Listed in Southern California's Super Doctors, Fresh Face Med Spa and its staff of certified professionals, including a licensed aesthetician, a registered nurse, and the 2007 Chief of Staff at Methodist Hospital of Southern California, resuscitates weary faces with personalized skincare services. The 30-minute express SilkPeel provides microdermabrasion without exposure to aluminum oxide crystals. Diamond-tipped dermalinfusion exfoliates, stimulates, and hydrates skin to help with acne, wrinkles, melty face, and sun damage. The 60-minute procedure combines the peel with deep cleansing, a preparatory gentle peel, facial massage, and finishing mask. Both treatments include Visia Skin Analysis, which uses a computer program to unearth damage unseen by the unclothed eye. Clients come face-to-own-face with covert wrinkles, pores, bacteria, and UV spots fueled by overexposure to the sun and living inside a volcano. Based on the results of the analysis, Fresh Face professionals will recommend treatment, answer questions, and sign a copy as a souvenir.
