Skin firming with Derm Perfexion

Hi, it’s ReNew You Medical Spa in Elk River Minnesota! We are here today to talk about our newest treatment Derm Perfexion!

What is Derm Perfexion?

This treatment stimulates the skins regenerative process that provides immediate aesthetic improvement, skin firming/tightening and deep hydration. This is a unique treatment as it combines H2O2 and a high concentration of trichloroacetic acid or TCA. This is an acid that is commonly found in chemical peels and is used to rejuvenate the skin. Usually, high concentrations of TCA cause significant downtime and avoidance the sun. Because of this unique combination of H2O2 and TCA there is no downtime and can be done all year round. This is complete rejuvenation that can be done on the face, neck or any where on the body that has shown signs of aging.

What does it treat? 

The Derm Perfexion treatment targets

  • Aging skin
  • Texture
  • Laxity
  • Wrinkles
  • Dull skin
  • Safe for Fitzpatrick 1-6

How many treatments will I need?

Repeating the application once a week for 4 weeks enhances the aesthetic effect. We recommend starting with a package of 4 and then continuing the Derm Perfexion treatment on an as needed basis or as part of your anti aging treatment plan recommended by your provider.

What products do you recommend? 

The at home skincare we suggest patients use consistently is a gentle cleanser, a vitamin C product to protect against the visible effects of sun damage and free radicals. Vitamin A such as a retinol based product to promote cell turnover. Most importantly, an SPF as the sun is our biggest cause of accelerated aging and wrinkles . For this specific treatment we have two at home products that are included when you buy a package of 4 treatments which you will use over the course of a month while receiving these treatments. These products are:

  • A moisturizing face cream that restores the hydrolipidic film and and supplies many active ingredients such as vitamin A and E, nutritive substances and plant extracts.
  • A smoothing fluid that contains a low glycolic acid to enhance results at home.

Maintain skin health with regular microdermabrasion appointments

Hi, It’s Jamie Advanced Practice Esthetician at ReNew You Medical Spa in Elk River Minnesota. I am here to talk to you today about medical microdermabrasion and why it should be in your skin care treatment plan!

 

What is medical microdermabrasion? 

Microdermabrasion is a process of physically exfoliating the skin. Exfoliating is the process of removing dead skin cells from the surface of your skin. In young, healthy skin, this process happens naturally approximately every 28 days, making room for new skin cells. As we age, not only does the skin turnover slow down but sometimes dead cells don’t shed completely. This can result in a less than desired tone and texture as dead cells build up on your skin. This can create a barrier to any of the products you may be using therefor you are unable to use these products to their full potential.

A medical grade microdermabrasion can remove up to 30% of dead surface skin resulting in a smoother complexion that is able to better absorb skin care products. 

 

At ReNew You, we have multiple modalities of microdermabrasion that are fully customizable so we can tailor your facial treatment to best suit your skin. 

  •  Traditional microdermabrasion uses a Diamond tip wand and suction to gently loosen the dead skin and pull it away. This can be customized in a microdermabrasion facial with other nourishing skin care products.
  •  The Diamond Glow utilizes a smaller Diamond tip wand that exfoliates while using an advanced vortex technology. This technology pushes nourishing serums into the skin while simultaneously extracting dirt, oil and debris.
  • The hydrafacial  utilizes a disposable plastic microderm tip while it deeply cleanses. This treatment also uses a light chemical exfoliation and loads your skin with hydration and antioxidants that will protect your skin from free radical damage.

How many treatments will I need? 

It is encouraged to get regular medical grade exfoliating treatments as we age approximately every 4-6 weeks to help maintain skin cell turnover.

What products do you recommend to improve the health of the skin at home? 

