All of this while improving the texture, tone, and the overall quality of your skin.
All Peels at Elevation Med Spa are customized to fit your Skin care concerns.
Using a Retinol along with Hydroquinone will help achieve even greater results.
RETINOL: A topical cream applied in the evening that travels down into the dermis helping to push up and out built up dead skin cells. Retinol works on the improvement of fine lines, wrinkles, texture, tone and overall clarity of the skin.

Have you heard about the non-surgical thread lift? Facial thread lifts have been around for a number of years, but many people are still unfamiliar with the effectiveness of the procedure. The technology has greatly improved over the past few years and now facial threads are being used more extensively across the country such as Los Angeles, New York and now Lone Tree and the Denver Metro area of Colorado. Until recently the only way that you could get real facial lifting was with a surgical face lift as the effects of laser or ultrasound are highly patient dependent. These procedures achieve up to 30 percent lifting effect although some cases could achieve more. Once loose skin is present only a scalpel can truly lift heavy sagging skin on the neck or jowls. If you are an individual with mild to moderate sagging or do not want to have surgery, then you may be a candidate for a facial thread lift.
What is a facial thread lift? A non-surgical thread lift uses material that is biocompatible with human tissue. The temporary sutures are strategically placed in areas of the face that will gently lift the tissue producing a younger effect. The sutures dissolve over the course of 4 – 6 months, while stimulating your own body’s natural collagen through the healing response. This is a very important component to maintain youthful skin. The sutures greatly enhance the production of collagen in the areas where the threads are placed
Collagen is necessary for the health and structure of the skin. In addition to wound healing, collagen keeps skin strong, and supple. Women lose 30% of their collagen as they go through menopause and over all, skin can lose greater than 50% of its collagen throughout a lifetime. As we age, many things contribute to the health of our collagen. A healthy diet and exercise coupled with limited alcohol consumption is important to maintain collagen levels.
There are several different types of thread lifts available. You may have heard of Nova, Miracu, MINT and InstaLift threads. The first three are all polydioxanone. Mint and Miracu threads are both molded which adds strength to the barbs which are important in lifting the facial tissue. InstaLift, which is also a biocompatible material uses a combination of poly glycolic acid (PGA) and poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) with tiny cones which helps lift the skin.
The down time or recovery for facial thread procedures is very short. For three days post the procedure, you should avoid opening the mouth too widely such as with eating. No vigorous rubbing of the face the first week. No heavy exercise for 7 days and avoid sleeping on your face especially the first 3 nights. Avoid sunlight immediately post the procedure. If you must be out in the sun, ensure you wear sunscreen. It is best not to fly in the first 24 hours as the cabin pressure may affect the facial swelling. Mild swelling and mild facial tenderness may occur the first few days and is expected. No heat should be applied to the face, such as a laser for 8 weeks post procedure.
The ideal thread candidate is between 35 and 55 years old. There are exceptions, but generally this is the ideal timeframe for successful thread procedures. Individual with heavy jowls and a falling neck are typically surgical candidates. Threads could provide some benefit for a refreshed look in older clients who are not surgical candidates as long as they have realistic expectations about results.
It is important to understand that no procedure is permanent as we all continue to age. As a guide, surgical facelifts can last up to 10 years while a thread lift will last 12 to 24 months.
As we have come to see the advancement in the material used for threads lifts, I made a concerted effort to become master certified in the procedure. I have completed five trainings sessions over the past 18 months, and I am confident that you will be satisfied with your results. I feel this procedure is going to continue to grow in popularity, and I look forward to serving you soon.

PRP hair restoration
For those of you who may be experiencing rapid or gradual hair loss such as excess shedding, male pattern baldness or a shrinking pony tail, there is hope. You have probably heard of PRP hair restoration from your friends, salon stylist or on the internet, but what is it really? PRP is platelet rich plasma taken from your own blood and injected or applied topically to the treated area.
PRP hair restoration is a relatively new process that has some scientific studies and evidence to back it up. Many dermatologists are convinced that this procedure works and use it routinely as part of their repertoire for treating their patients’ hair loss. PRP was first used by orthopedic surgeons to treat joint and tendon injuries with good success. Now, some doctors are using it to regrow hair. Since that time there have been a number of studies, although small that have shown positive benefit using trichoscans or serial photography.
So what does the process entail? To make PRP, your practitioner takes some of your blood, spins it to separate the platelets from the other cells, and then puts the platelets back into the liquid part of your blood (the plasma). Why does that matter? Because platelets have hundreds of specialized proteins called growth factors that aid healing. The PRP may be applied topically during micro needling or it may be injected into your scalp with a small needle. The idea is that the growth factors help to create or stimulate new hair follicles.
There’s no standard process yet. Your doctor may start with three treatments spaced about 6 to 8 weeks apart. After a few months, your hair could seem thicker and fuller than before. In one study, a large majority of people were happy with the results and said their hair improved. You might need a booster treatment 6 months later, when hair growth starts to slow down. The procedure is done in the office with little preparation except for washing your scalp and hair ahead of time.
Does this procedure work for all types of hair loss? If you are a male with a shiny scalp the procedure will not work. There has to be at least fine vellus hair to have any effect. Females with alopecia areata are not good candidates as the issue is autoimmune. If are interested in learning more, schedule a consultation to see if you are a good candidate. Most individuals are pleased with the results.
Ladies lets be honest, pleats on a blouse look good, but not so good around our mouth! Volbella® is a Hyaluronic acid product from Juvederm, specifically formulated to reduce fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth area, without adding significant volume. It is great for someone who wants to improve the lips, look natural without having a change in the overall size of the lip. Volbella®is injected with a very fine needle and can be focused on fine lines etched into the top layer of our skin.
