HOW IT WORKS

We have all heard the cliché, “It’s all about the skin tightening in aesthetics.” But, what does that actually mean and how do you achieve it? Skin tightening usually involves the building of new and stronger collagen and elastin fibers within the skin. These are the infrastructure and support system holding everything together in those top layers of your body.

Imagine that at the cellular level of your skin, there are ropes and fibers running throughout, crisscrossing, pulling, tugging and stretching,

making your skin resilient and stretchy.

Now try to envision how a baby’s fresh elastic skin is very different from someone who is thirty, forty, fifty, sixty, and beyond. The difference is the loss of that collagen-rich skin that creates an ability to “pop back”.

THE SCIENCE OF SKIN CARE

Modern dermatology and aesthetics provides us with masterful ways of increasing your own body’s collagen and elastin fibers. Almost everything we do in aesthetics has that as one of its outcomes. Included on the VIP list are microneedling collagen induction, dermaplaning, chemical peels, and prescription strength skin care products.

Controlled injuries of all sorts can also lead to more collagen production. This would include anything like a chemical peel or the scraping of the skin as in dermaplaning and microdermabrasion (a gentle blast of crystals that remove the top dead layer of skin cells). Additionally, as the obstructive dead layer of outer cells exfoliate, your medical-grade products may then achieve greater penetration. In essence, you will really get your money’s worth on products if you are also utilizing top exfoliating techniques.

Facials For Your Skin Type

The nice part about combining all of these treatments is that they all work synergistically to help reset that relentless aging clock that we all deal with.

Try to do a combination of treatments each year and keep pushing back on the aging process in your skin!

Oily Skin

Prone to oily skin or acne? This facial incorporates thorough steaming, deep cleansing and a variation of healing masks and moisturizers. Salicylic and glycolic acids aimed at managing and reducing flare-ups are often utilized. Typically, more than one treatment is needed to achieve desired results.

Sensitive Skin

This facial uses hypoallergenic products that soothed irritated skin. An enzyme rub may be used to exfoliate the top layers of the epidermis followed by serum and mask.

Anti-Aging

Rejuvenate the skin and fight against wrinkles. Our products are designed to slow the aging process while hydrating and brightening the skin. Best when using an exfoliate and customized peel to help stimulate collagen levels.

BEST PRACTICE SKIN CARE:
SKIN EXFOLIATION

Dermaplaning (the clinical term for using a straight-edge-like facial razor on skin to mechanically exfoliate it) has many beautiful benefits, as Monroe and Taylor knew: It removes deep layers of dead skin cells thoroughly; it’s a fine exfoliation rather than gritty (think of it as wearing ice skates rather than golf shoes on an ice rink); and it gets rid of the Vellus hairs (the tiny peach fuzz that covers your face).

It also makes your skin smoother, allows any products you apply after to penetrate deeper, and promotes cellular turnover, which is one of the reasons men always look five or so years younger than their age, since they’re constantly exfoliating through shaving and encouraging new cells to the surface of their skin. Shave yourself once weekly or allow our Esthetician to introduce you to dermaplaning in our clinic.

BEST PRACTICE SKIN CARE:
CONTROL HYPERPIGMENTION

The primary goal of IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) is to make the skin tone or color more even. One of the signs of aging is irregular brown and sometimes red discoloration of the skin. These changes may be due to sun damage, pregnancy related melasma, broken blood vessels, and are a reason women begin to wear foundation type makeup.

The number of treatments required to achieve desired results and length of results varies from individual to individual and can be dramatically altered by sun exposure. IPL also tightens skin slightly (photo-facial effect).

BEST PRACTICE SKIN CARE:
SKIN REJUVENATION

Microneedling or Collagen Induction Therapy is a minimally invasive procedure designed to rejuvenate the skin. Collagen Induction Therapy improves wrinkles, fine lines, stretch marks and acne scars. A small device creates microtrauma to the very top layer skin; the epidermis and dermis. The key to the success of Microneedling or Collagen Induction Therapy is the process that it stimulates. These micro injuries stimulate your body to release growth factors and cytokines by keratinocytes. These growth factors and cytokines stimulate fibroblasts to differentiate and form normal collagen, elastin and greater amounts of hyaluronic acid. Collagen and Elastin improve the tensile strength of the skin. This results in a tighter surface of the skin. This procedure is the ideal skin rejuvenation technique.

Typically, the procedure is performed 4 times over a six-month period of time. The skin responds beautifully to repeated treatments and has been shown to be just a successful for under the wrinkles as Fraxel Laser Skin Ablation. And at a fraction of the cost! The recovery from Collagen Induction Therapy is 24-48 hours. Fraxel Laser Skin Ablation recovery is more than 2 weeks. Once you have completed your series of treatments, the clinician will decide when to repeat your procedure. In the meantime, simply continue standard best practice skin care including careful selection of soap, moisturizing products, retinol where indicated, and sunscreen.
