Skin care tips!
Here is just a friendly fact check on your skin care regimen ladies and gentleman:
In order to help reverse some of the existing UV damage, plus help improve skin texture, doctors recommend products with antioxidants, specifically vitamin A and vitamin C and vitamin E.
Various formulations of vitamin A improve cell turnover and are available in many of our skin care products. Obagi has a variety of products ranging from prescription-strength hydroquinone, and tretinoin creams, to 30% L-Ascorbic acid microdermabrasion polish+mask. Vitamin C has become a popular skincare ingredient in the last several years because studies suggest that it can also reverse sun damage. You can find it in many of our Obagi skin care products, which are prescription strength and not sold over the counters. Other key ingredients to look for in quality skin care products include glycolic acids, phytic acid, lactic acid,arbutin, kinetin hyaluronic acid, and many others.
So do your research folks! Look at all active ingredients in your creams and serums, and know what you are getting so you aren't just paying for a fancy brand name. Look at the strength and percentage of active ingredients in your skin care regimens, and then make an educated decision on what best suites your skin care needs ❤
I will end with this- general rule of thumb, if a skin care line is not prescription strength, and is available to everyone over the counter and in department stores, dont waste your money 😉
Skinade has arrived!
Skinade – The new fast and easy way to improve your skin!
Read this step by step explanation of how to improve the appearance of your skin.
How does Skinade work?
If you are smart, you know the age-old saying “you are what you eat” is insanely true. When the body consumes a drink or food, nutrients are distributed to the cells throughout the body. Once the body acquires all the essential nutrients, it begins to release leftovers to other cells such as those found on the skin. If the food or drink consumed contains toxic ingredients, the cells will feed off these toxins which can cause them to malfunction.
The Skinade drink contains over 7000mg of collagen which is extracted from freshwater fish. The collagen is hydrolyzed, meaning it is converted into a peptide. Peptides have a smaller molecular weight which allows the formula to navigate through the body more easily. As the body obtains collagen, it improves the production of fibroblasts which help it naturally produce collagen. About 30% of the body is made of collagen, so it is important to ensure it is healthy and strong.
Beauty brand Skinade has created a drink that can improve the appearance of your skin. Formulated with beneficial ingredients, Skinade will help deliver nutrients and hydration to the skin from the inside. Its star ingredient is collagen, which has been proven to have beneficial effects on the skin.
When Skinade is effectively used, it claims to diminish fine lines and wrinkles, improve texture, and improve skin tone. Its formula is patent pending.
Skinade drink claims to:
• Strengthen and rebuild collagen
• Increase levels of hydration
• Reduce fine line and wrinkles
• Promote hair and nail growth
• Promote an overall youthful appearance
What are the ingredients of Skinade drink?
• Vitamin C- helps the body form collagen, boosts the immune system, provides antioxidant protection, and promotes radiance.
• MSM- helps improve elasticity and collagen production.
• B vitamins- helps promote healthy skin.
• Omegas 3 and 6- helps to balance skin type.
• L-lysine- helps rebuild collagen.
Does Skinade have side effects?
• Those with food allergies should refer to Skinade’s full ingredient list to prevent allergic reaction.
• If you are pregnant or on medication, consult with your physician before purchasing.
• Those who are sensitive to Vitamin B may experience diarrhea or more frequent bowel movements
What are people saying about Skinade?
Louise Robinson, Reviewed December 1st, 2014
“I read reviews online all the time, and – as someone who works in PR – I always wonder if they’re planted comments. I can guarantee this is not!
I started drinking Skinade a few months ago and I cannot overemphasize how happy I am with the results. My skin was never terrible, but I did suffer from ‘hormonal’ flare ups – large spots on my lower face/ chin. Not anymore.
I am absolutely delighted with the results I have seen. My skin is glowing – happy skin! And I am recommending it to anyone who will listen! Delighted.”
