It’s all about the beauty drip

Posted by on Jul 28, 2017 | 0 comments

If you’re a beauty junkie you might have heard of the beauty drips. It is much talked about in the beauty community and the social media spectrum, though for some this might be something new or unheard of, a lot of women are already having it done for obvious reasons. For those already benefiting from what it can do, it is definitely worth the investment.   With technology gradually changing and improving, it’s not new that the beauty industry is tagging along. So long is the glutathione pills that you have to drink with collagen pills or vitamin C at least twice a day to achieve that whiter and glowing skin.  Though readily available and more cost-effective, scientists and researchers have known for quite some time, that oral glutathione makes little to no difference at all.  It’s well documented that glutathione available in supplement form, is mostly destroyed through the digestive process.  Therefore, it is of little to no difference, unless it can penetrate the cell walls, which it cannot.   Now with the IV beauty drips, it’s easier and faster!  No need to wait for months to achieve your dream skin! So how does this work? Glutathione along with other vitamins and mineral cocktails are directly injected into our bloodstream just like a normal IV Drip for optimal results. About 90% of the nutrients get retained by our body since it is coursed through the veins. This procedure is performed by our highly trained nurses so rest assured that it’s guaranteed safe. But fret not, as this is performed by our highly trained nurses. The platinum beauty drip which is our clinic favorite, what with all the anti aging, rejuvenating and whitening benefits it gives, takes about 15 minutes with a good vein and about 45 minutes if you want to take the slow route. When done every one to two weeks interval, you can see that your skin looks more vibrant and radiating with youthful glow.   Skin House offers different variants of the beauty drips, depending on how fast you want to see the results.  We also have something that would hasten your metabolism or simply the variant that aids with anti aging.  For the conservatives, we have the IV Glutathione Push with Vitamin C that does the trick. Before you take the plunge and hop on the beauty wagon, here are a few things to consider. Never use for people under chemotherapy. It may decrease the potency of anti-cancer drugs. Not advised for people with chronic kidney failure and liver problem because it may cause digestive complications such as sever pain and persistent diarrhea. Do not use during pregnancy and breastfeeding, May worsen asthmatic episodes, thus it is not recommended for asthmatic individuals. If all is well and good, take that phone and get that much needed beauty boost.                                                                  ...

Revlite for Treatment of Acne and SCars

Posted by on Mar 25, 2017 | 1 comment

Skin House has always been an advocate of continuous learning.  A couple of weeks back, we were invited to update our knowledge and maximize the potential of our Revlite machine. Q-switched Nd:Yag laser have shown to be an effective treatment for acne scars and, in some cases, even acne.   With proper settings and understanding of what the machine can do, the treatment can go significantly positive for the patient. Revlite is a non ablative laser that uses photoacoustic technology pulse that heats the skin, causing enough damage to encourage the healing response of the skin.  The localized thermal damage causes an increase in the production of collagen and improves the appearance of scars. The treatment is basically painless. And the procedure can be performed for almost any skin type even patients with active acne.  Beyond reducing the appearance of the acne scars, Revlite lessens acne growth, and helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles.  The skin will look incredibly younger and more vibrant. We believe in providing the best service at reasonable prices.  We keep ourselves up-to-date with what’s hot and what’s not.  Soon, as an advocate in looking fresh in the morning even without makeup, we will be introducing semi-permanent makeup – 6D eyebrow embroidery or powder effect, eyeliner, and lip embroidery – all at impeccable style and reasonable prices.

