On December 27, 1997 I was admitted to Chandler Hospital with diabetic ketoacidosis and pneumonia one year after being diagnosed with adult onset diabetes. Within hours, I went into septic shock and was placed on the ventilator. While on the vent, I developed blood clots that lead to dry gangrene. I awoke from the coma weeks later to a half dead forearm and hand.
I went through a long healing process and 18 surgeries over the next several years leaving me with a multitude of scar tissue. It was during this time, that I discovered the healing benefits of LED light therapy. LED changed my life forever! It softened my scar tissue and helped to heal the extensive nerve damage. In addition, it was extremely beneficial over many years as I slowly detoxed myself from the massive amounts of pain medications and began living my life again.
This led me to learning about IPL photofacial and skin rejuvenation which in turn became Turn Back Time Day Spa, LLC in 2008. This business opened with just one technician and has over the years grown immensely. In 2016, I opened up Turn Back Time Wellness Clinic, LLC with two partners who were long term clients and we added RF technology with ThermiSmooth™ skin tightening and body sculpting, ThermiVa™ vaginal rejuvenation and Vivace™ RF micro-needling.
In 2021, we were thrilled to add our Tetra™ CO2 skin resurfacing to our treatment options which gives us amazing results, including breaking up my scar tissue in my elbow giving me back 100% range of motion! I finally have found a treatment I can safely treat my muscle & skin grafts with!