ReNew You also sells 2 microdermabrasion home care products that are great options to maintain optimal skin health at home between appointments.
  • Revisions Finishing touch is a microdermabrasion scrub that you can apply and massage in a circular motion all over face and neck (I like this for hands too) for about 1-3 minutes after you cleanse. Simply rinse away and apply your regular regimen after that.
  • Revisions Pumkin Enzyme Mask is a gentle microdermabrasion mask that also nourishes and hydrates your skin. After you cleanse you massage this mask in for 1-3 minutes and then leave on for an addition 10-15 minutes to nourish and hydrate. Rinse away and then apply your regular skin care regimen.

How do I get started? 

Microdermabrasion can be safe for most skin types however anyone with inflammation such as acne, eczema or rosacea may not be a good candidate for this treatment. Talk to an advanced practice Esthetician if you are uncertain if this is a good option for you. Also be sure to avoid any topical exfoliating products such as active serum or retinol for 3 days prior to any exfoliating clinic treatment.

Discover Sculptra for a more youthful appearance

Hello everyone, It’s Taylor, RN from ReNew You Medical Spa in Elk River Minnesota. I am here to talk to you about using Sculptra Aesthetic for prejuvenation and rejuvenation!

What is Sculptra Aesthetic and how is it different from traditional hyaluronic acid dermal fillers? 

Sculptra Aesthetic is a bio-stimulatory product that is made up of poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), addressing collagen loss- a root cause of aging. Sculptra works with your body by stimulating your own natural collagen production. While hyaluronic acid dermal fillers correct the symptoms of facial aging, Sculptra addresses an underlying cause itself, lost collagen. Sculptra works within the deep dermis to replace lost collagen and reinforce skin structure. It can give you noticeable results that emerge subtly.

What is Collagen loss?

Collagen is a key structural component that keeps skin youthful looking and smooth. As we age, our body’s collagen production decreases.  Collagen and Elastin are the two components responsible for the elasticity, texture and appearance of our skin. Collagen loss begins in our 20’s and by the age of 45, we’ve lost up to 25%. During aging, collagen loss presents, over time, as deflated volume, fine lines, wrinkles, skin laxity, and thinning skin.

What type of downtime should I expect? 

This procedure has minimal downtime, immediately after you might experience some tenderness and swelling. Additionally, there is a possibility of bruising around the injection site which may last several days.

How many treatments do I need? 

Through a series of treatments, determined using the “vial per decade” protocol, Sculptra will begin to rebuild and reinforce your skins structural foundation to restore, support and volumize, providing a youthful appearance, lasting up to two years.

How do I get started? 

Whether you are just beginning your anti aging journey and looking for a preventative anti aging plan or if you are looking to take control of your current signs of aging we require a consultation with one of our health care providers to ensure the treatment is the right path to meet your specific goals.

BBL Forever bare hair uses broad spectrum of light to heat the hair follicles to therapeutic temperatures for safe and effective hair reduction. Forever bare hair is fast, easy with minimal discomfort. You can safely treat any area of your body. Treatments are gentle and non-invasive. The light energy is delivered to the hair follicles, all while keeping your surrounding tissue safe with minimal discomfort or no discomfort.

How many treatments do you need?

Most areas require 6-12 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart to achieve optimal hair reduction. Importance of staying on track with appointments is key for success with hair reduction.
Hair grows in 3 stages: anagen, catagen and telogen. Hair reduction technologies can only treat hairs in the anagen phase also known as the active growth phase. Since not all hairs are in the same growth stage at the same time a series of treatments is necessary.

How do I prepare for a hair removal treatment? 

  •  Avoidance of sun exposure and sunless tanner in the areas that will be treated is necessary.
  • Area to be treated should be clean shaven 12-24 hours prior to appointment.
  • No waxing or tweezing at least 4 weeks prior to appointment.
  • Hair should be dark and course, the broad band light will not reduce white or vellus hair.

Post Care Requirements

  • Minimal downtime, you may experience mild redness in the treated area, that dissipates within hours after treatment.
  • Avoidance of sun exposure and exercise for 24 hours is recommended.

How do I get started? 

We require a consultation before treatment. This will help us to ensure you are the right candidate.  Schedule your complimentary consultation by calling 763-515-6492 today!

