Keeping your skin hydrated during the winter

Keeping your skin hydrated during the winter

Many of us struggle to have great skin as it is, and when the weather is against us it’s even more difficult. Today we will give you tips that will alleviate certain winter problems and at the same time prevent conditions that occur during this season.

Problem: Dry chapped skin/ Flare-up of keratosis pilaris

Solution: Moisturize as you dry up

Extra-dry skin like on dry upper arms can trigger a flare-up of keratosis pilaris, that annoying rough skin, says “New York dermatologist Joshua Zeichner, MD”.

Product Recommended

Cerave Sa Renewing Skin Lotion On amazon for $9.92, Retail price $23.00

Why?

Since it contains salicylic acid it, therefore, exfoliate dead cells around your hair follicles and reduces bumps.

Problem: Chapping parched hands

Solution: Soap-free cleansers and alcohol-free hand sanitizers.

Product Recommended

The best product C.O. BIGELOW CHAPPED HANDS SOAP-FREE CLEANSER

Nordstroms $12.00

Why?  “They’re less drying than washing repeatedly with soap and water.”

Problem: If your arms or legs look scaly

Solution/ Product Recommended:  Use a 12 percent lactic acid lotion like AmLactin Moisturizing Body Lotion.

Amazon $23.00

Why?

Even if you’re just dealing with summer skin dryness, this lotion is THE BEST THING EVER. The lactic acid naturally causes your skin to turn over and locks in hydration while helping to boost skin’s ability to retain said moisture.

Problem: Chapped Lips

Solution: Picking at it can cause it to bleed and hurt, slow the healing process, and cause more irritation. Don’t exfoliate. It can cause further damage to chapped lips. Instead, apply plenty of balm or ointment and turn on the humidifier

Product: Orajel™ Single Dose Cold Sore Treatment $14.00 Target

Wrinkles while you sleep

Wrinkles while you sleep

A recent study showed, that the condition in which you sleep may contribute to the wrinkles on your face. When you lay your face on a pillow, you may be placing it in a position that affects your skin, therefore it causes the skin to stretch, shear, and compression forces on your skin. Lateral sleeping (on your side) and the prone (face down in the pillow) are the positions that are considered to cause wrinkles while you sleep. As we get older we move less while we sleep, this results in a longer amount of time in one position, therein a longer duration of time a wrinkle producing force is being applied to an area of skin.

{The location and orientation of sleep wrinkles are often different than wrinkles caused by facial expression, ( Please see the example below, Common sleep wrinkle locations and orientation marked in black]

And unlike wrinkles caused by facial expression most sleep wrinkles are not improved by Botox. However, sleep wrinkles can be improved by fillers (e.g., Juvederm, Restylane, Belotero), laser resurfacing, and face-lifting in some cases.

Why Laser Hair Removal

Why Laser Hair Removal

Shaving is tedious and waxing is a pain, serious pain sometimes. That’s why a lot of people are opting for laser hair removal at Cosmetic Rejuvenation Medical Center.

Using a laser designed specifically for hair removal, we kill the follicle at the root. Once that’s done, the hair is gone forever. In some cases, a very tiny, very fine hair may come back, but this is not noticeable.

Here’s why this is a good idea.

• It eliminates, forever, razor bumps and ingrown hairs after shaving.

• It’s targeted. If all you want is to remove a few specific hairs, such as those growing from a mole, we can do that and leave everything else intact.

• It’s fast. We can treat a space about the size of a quarter every second. That means a lip can be done in less than a minute. Treating an entire back make take an hour.

WHAT TO EXPECT

It may take more than one treatment to get rid of all the hair. The laser only works with the follicle is in the active growing stage. When the hair stops growing, hibernating is a good way to think of it, the treatment won’t work. That’s why more than one visit is usually necessary.

The laser also has to be adjusted for color, thickness and where the hair is located. That’s why experts have far better success than at-home laser removal efforts.

During the actual treatment, the hair will be trimmed back to a few millimeters. This is necessary because the laser actually uses the hair to funnel the light down to the root. Long hair means the laser is scattered before it reaches the root. Because of this, we highly recommend you do not wax or pluck the hair for six weeks prior to planned treatment. Please also avoid shaving for a few days prior.

This is a laser. Your skin is going to feel like it’s a bit sunburned for a few days. In rare cases, the skin may have mild blisters. This is another reason you should only let experts perform this treatment. Under the hands of an expert, your skin is safe. With someone who does not know they are doing, serious problems may result.

We find moisturizers and cool compresses help relief the discomfort.

