Aging Gracefully

Aging no longer has to be something we dread. These days, there are simple ways to make the process much easier and less noticeable....without going under the knife!

Avoid premature signs of aging by taking preventative steps now. A lot of times we solely focus on facial skin care, and forget about the rest of our bodies. The entire body is important! Exfoliating the face along with the entire body is key, and here at Delicate Beauty Therapeutic Spa we have numerous exfoliation products and treatments. From rejuvenating chemical peels, Body Foliation Therapy and Flash Exfoliation, our licensed estheticians can tell you the best treatment for your skin type and concerns. In addition, we offer Dermalogica exfoliating products that can be used at home such as the Skin Resurfacing Cleanser, Exfoliating Body Scrub and the Multivitamin Thermafoliant.

Tackle Aging Before It Even Starts!

A common cause of premature aging is incidental sun exposure. That's when our skin is exposed to the sun without any UV protection. This happens when we do every day things like shopping and taking the dog on a quick walk. It is important that we wear sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher everyday on all exposed body parts. Dermalogica's Solar Defense System combines the latest sunscreen technology and ingredients to provide maximum UV protection.

The results of adult acne can also lead to premature skin aging. DBTS offers a Medicated Clearing Therapy treatment that jump-starts acne clearing and helps prevent acne well beyond treatment. Or for just $25 try the Rapid Spot Clearing Microzone Treatment, which expedites the process of breakouts and helps skin recover from inflamed lesions while drying and clearing breakouts. In addition, the Dermalogica MediBac Clearing line, which was developed for acneic and breakout-prone skin, has numerous products to rid adults of acne.

Problem Areas:


While there is no real way to get rid of pesky cellulite, there are ways to reduce its appearance. Keeping problem areas hydrated with products such as the Dermalogica Body Hydrating Cream will help to improve your skin's tone. Also, minimize signs of unsightly veins and bruises by moisturizing daily with products infused with vitamin K.

Hands & Feet

Battle dry hands with a gentle hand cleanser that wont strip them of essential oils. Following a cleanser, Dermalogica's Multivitamn Hand and Nail Treatment from the Age Smart line will leave hands, cuticles and nails conditioned and soft.

No matter how stylish a pair of shoes are, or if they are on sale, wearing shoes that don't fit can have serious consequences! Wearing shoes too small can lead to painful corns, bunions and hammertoes. Massaging the soles of your feet at night with a hydrating cream such as Ultrarich Body Cream, will help to repair the dry skin as you sleep.

DBTS also offers natural hand and foot therapy complete with an exfoliating Dermalogica warming mask to diminish spots caused from sun damage and a relaxing pressure point massage.
