New! Microneedling With Desiree

As a acupuncturist specializing in holistic rejuvenation and wellness, I am excited to offer a new service to help my patients feel their best.

Microneedling is one of the earlier forms of acupuncture. The 7 Star Hammer or Plum Blossom Needle was used since ancient times for healing, rejuvenation and even hair loss.

Dermal pens are a modern version of these tools. I use a medical grade, professional use only device for my patients. This device penetrates the skin to the ideal depth to create collagen induction and tighten and lift the skin.

What Can Microneedling Treat?

  • Acne Scars & Other Scars
  • Fine Lines & Moderate Wrinkles
  • Pore Size
  • Texture & Tone
  • Photo Aging & Sun Damage
  • Pigmentation Imbalances
  • Hair Loss
  • Dry Skin

What is included with each session?

With every session, medical grade hyaluronic serum is applied to your skin to increase hydration and skin healing. I also include a numbing cream soothing facial mask.

Get Glowing Skin

You may upgrade your treatment with Plant Stem Cell serums to address specific concerns such as under eye discoloration and drooping, pigmentation imbalances, & skin firming for additional fee.

As always please reach out with any questions or to book your free consultation.

See you soon.

Cheers,

Desiree

Dry Skin Brushing For Immune Health

Dry Brushing

It is well known that the skin is the largest organ in the body, and is responsible for one-fourth of the body’s detoxification each day, also making it one of the most important elimination organs. Toxicity can gather beneath the skin’s surface from such common influences such as improper pH levels in soaps, skin creams, antiperspirants, and foods.  Plus synthetic fibers worn next to the skin with any of them may contribute to a variety of skin problems and conditions.

When you do dry skin brushing, you help your lymph system to clean itself of the toxins that collect in the lymph glands. You use a simple technique to improve the surface circulation on the skin and keep the pores of the skin open, encouraging your body’s discharge of metabolic wastes, resulting in an improved ability to combat bacteria, while helping your skin to look and feel healthier and more resilient.  Skin brushing is a perfect self-care treatment.  You may use either a body brush or spa gloves. For best results, always wash the brush or gloves after each use. This is an excellent treatment to do right before an epsom salt bath.

Benefits:

  • Tightens skin
  • Helps digestion
  • Reduces cellulite
  • Stimulates circulation
  • Increases cell renewal
  • Cleans lymphatic system
  • Removes dead skin layers
  • Strengthens immune system

How to dry skin brush:

  • Begin with your feet and brush vigorously in circular motions.
  • Continue brushing up your legs.
  • Proceed to your hands and arms.
  • Brush your entire back and abdomen area, shoulders and neck.
  • Use circular counter-clockwise strokes on the abdomen.
  • Lightly brush the breasts, avoiding the nipples.
  • Brush upwards on the back and down from the neck. Better yet, have a friend, spouse or family member brush your back.

Easy Savory Sweet Potato Breakfast Bowl

Savory Sweet Potato Breakfast Bowl

Sometimes you just need a quick and easy breakfast with no drama. This is a shredded garnet yam pan-fried in avocado oil until soft. Topped with avocado of course. Sprinkled with Trader Joe’s Mushroom salt, Himalayan Sea Salt, Yellow Bird Jalapeno sauce and black cumin seeds (the smaller black dots) and black sesame seeds. Black cumin is anti-inflammatory, helps to lower LDL cholesterol, lower blood pressure, and lower blood glucose. It also happens to taste good.

Ingredients:

1 Yam shredded

1 Tablespoon Avocado Oil

Broccolini

1/2 Avocado

1/2 teaspoon Black Sesame Seeds

1/2 teaspoon Black Cumin Seeds

1 Teaspoon Trader Joe’s Mushroom Salt Powder

Yellow Bird Jalepeno Sauce or Sriracha to garnish

Method:

Peel and shred yam into long threads.

Pan fry yam shreds in avocado oil on medium heat stirring constantly until soft.

Toss in broccolini and cook until tender.

Sprinkle in mushroom salt.

Place in bowl and top with sesame and cumin seeds and serve with Sriracha and sea salt.

Fried eggs would also be great as a topping.

Enjoy!
