Pumpkins aren’t just beneficial for your taste buds…they are REALLY good for your Skin too. Apart from being the most popular latte at Starbucks and of course carved out lanterns for Halloween, it’s pumpkin season 🎃 and we couldn’t be more excited! The smell, taste and decor of pumpkin is literally everywhere! But besides tasting delicious and smelling wonderful; did you know that pumpkin is a great antioxidant for your skin. In fact, pumpkin has over 100 nutrients in it that can help restore and heal your skin!  



 Did you know that pumpkin is such a powerful source of antioxidants that it: 

  • Boosts your collagen 
  • Brightens your skin 
  • Increases cell turnover 
  • Reduces pore size 
  • Smooths out the texture 


It’s true! And with the fall season already upon us the weather is becoming a bit chilly. Okay, so not so chilly in deep South Texas, but we will start to notice a drop in temperature soon, and our skin does change with the seasons. As we start to get drier weather you may notice that your skin may start to feel a bit on the dry side, but you can give your skin a treat and refresh its natural glow by using one of the most popular fruit  of the season (…thanks StarBucks ☕️).  



Have you ever wondered what makes pumpkin pie so orange? It is the miracle antioxidant, beta-carotene, that converts to Vitamin A which plays a gigantic role in your having good health and great skin.  

The beta-carotene in the pumpkin is what gives it that red-orange color which makes it look so nice in the fall. But besides enhancing color, beta-carotene is also a natural enzyme. The powerful anti-oxidant pack a double punch because it helps to boost your immune system when consumed internally, but also reduces oxygen damage to cells brought on by free radicals and other toxins, which helps boost collagen production and reduces signs of aging.   

Pumpkin is packed with fruit enzymes and alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), which increase cell turnover- shedding away dead skin cells- which in turn brighten and smooth the skin. Vitamin A and Vitamin C are also found in pumpkin, and these nutrients will help soften rough skin texture, soothe the skin, and brighten the skin giving it that natural glow we all desire.  

The zinc found in pumpkin can naturally protect your skin from the ultra violet rays (UVA’s),  reduce your pore size and help make your skin look more refined.  Zinc regulates excessive sebum, an oil production which helps to reduce acne in the skin.  



Ok, so maybe a pumpkin spice latte from your favorite coffee shop won’t renew and refresh your skin, but a pumpkin facial can. Revive your dry summer skin with our fall facial to help tighten and firm your skin. Show off a more rejuvenated and brighter skin as well as renew your naturalr glow for the season. Those with sensitive skin will be able to tolerate a pumpkin peel because it is not too intrusive. Clarity and skin smoothness will be seen immediately following a pumpkin facial.  Anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits are also seen through a pumpkin facial. This treatment includes a fall skin analysis, pumpkin antioxidant facial,  skin nourishing booster, and a LED anti-aging light treatment.  

Infrared LED light therapy can reverse and control the visible signs of aging and help you look years younger without invasive surgical procedures. Tightening of the skin, smoothing out wrinkles and rough spots, minimize the disappearance of blemishes, softening of redness, and shrinking of pore size can be achieved with this natural light treatment.  

Adding an LED treatment to this pumpkin facial will help you acheive younger looking and smoother more rejuvenated  skin. Better than any pumpkin spiced latte! Ok, maybe not, but then afterwards you can treat yourself to a latte on us! 

To get perfectly glowing skin this month check out this powerful facial we curated for the season.

Modern Dermal Fillers

Fillers used for correcting facial imperfections have been around since the late 1800’s. Augmenting the face with different mediums such as body fat, paraffin wax, petroleum jelly, silicone, and animal collagen have all been experimented with, yet produced unfavorable long-term results. Development of conditions like granuloma (a mass of granular tissue) from these mediums pushed researchers to look for safer, more effective alternatives.

