Skin Conditions REALITY

Aging: We are all aging! From our genetics to the sun to environmental pollutants to our lifestyle, all wreak havoc on our skin. From fine lines and wrinkles to dull skin to dryness to rough skin surface to redness to rosacea to acne scarring to adult acne to buildup of skin cells to age spots to pigmentation issues to broken red capillaries, to skin irregularities such as skin tags, cherry spots, we are all experiencing aging.

What can realistically be done to get our skin back to where we are “happy”. The answer is many things. You don’t have to go under the knife to reach your goals. The Aesthetics industry has come a long way in just a few years and today’s non-invasive procedures are a less expensive and safer alternative to get the results you are seeking.

Aging Reality: We didn’t age overnight, so we have to be realistic in timeframe and number of sessions that may be required. Whether this takes 3 appts, 6 appts, 10 appts you can get there. Where is there? When you personally look at your skin and feel that you have reached “happy” then you are there. From “there” maintain your skin with a monthly appointment. It’s that simple, really! But one thing to keep in mind is that aging happens quickly once it sets in, so don’t wait and wait or it will take that much longer to get to that happy place.

Acne: From teenagers to adults, acne is a very real condition that can and does happen and can be a real bummer. It’s the result of many things and seems to be increasing. Hormones do play a major role and as we know there are many more hormones in the foods that we eat today than there used to be.

Acne Reality: Being realistic acne is very dependent on many factors. And to be perfectly honest acne is one skin condition that does show improvement right from the start. Sure, it can take more than one session depending on the depth and whether or not we have scarring to contend with, but acne is extremely treatable. And we don’t buy into long-term use of physician prescribed retinol. That’s a drug and in many instances can do more harm than good. Results with retinol can be dramatic immediately but these drugs are wreaking havoc on your skin down the road. Pure retinol is the way to go, not drug retinol.

Pigmentation: Whether Darkened spots (hyper-pigmentation) or Lightened spots (hypo-pigmentation), these spots can be quite a nuisance. Do you have small spots or large spots? These spots are typically the results of hormones, sun and/or genetics.

Pigmentation Reality: These spots can be quite stubborn or fairly simple to treat. If you have very small darkened spots, we may just be able to remove them in a simple and quick session. If you have multiple darkened spots then likely we do some lightening/brightening treatments and products. And if you have melasma which is known as the pregnancy mask and is a large area of darkness than you need a good series of IPL PhotoFacials and and sometimes even a series of chemical peels will do the trick.  However, if you have HYPO-Pigmentation (white/light spots) then there is really nothing that can help. Unfortunately they are cells that no longer contain pigment and therefore there is no way to darken them.   Pigmentation issues are quite common and although difficult to treat, they can be.

Sensitive/Redness/Rosacea: These skin conditions are the results of so many factors that it’s truly hard to know but this condition is very reactionary. Reactionary is good and bad. The good part of reactionary is that positive results can come almost immediately. The bad part of reactionary is that we must be careful when treating this to go slow and somewhat test you as we go. Allergies are extremely important with this skin condition so that proper products are chosen and/or disqualified.

Sensitive/Redness/Rosacea Reality: Hands down this skin condition is screaming for the healing light of IPL and the results we have seen have been dramatic and very impressive. This is a PhotoFacial at it’s finest. This is delicate skin with many sensitivities and requires the absolute proper products for at home use to continue success. BUT, this is a very treatable skin condition and one that we’ve seen very quick and thorough results with.

See each category on the website for more insight on each of the advanced treatments we offer, but briefly…

IPL Intense Pulsed Light (PhotoFacial):  30 mins of laser light. You can think of it as healing from the bottom up. Results: Safe, powerful light absorbed by the skin stimulating natural rejuvenation and tissue repair resulting in glowing, healthy, radiant skin. Downtime is very minimal.

Oxygen Therapy: 40 mins of 98% oxygen infused into the layers of your skin. Oxygen will open your skin layers allowing the oxygen to penetrate deep and allow us to penetrate lots of amazing antioxidants, peptides, stem cells, etc. deep into these layers. Results: Improves overall health of cells and surrounding tissue.  You will scream WOW!

Micro Current Therapy: 40 mins of LIFTING. This treatment is known as the “Lunchtime Facelift” and is all about muscle re-education. Easiest way to think of this procedure is just like lifting weights and exercising your body to bring firmness and toning. This is the workout for your face. Results: Sculpting, Lifting and Toning of your facial and neck muscles.

Micro Dermabrasion: 40 minutes or Re-Surfacing.  Your skin is exposed to environmental elements every day. Over the years, the sun’s rays, pollution, and other damaging agents can take a toll on your skin. A microdermabrasion treatment can help reduce or eliminate the wrinkles and fine lines, “crow’s feet,” age spots, undesired pigmentation that may appear on the skin over time and is exceptional for acne scarring and cratering of the skin. Results: Similar to Chemical Peels with glowing skin and smooth surface texture.

DermaPen:   A new addition to the skin care industry. It’s MicroNeedling and its about rebuilding your collagen from the bottom up (collagen induction). With the rebuild we are filling in fine lines and wrinkles, eliminating scars and stretch marks, breaking down pigmentation and re-tightening and toning. It’s a full face refresher that can also be used on the neck, chest and other body parts.   Typically done in a series of 3 or as many as 6 at monthly intervals. Affordability with long-lasting results that we have only seen via expensive laser treatments until DermaPen.

Chemical Peels: Our PCA and Image Peels are known as the Cadillac of peels and with good reason! These peels drop deep into the layers of your skin and overturn all cells. From there, anything that was eventually going to come out will come out. Whether that be acne, pigmentation and even skin cancer cells. Results: Glowing Skin, Smooth Skin Texture and Even Skin Tone.

Skin Tightening:  Yes, you can build new collagen and get great lift!  With Skin Tightening the absolute key however is in maintenance appts.  You will be not only triggering the collagen you currenty have to start turning over quickly again as it did when you were younger, but you are also building new collagen. Its this new collagen you are building that also starts to turn over much more quickly when you follow thru with maintenance appts every 6 months.  If you are not willing to follow thru with six-month maintenance appts, you are just throwing your money away!  Maintenance appts are KEY!  You start with a 3-series and then 1 appt only for maintenance.

Skin Irregularity Removal: Yes, we can remove broken capillaries and cherry spots and skin tags and pigmentation/age spots and much more. One time treatment is usually all that is required.
