Spa de Larissa: Specialized Treatments Turn Back the Clock

With the right arsenal of anti-aging weapons, a woman can pursue her right—at any age—to achieve an outward manifestation of the beauty that lies within. While an at-home regimen for slowing the clock and enhancing attractiveness is the foundation of this pursuit, a regular trip to an expert esthetician for age-defying skincare can keep the evidence of maturing skin as invisible as possible.

Turning back time is a specialty at Spa de Larissa. “I can help women avoid plastic surgery with VitaLift, an advanced device designed to give an electro-lifting, non-surgical facelift,” says spa owner Larissa Smolen. VitaLift uses an electrochemical, bipolar microcurrent that targets specific facial muscles. The signal initiates a gentle muscular stimulation, as with any normal exercise, and tones the 55 muscles of the face. “It’s like a trip to the gym for your face,” says Smolen, who has been an esthetician for more than 20 years.

Spa de Larissa’s line of private-label products helps to support and maintain the results produced by VitaLift and Vita Peel, an advanced micro-exfoliation system that stimulates cellular regeneration of the skin, fades pigmentation marks and age spots, and reduces wrinkles and scars.

Other treatments available include an anti-aging and anti-wrinkle facial; problem skin facial; back facial; face massage; eye treatment; waxing; and a “Black Tie” facial, a treatment with concentrated collagen and 24 karat gold.

Location: Airport Professional Center, 3811 Airport Rd. N., Ste. 201-B, Naples. For more information or to make an appointment, call 239-571-9900 or visit
