The treatment:

Laser resurfacing uses ablative lasers to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and scars, even pigmentation, tighten skin and remove lesions. Erbium laser skin resurfacing with Lutronic’s Action II is the treatment of choice for clients who want to achieve dramatic improvement in the appearance of their skin. This treatment successfully removes superficial lines to moderately deep wrinkles with less pain, fewer side-effects, and a more rapid recovery than more aggressive treatments.

The laser precisely ablates the outermost layer of the skin to reveal the underlying skin that is smoother and younger looking. The procedure also activates collagen to promote further tightening of the skin. Our Talent will precisely remove the necessary layers of skin to eliminate or reduce superficial to moderately deep lines and wrinkles.

The benefits :

  • Resurfacing with ablative lasers is considered one of the gold standard methods for facial rejuvenation.
  • It can promote the improvement of facial wrinkles, skin pigmentation, and skin texture.
  • The usual treatment delivers short downtime and few side effects.
  • It is possible to have significant improvement of the facial photodamaged skin after just one session.
  • Erbium laser skin resurfacing has been shown to stimulate the production of collagen, which further smoothens and tightens the skin.

Erbium laser skin resurfacing has been found safe and effective for the treatment of fine lines and moderate wrinkles. Clients who have previously had laser skin resurfacing can also enhance their look and improve their self-confidence now find themselves with greatly improved, smoother, and younger-looking skin.

More Information

Using Spectra Laser Toning to Manage Melasma

Melasma is a skin condition that primarily affects women and is characterised by dense freckling, odd swaths of tan, or blotches that are caused by a local overabundance of melanocyte – a type of pigmentation cell. Although it can arise spontaneously, melasma can also be brought on by pregnancy or sun exposure.

Regardless of why it emerges, however, melasma can be a source of discomfort, anxiety, and self-consciousness. Consequently, many affected individuals look to find ways to manage their melasma. This is easier said than done since melanocytes live on multiple layers of skin. Surface-level treatments like microdermabrasion can’t reach them and some laser treatments can actually make melasma worse by provoking the melanocytes into producing excess pigmentation.

This is where the Spectra Laser Toning comes in. Laser toning is a unique treatment for melasma and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation as it uses the laser energy to reduce visible pigmentation by breaking down melanin molecules naturally, allowing your immune system to remove them.

Face with melasma before and after

Melasma Management

1. Avoid triggers

Sun exposure can trigger melasma because melanocytes (pigment-producing cells) in the skin are responsible for producing melanin (pigment) and are stimulated by UV rays from the sun. Darker skin individuals have more active melanocytes and so produce more pigment than people with light skin. Melanin production increases when stimulated by sun exposure. The main reason for melasma returning after it has faded is sun exposure; even small amounts can trigger melasma. For this reason it is very important to use a broad spectrum (protects from UVA and UVB rays) and has a SPF (sun protection factor) of 15 or more.

2. Melasma treatments

Melasma sometimes resolves or fades on its own, especially after pregnancy or discontinuing birth control pills. If, however, you have persistent melasma we offer various treatments to manage it:

  • Skin Care Products (take home & in-clinic treatments)
  • Chemical Peels
  • Spectra Laser Toning

It may take several months for improvement to occur so it is important to follow up with our skin care staff and to follow their recommendations in order to maximize the benefit from melasma treatment. SKYN® offer a wide range of melasma treatments to help with this condition. In addition, our experienced Talent can recommend quality cosmetics that will not trigger melasma.

The Benefits of Laser Toning

The key to Spectra laser toning lies in a carbon facial mask. The mask allows the carbon to seep into your pores and the laser heats it up, resulting in a tiny explosion that dislodges debris and dead skin. Don’t worry, though, it’s not a painful treatment. In fact, not only is the Spectra laser toning painless, it’s downtime-free. You can come in for your session, go home after, and enjoy your skin to its fullest without any follow-up medication, downtime, or recovery period.

The reason that this treatment can affect melasma is that the darkened patches are due to clusters of melanocytes. When it comes to cells, few things are better at breaking up clumps than precise laser application combined with concussive force. As the carbon “pops” and the laser passes over, the melanocytes loosen and drift apart to become more evenly spaced and naturally disposed of.

