The effects of our environment and sun exposure are responsible for 90% of all "premature" aged skin, and the sun is responsible for more than 90% of all skin cancer.

"Time waits for no one and it won't wait for me".

Some things improve with the passage of time such as fine wines and vintage automobiles. The condition of our skin however neither improves nor increases in value as time ticks by. The aging skin has a distinct appearance and it can be significantly modified, providing an "aged to perfection" quality all unto its own. Your skin is your anti-aging "survival suit" and it must be protected from the environment and the ravages of time.

Microdermabrasion Treatments

Microdermabrasion is a revolutionary, non-invasive skin rejuvenation procedure that uses air pressure to circulate fine crystals over your skin to gently remove dead skin cells, oils and other debris that clog pores and lead to dull and aged skin. While encouraging a more youthful glow and appearance, this comfortable and safe exfoliation procedure increases circulation and stimulates the production of collagen, leaving your skin smoother, cleaner and brighter. Often referred to as the "lunchtime peel", this effective treatment actually works from the inside out, helping to diminish enlarged pores, fine lines, wrinkles, scars, hyperpigmentation, and superficial sun damage.

Microdermabrasion particle resurfacing treatments are ideal for people who desire beautiful, younger looking skin but are unwilling or unable to undergo existing laser or chemical treatments due to high cost, potential side effects, discomfort and long recovery times.

Over the past 10 years, particle skin exfoliation has been adopted as the resurfacing of choice by over 1,000 European treatment centers. The U.S. skin care market has rapidly adopted the procedure since its introduction in 1997.

Microdermabrasion treatments take about 15 to 30 minutes depending upon the areas being treated, and you may return to your daily activities immediately after. Most clients see dramatic results after one treatment. However, for optimal results, an evaluation of your skin condition and a recommended treatment program of 4 to 12 visits may be necessary.

Microdermabrasion reduces:

  • Sun damaged skin
  • Fine lines / wrinkles
  • Excess oil
  • Clogged pores
  • Dry flaky skin
  • Hyperpigmentation

Glycolic Acid

For generations people have been looking for ways to have smoother, healthier skin. In the days of Cleopatra, women would bathe in sour milk; ladies of the French Court used fermented wine on their faces to keep their skin smooth and free of blemishes. We have now learned that there was a method and science to their madness. Glycolic Acid, found in sugar cane, is one of a number of Alpha-Hydroxy Acids that occur naturally in nature as well as our own body.

Glycolic Acid is considered by many researchers to be the most adaptable for cosmetic purposes due to its small molecular size. Systematic application of glycolic acid delivers remarkable benefits for some of the most common skin conditions. The addition of glycolic acid into a client's regular skin care regimen along with higher concentrations applied professionally provides the client a perfect solution for problematic skin. Glycolic acid's adaptability to specific skin requirements allows the skin care professional the ability to treat a variety of skin conditions such as oily acne prone skin, enlarged pore size, dry and maturing skin and pigmentation conditions.

Glycolic acid is beneficial in the improvement of age spots, lines and wrinkles, and the retexturing of aged skin. The epidermis (outer layer) becomes compact and organized allowing the dryness associated with maturing skin to be controlled while providing additional smoothness. The use of a total sun block is vital in the prevention of premature aged skin. The benefits of glycolic acid are cumulative resulting in clearer, smoother, healthier looking skin. A series of (6) treatments are suggested for optimal results.
