Perricone MD Acyl-Glutathione

Published on by

Introducing the newest anti-aging product from Dr. Perricone: Perricone MD Acyl-Glutathione.

Acyl-Glutathione is the first patent-pending skincare treatment to reduce the appearance of creases. When applied twice daily customers have seen dramatic results in just 30 days in forehead, smile, brow, and marionette creases:

Glutathione (glue-ta-thigh-on) or otherwise known as GSH is considered a super antioxidant that helps our bodies fight off toxins that are associated with environmental pollution, poor diet,  and stress. Glutathione is actually a protein that is naturally produced in our bodies but healthy levels are depleted due to an increase of toxins in the body and as we age.
Glutathione boosts the immune system, detoxifies the body and acts as a powerful antioxidant. Without glutathione in our bodies, other antioxidants such has vitamins C and E are not as effective and can not do their job properly. Glutathione will help to slow down the skin’s aging process by protecting the skin from free radical damage.

Perricone MD Acyl-Glutathione will help to diminish fine lines and wrinkles, firm and tighten the skin while reducing pore size and improving the texture of the skin. It will also help to hydrate the skin while retaining moisture, and adding radiance to the skin. Perhaps the most noticeable difference in the skin is the reduction of facial creases in the forehead area, smile, and marionette lines. Acyl-Glutathione also contains Dr. Perricone’s key DMAE complex to help tighten and firm the skin. Other key ingredients include squalane, glycolic acid, alpha-lipoic acid, and a blend of peptides.

Use this product as a preventative and corrective treatment to improve the overall health and condition of your skin.

Dermelect Rose Stem Cell Technology

Published on by

Dermelect Cosmecuticals has been formulated jointly by medical professionals and licensed estheticians who believe in products that give you real results. After three years of research renowned industry leaders bring you new stem cell technology, and the results are remarkable.

Dermelect believes that stem cells are the future of skin care. Because so many of us are affected by aging, stem cells can help combat the visible signs of aging and reverse already-existing damage.  Dermelect uses stem cells from the Swiss Alpine Rose. An alpine rose is able to thrive and grow remarkably well in the most extreme conditions, such as drought, sun exposure, and severe cold. Our cells are very important because they control the formation, maintenance, renewal and repair of the entire skin, our largest organ. Unfortunately, humans have a limited stem cell capacity, as we age our skin loses its and its ability to produce healthy tissue. Alpine Rose stem cells help to repair tissue, inhibit inflammation, and protect the skin from UV oxidative stress. The stem cells also address discoloration and loss of collagen because they fight off destructive free radicals to help protect the skin.

Dermelect has formulated 3 key products with stem cell technology that work synergistically together to address the top beauty concerns such as aging skin, wrinkles, and fine lines. The three tiered products are: Resurface Stem Cell Reconstructing Serum, Resilient Stem Cell Regenerating Treatment, and the Resurgent Stem Cell Firming Activator. The key ingredients for all three products are alpine rose, alpha hydroxyl acid, vitamin C, and EcoSkin. EcoSkin is a patented ingredient that works to stimulate the skin’s natural defense and promote tissue repair and protein production.

A 17 day study by Dermelect showed 45% of wrinkles were less visible and the complexion was 54% more radiant. Dermelect believes in an easy and effective skin care approach that will address targeted concerns while using cutting edge ingredients. The products can offer real solutions for anyone with aging skin or those who wants to preserve the health and condition of their skin.

We’ll have some exciting stuff on our Facebook page soon (hint: BIG Dermelect giveaway news!) So make sure that you’re our Facebook friend & stay tuned for something wonderful!

Juice Beauty Stem Cellular Repair

Published on by

A stem cell is an unspecialized cell that has the capacity to renew itself, or to replace dying, worn out cells. When a stem cell divides it has the potential to become a different type of a cell, like a brain cell or a skin cell, or it can remain a stem cell for the course of its life and work in the gut or in the bone marrow. Every life; human, animal, or plant, starts with a stem cell. And just like you and I came from stem cells, so do fruits and flowers and every living thing on this planet. Stem cell research continues to get savvier day by day and scientists are discovering that plant stem cells can play a huge role in the human system too, especially in the skin. Juice Beauty, a pioneer in the freshest and purest nature and science synergy, has launched two plant stem cell based products and they’re definitely sure to please.

Juice Beauty Stem Cellular Repair Moisturizer is a reparative hydrator that’s suitable for all skin types. Completely waterless, this moisturizer contains a potent blend of organic fruit stem cells and vitamin C to decrease DNA damage that occurs from daily aggressors. The fruit stem cells are absorbed deeply into the skin to encourage repair and cell regeneration, while a multi-vitamin base stimulates collagen production and skin resilience. Additionally, fatty acids encourage elasticity and impart deep hydration. The result? Fresh, moist, dewy, glowing skin that looks and feels smooth and healthy. After using this product for three weeks both morning and evening I’ve found that I no longer need foundation. My skin is smooth, radiant, and even-toned, and I have no sensitivity, irritation or breakouts post-use.

Juice Beauty Stem Cellular Repair Eye Treatment is another brand new fruit stem cell based product that’s quickly becoming a customer favorite. This light-weight formula is great for both morning and evening use. It helps to reduce the appearance of crow’s feet while nourishing and protecting the delicate eye tissue. The essential fatty acids hydrate while vitamin C brightens and tightens. I’ve found the formula to be light-weight and extremely smooth… great for layering under concealer. My eye area appears brighter and tighter, and my much-too-sensitive eyes are not one bit irritated or red.