Today we have the safest, longest lasting, synthetic fillers available like Juvéderm (hyaluronic acid). Whats more, the type of filler is not the only part of the process that has improved. In the past doctors have looked at loss of volume and wrinkles in isolation – targeting the area alone and many times producing unwanted results like puffiness, bull-dog jowls, and too much volume, making the face look disproportionate. New techniques like anatomic filling have proved to be much more effective.

What is anatomic filling?

Let’s take the example of sagging skin around the mouth and jowls. Looking at the facial structure and understanding where the skin began to lose its elasticity then targeting those areas. By using a filler like Juvéderm Voluma (a gel filler formulated for deep injection and volume) to fill in the cheeks, the skin is then lifted up, diminishing the laugh lines and tightening the skin around the mouth and chin. Kind of like a face-lift. The patient now has a more youthful look while also correcting the issues around the mouth and jowls. This technique can be applied to other areas of the face in a similar manor.

Where else can I use filler?

Fillers are now also designed for different areas of the face with different effects. Special formulations allow your doctor to treat fine lines, deep lines, loss of volume, thin lips, and even eye troughs, eliminating sunken dark eye circles!


The JUVÉDERM family of dermal fillers has you covered and Beautique Medical Spa is highly trained and experienced to administer them. With the most advanced technology and modern formulations, your aesthetic goals are more achievable than ever.


The most important step in the journey to utilizing fillers to treat aging and sagging facial skin is to find a highly trained and knowledgeable doctor. Dr. Sanchez at Beautique Medical spa has served clients just like you for over 15 years.

10 Important Facts About Collagen

10 Facts You Probably Didn’t Know About Collagen…the Glue that Holds Your Body Together and How the More Collagen You Have, The Younger You Look!

We hear about collagen all the time, from supplements to anti-aging. There are very good reasons why collagen is important to our bodies and vital to our beauty. Collagen is essentially the glue that holds our bodies together. It gives our ligaments movement, our skin strength, and protects our organs. To help our clients understand how our body’s natural glue works, we have created a list of fun and interesting facts about collagen and why it is so amazing.


10 Things About Collagen You Probably Didn’t Know

  1. Collagen is a naturally occurring protein produced in our bodies. It is found in our skin, bones, muscles, and more. Collagen can be derived from animals but for cosmetic use a safer synthetic collagen is used. Our bodies accept this synthetic collagen very well.
  2. Collagen makes up 1/3 of our bodies and a whopping 70% of our skin cells. Moisturize!
  3. The skins elasticity and strength are attributed to collagen. This is because collagen is essentially the “scaffolding” that holds all of our skin’s layers together.
  4. Cell turnover can stimulate collagen production. Cell turnover happens when the skin is damaged or irritated and it wants to heal itself. It does this by shedding dead skin cells quicker and replacing it with new skin cells. Collagen is an important part of this process. That is why treatments like facials and light therapy stimulate collagen production and newer smoother skin.
  5. Collagen fibrils are stronger than steel! A collagen fibril is small slender fiber and collagen bundles up in these fibrils to create structure and aid the elastin. Gram for gram, collagen fibrils are stronger than steel.
  6. Collagen is often used in dressing severe wounds or burns as it speeds up the healing process. Since collagen and healing cells go hand-in-hand, collagen aids in the process of skin renewal.
  7. Natural collagen production decreases with age as well as other factors like sun exposure and smoking.
  8. Hormonal changes can affect collagen production. Especially as we age during menopause.
  9. High sugar consumption can weaken collagen and make it brittle. Refined sugars increase bursts of inflammation in the body. Inflamed tissue produces an enzyme that actually breaks down collagen resulting in sagging skin.
  10. Degeneration of collagen within the body or slowed collagen production can pose health risks such as bleeding gums and joint pain. Since collagen is basically the main building block of our skin, muscles, and bones, all these parts of the body can degenerate. Also, being that just about 2/3 of our skin is made of collagen, losing it can negatively affect our appearance with wrinkling skin, dull/ thin hair, and cellulite.


