Fall into great skiin

Fall may signal the return of plaid and Pumpkin Spice Lattes (no comment), but it also signals something you may have overlooked: a skincare regimen change-up. Because while finding that perfect cozy sweater to tuck into is easy enough, knowing exactly what’s happening to your skin as it transitions is a bit trickier. And it (unfortunately) shows. Here’s what you need to know about cold weather and skin health:

Zaps Moisture

Quench your skin’s thirst for more moisture by adding some essential hydration-packed products to your routine.

Causes Sallow Complexion

Bring back skin’s luster with monthly maintenance.

Depletes Internal Hydration

Eat and drink your way to a healthier, more hydrated complexion.

A gentle cleanser that hydrates while gently cleansing away dirt, debris, oil, and makeup is essential to keeping skin soft and supple.
We love: Revision Skincare’s Gentle Cleansing Lotion

A vitamin-rich, hydrating serum is ideal to help seal in moisture without blocking pores while reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

We love:  Revision Skincare’s Hydrating Serum

A moisturizer packed with hyaluronic acid and antioxidants is key in maintaining moisture levels

and reduce redness and inflammation while helping to calm and combat drynes.

We love: Glowbiotics MD’s Calm After the Storm

Cold temps constrict blood vessels and thus can hinder circulation, causing your complexion to look sallow. To ensure a healthy, radiant glow,  we highly suggest monthly maintenance with the Oxygen Facial. It helps to stimulate circulation along with a bevy of many other benefits.

Drink at least 8 glasses of water per day will keep your skin moisturized and help eliminate toxins effectively. Have an extra glass of water for every glass of alcohol/cup of coffee you take to prevent possible dehydration. Ingesting foods rich inOmega-3 essential fatty acids and antioxidants such as polyphenols, Vitamins A, C and E can help reverse summer damage, prepare it for the challenges it will face during fall and winter and boost the skin’s immune system while preserving its quality and restoring its natural glow.

The 411 on PRP

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) for Skin Rejuvenation

PRP has a long history of being used in orthopedic medicine, dentistry,and reconstructive surgery, and now its benefits are being applied to other fields of medicine such as dermatology, skin wound healing, and cosmetic facial rejuvenation. Scientific studies dating back 30 years have documented that PRP grows new collagen when delivered into the skin, and newer studies show that PRP can soften sun damage, skin texture, and the signs of aging.

Yes, your fountain of youth lies within you. Your very own plasma helps address a bevy of skin issues, including but not limited to:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Rosacea
  • Acne scarring
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Elastosis
  • Dull, lifeless complexion

What is PRP

A small amount of blood is drawn from you and placed in a sterile tube that is spun down in a centrifuge to separate the different components of the blood. Red and white blood cells are divided from the platelets and the plasma (the clear fluid). This plasma contains a higher than normal number of platelets and is called platelet rich plasma (PRP). Platelets help tissue to heal and grow new cells. The PRP that is penetrated into the skin by way of microneedling, acts as a matrix that promotes your own collagen to grow as it regenerates tissue and increases blood flow to naturally smooth, tighten, brighten, and oxygenate the skin. The result? Softer, smoother, and more supple skin with increased elasticity and hydration levels.

PRP stimulates your own collagen to grow which promotes total facial rejuvenation, yielding long lasting results.  This treatment improves overall volume, fullness, and skin tone and acts to improve overall quality, tightness, and texture of the skin.

The goal of PRP skin rejuvenation therapy is to improve skin tone and texture, tighten skin, soften lines and pores. Results begin to show immediately and increase over time.  Initially, three treatment sessions are recommended at four weeks apart, to achieve the best outcome.  Maintenance is scheduled as needed following the first three treatments.

We are currently in the process of training our staff to provide you with the highest level of service and the most intelligent results. We are excited to bring this truly remarkable rejuvenating treatment to you. Contact us today for more information: 262-657-5446

The Low Down on Acne Down Low

No pimple is created equal— Nor are the ways you conquer them. Here we give us the scoop on how to get rid of those pesky breakouts without wreaking havoc on your skin.

