Too Much Fun in
the Sun? Skin Damage Treatments That Work
Too much fun in the sun, your diet and water intake
can take their toll on your skin. If you find that
your skin has been abused, Body Beautiful can
certainly help turn back the clock on skin damage.
Whether it is acne, scars, sun damage, stretch marks
or daily wear and tear, we offer various services to
help you look your best. It is my job as an
esthetician and laser technician to help you with
your skin care needs. Some of these treatments
include: Chemical Peels, Microdermabrasion,
Photofacials, Fractional Laser or Lamprobe
Chemical Peel and Microderm
A Chemical Peel or Microdermabrasion, received with
a facial, is one of the least invasive ways to
improve the appearance of your skin. They may be
used on all skin types and on many areas of the body
with a few exceptions. Done in a weekly series for
up to six weeks, they can improve acne. By
exfoliating the top layer of your skin, it allows
dead skin cells to shed more effectively, which
reduces clogged pores and pimples drastically. Both
treatments are great for age and liver spots, fine
lines, pigmentation, rough or dry skin, scars and
sun damage. Microdermabrasion can also increase the
number and thickness of collagen fibers, the number
and size of fibroblasts, cells that make collagen,
and the number and orientation of elastic fibers,
giving the dermal layer more spring.
You will see subtle improvements at first, but that
healthy glow will increase with each treatment of
your series. Then you can maintain your vibrant look
by receiving treatment once a month. Although
Chemical Peels and Microdermabrasion work for
superficial skin conditions, deeper scars and
pigmentary abnormalities may require a Photofacial
or Fractional Laser treatment.
When skin rejuvenation is applied to the face and
neck, itís referred to as a Photofacial. We
use Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Therapy - a skin
rejuvenation technique that uses intense pulsed
light waves to treat damaged cells deep within the
skinís layers. Since there are no incisions
involved, you can undergo treatment and go back to
your regular schedule immediately.
The Photofacial makes use of an Intense Pulsed Light
(IPL) device that is steadily passed over the skinís
surface and treatment areas. The light emits
high-intensity wavelengths that reach deep within
the skinís layers to cause a structural breakdown of
damaged cells. This promotes the healing process as
the body rapidly removes the injured tissues and
Photofacials offer several benefits for damaged
skin, and can help you achieve a fresh, rejuvenated
appearance as they:
Reduce the appearance of age spots
Remove fine lines and wrinkles
Improve the complexion
Increase collagen production to help create
healthy and resilient skin
Break down and remove damaged skin tissue and
Improve the texture and tone of the skin
Get rid of acne scars and skin pigmentation
Enhance skin tone and help even out darker
shades or patches of skin
Fractional Laser (Infrared)
While Photofacials target discolorations, a
Fractional Laser is used for skin resurfacing (skin
tightening and wrinkle reduction) on all skin types.
This laser is used to treat problems that occur on
the face, neck, chest, back, arms, and legs
(wrinkles, acne scars, melasma, stretch marks,
crowís feet, blotchy skin).
The Fractional Laser works by delivering an array
of high-precision micro beams (infrared) to create
deep, narrow columns of coagulation in the epidermis
and dermis. This triggers a restorative natural
healing process that creates healthy new tissue
Photofacials and Fractionals are administered in a
series of four to six treatments every four weeks
for optimal results and may be maintained with
monthly facials, Chemical Peels, Microdermabrasion
and yearly Photofacial and Fractional Laser

"After Just one Treatment."
Smoother, tighter skin doesn't need
to be a distant memory! We offer a new and effective

the face, abdomen, upper arms, and other areas,
through infrared light pulses.
Our unique fractional technology can
deliver these treatments safely, comfortably and
effectively. We deliver visible results with
little to no downtime after treatment.
revolutionary skin tightening
regimen uses advanced radio
frequency technology to treat
wrinkles non-invasively. Multiple
clinical studies and thousands of
satisfied patients have proven the
Accent Your Body treatment's
effectiveness in tightening loose
skin, promoting healthy collagen
production and improving body
contours. Compared to other skin
treatment systems, you'll see
noticeable results faster.
Q: How does skin tightening work? What should I
expect after treatment?
A: The fractional infrared method
delivers infrared light deep into the dermis. This
light causes soft tissue coagulation which leads to
remodeling of the collagen with-in the dermis. The
remodeled collagen fills in wrinkles and sagging,
for overall skin tightening. You may experience
lingering warmth, tightness, or redness in the
treated area, which fades within a few hours of
treatment. Because so much of the skin is unaffected
by the light pulses, there is a quick healing
process. Generally, you can receive a treatment and
go back to work or to other activities without any
recovery time. A series of treatments at 4-6 week
intervals may be required to achieve the desired
result of smoother, tighter skin in the face, arms,
abdomen & other areas.
Q: What makes these treatments different from
A: Rather than using one large beam
to deliver infrared light into the skin, we uses the
"fractional" approach: delivering an array of small
beams. Each beam creates a heated column in the
dermis, which is surrounded by an unaffected area.
The unaffected tissue stimulates quicker collagen
remodeling, and faster healing.
Are these treatments safe? Are they painful?
A: The fractional method is much
safer and more comfortable then the bulk heating
approach of many other systems because it leaves so
much of the skin unaffected by the light pulses.
This method also uses 3-stage cooling. It cools the
skin before, during, and after each light pulse, so
you feel little discomfort during treatment.

Until now there were no good options for stretch
mark treatment. Since the U.S. Food and Drug
Administration cleared the Palomarģ

for treating stretch marks, BODY BEAUTIFUL Laser
