When was the last time you treated yourself to a skintreatment ? 

Regular facial treatments can have amazing benefits for the skin.

They can prevent and correct many skin issues and maintain your skin looking healthy and younger looking. My philosophy in skin care is based on 4 very important blocks that transform and maintain the skin.. fighting the signs of aging and helping improve other concerns, supporting the skin to function at its fullest potential.

▫CLEANSING & EXFOLIATION ..Exfoliating dead skin cells allows better absorption and efficacy of your skin care and forces the skin to replace those dead cells with new cells which perform better and look healthier

▫STIMULATION ..If there is a word that describes keeping your skin looking young is this one. As we age the skin becomes sluggish and it’s normal renewal processes slow down considerably, so stimulating in different ways for example : massage, utilizing technology etc.. makes the skin work more effectively.

▫NOURISHMENT .. Good skincare with selected ingredients can transform the skin and supply essential nutrients topically which are utilized directly providing great results.

▫PROTECTION.. None of the above will make sense if you don’t protect your skin with a good SPF. The sun damages skin cells and speeds the signs of aging like uneven pigmentation , distended capillaries and lines and wrinkles needless to say the high risk of skin cancer.

?ALWAYS CONSIDER that everyone’s skin is unique and the skin changes so its needs change as well.

Healthy skin begins with good cleansing habits..

Cleansing your skin sounds simple and it should be, but using the wrong cleanser can start many skin problems such as: sensitivity, excessive dryness, irritation, redness and even breakouts.

The skin protective layer is meant to guard the skin from external aggresors but certain chemicals such as sodium lauryl sulfate found in many cleansers can strip the skin of natural essential lipids leaving the skin vulnerable to irritation and dryness.

Here are some tips for a regular cleansing routine:

?Select a mild cleanser, avoid harsh surfactants such as sodium lauryl sulfate

?Cleanse your skin 2 times a day

If suffering from acne, avoid over cleansing since it will actually cause the skin to produce more oil to counteract the dryness caused by the Cleanser. Dryness and irritation can exacerbate breakouts.

?If using an exfoliating cleanser containing acids such as glycolic or salicylic make sure you hydrate the skin properly that way you supply the skin with fundamental components.

?Some devices such as clarasonic or foreo contain ultrasonic technology to help provide a deeper cleansing, they are great; but remember, more is not always better. Your skin will tell you how often to use them.

If using them everyday starts to give you skin problems, reduce the frequency of use.

?And my favorite tip : ALWAYS GO TO BED WITH A CLEAN FACE .

“We are what we eat”…

I am sure we have all heard that phrase..

and although it is true in the sense that our health is directly linked to proper nutrition, the food we consumed is absorbed and used in order of priority by our organs and tissues. Important organs such as: the heart, liver and kidneys use a great amount of the nutrients to restore and re-energize their functions. The skin as the largest organ of the body can easily get depleted of important vitamins necessary for proper regeneration and healing. That is why applying topical nutrients can help reinforce and provide the skin with crucial elements to optimize cellular metabolism and functioning.

Some of the most important nutrients used in skin cocktails are:

Glutathione- Taurine- organic silicon- DMAE- B Complex, vitamins A, E, C, hyluronic acid, Resveratrol, Oligopeptides, Alphalipoic Acid, Growth factors and many others…

It is very important to note that the vitamins for skincare need to be formulated for topical use and must count with a a small molecular structure so that they can be easily penetrated and readily absorbed by the skin, otherwise; the product would remain on the surface with no significant benefit.

A modality that is broadly used to improve penetration of the nutrients is “Electroporation Technology” which permeates the cellular membrane temporarily to allow better absorption of the actives.

Another method used by doctors to inject the actives directly into the dermal areas been treated is Meso-Therapy.

Let us not forget that still the first guard of defense for Healthy Skin is a Healthy Diet but  we can certainly see A BIG difference in  how the Skin becomes more radiant and re-energized after a good VITAMIN INFUSED SKIN TREATMENT!!!

Who doesn’t want brighter, glowing skin instantly!!! Bye-Bye Dull Skin..

Microdermabrasion is definitely one of those -must have- treatments when you want a quick, non-invasive way to change the way your skin looks and feels.  It is considered a mechanical superficial peel with many short and long-term benefits!! There are different types of microdermabrasion:

  • Crystal: Performed with a machine that has two tubes connected at the end by a head piece. One has a vacuum and the other delivers finely milled crystals. The vacuum pulls up the skin while aluminum oxide crystals or sodium bicarbonate cause a controlled abrasion to the skin, removing dead skin cells from the surface.
  • Diamond Tip: Utilizes micro-abrasion wands with diamond tips
  • Dermal-Infusion: It alternates diamond microdermabrasion with the infusion of specific serums determined according to the skin condition

By removing the old skin cells, new cells are exposed giving the skin a younger and brighter look.  Isn’t that Awesome!!! Another great plus is that  there is immediate stimulation to the formation of new collagen. Collagen is the magic word…  New collagen means Plump, Dewy, Healthy SKIN!! Microdermabrasion can help improve a variety of skin issues and conditions, including:

* Scars * Non-inflammatory Acne *Sun damage * Dark spots * Uneven skin tone * Dull skin* Lines & Wrinkles…

On its own microdermabrasion is a fabulous treatment, however; when combined with other modalities and active skin care ingredients, it is an incredible tool to achieve more dramatic and faster results.

It is not recommended for inflammatory conditions or hyper- sensitive skin.

IF YOU WANT NEW SKIN THE SAME DAY, CONSIDER THIS FANTASTIC TREATMENT OPTION!!!
