Colorescience Mineral Makeup: Santa Barbara Medical Spa Event Recap

Our “Summer Skincare” event provided us with so much information that we have decided to split the recap into three posts – each dedicated to the three topics of the evening – all of which are equally important.  The first topic was about the Clarisonic Skin Care System and can be read here. The second topic was about Obagi Medical Products and can be read here. Our final topic is about Colorescience mineral makeup. 

What is Colorescience Mineral Makeup?

Colorescience is a sunscreen company with an emphasis on beauty.  The company operates under the motto “We will not compromise health for beauty or beauty for health”.  True to those words, Colorescience makeup is made up of pure minerals – there are no dyes, talcs, alcohols, mineral oils or fragrance in their products.  Colorescience uses titanium and zinc –  natural sunscreens – in their products so they protect against sun damage while also correcting your complexion.

Tip: Many makeup companies these days have introduced a “mineral” line of makeup but most of these only contain a trace amount of minerals.  To test the purity of mineral makeup, pour the powder into a glass of water. Mineral makeup should float on top, without falling through (see image on right).

Four Must-Haves from Colorescience

There are four daily steps that will lead to your most perfect canvas:

1 ) Prep and Prime: The first step to a perfect complexion is to minimize the look of pores and fill in fine lines and wrinkles.  Colorescience PRO offers four SPF 20 face primers to set the stage for seamless makeup application:

  • Skin Brightening Primer: illuminates and improves the look of your skin.  A yellow tint refines redness to deliver a vibrant glow.
  • Wild to Mild Primer: one of the most popular primers – Wild to Mild gives a sheer, sun-kissed look while protecting and soothing to even skin tones.
  • Chocolate Mousse Mattifying Primer: this cocoa-based primer is an excellent choice for oily or shiny complexions and darker skin tones.  It works to hydrate and balance and provides a matte finish.
  • About Face Calming Primer: for sensitive skin, this primer diminishes redness and irritation for a calmer complexion.

2) Colore and Correct: Hide imperfections and achieve an overall even skin tone when you colore and correct with Colorescience PRO foundations and correctors. Blend and layer to achieve maximum correction.

  • Sheer Creme Foundation: this silky foundation is designed for seamless coverage.  Use with a powder for a flawless finish.
  • Loose Mineral Foundation SPF 20: this lightweight, very water resistant powder feels as smooth as a cream, but doesn’t dry the skin.
  • Pressed Mineral Foundation: pressed minerals can provide light to full coverage without the thick look of traditional pressed powder.

3) Set and Refresh: Colorescience PRO setting mists turns minerals into a velvety finish.  They keep minerals in place while adding hydration to your skin.  Use throughout the day to revitalize your look. Three types of mist available: Sunforgettable to be used before, during and after sun exposure, Be Still for all skin types, and Problem Skin setting mist.

4) Protect and Shield: Sunforgettable SPF 30 and 50 are lightweight minerals that block 97% and 98.2% (respectively) of the UV rays. The minerals are translucent and feel barely-there so they can be used on men and children without looking like they have makeup on.  Dr. Terry Perkins, of Santa Barbara Cosmetic Surgery Center, recommends using sunscreen year round to keep your skin healthy and youthful. Colorescience Sunforgettable self-dispensing brushes make it easy for men, women, and children to apply, and re-apply, SPF throughout the day.

Tip: Clean the brush two to three times per week.  Spray the brush cleaner on a washcloth and hold brush upright (so the minerals won’t dispense) and swipe back and forth on the washcloth.

Clarisonic Skincare: Santa Barbara Medical Spa Event Recap

Our “Summer Skincare” event provided us with so much information that we have decided to split the recap into three posts – each dedicated to the three topics of the evening – all of which are equally important.  The first topic is about the Clarisonic Skin Care System.

What is the Clarisonic Skin Cleansing System?

The Clarisonic skin cleansing system, or popularly known as the “Clarisonic brush”, uses a patented sonic frequency of more than 300 movements per second to gently, and thoroughly, cleanse your skin.  It removes six times more makeup and two times more dirt than cleansing with your hands alone.  The inside area of the brush oscillates ten degrees in either direction, moving with the skin’s elasticity, while the outer ring of bristles stay stationary and act as a splash guard.  The movement of the bristles makes this brush unique to all the other electronic skin brushes on the market, which use a rotary movement that tugs at the skin and can cause damage. Use the Clarisonic with any cleanser of your choice as long as it is non-abrasive.

What are the benefits of cleansing with the Clarisonic?