Laser Toning for Radiant Skin

Laser toning has other key benefits, in addition to helping manage your melasma. The treatment can provide glowing, youthful skin, reduce acne scars, improve skin texture, reduce fine wrinkles, and more. These are long-lasting, ensuring you can get maximum enjoyment from your rejuvenated face.

SKYN® is a pioneer in the latest technology and practices for treating various skin conditions. Our Spectra Peel toning laser is just one tool dedicated to helping you get the clear, beautiful skin you deserve. Contact us to book a complimentary consultation today, our skin experts are more than happy to answer any queries you may have.

More about Spectra XT

Spectra XT by Lutronic is a revolutionary laser device that we use at SKYN®, here in Perth. It uses a well-known laser medium called Nd:YAG and uses it in diverse ways to treat both brown and red discolouration in the skin. The energy of the laser can be delivered quickly to address tattoos, pigmentation, sun spots, or melasma, or the energy slowed to treat shrink pores, tone skin, and fight acne in a procedure called “laser toning.” The Spectra is also used for our famous Hollywood Laser Peel and can help with both acne and skin tone, allowing for pore reduction and collagen formation.

Aesthetic treatments for all ages: The best fillers or laser from your 20s to 60s

What you can do to keep looking your best, regardless of your age.

In your 20’s

This is the time to start a skincare regimen with effective results. Look for products that contain high antioxidants, peptides, retinol, and use them with a daily sunscreen of at least SPF 30 to prevent further sun damage.

Gentle laser treatments, like Clear + Brilliant, are great for young skin.

These lasers address pigmentation and increasing skin porosity, so you get the most from your products.

Collagen-boosting treatments like microneedling will also make a long term difference making the skin healthier and more resilient and looking extra plump and glowy.

In your 30’S

The first signs of ageing will appear unexpectedly and often around the eyes, forehead, and mouth/lip area.

To maintain your look I would recommend procedures like:-

Microneedling – to improve the overall tone, minimise sunspots, and promote collagen production for healthy, bright and smooth skin.

Chemical peels – to brighten skintone, increase skin tightening and improve the overall skin tone and texture.

Wrinkle Relaxers – to treat fine lines and proactively prevent the formation of deeper lines by limiting the muscle movements that cause wrinkles.

Treatments like laser resurfacing can effectively combat the early signs of skin sagging and laxity.

In your 40’s

Due to a decrease in collagen production and other natural structural elements, you will notice a loss of volume and reduced elasticity in the face.

Since cell turnover also slows down in your 40’s, your skin may also begin to lose some of its natural glow, resulting in a duller complexion.

Treatments to look for:-

Wrinkle Relaxers, to reduce lines and give a smoother look.

Dermal fillers can minimise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and counteract the visible signs of volume loss by adding contour to the face to recreate the fuller look of younger skin.

Radio Frequency to counteract the loss of skin’s natural structure and stimulates the skin’s production of collagen and elastin, and can be administered on the face and body.

While gentle lasers work well in your 20’s, more aggressive laser treatments like laser resurfacing are more effective in your 40’s for improving the tone of skin and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

In your 50’s

When we reach our 50’s we continue to see loss of volume in the face and skin laxity becomes more pronounced.

As the face begins to sag overall, jowls can appear with the falling of the jawline and cheeks.

Lines can start to appear around the lips and we tend to lose lip volume.

Sun exposure and smoking can speed up the development of lines so make sure you are wearing high factor sunscreen.

Treatments to consider in your 50’s:-

Volumising dermal fillers, especially in the mid-face/cheek area to correct volume loss and lift the jowls.

Wrinkle Relaxers for the treatment of lines and wrinkles in the face and neck.

Collagen stimulators not only corrects wrinkles and folds but also stimulates your own collagen production to really treat the underlying causes of facial ageing.

The effects are gradual and longer-lasting giving you a natural youthful appearance.

Thread lifting. A ‘non-surgical’ face and neck lift treatment using sutures such as Silhouette Soft to lift and tighten the skin by stimulating new collagen production, reducing wrinkles, tightening pores and creating volume.

Erbium resurfacing lasers: These more aggressive lasers can combat the increasing signs of sun damage and improve overall skin texture.

Radio Frequency, a non-invasive procedure to tighten and lift the skin on the face and neck, making it a good alternative to a traditional facelift. It relies on Radio Frquency to deliver its collagen-boosting treatment resulting in tighter, smoother and more lifted skin.