Experience the Power of GentleMax Pro Laser Hair Removal

Posted by on Nov 3, 2013 | 23 comments

It’s hard to be a woman especially with all the expectations in our society to look a certain way – We are expected to have a great body, flawless skin and to have visible hair in the underarms is just unacceptable. With proper diet, exercise and the right attitude, all these can be arranged.  Go to the gym or try Cohen to get that rockin’ body!  As for flawless skin and hair – that is where we come in!   Skin House Beauty and Laser Clinic happen to have the so-called “Rolls Royce” of laser hair removal machines. GentleMax Pro is a combination of the fastest and most powerful 755 nm Alexandrite laser with the 1064 nm long pulse ND:YAG laser.  What this means is that we have Diode, Alexandrite and ND:Yag which provides us the capability to offer the best treatment for all Skin Types.   Photo Courtesty of Syneron Candela Syneron Candela, the maker of this machine, is after all the global leader in the medical aesthetic marketplace.  When you ask a non-biased dermatologist or cosmetic surgeon, they will tell you to go to a practice that offer different varieties of LASERs so you can find the one that is more suited for your hair and skin type. Unlike other laser hair removal machines, GentleMax Pro has a patented Dynamic Cooling Device (DCD) that provides consistent, epidermal cooling and unparalleled comfort for the patients. DCD prepares skin for treatment by selectively spraying the upper layers (or epidermis) with a cooling burst of cryogen in adjustable spray/delay durations, milliseconds before the laser pulse. DCD’s unique design provides excellent visibility throughout the entire process, is operator independent, and will provide the same epidermal protection no matter how fast the laser is fired. This balances the heat so there is not much discomfort.  With this amazing technology, there won’t be any need for cooling gel, which tends to be a little messy when doing Full Bikini or Brazilian and Legs.  Treatment for lower legs only takes about 30 minutes, including the spot test, which takes up around 3 to 5 minutes. Imagine, underarm laser only takes around 10 minutes?  You’re in and you can just go out to go about your merry ways.  Furthermore, the FDA has approved GentleMax Pro for permanent hair reduction.   Just to give an overview: Alexandrite also known as GenteLase is a very powerful near infrared laser hair removal machine for patients with lighter skin types I-III. These are Caucasians and Asians with very light skin tone. It has excellent pick up by melanin (skin and hair pigment), which makes it great for patients with lighter skin tones, but not a good option for those with darker skin.  Alexandrite laser provides quicker, safer and more effective results compared to other lasers with proper settings.  Since it has the shortest pulse duration (or cooking time), it can also effectively lase thinner or lighter pigmented hairs.   Long Pulse ND:Yag also known as GentleYag is an infrared laser that is most effective for patients with Skin Types IV-VI.  The principle behind laser hair removal is selective photothermolysis,...

Knowing Your Glutathione

Posted by on Oct 30, 2013 | 0 comments

GLUTATHIONE is the master antioxidant that counteracts free radicals, boosts the immune system and detoxifies the liver.  Normally produced by our body, our glutathione levels take a dip at age 45 to 50.  Stress, cigarettes, caffeine, alcohol poor diet, toxins, over-the-counter medications, aging and a lot of the mundane things in our life deplete the body of this important antioxidant.     What are the benefits of Glutathione?   Glutathione is the master antioxidant, which means that it has the ability to bind itself to toxins and free radicals for removal from our body through urine or bile.  Glutathione has 3 amino acids – cysteine, glycine and glutamic acid.   The most important of which is the sulfur-rich amino acid is cysteine that traps toxins in the body.  This is rich in eggs, garlic and whey protein.  Aesthetically, patients take glutathione for its whitening side effect, whilst others take it because it decreases the effects of aging and increase longevity.   What are the side effects of Glutathione?   Side effects that are possible with Glutathione include hypersensitivity reaction (allergic reaction), palpitations, chills, fever, insomnia and rash.  It is advised for patient to eat before having glutathione injected.   How soon can patient see the whitening effects of Glutathione?  Is it better to have Intravenous Glutathione compared to Oral Glutathione?   The effect would depend on the patient’s skin type.  Most patients would notice glow on their skin after 2 weeks.  IV Glutathione has faster onset of action compared to the oral glutathione.   Does Glutathione have anti-aging effects as well?   Yes, glutathione has anti-aging effects since it helps our body eliminate toxins and wastes that may hasten our aging process.  It will also help to try placenta injection in conjunction with glutathione for this purpose.   At what age can the patient start having IV Glutathione?   When patient is of legal age, and is able to give full consent to the treatment.   Is it safe to do IV Glutathione indefinitely?  What would be the suggested frequency of IV Glutathione once desired lightening is seen?   There is a limit if IV Glutathione will be done for life.  As much as possible, when lightening effect is already observed, one may shift to oral glutathione which is safer.   Aside from pregnant women, who are contraindicated with IV glutathione?   Patients who are breastfeeding, and those with hypersensitivity reaction would be contraindicated with Glutathione.  In addition, patients with severe liver, kidney problem, uncontrolled diabetes and thyroid problem would be contraindicated as well.   Can a person with liver problems benefit from IV Glutathione?   Yes, patients may benefit as long as liver is not severely damaged since the liver has to process the glutathione being injected as well.   How about a person with Hepa B?   There are no studies yet that a person with Hepa B may benefit from Glutathione.   What would be the brand of choice by dermatologists?   Definitely, one that is BFAD approved.   What are the suggested dosages to get the best effect?  How many times a week can a...

