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 🙈

JanBlog_4.jpg

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.

If you have questions about these late night recovery products or are curious about the lines we carry 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.

A Minimalist Approach To Skin Health ▲

youthserumcomplex.jpg

How many products will it take before your skincare routine starts to become too time-consuming? 8, 12, 14? With time being a constant constraint and skincare products saturating the isles of your local department store, it can feel overwhelming to pick the best home care. At Theory Aesthetics, we want to keep your guesswork to a minimum. This is why we select pharmaceutical grade products that are good for your skin. The system has already been set in place (pre-established), and the results are clinically tested for effectiveness.

If you are struggling with choosing the best skincare, a good approach would be to consult with a skin therapist. Most skin clinics will carry quality skincare lines and only offer a few options that they feel would be best for their clients. Department stores, on the other hand, tend to have more trendy cosmetic grade offerings. To be a bit more specific, being trendy certainly does not equal (equate) being effective. Also most often the price points in comparison to the ingredients in the product are higher. Unfortunately, consumers are just not exposed to skin clinics/med spas so most people will rarely understand the difference.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) classifies skincare products into two categories: cosmetic and pharmaceutical. Pharmaceutical grade skincare products just as cosmetic-grade skincare are both used topically however, Pharmaceutical grade skincare are actually able to penetrate into the epidermis and into the deeper layers of the skin. Pharmaceutical grade skincare and its ingredients are able to affect change in the skin and go through a lengthy and expensive process just to be approved to sell to the public. Keep in mind that Pharmaceutical grade products can only be bought through a licensed professional as these products contain a higher percentage of active ingredients and are of higher quality. So you will need a professional to determine which products will be best for your skin type, condition, and concern. So if you are ready for a minimalist approach to skin health you may want to visit a local clinic for your skincare needs. Here are a few tips that can help you in your selection process.

1. Cleansers are a must, as they cleanse the skin of impurities along with the day's makeup. A great approach to buying a cleanser is having one be multifunctioning. Most cleansers should be balancing and able to thoroughly cleanse without stripping the skin of essential oils. A great option is iS Clinical Cleansing Complex as it is actually a 3-in-1. Cleansing Complex cleanses, removes makeup, as well as keeping the skin's PH levels balanced and is excellent for all skin types, ages, and skin conditions.

2. Say goodbye to your daily moisturizer and replace it with an Active Serum and an SPF. Combine these two products together to create your customized "active" daily moisturizer and UV protection will help to simplify your process. Utilizing a Serum for free radical protection and your SPF for UV protection to create your custom daily moisturizer with SPF. Serums penetrate into the skin and give more daily protection. iS Clinical has a great line of Active Serums and we love their Extreme Protect SPF 30. This combination is a new trend in the skincare industry.

3. For those of you who cannot do away with a daily moisturizer, another cost and time savings approach is to buy a night creme that you can wear during the day as well. This is especially a great option for dry/dehydrated skin types as night cremes are more heavy vs. lightweight day cremes.

4. Also if you still are unable to fully commit to the products that your skin therapist has suggested for you, buying a trial kit in order to determine which products you like the most in a specific line is a great plan of action. Trial kits allow you to sample the core products and see if you want to buy the full-size products. Also if you tend to have a combination of skin conditions you can buy two kits that are skin condition specific and test the products out that way. We like this approach as you are able to tailor your home care while having access to the product lines your skin requires the most. 

With skincare, it is important to understand that in order to see the full benefit you must use the product for a full month to six weeks. This is due to the skin's natural turnover rate. A full skin turnover cycle is recommended unless the product is causing you serious irritation then it is important to discontinue use and contact your skin therapist. They will be happy to help you determine the cause of the reaction and help you find another suitable product.

If you have questions about our skincare approach or are curious about our lines that we carry 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.

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. 

Screen-Shot-2017-03-07-at-9.32.01-AM.png

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%20SkinCare.jpg

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.

One of our favorite lines launched their new serum this year, GENEXC and we are absolutely in love with it and the science 😍

For more details, you can visit our website's Concerns + Specialty for more information on the Fire + Ice Treatment and our Online Store for some core iS CLINICAL products with full description. 

Now for the fun sciency stuff we all skincare junkies love so much 🤓 However to keep the integrity of the products description intact we will let iS CLINICAL's words speak for themselves - as to not completely butcher it!

"GENEXC SERUM is our new revolutionary formula featuring iS CLINICAL proprietary combination of Extremozymes® which are clinically proven to help protect, revitalize, and enhance the foundation of healthy skin, while supporting multi-level protection and long-term visual improvements.

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.