In your 60’s

Many women will choose surgical procedures (blepharoplasty, facelift, necklift) to address age-related concerns and bring more youthful contours back to the face, but you can also restore volume to your face with a variety of nonsurgical treatments.

Wrinkle Relaxers. The aim is to soften the lines helping look fresher and rested. Anti-wrinkle injections can be also used to treat upper lip lines and to prevent the mouth corners from downturning.

Dermal fillers to replace the volume that has been lost. Volume loss causes marionette lines to form, the cheeks to flatten and for you to develop nasolabialfolds.

We aim to correct this volume loss and revert the shape of the face towards the inverted triangle that was present in your younger years.

Collagen stimulators to stimulate the formation of your own collagen for subtle, but noticeable results.

It is injected deep in the dermal layer to reinforce your skin’s structure and to restore fullness and face contours.

Thread lift (non-surgical facelift). Minimally invasive treatment to redefine facial contours and combat sagging skin with immediate results.

If you aren’t a candidate for facelift surgery, you can still undergo a facial rejuvenation procedure using a skin resurfacing treatment that can smooth out lines and wrinkles, and also improve the texture and tone of your skin.

Is injectable skincare the future of cosmetics? Rise of skin boosters explained

As consumers become more savvy with their shopping and competition among cosmetics giants rages, many are looking out for the next big thing when it comes to their complexions.

While injectables such as wrinkle relaxers and dermal fillers are increasingly commonplace, the likes of skin boosters remain shrouded in mystery for the most part.

The concept is simple – rather than slathering on hydrating ingredients and vitamins via a cream, an aesthetician injects them for superior penetration and lasting effects.

Daily Star Online spoke to Dr Pamela Benito about the rise of injectable skincare and its myriad of benefits.

“The injections are a combination of minerals, vitamins, antioxidants and a little bit of hyaluronic acid, but the particles of the hyaluronic acid are very small,” she explained.

“It’s not a filler, it’s more to hydrate and plump the skin and can also help with pigmentation. The formula boosts collagen production, helps with fine lines and hydration – plus the vitamins give you that glow, making the skin radiant from within,” she continued.

“It’s a great option for people who aren’t ready for wrinkle relaxers and dermal fillers but are still seeking rejuvenation. It’s suitable for younger people too, because minimising pores and improving texture is something everyone is after.”

Dr Pam recommends a course of three treatments for best results, spaced between three weeks to a month apart.

Results last up to nine months and then can be maintained with a top up every nine months, rather than another course of three.

Skin boosters can be used alongside the likes of wrinkle relaxers and dermal fillers but should be carried out two weeks apart from other injectables.

The Review

I’ve always considered myself to be something of a skincare aficionado, but skin boosters were definitely a step into the unknown.

Still, the process was a speedy one, with around a dozen shallow injections spread across my forehead, cheeks and chin within 15 minutes.

I was offered numbing cream upon arrival, but opted to forego it in order to get the grips with the level of discomfort that the procedure could entail.

Fortunately, there was very little pain involved, and while no injection is particularly pleasant, these never amounted to more than the sensation of a small scratch.

This was in part was helped by Dr Pam’s technique of massaging the area just before the insertion of the needle to relax the muscles.

However, Dr Pam did explain that there can be a higher level of discomfort with shallow injections compared to the deeper ones required for wrinkle relaxers and fillers because they sit closer to nerve endings.

Skinboosters

NON-INVASIVE: Skin boosters require no downtime

Nonetheless, given how non-invasive the treatment is, I was free to walk out of the clinic and do as I pleased, although was advised to avoid excessive exercise or alcohol to reduce the chances of bruising.

Having followed the advice, I suffered only one small bruise which was easily covered with concealer, and nobody would have been any the wiser I had been under the needle on the day of the procedure.

As for the results, I definitely feel I am sporting a ‘lit from within’ glow that most pale folks can only dream of.

Fair skin can often look drab, tired or washed out, so I was thrilled to find my face looking decidedly more radiant and fresh when dragging myself out of bed in the morning.

The end result is definitely a subtle one, though. If you’re looking for dramatic definition or plumpness, this isn’t going to deliver the goods.

However, if you want that ‘your face but better’ effect, skin boosters are fantastic options with results that can last up to a year.

THREAD LIFT, FILLERS or PRP. What’s best for you?

