However the spa focuses on a preventative and proactive approach to maintaining long-term health and urges clients to start making it a priority early on. “It’s not a one-day thing,” said Jeff, of Nova Spa. “We’re getting patients in when they’re young because they want to prevent looking like their parents and grandparents at their age.” Nova Spa’s anti-aging facial treatments stimulate collagen production while resurfacing treatments remove bacteria and renew the skin.
