What is dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a safe (provided the person performing it is properly trained) and highly effective physical exfoliation procedure. It requires the use of a sterile, surgical scalpel to gently "shave" the skin's surface, removing the top-most layer of dead skin along with fine, vellus hair (aka peach fuzz). The procedure can be performed monthly, in less than thirty minutes, with no downtime post-treatment. Dermaplaning is only performed on the face; however, it is not meant to be used to shape eyebrows, which are made up of "terminal" (not vellus) hairs. The nose is also avoided.
Benefits of dermaplaning
Physical exfoliation triggers the cell regeneration process and allows products to better penetrate skin. Some practitioners perform a chemical peel post-dermaplaning (I wouldn't recommend this if you've never had either treatment before or have sensitive skin).
Dermaplaning is also excellent to rid the face of excess fine hairs which can often accumulate dirt and oil. Contrary to popular belief, vellus hairs, as opposed to terminal hair, will not grow back thicker or darker. Microdermabrasion, which also physically exfoliates skin, does not remove vellus hair. Exfoliation of dead cells along with the removal of fine hairs results in healthier, brighter skin that has a smoother look and feel.
Who should consider dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is especially effective on those with dry or rough skin texture and helps to minimize superficial acne scarring or uneven skin tone. It is also beneficial for mature skin, which tends to have a buildup of dead cells as cellular turnover slows down with age. Dermaplaning is safe for pregnant or lactating clients who cannot have chemical peels (peels penetrate skin to act at the cellular level, thus are contraindicated). Those with very oily or active acne should avoid this procedure as well as anyone with thick, dark facial hair.
Don't try this at home
It's important to note that dermaplaning employs a specific technique requiring a delicate touch and a skilled approach to resurface skin. Thus, I don't recommend shaving at home as an alternative to dermaplaning (see Shaving – the ultimate anti-aging tool?). Unlike shaving, dermaplaning is performed freehand with a surgical scalpel (the average razor has two blades which are also duller than surgical blades) on tautly stretched skin. The methodology requires short strokes at a certain angle in particular patterns depending on the facial region.
Microdermabrasion is a high demand cosmetic procedure. It is a non-invasive exfoliating procedure that can dramatically improve and revitalize the appearance of the skin in as little as 30 minutes. It can be used to address problems on virtually any part of the body. How Does Microdermabrasion work? At the ageless beauty skincare clinic, we offer the best in Microdermabrasion technology: Microdermabrasion is a gentle exfoliation that is performed with a diamond-encrusted applicator tip. The tip passes over the skin's surface and creates a gentle vacuum. The diamond tip gently exfoliates approximately 20-25 microns of dead skin cells of the outermost layer (stratum corneum). Once removed, it reveals one’s own fresher, younger-looking skin beneath. The Benefits of Microdermabrasion: Microdermabrasion has been shown to:
Exfoliates skin surface
Improves dull or uneven skin tone
Unclogs pores and erase blackheads and acne
Diminishes the appearance of fine lines, and wrinkles
Reduces pore size
Increases skin circulation for a healthy, natural glow
Removes skin surface debris
Side Effects of Microdermabrasion The most common side effect of the procedure is a slight redness to the skin for an hour or two after the procedure. Some patients find that they may blush more easily for a day or two after the treatment due to increased blood flow to the skin surface. Makeup can be applied right away and can easily cover any redness from the procedure. Microdermabrasion Acne Treatment Microdermabrasion has been found to be a very effective treatment for controlling and reducing the overall appearance of acne. As with most other acne treatments, microdermabrasion for acne results differ from person to person, depending on the individual’s specific skin and acne types. Many of our patients find that they can see results from the first day. The reason that acne microdermabrasion is so effective is that it is able to kill bacteria and unclog pores in a way that no other treatment is able to. Unlike products that only claim that they are able to penetrate deep into the skin, microdermabrasion actually can. It literally strips off the top layer of dead skin and sucks all of the impurities and bacteria straight out of your pores, without damaging your living skin.
Fractional Skin Resurfacing
Visible Results of Innovative Skin Resurfacing:
Shrink enlarged pores
Diminish stretch marks
Smoothen deep wrinkles
Correct textural irregularities
Treatments with low downtime and safe for all skin tones.
Venus Viva™ is an advanced, non-surgical solution for skin resurfacing that works to improve the overall texture of your skin. It combines NanoFractional Radio Frequency (RF) and SmartScan™ technology to help you get smoother, healthier skin by reducing signs of skin damage, including scars, enlarged pores, stretch marks, wrinkles, rosacea, and any other skin conditions that affect the texture of your skin. What makes Venus Viva™ truly unique is its ability to cover a greater surface area and treat multiple issues in the same session.
SAFE FOR ALL SKIN TONES: Treatments are safe and effective for use during all seasons and on all skin tones.
