10 Days Post CO2 Fractional Laser Resurfacing

Day 10 photos of post CO2 Fractional Laser Resurfacing.
My skin is just about back to normal with just a slight amount of redness remaining. The itching is still pushing my every little button, however, this is a good thing and it means the collagen cells are stimulated. On day 10 you can resume wearing makeup. You will still be using a lot of moisturizers on your skin because it feels really dry. You also need to be using your Sanitas Vitamin C Serum or Topical C and Pevonia Stem Cell Treatments on a daily basis. I recommend SPF 50 IS Clinical SPF. Your skin will continue to improve over the next 6 months. The collagen and elastin will increase, your skin will be plumper and tighter. Oh Yes!! This makes the last 10 days worth it. Please contact Skindeepgj.com if you have any questions regarding laser or skin care treatments. #Co2Laser, #Pevonia, #Sanitas, #laser Resurfacing, #laser treatmentspost co2 10

How do I take care of my dry winter skin

Many factors contribute to dry skin in the Winter.

1) Be sure to use tepid water. It is so easy to turn the heat up, but it causes more drying of the skin than any single thing.

2) Exposure to cold and wind. Be sure to wear a good moisturizer and sunscreen. Shield your skin as much as possible with clothing.

3) Eat a diet rich in EFA like salmon or fish oils.

4) Drink more water. It is hard to drink enough water in the winter so try tepid water.

5) Don’t use irritating products on the skin and be sure your facial scrub is a fine jojoba bead in a moisturizing complex.

Apply moisturizer at least twice per day, avoid heavily foaming cleansers and soap and cut down on fragranced products. Fragrance is a well know skin irritant. Hyaluronic Acid is one of my most favorite ingredients to add moisture to very dry skin.

Stem Cells and Skin Care

There is a huge buzz in the skin care industry about stem cells in skin care and it is used for anti-aging. Let us learn what and why about these ingredients before you spend you hard earned $.

Google the words “human stem cells skin care” and you will see more than 3 million search results. But when it comes to topical skincare products, the discussion of stem cells is really about growth factors, cytokines and chemokines. Some are grown in the laboratory and others are found in stem-cell-conditioned media.

Cytokines and chemokines are signaling proteins, released by cells, that serve as messengers and affect the behavior of other cells. Cytokines, in particular, often regulate inflammatory responses.

LED Red Light for Healing Post CO2 Laser Resurfacing

Day 4 Red LED Light Treatment for healing
Visible red light, at wavelengths from 630 to 700 nm penetrates tissue to a depth of about 10 mm. Light at this wavelength is very beneficial in treating problems close to the surface such as wounds, cuts, scars, trigger and acupuncture points, and is particularly effective in treating infections. Infrared light (800 to 1000nm) penetrates to a depth of about 40mm and deeper which makes it more effective for treating organs and provide relief for ailments of bones, joints, deep muscle tissue.

The diverse tissue and cell types in the body all have their own unique light absorption characteristics; that is, they will only absorb light at specific wavelengths and not at others. For example, skin layers, because of their high blood and water content, absorb red light very readily, while calcium and phosphorus absorb light of a different wavelength. Although both red and infrared wavelengths penetrate to different depths and affect tissues differently, the therapeutic effects are similar.

Superluminous LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes) are safe concentrated light sources used to produce the specific wavelengths of light that provide therapeutic benefits of light therapy without adverse side effects. JO LED
