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.

Brighten and Tone Your Skin with a Facial Mask

What things do you look for in a mask to brighten and tone your skin? Boost vibrancy by sloughing off dry skin first using a facial scrub. When you exfoliate first, you open the skin up and release the dry dead surface cells,  this will allow the skin to receive the benefits of your facial mask. Look for alpha hydroxy acids (something that contains glycolic acid) or enzymes (something like fruit or pumpkin) and Vitamin C. These ingredients are excellent choices combined with peptides; growth factors; or hyaluronic acid. To brighten your skin use natural ingredients like Kojic acid; white willow bark; bilberry extract; and imperata cylindrica root extract. To learn more contact Jo Ann at www.skindeepgj.com.

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.

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.
