What is Age Rewind Microcurrent Facial?

DESUAR Spa | Day Spa Services in Downtown Los Angeles

Growing Old is Inevitable, but growing older with grace is a choice.

Wrinkles are a natural part of the aging process. As we age, our skin tends to loose its elasticity and sag. While ageing is inevitable, feeling good and looking good is also certain! Take your skin and facial muscles on a journey toward perfection and beauty with Microcurrent, your 5-minute facial lift.

Microcurrent technology is one of the hottest things in the anti-aging industry today. Widely known as the nonsurgical face-lift, a microcurrent facial diminishes signs of aging, improves your face contour, and brightens your complexion. As its name suggests, it makes use of low-voltage electrical current to stimulate collagen and elastin production in your skin. It also repairs damaged tissues and re-educates the facial muscles to become firmer and tighter. It is a cosmetic treatment where a person uses a special handheld device to deliver tiny currents of electricity to the face. These microcurrents stimulate the skin and muscles with the aim of improving a person’s appearance.

Microcurrent therapy, a form of electrotherapy, was then introduced to the United States in the late 1970s by Chinese physician Dr. Thomas Wing. He used microcurrent in an attempt to treat Bell’s palsy, a condition that paralyzes the facial muscles on one side of the face. While no evidence proved that microcurrent therapy was effective in treating this facial condition, Dr. Wing did discover other skin benefits in his patients such as a smoother skin tone and a younger-looking visage.

This is why microcurrent facials have been widely recommended by aestheticians and facialists to reduce and delay visible signs of aging. Given that the low-voltage current mimics your body’s natural electrical current, it’s a safe yet effective anti-aging treatment.

Microcurrent devices have two electrodes on one end, which deliver the current of electricity. This does not involve any surgery. A person remains awake throughout the treatment and can continue their usual activities immediately.

Benefits of Microcurrent Facial:

  • Limited scientific research suggests that microcurrent treatments may help to lift and tighten the muscles in the area and stimulate collagen and elastin, helping your skin look smoother, brighter and more rejuvenated.
  • Electrical stimulation can improve blood flow to the skin. This may improve the health of skin cells, make the skin look healthier, or increase plumpness.
  • It Re-Trains the Facial Muscles for Improved Facial Contour. By increasing ATP levels within your body, a microcurrent facial helps to re-energize your facial muscles to improve muscle tone. Think of it as a form of “face gym” to get firmer facial muscles. As such, you get to enjoy improved facial contouring such as reduced skin sagging and a more defined jawline after the treatment.
  • It Boosts Blood Circulation to the Face While Reducing Facial Puffiness. Besides enhancing collagen production and muscle tone, microcurrent facials also increase blood circulation to the face. At the cellular level, this improves nutrient and oxygen supply that results in a more radiant and healthier complexion. 
  • It Gives Immediate Results With a Cumulative Effect
    But why are microcurrent facials touted as the “5-Minute Face-Lift”? The answer lies in the immediate results experienced right after the procedure is done. Expect more defined cheekbones and jawlines, reduced forehead lines and eye wrinkles, and a glowing complexion, all without any downtime.
    One thing to note though is that these benefits have a cumulative effect. In other words, facial improvements are more pronounced and longer-lasting with regular treatments. To maintain the anti-aging benefits, schedule a follow-up session every few weeks as recommended by your aesthetician.
  • It Is Relatively Painless
    Unlike other forms of anti-aging treatments such as Botox or fillers, microcurrent facials are non-invasive and non-surgical. As such, you don’t have to worry about needles or knives touching your skin.

Are microcurrent facials safe?

Research from 2021 states that microcurrent treatments are “relatively safe” and have few side effects.

Microcurrents are not strong enough to cause injury, so when a person uses these devices correctly, they should not hurt or cause skin damage. However, some people should not have microcurrent facials. This includes people with:

  • Pregnancy
  • Active acne or other inflammatory skin conditions
  • Heart issues, e.g. have a pacemaker in your body
  • Had Botox or fillers two weeks before a microcurrent facial
  • Have metal implants in your face

Another potential risk comes from unregulated or untested microcurrent devices. When trying a microcurrent facial at home, a person should always use a device approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Alternatively, people should seek treatment from a licensed professional.

How Is  Microcurrent Facial Done?

There are two ways to get a microcurrent facial done — professional or at-home treatments.

