As Valentine’s Day approaches, we’ve got a gift idea that’s better than chocolates or roses. It’s a gift that keeps on giving long after Valentine’s Day, and leaves you with positively luminous skin.
Did you guess a skin renewing treatment at AVIE! Medspa? Nothing says “I love you” like the gift of radiant skin. The hardest part is deciding which treatment to get, which is where our expertise (and gift cards) come in handy. At AVIE!, we are passionate about skin care, and we offer a leading selection of treatments to meet your every concern, from decreasing large pore size and clearing breakouts to diminishing wrinkles and dullness. Here are a few revitalizing treatments to consider:
This non-invasive treatment penetrates stimulating energy deep below the skin to diminish age spots, freckles, pore size, dullness, and more with no downtime. For a healthy glow year-round, many of our clients opt for seasonal photofacials to keep sun damage at bay and trigger new collagen production for long-lasting, younger-looking skin.
•Laser Skin Resurfacing
Halo and ProFractional™ laser skin renewal are two amazing skin treatments that work by stimulating your skin’s natural healing response. These treatments safely penetrate skin to ultimately reveal tighter, brighter, younger-looking skin with diminished wrinkles, pore size, age spots, and much more.
•Microneedling and PRP
These two treatments are amazing on their own but provide outstanding benefits to the skin when combined. Microneedling creates tiny holes in the skin with micro-needles, stimulating your skin’s natural healing response to reveal age-defying benefits, including tighter, more evenly toned skin. PRP (platelet-rich plasma) is a concentrated portion of your very own blood containing growth factors, which have potent healing properties to reveal younger-looking skin. Microneedling essentially primes your skin to soak up every last drop of PRP, and bolsters your skin’s natural healing process.
It’s worth mentioning that this time of year is ideal for skin renewal. Results-driven skin care leaves skin vulnerable and in need of constant sun protection, which is much easier to do when you’re inside more often and covered under layers of clothing.
At AVIE!, our goal is to arm you with the facts so you can be smart about your skin. We’ll partner with you to select the optimal brands for your unique needs, and we’ll help you every step of the way to ensure that proper application and benefits are achieved.
We can’t wait to help you find your optimal selection of skin treatments! For more information, call 703.870.3844 or click here to request a free consultation today.

You have a ton of power and influence when it comes to the health and radiance of your skin. Everything you do to your skin—good or bad—counts. It may not show up right away, but it will!
The lifespan of a skin cell is two to four weeks. Your skin is in a constant state of renewal, and it takes a minimum of six weeks for new skin cells to replace the old. Basically, the good things you do today will reveal luminous, show-stopping benefits months down the road. So don’t let your skin down!
Here are 3 fool-proof tips for boosting your skin’s radiance this holiday season. The time to start these habits is now!
Go to bed!
Beauty sleep is not a myth! Your body repairs itself while you’re sleeping, manufacturing new collagen, a powerhouse skin protein that makes skin plumper and less likely to wrinkle. According to an article from WebMD, getting only 5 hours of sleep a night can lead to twice as many fine lines as sleeping 7 would.
Befriend vitamin A.
This magical vitamin protects against UV damage and slows signs of aging by encouraging healthy skin cell production. Be sure to indulge in foods rich in vitamin A including orange and green, leafy veggies (e.g., spinach, sweet potatoes, carrots, cantaloupe). Topical vitamin A in the form of retinol and retinoic acid can literally smooth wrinkles and combat signs of aging by boosting collagen production and strengthening skin. At AVIE!, we carry an extensive selection of products featuring vitamin A, including lines by Alastin® Skincare and SkinMedica®. We can help you find the perfect products for your skin during your consultation!
Schedule smart skin treatments at AVIE!
Your skin deserves regular renewing treatments. From photofacials and Halo™ fractional laser skin resurfacing to microneedling and chemical peels, we offer a variety of leading treatments that can revitalize your skin by stimulating cellular turnover and triggering new collagen production.

Double your treatments, double your results! I’m referring to the rising popularity of combination beauty treatments. According to a recent survey by the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons (AAFPRS), combination therapies are booming in the beauty industry. This means that more and more people are strategically doubling up cosmetic treatments in one session—i.e., scheduling a microdermabrasion before a chemical peel.
Combining treatments has many advantages. For one, in the world of beauty, two is often better than one! Many aesthetic treatments are complementary and can enhance overall results. It’s the main reason we perform microneedling before platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatments. Priming the skin with tiny needles helps the skin to better absorb PRP, intensifying your results.
Time is also a major factor. People want to reduce signs of aging, but they don’t want to spend all their time doing it! Combining treatments is an easy way to save time in addition to getting the most out of your treatments.
As experts in aesthetic medicine, we know every possible combination in the book and can help you formulate the most effective plan to meet your unique needs. What’s your perfect pairing? Find out by calling 703.870.3844 or clicking here to schedule your consultation today!
Why do healthy skin care habits seem to fall by the wayside when the warm weather hits? I’ve seen it too many times to count. From fall to spring, my awesome clients work diligently to revitalize their skin by applying medical-grade skin care products and scheduling regular skin treatments. Then June hits, and all bets are off as they lay out in the sun! Thing is, your skin needs TLC year-round, especially in the dogs days of summer when hazards like UV damage and acne abound! To keep your skin healthy and happy, I’ve come up with three essential summertime tips:
•Go for a HEALTHY glow.
I know how alluring sunbathing can be, but all the risks—including premature wrinkles, sun damage, and age spots—are hardly worth it. If you’re desperate for sun-kissed color, grab a bronzer. Your skin will thank you! For a flawless complexion that lasts all day, I love glo minerals®, an award-winning line of mineral make up at AVIE! that provides flawless coverage while nourishing your skin with healing antioxidants.
•Book your treatments now.
It’s not just about prevention. You can actually reverse sun damage and keep your skin healthy by doing services such as microneedling, chemical peels, hydrafacials and dermaplaning during the summer months. Skin rejuvenation treatments remove sun damaged skin cells and initiate new collagen growth, revealing younger-looking, intensely revitalized skin.
•Marry your SPF.
At the very least, get close and acquainted, because your sunscreen should be no more than an arm’s length away every single day of the year, particularly during the sultry months. Protecting your skin from the sun is the single-most important action you can take to maintain gorgeous, healthy skin. My personal favorite is Alastin HydraTint Pro Mineral SPF 36 for everyday use and Image Prevention+ Sport Sunscreen Spray SPF 50 if I am going to be at the beach.