As shown here, young skin layers are very structured, firm, and smooth. As we age, and the collagen breaks down in the dermis, while the epidermis begins to sink and lose shape.  We also see a significant reduction in Hyaluronic acid (essential for retaining moisture) and elastin, which gives our skin the flexible strength it needs.




Internally, Collagen can be taken as a supplement. Collagen supplements have many health benefits like strengthening hair and nails, cardiovascular health, and reducing joint pain. However, for issues like wrinkles, loss of skin volume, and cellulite, there are better solutions available.

How to stimulate collagen production so you can look like a Hollywood Screen star!

  • Make sure and feed your body essential nutrients like vitamin C and antioxidants.
  • Eat healthy proteins and omega-3 rich foods like grass-fed beef, seafood, eggs, and beans
  • Get your beauty rest! Like seriously at least 8 hours a night
  • Exercise! Especially HGH (Human Growth Hormone) producing exercises like strength and resistance training. This hormone stimulates collagen.
  • Get monthly anti-aging IPL, and weekly/bi-weekly LED light therapy to actively stimulate collagen production
  • Laser skin treatments/Chemical Peels
  • Facials like Microdermabrasion
  • Thermage RF Therapy and 3 DEEP Radio Frequency Treatments
  • Dermal fillers made of Hyaluronic Acid or Synthetic Collagen
  • Get hormonal testing so that you can treat imbalances if any
  • If you smoke, stop! For more reasons than one
  • Avoid overexposure to the sun and wear a good quality SPF


We know, it’s a lot of information to take in. Collagen is what holds our bodies together and is key to many benefits including health and beauty. Did any of these facts surprise you? Let us know! Because we are an anti-aging clinic, Beautique Medical Spa specializes in services specifically designed to increase collagen production.

Success with Kybella

We have talked about Kybella a few times on our blogs and clearly it is one of our favorite treatments! The science, benefits, and results are enough to create a believer but what about post procedure? What about before? Did you know that you can pair more than one procedure? Sometimes, with everything available out there, a treatment plan for your aesthetic goals can be a little overwhelming. Here, we offer some recommendations on maximizing the success of your Kybella treatment as well as how to combine  Kybella with other services for superior results. 


 Kybella treatments are non-invasive and have little to zero downtime. We recommend the following steps in order to keep it that way.

 Before your procedure 

  • To minimize bruising or bleeding, eliminate the use of Aspirin, Ibeuprophen, Ginko Biloba, Cod Liver Oil, Vitamin E and other fatty acids for about a week prior to treatment.
  • Consult with your doctor about medications you are taking.  
  • Avoid high sodium foods, sugary foods, alcohol, caffeine or any other substance that may induce swelling.  
  • Get your treatment 2-3 weeks before any major events as swelling may take a bit to subside completely.  


After your procedure 

  • Do not massage or rub the treatment area 
  • Ice is your best friend! Ice the area in 20-30-minute intervals for about 24 hours 
  • If possible sleep on your back for 3-5 days 
  • Avoid excessive sun and heat exposure for 3-5 days 


Talk to us about the following treatments to maximize your Kybella results!

Detox Facial – Kybella destroys fat cells and they then exit the body through the lymphatic system. Three to four weeks post treatment, we highly recommend a lymphatic facial massage. The “Detox Facial” offered by Beautique stimulates lymphatic drainage and detoxing. This relaxing and contouring facial can help speed up the Kybella process as well as give your face a beautiful glow AND release endorphins. Yes! We enjoy this facial so much that we blogged about. Check it out in the archives here: BLOG Archives: Lymphatic Facial Massage