If you use the Clarisonic on a regular basis, once in the morning and once in the evening, you will see many benefits, including:

  • Clearer, smoother skin
  • More product absorption – your cleaner skin will absorb moisturizers, and other facial products, more thoroughly and evenly
  • Less blackheads because it removes dirt and sebum (oil)
  • Minimized appearance of pores

Clarisonic Brush Heads: Which is right for you?

There are five types of brush heads available for the face, and one for the body. The facial brush heads target different skin types:

  • Normal: perfect for normal skin, shaving prep and use on the neck and chest (this is the brush head on the grey plastic base)
  • Sensitive: for sensitive to normal skin types (this is the brush that comes with all Clarisonic units)
  • Delicate: for delicate or extra-sensitive skin (this brush has a light blue plastic base)
  • Deep Pore: use for cleansing on oily skin, large pores, and is gentle enough for daily use
  • Acne: extra-plush with bristle gradation to provide gentle cleansing for sensitive and acne prone skin

Clarisonic Settings for Optimal Cleansing

Depending on the model you buy, the Clarisonic has different speeds, or settings, ranging from a sensitive cleanse to a deeper cleanse.  The Clarisonic Mia (a popular unit for travel that comes with an international charger) has one speed, while the Mia 2 has two speeds.  The Clarisonic PRO has four speeds to meet all skin cleansing needs.

Tips for the Clarisonic

  • We learned last night from the Clarisonic rep a secret that has to be shared! Your brush can do double duty for spot treatment. Pop out the center of the brush, snap it on the Clarisonic and use this smaller brush head for the area between the nose and the cheeks and the nose itself.
  • Clean your brush head with antibacterial soap at least once per week
  • Use a permanent marker to write the date on the back of the brush head and remember to replace the brush every three months
  • For those of you who like to use the Clarisonic on your back, there is a back handle now available that attaches to the Clarisonic Pro

At Evolutions Medical Spa we use the Clarisonic brush as part of our facial services. Dr. Perkins and our staff highly recommend incorporating the Clarisonic cleansing system into you skincare routine to maintain beautiful skin in between facial services.  The Clarisonic system and brush head replacements are available for purchase at Evolutions. 

Evolutions Event Recap: Dermal Fillers in Santa Barbara

Yesterday’s event at Evolutions Medical Spa in Santa Barbara was a treat for everyone. Our rep from Medicis (the company who makes Restylane, Perlane, and Dysport) delivered a thorough overview on dermal fillers and answered many questions from the audience.  After the presentation, guests were invited to watch Dr. Perkins perform a dermal filler treatment so that they could witness the immediate effects that fillers have!

Here is a recap of the evening’s presentation:

What is Restylane?
Restylane is a dermal filler that is made from hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring substance in your skin that provides fullness and elasticity.  As we age, hyaluronic acid diminishes and the skin loses volume.  Hyaluronic acid recruits water to the skin to encourage fullness. Restylane, and Perlane (another dermal filler), are made from cross-linked hyaluronic acid so that it is not metabolized as fast as the hyaluronic acid that naturally occurs in the body and this gives clients a result that can last six months or more.

What can dermal fillers – Restylane and Perlane – do for me?
Restylane and Perlane can be used to to add volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds.  Restylane can also be used for lip enhancement (for patients 21+ years). Restylane is a thinner product that is typically used for wrinkles, fine lines, and delicate areas. Perlane provides more structure and lift.  It is possible to use both products together. Which product you use is best determined by your clinician.  

Where can dermal fillers be used?
The areas treated by Restylane or Perlane are:

  • laugh lines
  • marionette lines
  • lipstick lines
  • corners of mouth
  • lips (Restylane only)
Restylane Filler Santa Barbara

 

How long do dermal fillers last for?
When you get a filler treatment, there is little to no downtime, and you will see results immediately.  Effects of the filler will last at least  six months. In a clinical study, 95% of patients who returned for a second treatment 4.5 to 9 months after initial treatment continued to see results for up to 18 months. For some patients, receiving a second treatment before the first treatment completely wears off is a better value because they may achieve the same results with less product. For instance, a patient who had 2 syringes done in the first treatment, may only need 1 syringe in the follow up. Of course this may vary by individual.

How safe are dermal fillers?
Restylane was approved by the FDA for cosmetic use in 2005. It is composed of non-animal stabilized hyaluronic acid which means there is limited risk of animal-based disease transmission or development of allergic reactions to the proteins.  No allergy testing is required before use.  It is fully biocompatible.  Restylane is used in over 70 countries worldwide.

