This summer, esthetician Veronica Taylor is bringing six new treatments to her Southampton-based Skin by Veronica.

And while they aren’t cheap, the results may be worth the sticker shock.

A 60-minute organic, medical-grade CBD facial will cost $300, enhanced with “strong anti-inflammatory peptides, vitamins and amino acids delivered through a proprietary delivery system,” according to a press release. Using hemp-derived cannabinoid extract and antiviral holistic healer sea buckthorn oil, the mask is used to help heal damage caused by the sun and environmental stress.

The ultimate anti-aging, rose stem cell serum is loaded with “age-reversing peptides, stem cells, and powerful growth factors, which encourages the regeneration of new surface cells for radiant, supple, younger-looking skin” for $1,000 per 8-ounce bottle.

For $600 to $2,000, nano- or micro-needling creates several micro-channels in the skin surface to promote new collagen formation, scarring breakdown and cell proliferation, the release said. “This cell multiplication process results in the formation of new tissue layers of elastin and collagen fibers as well as in new capillaries for an improved texture, tone and glow,” it said.

HA Clinical, Hyaluronic Acid is performed in conjunction with the micro needling — a “phenomenally effective concentrate” that retains 1,000 times its own volume in moisture.

“The deeply penetrating, intense hydration protects fragile skin from the environmental pollutants that cause premature aging while smoothing existing fine lines and wrinkles,” the release said.

Advanced adipose-derived stem cells, obtained from lyophilized healthy human tissue, are at the heart of AAPE, a “cutting edge anti-aging treatment,” which also uses Biopelle stem cells and growth factor from snails. Each vile costs $350, including a mask.

Another topical treatment is EGF-DNA, a cosmetic concentrate that turns back the clock for $150 per add-on. Most effective when used before and after micro-peel and laser procedures to maximize recovery, it repairs skin tissue and stimulates the skin’s own cell renewal properties.

“This treatment is concluded by application of the Le Mieux Bio-Cell Mask,” the release said. “Le Mieux Bio Cell + Mask is the most innovative of its kind in the skincare market. Made of highly specialized Freeze Dried Marine Collagen Mask, it incorporates wound care technology for healing and soothing while dramatically reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

“In just 15 to 20 minutes, see amazing results that you thought could never be possible from a mask,” it continued. “Without a single doctor’s visit, without a single injection, your skin will look incredibly brighter, firmer, and smooth.”
