Acne triggers are everywhere, here are a few that you may or may not know. #fridayfacts

1. Toothpaste with ingredients sodium lauryl sulfate and fluoride are acne triggers. Breakouts around the mouth clear quickly when switching to a SLS and fluoride free toothpaste.

2.Dryer sheets leave a coating on laundry that can cause irritation as clog pores.

3.Tap water contains irritants like chlorine and fluoride, which can lead to breakouts. Opt for a shower filter and filtered water to drink.

4.The overuse of harsh acne products can dry out the skin. Although the acne May subside at first, the skin is usually left damaged, flaking, red and 😡 angry. A skin that damaged is more prone to bacteria, fungus, and viruses. Leading to more acne!

5.Acne prone skin types often skip hydrating aka moisturizing and SPF. Acne prone skin needs hydration more than most skin types. One of the skins many functions is to regulate moisture levels. If it lacking hydration or moisture it will produce more oil to try and balance. The SPF prevents any further damage from UV exposure.

Profound encourages your body to recreate collagen and elastin...naturally! The results continue to improve over time.

Profound can give you the lifting and tightening you want with a SINGLE, non-surgical treatment. Yep, it IS that impressive 🤩

We’ve got 5 Simple Skin Care Tips for you today!

#1 HYDRATE HYDRATE HYDRATE 💦 : We know you hear it all the time but it’s true! More water means plumper, more elastic skin. Keep that water bottle handy!

#2 SLEEP LIKE A PRINCESS 👑:
Silk's smoothness means it’s less apt to absorb moisture from skin keeping skin nice and hydrated without zapping it of valuable moisture. Also, a smooth surface means less tugging on skin than with a traditional cotton pillowcase. Studies show that friction from tossing and turning causes creases in the skin, but a silky smooth surface can reduce that effect in the long run.

#3 BRUSH YOUR TEETH FIRST 🦷: you You should always brush your teeth before you wash your face. Not only can certain ingredients in toothpaste cause irritation, dryness and even burning, but the bacteria from your mouth in the dribbled-out toothpaste can affect the skin.

#4 ICE COLD ❄️:
While the underlying cause of blemishes and cystic acne is bacteria, a dose of chill can help relieve pain and decrease inflammation by constricting the blood vessels.

#5 CLEAN YOUR PHONES 📱:
Cell phones, glasses and headphones build up with dirt, oil, sweat and bacteria from your face, hair and hands, so it's crucial to wipe them down regularly with alcohol or a disinfectant that won't degrade the material.

Happy #WisdomWednesday! Today we are talking about #dermalfillers

Did you know that many visible signs of aging can be traced back to volume loss? As facial tissues thin out, lines become etched around the nose and mouth and cheeks look a little hollow.

While dermal fillers are casually known as “wrinkle fillers,” they can do MUCH more than just smooth out wrinkles or folds...although they are excellent at this too!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Here are a few of the common issues dermal fillers can help address:
* Smooth out lines around nose and mouth (a.k.a. marionette lines, smile lines, and parentheses)
* Enhance & restore volume to sunken cheeks or temples
* Diminish vertical lip lines
* Plump & enhance the lips
* Smooth out a chin crease
* Improve symmetry among facial features

If you’re interested in “plumping up the volume” just give us a ring!

This is why you need to switch up your skincare routine as the seasons change. Set aside those winter skincare habits and create a new spring skincare routine with the right skincare products and techniques.

Come in and we’ll work with you to create a skincare program that works for you 🙌🏻

Let’s talk Injectables for this #wisdomwednesday!

Many people shy away from Botox because they may feel nervous about having cosmetic work done. We also think that we don’t have wrinkles yet, so why worry? The fact is that by the time deep set wrinkles occur, the ideal time-frame for Botox treatments has already passed. The time to start is usually our early to mid-30’s and this allows you to avoid ever having wrinkles in the first place!

As for fillers such as Juvederm, much of current cosmetic technique is moving towards a suppler, youthful appearance. Fillers can be injected into the lips, “tear troughs” or nasolabial fold areas to fill out the wrinkles which are seen when you are not in animation. This results in a rejuvenated appearance which lasts approximately 12 months.

Let’s talk about #wrinkles today. There are two main types of wrinkles—dynamic and static.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Dynamic wrinkles develop over time when you use your muscles to form facial expressions such as smiles 😁 and frowns ☹️.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Static wrinkles, by contrast, are there all the time because of the decrease in collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid 📉 Dynamic wrinkles typically turn into static wrinkles if not treated 😳.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We have an entire arsenal of treatments available (from Neurotoxins 💉 like Botox, RF microneedling like Profound to chemical peels...to just name a few) that help you fight all kinds of wrinkles and folds in your skin! You CAN age on your own terms 💪🏻

Ok sometimes you just have to pinch yourself. Today, after what was an incredibly smooth day of surgery my amazing assistant Quiana Robinson surprised me with flowers, pizza and my favorite Moscato.

Quiana made my cry out of being so touched by this acknowledgement. I want you to know that she is a hero. She doesn’t get awards for her amazing parenting, for her steadfast work ethic, for her kind compassionate stand for our patients... but she should. Being surrounded by strong women has been the great privilege of my life- and this is a strong woman.

Thank you, Quiana, and my entire team♥️♥️♥️

[07/09/20]   We are so excited to welcome you back.

In order to better serve you, we have implemented several enhanced measures for infection control and the utmost safety.

Patients are spread out as much as possible, and appointments staggered.

When scheduling we will be sending you a COVID screening questionnaire, which is updated the day of your appointment.

Temperature screenings, and peroxide rinses are done to further protect our staff, and therefore protect you.

We have eased our cancellation policies, such that if you are unwell or even just apprehensive, you can reschedule without fear of cancellation fees.

We take COVID extremely seriously and truly appreciate your patronage of our practice during this challenging time.

I was watching the Olympic channel and the vault Keri Strug landed on an injured ankle. I am reminded that triumph is possible under even the most dire circumstances.

I look forward to being on this journey with you all as we move forward. Health and well being to you all!
