What is Micro Needling? Fast Facts on this Treatment for Scars, Wrinkles and Sagging Skin

St. Clair Shores Micro Needling ServiceIf you’re looking for noninvasive ways to cope with your acne scars, reduce fine lines and wrinkles or improve the appearance of stretch marks, you’ve probably come across the rapidly growing procedure called micro needling. There are a number of impressive studies that show the treatment, which uses small needles to prick the skin and jumpstart the body’s natural healing process, is an easy and efficient way to overcome a number of problematic skin conditions.

Many people have questions and concerns about micro needling and what it entails. Here are some fast facts about the skin treatment that’s redefining the way we improve the appearance of skin.

Who is Micro Needling Good For?

Wondering if the treatment is right for you? Here’s a list of the different reasons people look into micro needling therapy:
•Lift and tighten your skin
•Minimize skin discoloration
•Reduce the appearance of acne or other eligible scars
•Minimize fine lines and wrinkles
•Minimize pore size
•Improve the appearance of stretch marks.

How Does Micro Needling Work?

One of the most common questions that clients have is how a little pen has such a profound impact on wrinkles, scars and stretch marks. The concept is actually simple. A practitioner uses a micro needling tool, such as the Rejuvapen, to create microscopic pricks on the problematic area. The tiny needles on the pen make invisible perforations in the epidermis and the top layer of the dermis. Your body registers that it’s been injured and starts to heal itself. Collagen and elastin are rushed to the area, where they then rejuvenate your skin.

After the procedure, your skin will likely feel warm and tight, and it may appear as though you have a moderate sunburn. These side effects usually subside within a matter of hours, and most people see their skin return to normal in 24 hours. Your practitioner may be able to recommend a serum or other skin treatment to minimize any discomfort after your appointment.

Is Micro Needling Safe and Effective?

It seems simple, right? That’s because it is! The beauty of micro needling is that it simply spurs your body’s natural healing abilities. One study published in the Journal of Cutaneous and Aesthetic Surgery found that 80 percent of micro needling clients qualified the reduction of their facial scarring as “excellent” after two months of treatment. No adverse affects were noted in any of the people who participated!

This isn’t the only research that touts the benefits of micro needling. A study of almost 500 individuals conducted by Lutronic concluded that “the results obtained after the final [micro needling] treatment session continued to improve over time, and patient satisfaction with the procedure was very high with excellent compliance.” source: prettyology.com

Here’s Why Chemical Peels Are the Secret to Perfect Skin

St. Clair Shores Chemical PeelsA spotless, lineless, flawless complexion is lying just beneath the surface of your skin—and doctors have found that a classic treatment is the fastest way there.

Satin slip dresses slinked down the spring runways. Celebrities are wearing chokers on the red carpet. And here’s one more ’90s revival for you: the chemical peel. After being eclipsed in the early 2000s by new skin-resurfacing lasers, these classic treatments (like, ancient-Egypt classic) are back on top in dermatologists’ offices. More people are getting them now than in 1997 (when peels were the number-one cosmetic procedure in the country), according to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. “Turns out good old chemical peels can actually deliver certain skin benefits—like reversing melasma and breakouts—better than high-tech devices,” says Doris Day, a clinical associate professor of dermatology at NYU Langone Medical Center. By casting off dull surface cells, they improve fine lines, acne, discoloration, and more. And they do it for all skin types and colors—usually for a fraction of the cost of flashier (literally) options. “The minute I switch on a laser, things get expensive,” says Vivian Bucay, a San Antonio dermatologist. A superficial fractional-laser treatment can run up to $1,000 a session—and you’ll probably need several. A medium-depth chemical peel may cost a third of that and “gives more impressive results in a single treatment,” says Bucay (but count on more recovery time).

As with most old-is-new-again ideas, today’s peels aren’t just total retreads (the new slip dresses are better too, FYI). “When glycolic peels got really popular in the ’90s, they hurt like a mother and left skin raw,” says Jeannette Graf, an assistant clinical professor of dermatology at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City. But acid formulas have been refined, and so have dermatologists’ approaches to using them. “Our goal now isn’t so much to cause visible peeling as it is to infuse the skin with ingredients that diminish lines, build collagen, and improve tone,” says Jennifer Linder, an assistant clinical professor of dermatology at the University of California, San Francisco, and the chief scientific officer for the clinical line PCA Skin. Still not sold? Here are five more reasons to book a peel—and help your skin make a radical comeback.

