What Is A Chemical Peel?
What is a Chemical Peel?
Sidney | 12.1.2017


A chemical peel is a treatment used to improve the appearance of the skin. A chemical peel can be used on the face, neck, chest or hands. The chemical solution is applied to skin causing an exfoliating process which will eventually peel off. The fresh new skin is smoother, less wrinkled, and has more even tones. There are three basic types of chemical peels we offer:   Superficial or lunchtime peel: This would be a mild acid used to penetrate only the outer layer of the skin for a gentle exfoliation. The treatment is used to improve the appearance of mild skin discolorations, texture, and fine lines and wrinkles.     Medium depth peel: Glycolic acid is applied to penetrate the outer and middle layers of the skin. This treatment will help improve dark spots, fine lines and wrinkles, and rough textures such as acne scarring.     Deep peel: A TCA peel is applied to the skin surface to deeply penetrate the middle layer of the skin to improve deep wrinkle lines, dark spots, and shallow scars.  

What Is MiraDry?
What is miraDry?
Sidney | 5.1.2017


MiraDry is the only noninvasive, FDA-cleared treatment that will free you from the bothersome problems of underarm sweat. By eliminating the sweat and odor glands, you can feel confident that your underarms will remain dry in any situation.   What is the miraDry treatment? miraDry is the only noninvasive, FDA-cleared treatment that will free you from the bothersome problems of underarm sweat. By eliminating the sweat and odor glands, you can feel confident that your underarms will remain dry in any situation.   Don't I need sweat glands? Not in your armpits! You are born with approximately 2 million sweat glands throughout your body. Your underarms only contain about 2% of those glands. After your miraDry treatment you will experience the many benefits of dry underarms, and you will continue to perspire normally elsewhere.   What is the treatment like? You will be in a reclined position for about one hour. You aren’t likely to feel anything during the treatment since your underarms will be numbed prior to treatment. After treatment, you may experience swelling, soreness, tingling and numbness in the treated area. These sensations typically clear-up within a few days to a few weeks.   How does it work? The miraDry system uses proprietary miraWave energy that targets and destroys sweat and odor glands in your underarm. Once those glands are destroyed they do not grow back so that means once they are gone, they are gone for good   What results can I expect? You can expect to have an immediate reduction in your sweat. Sweat glands don’t grow back so you should experience results that last. The amount of sweat reduction you desire should be discussed with your miraDry physician. As with any treatment, the results may vary from person to person.   How many treatments will I need? You will see results in as little as one treatment. However, as with any aesthetic treatment, your physician will determine the best treatment plan for your desired results.   Is the treatment painless? Since your underarms are numbed prior to treatment, most patients experience little to no pain.   Is there any downtime? Depending on what your typical day is like, downtime can be minimal to none. Most patients return to regular activity (like returning to work) immediately. Exercise and vigorous activity is typically resumed within several days. You may experience discomfort in your armpits for several day post treatment.   Is it safe? Yes, miraDry has been used in over 55,000 treatments worldwide with an excellent safety record.   Are there any side effects? After treatment, you may experience temporary swelling, soreness, tingling and numbness in the treated area. These sensations typically clear up within a few days to a few weeks. There have been no reports of permanent side effects; however, some patients experience short-term altered sensation in the skin of their underarms or upper arms, which gradually disappears. Please consult with your physicians for all possible side effects and to see if miraDry is right for you.

5 Myths About Microdermabrasion
5 myths about microdermabrasion
Sidney | 2.11.2016


Microdermabrasion is the first step to healthier, brighter skin. When it comes to your face, there’s good reason to be nervous about trying something new—but microdermabrasion is safe and simple! Here are some myths about microdermabrasion debunked!  

  1. It hurts!
It’s completely understandable why you might think a foreign substance scrubbing away dead skin cells from your face could hurt—but this really doesn’t! In fact, it can feel almost like a massage.
  1. It’s risky.
Despite the long, almost intimidating name, microdermabrasion is a non-surgical procedure with minimal risk—especially when you’re having a professional skincare physician performing it.
  1. It’s time-consuming
The bonus of this non-surgical performance is that this procedure is short and requires no downtime! Lasting between 15 and 30 minutes, when you’re done, you’re good to go. You may have a slightly pink tint to your face for a few hours, but it will be replaced by smooth, glowing skin in no time.
  1. It’s pointless
Even with a regular skincare routine, it’s still important to exfoliate if you’re dedicated to clear, healthy skin. Microdermabrasion is designed to remove dead skin cells and debris that your regular nightly routine cannot do alone.
  1. It’s just as effective to DIY
DIY methods on Pinterest or over the counter scrubs are simply not as effective. Microdermabrasion is still a medical procedure and for effective results, it’s best to seek a skincare professional.

