It has been an exciting year in the aging business.  Normally, I am reviewing studies on machines that can promise to turn back time, but this year has proven to be a little different for us.  I have been amazed at the number of combination therapies that are on the rise.  This interesting turn is taking treatments that we already love and combining them to give results like I have never seen. 

Microneedling is a treatment that comes in various forms.  The idea of microneedling is to create small channels in the skin to stimulate new, healthy collagen to grow.  The idea of the combination therapy is to apply ingredients into these small channels to help treat aging related issues.  There is a two and one half minute window during which time these “channels” remain open to allow these topical treatments to penetrate the intradermal layer- the top layer of the skin.

The following are now available at About Face Skin Care with our Registered Nurses. 

If you have issues with dry, dull skin with a few fine lines, try this!

• Collagen Induction Therapy with Hydrafacial MD – 

HydraFacial MD® is a non-invasive, multistep treatment that combines the benefits of water based exfoliation, a chemical peel, automated painless extractions (no pinching!) and a special delivery of Antioxidants, Hyaluronic Acid and Peptides.  When combined with the collagen stimulating benefits of Collagen Induction Therapy, you will see skin that is moisturized, smooth and tightened.  This treatment is perfect for someone who has very dry, dehydrated skin, acne, fine lines, dark spots, or just needs an overall freshening.  The skin is topically numbed before treatment so there is no discomfort and no downtime. 

If you have issues with lines and wrinkles, try this!

 • Aquagold MicroInfusion Treatment –

This mini-miracle has taken us by surprise.  The Aquagold infusion system is a small sterile ampule that can be filled with products that are delicately delivered into the top layers of skin to treat sensitive areas like crow’s feet, wrinkles around the lip lines, neck lines, décolleté, and backs of hands. Skin has an instant glow with no downtime and the treatment is pain-free.  This treatment requires no numbing and is usually completed in about fifteen minutes.

If you need superior skin tightening and wrinkle/ fine line reduction, try this!

• Fractora Enhanced –

We have enjoyed the amazing benefits of Fractora in our practice for over two years.  The tightening and lifting rival a facelift in many cases.  However, we had no idea that Fractora could be enhanced to deliver even more incredible results when combined with a topical collagen stimulator.  Fractora is a combination of microneedling and Radio Frequency.  After the treatment, a collagen stimulating solution is applied topically to the skin.  The results, in about six weeks, includes brighter, smoother skin with smaller pores and fewer lines. 

As you can see, we are thrilled to introduce these amazing new services to fight the aging battle.  In honor of our 15th year in business, we are offering discounts on these and other amazing products and treatments.  We offer a free consultation to discuss your best treatment options.  Give us a call at 770-935-FACE (3223) or book online at www.aboutfaceskin.com.  We look forward to meeting you!  About Face Skin Care and About Mind and Body are located behind Lowes on Janmar Road.