Are there side effects to Restylane or Perlane?
Some people may experience swelling at the injection site, redness, pain, tenderness or bruising up to about seven days after treatment.  Side effects vary depending on the individual. Some people will have no side effects. Any bruising is usually easily able to be covered by make-up.

How do I prepare for my filler treatment?
It is suggested that you stop the following medications and supplements one week prior to treatment: St. John’s Wart, high doses of Vitamin E, aspirin, or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medicines (ibuprofen) as these may increase bruising or bleeding at the injection site.

Are there people that should not have a dermal filler treatment?
Treatment is not recommended for people who are pregnant, breastfeeding, under 18 years of age, or have a bleeding disorder. If you suffer from cold sores, discuss this with the clinician before treatment.

I’d like to discuss this further before scheduling a treatment …

Evolutions Medical Spa Event Recap: “Brighten Up” with FotoFacials, Laser Facials, Peels and More

Santa Barbara cosmetic surgeon Dr. Terry Perkins – and founder of Evolutions Medical Spa – never ceases to amaze us with the knowledge he holds about the skin and skin care. Last night he shared with a captive audience how to get on the path to clear, bright skin. Here is the recap from the “Brighten Up” educational event at Evolutions.

What stands in the way of luminous skin? For many of us, it is an issue of pigmentation. Pigmentation, also referred to as age spots, “liver” spots, freckles, is caused by melanin.  Melanin is produced as a protection to the skin in response to sun exposure (a sun “tan” is actually a skin injury), trauma, or inflammation. Melanin can also be influenced by hormones, birth control pills, and pregnancy. Appearance problems occur when melanocytes are over stimulated such as post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (from pimples) or melasma, which is a broad patch of pigmentation that can occur in the epidermal or dermal layers of the skin.

How do we get rid of pigmentation? Below are the options that Dr. Perkins outlined for us:

HOME CARE

While Evolutions offers a variety of services that are effective in the treatment of pigmentation problems, Dr. Perkins stressed that it is also important to practice diligent home care to prevent or lighten pigmentation. The #1 recommendation from Dr. Perkins is to wear your sunscreen daily! The fact is that more than half of UV exposure is “incidental” exposure such as sitting near a window, driving in your car, walking outside to chat with your neighbor, you get the picture! UVA actually goes through glass, so you aren’t protected in your car or at your window office.

Evolutions offers a variety of bleaching agents and hydroquinone (which stops the formation of pigment from being formed). Some product recommendations:

  • Obagi Clear and C-Rx Night: a product with hydroquinone as an active ingredient that helps to fade unwanted pigment
  • Revale Illuminating Serum: has the highest potency of antioxidants – good anti-oxidation helps skin repair
  • Nia24: helps skin repair at the DNA level which normalizes pigmentation
  • Retinoids (“Retin A”, “Tretinoin”): help normalize cell differentiation
  • Combination Prescription Products (“Firm and Fade”): offered exclusively at Evolutions that combines Retin-A, hydroquinone, and a low potency steroid (used to calm down inflammation)

In addition to using a brightening/lightening product, you may want to add in a product that encourages cell turnover. Products that contain alpha-hydroxy acids, amino fruit acids, and retinoids are all good choices.

VIBRADERM

Vibraderm is done using abrasive aluminum paddles that provide a gentle abrasion. It is faster than microdermabrasion and does not have a vacuum component (which can cause broken capillaries).  This physical exfoliation is used to treat superficial pigment problems with no downtime. It will improve the penetration of products / peels and is great as a stand alone service or in conjunction with a peel or facial.

LIGHT-BASED TREATMENTS : FOTOFACIAL RF

This “Gold Standard” treatment of pigmentation uses Intense Pulsed Light / Radiofrequency to target pigment and “red” areas. A FotoFacial works deeper than most chemical peels and can significantly improve your skin texture by reducing redness, age spots, sun damage, spider veins, fine lines (although not a treatment for wrinkles) and large pores. We offer the FotoFacial in a series or in combination with other treatments (FotoPeel, FotoPeel Plus, and FotoFacial Genesis Packages), depending on an individual’s needs.

CHEMICAL PEELS

Chemical peels are a “controlled” injury to the skin that causes a deep, even exfoliation. At Evolutions we offer different depths of peels (from light to medium to deep).

