Vixen Aesthetics harnesses high-tech laser light to help smooth wrinkled skin and erase time-created blemishes. The Pixel Perfect laser treatment jumpstarts the body's self-repair system by targeting water in the skin, causing the body to up its production of skin-firming collagen, ironing out wrinkles, lightening scars, and leaving faces full enough to make the crescent moon sigh with envy. During a consultation before the procedure, laser specialists help patients decide whether to treat the whole face in one aggressive session, or to split the procedure into two milder treatments. Alternatively, IPL photofacial treatments target broken capillaries and sun spots with high-frequency light, ridding faces of unwanted discoloration and blemishes in the shape of Eastern European countries.
Patients awaiting treatments in Vixen Aesthetics’ lobby sink into zebra-print seats beneath green walls festooned by black-and-white fashion photography. Inside individual treatment rooms, soft lighting and potted plants cultivate a homey feel while Japanese rice-paper folding screens shield patients from the prying eyes of snooping squirrel paparazzi.
Vixen Aesthetics arose from a passion for healing people and caring for skin. Medical director Dr. Jerry Greib developed an interest in aesthetics while treating patients in the emergency room. Leann Griffin, a registered nurse and the CEO of Vixen, fueled her passion for skin rejuvenation after caring for patients in the critical-care and burn-intensive-care units. Together, these two helm a staff that beautifies clients with medical and nonmedical aesthetic procedures. Wrinkles relax after injections of Botox or Dysport, and facial fillers such as Artefill, Restylane, and Juvéderm work to restore fullness. The staff rejuvenates complexions with exfoliating microdermabrasions as well as more advanced treatments, such as carboxytherapy—the practice of injecting small amounts of carbon dioxide into the skin to improve the appearance of stretch marks, scars, and lingering marker mustaches. With the assistance of versatile laser systems, they can also remove hair, resurface skin, remove tattoos, and eradicate nail fungus.