Peels can make your skin—and skin-care products—work better. In minutes, acids lift away dead cells and trigger a lovely chain reaction: “As that topmost layer is shed, signals are sent to the living cells below to multiply and move up, to increase collagen production, to make more hyaluronic acid—to act younger,” says David Bank, an assistant clinical professor of dermatology at Columbia University/Presbyterian Hospital in New York City. A thorough sloughing also offers one very immediate upshot: smoother skin that’s both more radiant and more receptive. “Your skin-care products perform better after a peel because there are no dead cells impeding their penetration,” says New York City dermatologist Neal Schultz, who averages at least 50 peels a week in his Park Avenue office.

They’re low-risk, and you can go custom. There are chemical peels that are safe to use on every skin color without risk of hyperpigmentation (usually a worry with darker complexions). “We now know that using low percentages of multiple acids gives a better outcome with less irritation than a single acid at a higher strength,” Linder says. Doctors have plenty of premixed cocktails to choose from, like PCA Skin Sensi Peel, which mixes trichloroacetic acid (TCA) and lactic acid to rev up collagen synthesis deep down and dissolve the drab skin on top. But a lot of doctors also cook up their own recipes to address very specific concerns. For tenacious brown spots, Bucay adds a pinch of brightening vitamin C or a smidgen of bleaching hydroquinone to her acids of choice. And when treating those same spots on sensitive skin, she offsets the potent lighteners with soothing polyphenols.

The right peel can end acne and soften the scars that come with it. Salicylic acid peels and Jessner’s peels (equal parts salicylic acid, lactic acid, and resorcinol, an antiseptic exfoliant) dive deep into skin to unclog pores while also skimming the surface to erode blackheads and fade post-pimple marks. Another advantage of salicylic acid: It lingers in the pores, where it continues to keep them clear over time. To improve pitted acne scars, Harold J. Brody, a clinical professor of dermatology at Emory University in Atlanta, targets individual divots with a high percentage of TCA before applying a weaker acid to the rest of the face to even things out. “I think this method beats most resurfacing lasers, plus there’s little to no downtime and it’s safe for all skin colors,” he says. Bucay prefers treating acne scars with peels to skirt this surprising laser pitfall: “There’s roughly a 30 percent chance of an acne eruption following Fraxel,” she says. “It’s really disheartening when someone gets a flare-up of the very thing that left her with scars in the first place.”

Nothing controls melasma better. There isn’t a permanent cure for the recurring sun-triggered dark patches brought on by hormonal surges (like those caused by pregnancy and the Pill), but chemical peels (paired with at-home bleaching creams, high-SPF sunscreen, and strict sun avoidance) offer the best fighting chance. Lasers may make lofty claims, yet “they’re essentially trying to treat a light- and heat-sensitive condition with light and heat,” says Cheryl Burgess, an assistant clinical professor of dermatology at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. Even when a laser does eviscerate splotches initially, pigment often reappears weeks later, making lasers seem like a major investment for a short-term reprieve.

A peel will let you (maybe) toss your undereye concealer. We don’t even like opening our eyes in the pool, so we’ll be the first to admit that acid near our eyeballs sounds dicey. But doctors say Glytone’s new Enerpeel Technology Brightening Peel System works beautifully and safely on the hereditary dark circles created by piled-up pigment. They credit the form of the acid—3.75 percent TCA and 15 percent lactic acid in a nondrippy gel carefully dispensed via a pen applicator—and the delivery system, which “drives the acid in deep, bypassing the epidermis to lessen irritation,” explains Graf. A series of treatments may be needed, but some people see a profound improvement after just one. source: allure.com

Benefits of Permanent Makeup

permanent makeup st clair shoresThe most obvious benefit of permanent makeup is that it can simply save you time. People with busy schedules, long commutes and numerous commitments can several minutes out of their morning routine each day. And you never have to worry about your makeup smudging or fading — permanent makeup won’t come off after swimming, working out or showering. But there are many reasons for someone to get permanent makeup beyond the timesaving benefits.

With permanent makeup, they can continue to wear makeup without having to worry about whether they’ve applied it accurately. People with poor eyesight may invest in permanent makeup for the same reasons. source: health.howstuffworks.com

botox st. clair shores miWhat Is BOTOX® Cosmetic?

