Age Gracefully with These Two Preventative Treatments

Posted on November 1, 2017 by Ella Fedonenko

As we get older it takes more effort to maintain our appearance. Fortunately, if we choose to take preventative measures to keep our skin healthy and well nourished, we can help ensure we age as gracefully as possible. Here is some helpful information on two of the most powerful anti-aging treatments available only through cosmetic professionals.

Chemical Peels

Many over-the-counter exfoliating treatments often fall short of our expectations. For example, presaturated chemical peel pads available at your local beauty counter are designed with a formula that would be least irritating for the majority of customers and they also use relatively weak acids to avoid potential side effects. Thus, these prepackaged solutions would be well tolerated by most consumers, but it might not be the best option for you given your particular skin type.

An aesthetic medicine professional can create a customized treatment plan that includes chemical peel treatments that are strong enough to actually give real results. We have found that patients who regularly receive chemical peels have much better skin tone and texture compared to those who don’t use this treatment modality. At Your Laser Skin Care, we use Skinmedica chemical peels to effectively treat multiple signs of aging including fine lines, wrinkles, and dark spots.

Laser Skin Resurfacing

Lasers are one of the most powerful anti-aging tools on the market today, and we see great value in starting treatments early on in life. It’s a wonderful preventive treatment because these devices have the ability to stimulate collagen production, which is the driving factor behind maintaining young and beautiful skin. Fractional laser resurfacing is one of the newest methods available to give patients smoother and healthier looking skin, and we have been quite impressed by its ability to correct numerous skin issues related to aging. We have found that The Palomar Starlux 1540 Fractional laser is excellent at improving the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and sun damage.

Lasers: The Most Versatile Cosmetic Treatment Tool

Posted on August 30, 2017 by Ella Fedonenko

It’s no secret that laser treatments are at the forefront of skin care technology right now. They are well known for their versatility and effectiveness, and require no downtime after a treatment. In the relatively short amount of time they have been around, lasers have already mastered hair removal, as well as reduction of scars, stretch marks, and sun damage. Here are some of our favorite laser treatments:

Laser Skin Resurfacing

The Palomar Starlux 1540 Fractional Laser is a state-of-the-art technology that can treat dark spots, scars, wrinkles, stretch marks, and more. This treatment stimulates the dermis to form new healthy tissue and collagen. The laser is non-ablative, which means the outer layer of skin is not removed, so healing happens much faster.

Laser Vein Therapy

Unsightly spider or varicose veins can be not only aesthetically unpleasant, but also painful. Laser vein therapy is the minimally invasive way to remove varicose veins as well as port wine stains, rosacea and other vascular birthmarks. The laser targets diseased blood vessels, delivering a controlled amount of heat. The upper layers of skin are protected with a patented Dynamic Cooling Device and side effects are minimal.

Laser Skin Tightening

The Candela YAG Laser can be used to rejuvenate the skin by diminishing the appearance of wrinkles and acne scars, and by tightening sagging skin. Laser skin tightening works by heating up the existing collagen which in turn triggers new collagen formation. This process improves facial contours and smoothes out wrinkles, leaving you with plump, youthful skin.

Botox: Looking Your Very Best at Every Age

Posted on August 15, 2016 by Ella Fedonenko

In the past, Botox was considered a treatment for “older” women. Over the past decade, however, more and more younger women—those in their 20s, 30s, and 40s—have caught onto this beauty secret. These days, Botox is commonly used in young women to treat fine lines, and can even be used to prevent wrinkles. Here’s how to make the most of this cosmetic treatment at every age. (more…)

This is the Season…

Posted on September 17, 2013 by Ella Fedonenko

Every season brings its own unique qualities and nuances. Each creates a mood and encourages personal reflection. Fall is making its appearance and our skin is responding. It’s a good time to reflect.

If we look at Fall in the traditional terms of life stages, here is the time for renewal and repair. Here is the perfect time to recover from the heat and sun and, perhaps, the excesses of summer indulgence and activities. It might be the best time to look and listen to what your skin is telling you. And, of course, here is the best time to prepare for the Holiday season approaching fast!

If there were times when your sun block or UV protection was not quite sufficient or re-applied often enough, if you spent extended time in the water or the wind, what were the effects on your skin? On your face, your arms, your chest?

Have a few brown spots or “freckles” appeared? Patches of crinkly skin? Lines or wrinkles? Have you had a few “break-outs” from oil-clogged pores? And finally, are you protecting your skin, now, for the Winter season that will, surely, bring its own beauty care challenges?

No one sees your skin as much as you do and no one knows it quite as well. Sometimes, that’s both the blessing and the curse. While you may be the first to notice changes, while your critical eye counts each line and worries over every wrinkle, the reverse may also be true. There are also times when we only see what we’re used to seeing. We quickly skim or scan our faces and bodies and it would take a very obvious difference to catch our attention.

Why not make a special date with your mirror? Set aside some personal time to spend fifteen or thirty minutes just between the two of you. Remove your makeup, pull back your hair and simply look at your face. You might be surprised at how lovely it is. Find your best features and enjoy them.

Then look yourself in the eyes and see what or where your attention is drawn next. Naturally and slowly, try to look at yourself as if for the first time. The good and the not-so-good. And then set about correcting it.

Dry flaky skin? Enlarged pores? Perhaps you will choose one of the wonderful VIVITÉ® skincare products. Frown lines and wrinkles? Perhaps BOTOX Cosmetic or Dysport can easily and affordably offer the solution. IPL, derma fillers, Laser skin tightening and an array of other non-invasive cosmetic treatments are available to renew, revitalize and reverse the effects of premature aging.

So your mirror has done its part; and you’ve done yours. Now might be the time for a “second opinion,” a consultation with your cosmetic dermatology physician. Point out your concerns and discuss the possibilities. Remember, most cosmetic procedures require a bit of time to reach their full effect or for even the mildest side effects to completely disappear. Celebrate the Season with the best gift of all – a fresher, smoother, more youthful and radiant-looking complexion!
