  Throw Acne And Skin Imperfections Out The Window This September!

With the new school year now officially upon us, looking your best has never been more important. And what's arguably the number one thing that can make or break our appearance? Our skin of course. 

Over the years we start to see changes in our skin such as pigmentation, skin laxity, fine lines and wrinkles, and loss of volume. The best fight against the aging process is to be preventative. Having a smooth and glowing skin can make you look healthier and eventually more attractive. What if you're dealing with blackheads or even an acne breakout? Then your skin's condition will be far from optimal and that's where our exclusive and highly effective skin care products and regimes come into play!

Why Medical-Grade Skin Care Products?

Aside from protecting our skin from environmental damage and the damaging effects of UV rays, we want to accelerate the skin cell turnover to always be building healthy new cells, collagen, and elastin. To do this, we recommend using a pharmaceutical grade antioxidant, physical sun block, retinols, peptides, and growth factors.

There is science behind medical grade products that doctors and medical providers stand behind. With tested and proven medical grade ingredients as well as efficacy and delivery systems to the skin, medical grade products get beautiful skin results. Everyone’s skin is different, and our skin is always changing with age and hormones. 

Although all skin care is supposed to provide adequate results and cleansing, medical-grade products are undoubtedly superior.

The first step to a natural path of treating fine lines & skin texture is to be preventative.
A good homecare regimen is paramount whenever we are looking at taking care of the skin. There are plenty of products that are extremely effective without being harsh or breaking down the skin too much. Growth Factors and biostimulating products work with the skin's natural functions, improving them and encouraging the skin to act younger without traumatizing it. Excess dead skin can prevent proper product absorption making lines much more noticeable or making the skin look “dull” & “tired”. Using exfoliating products regularly at home is great. Combining homecare with regular exfoliating and anti-aging facial treatments, like microdermabrasion, dermaplaning and Facial Infusion every 4 to 6 weeks will remove dead skin, stimulate collagen and allow for better product penetration, keeping your skin looking fresh.

Is my skin care regimen right for me?
We recommend consulting with a medical esthetician to analyze your skin and consult about specific skin care concerns. At the consultation, we can recommend the best regimen to improve overall skin tone and texture, as well as prevent further damage. As our skin changes, so do our skin care needs, so it's good to see an esthetician regularly to update our skin care routine when needed.

What else can I do to maintain youthful skin?
Aside from having the right skin care products at home, there are multiple benefits to having regular facial skin care treatments.  Regular facials and face massages boost cell regeneration and promote collagen development by increasing blood circulation. We use various methods, products, and technology that help improve your skin texture.  For example, a regular deep exfoliation will help stimulate collagen production, allow products to penetrate deeper, and promote new and healthy skin cells, resulting in glowing fresh skin. With acne prone individuals, the skin needs to purge the waste that accumulates on a regular basis to improve and prevent breakouts. A facial is best so your esthetician can open the pores with steam and products for effective extractions. A good acid peel can also help reduce acne and the resulting scars.

While treatments we do provide amazing results, to maintains and enhance these results it is important you are using proper skin care for your unique skin, there is no “one fits all” skin care regimen. At FAC we bring on only the best products that are scientifically proven to provide great results, and enhance results post treatments.

Take Some YOU Time, Moms
Feeling like you need a pick me up? The kids are back in school, now its time to take a moment to put yourself first and set aside some time for self care. After a summer filled of taking care of others, take some time to pamper yourself, and get yourself feeling refreshed and rejuvenated in time for the holidays!

Get your pre-baby body back

The effects of nursing children and the fluctuation in breast size during and after pregnancy can cause lasting changes in the shape and volume of a woman’s breasts.  The weight gain and skin stretching associated with one or more pregnancies can also have permanent effects on the appearance of the abdomen.  Fat deposits in the hips and thighs, stretch marks in the lower abdomen, and loosening of the abdominal muscles characterize the typical effects of pregnancy on a woman’s body.  The changes that are made as the result of pregnancy are often structural.  And these structural changes will not be repaired by weight loss alone or any amount of exercise. 

What is a “Mommy Makeover”?

A “Mommy makeover”, is a procedure to reshape and firm up the breasts and tummy creates dramatic changes.  The changes typically seen are not subtle. It is truly dramatic and can be life changing. Often a mommy makeover includes liposuction, tummy tuck, breast augmentation and lift.

Get rid of sagging skin in your mid-face

Jowls are a common concern that is produced by loss of skin elasticity and facial volume. Gravity is relentlessly pulling down on our skin and when the underlying structure starts to change, we see the sagging of skin in the mid face that we call jowls. 

As illustrated in the diagram the loss of bone and fat beneath the skin is what produces much of what we associate with an aged appearance.  Notice the change in the diagram and how the support structure within the face changes. 

The extended microlift, in comparison to a Facelift, is for those patients requiring less treatment, especially in the neck, to achieve rejuvenation. Microlift can be performed in conjunction with a necklift. This will resolve mild sagging skin to treat jowls and turkey neck.

Thermage treatments can provide a nice improvement for mild to moderate jowls with absolutely no downtime.  The treatment uses radio frequency energy to stimulate the skin producing tightening and contraction over several months resulting in a gradual improvement of jowls. 

Say goodbye to fine lines, wrinkles and hello to restored facial contours
Noticing more wrinkles and fine lines? Do your eyes look tired and hollow? 

BOTOX® and dermal fillers are injectable treatments that address lines and wrinkles, as well as the loss of facial volume. They are also the top two minimally invasive cosmetic treatments performed each year, according to statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons BOTOX targets dynamic lines and wrinkles, such as those on the forehead and frown lines. These wrinkles are caused by muscle movement. Botox goes into the muscle and relaxes it, minimizing the appearance of these lines. Fall treatments are perfect to have you looking your best for the holidays.

Although each patient is unique generally certain types of fillers are used in specific areas:

Juvederm – folds and creases around the mouth

Voluma – midface contour restoration

Volbella – superficial lines and wrinkles or delicate areas

Remove Summer Sun Damage

Despite our best efforts, we can all spend a little too much time in the sun, especially during the summer in southern California. That sun exposure can cause discoloration in the skin, breaking down of collagen and elastin and is the leading cause of premature aging. Wearing a good form of sun protection whether it's clothing or sunblock is very important, but it still doesn’t completely eliminate UV radiation from penetrating the skin, and that cumulative build up of damage will manifest itself, sometimes years later. At Facial Aesthetic Concepts we offer a range of treatments and products that work to reverse and repair damage caused by UV radiation.

Once pigment is produced in the skin the only way to eliminate it is by removing the pigmented cells. We can do this by exfoliating with home products like acids and retinols or with stronger chemical peels, light therapies (IPL) and lasers (Fractional CO2). The deeper the pigment is, the more exfoliation or resurfacing you have to do to get it all off. The problem with long term sun damage and melasma is that the pigment is very deep, and the melanocytes are primed to just keep over producing pigment in that area. So essentially if all you’re doing is exfoliating; you are fighting a losing battle.