Thermage – Whenever a portion of fat is removed from the body, the skin has to bounce back. Depending on factors such as age, skin elasticity, and collagen quality, our skin may not always bounce back the way we want it to. Sometimes, submental fullness is caused by excess skin itself. If Kybella rids your neck of fat but you still have excess skin, we recommend adding Thermage to tighten the area and stimulate collagen production. Thermage uses radio frequencies to stimulate collagen and shrink back the skin We recommend Thermage first so that you can get Kybella right away, but if you receive Kybella first then you would need to wait a couple of weeks before getting Thermage. We have written about this dynamic duo before! Destroy the fat and tighten up that skin with Kybella + Thermage – you can read more here BLOG Archives: The Dynamic Duo Kybella + Thermage

Ultra Slim or 3Deep – If you have excessive amount of fat under your chin, you can combine fat eliminating treatments if they are done in the correct way. For example, treat with Ultra Slim (light therapy fat destroyer) and then, after sufficient time, use Kybella to spot treat, or vise versa. Your beauty expert at Beautique can come up with the right plan for you in order to meet all of your goals. As you have probably guessed, we have blogged about UltraSlim too! Read more about it here: BLOG Archives: UltraSlim – Shed up to 2 Inches in an Hour!

Kybella’s success rate and efficiency in treating submental fat, make it one of the most valuable and successful treatments out there. If you have additional questions feel free to contact the spa. We’ve got answers! Contact Us

The Real-Life Eraser Tool

You know that magical little eraser tool in our beauty photo apps? The one that makes those annoying imperfections on our face disappear? What if we told you there was a real life version? Well, great news, Juvéderm XC is like a real-life eraser tool, magically eliminating lines and wrinkles! Juvéderm, and the Juvéderm family of dermal fillers are made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance found in the body. This substance is a vital lubricant and moisturizer used by the body to cushion joints and aid in healing tissues. Each filler in the Juvéderm family is formulated with Vycross cross-linking technology which effects particle sizing and consistency. Each filler is designed to target different issues of the skin. They can be used separately, focusing on specific areas of the face, or in combination with each other for more complex issues.


What is Juvéderm XC?

Juvéderm XC is a smooth consistency gel filler that works best for laugh lines, fine lines, and nasolabial folds. Other hyaluronic acid fillers available on the market are more of a granular consistency which can produce puffier and less natural results. Juvéderm gives instant, natural results that can last up to one year.



What is Juvéderm Voluma?

Juvéderm Voluma is formulated to be injected deep into the skin below the muscle. It’s best for adding volume to sunken cheeks and sagging skin. Voluma can also be used to lift cheeks in order to pull skin back and lessen the appearance of loose skin lower on the face sort of like a faux face lift. In combination with Juvéderm XC, you can target all areas around the nose and mouth while giving your cheeks a youthful plump. Voluma last up to 2 years and produces instant results.



What is Juvéderm Vollure?

Juvéderm Vollure is much like its parent filler Juvéderm XC. It can be used for the same issues but for a slightly softer look. Vollure also lasts a little longer than Juvéderm XC at about 18 months. Juvéderm Vollure produces softer, less dramatic, and more natural results.



What is Juvéderm Volbella?

Juvéderm Volbella is specially designed for delicate lip areas and finer lines. Volbella consists of smaller particle sizes with lower molecular weight ratio. This means that Juvéderm Volbella can easily be used in very small areas like above the lips, in the lips, and under the eyes along the trough. The effect is plumper lips without looking overly full, the elimination of fine lines without puffing, and a solution for hollow, saggy looking eyes. Volbella lasts for about a year and can be administered every month for touch ups as needed.



Wish you could use an eraser tool on your actual face? Can you picture yourself with similar results? YES! So can we. Beautique Medical Spa proudly offers the Juvéderm family of fillers. You can find out more information on these services and more by visiting our website. Got questions? Let us know in the comments below!

Who Benefits from Kybella?

Studies show that what humans perceive to be a youthful looking face include even skin tone, face shape, plump lips, firmness, and fuller cheeks that contrast with a narrower chin. The area between the chin and neck really get the brunt of the aging process as gravity naturally pulls the skin downward. The dreaded “double chin” can really affect our self-confidence as well as how old we look.  This occurs when a layer of fat below the chin sags, creating a secondary pad of skin and fat to take shape along the facial profile.  Known as submental fat or fullness, the extra fat under the chin affects many people.

