Why have a Deramal Filler Treatment

“WHEN ART MEETS SCIENCE”

Dermal filler injections are an art, similar to a highly skilled hairdresser or makeup artist.

A natural look is the key to successful treatments and a beautiful end result.

The effects of most dermal fillers are immediate. Dermal filler treatments are quick and normally take only 30-60 minutes. Downtime is minimal and this effective “lunch break treatment” allows you to return to work straight afterwards. Results last between 6-12 months depending on which filler product is used.

Dermal Filler treatment benefits included:

• Plumps, enhances, and redefines lips
• Softens lines between the nose to mouth and or nasolabial folds
• Reduces sad lines between the mouth and chin (commonly referred to as marionette lines)
• Adds and restores volume in cheeks or chin
• Treats tear troughs
• Softens lip lines
• Smooth lines around the eyes
• Redefines and gives shape to recessed chins
• Lifts tired eyebrows to make eyes look more refreshed
• Reshapes your lower jawline to soften jowls
• Treats chin creases
• Improves the appearance of acne or chickenpox scars.
• Make you look less tired and more youthful

Bad Skin Care Habits to Stop TODAY!

Bad Skincare Habits to Stop TODAY!

We all know the obvious skincare wrecking balls…sun exposure, cigarettes, alcohol…etc, but what about the ones we do on a regular basis that affect the appearance of our skin without being so obvious? Are any of these bad habits getting in the way of your beautiful skin?

1. Ignoring anti-aging products until they are “needed”

Preventative skincare is much more important than people give it credit! It is easier to avoid the damage, than it is to repair it once the damage is done. Beginning a good skincare routine at a young age sets the groundwork for healthy skin at all stages. Start now and you can stave off deep lines and wrinkles before they begin!

2. No more picking!

Consider your face a “hands free zone”. Picking at a blemish can aggravate the area and cause scarring and/or hyperpigmentation. Typically a pimple will only stick around for 2-5 days but picking at the skin can cause irritation and lengthen the time of healing considerably. Topical products, such as benzoyl peroxide, can also help reduce redness and speed healing time.

3. Forgetting to cleanse your skin before hitting the pillow.

This is a common skincare no-no, but it bears repeating. Sleeping in our make-up and wear and tear from the day allows all of the oil and grime to settle into our pores. This will make our pores appear larger prevent our skin from naturally exfoliating. Cleanse your skin before hitting the sheets and wake up with smooth, refreshed skin!

4. Don’t forget your neck!

Although we notice the signs of aging on our face first, we can’t forget to protect and treat our neck and chest area. The same anti-aging cocktail that works wonders for the face can do the same for our neck and chest. In addition to using SPF and skincare product in these areas, laser treatments are also highly effective in treating sun damaged and aging skin anywhere on the body.

5. Don’t give up on your products too soon!

Although many magic potions promise to deliver results overnight, real results will take a minimum of four to six weeks. Active ingredients need adequate time and repeated exposure to penetrate and treat the skin effectively. We miss out on the long term benefits by stopping prematurely. Good things come to those who wait!

Where did that chin hair come from?

Have you ever been told that plucking makes your hair grow in darker and thicker? First, this is a myth, plucking does not chemically change the structure of the hair follicle. These hairs are coarser and thicker because of hormonal changes.

All women produce small amounts of the male hormone called Androgen. When a woman has an overabundance of it, these hairs commonly develop on the jawline, upper lip and chin. Even though this is not a medical concern and quite common, it is still embarrassing and annoying.
These hairs can appear at any age, and more prominent after menopause. Sometimes the hormonal changes due to birth control pills, pregnancy, to irregular periods, and hormonal imbalances can be the culprit.

What can you do to get rid of them? For blonde/white hairs, try electrolysis and for dark pigmented hair, laser hair removal is your best permanent option.
Laser hair removal is the most effective way to destroy hair follicles leaving smooth lasting results. This treatment is progressive and requires six treatments per area. The laser destroys the hair follicle resulting in the inability to produce hair. Set up a consult today to end the battle of the pesky chin hairs for good!

It’s an easy fix; you just need to make the call (952)-435-6565.

Thermage: Still the Gold Standard

Thermage has been around for sometime already, but still regarded by many as the non-surgical gold standard for skin tightening. Unlike many skin tightening modalities, Thermage CPT is FDA approved. It is also a onetime treatment, where many of its competitors require a series of treatments because they are not as deep and less effective at heating the skin, decreasing their improvement capabilities.

Thermage CPT uses focused radiofrequency energy to stimulate the body’s own natural renewal process. This helps improve the appearance of sagging or loose skin giving you a smoother, younger look. A Thermage CPT with Total Tip Technology treatment is what Dermatologist Dr.Carney recommends to our patients who want to improve the laxity of their skin.

Thermage is one of the unique treatments that require no downtime. Our patients see results immediately off the table and continue to get improvement over the next six months as their skin regenerates new collagen.

Skin Speaks was the first clinic in Minnesota to offer Thermage eight years ago. Although many have followed in our footsteps providing this fabulous treatment, not all have grown with Thermage as the company has evolved and developed many generations of this system. We have grown with Thermage and offer their most up-to-date technology (The CPT system with the Total Tip) to offer you the best results you can find.

Have confidence in the treatment and provider you choose and schedule your complimentary consult today, to see if Thermage is right for you!
