TREATMENTS

 

Afterglow signature Gem Peel

Hyperpigmentation・Pore Refining・Fine Lines

Skin sheds an average of 30,000-40,000 cells an hour.  The gem peel works by vacuuming ultra-fine crystals across the skin surface as the finely abrasive action exfoliates and deeply cleanses the outer layer of skin.  This gently removes dead skin cells and unclogs pores.  It stimulates production of new dermal cells and collagen to improve skin appearance.  This treatment is safe for all skin types, FDA-cleared and can be performed on the whole body.  The treatment includes deep steam cleansing, oxygen therapy, LED therapy, and products customized to meet your skin's needs.

This peel fades sun damage and age spots, softens fine lines and scars, reduces pore size, and eliminates blackheads and whiteheads.  The precise instrument and meticulous motion ensure uniform results.

For optimum results, this peel is recommended every 2-4 weeks, depending on skin type.

MICRO-NEEDLING COLLAGEN INDUCTION THERAPY (CIT)

Hyperpigmentation・Pore refining・Fine Lines

Micro-needling is a safe, chemical and laser-free method that triggers new collagen production which is known to regenerate skin cells for a more radiant complexion.  This highly requested, painless treatment utilizes fine, precise needles to deliver healing & anti-aging serums beneath the skin to target multiple skin issues such as enlarged pores, discoloration, dehydration, fine lines and scars.  These precious serums include caviar, peptides, anti-oxidants or vitamins based on skin needs. It can be performed on all skin types.  Micro-needling CIT is preferred over costly laser treatments as there is no risk of burning the skin.

Micro-needling CIT is recommended every 3-4 weeks, depending on skin type.

 

ZIT ZAP

Blemish Repair

Zit Zap is an acne injection for immediate blemish repair. This procedure uses a tiny amount of medication that is injected to the affected pores.  Zit Zap can be altered to make it safe for pregnant women dealing with hormonal acne.  Our Zit Zap treatment is one of our most frequent procedures since our clientele know that blemishes are unacceptable for camera time, interviews, or dates.

VENUS LEGACY

Skin Tightening・Anti-Cellulite・Minimize Fat

Venus Legacy is a radio frequency treatment device that is effective with all ages, ethnic backgrounds and gender.  This safe & painless procedure can tighten the neck and contour facial skin. Venus Legacy reduces the appearance of cellulite, and decrease fat in virtually any area of the body.  Best of all, there is no downtime, which is why many clients opt for this procedure just prior to a special event.

Cellulite is a tricky and sensitive problem to treat.  There is currently no cure.  Lasers can't reach the target, liposuction can make it worse and surgery leaves scars.  So the best way to eliminate cellulite is to exercise, eat well, use firming creams and do safe, gentle treatments such as the Venus Legacy.

Natalie has experience in using almost all radio frequency devices available for skincare and the Venus Legacy has consistently proven to be her clients’ favorite.

*Since the Venus Legacy works best when the skin is properly hydrated, our IV Hydration Therapy is an amazing add-on to consider with this therapy. (See below for description)

AFTERGLOW FOOT PEEL

Hard, Dry, Cracked Foot Repair

A treat for the feet.  We tend to neglect what gets us around. Once in a while we say "yes" to the extra scrub during a pedicure, but why deal with dry, hard skin on your feet at all?

Hyperkeratosis (thickening of the skin) may not only cause skin to crack, but may produce painful ulcers, itching and evening infections.  This exclusive foot peel is not just a luxurious treat
—it’s an absolute necessity for healthy, pretty feet.

Kojic acid is our main ingredient.  It lightens discoloration and purifies with anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties.  Salicylic acid dissolves hardened skin cells; plant extracts (aloe, lemon, peach, sage and grapefruit) soothe and brighten; and lactic acid improves skin texture and exfoliates.

Peeling time varies depending on how much dry skin has accumulated on your feet.  Typically foot skin is rejuvenated within 7-10 days.

*The treatment includes a personal, take home, follow-up kit containing soothing creams to enhance the softening process.

 

 

signature IV INFUSION

Special Occasion

Afterglow offers a variety of IV drips administered by the most experienced physicians who have years of experience in working with IV infusions.  IV Infusions at Afterglow Beverly Hills can enhance the radiance of your complexion, reduce cellulite and put some pep in your step. 

Hydration is one of the key ingredients to beautiful, healthy skin.  That's why a baby's skin is so attractive.  Babies have as much as 80% of their total bodyweight in water, whereas adults have only 60% of their total bodyweight in water.  We essentially dry up as we get older, leading to unhealthy-looking skin.

