HELP!

We all need help after the holidays with getting back on track- whether diet, exercise or skin care! Seems we all tend to run to check our health at the Doctors, or get our eyes examined, but do we check in with our Esthetician after eating everything chocolate in site? Hmm- that is the question.

I find a few of us need a bit of a push when it comes to skin care needs, and now is the time to get your skin care health up to par. Whether starting new products or just getting a facial treatment to skim off the holiday debris. I am a firm believer of exfoliants, and I have started carrying The Ordinary Brand of Lactic Acid, which is a mild exfoliant designed to not be aggressive in the peel. Slow slight peeling works just great when it comes to being out in public, or working all day in front of a camera (selfie).  Come in and lets get you started off right for the New Year, Great exfoliant facial, and home care with The Ordinary Lactic Acid Serum.

$13.50 for one fluid oz-

Product description

Size:1 oz

Lactic Acid is an alpha hydroxyl acid that exfoliates the skin. This 10% formulation offers mild exfoliation and is supported with a purified Tasmanian pepperberry known to reduce signs of inflammation and sensitivity that is often associated with exfoliation. This formula contains a studied Tasmanian Pepperberry derivative to help reduce irritation associated with acid use. This derivative is of plant origin and varies in colour seasonally and this colour variation may be apparent in the formula from time to time. Contraindications: Lactic Acid should not be used on sensitive, peeling or compromised skin. Please refer to additional sun protection note and other warnings in provided Directions. This pH of this formula is approximately 3.8. Lactic Acid has a pKa of 3.8 and pKa is the most important aspect to consider in formulating with acids. pKa implies acid availability. When pKa is close to pH, there is an ideal balance between salt and acidity, maximizing effectiveness of the acid.

Along with your skin care, make sure to have plenty of sun protection even in cool breezy days, especially on hikes and sunny days. No matter what time of year it is. Be safe.  Epicuren Lip Balm, Tube or Pot with SPF to keep your lips from chapping, $11 and our Active Sport $39
Just a quick note: Some of Imagery’s products will be discontinued this year due to new arrivals and technology. I keep striving to bring you the best products for our desert sun, and making sure they are high quality with results driven ingredients. Stay tuned for more information. New facial treatments arriving throughout Spring! Call for more information, and which treatment is best for you. See you soon. Denise

Getting ready for?

Hello, Happy end of summer?

With all this heat it’s time for me to tell you about some new facial treatments that will help cool you down. Is your skin feeling rough, dehydrated from this Arizona sun? What about dull and lifeless color? Well, I have the answer to all of your facial concerns. First Mitate- a super hyaluronic treatment that helps with all of those questions! First a special exfoliant or enzyme peel which could be papaya or cherry, even pumpkin in the summer, then if you are needing the vellus hair removed-(dermaplaning) that is a special treat, allowing  your skin to absorb the serum cocktails I mix. Then the beautiful feeling of the Mitate is applied and left on for about 15 min to soak all the wonderful ingredients in your skin. OOH so fine! Results are hydrated, brighter and soft skin. Did I mention firmer?

Second, Brightening treatment for signs of discoloration or dark spots, using licorice and Cherry enzymes with a liquid enzyme or peel this is the boost the skin needs to continue treatment. Hot compress is used to remove excess enzyme, and then the pigmentation cocktail with microcurrent designed to lift and brighten the tissue. I recommend a series of these treatments for optimum results. LED lights are along side of the microcurrent to push along the results. So much fun to see the changes.

Third, the newest addition to Imagery, Rezenerate, I am really enjoying this new toy. With any choice of facial or alone, I can use this pen, and stamp in my customized cocktail version of Oxygen Plasma, MSN for scar tissue or deep lines, Rosacea serum for redness, and collagen serums for tissue strength.  Cool down and complete with our nanoglobes,

Most of you have experienced my ice globes from years past, now through summer I am using them with all my treatments- or my hot/cold hammer to help with relaxation and closing pores. Helps to set in the creams and serums for a lasting results.

August is approaching, and the heat isn’t going away for a long time, If you don’t plan a retreat to cool weather, plan to escape and relax, with Reiki added or soundscapes, with me at Imagery. Complete your experience and stay cool.

