  • How To Improve Your Skin Health

    Table of Contents What Does Healthy Face Skin Look Like? Smooth texture Consistent color Moist, hydrated skin Why is My Face Skin Unhealthy? How Can I Improve My Skin Health? Which Vitamins are Best for Skin? How Can I Improve My Skin in Seven Days? What are Healthy Skin Care Products? It is not uncommon to hear people talk about healthy skin. Be it having healthy skin or the search for healthy skin, ways to improve skin quality, texture, and appearance continue to evolve. With so many ways to address skin health and skin concerns, how do you know which is best for you? How does one know what works and what may not? First, it helps to know what healthy skin looks like before learning more about the ways to improve skin quality. What Does Healthy Face Skin Look Like? It is essential to mention that skin health is more than what you can see on the surface. So, just because a potential problem is not clearly visible when you look in the mirror doesn't mean it is not there. As a result, your overall skin health may not be as good as you believe it to be. It may surprise you that your skin is your largest body organ and the one that visibly portrays (on the outside) your overall well-being. You may be wondering what the key elements of healthy face skin are. Below are a few indications: Smooth texture The texture of healthy skin should be primarily smooth and free of bumps. If you notice a lot of whiteheads, blackheads, or pimples, it is an indication of skin congestion. If your skin appears "dull," it may suggest poor diet and lack of sleep. Consistent color If your skin is primarily uniform in color, it suggests good face skin health. However, if you notice blotchiness, dark spots, red spots, or other places where the color is "off," it may suggest a skin health problem. Examples include hyperpigmentation, sun spots, or an allergic reaction. Moist, hydrated skin Dry skin, flaky patches, or tight feeling facial skin are possible signs of dehydration. They may also be connected to your skincare products such as creams, cleansers, and makeup. Why is My Face Skin Unhealthy? There are many potential sources of unhealthy face skin. In the paragraphs above, we mentioned issues such as dehydration, poor diet, lack of sleep, allergic reactions, and sun damage. In addition, unhealthy skin can occur from not using the proper skincare routine for your needs, not cleansing your skin daily, spending time in the sun without SPF protection, and smoking. Any of these habits (and more) can lead to unhealthy face skin. Fortunately, there are many things you can do to improve your skin health. How Can I Improve My Skin Health? Your skin protects your body from bacteria and many other potential hazards. Therefore, it is important to do what you can to keep your skin healthy. In addition to maintaining a healthy diet and staying hydrated, here are a few more face skin health tips. Avoid sunlamps, tanning beds, and other sources of UV radiation, as these can lead to new or worsening facial wrinkles and sunspots. Clean your skin with warm (not hot) water to avoid damaging the outer layers (epidermis) of your skin. Also, use mild cleansers that do not contribute to dryness and irritation. Avoid dry, flaky skin by ensuring you remain well hydrated. Reduce the potential for sunburn, sun damage, sunspots, and premature wrinkles caused by sun exposure by applying sunscreen daily. Food and skin health are indeed connected, so be sure to eat a diet rich in skin healing vitamins and minerals. Which Vitamins are Best for Skin? Taking good care of your skin is essential to your overall health. Making sure your diet contains the right vitamins can help reduce redness, dryness, flaky patches, dark spots, and wrinkles. Many vitamins are found in the foods we eat and in supplements and some skincare products. The Important vitamins to look for are: Vitamin D-Vitamin D helps produce healthy cells (including skin cells) in the body. It also helps improve skin tone and may improve psoriasis symptoms. Vitamin C-Vitamin C is found in the epidermis and the dermis. Vitamin C has vital cancer-fighting (antioxidant) properties and plays a critical role in collagen production, helping to reduce the signs of aging. Vitamin E-Vitamin E is also an antioxidant. It plays a vital role in protecting your skin against sun damage by absorbing harmful UV rays (when applied to the skin in cream form). Healthy amounts of vitamin E can also counteract dryness and reduce skin inflammation. Vitamin K-Vitamin K helps with blood clotting, which speeds wound healing. Vitamin K may also help with certain skin conditions, including dark spots, under-eye circles, scars, stretch marks, and spider veins. How Can I Improve My Skin in Seven Days? With a few simple steps, it is possible to improve the health and appearance of your skin in just seven short days. Here’s how! Day 1: Begin with developing good skin health habits. Start by cleansing, toning, and moisturizing in the morning and before bed. Day 2: Focus on skin-healthy foods. Internal health, including diet and hydration, is essential to skin health. Also, remember to maintain your day one routine. Day 3: In addition to diet, hydration, and your cleansing routine from day one, follow your cleanser with an exfoliator. Don't do this every day, though. A couple of days a week is fine for starters. Day 4: On day four, incorporate a mask into your routine. Day 5: By now, you should begin to notice the appearance of healthier, brighter skin. Remember that it is essential to get at least six to eight hours of sleep each night. Day 6: Today, try another mask. If you used a "wash off" mask on day four, consider a different type of mask, such as a peel-off mask today. This type of mask will pull the dirt and debris from your pores, revealing smoother, brighter skin. Day 7: By now, your skin should be looking much healthier and be glowing. Now it’s time to wash, rinse and repeat each week to maintain your beautiful, healthy face skin. What are Healthy Skin Care Products? By now, we have hopefully helped to answer a few of your questions about how you can get healthy face skin and how to fix your skin quality. In the above paragraphs, we frequently mention skincare products that can help you achieve your best skin health. With literally thousands of products available, it can quickly become challenging to know what you need and what may not. It is essential to have a skincare routine that includes three basic elements; a cleanser, moisturizer, and sunscreen. Also, look for products that contain the vitamins mentioned above, as they can help reduce the harmful impacts of oxidative stress and free radicals on the health of your skin. Many products are available to meet your skincare needs. Still, it is important to talk to a skincare professional at Clique Salon and Spa to determine which types of products may be the most beneficial for your skin. We all have different needs for the health of our face skin. Choosing the wrong (or an ineffective) product might cause further skin health concerns.

