How to Winterize Your Skin Care Routine

When the weather starts to change, our skin care routine needs to as well. While we Arizonians are fortunate enough not deal with blistering and brutal winters, our “cold” season still calls a concern to our skin. During the winter, the inside of our homes tends to be blasting with heat, which makes for very dry air that dehydrates our skin. Then we go right outside, where we get slammed with freezing cold temperatures. Not to mention, Ultraviolet rays still penetrate through the clouds hitting the top of our face and then reflecting of the snow, ice, and pavement, hitting the bottom of our face with a double whammy.  To prevent your skin from dryness, dullness, and cracking, follow these tips and tricks!

  1. Get a Humidifier

Having the heater cranked can cause major skin dehydration. This can leave your skin flaky, cracked, and dull. Getting a humidifier for your house can help add some of that moisture back into the air and your skin!

  1. No Hot Showers

I’m not saying we need to take cold showers here! Just not excessively hot showers. Hot water actually constricts the blood vessels making us more prone to get the chills. Not only this, hot water strips the skin of its natural oils, leaving it parched, flaky, and even cracked. I know that a hot shower feels amazing when there’s a chill in the air but try to keep the health of your skin in mind.

  1. Wear Sunscreen

Why wear sunscreen when there is no sun? Because Ultraviolet ray still break through the clouds and cause sun damage. In the winter it’s surprising extra important to wear sunscreen because the ultraviolet rays bounce off the snow and ice and hit the bottom of your face, while the top is already being hit as well.  If you’re like us and are fortunate enough to live in the valley, we don’t experience the snow. However, it’s that means its sunny every day, so we still need to apply that sunscreen.

  1. Thicker Moisturizer 

When your environment changes, so should your skin care products. During the summer our skin is more prone is being oily, so we only need a light, even mattifying moisturizes.  Whereas in the winter, our skin is more dry and brittle, so we require a thicker cream to help lock in whatever moisture we have.

 

Winter is for friends, family, and seasonal parties. It’s a time where everyone is try to look their best, so make sure your not skipping some of the most important steps!

4 Ways To Keep Your Body Healthy Inside and Out During The Holiday Season

Thanksgiving is a time for family, friends, and over-indulging in food and drink! While, this is all well and good to do a couple times a year, the excess food and alcohol can really effect a whole host of issues on the inside and out. To combat the glut of this holiday season you need to detoxify and reinvigorate your skin and body. This can be achieved by exfoliating, reducing congestion, brightening, de-stressing, and hydrating.

Reduce Inflammation

Sugar and alcohol are the most pro-inflammatory foods we consume, so it makes sense that we are the most congested around the holiday seasons where sugar, alcohol, starches are in surplus. You will need powerful ingredients such as salicylic acid found in Revision’s Black Mask. We sell a large variety of Revision products here at ZONA and love the black mask!

Brighten

Two of the main causes of dull skin is excessive alcohol consumption and poor diet. Both of which we all know are extremely common around the holidays. Look for brightening, tone-evening actives like Papaya, Vitamin C, and Licorice.We recommend Revision’s Papaya Enzyme Wash, Vitamin C Serum,  or Brightening Wash to treat dull skin! They significantly reduce discoloration, evens your complexion, and leaves you with brilliantly bright skin.

De-Stress

There are endless amounts of stress that the holidays can bring, so it’s important to keep your skin and body protected by de-stressing. Use your favorite de-destressing technique in combination with antioxidants! Antioxidants work to reduce the oxidation process and speed up cellular repair. There are plenty of antioxidants out there to choice from but some of the most common is Green tea and resveratrol (grape seed extract). These specific antioxidants provide phyto-nutrients, flavonoids, and polyphenols; all which restore balance and youth to your skin and body.

Hydrate

Everyone knows how important it is to hydrate every day, but Thanksgiving brings on colder, dryer, and hasher climates. Not to mention all the dehydrating alcohol that the parties bring! Keeping up on your water intake will help you looking bright and dewy, rather than dry and brittle. A daily moisturizer will additionally be extremely benifital to lock in that moisture!

