Youth Serum

Medical Spas turn back time.

When I look in the mirror these days the expression “Youth is wasted on the young.” rings in my ears. I find myself longing for the days of itty-bitty crows feet that only appeared when I smiled, an unlined forehead, and smooth dewy skin. All of those features I once took for granted.

If you're not inclined to age gracefully you are lucky to live in the land of luxury Medical Day Spas. A needle stick here, a peel there and Tada! you've turned back the clock. Medical Spas are in the business of helping us defy gravity through non-surgical treatments requiring no post-procedure downtime (a.k.a. self-imposed house arrest until the bruising and swelling of more invasive procedures disappear.)
