How Stars Prep for the Oscars
You already know many of the ways stars prep for awards season – with the Venus Legacy, stem cell facials, cleanses and months-long exercise regimes – but for the biggest red carpet of the year, it’s time to pull out the (really) big guns. Here are three cutting-edge treatments, two of which are exclusive to Lancer Dermatology, that harness the skin’s ability to self-repair. Nothing looks better on the red carpet than a natural glow, which is why we love these three non-invasive, filler-free treatments that will make anyone ready for the glow of the spotlight – whether it’s the Oscars or a real-life red carpet.
PicoWay is an innovative dual wavelength laser that fires one thousand times faster than the fastest laser currently available to the medical community. The ultra-fast picosecond bursts of energy transmitted to the tissue enable the laser to break up pigment more effectively and trigger the body’s own self-repair mechanisms. Dr. Lancer is the first dermatologist in the United States to have this laser in practice. His decision to use this technology is bolstered by the fact that the laser’s ability to trigger self-healing in the skin aligns perfectly with his anti-aging philosophy of stimulating healing self-repair.
Venus Viva is a NanoFractional Radio Frequency machine that is designed to reduce pore size, correct textural irregularities, soften and diminish wrinkles, and tighten skin laxity, all with minimal downtime and discomfort. The machine uses consistent selectional dermal heating to achieve optimal, immediate and long term results. Dr. Lancer is the first dermatologist in the US to have this machine in his practice.
Technically known as PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) Microneedling, the “Vampire Facial” involves taking a patient’s blood, putting it in a centrifuge so that the plasma separates from the red blood cells, and then using a microneedling pen to aerate the skin, while applying the plasma topically. The needling stimulates the fibroblasts in the skin to speed up production of collagen, elastin and growth factor, giving skin an amazing glow. This treatment also corrects fine lines, pigmentation, and topical scars. It is ideal to have in adjunct to regular use of The Method because it employs the same science, the skin’s ability to self-repair.
