Do You Play This Mirror Game?

posted by gmilner

Maybe you’ve tried to ignore those lines and wrinkles staring back at you in the mirror. Or, maybe you’ve studied how to hold your head just right so that the sagging around your mouth and jaw line aren’t really that noticeable.


Do You Play This Mirror Game?

Do You Play This Mirror Game?

It’s a funny game we play to keep from facing a simple truth: we all age.


With modern life becoming increasingly stressful combined with the massive consumption of processed foods, hormonal changes are occurring earlier than in your mother or your grandmother’s time!


Collagen and elastin are breaking down faster to create:


  • Premature sagging
  • Premature Wrinkling
  • Even Acne!


The good news is you don’t have to stand by and watch it happen.


As you know, there are many anti-aging therapies that can effectively slow down and even turn back Father Time.


Laser therapy, considered the “gold” standard in anti-aging, actually heats and melts the skin to encourage the production of collagen. That didn’t sound like a state of the art way to reverse damaged skin. Plus, it’s ridiculously expensive!


Instead, we decided on the Nobel Prize winning LED light therapy. Extremely safe and highly effective, LED works with your body—it doesn’t force it—to stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin.


Look at the additional benefits of LED:


  • Diminishes the symptoms of rosacea
  • Reduces pore size
  • Minimizes appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and crow’s feet
  • Repairs sun-damaged skin
  • Diminishes redness and flushing
  • Minimizes dry patches, itching and sensitivity related to eczema

Acclaimed and documented for aging, healing wounds, treating cancer, and skin diseases, LED is now a healthy revolution in anti-aging. Feel good about looking in the mirror. Talk to us about LED today!

Who doesn’t want to be rid of stretch marks? They can make you feel self-conscious and unattractive!


Certainly, remedies abound for this side effect of pregnancy and rapid weight loss, but can you actually get rid of them?


While stretch marks are indeed difficult to erase, you most certainly can greatly reduce their appearance to almost nothing. And yes, while this is good news, the really great news is this:


A non-invasive, incredibly safe, Nobel Prize winning therapy leads the field in vastly reducing the appearance of unsightly stretch marks.


LED technology is an acclaimed and documented therapy. In 1903, Dr. Niels Finsen, won a Nobel Prize for his work with LED and tuberculosis.


Researchers at NASA later discovered its skin rejuvenation benefits through plant experiments. Research showed LED sped up the healing of injuries from astronauts in outer space.


And now you get to benefit from this natural and safe therapy, too! Here’s how it works.


  • • LED uses low intensity light emitting diodes (LED) to reach the deep layers of your skin.


  • • LED accelerates skin repair by promoting the production of collagen


  • • LED pulls collagen to the surface to fill in lines and wrinkles (laser can’t do that!)


Even though LED technology is 3X brighter than the sun, it does NOT burn the skin. Instead, it works on a cellular level to repair the damage. Your old stretch marks, once silvery, return to their healthy color, looking much like the surrounding skin.


Strong enough to repair damaged tissues, but not to harm them in any way, LED gives you complete peace of mind and no visible stretch marks!

Acne. You might as well say the word, “taxes,” it has the same effect on your psyche.


Acne can be a debilitating disease that damages your self-esteem and your looks. And like taxes, it can also destroy your bank account trying to get rid of it!


When you’re looking for ways to treat this infamous disease, you may think you need aggressive treatment, after all, acne is an aggressive disease.


Or, maybe you’ve already experienced high-octane treatments with previous therapies. If so, you know how rigorous they can be!


The plain fact is you’ve suffered enough. Why should your treatment possibly threaten your health (like Accutane) or, as with chemical peels, cause severe drying, flaking, and hiding out for days at a time?


We treat acne with LED (light emitting diodes) therapy, and we treat it very successfully. And believe it or not, you will actually look forward to your treatments because they are so relaxing.


For severe, chronic acne, we use the LED blue light because it kills the P. acnes bacteria, the bacterial cause of this debilitating disease. The acne bacteria absorb the light, which kills the bacteria.


Acne vanishes as a result.


The LED red light is a healing light and reduces the inflammation caused by acne. It also reduces scarring, oil and oil production. We may also use this color on your acne as well.
How would we use these two lights for you? Schedule a consult today and we’ll discuss your individual treatment plan for clear skin!

Wash Your Face Twice

posted by lissa

Have you noticed your aesthetician cleanses your skin twice when you get a facial?

No, this is not a special method for skin care. However, it is an excellent practice for getting and keeping good skin.

This is especially true at night. Your skin works during the day by turning over new skin. Then you’ve got make-up, pollution and all the stuff floating around in the air at your work place and your home!

And, if you don’t wear make-up at all, that means you have nothing protecting the skin, so more dirt and debris collect like dust on your face!

That’s why cleansing twice is nice. The first wash is called a pre-cleanse, removing the daily build up of dirt, oil, make-up, etc. You’ll notice not a lot of suds form.

The second wash deep cleanses the skin, thoroughly cleaning your pores.

A two-step cleanse morning and evening is an excellent habit to develop. It helps remove excess oils, dirt and debris that your skin is exposed to overnight.

Do You Know What Stage YOUR Cellulite Is At?

Do You Know What Stage YOUR Cellulite Is At?

Without intervention cellulite does tend to worsen over time. The buttocks and thighs are the areas where it is easiest to identify the stage your cellulite is at. There are FOUR stages.

