Change your INK with less pain, shorter treatments and faster results

Change your INK with less pain, shorter treatments and faster results

The most coveted purchase this season is the Apple Watch. While many seek the Apple Watch, many who have it are deciding between art and technology. #TattooGate isn’t just a figment of the imagination. The Apple Watch is not compatible with the wrist ink. You can wait for Tim Cook to fix it in the next generation or you can enjoy your new gadget by taking matters into your own hands.
Presenting PicoWay from Syneron Candela

PicoWay offers an easier way to deal with ink that no longer fits your lifestyle. The new dual-wave picosecond laser delivers ultra-short pulses of energy (shorter than any other picosecond laser) with the highest peak power available on the market. PicoWay creates a photo-mechanical impact that breaks tattoo ink into tinier, more easily eliminated particles. This means PicoWay is able to disrupt even the smallest ink particles, making it even easier for the body to get rid of unwanted ink.

The end result is a faster, more effective treatment experience with improved clearance on the widest range of ink colors and types. Significant results can be seen after just three to four treatments, as opposed to six to twelve sessions with older traditional tattoo removal technologies. And, PicoWay is less painful than other tattoo removal systems.

Traditional tattoo-removing lasers operate in the nanosecond or billionth of a second range. PicoWay is the first FDA-cleared picosecond Nd:YAG laser for removal of unwanted tattoos. The new, super-fast laser improves the ability to remove that permanent ink. “This revolutionary, picosecond-domain, dual wavelength, Nd:YAG laser is a significant advance in laser technology,” said Eric F. Bernstein, M.D.,M.S.E., Director of Laser Surgery and Cosmetic Dermatology Centers in Ardmore, PA. “Having an Nd:YAG picosecond-domain laser enables treatment of the widest range of skin types and allows rapid removal of black, red and other pigments. Picosecond pulse-durations were a long time coming, and are a significant innovation in laser technology, and the wait was well worth it.”

According to a recent Syneron Candela consumer survey, 15 percent of Americans over the age of 18 have tattoos. The same survey reveals that almost 1 in 5 people with a tattoo say they have considered removing their tattoo. If your arm art is preventing your Apple Watch from working, PicoWay now removes your ink in fewer sessions allowing you to enjoy your new watch with your new skin.

Layering can be applied to more than just fashion; it also works wonders for your skincare regimen.

Somme Institute presents SKIN RESET

Somme Institute presents SKIN RESET

After years of dedicated research on the phenomenon of cellular aging in humans, Somme Institute has developed what can be unequivocally described as a product that rejigs aging facial skin.  A product that fills, firms, tightens and thickens facial skin.  A product that diminishes fine lines and wrinkles and restores normal skin tone with optimal hydration. Somme Institute has announced the introduction of SKIN RESET, the most effective and comprehensive solution to the dismaying problem of facial aging.  Clinically proven in women and men of all ages, skin types and ethnicity.

Somme Institute presents SKIN RESET

Somme Institute presents SKIN RESET

Somme Institute presents SKIN RESET

SKIN RESET improves the appearance of facial skin from being lax and wrinkled to tight and smooth, through firming, filling and thickening actions.  Its advanced design enhances trans-epidermal penetration of an aggregation of re-engineered vitamins that have undergone molecular modification.  At the heart of SKIN RESET is MDT5™, another Somme Institute innovation.

MDT5™ is a matrix of potent, stable and re-engineered vitamins that are enveloped within peptides for trans-epidermal delivery.  When applied on skin, this engineering marvel of molecular bio-chemistry enables the vitamin matrix-cum-peptide capsules to penetrate mottled and aging skin. MDT5™ is a very efficient delivery system, almost like a superconductor, transporting re-engineered vitamins essential for cellular renewal and skin rejuvenation.

SKIN RESET works by driving MDT5™ deep into aging and aged skin.  MDT5™ carries its cell­­ rejuvenating, peptide-enveloped vitamin complex for dispersal within the limp sub-surface collagen lattice.  During the process of delivery, Somme Institute‘s technology ensures protection of these fragile vitamins from degradation by skin enzymes.  This protection ensures intact delivery of the potent vitamin complex, resulting in a taut sub-surface collagen lattice.