With an extensive menu of rejuvenation treatments now available, many are uncertain about the most suitable aesthetic treatment for their face. The issues facing those looking for non-surgical rejuvenation enhancement techniques are:

  1. what can be accomplished  
  2. the downtime
  3. how long the results can last

Some of our most requested face-enhancing, youth-reviving treatments are Dermal Fillers, the Thread Lift and PRP Therapy (Platelet Rich Plasma). Their benefits in terms of reducing lines and wrinkles, lifting and rejuvenating the skin have different suitabilities, depending on what the client desires.

The treatments are often use in combination or with complimentary treatments like INFINI RF + Microneedling, Laser Peels or Laser Resurfacing

 

Dermal Fillers

How Dermal Fillers work under your skin

 

Here is a quick rundown of what each of these aesthetic frontrunners do. Dermal Fillers are so called because they are made to fill the spaces in our skin which have lost volume with age, hereby showing signs of hollowness, lines and wrinkles. Most dermal fillers used nowadays are natural fillers, owing to their high safety profile and reversibility with a simple enzyme hyaluronidase. Owing to the advancements in dermal filler technology, fillers of different key strengths have emerged, each suited to deliver distinctive outcomes.

 

Dermal Fillers have a filling and sculpting capacity and can create enviable cheeks while restoring facial volume, while Skinboosters are targeted at replenishing the collagen stores of the superficial dermis, boosting their water content, immediately improving skin complexion.

 

Thread Lift

How Threadlifts work under your skin

Threadlifts have undergone several positive revolutions; previous threads used were poorly made and not absorbable.

 

Latest innovations such as Silhouette Soft Thread Lift use 100% bio-absorbable threads that stimulate the formation of a supporting collagen matrix that will anchor the lift as the threads disappear in the upcoming months.

 

Silhouette Soft Thread Lift is famed for superb lifting capacity and utilises anchoring cones cleverly sited along lengthy Poly L-lactic acid threads and is known is the “Queen of all threadlifts”. If your aim is to have the maximal lift, then Silhouette would be the one for you.

 

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

How PRP work under your skin

 

As we age our complexion can start to look tired and dull, one of the reasons is the reduction of platelets in the blood. The Angel PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) boosts the platelets to rejuvenate the skin, improving tone and texture. Extensive research has established a direct correlation between platelets and tissue growth.

 

PRP therapy draws on a patient’s own blood, using it to generate thicker, smoother and more supple skin in areas such as the face and neck, décolletage and hands, resulting in fewer lines and wrinkles. During the procedure, blood is taken from the patient, spun in a centrifuge to extract the platelets, before being reinjected into the treatment area. There, the activated platelets release growth factors, which facilitate cell growth, the formation of blood capillaries and, most importantly, the building of new collagen.

 

While the above treatments may have their fair share of loyal followers, we have scientifically broken them down to their pros and cons. Bearing in mind that your aesthetic goal may be different from another person, the same goes for capacity for downtime, discomfort etc. While this may serve as a guide, nothing will replace a good heart-to-heart talk with your trusted aesthetic doctor. It helps to visit a clinic that offers all treatments, so you can be assured that their recommendation will not be biased but rather be impartial.

How to get rid of a double chin without surgery

Heard of double chin injections? They’re one of the latest cosmetic treatments getting around, with celebrities such as Khloe Kardashian vouching for their effectiveness in sculpting the area under the chin.

And they’re gaining popularity for good reason. Until now there’s been only a handful of options for people who are looking to get rid of a double chin – exercises to help strengthen muscles, surgery (such as liposuction on the neck) to have the excess fat removed, or you can simply deal with it.

In a 2017 study by Allergan, which surveyed more than 3500 Australians aged 20 to 60 years old, it was found that having a double chin causes more concern than any other problem area for Australians of both sexes. What’s more, it was revealed that 57 per cent of those with a double chin have been thinking about treatment options.

This is where chin injections come in – they’re a non-surgical and non-invasive solution to treat this surprisingly common issue, with minimal downtime and permanent results.

Submental (under the chin) fat reduction, also referred to as a non-surgical chin lift or fat-dissolving injections, work to break down fat cells to improve the appearance of a double chin and sagging, creating a more defined jaw line.

“Fat dissolving injections have been really popular in my clinic,” says cosmetic nurse Kelly George from Kelly George Aesthetics. “What I’ve found is that I’m seeing women who have hated their ‘double chin’ or side profile for 20-plus years. After the first treatment, they can see and feel a difference, and they become really excited to see the treatment sessions through. The treatment increases their self-confidence significantly and I love seeing how their demeanour changes over the treatment period.”

