Are certifications important when buying beauty equipment?

Certifications can give you peace of mind that you are purchasing a product that has been independently tested and certified to pass established standards for your (and your client’s!) safety. There are several types of certifications, including, but not limited to, FDA, SFDA, KFDA, TUV, CE, and ISO. If a machine is not FDA certified doesn’t necessarily mean it’s no good! Other certifying agencies in the world apply the same or similar standards – some are even more stringent. Oftentimes, companies that distribute their product worldwide simply don’t want to spend the time or money it takes to get through the FDA process. So don’t judge a book by its certification cover – it still could be a great product!  Check out our site for a nice selection of FDA approved machines at http://www.photofacialmachines.com.

Acne Scars “Before treating an acne scar, first determine your specific needs,” says Miami dermatologist Frederic Brandt. His recommendations: If the scar is a discolored patch of red or brown, try a whitening lotion or an exfoliator with salicylic acid — both turn over cells to reveal fresher, less discolored skin. If the scar truly marks skin depressions, a more active approach is necessary. Visit your dermatologist for an in-office procedure such as laser resurfacing to aggressively change skin texture, or collagen injection, which will temporarily fill holes

Cellulite “Cellulite affects more than 90% of women,” says New York City plastic surgeon Stephen Greenberg. A skin condition that is directly related to hormone variations, cellulite tends to get worse as you age. Dimpling, or that orange peel look, occurs from fat cells that push up against the skin, while fluid pulls down the skin. Unfortunately diet  and exercise will have no effect on the appearance of cellulite unless use with a slimming machine. We suggest attacking the problem with Ultrasonic Cavitation treatment with a common sense diet and exercise , a safe non-invasive radio frequency procedure that has no downtime and is highly effective against the fight of Cellulite and body contouring as well.

What Truly Comes Out of a Women Looking Her Best at Every Cost? Is It Worth It? Youth Buy Happiness?

We have all seen so many ads on TV, heard the ads on the Radio and the Internet about women and staying young. As we are bombarded with these massages from as long as we can remember about how important it is for the women to look there best even if it mean risky surgery. This article will discuss what options you have to look your best into your 60′s.

The question is this: Does being what some would consider be vein make you happier then if you did not do anything proactive to prolong the effects of aging?

Some would argue that women now more then ever, as we are mired in our worst economic down turn in our lifetime need to stay competitive in the job market which means to stay fit and looking young and full of energy. Those who do no fit into this mindset may be left out of the mix.

Researchers have shown that a job with identical applicants the same credentials going for the same job, a whopping 82% of the time the younger better looking female will get that job. Fair? Of course not, and has created a society where looks may be perceived a better risk then a reliable, conservative persons who may only look like a housewife or doesn’t wish to be a barbie.

So we are down to the ultimate question we began with. Is going thru surgery and limited diets and everything involved in being one of the chosen few worth it???

Now of course money and genetics play a large part in this choice. But for those who have the choice in getting surgery and taking the high road are they happier?

We have all heard horror stories about botched surgeries and the risk we all take for the noble cause of looking younger. For those few sad stories the answer is obvious. Health is your number one goal in life not beauty. What is the best way to look younger and healthier without harmful treatments like Botox and risky surgeries.

With a good balance of healthy eating and exercise and control of your stress and use of non evasive machines like Led Light Therapy for younger looking skin without downtime or excessive cost as well is the way to look up to 10 years younger without any expensive dangerous procedures being done.

If you want to lose weight choose what millions are choosing today instead, Radio Frequency Machines with Ultrasonic Cavitation features. Which will safely without evasive surgery burn off the fat coupled with proper diet and exercise you will see a dramatic difference in the way your feel and love the results you will get.

How radio frequency works to reduce sagging skin.

The rejuvenation methods employing radio frequency are based on radio waves of certain frequency to penetrate and be absorbed by body tissues. The absorption of radio waves causes tissue heating as well as some structural molecular changes. 

