"I have brought back a lot of the new techniques to be sure that we could offer the latest in skin rejuvenation, augmentation, and laser services," said Parent.
Peninsula Medical Cosmetics also features a blast from the past for the men who want to experience what is was like in the "Good old days." "We have an amazing Aesthetician here who does an incredible straight razor, hot lather shave with the Old Sage rub like your grandpa or great grandpa use to get when they wanted a little pampering," explained Parent. Aesthetician Delainie Burford graduated from the prestigious Paul Mitchell School of Aesthetics in California and is proud to have brought her professional talents home to the Peninsula.
