Atlanta's Late Night Recovery Kit 🌃 🙈

Okay, Atlanta lets talk about the morning after. The morning when we are in bed possibly throbbing with a headache from our random trip to our local late night hotspots or to the many local breweries we are so lucky to have now. We all know Atlanta folks love to have fun, which sometimes leads us to have later than normal weekend nights out with friends 🙈

Lack of sleep can cause our skin stress and can be intensified when we overindulge in festive activities, more so than normal. Sometimes it can be caused by hitting the bed so hard that we forget to wash our face and sleep in our makeup. All of these weekend activities tend to leave our skin compromised, however, we have compiled a list of skin recovery products that can help you get your skin back to normal come Monday!

Let's begin with our favorite in-clinic or take home quickie. Image Skincare's Biomolecular Anti-Aging Radiance Mask is simply the best! We love to use this on a Sunday to help restore balance and hydrate the skin. This works wonders for seasonal breakouts that are caused by excessive coldness and dry air and is perfect to keep on hand during the winter months. In addition, this sheet mask is perfect for clients that have stressful jobs and are constantly traveling. This mask infuses volcanic water, brightening botanicals, peptides, and antioxidants to reinstate your skin’s most relaxed, plumped-up look. 

For post weekend "face-funk" or that post "grimy face-funk" feeling, AGELESS Total Resurfacing Masque is by far our go-to for texture, smoothening and blemish control. You can really feel this product working as it has a bit of a sting and heat to it. We consider this product an instant chemical peel that includes a blend of glycolic, lactic and salicylic acids, which tackles impurities and excess particulates while vitamin C helps brighten, reduce the appearance of dark spots and strengthen skin. Great for your Sunday skin recovery session ▲

If your skin has become dehydrated and dull from the weekend then a good skin saving serum is the Ormedic Balancing Antioxidant Serum. This serum restores balance to your skin and brings back the equilibrium to your complexion. This serum contains lactic acid to moisturize and refine skin, and with organic Japanese green tea, polyphenols and a copper-complex peptide to reclaim your healthy, dewy glow. This would be a good addition to your Sunday session and can be applied right after the Anti-Aging Sheet Mask or the Ageless Total Resurfacing Masque followed by a hydrating moisturizer 🙌

Finally to address a random pimple or a breakout cluster use Clear Cell Restoring Serum to spot treat or for an all over clean. Restoring Serum is very lightweight and helps to rebalance oily skin without drying it out. This oil-free formula helps restore balance while providing a mattifying effect and minimizes the appearance of pores. Aloe and allantoin help calm skin so any picking or popping that may have taken place will not be agitated even further.

New Year + New Skin ▲ Spark Something Beautiful In 2018

With the new year approaching, new years resolutions are heavy on everyone's mind, however, skin health always seems to be the last on the priority list. Most often we tend to focus on our weight issues, unhealthy eating habits, excessive spending, or how we need to not be too much of a lush while out with friends 😉. But still, our skin always seems to be last on our list.  So how might one want to start caring for our ever so forgotten shell in the new year?

For starters, the best approach would be to connect with your local skin clinic and speak with a skin therapist regarding your skin concerns. They will help to put your current regimen into perspective and help you to determine if your system is working or not. The second step is to understand your skin's need for maintenance. We consider maintenance as monthly skincare treatments that help to keep skin looking youthful and give you that glow, while addressing dermal buildup and your specific skin conditions and concerns. Maintenance along with your home care regimen will ensure optimal skin health. In addition, do realize that your skin goals are attainable. Your skin therapist will help to create a quarterly and yearly plan so you can stay committed to the progress, and just like our eating habits and our fitness habits, it is a commitment.

Peels, Clinical Facials, HydraFacials and Home Care all help to ensure that your skin is glowing and healthy, which will minimize your need for foundations and concealers. This should be the goal, anyway. A common trend in the Instagram world that kind of blows our mind is seeing videos on makeup tutorials with girls that pack on tons of makeup, concealing such inflamed congestion, discolored and problematic skin. If only they focused more on the health of their skin and less about covering it up would they feel more confident about exposing their skin. They would find that the best feeling is to literally wake up without makeup and look damn good doing so. That's the beauty of skin health and it is ever so achievable.

