Value of A Lunchtime Peel – Microdermabrasion from The AgeLess Center

Safe and gentle, a microdermabrasion or, lunchtime peel, is also quick and effective. Which is how the technique got this nickname.

microdermabrasion lunchtime peel | the ageless centerTechnically, a lunchtime peel is a process of microdermabrasion that removes a fine layer of skin cells from the outer layer of skin (the epidermis) on the face and/or neck. The process helps to renew skin cells that contain collagen, which is why it feels softer and more pliable after the treatment. It also stimulates circulation.

Developed in Italy in the mid-1980s, microdermabrasion typically uses positive pressure to blast the outer layer of the skin with micro-fine crystals through a specially designed hand piece that is then used to vacuum the dead skin cells from the skin. The entire process only takes 30 minutes – less than a good lunch would take! There is no downtime associated with the procedure although some people find their skin is a little flushed for a short while after treatment. This usually doesn’t last for more than 20 minutes to an hour.

Microdermabrasion is safe for women and men of all colors and can be used to treat various skin conditions. Treatments have been clinically proven to help reduce wrinkles, fine lines in the skin, acne scars, and stretch marks. It can also effective for minimizing age and sun spots, enlarged and clogged pores, flaking and dry skin, and even uneven pigmentation.

People ask if a lunchtime peel is painful, and the answer is no. All you will feel is a sensation of vacuum suction and the tiny crystal particles making contact with your skin. Treatments are customized to maintain individual comfort levels.

The number of treatments you opt for will depend on the condition of your skin. Generally, people with acne scars require the greatest number of treatments.

So if you want to put healthier, better looking skin on your lunch menu call The AgeLess Center in Atlanta to book a microdermabrasion appointment now.

The Best Cosmetic Procedures to Minimize Wrinkles

Wrinkles are inevitable. They happen when we age although some people get them earlier than others. Some people get more wrinkles than others, and some get them earlier when they are younger.

If you’ve got wrinkles you will identify immediately.

The question is. What, if anything, are you going to do about them?

If you prefer the alternative to plastic surgery, these are the most popular options:

  • Xeomin
  • Botox
  • Radiesse
  • Restylane
  • Belotero
  • Perlane

Xeomin

A neurotoxin that was approved by the FDA for cosmetic use quite recently, Xeomin is recommended for the reduction of forehead wrinkles and ugly crow’s feet that are wrinkles that form at the outside edges of the eyes.

Botox

The very first botulinum toxin approved by the FDA for cosmetic use, Botox has been around for 15 years. Initially, it was used to treat ugly lines that form between the eyebrows, but it is also effective for eliminating forehead or frown wrinkles and crow’s feet. Millions of people have had successful Botox treatments.

Radiesse

A product that fills wrinkles, Radiesse helps to increase the production of new collagen that gives volume and flexibility to the skin. This minimizes the furrows formed by wrinkles and effectively fills out the cheeks and other facial indentations.

Restylane

Also approved by the FDA for cosmetic use Restylane fills out the lines, folds, and wrinkles that form between nose and mouth. It contains hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that, like collage it makes the skin full and elastic.

Belotero

A filler that utilizes the same compounds used in Juvederm and Restylane, Belotero has a totally different formulation that has been designed to minimize wrinkles and fine lines that form under the eyes, above the lips, and on the cheeks. It can even be effective in camouflaging shallow facial scars and acne scars.

Perlane

Like Radiesse, Perlane helps collagen to form in the skin and fills out wrinkles, particularly those that form between the mouth and chin. Like Restylane, it contains hyaluronic acid that also helps to get rid of wrinkles.

Get Ready for Bikini Weather With Leg Vein Treatments

As summer makes a comeback, bikini weather is on its way. This means we’re going to be exposing our bodies to the sun – and to other people.

Whether you’re going to be heading to the beach or planning to stick around your own swimming pool, you’re going to want to look your best. Perhaps you feel you need to lose a little weight, or you might want to get rid of facial wrinkles. But maybe it’s those spider veins in your legs that are worrying you.

Whatever your problem is, only you can do something about it. And now is the time to act.

What Are Spider Veins?

