We all know that exercise is critical to our health. From a long walk around your neighborhood to gym classes to marathon running to bicycling to work—exercise improves circulation, promotes cardiovascular health, helps reduce stress, deepens sleep, and is even purported to help increase libido! But did you know that exercise is also good for the complexion, as well? Here’s how exercise will help keep your skin looking youthful and glowing.
Introducing Kybella, Norah Clair Aesthetics latest professional skin treatment offering. The first (and only!) FDA approved procedure for the treatment of fat under the chin, often called a ‘double chin’, Kybella is an injectable treatment that targets and destroys fat cells for a sleeker, more sculpted appearance. Made from synthetic deoxycholic acid—a molecule that occurs naturally in the body and is known to aid in the breakdown of dietary fat—Kybella provides impressive, long-term results in this area of stubborn, hard-to-lose fat.
Walk down any beauty aisle and chances are you’ll spot dozens of body creams claiming to help reduce the appearance of cellulite—that dimpled, orange-peel textured skin often found on the butt and thighs of women of every age. Now, say goodbye to those creams, and say hello to the Cellfina System, an FDA approved cellulite treatment that is proven to help refine the look of orange-peel skin on the thighs and buttocks for up to three years after only one treatment.
First, let’s talk about cellulite. For all that cellulite sounds evil, it is actually nothing more than normal fat deposits in the body. Unfortunately, when this fat pushes against connective tissues in the skin, it causes that telltale lumpy, orange-peel texture. And although cellulite does mainly affects women, it has nothing to do with weight, and even someone who is very thin can struggle with cellulite. But now, that struggle can be over.
Cellfina is the only FDA-cleared procedure clinically proven to help minimize and smooth the appearance of cellulite. Unlike topical creams, which can only work on the surface of the skin, Cellfina is a minimally-invasive cellulite treatment that actually works on the underlying structural cause of cellulite itself—the connective tissue—with no negative side-effects. The procedure takes about one hour, and most people see initial results after only one treatment, and long-term results for at least three years!
If you have cellulite and are ready to see real results that last, call me today for your complimentary Cellfina consultation. In just one hour, your cellulite can be a memory.
1. Do you have hyperpigmentation (dark spots), freckles, or other skin pigment issues you want corrected? If yes, then IPL may be the perfect option for your skin. As we discussed here, IPL uses specific wavelengths of light to target skin discoloration. That means the appearance of dark spots, freckles, and even redness is diminished, leaving behind a clear, uniform complexion.
For all the great outcomes my friends and patients tell me they see with their favorite creams, serums, scrubs, and treatments, there’s one area of the body which nearly all of them say could use some extra TLC—their neck and chin.
Enter Ultherapy, a non-surgical lifting procedure for the neck area that picks up where creams and serums leave off.
In the world of professional skin treatments, chemicals peels are the grandmother of them all. First introduced in the late 1800’s, doctors have been using different chemical peeling agents to improve the overall appearance of the skin, remove freckles and dark spots, smooth uneven skin texture, and even help reduce the depth and intensity of fine lines and wrinkles. Today, chemical peels are a sophisticated, highly effective method of rejuvenating the skin for people of all ages, and with varying skin concerns.
The holiday season is in full swing, which means many of us are busy shopping for gifts, or frantically thinking about what to buy. This year, why not give a holiday gift that will keep on giving for years to come: the gift of healthy skin with medical grade skincare.
Holiday season is upon us and that means one thing: holiday parties! Along with a sexy new dress and sparkly holiday stilettos, one of your best accessories is gorgeous skin. At Norah Clair Aesthetics, healthy, youthful skin is our specialty, and we offer a variety of professional skin treatments to help you get that holiday glow in no time flat.
If you’ve been considering a laser skin treatment to give your complexion a boost, we have just the boost you need: the Clear + Brilliant laser. A more gentle form of laser rejuvenation than traditional lasers, Clear + Brilliant is a safe, non-surgical and non-invasive laser therapy, designed to be used in conjunction with your regular skincare regimen, that helps fight the natural effects of aging, and leaves skin with a noticeable rosy glow.
For many women (and men!), it’s an unfortunate side-effect of age that wrinkles and lines become more noticeable, and skin begins to look hollow or worse—sag, particularly around the lips. Now you have a new option to combat these unwelcome guests. Norah Clair Aesthetics is excited to offer one of the latest lip volumizing and enhancing products on the market: VOLBELLA®.
Part of the Juvéderm® family of dermal fillers, VOLBELLA is a cosmetic skin therapy that helps increase fullness and soften those pesky fine lines that form around the lips. A clear, pliable gel that has Lidocaine to increase comfort during treatments, VOLBELLA also contains hyaluronic acid (HA)—a naturally hydrating substance and humectant that attracts and holds moisture in the skin. When used together, this combination smooth gel and HA plumps up lines and wrinkles while also helping the skin to retain moisture. What does that mean for you? Lips that look remarkable full, smooth, and supple.
Like all dermal fillers, VOLBELLA is injected using an ultra-fine needle which means minimal swelling or sensitivity. And because there is very little downtime with this kind of cosmetic skin treatment, expect to see smoother, fuller lips almost immediately. And, for some, results may be seen for up to one year!
If you have been considering lip fillers, let me show you the beautiful benefits of VOLBELLA today! Contact me for your complimentary consultation at 800-652-7002 or online.
Whether from acne or a bug bite or an accident, scars can be frustrating and annoying, particularly if they are deep and very obvious. But with the right professional skin treatment, the appearance of scars can be greatly reduced or in some cases, seemingly disappear!
Halloween is here and along with it, a professional skin treatment even Elvira herself would approve of: Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP), or the Vampire Facial, as it’s sometimes called. A treatment which utilizes the many healing properties found naturally in your own blood, PRP may help improve the appearance of a host of skin concerns, as well as help heal more significant injuries to the body, such as bone and soft tissue injuries.
For anyone looking for increased volume and fullness, Juvéderm dermal filler is an ideal cosmetic skin treatment. A quick and very effective treatment, Juvéderm creates long-lasting, natural looking results which feel just like your natural skin, only better. Cheeks will be lifted and sculpted, wrinkles and fine lines softened and smoothed out, and lips full and sexy.
