What is a P.M.E?


P.M.E. stands for Paramedical Esthetician, a state board certified practitioner of the skin specializing in the treatment of acne, scarring, hyper-pigmentation, the effects of aging and the environment of the skin.




Why are your facials called "treatments"?


Corrective treatments are somewhat different than those provided at beauty salons or day spas. Our services are geared towards therapeutic treatments and acheiving results. In order to cut down costs and use time effectively, we do not provide facial massage, hand treatments or have you change into a gown, unless a back or chest treatment is necessary. A personalized treatment will be designed according to your specific condition. As with any therapy, there are no guarantees as to the outcome. Positive results depend on home care and regularity of treatments. To view our Menu of Services click here.




What is the cost of a treatment and necessary products?


Treatment prices start at $100. Topical medicationand skincare product prices range from $6 to $70 per item. Treatments & home routines for the medications applicable to your needs will be fully described and explained during your first appointment.




Do you accept insurance?


Unfortunately, most insurance companies do not cover therapy for acne or problem skin treated by a Paramedical Esthetician.




What types of payment do you accept?


We currently accept Visa, Mastercard, and American Express payments. Payments are due upon services rendered.




What if I need to cancel my appointment?


  • Let us know you need to cancel 24hrs+ before your appointment and there will be no penalty.
  • Let us know within 24 hours and the penalty is only $50.
  • No show? No call or email? You'll be charged 100% of your service scheduled.

We love ample notice so we can accommodate those on our waiting list. It's just good karma! And we want to help! So as a courtesy, we will:

  1. Send you an email to confirm you made the appointment.
  2. Send out an email to confirm your appointment two days prior to your appointment date.
  3. Shoot you a text one day prior AND
  4. We’ll personally call you the day before your appointment date to remind you.




What makes Corrective Skincare different than an average spa?
