Lighting The Way To Healthier Skin

What is Light Therapy?

Phototherapy, or the use of various types of light sources to treat medical conditions, has been used for years with proven results.  In the aesthetic industry, the primary form of Phototherapy used is Light Emitted Diode (LED) therapy. Originally developed for wound healing, LED Light Therapy has also been shown to:

  • Increase circulation
  • Accelerate tissue repair
  • Destroy p.acne bacteria
  • Decrease inflammation
  • Improve skin tone, texture, and clarity
  • Ease muscle & joint pain

However, these results can only be achieved if the LEDs have the correct wavelengths and the ability to reach the minimum energy requirement to induce change. Research has shown that in-home devices and some professional devices on the market do not meet the wavelength and energy requirements to produce results. So how do you know if you’re getting an effective treatment? At Embody MedSpa, we do our research and only purchase equipment that has been through rigorous clinical studies with data to prove the efficacy and safety of the treatment. And this is the reason we chose the CellumaPRO LED System with blue, red, and infrared wavelengths.

What Is CoolSculpting?

When you first hear about CoolSculpting, it sounds too good to be true. A painless procedure that permanently gets rid of fat in all those stubborn areas in 1-2 treatments? No way. I know there’s doubt in people’s minds because I’m the biggest skeptic out there. But guess what? It works!

Freeze Away Fat?

So let’s talk about how this innovative, non-invasive procedure works. CoolSculpting works by delivering controlled cooling to your fat cells causing them to freeze and die, a process known as cryolipolysis. Your body then naturally eliminates these dead fat cells over time, leaving you feeling more comfortable in your clothes and confident in your appearance.

Because fat cells freeze at a higher temperature than other cells within the body, we can use CoolSculpting to target those stubborn bulges without harming other tissue. 25% of the fat cells in the treated area are eliminated with each treatment – permanently! The whole process is easy, painless, and effective.

In Search of the Perfect Brow

Eyebrows have become THE hottest beauty trend since teeth whitening. And it’s no wonder – they frame the face and have a way of giving that polished look to your overall appearance. But what if you weren’t blessed with naturally full and perfectly shaped arches??

Microblading, a new form of semi-permanent makeup, will turn even the most pathetic brows into gorgeous works of art. Also known as eyebrow embroidery and feathering, this procedure is used to reconstruct lost eyebrows, re-build thin brows, or just enhance existing brows. The best part? It looks completely natural and lasts up to 18 months!

Unlike traditional cosmetic tattooing, microblading uses individual strokes to create realistic-looking “hairs”, as opposed to blocks of color. You can choose to do it yourself by getting something like Girlz Ink microblading supplies online, but by leaving it to the professionals, our highly skilled and certified microblading technicians carefully map out the perfect eyebrow shape and customize the color using only the finest non-toxic, stable, insoluble, and antiseptic pigments. A non-motorized tool called a microblade scratches the outer layer of the skin which then allows for these specially developed pigments to be absorbed. The whole process takes about 2.5-3 hours and voila! Realistic, flawless brows that won’t wash off or smudge or fade away.

While microblading may not be for everyone, it is a truly amazing breakthrough in the cosmetic industry. So maybe you’re sick of filling in your wispy brows or tired of drawing on new ones each morning. Or maybe you just want your arches to be the envy of all who see them. Whatever the reason, microblading might just be the treatment you’ve been searching for.

Is Mineral Makeup Really Worth It?

There has been a lot of buzz around mineral makeup in the beauty and skincare industry for the past decade with more and more companies developing their own brands or improving what they already have. But what exactly is mineral makeup?

In the most basic terms, mineral makeup refers to cosmetics that do not contain chemicals, dyes, and preservatives found in traditional makeup. However, my definition is a bit more specific. True, high quality mineral makeup should be comprised of pure micronized minerals and should not contain talc, petroleum, alcohol, dyes, or fragrance. The ingredients should make the products naturally anti-inflammatory, non-comedogenic, non-acnegenic, and non-irritating. The naturally sourced pigments should provide true colors with excellent, lasting coverage. Oh, and throw in some mineral based sun protection for good measure.

