Removing Unwanted Hair!!

Winter is the perfect time to plan for summer, and the perfect time to get rid of unwanted hair. The days of daily shaving and tweezing are over!

Laser Hair Reduction gives you smooth skin, free from razor burn and ingrown hairs.

Laser Hair Reduction may seem relatively new, but the Food and Drug Administration approved it in the 1990s as a safe and effective way to get rid of unwanted hair. Since then Laser Hair Reduction has been widely used by consumers.

Now it’s not only popular with women, more and more men are turning to Laser Hair Reduction for treatments on the face, neck, back and unibrow.

Help for Atumn Dryness

With the approach of fall, you might notice unusual dryness as the seasons change! Two particular areas of concern are the lips and hands.

Jan Marini Skin Research has developed wonderful products that really work for these areas.

For keeping your lips moist and soft, we recommend Jan Marini C-ESTA Lips. "C-ESTA Lips, containing DMAE, is the first medically based product that actually repairs the appearance of aging and sun damage in the lip area. Like other C-ESTA products, the formula is based on two primary modes of action: lipid soluble Vitamin C and DMAE." Jan Marini: C-ESTA Lips

For the hands, Jan Marini Bioglycolic Hand and Body Lotion is fantastic. Containing glycolic acid, it exfoliates and helps hydrate the skin, keeping it soft and supple. "This remarkable body lotion beautifully resurfaces skin texture while revitalizing body skin to reflect the supple, smooth quality of young healthy skin." Jan Marini: Bioglycolic Hand and Body Lotion

Use these two products every night for soft and supple lips and hands all winter long!

How to Minimize or Reverse Summer Sun Damage!

The hot summer sun can cause damage that you might not even be aware of. Fortunately there are some simple things you can do to minimize or even reverse summer skin damage.

First and foremost, use a daytime moisturizer with an spf of 50. Then, be sure to wear a hat; the sun can’t damage skin it can’t reach! Finally, there are some very beneficial treatments you can do during the fall and winter months. IPL or Intense Pulsed Light treatment can rejuvenate sun damaged skin with immediate and effective results. Additionally different compound creams can be prescribed to help fade uneven, sun damaged pigment areas.

So start now, and reverse summer skin damage!

Facials – Your Secret to a Healthy, Fresh Looking Face!

Your secret to a healthy fresh looking face is having regular, professional facials. They are an important component of caring for the health of your face. They increase blood circulation in facial tissues and stimulate the skin surface, both of which promote healthy skin.

Facials help to deeply clean the skin, unclogging pores, and allowing new skin cell growth. This helps to keep skin looking alive, and helps to keep fine lines looking softer.

A professional facial is more than just a treat, it's part of an important skin care regimen. Your skin care specialist scans for, and can identify, areas of concern. Great skin care doesn't just fix existing problems it prevents future ones. Get your professional facial at least once a month, your face is worth it.

Be Skin Healthy!

Super charge your skin care!

It is always important to keep your skin hydrated. Vitamin C-ESTA Serum products do the trick; they brighten and support natural collagen building in the skin.

Next use a hydrating moisturizer containing TGF Beta 1 (Transforming Growth Factor), which is critical for healing as well as stimulating collagen and elastin production. This combination will help keep your skin hydrated and glowing all summer long.

Finally don't forget your sunscreen. Broad spectrum UV protection from the sun's harmful rays is a critical part of any skin care regimen.

At Copa Vida MedSpa we carry a number of skin care product lines to help you achieve the healthy natural look you want.

Eyelash Care!

Just like the hair on top of our heads, it is important to care for the hair on our eyelids, our eyelashes!

Mascara can break lashes, so always be sure to remove all mascara and all makeup every night before going to bed. When curling lashes, be sure to do it before applying mascara, or better yet skip the mascara occasionally.

Condition your eyelashes to keep them healthy year round! Using a product like Aquaphor applied with a q-tip to condition lashes can be very beneficial. Aquaphor can be purchased in most drugs stores.

Finally, if your natural lashes just aren't long enough consider Latisse. Latisse solution is a prescription treatment used to help eyelashes grow longer and fuller.

Call or come in today for a Latisse consult appointment!

Choose organic for a healthy skin diet!

There has been a rise in skin hyperpigmentation (Melasma), and studies have shown that high hormone levels in food could be contributing to this increase in dark skin spots. Choosing an organic, hormone free diet, is good for your body and good for your skin.

If you are concerned about dark or discolored skin spots that you already have, IPL or Intense Pulsed Light treatment can give you effective and immediate results. There is little to no discomfort during these treatments, which can last for years with proper follow-up skin care. Additionally certain compound creams can be prescribed.

To determine what's best for you schedule a consult appointment today!