Considerably smaller than ubiquitous varicose veins, spider veins are relatively small, red, blue, or purple veins that become visible through the skin. They are most usual on the legs, but also show up on cheeks quite often.

Spider veins – also known as leg veins because this is where they are most commonly found – are more common in women than men. They also develop more frequently in older people. But don’t feel too bad about it, between 30 and 60 percent of all adults are estimated to have some form of leg, spider, or varicose veins.

 

Leg Vein Treatments

There are a number of ways that leg veins can be treated.

The Ageless Center in Atlanta offers a common leg vein treatment solution in the form of sclerotherapy. It is a simple surgical-free procedure and it produces minimal discomfort.

This treatment was designed to cause the veins to close and then disappear gradually. Give The AgeLess Center a call today to schedule your next appointment!

Can You Treat Laugh Lines with Botox?

A quick, incredibly effective remedy for age-related wrinkles, and facial lines caused by worry, stress, and a multitude of environmental factors, Botox is regarded as a cosmetic process. It’s much cheaper than surgery and a lot less painful.

The Botox Toxin

Made from a neuromuscular botulinum toxin that was originally approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as a treatment for eye-muscle disorders, it is amazingly effective when used to minimize facial lines and wrinkles. The results don’t last forever, but the procedure can be performed regularly to maximize its cosmetic effects.

Botox is hugely successful in most cases when used to get rid of ubiquitous crow’s feet that form at the outer corners of our eyes, as well as common glabellar lines that are so common between the inner ends of brows. This in itself is enough to make anybody laugh, largely since smiling and laughter are common causes of these wrinkly lines in the first place! It is also used to treat wrinkles around the mouth, some of which were likely caused by smiling too – or maybe grimacing or frowning.

Botox is particularly effective in most cases for treating wrinkles that are caused by muscle movement in the facial area. These lines are usually associated with facial expressions – including laughing and smiling – and are very common around the eyes. The way it works is that the toxin weakens the muscles that make us squint and crinkle our eyes.

Because Botox only affects muscles nerves and not those that cause sensation, there isn’t a loss of feeling when patients are treated.

Botox for Medical Problems

Even though it was initially approved for a medical disorder, the FDA has approved the use of Botox for cosmetic purposes for anyone aged 18 to 65.

Interestingly, botulinum toxin was isolated for the first time in 1946, and it took four years for scientists to identify medical applications for which it could be used.

In addition to cosmetic uses, Botox is also commonly used to stop excessive sweating (known as hyperhidrosis), to control migraine headaches and muscle spasm (dystonia), as well as tension in the jaw, and other types of chronic pain.

Cause and Treatments for Spider Veins

A surprisingly common condition, spider veins are similar to varicose veins, but less defined and closer to the skin’s surface. They are often blue or red in color and resemble tiny spider webs in the form of short, fine lines that form on the legs or face.

Like varicose veins, spider veins (which are also known as leg veins) are often caused by a back-up of blood in the veins. This usually happens when the valves in veins weaken. However, spider veins may be caused by hormonal changes, by excessive exposure to sunlight, and also injury.

While spider veins are very common, particularly in people over 50, there are ways to lessen the risk of them developing. There are also ways to help treat them.

Common Causes of Spider Veins

One of the reasons spider veins frequently occur in the legs is due, quite simply, to the pressure of body weight along with the force of gravity. Unlike veins in other parts of the body, leg veins have to endure enormous pressure as they carry blood from the feet to the heart. If the pressure is stronger than the valves in the veins, spider veins – and quite likely varicose veins – are likely to form. When people are obese or overweight, there is even more pressure on the veins in the legs!

Sometimes people are born with weak vein valves, which will increase the risk of spider veins. They also seem to be hereditary, so if other people in your family have them, there is more of a chance you will too. But being aware of preventative causes can help prevent them. For instance, a general lack of movement can be a strong factor, particularly for people who sit cross-legged or with their legs bent. Even if you have to stand for long periods of time, your leg veins will be forced to work a lot harder pumping blood to the heart.

Exposure to the sun is another cause that can be controlled. While fair-skinned people are most likely to develop spider veins on their nose or cheeks, it stands to reason that everyone should use protective sun creams if they are going to be exposure to harsh sunlight.

