Every new year is an opportunity for growth and improvement. Here at WEFPS, we want everybody to look and feel their best, so I thought I’d sit down and share some resolutions you might consider if you want 2020 to be your skin’s best year yet.

Got sun damage? Come in for IPL!
IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light. It’s kind of like a laser, except where lasers take a very small part of the light spectrum to do a job, IPL uses intense white light to get rid of sun spots and broken capillaries. There’s minimal to no down time, although you do need to be out of the sun for a week after your treatment. I had a series of three treatments a couple of years ago and get about one touch up treatment a year now. For more, check out this video:
Get on our schedule for monthly dermal infusion facials!
Trust your skin to Lita!
Dermal infusion facials combine microdermabrasion with infusions that can be customized based on your skin’s needs. The microdermabrasion exfoliates you and cleans out your pores. The infusions then can help if you have dry skin, acne, or just want to brighten your skin. They’re great as one- time treatments if you’re looking to pamper yourself, but they’re best used as monthly treatments to keep your skin at its best. For more on our aesthetic services, click here!
Botox® and Xeomin® are for beauty maintenance too!
Everybody knows that Botox® helps your wrinkles. Xeomin® is a close cousin and I have used them interchangeably in my practice for about six years. Both of them make muscles relax. Once your facial muscles relax, the overlying skin wrinkles get better. But the best news is, you can prevent them in the first place by judiciously starting Botox® BEFORE you have any wrinkles!
Come see me in Charlottesville and Chester!
In 2019, I became the medical director of two med spas in central Virginia. This means I oversee some of their more advanced treatments and I see patients there for injectables and consultations.

While we were all sitting at home for most of 2020, I kept reminding myself that scientists were rapidly working on a COVID-19 Vaccine. Once community spread of COVID-19 became wide spread, there really wasn’t going to be another way out of the pandemic.