A causal relationship has been established between MDT5™ and its stunning reversal of sun damage, fading of fine lines and wrinkles and a muting of skin discoloration.  Research dermatologists also have confirmed the ability of MDT5™ to firm, fill, tighten, thicken and hydrate the skin.

The observed changes are skin firming with a reduction in skin laxity and fine lines caused by tautening of a limp collagen lattice, leading to dramatically improved elastic skin that looks smooth, younger and radiant.  In addition, MDT5™ intensively re-hydrates dry skin into a moist, matte and supple state.  These positive changes are progressive, evident from the first week of use with significant results manifesting between 4 and 6 weeks.

This transformation by SKIN RESET has been reconfirmed using the Faraghan ultra-high resolution clinical camera system.  This UV camera system captured surface and sub-surface changes induced by Skin Reset.

1) Section a 2 inch fringe at the front and part that out of the way to incorporate later.
2) Then take the rest of the hair and make a high ponytail at the crown of the head. Smooth the sides and back using Sunlight Styling Spray.
3) Now take the front from step 1 and sweep it over to one side and connect it to the ponytail securing it with another hair tie. The sweep of the fringe should be kept high to give a short fringe look exposing the eyebrows. Use Sunlight Styling Spray to help control the direction of the sweep.
4) Curl the ponytail; spray Sunlight Finishing Spray MAX onto small enough sections that fit into a 1 inch diameter curling iron
5) Take a small piece from the ponytail (1cm diameter). Saturate that piece using Sunlight Holding Spray and wrap that piece around the hair tie, covering the hair tie. Take a curling iron and rest the barrel of the iron on the wrapped piece, going all the way around to help meld the wrapped hair to the ponytail.
6) Pump 1-2 drops of Silk Nectar Serum into your hands and lightly break apart the curls in the ponytail. Brush curls into a soft wave. 6) For a good hold, spray the look with Sunlight Finishing Spray MAX.

Silk proteins are the highest grade protein ingredients that are created from the hydrolysis of silk fibers. They are actually “the inner part” of silk removed during this process. Originally, this ingredient was only used in high-grade skincare, however when applied to hair, silk proteins form a transparent protective film that seals the hair cuticle increasing elasticity, natural shine and further preventing damage to the hair.

Design has long been a haven for those who dare to do differently, so we wanted one of our first global challenges to connect with this bold creative class directly,” said Kristin Patrick, Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer, PepsiCo Global Beverage Brands. “In a year of challenges, we have also turned the lens on ourselves to look at our brand differently. We’re turning over our most cherished piece of equity and our most visible piece of real estate – the facade of the Pepsi can – to consumers around the world to reimagine. We can’t wait to see the results.”

Antoine’s Celebrates 175 Years of Culinary Tradition

Antoine’s Celebrates 175 Years of Culinary Tradition

Antoine’s – an icon and a standard bearer for traditional French Creole culinary traditions in America – will commemorate its 175th anniversary in 2015 with a year of special events, menus and celebrations inside the walls of its fabled French Quarter dining rooms, as well as in other markets around the country. The legendary New Orleans restaurant is the oldest continuously operating restaurant in America, the birthplace of Oysters Rockefeller, and remains owned by the same family that started it nearly two centuries ago. “Dinner at Antoine’s” is such an experience that those three words fittingly served as the title to a famous novel, and the restaurant’s namesake is considered “the father of Creole cooking.”

Antoine's Celebrates 175 Years of Culinary Tradition

Antoine’s Celebrates 175 Years of Culinary Tradition

Born in France in 1822, Antoine Alciatore came to the New World at the age of 18 aiming to establish a business of his own, and after arriving in New Orleans in 1840, he opened a pension – a boarding house and restaurant in the French Quarter – that was simply to be known as “Antoine’s.”

Antoine's Celebrates 175 Years of Culinary Tradition

Antoine’s Celebrates 175 Years of Culinary Tradition

In ill health by 1874, Alciatore returned to France, where he died and was buried. Under Antoine’s wife’s tutelage, their son Jules served as an apprentice, running the restaurant for six years before traveling to France, where he served in the great kitchens of Paris, Strasbourg and Marseilles. He returned to New Orleans and became chef of the famous Pickwick Club in 1887, before his mother summoned him to head the House of Antoine.

His genius was in the kitchen, where he invented Oysters Rockefeller, so named after Standard Oil Founder John D. Rockefeller, for the richness of the sauce. While its namesake reportedly despised its title, Oysters Rockefeller is widely considered one of the greatest culinary creations of all time, with the recipe remaining a closely guarded secret.

