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.

Versatility of Chemical Peels

Posted on April 5, 2018 by Ella Fedonenko

Chemical peels are one of the most versatile cosmetic tools that can help improve your skin tone and texture. These treatments can supercharge your body’s natural ability to shed dead skin cells and they also stimulate collagen and elastin production.

Lighter peels, such as SkinMedica Illuminize Peel, can give your skin a bright and healthy glow after only one treatment. More intense peels such as SkinMedica Vitalize and Rejuvenize peels require minimal downtime, but they can also improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and sun spots.

Rejuvenize and Vitalize peels contain salicylic acid in its formulation which is a very effective medication for acne.

How many treatments do I need? 

Patients can expect fresher looking skin after just one treatment with a professional grade medical peel.  The effects of the peels are cumulative, and if you are looking for longer term results you should schedule a series of 4 to 5 treatments in order to obtain maximum results. Patients with acne-prone skin can greatly benefit from maintenance chemical peel treatments to clear pores from acne causing debris.

How frequently can I receive chemical peel treatments?

Deeper peels, such as the Rejuvenize peel, can be repeated every 4-6 weeks. Lighter peels, such as the Illuminize peel, can be performed in 2-4 week intervals.

How can I protect my skin after receiving a chemical peel treatment?

The key to a successful chemical peel treatment is to be gentle with your skin while it heals after the procedure. This means limiting sun exposure and wearing a sunscreen that offers a broad spectrum protection. You should also use a gentle skin care regimen that encourages healing for at least week after your procedure. Skin care products containing ceramides will help soothe and hydrate your skin which will speed up the recovery.

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.

3 Skincare Resolutions For 2018

Posted on January 4, 2018 by Ella Fedonenko

2018 is finally here, and we are looking for ways to look our best in the New Year. If skincare is one area you hope to improve upon, we can help turn your resolutions into a reality. Below are three beauty resolutions you should consider adding to your list, because they can have a big impact on your complexion and overall skin’s health.

 

  1. Apply Sunscreen Regularly

One of the easiest ways to prevent fine lines and wrinkles is to start incorporating sunscreen into your daily routine. Sunscreen should be applied regularly during daylight hours because the active ingredients lose their efficacy approximately two hours after the application. We recommend trying out SkinMedica’s line of Total Defense and Repair sunscreens because their innovative formulas are also highly effective at rejuvenating the skin.

 

  1. Exfoliate

One of the best ways to achieve a smoother and more refreshed appearance is through regular exfoliation.

For your homecare routine, we recommend SkinMedica’s AHA/BHA Cream because it offers gentle exfoliation with naturally derived alpha-hydroxy acids. More powerful exfoliation methods should be left to the experts who can perform medical grade chemical peels. This effective form of exfoliation can treat sun damage, acne scars, and various signs of aging.

 

  1. Treat and Prevent Premature Aging

The New Year might remind us that we are getting older, but with the right products, treatments, and lifestyle choices, we can dramatically slow down the aging process. If you are interested in achieving a more youthful complexion, there are a number of minimally invasive cosmetic enhancements to try that can rejuvenate and revitalize your skin. For instance, fillers and Botox can diminish the prominence of fine lines and wrinkles. Botox, in particular, is both a restorative and preventative treatment when it comes to treating the signs of aging.

How to Combat Neck Aging

Posted on December 28, 2017 by Ella Fedonenko

Smartphones have changed the way we live and interact with one another. We routinely find ourselves looking down at our mobile devices to check our latest notifications. Unfortunately, habitually craning our necks forward can be detrimental to the tone and texture of our skin.

The delicate skin around the neck is one of the first areas that begin to show signs of aging. When we flex our heads forward we create creases and folds in the skin, and over time it causes wrinkles formation. However, there are a number of ways to reverse the signs of aging. Here are our favorite treatments for the neck area:

  1. Laser Skin Resurfacing

When dealing with fine lines we recommend undergoing a series of laser skin resurfacing treatments. Laser resurfacing technology is one of the most effective tools at reducing the appearance of fine lines, and improving the overall quality of the skin.

  1. Kybella

Kybella is an injectable medication for fat reduction under the chin, and it’s an excellent choice for patients who want a slimmer and more toned neckline. This groundbreaking treatment can improve your facial profile immensely after just 2-4 treatments.

If you are concerned about premature aging, please schedule a consultation with us to see how we can help restore your youthfulness. Our trained staff uses the latest technology and research to help our patients manage all aspects of the aging process.