The double chin is caused by several factors including:

  • Age
  • excess weight or obesity
  • genetics


Submental fullness can also be hereditary. Many individuals, both men and women, suffer from a hereditary predisposition to this issue, naturally storing fat and retaining water in this area. In fact, these factors can cause otherwise healthy weight people to appear overweight.

There are many things we can do to help diminish submental fat and sagging. Clearly losing weight would help, and special exercises that target the neck area are beneficial as well. But what about those who are predisposition to this? How easy is it for your double chin to come back?

Kybella offers an effective and alternative solution to this dilemma by eliminating the fat under your chin for good. You can read more about how it works on a previous blog post here (insert link). Kybella injections permanently remove submental fat creating a leaner silhouette and more prominent profile.



Who can benefit from Thermage?

  • Men & Women
  • Individuals who show their extra weight in the chin/neck area
  • Individuals who are predisposition to have a “double chin”
  • Those who show signs of aging in the cheeks and neck


Whether you are having trouble losing weight or double chins just run in your family, Kybella is the solution for you. The best part? Since Kybella destroys the fat cells, they can no longer store or accumulate fat resulting in permanent results.

Say Goodbye to your Razor!

At Last…

Say goodbye to the old-fashioned and outdated torture of hair removal methods once and for all! 

Summer is on its way and you know what that means – shorts, bathing suits, tank tops, and flip flops. With days spent at the pool and outside with your loved ones, who has time for old-fashioned shaving with a razor?  Not savvy Beautique Medical Spa clients. They all get Laser Hair Removal. Plus, shaving irritates your skin (you know, South Padre Salt Water and shaving do not mix) and shaving only lasts for a couple days. Oh, and don’t even get me started on those ugly little prickly pimples left behind when you shave. Plucking and waxing may last longer, however, they still can irritate and can be quite painful as well, OUCH!

Laser Hair Removal (LHR) is one of the most common cosmetic procedures in the U.S. With current technology, it is also one of the most successful. Although it is a widely used treatment, if you aren’t getting Laser Hair Removal it’s probably because you still have some questions about it. Below is the top 7 most common questions we’ve been asked over the years.  We have all the answers because we have been doing this for a LONG time …. 16 years as a matter of fact!




Q: What is Laser Hair Removal?

A: Laser Hair Removal is the process of treating targeted areas with a highly concentrated beam of light directly into the hair follicles. This process destroys the hair root and disables the follicle from producing hair in the future.


Q: Does Laser Hair Removal hurt?

A: LHR is much less painful than waxing or plucking. Depending on the device, there may be some slight discomfort described by patients as a light rubber band snap against the skin. Since we each KNOW Laser Hair Removal at Beautique, and we are kind of babies when it comes to pain, we have three devices we use to remove hair, and NONE of them hurt.  The most we’ve had to use is ice to numb the skin, but most people don’t need anything and report that they felt no pain.  You won’t know until you experience it yourself!


Q: Will Laser Hair Removal work for me?

A: Beautique Medical Spa utilizes high tech and renowned equipment in combination with many years of experience in LHR process. We can change the lasers wavelength, pulse duration, penetration depth, treatment speed and spot size to ensure effectiveness on all skin and hair types.  We actually have a proprietary protocol that can be used to treat grey, white, and red hair…which is unheard of with most Laser Hair Removal clinics.  We are OBSESSED when it comes to being hair free, which is why we researchand scour the globe for tricks of the trade to train our team and ensure that we can help everyone be free from unwanted hair.


Q: How many treatments will I need?

