MICRONEEDLING WITH PRP!

PIN microneedling

Microneedling with PRP is a cosmetic treatment that stimulates collagen production by rolling fine needles over the skin and applying platelets, which are one of the components of blood. The addition of PRP from the blood may make microneedling more effective. … These proteins help skin tissue repair itself. PRP is created from a person’s own blood, and is a concentrated blend of plasma cells and specific growth factors. This blood sample that is taken in office is then placed into a centrifuge which separates the plasma from the red and white blood cells. Plasma contains a high concentration of stem cells, platelets, and growth factors to help stimulate collagen and elastin production for youthful-looking skin.

What are the Benefits of Microneedling with PRP?

  • Reduces broken capillaries and spider veins.
  • Reduces the appearance of large pores.
  • Reduces acne and acne scarring
  • Evens skin tone, acne, acne scarring,

ASK KOURTNEY KARDASHIAN – WHY WARMING HONEY CLEANSER?

There’s no celebrity better suited to guide you through the world of organic and all-natural beauty brands than Kourtney Kardashian. The eldest Kardashian not only regularly shares the importance of all-natural skincare on her website Poosh, but she even previously lobbied in D.C. for FDA regulations on cosmetics and beauty products.

Luckily, the ‘Queen of Clean’ regularly shares her top clean beauty picks on her lifestyle site. In fact, that’s exactly how many discovered the iS Clinical Warming Honey Cleanser which is a current staple in Kardashian’s skincare routine.

The mom-of-three gave the exfoliating cleanser her stamp of approval and explained that she loves how the gentle, honey-based formula warms up as its massaged into the skin. Plus, she said the blemish-banishing gel actually tastes delicious, too (in case you were wondering about the taste…).

“When you’re massaging it onto your face, a little gets into your mouth, and it tastes so good,” Kardashian..I literally want to eat it.”

While we wouldn’t recommend *actually* eating this honey cleanser by the spoonful, Kardashian’s willingness to ingest a little cleanser does speak to her trust in the skincare brand. Plus, she mentioned that she’s also a huge fan of the iS Clinical Pro-Heal Serum a nourishing serum packed with soothing Vitamin C and blemish-fighting kojic acid.

Despite a delightfully sweet taste, there are plenty of other benefits you’ll find from this facial cleanser. It’s packed with antioxidant-rich Japanese Green Tea extract, glycerin, and exfoliating papaya enzymes—meaning each application not only clears out your pores, but also leaves your skin ultra-hydrated and undeniably smooth.

Even though we’ve never seen Kardashian with a blemish, this cleanser is also ideal for acne-prone skin. The combination of amino acids and antioxidants from the honey, royal jelly, and propolis make it a great benefit for fighting blemishes.

PPE SKINCARE SURVIVAL KIT IS HERE!

Wearing a mask has just become another part of your routine. They’re more or less invisible, especially in public parks, grocery stores, and city streets.

But for all the good they do, you may be noticing a few annoying problems beyond your foggy glasses: itchy skin, pesky pimples, and oily blackheads, to name a few. That’s because constantly wearing a face mask can inadvertently do a number on your skin, “Face masks can be harmful to the skin in two ways.  “First, direct friction can damage the outer skin layer, leading to irritation and inflammation. Second, masks trap humidity, sweat, and oil on the skin.” In turn, this creates an environment that encourages microorganisms to flourish, worsening conditions like acne and rosacea.

Face masks are essential, and you should not stop wearing them because of skin issues. But you can mitigate any potential damage by giving your skin a bit of love and taking care of your face coverings properly.

glowMD Laser MEdSpa is now offering a PPE SkinCare Kit to help with the skin issues that can arise from wearing a mask daily. The kit has the following products:

Cleansing Complex is an exfoliating product that removes dead skin cells, oil, dirt and impurities from deep within pores. This face wash helps you maintain clear skin and controls acne breakouts. The exfoliating ingredients in this glycolic acid cleanser also create an even texture and smooth surface.

Active Serum: This fast-acting, long-term, results-oriented formula decreases the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, visibly evens skin tone, and is excellent for blemish-prone skin. … Excellent for all skin types and for all ages, this powerful botanical serum leaves the skin moist and smooth.

Recovery Balm: Calms and encourages skin recovery while immersing severely dry skin in deep, healthy hydration. Formulated with ceramides to lock-in moisture behind an antimicrobial, this ultra-soothing balms helps prevent the appearance of scarring and maximize your results.

