Medical professionals oversee beautiful transformations at Iuvenis Clinic, which is nestled away on the lush Salinas campus. Here, under the watchful eyes of Dr. Paul Francisco and registered nurse Christina Francisco, the technicians work to improve complexions with hydrafacials, Botox injections, and exfoliating microdermabrasions. They further rejuvenate faces with peels and IPL photofacials, which are designed to get rid of hyperpigmentation and sun spots, and they combat acne with the power of lasers, which are second to only magic. Arming their clients with the goods to treat themselves on their own, they offer at-home teeth-whitening kits and eyelash-boosting Latisse.