A: Did you know that all hair on the body goes through a cycle and each individual hair is in a different cycle at any given time? Cycles run one to three months. For this reason, anywhere from 9-12 treatments, spaced out according to hair growth cycles, are needed to achieve optimal results. Before we get started we have a very thorough consultation where we educate our clients on how hair cycles work on different areas of the body and why we require a certain number of visits strategically scheduled depending on the body part we are concentrating on. One of our pet peeves is that many offices treat helter-skelter, giving Laser Hair Removal a BAD NAME.  Our goal is to get you HAIR FREE and we are committed to reaching that goal safely and effectively.


Q: Will Laser Hair Removal discolor my skin?

A: There has been cases of hyper-pigmentation happening as a side affect post treatment, however, the side effect is preventable, This kind of side effect really only happens when you choose a location that doesn’t understand pigment and hair. If you choose the right place with the right equipment, like Beautique Medical Spa, you won’t have to worry. We won’t treat or accept a client if they are not following the pre and post care rules.  We don’t mess around…. SAFETY FIRST!  Aftercare is very important. As long as the post-care regiment is followed, there should be little to no side effects.


Q: Is Laser Hair Removal Permanent?

A: Laser Hair Removal significantly reduces future hair growth, especially when done in multiple treatments to cover all the phases of hair growth. When done correctly most people can stop shaving all-together. The right treatment plan, based on skin type and hair type is the key to success.


Q: Is LHR expensive?

A: Laser Hair Removal has been quite expensive in the past. Fortunately, with newer technology the price can be quite affordable. Once you have chosen an office you feel comfortable with, the best option is usually to purchase packages or deals depending on the area(s) you want treated.

Marisol’s Six-Month Journey to Clear Skin

Did you know that Acne affects over 60 million Americans? If you have any form of acne, from an occasional break out to being completely plagued with acne, please know that you are NOT alone. In fact, not many are immune to this condition, including our very own Guest Relations Manager, Marisol Rivera.

Marisol bravely documented her 6-month journey to clear skin and is sharing her step-by-step regimen with us!


First, lets take a look at the type of acne Marisol was suffering from:


As you can see, Marisol suffered from a combination of active acne as well as scarring from previous breakouts. As those of us with moderate to severe acne know, it is a vicious cycle. As soon as we get a breakout under control, the next break out is around the corner and ready to strike, before our skin has a chance to completely heal. This creates complex layers of scarring and discoloration in the skin.  Six years ago, when Marisol began her career with Beautique Medical Spa, she didn’t have the extensive skincare knowledge that she has today, but under Veronica’s guidance, she was able to start her path to clear skin.


First Steps

Assessing her skin and choosing the right products. Knowing the difference between high and low-quality skin care products is an important factor. Generally, drug store face washes and treatments are not very effective and contain many unneeded chemicals and fillers which can lead to worse skin. Rhonda Allison skin care products (proudly offered by Beautique Medical Spa) are result-driven solutions to many skin issues including acne. Rhonda Allison is known for her advanced research with acids for peels and cutting-edge technology.

Marisol started off with:

Rhonda Allison Beta Green Tea Cleanser– this cleanser is ideal for sensitive skin. It is a great combo of antioxidant rich green tea and pore cleansing salicylic acid.

Rhonda Allison Beta Green Tea Lotion – great for problematic skin, this toner balances the skin and keeps excess oil in check

Rhonda Allison Blemish Serum – reduce the appearance of blemishes and support pure skin. Can be used for spot treatments or as an all over treatment.


Light Therapy, Peels, and Lasers

Once she was receiving the right formulas for her skin, Marisol started light therapy treatments, laser treatments, and facial peels. These methods have various benefits for acne prone skin such and removing dead/scarred layers of skin, brightening hyper-pigmentation, and inhibiting acne causing bacteria.

Here is her treatment regimen:

Peels – We started her off with some gentle peels which is the ideal starting point for clients who have never had a peel before. These treatments remove dead skin cells gently and stimulate cell regeneration.

LED Facial –  Marisol had LED Therapy at least twice a week. This is a colored light therapy used for different types of skin issues. Namely, blue-light therapy kills acne-causing bacteria without further damaging the skin.

