For those of us who have fine lines, sun spots (NEVER called AGE spots), a little Melasma, accompanied with a hint of under eye crepiness I have two words CHEMICAL PEELS.
In the past anti-aging chemical peels ended up more closely resembling chemical burns and so peels got a bad rap. However chemical peels have not disappeared. Instead, they’ve gotten a makeover – a dramatic one! Thank goodness. There are still some super awesome peels that slough off the dead, the dull and the pore-clogging layer of skin cells such as our “Perfect Ten Peel”. The Perfect 10 Peel is an ideal, non-invasive, low-cost alternative for patients seeking immediate result with minimal discomfort and little downtime. It is specially formulated to be a gentle yet uniquely powerful peel treatment. The hallmark of the Perfect 10 Peels is that it provides actual visible peeling. Don’t let the word CHEMICAL scare you. Not all chemicals are created equal (or evil).
October is a month for Pumpkins…So we here at Resnik Skin Institute are celebrating the pumpkin and its amazing source of vitamins and anti-oxidants and enzymes all month long. I am doing Pumpkin Spice Facials and as a gift you get a jar of Pumpkin Spice Mask to take home with you so you continue using once a week experiencing all the great vitamins, minerals, fiber, and antioxidants!
You can tell pumpkin is good for you by its bright color. Not only is pumpkin loaded with vitamin A and antioxidant carotenoids, particularly alpha and beta-carotenes, it’s a good source of vitamins C, K, and E, with lots of minerals, including magnesium, potassium, and iron.
Parents sometimes overlook teen acne. Parents don’t notice it because it tends to creep up on them. Sometimes as parents, we tend to shrug it off as “Don’t all teens get pimples?”
Here at ResnikCenterfor Dermatology we see lots of teens with mild to severe acne and know that most are not only affected physically but emotionally as well. Even if your child doesn’t come right out and say it, chances are he or she is uncomfortable and embarrassed about his or her acne. For some teens, acne can have a huge impact on how they feel about themselves. Unfortunately it can begin to negatively impact their self-esteem. Teen Acne can make kids feel like they are all alone. The truth is, puberty and pimples go hand in hand and teenagers from every ethnic background, nationality, size and shape will probably experience acne during their teen years. In fact, 9 out of 10 teenagers suffer from acne. Our goal here is to help you and your teen deal with acne in a constructive way.
Let’s just say that the two go hand in hand.
When our skin appears young, firm, taut and smooth this is Collagen at its best. Collagen is a structural protein found in the connective tissues of the body. It makes up 75% of the skin, it is crucial for the appearance of youthfulness; this naturally-occurring substance makes the skin strong, plump and smooth.
Peptides are also commonly called amino acids. These peptides make up the proteins in the skin. They become proteins when they form a long chain of amino acids. However, when peptides are in a short chain of amino acids, they have the ability to penetrate the upper layer of the skin and signal the cells telling them how to function.
Mint has a cool refreshing aroma. Imagine how your skin might feel if it were smoothed and caressed with it.
Mint is also enjoyed in a hot cup of tea or a delicious slice of Grasshopper Cheesecake. However, most people do not think of mint as something that can improve your skin. Used as a cleansing treatment it reaches deep into the skin and helps dry up blackheads and remove impurities.
In skin care products, mint is used in creams, toners, body lotions and face masks. As a beauty treatment product, it’s often combined with other natural ingredients such as lavender, chamomile, jojoba and aloe vera.