When a blemish appears, your body has incredible repair responses (unless an immune deficiency disorder is playing a role) that immediately recognize when an infection is present and then kick your white blood cells into high gear to heal it. The only real problem arises when you either think you’re helping or just plain “can’t take it,” and interfere with these natural healing processes, which ultimately makes things worse.

When you get a red, painful blemish, ONE of two things will happen: The infection inside the blemish will work its way up to the surface of the skin, resulting in a whitehead. This type of blemish is called a pustule. Sometimes the infection will NOT come up to the surface. It will stay deep within the skin until the body eventually re-absorbs it. I’m just going to hang out down here for a bit. This type of blemish is called a cyst.

Treating Pustular Blemishes
DO NOT TOUCH. It’s best to not act the minute you feel it coming on—instead wait a day or two for the infection to appear on the surface. Waiting will allow you to effectively control the blemish without damaging the skin. Once the whitehead is truly visible, gently squeeze out the infection with your fingers wrapped in tissue, and then apply a spot-drying treatment, we recommend mybody’s myHELPER, which will work its way into the skin and eradicate any lingering infection. If you apply a drying treatment before the whitehead is on the surface, it will simply dry out the surface of the skin, keeping the infection trapped underneath for longer. This will cause the infection to stretch to the surrounding skin tissue, which sets off a response that creates discoloration and leaves behind a dark acne scar that will linger for weeks or even months (reminding you well after it is healed what an atrocity it was).

What You Can Do About the Cystic Ones
Mostly occurring on the chin and jaw areas, it is important to remember that cysts will NEVER emerge onto the skin’s surface with a pustular whitehead. No matter what method you employ, cysts will never rise to the surface of the skin. WE MEAN ABSOLUTELY NO PICKING. EVER. Your best bet is to treat the cyst with gentle skincare, no physical exfoliation, and deep penetrating ingredients that will help treat infection and soothe the irritated layers of skin. We recommend a daily routine of myody skincare’s Take Control cleanser, Calm After the Storm serum, and Safety Blanket moisturizer and a spot treatment or weekly mask ritual of mybody’s Let Me Clarify to address the bevy of skin concerns with cystic acne. If the cysts worsen, seek medical attention from a dermatologist.

Also take note that using a daily regimen that helps keep skin hydrated, balanced, and protected is a great way to keep acne at bay. Hormones, stress, weather, diet, and genes all play an important role in skin types and conditions, so be aware of changes and have the appropriate treatments on hand.

See Spot Run

Seeing Spots? One of the most common misconceptions about discolored skin is that it will fade away by itself and that no treatment, of any kind, is necessary. Some types of pigmentation, like those caused by acne, can eventually lighten up over time  (time being the operative word as it can take a few months, if not longer before you see a difference). Is this a home care regimen solution? Partially. Addressing pigment is twofold – discoloration needs to be aggressively treated with office treatments and high-powered home care to fully eradicate spots on the surface. Not sure what to get done to see spot run (for good)? We’ve got the answers here.

If You Have Minimal Darkness, Try Microdermabrasion
During microdermabrasion, the uppermost layer of skin is gently removed, providing a smooth luminous, and clear complexion while reducing the appearance hyperpigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles. We LOVE and use Viora’s Pristine Diamond Tip.

If You Have More Stubborn Spots, Try a Chemical Peel
Salicylic acid, glycolic acid, and TCA chemical peels are often recommended to banish discoloration. Chemical peels are powerful at speeding up results and removing deeper pigment. Their potency can be manipulated to suit the type and depth of pigment. However, not every skin color is suitable for a peel, and if you have a history of scarring, you will need to find other options. We cannot get enough of the Glytone Professional Peels. They brighten, lighten, tighten, and address a bevy of skin concerns.

If You Have Discoloration From the Sun, Try Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)
A popular choice for targeting sun-induced discoloration, IPL involves light-based energy pulsed onto the skin while simultaneously targeting blood vessels. The light seeks out the discoloration in the skin to lift it up and out, providing you with an exceptionally clear complexion. IPL may cause some flaking and bronzing of the skin for a few days after the treatment.