BOTOX® Cosmetic is an injectable agent used to temporarily diminish or eliminate lines and wrinkles on the face by relaxing underlying facial muscles. It is derived from botulinum toxin type A, a bacterium-produced neuromuscular toxin that can be deadly in a pure state. BOTOX® Cosmetic contains a highly diluted form of the toxin and has been proven safe. For this reason, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved BOTOX® botulinum toxin treatment for alleviating eye-muscle disorders and smoothing frown lines. This exceptional treatment is often used in conjunction with facial plastic surgery procedures such as a face lift or eyelid lift to maximize its cosmetic benefit.

Candidates

BOTOX® Cosmetic provides candidates for this increasingly popular procedure with an effective treatment for facial lines and wrinkles. From the treatment of “crow’s feet” at the edge of the eyes to glabellar lines (wrinkles between the brows), BOTOX® Cosmetic can smooth a wide range of facial lines and wrinkles with a simple 10-minute treatment. BOTOX® Cosmetic is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for people aged 18 to 65.

Treatment Candidates

BOTOX® Cosmetic has been proven safe for a wide range of candidates. While there are many medical uses for the protein that makes up BOTOX® Cosmetic, the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles is far and away the most common application. Anyone who would like to smooth wrinkles through BOTOX® Cosmetic – whether they be crow’s feet around the eyes or wrinkles around the mouth – is potentially a candidate for this effective treatment. The best way to find out if BOTOX® Cosmetic is right for you is to speak with a physician.

Candidates for Alternative BOTOX® Uses

There are many other applications for botulinum toxin – the protein from which BOTOX® Cosmetic is derived. Botulinum toxin was first isolated in 1946, and medical applications for the substance were discovered in the 1950s. Alternative uses of BOTOX® Cosmetic now include the following:

  • Hyperhidrosis (Excessive Sweating)
  • Migraine Headaches
  • Dystonia (Muscle Spasms)
  • Jaw Tension
  • Chronic Pain

Top 10 reasons why you need a monthly facial

St. Clair Shores Facial Services

1) Facials allow you to relax. They feel great and are healing to the soul. The power of touch, massage, proper technique, and professional products can heal. I call facials “relaxing with benefits”. Stress relief and beautiful glowing skin? YES PLEASE!

2) Facials increase circulation of the blood under the skin allowing the skin optimal health to facilitate the renewal skin cells.

3) Facials decrease waste underneath the skin that can cause puffiness, ruddiness, and fluid accumulation by manipulating the lymphatic system that lies just under the skin. Facials also aids in detoxification.

4) A good facial (and facial massage) can help smooth fine lines and promote collagen production, which is the building block of the skin (to prevent premature aging, wrinkles, and sagging).

5) A facial will cleanse the pores on a much deeper level. Similar to a good dental cleaning, this is what a facial can do for the skin/pores. Even non-acneic skin can use a good deep cleanse. Extractions/cleaning out the pores can help to maintain clear skin, stop acne formation, as well as can help to change the pore’s size. Often times left unchecked, pores can start to stretch and widen with the accumulation of oil and debris. (Please do not attempt to extract or pick at your own skin unless you are a professional and know how to do it properly- you could be at risk of scarring and infection).

6) Facials provide deep(er) exfoliation than you can achieve at home. Exfoliation smoothes skin, allows for great penetration of products (i.e. moisturizers or serums), unclogs pores, improves skin ability to retain hydration, and evens skin tone to just name a few benefits.

7) Allows a professionally trained esthetician to counsel you on the proper products you should be using at home. This alone is worth the investment as the skincare industry can be a difficult (and expensive) area to navigate.

8) Can help even skin tone and lighten dark spots. Dark spots age our skins’ appearance visibly. Again a gentle reminder- sunscreen is still a necessity no matter how great the facial. (:

9) Facials slow the aging process. They allow your skin to feel healthier, smoother, and look more radiant. Facials reduce fine lines, age spots, and relieve dehydrated skin. With these benefits, facials make us feel better about our skin. With the use of exfoliation, massage, and the penetration of nutrients and antioxidants, facials also fight to reverse aging. We will all age, but we can do it more slowly with glowing, firm, and hydrated skin.

10) Facials are not a miracle in an hour but they do give you a fresh start to a healthier and balanced complexion. Regular facials will help you maintain optimal skin health. source: uniqueskincareboutique.com

Microneedling St. Clair Shores, MI

microneedling st. clair shores mi

Body Sculpting & Spa Services specializes in microneedling in St. Clair Shores, MI. Please call us at (586) 944-0410.

What is Microneedling?

