Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid in Skin Care

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body that helps retain moisture in the skin. As skin ages, the production of this natural moisturizer slows, dehydrating the skin, and causing it to lose elasticity. This is why using a product that contains hyaluronic acid is crucial in maintaining youthful-looking skin.

The PCA Skin Hyaluronic Acid Boosting Serum available at our office is a great option. Being one of the only hyaluronic acid serums for all skin types, this advanced formulation provides instant and long-lasting hydration. It does this on three levels: on the surface, deeper in the skin, and by increasing the skin’s own hyaluronic acid production. Regular use not only protects the skin’s natural collagen/elastin, but also defends against environmental damage.

To learn more about it, or any of the other skin care products containing hyaluronic acid we offer, contact our office today.

Tips to Keep Your Pores Looking Their Best

7 February 2019, Comments Comments Off on Tips to Keep Your Pores Looking Their Best

Enlarged pore size is a relatively common distress for many people. The appearance of them alone can be quite concerning, but along with that, they can also lead to blackheads. Although pores cannot physically be made smaller there are some tips to make them appear smaller:

    • Wash/cleanse your face every night with a cleanser specifically related to your skin type.  Hot water actually opens up the pores of the face, which in turn allows you to remove excess build up. A splash of cold water thereafter will make your pores close up.

        Apply an oil free moisturizer after you wake up and before you go to bed (products containing oil actually enlarges pores by clogging them).

          Exfoliating agents such as prescribed retinoid medications, retinols, and microdermabrasions can provide more than a basic cleanse because they can completely strip the oils and debris caught in the pores.

            Wash your makeup off at night because clogged pores can produce oil buildup.

These tips, combined with pore minimizing products can effectively reduce the appearance of pores. Contact our office today if you would like to address your enlarged pores.

The Dreaded Cellulite

11 January 2019, Comments Comments Off on The Dreaded Cellulite

Whether in celebrity gossip magazines or on entertainment news shows, I’m sure you’re quite familiar with cellulite.

Cellulite is a common skin condition typically found in women, caused by a change on the surface of the skin. It is evidenced by dimpling of the skin, occurring mainly on the abdomen, pelvic region, or lower limbs.

Despite many misconceptions, cellulite is not caused by an individual’s weight. The actual cause is from a loss of elasticity in the connective tissue under the skin. Fat in the cellulite then gets trapped in the connective tissue and creates the dimple-like appearance. There are many treatments out there to reduce the appearance of cellulite but one of the most effective is through the use of heated lasers.

The VelaShape III, now available at our office, uses a combination of infrared (IR), Bi-Polar Radio-Frequency (RF) and mechanical tissue manipulation using pulsed vacuum and massage. The combination of the infrared and vacuum coupled radio-frequency technologies causes deep heating of the connective tissue which results in a localized reduction in skin laxity and volume to lessen the appearance of cellulite. Contact our office today if you feel you may have cellulite.
