Under the watchful eye of medical director Dr. Annika Crosby, the trained staff of PSS MedSpa come to the aid of clients with ailing complexions, aging skin, and unwanted hair or varicose veins with a combination of laser and aesthetic treatments. The team draws upon an arsenal of lasers that can be finely tuned to gently treat the delicate lines surrounding eyes or powerful rays that stop hair production in the follicles. The spa also utilizes high-quality products from brands such as SkinCeuticals, Eminence, and Colorescience Pro, blending the latest skin science with all-natural ingredients to keep skin soft, complexions clear, and signs of aging at bay. The staff can also outfit newly refined faces with a selection of retail mineral makeup and waxing treatments that create skin as flawless as the skin skeletons dream about.
Licensed phlebologist Kamran Afzal oversees a trained staff that snoops and snuffs out rogue veins by means of either injection or laser treatment. During a 30-minute cosmetic sclerotherapy session, an ultrasound locates defective ducts and an injection (a maximum of 10cc of medicine) sends them to their doom, closing varicose veins to ease discomfort in the legs. During an EVLT treatment, a high-powered laser heats cursive veins from the inside, smoothing and shrinking them into a mild sans serif font. Both treatments eschew more invasive techniques and send patients home with no downtime. Although this deal is valid for a single session on one leg, a second Groupon may be purchased for an additional treatment on the same or one of the patient's other legs.
Before switching on lasers or breaking out the chemical peels, the certified laser technicians and nurses at Gr8Skin MedSpa take a close look at their clients’ skin and work to figure out the best correct treatment plan. Visia complexion analysis relies on digital photography to evaluate pores, pigmentation, wrinkles, and patches of skin that turn out to be CGI. Following the complimentary consultation, experts get to work fading wrinkles with Botox injectables, reducing rosacea using elos technology, and disappearing unruly hairs with a laser. Additionally, the staff shows its support of breast-cancer research by offering patients and survivors a complimentary facial.
