Interestingly, a recent study has found that most melanoma cases don’t arise from those moles we’ve had forever; they come from new moles. Through this Weekly Dose of Beauty article, find out how to ensure the changes to your skin are safe and melanoma-free.

The Big Benefits of Microneedling

Thursday, August 31st, 2017

Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a minimally-invasive skin rejuvenation procedure that helps minimize the signs of aging, improve the appearance of acne scars, reduce large pores and uneven skin texture, and overall rejuvenate the skin.  We perform microneedling with SkinPen, a medical-grade, state-of-the-art microneedling tool available only through medical professionals. Microneedling results in skin remodeling and effects the process of collagen and elastin formation, the two proteins predominantly responsible for the structure of the skin. The outcome is beautiful, youthful-looking skin.

Cool News for CoolSculpting Fans

Friday, August 25th, 2017

CoolSculpting is an FDA-cleared, non-invasive way to contour your body by freezing away unwanted fat. The CoolSculpting procedure works by delivering controlled cooling that targets the fat cells underneath the skin while leaving the skin itself unaffected. The treated fat cells are crystalized (frozen), causing natural cell elimination. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells, leaving a more sculpted you. This innovative technology has been recently upgraded to offer shorter treatment time and greater patient comfort. With a wide range of applicators optimized to fit different body shapes and sizes, more areas are now treatable.

Treatment areas include:

  • Under the chin
  • Abdomen
  • Bra fat
  • Inner and outer thighs
  • Arms
  • Hips
  • Waist
  • Flanks
  • Muffin top
  • Axilla puff
  • Knees
  • Back fat

The FYI on SPF at CVS

Thursday, June 1st, 2017

What’s the safest way to enjoy the summer sun for you– and your skin? Most of us these days are well-aware that regularly applying skincare products containing an SPF of at least 30 can offer greater protection from the sun’s harmful rays. These products also help to prevent the fine wrinkles and spots associated with sun damage, helping to make the skin look younger.

Now, CVS is also taking SPF seriously. In a recent press release, the company has indicated its stores will soon no longer carry any suncare products with SPFs less than 15, replacing them with SPF 30 products. Find out what prompted this change and how it may affect your product choices.
