Microdermabrasion Delivers Instant Gratification
09-05-2018 : 9:00 am
Microdermabrasion offers instant gratification with little or no downtime. Your skin is immediately softer and smoother with a more even texture. Your skin care serums will penetrate more easily and your makeup will go on more smoothly.
Microdermabrasion stimulates blood flow, which increases the nutrition delivered to skin cells. This, in turn, improves cell production, which improves skin’s elasticity and texture.

Summer doesn’t officially start until June 21. But, here in Oklahoma, it’s felt like summer for several weeks now. Your skincare needs can change with the seasons.
I hope you’re wearing sunscreen year round but now that it’s warmer out you may need a water-resistant sunscreen for relaxing at the lake, sweating while working hard in the yard or exercising outdoors. Also, don’t forget to reapply every 2 hours or after swimming.

Spots are cute on puppies but not on your skin! I can help you get rid of those unwanted spots.
What are all these spots anyway?
Skin Tags– A skin tag is a small growth that usually occurs in areas of friction or where the skin creases such as the neck or underarm area. Skin tags are generally thought to be hereditary. Skin tags are harmless but can be annoying especially on the neck where shirt collars can rub and necklaces can get caught on them.
Benefits of a Chemical Peel

The season is changing and so is your skin. Fall is a great time to consider getting a professional chemical peel.
Exfoliation comes in all shapes and sizes. Scrubs, loofahs and pastes are all options but one modality whose results never let us down professionally is a chemical exfoliation, commonly known as a “peel”. Whether it’s lactic, mandelic or salicylic acid, or even a potent blended enzyme, a superficial chemical peel is a trusted approach for acne reduction, the minimization of fine lines or simply restoring a healthy glow.

Body Acne – Treatment and Prevention
07-28-2017 : 11:34 am
This is the season for swim suits and tank tops. This can be a frustrating and embarrassing time of the year for those suffering from body acne.
While body acne can be tricky to treat a few lifestyle changes and the right topical products can leave you with smooth blemish free skin. Many people shower only once a day but in order to effectively treat body acne you need a consistent routine of cleansing and applying topical products both morning and evening.
The most common areas for body acne are the chest and back. Another problem area for women is where the band of your bra rests, especially if you perspire a lot. The chest is usually treated more similar to the face while the back can typically handle stronger treatments both in office and at home. The products that cleared your facial acne will not always work to clear your body acne.
