Attacking Acne

During this weirdest of years, who knows if our kids will be able to go back to school in person, or whether they will be able to stay there if they do go. But if you have a teenager, one thing is for sure — he or she has acne. For the lucky few, this… Read More »


Age Spots, Come into the Intense Light

Living in sunny Mount Pleasant and so close to miles of beautiful beaches, we’ve all had our share of sun exposure. And now we have the sun spots to show for it! Otherwise, your skin may have some acne scarring, hyperpigmentation, even rosacea, and you wonder what you can do to improve it. At AesthetiSpa… Read More »


Tune in To This Radio Station for Unwanted Fat

Summers in Charleston and Mt. Pleasant aren’t complete without driving along the shore with some beach tunes blaring. But at AesthetiSpa, we’re more interested in other radiofrequency energy, namely the sort that can put the whammy on fat cells.

Radiofrequency Energy — Not Just for Your Car

While cruising in your car on the Coastal Highway on a beautiful July day, you may think that’s as far as radiofrequency energy goes, playing Help Me Rhonda on your car stereo.

Your Hands Don’t Belong in a Horror Movie

As we age, one of the scarier areas is the backs of our hands. As our skin thins with age, coupled with the extensive sun exposure, the backs of our hands can become a highway of raised tendons and blood vessels. It looks as if our skin is about the thickness, and consistency, of crepe… Read More »


Treat Your Face to a HydraFacial

Traditional facials can be sort of a mixed message. They feel very soothing and calming, but then all of the sudden come the extractions. Um, ouch! At AesthetiSpa, we think our HydraFacials are a better way to facial. Using a unique, patented Vortex-Fusion to exfoliate, extract, and hydrate the skin, the spiral design of the… Read More »


PRP Goes One Better — PRFM

If you’re reading our AesthetiSpa blog, you’ve surely heard of PRP, platelet-rich plasma. In PRP, a blood sample is taken, placed in a centrifuge and the red blood cells and white blood cells are removed. What’s left is a serum with concentrated blood platelets.
