Many of the clients who come to see Jill Garden, The Graivier Center spa director, Master Licensed Medical Aesthetician and Laser Specialist, are frustrated and desperate. The physical and emotional effects of facial acne have taken a toll on them. Often, they are doubtful anything will be different from other treatments they have tried.
Utilizing her more than 20 years of experience and extensive medical knowledge, Jill has developed a line of products to treat adult and teen acne called Aesthetic Elements Clinical Skin Care.
Depending on budget, Jill creates an individual treatment plan for each patient. We chose to explore a four-product treatment plan that consisted of a facial cleanser, scrub, benzoyl peroxide mask, and moisturizer, which costs approximately $150. The products work to cleanse and balance the pH levels in the skin and are designed to be used as a part of a daily routine in an effort to maximize results. Bacteria grows and regenerates every 24 hours, so it’s imperative the program is followed daily to keep the skin clean and hydrated.
She also offers an even more affordable treatment plan that is essentially a three-step microdermabrasion that consists of cleansing, pore expressing, and an oxygen topical. This treatment can be continued every two to six weeks as needed during the process. Most patients see results within a few weeks and with continued use and commitment to the program, they can remain acne-free with fewer breakouts and remarkably healthier skin. The line has an incredible success rate.
Jill’s manner is gentle and understanding. She is so easy to stay in constant contact with. She answered all of my quick questions with ease and was very helpful in making sure I understood everything.
