It's Fun-in-the-Sun Season! Stay Protected!


What will happen if you don't wear sunscreen?

If you are a sun worshipper who loves to have a tan you might not like what I am going to say in the next paragraph.I remember a song from the 70’s with lyrics that said “You’ve got to be cruel to be kind, in the right measure.” I’ve found this to be true so I’ve got to tell you this...

THE #1 CAUSE OF PREMATURE AGING OF THE SKIN IS SUN EXPOSURE! 

Excessive sun exposure literally destroys collagen and DNA. I have sat in a consultation room with women (and men) and seen the long-term consequences on the faces and bodies of sun worshippers. I have seen 30 year-olds who look 40 and I have met people who are 50 with beautiful healthy skin who could pass for 40. I have also met many 50-year-old women who do not look a day under 60, and sometimes 70, because they have spent their life maintaining a tan. It is my responsibility to tell them that there is only so much laser treatments can do, and they do not work well on skin that has been abused with excessive sun exposure. I have seen their tears and heard their cries “I wish I hadn’t spent so much time in the sun. People warned me but I wouldn’t listen.” I have cried with them. Please don’t do this to yourself. A tan looks nice on young skin, but untanned, healthy, youthful looking skin looks better. Get some sun, in moderation, avoid sun burns and if you want that dark tan try tinted SPF or a wonderful self-tanning lotion we carry called Inside Tan! I’ll end with more lyrics from the hit song by Nick Lowe, “Cruel to be kind means I love you baby!”
As we all know skin aging is unavoidable. However, there are some tips to slow that process! Today we are going to talk about the #1 beauty product in the industry. Believe it or not it's Sunscreen! 
Wearing SPF protection everyday rain or shine can save you a couple of early wrinkles, stop the appearance of browns and reds spots, it also slows the skin aging process and most importantly preserves your natural collagen.
We offer three types of sunscreen products, TIZO3 Facial Mineral, Celazome Broad Spectrum and Sunforgettable Mineral Powder. We highly recommend them!

Tired of Acne and Acne Scars?

Seven ways to say “Goodbye” to Acne and Acne scarring! Acne can be disfiguring, demoralizing and frustrating.  It is common during adolescence but can strike anyone at any age.


Acne symptoms can range from an occasional zit to painful cysts.  Left untreated, it can often result in permanent scarring.  Acne scarring is difficult and sometimes impossible to erase.  Much, however, can be done to control acne and prevent acne scarring.

 Do you have acne?  Do your kids have acne?  If so, I’d like to give you something to think about.  We use braces to correct or prevent crooked teeth, don’t we?  Doesn’t it make just as much sense to do what we can for Acne?  The confidence that comes with having clear, smooth, blemish-free skin is at least as important as a nice smile, don’t you think?  The value is comparable but the cost if far less.

The skin condition known as Acne Vulgaris is classified as Grades 1 through 4.  Many factors come together to cause it.  Excessive production of oil from …

EVERYTHING YOU EVER WANTED TO KNOW ABOUT TATTOO REMOVAL… AND SHOULD ASK… BEFORE YOU GET A TATTOO!

With the recent surge in popularity of tattoos and the advancements in tattoo artistry, more and more people are opting to get tattooed.  People get tattoos for many reasons, sometimes after much thought and planning, at other times on the spur-of-the-moment.  The expectation for most is that they will love their tattoo and that they will love it forever.  Unfortunately, that is not always the case.
As the owner of a laser clinic that does a lot of laser tattoo removal I can tell you first hand that sometimes people end up hating their new tattoo from the moment it is completed.  I could tell you many stories of conversations I have had with people who are emotionally devastated when a tattoo does not turn out the way they envisioned it would.  Invariably they express shock and disappointment when they learn what is involved with getting rid of their unwanted ink. 
There is a common misconception that tattoos are just as easy to get off as they are to get on.  Laser tattoo removal ha…

Ultherapy- Non-surgical skin tightening and lifting!

Need a little lift without surgery? Non-surgical skin lifting and tightening!Ultherapy is an award-winning treatment for skin tightening and the only FDA approved treatment in existence for a “lift” indication. It’s in a league of its own and this article will explain why.
The goal of all skin tightening procedures is to cause controlled injury to the skin to induce collagen denaturization and subsequent neocollagenesis. In layman’s terms what this means is that the purpose is to trigger a healing response that will produce new collagen. The greater the injury, the more dramatic and long-lasting the result will be.


COMPARE DEVICES FOR TIGHTENING AND LIFTING:
Laser:The depth of penetration with lasers is precise but very superficial. The injury that is created is limited to about 1 mm, give or take. Some devices deliver the energy in a non-invasive way for subtle results. Others are ablative and great for resurfacing of the skin. A more detailed explanation of ablative laser treatments is…