I’ll be the first to tell you that as complicated as stem cell research sounds, it’s definitely an amazing thing, especially when it comes to skin! Our skin is the largest organ and it requires extra special care. When your skin looks good, you feel good… no doubt about it!

The NEW Baby Quasar MD

Published on by

Baby Quasar, one of the most innovative anti-aging companies has developed a brand new device, the Baby Quasar MD.

The new Baby Quasar MD is 3x more powerful and more effective than the original, so you will be able to achieve professional results in half the time. It is the most powerful and effective consumer device available, and was previously only used in medical facilities.

The device works by emitting infrared light and four different wavelengths that stimulating your skin to increase blood flow and circulation. As the skin ages it produces less collagen and hyaluronic acid which will make the skin deteriorate over time. The Baby Quasar MD will generate the production of new collagen which will improve the overall condition of your skin. It will soothe and heal the skin, it will also firm, treat large pores, reduce wrinkles and hyperpigmentation. You can also use the device on the green mode for up to 12 minutes at a time, to treat pain such as arthritis, sprains, and wounds.

The new MD is just as easy to use as the original and just as portable. The MD has three settings, an orange LED low for sensitive skin, red LED high for normal skin, and a continuous wave green setting which is the highest power setting to increase blood flow and circulation. There is an indicator light on top of the device which will indicate which mode you are in.

When you begin using the Baby Quasar MD treatment you will want to make sure your skin is clean with no makeup or skin care products except for a hydrating serum. You will also want to remove any jewelry. The Baby Quasar pure silk is recommended to use in conjunction with your quasar before you begin treatment. Visually divide your face in 6 different sections and use the device for 2 minutes on each area of the face. The device will beep when it’s time to move to a different area of the face.

Rather then using the device 2-3 times per week with the original Baby Quasar, it’s recommended that you use the Baby Quasar MD only once per week for 24-36 minutes per treatment. Because of the strength you can use the Quasar MD up to two times per week; this will allow your skin enough time to regenerate and to prevent dryness from overuse. To clean the Baby Quasar you can use a cotton pad with alcohol or hydrogen peroxide after each use.

The Baby Quasar MD can be used on all skin types, it is Dermatologist recommended, and is FDA approved and accepted. The quasar will make a great addition to any skin care regimen because it will boost the benefits of any products you are already using. If you have any medical concerns we suggest first consulting your doctor or dermatologist before using this device.

Wrinkle Warfare with Perricone MD

Published on by

Waging war against wrinkles? Don’t admit defeat, it’s time to pull together your resources and strategize a plan of attack. According to Nicholas V. Perricone, MD, “Wrinkled, sagging skin is not the inevitable result of growing older. It is a disease and you can fight it.”

Dr. Perricone addresses the signs of aging in a three tiered approach with an anti-inflammatory diet, nutritional supplements, and topical anti-oxidants. All elements are designed to work synergistically promoting optimum health for your skin, body and mind.

An anti-inflammatory diet consists of high-quality protein, like that found in poultry, fish, shellfish and tofu, low-glycemic carbohydrates such as colorful fresh fruits and vegetables and whole grains like beans, lentils, legumes and old-fashioned oatmeal. Additionally, healthy fats especially those found in salmon, halibut, herring, nuts, seeds, and olive oil are essential to the diet. It’s also crucial to keep the body hydrated by drinking 8-10 glasses of water a day and beverages that are high in antioxidants such as green tea.

Nutritional supplements provide a broad spectrum of vitamins and minerals that are essential to help your skin look its best and should be a staple in every woman’s anti-aging regimen. Dr. Perricone carries his own range of supplements that enhance the benefits of his topical products for maximum results.

The last weapon in Perricone’s anti-aging arsenal is topical treatments. Perricone has a barrage of products that address every concern. Some of his most touted products include:
Perricone MD Deep Wrinkle Serum , whic smoothes and relaxes deep lines and wrinkles for a botox like effect with a unique peptide complex. Elasticity is increased and the skin’s texture is more smooth and supple.
Perricone MD Firming Neck Therapy, which improves skin firmness and elasticity, reducing the appearance of lines, wrinkles, and neck skin creases. The skin is toned, tightened, and hydrated.
Perricone MD Cold Plasma is a revolutionary anti-aging product the addresses the 10 visible signs of aging all in one product: firmness, elasticity, clarity, radiance, smoothness, texture, redness, blotchiness, fine lines and wrinkles, and dryness. The skin is lifted and firm with DMAE, which stimulates nerve function, causing muscles under the skin to contract and tighten, preventing sagging skin.

Taunted as the elixir of youth, this powerful spritzer smoothes, soothes, tightens pores, softens, hydrates, rejuvenates and adds radiance to dull, lackluster skin. It also works as an astringent post-cleanse, and helps to pull active ingredients from your Premier Cru deeper into the epidermis. Keep a bottle in your vanity cabinet to use before moisturizing, and keep another bottle in your purse for a midday pick-me-up. If you wear mineral make-up, just spritz on a bit of Beauty Elixir post application to set the powder and give the skin a dewy glow.