The radio frequency treatment is usually delivered by placing an electrode onto the skin and applying alternating current of the required frequency. As a result, the skin is deep-treated with controlled doses of targeted radio waves. At the same time, the skin surface layer, consisting of the epidermis and upper dermis, may be cooled by a cryogenic spray to prevent open burns (especially when higher levels of energy delivery are employed). The treatment produces localized heat injury of the dermis and sub-dermal layer as well as the collagen contraction leading to skin tightening. The subsequent healing of the microscopic dermal and sub-dermal lesions causes further skin tightening and also reduces the depth of wrinkles. Notably, since the skin surface is preserved, the downtime after the procedure is relatively short.

In theory, this approach makes good sense. First, most of the ideas behind it have been in practical use for years. Such well-established rejuvenation methods as laser skin resurfacing,microdermabrasion and deep chemical peels, are partially based on skin remodeling following a controlled injury. Second, radio frequency tissue tightening is being used with reasonable success in other areas of medicine. For instance, endoscopic radio frequency devices are employed to tighten sphincters in the GI tract.

Mono polar radio frequency

Mono polar delivery of radio frequency for cosmetic rejuvenation is based on applying a single electrode to the treated area whereas the opposing electrode is relatively far removed so that the current goes deeply through the body. As a result, the tissue in the treated area is heated rather deeply (usually up to 20 mm) and intensely, which arguably increases both the potential benefits and risks. The more recent versions of mono-polar radio-frequency procedures are claimed to have an improved risk/benefit profile. Mono polar radio frequency is typically used to treat facial sag, skin laxity, and cellulite.

Bipolar delivery of radio frequency for cosmetic rejuvenation is based on applying two closely positioned electrodes to the treated area. The electric current that goes between the electrodes is relatively small and shallow. As a result, the tissue in the treated area is heated less deeply (usually up to 2-4 mm) and less intensely (compared to mono-polar RF devices). As a result, bipolar radio frequency procedures tend to be safer and gentler than the mono-polar ones. In particular, since bipolar RF effects are relatively shallow, there is less risk of the overheating and subsequent loss of facial fat, a side-effect sometimes seen after mono-polar treatments. Conversely, bipolar radio-frequency is less useful for indications when deep tissue heating may be desirable, such as cellulite treatment and sculpting.

Typically, a single bipolar RF treatment would produce less noticeable results than a monopolar one. Hence bipolar RF procedures are often done in a series of several treatments whose benefits are believed to be cumulative.

Mono polar plus bipolar radio frequency (Tripolar, Accent RF Mono-polar/Bipolar)

Since mono-polar and bipolar radio frequency treatments appear somewhat complimentary, some rejuvenation devices combine both. In particular device has both mono polar and bipolar electrodes on the same hand-piece. The manufacturer claims that their special algorithms of simultaneous application of mono polar and bipolar RF to the treated area reduce the side effects while maximizing the benefits. The Accent RF device has separate mono polar and bipolar hand-pieces, which the physician can use sequentially in the same treatment session.

Radio Frequency Facts

Both mono polar and bipolar radio frequency are used for tissue tightening. Their effects are somewhat complementary because they deliver energy in different patterns and to different depth. Combining mono-polar and bipolar radio-frequency allows reduce the required intensity of each and thus minimize side effects and possibly increase effectiveness (as compared to each type of radio-frequency used alone). The combination of mono-polar and bipolar radio-frequency has been used for skin tightening, facial contouring, body sculpting and cellulite reduction.

Details:
Mono polar and bipolar radio-frequency (RF) are the modes in which radio frequency can be used in medicine and cosmetic. They can also be used in combination. As far as cosmetic rejuvenation is concerned, mono polar and bipolar radio frequency treatments appear somewhat complimentary.

Mono polar RF heats tissue in the treated area is heated rather deeply (usually up to 20 mm) and thus affects both the skin and subcutaneous fat. Bipolar RF heats the tissue in the treated area less deeply (usually up to 2-4 mm) and thus primarily affects the skin. The patterns if energy distribution also differ. Whether simultaneous treatment with both types of RF is additive, synergistic or otherwise in not entirely clear and needs further research. The manufacturers of mono polar+bipolar devices believe that such combination is synergistic and allows to reduce the required intensity of each and thus minimize side effects and possibly increase effectiveness.

Tripolar combines the electrodes for the mono-polar and bipolar RF application in the same hand piece. It also utilizes sophisticated control algorithms for optimizing the concurrent application of the two types of RF as well as tailoring the output to a particular patient and treatment goal.