Make sure you are generous with your sunscreen when applying all over your face! You wouldn’t want that dreaded mask tan! We offer EltaMD Sunscreen with many options to suite your lifestyle. We can guide you to look for an oil-free, non-comedogenic product, as these are formulated to be non-pore clogging.

INFLAMMATION & SKIN AGING

Inflammation affects the skin in a myriad of ways, but is particularly damaging when combined with the effects of aging. However, there are many ways to remedy the causes of inflammation and to minimize its effects.

In this post, we will discuss how to recognize inflammation and why it is especially connected with the aging process. We also offer methods to reduce not only the appearance of inflammation, but the actual inflammatory process itself.

comparison of young and old face

IDENTIFYING INFLAMMATION

Inflammation is usually considered to be part of a skin disease, such as rosacea or acne, and it certainly is. However, ongoing inflammation affects every decline in skin health and is an important driver of skin aging. If inflammatory processes could be decreased – and they can! – then aging would be slowed, skin health would improve and beauty would increase.

Not only is inflammation present when it appears as redness, warmth, discomfort and swelling but it is also present, whether it is visible or not, during aging. Furthermore, stress from any cause is quite inflammatory. Inflammation accelerates aging, so much so that a new word was coined by scientists and doctors to describe this close connection – “inflammaging”. Inflammation and aging are so associated with one another that they can be spoken of as a single word.

INFLAMMATION AND AGE

Older persons have more inflammatory markers in their blood stream compared to younger persons. This is known to be true because these levels have been measured in large numbers of people. For those of the same age, persons with healthier skin and a healthier body have lower levels of inflammation compared to those with less healthy skin or bodies.

Even in groups of people of the same age and with the same medical problem – such as diabetes, for example – diabetics who have their condition under good control have fewer circulating inflammatory molecules than diabetics whose disease is under poor control. These levels also predict how rapidly health will decline unless interventions are taken.

CONTROLLING INFLAMMATION

There are many ways for an individual to decrease their personal level of inflammation. One solution is to take oral supplements, such as curcumin, which have been shown to decrease inflammation in the body. Another option is to adopt practices like meditation, yoga, mindfulness training and exercise, which decrease the body’s molecules that communicate stress and encourage inflammation in the skin and other tissues.

Many lifestyle modifiers working through epigenetics also positively impact the inflammatory process; some of these include diet, exercise, smoking cessation, stress reduction, social connection, spirituality and a positive outlook on life.

SKIN CARE AND INFLAMMATION

Topical skincare products are an accessible and effective way of reducing skin’s inflammation and improving skin aging, especially when they are of excellent quality. Many ingredients in skincare products reduce “inflammaging”. Some of these include ADVANCE+ Vitamin C, olive leaf extract/oleuropein, Vitamin E, Vitamin A, antioxidants and Centella asiatica. Additionally, using sunscreen lessens inflammation and decreases the risk of skin aging and skin cancer.

TREATING INFLAMMATION WITH iS CLINICAL SKINCARE

 All botanicals in iS CLINICAL products have antioxidant ability and double as anti-inflammatories. An iS CLINICAL product that is a hero in reducing inflammation is PRO-HEAL SERUM ADVANCE+. Other skin care products in the iS CLINICAL line with excellent anti-inflammatory activity include SUPER SERUM ADVANCE+EXTREME PROTECT SPF30ECLIPSE SPF50+GENEXC SERUM, WHITE LIGHTENING COMPLEX and REPARATIVE MOISTURE EMULSION.

Every individual has much more control over their own inflammatory processes than they may realize. With the correct knowledge and habits, it is easy to make positive impacts on ones skin aging, skin health and beauty every day.

Dermaplaning Pro – The Pro’s & Con’s

dermaplane pro logo

 

One of the trendiest hair-removal options today is dermaplaning, which is performed using a scalpel to manually exfoliate dead skin cells from the face. “Dermaplaning is a physical exfoliation method that requires the use of a sterile surgical scalpel to gently shave the top layer of the skin, the stratum corneum, dead skin layer, and vellus hair, aka peach fuzz,”. This treatment results in ultra-smooth, fresh, and brighter skin. By removing that dead layer and hair from the face, the skin is evened out, and it helps with cell metabolism, which helps new skin come to the surface.” But is dermaplaning just a passing trend? Or is it a treatment worth investing in? Here are some pros and cons:

PROS:

  • It painlessly exfoliates the stratum corneum to stimulate cellular turnover with little to no downtime.
  • It is a great option for clients with sensitive skin and pregnant women who are looking for a deep exfoliation.
  • It can be performed prior to treatments like facials, laser, microdermabrasion, and chemical peels for better product penetration.
  • It can be performed frequently.
  • It helps makeup go on smoother and more evenly.
  • It can help significantly lighten postinflammatory scars from past acne.
  • It does not make the hair grow back thicker and darker.

