"I’m looking forward to enjoying the beautiful South Florida weather with my family and spending time outdoors (with my SPF on!) after enduring the harsh New England winters. My family and I are looking forward to exploring all the outdoor activities South Florida has to offer."
Hydrafacial is a treatment which uses a four step process (cleansing and exfoliation, acid peel, extractions, and hydration) to restore healthy skin. It targets many skin issues including sun damage, redness, blemishes, wrinkles and oily skin. The procedure can be done on any skin type and there is no downtime with immediate results. The Hydrafacial leaves skin radiant and restored with just one treatment. 
Molluscum contagiosum is a viral skin infection caused by the poxvirus common in children under the age of ten. The virus presents itself as small, round, dome shaped bump or papule that can be either white, pink or brown. The bumps can range in size and often cluster together. Molluscum can be spread directly by skin to skin contact, indirectly by shared items like towels, and auto-inoculation (spreading from one site to another) by scratching or shaving. Parents are advised to bathe children separately and not to share towels. Lesions will resolve on their own but can last several months to years. Treating the molluscum will help the lesions resolve faster and prevent further spreading however it does not prevent new lesions from appearing. Treatment options include physically removing each lesion with either cryotherapy where liquid nitrogen is used to burn the lesions or cantharidine solution which creates a blister and removes the molluscum. Both of these treatment options may permanently scar skin. Other treatment options include applying topical Retin-A to hasten resolution of lesions.
