I get it. You are too busy to even be reading this blog. So let’s cut to the chase and let you in on a genius medspa secret—combination treatments! Strategically pairing your treatments not only saves time but also provides incredible synergistic benefits, enhancing your results for your most gorgeous skin ever.
I love that word, synergy. It refers to the magic that happens when two treatments combine for more awesome results than if you were to undergo the treatments separately. In other words, two is often better than one in the cosmetic world!
For a luminous, head-turning complexion, here are three of our favorite synergistic pairings:
Dermal Fillers & Botox
It’s hard to beat the all-star combination of Botox® and dermal fillers. These two injectables treat different areas of the face, so they pair perfectly to reveal an overall revitalized, younger-looking appearance with minimal downtime. Botox smooths lines on the upper areas of the face, including persistent forehead lines and crow’s feet, while dermal fillers replenish lost volume and diminish lines and wrinkles around the mouth, cheeks, nose, and chin. Together, these two injectables can reveal months of radiant rejuvenation.
Forever Young BBL & SkinTyte II
Forever Young BBL™ photofacials bathe the skin in intense light to improve a bevy of pigmentation concerns, including age spots, freckles, sun spots, redness, and more for a more evenly-toned, radiant complexion. SkinTyte II™ treats skin with advanced infrared energy to tighten and smooth targeted areas on any area of the body with no downtime. Combined, these two non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatments are a perfect pair for revealing brighter and tighter skin!
Microneedling & Chemical Peels or PRP
I love microneedling because it’s such an easy treatment for refreshing your skin with minimal downtime. Microneedling creates tiny channels in the skin, spurring new collagen to grow and fill in those tiny holes, improving the health and appearance of skin. Having a chemical peel prior to microneedling intensifies this renewing effect, revealing deeper revitalization. PRP (platelet-rich plasma) also pairs well with microneedling. PRP is a concentrated portion of your own blood that is bursting with growth factors and healing properties for intensely revitalized, stunning skin. When applied topically following a microneedling session, the PRP benefits increase due to enhanced absorption.

According to the World Health Organization, life expectancy is at an all-time high. Do you know what this means? Aside from the fact that we’re living longer than ever before, we’re also feeling younger than ever, a phenomenon known as the “age gap.” Particularly strong among women, the age gap is influencing the beauty world in exciting ways.
Here are 3 fascinating cosmetic trends to watch in relation to the age gap:
Well-aging is replacing anti-aging.
We may be getting older, but we aren’t feeling older, and we certainly do not appreciate being told that aging is bad. Rather than “anti-aging” products and treatments, we are increasingly being drawn to “well aging” concepts. Well aging is about looking fabulous at every stage of life, not running away from yourself and hiding your age. The woman who ages well seeks products and treatments that truly renew and improve the health of her skin, which is the perfect segway to trend #2…
We expect results.
Experience has taught us that science is king, and we have a firm grasp on the research to know that not all med spa treatments are equal. At AVIE!, we offer only research-based products and treatments that provide real results, triggering new collagen production and revitalizing skin naturally. Our leading selection of results-based treatments includes BBL photo facials, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) facials and facelifts, Halo™ laser skin renewal, microtherapy, Ultherapy®, and much more.
Millennials are getting in on the action.
Aging well isn’t just for older people. It turns out that one of the hottest preoccupations (or obsessions) among 20- and 30-somethings, according to NewBeauty magazine, is cosmetic treatments as preventive measures. I believe you are never too young to take care of your skin, which is why I offer such an extensive selection of treatments to help women and men of all ages. From acne treatments like Forever Clear BBL™ to HydraFacial®, you will find exactly what you need at AVIE!.
Age is just a number! I can’t wait to help bring out your absolute best this year, regardless of your age! For more information on our selection of treatments, call 703.870.3844 or click here to schedule a consultation today.
Anti-aging is a funny concept. When you really think about it, no one is against aging. Technically speaking, we age every moment we are alive—and the alternative is not so appealing! But all kidding aside, the “anti-aging” concept has received some serious backlash in recent months from the beauty industry.
Allure magazine recently declared that it would no longer use the term in its articles, choosing to embrace aging as a positive. Global Cosmetic Industry, another prominent magazine in the beauty world, also questioned the term, calling for a “new approach.”