The Many Types of Chemical Peels

Professionally applied chemical peel solutions exfoliate dead skin cells and help healthy skin cells rise to the surface. These treatments allow deeper layers of fresh and untouched skin to be revealed. The result of monthly treatments can even skin tone, clear acne, improve the appearance of aging skin and make dull complexions glow. But which peel is right for you? ZONA Med Spa is here to simplify this picking process.

Obagi Blue Radiance Chemical Peel:

The Blue Radiance Peel is a salicylic acid-based facial chemical peel for all skin types that exfoliates and helps improve overall complexion. This specific peel is great for almost any skin type, if you don’t have an aspirin allergy, and can improve a wide range of skin concerns! You could see instant results in the tone, texture, tightness, smoothness, and brightness after just one treatment.  The Blue Radiance Peel is great for anyone who doesn’t want to invest in little to no downtime. Overall, we recommend 4 to 6 peels to receive optimal results!

Neocutis Chemical Peel:

NEO•PEEL is an in-office superficial peel that combines glycolic acid with skin brightening agents to help minimize the appearance of skin aging and help promote renewed smoothness and radiance. This peel is particularly great for aging skin however, also helps with uneven skin tone and texture, pigmentation, roughness and surface irregularities, and fine lines and wrinkles. Individual results may vary, so sitting down for a complimentary consultation with our Esthetician to see if you are a candidate would be recommended.

IS Clinical Fire & Ice Chemical Peel:

This intensive clinical chemical peel is also known as “The Red-Carpet Facial” as it can be done the day of an event with no downtime! Designed to rapidly and safely resurface the skin, the Fire & Ice peel reduces fine lines and wrinkles, smoothing, softening and encouraging cellular renewal. This chemical peel isn’t for individuals with very sensitive sin due to its intensive properties, however if you have mild sensitively then this treatment can still be for you.

“Brotox”: Some not so feminine treatments

Okay guys, it’s time to come out of the cosmetic procedures closet. It’s 2016, it’s no longer necessary to act like a “big manly man” that doesn’t take care of his skin, wrinkles, or hair. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, over 400,000 U.S. men received “Brotox” (a.k.a. Botox for men) injections in 2014. This doesn’t include other men that receive facial treatments or laser hair removal.  It’s time to un-stigmatize men partaking in self care, so ZONA Med Spa wanted to talk about the treatments that we most commonly see males getting at our spa.

 

Botox:

Botox is the number one cosmetic treatment choice of men. About 20% of our Botox and Dysport clients are men, and I personally love to see them come in. It’s so nice to see that stigma being broken little by little. As men age, their wrinkles can cause them to look harsh. Botox can soften those lines without taking a masculine appearance away. Botox isn’t just for women!

 

Microdermabrasion:

For those who don’t know what Microderm is, it’s a facial treatment that stimulates healthy skin cells by sloughing off dry skin cells. Microdermabrasion softens fine lines and wrinkles, helps to smooth coarsely textured skin, decreases the appearance of superficial scarring and superficial hyper-pigmentation or age spots. This is the most common facial treatment for men who come to ZONA Med Spa because it exfoliates and absorbs products better into the skin. Thus, leaving them with a complexion that keeps others wondering their secret to great skin.

 

Laser Hair Removal:

As you read this, I’m sure you’ve questioned what hair men even need to laser away. Well, with our male clients at ZONA we often see men seeking to remove hair on their neck, back, and chest. Just like women, men have specific concerns too. One of the biggest concerns we see is the ingrown hairs men can get on their necks. Laser hair removal addresses this issue directly and eliminates shaving completely. Leaving that once coarse, bumpy and irritated area smooth and hair free!

 

Nobody likes to see the effects of aging. Let’s get rid of the stigma that man can’t have a spa day and encourage all men to join us ladies next time!

