Glycolic & Your Skin

Powerhouse ingredients like Glycolic are a great addition to your skin care regimen. Glycolic acid is an alpha-hydroxy-acid (AHA) derived from sugarcane and is part of a group of acids that are extracted from natural sources. Glycolic acid is one of the most popular AHA’s and is commonly used as an exfoliant to remove the build-up of dead skin cells. It works by dissolving the oil that holds dead skin cells on the skin’s surface.

Glycolic acid is the most useful AHA for cosmetic treatments because of its small molecular structure that allows for greater penetration in the skin. Spa treatments with glycolic work to refine your skins texture. Glycolic accelerates exfoliation and helps to stimulate the skin cell renewal process. By shedding dead skin cells and speeding up the regeneration of new, fresh skin cells, pores will be decongested, uneven skin tone brightened and the skin will appear more firm. 

For smooth skin on the body, a body wash formulated with glycolic acid will clarify and soften the skin. A formulation such as the Institut' DERMed Enhancing Glycolic Body Wash includes shea butter in the ingredient deck to nourish and increase skin softness. After showering applying a glycolic lotion helps to reduce dry, patchy areas and small bumps on the body.  

The Enhancing Glycolic body Wash is actually a mild body peel that the client can give to themselves at home. It helps rejuvenate the skin by encouraging the shedding of old and damaged, surface skin cells. It helps reduce the appearance of acne conditions on the chest and the back. It improves skin tone and helps to reduce the appearance of dark skin spots.  The Enhancing Glycolic Body Lotion contains Apricot kernel oil, a very light and gentle oil used in creams and lotions to balance, nourish, rehydrate and lubricate the skin. It’s rich in gamma linoleic acid and vitamin A and E, which soothe the skin and help to slow the signs of aging. This combination of ingredients means that dead skin cells are gently removed from dry skin and the right level of moisture is maintained.

You may experience a rosy flush or feel a slight tingle after using these products and that's perfectly normal. Glycolic products and treatments can have amazing benefits for your skin, consult with your esthetician on the best skin care ingredients for your skin type and condition.

Skin Hydration

Strengthening your skin’s ability to retain moisture is the key to youthful looking skin.  Understanding your skin's natural moisture level is understanding that it can fluctuate depending on your skin type and the kind of environmental exposures your skin is exposed to. The lipid layer of your skin is designed to keep moisture in and keep irritants out so when it comes to your skin how hydrated or dehydrated your skin is and looks, depends on holding on to that moisture as much as possible.

There's no doubt that the more hydrated your skin is, the more youthful it will look and the better it will feel. Certain ingredients in your skin care products are powerhouse moisture retention aids. If skin dehydration is an issue for you (or you want to help prevent the dehydration that can come with aging skin) look for these ingredients in your product choices:

Hyaluronic Acid and Green Tea Extracts in your cleanser will help to prevent dehydration.

PhytoCellTec™ Symphytum (comfrey stem cells) and Phytic Acid add deep cell hydration that plumps the cells helping to make them look and act lifted and younger.
Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) and Spin Trap proteins help to prevent the water loss that is a side effect of natural aging.

For  oily skin Sodium Hyaluronate helps to bind water to the skin’s cells. This ingredient in a moisturizing formulation is like giving oily skin a big drink of water, not oil.

For people with excessively oily skin conditions that need the benefits of acne fighting ingredients as well as hydration a combination of Pythic Acid, grapefruit  peel oil and Ascorbic Acid combined in a serum will hydrate without feeling like you're adding oil on oil.

Rose hip seed oil is a powerful anti-aging tool. It quickly absorbs into the skin replenishing moisture and creates a protective barrier on the skin to help prevent dehydration.

Lactic acid is a naturally occurring humectant for the skin helping to keep skin hydrated. As you can imagine body lotion containing this ingredient create a soft, smooth texture you'll love.

Shea butter increases cellular hydration & moisture retention.

A skin care regimen containing these key ingredients will very effectively boost the moisture levels in your skin.

For a simple and quick fix focus on layering a serum with a moisturizer to create beautifully nourished skin.

Institut’ DERMed Spa first in Atlanta with INTRAcel Fractional RF Microneedle, FRM™.


Institut Dermed Spa launches an all new Collagen Production Therapy treatment:

 

The INTRAcel Fractional RadioFrequency Microneedling, FRM™ treatment for advanced beauty enhancement and skin tightening.

Institut' DERMed Spa is one of only a few places in the country to be performing the revolutionary INTRAcel Collagen Production treatment originating from South Korea. INTRAcel uses fractional radio frequency combined with insulated micro-needles to treat wrinkles, sagging jawlines, neck, crow’s feet, acne scars, various skin irregularities and the reduction of stretch marks.

INTRAcel uniquely treats the target area through rapid penetration of specially designed insulated micro-needles without causing damage to the epidermis. The RadioFrequency energy transmitted stimulates fibroblasts resulting in the production of new collagen. The treatment is suitable for all skin types and tones.

Founder of Institut' DERMed, Lyn Ross, L.M.E., is very excited about the addition of the INTRAcel RF technology to address the skin care needs of the Spa's highly engaged clientele. "I have done much research in the arena of MicroNeedling and Radio Frequency and to have a modality that combines both and has demonstrated such visible results is really exciting", Ross said. "No other system offers real-time monitoring of the treatment to ensure optimum treatment parameters are delivered and we can select and combine the ideal energy needed to achieve the best results. It's really remarkable".

INTRAcel has 4 Modes to treat any skin layer: FRM monopolar, FRM Bipolar, SRR Superficial and T-Mode -Topical Non-Rf treatments; no other system can offer the range of power, modalities, features and benefits of INTRAcel.

You can see immediate results from the INTRAcel treatment as the face is gently lifted and specific problem areas targeted, and this tightening and lifting keeps improving over time as more collagen is produced. Subtle changes include fuller cheeks, tighter jawline, lines are softer and pores appear smaller.

There is minimal downtime after an INTRAcel treatment which is one of the reasons it is so popular!

A course of three treatments four weeks apart is recommended for optimum results.
