Given a chance, what woman would say no to the opportunity to improve their appearance and change a few things in just a subtle, cosmetic manner? Most would jump at the chance. It’s natural and normal to want to soften those wrinkles, add volume to your cheeks, or plump a bit of filler into the lips. As women age, it gets harder to keep that youthful look, and many women start to enhance their appearance.
We always want to look our best selves. However, not everyone has the perfect skin and body. Often facial problems like acne and wrinkles can worry you and reduce your confidence level to a great extent. It can affect your personal as well as professional life. Yet, there are options to taking that next step.
Navila Medi Spa is the one-stop solution for all your appearance-related worries. Started by Kristine Evangelista and Nahla Wang, the two women are on a quest to put Nahla on the map. Whether you want to treat your acne, get a laser hair removal treatment, skin lifting, skin tightening, or skin resurfacing treatment, we have experienced professionals that will work their magic on you and give you the appearance you always wanted.
When Kristine and Nahla had a moment, they spoke with Gemma Magazine about Navila, the services, that the med spa offers and plans for the future.
What inspired the both of you to start Navila Med Spa?
It’s very rewarding. We believe that if you love what you do, you care for each of the patients that will sit in our chair. The business side aspects will just follow naturally. We like exploring new treatments and products and how we can incorporate them into the demand of our clients.
What are some of the services that Navila offer?
We offer a variety of services depending upon your individual needs. For example, we offer Botox and Xeomin to soften wrinkles (a popular service), CO2 is for acne or acne scars, Dermal fillers to enhance cheekbones, and Endymed Pro (face lifting, and skin tightening in a non-invasive manner) are all effective and frequent requests.
What is Morpheusus8?
Morpheus8 is a safe and minimally invasive modular RF fractional solution for full-body subdermal adipose remodeling — sagging cheeks, deep lines, and even fat from your face. It can also treat any part of your body. This treatment is basically the best you can get to reduce the signs of aging.
What makes Navila stand out from other spas that are on the LA map?
Navila believes in the community rather than competition. We believe that all medical spas have one goal for our patients: for them to be happy and have the opportunity to experience all the unique services all of us can render or offer.
Can you tell us a bit about the face and body contouring process?
Yes of course! For the face, we have ultherapy which is great in stimulating collagen formation. It’s an ultrasound-guided machine. It’s a great tool for contouring the jawline and lifting the face. Ultherapy is the only FDA-cleared, non-invasive procedure that lifts the neck, chin, and brow, and improves lines and wrinkles on the upper chest. For the body, we have radiofrequency for tightening. This treatment is popular for the abdomen, arms, and thighs.
Girls are starting so young these days with procedures, is it still possible to start later in life?
It’s amazing how girls nowadays started taking care of themselves so timely. For us it’s the best investment if we invest in ourselves, whether it’s for beauty or learning something new to improve our skills. Of course, no one is late in improving oneself. We have experienced a lot of patients asking us “is it too late?” And we know in our hearts it’s so inspiring to hear their stories about what moved them to come to us for a consultation and procedures.
Is one of you more creative, while the other is more business?
Nahla is on the business side definitely. She has a strong background in business and brand development. Kristine is on the creative side because she designs protocols and her artistry is being displayed in what she does as an injector.
What is your ultimate goal with Navila?
Our ultimate goal is to raise awareness to others about their innate beauty. We are here to help them realize and enhance their natural beauty and then tailor it for them. We envision Navila as a part of everyone’s lifestyle. You can expect more functional treatments and beauty and skincare innovations that can be used in the comfort of your home.
Where did you come up with the name “Navila”? It’s beautiful.
Navila means being bold and fearless. The name wants to speak for the women behind it, women who are nonconventional and strong. And we want to live it, project it, and share it to spread inspiration and positivity to others.
