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. There is no
"fountain of youth", at least not yet, but there are many
ways to improve your health and the health of your skin.

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.

Photo-Rejuvenation is an affordable, non-abrasive and non-invasive
system of reducing the visible signs of aging associated with the
skin, and is the result of over 40 years of independent research into
the therapeutic effects and benefits of light therapy on the human
body. This state-of-the-art treatment was developed as a direct
result of a renowned concept that our cells are photo-receptive.
Once used in space by our finest astronauts to grow food, these
specific lights have been proven by some of our most elite scientists
to be efficient cell stimulators. The benefits for the skin are
cumulative and numerous and not to be missed. For optimal results,
(6) thirty-minute treatments are recommended.
Photo-Rejuvenation provides the following benefits:
Photo-Rejuvenation diminishes the appearance of:
- Age spots
- Broken capillaries and skin redness, including rosacea
- Fine lines and wrinkles due to sun-damage
- Enlarged pore size
- Coarse skin

A simple solution for difficult skin problems
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.
