Exfoliation is a great way to rejuvenate our skin. The key to skin rejuvenation – whether it is mechanical exfoliation, chemical exfoliation or microneedling – is to maintain the health of skin structures and stimulate cellular renewal. There are a variety of treatments and devices available and it’s important to know which one is right for you. Following are four of the most popular methods used today.
Hyper-pigmentation is when there is a darkening of the skin. Microneedling, using a needle pen, can help to reduce this hyper-pigmentation by breaking up the pigment below the skin surface. This collagen induction therapy (CID) another word for micro needling, can easily aid the skin without removing or damaging the epidermis. Several treatments are required along with some skin lightening products and your skin tone will be evened out.
Hyperpigmentation, aka brown spots, are one of the most common skin conditions we see in clients of all ages. It is best to offer targeted treatments for that specific concern but the first step is to try to figure out what is causing the hyperpigmentation. Once the root is determined we then decide what the right treatment protocol would be for that specific patients lifestyle, budget and timeframe. It is extremely important to teach the client not only how to correct uneven pigment but also how to prevent further development.

From the moment we wake up we are using harmful chemicals such as toothpaste, hand soap, shampoo, conditioner, body lotion, moisturizer, shaving cream, make up, perfume and deodorant. It is scary to think about how many harsh chemicals we are applying to our skin every day. On average, woman put around 500 chemicals on their body every day, and at least 60% of those chemicals get absorbed. That is close to 300 chemicals in your bloodstream each day!
It would be naive to believe that changing your nutrition is going to wipe out all your wrinkles or completely stop skin aging. I wish! But it is just as naive to think that you can eat (or neglect to eat) whatever you want without any effect on your skin. What you eat affects every organ in your body and your skin is no exception.
Hey, I need your advise on skin. Since I’m getting older I’m starting to get dark spots and I hate it! I have looked up all kinds of things on the internet but not sure if they are just trying to sell products or if they are being accurate. Any help/advise you can give me would be greatly appreciated.
As aging occurs, we lose collagen and elastin. While there is no way to stop the process of aging, we do know how they can be slowed down. Vitamins, anti-oxidants, anti-inflammatory ingredients, exfoliants, water, facials, injectables and facial lasers can help to ease the process.