Professional Treatment

For professional treatments, your aesthetician will first apply a thin layer of conductive gel on your face. He or she will then use two hand-held prongs that are attached to a microcurrent machine to deliver low-level electrical current to your skin.

DESUAR Spa, recommends 10 treatments for long lasting results and cumulative benefits for $300 ( 80 mins session).

At-Home Treatment

The other option is to use at-home microcurrent devices to enjoy this facial treatment in the comfort of your own home. Make sure these at-home gadgets come with conductive gel too. These devices are also cheaper when compared to a professional microcurrent facial — they range from $200-$500 for an at-home treatment whenever you want.

However, the downside is that at-home microcurrent devices are less powerful than the professional-grade microcurrent machines used in spas. As such, the benefits may not be as potent or as long-lasting when you opt for at-home treatment.

What to Do After Your Treatment to Get the Best Results

To get the best results from this facial treatment, make sure to wear sunscreen to protect your skin against harmful UV rays if you aren’t already doing so. As a general rule, applying SPF 30 and above should be an integral step in your daily skincare routine but more so after a microcurrent facial.

At the same time, avoid activities that will cause collagen breakdown and undo the beneficial effects of your microcurrent facial. Some examples are smoking and suntanning, which destroy your skin’s collagen levels and trigger premature skin aging.

Even though microcurrent facials can be on the pricey side, think of them as a long-term investment for younger-looking skin.

Dermaplane: The Peach Fuzz Solution

DESUAR Spa | Day Spa Services in Downtown Los Angeles

Do you have large pores, unwanted facial hair, and uneven skin texture? Read on as we tackle one of the go-to treatment of many today.

Laser Genesis: The Ultimate Way To Minimize Pores | Vein & Laser Institute

Our skin is daily exposed to harsh environmental toxins, irritants, and sun damage. This can cause the top layer of your skin to appear dull, and it can make you look aged.

Among the many treatments we have on the market, there is this one who is making a buzz by providing greater results against peach fuzz and considered to be the best exfoliant for all- The Dermaplaning. This is also one of the most sought after treatment at DESUAR Spa- the haven that provides quality treatment to the many people who wanted to look good and feel great of themselves.

But what is a Dermaplane and what it does to your skin?

Dermaplaning is a skin treatment that exfoliates your skin and skim off dirt and vellus hair, better known as “peach fuzz.” It’s also called microplaning or blading. It aims to make your skin’s surface smooth, youthful, and radiant. This treatment claims to remove deep scarring from acne and uneven pockmarks on your skin.

It’s different from dermabrasion, where an aesthetician or doctor uses a high-speed, rotating brush to exfoliate the skin. With dermaplaning, they use a scalpel or a tool called a dermatome. The doctor or aesthetician moves the dermatome, which looks like an electric razor, back and forth to scrape off the top layer of dead skin.

If you look at the tool used for dermaplaning treatments, you may notice it looks like a razor you would use on your body hair.

The basic concept of dermaplaning is the same as shaving. By aiming a sterile blade at a 45-degree angle and dragging it slowly across your skin, you remove dead cells, scar tissue, and other debris that may be making your skin’s surface look uneven.

Benefits of Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning Facial Is So Much More Than Shaving Your Face

According to WebMD, The exfoliation and hair removal can leave your skin brighter and smoother. The treatment may soften fine lines and wrinkles and ease hyperpigmentation, or uneven skin tone. It’s also used to treat deep acne scars. How well it works really depends on your skin type, tone, and medical history.

Dermaplaning is a manual exfoliation meant to be performed primarily on the face. Also known as leveling the skin or blading, it involves the use of a sterile surgical blade, known as a dermatome, that gently scrapes away the top layer of problem skin. The dermatome is held against taut skin at a 45-degree angle and stroked in a manner similar to shaving.

This method removes the outermost layer of dead skin cells, leaving the skin smooth and supple.

Dermaplaning is usually only performed on the face and generally excludes any blading of the nose, eye lids, neck, or chest. It is recommended that the procedure be done every 3 to 4 weeks (or once a month), which coincides with a normal skin cycle of approximately 30 days.

Dermaplaning is wonderful for exfoliating the skin and for those that have peach fuzz on their face. It removes this along with dead skin cells, resulting in healthier looking skin. This treatment is great for someone who has sensitive skin or facial hair that does not respond to laser hair removal. Removal of this outer layer of dead skin cells and fine hair enhances the penetration and speed of your personal skin care regimen. It is great for priming the skin for a Chemical Peel.

