spiral design creates a vortex effect to easily dislodge and remove impurities while simultaneously introducing hydrating skin solutions with potent antioxidants. The HydraFacial® is a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure that delivers instant results – with no discomfort or downtime!
Thermo-Lo Skin Treatments
Another option to laser skin treatments for many of the same skin conditions, including rosacea (redness), melasma, spider veins, cherry hemangiomas (raised, red spots), milia (tiny white bumps or small cysts), acne, skin tags, sebaceous hyperplasia (an enlarging of the sebaceous glands producing yellow, shiny bumps on the face), cholesterol deposits, and more is Thermo-Lo.
Thermo-Lo – removal of a wide range of skin issues, including “sun spots” or “age spots.” It is also used for hair removal. All of these treatments can be done almost anywhere on the body. Best of all, it generally takes only 1 treatment! This is a great addition to our spot treatments along with our IPL.
Thermo-Lo is not a laser; it is a pin-pointed electrical current. Thermo-Lo only works on the top layers of the skin (epidermis) leaving the dermal layers of the skin unaffected. Thermo-Lo can be applied precisely to the area that you want treated, simply touching the epidermis and allowing the current to attract to the water to dehydrate the problem area, causing the body to exfoliate the dried skin over the next few days following treatment.
The down time for Thermo-Lo skin treatments is minimal and the treatment can be permanent. What the client feels during the treatment is a slight heat or pin-pricking sensation – the level of discomfort depending on their pain tolerance. Most clients tolerate the treatment quite easily.
