Bright-Eyed and Bushy-Tailed?

March 18th, 2014 • Posted by Marissa • Permalink

I am always trying to find ways to look rested and have a more youthful eye area. Obviously, getting more sleep is ideal; however, for those of us that find this is impossible, here are a few ideas to try.

First, start with a great eye cream. You want one that hydrates, soothes puffiness, minimizes dark circles and reduces fine lines and wrinkles. Our Lumiere Eye Cream by Neocutis does all this and more. One way to make your eye cream even more effective is to keep it in the fridge or run your ring finger under cold water to cool the finger and gently tap on the eye cream (always use your ring finger, which is the weakest & therefore the lightest touch, when applying any eye product). Keeping the cream cold helps retract blood vessels thus helping with a more youthful eye.

Lastly, use a good concealer, one specifically for the eye area with brightening properties. These can be found in light to heavy coverage depending on the intensity you are trying to achieve.

Stay Flawless, my friends!

The 411 of Juvederm Voluma

February 25th, 2014 • Posted by Marci • Permalink

We’ve mentioned our excitement about the newest filler to hit the cosmetic injectable market and the amazing difference it can make in restoring volume to reverse the sagging, hollow look many experience in their 40’s and beyond. Here's a little more information about it and how it works.

This product, like other Juvederm products (ultra and ultra plus), is made of hyaluronic acid, a natural sugar that attracts and holds water. It’s an instant hit because it can fill AND lift. This product is thicker than other filler products so it lifts and replenishes the contours such as cheekbones, jawlines, chins and temples. The results can last up to 2 years, which is twice as long as most other fillers. Although serious side effects are rare, bruising and swelling are possible. For that reason, if you have a special event that you want to look your best for, remember to plan accordingly.

Schedule an appointment today to discuss which treatment options are right for you! Stay Flawless!

Spring Renewal

February 18th, 2014 • Posted by Marci • Permalink

With the warmer temperatures we’ve been enjoying, it’s only natural to start thinking about the renewal of spring.

The blossoms of flowers and trees illustrate the cycle of dry, dormant cells that turn over and allow new growth to begin. Our own skin cells also follow this cycle of turn-over, but as we age, our bodies become less efficient at this process. Luckily, there are products and treatments that can help!

Our Epionce Intense Defense Serum is a highly advanced anti-aging serum that stimulates skin rejuvenation to help reverse fine lines, wrinkles, roughness and uneven skin tone while improving firmness, elasticity and texture. It contains vitamins A-E in all forms, made from plant extracts. This product deeply penetrates through the skin barrier to reach targeted cells to strengthen, repair and fortify our skin. Using an exfoliating cleanser like the one we carry in the Neocutis line of products can help to remove dead surface cells gently and effectively, exposing the fresher skin underneath. We also offer several treatments that can help these products work more effectively and can help you put your best face forward. Depending on your skin type, our nurses can recommend a skin regime just for you—and help to start your very own spring renewal!