Antoine’s Celebrates 175 Years of Culinary Tradition

Antoine’s features 14 dining rooms of varying sizes and themes, all steeped in history. Three of the private rooms bear the names of Carnival krewes – Rex, Proteus and Twelfth Night Revelers, with the bar named after the Krewe of Hermes. The walls are adorned with photos of Mardi Gras royalty and memorabilia, including crowns and scepters from many years long past.
The Mystery Room acquired its name from Prohibition, the 18th Amendment prohibiting the sale of alcoholic drinks from 1919 until 1933. During that time, select patrons would go through a secret door in the ladies’ restroom into a speak-easy behind it, and exit with a coffee cup of alcohol in spite of the laws. The protocol phrase to describe its origin was, “It’s a mystery to me.”
From its humble beginnings in 1840, Antoine’s has endured under the Alciatore family’s direction for five generations, helping make New Orleans one of the great dining centers of the world. The name has become synonymous with fine dining, and no visit to New Orleans should exclude a meal there.
Antoine’s, a traditional French Creole fine dining establishment since 1840, is located at 713 St. Louis Street in the historic New Orleans French Quarter. For more information, visit our website at www.antoines.com, like us on Facebook here, or make a reservation by calling 504-581-4422.

Bold-flavored and fruit forward, the new wines are the perfect counterpart to Downton Abbey Wines’ more classically reserved Bordeaux offerings.

The Chardonnay offers the lovely aromas of tropical fruits and delicate oak giving way to citrus flavors on a soft, silky palate.

In support of the launch, consumers will be given the chance to participate in an exclusive sweepstakes via www.DowntonAbbeyWine.com to win $50 PBS.org gift certificates, Downton Abbey gift sets and discount coupons redeemable on the website.

Peli Peli Launches 2015 Charity-of-the-Month Program

Beginning in January, Peli Peli, Houston’s first South African fusion restaurant, kicks off a new charity-of-the-month program, donating a set dollar amount for each prix fixe brunch and dinner sold throughout that month to a select charity. The restaurant’s first beneficiary: The Sunshine Kids Foundation, a Houston-based non-profit organization that is committed to providing positive group activities and emotional support to young cancer patients.

“The community has given so much to us, and now it’s our turn to give back,” says Thomas Nguyen, co-owner of Peli Peli. “We visited The Sunshine Kids’ facility and are incredibly impressed with the work they do to make a positive impact on the lives of young cancer patients and their families,” says Nguyen. “It’s our honor to partner with them in launching this program.”

Peli Peli Launches 2015 Charity-of-the-Month Program

January prix fixe menu offerings will include a four-course $45 dinner menu, with $3 of each meal donated to the charity. Each course offers three choices, including the restaurant’s popular Espetada, Curry Chicken and South African Kingklip among entree selections. The fourth course will tempt you with a European favorite Sticky Toffee pudding or the decadent African Mud Hut–a chocoholic’s dream.

Bobotie

Peli Peli Launches 2015 Charity-of-the-Month Program – Bobotie

An alternate opportunity to eat for a cause is the affordable $25 brunch, available on Saturdays and Sundays. Entree selections will include South African Eggs Benedict, Bobotie Egg Crepe and Passion Fruit Crepe—swoon worthy with three types of fresh berries and walnuts folded in passion fruit cream.

In addition to the prix fixe menus, on Saturday, January 24th, the Peli Peli staff, along with the restaurant’s customer volunteers, will host a fun-filled “South African Culinary Carnival” for The Sunshine Kids, complete with culinary demonstrations by Chef Paul Friedman, sampling booths where kids will “travel” from booth to booth to learn about South African foods and ingredients and have their Peli Peli passport stamped, face painting, DJ music and more. “Our goal for this event is not only to create an amazing experience for the children, but also to provide an opportunity for the kids to interact with our staff and customers and take their minds off of the medical issues they are dealing with,” says Friedman.

Peli Peli Launches 2015 Charity-of-the-Month Program

Established in 2009, Peli Peli is Houston’s first South African fusion restaurant. The award-winning restaurant is located at 110 Vintage Park, Houston, TX. A second Peli Peli restaurant will open in the Galleria at 5085 Westheimer Road in Houston in April 2015.