Skin Tightening for the Face, Neck and Body

 

What is SkinTyte? 

The SkinTyte procedure utilizes infrared energy to deeply heat dermal collagen.  The heat also initiates the body’s natural healing process, which creates a renewed collagen foundation leading to increased skin firmness. Powerful cooling maintains the outer surface of your skin at a cool temperature before, during, and after each pulse. This provides the patient a comfortable and safe procedure.  Safe and optimized for all skin types.  As a result, SkinTyte can predictably, effectively, and comfortably treat any area of the body where improvement is desired. Most importantly this results in a firmer and more youthful appearance.

What causes skin laxity? 

  • Genetics and the natural aging process- As we age changes take place in the facial fat pads and bone causing the skin to sag, form folds and jowl. Additionally, our bodies produce less and less collagen as we age. Collagen production is essential for keeping our skin plump, firm and youthful.
  • Sun Exposure- The amount of UV exposure accumulated over a persons lifetime often contributes to the most damage to collagen and elastin fibers in the skins dermal layer. This contributes to accelerating sagging.
  • Pregnancy- Saggy postpartum skin typically presents around the breasts and abdomen, where the skin stretches during pregnancy.
  • Weight loss-Loose skin occurs as a result of major weight loss or constant weight loss and weight gain.

What type of downtime should I expect?

This is a non invasive treatment with no downtime. You may resume all normal activities immediately after.

How many treatments do I need?

We recommend a series of 6 treatments spaced 2 weeks apart. After your initial series consistency is key, we like adding on a SkinTyte to your regularly scheduled facials or quarterly ForeverYoung treatments to continue collagen production. Results are seen progressively over time as the collagen begins rebuilding and can last for up to two years.

What products do you recommend for skin laxity?

Your at home skin care routine is the one thing you can do everyday to improve the overall health and look of your skin. Consequently, an at home skin care routine will improve the outcome of your treatments. We recommend a dedicated skincare routine to include a sunscreen  applied daily to the face neck and chest, a retinol to help promote cell turnover and a specialty firming product such as revisions Nectifirm or BodiFirm.

How do I get started? 

Weather you are looking for pre-juvenation to help delay and prevent the aging process or you are looking to correct mild to moderate skin laxity we require a consultation to ensure the treatment is the right path to meet your skin care goals.

Call 763-515-6492 to schedule your complimentary consultation.

Botox and Fillers for Anti Aging

Hello everyone, It’s Taylor from ReNew You Medical Spa in Elk River Minnesota. I am here to talk to you about using cosmetic injectables for facial rejuvenation.

Both neurotoxin and filler serve as a powerful tool for facial rejuvenation.

Neurotoxins such as Botox and Dysport are injected strategically into targeted muscles to produce a temporary relaxation for roughly 3-4 months. Neurotoxins are FDA approved to treat forehead, frown, and crow’s feet lines. These lines and wrinkles can appear over years of repetitive facial expressions, exposure to the sun, lifestyle, and genetics. By relaxing muscle activity, our skin can relax, lift, and soften. Therefore, minimizing the appearance of superficial lines and preventing them from worsening.

Dermal fillers are made up of hyaluronic acid in the form of a gel. Fillers can replace lost volume, fill folds, soften lines and replenish hydration.

A youthful face depends on having the right amount of facial fat in the right places, as well as healthy bone structure. With increasing age, changes take place in the facial fat pads and bone. When you combine fat loss and bone loss with exposure to the sun, lifestyle and genetics, signs of aging can be accelerated. Common signs of facial volume loss present as folds, heaviness, hollowing, and dehydration. Unlike Botox, which affects muscle activity to minimize the appearance of wrinkles and lines, dermal fillers are a gel that is injected beneath the skin’s surface to treat areas of concern. They are primarily used to reverse signs of aging, enhance facial features, and sculpt the face to restore youthful volume.

Book Online or call 763-515-6492 for your complimentary consultation. Our expert providers will create a customized treatment plan based off of your individual concerns and goals!
