Are you bothered by a double chin?
Kybella is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that destroys those fat cells…permanently! Whether it’s unwanted fat under the chin, armpit, or belly, Kybella truly is your miracle shot. From the makers of Botox, Latisse, and Juvederm it is the first ever fat-eliminating injectable treatment.
How Does it Work?
Kybella is a nonsurgical injectable technique used to target the fat beneath the chin, or other areas. The process uses a series of deoxycholic acid injections to target the fat cells in that area. When injected into subcutaneous fat it causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat anymore. No incisions are required, and the downtime is minimal. If you can pinch it, we can most likely treat it.
Swelling and bruising may occur immediately after a Kybella treatment and last for several days. Over the following month the Kybella is working to dissolve the fat and may feel firm. Once the fat is dissolved, your body will naturally absorb the fat cells. Now is the perfect time for this treatment given we can hide the swelling behind a mask! Results may vary and anywhere from 1-4 treatments may be necessary for optimal results.
Did You Know?
•Kybella is quit popular with celebrities. Khloe Kardashian among others love this treatment!
•Allergan is the parent-company of Kybella, so you can earn and use Allē (formally called Brilliant Distinctions) points with every treatment!
•We offer complimentary consultations!
Say goodbye to that double chin or stubborn belly fat…forever!

When thinking of PRF, three words come to mind…refresh, rejuvenate, restore. Not only is PRF itself natural, it also provides natural looking-results! We love being able to offer this revolutionary new treatment to our clients.
What is PRF?
PRF (platelet-rich fibrin), is the next generation treatment of platelet concentrate, more advanced than PRP.
Often referred to as “liquid gold,” this treatment requires nothing “foreign” to be injected into the body because it uses your own blood products to stimulate youth using your own growth factors. PRF is a fibrin matrix comprised of platelet cytokines, growth factors and cells used to help promote skin rejuvenation, hair growth and wound healing. This all-natural solution is used to treat areas that show signs of aging such as: under eyes, cheeks, lips and scalp.
Not a candidate for Botox and filler? PRF is your answer. Do you desire natural and gradual results? Then you are a great candidate for this treatment.
How does it work?
PRF treatments start by drawing a sample of your blood and processing it through a centrifuge to isolate the PRF. Then, the PRF is injected into the desired area, providing all of those amazing healing properties found in the fibrin. A lot of the data on PRF comes from orthopedic and dental applications, it is new to the med spa scene. It provides a lot of benefits and produces amazing results!
PRF can improve existing youthful fat, reduce appearance of dark circles and stimulate healthy skin. It can regrow hair, fill in hollowing, plump up lips and gives a much more natural look than filler. We never want you to look frozen or fake. Our goal is for our clients’ to leave our spa looking like themselves, only younger and refreshed!
It takes around four to six weeks for the restorative healing to take place. For under-eye treatments, we usually recommend three treatments. The results of PRF are truly impressive, especially when added to micro-needling. The combination improves the texture of your skin while also building up collagen underneath.