LOW DOWNTIME: You will experience mild redness post-treatment; however, you can continue with your daily activities immediately afterward. You can resume wearing makeup 24 hours after your treatment.
WHAT TO EXPECT: A single treatment session lasts no longer than 30 minutes. The number of sessions in a treatment program will depend on the individual patient, but typically varies between 3-4 sessions, every 4-6 weeks.
How It Works: Venus Viva™ works with tiny pins that safely deliver heat (via NanoFractional RF™) through the skin’s surface. This creates tiny micro-dermal wounds, which the body then works to heal naturally. This process is what repairs signs of skin damage seen on the surface of the skin. And because the wounds are so small, the treatment is much more comfortable than lasers or chemical peels. The result is smoother, healthier skin with minimal downtime.
Venus Viva™ also works to target fine lines and wrinkles with the non-invasive DiamondPolar™ applicator*, which uses Multi-Polar Radio Frequency and Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields to produce uniform heat on the skin. These two technologies work together to increase collagen and stimulate a natural healing response, resulting in a dramatic improvement to the skin with virtually no pain and no downtime.
Laser Genesis therapy can help restore your skin’s youthful glow and an appearance by smoothing out uneven texture caused by aging, sun damage, or scars. You will see a reduction in pore size, reduction of minor imperfections, and an overall healthier complexion. The individual treatment results are subtle, but the overall effect of multiple treatments can be quite dramatic.
Treatment of Wrinkles and Redness
Laser Genesis skin therapy is an innovative, technologically advanced way to promote vibrant and healthy-looking skin in men and women. Now you can have a youthful appearance by treating those conditions that are typically associated with premature signs of aging and sun damage, such as excessive redness and fine-line wrinkles. The Laser Genesis procedure has been scientifically proven to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by producing new collagen.
The Laser Genesis Difference
The Laser Genesis procedure utilizes non-invasive laser technology to safely, discretely and effectively treat fine-line wrinkles, diffuse and excessive redness and scars. You can expect to see subtle yet consistent results after each treatment, without unwanted side effects such as bruising or excessive skin irritation. Treatments can be performed in a relaxed, comfortable manner without the use of topical anesthetics or gel.
How does Laser Genesis work?
By gently heating the upper dermis well below your skin’s surface, Laser Genesis stimulates collagen regrowth to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Additional heat is generated in dilated capillaries to reduce redness.
How many treatments will I need?
The treatment results are often subtle. On average, you may require four to six treatments in order to achieve optimal results. Every patient’s condition and needs vary. For more information about your expected results or the number of treatments necessary, consult your healthcare professional.
What are the possible side effects?
Although most patients report few if any side effects, the most common is a slight redness that disappears within a few hours of treatment. Consult your healthcare professional for complete information about the benefits and risks of treatment.
IPL Skin Rejuvenation
IPL Photofacial is an ideal treatment for skin care concerns ranging from redness, light acne scars and rosacea to broken capillaries and hyper pigmentation. IPL Photofacial involves a non-ablative laser that has been carefully calibrated to seek out specific pigments in the skin – redness, darker discolored patches or dark spots from acne scarring. The actual IPL Photofacial procedure feels like the mild snapping of rubber bands against the skin’s surface. With each snap, the IPL Photofacial penetrates deep below the skin’s surface to treat the issues at the source. For successful elimination of redness, sun spots and old acne scars, a patient will likely require multiple IPL Photofacial treatments. The Photofacial can truly create a marked difference in the patient’s skin over time, since the skin continues to improve for weeks after the actual IPL treatment. Immediately following an IPL Photofacial, a patient is free to resume his or her daily activities. Each IPL Photofacial treatment is conveniently quick and takes only about fifteen to twenty minutes from start to finish. For this reason, many patients seamlessly integrate their IPL Photofacial into their lives by getting treatments during their lunch hour.
A brief period of facial redness is the most common side effect of the IPL Photofacial, although this can easily be covered up with liquid foundation, powder or a concealer until the redness subsides, usually within an hour or so. As we get older, some of skin damage is manifested by irregular or blotchy pigmentation spots, called solar lentigenes, which can occur on face, arms, hands, shoulders, and chest. These spots detract from beauty as they interfere with the clarity of skin color. To combat this, our Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) system uses the 600 nm wave length and specifically targets this superficial pigment in the epidermis. By using a wavelength spectrum with strong melanin absorption and weak hemoglobin absorption, much lower fluence (power) is needed for effective treatment. Pulses are controlled by a closed-loop power control that regulates every pulse for consistent, safe results. A standard pulsed light system, in contrast, uses a broad spectrum and requires much higher fluences for similar outcomes since a large portion of the light is not effective in the treatment. Two to four treatments are needed for optimum results. Some discoloration may be seen in the area immediately following the treatment. Within one to three weeks the lesion gradually flakes off. IPL Treatments take only a few minutes and are usually quite painless. The sensation of a mild brief pinching sensation is sometimes felt. The best results are obtained when Intense Pulsed Light treatment is combined with Laser Genesis and Titan™ in what is called the 3D Skin Rejuvenation approach. This is the new gold standard for skin rejuvenation and tightening.
