When we sat down with Spa Derma’s Jessica we were in awe as we heard all about the latest gadgets they are working with such as the Venus Freeze which  improves cellulite, tightens skin and reduces the appearance of wrinkles. Also in their arsenal is the Light Sheer Duet, the latest in laser removal technology which delivers incredible results with less pain and in shorter time. (Spa Derma is one of the few spas in Chicago to have these!) However, as much as we love new gadgets we could not resist learning more about their most popular service, the signature Micro Peel, a hybrid service that combines the exfoliating powers of  Microdermabrasion with the  brightening and lightening effects of a chemical peel. It is important to note that just as not all skins are alike, not all chemical peels are alike. Spa Derma offers a wide range of peels that will match any skin type and needs. Also, rest assured that you are in good hands for all Spa Derma technicians have over 10 years of experience!

What is Microdermabrasion? A non-invasive exfoliation treatment that uses crystals to break up dull, dead skin. At the same time it suctions to clear away debris, while evening texture and promoting collagen production.



  • Fresh and glowing skin.

  • Diminishes the appearance of enlarged pores,coarse      textured skin, and fine lines and wrinkles.

  • Makes it easy for skin care products to penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin to help build collagen, which gives skin its youthful appearance.
