Holiday Skincare Tips – Let It Glow!

Skincare Tips for the Holidays

rolled towels with christmas accessories

 

The holiday season can take a toll on your skin. From the non stop eating to the late night partying on new years, our skin does a little freaking out. We are overwhelmed with stress, party planning, shopping for that perfect outfit, etc. Here are some tips on how to keep your skin looking it’s best during the holiday season.

Keep the skin clean and moisturized. Before applying your foundation, moisturize your skin with an oil free moisturize, then you can apply your make up primer if you happen to be using our wonderful skincare makeup jane iredale!. A primer along will not work to moisturize the skin. Properly moisturizing the skin allows a perfect base for your foundation. Before going to bed, always cleanse your skin and remove all traces of makeup. Never ever fall asleep without cleansing your skin. Its worth the effort to put 5 minute in to clean and treat with some type of anti-aging products such as Retin A, or GeneXC by iS Clinical! Your skin will be anti-aging as you sleep!

Exfoliate once a week with a peel or facial. We tend to apply more make up than usual during the holidays to look fabulous. A lot of ladies opt for a 12 hour foundation to keep their make up in place through out the whole night. By exfoliating the skin, you are not only prepping the skin for a smooth foundation application, but you are removing all the dead skin cells and impurities that can lead to breakouts. We suggest Cleansing Complex by iS Clinical which is full of botanical acids which deep cleans your face. We also offer our 10% Glycolic Moisturizing Wash by our private label GlowMD.

Drink lots of water. People are known to drink more alcohol during the holidays than any time of the year. Waking up the next day dehydrated can not only affect your body, but your skin as well. Try to minimize your alcohol intake and drink more than the recommended 8 glasses of water a day.

Last but not least, keep your make up brushes extra clean. We apply more make up during the holidays to get that perfect look and need to take care of our makeup brushes that are also getting a little bit of a workout. Whether it’s a foundation brush, beauty blender, contouring brush, or eye shadow brush, it has to be kept clean. Keep your makeup brushes in excellent shape with jane iredale Botanical Brush Cleanser. This quick-drying brush cleanser uses witch hazel and alcohol to eliminate bacteria and instantly dissolve buildup, oil and grime. Each time you wash your makeup brushes with this cleanser, it will leave your tools clean, soft and fluffy. This formula is also enriched with grapefruit oil and seaweed extracts to condition the bristles as it deep cleans. jane iredale Botanical Brush Cleanser is ideal for cleaning both natural and synthetic brushes on a regular basis.

Dont forget your sunscreen for your daytime parties and everyday!!

Anti-aging: Should we lose the term?

At GlowMD Laser MedSpa, we hear the word anti-aging a lot. Anti-aging happens to be one of   top-searched keywords on the internet. The notion of turning back the clock draws patients to dermatologists and clients to med-spas, and the term is part of skin care advertising for thousands of products from over the counter moisturizers to prescription peels and injectables.

So it comes as something of a shock that the publishers of Allure, a leading fashion and beauty magazine, announced that they’re banning the term anti-aging from their editorial copy. Huffington Post quotes Allure‘s Michelle Lee on the thinking behind the change:

“Whether we know it or not, [the term is] subtly reinforcing the message that aging is a condition we need to battle — think antianxiety meds, antivirus software, or antifungal spray,” wrote Editor-in-Chief Michelle Lee , adding, “Repeat after me: Growing older is a wonderful thing because it means that we get a chance, every day, to live a full, happy life.”

Allure is putting its cover where its philosophy is, featuring ageless cover woman Helen Mirren. (Of course, if we all aged as gorgeously as Dame Helen, maybe we wouldn’t be so anti-!) But the magazine isn’t content to police their own editorial team. Lee is issuing a challenge to all of us to rethink the way we approach aging, to think of it as something we do naturally, beautifully, gracefully, not an enemy in the mirror to vanquish.

At GlowMD laser MedSpa it’s our motto that healthy skin is beautiful skin — at any age. Though we’ll continue to use the keyword anti-aging to describe many of our cosmetic treatments and products, the only aging we’re dead-set against is premature, preventable damage to skin that causes early wrinkling, sagging, and spots and can lead to skin cancer. Otherwise, we’re here to help you live gracefully and beautifully every year of your life.

FRACTORA ~ SMOOTH OUT THE WRINKLES

             FRACTORA – RF (Radio Frequency) NON SURGICAL FACE AND NECK LIFT

fractora facefractora logo

At glowMD Laser MedSpa at The Dermatology Center, Dr Terri Morris is now offering Fractora Radio Frequency face and neck treatments. Non surgical skin tightening and rejuvenation has reached the next level! Individuals who are looking for a non-invasive and natural looking approach to skin tone, texture irregularities and lifting can benefit from Fractora™ Fractional. Fractora™ Fractional can be used in areas that demonstrate fine or deep wrinkles, scars or discolored red and brown skin tone. The most common areas of treatment are the face and neck.

Our Neck/Jowl Tightening Treatment, aka the “Non Surgical Face and Neck Lift” will leave your neck and jawline tighter, more chiseled, and youthful. Skip the scalpel, love the RF (Radio Frequency) treatment!