After the treatment, your make up will go on better and your skin will be very smooth. This is a no downtime procedure.

Risks and Side Effects

Dermaplaning is a low-risk procedure. Side effects may include slight redness in your face in the hours after getting the treatment. Some people develop whiteheads on their skin in the day or two after dermaplaning.

Infection and scarring are rare after dermaplaning, but they do occur. If you develop a scar from dermaplaning, your doctor may need to treat the scar tissue with a steroid injection to soften the scar tissue.

Another possible side effect is a patchy skin pigment in the area where you have the procedure, which may decrease or disappear as time goes on.

Short-term side effects may include:

  • Red and swollen skin from the scraping
  • Soreness
  • A burning or tingling sensation for about 48 hours after the procedure
Dermaplaning isn’t recommended if you have inflammatory skin conditions such as:

Where Can You Get It?

It’s best to go to a licensed aesthetician or doctor in DESUAR Spa if you’re thinking about trying dermaplaning.

Do-it-yourself kits and tools are available online and at your local drugstore. But because you’re using a very sharp blade, you may cut your skin when you scrape it. This can lead to infection or other problems.

Schedule an appointment with DESUAR Spa if you’re concerned about your skin because it feels great to look good.

The Future of Skin Health

DESUAR Spa | Day Spa Services in Downtown Los Angeles

Do you want to achieve the best skin of your life?3 Best Skin Care Creams - Women Fitness

Is your skin dull and lackluster or bright and glowing?

Are you plagued by blackheads, blocked pores, acne or dry skin?

How visible are your pores? Are they filled with dirt and debris?

No need to book separate facials for this — one HydraFacial should do the trick! Hailed as a “one-stop shop” for rejuvenating your skin, this non-invasive treatment has skyrocketed in popularity in recent years.

According to hundreds of Skin Health experts, hydration is the single most important factor in healthy skin. Dryness, scaly skin, flakes or peeling, even tight-feeling skin can be indicators for lack of hydration.

Known for its three-step process, the HydraFacial works to deep-clean, exfoliate, and hydrate your skin. This professional procedure may help treat a variety of skin conditions, such as:

  • Oily, acne-prone skin
  • Dry skin
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Sun damage
  • Age spots
  • Blackheads
  • Enlarged and clogged pores

Due to the deep exfoliation that cleans your pores, removing debris and allowing for better penetration of face serums tailored to your skin type, the HydraFacial is said to help improve overall skin texture, tone, and appearance.

It is a patented skin treatment available in DESUAR Spa. It’s also sometimes called “hydradermabrasion” because it involves microdermabrasion-like exfoliation paired with hydrating serums.

This technology relies on a suction-based device to cleanse and remove dirt and debris from your pores. This same device refills your pores with hydrating peptides and antioxidants, leaving you with an instant glow. Post-treatment, you can actually see all the gunk that’s been flushed from your pores – something many clients enjoy.

Hydrafacial just got even better with  Syndeo.

Look no further! Here at Desuar Spa, we’re introducing the newest Hydrafacial technology called Hydrafacial Syndeo. Hydrafacial | Glendale | Roman Esthetics

PlaSon: The Ultimate Acne Treatment!

DESUAR Spa | Day Spa Services in Downtown Los Angeles

Suffering from significant distress from acne? wrinkles? scars?

For many people who have acne, the skin disease affects more than their appearance. Acne can take a toll on one’s emotional health. Researchers have found in study after study that people with acne can also develop:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Low self-esteem
  • Poor self-image
  • Decreased quality of life
  • A feeling of being all alone

Even mild acne can affect one’s emotional health. This is especially true for teenage girls. In studies, teen girls often say that acne makes them feel unattractive.

Given that acne can lead to such experiences and feelings, it’s not surprising that researchers have found that people with acne often develop depression or anxiety.

Studies show that the longer acne lasts, the more likely it is to affect one’s emotions. Without treatment, acne can also worsen. If acne becomes severe, scars can appear as the acne clears.

Fret not! We got you!

Introducing the latest technology DESUAR Spa offers for the treatment of acne, PlaSon!

Artemis Distribution Plason From: Artemis Distribution | MedEsthetics

 

PlaSon is FDA registered, non invasive and quick!