Pregnancy is another common cause of spider veins. As the uterus grows there is increased pressure on the veins. The volume of blood in the body also increases during pregnancy, which commonly causes veins to become more enlarged than usual. Additionally, hormonal changes during pregnancy as well as during puberty and menopause appear to contribute to the development of spider veins. Medication that contains estrogen and progesterone (including birth control pills) could also contribute to the formation of spider veins.

Another very common cause is increasing age, which none of us can control. The fact is that as we age, the valves in our veins weaken and they don’t work as well as they did when we were younger.

How to Help Treat Spider Veins

Spider veins don’t normally cause serious health problems, but they can be ugly, make us feel old, and they can also cause discomfort. Left untreated, they could develop into varicose veins that can result in quite serious health problems.

The most common treatment for spider veins is sclerotherapy, which involves dosing the veins with a special solution that makes the veins close and may help them to disappear. It is a minor procedure that doesn’t require surgery or anesthesia.

If you suffer from spider veins and are in Georgia, visit The AgeLess Center, the leading studio for cosmetic enhancement. Their spidervein treatment is regarded as the best in Atlanta for service and for price.

Cosmetic Enhancements That May Replace Facial Collagen

Collagen is a protein that is found throughout the human body, in our muscles and tendons, our bones, and in our skin. Simplistically put, it provides structure and strength, acting like a kind of scaffold or framework that holds everything together.

It plays an incredibly important role in terms of replacing dead skin cells, but as we age, our natural production of collagen decreases. Collagen also reduces significantly because of various environmental factors including excessive exposure to UV light. When collagen is reduced it typically results in skin that sags and forms wrinkles and lines. It can also result in the weakening of cartilage in the joints.

Collagen Fillers for Cosmetic Enhancements

The good news is that even though our natural supplies of collagen decrease with age, manmade collagen fillers can be used to removed lines, wrinkles, and even scars from our face, neck and even our hands.

Cosmetic enhancements that replace facial collagen include:

  • Microdermabrasion Also known as the lunchtime peel, microdermabrasion is a cosmetic enhancement that removes dead skin cells from the face and encourages the growth of new healthy cells that are rich in collagen. Microdermabrasion is a quick process that takes only half an hour and will make your facial skin feel rejuvenated and refreshed.
  • Perlane Approved by the FDA, Perlane contains both collagen and hyaluronic acid, another natural component found in the skin. So while the hyaluronic acid helps to improve the elasticity and natural fullness in the skin, the collagen fills out lines and wrinkles, particularly those between the mouth and chin. It also helps to produce new collagen in the skin and can be effective for getting rid of the lines that form between the nose and corners of the mouth.
  • Radiesse A cosmetic enhancement product used to stimulate the production of natural collagen in our bodies, Radiesse is used to help fill out age-related depressions in the face. It can even be used to sculpt the face and reshape the nose! It can also be particularly effective for filling out wrinkles in most cases.

The Best Cosmetic Procedures to Reduce Scarring

There are many cosmetic procedures that will minimize wrinkles and other obvious signs of aging. These also keep the skin looking and feeling smooth and young. But what about scars, that are not caused by getting older?

The AgeLess Center in Atlanta, Georgia specializes in facial treatments that rely on proven products that are cosmetically enhancing. Since most of them can be used to successfully sculpt the face and fill our depressions and wrinkles, they can also be used to minimize or even reduce scarring.

A Cosmetic Filler Made For Delicate Areas and Scarring

When shallow acne and other facial scars are an issue, Belotero is our best recommendation. A filler that is made from the same compounds as our popular Juvederm and Restylane treatments, Belotero is also a great option for all the most common wrinkles and lines.

While Juvederm and Restylane can also be effective in minimizing or reducing scarring, the Belotero formula is different. Made specifically with delicate facial areas in mind, it is particularly effective for use on thinner skin, or in areas of the face where the skin tends to be thinner. Because of its different formulation, Belotero is able to spread through the natural collagen fibers of the skin more evenly than most other fillers do. This results in a much softer, more natural look, and fills out scars more effectively.