A chemical peel is a body treatment technique used to improve and smooth the texture of the facial skin using a chemical solution that causes the dead skin to slough off and eventually peel off. The regenerated skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin. Thus the term chemical peel is derived. Some types of chemical peels can be purchased and administered without a medical license, however people are advised to seek professional help from a dermatologist, esthetician, plastic surgeon, or otolaryngologist on a specific type of chemical peel before a procedure is performed.

What Is An Oxygen Facial?
This treatment is designed to nourish your skin and promote collagen growth. It involves a machine that is used for spraying highly concentrated molecules of oxygen right into your epidermis (the outer layer of your skin). The oxygen that’s applied to your face and neck is infused with vitamins, minerals, essential nutrients, and botanical extracts. Celebrities, including Madonna, swear by this technique for smoother and plumper skin.
10 Amazing Benefits Of Oxygen Facial For Glowing Skin:
1. Boosts Collagen Production.
Collagen is the protein that makes the cells stick together, providing strength and elasticity to your skin. When the collagen weakens (with age), wrinkles appear.
One of the biggest benefits of oxygen facial is the collagen boost it gives to your skin, making it firm and reducing fine lines and wrinkles.
2. Detoxifies the Skin
The oxygen facial helps the skin utilize the oxygen and the nutrients and vitamins infused in it. This boosts the detoxification process of your skin, negates the effects of pollution, sun exposure, and diet fluctuation, and helps in the repair and regeneration of the skin cells.
3. Speeds Up Cell Turnover
Our skin cells have a limited lifetime. They die, and new cells replace them. Oxygen is crucial for cell regeneration. It increases the rate at which new cells grow, which, in turn, helps in scar (from acne) healing. The oxygen facial gives an extra dose of oxygen to your skin cells, thus aiding faster cell turnover.
4. No Painful Side Effects
This process is exceptionally gentle on your skin and doesn’t cause any side effects, such as irritation, redness, swelling, stinging, and a burning sensation. It is suitable for people who have sensitive skin and those who want to avoid chemical beauty treatments.
5. Moisturizes Your Skin
Constant exposure to the sun, dust, and pollution rob your skin of its natural moisture content. This makes it extremely dry and lifeless. And if you have dry skin, these issues can make your skin worse. The oxygen facial deeply moisturizes your skin, restoring its pH balance and shielding it from sun damage.
6. Makes Your Skin Super Radiant
This facial removes all impurities from the epidermis (top layer of the skin), boosting the oxygen content. It also removes the dead cells from the top layer, opens up clogged pores, and brings out that natural blush on your cheeks.
7. Heals Acne
Acne is formed when the skin cells are clogged, trapping dirt and oils in them, causing the pores to get enlarged. The oxygen facial helps in shrinking the pores and doesn’t let your skin accumulate dust and dirt. As a result, it remains glowing for longer, and you won’t get annoying pimples, zits, and acne.
8. Fast Recovery Time
Usually, in the case of other procedures and skin treatments, you have to wait for a specific period before you can go back to your regular skincare regimen. But in the case of the oxygen facial, there isn’t any particular recovery time. You can start applying creams, lotions, or makeup to your skin almost immediately.
9. Results Are Instant
You will notice immediate results after the oxygen facial. The benefits of oxygen facial include healing issues such as acne, wrinkles, and blemishes and it makes your skin younger-looking and glowing.
10. Treats Uneven Skin Tone
The serum used for oxygen facial is rich in hyaluronic acid, peptides, vitamins, and botanical extracts that treat uneven skin tone and make your face look bright.

What is the Venus Freeze fat reduction, skin tightening and cellulite treatment?
Venus Freeze is non-surgical liposuction fat reduction treatment that tightens skin and reduces cellulite as well. The Venus Freeze is a temperature-monitored, radiofrequency (RF) soft tissue heating, fat reduction and skin tightening device. Venus Freeze combines Octopolar technology, a series of 8 bipolar RF electrodes that rapidly oscillate 100,000 times per second, combined with Pulsed Magnetic Resonance, that minimizes heat build up at each electrode and creating an even thermal matrix.
How does Venus Freeze work?
Venus Freeze is a non-surgical, fat reduction, skin-tightening and cellulite-improving radiofrequency technology. The external radiofrequency applicator is applied to the contour area of concern and moved back and forth slowly over top of a small layer of ultrasound gel. The oscillating electrical current heats up the skin and soft tissue, stimulating collagen and reducing the fat cell content in the region. The unique octapolar head, consists of 8 bipolar electrodes with the RF current rapidly oscillating 100,000 times per second, creating a unique uniform temperature on the skin and within the fat. Additionally, there is a series of 8 Pulse Magnetic Resonance poles that assists in collagen formation and new blood vessel formation.
