MICRONEEDLING – POPULARITY IS STEADILY CLIMBING!

What is Collagen P.I.N. Microneedling?

The Collagen P.I.N. (Percutaneous Induction Therapeutic) microneedling device is a pen-like device that houses very fine, sterile needles. When passed over the skin, the Collagen P.I.N. creates a series of small punctures, or “micro injuries,” which effectively triggers your body’s natural healing response to injury.

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.

This process promotes an increased production of collagen and elastin in the treated area, which gradually increases the firmness of your skin, reduces blemishes, improves signs of aging and sun damage, and minimizes the appearance of scars—all without having to remove layers of skin with lasers or chemicals.

Aside from providing an overall improvement in the health and radiance of your skin, microneedling is a wonderful choice for improving the following skin concerns:

  • Signs of aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles
  • Sun damage, including discoloration
  • Scarring from acne, chickenpox, or surgery
  • Large pore size

Microneedling is a safe option for virtually every skin type and color, unlike other more invasive skin treatments. It can be performed almost anywhere on the body, including the face, neck, decolletage, hand, arms, and back.

Why The Collagen P.I.N.

The benefits of microneedling Collagen P.I.N. has made advancements in both the design of the device and application techniques. With three times more needles than other devices on the market and the ability to be customized to each patient, Collagen P.I.N. boasts superior results and a quick treatment.

Complimentary Consultation

A personalized skin evaluation and consultation will be performed before microneedling is scheduled. We want to make sure that you are an appropriate candidate for the procedure.

The Day of Microneedling Treatment

One the day of your session, we will take photos to follow your progress. We will prep the skin and, depending on your needs, apply a topical serum to enhance the benefits of treatment. Often, we will choose a product containing hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring protein that helps keep your skin soft, supple, and healthy.

The Collagen P.I.N. device will glide smoothly over your skin’s surface, creating thousands of very tiny punctures to stimulate your skin and deliver the applied serum. Your treatment will be fully customized to your skin type and concerns, from the ideal needle depth to number of passes required to provide you with optimal results. Patients report that treatment is quite tolerable, particularly when compared to older “rolling” microneedling devices.

After your Treatment with Collagen P.I.N. Microneedling

After your treatment, we will apply a special moisturizer to hydrate your skin and promote proper healing. For the first day or so, you may feel and look like you have a mild sunburn, but any discomfort and redness should dissipate very soon. By the following day, you can wear makeup on the treated areas, and most of our patients feel comfortable returning to work.

Because the skin’s healing and repair process will begin as soon as treatment is complete, you will begin seeing results quickly, and they will continue to gradually improve for up to a year. You’ll be enjoying firmer, younger, and healthier skin in no time.

Holiday Skincare Tips – Let It Glow!

Skincare Tips for the Holidays

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!!

NEW!! Fire & Ice Red Carpet Facial by IS Clinical

 

glowMD Laser MedSpa now offers the new and invigorating Fire and Ice Facial by iS Clinical! Fire and Ice Facial is famous for its instant brightening, smoothing and tightening of the skin.  It’s also known as “The Red Carpet Facial” in Hollywood, for obvious reasons!

Serums and creams with aromas of warm cinnamon and cool peppermint compliment precise combinations of two professional treatment masks.

See the Fire & Ice Red Carpet Facial on The Doctors!

The facial begins with the “fire” which is an intensive resurfacing masque. The masque is clinically formulated with 18% unbuffered glycolic acid, lactic acid, citric acid, malic acid, retinol, vitamin B3 and potent antioxidants, including green tea extracts. It has a cinnamon scent and tingles a little on your face as it begins to work.

After the “fire” mask has completed its job, the “ice” is applied.  This is a rejuvenating mask designed to cool and soothe the skin. This intensively hydrating masque contains hyaluronic acid, aloe vera gel, Japanese green tea extracts, licorice extracts, grape seed extracts and rosemary extracts. The pampering part of the facial cools the initial “peel” and leaves the skin glowing.

The results of the Fire and Ice Facial?  The skin will feel tight and firm, and usually have a glow. The skin may have a mild redness following the treatment, but it is temporary. There should be no scaling or downtime. The Fire and Ice Facial may be repeated at four-week intervals for a series of 6 facials until the desired clinical effect is achieved.  With each additional treatment, you should see incremental gains in the overall appearance of the skin.
