Summer Skin Roundup

Summer Skin Roundup

Summer is here, and with it comes long, carefree days in the sunshine. But make sure you still put plenty of care into your skin! Your skincare routine changes slightly each season, and though you might want to skimp on products when temperatures rise, you should actually be extra vigilant with your skin regimen. This doesn’t mean piling on tons of products—just adjust what you use and when you use it to protect your skin and keep it looking beautiful.

Benefits of Probiotic Yogurt for Skin

You’ve probably noticed that skincare goes through trends in the same way that fashion does. From cucumbers on tired eyes to vampire facials, skincare seems to have seen it all. But now, many dermatologists are publicizing the benefits of simple ingredients—ingredients you often find in your own kitchen. Recently, Dr. Harold Lancer was featured on the Dr. Oz Show, where he discussed the anti-aging benefits of using probiotic yogurt on your skin.

Non-surgical Ultherapy

What Is Ultherapy?

Somewhere in our mid-30s or early 40s, we look in the mirror one day and realize our skin looks different than it used to. Over time, skin loses elasticity and collagen, causing the telltale sagging and loose skin that signifies aging. Jawlines loosen, cheeks begin to fall, eyebrows and eyelids droop, and chins start to look weaker than they are. Time and gravity can be cruel, and this loose skin is one of the principal complaints dermatologists see. Yet even those who are most bothered by the touch of time and gravity on their skin are often hesitant to sign up to get poked by needles, injected with fillers and neurotoxins, or go under the knife, fearing the unnatural results and complications that can come with these procedures. So, is there an option that doesn’t require these kinds of invasive treatments?

Endymed Intensif

What is Endymed?

Spring is on its way, which means we’ll be showing a lot more skin in a matter of weeks. With shorter hemlines, sleeveless silhouettes, deep-V necklines, and bright sunlight on the horizon, you might be looking into ways to make your skin look younger and firmer, even in the harshest lighting. Exercise, a healthy diet, and advanced skincare are all a fantastic start, but sometimes skin needs additional treatments to look revived, refreshed, and its best. For that, you’ll want to head to your dermatologist for the most advanced treatments for improving the way your skin looks and feels.

What to Expect with Thermiva and PicoWay Treatments

Many women are looking for additional ways to improve the look of the skin all over their bodies. While excellent skincare is a great first step, there are other things to consider. When it comes to skin and tissue damage, as well as permanent marks like tattoos, clients often need to go beyond skincare to see results. Increasingly, patients are seeking procedures to treat issues that may be less conventional, but ultimately make a big difference in how they feel about themselves and how they look.

How to Recover from New Year’s Eve

The holidays are a time of merriment and absolute indulgence. The food is rich and sugary, the drinks are boozy and plentiful, and the hours are long. All this extravagance can be rough on your body and skin as it is, but then there is New Year’s Eve—the ultimate in decadent holiday celebrations. Unless you’re on a quiet spa getaway focused on clean living and clean eating, New Year’s Eve is the penultimate challenge to your body and skin.

Natural Healing Powers of the Skin

Lancer - Natural HealingThe skin’s incredible ability to heal itself is at the core of The Lancer Method. Rather than relying on invasive measures or miracle ingredients to keep skin looking young, we always recommend the natural route first.  With young skin, cell renewal happens every 28 days. However, as aging occurs, the skin stops renewing itself at the same rate, resulting in dull, sallow skin, a lack of collagen and elastin, and eventually wrinkles and sagging.  But here’s the good news: You can fight this slow-down with manual exfoliation and recreate the lit-from-within glow of youth – and all it takes is a little scrub. By using Polish, you physically stimulate the skin to speed up the cell renewal cycle. Exfoliating (or Polishing, as we call it around here) causes a controlled injury at the most surface layer of the skin, which signals the body to send growth factors, blood and new cells to the skin. This action creates the fresh, glowing look of youthful skin and staves off aging. So next time you look in the mirror and see a reflection that’s looking a little tarnished. Remember this: all it takes is a little Polish.

Excercise Your Way to Glowing Skin

Good news: it doesn’t take intense exercise to rev your skin’s engine. (In fact, too much exercise can age you.) But getting the right amount on a daily basis can regulate hormone levels, boost immunity and increase blood flow to skin, creating a perfect storm of exercise-induced glow. Get Dr. Lancer’s take on youth-enhancing exercise in his latest video interview with Sally Lyndley.

The Real Scoop on Frown Line Fixes

unnamed (1)

That moment when you notice a new expression line forming on your face is one of the most frustrating things about getting older. You may still feel (and act!) like an energetic 20 year-old, but your face is letting you down, giving away your actual age with every passing hour. What’s more, there are so many products and treatments out there that promise a quick fix, it’s hard to sort the wheat from the chaff. So we took the guesswork out of frown line fixes. Here’s the real scoop on what works, what doesn’t, and what you don’t want to overdo.

1. Patches such as Frownies or Furless. Although these ‘miracle patches’ may be tempting, there is absolutely no evidence they make a difference over time. You are much better off investing in high quality pillowcases and learning to sleep on your back to keep your face from getting creased at night. (Over time, those creases can become frown lines.)

2. Botox and Dysport. A popular option for freezing up the facial muscles to stop the formation of expression lines, neurotoxins are highly effective for preventing deep lines and wrinkles, but need to be administered every few months to keep results looking fresh. There is also a risk of “loss of expression” if the doctor administering the injectable is too heavy handed. If you decide to explore neurotoxins further, make sure you trust your doctor and take a light approach.

3. Juvederm and Restylane. Another popular option for deep expression lines, fillers do just what the name implies – fill in deep lines, wrinkles and facial folds. Fillers like Juvaderm are great for deep lines that are already prevalent, but won’t prevent further development of wrinkles. Again, these should be administered by a light-handed professional.

4. Dermatude. One of the newest and most innovative machines in our office, Dermatude is quickly becoming a favorite option for patients looking to reverse expression lines without the follow up appointments or risk of expression loss. The machine pairs micro rolling with radio frequency, triggering the body’s own healing action in the deep layers of the skin, boosting collagen and elastin production and nearly erasing expression lines. This treatment is especially popular with men.

5. Youth Serum. The newest addition to the Lancer Skincare collection, our Younger: Pure Youth Serum is an amazing blend of vitamin A esters and biomimetic retinol compounds that actually speed up the skin’s cellular cycle without the irritation that accompanies the use of traditional retinol. Youth Serum is a smart addition to your regimen if you’re looking to prevent expression lines or correct existing ones.

6. Facial Massage. Facial massage has long been the secret weapon for makeup artists and facialists, giving their clients an immediately lifted and beautifully contoured face.  The gentle stroking can relax facial muscles and connective tissue, thereby softening expression lines, in addition to aiding lymphatic drainage which depuffs the skin.  We love to use our Microcurrent Power Boost as a massage tool, which not only softens expression lines and lifts the skin, but also neutralizes free radicals.