It is a device that uses heat and electricity to penetrate the skin with plasma that allows your skin to rebuild collagen, heal and sterilize active acne.

It is effectively used in transdermal drug absorption, wrinkles, scar, peels, inflammation and wound healing. By opening up the skin with Plasma poration and driving drug absorption with SonoPoration, it is an ultimate TDDS that one can ever dream of.

What is active acne?

When your skin has acne, there are various stages that the skin goes through. Active acne is when the acne or fluid is visible on the skin, accompanied by bumps and sometimes very painful. Other indicators of an active acne infection is redness and inflammation of the facial skin.

Your skin captures and holds onto bacteria and pollution from the outside world and PlaSon stops these free radicals in their tracks allowing your skin to heal and protect overtime. This treatment attacks acne at its core without damaging your skin and virtually zero down-time needed following your visit. The results are stronger, less-wrinkle and clearer skin.

PlaSon Plasma Skin Rejuvenation – FaceMagicHaven

Plason uses an advanced plasma technology to treat acne by removing bacteria and aiding in transdermal absorption within the skin. And, it stimulates skin regeneration and boosts collagen for clearer, healthier, firmer skin.

The Plason device also reduces hyperpigmentation and wrinkles.

With the clinically proven Plason device, most people start to see results after just 1-2 sessions.

PlaSon has been shown to be a solution for:

  • Active Acne
  • Skin Regeneration

Plason has been shown to be an effective treatment for: – Active Acne – Skin Regeneration – Collagen Remodeling – Sebum Reduction – Wrinkles – Scarring – Anti Pigmentation

HOW OFTEN CAN I HAVE A TREATMENT?

SHOULD ANYONE NOT HAVE PLASON?

  • Pregnancy/Breastfeeding
  • Under 18 years of age (Without parent or guardian approval)
  • Pacemaker or internal defibrillator

  • Botox (Wait at least 2 weeks)

HOW QUICKLY WILL I SEE RESULTS?

Results can be seen after just 1 treatment, to get your desired results we recommend consulting with your technician. Individual results may vary.

ARE RESULTS PERMANENT?

Results are not 100% permanent, but can be maintained with a course of maintenance treatments (recommended 1-2 per month).

DO I HAVE TO DO ANYTHING IN PARTICULAR AFTER THE PLASON TREATMENT?

  • Immediately after the treatment the skin may be slightly red, this is normal and will pass in the next 20 minutes or so
  • Please do not place any products on the skin after the treatment for 4-6 hrs, unless supplied by your esthetician
  • Do not go to the Gym or exercise vigorously enough to sweat for 4-6 hrs
  • Try not to touch the treated area for 1 hour after treatment
  • Do not shower or get the treated area wet for 4-6 hours
  • Please take regular photographs of your progress/healing to share with us
  • Please use mineral based make-up after 4-6 hrs to maximize results
  • Please consult with your esthetician regarding SPF
  • Please consult with your esthetician regarding moisturizer
  • If in any doubt please contact your esthetician

Early treatment can prevent these problems. It can clear the skin and prevent acne from worsening. Some people need to continue treating their skin to prevent breakouts. For most people that’s probably a lot easier than dealing with the emotional distress and permanent acne scars.

Go and achieve that youthful and glowing skin with us!

50 minutes of CBD Infused Sport Deep Tissue Massage + Foot and Hand Scrub.

 

Refresh Dad’s body and soul with this premium package!

Incorporating cannabidiol, commonly known as CBD, with a therapeutic massage is a natural combination. The properties found in CBD provide relief to those experiencing pain and muscle tension.

What exactly is CBD?

CBD is extracted from the cannabis plant but does not contain the psychoactive drug THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). It has no narcotic effects, and it should not be confused with marijuana. CBD products are sold in a variety of forms, including massage oils.

When combined with therapeutic massage, clients report that they feel even more relaxed than with a massage that incorporates traditional oils and lotions. Studies show that when applied topically, CBD decreases inflammation and pain.

CBD oil works much like regular massage oil. CBD is mixed with a carrier oil – the oil that is used to lubricate the skin. Not only does CBD relax the body during a massage, people report they feel more relaxed throughout the day and often into the nighttime.