PRP: Not Just a Trend

You’ve probably heard of Vampire Facials because of the influential Kim Kardashian, but have you heard of PRP? Well, it’s the same exact thing, just without the familiar name of Vampire Facial. However, don’t knock the PRP facial as something that is just on trend, this treatment has some major restorative benefits! We at ZONA Med Spa wanted to give a simple and clear breakdown of what the experience would be like and inform you on the amazing benefits of our PRP facial.

 

Why get a PRP Facial?

The internal essence of your blood contains life-giving fundamental protein growth factors designed to restore and strengthen your skin. PRP utilizes a leading-edge patented technology specifically designed and verified for aesthetic applications. Our RN professional will harness an extremely high concentration of your biological nutrient-rich cells and then create autologous platelet-rich plasma. Platelet-rich plasma is a regenerative technology that uses your own biochemistry to instinctively repair and strengthen specific residing tissues. Another cool thing about PRP treatments is that it’s exclusively from you, meaning there is an extremely low chance of having an allergic reaction or intolerance to it.

Overall benefits:

  • Restore and strengthen your skin
  • Collagen stimulation
  • Softens fines line and wrinkles
  • Improves skin’s tone and texture
  • Helps acne scarring

Process of a PRP Facial:

A PRP Facial is a procedure in which the body’s own platelet rich plasma (PRP) is used to re-energize cells and boost collagen production. So basically, this treatment is specifically great for middle aged persons who want to revive their skin.  The following is a step-by-step process to the treatment:

  1. Your blood is drawn and spun in a centrifuge – this allows the plasma and growth factors to separate
  2. PRP is applied topically to the skin
  3. A MICROPEN is then used to aerate the skin – which is when the skin is perforated with near microscopic holes to allow for the delivery of the PRP
  4. A second layer of PRP is applied allowing for maximum benefit

After the treatment, there is 2 to 3 days of downtime, however you will be pleased to notice the overall tone, texture and quality of your skin will greatly improve will just one treatment. Depending on the client’s skin goals, it may require 3-5 treatments over 3-6 months.

 

Here at ZONA Med Spa our experienced staff are here to answer any of your questions or concerns and insure you are as comfortable as possible.  If you are interested in a PRP Facial give ZONA a call and set up a free consultation.

SkinBetter Science: Innovation in Every Formula

Recently, the staff of ZONA Med Spa attended an educational seminar for SkinBetter Science. SkinBetter is brand new to the market and we got to learn all about why this line is unlike anything else in the clinical skincare industry. They have strived to reinvigorate and redesign the whole skin care experience; and they have done just that. We at ZONA are very excited to see SkinBetter Science transform the skin, so here is more about this revolutionary skin care line.

The line can be broken down into two categories: regenerating and smoothing.  Rejuvenating is a collection of anti-aging performers that deliver immediate and long term skin benefits. The smoothing experience is designed for line-smoothing and collagen-invigorating. Using them all together only gives you greater and faster results.

Here are the key ingredients and benefits for each product in the SkinBetter Science line.

 

Regenerating line:

The rejuvenating technology of the AlphaRet face creams is something you’ve never seen before. SkinBetter Science innovated a whole new molecule that significantly reduces the appearance of depth and size of line and wrinkles. AlphaRet is a combination of alpha hydroxy acids, tretinoin, and retinol. In the past these ingredients have been known to be potentially irritating to the skin, however the mechanism of hydrolysis in their product creates a natural “time release” action so your skin is not bombarded with too much product all at once. Results should be seen in as little as four weeks.

 

AlphaRet Overnight Face Cream:

Target Areas: Lines, wrinkles, uneven texture, and discoloration

Ingredients:

AlphaRet


Minimizes lines


Glycolic Acid


Helps retexturize and increase the performance of AlphaRet


Peptide blend


Invigorates collagen


Squalane, niacinamide, ceramides, fatty acids, and shea butter


Moisturizes deeply


Antioxidants C, E, ubiquinone, green tea extract,

superoxide dismutase, & delta alpha tocopherol


Fights against collagen loss


 

 

Intensive AlphaRet Overnight Face Cream:

Target Areas: Lines, wrinkles, uneven texture, discoloration

Ingredients: The ingredients for the Intensive AlphaRet cream is that same for the normal AlphaRet cream. The only difference between the two is that the intensive cream has a greater concentration of glycolic acid, which enhances their gold standard results.