If You Have Serious Discoloration That Won’t Budge, Try C02 Laser Resurfacing

 

This takes resurfacing to a whole other level. Two types of lasers most commonly used in laser resurfacing are carbon dioxide (CO2) and erbium. Each laser vaporizes skin cells damaged at the surface-level, providig a controlled and deep burn to the skin, promoting rejuventation and resurfacing. This skin will take up to two weeks to heal but the results are well worth it. The skin is firmer, healthier, and the complexion and tone are smooth and even.

No matter what course of treatment you go with, it’s important to avoid the sun and shield your skin with sunscreen every day. A broad-spectrum SPF of 15 is perfect in battling the sun’s harmful rays. Avoiding the sun at all costs, though, will be your best bet in addressing those pesky spots of excess pigment.

Clean Slate: Anti-Aging Skincare

If you’re looking to get rid of wrinkles or age spots, improve irregular pigmentation, and have an overall brighter complexion with younger looking skin, out top picks can help you address your concerns, treat the current state of your skin, and prevent future damage form occurring.

Every major skin care brand has anti-aging products – some are pretty good and others are worthless. As a consumer, it’s hard to rate anti-aging skin care products because you need to know the anti-aging skin care research, the chemistry involved in making skin care products, and the quality of a company’s chemist and product ingredients. Even then, it doesn’t hurt to be able to enlist a lot of volunteers to try the products so that you can see the results. That’s what we do, and that’s why we only use the highest quality, medical skincare available. Our line of boutique skincare options are crafted through extensive scientific research and are only available for purchase through medical practices  – not department stores, drug stores, or salons and spas.

Don’t waste any time when it comes to starting an anti-aging skin care routine – you want to ‘stop the clock’ on skin aging as soon as possible! Time really is of the essence. Whether you are just looking for the best sunscreen to stop additional sun damage or you want a product that will soften wrinkles, reduce age spots, or load your skin with age-fighting antioxidants, you need to sort through the millions of products on the market. We have a list of what we recommend and why we recommend it.

A broad spectrum sunscreen. Sunscreen needs to be worn every day on exposed skin and should contain 5% or more zinc oxide for the best protection to fight UV damage.

A product that contains ingredients capable of stimulating new collagen synthesis (collagen renewal) inside your skin. The only three proven ingredient actives for collagen synthesis are retinoids, vitamin C, and glycolic acid. The “devil is in the details” however, and most products are not created with either enough of these ingredients or stable formulations of these ingredients. Antioxidant-rich products with green tea polyphenols and vitamin C. These two antioxidants have solid scientific evidence proving that they really work to help fight skin damage that leads to aging. Again, most products on the market contain a fairy dusting of these ingredients incorrectly formulated, meaning they will not deliver the promised results. You’ll see the transformation in the mirror once you add them to your complete anti-aging skin care routine.

Skin brighteners. These include physical exfoliating scrubs, brushes, or sponges, as well as ingredient actives that remodel and brighten your complexion, such as retinoids and AHA/BHAs like glycolic acid. We’re proud to have the best products that can get you the best results available today. Know you are using only proven anti-aging ingredients and concentrating your efforts on only what works, not on marketing fantasies. Build your anti-aging skin care routine from my compatible products, and we believe you can’t find a more effective anti-aging skin care routine anywhere. The products here represent the best quality anti-aging wrinkle creams, skin brighteners, sunscreens, antioxidant products, and all the products you need for skin rejuvenation. Build your complete anti-aging skin care routine with my proven products and see what a difference it makes!

We recommend a Complete Skin Care Routine including these steps and products:

Cleanse – Revision’s Brightening Facial Wash
Correct – Revision’s Vitamin C Lotion 30%, mybody’s A TEAM, and Revision’s Nectifirm
Hydrate – mybody’s myHERO Probiotic Replenishing Lotion
Protect – Revision’s Multi-Protection Broad-Spectrum SPF 50

Some products can serve more than one step and are listed under every step they can address. Understand that the most important products in an anti-aging skin care routine are used in steps 2 and 4, which are the steps for Correct and Protect.