  • AFA Peels: the alpha-hydroxy peel is a “light” peel for those who want the benefits of a peels without a large amount of actual peeling. This peel can be done alone or in a series of five (recommended).
  • Alpha Beta Peel: this is the most popular peel at Evolutions. It is a medium-depth physical exfoliation and works well to get rid of superficial sun damage and is a great choice for clients who want to see results in 4-5 days.
  • Obagi Blue Peel: this is the deepest peel offered. It will significantly improve your complexion. You will have firmer, clearer, smoother, healthier skin.

LIGHT-BASED TREATMENTS: Q-SWITCHED LASER

This newest laser is used for our newest service – tattoo removal. It delivers laser energy so rapidly that it breaks up pigment without excessive heating of the surrounding tissue.  Currently we are testing how effectively it can treat stubborn brown pigmentation. Stay tuned at a later date for more information on the Q-Switched Laser!

SUBLATIVE REJUVENATION

This unique fractional resurfacing device uses radiofrequency energy instead of light to safely treat all skin types. Sublative Rejuvenation is used to treat wrinkles, pigment, acne scarring, skin laxity, tone and texture. There is less downtime and discomfort than older fractional laser devises (i.e. the Fraxel) and it can be combined with other light-based treatments (such as the FotoFacial RF or Total Tightening) for customizable treatment options.

CHEMABRASION

This surgical procedure done by Dr. Perkins at Cosmetic Surgery Center in Santa Barbara (near Cottage Hospital) combines a deep peel with dermabrasion (not microdermabrasion). It treats wrinkles, sun damage, and pigment. You will be very impressed with the results. For more information, contact Cosmetic Surgery Center at 805.563.0000.

CONCLUSION

The best way to treat sun damage is to prevent it by using your sunscreen daily (on your face, neck, and decolletage). When pigment issues arise, there are a number of treatment options available at Evolutions and “at home”. Pigmentation can be treated on all areas of the body.

At Evolutions we always offer a complimentary consultation. If you are interested in one of our medical spa services, or simply looking for a new home care routine, call us at 805.687.0212 to make an appointment (or book online).

Medical Spa Event Recap: Radiesse Dermal Filler at Evolutions

Last night’s educational event at Evolutions Medical Spa highlighted the dermal filler Radiesse.  Greg, our representative from Radiesse, did a thorough presentation that explained what Radiesse is, how it is used, and who can use it. He also showed many impressive before-and-after pictures of Radiesse that illustrated what a difference Radiesse can make in someone’s face.

Read on for the complete recap of the Radiesse presentation:

What is Radiesse Wrinkle Filler?

Radiesse is an injectable filler that contains tiny calcium-based microspheres which are made of components similar to those found naturally in your body. Radiesse instantly restores fullness to smooth out signs of aging and has the beneficial side-effect of stimulating our own natural collagen! Results are instantaneous and may last one year or more and is a more affordable wrinkle correction for a broad range of patients.

Radiesse is the only calcium-based filler. Other dermal fillers, such as Restylane and Juvederm, are made with hyaluronic acid and are not known to stimulate collagen.

What is Radiesse used for?

Radiesse has been approved by the FDA to be used to treat:

Why would I need Radiesse?

As we age, our nasolabial lines and marionette lines deepen, and our cheek and eye areas lose volume. Natural collagen begins to breakdown creating loss of elasticity and wrinkles. The lower face begins to take on more of a broad square shape as opposed to the upside down triangular shape of a youthful face. Radiesse wrinkle filler provides volume and lift needed to diminish the signs of aging for visible, long-lasting results.


What is the difference between Radiesse and anti-wrinkle treatments like Botox or Dysport?

Botox and Dysport are muscle relaxers that are typically used in the forehead area. Dermal fillers, such as Radiesse, are typically used in the lower part of the face (from the eyes to chin) to replace volume. We would not want to use Botox or Dysport in the lower part of the face because you wouldn’t want to stop the muscles from working in that area. Instead, a dermal filler would be used to replace the volume lost.


What is a Radiesse treatment like?

Now Radiesse can be mixed with an anesthetic (lidocaine) prior to injection to increase the comfort level. Clinical studies have shown that people felt a 60% reduction in pain level during injection. There is no downtime after a treatment. A person may want to use a cold pack to reduce swelling and the chance of bruising and any exercise after the treatment is not recommended (on the day of the treatment).  The day after treatment you can resume any exercise activity.


Who can use Radiesse?

Radiesse is ideal for a broad range of patients for instant correction of moderate to severe wrinkles. Those who should not use Radiesse wrinkle fillers are people who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or have an active infection in the area to be treated.

If you would like to know how Radiesse, or other dermal fillers, can benefit you, please call Evolutions for a complimentary consultation at 805.687.0212.