Celebrity hairstylist Peter Butler used Leonor Greyl – Claire Danes MET Gala

Celebrity hairstylist Peter Butler used Leonor Greyl – Claire Danes MET Gala

“For the China-themed MET Gala this year, Claire is wearing a Valentino dress that is a deep bottle green, really beautiful, delicate and quite formal.  So, we thought for her hair she needed to look more comfortable and cool.  The look is simple, but still chic and elegant – rough and finished at the same time.

Celebrity hairstylist Peter Butler used Leonor Greyl - Claire Danes MET Gala

Celebrity hairstylist Peter Butler used Leonor Greyl – Claire Danes MET Gala

Celebrity hairstylist Peter Butler used Leonor Greyl – Claire Danes MET Gala

I first began by towel drying her hair and blow-drying it roughly with my hands to get most of the moisture out.  Then I separated her hair into sections and took about 4 handfuls of Leonor Greyl Mousse au Lotus Volumatrice and applied it from scalp to ends and then sprayed Voluforme through the top sections into the roots.  After spraying the roots, I took the Leonor Greyl Wide Tooth Comb and combed her hair from the roots up and back straight up off the face.  I created a low side part on the right and pushed it into place, then let the look set.

 I went back with the blow dryer and rough dried the rest of her hair with my fingers to get the remaining moisture out.  While it was drying, I added a bit more Voluforme as needed when I thought it looked too “clean” since we wanted the look to have purpose and direction.  Once done, I went back with Leonor Greyl Sérum de Soie Sublimateur to break up the look and give it a little more shine and finish.

Celebrity hairstylist Peter Butler used Leonor Greyl – Claire Danes MET Gala

The focus of her look tonight was really all on the hairline – lifting it up and off the face.  The combination of the Mousse au Lotus Volumatrice and Voluforme at the roots really made the look.  The mousse is conditioning and gives a lot of body while the Voluforme really gets into the roots to give me that lift and hold that I’m looking for so the roots aren’t going to collapse, the volume isn’t going away – it looks subtle, but has really powerful hold.”

Gübelin delves deep into the mystery of sapphire

Gübelin delves deep into the mystery of sapphire

For connoisseurs of color there is no blue quite like that found in a fine sapphire. That has helped make the blue sapphire one of the most mysterious, and coveted, of all gems. This spring renowned Swiss jewellers Gübelin probes the depths of this unforgettable stone through a set of very special pieces.  Blue sapphires have captured the imagination for millennia. Deep, alluring, and often unfathomable, their subtle shades have often been associated with the blue of heaven and the all-encompassing sky. This has made them almost divine to many, symbols of nobility, virtue and wisdom.

Anyone who has had the good fortune to gaze into a fine blue sapphire, however, knows that it is a stone of great depth as well. Its mysterious hues pull one in, revealing a deep blue world full of marvel. Evoking the depths of the sea, sapphire blue can therefore also remind us of the origins of life. That makes it a potent symbol of life’s deeper meanings, of important connections, whether in nature or in our own lives, of loyalty and of the nurturing of deep friendships and lasting relationships.

Gübelin delves deep into the mystery of sapphire

Whatever one sees or associates with it, the blue sapphire is doubtless one of the most beguiling and inspiring of gems. This spring the House of Gübelin, renowned for its handcrafted high-end jewellery as well as for its expertise in coloured gems, presents a set of very special pieces centred on remarkable sapphires. Among the highlights is a superb 10.7 ct, pillow-shape Kashmir sapphire, set in a platinum ring with brilliant-cut diamonds and four smaller drop-cut sapphires.

The pieces, which include several other fine rings as well as necklaces and drop-earrings, are part of Gübelin’s Gem Classics Collection. As with all Gübelin jewellery, they are inspired by both the outer and the inner beauty of these extraordinary stones. They will appeal to all to those who seek a deeper luxury, one grounded in natural elegance and beauty, fine workmanship and the highest levels of quality.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley for Violet Grey

