Ultherapy® is the only non-invasive procedure cleared by the FDA to lift skin on the neck, under the chin, and on the eyebrow.
Need a lift? Would you like to appear more bright-eyed, enjoy smoother skin, and look younger? No, you don’t need surgery. Rejuvenate Rx now offers Ultherapy®  – According to Ulthera, Inc. (founded in 2004), this time-tested ultrasound energy helps lift and tighten the skin naturally, without surgery or downtime. ”Ultrasound energy” is the science of sound waves that humans can’t hear.
Ultherapy® delivers energy to the connective tissue below the skin and heats the skin at the same time – the combination creates an excellent lifting and tightening of the skin. Ultherapy® can focus the energy to the spots where you need collagen to regenerate itself, without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin.
Rejuvenate’s Dr. Gwyneth Blattau-Gay says, “We’re so excited to offer Ultherapy®, we’ll be able to have an even stronger impact on anti-aging for our clients. Plus, the technique suits our mission of offering access to healthy, non-invasive skin care for a more youthful appearance.”
Dr. Gwyn and her team have been smoothing wrinkles and nurturing skin with innovative techniques and great preventative products, including SkinCeuticals, since Rejuvenate Rx opened on the North Side nearly three years ago. Rejuvenate Rx opened in its brand new, customized location this summer (Wanderemere shopping area).
You’re a good candidate for Ultherapy® if your skin has started to feel and look less firm. Dr. Gwyn says, “We can tighten up a lowered eyebrow line, loose skin on the neck, sagging under the chin, and lines or wrinkles on your chest. It’s awesome!

Dermaplaning at Rejuvenate Rx

Our clients absolutely love dermaplaning!

Dermaplaning is a great way to exfoliate down to newer skin using a fine blade to remove old skin cells.   Although it is a very effective treatment, few people are aware of this technique and fewer practitioners perform it.   Dermaplaning requires medical equipment and specialized training to perform properly.

Despite the skill set needed to perform it, dermaplaning is a very simple, safe and effective treatment.  Nowadays, many medical estheticians and physicians choose dermaplaning as their method of choice for clinical exfoliation.   This technique also allows  superior product penetration when coupled with other medical-grade exfoliation procedures.  As an added bonus say “Good-bye” to facial fuzz and “Hello” to gorgeous makeup.

Want to improve texture, tone, pigmentation, hydration and fine lines all in one treatment?  Dermaplaning is outstanding by itself however at Rejuvenate Rx we use it principally as the first step in our rejuvenating treatment known as the SkinCeuticals MicroPeel.    Come in to try this premier anti-aging corrective skin care treatment (affectionately known as “the peel without any peeling.”) There is no downtime; your skin will not be red or irritated and the results are spectacular.

Consultations are complimentary.  Come in and see us or call (509)290-6149 to find out more.

Cute cheeks with VolumaTM at Rejuvenate Rx

Cute cheeks with VolumaTM at Rejuvenate Rx

Wrinkles and age spots aren’t the only problems as we age. There is another large part of the aging equation: Volume loss.  Volume loss in the cheeks causes our faces to flatten which causes the skin on our faces to migrate lower and look saggy.

Before Juvederm Voluma XC and 1 month post-treatment. A total of 3.5 ml was injected into the cheek area.

Enter VolumaTM from Allergan.  VolumaTM is the first and only FDA approved filler to add volume to the cheek area, mainly on the cheek bone.  VolumaTM gives you back lifted, youthful, cute cheeks for up to 2 years.   There is very little, if any recovery time and your results are instant.

We are happy to share with you more information over the phone or in complimentary office consultation.  Give us a call at (509)290-6149.

Are you angry?

Glabellar lines (also called frown lines) are vertical lines that appear between the eyebrows as we get older.  Over time, repeated muscle contraction combined with less skin elasticity results in those lines becoming visible even when we are not frowning.   As we age, muscles may also develop some residual tonicity (incomplete muscle relaxation) that makes the creases visible even when we are “relaxed.”

What to do about it?

Refraining from knitting your eyebrows is one technique for avoiding glabellar creases.  This may work for those of us who are able to employ this strategy.  I tend to knit my brows at the slightest need for concentration (epic fail on that one although I did try.)

Proper skin care, good hydration, sunglasses and healthy lifestyle choices may help decrease the appearance of the lines once they appear however there is no evidence to suggest that they are treatments for glabellar lines in and of themselves.

A neuromodulator such as Botoxtm is far and away the best treatment for glabellar creases.   These medications block nerve impulses that cause muscle contractions and allow the muscles to relax.  The overlying skin is then able to smooth out; improving or eliminating those glabellar creases.   A typical treatment with Botoxtm  for the glabellar area is 20 units for women and 30 units for men; but remember that the amount of Botoxtm  needed to achieve the desired result varies from person to person.

You should also know that Botoxtm  takes 3 days to take effect and 14 days before the full effect is reached;  therefore, you should always return to your injector after two weeks to determine if your results are optimal or if a little more medication is needed.   Once you are optimally treated, the effects of Botoxtm will generally last from 3-5 months, depending on how actively you contract your muscles and other factors such as exercise and metabolism.  You can plan for treatment 3-4 times a year as a guide.

“I have never met anyone who’s had Botoxtm  done well who didn’t want to do it again.”
