The Next BIG Thing! Micro-Needling

by By Friends at Fresh Start on 09/08/14

Well, Ladies if you are looking for the next BIG Thing in the world of esthetics, search no longer.  It is here!  Consider fractional rejuvenation for a fraction of the cost without the pain, discomfort and downtime of an ablative fractional laser.  I am talking about the wonders of Micro-Needling! The automated micro-needling device known as the Micropen or Dermapen is gaining in popularity very quickly across the country.

The MicroPen can improve and reinvigorate damaged and aging skin by harnessing the mechanism associated with the body’s natural wound healing processes.

 

The MicroPen automated micro-needling device is the most effective, reliable instrument currently available for performing Percutaneous Collagen Induction Therapy (PCIT). This elegant tool can be used for the successful treatment of a variety of indications, such as skin tightening, wrinkle reduction, scars and stretch marks reductions.

MicroPen creates a series of predictable, controlled epidermal and dermal micro-injuries, thereby stimulating the body's immune response to produce new collagen and elastin. MicroPen is used in combination with Hyaluronic Acid peptides gel to hydrate and re-epithelialize the skin. The human body has a natural repair process that reacts to injury. The MicroPen works with the bodies own natural rejuvenation processes by initiating this response with each treatment.  

Why we LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Vitamin C

by By Friends at Fresh Start on 08/13/14

Vitamin C  is a prime skin-care ingredient in tons of beauty creams. This vitamin aids in the body's production of collagen, a protein that forms the basic structure of your skin (source: Discovery Health). Collagen breakdown, which starts speeding up significantly around t.

Consuming extra vitamin C in foods like oranges, grapefruits, Acerola cherries (a single Acerola has 100 % of your vitamin C for the day),  and tomatoes can help tighten the skin and prevent wrinkles.  Vitamin C also fights inflammation, and its antioxidant properties can neutralize the free radicals (highly reactive oxygen molecules) that damage cells and prematurely age your face. he age of 35, can leave your skin saggy

BEWARE of 'Sunglasses' Called 'Eyeware' or 'Sunware'

by By Friends at Fresh Start on 07/07/14

If you purchase a pair of sunglasses, they must offer some level of UV protection. This level could vary, however, which is why it's best to look for those that specify a certain level, such as UV 400 or 100 percent UV absorption. Because the FDA only regulates whether companies adhere to the labeling, if your sunglasses claim to be "100 percent UV protected," they must live up to that claim. That said, there are other types of glasses on the market that are marketed as sunglasses but are actually called: *Sun blockers  *Polarized glasses  *Eyeware  *Sunware. In these cases, they may offer no UV protection at all, yet would still be allowed under the FDA rules because they're not technically called 'sunglasses.' There are also so-called 'cosmetic' sunglasses.

Price is not an indicator of quality sun protection. CBS News actually did a study comparing cheap sunglasses ($5 a pair) to high-end brands like Versace ($200 a pair). All 31 pairs carried claims that they offered excellent UV protection… and all but one (a cheap pair) actually did. In other words, if your sunglasses claim to offer good UV protection, they probably do. But, if you're uncertain, take them in to an eye center. Most will test the UV protection level of your sunglasses for free, and it takes less than 30 seconds to do so.

What SPF should I use?

by By Friends at Fresh Start on 05/31/14

Sunblock protects your skin by absorbing and/or reflecting UVA and UVB radiation. All sunblocks have a Sun Protection Factor (SPF) rating. The SPF rating indicates how long a sunscreen remains effective on the skin. A user can determine how long their sunblock will be effective by multiplying the SPF factor by the length of time it takes for him or her to suffer a burn without sunscreen.

 

For instance, if you normally develop sunburn in 10 minutes without wearing a sunscreen, a sunscreen with an SPF of 15 will protect you for 150 minutes (10 minutes multiplied by the SPF of 15). Although sunscreen use helps minimize sun damage, no sunscreen completely blocks all wavelengths of UV light. The American Association of Dermatology (AAD) recommends that a "broad spectrum" sunblock with an SPF of at least 15 and no more than SPF 50. We recommend sunblocks with SPF of at least 30 with frequent reapplication.

HOW SUNLIGHT DAMAGES EYES

by By Friends at Fresh Start on 05/01/14

by Rene S. Rodriguez-Sains, MD










For most of us, the eyes are the most cherished of our senses. Yet we potentially expose them to danger simply by going outside. Over time, the sun’s rays can seriously damage the eyes and surrounding skin, sometimes leading to vision loss and conditions from cataracts and macular degeneration to eye and eyelid cancers. However, simple daily protective strategies will help keep our eyes and the sensitive skin around them healthy. 

Certain types of light from the sun can wreak havoc:

Ultraviolet A and Ultraviolet B light: Ultraviolet A (UVA) and ultraviolet B (UVB), powerful, invisible rays with wavelengths shorter than visible light, are the most dangerous parts of sunlight. They can cause cataracts, eyelid cancers and other skin cancers,1,2 and are believed to play a part in macular degeneration, a major cause of vision loss for people over age 60.3 In addition, UV rays can prematurely wrinkle and age the skin around the eyes.

High-Energy Visible Light (HEV light)/Blue Light: HEV light – high-energy visible light in the violet/blue spectrum is a potential contributor to cataracts and other serious eye maladies.1,2 Blue light can damage the retina over time, leading to macular degeneration. The retina is the membrane where images are formed and transmitted to the brain. The macula, the region of sharpest vision located near the center of the retina, is the most likely area to be damaged.

Caring For Your Skin

It is so important to take care of yourself. Of course, that can be a multi-faceted task. From diet to exercise, nutrition and skincare. Your skin is actually one of the main systems of your body and is the most vulnerable and thus needs the most TLC. When you look in the mirror, as Steven Tyler has said in one of his songs “all the lines in my face getting clearer”. You may consider wrinkle reduction and skin tightening in our Boston area office. Another option is to get a laser facial or photofacial to rejuvenate your skin and promote collagen growth. As we age the consequences of many years of sun exposure can come back to haunt us. Age spots, brown spots and freckles can begin to arrive out of nowhere. The good news is that you CAN remove brown spots in our Boston area office quite effectively through the wonders of laser therapy. Do you have an old tattoo from the days of your youth that is just bugging you? Well, tattoo removal around Boston is big and we can get that tattoo off in no time. But, it will take a commitment for a few months. However, it is well worth the investment. It only took one night to get that tattoo on, but it cannot be removed in one night. SO sorry! It will take several treatments as your unwanted tattoo slowly fades. And of course in caring for your skin you must stay hydrated. Water is your best friend! Drink early and often throughout each and every day!