Cleansers and moisturizers should support the products you use in these steps. Pick your cleanser and moisturizer based on your skin type and how they make your skin feel. Pick your sunscreen for step 4 (protect) based on your skin type and product preference. Pick products for step 2 (correct) based on your goals, budget, and how your skin responds to the rejuvenating ingredients.

Our  goal is to help you ‘stop the clock’ on your skin’s aging, and these products and my unique regimen kits will help you do just that.

SPF: Three little letters with huge benefits

May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month
With 3.5 million cases in over two million people diagnosed annually, skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States. Awareness is the first step in treating and preventing skin cancer.
Be informed. Be proactive. Be protected.

 

You’re a pro when it comes to protecting against sun damage – You’ve got sunscreen on your key chain, in your lip balm, and all over your skin. But you could still have plenty of sun damage left over from your youth (the memories of iodine and baby oil are not distant enough). The accumulation of damage isn’t just skin deep – UV radiation alters the actual DNA of your skin cells, resulting in lines, wrinkles, discoloration, and even cancer. But here’s a ray of (UV-free) light: You can reverse the damage. Using SPF daily will stop the process of additional damage and start to reverse, to some extent, what you’ve already accumulated. Additionally, incorporating the following products into your daily regimen will help obliterate the signs of a sun-filled past.

Light the way with Vitamin A

Reduce wrinkles, fade brown spots, and smooth roughness with this power-packed skin supplement. Vitamin A exfoliates, making skin smooth and even-toned; repairs the cellular structure of the epidermis, optimizing your UV protection; and decreases clustering of melanin granules, reducing brown spots or pigmentation.

We Love: mybody’s A TEAM

This dynamic anti-aging and clarifying treatment helps minimize fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, and blemishes and helps increase new cellular regeneration without typical redness or peeling.

Proven to effectively increase new cellular regeneration

Provides maximum anti-aging effects with minimal to no redness or inflammation

Visible reduction of fine lines and wrinkles and a clearer complexion

“C” clearly now the pigment is gone

Vitamin C is an essential component in the body’s production of collagen and a potent antioxidant that can help rejuvenate aged and photodamaged skin.
As levels of vitamin C in the skin decline with age, replenishing levels directly in the skin can help combat collagen degradation and oxidative stress. Results from clinical trials show that when applied topically, vitamin C promotes collagen formation and mitigates the effects of free radicals, helping to maintain firm and youthful skin.

We Love: mybody’s BRIGHTAMIN-C

This radical lipid-based Vitamin C works more effectively to brighten, lift and tighten while imparting antioxidant protection.

Regnerates healthy collagen for maximum resilience

Reduces wrinkles and other signs of photodamage

Fights free radical damage more efficiently

Protect and Serve

To use SPF is a no brainer – we know, you have it on your key chain, in your lip balm, in spray form, balm form, and lotion form. But do you have it in an all-in-one magical product that also adapts to your skin color and helps hydrate and tone the skin? We didn’t think so.

We love: Revision Skincare’s Intellishadde

Outsmart the signs of aging® with this award-winning tinted moisturizer that gives skin a touch of sheer, healthy color. Formulated with a blend of three peptides and broad-spectrum UVA and UVB protection, it’s the smart way to care for your skin. Whether you perform a dewy, hydrated finish or more of a matte effect, they have options for you.

94% of clinical study participants experienced smoother, brighter, more even-toned skin*

Moisturizes and blends naturally with the color of your skin

Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles

Provides broad-spectrum UV protection

Fights photodamage which causes premature aging

Microneedling: Rejuvenation and Collagen Stimulation

http://thebeautycentrebraintree.co.uk/facial-treatments/what-is-micro-needlingdermal-roller/

 

Microneedling, although the name may be initially off-putting, as more power at its tip than ever before, and has made a long way from its beginnings. Microneedling’s performance has been taken to the next level by providing the superior skin rejuvenation and collagen formation.