CONS:

  • The results might not be as long-lasting as other hair-removal methods, such as waxing, as the hair is not removed from the root, but a much better experience. Laser hair removal does not smooth out skin or reduce light hair. Dermaplaning does both!
  • Results will differ depending on a client’s individual hair-growth cycle.
  • Not everyone is a candidate. Clients with active and cystic acne should avoid this type of hair removal, as it can cause further irritation. Also, it is contraindicated for clients with hirsutism, a condition of excessive male-pattern hair growth in women.

Vi Peel Experience the Beauty of Peeling

 

For All Skin Types! …..The VI Peel is a relatively new treatment that employs a combination of TCA, Salicylic, Retin-a, Phenol, and Vitamin C for the achievement of optimal results for all skin types and color. It is a treatment designed for anti-aging and to clear acne skin conditions in both adults and teens and improve the skin’s tone and texture by reducing age spots, freckles, and uneven hyperpigmentation, including melasma. Chemical peel treatments remove the outer, “dead” layers of the skin or epidermis. This allows the epidermis to become more permeable to nutrients. In addition, peels help reduce fine lines, smooth the skin, reduce the appearance of scars, and give a softer, suppler appearance to skin.

The Vi Peel has been safely used to manage acne in patients as young as 13 years of age and is effective for use on darker skin tones that have not historically responded well to other chemical peel procedures. With new innovations such as the ViPeel,for the first time African-American and darker skin types such as some Asian and Latin skins can all benefit from the anti-aging and restorative skin care that was not previously available.

The Vi Peel tackles skin problems at the cellular level rather than just burning skin off. We now understand what a chemical peel in general does, but the question is what makes a Vi Peel any different? The Vi Peel has many acids and vitamins work together to erase fine lines and wrinkles, minimize enlarged pores, and build collagen and elastin to tighten the skin. It is extremely effective in practically eliminating hyper pigmentation including melasma, the most difficult pigmentation issue to address. The Vi Peel also provides excellent results for acne and acne scarring.

The application process can take up to 30 minutes and involves the chemical solution being topically applied to the skin. The peel is then left on the skin for six hours and washed off by the patient at home, or you may sleep with it on overnight. Some patients experience light stinging during application, which subsides quickly.

The VI Peel is virtually painless and requires no skin preparation and little downtime. The Vi Peel also works well in conjunction with lasers and injectable as well to achieve an overall improvement if desired!

What is a Carbon Laser Facial?

Exclusively at glowMD Laser MedSpa – Our new Carbon Laser Facial that gives your complexion a clear, smooth and radiant glow.

Carbon Laser Facials are a revolutionary, non-invasive, painless with virtually no-downtime procedure that helps rejuvenate the appearance of aging and damaged skin. It gently removes the top layer of skin, leaving an amazing glow with a vibrant, youthful complexion.

Also known as a China Doll Laser Facial, Hollywood Peel, Black Doll Laser Facial or Charcoal Black Doll Facial, this gentle procedure is safe on all skin types. It is a great way to get a quick skin refresher without the longer downtime associated with other laser procedures. It evens skin tone, reducing appearance of pigment, fine lines, and acne scars.

How do Hollywood stars, models, and media personalities keep their skin glowing and unblemished year after year? This and many of our other laser skin treatments can leave you looking and feeling your best following the procedure. With this treatment, you’ll benefit from a procedure that has given many of our patients the results they want, through a safe procedure.

How it works.
We’ll apply a layer of liquid carbon to your face (or body), allowing it to penetrate deeply into your pores and let it dry. The carbon bonds with any debris that might be present, like dead skin cells, contaminants and oil.

We’ll then pass a laser across the surface of your skin. Because the laser light is super attracted to carbon particles, its energy and heat is absorbed by the carbon paste destroying the particles in your pores.

