PRP Facials with Micro-Needling
PRP ( Platelet Rich Plasma) is a natural product created from your own body. A small amount of blood is drawn from you and placed in a sterile tube that is spun down in a centrifuge to separate the different components of the blood.
PRP stimulates your own collagen to grow for total facial rejuvenation rather than individual wrinkle improvement. PRP is used for volumizing faces that are beginning to look drawn, to plump out cheek indentations, soften under eye hollows, improve the skin tone, tightness, and texture, and fill in areas where hyaluronic acid fillers cannot reach or are not safe to use.
After the application of a numbing cream, small holes are created using very fine, small needles. The creation of micro-holes kicks the skin into healing mode, where it rushes to make more collagen. This helps fade scars and smooth pockmarks caused by acne, prevents fine lines from deepening, and gives skin a level of radiance often reserved for only the most deep-pocketed of beauty slaves.
In this instance, Beauty doesn't require pain.
PhotoFacials - IPL
PhotoFacial means an IPL (Intense Pulse Light) treatment at a medical spa. An IPL photofacial can treat a variety of skin conditions such as brown spots, broken capillaries, spider veins, and facial redness. An IPL photofacial delivers a bright blast of light at very high energy levels through a hand-held device.
An IPL photo facial is a good choice if you have a number of different goals: plumper, younger-looking skin, faded brown spots, fewer broken capillaries, and less overall redness, called diffused facial redness.

BOTOX® Cosmetic is the only approved treatment to temporarily improve the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet lines in adults.
Fillers- (Restylane -L, Restylane Silk, Restylane Lyft, Juvederm, Voluma)
As we age our skin loses its elasticity and plumpness. This causes the skin to sag and wrinkle. Dermal fillers plump the skin back up, naturally lifting lines and wrinkles to create a natural, healthy, younger-looking skin.
Nearly 50 million Americans suffer from acne—a staggering 95% of all people experiencing acne at some point in their lives*
As the most common skin condition in the U.S., acne is caused when hair follicles become clogged with oil and dead skin cells. While it’s a common rite of passage in adolescence, acne can also become persistent and unsightly, affecting millions of adults — both physically and emotionally.
If the body produces too much or too little melanin, it can cause brown spots, sun spots, moles, melasma, or other skin patches that appear lighter or darker than normal. Some people address pigmentation concerns with medicines and creams, while others are seeking treatments for more dramatic results.
Candela Gentle YAG Laser
For dark skin
How it works: The Nd: YAG Laser is the preferred system when it comes to hair removal for dark skin because it has weaker melanin absorption. Melanin refers to the dark pigment in both skin and hair, and some lasers cannot tell the difference between the melanin in the hair and the melanin in dark skin. This means they have the potential to injure the skin. The Nd: YAG laser, on the other hand, is safe for dark skin because of its long wavelengths, which penetrate past the melanin in the epidermis to the melanin in the hair. This seeking out of dark melanin is why, like most of the lasers on this list, it is still not very effective on fine or white hair.
Pros: The Nd: YAG has longer wavelengths than other hair-removing lasers, meaning that in addition to being safe for dark skin, it has the most potential to destroy hair at the papilla (the very bottom of the shaft).
Cons: Because it absorbs less melanin, it requires more treatments for optimal results. Treatments with YAG lasers can also be more painful and less effective on fine hair.
