Summer is fun but tough on beauty! You want to flaunt that fresh, nude look but imperfections and the harsh sun just won't let you. For one thing, the sun's UVA and UVB rays are the primary cause of aging fast. But not to worry, even if there are treatments your tanned skin isn't suited for, it's still a good time to take care of your skin - especially if you are prone to breakouts, blemishes, and discoloration. Acne plagues over 60 million Americans, more so during this season. In fact 85%, including you and I have probably suffered from zits at one point in our lives. Pimples used to be synonymous with pimples but currently, it typically haunts us in our 20's and so pervasive that $3 billion annually is spent on acne treatment. It is common but leaves us with annoying marks and pits and hyperpigmentation that make us self-conscious. But that's just the tip of the iceberg - as we grow older we lose the radiance of youth and complain of crepey, wrinkled skin. Here's how our own lovely Providers keep their amazing looks:
For persistent acne, there is nothing better than to have a "Free Skin Consultation" at Juvly where our experts can discuss your skincare goals. However, if you are considering having fillers and wrinkle relaxers, booking a "Free Juvly Assessment is more appropriate. There are so MYTHS like eating greasy food causes a flare-up or that blackheads are caused by dirt so you have to scrub vigorously. During the consultation, you will be able to separate fact from fiction as your Juvly skincare professional asks you about your history, medications, flare-ups, genetic predisposition, and relation to menstrual cycles. Some women with polycystic ovarian syndrome suffer from acne. Though no one factor causes acne, it occurs when increased oil production plugs the follicle which gradually enlarges causing unsightly bumps. When this ruptures, bacteria enters and causes inflammation which can turn into a pustule, a pimple or a deeply placed cyst. Juvly carries the best medical-grade skincare from Obagi, SkinBetter Science and SkinMedica that will help manage your condition. These products have good-for-your-skin retinols, tretinoin, AHA, BHA, Vitamin C, sunscreen and other active ingredients that protect, exfoliate, soothe and heal. Chemical Peels, ResurFx and Microneedling (with or without PRP) can help diminish the look of scars and hyperpigmentation. Plus, these treatments can decrease pore size, smoothen the texture of the skin, increase suppleness (through induction of collagen growth), and even-up skin tone.
In this webinar, Shannon Esau, director of education for Rhonda Allison, will discuss:
- The cause of acne and factors that contribute to its persistence;
- Types of acne and how to identify them; and
- The three keys of effective acne management:
- reducing bacteria and inflammation
- increasing cellular exfoliation
- supporting proper wound repair
Different dermal fillers have widely varying properties, associated risks, and injection requirements. All dermal fillers have the potential to cause complications. Most are related to volume and technique, though some are associated with the material itself. The majority of adverse reactions are mild and transient, such as bruising and trauma-related edema. Serious adverse events are rare, and most are avoidable with proper planning and technique.
