Say goodbye to callouses with Yumi® Feet!

Comments Off on Say goodbye to callouses with Yumi® Feet!

 

Do you suffer from rough, dry, calloused feet?  You are not alone, many of us have had our feet snag the bed sheets in the night and wear socks ALL the time to hide them.  Our feet and hands take a lot of abuse during the course of day. For the most part we take care of our hands with washing, scrubbing and the occasional lotion application.  However, our feet seem to be more neglected and in the winter they show this neglect more than ever. The cold weather and dry inside air takes a toll on our skin and our feet show this with the formation of callouses.  The good news is we are now offering a new treatment to turn back the clock on your feet and give them some much overdue attention.

With our new YUMI® Feet Treatment you can enjoy soft smooth skin again on the bottoms of your feet.  This revolutionary new treatment was the breakthrough product in France and is now offered in the US.  YUMI feet is designed to get rid of calluses in just 15 minutes. Think of it as a chemical peel for your feet. It removes the callosities in a painless, safe and fast way.    Unlike the razor blade technique (which is medically not recommended) the skin grows back softer with each treatment. The peel is customized specifically to your feet’s needs.

We offer two treatment options:

  • A standalone Yumi Feet Treatment which consists of the Yumi application, Buffing and Lotion (30 minutes).  
  • A combination treatment beginning with the Yumi treatment and adding our popular express pedicure.  

Both of these services leave your feet healthy and soft.  For optimum results we recommend you should receive a YUMI treatment once a month, depending on the severity of your callouses.  Call our Spa located in Troy, Michigan today to schedule your Yumi Feet treatment and give your feet the attention they deserve. 248-524-3622.

Let’s talk About Endermologie & Cellulite

Just about 90% of women, over the age of 20, begin to develop cellulite or actually already have it. Due to this, spa procedures to help reduce cellulite have really increased! Endermologie is a great way to tackle this annoying issue us women & men face. Even though you cannot rid yourself of cellulite completely, Endermologie massively improves the appearance of those bumps & lumps!

What is the Endermologie treatment?

Endermologie is process of reducing cellulite by mechanical means, using rolling, massaging and manipulation of the tissues.

Endermologie is a non surgical and is the first cellulite treatment approved by the FDA! Endermologie helps improves circulation, relieve minor aches in your muscles, even  improves skin radiance and skin tone.

 

 

Cellulite, what are you? Why are you here?!

Right off the bat, Cellulite you suck, and honestly, what are you? You may have heard it be called the “orange peel effect”. This can be on all places of both men & women’s bodies, from our thighs to the backs of our arms.  Mostly where it is found though, is on the the backs of our things. It dimples in, giving our skin that uneven appearance, even in the best case of lighting scenarios. Thankfully, it is painless though, so we can’t complain there.  It’s caused by fat cells beneath our skin that trap toxins and retain water. The action of the massaging machine during Endermologie, breaks down water and toxins, and the fat cells, allowing the lymphatic system to drain it. (hooray!) While you cannot entirely get rid of cellulite, there are things to help you better understand cellulite entirely.

Diet – CARBS- cellulites biggest fan! Eating too much carbohydrates, fat and salt can increase your cellulite. Something that can help is to try eating more fibre enriched foods. This can have a small impact on the appearance of cellulite overall.

Clothes – Oddly enough, restricting your blood flow by wearing overly tight clothing can affect your cellulite. It also shows the appearance more of it too. So looser clothes can help to better the circulation here as well. 

Genes & Hormones – Your genetic characteristics, something you can’t change, has an affect on this as well. Things like a slow metabolism or a poor circulatory system could mean you are at a higher risk for getting cellulite. Many people have also come to believe that certain hormones (prolactin, estrogen, insulin, noradrenaline, and thyroid hormones) do have a big part in the production and development of cellulite.

Exercising & dieting.

No- there isn’t a “Cure” for cellulite per-say, but yes! Having a balanced, healthy, and well rounded diet combined with routine exercise will only be in your favor when trying to tackle cellulite. Combining these things will truly increase your results overall when you begin and continue your Endermologie treatments.

Come in for a consultation and we can discuss all of these things with you. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle will definitely help your all over results with Endermologie, and we highly recommend it!

 

How to achieve maximum results with a skin resurfacing treatment.

How to achieve maximum results with a skin resurfacing treatment.

 

Laser rejuvenation and resurfacing is popular for many reasons. It offers a solution to wrinkles, fine lines, post-traumatic scars, acne scars, sun spots, freckles and/or aging and damaged skin. Many lasers perform best when completed in a series.  However, if you are looking for results in a single treatment, the ActiveFX Laser by Lumenis® is the laser for you.  ActiveFX fractional laser can improve a wide range of skin conditions while refreshing the overall appearance of the skin.

 

Every patient’s skin is different, which is why a consultation is so important. It provides the opportunity to assess the patient’s condition and do a thorough evaluation of the skin. . This laser uses a high-energy beam of light that causes the skin’s upper layer to peel off and regenerate a layer of healthy new skin.  This achieves a dramatic effect; however, it does require approximately five days of downtime, as your skin will have associated redness and peeling.  You will see a reduction of wrinkles and fine lines as well as a softening of deeper lines. You will also see improved skin tone and texture and immediate contraction of the skin with reduction in pore size. Additionally it stimulates new collagen, you will see plumping of the skin up to six months after the procedure!

 

Winter months are the optimum time to receive your laser treatment. Call our office today to schedule your complimentary consultation with Dr. Clarissa Kroese or Raquel Merlini, RN and turn back the clock on your skin. 248-524-0620.

Day versus Night Moisturizer, Learn the reasons why you may need different products

When we are young and first start using a face moisturizer, most people typically buy one product and use it both in the morning and at night. You can do this but there are advantages to using two different products. Your skin is exposed to two different environments and pairing the right product will help keep your skin’s youthful glow. We like to think of it in terms of Daytime Protect, Nighttime Correct.

Protect during the day

During the day our faces are exposed to the sun. Protection from the harmful rays must be your first priority. Daytime moisturizers must contain an SPF to protect your skin. Additionally, if you wear makeup a lighter consistency is best and allows for ease in makeup application. Many daytime lotions also come tinted which acts not only as a protectant but as your foundation as well.

Correct at night

Nighttime is an excellent time for deeper hydration and correcting your skins tone and texture. During the day your skin is exposed to air pollutants such as dust, dirt and smog bacteria. Night moisturizers are often thicker with more ingredients for healing/correcting any exposure and nourishing your skin while you sleep. Retinol is often present in a night cream. It is deactivated when exposed to sun therefore it is perfect to team with your night moisturizer. A good retinol will boost collagen production, reduce wrinkles and prevent fine lines. It can also speed cell turnover and unclog your pores which reduces acne and pore size.

The number one thing to take away is the importance of taking care of your skin and using a quality moisturizer day and night. Our skincare professionals can work with you to ensure you’re using the correct product for your skin type. We offer complimentary skincare product analysis. Simply bring in all your current products and one of our highly qualified skincare providers will review them with you and determine what is best for your skin. With thousands of products on the market it is nice to have an expert’s help. Call today to set up your free skincare consultation. 248-524-3622