This also comes with a feel of our warm, tender touch. Let us knead your hands, toes and soles as every nerve screams a message of healing joy to the other parts of your body. The tingling you will feel—everywhere—is perfectly normal, and you’ll never want it to stop. Get this at Desuar Spa

Restore dad’s tranquility and peace with this deluxe experience!

Uses fragrant oils extracted from herbs, flowers and fruits to naturally enhance the benefits of massage.

Both massage and aromatherapy are known for their potential benefits for body and mind. Aromatherapy massage combines the two to achieve psychological and physiological well being. Given the range of massage techniques and the variety of essential oils you can use on clients, aromatherapy is another way to create more personalized health and well-being outcomes for individuals, according to their health background.

If you have dry, irritated skin and all the moisturizing in the world isn’t working for you – a Hydrating Facial is something to consider.

 

BENEFITS OF A HYDRATING FACIAL

Another reason to love this facial – especially if your skin doesn’t react well with facials in general – is this one is suitable for all skin types (even the sensitive ones!)

Here are 5 benefits of a hydrating facial your face will love —

  • Hydration = Less Irritation – moisture is locked in with this facial and allows the skin to heal and repair over time. Say “buh-bye” dry, flaky, irritated skin.
  • Improved Skin Tone & Texture – exfoliation does its job without stripping your face of necessary moisture and oil. With dead skin cells gone, your skin tone and texture reveal a smooth, even surface.
  • Bright & Supple Complexion – that hydrating serum works its magic and aids in moisture retention, balance, and circulation. This gives way to skin that’s full and bright.
  • Decreased oil (in excess) & breakouts – too much oil and you’re prone to Too little oil and your face is begging for moisture. This Hydrating Facial balances and regulates oil production on your face, so you feel more like you’re treating your face than servicing your car.
  • Enhanced Skin Care Product Absorption – because your skin has been cleansed, toned, exfoliated and protected with this facial, the absorption of skin care products on your face will be easier to penetrate the skin. Better absorption means your skin care products have a better chance of working and supporting your skin.

HOW SLEEPING WITH MAKEUP ON CAN ADVERSELY AFFECT YOUR SKIN?

HOW SLEEPING WITH MAKEUP ON CAN ADVERSELY AFFECT YOUR SKIN?

“I’ve not put on that much makeup today, and my skin is still looking fine, even after a long tiring day, it’s ok skip the bedtime cleansing tonight” If you think this way, I swear by the skincare goddess that you are going to damage your healthy skin very soon. Sleeping with a grimy face and makeup can cause extensive harm to your skin, especially during the night.

Let’s get to know how:

  • Makeup can clog the pores

Unremoved makeup embeds itself into your skin pores, and letting it stay there for a whole night will clog your pores. It’s necessary to remove your makeup and cleanse your skin to give those poor pores a chance to breathe, stay clean and healthy.

nose

clogged and enlarged pores

  • Chances of breakouts

You are allowing the whole day’s dirt, debris, and bacteria to build up on your skin, which results in inflammation. Sleeping with a face full of makeup (usually oil-based makeup products) will result in blackheads and heinous breakouts.

MAKEUP

Dull complexion

  • Dull complexion

Makeup adversely affects the skin if you wear it for longer hours. It will settle down into your fine lines and creases, that everyone’s skin has, and that causes your skin to look dull and grey.

  • Dry and cracked skin

Makeup worn for the whole day sucks the skin’s moisture, this is even worse at night since that is when your body recovers and repairs itself, including your skin. That is a big reason for dry and cracked skin, if you habitually sleep without removing your foundation, concealer, and other products. But, removing it helps your skin to feel light, fresh, and maintain its moisture levels.

skin-mirror

Premature Aging

  • Early skin aging

The skin goes through its healing and rejuvenation process overnight, but makeup chemicals, and all that grime, make this repair process much harder. Due to disrupted collagen production, you will begin to notice fine lines, wrinkles, and fatigue signs appearing sooner than they should.

Sound sleep, with a cleansed face, decreases cortisol (stress hormone) levels, helping skin replenish and repair the daytime damage.

Getting luxuriously glowing skin is as easy as one, two, three!!!

Following the 3 basic steps of a skincare routine are sufficient to get gorgeous skin:

  1. Cleansing to remove dirt

  2. Exfoliating to get rid of dead skin cells, and

  3. Moisturizing to balance the skin moisture and pH level.

HOW POOR DIET AFFECTS YOUR SKIN

We are all so concerned about our daily skincare routine, for but are we giving equal importance to our daily food intake routine too???

