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.
  • PEELS
    Customized chemical peels to reduce breakouts and minimize the appereance of visible scars.
  • 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.
  • VITAMINS & HEALTH SUPPLEMENTS
    A custom cocktail of take-home supplements in-office IV and vitamin therapies.
  • A NUTRITIONIST-RECOMMENDED DIET
  • A SKIN CANCER SCREENING EXAM
    The doctor checks for suspicious spots and removes anything questionable or bothersome.
  • A CUSTOM SKINCARE REGIMEN
    Each plan is individualized and includes Facile clinical and prescription-strength products.

Is Xeomin Better Than Botox?

January 3, 2018

It’s 2018. Another year, another wrinkle. OY.

Maybe you’ve built up a sensitivity to Botox? Maybe you’re a dude and feel funky about getting Botox, but wouldn’t mind trying a ‘natural facial muscle relaxer’ – so to speak.

Welp, more and more people are checking out Xeomin.

So, what’s XEOMIN®?

Well, like Botox, it’s a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) in adults for a short period of time (temporary).  In other words, it takes those awful “11’s” away. 

The main difference between Xeomin and Botox is that Xeomin contains just one ingredient: botulinum toxin A.

Xeomin is the only one of the three (Xeomin, Botox and Dysport) injectables that does not need to be refrigerated before use, due to its lack of additives. Xeomin is a “naked injectable,” meaning that it does not contain any additives.

A benefit of a pure-form injectable is that the human body is less likely to become resistant to it. Some patients have developed antibodies to Botox which means…it no longer works! 

This is a great way to go for dudes (something about it seems more natural and it’s often marketed like that) and for first timers who are Botox curious.

XEOMIN® is available only through licensed physicians like:

The Master Aesthetician Behind Lada Gaga’s Flawless Skin

November 15, 2017

When I first got wind about Joomee Song, I knew one thing – I HAD TO MEET HER. Something told me, this is a woman I need to know, and to share with you all. And wow, was I right. First off, besides running her private studio, www.faceworksinc.com, Joomee is a core member of Lady Gaga’s glam team. In other words, if you are wondering how and why Gaga’s skin is the most stunning thing you have laid eyes on, we have Joomee to thank for getting and keeping her on track.

Besides being a straight up aesthetician with over 20 years in the biz, she is also the creator of an incredible lymph-draining, massage technique, called Kaika. In most simple terms it is a signature style of facial massage that uses Shiatsu and acupressure to lift and tone the skin but it really is so much more. Joomee tunes in, reads your face, your energy and what it is calling for – so to speak. She is so tuned it, that it becomes an energetic experience.

Her incredible session combines effective elements of Eastern and Western skin care and of course each treatment is tailored to your needs. She also uses the latest equipment in tandem with carefully hand selected, only botanical products and will guide you through after care to help you sustain your healthy glow.

MY SESSION was phenomenal. I totally melted into Joomee’s hands and energy. I could feel my lymph glands draining as she worked. Days later, I am still glowing. I loved the feeling of the work around my eye sockets. It was deep and profound. And welp, miserable when it came to an end. I wanted her to NEVER STOP using her magic fingers to release my facial tension (which I have tons of). If this isn’t enough, Joomee is a LOVE, like a really, delicious love who you will now want to spend every day with.

Originally from Kobe, Japan, Joomee Song is a Los Angeles-based Esthetician sought out for her modern approach to skincare that combines botanical products, the latest technology, and her unique facial massage technique,KAIKA.

Drawing from her training since 1999 in the US and in Japan including certifications in Kobido, a Japanese facial massage dating back to 1472 that lifts, tones, and detoxifies the skin, and Japanese Facial Symmetry Method, a chiropractic Shiatsu movement to realign facial structure that incorporates acupressure and lymphatic drainage, Joomee developed KAIKA as a way to fuse Eastern and Western skincare philosophies to deliver healthy, glowing skin.

Relaxing and therapeutic, every treatment is tailored to the individual addressing any acne, anti-aging, preventative, reactive, or any other skincare concerns there may be.

Prior to launching her private practice, Joomee was part of some of the West Coast’s most elite medical spas and luxury hotels including Hotel Bel Air, Beverly Hills Hotels, The Langham Pasadena. She has been featured on Daily Candy, LA times, US Magazine, Extra TV, Access Hollywood,  and The Doctors.

The prices are $175 for 50 minutes  $250 for 75 minutes at the studio. Please contact Joomee directly for pricing inquiries regarding house calls, which she makes.
