No Sweat Summer: Botox for Hyperhidrosis

June 13, 2024

Neurotoxins like Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin are renowned for their ability to soften fine lines and wrinkles, but their benefits extend far beyond cosmetic enhancements. From tackling excessive sweating to addressing non-cosmetic concerns, these treatments offer a wide range of possibilities for enhancing both appearance and quality of life. In this blog post, we’ll explore how neurotoxins can effectively manage hyperhidrosis, a medical condition characterized by uncontrollable sweating, and provide relief for those who struggle with this common yet often overlooked issue.

Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition marked by excessive sweating, typically occurring in specific areas such as the underarms, palms, or feet. For many individuals, this condition can be more than just a nuisance—it can significantly interfere with daily activities and cause embarrassment. While topical antiperspirants offer some relief, they may not always suffice, prompting individuals to seek alternative treatment options to manage their symptoms.

Neurotoxin injections offer a highly effective solution for managing hyperhidrosis by targeting the underlying cause of excessive sweating. These injections work by blocking the nerve signals that stimulate the sweat glands, thereby reducing sweat production in the treated areas. While the most commonly treated areas include the underarms, palms, and feet, neurotoxin injections can be tailored to address individual needs and concerns.

Neurotoxins like Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin go beyond simply softening fine lines and wrinkles. In addition to the ‘traditional’ areas like the Top 3 (Glabella, Crow’s Feet, and Forehead), these treatments offer numerous possibilities for addressing both cosmetic and non-cosmetic concerns

  1. Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition characterized by excessive sweating caused by overactive sweat glands most commonly seen in the underarms, palms, or feet. Many people suffer from excessive sweating regardless of their body temperature which can be embarrassing and interfere with their daily activities. In some cases, topical antiperspirants are not enough and patients may need to explore alternative options. Here’s how neurotoxins can help!
  2. The treatment works by blocking the nerve signals that instruct the sweat glands to become active. It can take up to two weeks for the results of Botox injections for hyperhidrosis to become evident. Depending on each person as well as the treatment area – the number of units needed varies however some patients may require 100 or more units to achieve optimal results. Like any non-surgical treatment, results are not permanent but can last around 4-6 months. Also a common misconception is that Botox injections may trigger compensatory sweating in other areas of the body. However, rest assured, such occurrences are extremely rare and are not permanent.
  3. Treatment areas include: Underarms, Palms, and Feet

Neurotoxin injections offer a versatile and effective solution for managing hyperhidrosis, providing relief for individuals struggling with excessive sweating. By targeting the underlying cause of the condition, these treatments can significantly improve quality of life and restore confidence. If you’re dealing with hyperhidrosis and seeking relief, consider exploring the possibilities offered by neurotoxin injections under the guidance of a qualified medical professional. Say goodbye to sweat stains and hello to a newfound sense of comfort and confidence!

Bye Bye Breakouts: Acne Awareness Month

June 13, 2024

June is Acne Awareness Month, and this month we’re shining a spotlight on a common yet often misunderstood skin condition that affects millions worldwide. Join us as we raise awareness, share insights, and empower individuals to navigate the journey to clearer, healthier skin.

Acne is a common skin concern that affects people of all ages and skin types, often causing frustration and embarrassment. From hormonal fluctuations to excess sebum production, the causes of acne are diverse and multifaceted. However, with the advancements in medSPA treatments, managing and treating acne has become more accessible and effective than ever before. In this blog post, we’ll explore some of the most innovative medSPA solutions for banishing breakouts and achieving clearer, smoother skin.

Understanding Acne: Before diving into treatment options, it’s essential to understand the underlying causes of acne. Acne occurs when hair follicles become clogged with oil and dead skin cells, leading to the formation of whiteheads, blackheads, pimples, and cysts. Hormonal changes, genetics, diet, and skincare products can all contribute to the development of acne.

