When you wake up and stumble into the bathroom, what you see in the mirror changes your perspective on the morning. Give yourself - and your day - a lift with these minimally- and non-invasive beauty boosts.

Morning Mantras that Give Us a Lift
Post-it to your mirror, whisper them to yourself in the shower - whatever it takes! Do them until they feel natural and authentic with each mental or verbal utterance - because research shows that positive self talk improves our moods, relationships and even earning potential.
Here are some of our favorites to get you started.

I am thankful for all my life's blessings.
I can do this.
Today, I am present and focused.
My potential is unlimited.
I have enough time and energy to accomplish all I desire.
It is enough to do my best.
I share my light with those I love.
The right solutions come to me easily.
I am at peace and free from worry.
I am strong, healthy and full of joy.
I freely release thoughts and patterns that no longer serve me.
I create space for what inspires and motivates me.

Lift Sagging Skin
We consider the Silhouette InstaLift to be that perfect middle-ground procedure between lasers and more-extreme measures like facelifts. This non-surgical, minimally-invasive procedure utilizes clever bi-directional cone sutures to safely and gently reposition your subdermal tissue. You'll get a lift in your appearance, plus a beautiful bonus. The sutures are naturally absorbed by your body, stimulating the production of collagen in the process. This procedure lifts, contours and restores the midface and neck areas without spending a pretty penny. Your face treatment is $2,500 right now (Normally $3,000.); the neck treatment is $2,000 (Normally $2,500.) or do both for $4,000 and get two complimentary neck microneedling treatments for a total savings of $2,000.

Lift Overall Texture & Tone
The Vampire Facial gives your skin's tone and texture a big boost, thanks to your own platelet rich plasma (PRP). You'll benefit from a micro-needling treatment that will resurface your skin, softening fine lines, kicking up the collagen, reducing the appearance of scars and sunspots and shrinking pores. The process starts with a topical numbing application and simple blood draw. Your vial is then placed in a centrifuge to separate the red blood cells and concentrate the highly-valuable platelets, which are then re-infused with plasma to create PRP. During a 30-minute session, your PRP is worked into your skin's surface and deeper layers via micro-needling, infusing your face with your own concentrated growth factors. Healing time is minimal and results continue to improve over the coming weeks.

Lift your Eyes without Botox or Surgery
The quickest "lift" to your eyes can come at the hands of an expert brow artist - no needles necessary. Identifying your most flattering natural arch position opens up the eye area, creating a younger, more flattering look. Thick brows are "in" right now, but if you've overplucked in the past, the re-growth can be disheartening. Make a plan and become a wax fan - your brows will be lush and lovely in no time.