Summer is gone and the holidays are approaching. Now is the perfect time for an IPL treatment!
We love summer but unfortunately, our skin does not. IPL therapy can undo the damage that the sun has caused. Treatments cannot be done over recently tanned skin so fall is an ideal time for it. Head into the holidays with brighter, younger looking skin!
What Is IPL?
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy, aka photofacial, is a way to improve the color and texture of your skin. IPL treats the skin with quick and powerful flashes of light. This treatment helps restore the skin’s youthful glow by treating the unwanted “reds” and “browns” that dull the complexion, improving overall tone and texture, and minimizing pore size for overall brighter skin! You can use IPL anywhere on your body. The most common areas are the face, neck, chest, shoulders & hands.
How IPL Works
IPL uses light energy to target a certain color in your skin. When the skin is heated, your body gets rid of the unwanted cells. Unlike lasers, the IPL device sends out multiple wavelengths of pulsating light and can treat a variety of skin conditions at the same time.
On a biological level the wavelength spectrum used in IPL targets the tiny pockets of undesirable pigment in the skin. The hemoglobin (red) and melanin (brown) in these pockets absorbs the light, causing them to heat up and fragment, becoming waste or dead cells. Then the skins own specialized cells known as “phagocytes”, mobilize to remove this waste and the dead cells, revealing a clearer and more youthful complexion.
IPL is used to treat:
Photoaging | Sun Damage | Rosacea | Spider Veins | Acne Scaring | Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation | Skin Tone | Skin Texture | Overall Complexion
Treatment & Results
The treatment lasts approximately 30 minutes and involves only minimal discomfort. Some patients experience redness and swelling post-treatment, but this resolves quickly. You will also notice that any dark spots will get darker, they almost look like small coffee grounds on the skin. They are subtle and will flake off after about 7-14 days. The benefits of the treatment are most often seen gradually in the weeks following the procedure.
There is no recovery time required for IPL and clients can immediately resume their normal daily activities post-treatment. IPL therapy can give you excellent results for up to a year!
Our medical aestheticians will customize a treatment plan specifically for your skin type, concerns and goals!
Single sessions and packages are available. For best results, we recommend a series of three treatments.

Not long ago when we heard the word “face mask” we thought of good skin. We thought of skincare masks that are used to help clear our complexion. Now, you probably think of a medical mask. Unfortunately, this type of face mask is not the best for your skin and is causing some to experience “maskne” aka mask acne.
What Is Maskne? How Does It Occur?
The scientific term is “acne mechanica,” meaning the mechanical friction of the mask fabric rubbing against your skin is causing breakouts. It can cause pimples, redness, or irritation around your mouth, cheeks, and jawline. The mask traps sweat, skin oils, and bacteria on the skin which can also cause acne.
•Wash your face regularly- before & after wearing your mask
•Wear less makeup- breakup with your makeup, at least temporarily. If this is hard for you, go for a tinted moisturizer with sunscreen. (EltaMD Skincare)
•Choose a soft, cotton mask if possible & keep it clean- wash masks often
Treat Maskne With ZO SKIN HEALTH:
•Exfoliate (ZO exfoliating polish)
•Use medical grade cleansers (ZO gentle cleanser)
•Retinal (ZO retinal skin brightener)
•Try our ZO Skin Health Acne Prevention & Treatment Program bundle!
All products listed may be purchased in-store or online. Shop Now!
Maskne is worse during the summer months due to the increased oil production. It is essential that you keep up with regular spa treatments. This is the best way to maintain healthy skin. Call now for a complimentary consultation! 215.622.7724

EndyMed Intensif: Combining Microneedling and RF for Superior Results!
The EndyMed Intensif RF Microneedle system is designed to help rejuvenate skin by improving tone and texture while also tightening. This treatment will reduce the appearance of wrinkles, acne and scars.
It is minimally invasive w/ little-to-no downtime!
Combining Microneedling with RF
EndyMed Intensif combines microneedling with radio frequency for a more intense rejuvenating effect. Microneedling is great for remodeling the texture of our skin, it helps with acne scaring, fine lines and it stimulates collegan to improve texture. In addition to the benefits seen with the micro-injury provided by the traditional microneedles, RF microneedling also delivers RF energy deep into the dermis further enhancing skin tightening and scar reduction. This treatment provides results from the outside in and also the inside out!
If you’ve had traditional microneedling and loved it, this is the next level to get you faster and better results! It’s a great option for skin that may not be able to use laser treatments. It is also beneficial for those who have oily skin. EndyMed Intensif can treat everything from wrinkles and stretch marks to acne scars and loose skin. It takes about 7 days for the results to start to appear as the skin has to go through the healing phase. While each person’s experience will be different, studies have shown that results typically last up to a year after the most recent Intensif RF Microneedle treatment!
EndyMed offers superior tightening, contouring, fractional resurfacing and RF microneedling treatments, clinically proven to deliver the best results!
We offer complimentary consultations so you can find out what EndyMed Intensif can do for you! 215.622.7724