Smoothing experience line:

                There are three products in the smoothing experience line: lines, eye, and face. This trio targets the action of line smoothing and collagen invigorating. SkinBetter Science yet again created another innovative technology they call InterFuse. InterFuse is a new delivering system that allows ingredients to penetrate through the skin’s defensive barrier fasters, deeper, and with incredible precision.

 

Intensive Treatment Lines:

Target Areas: Deep expression lines, crow’s feet, fine line and wrinkles on forehead, upper lip and smile lines

Ingredients:

Injectable grade hyaluronic acid


Delivered faster and deeper via InterFuse technology


4 additional types of HA


Binds water to the skin for optimal line plumping


2 neuro-calming peptides


Helps to relax the appearance of expression lines


Amino acid building block, messenger peptides and Vitamin C


Helps invigorate collagen


 

 

Daily Treatment Eye Cream:

Target Areas: Crow’s feet, under eye puffiness and darkness in the under-eye area

Ingredients:

A blend of messenger peptides


Delivers faster and deeper via InterFuse technology to invigorate collagen


A neuro-calming peptide


Relaxes the appearance of crow’s feet


Vitamin C from the Australian kakadu plum


Brighten tired dull under eye skin


Caffeine and a yeast derivative


Relieves the appearance of under eye puffiness and congestion


Glycine, niacinamide, and hyaluronic acid


Delivers hydration


 

 

Daily Treatment Face Cream:

Target Areas: Skin sagging, lines, wrinkles, loss of firmness and radiance

Ingredients:

 

A blend of messenger peptides


Delivers faster and deeper via InterFuse technology to invigorate five different types of collagen


A neuro-calming peptide


Relaxes surface lines for an immediate smoothing effect


Potent polyphenois derived from Olea Europea olive trees


Helps protect against the breakdown of collagen


Shea butter & glycerin


Provides a breathable layer of moisture


 

As you can see, SkinBetter Science is truly like nothing else on the market! If you are interested in this skin care line, here at ZONA, Scottdale’s Med Spa we carry the line and can also address any questions or concerns you may have.

What to Expect from a Radiesse Treatment

 

Non-Surgical procedures like Botox and Dysport have been around for ages. While these kind of injections help with smoothing and tightening the skin, there was never a way to treat lost volume and shallow contours. That is until 2015 when Radiesse became FDA approved. Radiesse is a dermal filler that is used for filling and smoothing moderate to severe facial wrinkles, folds, and hollow areas; which are among the most common signs of aging. These aging signs are caused by the loss of collagen, which is naturally extremely abundant in our skin until the age of 20. In our 20’s we start to lose 1% of collagen in our skin every year. That is why when we are young we have our most full, plump, and youthful look.

Now that you know a little about the Radiesse filler, I wanted to give a breakdown of what it would be like to come in to ZONA Med Spa for this treatment.

Consultation:

First, we would recommend a consultation with our experienced injector, Michele Hunter RN. Going over your main areas of concern, Michele would decide if you are a good candidate. ZONA believes that honesty is the best policy, with her expert opinion she won’t treat someone who doesn’t truly need it. Our goal is to enhance your natural beauty, not to change your whole appearance. If you are wanting to do a consultation and treatment in the same day, we can accommodate that for you just be sure to let us know when booking the appointment.

A couple Days Before your Radiesse Treatment:

There’s only a few things to do a couple days prior to your treatment.

