facial treatment


Getting a facial can be a great way to give your skin a break from its daily encounters with the elements and revive its natural glow. It's also an ideal way to give yourself a break from the stresses of your daily routine and spend some time relaxing and refreshing.

At Pinnacle Dermatology, you can enjoy skin care facials by one of our experienced skin care professionals. We offer several types of facials, so you can be sure to get the exact treatment your skin is craving. 

  • European Facial
  • Delicate Spa Facial
  • Gentlemen's Spa Facial
European Facial

The European Facial is our most requested facial. Beginning with a thorough analysis to evaluate your skin's current condition, this treatment is then fashioned to fulfill your personal needs. The service includes a thorough cleansing and gentle exfoliation of the skin, followed by a relaxing massage and a customized mask to treat your individual skin concern. 

Dealing with acne, from the mildest to the most severe cases, requires passion, concern and dedication. We offer a Corrective Acne Facial designed to treat the most stressed skin, with each treatment customized to address each client's individual case. The service starts with a thorough cleansing to remove excess oils. Cleansing is followed by a complete exfoliation of the dead cells. Once the skin has been properly cleansed, it is then treated to a warm steam that helps open the pores and prepare the skin for proper extractions. Upon completion, an anti-bacterial calming mask is applied to help soothe and hydrate the skin. Beneficial results are noticeable within days after this thorough, deep pore cleansing.

Delicate Spa Facial

The Delicate Spa Facial is designed for extremely sensitive skin conditions. This calming treatment is an excellent choice for rosacea sufferers who often experience flare ups that result in red, irritated skin. Designed by a dermatologist, this facial uses all natural products. It helps soothe and heal the most inflamed skin.

Gentlemen's Spa Facial

The Gentlemen's Spa Facial specifically addresses skin challenges men often suffer from, including irritation from shaving, the effects of harsh weather conditions and excessively oily skin. The first step is a thorough skin analysis that allows the facial to be customized to each client. The treatment cleanses, hydrates and promotes healthy skin cell turnover. It's a truly relaxing and beneficial treatment for men of all ages.


Chemical Peels

The Midwest climate is not kind to faces. No matter how protective you may be, the blazing sun of the summer months and the cold, dry days of winter leave their marks along with the passing years. If you want to restore a more youthful, healthy look to your face, today there are many approaches to choose from. Chemical peels may be something you should consider.

Chemical peels are not as scary as they may sound. When performed by a trained professional, the procedures are very safe. They can deliver some of the most dramatic improvement possible to aged, scarred and unevenly-pigmented skin.

Depending on the condition of your facial skin and the amount of rejuvenation you're looking for, we will recommend a light, medium or deep peel using the appropriate chemical solution. These peels use alpha and beta hydroxyl acids, such as glycolic acid and salicylic acid respectively.

Alpha hydroxy peels are recommended as an anti aging treatment that aids in diminishing fine lines, sun damage, hyperpigmentation and damage caused by free radicals. There is a slight stinging sensation that alters the skin's pH and allows for the natural exfoliation to begin. The total exfoliation takes approximately 5 to 7 days. There is no downtime required. Beta hydroxy peels offer a superficial peel that stimulates reproduction of new cell growth and can quickly achieve substantial improvement in the appearance of fine lines, acne scars and uneven pigmentation while helping to control excessive oils and acne breakouts. This peel is a quick non-invasive procedure that requires no down time and can easily be done as a lunch time treatment.

These superficial peels require just a short office visit, usually about 15 minutes. After the procedure, you'll be back to your normal activities immediately. Light treatments are often repeated for best effect.

The medium to deep chemical peels are performed by one of our board-certified dermatologists. Medium to deep peels can involve a 1- to 2-hour appointment. The chemical solution may sting a bit, and you'll need to reserve a few days to stay home while your skin heals. If you elect to have a medium to deep peel, chances are you may need just 1 or 2 treatments.

You may be surprised how effective chemical peels can be in minimizing even deep facial wrinkles and other facial defects and how they can complement or help prevent the need for cosmetic surgery. Contact one of our convenient offices for an appointment by calling (815) 744-8554 .



Microdermabrasion is one of today's most popular skin rejuvenation techniques, according to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. It's a good choice for women and men who want to achieve a subtle glow and fresh feeling skin.

This procedure is a resurfacing technique used to remove the outer layer of dead cells that often tend to build up over time, causing the skin to appear dull and nondescript. The Diamondtome Wand® is a wonderful treatment that allows for immediate cell turnover and helps in the reduction of sun damage, age spots, melasma (areas of darker pigmentation), acne scarring, and dehydrated skin cells. This 15 minute procedure is wonderful for all skin conditions and is ideally considered the perfect treatment for healthy skin maintenance. It's great as a lunch time treatment and can be performed as a complement to cosmetic surgery procedures.