The Solutions For Acne
The solutions for Acne
Sidney | 22.7.2016


Acne is something that we help treat on a daily basis and can happen to anyone at any age. We are going to share with you some of our favorite acne treatments and products. Extractions are a very easy inexpensive treatment for active acne. When doing extractions yourself it can actually make acne worse by pushing the contents deeper into the skin, introducing more bacteria into it through unclean nails, or risk scarring. Aestheticians have a sterile environment and can use the appropriate tools to prevent these things. HydraFacials are another very effective way to help clear up active acne. The HydraFacial treatment will help clean debris out of the pores by using a Vortex technology that will extract, exfoliate, and infuse the skin. You will also receive a peel containing Glycolic and Salicylic Acids. This treatment for best acne results can be given on a weekly basis. And lastly, acne laser treatments are going to destroy the P. acne bacteria that is actually causing the breakout. Inflammation and redness will decrease even after the first treatment. Acne laser treatments are a safe treatment with 80% of acne clearance on average. We recommend 4 treatments over a 4 week period. Using a great at home regimen in conjunction with acne treatments will always maximize the results you will have. Retin-A or Tretinoin is used to treat mild to moderately acne. Retin-A will speed up cell turnover rates, rapidly exfoliating your skin and decreasing the buildup of dead cells within the follicle. This will keep your pores from becoming blocked, no blocked pores means no pimples (or blackheads). Obagi Medical Clenziderm MD System contains three simple products. The Daily Care Foaming Cleanser and the Pore Therapy Toner are both 2% Salicylic Acid based products to use morning and night dry up active acne and prevent new breakout.  Followed by the Therapeutic Lotion which contains 5% Benzoyl Peroxide. This can be used all over for severe acne or as a spot treatment. SkinCeuticals also have a very effective acne treatment kit the Adult Anti-Acne System. Included is cleanser with is LHA, glycolic, and salicylic acid designed to unclog pores, smooth irregularities and brighten the skin. The LHA Solution is used to then exfoliate the skin and remove excess residue. Finishing with the Blemish + Age, this oil-free serum prevents the formation of acne. With these amazing treatments and products we have helped our clients achieve the flawless skin they've been hoping for! Don't let acne be something that you struggle to control.

What Is The Importance Of SPF
What is the importance of SPF
Sidney | 15.3.2016


We all know we are supposed to apply sunscreen when we are outside, but what is it really protecting us from? UVA, UVB, UVC, and IR rays are all damaging to our skin. When you're not wearing sunscreen on a daily basis to help protect your skin's health, UVA and UVB rays can cause skin reddening, brown spots, accelerated skin aging, and increase your risk of skin cancer.   UVA - stands for Ultraviolet A or " UV Aging Rays". These rays cause long term skin damage and photo-aging.   UVB - stands for Ultraviolet B or "UV Burning Rays". These rays are the cause of a sunburn. UVB rays are the common cause of most skin cancers.   UVC - stands for Ultraviolet C. It is the strongest and most deadly of solar rays, however the ozone layer stops these from reaching the Earth.   IR or Infrared Rays- these rays penetrate the deepest into the skin causing the skin to lose elasticity.   Here are a few things to remember when protecting yourself.

  • Look at your sunscreen ingredients and make sure you see titanium dioxide and zinc oxide.
  • Avoid tanning and UV tanning beds.
  • Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen daily with an SPF of 30 or higher.
  • Apply 2 tbs of sunscreen 30 minutes before going outside; reapply every 80 minutes or after swimming or sweating.
  • Sun Protection Factor (SPF) measures a sunscreen's effectiveness in preventing a sunburn in relation to the length if time spent in the sun.
  • Schedule a yearly visit with your dermatologist for a complete skin exam.