Belotero is also recognized as creating a more subtle result, particularly around the mouth and eyes that can sometimes look different after filler treatments.

It is generally the number one choice for treating wrinkles that have formed under eyes or above the upper lip.

Like Juvederm and Restylane, Belotero is made from hyaluronic acid, which is a substance that occurs naturally in the skin, adding hydration and fullness.

Of course, every person’s situation is different, and there is no one cure-all solution. So if you have scars you want to get rid of, contact us or make an appointment. Our professional therapists will assess your problem and advise accordingly.

Use Restylane and Juvederm to Look Your Best for 2017

Facial imperfections go hand-in-hand with aging, less-than-perfect health, and lack of sleep. In addition to wrinkles, dark circles and puffy bags under the eyes, and lines that form between the mouth and nose, make us look and feel pretty awful.

There was a time when the only certain way to minimize these facial imperfections was to have a surgical facelift. But today there are a number of non-surgical cosmetic enhancements that will minimize lines and wrinkles as well as puffiness, and add fullness to certain parts of the face. Dermal fillers, in particular, can improve facial features instantly, making the skin look and feel young and fresh again.

The AgeLess Center in Atlanta, Georgia offers various non-surgical treatments that are proven to restore the good looks of both men and women. Two popular dermal fillers are:

  1. Restylane that makes the lips look fuller and more sensual and counteract puffiness under the eyes.
  2. Juvederm that makes lips and cheeks look fuller, and also improves the appearance of the skin below the eyes.

How Restylane Improves Your Looks

Undoubtedly the best option for counteracting puffiness and dark circles under the eyes, Restylane adds volume and improves hydration, effectively restoring the insulating layers of skin under the eyes. The results are incredibly natural and you’ll be amazed at how youthful your skin will appear after the treatment. It is also an excellent option for minimizing folds and lines that form between the nose and corners of the mouth.

Approved by the FDA, Restylane contains hyaluronic acid that occurs naturally in our skin. When we start to age the natural hyaluronic acid in our skin lessens and reduces fullness, increasing the potential for lines, folds, and wrinkles to form and/or become more obvious.

The effect of Restylane treatments generally lasts for about six months.

How Juvederm Will Get You Looking Best for the Holidays

Adding volume to cheeks and lips, Juvederm also has the effect of smoothing out folds and wrinkles, including so-called smile lines that form between the nose and mouth.

Juvederm is safe and effective and, like Restylane contains hyaluronic acid that improves hydration and adds volume to the skin. New formulations of Juvederm contain lidocaine that numbs facial tissue for a limited period of time while the treatment is applied.

Juvederm treatments take only about 15 minutes and show immediate results with very little recovery time. Effects generally last for four to six months.

If you’re after holiday good looks please call The AgeLess Center for an appointment. Our treatments will get you going and have you feeling bright and beautiful in no time at all!

 

Botox and Xeomin Help You Look Your Best for the Holidays

We all like to feel good and what better way than by ensuring we look our best. If you’ve got dark rings around your eyes after a long year, or your skin is showing unwelcome signs of aging, a quick Botox/Xeomin non-surgical treatment can make the world of difference.

If you haven’t tried either treatment yet, you will find that both Botox and Xeomin offer a fantastic solution to sagging and wrinkled facial skin.

Both Botox and Xeomin are botulinum toxins that will minimize or even reduce:

  • Ugly crow’s feet lines that form at the outside corners of the eyes
  • Typical forehead lines that form when we frown or squint against the sun
  • Deep glabellar lines and furrows that form between the inside of the eyebrows, making us look much older than we really are
  • Uneven, wrinkly facial skin

Neither Botox nor Xeomin treatments require any recovery time. Both show immediate results and facial skin feel smooth and looks considerably younger.

Why Botox?

Tried and trusted for more than 14 years, Botox was originally approved by the FDA for the treatment of very severe lines between the brows. Since this time more than 11-million people have had Botox treatments. While results do vary, most patients have been totally satisfied with the resultant effects.

Why Xeomin?

  • Belotero is another excellent treatment for wrinkles and fine lines. It can even minimize shallow facial scars, including acne.