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley for Violet Grey

Rosie is part of a generation of models, including peers Cara Delevingne and Karlie Kloss, who aren’t just gorgeous, globe-trotting women but also incredibly ambitious. “Being a model, being an actress – it’s not decided by you. You’re chosen. You’re cast, and that’s fantastic, of course,” says Rosie. “There has always been a big part of me that wants to make things happen for myself. I’d like to get myself into a position where I’m starting something on my own. That’s my focus this year.” Off to an impeccable start, she is in the upcoming post-apocalyptic flick Mad Max and just debuted a new collection of her lingerie line, Rosie for Autograph, as well as her recently launched fragrance by the same name. This, in addition to her various campaigns and cover shoots, of course.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley on her very first nude photoshoot:
“I was in London and it was a different time. I honestly think I was a lot more free when I was younger; Kate Moss was my favorite supermodel and she always took her clothes off for anything. It was like, ‘Well if it’s good enough for Kate…’”

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley on the business of being “Rosie”:
“I believe who you surround yourself is a reflection of yourself. There’s a quote I have always liked by Will Rogers: ‘It takes a lifetime to build a good reputation, but you can lose it in a minute’”

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley on her career ambitions:
“Being a model, being an actress—it’s not decided by you. You’re chosen. You’re cast, and that’s fantastic, of course. There is always a sense of pride when you make the cut, but there has always been a big part of me that wants to make things happen for myself. I’d like to get myself into a position where I’m starting something on my own. That’s my focus for this year.”

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley on eating right to keep in shape:
“I don’t want to be that miserable girl pushing a salad around my plate…At home; I eat clean, organic, and simple. And when I go out with friends, I enjoy myself…I couldn’t live life just restrictive all the time. It’s just no fun to me. That’s not a way to live. It’s all balance.”

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley  on her daytime makeup look:
“…I don’t wear a ton of it, but I will always have a little foundation on, I’m a big fan of Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua. It’s a really natural foundation, so it just gives me a simple coverage. Then I put on Laura Mercier Crème Cheek Color in Rosebud and a little bit of YSL Babydoll Mascara in Wheedler Brown and a little bit of Eve Lom Kiss Mix and that suits me for the day, really.”

Using material shot backstage at the event, Knight has created an unique tableaux showcasing the 35 breathtaking outfits modelled by Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Gemma Ward and Lily Cole amongst others, representing the full breadth of McQueen’s vision. The American Express: McQueen Black Event saw McQueen show in London for the first time in several seasons and kicked off with a dramatic showcase of black pieces; some from the archive and others designed specifically for the night.

At the event, Nick Knight was asked by McQueen to photograph each model backstage with a view to creating a composite image for the future; a vision that, 11 years on, has now been realised.

RESTORCALM™ a deep repair treatment

RESTORCALM™ a deep repair treatment

ZO® Medical therapeutic skincare protocols include using RESTORCALM™ a cream designed to help reduce redness, calm irritation, and stimulate skin’s natural barrier restoration.  It provides immediate relief, comfort and hydration for sensitive, weak, dry or compromised skin.

As part of my skin preparation for a Thermage treatment, after using BRIGHTENEX™ in the morning I move onto to use RESTORCALM™. Actually RESTORCALM™ is used a.m. and p.m. after using BRIGHTENEX™ an application of RESTORCALM™ is exactly that – a treatment crème that slows down any skin reactions for added comfort to a stimulating, deep repair treatment program that BRIGHTENEX™ is offering.

Key ingredients in RESTORCALM™ include buddleja plant stem cell technology, and patented beta-glucan to sooth and slow skin reactions. In traditional medicine, Buddleja plants are widely used for their wound healing, anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties. The stem cell culture has antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and photo protective activity.

RESTORCALM™ feels cool on your skin, for myself I use RESTORCALM™ by massaging the crème  into the skin. Dr. Zein Obagi wants his clients to have results and this can only be achieved by ensuring your 1- 2 pumps are massaged into the skin to achieve results.

You can adjust the comfort level of the Brightenex™ or Retamax™ treatments if you need too, by mixing equal parts of Brightenex™ or Retamax™  with RESTORCALM™ to calm an anticipated reaction.  I have seen an increased redness on my skin in the evenings after I progress with  Retamax™ and using the RESTORCALM™ afterwards has visibly taken away the slight irritation. I can mix more RESTORCALM™ if  needed and give my skin a comfortable, cool relief sensation while my skin adjusts to the Retinol.

The new technology and advances in skin therapy has enabled Dr. Zein Obagi to create complex bio-engineered delivery systems that make his ZO® Medical therapeutic skincare products even more effective than the prior generation. Having the latest ingredients in your skin care is one thing, but having an effective delivery will deliver result and that is where ZO® Medical has excelled.

