Medical Aesthetic Services

Mela Bright: Skin Brightening System

The Mela Bright system is a superficial peel designed to improve the texture and appearance of hyperpigmented skin which involves a medicated masque and an at-home regimen.

Results may vary, but generally patients will see a significant improvement in the skin appearance. Although most patients experience peeling, not every patient will notice this.

If you do not notice actual peeling, you are still receiving all the benefits of the treatment, such as: improvement of skin tone and texture and diminishment of fine lines and wrinkles.

Medical Facials

An advanced skin fitness medical facial is a results-oriented treatment that is customized by the aesthetician based on individual skin care needs and goals and may include: deep cleansing, exfoliation, extractions, hydration, and medical treatments such as LED, microdermabrasion, dermaplaning, light superficial chemical peels, brightening vitamin c treatments, and oxygenation treatments.

Medical facials can help reduce the appearance of fine lines, acne, hyperpigmentation, and texture. Medical facials will improve the hydration of the skin, stimulate collagen production, and renew the skin for an overall glow.

The West Institute also offers medical facials tailored specifically for men, women, teens, and brides.

TriJuva Medical Facial

Deep cleansing, exfoliation, extractions, a light superficial chemical peel, LED, and an oxygen treatment leave your skin glowing.

Suitable for most skin types, the TriJuva facial improves the texture, pore size, and the tone of your skin. You will notice a reduction in the appearance of hyperpigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles, and acne.

Oxygenation treatment works well with a facial, on its own, or after a laser treatment aiding in faster healing time.

LightStim LED

LightStim uses LED light therapy to deliver light energy in a similar way plants absorb light energy from the sun.

LightStim emits UV-free, beneficial light rays that energize cells and stimulate the body’s natural process to build new proteins and regenerate cells.


Microdermabrasion is an exfoliating treatment where tiny crystals are sprayed onto the skin to gently remove the outer layer of the skin. This treatment helps reduce the appearance of acne scarring, texture, fine lines, and hyperpigmentation.


Dermaplane is a cutting edge technique that is wonderful for polishing and exfoliating the surface of the skin and for those that have “peach fuzz”.

It is a non-invasive treatment that removes the top layer of dead skin cells, resulting in healthier looking skin.

This treatment is great for those with sensitive skin or their facial hair does not respond to laser hair removal.

Dermaplane has no down time and is a great addition to any treatment for a great glow.
