Spa De Larissa
Larissa Smolen, a licensed esthetician with 15 years of experience and owner of Spa De Larissa, in Naples, offers various facials for treating stress, aging skin, and skin problems such as rosacea (pronounced roh-zay-sha). Smolen, an expert in treating rosacea developed a specially formulated mask, facial and a supplement that help clients with the often misdiagnosed and misunderstood skin disorder that affects the face, particularly the cheeks, nose, chin and forehead.
Smolen’s full range of professional private label brand of anti-aging and corrective skincare products (Daniel Tibel) for all skin types was personally formulated in collaboration with modern European laboratories to help support and maintain the results that her clients achieve in her spa. “Regarding my products that support the healing of rosacea, medical evidence suggests that rosacea can be controlled, and flare-ups reduced with good ongoing facial skin care and treatment. Two of my topical products and a supplement are very effective for the 70 percent of my clients who have mild to severe rosacea. Based on a blend of plants such as calendula, herbs, fruit enzymes and other ingredients formulated by Smolen and the laboratories she works with, the topical products soothe the skin. They also work on eczema,” says Smolen.
The flower petals of the calendula plant (Calendula officinalis) have high amounts of plant-based antioxidants that protect cells from being damaged by free radicals and appear to fight inflammation and bacteria. Azulene is the active ingredient of chamomile and works to sooth and repair skin, keeping it soft and healthy.
Her beetroot-based supplement contains powerful antioxidants which protect the body from free radicals. A natural detoxifier that purifies the blood and makes the skin glow, beetroot juice reduces internal inflammation, calms the skin and is beneficial for fighting boils and pimples.
The spa also offers microdermabrasion, an intensive lymphatic drainage massage with collagen, an eye treatment for fine lines, dark circles and puffiness, waxing, and a non-surgical facelift, which Smolen describes as an electro-lifting treatment that is a virtual workout for the 55 muscles of the face. “It’s very effective for sagging skin,” she says.
