The Fresh Face of 2013 - Non-Surgical Options for a Brand New You!

Your face is capable of producing over 5,000 facial expressions! With new advances in non-surgical procedures, you now have one more reason to smile.

In 2011, 12.2 MILLION minimally invasive cosmetic procedures were performed in the US. 95% of these were performed on the face. 

As we age...

  • Zits, bumps and redness — sadly, they don't disappear with high school graduation. 50% of women in their twenties suffer from acne
  • Since the skin is so delicate, by the time women are in their 30s they begin to experience undereye bags.
  • Most sun damage to our skin occurs before our 20, but the effects manifest into sunspots by our 40s
  • Small muscle contractions over a lifetime can result in crow’s feet and laugh lines in our 50s
The “S” Factors
  • Sun damage - Can cause the skin to lose elasticity, develop cancerous and noncancerous growths, change pigment, and thicken.
  • Smoking - Nicotine causes narrowing of the blood vessels, reducing blood circulation and nutrients to your skin, and the smoke can cause dullness and dehydration.
  • Sugar - Weakens the good collagen in your skin, leaving it less supple and more vulnerable to sun damage.
  • Sleeping with Makeup - Wash up before you drift o! Makeup can combine with skin oil overnight to produce clogged pores and oxygen-starved skin.
Skin Care Fact or Fiction?
  • It’s too late to start using sunscreen.
    • FICTION: It’s never too late to protect your skin from the sun. Skin can also repair itself, given the opportunity, but it can take several years.
  • You are what you eat.
    • FACT: Your skin will thank your for having a healthy and well balanced diet. Yellow and green vegetables and food containing vitamin C keep your skin younger-looking.
  • Free radicals cause wrinkling.
    • FACT: Toxins and pollutants in the air damage your skin cells during oxidation making it difficult for the body to produce new healthy skin cells
  • You can shrink your pores.
    • FICTION: The size of your pores is determined by genetics. They can often look overly enlarged due to keratin or bacteria.
Skin Care products account for 31% of the global cosmetics industry. In most cases, creams and lotions alone won’t stop your aging skin from looking tired.