A medical device used for the purpose of breaking down old scar tissue and stimulate skin cells for proliferation. This multiplication results in the creation of new tissue layers of elastin and collagen fibers, as well as improved blood supply.

How does it work?

The device glides gently along the skin, penetrating the layers of the skin closest to the surface, of a depth of up to 2mm to create numerous tiny needle wounds. The therapy encourages the body to respond through creation new collagen and elastin fibers. As the skin responds, it plumps and thickens, reducing the appearance of scars, wrinkles and fine lines.

What conditions does micro-needling treat?*
•Mild to moderate acne scarring
•Surgical scarring
•Fine lines and wrinkles
•Stretch marks
•Pore size and skin texture
•Keloid scarring

Will it be painful?

Numbing cream can be applied prior to the treatment which drastically minimizes or eliminates any pain altogether.

Are there any risks?

The tiny pricking channels close within one hour, and because the procedure is performed under clinical conditions, the likelihood of infection occurring is extremely low.

What are the side effects?

There are virtually no negative side effects from the procedure. None have been reported in over 150,000 procedures performed worldwide. source: dermapenworld.com

massage therapy st clair shoresThe Benefits of using a Massage Therapist

What exactly are the benefits of receiving massage or bodywork treatments? Useful for all of the conditions listed below and more, massage can:

•Alleviate low-back pain and improve range of motion.
•Assist with shorter, easier labor for expectant mothers and shorten maternity hospital stays.
•Ease medication dependence.
•Enhance immunity by stimulating lymph flow—the body’s natural defense system.
•Exercise and stretch weak, tight, or atrophied muscles.
•Help athletes of any level prepare for, and recover from, strenuous workouts.
•Improve the condition of the body’s largest organ—the skin.
•Increase joint flexibility.
•Lessen depression and anxiety.
•Promote tissue regeneration, reducing scar tissue and stretch marks.
•Pump oxygen and nutrients into tissues and vital organs, improving circulation.
•Reduce postsurgery adhesions and swelling.
•Reduce spasms and cramping.
•Relax and soften injured, tired, and overused muscles.
•Release endorphins—amino acids that work as the body’s natural painkiller.
•Relieve migraine pain.

A Powerful Ally

There’s no denying the power of bodywork. Regardless of the adjectives we assign to it (pampering, rejuvenating, therapeutic) or the reasons we seek it out (a luxurious treat, stress relief, pain management), massage therapy can be a powerful ally in your healthcare regimen.

Experts estimate that upwards of ninety percent of disease is stress related. And perhaps nothing ages us faster, internally and externally, than high stress. While eliminating anxiety and pressure altogether in this fast-paced world may be idealistic, massage can, without a doubt, help manage stress. This translates into: •Decreased anxiety.
•Enhanced sleep quality.
•Greater energy.
•Improved concentration.
•Increased circulation.
•Reduced fatigue.
Furthermore, clients often report a sense of perspective and clarity after receiving a massage. The emotional balance bodywork provides can often be just as vital and valuable as the more tangible physical benefits.

Profound Effects

In response to massage, specific physiological and chemical changes cascade throughout the body, with profound effects. Research shows that with massage: •Arthritis sufferers note fewer aches and less stiffness and pain.
•Asthmatic children show better pulmonary function and increased peak air flow.
•Burn injury patients report reduced pain, itching, and anxiety.
•High blood pressure patients demonstrate lower diastolic blood pressure, anxiety, and stress hormones.
•Premenstrual syndrome sufferers have decreased water retention and cramping.
•Preterm infants have improved weight gain.
Research continues to show the enormous benefits of touch—which range from treating chronic diseases, neurological disorders, and injuries, to alleviating the tensions of modern lifestyles. Consequently, the medical community is actively embracing bodywork, and massage is becoming an integral part of hospice care and neonatal intensive care units. Many hospitals are also incorporating on-site massage practitioners and even spas to treat postsurgery or pain patients as part of the recovery process.

Increase the Benefits with Frequent Visits

Getting a massage can do you a world of good. And getting massage frequently can do even more. This is the beauty of bodywork. Taking part in this form of regularly scheduled self-care can play a huge part in how healthy you’ll be and how youthful you’ll remain with each passing year. Budgeting time and money for bodywork at consistent intervals is truly an investment in your health. And remember: just because massage feels like a pampering treat doesn’t mean it is any less therapeutic. Consider massage appointments a necessary piece of your health and wellness plan, and work with your practitioner to establish a treatment schedule that best meets your needs. source: massagetherapy.com
