Our experts provide professional, medically-based treatments with lasting results.

And what’s more relaxing than knowing your medically-based cosmetic treatments are safe and performed by licensed aestheticians with surgical precision? 

HydraFacial – Our #1 Treatment

A HydraFacial treatment at Skin Body Soul completely cares for your skin. HydraFacial is a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure that delivers instant results with zero discomfort or downtime. 

We deliver only the best results by combining cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, and hydration all while Vortex–Fusing (an advanced serum application process) antioxidants, peptides, and Hyaluronic acid. A Vortex Wand removes dead skin cells and impurities while simultaneously delivering moisturizing serums into the skin. HydraFacial has earned its place among the medspa community as one of the most popular ways to achieve that glow you’re looking for. 

IPL Photofacial

Photofacial therapy is a treatment that reduces or eliminates the signs of sun damage. OurIPL Photofacial is a laser treatment that helps to diminish the appearance of redness, light scars, broken capillaries, rosacea, and hyperpigmentation (sun spots) of your facial skin. This treatment improves the overall look and feel of your skin and also results in improved tone and texture. 

Get the silky, shiny glow you’re after to enhance your youthful appearance. Sun damage is an inevitable part of the aging process, especially if you’re living your best lake life in Des Moines, Ankeny, or Coralville. While the damage may have been done to your skin in the past, it doesn’t mean that we can’t restore some of that youthful feel and tone of your skin through IPL Photofacial. 

IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light. The laser device uses a non-ablative laser to deliver high-intensity pulses of light. It is carefully calibrated to detect specific skin pigments and then penetrates deep into your skin to correct the problem at its source. While this treatment is most commonly used on the face; your hands, neck, and chest can also be treated with IPL Photofacial – the most common areas where sun damage is most apparent.


Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure that involves pricking the skin with tiny sterilized needles. The small wounds cause your body to make more collagen and elastin, which heal your skin and help you look younger. You might also hear it referred to as collagen induction therapy.

As our skin ages, it becomes loose, thin, and less elastic. This is due to a reduction in fibroblasts, the building blocks of collagen proteins. The result is wrinkles, sagging, and a general dull appearance – just the opposite of the youthful glow that we desire!

Microneedling, medically referred to as Percutaneous Collagen Induction (PCI), is a simple, minimally invasive procedure that uses fine needles to stimulate your own body to produce new collagen. Fresh collagen rejuvenates your skin, improving texture and tightness, helping the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, scars, and stretchmarks, and correcting pigmentation variations and skin imperfections.


Dermaplaning is an exfoliating procedure of the outer skin layer. It removes fine vellus hair (peach fuzz) leaving a smoother, brighter, and more youthful appearance. In addition to removing peach fuzz, dermaplaning can help in reducing the appearance of acne scars or pitted skin. 

Because dermaplaning is a quick procedure with few to no adverse effects, it has quickly gained popularity among cosmetic medical providers across the country.

Using a scalpel and a delicate touch, our licensed and certified aestheticians simply abrade the surface of the skin using light feathering strokes. The exfoliation and hair removal can leave your skin brighter and smoother! The treatment may also soften fine lines and wrinkles and ease hyperpigmentation, or uneven skin tone. The best part about dermaplaning is that there’s no downtime!

Chemical peel 

Aging begins the moment we are born, and the passing years take a toll on our face in the form of lines, wrinkles, pigmented spots, acne, uneven texture, thinning, scarring, and sun damage. Each of these conditions makes the face look older, tired, and strained.

A Chemical Peel is a classic treatment used to improve and smooth the texture of the skin. Chemical Peels are intended to remove the outermost layers of the skin. To accomplish this task, the chosen peel solution induces a controlled injury to the skin.

Chemical Peels can restore your youthful and radiant appearance without burning or “down time.” What a time to be alive, where we can look and feel young again!