“You are what you eat” is a term easily thrown around, but it’s actually a bigger truth than you might think. Our skin condition reflects what we eat and how we look after ourselves from the inside out. Our bodies function best when we fuel it with balanced, healthy, and nutritious food.

The following are the skin conditions you may experience due to poor diet.

POOR DIET AFFECTS YOUR SKIN
  • Dry skin

A dehydrated body will suck the moisture out of your whole body, including the skin. If your body is running out of the water, your skin will appear dry, flaky, and stretched. If you drink more water and eat hydrating foods, these nasty side effects can be avoided.

POOR DIET AFFECTS YOUR SKIN
  • Rough and dull skin

If your diet is lacking certain minerals and vitamins, be ready for dull, rough-textured, saggy, and uneven complexioned skin. The main component of skin structure is collagen, which relies on vitamin C. Eating citrus, and dark leafy green foods can help you regain your beautiful skin. Other vital vitamins and minerals include Biotin, Vitamin E, and Zinc. Beans, nuts, and seafood are good sources for these nutrients.

 
  • Acne

As well as having a good skincare routine, many estheticians suggest you evaluate your iodine intake if you have frequent acne breakouts. Iodine-rich foods may make the skin more prone to acne breakouts.

  • Inflamed face

A diet that includes frequent consumption of highly processed food, refined carbohydrates, and TV dinner style foods, can cause mild inflammation in the body and intensify skin problems such as acne, puffiness, and red or flushed appearance.

  • Stretch marks

If you are lacking truly nutritious food in your diet, your body is likely deprived of essential minerals like zinc. And, as you age or gain weight, skin will stretch and leaves you to face the stretch marks and scars. Mitigate these scars and stretch marks with spinach and diets high in zinc content.

  • Saggy-baggy eyes

Alcohol intake dehydrates your body and leads to under-eye bags. Alcohol also reduces your sleeping hours, leaving your body with less time for effective restoration and relaxation.

  • Wrinkled forehead

Top skin experts believe that deep, carved lines on your forehead are an SOS to stop overconsumption of sugary foods. Too much sugar intake, especially refined sugar, breaks the elastin and collagen in our skin, which is necessary to keep our skin firm.

POOR DIET AFFECTS YOUR SKIN
  • Aging

Eating fast food often deprives your body of the essential nutrients like minerals, proteins, vitamins, and good fats, which means you’re not getting enough, therefore aging your skin.

Understanding the Benefits and Proper Use of Vitamin C

Vitamin C is one of those products that your skin just can’t get enough of. There is a lot Vitamin C can do for your skin, it has many benefits; including brightening dark spots, protecting the skin from UV damage, promoting collagen production, smoothing fine lines, healing acne, and is a powerful antioxidant that can neutralize and help repair free radicals caused by UV exposure, pollution and environmental factors. Because it also inhibits melanin production in the skin, it also helps lighten hyperpigmentation and even skin tone to enhance skin radiance.

Commonly, Vitamin C is safe to use and well accepted by the skin, in some cases it can sting or itch a little bit, or cause redness, especially if applying after exfoliating scrubs or acid peels. There are many factors that will contribute to maximize your Vitamin C benefits. Having a dedicated skin care routine along with consistency is key for maximum results, so add it to your routine in a way that makes sense for you.

The type of vitamin C serum you select, as well as how you use and store it, can significantly affect how much you actually get out of it. Vitamin C products aren’t all created the same way, and in some cases it can be irritating to use, especially if you have sensitive or reactive skin. It’s always recommended to read the product label and know what you’re buying.

It’s always suggested to check your product vitamin C concentration to decided what is suitable for you. If you have sensitive skin it’s best to start with the lowest concentration and work your way up. However, skin that produces a lot of sebum and is heavily pigmented a high concentration of vitamin C can be more suitable to attack those skin concerns.

How should you use vitamin C? There is no right or wrong way to use it. However, studies have suggested that using it during the morning is the best time, considering that is when UV radiation is at its highest, and it will help protect from UV damage. There are many ways to apply vitamin C serum, it can be applied underneath your moisturizer, or under your SPF if your vitamin C product is both a moisturizer and antioxidant.