According to Pollogen corporation, Tri Polar RF Technology has the following advantages [as quoted from their materials]:

 

  • Treatment is not painful -Tri Polar RF technology focuses the RF energy right where it is needed requiring much lower energy than other RF technologies, thus avoiding the associated pain for the client.
  • Treatment of both superficial and deeper fat layers – The Tri Polar RF technology uses sophisticated algorithms to control the treatment electrodes varying the current and polarity to achieve variable energy focus in different fat layers resulting in visible clinical results from the first treatment.
  • Selective heating of fat tissue – The TriPollar RF technology directs energy selectively to fat tissue avoiding heating to other tissues thus achieving better clinical results.
  • No cooling of skin or applicator is needed – The Tri Polar RF configuration and sophisticated control algorithm eliminates the need for skin and applicator cooling resulting in more efficient treatment and requires less treatment sessions.
  • Fewer treatment sessions -Tripolar RF technology delivers focused energy achieving better and faster results.
  • Light technology not required – applicable for all skin types and colors.

Invisible Details About Microdermabrasion

As much as you read and hear about what microdermabrasion machine treatments are and what it can do-that they take care of the complications on the skin’s surface area or its uppermost layers, which include face lines, blemishes, trapped oils together with other harmful particles-there is the one other thing it covers that is often forgotten.

As much as you read and hear about what microdermabrasion machine treatments are and what it can do-that they take care of the complications on the skin’s surface area or its uppermost layers, which include face lines, blemishes, trapped oils together with other harmful particles-there is the one other thing it covers that is often forgotten.

The face is a person’s “business card” of forms. Although we do not, it’s wired in our systems to accept a basic visual analysis of whoever we’re working with. And it’s not only for their faces, it involves the entire package, the way they carry on their own, and often, even the way they are dressed. A person’s self-esteem or confidence can make an impact on all that.

Acquiring microdermabrasion machine treatments to help you remove old scars which make you feel self-conscious is good. It’s a step toward enhancing yourself that goes beyond just becoming vain. It’s not only going to be about looking an unusual way but about getting over a obstacle and getting your full prospective.

A lot of younger people today, in particular those new to the work market and are out there occurring countless rounds of interviews and therefore are particularly anxious to show their faces to interviewers. And yet, the absence of self confidence generally is due to their youth and lack of experience and it is unbelievably compounded by their low self-esteem through their skin.

The same holds true for people with other skin problems. Despite the fact that blemishes and old acne scars are the more common instances, they aren’t the only ones. Those people who are a little bit more mature, suffer the emotional or psychological consequence of their very own skin worries too. There are individuals who work in industries where seeking a specific way is a necessity. Since fine lines and wrinkles need to be kept away fro so long as possible. For those of you that wish to age gracefully, they prefer to take care of their skin by getting usual microdermabrasion machines, having a healthy and balanced life-style. By doing this, they’re able to handle the strain of their professional existence without getting too burned out by it. Using the good care and a little bit of help, “facing” life is actually really easy. http://www.photofacailmachines.com

Microdermabrasion Chemical Peels?

In this article, you’ll understand if you are a candidate for  microdermabrasion chemical peels.

Chemical peels and microdermabrasions total different treatment.  Among these similarities are, how they work and the skin. Both of them scrape the outer layer of skin. Light scraping removes scars, dead skin cells and debris. However, a side note, they vary by body part and condition of the skin treated with severity.

Microdermabrasion is an exfoliation method is kind of a mechanical nature. Microcrystals are used, a gentle skin exfoliation, light as a stronger acid solution used for skin exfoliation with chemicals. Microdermabrasion, otherwise known as the “South Face” is an effective treatment of superficial skin imperfections fine lines, clogged pores, enlarged pores, sun spots, wrinkles and mild scarring due to acne treatment, for example. The procedure usually requires treatment 3 or 4 sessions for best results with scaring issues.

