WITH EXPERT PICKS FOR PERFECT SKIN
By the Master Estheticians from PRO Medical Spa, Maple Valley
The world of skin care has changed drastically over the last decade with advanced science in both skin technologies and product formulation. Now, more than ever, we have treatments and products that can truly repair and reverse the signs of aging so your skin can stay young. Today’s treatments focus on penetrating the surface skin, stimulating collagen from within and below to trigger it’s production, which works to improve the appearance of wrinkles, texture and sagging. Plus, the new technologies are more efficient, less invasive, address multiple skin concerns and provide minimal downtime.
Home care is also important to maintain your investment and supplement results. Each of the featured products are scientifically advanced with research supported by dermatologists and clinical trials. Much more powerful than drugstore skin care.
With so many treatments to choose, the Master Estheticians at PRO Medical Spa provide their top treatment and product selections for the most common skin concerns.
(Bethany) BEST FOR NEWBIES – MOXI™

(Kaylana) BEST FOR SAGGING SKIN – Virtue RF Microneedling
Sagging skin is one of the most common skin concerns. As you age, your cells produce less collagen, which leads to sagging skin and wrinkles. Radiofrequency (RF) therapy, is a non-surgical method for tightening the skin. The procedure uses energy waves to heat the deep layer of dermis. This heat stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, which gives skin its firmness. Combining this treatment with microneedling helps to further improve skin tone and texture. It may take up to 4-6 weeks until the full benefits are apparent.
HOME CARE: Alastin, Restorative Skin Complex: This winner of Women’s Health “Best Moisturizer for Mature Skin 2021” award, uses patented TriHex Technology® , a blend of active peptides and key ingredients, to stimulate the production of new, healthy elastin and collagen. Formulated to help volumize and lift skin, target dullness and uneven skin tone, and combat all visible signs of aging to restore optimal skin health.
BEST FOR SKIN REGENERATION – Virtue RF Microneedling with PRP
The Virtue RF microneedling treatment can be enhanced by adding your own biological material, PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma). A simple blood draw extracts your plasma, which is spun in a centrifuge to obtain your own growth factors. The PRP is applied to your face following the microneedling process. The tiny pinpricks allow for the PRP to absorb more thoroughly into your skin to support skin repair and rejuvenation by stimulating cell turnover. It’s an all-in-one advanced solution to many of the common