Light from the laser is attracted to the carbon. The carbon absorbs the light energy. The reaction causes a mini explosion. The explosion pushes the energy, in the form of heat, deep into the layers of the skin where elastin and collagen are activated and cells begin producing anew. Meanwhile, on the surface of the skin, as the explosion occurs the carbon is vaporized along with any dirt, oil or dead skin cells. Sounds kind of scary, with all the explosions and vaporizing, but don’t worry. There’s very little discomfort or pain. The sensation has been described as a mild tingling or very slight pinch.

Who can benefit from this treatment?

For those who want to combat the signs of aging, Carbon Laser Facials can rejuvenate your skin by:

  • Reducing the signs of premature aging
  • Improving skin integrity and radiance
  • Reducing fine lines and wrinkles
  • Increasing skin tone and texture
  • Stimulating collagen growth for firmer, plumper skin
  • Reducing oily skin or exfoliating dry skin
  • Erasing or fading yellow/brown pigmentation
  • Shrinking scars (must be young scars of a small diameter).

Which celebrities use them?

A-listers Kim Kardashian, who is also a fan of the vampire facial, is said to get a carbon laser facial. Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Aniston, both exes of Brad Pitt, are reported to have them done.

No matter by what name you might know it, the principle is the same. CLF (carbon laser facial) is a non-ablative laser skin treatment that uses the conductive qualities of carbon to quickly and painlessly exfoliate, cleanse, clear and tighten pores, brighten and even-out skin tone and activate a deeply rejuvenating skin reaction that produces skin that is smooth, plump and radiant!

Carbon Laser Facials are safe and effective for all types of acne and can:

  • Gently clear your pores to help reduce blackheads and whiteheads
  • Eliminates the need to extract comedones
  • Simultaneously targets acnebacteria and shrinks your sebaceous glands for reduced oil production, congestion and outbreaks
  • Decreases cyst size, papules and nodules

What can I expect?
Your skin will feel immediately smoother and look instantly refreshed. Better still, there’s zero downtime! You can return to your daily activities immediately following your treatment – your skin may appear slightly red but this should disappear within a few hours. We recommend you use SPF 30+ and avoid abrasive exfoliates or other invasive skin treatments for a few days.

How long do results last?
It will depend on the condition of your skin, your skin type and your lifestyle.

You’ll probably notice results after a single treatment. However, for long-term results, we recommend regular treatments – 4-6 treatments are optimal, spaced 2-4 weeks apart.

Please note: If you’ve recently had dermal filler or toxin treatments, we’ll recommend you wait a minimum of 2 weeks before undergoing Carbon Laser Skin Rejuvenation.

Will it hurt?
No! The treatment is gentle, non-invasive and painless. You’ll probably hear a small pulse as we target the carbon particles in your pores with the laser. Our clients describe the feeling as warm or prickly but not painful.

Call us for a free assessment to see if the Carbon Facial is good for you! 540-371-7118

 

 

COLLAGEN P.I.N. DIFFERENT FROM LASERS?

PIN microneedling

At GlowMD Laser MedSpa, we all know as we age our ability to regenerate new skin cells and collagen diminishes.

Years of trauma to our skin leaves a lasting mark, contributing to aging factors such as scarring, pigmentation, fine lines, and overall pore size and texture. There are a wide away of effective methods to treat and rejuvenate your skin from laser based treatments, chemical peels and finally micro-needling.

Micro-needling is a method of introducing a controlled wound into the skin triggering a release of natural growth factors, new collagen & elastin.

 This process causes much less damage to the epidermis than dermal rolling and other ablative treatments, which helps to protect the new skin cell growth providing for quicker healing and a much higher success rate for overall and longer lasting results.

(Percutaneous Induction Needling, also referred to as PCIT, Percutaneous Collagen Induction Therapy… a.k.a. micro-needling, or automated micro-needling)

P.I.N. is a method of introducing a controlled wound into the skin triggering a release of natural growth factors, new collagen & elastin. This process causes much less damage to the epidermis than dermal rolling or lasers and other ablative treatments, which helps to protect the new skin cell growth providing for quicker healing, higher success rates and longer lasting results.

WHAT IS AUTOMATED MICRO-NEEDLING?

