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

Large Pores?? How To Help Shrink Them!

We all want satiny smooth skin, unfortunately big pores often stand in the way of having that. Here is Glow MD’s Tips on minimizing the appearance of large pores.

female checking pores in mirrormale cleaning face to reduce pores

There are a number of factors that will cause large pores, but of the many, there are three main culprits. As we age we will naturally lose the elasticity in the surrounding skin that supports the pores, causing pores to appear bigger than they actually are. Secondly, men are more likely to have larger pores compared to women from their genetic makeup and increased oil production. And last but not least, our body uses a substance called Sebum, which naturally hydrates our skin to prevent from drying. This substance however is very oily and individuals who produce more than average will find that oily skin causes larger pores no matter what your age or gender.

The good news is you can make your large pores appear smaller and here’s some quick how-to’s:

  1. Cleanse:

One of the easiest and quickest ways to reduce large pores is implementing a daily routine of constantly keeping them clean. Use a mild cleanser twice a day and exfoliate so that your skin doesn’t become overly dry.  You can consider a cleanser that contains a lactic or salicylic acid to declog the pores.

  1. Exfoliate:

Removing dead skin cells from the upper skin layer to brighten skin texture and get rid of heaped up cells surrounding and in the pores.  Removing the dull layer of dead skin cells on top of your living skin layer gives you brighter, smoother, more radiant looking skin with a velvety soft texture.  You may want to think about invest in a dermasweep, medical facials, or peels to clean down into your pores. Oil and clogged pore debris can then be lifted out of the pores.  Empty pores look cleaner and smaller because the black appearance oxidized pore debris make pores look more obvious.

  1. Treat: 

The use of topical treatments such as retinoids, salicylic acid, alpha hydroxy acid or benzoyl peroxides will not only reduce the size of the pores but will also aid in the destruction of bacteria that cause acne and treat sun damage.

If you still feel like your pores look big with the suggestions mentioned above, you may need a little extra help. There are many dermatological advances in skincare which has led to the development of a number of effective treatments for large pores. If you have large pores, you may benefit from the following treatments:

  1. Chemical Peels:

Our team at GlowMD will work with you to transform your complexion into beautiful, healthy-looking skin. Our chemical peels use varying types of prescription-strength acids including salicylic, lactic, retinol, and trichloroacetic acid to remove your outer layers of dead skin – revealing the fresher, healthier, softer skin underneath.

  1. Non Ablative Skin Resurfacing Services such as Microneedling or Fractora Radio Frequency

Non-Ablative Laser Skin Resurfacing works beautifully to create micro-zones of collagen boosting to reveal fresher, smooth skin.  It can minimize the appearance of pores as well as acne scars.  Downtime is minimal with some mild redness and flaking.  Typically a series of even 2 to 3 treatments is enough for long-lasting results.

  1. IPL Photofacial:

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatments are also fantastic for refining the texture and appearance of pores.  Skin feels incredible after even a single treatment.  IPL causes tightening of the pores, gives the skin an overall glow, and addresses any unwanted brown spots.

    7. Wear Sunscreen

Too much sun can make your skin less supple, making your pores look bigger. Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 every day. Also, wear a broad-brimmed hat and avoid being out in the sun