This procedure helps to rejuvenate the complexion by creating tiny microchannels in the skin by way of needles that stimulate natural repair mechanisms, in return stimulating new collagen formation. While you may feel slight discomfort during the treatment, it provides dynamically dramatic results when it comes to acne scars, stretch marks, lines and wrinkles and improving your skin’s overall texture and skin resiliency by increasing collagen production.

Another tremendous benefit of microneedling is its ability to allow other skin-building ingredients to more effectively penetrate the skin, where they can affect the skin at a deeper cellular level. These properties may make microneedling an excellent treatment for addressing the concerns of aging and hyperpig­mented skin. Ensure the best results by combining this treatment with an at-home regimen of growth factors, antioxidants, peptides, and hyaluronic acid for more even dramatic results. We highly recommend these few additions to your home care regimen:

myHERO Multivitamin Youth Serum

Multivitamin Youth Serum Like a powerful multi-vitamin for your skin, this vital anti-aging multi-tasker combines plant-based growth factor peptides, key antioxidants, retinol boosters, a unique DNA repair complex with instant skin tighteners and brighteners. It’s everything your skin needs in one bottle for a revolutionary skin-saving HERO!

YOUTH OVERNIGHT Brightening Repair Cream

This elegant light-weight cream imparts essential moisture, fatty acids and plumping ingredients while minimizing the appearance of brown spots. Skin looks and feels hydrated, radiant and youthful looking.

Practice Safe Sun: The FYI on SPF

spf

Have you made the acquaintance of SPF for year-round protection?

Well, let us introduce you…..

What is SPF?

The Sun Protection Factor (SPF) displayed on sunscreen labels ranges anywhere from as low as 2 to as high as 100 and refers to the product’s ability to screen or block out the sun’s harmful rays.

Here’s how it works: If it takes 20 minutes for your unprotected skin to start turning red, using an SPF 15 sunscreen theoretically prevents reddening 15 times longer – about five hours. Consumers need to be aware that SPF protection does not increase proportionally with an increased SPF number. While an SPF of 2 will block 50% of ultraviolet radiation, an SPF of 15 blocks 93% and an SPF of 30 block 95%.

Make SPF Your BFF

The Foundation of Healthy Skin

  • Dermatologists strongly recommend using a sunscreen with an SPF 15 – SPF 30 year-round for all skin types.
  • The sun’s rays know no bounds – SPF is imperative every day of every season. If you’re shades and blinds are open, you’re exposed to the sun’s harmful rays. Daytime activities of driving, running errands, walking the dog, etc… expose you to the sun. Even the cloudiest days aren’t enough to protect you from the sun. Apply SPF daily to every area that is exposed.
  • Apply sunscreen 30 minutes prior to sun exposure so it can effectively protect you against the sun’s harmful rays.
  • Make sure to protect more than your face! Apply to your ears, neck, decollete, hands – any and every area that is exposed to the sun.
  • Always apply before your makeup and after your moisturizer.
  • Generally speaking, if you are in the sun for a prolonged (more than 20 minutes) amount of time, re-apply your SPF every hour to ensure maximum protection.
  • Waterproof? Not really…. SPF can only withstand so much perspiration, clhorine, fresh water and salt water, so reapply these types of sunscreens every hour as well.
  • Be sure to cover often-missed spots: lips, ears, around eyes, neck, scalp if hair is thinning, hands, and feet.
  • Choose a PABA free broad-spectrum (providing proportional protection against UVA and UVB rays) sunscreen.