Daria, Reviewed on August 24th, 2019
“My deeper wrinkles have begun to iron themselves out (have only be using for just about a month) and my skin has also begun to develop a ‘glow’. It’s certainly not as dry as it used to be, I have a medical condition which means I have difficulty processing Vitamin B complex and Skinade seems to be helping with that enormously. Looking forward to seeing what my skin looks like in a few more months.”

Pellet Therapy, our topic of the month!
WHAT IS IT?
Call us for any further questions or concerns.
More and more people are discovering bio-identical hormones. They have realized that just like our brains, hearts, arms and legs, hormones are part of the human body for a reason. It is not usually until hormone levels begin to sag and lose balance that we start to experience health problems. We live in a world of deteriorating food quality, increasing toxic chemical load, and high stress which is causing hormonal decline at an earlier age than ever. We are outliving our hormones. The choice now is that whether we use bio-identicals, but what form of bio-identicals to use.
Pellet therapy is rapidly gaining acceptance as the form of hormone replacement that most closely replicates the natural action of the body. Pellet therapy uses bio-identical hormones to create true hormone replacement, not the hormone substitution offered by synthetic patented hormone drug replacement. These hormones: estrogen and testosterone, are identical in molecular structure to the hormones produced by the human body. Pallets have been used with great success since the 1930’s in countries not in the grip of drug companies. There is more specific data to support the use of pellets than any other method of hormone delivery.
1.) Pallets offer estrogen and/or testosterone identical to those your body used to make in abundance in your youth.
2.) Pallet therapy is the superior method of hormone delivery because pellets work automatically with your body. The hormones are secreted in small amounts throughout the day. When the body requires more hormones due to mental or physical stress, the pellets are always available 24 hours a day in the correct amount for the body to use. No other delivery method can offer this consistency of hormones released into the bloodstream.
3.) Pellet Therapy is safer and more effective than other methods because the lowest dose can be administered with better results. For other methods to be effective, they often require higher doses of medicine to be administered two times a day.
4.) Pellets are hassle free and convenient form of hormone replacement. Once hormone pellets are inserted, you do not have to be concerned with remembering to take your pills or rubbing on your cream twice a day.

Laser Hair Removal
Start getting your body ready for summer this month
with our special on Laser Hair Removal.
$50 off each session when you start in May
During laser hair removal, a laser emits a light that is absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in the hair. The light energy is converted to heat, which damages the tube-shaped sacs within the skin (hair follicles) that produce hairs. This damage inhibits or delays future hair growth.
Although laser hair removal effectively delays hair growth for long periods, it usually doesn't result in permanent hair removal. Multiple laser hair removal treatments are needed for initial hair removal, and maintenance treatments might be needed as well. Laser hair removal is most effective for people who have light skin and dark hair.
Why it's done
Laser hair removal is used to reduce unwanted hair. Common treatment locations include legs, armpits, upper lip, chin and the bikini line. However, it's possible to treat unwanted hair in nearly any area, except the eyelid or surrounding area.
Before laser hair removal, schedule a consultation with us to determine if this is an appropriate treatment option for you.
Preparing for treatments:
Staying out of the sun, mjeaning no sunbathing or extending periods in the sun and use sunscreen daily.
Lightening your skin. Avoid any sunless skin creams that darken your skin.
Avoiding other hair removal methods. Plucking, waxing and electrolysis can disturb the hair follicle and should be avoided at least four weeks before treatment.
Avoiding blood-thinning medications. Ask us about what medications, such as penicillins, aspirin or anti-inflammatory drugs, to avoid before the procedure.
Shaving treatment area. Trimming and shaving is recommended the day before laser treatment. It removes hair above the skin that can result in surface skin damage from burnt hairs, but it leaves the hair shaft intact below the surface.
What you can expect
Laser hair removal usually requires a series of two to six treatments. The interval between treatments will vary depending on the location. On areas where hair grows quickly, such as the upper lip, the treatment might be repeated in four to eight weeks. On areas of slow hair growth, such as the back, the treatment might be every 12 to 16 weeks.
For each treatment you'll wear special goggles to protect your eyes from the laser beam.