MedSPA Solutions:

  1. BroadBand Light (BBL) Treatment: BroadBand Light (BBL) is a cutting-edge photofacial treatment that harnesses the power of light energy to target acne at its source. By delivering multiple wavelengths of light into the skin, BBL promotes collagen production, reduces inflammation, and eliminates acne-causing bacteria. The BBL Clear treatment specifically targets acne, using a combination of blue, yellow, and infrared light to clear breakouts and promote skin healing.
  2. VI Chemical Peels: VI Chemical Peels are multi-faceted treatments designed to address various triggers and symptoms of acne. The VI Peel Purify is formulated to sweep away dead skin cells, unclog pores, and eliminate acne bacteria, resulting in fewer breakouts and smoother skin texture. For those dealing with acne scars and hyperpigmentation, the VI Peel Purify with Precision Plus offers a comprehensive solution by targeting melanin production and promoting skin renewal.
  3. Hydrafacials: Hydrafacials offer a customizable facial experience that combines exfoliation, extraction, and hydration to address acne and improve overall skin health. By delivering acne treatments directly to the skin, Hydrafacials can effectively target current breakouts, exfoliate at a deeper level, and prevent acne from returning. When combined with other medSPA treatments, Hydrafacials create a foundation for optimal results.

It’s important to note that consistency is key when it comes to treating acne with medSPA solutions. Patients may require multiple sessions spaced over several weeks to achieve optimal results. Additionally, proper skincare maintenance and a healthy lifestyle can help enhance the effectiveness of medSPA treatments and prolong their benefits.

With the advancements in medSPA technology and treatments, managing acne has never been more achievable. Whether you’re dealing with occasional breakouts or persistent acne, there’s a medSPA solution tailored to your needs. By incorporating innovative treatments like BBL, VI Chemical Peels, and Hydrafacials into your skincare routine, you can bid farewell to breakouts and hello to clearer, smoother skin.

5 Self-Care Tips for Mental Health Awareness Month

May 21, 2024

1. Rise and really shine

Hitting snooze might seem like a tempting extra few minutes of sleep, but it often leads to a groggy start and a rushed morning. Instead of hitting snooze, embrace the opportunity to kickstart your day with intention. You’ll find that starting your day on the right foot sets a positive tone for the rest of the day ahead. So, resist the urge to hit snooze and seize the day.

2. Have an attitude of gratitude

Grab a notebook and write everything you’re thankful for in a gratitude journal. It can be as simple as a warm cup of coffee or a sunny day. Research has shown people who write in a gratitude journal regularly tend to feel happier and less stressed.

3. Tune into good news

Nowadays, it’s almost impossible to ignore the negative news circulating in the media and it can be overwhelming. But, there are also a ton of good things happening! Subscribe to channels that share good news stories for daily doses of positivity on your social media timelines.

4. Breathe in, breathe out, repeat

Meditation allows you to take a moment to pause, breathe, and relax which is extremely beneficial for your emotional well-being and overall health. Practice meditating to cope with stress and find balance throughout the day.

5. Catch quality Zzzz’s

Sleep is important to your brain’s performance, mood, and physical and mental health. The blue light from your phone can disrupt your body’s melatonin production and circadian rhythm. Instead of scrolling, read a book to wind down before bed.

Mental Health, Q+A

Q+A with Imani Semien

May 21, 2024

Imani Semien is a yoga instructor, space holder and Reiki practitioner in Houston, Tx. Other titles that Imani holds are mother, wife and educator. As a Louisiana native, Imani decided to move to Houston in the midst of the global pandemic in 2020 with hopes to begin a new life and start her career in education. As an educator, the stresses of work and motherhood pushed her into mindfulness practices such as meditation, yoga and journaling. Imani now holds space for other women and mothers to find healing within themselves using these same practices. One of her future goals is to open a wellness center that provides many forms of holistic healing treatments along with pre and postnatal education and care. 

Q+A

1. How did you begin your work?

I began my work in 2021 shortly after the COVID pandemic ended. I found myself overwhelmed re-entering the workforce after spending much of 2020 in isolation. As a new mom starting a new career, I experienced anxiety and high levels of stress from constantly worrying about the wellbeing of my children while I was at work. I knew that many other women and mothers experienced this as well and I wanted to create a space where women could gather to work through these stressful experiences while also building connections within the community. I received my yoga teacher certification in 2022 and started holding Women’s Healing Circles shortly after. It was a journey to build my confidence to speak on topics that I was still working through, but from those experiences I have made so many connections in the Houston area.

2. Why did you want to go into this type of work?

I wanted to get into this type of work because so many women feel that they need to have a strong face and smile through everything they experience, but truthfully, every person deserves a safe space where they can release all of the things that may cause stress or anxiety. Coming from experience, it is hard to be vulnerable sometimes because I think people are judging me or I feel that I should be more grateful for the things I have. While it is important to have gratitude, we must also acknowledge that some of the things we love can contribute to our stress levels. I want to be a safe space where people can be vulnerable, let down their walls and just exist without judgment or social expectations.