On the other hand, chemical peels are more effective than microdermabrasion treatment of serious skin problems. These peels work effectively deeper scars, age spots, hyperpigmentation, wrinkles. This method of treatment are being sold on the market in different concentrations and strengths. For this reason, the proper orientation for a given chemical peel is very important. Skin problems are less severe effects, including mild scarring, but with less intensity and concentration, which contain chemical peels. In addition, the deep-seated scars and so requires greater strength and chemical concentration.
Can be made both peels and microdermabrasion in the hospital, at home or somewhere comfortable and safe to administer. There are different types of chemical peels, which are sold in the market. Examples of these peels are glycolic acid peels, lactic acid peels, and phenol acid peels, but these three examples mentioned does not recommend the use of household cleaning chemical peels. Other chemical peels, as well as of natural formulas.

Recovery time microdermabrasion only need a few hours to several days. Peel, needed for recovery last much longer and depends on the concentration of the chemicals and power. Is the peel, take 2 weeks of recovery time 1, but there are other peel for up to 3 months.

Both of these methods can be applied to the face, back, neck, arms and chest. Required treatment time is 30 minutes of face and neck and chest for 1 hour. See also microdermabrasion before and after photos and video clips, visual information. Read the full article, you’re still thinking about microdermabrasion chemical peels?

Pros and Cons of Electrolysis

A plethora of hair removal systems are out there, but all have their pros and cons. For some people who want to get rid of hair in places where there shouldn”t be any, or for those who suffer from coarse, stubborn hairs that won”t go away no matter how many times they are removed, electrolysis may be the answer.

What is Electrolysis?
One of the oldest hair removal techniques, it was reportedly discovered in 1875, when a certain Dr Charles Michel used it to remove ingrown eyelashes. His discovery, by today”s standards, was fairly simple yet nonetheless considered completely revolutionary: he found that hair in follicles treated by electrolysis was destroyed ? virtually permanently.

Electrolysis works in a straightforward fashion: a small amount of energy is passed through a needle into the follicle, producing heat which destroys cells at the base which are those responsible for producing hair. The result, however, is far from instant: in most cases, in order for the procedure to work the process must be repeated several times.

Currently, three types of electrolysis are on the market today. They are:

Galvanic. This is the original method developed by Dr Michel. The needle interacts with the body”s salts and an electro-chemical current and a lye is produced which kills off hair. Achieves good results but is slow, however, it is said to have the best track record as far as hair regrowth is concerned.

Thermolysis. Produces a faster heat using a short-wave diathermy current but with less thorough results than galvanic electrolysis. In a nutshell, the needle passes an AC current through the water, which causes a vibration causing it to heat up and therefore damage the follicle. Ain”t science wonderful?

Blend. As the name suggests, this type of electrolysis is one that swings both ways, passing both an AC and a DC current through the needle.

Be aware that no matter what type of electrolysis you choose, often the result will depend on the skill of the practitioner, preferably a cosmetic dermatologist. You will need to find someone with a proven track record who has successfully performed electrolysis countless times for best results. If possible, ask to speak to previous clients to see how they rate their experience. Also, be aware that follicles which are bent due to previous tweezing or waxing may not fare as well.

Pros of Electrolysis
Lasts a lot longer than waxing, plucking or shaving.
Can even (eventually) lead to permanent hair removal in some cases, and in some areas.
Is suitable for all hair and skin types as it does not target the pigment in hair, unlike lasers.
Is better in most cases than laser hair removal as the latter is almost always accompanied by hair regrowth (but electrolysis is considerably slower and more painful).

Cons of Electrolysis
Can be painful. Some people find it mildly irritating and uncomfortable, others find it hurts excessively. Depends on your own pain threshold but remember, no pain, no gain.
Can be expensive. Ask around to find a reasonable price, which will also depend on the size of the area you want treated, whether you will need to have loads of repeat sessions etc.
Can be time-consuming, difficult and even boring when large amounts of hair are involved, for example, when trying to tame a very hairy back.
When done improperly, can lead to regrowth, skin damage and infection. Minimize risks by making sure the technician is a qualified one (see above) and wears surgical gloves and uses disposable needles. Redness, swelling and even scabs are too be expected, so don”t be too freaked out by some (temporary) unpleasant side-effects.
Some people waste money as they find they don”t respond to treatment at all.
Some find there is a lot of hair regrowth. This is common in the pubic area and under the arms; going back once or twice a year for a tidy-up should do the trick.
Is not recommended for specific potentially hirsute parts of the body, such as the nostrils or inside of the ear. Is also not for hairy moles.

