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...

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...

Adopted in the ‘90s as a cosmetic procedure, microcurrent is an inexpensive, non-surgical, and natural procedure that works in harmony with the body to reduce and eliminate fine lines and wrinkles. There are many benefits including the reduction of puffiness, cellulite elimination, improving the muscle tone in face and neck, enhancing the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin, and more. What is Microcurrent Therapy? Microcurrent therapy is a safe, natural, and non-invasive procedure that naturally tones and...

What Does It Take To Make A Comprehensive Skin Evaluation?

“I can’t stand these spots!” said my client, Sue, who was very upset about the way her skin looked. And she was right…she was full of unwanted facial hairs, acne, pigmentation irregularities, and concomitant scars. She had never suffered from severe acne as a teenager and her looks were causing her anxiety Upon meeting with her, we immediately started completing forms and a questionnaire. We started by looking at her nutritional habits. Particularly, we asked her how many takeout meals a week she had, at what time was her main meal, how late was her last meal, what were the main groups included in her diet, was she...

A Skin Consultation: Why or Why not?

Many of us when we go to a spa or center for preventive and maintenance skin treatments, do not go through a thorough skin evaluation. Those types of consultations are regularly done in the medical world when we go for an examination to treat or prevent disease, but not so much in the aesthetics world. However, comprehensive consultations can help us obtain information on a client’s history, lifestyle, preferences, and more. With this information in hand along with before & after pictures, roadmaps composed of both treatments at the office, and cosmeceuticals at home, can be designed to serve as a guide and to decide on a...

Beautiful Skin Takes Time

[cmsms_row data_width="boxed" data_padding_left="3" data_padding_right="3" data_color="default" data_bg_color="#ffffff" data_bg_position="top center" data_bg_repeat="no-repeat" data_bg_attachment="scroll" data_bg_size="cover" data_bg_parallax_ratio="0.5" data_color_overlay="#000000" data_overlay_opacity="50" data_padding_top="0" data_padding_bottom="50"][cmsms_column data_width="1/1"][cmsms_text animation_delay="0"] Many people come to our offices wanting to improve a visible skin condition immediately. While this approach works, I would like to introduce a slower but more effective method, whereby we first work with what’s causing it and then we improve the symptom. For example, some clients come to us with a dark spot on their face (hyperpigmentation). In the past, we would usually work that condition with a specific method, be it the e-matrix or a peel. However, we now want to look at it differently by determining the...

How to treat your Dry Skin Naturally II

[cmsms_row data_width="boxed" data_padding_left="3" data_padding_right="3" data_color="default" data_bg_color="#ffffff" data_bg_position="top center" data_bg_repeat="no-repeat" data_bg_attachment="scroll" data_bg_size="cover" data_bg_parallax_ratio="0.5" data_color_overlay="#000000" data_overlay_opacity="50" data_padding_top="0" data_padding_bottom="50"][cmsms_column data_width="1/1"][cmsms_text animation_delay="0"] Incorporating the very best of nature in your daily routine can be simple yet the results can be generous to your skin. When cleansing and moisturizing your skin, it is important that you keep in mind that oil dissolves oil. Your skin naturally lubricates itself with oil. Your skin naturally produces oil because it needs it. In our previous blog we talked about natural Oils, in specific Olive Oil that is fantastic to keep skin moisturized and facial skin free of wrinkles. We introduced it as a cleanse and moisturizer, as a...

Today, we want to place some emphasis in Olive Oil, since is often a very good idea to keep it simple and natural, especially for those with allergies or a very sensitive skin complexion. Unlike cream and lotion in the market that contains preservatives and alcohol, pure oils have a natural base and I recommend them as wonderful natural skin dry remedies. Natural Oils works as moisturizers and mixed with other ingredientes work as a...

Laser Treatment for Different Skin Types

Laser treatments have become one of the top preferred techniques in aesthetic medicine. Now, more than ever, patients are taking advantage of the incredible results that laser treatments provide but for some – misleading reputations about the technology have hindered their optimism. When the laser trend had its first debut, laser technicians were not properly trained to administer the procedures on patients with darker skin tones, leaving them with unappealing damaged skin. By darker skin tones, we mean those with an olive, brown, dark brown or black skin tone. Since then, not only are estheticians more qualified but advances in the laser technology have made it less likely...