If you have any questions about our maintenance programs and treatments you can contact us at 404-496-4091 or email us at info@theoryaesthetics.com. We also encourage you to book a skin consultation whether over the phone, virtually or in-clinic. We love to talk skin. We also invite you to visit us at www.theoryaesthetics.com. Follow us on our Instagram page and our Facebook page for latest Theory Aesthetics updates, current and new service offerings and promotions. In addition, we would love to share our passion with you and invite you to schedule a procedure with us. All single services are $30 off and All packages are 10% off now until December 30th. We are passionate about skin care treatments.  Our goal is to make Atlanta look healthy with radiant skin.

Treat + Transform ▲ Looking For A New Foundation? I CONCEAL Has You Covered

ImageFoundationColours.jpg

Have you ever felt like your foundation is just too cakey? Or you are constantly breaking out? Image Skincare offers foundations that are lightweight and actually treat the skin while offering coverage. The I CONCEAL line can easily be blended into your daily moisturizer as well as your SPF to create a customizable tinted moisturizer. The foundation has broad-spectrum sun protection and is pigmented with minerals but doesn't give you that ashy finish. The ashy finish is usually a common problem with skin types 4-6 especially when an SPF is added. 

I CONCEAL coverage is manageable and customizable to suit both full coverage lovers as well as light coverage lovers with the aid of your moisturizer or SPF. The treatment aspect of this product allows for your skin to maintain its balance while retaining moisture. In addition, for oily skin types, this foundation will aid in sebum control and includes plant stem cells and antioxidants which help protect against various aging concerns.  

Physician formulated for:

All skin types
Pigmentation
Redness-prone skin
Acne-prone skin and acne scarring
Post cosmetic injections, laser treatments or surgery
Bruising or scarring

Our clinic is not cosmetics focused and we don't plan to offer makeup in the future, however since this is a treatment and given that SPF should be a mandatory product that everyone should wear, we thought I CONCEAL was perfect to offer our clients. If you are ever in our clinic please ask for a sample or you can contact us at 404-496-4091 or email us at info@theoryaesthetics.com. We also encourage you to book a skin consultation whether over the phone, virtually or in-clinic. We love to talk skin.

Vitamin C, Peptides + Growth Factors - The Trifecta ▲ Put Some Pep In Your Skincare Game 💋 Part 2.

Peptides are tiny molecules in your body that biologically send messages and signals for it to carry out a specific function. When we focus on our skin's response to a peptide then we can think of them as, in essence, our tiny army of anti-aging messengers. Since peptides are naturally produced and functions can vary based on the specific amino acid bond or pattern, skin science has come a long way in targeting specific responses that can be elicited by using these peptides in our products.

With peptides, we can elicit many responses that can treat a variety of skin conditions and concerns. Whether your skin is in the process of losing collagen, peptides are there to alert the skin to work at replacing the lost collagen. If your skin isn't in the natural process of losing collagen, then peptide enhanced skincare can actually help to trick the skin to produce more. Thus keeping you youthful.

Image Skincare is one line that offers peptide enhanced products in all of their collections. We were able to count roughly 18+ products that included peptides and they were specifically crafted for a specific condition and concern which coincided with the line. For example, the Iluma collection which is geared for hyperpigmentation has The Iluma Intense Brightening Eye Crème which includes a complex peptide that specifically targets these issues and "serves to increase the production of collagen in the skin, maximize the elasticity of the skin, and minimize wrinkles and fine lines. A trademarked complex diminishes puffiness underneath the eyes, and it combats inflammation. Some of the ingredients reduce the dark circles that form under the eyes, and other ingredients protect the skin at a cellular level."

So to sum it all up, your skincare selection should be specific to your skin condition and concerns as science has afforded us the ability to target issues using peptides. These issues can range from collagen and elastin regeneration, increased production of hyaluronic acid, wrinkle reduction and depth, pigmentation issues and dark circles as well as to even replicate the effects of Botox to help with facial wrinkles.

By targeting your own personal skin conditions and skin concerns you can figure out what peptide enhanced skin care products to purchase. Since peptides are very tiny and can penetrate into the epidermis quickly you will most likely see peptides in serums, eye creams, daily moisturizers as well as nightly repair crèmes such as the Ormedic Balancing Bio-Peptide Crème. 

If you have any questions about Peptide enhanced products you can contact us at 404-496-4091 or email us at info@theoryaesthetics.com. We also encourage you to book a skin consultation whether over the phone, virtually or in-clinic. We love to talk skin.