3. How do you stay mindful when things get stressful?

When things get stressful for me, I try my best to name all of the feelings that I experience in that moment. Next, I empty my brain in my journal or in the notes section of my phone. I describe everything that I am feeling, every moment within the day that may have upset me or thrown me off of schedule and any stressful thoughts I may have had up until that point. After writing, I sit silently for about 30 seconds breathing slowly. Lastly, I allow myself to release these thoughts by simply stating “These thoughts/emotions do not serve me. It is time to let you go.” Releasing emotions always gives me a fresh start of my day no matter what time it is.

4. Why is mental health important to you?

Mental health is important to me because everything begins in the mind. Every thought and idea is created in your mind then is physically manifested in the world around you. If we have poor mental health, then our thoughts and ideas may become dark which results in living in darkness, sadness and misery. Good mental health turns into a higher quality of life.

5. What do you hope people learn from the work you do?

I hope people learn different ways to stay mindful and prioritize mental health through day to day life.

Q+A

1. How did you begin your work?

I began doing this work after I left NYC and the fashion industry. It was through my own healing experience with reiki and crystal healing.

2. Why did you want to go into this type of work?

I wanted to get into this work when I finally was able to feel my inner light reactivated. My first session changed something in me that I prayed for years that regular therapy wasn’t able to touch on. This was something deeper, more profound, and spiritual. I wanted to be able to give others what had been giving to me. 

3. How do you stay mindful when things get stressful?

This is a great question, a few different things I love to do, but most deal with coming back into my body and out of my head. I love to practice yoga, ride my bike, or dance my heart out! I also really love to journal when I can’t seem to quite my mind. 

4. Why is mental health important to you?

Because life is too short and too beautiful to waste a moment of it.

5. What do you hope people learn from the work you do?

I hope that people learn that you can create the life of your dreams. No matter what you have endured, transformation is possible if you are willing to be radically open and honest with yourself. I know what rock bottom feels like and I know what it is to grow from that and what a dream it is to be the co-creator of your life.

4 Skin Types and How to Treat Them

April 9, 2024

When it comes to skincare, one size definitely does not fit all. Your skin type plays a crucial role in determining the products and routines that will work best for you. Whether you have acne-prone, dry, oily, or combination skin, understanding your skin type is the first step towards achieving a radiant complexion. Let’s delve into the characteristics of each skin type and how to care for them effectively.

Acne-Prone Skin:

Acne-prone skin is characterized by frequent breakouts, including blackheads, whiteheads, and pimples. This skin type is often prone to inflammation and can be sensitive to certain skincare ingredients. To manage acne-prone skin effectively, it’s essential to use gentle, non-comedogenic products that won’t clog pores or exacerbate breakouts. Look for ingredients like salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide, and niacinamide, which can help control acne while soothing inflammation. Consistency is key, so establish a daily skincare routine and stick to it to keep breakouts at bay.

Product Recommendations:

  • Bakuchiol Treatment by milk + honey, This serum-plus-moisturizer hybrid treatment is formulated with bakuchiol, a plant-based alternative to retinol. It helps improve the appearance of fine lines, premature aging skin, and skin tone — without the common side effects of retinols (photosensitivity and skin irritation). This powerhouse treatment contains hyaluronic acid and antioxidant-rich botanicals, such as black willow bark extract, edelweiss stem cell extract, and bladderwrack, which provide a trifecta of exfoliating, skin-brightening, and skin-softening properties.
  • Clear Deep Cleansing Mask by COSMEDIX, Clear is a clarifying deep cleansing face mask that helps improve skin tone and texture by gently drawing out impurities to help unclog pores for a clearer-looking complexion that glows. Clear is formulated with kaolin clay, salicylic acid and sulfur to help gently exfoliate and trap excess oil and impurities that could potentially clog pores. Niacinamide, a form of vitamin B3, helps improve skin texture, while soothing natural botanicals help reduce the appearance of redness without leaving skin tight or dry.

Spa Services:

  • Acne-Targeting Facial, Our acne targeting treatment combines potent, yet gentle products with expert techniques to leave you with a glowing complexion. This service includes a same day peel, light therapy, lymphatic drainage and extractions.

