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.

Coffee Is Not The Only Thing To Perk You Up 😍💋

Have you ever woken up in the morning to realize that you have run out of coffee? In a ravenous spree you open all cabinet doors and make a complete mess of the pantry. Yes it has happened. No shame in your coffee game. Well the Perk™ treatment is just as addictive. Perk™ from The HydraFacial Company allows you to exfoliate the delicate areas that are our eyes and lips in clinic then on-the-go. You will feel refreshed and hydrated long after you have left the clinic.

So what makes Perk so unique? Perk uses patented roller-flex technology to loosen dirt, oil and dead skin cells through gentle exfoliation while flushing and suctioning away impurities. At the same time, pores are gently flexed to replenish skin with vital antioxidants and nutrients. Each Perk purchase comes with two tips one for exfoliation and one for nutrient application. In addition, each Perk treatment container will have a little added skincare essential. EYE will include eye masks and the LIP includes lip balm, which makes this treatment and take home care that more awesome!

Perk treatments are great for travelers as we all know how drained and moisture depleted our skin can get after a long flight. Perk helps you to reach areas inside the orbital rim and target those pores by infusing serums that can literally be applied right up to the lash line. Similarly Perk helps to nourish the lips as well as exfoliate them. If you are a fan of lip liners and long wear lip colors you must know and have experienced clogged pores along the lip line. This is due to the buildup from the lip products and lack of targeted treatments for the lips specifically. Perk is that treatment.  

We are offering Perk to all clients as a single stand alone treatment as well as an add-on service to select treatments. We have also included this treat into our Loyalty + Rewards program on select packages for our loyal clients. You will love this added bonus every month. In addition, you will get to choose your focus. Depending on your need that month you could either pick Eye, Lip or both. It's your Perk 😊

What we love about Perk Services:

  • 5 vacuum level settings for your comfort level.
  • 2 types of exfoliation tips: Clear tip for cleansing & blue tip for nutrient application.
  • Waste container displays skin’s impurities after treatment.
  • Treatment vial turns into take-home product for home-use applications.
  • Great for travelers.

If you have any questions about Perk treatments or our Loyalty + Rewards Program 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 ▲ Growth Factors | Human vs. Plant Part 3.

The human skin consists of cells known as fibroblasts. These fibroblasts are what produces the growth factors that are a popular component of our skincare products. These Growth Factors are what helps to renew the skin naturally, aiding in proliferation, healing and cellular growth. All cells will create a Growth Factor but since we are speaking of our skin we will focus on fibroblasts specifically.

Fibroblasts have the ability to produce collagen and hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is important for our skin to retain moisture in order for the skin cell to metabolize. Collagen builds the strength of the skin, giving it structure and reducing the appearance of aging and wrinkles. Within the nucleus of the fibroblast contains the DNA, which holds the skins specific functions and specific processes. You could think of DNA as our computer that houses our skins codes.
Our DNA needs to be activated by messengers from the outside of the cell. When the cell and DNA are penetrated it will create specific chemical reactions resulting in the activation of the specific DNA Gene.

Growth Factors are proteins and are one of the most powerful activators of DNA. Peptides are second on the list, which we discussed in the previous blog series Vitamin C, Peptides + Growth Factors - The Trifecta ▲ Put Some Pep In Your Skincare Game 💋 Part 2. So how is Growth Factors added to our skincare, you ask? Well, it is stem cells that make growth factors. So when stem cells are mixed into our skincare products by using a medium you have your growth factor product.

Image_Skincare_Products.jpg

There are different types of stem cells used in skincare, which include human and plant. Typically with products that use plant stem cells, these will be very high in antioxidant power. For example, Image Skincare has a variety of plant and fruit stem cells in most of their products. With human stem cells, the growth factors will send signals to the DNA to work and help heal our aging skin. For example The HydraFacial Company's CTGF™ Solution is a Vortex-Booster™ treatment that minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It has naturally derived human growth factors. Growth Factors again are natural proteins responsible for the skins healing process. Growth Factors help to minimize the appearance of fine lines, strengthen skin, and keep skin nourished. In general both human and plant forms are great to have in your skincare regimen. However for some clients who would find the human version less appealing, may need to ask for further clarification from their skin therapist as products or treatment descriptions will not be so detailed.      

So to clarify this a bit more, stem cells maintain and repair the tissue and create new cells in the skin. A stem cell can be derived from humans or plants, however, plant stem cells are for antioxidant protection and the extension of cell life as they are very rich in antioxidant power. Human stem cells are what essentially produces the actual growth factors and so fibroblast-derived is the best growth factors for skincare if you are looking to activate your DNA genes and produce change on the cellular level.

If you have questions regarding Growth Factors or Stem Cells in our skincare lines and treatments you can contact us at 404-496-4091, email us at info@theoryaesthetics.com or you can pm us on our facebook page. We encourage you to book a skin consultation whether over the phone, virtually or in-clinic. We love to talk skin.

Have You Had A HydraFacial Yet? If Not Then You've Been Missing Out On Life. HydraFacial MD 💧 Detoxify | Rejuvenate | Protect

fc90f586-23b5-4f9f-9a26-82c5a43763c4.jpg

We are excited to offer HydraFacial MD to our clients. If you have never had a HydraFacial you are literally missing out on life, seriously. These unique skin treatments will literally rock your face off and all of its impurities along the way 😉 

So what exactly is a HydraFacial Treatment? These specialized treatments are a unique combination of cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, hydration and antioxidant protection. The treatments are most pleasurable and leaves your skin feeling alive and refreshed and can be done monthly. HydraFacial MD technology is a more superior skin resurfacing procedure compared to the traditional microdermabrasions, which we feel are very dated and not so enjoyable for the client.

If you ask anyone who has had a microdermabrasion, they will tell you themselves that that procedure is least on their spa favorites. Traditional treatments used crystals and suction to exfoliate the epidermis. If you are wondering how the HydraFacial MD works watch the video below:  

If you have any questions about HydraFacial MD skin 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.

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.
