Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Purcell Sr "Whether you re thinking about getting a medical-grade facial, injectable fillers, or perhaps a cosmetic procedure, chances are you will be going to a medical spa to do it. Capital Skin a hybrid of a medical office and a day spa operated under a physician s license and care. With treatments and products that are stronger, more involved, medical-grade and physician-strength, Capital Skin Medical Spa is primarily about dramatic visible results and secondarily about relaxing and pampering treatments. At Capital Skin, we effectively combine the two, offering medical treatments in a spa-like environment."

Not only was I mislead about how much their services cost, it was a waste of our money. Had to seek treatment elsewhere for improvement.
