5 Reasons You Should Consider a Chemical Peel

Posted on May 22, 2018 by Ella Fedonenko

There are many simple things you can do to keep looking beautiful no matter what your age. Chemical peels, for example, have been around since the 1990s, and offer variety of benefits:

  1. Customizable

All chemical peels are not created equal. They are quite versatile and can be customized to fit your needs.

  1. Quick Recovery

The side effects include mild irritation and peeling. That is why it is very important to use a good moisturizer in the days following the treatment.

  1. They Help with Acne and Acne Scars 

The ingredients in chemical peels penetrate deep into the skin, which is why they help prevent acne. They can also help improve the appearance of acne scars.

  1. Smoother Skin

Chemical peels remove dead skin cells and promote new cell turnover. The result is an improved appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and smoother skin texture.

  1. Improved Skin Tone

Chemical peels can significantly improve the appearance of sun spots, creating a more even skin tone.

How to Best Even Your Skin Tone

Posted on May 1, 2018 by Ella Fedonenko

Blemishes, wrinkles and sun spots are all parts of a normal aging process. However, professional skin rejuvenation procedures can significantly improve your complexion and reverse some of the changes in your skin that come with aging.

Sun Spots

Although many of us love having tan skin, the sun can also do significant damage to it. Sun exposure may increase freckles and cause sun spots. The best way to deal with these issues is to talk to a professional about IPL photofacial. To prevent more sun spots from appearing, be sure to apply sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher daily.

Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation

Hyperpigmentation caused by acne can be very noticeable, even under the most professionally-applied make up. Chemical peels are a proven solution for this condition. These procedures must only be administered by an experienced skin rejuvenation specialist.

Fine Lines and Wrinkles

Although a completely natural part of aging, excessive sun exposure may accelerate wrinkle formation. Botox treatments can improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in as little as 7 days, making your skin look more youthful with minimal to no discomfort.

The Evolution of Hair Removal

Posted on March 19, 2018 by Ella Fedonenko

Hair removal has been practiced across cultures for centuries. The women of Ancient Egypt would use pumice stones and seashells to remove unwanted hair from their bodies. Upper classes of the Roman Empire correlated excessive body hair with poverty. The elites of Roman society would use razors made from flint to keep themselves well-groomed and clean shaven. This tradition can still be seen in Roman sculptures and paintings as artists often depicted hairless human bodies.

 

Although the tools of hair removal have changed dramatically over time, the desire to have a smooth, hair free skin has remained. Luckily, we now can utilize laser technology to safely and effectively remove unwanted body hair.

 

How does laser hair removal work?

A laser hair removal system uses a beam of high-intensity light to destroy hair follicles deep within the skin. The laser can effectively target and remove hair follicles without damaging the surrounding tissues.

 

Who can benefit from this treatment?

Earlier generations of lasers were limited to patients with a lighter skin tone. Fortunately, newer laser hair removal systems can now successfully treat patients with darker skin tones as well.

 

How many treatments will I need?

Generally, you can expect to have at least 6-8 treatments to achieve good results.

Improve Your Skin with Laser Skin Resurfacing

Posted on February 20, 2018 by Ella Fedonenko

California’s temperate climate and world-renowned beaches make the state a vacationer’s paradise. However, excessive sun exposure can be detrimental to the health of our skin. It may cause sun spots and wrinkles, and it may also raise one’s risk of developing skin cancer.

Sunscreen is one of the best weapons against harmful UVB rays, and we recommend using at least SPF 30 in your daily regimen. SPF 30 is designed to block around 97 percent of UVB radiation, but to be effective it has to be reapplied every two hours. If you already have symptoms of sun damage we can certainly treat them with a variety of medical grade treatments. Laser skin resurfacing is one of the most effective ways of treating certain signs of sun damage such as wrinkles and fine lines. Below, we have outlined several key elements of this cutting-edge treatment.

 

What is laser skin resurfacing?

Laser skin resurfacing uses energy-based technology to improve the appearance of various skin imperfections. During the treatment, a clinician will direct hundreds of microbeams deep into the skin to stimulate collagen and promote your body’s natural healing response.

 

What conditions can laser skin resurfacing treat?

Laser skin resurfacing can improve the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and sun spots. The treatment also works to boost your body’s own collagen.

 

How do I prepare for treatment?


We recommend discontinuing use of Retin A and chemical peels, for at least a week prior to the treatment. Also, patients must minimize their sun exposure for at least two weeks prior to receiving any kind of laser treatment.

 

How often the treatments are done?


In order to achieve optimal results it is best to schedule treatments every 4 to 6 weeks.

Love Your Legs This February

Posted on February 15, 2018 by Ella Fedonenko

The sedentary lifestyle many of us lead, unfortunately causes a whole host of medical problems including the increased prominence of varicose and spider veins. These engorged blood vessels typically can be found on the legs. Although any vein can become varicose, the leg veins are particularly susceptible to developing these types of abnormalities because blood vessels in this area are tasked with the strenuous job of pumping blood up to the heart. Over time it leads to weaker valves which makes the blood to pool in the veins and that eventually causes the veins to become enlarged.

 

See below to learn more about treatments that will make your legs look healthier and more beautiful.

 

What are spider veins?

Spider veins are located close to the surface of the skin and they usually have red or bluish color. Spider veins are generally smaller than varicose veins, and they are often found on the face as well as on the legs. They are typically much easier to treat than varicose veins.

 

How can I treat spider leg veins?

Two of the most effective treatments for this disorder are sclerotherapy and laser vein therapy.  Both options are minimally invasive procedures and have quick recovery times.

 

What are the differences between sclerotherapy and laser vein therapy?

Sclerotherapy utilizes a therapeutic solution which causes veins to collapse. It is injected directly into the unwanted vein, and over the course of a few weeks the vein begins to gradually disappear.  Laser vein therapy, on the other hand, uses therapeutic heat to destroy the abnormal veins.

 

What is the best time to start treatments?

If you want to have beautiful legs by the summer, we recommend starting your treatments in February. Patients typically need more than one treatment to see good results.

Beauty Tips for Busy Moms

Posted on February 1, 2018 by Ella Fedonenko

Being a mother is one of the hardest, and yet most rewarding experiences women can have during their lifetimes. Mothers are constantly putting the needs of their children before their own, and frequently they don’t have time to take care of themselves consistently. Here are four tips for busy mothers on how to rejuvenate your natural beauty.

 

  1. Consume more greens

Making a decision to choose a green smoothie over cheaper and more sugary beverage option such as a soda drink can be a difficult choice for many. We personally advocate for the daily consumption of plant-based smoothies because of their impressive beautifying effects. By nourishing your body with healthy and nutritious ingredients, you are more likely to maintain a clear and glowing complexion. Studies have shown that soda drinks can actually speed up the aging process. If you are looking for practical ways to combat aging, you should start with healthier meal choices and skip sodas altogether.

 

  1. Sleep

Sleep is one of the simplest methods to rejuvenate your mind and body. A good night’s rest leads to increased energy, clearer complexion and improved mental clarity.

 

  1. Juvederm

Aging tends to affect the under eye area first which can make you look tired and worn out. If you are interested in restoring youthful appearance of your under eye area, fillers might be the right cosmetic treatment for you. Juvederm is one of our favorite dermal fillers, and it is particularly well suited for the under eye area.

 

  1. Botox

Botox is one of the most popular aesthetic treatments in the world. Our patients especially love Botox because it offers the opportunity to look years younger with virtually no downtime.