MEDSpa Services:

  • BBL Photofacial, BBL Photofacial is a corrective phototherapy treatment that uses Broadband Light (BBL) to target signs of aging, sun damage, and acne.
  • VI Peel Purify, The VI Peel Purify is a highly effective treatment for acne and addresses a variety of concerns caused by acne symptoms. This unique formula combination increases cellular turnover to open pores and reduce comedones, acne, and balance the skin for fewer breakouts.

 

Dry Skin:

Dry skin lacks moisture and often feels tight, rough, or flaky. This skin type may be prone to redness and irritation, especially in harsh weather conditions. To combat dryness, opt for hydrating skincare products that nourish and replenish the skin’s moisture barrier. Look for ingredients like hyaluronic acid, glycerin, and ceramides, which attract and retain moisture. Additionally, incorporate a rich moisturizer into your daily routine, and consider using a humidifier to add moisture to the air in your home.

Product Recommendations:

  • Intense Hydration by milk + honey, Intense Hydration Cream is just that — an intensely rich, luxurious moisturizer that boosts hydration, restores luminosity, and supports dry, tired skin.
  • Luxe Face Oil by milk + honey, Formulated with antioxidant-rich botanical extracts and natural sources of Vitamin E including Prickly Pear Seed Oil and Baobab Seed Oil, the Luxe Face Oil is designed to boost hydration and brighten the appearance of skin tone, improving the look of skin’s natural elasticity.
  • Hyaluronic Sea Serum by OSEA, This fast-absorbing, concentrated serum smooths the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. OSEA’s newly upgraded formula, powered by two molecular weights of hyaluronic acid, seaweed and snow mushroom, works to restore and maintain optimal moisture levels, keeping your skin hydrated any time of day. Clinically and dermatologist tested.

Spa Services:

  • HydraFacials, Our Signature HydraFacial MD® treatment incorporates hydra-dermabrasion, painless extractions, and an infusion of powerful, nourishing nutrients, enhanced by a neck + décolleté treatment to target dry skin.
  • Upgrade to the Ultimate HydraFacial MD®, and achieve maximum results. This treatment combines hydra-dermabrasion, painless extractions, neck + décolleté treatment, detoxifying lymphatic drainage, and your choice of the Brightening or DermaBuilder treatment. This brilliant treatment finishes with ReGen GF™, our age-defying growth factor serum, leaving your skin radiant and younger-looking.

MEDSpa Services:

  • SKINVIVE, Smooth your skin and boost hydration with SKINVIVE. A Hyaluronic Acid microdroplet injectable designed to give you visible glow for up to 6 months after one treatment.

 

Oily Skin:

Oily skin tends to produce excess sebum, leading to a shiny complexion and enlarged pores. Individuals with oily skin may be more prone to acne and breakouts due to the accumulation of oil and debris in the pores. To manage oily skin, focus on balancing oil production without stripping the skin of its natural oils. Look for lightweight, oil-free products that mattify the skin and regulate sebum production. Ingredients like witch hazel, salicylic acid, and tea tree oil can help control oiliness and minimize the appearance of pores. Incorporating a gentle cleanser and a lightweight moisturizer into your skincare routine can help maintain a healthy balance.

Product Recommendations:

  • Gel Cleanser by milk + honey, The Gel Cleanser is a gel-to-foam face wash that gently, yet thoroughly, removes dirt, excess oil, and impurities, leaving skin soft and moisturized.
  • Oil-free moisturizers

Spa Services:

  • LUX Facial, A customized 75 minute facial, this treatment uses microcurrent technologies. The skin is stimulated to encourage collagen production and elastin production. Your esthetician will customize this service to fit your skin care needs.
  • Express HydraFacial®, This treatment is the foundation of Express HydraFacial®: a non-invasive, multi-step treatment that combines the benefits of hydra-dermabrasion, automated painless extractions, and an infusion of antioxidants, hyaluronic acid, and peptides. Experience instant results with no downtime or irritation.

 

Combination Skin:

Combination skin is characterized by a mix of different skin types, with some areas being oily (usually the T-zone) and others being dry or normal. Managing combination skin can be challenging, as you need to address the needs of multiple skin types simultaneously. To care for combination skin effectively, use targeted products that address the specific concerns of each area. Consider using a gentle cleanser, followed by a balancing toner to remove excess oil and impurities without over-drying the skin. Additionally, use lightweight, non-comedogenic moisturizers that hydrate dry areas without exacerbating oiliness. Don’t forget to apply sunscreen daily to protect your skin from sun damage and premature aging.

