Gemcaly is a mineral-rich skincare line developed by Tracie Cardwell, an aquamarine miner on Mt. Antero in Central Colorado.

While mining for aquamarine, Tracie discovered the healing qualities of the surrounding clay, a rare earth deposit that is also an incredible resource for healthy skin.

As a licensed aesthetician, Tracie created a clay-based formula made of 33 different minerals that act as a multi-vitamin for the skin.

The minerals that make up Gemclay come from one of the world’s most pristine and unique rare-earth mineral deposits. This means that most of the minerals included in Gemclay products are unavailable in common markets or to the general public… until now.

Chemical Peels

Many life factors, including sun exposure, acne, or age, can leave your skin uneven, spotted, or scared. Smooth out imperfections with a chemical peel, which removes the damaged outer layers of your skin to improve tone and create a smoother complexion.

Chemical peels can reduce or improve:

  • Acne or acne scars

  • Age and liver spots

  • Fine lines and wrinkles

  • Rough skin

  • Sun-damaged skin

Please call for pricing and appointment.


Want smoother, healthier-looking skin but don't want to commit to a chemical peel? Then microdermabrasion is your answer.

Microdermabrasion is a simple, non-invasive procedure that smooths out fine wrinkles and lines, restores and evens skin tone and texture, decreases blotchiness, and stimulates collagen production. And with no down time, you can return to your normal routine as soon as you finish your treatment.
