Exciting New Treatments
Here are some new treatments and add-ons that I’ve started or am adding in the coming weeks. Please let me know if you are interested in any of them at your next visit.
Uses therapeutic light (at specific wavelengths) to stimulate cellular regeneration to produce collagen and elastin, kill Propionibacterium acnes (P. acnes) bacteria, reduce inflammation and speed healing. - See more at: http://www.skininc.com/treatments/equipment/How-LED-Light-Therapy-Works-389753212.html#sthash.KwjQy5GH.dpuf
also known as the Hydrafacial, is similar in concept to microdermabrasion, but without the use of crystals.
It is a type of exfoliation plus, it uses a specially shaped spiral tip and vortex technology which exfoliates and removes impurities along with delivering pneumatically applied serums that cleanse, hydrate and provide antioxidant infusion during the treatment process; something which microdermabrasion does not do. Hydradermabrasion is indicated for the improvement in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, congested and enlarged pores (e.g., blackheads), oily or acne-prone skin and hyperpigmentation. It provides a deep and hydrating cleanse.
3. Microneedling or Collagen Induction Therapy:
Micro‐needling is aimed at stimulating the body’s own collagen
production to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, stretch marks, skin laxity and scarring. The skin needling system allows for controlled induction of the skin’s self‐repair mechanism by creating micro “injuries” in the skin which triggers new collagen synthesis yet does not pose the risk of permanent scarring. The result is smoother, firmer and younger looking skin.
4. Deeper Peels:
We have been using a deeper Face Reality peel (a TCA, Mandelic and Lactic acid based peel along with azelaic and kojic acids) to better lift
Melasma, hyperpigmentation, sun spots and acne scarring. This is a heavy-duty peel where you will scab over for a 1-2 days and must be prepared to peel heavily for a week but the results are truly amazing.
