ARE YOU SHOWING OFF YOUR BARCODE?

October 26, 2012 / Category: Anti-Aging, Beauty Breakthroughs, Cosmetic Procedures

We have all seen women with those dreaded “smoker’s lines” around the mouth – those tell-tale signs of aging that are impossible to hide with any type of makeup – THE BARCODE!  So what are they, and how can we make them disappear?

Well, smoking and sun damage are the top two reasons for these dreaded lines, but aging causes thinning of the lips in most women, resulting in too much skin above those shrunken lips with no place to go except to causes pleats and folds.

While mineral based sunscreen is the best anti-aging product to prevent damage in the first place, once these lines have etched themselves in, it is time for more aggressive measures.

  • CO2RE fractional laser skin resurfacing will turn back the clock and erase the deep and shallow lines.
  • For the still present volume loss due to shrinkage of the underlying fat, injectable fillers restore a youthful fullness to this area.
  • The third component is to soften the puckering movement that continues to create lines with a small amount of Botox or Dysport.

The end result is a smooth, youthful mouth with no sign of that dreaded BARCODE!



Simple Steps to Improve Elasticity in The Skin

July 18, 2012 / Category: Anti-Aging, Beauty Breakthroughs, Cosmetic Procedures, Health News

As we age not only do we experience a loss of collagen in the skin but reduced skin elasticity too, causing wrinkles and sagging skin. Fortunately, there a few ways to improve elasticity so that you can maintain a more youthful appearance and keep your skin functioning at a younger age too.
With each passing year we lose collagen and skin elasticity in our face. This means wrinkles and sagging skin. While there’s no way to completely stop the clock, you can increase your skin’s elasticity for a lifted, firmer and younger looking face with a couple of proven methods. Maintain a more youthful appearance and keep your skin functioning at a younger age too.

First, let’s test your skin’s functional age to find out if its aging younger, older or the same rate as your biological age. Here’s what to  do. Lay your hand on a flat surface, palm down. Then pinch the skin on the back of your hand for five seconds. Let go and count how many seconds it takes for your skin to flatten back out. If it took one to two seconds your functional age is under 30; three to four seconds and it’s about 30 to 44; five to nine seconds and it’s about 45 to 50; and ten to 15 seconds it’s about 60 and so on.

TIME:            FUNCTIONAL AGE:

1 – 2 sec        Under 30
3 – 4 sec        30 – 44
5 – 9 sec        45 – 50
10 – 15 sec    60
35 – 55 sec    70
56 sec+        Over 70

There are cosmetic procedures that help with skin’s elasticity like dermal fillers which help stimulate collagen as well as lift and contour your features. Laser and other energy based treatments such as eMatrix Sublative Rejuvenation, Fractora Fractional Skin Resurfacing and CO2RE CO2 Fractional Skin Resurfacing (a newer, better version of Fraxel Repair) create significantly improved texture and firming. Fractora Firm and ReFirme/Sublime are non-invasive technologies to tighten the skin. Ingredient driven skin care such as our Tanne MD Medical Skin Care give you a twice a day at-home opportunity to nourish and hydrate your skin.