During your consultation, we evaluate your face as a whole to create a customized experience unique to your anatomical needs and personal cosmetic goals. All of our treatments are tailored around acceptable expectations and meaningful improvements without complications. We sometimes combine multiple therapies to obtain optimal results.

Ideal Candidates:

Age 30+ with concerns of lower face jowling, sagging neck skin or increased skin laxity.

How does it work:

The Fractora is the most advanced fractional radio frequency treatment that provides anti-aging improvements on skin tone, texture and firmness for a more radiant look through ablation and skin resurfacing. The Fractora delivers Radio frequency energy to the skin through an array of pins producing localized thermal energy. The gentle heat generated by the Fractora pins in the sub-dermal tissue promotes collagen growth for skin rejuvenation and an improved skin texture. In deeper tissues, the Fractora tightens the face and neck muscles which causes the tightening of the jowls and neck muscles.

fractora process exampleTreatment Details:

Each treatment lasts approximately 1 hour. After 1 treatment, you will see improvements but for permanent results, we recommend 2-3 sessions, spaced 3-4 months apart. There are 2-3 days of downtime after each session.

Benefits:

  • Fractora improves skin elasticity and firmness, especially around the jowls and neck area.
  • Fractora delivers improvements in fine lines, deep lines, texture, pigment irregularities, blood vessels and redness.
  • Fractora offers improvements for aging skin that would normally require two, three or even four different technologies.
  • Ablation of the skin promotes skin resurfacing while untreated skin between the pins promotes faster healing of the treatment tissue.
  • Versatility of parameters allows the user to vary the depth of ablation, coagulation and heating.

The treatment is well tolerated with a topical numbing agent. Social activity can be resumed after a couple of days. We encourage all patients to start our medical grade skin care line prior to and after treatment for better results if you are not using medical grade skincare. The Fractora treatment can be considered an effective modality of treatment for moderate wrinkling and softening acne scars with minimal downtime and advantageous results.

Fractora is performed by Dr Terri Morris, our Board Certified Dermatologist at The Dermatology Center – glowMD Laser MedSpa! Call our office at 540-371-9098 to schedule your Complimentary Consultation!

ViPeel in Fredericksburg, VA

ViPeel for New Skin in 7 Days! Virtually painless, Affordable, Remarkable Results!  Treats all skin types!  GlowMD Laser MedSpa now offering this VI Peel™ to leave your skin smoother, brighter and more youthful.

What is a VI Peel™?

A VI Peel™ is a unique blend of ingredients that produces powerful results that treats sun damage and other signs of aging and melasma to leave the skin smooth and soft. The primary advantages of a VI Peel™ is its ability to do its job without the discomfort some other chemical peels have and corrects the skin at the cellular level rather than the outer layer of skin. VI Peel™ combines TCA, Retin-A, salicylic acid and Vitamin C, making it safe for all skin types. It can also be used on the hands and chest to remove sun spots.

There are three types of VI Peel™ solutions:

  • VI Peel™ Purify

    – This formula treats acne and the side effects that come with it including scarring and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.

  • VI Peel™ Precision
    – This is a stronger formula of the VIPeel™ – 25 percent stronger

  • VI Peel™ Precision Plus
    – This treats melasma and pigmentation with a precision booster and extra pads.  ​

Benefits of a VI Peel™

A VI Peel™ is very effective at removing the signs of aging, including sun spots, age spots and fine lines and wrinkles. It is often chosen for a chemical peel because it offers the following benefits:
  • Safe to use on the hands, neck, and chest
  • No discomfort
  • Results are visible in days
  • No skin preparation
  • Very little downtime

Is a VI Peel™ Right for Me?

The VI Peel™ is right for you if you have visible age or sun spots, melasma or other signs of aging and want to smooth your skin beyond using fillers and injectables. Additionally, a VI Peel™ is ideal if you want a peel that results in less downtime and side effects.

VI Peel™ Recovery

Immediately following the VI Peel™, the skin has a brown or reddish tone to it that lasts for the first couple of days. Most patients look slightly tan so they are able to continue working. The peeling begins at about the three-day post peel mark and is done by the end of day four. Within about a week, the process is complete and the skin looks smooth and revitalized. Normal routines continue as there is little to no problems with the appearance; however, we recommend no vigorous exercise or activities for the first few days. Most patients require only one treatment to achieve smoother skin although it is suggested that maintenance peels be performed about every three to four months.

How Much Does a VI Peel™ Cost in Fredericksburg, VA ?

The cost of VI Peel™ varies depending on where the peel is performed and how many treatments are required. During a consultation, we can discuss the cost with you following an
evaluation of your skin. We offer excellent financing through CareCredit® to make more procedures available to more patients.

What Do I Do Next?

If you are interested in finding out if VI Peel™ is an option to achieve younger, smoother skin, we recommend you schedule a consultation. At this appointment, we will evaluate your skin to determine if VI Peel™ or another peel is the right option for you. We will also spend time answering questions and addressing any of your concerns.
