Summer is a Great Time for Microneedling

Posted by Amy Raval on Jun 12, 2020 9:00:00 AM

Although the name of this procedure may sound a little painful – the needling part – it is only mildly uncomfortable. Just as the name implies, this procedure uses micro needle - a tool called the Rejuvapen - to create invisible, vertical, micro perforations into the top layer of skin. Your body responds to these microscopic injuries by activating the natural healing process, increasing blood flow to the area and producing new collagen and elastin. Most patients end up with brighter, more youthful looking skin after this quick, 30-60 minute treatment.

Laser Skin Treatment for Enlarged Pores

Posted by Amy Raval on Apr 16, 2020 5:54:00 PM

What Are Pores? Why Are Mine So BIG?

Let’s talk pores. First of all, what are pores? The skin is the largest human organ and it’s covered with millions of pores that allow the skin to “breathe.” In each pore is a tiny hair (except on the palms of the hands and the bottoms of the feet). Each pore on the face, back, chest, and groin contains a hair follicle with a gland inside it, called the sebaceous gland, which produces oil or sebum. When this gland releases, the sebum rises to the top and collects in the pore. Hormones play a large role in how and when the sebaceous gland releases.

Many say wrinkles are a sign of wisdom and maturity. Smile lines and crow’s feet signify a life lived happily.

Laser Resurfacing Under the Eyes

Posted by Amy Raval on Apr 1, 2020 5:04:25 PM

As we get older and start to notice changes in our skin, we are most likely to notice the wrinkles around our eyes first. This skin is the most delicate of all the body and will quickly show signs of ageing and fatigue. There are fewer collagen and elastin fibers around the eye making it more prone to sagging and wrinkling. On top of its delicate nature, the skin around our eyes can show unique conditions such as puffiness, dark circles, milia, wrinkles, and loss of firmness. This is why there is such a massive market for under eye creams and treatments. If you have been throwing your money at these products without real results, you may be considering Laser Skin Resurfacing. Let’s take a look at the procedure and common outcomes as well as risks and recovery times.