What are fat reduction injections?

“Fat dissolving injections are a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid – a naturally occurring molecule that aids in the breakdown of fats in the body,” says George. “When injected into the pocket of fat under the chin, the fat cells are destroyed and metabolised by the body as waste products.” Once injected, these fat cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, meaning these fat removal results are permanent.

Is it painful?

Each treatment involves a series of small injections under the chin, which feel slightly uncomfortable (almost like a burning sensation). “The pain is very short-lived (peaks quickly and subsides within a few minutes),” says George. “Many patients liken the pain to green ant bites. We use a combination of pain relieving therapies to help patients through the treatment.”

Is there any downtime?

Downtime is minimal and you can usually expect some bruising and swelling around the treated area, however this should subside with a few days. “Swelling is significant for around two to four days, and bruising can last up to seven days. As a result, many patients prefer to stay at home for a few days,” says George.

Are there any risks?

As with any medical procedure, there are some risks involved with fat melting injections. “These risks should be discussed with you during your medical consultation to determine your suitability for this treatment,” explains George.

“Expected side effects include: bruising, swelling, pain and numbness of the area. Less common, but potential, more serious risks include nerve damage, which may cause a temporarily uneven smile and difficulty swallowing.”

How many treatments are required for optimal results?

While this varies from patient to patient, changes in the appearance of neck fat will generally become more significant with further treatments. George says best results are achieved with three to four sessions for women, and up to six sessions for men.

Who is a good candidate for this treatment?

“Anyone with a pocket of fat under their chin with reasonable skin quality will benefit from this treatment,” says George. “If there is too much skin laxity (sagging) in the area, dissolving the fat could exacerbate the condition.”

Where can you get neck fat injections?

As it is a prescription-only treatment, double chin injections should only be administered by a registered healthcare professional. “Medical cosmetic clinics offer this treatment. You should always have a consultation with a medical professional to determine your suitability and to discuss associated risks,” says George.

Now You Can Contour Your Face With Injectables

In the Doctor's office there's now an option for "contouring" the jawline. Chin Up is an injection that dissolves fat in double chins.

CHIN UP™ injections reduce fat under the chin, known as submental which can redefine your jawline resulting in a more contoured neck profile.CHIN UP™ fat dissolving injections can effectively eliminate your double chin without surgery.

How does CHIN UP™ work to treat double chins?

CHIN UP™ by SKYN is a treatment involving the injection of  deoxycholic acid (found naturally in the body) into the fat in the double chin area, which destroys the fat cells. Once the fat cells have been destroyed they cannot store fat again – so once you have achieved the look that you want, it is unlikely that you will need more treatment.

How is the CHIN UP™ treatment performed?

Injections are only performed by SKYN® Doctors who have been trained in the treatment. The treatment involves a number of small injections into the fat beneath your chin.

What to expect

The CHIN UP treatment is administered in a series of sessions spaced a few weeks to a month apart for the best results.

Treatment sessions usually take 15 – 20 minutes. You may experience some bleeding, swelling, bruising, or tenderness at or near the treatment area, however these side effects are typically short-lived. While this is a non-invasive procedure and you can return to your daily activities immediately afterward, you may experience some redness, bruising and swelling for a few days up to a few weeks afterward. We suggest that you schedule your treatment near the end of the week, or over the weekend.

Over time, you’ll notice your double chin gradually receding, revealing a slimmer, natural-looking neckline. Because the fat cells targeted by the CHIN UP treatment are destroyed, your results are likely permanent.

7 Top Plastic Surgery Trends for 2019

The 7 Biggest Plastic Surgery Trends for 2019, According to Experts

Plastic surgeons break down the cutting-edge procedures expected to make it big in the new year.

For our selfie-obsessed culture, the desire to look perfectly filtered — in photos and IRL — has never been stronger. In fact, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the number of minimally invasive cosmetic procedures has grown nearly 200 percent since 2000, with no indication of slowing down. Advances in technology and research are on track with consumer demand, and the Food and Drug Administration is set to approve at least three new, cutting-edge cosmetic procedures in 2019. Below, we ask renowned plastic surgeons and cosmetic dermatologists to weigh in on the trends and procedures they think will be the most popular this year to zap, inject, and restore our bodies.