ZO® Skin Health Oclipse™ Sunscreen and Primer SPF30/SPF50

ZO® Skin Health Oclipse™ Sunscreen and Primer SPF30/SPF50

ZO® Skin Health Oclipse™ Sunscreen and Primer SPF30/SPF50, as one of the most important skin treatments you should never be without is a good quality sunscreen. The most common problem to keep using a sunscreen is that they often do not work well under makeup, or leave a greasy film on the skin so users often abandon the benefits of sunscreen and just use a moisturizer with an SPF.

Dr. Zein Obagi - ZO Skin Health

Dr. Zein Obagi – ZO Skin Health

Enter Oclipse™ Sunscreen and Primer SPF30 /SPF50 from ZO® Skin Health, a complete sunscreen with the correct ingredients needed to protect the skin from UVA/UVB, as well as acting as a professional primer, so that makeup just glides onto a smooth canvas.

ZO® Skin Health Oclipse™ Sunscreen and Primer SPF30/SPF50

ZO® Skin Health Oclipse™ SPF 30/SPF50 is a natural mineral sunscreen formula that offers a daily multi-defense system with broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection for even the most sensitive skin types or anyone needing post procedure protection.

ZO® Skin Health Oclipse™ Sunscreen and Primer SPF30/SPF50

With the six week  ZO™ Medical Protocol recommend by Dr. L.M. Chan of Parkway Skin and Wellness Centre prior to a Thermage treatment. I personally place a high value on quality sun protection, especially for protecting new skin that begins to appear from using RETAMAX™ 1% Retinol.

As part of my ZO™ Medical Protocol, I apply Oclipse™  every morning  especially as my skin is peeling/flaking, sun protection is paramount to protect your new skin that is being regenerated as the old skin peels away. If you think about Oclipse™  you are getting a broad spectrum sunscreen, a hydrator and moisturizer, a free radical fighter, a collagen booster, and a tinted makeup primer in one container when using the SPF 30 or a non tinted with SPF50.

ZO® Skin Health Oclipse™ Sunscreen and Primer SPF30/SPF50

Outstanding ingredients are Zinc Oxide, Titanium Dioxide that are clinically proven non-irritating UVA & UVB blockers, proprietary lipopeptide that stimulates collagen and elastic,  humectants and emollients that keep act as moisturizing agents. Enriched with fractionated melanin and potent antioxidants, this innovative formulation shields skin from high-energy blue/violet light and environmental aggressors that have been shown to induce premature aging .  All these ingredients held in a silky silicone base so the texture is a smooth as silk with each application.

Oclipse Sunscreen+Primer SPF30 2

ZO® Skin Health Oclipse™ Sunscreen and Primer SPF30/SPF50

I have used so many sun protection products with either Zinc Oxide or Titanium Dioxide, never the two together; also I have had to use a primer as a separate product. What I do like here, is that I feel I am getting medical protection against the sun, but the added consideration that I want to apply makeup over my sun protection comes in the primer. Finally I can choose between Oclipse™ Sunscreen and Primer SPF30 tinted or SPF50 non-tinted, I choose tinted as it just gives enough color finish to blend naturally to any skin tone.

RETAMAX™ 1% Retinol formula that is potent

RETAMAX™ 1% Retinol formula that is potent

RETAMAX™ aids in skin rejuvenation by triggering the natural formation of collagen and encouraging the restoration of the skin barrier function by up-regulating the production of hyaluronic acid, the skin’s most vital natural hydrating factor.

As part of my 6 week ZO Skin Health treatment protocol I use RETAMAX™ I began with 1 pump for the first 2 nights then moved onto 2 pumps every night. At first this very potent treatment will feel warm as you massage this into the skin, then after 7-10 days my skin took on a pink/red appearance while I massaged in the  RETAMAX™ of course using RESTORCALM™ afterwards to calm down the reaction.

RETAMAX™ 1% Retinol formula that is potent

The reaction to the 1% Retinol and special plant stem cell antioxidants used in RETAMAX™ includes redness, dryness, peeling, irritation, and itching. All of these reactions I experienced, when I spoke with  Dr. L.M. Chan of Parkway Skin and Wellness Centre Hong Kong, he advised that more reaction indicates a normal skin repair response.