Laser Hair Removal – we don’t always think of acne when it comes to hair removal, but did you know plucking and waxing can cause some deep-rooted breakouts? With Laser Hair Removal many see improvements in their acne because it eliminate hair and ingrown hairs without irritation and helps to reduce oil and inflammation.

Intense Pulsed Light – Intense Pulsed Light is one of THE best ways to even out skin discoloration and erase acne scars. IPL targets pigment cells and treats hyperpigmentation.  We also used the acne settings to make sure that we were killing the pAcne bacteria that is such a havoc wreaker in our skin.

Dermalinfusion Facials – Silk Peel Dermalinfusions are similar to Microdermabrasion but are targeted to more specific issues like acne. Dermalinfusion Facials are step up from regular Micros because it infuses your skin with nutrients which aid in the cell turnover and healing process.


Marked Improvement

Marisol’s skin began to improve shortly after she began her treatments and drastic improvements at about 2 months into her journey. With her skin clearer than ever, but still some problem areas, Marisol began using the premier skin care line Nelly Du Vuyst – a gentle approach, which is recommended while using light, laser, and peel therapies. Nelly Du Vuyst products boast natural and plant derived ingredients combining the best of science and nature while being good to the environment.

Marisol’s Nelly Du Vuyst Regimen:

Nelly Foaming Cleanser – light, gentle, and airy yet deep cleansing for sensitive skin acne prone skin.

Nelly Sensitive Skin Toner – maintain pH balance with this mild and soothing toner which focuses on the hydrating upper layers of the dermis.

Nelly Radiance Cream – specifically designed for those who are prone to brown spots and hyper-pigmentation. Lighten the skin while maintaining optimal hydration.


Now, with gorgeous glowing skin, Marisol’s current regimen includes:

Physiodermie Hydrating Milk Cleanser – a gentle cleanser that moisturizes and rebalances your skins pH balance which is an important preventative measure.

Nelly Sensitive Skin Toner – continued daily use as seen above.

Nelly Hygia Oil – this amazingly versatile blend of essential oils that is antiseptic and antibacterial promoting clean fresh skin.

Skinesque Washing Powder – a wonderful exfoliant that uses enzymes and vitamins to remove impurities and slough away dead skin. Marisol currently uses this 2-3 times a week to maintain radiant skin.


Today Marisol has her regimen down to a science and as you can see from the after picture below, she is doing it well. She no longer needs heavy foundation or concealer. In her after pic below all she is wearing is:

Jane Iredale Smooth Affair Primer – Jane Iredale is an amazing cosmetic line that focuses on clients looking great with good-for-skin products. Smooth Affair Primer is great for oily skin and creates an even skin tone while minimizing the appearance of pores.

Jane Iredale PurePressed Mineral Powder in Latte – weightless sheer matte powder

Jane Iredale PurePressed Mineral Blush in Mystique

RevitaLash Primer & Mascara – RevitaLash is known for great lashes and their motto is “Yes, they’re real!” Marisol uses lash primer to smooth unruly hairs and create a lengthening foundation for volumizing mascara.


Congratulations to our beautiful Marisol and her stunningly beautiful complexion!

What is Kybella?

In the last decade a revolutionary treatment has been studied, trialed, and FDA approved for literally, melting fat under the chin. Kybella is an injection treatment for submental fullness that rids the area under the chin of excess fat.

This sounds amazing right? Of course, it is easy to be skeptical as promises of fat elimination treatments have been around for years. However, Kybella is the FIRST FDA approved treatment for the appearance of submental fat (double chin). Understanding the science behind it is the first step.

How does Kybella work?

Deoxycholate acid, the main synthetic ingredient of Kybella, is an acid found in the stomach that digests and processes fat molecules for absorption. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, Kybella destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. The fat is then processed through the lymphatic system and exited out of the body with other natural waste.
