Trim your double chin — without surgery!
We’re excited to announce our newest product from Allergan (the company that brought us BotoxTM)! FDA-approved KybellaTM is your fat-busting, non-surgical answer to a double chin, and we’re thrilled to offer it to you. This is a great treatment for men and women!
Dr. Gwyn administers KybellaTM with a series of small injections into the fat tissue in the submental area under your chin. The active ingredient in KybellaTM is deoxycholic acid, which your body produces naturally to absorb fat. When injected directly into submental fat, the medication destroys the fat cells, and leaves all your other cells healthy and intact. The recommended treatment with KybellaTM occurs in two appointments; six weeks apart. The number of treatments will depend on the amount of submental fullness.
To learn more about this exciting new treatment (and snag special pricing), join us at our “ChinUp with KybellaTM” event on Thursday, March 24th, from 5:00-6:30 at Rejuvenate Rx. Meet the experts, ask questions, win prizes and enjoy delicious treats and refreshments.
As always, you can also schedule your complimentary consultation, just call us: (509) 290-6149.
Warm temperatures and longer days keep your mood light but acne flares can become an issue in the summertime.
Higher temperatures can increase facial oil production which can lead to clogged pores; contributing to black heads and breakouts. Sweating also contributes to inflammation which can worsen acne.
A few simple changes to your skin regimen can help control summer skin problems.
1) Gentle yet diligent–Wash your face with a non-drying foaming or lotion cleanser twice a day. Avoid harsh soaps and toners which can dry out the superficial skin layers and stimulate more oil production. You may want to let your cleanser set on your skin for a minute or two prior to rinsing.
2) Unplug—a quality clay mask a few times a week is great for absorbing oil and clearing pores.
3) Go lightly or skip—a lighter moisturizer or hydrating gel is usually enough to keep your skin happy. Many skip moisturizers altogether in the summer. Drinking plenty of water will help keep your skin plump and soft.
4) Protect—Use a gentle facial sunscreen daily. Choose a product with an SPF of at least 30. Try a tinted mineral sunscreen. Mineral sunscreens are great because they reflect UV radiation rather than absorbing the rays and causing heat damage to the skin.
5) Seek guidance—Come see us at Rejuvenate Rx for a little help if your acne continues to bother.
Enjoy the rest of your summer!

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.”

Dr. Gwyn is looking forward to her “night at The Calm”. She’s ready to share some skincare secrets, tips, and plenty of joy.
Join us: April 11, 2013 @ 6:30… feel free to arrive when you are able, and join the conversation.
In first person, from Dr. Gwyn:
The earlier we start caring for our skin properly, the better. Skin care isn’t something you can take for granted. Many of us go along with our daily routine, then wake up one day and look in the mirror and say “wow” I really need to do something. That level of “awakening” varies from one person to another and affects individuals differently at various ages. Fortunately there are measures we can take to improve our skin, regardless of age.
I love being in a relaxed and fun environment where we can share knowledge and experiences. Sharing demonstrations always evokes such positive and enthusiastic responses, like “I didn’t know you could do that!”
When I’m at the Calm I feel at home with friends. It’s a warm, inclusive atmosphere that we have always enjoyed. It provides a safe space where it’s okay to explore and ask questions. And we can provide the answers.
Skin Care For Our Region’s Winter Weather… and a special opportunity for Botox.
You need to take care of your skin if you want to “age gracefully” or not at all, during the winter months. Men actually feel the winter assault on their skin more than women. Men are less likely to apply moisturizers and use harsher soaps on their skin. Plus, shaving dehydrates your skin. So men, you need to take a cue from the women in your life. Moisturize. Moisturize. Moisturize. (Some other at home remedies are below.)
Dr. Gwyn Blattau-Gay with Rejuvenate Rx says, “Cooler temperatures slow the ability of the skin’s natural substances to spread over the skin’s surface in time to adequately protect the cells from dehydration. Low humidity pulls the moisture out of unprotected skin.”
To fight those wrinkles that come during the “winter phase” of your life, Rejuvenate Rx is offering a special opportunity so you can give Botox a try. Right now, you can buy Botox in the clinic for $9 a unit. For real! (Normally, it’s $12 a unit.) Botox is extremely cost effective in smoothing those frown lines. In general, lines between the brows take about 20 units, the forehead about 24 units, and those crows feet take 12-20 units. Thanks to a special offer from Rejuvenate’s vendor, you’ll reap the benefits. … and yes, more men are embracing Botox.
This is what you can expect when you visit a skin care clinic, like Rejuvenate Rx (of course!):
→ Assessment and diagnosis from Dr. Gwyn
→ Medical-grade skin care products
→ Physician-led education, prevention, treatment
→ Warm welcome, personalized care, and confidence
→ Quick fixes for that pre-event doozy of a pimple or tired skin
Here are some at-home remedies to sooth and replenish your skin:
→ Squeeze out the “jelly” from the leaves of an aloe plant, apply to skin: plants improve the air in your house, looks groovy, great for skin irritations
→ Cooled green tea bags on the eyes: decreases puffiness around the eyes
→ Lather on body lotion that contains oatmeal extract: soothes dry & flaky skin