Product Recommendations:

  • Atmosphere Protection Cream by OSEA, Help your skin face the day. This everyday lightweight moisturizer hydrates while providing barrier protection to skin exposed to environmental pollutants. OSEA’s antioxidant-rich formula is full of seaweed, shea butter and omega-rich oils. Quickly absorbs to a silky finish, ideal under sunscreen or makeup. An OSEA favorite that’s soon to be yours.
  • Charcoal Clay Masque by milk + honey, Activated charcoal and bentonite clay effectively pull impurities from the skin. Organic green tea leaf oil reduces excess sebum and bacteria while organic aloe leaf juice keeps skin hydrated. This refreshing masque helps to minimize the look of redness and inflammation, as well as diminishes the appearance of pores.
  • Multi-tasking serums designed to balance and hydrate without clogging pores

Spa Services:

  • Signature Facial, Our multi-step process is carefully customized to your skin type and skin care needs. Includes cleansing, masques, extractions, toning, and intense moisture.
  • Same-Day Peels, A corrective solution to improve the skin’s texture and health by removing dead and damaged outer layers of skin. Choose from: Blueberry Smoothie Peel, Benefit Peel, Purity Peel, or Blueberry Jessner.

Understanding your skin type is essential for creating an effective skincare routine that addresses your specific needs. Whether you’re battling acne, combating dryness, managing oiliness, or navigating combination skin, there are products and treatments available to help you achieve a healthy, radiant complexion.

3 Reasons Why You Need a Facial

April 9, 2024

In today’s fast-paced world, it’s easy to forget the importance of self-care. However, taking time for yourself is crucial for maintaining your overall well-being. More than just a luxury, facials offer numerous benefits for your skin and your mental health. Here are three reasons why you should include them in your self-care routine:

Reason 1: You’re feeling stressed and could use a little ‘me time’ to unwind.

In a world filled with constant pressures, stress has become unavoidable. From work deadlines to personal responsibilities, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. Self-care practices like getting a facial can provide much-needed relief from stress.

Our spa locations offer a serene and calming environment where you can unwind and focus solely on yourself. The gentle massage techniques used during facials help to release tension from your facial muscles, promoting relaxation and rejuvenation.

Reason 2: Your skin is feeling dry or dull and needs a little boost to feel refreshed 

Environmental factors, aging, and lifestyle habits all take a toll on your skin, leaving it dull, dry, and lackluster. A facial can work wonders in restoring your skin’s natural radiance and vitality.

Our range of facials involve a combination of cleansing, exfoliating, and hydrating treatments tailored to your skin’s specific needs. By removing dead skin cells and unclogging pores, facials help to reveal fresh, glowing skin underneath. Additionally, esthetician-selected nourishing masks and serums used during facials deliver intense hydration, leaving your skin feeling soft, supple, and rejuvenated.

Whether you’re struggling with dryness, dullness, or uneven texture, facials can provide the boost your skin needs to look and feel its best. With regular facials, you can maintain a healthy and radiant complexion year-round, regardless of the external factors that may be affecting your skin.

Reason 3: You want to smooth fine lines and promote collagen production

As we age, our skin naturally loses collagen and elasticity, leading to the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. While aging is a natural process, there are steps you can take to slow down its effects and maintain a youthful appearance.

Facials offer several anti-aging benefits that can help minimize the signs of aging and promote a more youthful complexion. Our facials incorporate ingredients such as retinol, vitamin C, and peptides, known for stimulating collagen production and improving skin elasticity. Facial massage techniques also help increase blood circulation and lymphatic drainage, promoting a more toned and lifted appearance.

By investing in regular facials, you can effectively target and address the signs of aging, helping you to maintain a youthful and radiant complexion for years to come. Rather than resorting to invasive procedures or harsh skin care products, opt for a gentle and holistic approach to anti-aging with regular facials.

In conclusion, facials are not just a luxury indulgence; they are an essential component of a well-rounded self-care routine. From reducing stress and promoting relaxation to addressing specific skincare concerns, facials offer a multitude of benefits for both your skin and your overall well-being. So why wait? Treat yourself to a facial today and experience the transformative power of self-care firsthand. Your skin will thank you for it!