We love aging at AVIE! We’ve dedicated our lives to bringing out the best in every person who walks through our doors, regardless of their age. Our mission is to celebrate exactly where you are in life by enhancing your assets with a carefully selected assortment of leading treatments.
Whether you’d like to revitalize your skin with platelet-rich plasma (PRP), rejuvenate your eyes with an eyelift, or hone a few “trouble spots” with CoolSculpting®, we will partner with you until you are satisfied with your results. Your success is our success, and we won’t rest until you feel confident, radiant and thoroughly renewed.
Everyone deserves to feel their absolute best. We can’t wait to help you achieve yours! Call 703.870.3844 or click here to schedule your consultation today.
Double your treatments, double your results! I’m referring to the rising popularity of combination beauty treatments. According to a recent survey by the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons (AAFPRS), combination therapies are booming in the beauty industry. This means that more and more people are strategically doubling up cosmetic treatments in one session—i.e., scheduling a microdermabrasion before a chemical peel.
Combining treatments has many advantages. For one, in the world of beauty, two is often better than one! Many aesthetic treatments are complementary and can enhance overall results. It’s the main reason we perform microneedling before platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatments. Priming the skin with tiny needles helps the skin to better absorb PRP, intensifying your results.
Time is also a major factor. People want to reduce signs of aging, but they don’t want to spend all their time doing it! Combining treatments is an easy way to save time in addition to getting the most out of your treatments.
As experts in aesthetic medicine, we know every possible combination in the book and can help you formulate the most effective plan to meet your unique needs. What’s your perfect pairing? Find out by calling 703.870.3844 or clicking here to schedule your consultation today!
I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw a picture of Buffy the Vampire Slayer paired with a recent Allure story on Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP), a super hot and highly effective anti-aging treatment. In case you’re not familiar, PRP is a concentrated portion of your own blood that can rejuvenate your skin and hair. As evidenced by that startling picture of Buffy wielding a stake, the world is a bit intimidated by the healing power of blood! But I assure you, PRP treatments aren’t scary or even remotely related to vampires. (Need I even say that?)
What a lot of people don’t realize is that PRP has been around for years, and there’s nothing “creepy” about it. For decades, oral surgeons have loved PRP for its ability to reduce infection risk and speed healing for dental implants, and sports doctors have relied on PRP’s restorative properties for athletic injuries.
Another thing that may surprise you about PRP is that it’s a fairly quick and easy treatment to get; it takes only minutes to draw and prepare your blood in our medspa. The actual application of PRP to your skin or hair is no longer than your typical facial.
At AVIE!, we love PRP, but go a step further to provide PRFM, or Platelet-Rich Fibrin Matrix, the next generation of PRP in its purest form. Unlike PRP, PRFM filters out red and white blood cells, resulting in a more concentrated portion of blood platelets and fibrin matrix for slower-acting and longer-lasting rejuvenation. To meet your unique needs, we offer three types of PRPM therapies—PRP Facial, PRP Facelift, and PRP Hair Restoration.

Did you know that one of my favorite skin rejuvenation treatments here at AVIE! made the cover of Allure magazine last month? Apparently, skin treatments using PRP, an ingredient found in your very own blood, are all the rage these days in cosmetic treatments. And why shouldn’t they be?
PRP, which stands for Platelet Rich Plasma, is a powerhouse nutrient derived from your own blood that can revitalize and “heal” your skin when applied topically or injected. At AVIE!, we love PRP, and offer PRP Facials and PRP Facelifts for restoring a luster and vibrance to your skin.
The PRP Facial in Leesburg involves the topical application of PRP to your face, followed by a micro-needling treatment to enhance your skin’s absorption of the PRP. A PRP Facial can even out your skin’s tone and texture, and leave your skin looking clearer.
For more intense rejuvenation, the PRP Facelift at AVIE! involves the injection of PRP into your skin to enhance its overall tone and texture. For even more rejuvenating benefits, we offer the PRP Facelift Plus, which adds dermal fillers to the mix, restoring facial volume and smoothing away lines and wrinkles. Essentially, the PRP Facelift Plus is a potent combination of injectables for long-lasting results.
For beauty with the most natural ingredients you can get, tap into your body’s restorative powers. To learn more about the benefits of PRP, call us today for a consultation at 703.870.3844 .