Automated Micro-Needling (also known as Percutaneous Collagen Induction Therapy or PCIT) is a new innovation in aesthetic medicine for the treatment of fine lines, acne scars and improvement of the skin’s appearance. During this procedure, tiny needles are used to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin in order to produce collagen and elastin. The skin’s repair process results in a thicker dermis with the appearance of softer wrinkles. Automated micro-needling also creates superficial micro-channels, which allow topical serums and creams to be absorbed more effectively into the skin. Collagen P.I.N. is the most advanced medical-grade automated micro-needling device on the market. Click below and let us help you find a Collagen P.I.N. provider in your area today.

HOW IS COLLAGEN P.I.N. DIFFERENT FROM THE DERMAL NEEDLING ROLLERS OF THE PAST?

Micro-needling rollers are the previous generation of needling devices. One of the many drawbacks of dermal rollers is the fixed needle or penetration depth (i.e. 0.5mm) which is not very conducive when treating an area like the face which requires different depths due to the varying thickness of skin tissue, depending on the area(s) being treated. Therefore, having a fixed needle depth or penetration level is a huge drawback when trying to customize a treatment for consistency. Collagen P.I.N. ™ has an adjustable needle depth that allows your skincare provider to adjust penetration depth throughout the entire treatment. This will allow the medical provider to properly address the specific needs of thinner skin on your lower eyelids, crow’s feet, and forehead. Additionally, where the tissue is thicker in other areas, like the upper lip, cheeks (due to fat pads), neck and décolletage, the necessary adjustments can easily be treated with 1 needle tip instead of 5 or 6 needle rollers. The other dramatic difference is in the type of injury that occurs using the Collagen P.I.N. versus a Dermal Needling Roller.

HOW IS COLLAGEN P.I.N. DIFFERENT FROM LASERS?

When used correctly resurfacing lasers can be a great tool for treating aging skin. However, lasers use focused light to produce heat to destroy certain colors of pigmentation and vaporizes skin. This is great for targeting dark spots but often leads to complications when treating patients with naturally darker skin. Collagen P.I.N. ™ breaks up pigment mechanically and remodels the collagen without heat or the light. When the heat is removed from the process, it makes for a much safer, more comfortable and more consistent treatment. No heat also equals less downtime! Most Collagen P.I.N. ™ patients have a healthy pink glow immediately after the procedure, which lessens dramatically within 24 hours or less. Most patients are back to work the same day and out to dinner the same evening and experience little to no downtime.

HOW IS THE PROCEDURE DONE?

A sterile needle-tip containing 12 to 36(optional) tiny micro-needles is attached to the Collagen P.I.N. ™. Your skincare professional will apply a thin layer of topical serum to your skin and select the appropriate treatment depth based on your unique needs. Next, in a single motion, the Collagen P.I.N. will be gently glided across the skin in one direction until the entire treatment area has been covered. This results in thousands of microscopic channels throughout the entire treatment area.

SUFFERING FROM ROSACEA?

Rosacea Awareness Month is here for the entire month of April to help raise awareness of this widespread yet often misunderstood chronic facial disorder that affects an estimated 16 million Americans – and many more worldwide. Rosacea is a very common disorder characterized by symptoms of facial flushing and a collection of other clinical signs such as facial redness, broken capillaries, coarseness of the skin, and an inflammatory eruption that may be similar to acne.

Not only does springtime align with Rosacea Awareness Month, it is referred to by many doctors as “rosacea season” due to the change in weather causing flare-ups in many sufferers. Be proactive in your skin’s health and schedule an appointment with your dermatologist this month if it’s been awhile since your last visit. If you haven’t seen a medical professional yet and are self-treating your signs and symptoms, consider this month your motivation to seek proper diagnosis and treatment.

VBEAM LASER TREATMENT

Full Face Treatment $300–Save $100

Hemangiomas, Rosacea, Acne Scars

Blood vessel lasers are one of the mainstays of rosacea treatment. We use the V-beam pulsed dye laser. When this type of laser is fired, the light from the laser is selectively absorbed by red blood in the face. Following the laser pulse, the laser energy is transmitted to the blood vessel wall, which leads to a narrowing of the blood vessel wall and a shrinking of the size of the blood vessel. This in turn leads to a reduction in facial redness.

Book Now and Receive a Brightening Vitamin C Serum for $55.00 Save $55.00!

glowMD Laser MedSpa will treat your acne/rosacea with the V-Beam in an effective and safe way with little or no downtime. Call 540-371-9098 to learn more about why glowMD Laser MedSpa is a trusted source for effective rosacea treatment in Fredericksburg and Central Virginia.
