Benefits of Medical Aesthetics
At the Desert Wellness Center, we stay up to date with the latest advances in anti-aging and aesthetics so you don’t have to.

Our goal is always a natural look. Our procedures have no down time and leave you with smoother and fresher-looking skin.
Medical Aesthetics Can Help
What to Expect
Before starting any medical aesthetics procedure, one of our naturopathic physicians will meet with you for a free skin evaluation and consult.
Our age-corrective injectables are administered by a qualified naturopathic physician. Skin treatments are done by a licensed aesthetician in a spa-like environment.
We also offer a loyalty program through Brilliant Distinctions so you can earn rewards and points toward future treatments.
Treat yourself to a younger and more vibrant you!
Age-Corrective Injectables Available
Facial fillers add volume and lift to the cheeks, chin, or lips for a more youthful look. You’ll receive a quick injection of hyaluronic acid, known as Juvederm or Voluma. Injections take about 15 minutes, results are immediate, and the effects can last for 1-2 years. Juvederm also pairs nicely with Botox or PRP facial rejuvenation for an overall aesthetic lift.
Botox is a highly purified protein that relaxes the smooth muscles of facial expression that are responsible for wrinkles. It is the most popular non-surgical cosmetic procedure, with more than 20 years of data showing it is safe and effective to relieve fine lines, wrinkles, and even headaches. Botox can subtly reduce the signs of crow’s feet, furrow lines between the brow, and soften the fine lines around the mouth. It can both treat current wrinkles and prevent the formation of future ones!
PRP facial rejuvenation is a non-invasive procedure that harnesses the healing properties of your own blood cells to repair aged skin. At the Desert Wellness Center, we combine PRP with microneedling so that the PRP solution can be fed directly to the cells to increase blood flow and stimulate collagen production. We use only FDA-approved devices, including the Harvest SmartPrep PRP and SkinPen.
PRP facial treatments provide visible changes in wrinkles, acne scarring, and even age spots. 1-3 treatments are done, spaced 2-3 months apart, and there is no down time. Because it relies on your body’s own natural process, the results appear more natural than from treatments like Botox or Juvederm. Results will gradually take effect and can last for 2 years.
Nova threads are made of an absorbable material, polydioxanone (PDO). They are inserted just below the skin’s surface with a fine needle and remain there until they are fully absorbed by the body within 4 to 6 months. Their presence under the skin stimulates collagen synthesis, producing a more youthful appearance that lasts for 12 to 15 months.
We are thrilled to offer EZGel for anyone who wants the effects of a filler without injecting anything foreign into their body. EZGel is a 100% natural solution to reduce puffiness, wrinkles, and fine lines that is made from your own blood.
On the day of your procedure, your physician will do a blood draw and then process your blood to concentrate growth factors (to stimulate collagen), albumin (a healing protein), and fibrin (a protein that slows the release of growth factors once injected). The resulting gel can be injected anywhere you want more volume, smoothness, or lift.
Popular places to inject EZGel are under the eyes (for sagging, bags, or hollowing out), around the mouth (smoker lines), around the chin (marionette lines), or between the sides of the nose and mouth (nasolabial folds).
The treatment time is one hour, and recovery time is minimal. Most people get 2 treatments spaced 6 weeks apart, and the results last up to a year.
Skin Treatments Available
Micro-needling is a transformative aesthetic technique that uses a SkinPen to quickly ‘needle’ the skin and deliver an anti-aging, hydrating serum. The technique creates micro injury to the skin, which triggers the body’s natural healing response to deposit collagen. The SkinPen is FDA approved for anti-aging and scar reduction. It is powerful enough to be compared to laser treatments but safe enough to use in delicate areas like under the eyes and lips.
Micro-needling treatments are spaced 4-6 weeks apart for optimal outcome. Even one helps, but we often recommend a series of 3-6. The treatment can be combined with other services, like dermaplaning or a natural chemical peel. Micro-needling results in clear luminous skin that looks and feels younger.
A chemical peel is a topical application of a blended combination of natural acids that is customized to your skin analysis. It is completed in about 30 minutes, with light flaking afterward to allow for fresh new skin to be revealed. A micropeel will even out your skin tone, improve skin texture and pore size, minimize fine lines and wrinkles, reduce acne breakouts, and create a brighter complexion. It can be combined with SkinPen micro-needling or a dermaplane treatment for maximum benefits.
We proudly carry Eminence Organics line of skincare products, They are clean, green and AWESOME. No chemicals, no animal testing, and all natural ingredients that actually work. A staff favorite is the Bamboo Firming Fluid, a powerful serum that provides a natural retinol alternative and a plant stem cell hydrator to reverse the signs of aging while providing optimal moisture.