What About Do-It-Yourself Electrolysis?
Not recommended. While many people are tempted to buy a DIY kit because they are cheaper and you can perform the electrolysis in the privacy of your own home, the drawbacks are many. The process is extremely time-consuming and without the proper training you can do yourself some serious skin damage.

In fact, the American Medical Association”s Committee on Cutaneous Health and Cosmetics only recommends home kits when doing areas such as the lower legs, which are readily accessible. The hard and fast rule is: if you have to strain to see the area, don”t treat it yourself.

Other considerations concern expense, saying that home kits are a false economy. They only last so long, and if you have a lot of hair to remove you may burn one out before you are finished, therefore having to purchase more kits. In the long run, going to a salon or med spa may be cheaper ? unless, of course, you buy a do-it-yourself kit just to zap the stray hair a trained professional has missed.

Make Up Your Own Mind
The debate over electrolysis vs lasers for permanent hair removal is an ongoing one, and you will have to see what is best for you. Obviously, that will depend on a variety of factors, such as your own hair and skin type, the expanse of the area you want treated, your personal pain threshold and the state of your wallet. In some cases, it may make more sense ? and cents ? to just continue waxing and plucking away those unwanted hairs.

If you decide that visiting a med spa is the best option for you, make sure you choose a trained practitioner with lots of experience. Having a small area done first then checking the results in several months” time to see how you respond to treatment is also a good idea. Then again, those Julia Roberts-style hairy armpits may soon be back in vogue…

Are You Aware of Cosmetic Surgery Risks?

Cosmetic surgery is something that tends to take many years off one”s skin in a matter of a short time While there are other treatments available for a younger looking skin, the fact remains that cosmetic surgery has faster results that are also more long lasting
Cosmetic surgery is something that tends to take many years off one”s skin in a matter of a short time. While there are other treatments available for a younger looking skin, the fact remains that cosmetic surgery has faster results that are also more long lasting. When we consider cosmetic surgery, it seems not only dramatic, but is also costly, all the while being something that has its own risks and consequences.

Many people get cosmetic surgery because they are not satisfied with their appearance and want to boost their self-esteem by getting a better body shape and improved physical appearance. And while wanting to do all this, people usually ignore the possible risks that are associated with the procedure and also the consequences.

One important fact is that cosmetic surgery does not offer perfection, just improvement. So it is good to be clear about that limitation. The procedure is lengthy and the recovery also takes time. And in spite of cost involved, you are still exposed to potential risks. The risk that has to be most obvious one is that the result might not be what you expect and your health is also at risk.

There are certain complications that can occur if you have lung disease, or you have cardiovascular disease. Other than obesity, it also exposes you to certain complications. These include the possibility of having a stroke or a heart attack. Other than that there is also the danger of having pneumonia and blood clots can form in one”s lungs or legs. These complications are not the only ones that one is exposed to. There are also surgical complications associated with cosmetic surgery. There is the risk that clear fluid may get accumulated beneath the incision. Other than that there is also the danger of blood getting collected beneath the hematoma, which is the closed incision.

For the people who smoke, there is the risk that the blood circulation might be poor and the skin may breakdown. There is also a great risk of getting the site of surgery infected. This makes the process even lengthier and the removal of infection would require additional surgeries. These surgeries, however, can lead to more scars that would be bigger and would take a lot of recovery time. Other than the visible physical risks, there are also risks associated with psychological changes. One may remain under mental stress after the surgery during the healing time and may also have problems coming to terms with the physical effects of the surgery.

If, due to the risks associated with cosmetic surgery, you want to look for an alternative way for the revitalization of your skin, there is an alternative that is less dramatic and is also safe as well as painless. The recommended alternative is Galvanic current, which is a technology that has long-term benefits and is gentle and can be done even at home. It is also free of the complications and risks associated with cosmetic surgery, and guarantee a younger you.

Everyone knows that there are cosmetic surgery risks but people tend to ignore it which in itself becomes a problem over time. Cosmetic surgery risks should be carefully explained and understood as changes are permanent in nature.