Ingestible Collagen: A Revolutionary Skin Breakthrough

Why is collagen important?

Collagen is a protein that gives skin structure and strength, firmness, and elasticity. As we age, the rate at which we produce collagen slows down by about 1% each year after the age of 25, while the rate at which collagen is destroyed increases. This leads to fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin.

To increase collagen production within the skin we recommend getting professional resurfacing procedures and a home care regimen that includes retinol, peptides, and antioxidants. In addition to treating collagen with topical methods, there is evidence to support that ingesting hydrolyzed collagen further boosts the collagen levels within the skin.yana-1

Hydrolyzed collagen is a protein that has been broken down into tiny fragments, allowing for better absorption by the body. Once absorbed, the collagen levels in the skin increase thereby decreasing fine lines and wrinkles and improving skin elasticity, hydration, and roughness.

Introducing YANA Daily Collagen Shots

The revolutionary new beauty liquid works in conjunction with both a professional and home care anti-aging program for amazing results. Clinically proven to increase collagen by 65% in just 60 days and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by 63%, this delicious drink delivers fast results and promotes younger looking skin.

Using a complex called Lumiplex these daily shots work to rebuild and repair skin on a cellular level. It delivers 5 powerful restorative compounds to the skin: hydrolyzed collagen peptides, phytoceramides, biotin, a proprietary ultra-nutraceutical antioxidant complex, pyridoxine HCL.

By incorporating ingestible collagen into your daily routine you can expect to see an overall improvement in your skin in as little as 1 week, as well as increased skin hydration by up to 40% and skin elasticity by 15% within 3 weeks. The product is sugar-free, dairy-free, soy-free, gluten-free, and non-genetically modified (non-GMO).

Seems like a no-brainer, right?

Embody MedSpa is all about maximizing results in the shortest amount of time safely. Adding the YANA Daily Collagen Shots to your existing skin care program is such an easy way to accomplish that. Stop in to try a FREE sample of this revolutionary new treatment and take your skin care routine to the next level.

2016 Top Ten Skin Care Resolutions

  1. Wear SPF 30 every day

90% of all visible aging comes from sun damage. Protecting your skin daily will help keep it looking younger and healthier, while reducing your risk of skin cancer.

  1. Quit Smoking

Smoking accelerates the aging process within the skin, which leads to more wrinkling, sagging, and discoloration.

  1. Eat Clean

A healthy, nutrient-dense diet will result in a youthful, radiant complexion. Eating clean has been shown to improve acne, rosacea, and eczema.

  1. Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate

Want skin that glows? Drink water! We recommend drinking half your body weight in ounces for ideal hydration.

  1. Reduce sugar & caffeine

Sugar causes inflammation which can aggravate acne and rosacea. It also can cause collagen and elastin fibers to become brittle which leads to premature aging. Caffeine is a diuretic and will dehydrate your skin if you’re not consuming enough water.

  1. Relax

Stress causes the release of hormones such as cortisol and testosterone, which can aggravate a number of skin conditions including acne, rosacea, eczema, psoriasis, hives, etc . Stress may also accelerate cellular destruction which leads to premature aging.

  1. Exercise

Committing to a regular exercise routine will increase circulation to the skin, reduce the levels of stress hormones, and increase endorphin levels. This all leads to a beautiful, more youthful complexion.

  1. Wash your face every night

Remove dirt, oil, makeup, and pollutants that accumulate on your skin throughout the day.

  1. Sleep

Try to get at least 7 hours of sleep each night. Insufficient sleep will lead to accelerated aging and a reduction in your skin’s ability to repair itself.

  1. Invest in your skin

Fashion trends come and go, but great skin never goes out of style. Do yourself a favor and consult a qualified skin care professional to determine the best products and treatments for your skin type and concerns.
