Is a time honored philosophy of healing that incorporates the therapeutic elements of nature encouraging the inherent ability of the body to establish, maintain and restore health and overall wellness.
The process of healing includes symptoms which are an expression of the life force attempting to heal itself. The skin is a mirror reflecting overall health, and a vital organ indicating internal wellness by observation of its functional status.
At Naturophoria, we avoid the application of harsh chemicals and procedures that may cause harm to the skin or may suppress the natural healing process and biological functions of the skin. Rather, we employ techniques, modalities and products that encourage overall skin homeostasis.
We take great pride in our work and will discuss treatments and offer recommendations with a preliminary consultation virtually or in person. For your convenience you may schedule a new client consultation & Skin Wellness Assessment by visiting our appointment section.
Our Skin Wellness Assessment is the very first appointment for new clients - This extensive and informative session offers a procedural approach in scientific skin evaluation. We combine our decades of experience in aesthetics, dermatological skin care, corneotherapy and naturopathy. Along with the data from our diagnostic equipment- we design a comprehensive program for skin wellness, clinic treatment and home care regimes.
We believe that the correct assessment of the skin is a thorough one - Our assessment technique and program focuses on the importance of an in-depth, and methodical approach towards skin care product and treatment regimes.
Many skin conditions that surface in time originate from the deeper skin layers and are difficult to confirm with the human eye. The Observ 520 device exposes those conditions using a patented skin fluorescence and polarized light illumination technology. Utilizing this unique technology - we are able to both qualify and quantify anomalies that may present as skin conditions. Combined with Naturophoria's assessment techniques and philosophy - the goal is to provide education to our clients regarding the their "state of skin" and how to best care for their individual needs. Our multi pronged approach gives careful consideration to targeted treatments, compatible product recommendations, and tailored home care regimes.
Skin assessment is our forte- Naturophoria's trademark TeleEsthetics Skin Wellness program helps to determine an approach, products and treatment to address your skin care concerns.