Injectables Are More Accessible Than Ever

“It’s really the era of minimally invasive medical aesthetic procedures,” says Lara Devgan, a board-certified plastic surgeon in New York City. “I think that is not only because of low downtime, lower cost, and lower invasiveness, but also because there’s lower stigma and lower barrier to entry.”

Injectables, lasers, and skin resurfacing can be quick, lunchtime procedures, often with immediately visible effects and limited downtime, qualities that contribute to their inclusivity as well as confidentiality. Injectables, like Botox and fillers, have become so mainstream that, according to the AAFPRS’s annual survey, 80% of all treatments performed by facial plastic surgeons in 2018 were cosmetic, non-surgical procedures, thanks to the subtle but noticeable results and relatively reasonable cost.

Cosmetic Treatments Will Be More Inclusive

The quick bounce back into a normal routine post-procedure has caught the attention of those who are reluctant to admit they had a procedure or don’t want to deal with the downtime. Devgan estimates 15 percent of her patients are men, with that number increasing annually. She attributes the rise to the resurgence of classically masculine features and the decline of the social stigma attached to elected cosmetic procedures.

“A lot of the procedures that I’m doing enhance features to look more masculine,” says Devgan. “Men have historically been interested in the lower third of the face, meaning the chin, neck, and jawline.”

Radio frequency technology, like FaceTite, to address neck and jawline sagging and heft is a procedure New York City-based, board-certified plastic surgeon Adam Kolker, anticipates to skyrocket in 2019, especially among men. “It’s a real revolution in what we’ve been doing to date,” he says. Depending on the patient, it can be done “in conjunction with other procedures, like liposuction or microneedling.

Welcome to the World of the “Tweak-Ment”

Disproportionate breast enhancements, overfilled lips, and exaggerated cosmetic procedures, are all trends that are on their way out. Now a successful plastic surgery or cosmetic procedure should no longer be obvious. Patients increasingly want to maintain their general face structure, inherited family traits, and just generally want to look like themselves, but with a few refined tweaks.

“We are definitely seeing the rise of ‘tweak-ment.’ It’s definitely not like 10 years ago when people were coming in with the cover of a magazine wanting to look more like a supermodel that had nothing to do with their lives,” says Devgan. “Now, people want to look more like their own filtered photos or a Photoshop version of themselves. And recently, people are super into the tiny little micro-optimizations that make them feel a little bit more confident but are not completely obvious.”

Board-certified plastic surgeon David Shafer has noticed that his patients are in favor of a more “natural” look. “I think breast augmentation will continue to be popular, but with smaller, more naturally shaped, or positioned implants. Fat-grafting will continue to be popular into next year, but more for contouring and fine-tuning, rather than just plumping.”

Niche Treatments Are on the Rise

Small, hyper-specific procedures to resolve minor but irksome facial and body quirks are increasing in popularity. These “micro-optimizations,” as categorized by Devgan, include the unorthodox use of filler in locations other than the traditional cheekbone, like the earlobe to tighten a stretched piercing from heavy earrings, or the bridge of the nose during a noninvasive rhinoplasty.

The Facials

Allow up to 120 minutes for two treatments including facial massage.

1. Mesoestetic® Energy C Facial

Sun exposure, smoking, strict diets or stress oxidize the skin and make it loose its brightness. With the passing of time, it becomes dull and the first wrinkles appear. energy C is a cosmeceutical line with high concentrations of vitamin C, that has been formulated to respond to the first signs of chrono and photoaging.

  • Twofold antioxidant action: energy C is able to neutralise free radicals and to regenerate the cell membrane.
  • UVA and UVB photoprotector: thanks to its anti-inflammatory action, energy C reduces post-sun erythema.
  • Brightening effect: energy C brightens the tone, improves pigmentary lesions and prevents the formation of blemishes.
  • Expression lines and fine wrinkles reduction: energy C induces the collagen synthesis and provides moisturisation.

2. Mesoestetic® collagen 360º FACIAL

Collagen is the main component of the fundamental substance of the dermis. Both skin firmness and tensile strength depend on collagen synthesis. Collagen synthesis reduction occurs, however, over time, with increased facial volume loss.

collagen 360º is a cosmeceutical line with high concentrations of enriched marine collagen, that has been formulated to reverse the chronological collagen loss, improving skin elasticity thanks to its redensifying, firming, and tightening action.

collagen 360º has the characteristic of being assimilable both by the topical (OUT) and by oral route (IN):

IN: it acts in the innermost layers to nourish and firm the skin from the inside.
OUT: penetrates to the second layer of the epidermis to act where the skin needs it.

