Skin Protection and Why We Need SPF

UV Radiation is the primary cause of free radicals in the skin. You have two types that you should be concerned about UVA/UVB.

The UVB rays stand for BURN, you will feel these rays. Unfortunately, one of the most damaging rays UVA you don’t feel. UVA can penetrate through clouds or glass. Riding in your car or sitting by a sunny window will give you damage that you won’t feel. Thus is why most people have more sun damage on the left side of their face, it is exposed next to the window while driving. UVA rays are present year round. You will not see the damage from these rays for several years. They also penetrate the skin 30-40 times deeper than UVB rays.

How do we protect our skin from this type of damage? Choose IS Clinical SPF 50, it is a broad spectrum SPF that protects against UVA/UVB rays. This formula is oil free and vitamin E enriched making it a perfect solution for all skin types especially oily/acne skin.

Be sure to apply your SPF 30 minutes before you go out and saturate your outer part of your skin the epidermis.

What in the World are AHAS, BHAS and Retinols?

Today we are learning more about alpha hydroxy acids and how they benefit our skin. KOJIC ACID is produced by aspergillus oryzae. This is a filamentous fungus (a mold) used to ferment soybeans. It is well known for it skin-brightening abilities and you will find this in many products that use naturally based ingredients for lightening the skin. It has exfoliating properties but is used with caution on very sensitive skin types. Learn which AHA, BHAS and Retinols will work best for your skin by contacting.

What in the world are AHAS BHAS and RETINOLS

This week we are learning about acids that are used on your skin and why in the world would you use them. Yesterday, we learned that glycolic acid is an exfoliant and is used to deliver other ingredients into your skin.

Today, let us look at LACTIC ACID which is derived from milk, fruit, vegetables and some plants. It is a milder form of alpha hydroxy acids and one that is a moisturizing. It is much less irritating to sensitive skin than glycolic because it has a larger molecular structure and penetrates the skin much slower than glycolic. Lactic acid is a natural component of your cells and can stimulate collagen production. Lactic Acid will smooth out the appearance of large pores and lightly improve acne scars. Lactic Acid will also aid your skins barrier function and improve the water barrier properties by increasing ceramides and glycosamino-glycans (natural moisturizers).

You will find LACTIC ACID in many skin care products ranging from light peels, moisturizers, serums and cleansers.

Have you ever heard the word Glycolic Acid?  Glycolic acid comes from plants like sugarcane, pineapple and sugar beets. It is a powerful and quickly penetrating molecule. It has the smallest molecular structure of the AHA’S. (alpha hydroxy acids)

This is an excellent ingredient to exfoliate the skin, decrease oil production and clear acne. It also works as a delivery system to aid other ingredients penetration into the skin.

There are many acids that we use to strengthen and clear the skin. Learn how glycolic acid can benefit your skin by scheduling a consultation at Skindeepgj.com.

Effective Anti-Aging Treatments with Chemical Peels- What do You Need To Know?

Chemical peels are an art form and should be performed only by a certified skin care professional trained in the use of peels. Not everyone has this certification and it is important to ask for credentials.  Chemical peels are a very effective way to slow down the aging process and correct uneven pigment.

Post-care and skin recovery are important to understand. Your skin care professional should provide you a list and treatment protocol for taking care of your skin pre/post procedure. Proper healing is essential.

Know what type of peel is being performed on you and why. Ask for before and after pictures and understand what peeling means. Do not have this procedure performed any closer to a special event than 1 month out.

SublativeRF Procedure and Treatment Video

I recently had sublative radio frequency treatment done on my face and décolletage performed by Vicky Filz of Shape Medical Center where I perform laser treatments a couple times a month. We thought it would be beneficial to video the procedure itself and my recovery.  

Sublative Radio Frequency is one of the hottest most revolutionary and affordable skin rejuvenation treatments in today’s cosmetic market. Post treatment, new collagen and healthy skin cells are produced. Mild to moderate wrinkles and superficial skin discolorations are reduced. The texture of your skin becomes smoother and more elastic.

SublativeRF  Videos

Introduction:

This treatment reduces wrinkles, skin imperfections, texture irregularities, and more. Proven in clinical trials, SublativeRF provides deep dermal heating through radio frequency energy.

During Treatment:

Clinical trials revealed that 83% of patients experience significant improvement in skin brightness and 90% had significant improvements in skin smoothness and wrinkle reduction.


Post Treatment:
Imagine a treatment that can treat fine lines and wrinkles, and improve textural irregularities all in one sitting. Now, imagine you can achieve all this in a treatment that requires little-to-no downtime and is clinically proven for all skin types. This video is immediately post treatment.

Post Treatment – Days 1-3: (click the images to enlarge)

Sublative RF Day 1 Post Treatment

Sublative RF Day 1 : It is still very warm and you can see the inflammatory response. This is exactly how you want to look. The inflammation creates a collagen response in the skin that builds a strong foundation in the dermis for anti-aging. You definitely don’t want to be out in public.

Sublative RF-Day 2 Monday- day # 3 post #sublativeRF, and I am back to work. You can see the difference from Friday. It is a quick healing and short down time. I am peeling now and you can still see the micro-pixelations which look like I pressed myself into a screen door. There is no pain. You may not wear makeup yet. You may resume all activities but must be especially careful outdoors. SPF is mandatory at all times. My skin is very dry and the little micro-pixelations are peeling off. You need to stay very moisturized.

Sublative RF-Day 2
See the difference a day can make. I do not feel any warmth in my skin now, it is just slightly uncomfortable. To care for my skin I am using #leafpeople aloe & lavender cleanser, clinical soothing mist, & rejuvenating balm. These products are formulated to help heal the skin post resurfacing procedures. They feel great. You probably don’t want to be in public yet.

Sublative RF Day 3: Monday- day # 3 post #sublativeRF, and I am back to work. You can see the difference from Friday. It is a quick healing and short down time. I am peeling now and you can still see the micro-pixelations which look like I pressed myself into a screen door. There is no pain. You may not wear makeup yet. You may resume all activities but must be especially careful outdoors. SPF is mandatory at all times. My skin is very dry and the little micro-pixelations are peeling off. You need to stay very moisturized.
