Other skilled experts perform dermal-filler injections and cosmetic surgical procedures. Spa Trouve’s master aestheticians work with clients to develop customized skincare regimens using products such as SkinCeuticals, organic Lira Cosmeceuticals, SkinMedica, Obagi, and jane iredale mineral makeup.
