Facile Dermatology – Vanessa Lee, RN, for a refreshed 2018 face

January 6, 2018

Nothing like a refreshed face for 2018. And hella yass, did I need it. Like so many of us, 2017 left me haggard, depressed and angry. I think I aged ten years. I needed a serious pick me up for my face (body and soul – working on SOUL with goddess meditation guide Kelly Morris of THE INFINITY CALL, more on her daily live mediation call in for women only, soon!! Can you say KELLY YOU ARE SAVING MY LIFE??!!!)

I headed over to the gorgeous little hide-away, Facile Dermatology where Vanessa, in less than 30 minutes, gave me a little overhaul. As you know, I am very natural (for someone who makes treatment plans and tries all the latest techniques). I look like your average mid-40’s working ass mother fucker. I am not fancy. I do not wear much make up. I keep it REAL AF. No fish lips. No chipmunk cheeks. No Beverly Hills housewife bullshit. 

Vanessa addressed my loss of volume and welp, falling cheeks. She added a little Voluma for the cheeks and Vollure for nasal labia folds and Botox, here and there. What a difference. Obvi. I am bat shit in love with the Voluma and Vollure. Mostly because I can’t even tell what she did. I just look….BETTER.

Vanessa finished with a microinfusion which basically is microneedling with with tiny deposits of a proprietary custom blend of botox, juverderm and super-antioxidants like glutathione that stimulates collagen to plump, tighten and brighten, shrinks pores, smooths for an instant glow with no downtime. THIS IS THE SHIT VON SHIT!!! This was the touch, I now realize, is everything. RUN AND GET THIS. STAT!

Facile Dermatology is one of my favorite spots in town.

I mean….look at it.

  
But that’s not all. Facile has you covered in so many ways…

THE PLANS LOOK SOMETHING LIKE THIS:

A TAILORED TREATMENT PLAN TO CLEAR YOUR COMPLEXION OF ACNE AND DARK SPOTS MAY INCLUDE:


  • CORTISONE INJECTIONS
    A quick prick with this powerful anti-inflammatory can dramatically reduce red, angry breakouts and hurry up healing—often immediately with cystic acne, in particular.
  • LASER THERAPY
    Think treatments like Clear + Brilliant, Fraxel or XLV.
  • FACIAL & BODY RESURFACING
    A.K.A. microneedling, it nudges skin to create new collagen and elastin fibers, which results in plumper, thicker skin and smoother scars and wrinkles.
  • CRYOFACIALS
    We add liquid nitrogen to your facial to treat what ails you: wrinkles, blemishes, pigmentation and sagging skin.
  • MICRO-INFUSIONS
    Micro-injections of botulinum toxin, filler droplets or PRP (platelet-rich plasma from your blood) will help shrink pores, improve fine lines and stimulate new collagen.

  • A CUSTOM SKINCARE REGIMEN
    Each plan is individualized and includes Facile clinical and prescription-strength products.
  • TOPICAL AND/OR ORAL PRESCRIPTIONS

A CUSTOM ANTI-AGING PROGRAM TO HELP YOUR SKIN AGE IN REVERSE MAY INCLUDE:


  • WRINKLE RELAXERS
    Safe doses of botulinum toxins help unkink muscles, leading to smoother skin free from furrows.
  • INJECTABLE FILLERS
    Hyaluronic acid and collagen-stimulating fillers will give you a lift and youthful smoothness.
  • KYBELLA
    Injections of deoxycholic acid, a fat-absorbing substance, help reduce pockets of localized fat like a double chin.
  • LASER THERAPY
    Think treatments like Clear + Brilliant, Fraxel or XLV.
  • FACIAL & BODY RESURFACING
    A.K.A. microneedling, it nudges skin to create new collagen and elastin fibers, which results in plumper, thicker skin and smoother scars and lines.
  • CRYOFACIALS
    We add liquid nitrogen to your facial to treat what ails you: wrinkles, pimples, hyperpigmentations and sagging.
  • MICROINFUSIONS
    Microinjections of botulinum toxin, filler droplets, or PRP (from your own blood) shrink pores, improve fine lines, and stimulate new collagen.
  • PEELS
    Customized chemical peels help reduce signs of sun damage and visible scars.
  • A CUSTOM SKINCARE REGIMEN
    Each plan is individualized and includes Facile clinical and prescription-strength products.

AN ADJUSTABLE, ONGOING PROGRAM TO KEEP YOUR SKIN HAPPY AND HEALTHY, FROM THE INSIDE OUT, MAY INCLUDE:


  • IV INFUSION & Vitamin INJECTION THERAPY
    A custom cocktail of vitamins supports increased energy, glowing skin, anti-aging at the cellular level, improved athlecit performance, healing and recovery, enhanced immunity, hydration and stress relief.

Larchmont Sanctuary Spa  

November 1, 2017

Wow, there’s a little piece of heaven right under our Larchmont noses. How exciting to discover this stunning little sanctuary. With a glorious menu of services, including a copper tub soak (heavennnnn and big enough for two). My tub soak was incredible and I need around ten more hours in it. I had an incredible deep tissue / hot stone massage with a top notch therapist. The spa is stunning, the staff is wonderful and it has the feel of being somewhere far from LA. I felt like I was up in Big Sur or Ojai. This is the perfect little getaway when you need a personal day. And of course, the perfect gift or couples retreat.