The Pristine Diamond Microdermabrasion (aka Diamond Peel)

The Pristine Diamond Microdermabrasion (aka Diamond Peel)

A diamond peel treatment is a form of microdermabrasion, a popular non-surgical cosmetic procedure that resurfaces the skin to give it back its healthy, youthful glow. Diamond peel treatments are a gentler microdermabrasion treatment that is designed to remove fine lines and wrinkles. A diamond peel treatment is a non-surgical and non-invasive procedure in which the skin is exfoliated to remove dead skin cells and other skin impurities using actual diamond chips to vacuum the skin away. In order to do this, the top layer of skin is removed in order to rejuvenate the skin. The epidermal cell structure is actually restored, increasing the skin’s elasticity and collagen levels.

During a Diamond Peel, a skilled professional gently runs a hand-held device with a diamond tipped wand over the skin. A steady layer of diamond dust is applied to the skin and then vacuumed away, exfoliating away dead skin cells and removing fine lines and wrinkles. Probe tips of varying sizes are used to get into the tighter areas, such as around the eyes, nose, and mouth. Probes of different coarseness are also used on spots of the face where the skin is more sensitive. Each treatment should take about 20 minutes, but may take longer depending on the special needs of your skin. For instance, if you are getting treatment for deep stretch marks or another specific skin condition, the procedure will take longer because they require more thorough, focused work. Immediately following treatment, your skin will look slightly pink and rosy, but should not be irritated or red. Even after the first treatment, you will see visible results. Age spots, fine lines and wrinkles, freckles, and stretch marks will be less noticeable, or may disappear completely. The results of each treatment will not be lost, but instead will gradually improve with each treatment you have. For long-term results, you will need to schedule regular maintenance appointments to ensure that the effects of your peel are not lost. PRISTINE Pristine Diamond Microdermabrasion (aka Diamond Peel) offers aesthetic practitioners the most advances exfoliation system, with applications for both facial and body treatments, providing patients with results they can see and feel. Designed to improve the overall appearance and quality of the skin, Pristine Diamond Peel exfoliates the outer layer of the epidermis to treat a variety of skin conditions ranging from aging skin due to sun exposure, acne, scars tissue and stretch marks. Based on the dual mechanisms of exfoliation and adjustable vacuum stimulation, the pristine diamond peel system exfoliates dead cells from the skin surface, cleaning the pores from the inside out and stimulates local blood flow and collagen production.  The diamond peel treatment renders a firm, fresh and more even complexion that continually improves over time.  The Pristine treatment is free of irritations and any discomfort, allowing patients to benefit from a fully customizable, clean aesthetic procedure that is relaxing and enjoyable and, most importantly, delivers results from the first treatment.
