Girl dreaming of better skin in 2018

Better skin in 2018? We can help you keep this resolution!

New Year’s resolutions are top of mind for everyone. Gyms are packed with people striving to exercise more. People are putting healthier options on their plate. But what are you doing to get better skin in 2018?

Eating better and moving more will definitely improve how you look and feel. But sometimes you need a little extra help, especially with things like acne, scarring, hair loss, and wrinkles. If you’ve resolved to get your skin in better shape, we can help.

This past year we introduced some amazing new services that have made improvements in our clients’ lives and can help you achieve better skin in 2018:


What is it?

A device with fine needles penetrates the skin to create a controlled skin injury, inducing the wound healing process. This stimulates collagen and elastin production, eliminating damaged skin and revealing healthy, firmer skin.

What does it improve?

  • Acne (severe cases treated in combination with Laser/BBL)
  • Large pores
  • Milia (white heads)
  • Stretch marks
  • Scars
  • Rosacea
  • Melasma (“pregnancy mask”-brown spots)
  • Sagging skin
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Hard to treat with laser areas, like wrinkles around eyes or mouth
  • Sagging upper and/or lower eyelids
  • Vitiligo (loss of skin color)
  • Hyperpigmentation on lower legs (darkening of skin) due to vein insufficiency and/or erysipelas (bacterial infection of skin)

BBL (Corrective and Forever Young)

What is it?

BBL (Broadband Light) is similar to IPL (Intense Pulsed Light), a high-powered, handheld, computer-controlled flashgun, which delivers an intense, visible, broad-spectrum pulse of light. BBL is safer, provides more consistent results, and is more customizable to each client than any other IPL machine.

BBL corrective treatments are similar to IPL (Intense Pulsed Light), but more powerful and require fewer treatments. For example, when treating solar lentigines (sun spots), fewer BBL sessions are required, compared with IPL treatment.

Forever Young BBL treatments actually include two treatments in one session. BBL corrective targets age/sun spots and vascular lesions, and SkinTyte, an additional filter on the same device that uses a different part on the light sector, increases the temperature of the skin. This produces new collagen, developing younger, tighter skin.

What does it improve?

  • Fine lines
  • Solar lentigines (age spots, liver spots, sun spots)
  • Acne
  • Freckles
  • Pigmented lesions
  • Rosacea
  • Poikiloderma (neck and chest redness)
  • Small Visible blood vessels on face
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Melasma (brown patches on face)
  • Loose skin (with SkinTyte/Forever Young)
  • Large pores

PRP/Vampire Facial

What is it?

The actual medical term for the Vampire Facial is PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) procedure. It involves withdrawing the client’s blood, separating the plasma from the red blood cells, and then separating PRP from plasma. We may use PRP alone OR by combining PRP with HA fillers, like Restylane, to increase the effectiveness of treatment and create double the benefit. The centrifuged PRP (with or without fillers) is then injected back into your body with very thin needles, into the areas you need it most.

The treatment stimulates your skin cells to produce more collagen, creating a more youthful appearance and even skin ton/texture. PRP has been shown to have beneficial effects when combined with almost any other aesthetic treatment, like Botox, laser, fillers, Sculptra, and microneedling. In fact, they enhance each other!

What does it improve?

  • Aging skin
  • Fine lines
  • Pigmentation
  • Acne scars(one of the best treatment for it)
  • Skin laxity
  • Skin texture
  • Hair loss
  • Thin hair
  • Volume loss on face and hands
  • Rosacea
