“There are so many products that I love, it’s hard to choose just one! The multi-tasker and holistic minded practitioner in me must highlight one of my very favorite serums, Biopelle XCP Brightening Serum. This paraben free, eight ingredient serum contains two key ingredients: Vitamin C, which repairs and protects against sun damage, and Phytic Acid, a naturally-derived acid which brightens the complexion.  Green tea and grapeseed extracts help to prevent future discoloration from developing. All that in just a few drops each morning? I’m sold!”


“My favorite procedures to receive are our Dermapeel facial and tissue tightening procedure. Both provide me with the satisfaction of knowing that I am one step ahead and working to prevent the aging process. I love how complimentary these procedures are: tissue tightening works on the tone and quality of the deeper layers of my skin while the dermapeel focuses on the superficial sun damage. My favorite procedures to provide include any type of injectable, like neuromodulators and dermal fillers. Each patient presents a new and exciting challenge, and I am so grateful for the opportunity to do what I love!”