Hormones and Adult Acne

It seems as though the year is starting off with some new skin conditions, and it has to do with cortisol levels, and stress. Now that the holidays are over I have noticed many of my clients with high stress and anxiety coming in more often for their treatments.  All of a sudden I feel like I am treating teens with skin problems! What is going on?

Okay, now that we know that stress, anxiety, and hormonal issues are the culprit, there are many other things to consider. Watch out for the milk products, high levels of milk and cheese cause acne breakouts and other skin abnormalities along with leveling out stomach acids. Be careful with the tomato sauces with high acid content, and read up on alkaline vs acid- you will be surprised how many foods fall into that category. I for one have learned the hard way, and acid foods are everywhere!

To combat this little set back:

#1- do not touch your face, spreading bacteria is a no, no, wait until you can get in to see me, and try not to rub or scrub too hard. We don’t want to spread the breakouts. Start taking a great probiotic twice a day if not more often. Drink a lot of water.

#2- use a mild prep cleanser with fruit acids or salicylic acid, which is a light exfoliant to gently remove skin cells for faster turn over. Could be Vitamin C or lactic acid facial wash, if the bumps are large and red, glycolic facial wash helps to keep the swelling down. While clearing the complexion, and leveling the oils present in the skin.

#3- use serums under the cream, mild vitamin c or green tea extract with tea tree oil infused helps with redness and inflammation. The Vitamin C helps with discoloration and keeping the skin clear. Imagery’s Retinol serum is fantastic to help with gentle cell turnover without drying out the surface. Great for all skin types.

#4- twice a month facial treatments to release and exfoliate the skin cells for a faster healing time. Using LED, and High frequency enhances the treatment to be more affective. I will help you with your home care to make sure it’s for healing and clearing. Usually, plan on 3-6 months for the deeper acne bumps to subside, could be shorter time depending on the condition of your skin. Call me for consultation or if you have questions.

602-264-5915

Oxygen at it’s best- I use many different Oxygen facial modalities to help restore luster to the complexion after and during acne breakouts or pigmentation scaring. Oxygen is one of my favorite facial treatments for anyone who needs brightening and lightening. Plan 75-90 minutes with extractions- call for fee’s and times available.

Pain, Disease, Stress, Depression, Anxiety, Sleeplessness, ETC

According to an article written by Knutek, Microcurrent is the solution to a lot of these issues.  Imagery has been using Microcurrent/LED in combination with Knutek’s topical products since July 2017, and has noticed significant changes in clients using products along with the treatments.

Microcurrent has just been approved by the FDA to used for “brain stimulation”. Treatment centers are in the process of being opened all around the country as they have found that microcurrent is extremely effective in treating conditions such as Pain, Stress, Disease, Depression, Anxiety, Sleeplessness, Lack of Focus and in Therapeutic Skin Care including Non- Surgical Facelifts! MICROCURRENT IS A REVOLUTIONARY THERAPY THAT DRAMATICALLY INCREASES THE BODY’S ABILITY TO HEAL AND REPAIR ITSELF.  Microcurrent can increase the rate of healing by up to 5 times and do so safely and effectively.  Every function in the human body is electrically based. The electricity inside your cells provides the power for your body. When microcurrent is applied to the body at a specific frequency, it can have positive effects on the condition to tissues and organs. Which helps the body recuperate, promote pain relief, relax muscles, dissolve scar tissue and improve overall healing at accelerated rates.

Wanted to share this information with you, as I have been using some form of Microcurrent for several years, and with continued use can improve a multitude of skin conditions.  As 2017 leaves us, and 2018 approaches, I know there will be several new advances in skin care, and I will continue to bring you the latest news and continue to focus on great skin treatments and home care. Oxygen Plasma, and Microcurrent are working together to bring you a fresh new approach to natural facial firming and continued freshness to your skin. I can’t erase years of father time, but I can surely stop the clock for a timeless beauty.

Call me after January 2018, for your chance to experience Microcurrent/LED at it’s best.  602-264-5915 – YOURS FOR CONTINUED HEALTH, BEAUTY, AND BEYOND- DENISE
