Are You a Skincare Slacker?

The top trend that keeps repeating year after year is that SKIN is in. The journey towards healthier, better looking skin is rooted in a good skincare regimen coupled with a clinical line up of products tailored to meet YOUR specific needs. Similar to sculpting and toning your body in the gym, you must kick your skincare routine into hyper-drive in order to achieve the dramatic results you so desperately desire. What exactly are you hiding under all of that foundation and concealer? If flawless skin is a non-negotiable this season, you simply must enlist yourself in Skincare Boot Camp. Our skin is the largest organs in our bodies, it is essential to take special care of it, and be mindful of what you allow it to absorb. As our skin matures, we have to pay much closer attention to caring for this delicate organ. Mature or environmentally damaged skin loses elasticity and collagen causing fine lines, sagging skin, and dynamic wrinkles to appear. As cellular regeneration slows down with age we must somehow stimulate cellular turnover and increase circulation to ensure our skin is properly nourished and hydrated. A balanced, effective skincare regime that incorporates science and technology with clinically proven, results-oriented ingredients is more necessary than ever. My tried and true Boot Camp routine will re-inforce your skins natural defense mechanisms, combat free radical damage caused by environmental exposure and restore a healthy nutritional balance to your cells. What all that means? Beautiful, clear, radiant skin!

A comprehensive evaluation of your skin and lifestyle is step one on the journey towards beautiful clear skin. Skin types and conditions vary greatly as each person is unique. You are born with your skin, ethnicity and genetics determine the type of skin you have, lifestyle choices factor into how your skin ages. Our beauty expert Audrey, will first perform a systematic head-to-toe evaluation and precise skin analysis to reveal your unique beauty needs. Understanding your essential concerns, she will tailor a treatment plan aligned with your unique needs and expectations.


Marilyn, our licensed master aesthetician and resident micropen expert at the Townhouse, is just the person to whip your skin back into amazing shape. A powerful tool in her arsenal against aging is the Elite Micropen. Micropen is a cutting-edge, cultishly popular treatment that creates smooth, angelic, fresh looking skin, no make-up needed! This magical little pen, also known as micro needling, painlessly penetrates the skin on a cellular level to increase collagen production, helping to restore and reprogram your skin’s elasticity, reducing fine lines, wrinkles, acne depressions, traumatic scars, and stretch marks. With repeated sessions, micro needling will not only minimize pore size to restore healthy, youthful looking skin, but it also corrects a variety of skin conditions including discoloration, uneven texture, and sun damage. During your magical micropen session a cocktail of potent botanicals, vitamins, and nutrients is micro-infused using this innovative trans-dermal technology. Micro-infusion transports active, clinically proven ingredients deep beneath the skin to help eradicate your skin woes and accelerate the healing process. This skin-changing game changer will transform your skin in as little as 4-8 sessions, however, similar to a facial we recommend repeating the treatment monthly to maintain a youthful, dewy appearance! To accelerate the results of your treatment, our clinical couture menu of micro-infused treatment boosters includes: (aka my version of a kid in a candy store)

FreckleFIX Elixir:

Our body naturally produces a pigment known as melanin through specialized cells known as melanocytes. Melanin production detrimentally increases in response to sun exposure, as well as post-acne breakout and during pregnancy. Our SpotFIX booster contains Kojic Acid, which is a powerful skin lightener that evens skin tone, diminishes freckles, age spots, and hyperpigmentation. With long-term use, Kojic Acid is highly effective. You should maintain the results at home with products designed to inhibit melanin production such as: Innoaestheitcs DSE cream, and Skin Better Sciences Alto Serum.

C-My Shine Elixir:

For dull, photo-aged skin that has been ravaged with time by the sun and environmental pollutants. Vitamin C helps shield the skin from dam-aging (!) effects of free radicals. Free radicals are ravenous rogue molecules, including daily environmental factors that lead to wrinkles, sunspots, and premature aging. Free-radical damage comes in many different forms that assault our skin on a daily basis; the worst part is we simply cannot escape them! Vitamin C is the only antioxidant that has been proven to increase collagen synthesis, which is essential to maintaining healthy skin from the inside out. Vitamin C is an antioxidant shortcut to protecting the skin by neutralizing free radicals. Be seen in gorgeous skin: try a C-Me Shine Elixir. Great for all skin ages and types. Should be followed up by a vitamin C infused serum, my favorite is Alto by Skin Better Science and Image Skincare’s Vital C Enzyme Masque.

Major MoistureFIX Elixir:

Say hello to hydrated, plumper looking skin. This booster is a powerful humectant (moisture-binding ingredient) that keeps skin plumped up and yes, looking younger. As we age, skin moisture levels drop significantly, which makes the skin lose elasticity and show signs of aging. Hyaluronic Acid plays a crucial role in skin health with its innate ability to hold in moisture (1000 ml of water per gram of hyaluronic acid)! Add an HA Shot to boost your skin’s moisture levels and skin suppleness. Great for all skin types, young and old. At home regimen should include a Hyaluronic Acid serum, my go to HA Serum is HA5 by  Lines by Skin Better Science, .

Skin-A-id Elixir:

Retinol is a very powerful form of Vitamin A. Retinol is prized for its proven youth-enhancing benefits. Retinol actually signals your body to produce new cells and collagen for firmer and smoother skin while also reducing acne, hyperpigmentation, and clogged pores. Great for photo-damaged skin, acne, and fine lines. At home products: DSE Cream, AlphaRet, Sente Biocomplete Serum, both products may be combined with a moisturizer

CellularFIX Elixir:

Growth factors are secreted by all cell types that make up the epidermis (outer layer of skin) and dermis (the layer of skin between the epidermis and subcutaneous tissue). Micro-infusing specialized human growth factors will stimulate your cells to create collagen and elastic fibers, which give the skin its softness and lack-of-sag. They also provide synergistic interaction with other proteins in the epidermis and dermis that results in skin repair and regeneration, this aids in wound healing, improve circulation and acne.

PlateletFIX Elixir:

Our vampire inspired booster uses your very own Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) to rejuvenate skin. Plasma is the internal essence of your blood, containing life-giving proteins and eight growth factors essential to healthy skin. Growth factors signal your cells to produce collagen-restoring elasticity to improve overall texture, tone, and pore size. PRP treatments increase the skin’s blood supply to provide immediate results, helping to restore the flow of vital nutrients and give you back a radiant glow. This scientific treatment using your own genetic material will guarantee younger, fresher, healthier skin.  For all skin types and ethnicities. Should be followed up at home with: Sente’s Daily Repair Complex.

Keeping your skin in good health is the cornerstone of youth and beauty. Smart treatments and skincare will enhance your natural beauty and can take years off of your appearance. The secret to beautiful, clear skin sans make-up isn’t a secret anymore!