Shaving Away Thousands of Dollars?

Shaving Away Thousands of Dollars?

In today’s blog, I wanted to highlight our laser hair removal service.  Why? Because we often hear the misconception that it is very expensive and that the “laser” seems extremely painful.

Our team at CRMCLaser has been performing laser hair removal for over a decade and outside of saving you thousands of dollars, the benefits of laser hair removal also includes saving you time, potential for ingrown hairs (therefore creating darkened and blemished areas), and a huge step towards smoother skin!

Did you know that some studies have revealed that waxing is the most expensive form of hair removal? One survey reported that the average spend on hair removal in one’s lifetime is $23,000!

The protocol for our technology calls for 6-8 treatments at intervals of 6-8 weeks, depending on the area of the body. Every patient has unique hair growth cycles, possible hormone changes, so spot treatments may be necessary every now and then.  Our goal is to ensure your laser hair removal journey is performed in the least amount of time and that you are as comfortable as possible during each treatment.

We know that pain tolerance differs greatly between each patient so we have numbing creams and ice readily available for your maximum comfort.  Many describe the “pain” as a similar sensation that a rubber band snapping gives.

The tolerable discomfort is worth it – we assure you.  The laser kills hair from the root. You keep shaving a couple of times like normal after your laser hair removal treatment. Then you will start to notice permanent hair reduction!

Please feel free to read more here about the process and technology your CRMCLaser team uses and be sure to stay connected to our Instagram @CRMCLaser and Facebook for our promotions!

No more frequent shaving or waxing – – there is a better solution, so please call us today for current pricing.  Your hair free journey starts with CRMCLaser, 323-650-9949.

When Life Hands You Lemons …

When Life Hands You Lemons …

When life hands you lemons, CRMCLaser says to brighten your skin and improve your health.

Today I wanted to remind all of you that lemons are great for your health and a way to brighten your skin naturally!  While you should always consult with your doctor about your diet and any food allergies, this post is to share information you may not know about the power of lemons in your diet and for your skin.

The citric acid and Vitamin C in lemons (especially the peel) help purify blood vessels and remove impurities found in your skin cells that lead to aging, dark spots, and wrinkles.  The lemon antioxidants help detoxify your skin. If you can handle the bite, it is a great health benefit to actually eat the peel.  The citric acid in lemons includes natural lightening components and is often an ingredient found in skin topical at home recipes for brightening skin.

Although lemons are not the ultimate solution for your unwanted dark spots, acne scars, and wrinkles, feel free to contact our CRMCLaser team anytime for alternatives that are right for you. 323-650-9949

Beat the Aging Process

Beat the Aging Process

If time, age, and just the general stress of living are wearing you down, you can do something about it. Get the looks you want through modern cosmetic medical procedures, many of which are non-invasive and can be done in the doctor’s office.

Why should you want to look better?

• It increases your self-esteem. When you look good, it shows in how you walk, talk and act. People will notice this and you’ll garner more respect.

• People will react better when you look good. The first thing most people notice about you is your smile. Dazzle them with pearly whites. We can give you the white teeth you want.

• Remove problems. You don’t have to wax every few days, You don’t have to shave daily. You can get rid of hair permanently with laser removal.

• Blast those wrinkles. We have a variety of treatments for wrinkles including BoTox light therapies, and the Liquid Lift injectable facelift.

Non-surgical nose job. In just a few minutes, our doctors can smooth out bumps and lumps in your nose. This is not a nose reduction or a complete reshaping. Likely you’ll still need rhinoplasty for that. If it’s just a few minor matters, this simple procedure may be enough.

• Hair restoration. Yes, believe it or not, some people want hair especially on their head. The body’s natural aging process often causes hair loss. In women, a condition called androgenetic alopecia causes hair loss in about 40 percent of ladies after menopause. It’s nothing more than changing body hormones that stifle hair production. With Platelet Rich Plasma Hair Therapy, we can treat your scalp and convince it to start growing hair again.

Weight loss. We offer several options for weight loss. Again, this is just a function of growing older. Your body slows, your metabolism slows and shedding pounds becomes much harder. One of the top treatments we offer is Vitamin B12 injections. A dose of B12 pumps up your metabolism gives you increased energy and revitalizes you.

• You don’t really need a reason other than you want to. It’s your body. You’re in charge of it. Time and Mother Nature may try to make changes you don’t like, but with modern cosmetic procedures you can hold back the hands of time.

We, at the Cosmetic Rejuvenation Medical Center, offer a complete suite of services for ladies who want to look their best. Call us today!
