My Best Beauty Tips

Published March 5, 2013 3:55 PM by Mina Grasso
Five Common Beauty Problems
  1. Acne/Acne Scars - Systemic medication such as Accutane with potential serious side effects may be avoided with the use of topical anti-acne and antibiotics combined with Cooltouch and Spectra Laser treatments that help to reduce over-productive sebaceous glands without downtime. Also, these lasers stimulate collagen production so patients see improvement in their acne scars.
  2. Brown Spots and Melasma can now be treated safely and effectively with a Q-switched Spectra Laser enhanced with the topical application of hydroquinone and tretinoin. Melasma sufferers can now experience long-term results because this treatment will change abnormal melanocytes structurally to behave more like normal cells.
  3. Age-Reversing Non-Ablative Lasers can reduce fine lines, wrinkles and pore size as well as tone and tighten skin. With a series of treatments that can be performed during your lunchtime, you can see remarkable results.
  4. Skin analysis is recommended to determine the status of your skin compared to those in the same age group. A Visia Skin Analysis can give a baseline report of your skin's UV damage, brown spots, pore size, underlying redness, wrinkles, bacteria and texture. It provides objective data to monitor treatment results.
  5. Don't forget your neck, chest and hands. Frequently, a mis-match is apparent between the skin on the face and the skin on the neck, chest and hands. As you start to protect, preserve and rejuvenate your skin with anti-aging creams and age-reversing treatments, don't forget about your neck, chest and hands. 

Five Tips for Makeup

  1. Permanent Makeup Beauty 24/7. Why not wake up with makeup? Soft, subtle and natural. It doesn't have to look scary. Take caution in choosing an experienced technician, preferably in a medical spa setting.
  2. Skin Care in Your Makeup Jane Iredale Glow Time - BB Cream nourishes your skin while protecting it from UV and free radical damage. It covers blemishes, minimizes pores, disguises wrinkles, smoothes and brightens skin. It helps promote luminous and radiant skin.  
  3. Latisse for Eyelashes The only FDA-approved prescription treatment for inadequate or not enough lashes. Lashes grow longer, fuller and darker. Latisse can double eyelash fullness in 16 weeks.  
  4. Lipstick Bleeding into Lip Lines Lip lines, often referred to as "smoker's lines" although more related to genetics, can make lipstick look sloppy. Restylane or Juvederm can fix this instantly. A small amount of product can be used to give the lips a more defined and hydrated look rather than a "ducky" or "trout pout" appearance.
  5. Dark circles - Tired Look Save money and time on concealers. In a majority of cases, dark circles are related to volume loss in the face, creating a hollow look that appears as dark semicircles under the eyes that make a person look tired. Tissue fillers can be used to instantly reduce the dark circles and make you look more rested and refreshed.
