Acne Program can get Skin 95 Percent Acne Free in 90 Days
Get clear - and stay clear - with this award-winning skin program. During your Face Reality consultation, your esthetician will determine your skin and acne condition as well as the recommended products for you to use at home. The treatment after your consultation will depend on the current state of your skin, but will include an enzyme or peel, extractions and LED light therapy. Clients must commit to specially-selected home-care products (Average cost for initial 90-day supply range from $150 to $225.), diet change and in-clinic treatments in order to reach the "95-percent clear in 90 days" goal - but it's worth it!

It is recommended that during your first 90 days of the Face Reality Boot Camp, you visit your skin professional to discuss the progress of your skin and adjust your home-care routine. During this appointment, you will receive an additional, customized treatment.

This proven process is an incredible gift to yourself - or a loved one struggling with acne! Gift certificates are available.

Yes, You should Consider Extensions
For too long, hair extensions have been associated with pop stars, reality-show meltdown hair pulling and ultra-posh people whose beauty-maintenance level is consistently turned up to 11.
But the reality is that quality hair extensions are really a product for the average person hoping to add fullness, and often length, to their style. By addressing common hair-extension myths, you'll see that, yeah - maybe you should consider extensions!

MYTH: You can see them.
Sure, if someone's digging through your hair like a mama monkey checking its baby for bugs, they may notice - but with appropriate placement, color selection and application techniques selected with your hair's texture and density in mind, they'll be your sexy secret.

MYTH: They damage your hair.
This is a big concern especially for those who are considering extensions because their hair is already sparse or in poor condition. The truth is that an experienced extentionist will only use hair and techniques that are the best match for your specific situation. That's why going to an expert is so important - too-heavy of extensions, or improper application, can do significant damage.

MYTH: You need a lot of hair to get extensions.
Not true! Many people with dramatically thinning hair, or very fine hair (Or both!), can enjoy the length, fullness and confidence that comes with professional extensions. It's all in the application!
Blo Out Lounge is now offering premier extensions, with staff specialties including fine and thinning hair. 255-2569

Have Varicose or Spider Veins?
Find Out Which Treatment Could be Right for You
If you are struggling with the symptoms of varicose veins or spider veins, your solution could be only a 20-minute drive away. The L.A. Vein Center in Sherman Oaks offers a number of minimally-invasive treatments to benefit patients with vein issues. See which one might be the best fit below.

Microphlebectomy is a procedure used to remove bulging varicose veins from the body through tiny 1-mm incisions made in the skin near the affected vein. Because the incisions are so small, stitches are not typically required.

Sclerotherapy is a procedure used to treat spider veins. During the procedure, a sclerosant solution is injected into the veins with a fine needle. In time, the vein will close off and disappear from view.

Radiofrequency Ablation
Radiofrequency ablation is used to treat venous reflux and larger varicose veins that are located deeper in the leg. This technique involves the use of a thin needle and catheter. This catheter is threaded into the diseased vein and used to deliver radiofrequency energy. This energy heats the walls of the vein and closes it; the blood then reroutes itself to other healthy veins.
Harvard- and Stanford-trained double board-certified surgeon Dr. Larisse Lee of the L.A. Vein Center focuses on the most up-to-date techniques to get the results you want.