Natural sources of Vitamin C

There are some other ingredients that should never be mixed with vitamin C: Benzoyl Peroxide can oxidize vitamin C and, as a result, will make it less potent. If you want to use Benzoyl Peroxide I advise using it during your evening skin-care routine, and skip few days in between uses. Another product I warn my clients to be careful of combining is Retinol, combining them can result in making your skin more sensitive and weakening your skin’s barrier. For this reason, I also advise to alternate days, and use Retinoid products during the evening, but never in combination with vitamin C.

Make sure to properly store your vitamin C products. In topical skin-care products, vitamin C is sensitive to light and air. For this reason, it can’t be store in any direct light. When vitamin C is exposed to these factors, it becomes oxidized to dehydroascorbic acid, which is less stable and less effective. Products should be stored in containers that are either air-restrictive, or air-tight, and restrict the light.

It’s important to check vitamin C product formulations before you purchase. There are different types of vitamin C that you might find in different types of products. Some of these are more stable than others, meaning they won’t oxidize as quickly, and some of them have distinctive properties that can make them more suited to certain skin types.

For example, L-ascorbic acid and sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate are water-soluble, meaning they’re more likely to show up in products that are lighter, and therefore better suited to oilier skin. If you have dry, or mature skin, look for more moisturizing products containing lipid-soluble forms of vitamin C, like Ascorbyl Palmitate and Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate.

Consider throwing out any vitamin C products that have dramatically changed color since you bought them, which means they might be expired and the efficacy has been affected. Lastly, it’s also important when following any skin care regimen, it’s a must to protect the skin against UV damage with an antioxidant and daily use of an SPF.

What is a Micro-current Facial?

What Is Micro-current And Why Is It So Popular?

Micro-current is a popular new facial treatment that offers an immediate and visible lifting and rejuvenating effect on the face. These effects are temporary, but increase with repeated treatments, both in the cumulative lifting effect, and the longevity of that effect. Micro-current uses low-voltage electricity to stimulate muscles, Adenosine Tri-Phosphate (ATP) cell growth, and collagen development in the dermis of the face. Micro-current rapidly restores cell energy, working at a cellular level that mimics the body’s natural healing processes.

This is, by far, one of my favorite skin care treatments. This FDA approved, non-invasive facial device will stimulate your facial muscles for an immediate, natural looking lift. Micro-current will help tighten and smooth the muscles and connective tissues in the face by increasing cellular activity, and has been shown to reduce wrinkles, and lift the skin.

Micro-current facial gives your faces a workout.

An eyebrow-raising beauty trend, called a micro-current facial, aims to do just that. The noninvasive treatment involves zapping your face with a tiny electrical current, hence micro-current, to stimulate, tone and tighten facial muscles. It is one of the most effective, non-invasive, ways to instantly turn back the clock. Micro-current will lift loose skin, tighten and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. It accomplishes this miracle by doing 2 things; “depuff” the face by draining the fluid between the cells that tends to accumulate as we age, and toning the muscles of the face, which naturally tightens and smooths the face.

Treatments twice a week are recommended initially, optimally in a series of 15 sessions, thereafter monthly maintenance sessions will help you maintain the results. Remember that the effects are cumulative, you will see better results with each successive treatment, the results also last longer with each treatment. The pulsation created by the micro-current allows the cells to pump out the toxic material trapped inside them. Micro-current also increases the level of amino acids in injured and damaged cells, Amino Acids are the building blocks of life that the body utilizes for cell regeneration. This will accelerate cellular repair and rejuvenation tremendously. An increased level of ATP Adenosine Tri-Phosphate has also been documented. ATP is the 2nd most important component of the cell, after DNA.

Micro-current involves stimulating the tissues with tiny micro-amps of electric current, which mimic the current and frequency that naturally occur in the body, to support the cell’s own natural biological processes. These beneficial actions contribute to the rejuvenation of facial tissues. Studies have shown that aside from firming up facial muscles, micro-current has significant influence on other soft tissue systems, increasing the production of collagen and ATP (Adenosine Tri-Phosphate) within the cells, and promotes cellular exchange, it is particularly effective at promoting this cellular exchange in damaged or injured areas. The intended use of this device in esthetics is to provide the esthetician with a powerful and effective tool to aid in the battle against aging skin, by diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, thereby improving the texture and appearance of the skin, and by reducing the overall visual appearance of aging.