  1. While standing or lying down, the skin appears smooth and no dimples can be seen on the surface.
  2. The skin has a dimpled appearance when it is pinched or when you are seated on a hard surface. Many an unsuspecting celebrity has been photographed by the paparazzi in just such a pose, and included in magazine articles about cellulite. (And you’ll notice many of these celebrities appear slim as a reed!)
  3. Cellulite is visible when you are standing, but appears smooth when you recline.
  4. Cellulite is visible in both a standing and lying position.

No matter what stage you’re at, Spectrim Contour, an all-natural treatment, will reduce the appearance of cellulite and reshape your body. See and Feel the Difference for Yourself!

Tips For Cleansing Acne Prone Skin

Tips For Cleansing Acne Prone Skin

1. Wash Daily. Wash your face twice a day, but avoid soaps. Soaps can eradicate your skin’s protective barrier. Many of them have a pH higher than your skin, which can negatively alter your skin chemistry. Chemicals in some soaps can be very harsh and irritate your face. Instead, it’s best to use a gentle facial wash to clean your skin.

2. Do Not Scrub. Scrubbing is bad for acne-prone skin as it can cause existing ruptures to get even more inflamed. Avoid gritty exfoliant facial washes as well as cleansing tools like scratchy loofahs or scrubbers. Instead, massage in your gentle facial cleanser with your fingertips using lukewarm water. When you’re finished, rinse, then pat — don’t rub — your skin dry.

3. Try a Cleanser Containing Salicylic Acid. Salicylic acid, which is derived from plants, is one of the most effective anti-acne chemicals on the market. It works by entering follicles where it encourages the shedding of dead — and potentially pore-clogging — skin cells. It also helps shrink blackheads and whiteheads.

4. Consider a Cleanser with Benzoyl Peroxide. Just like salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide works by breaking up dead skin cells that can clog pores. It has the added benefit of killing the bacteria that help contribute to acne. Benzoyl peroxide is the active ingredient in acne-fighting preparations, but it can take a while to be effective, so give it a good four to six weeks to kick in.

5. Don’t Dry Out Your Skin. Many acne preparations have a significant drying effect on the skin. This might seem like a good thing, but overdrying can make things matter worse — oil production might go into overdrive. To avoid this, keep skin moisturized. It’s important to use products that are oil-free or marked “nonacnegenic” or “noncomedogenic,” meaning they won’t wedge roadblocks of gunk in your pores. If you’re treating a breakout with topical acne medication, be sure to apply the moisturizer after the medicine.

Do Eye Cremes Really Work?

Do Eye Cremes Really Work?

With more and more products available in the market today, it’s easier to get confused about which one to use.

Unfortunately, some manufacturers do sell items that are not quite effective. And this leads people to believe that skincare products are just a scam, especially eye crèmes.

The skin around the eye area greatly differs from the skin on the rest of your body. It is the thinnest and the most delicate. It is far more sensitive to pollutants, sun damage and allergens than the rest of your body.

One way to tell if a person’s skin has been damaged by the sun is that the skin around their eyes is extremely wrinkly and saggy.

That’s why taking care of this area requires more than just moisturizers. Eye cremes are essentially modified moisturizers, and for a very good reason. Because this area does not produce any oil, eye cremes have special emollients that are different from facial moisturizers.

These emollients soothe the area and have fewer additives than facial moisturizers. Eye cremes have also been formulated, tested and approved by ophthalmologists to be safe to use around your eyes.

Facial moisturizers do not have that stamp of approval. You may have noticed reputable facial moisturizers with warnings not to apply it close to the eyes.

Yes, eye crèmes do work. It’s just a matter of knowing which one works best for you.

Having a lot of responsibilities on your plate is common, it happens to everyone.

Some things are put on the back burner to prioritize another. And more often than not, it’s your skin that gets neglected.

Suddenly you notice it looks dull and you’re putting on more makeup to even out your skin tone.

It’s time you make your skincare a priority! Here are a few tips that will take you from dull to glow in no time.

• Exfoliate regularly. This is the most overlooked anti-aging strategy ever. Exfoliation removes dead skin cells making it look younger, brighter and softer.

• Keep hydrated. Make sure you’re drinking up to 8 glasses or two litres of water a day. Skin cells need water to stay healthy.

• Sleep. Your skin repairs and renews itself at night. Go for 7-8 hours of uninterrupted sleep to prevent under eye bags and dull skin.

• Take some omegas. You may get your omega fatty acids in your diet by taking softgels or eating oily fish like salmon. These little wonders assist your cells in repair, reduce inflammation and help your skin retain moisture.

With these easy-to-follow steps, your skin won’t be neglected again.

How To Lose Age Spots

How To Lose Age Spots

How To Lose Age Spots

As you get older, age spots start popping up all over your skin.

Age spots, or sun spots, are a consequence of sun damage through the accumulation of the dark pigment, melanin.

Although age spots are harmless, they are troublesome for most people, especially if they’re concerned with their looks.

So what can we do about them? There are many choices to make this pesky problem fade away.

At home treatments: For light-colored spots, choose products with the vitamin A derivative, or retinoids, that accelerate exfoliation of the skin. Weaker strength glycolic and kojic acid also fade age spots.

Professional Treatments: For darker spots, the treatment may require a professional touch.

Laser treatments are non-ablative and work by penetrating into the deeper layers of the skin, thereby stimulating collagen production from the inside.

Intense Pulsed Light also effectively tackles age spots. No matter what your aestheician recommends, the key with age spots is time and persistence.

Don’t expect a quick fix because there isn’t one. Combining treatments, however, is a highly effective way to speed up the process.

Set up a consult with us and we’ll outline a treatment plan tailored just for your skincare needs. Lastly, use sunscreen all year round to prevent further damage.
