    Micro-needling Treatment with Dr Tess of Beverly Hills

    By: | Tags: , , , , , , ,

    Micro-Needling (also referred to as collagen induction therapy or CIT) is a skin therapy that involves puncturing the skin using a grouping of tiny sterile needles.

    Healing with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy

    By: | Tags: , , , ,

    Healing Damaged Tissue Recent advances in PRP technology have made it possible for Dr. Tess to promote healing, reduce inflammation and speed recovery without surgery. When activated in the body, platelets in the blood release regenerative cells known as “growth factors.” PRP contains several types of growth factors that naturally stabilize and repair tissue while helping to form new, healthy blood cells. Without PRP, injured tissues are often unable to repair themselves because they lack adequate blood supply. By using PRP, Dr. Tess is able to provide the body with the […]

But dietary imbalances and stress also cause flare-ups. “Acne” in […]

Treated veins tend to fade within a few weeks, although occasionally it may take up to two months to […]

    Stretch marks are perhaps one of the things that make summer and wearing swimwear uncomfortable. True to their name, stretch marks result from the force of stretching on your skin. They are actually a form of scarring that is usually associated with rapid weight gain – during pregnancy for example. They can also occur as a result of rapid growth during puberty, and are occasionally associated with muscle building and bulking up. Stretch marks can be found anywhere on your body, but they’re most common on your breasts, upper arms, […]
