Korean Hydra-dermabrasion

Ever heard of Hydrafacial MD? This is similar but comes from the world skin and beauty capital of Korea! This treatment utilizes liquid microdermabrasion and a gentle peel without downtime! Extractions are done painlessly with the machine by flushing out pores and gentle suction. At the end, active Korean serums are infused deep within the skin using a liquid vortex technology and "electroporation", followed by a high performance soothing Meta Skincare Transformation Mask. This is the one of the most sought after technologies in skincare today!

K-Beauty Professional Treatments

The most advanced Skincare Treatments and advances in the world are developed in Korea for several reasons.  They have the highest rate of plastic surgery in the world, therefor they have the most money going into research and development of skin treatment and advances.  Even the South Korean government is now investing millions in research and development of skin.

  The Koreans have found better results in non-invasive skin transforming treatments, that prioritize maintaining the health of the skin and its barrier, while stimulating collagen and elastin and brightening using cutting edge delivery systems and ingredients. These treatments are extremely advanced and allow for incredible transformative results with out down time.   

At Meta Skincare, we customize these treatments to each client's need when we see them in office.

Human Stem Cell Infusion

A unique anti-aging skin serum combining adult human conditioned stem cells, potent antioxidants, peptides, and other innovative anti-aging ingredients to regenerate and heal your skin. This all-in-one anti-aging infusion improves the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and the overall tone and texture of skin. Human stem cells are far more effective than plant stem cells for anti-aging and can be added to the Hydraderm facial to boost results.

Ultrasonic Exfoliation Tool

This tool works by creating oscillations at ultrasonic speeds, leaving skin silky smooth, fresh, and perfectly prepared for product application. Then it utilizes polar-electric currents to dilate pores for easier extractions, then tightens them back up and infuses products.

High Frequency

This technology has been around a very long time, as Nicholas Tesla discovered it! Only in recent times though has it been refined into a device used for skin care purposes. This tool uses electricity to create pure ozone when its current is grounded to the skin. This ozone kills bacteria at skin level and calms redness and inflammation.


Micro-current is a therapeutic treatment that delivers painless, low-level electrical impulses to strategic locations under the skin to firm and tone the facial muscles for immediate and long-term results. This technology simultaneously repairs collagen in the dermis (the deepest layer of the skin), while gently erasing signs of aging in the epidermis (the top layer of skin). As we age, our electrical impulses slow down causing aging and sagging facial skin. Microcurrent works in harmony with the natural bio-electrical currents naturally found in our bodies to help speed up the cellular regenerative process resulting in firmer, healthier, more youthful looking skin.


Dermafiles™ are very effective tools for treating aging and sun damaged skin, scars, acne scarring, pigmentation, stretch marks, fine lines and enlarged and clogged pores. They are made of surgical stainless steel and a crushed cosmetic diamond tip. These files are gently used in nearly every Meta Skin Studio treatment to create a silky and perfected texture of the skin.

LED Light Therapy

Oh Light Emitting Diode, how I love thee!!!!!! LED light therapy is similar to lasers in that as they can emit the same light but differ in the way that the light energy is delivered. Lasers are focused-beam single-wavelength light emitters that can be intense enough (a ‘hot’ laser) to burn/cut tissue or ‘cold’ enough to freeze the skin. LEDs do not deliver enough power to damage the tissue, but they do deliver enough energy to promote skin regeneration and wound healing.

Blue LED kills P. acne bacteria and is used in all of Meta’s acne services. RED LED is anti-aging and anti-inflammatory. It speeds recovery time from invasive medical services and is also FDA approved for pain management.