3. Mesoestetic® stem Cell facial

Skin stem cells are the direct precursors of the cells found in the different dermal layers. With the passing of time, its activity slows down: the skin looses its capacity for renewal, resulting in lack of tone and deep wrinkles.

stem Cell is a cosmeceutical line with high concentrations of plant stem cells, that has been formulated to reverse cell regeneration slowing down, strengthening the connective tissue structure and improving skin quality and texture.

The plant stem cells extract contained in stem Cell have revealed its ability to effectively protect and reactivate our own dermoepidermal stem cells, carrying out a strong antiaging and antiwrinkle effect on the skin

4. Mesoestetic® radiance DNA FACIAL

DNA is the code containing all the information necessary for our cells to develop adequately. In an optimum scenario, cells maintain a perfect balance between the activity and restorative periods, and this enables them to recover from external aggressions and keep their metabolic functions in perfect condition. However, with aging, oxidative stress and environmental aggressions, the internal skin mechanisms weaken, damaging the DNA and throwing off balance the expression of some genes essential to fight against aging.

mesoestetic® has created radiance DNA, a global anti aging treatment containing the innovative [meso]recovery complex®, a unique combination of active substances selected for their antioxidant, protecting and restorative properties of cellular DNA. Its exclusive technology is based on specific release biovectors, that are able to vehicle and release “unchanged” the complex of substances in the cell core, thereby ensuring an unprecedented efficacy.

Double Trouble: Chin-up, the treatment that dissolves a double chin

Have a Double Chin? There’s a New Treatment That Could Get Rid of It

It seems there’s an injection for every beauty issue these days. Have wrinkles? Get some Wrinkle Relaxers. Want bigger lips? Get Lip Fillers. And now, if you don’t like your double chin—you guessed it, there’s an injectable for that too. For the record, we’re not saying you need to do any of these things. We think you’re beautiful just the way you are. But for those interested in non-invasive procedure news, we’re here to give it to you.

Ladies and gentlemen, meet Chin up. It’s a new injection, which contains a naturally occurring molecule that eats away at fat. And if it’s injected properly, all the other cells around it (the ones you want) remain healthy and intact.

“The goal with Chin Up™ is to get rid of the fat right under the chin, so you have a better cervicomental angle—that’s the really attractive part of the jawline,” says cosmetic dermatologist Rebecca Fitzgerald, M.D. “That’s great because that angle of the neck makes a big difference in the perception of our face.”

Right now, she’s one of a few select doctors in Los Angeles approved to administer the injection while it gets started in the market. Not because it’s dangerous, but because the doctor who uses it has to have a trained eye to pick the right patient. The best candidate is someone with good skin quality and a very distinct appearance of fat under the chin.

“It’s one size fits all, but not everyone will get the same result,” she says. “Some will get a better result than others.”

If you’re wondering what the side effects are, she says, there’s a good chance you’ll feel sore and swollen a few days afterwards and that the area can feel numb for up to three weeks.

“It might hurt a little,” she says. “But then the fat slowly melts away, and all of the cellular stuff comes in to clean up the debris where you killed the fat—that process also adds collagen, so it helps tighten up the skin where you’ve melted the fat. It’s a very pretty result,” she says.

We spoke to one of Dr. Fitzgerald’s first Chin Up™ patients named Emily (her before picture is on top below, the after on bottom) who says she was interested in the treatment because she had a little pocket of fat under her chin that bothered her in photos. “It was always there no matter my weight,” she says.

Her take on it?

“I was a little nervous about the treatment because I have never had any previous cosmetic procedures. But it didn’t hurt much, just a little sting at the injection site,” she says. “So far I have only had one treatment, and I was advised that I will get an even better result after a second treatment, so I will do it again.”

And when we asked if she feels different, she says, “I have felt a confidence boost! People seem to notice that something is different about me, but they can’t quite put their finger on what it is.”

Treatment cost can vary for each patient, but generally, Dr. Fitzgerald says they’ll need more than one injection to fine-tune the area. Each one happens about four to six weeks apart.
