Q&A

Favorite treatment? Filler is liquid gold! From giving the lips a boost to defining the cheeks and jaw, it's my favorite transformation tool. I love to surprise patients and let them know exactly how I've used filler myself!

Favorite products? Our Super Serum, because I put my heart and soul into it! It benefits everyone's skin - literally, and is so well tolerated. I also love our newest product from Anfisa, their Hydra-balm is super luxurious to apply. My skin loves it. 

Biggest vice? Binge-worthy reality shows, but not the new ones. I'm talking about the 2001 season of Amazing Race or the original Survivor. Hint: check Hulu.


Alyssa is a Licensed Esthetician who has loved skincare from an early age. Post-college she worked in marketing for skincare and beauty brands, gaining extensive knowledge on ingredients and products before deciding she wanted to get more hands-on in the field. She loves: helping you figure out your perfect home routine, performing stellar facial massages, and cleaning your pores with quick extractions. Having struggled with her skin her entire life, she strives to make every client love the skin that they’re in. 

THE FUN STUFF

Alyssa classifies herself as a relatively “indoorsy” person, who loves doing jigsaw puzzles, reading, and going to the movies.

Q&A

Favorite treatment? Is it cheating if I say the HydraFacial? To be more specific, the GlySal peel step. It’s such a quick and easy way to mix both AHA and BHA exfoliants, leaving you with glowing (albeit a little red) skin!

Favorite Product? Sunscreen in general. I love our Glowgetter tinted moisturizer for an everyday SPF, but find myself reaching for Sun Bum or, honestly, Trader Joe’s Face and Body Sunscreen on beach days.

Biggest Vice? Indian food. On the weekends you can find me spending way too much money on UberEats to get tikka masala delivered from 5 miles away, just so I can continue to hang out on my couch and watch TV.

Mia

My name is Mia, and I work as Vitality’s social media manager. My interest in social media started about 4 years ago and I had no idea at the time that I would be loving it as much as I do now! I’m super happy to be working with Vitality because I get to learn so much about treatments I have been interested in for a while. I have struggled with acne and confidence issues for as long as I can remember, and it’s hard to do jobs when you are fixated on your insecurities. I’ve seen (and experienced myself through treatments) how Vitality’s providers can make someone feel better about themselves in a matter of minutes, and it’s truly amazing to see. I am so honored to be a part of this team!

THE FUN STUFF

When Mia isn’t working, she can be found on the beach, hanging out with friends and family, or relaxing at home with her cat Zara, and sipping on a good cup of lavender/vanilla chai tea.

Q&A

Favorite treatment? I would say my favorite treatment is a chemical peel because it leaves your skin feeling so soft and smooth afterwards! It takes the glow from within and puts it on the outside too!

Favorite product? I absolutely LOVE anything by Aesop. All their products smell phenomenal, work amazing, and are fairly priced! I am all about natural and effective skincare.
