Peels and Exfoliation

Why peel? Chemical peels have been used for a very long time for exfoliation of the skin, for removing dead cells, and for helping in the skin’s natural processes. Peels can help treat different conditions from acne, scars, hyperpigmentation, and more. They have been very popular because of their effectiveness and lower cost relative to other procedures. While there are different types of peels with different components ranging from mild to deep, in my opinion several milder peels are better than one deep one. To me these peels, preserve your epidermis, yet result in excellent benefits to your skin. Mild peels will exfoliate superficially, while medium peels will...

Selecting Lasers (Part 2)

  Given my previous write-up on lasers for hair removal, I wanted to continue with the discussion on treatment alternatives. This time, I wanted to expand to skin care. Because when it comes to skin rejuvenation there are many competing alternatives from peels, to radiofrequency, microneedling, lasers and more; it’s too much information to summarize in this blog today. My intention is to introduce the topic in order to expand on each modality in particular in a later section. Ultimately, the goal is to have an idea of each one and its distinct use. Regarding lasers, we first need to understand how these work: basically they operate on the...

Selecting Lasers (Part 1)

Lasers have been around for a while and I believe they will continue to be an important tool in the arsenal for skin care treatments. When I first started in this field, I was intimidated by them, but these feelings passed as I got experience and learned about their wonderful applications. So today, I would like to discuss lasers for hair removal; do stay tuned, since I will discuss other uses in the next blogs. When choosing a hair removal laser, I recommend you start by analyzing your skin type. Some machines are safer than others due to the wavelength of the emitted light. For example, the 1064...

LET’S TALK EXCESS HAIR…

Aside from paying your taxes and the fact that we are on this earth temporarily, another solid truth is that many of us don’t like excess hair. In fact, laser hair removal has been proven to be one of the most psychologically rewarding cosmetic procedures due to its impact on how we feel about ourselves. When we were babies, we had terribly cute Vellus Hair, which is simply the baby fine colorless hair that covers our body. But then comes puberty and hormonal changes in our body and as a result, some of this vellus hair is stimulated by androgens (hormones) to become darker, curlier, and coarser....

Vitamin A Based Cosmeceuticals- Why?

Every day when I wake up, I organize my to do list and write down my priorities and activities for the day and beyond. I make sure I have gas in my car, I pay my electricity bills, I buy food, and so on. However, it was not until a few years ago that I seriously started taking care of my skin. In other words, I began putting quality products on my skin, eating the right ingredients, exercising, and so on to produce beautiful healthy skin throughout my life. Of all the ingredients that my skin factory needs, Vitamin A is the magical secret needed to improve it...

Nutraceuticals: Are They For Real?

I happen to believe in supplements. While there has been controversial evidence as to their effectiveness, I have felt better when I take supplements, especially when I’m too busy to focus on eating healthy, or when I crave that piece of cake. Given the importance of nutrition in our body, and in our case the skin, I found the topic interesting. After all, “there are several legs in a stool” and many wellness and skincare weapons in our arsenal. After doing some research, I particularly enjoyed reading Dr. Steve Chaneys’ conclusions from a couple of his studies. The first concerns personalized nutrition and the second, is the role...

Beauty Tricks

On the other hand, we denounce with righteous indignation and dislike men who are so beguiled and demoralized by the charms of pleasure of the moment, so blinded by desire, that they cannot foresee the pain and trouble that are bound to ensue; and equal blame belongs to those who fail in their duty through weakness of will, which is the same as saying through shrinking from toil and pain. These cases are perfectly simple and easy to distinguish. In a free hour, when our power of choice is untrammelled and when nothing prevents our being able to do what we like best, every pleasure is to...