An IV infusion of vitamins and nutrients is a perfect add-on to Natalie’s treatments to enhance the hydration factor and thus the plumping and radiance factor.

These treatments are exclusively offered by experienced physicians who were one of the first to work with IV Therapy for hydration, energy and even for alleviating hangovers.  We use an exclusive IV fluid balanced to your body's pH of 7.4 to maintain your body's homeostasis.  Beware of other clinics that use IV fluids with pH of 5.0 which is very acidic.

The following are all-natural add-ons to consider as part of your treatment with Natalie, as they may boost the overall health of your skin and entire body when infused with your IV hydration:

 

ALL-IN AFTERGLOW MEGA-VITAMIN ADD-ON

Contains the following 13 essential vitamins for healthy skin:

Vitamin A (Retinol):  A potent antioxidant that has anti-aging properties by protecting our cells from daily toxic damage of free radicals.  For the skin, it helps with acne, reduces wrinkles, fade brown spots, and smooth roughness.  Vitamin A is key for good vision, a healthy immune system, and cell growth.

Vitamin D (Ergocalciferol):  For the skin, it minimizes acne, boost elasticity, stimulate collagen production, enhance radiance, and lessen lines and the appearance of dark spots.  It's key to building healthy bones.

Vitamin E (dl-alpha-tocopheryl Acetate):  It's important in reducing skin dryness by helping the skin retain its natural moisturizers.  As an antioxidant, it helps neutralize damaging free radicals and prevents fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots.

Vitamin K (Phylloquinone):  It aids in reducing the appearance of unattractive under-eye dark circles caused by fragile capillaries that allow blood to leak into skin.  Vitamin K helps prevent dark circles because it plays a vital role in the body's blood clotting process.

Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid):  A powerful antioxidant, it cleans up the free radicals that cause wrinkling, sagging, and other aging changes.  Vitamin C also helps smooth and firm skin and fades brown spots.  It helps protect against immune system deficiencies, cardiovascular disease, prenatal health problems, and eye diseases.

Vitamin B3 (Niacinamide):  It increases ceramides and fatty acids production which are key components of your skin's outer protective barrier.  This keeps moisture in and irritants out—making it ideal if your complexion is dry or sensitive.  It also improves the flushing and redness of rosacea, a common condition that can worsen with age.  B3 minimizes dark spots by inhibiting the transfer of pigment to skin cells.

Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin 5-phosphate Sodium):  Vital to the metabolic processes in the body, it's necessary for energy production and normal cell function and growth.  As an antioxidant, it helps the body fight the damaging effects of oxidation which cause the skin the wrinkle, loose its elasticity, and appear unhealthy.

Vitamin B1 (Thiamine):  Critical for healthy skin, hair, eyes, and liver.  It also helps the nervous system function properly, and is needed for good brain function.

Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine HCl):  It plays a vital role in the liver and muscles by helping it release stored carbohydrates in the metabolic process.  It helps manufacture vitamin B3, produce red blood cells and antibodies, and contributes to healthy skin, healthy digestion and a healthy nervous system.  It also appears to help alleviate the symptoms of premenstrual syndrome.

Vitamin B5 (Dexpanthenol):  It is vital in the metabolism of proteins, carbohydrates, and fats for healthy skin; and is used in the synthesis of coenzyme A, an enzyme that participates in a variety of reactions in the body, especially the breaking down of fatty acids.

Biotin:  An important component of enzymes in the body that break down certain substances like fats, carbohydrates, and others, biotin is used for preventing and treating hair loss, brittle nails, skin rashes, diabetes, and mild depression.

Folic acid:  One of the essential vitamin building blocks of our cells, folic acid is very important to the maintenance of healthy skin, hair and nails.  That's why it's required during pregnancy.

B12 (Cyanocobalamin):  It helps the body convert food (carbohydrates) into fuel (glucose), which is used to produce energy.  B12 also helps the body use fats and protein to maintain healthy skin, hair, eyes, liver, and nervous system.

 

CAFFEINE ADD-ON — Cellulite Zapper

It helps improve memory, decrease fatigue, minimize headaches, increase metabolism, and improve mental function.  It also reduces swelling and inflammation by acting as a vasoconstrictor, which helps reduce the appearance of puffy eyes.  It also has potent anti-cellulite properties by preventing and breaking down excessive accumulation of fat in cells.  Caffeine has potent antioxidant properties and helps protect cells against UV radiation and slows down the skin's photo-aging process.
