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.
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.
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.
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.”