The SPF Alphabet

UVA, UVB, and the ABCDEs

  • UVA (Aging Rays – those rays that penetrate deeper into the skin and are the culprits in premature aging and wrinkling of the skin) and UVB (Burning Rays – the chief cause of skin reddening and sunburn, tends to damage the skin’s more superficial epidermal layers.) are both equally harmful to the skin.
  • By damaging the skin’s cellular DNA, excessive UV radiation produces genetic mutations that can lead to skin cancer.
  • Many experts believe that, especially for fair-skinned people, UV radiation also frequently plays a key role in melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer, which kills more than 8,000 Americans each year.
  • Tanning beds expose you to 100x more UVA rays than the sun.
  • Your risk of melanoma increases by 75% when you use tanning beds before the age of 35.
  • Last year, the International Agency for Research on Cancer shifted indoor tanning devices to the highest cancer risk category: “carcinogenic to humans.” They were formerly classified as “probably carcinogenic to humans.”
  • Tanning can be addictive. For some people, UV radiation can have a druglike effect; they feel dependent on it and can experience withdrawal symptoms.
  • Not only are tanning-bed users more vulnerable to melanoma, they’re also 2½ times more likely to be diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma and 1½ times more susceptible to basal cell carcinoma.
  • Look for the ABCDEs of melanoma, and if you see one or more, make an appointment with a physician immediately.

A

Asymmetric:  If you draw a line through this mole, the two halves will not match.

B

Border:  The borders of an early melanoma tend to be uneven. The edges may be scalloped or notched.

C

Color:  Having a variety of colors is another warning signal. A number of different shades of brown, tan or black could appear. A melanoma may also become red, blue or some other color.

D

Diameter:  Melanomas usually are larger in diameter than the size of the eraser on your pencil (1/4 inch or 6 mm), but they may sometimes be smaller when first detected.

 E

Evolving:  Any change – in size, shape, color, elevation, or another trait, or any new symptom such as bleeding, itching or crusting – points to danger.

Radiant, healthy skin can be yours by employing these practices into your daily regimen. We think this is the beginning pf beautiful friendship.

Erase the Beauty Sins of Summer

It was a wonderful summer. You swam in lakes and seas, ran through fields, finished books, and felt the sun on your face in far-flung destinations. The sillage of sunscreen, salt, and sand is still heavy on your beach bags and eyelet sundresses. But no matter how low-key or carefree your vacation behavior, your sudden intimacy with the sun has most likely resulted in a state of epidermal disarray. But all it takes to remedy your summer sins-when it comes to your skin at least-are a few easy steps and standby products.
Returning to complexion perfection could be as simple as returning to a purposeful skin care regimen. Reintroduce or get acquainted with radiance-boosting cleansers (we LOVE Revision’s Papaya Enzyme Cleanser), scrubs (get glowing with Revision’s Finishing Touch),  and treatment products (mybody’s A-TEAM is a dream)  to put you on the path to porelessness. For additional cleanup, a glowing, smooth surface can be found at the hands of an at-home peel (myboy’s new GLOWBIOTICS provides instant resurfacing) performed three times per week.
It’s no secret that prolonged UV exposure from lazy days on the sand can lead to fine lines, wrinkles, and dark spots. For this, too, we suggest first tackling the problem at home before bed with brightening formulas. mybody’s BRIGHTAMIN C  Give your skin the radiant glow you desire with quality skincare you deserve. Radical lipid-based Vitamin C works more effectively than traditional Vitamin C products to brighten, lift and tighten while imparting antioxidant protection; mybody’s myHERO is a powerful multi-vitamin for your skin, this vital anti-aging multi-tasker combines plant-based growth factor peptides, key antioxidants, retinol boosters, a unique DNA repair complex with instant skin tighteners and brighteners; Revision’sRetinol Complete contains encapsulated Retinol for maximum efficacy and minimal irritation,reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and brightens and evens skin tone. For more stubborn dark spots, skin may require an in-office boost to jump-start their line-smoothing and complexion-evening results. Tone and texture can be corrected through a series ofmicrodermabrasion treatments to improve skin texture and tone while decreasing surface pigmentation; intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy sessions to clear skin of sun spots, irregular pigmentation, small capillaries, general redness and is also effective in reducing pore size. IPL can treat face, neck, chest, arms, legs and hands. Recommended as a series for best results.Fall is looking brighter still!
