Registered nurse Vala DiCarlo draws on more than 15 years experience in the medical field to enhance skin’s health and aesthetic appeal. This clinical background makes her particular about the products she chooses to integrate into her custom facial treatments. Using professional-grade solutions from 302 Professional Skincare and Le Mieux, she erases built-up years with treatments including ultrasonic facials that deliver anti-aging serums deep into the skin’s inner layers. She also treats acne with infusions of green tea, chamomile, and sulfur, or reduces hyperpigmentation with the rejuvenation facial’s glycolic exfoliation. She doesn’t leave sensitive skin to fend for itself, but instead soothes it with a specially calibrated facial that includes exfoliating spray and all-natural, fragrance-free products.
