HER PHILOSOPHY ON COSMETIC DERMATOLOGY
“In order to create a skin rejuvenation plan, I begin with a consultation to determine one’s individual concerns and budget. If budget is a concern an inexpensive, effective approach is to implement the base of the pyramid below. Tretinoin (Retin A) for example helps with cell turn over and should be used for life. It’s best to invest into products that are distributed from your dermatologist. Science-based research is key when investing into your skincare in order to get the most effective treatments.”

She recently became certified in cupping therapy. Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. People get it for many purposes, including to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and well-being, and as a type of deep-tissue massage.
A modern version of cupping uses a rubber pump to create the vacuum inside the cup. You might get 3-5 cups in your first session. Or you might just try one to see how it goes. You can discuss options with Vone at your next massage on adding this service.