One evening the reaction was very strong, and the advantage with ZO® Medical is that you can just adjust the quantity slightly to 1 – 1 ½ pumps to accommodate the strength of an application, then returned to the full strength of 2 pumps. Which I did, my skin felt very comfortable after my slight adjustment, as my skin continued to repair and become stronger.

RETAMAX™ 1% Retinol formula that is potent

RETAMAX™ 1% Retinol formula that is potent

However as I was reminded, results and comfort do not necessarily go hand-in-hand, so if you use less treatment product than the recommended amount you will have less irritation/reaction but slower repair. Using RETAMAX™ over night gives your skin a totally smooth texture in the morning and over time the tolerance level for Retinol improves. This is an important factor when preparing the skin for treatments such as Thermage and Fraxel as well as certain peels that can only benefit from good medical skin preparation.

Dr. Obagi created this standalone product that uses 1% Retinol and special plant stem cell antioxidants in order to stimulate skin renewal and cellular turnover at the deeper dermis layers. Dr. Obagi says “This formula is potent! RETAMAX™ contains the highest concentration of retinol in the ZO® Medical arsenal of products to overhaul aging skin, sun damage, and prevent future damage.”

The RETAMAX™ biocellular antioxidant system serves to block free radical damage, helps protect vulnerable cellular DNA, and addresses the root cause initiators of future skin aging. Optimizing irritation management, RETAMAX™ helps ensure maintenance of the new, healthy skin state by defending against irritation-initiated skin damage.

As I have had a Fraxel treatment before in New York without any skin preparation such as the ZO® Medical, I am expecting to see my Thermage and later Fraxel results vastly improved from previous treatments.

ZO Skin Health preparation for Thermage or Fraxel, so why is it so important to follow a 6 week protocol of ZO Medical skin treatments before you embark on a Thermage or Fraxel treatment in Hong Kong?  According to Dr. L.M. Chan – Parkway Skin and Wellness Centre Hong Kong at my recent consultation, “Medical grade skincare is the foundation of an effective and successful skin treatment program,” a program that I personally plan to take in the next couple of months, after I have prepared my skin using a planned ZO Skin Health treatment protocol in restoring skin health.

It is important to note that medical grade skincare is versatile and potent. This means that it should be customized and individualized to the prospective patient’s needs and skin type.  In all honesty this can only be done properly with a physician’s supervision.

Poor or inadequate supervision can lead to overuse and even abuse of the skincare, then the patient can suffer adverse effects. With proper and supervised usage, prior to a medical procedure you are on a path that leads to good results, minimal to no side effects, and more importantly safety.

While I was living in New York, I had a Fraxel and V-Beam treatment, the treatment its self was fine and I would highly recommend then, however I was not advised to prepare my skin for both treatments.  I now believe I could have attained much better results had this been advised for me to follow. So this time, its 6 weeks of prep then back to Dr. L. M Chan for a Thermage. Before leaving ParkwayHealth Skin and Wellness Centre I need a briefing with Carrie Cheng, Clinic Manager to complete my documentation and take a series of photos using a Facial Imaging System.

ZO Skin Health preparation for Thermage or Fraxel

ZO Skin Health preparation for Thermage or Fraxel

My preparation consists of seven ZO Medical Skin treatment products, which I use a.m. / p.m. My first product is NORMACLEANSETM a very rich and creamy cleanser that removes oil and impurities from the skin while providing nourishing, moisturizing and calming effects to the skin. Moisten the hands and use a small amount of this unique formula to the face, massage well for around 40 – 60 seconds no short cuts please!

NORMACLEANSETM  emulsifies very easily, it gently cleanses and conditions the skin while peptides and collagen-boosting complexes firm the skin. This highly advanced surfactant matrix removes impurities and oil, preparing the skin for therapeutic treatments. Key ingredients which stand out for NORMACLEANSETM are 1)Sodium Hyaluronate  or Hyaluronic acid, 2) Allantoin –  this increases the water content of the extracellular matrix, 3) Advanced Lipopeptide-Myristoyl Pentapeptide-8  – stimulates collagen production.  Just by reviewing some of the ingredients in NORMACLEANSETM  you can see this is a stand out skin cleanser.

ZO Skin Health preparation for Thermage or Fraxel  – Off to a good start!