  • To avoid bruising it is best not to take any pain relievers that are blood thinners such a aspirin, Advil, Motrin, Vitamin E, and caffeine (including Green Tea)
  • Avoid waxing, bleaching, tweezing or the use of hair removal cream on the area to be treated
  • Avoid using a Vitamin C cream, Glycolic Acid, Alpha Hydroxy Acids higher than 10% and Retinoids
  • Avoid extended sun exposure
  • Inform Michele of all medications you may be taking as well as your medical history

The Day of:

The day you come in for your treatment, you will be greeted by our staff and taken in to meet with Michele. First the area will be sterilized and numbed. The whole procedure will take about one hour and ranges from zero to mild discomfort. Michele will verbally go over after care instructions and also send you home with a copy of them. Additionally, after the injections you’ll be sent home with an ice pack to immediately help reduce any swelling.

After Care:

There isn’t a lot you can’t do after getting fillers but there are a few important things to avoid.

  • To avoid bruising and swelling- ice as much as you can for the first several hours. 15 minutes on and 15 minutes off
  • Avoid working out, saunas, and yoga for 48 hours after your treatment
  • Avoid any facials or massages two weeks
  • Avoid using a Clarisonic for two weeks  
  • Avoid sleeping on your face

Of course after everything is all said and done, if you still have any questions or concerns about the treatment or aftercare protocol, we encourage you to call or stop by so we can address those matters.

The Correct Order to Your Skin Care Routine:

With all of the skincare products out there, it can get seriously overwhelming to figure out when and in what order to apply all of them. I had to consult our esthetician to get the facts straight.

Why does order matter?

So why does it really matter the order in which we put our skin care products on, you ask? According to Chelsea, ZONA Med Spa’s esthetician, “layering the products in order helps for optimal products absorption”.  For example, if you put a moisturizer on before a serum, the heavy thick cream of the moisturizer would completely block out the light liquid serum from ever absorbing.  This is also why Chelsea said that a good rule of thumb is to layer thin-to-thick or liquid-to-cream.

The Correct Order:

  1. Cleanser

Start with a cleanser to remove all makeup, dirt, or oil from your face and neck. A common question we receive is why we have to wash our face in the morning if we just washed at night; and while is extremely important to wash the day away at night, your skin recovers during the night which means you have more oil and dead skin cells to sought off in the morning.

      2. Toner

Most people choose to skip toner, however there are new breeds of toner out there designed for multiple purposes. They can act as a delivery system for antioxidants, vitamin B derivatives, and even toning acids. Just make sure you are using a toner, not an astringent! A lot of people believe astringent are just like toners or are toner, however astringents have alcohol in it that with strip your skin.  Also double check that you are using a toner that is right for your skin type.

      3. Serum

Serums are super concentrated so you want them as close to the skin as possible as well. There are a wide range of available ingredients that cater to all different skin needs. Therefor if you are using multiple serums, try to apply the ones with thinnest consistency first.

  1. Treatment

By treatment, we mean any retinols, anti-aging, or acne treatments you may be using. This is the 3 step because you want these types of products as close to the skin as possible to maximize their benefits.

  1. Eye Cream

It’s a common misconception that eye creams are only for older people, but it actually couldn’t be more opposite. It’s very important that you use an eye cream twice a day and to start this routine in your early 20’s.

  1. Moisturizer

Finally, you are at the last step!  The best time to apply moisturizer is when the skin is still moist, so after using your cleanser, pat you face gently, apply your treatments and serums, and then put on your moisturizer to lock in the hydration. In the morning it’s crucial that you use sunscreen, so if your moisturizer doesn’t already have at least SPF 30 in it, applying a separate SPF product will be the very last step.

10 Anti-Aging Foods to Start Eating:

There is no doubt that smoking and lots of sun exposure causes premature aging, so on that same line of thinking, then our food choices can play a major role in aging as well. Even if you don’t eat the healthiest, think about adding these 10 foods into your diet, they are especially known for their anti-aging properties.

  1. Blueberries
    These super foods have uncommonly high levels of flavonoid, which improves memory and will also help reverse damage done by toxins. Try adding some blueberries in your yogurt or freeze them for a cold treat!
  1. Red Grapes
    Feel guilt free about you nightly glass of red wine! Red grapes protect your skin from harmful UV radiation damage.
  1. Salmon
