Hand Makeovers Are on the Rise!

Posted on August 18, 2017 by Ella Fedonenko

Say Goodbye to Sunspots

They say you can tell someone’s age by looking at their hands. We often forget to protect our hands from the sun in the same way as our face, which can lead to sunspots and a leathery, aged appearance.

In the same way they are used to treat sun damage on your face, IPL and chemical peels can both be used to rejuvenate your hands. We can help you determine which treatment is right for you based on your complexion and degree of sun damage.

Fill Out Thin, Wrinkled Hands

As you get older, your hands will likely lose volume and plumpness, leaving behind thin, crepey skin. Fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane can create more youthful looking hands by replacing lost collagen and smoothing out wrinkles. Fillers are quick and pain free, and last around six months when injected into the hands – not quite as long as facial fillers since the hands are used frequently, causing the fillers to be metabolized more quickly.

5 Ways Stress Wreaks Havoc on Your Skin

Posted on July 18, 2016 by Ella Fedonenko

Today’s women often juggle work, relationships, children, and active social lives—it’s easy to get stressed out when you’re that busy!  And if we’re not careful, signs of stress can wreak havoc on our skin.  Follow these tips to stay beautiful, even under stress.

1.Under Eye Bags

Most adults need 7-9 hours of sleep each night.  Unfortunately, stress can make getting enough sleep a challenge, causing you to wake up with unsightly under eye bags. If you suffer from chronic under eye bags, intense pulsed light (IPL) treatment offers a permanent solution.

2. Dry, Flaky Skin

Drinking enough water (not to mention less coffee) isn’t always easy when you’re super busy, but these habits can leave you with dry, dull, flaky skin.  Drinking at least 8 glasses of water each day and using high-quality skin care products, like those from the SkinMedica range, can make a huge difference in your complexion.

3. Facial Acne

It’s a well-known fact that stress can make acne worse. Self-care measures, like eating well and drinking enough water, can go a long way towards keeping your skin clear.  For more severe acne problems, chemical peels are a great option.

4. Rosacea and Flushing

Stress can certainly cause a flare-up of rosacea. If you suffer from rosacea, IPL can reduce persistent red undertones in your complexion.

5. Fine Lines and Wrinkles

Many people have a habit of making certain facial expressions when they’re stressed, such as furrowing the brow or pursing their lips.  Over time, these unconscious expressions can lead to fine lines and wrinkles.  Taking good care of your skin and making a conscious effort to avoid certain facial expressions are important preventative measures, but Botox and fillers are the best tools for treating and preventing wrinkles.
