A totally grammable and groundbreaking dermatology office in West Hollywood. 

Ok, so getting your laser skin treatments just got a whole lot cuter thanks to Facile Dermatology + Boutique in West Hollywood. Facile offers everything from a custom skincare regimen, laser therapy, facial peels, injectable fillers, IV infusion, and vitamin injections - ah-mazing. You can check out their full menu of services for the full deets.

I went in for my initial consultation yesterday, and the interior is NEXT LEVEL! It totally removes the old school, bland doctor's office vibe and contributes a fresh take on cosmetic dermatology. I was welcomed by Allison, who checked me in as I got acquainted with the space. I sat in their uber cute waiting room (designed by Lifestyle LA) while flipping through the latest Violet Grey issue as I waited for my appt.

Once my name was called, I walked over to the treatment room where I met Dr. Nancy Samoltiswho is a notable MD and board certified dermatologist. We discussed my #skingoals and targeted treatments for my concerns which are redness, discoloration, and dark spots. Nancy and I decided to go with the XcelV laser therapy akaThe Facile Laser and I booked my treatment for the following day. They sent me off with a love package consisting a customized face regimen dedicated to my skin concerns. Facile actually has their own line of specialty skincare products crafted by Nancy, which they sell in their boutique section.

I went back the next day for my treatment (I have never had laser therapy before so I was honestly a little nervous!!) Nancy made me feel super comfortable and ensured me that I would love the results for my skin. The Facile Laser treatment was fairly quick - it lasted a total of 15 minutes. The laser felt like warm raindrops on my face and was virtually painless! The heat from the laser is meant to shrink tiny blood vessels + stimulate collagen, and can be done every 2 weeks. The best part? NO DOWN TIME - woo! After the treatment I IMMEDIATELY saw results. My dark spots had faded and my skin looked brighter and more even overall. I can fully say I'm addicted and I'll be coming back for more.

I'm SO excited about my initial experience with Facile and I wanted to share the love with you guys. I seriously recommend going for a treatment. Oh, and the interior photo opp ;)

Making waves in new activewear. A new 2016 means getting your ass in shape - right?!! Well cute workout clothes always seem to motivate me to move a little more. I recently discovered Varley, a contemporary lifestyle active brand based out of London and Los Angeles. I am obsessed with their Sofia Double Zipper Leggings that come in multiple colors and can easily transition from your workout through the remainder of the day.

You can view the lookbook HERE and you can shop the collection either on their site or on cult favorites like Revolve and Asos. x