How is the Venus Freeze procedure performed?
Venus Freeze fat reduction patients are treated for 20 minutes per zone, once weekly for a series of 6 treatments. During each treatment the skin and subcutaneous tissue is heated to a temperature of 42-45 degrees, comfortably and effectively.
Who is a candidate for Venus Freeze fat reduction and skin tightening?
Candidates for Venus Freeze and other non-invasive radiofrequency body contouring devices in general are those individuals who want to avoid minimally-invasive surgery, such as liposuction, BodyTite™ and SmartLipo™ or VASERLipo™, but still want to achieve body contouring improvements and fat reduction in focal areas of excess fat. Venus Freeze candidates also include those with skin laxity and cellulite that want to tighten loose skin and improve cellulite but avoid more invasive surgical procedures. Contraindications for Venus Freeze and non-ablative radiofrequency bulk heating devices include pregnancy and any inflammatory, infective or cancerous lesions in the area of treatment.

Skin Tightening & Wrinkle Reduction
Venus Diamond Polar Facial Skin Tightening™ is a quick, non-invasive treatment that is highly effective in tightening skin, and reducing the appearance of wrinkles. Venus Diamond Polar™ uses Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields, which provide you with the added benefits of increased oxygen, nutrients, and blood to the skin, giving it an immediate, long-lasting glow. Skin tightening and wrinkle reduction occur because the radio frequency causes a thermal reaction in the tissue, which stimulates the body’s natural healing response. This restoring response causes new collagen to form, along with the increased production of fibroblasts and new elastin fibers. The active collagen in the skin contracts, achieving a tighter appearance, along with softening of wrinkles and fine lines.
WHAT IS HYDRODERMABRASION/HYDRA FACIAL?
Hydrodermabrasion is the latest in skincare and an alternative to microdermabrasion without the use of crystals or diamond tips to abrade the skin. Instead, it combines the natural benefits of oxygen and water to shoot a pressurized stream of saline solution onto the skin. The high velocity of this procedure effectively removes dead skin cells at first contact, exfoliating and soothing the skin at the same time.
Hydrodermabrasion hydrates, cleanses, and revitalizes skin while supporting healthy blood circulation. Better circulation, in turn, promotes the production of collagen and elastin fibers that tighten the skin and promote a youthful look. Now, you can receive all the benefits of microdermabrasion without any of the irritatable side effects!
Benefits of Hydrodermabrasion:
• Benefits sensitive skin that cannot undergo other forms of microdermabrasion
• Decreases visibility of scarring and dark shadows
• Improves blood circulation
• Supports collagen and elastin production
• Tightens skin
• Leaves skin smooth and glowing
• Uses all-natural elements and minerals.

Ageless beauty skincare clinic is a leading provider of laser hair removal treatment. We have invested in the most advanced, state-of-the art laser technology available today. Who can benefit from laser hair removal? People of all skin colors and hair types will benefit from a delay in hair re-growth after just one treatment.

Laser hair removal can be used for both facial and body hair on both men and women. It is also an effective treatment for ingrown hairs. No more irritating skin and red bumps caused by those ingrown hairs we are all affected by and you will never need to shave or wax ever again. Hair removal is popular with men & women Traditionally popular with women as a permanent solution for removing facial and body hair; laser hair removal treatment is not just for women!

Laser Nail Fungus Removal
Laser Nail Fungus Removal The way it works is very simple; near infra-red laser light is passed over and through your nail to kill the fungus, while there is no damage at all to any of your nails, or your skin. The light literally passes right through your skin without any damage to healthy tissue at all. In fact, on top of no damage, there is also no pain throughout the process, just a feeling of warmth on the nail. Despite being a newer solution to toenail fungus, this technology has been used thousands of times since its creation, and has been proven to work without any side effects. By choosing to use laser therapy to treat your toenail fungus, you circumvent the need for any injections, prescription pills, and laboratory tests. While laser therapy is a great new solution for toenail fungus, there is potential for the fungus to continue. Failures can sometimes result from previous damage to the nail plates either through injury, severe long standing fungus infection, poor circulation, or genetics. Other fungal treatments that exist today come with a variety of pros and cons themselves, however the two prevailing alternatives have inherit flaws as reliable treatments for toenail fungus. Topical creams are inexpensive and easy to use, however they have a very low success rate, less than 18% in fact. The other common treatment is oral medication, which while the success rates are much higher, these pills run the risk of liver toxicity. Using laser therapy as your treatment gives you a quick, safe, and effective means of combating the fungi, molds, and yeasts that cause Onychomycosis, also known as tinea unguium.