  • Microneedling and Skin Tightening

    Table of Contents What is Microneedling? Can Microneedling Tighten Skin? How Long Does it Take to See Tighter Skin? How Often Can I Get Microneedling Treatments for Skin Tightening? How Long do Microneedling Results Last? Can Microneedling Tighten Belly Skin? What is the Best Treatment for Skin Tightening? Can I Combine Other Treatments with Micro-Needling? Fine lines, wrinkles, stretch marks, loose and saggy skin, and acne scarring are all skin problems people look to resolve. There are many ways to address these issues. However, some are notably more effective than others. The best (non-surgical) procedure to reduce loose and sagging skin on most body areas is Microneedling. This safe, minimally invasive procedure, also called collagen induction therapy, is not a new procedure. Although the process and the tools used during a Microneedling procedure have changed over time, the process itself has been used by skincare professionals like our team at Clique Salon and Med Spa for more than twenty years. What is Microneedling? Microneedling is a treatment used to reduce the appearance of several unwanted skin conditions. Microneedling treatments are a highly effective way to vastly improve the appearance of acne scarring, stretch marks, pores, and wrinkles. Microneedling also helps improve skin elasticity, texture and reduces the visibility of sunspots and hyperpigmentation. Microneedling can also help reduce sagging skin. The process helps encourage your body to produce more collagen naturally by causing minor injury to the skin's surface. Once the procedure is complete, your body responds to the wounds created by the tool by making new, healthy, collagen-rich tissues. Because Microneedling is a very versatile procedure that can help improve many skin concerns, it helps to understand more about how the procedure achieves desired effects. Can Microneedling Tighten Skin? People experience loose or sagging skin for several reasons. For some, it occurs after dramatic weight loss or after pregnancy. Others may notice looser skin as part of the natural aging process as collagen levels in the body decline. Collagen is a vital component of youthful, healthy-looking skin. Microneedling can help tighten loose skin because it encourages your body to start producing more collagen to replace what is damaged or lost. As previously noted, increased collagen production improves and rejuvenates your skin. This results in an overall improvement in skin tightness and texture. It also reduces the presence of sagging and wrinkled skin by filling in the areas around wrinkles and dimples to improve appearance. How Long Does it Take to See Tighter Skin? It is important to remember that just like the time it takes for sagging or loose skin to develop, it also takes time to improve. The number of Microneedling treatments you may need to see tighter, firmer skin varies depending on a few factors unique to your skin. The first factor is the results you hope to achieve using Microneedling for skin tightening. The second factor is the location and size of the treatment area. People who choose Microneedling for skin concerns other than loose or sagging skin may notice results within a few sessions. Examples of these treatment types may include crow’s feet, deep forehead wrinkles, and fine lines around the face. When using Microneedling to address sagging or loose skin and stretch marks, some patients may need between five and ten sessions to achieve their desired skin-tightening results. How Often Can I Get Microneedling Treatments for Skin Tightening? There are many skin benefits you can achieve with Microneedling treatments. However, providing your skin with the time it requires to heal between sessions is essential. Microneedling improves excess skin laxity and increases collagen and elastin production by "damaging" the skin. The healing process is what causes increased collagen and elastin production. For this reason, it is important to schedule Microneedling sessions between four and six weeks apart to ensure adequate healing time. How Long do Microneedling Results Last? Microneedling results will last between three and five months. Again, there are factors unique to your skin that play a role in how long your results last. These include how long collagen remains viable in your skin and how severe your skin concerns are. If you need to produce a lot of collagen to achieve your skincare goals, you may notice your initial results fade after a few months. However, if your concerns are minor, longer-lasting results are generally seen. Can Microneedling Tighten Belly Skin? Loose or sagging skin around your belly may happen after weight loss or pregnancy. Loose belly skin is not unique to women, as men struggle with frustrating “extra” skin around their belt line as well. Microneedling (collagen-induction therapy) with SkinPen can help you get rid of sagging skin around your belly, no matter the reason for it. What is the Best Treatment for Skin Tightening? There are several non-invasive and minimally invasive ways to firm sagging skin. The first options are skin-firming lotions and creams. Many of these products are readily available in your local store's skincare or pharmacy section. Although easily accessible, most are unlikely to provide dramatic results. To date, the American Academy of Dermatology does not indicate any lotions or creams on the market that are capable of delivering lifting or firming results. After creams are non-invasive skin tightening procedures such as ultrasound skin tightening, radiofrequency, and laser treatments. These procedures, including popular fat reduction treatments like truSculptID, Ultherapy, and Thermage, use micro-focused ultrasound energy or radiofrequency (RF) therapy to reduce body fat cells and sagging skin. Many of these treatments are effective and considered safe for most people. Another benefit is that they work well on most body areas and are short and painless procedures. Each requires several treatment sessions before achieving optimal results. They also require regular maintenance sessions to maintain lasting effects. Finally (at least without surgical intervention), there are minimally invasive skin tightening procedures. These procedures, including Microneedling, laser resurfacing, and radiofrequency, offer the most noticeable results without an invasive procedure. Microneedling produces nearly immediate results from your session, making it the best treatment for skin tightening. With each session taking only 10 to 20 minutes, Microneedling is a quick, effective way to reduce sagging skin or address other areas of skin concern. Can I Combine Other Treatments with Micro-Needling? A common question is, "can I combine other procedures with a Microneedling session?" The answer is yes. Combining treatments with your Microneedling appointment ensures you can get the most from each session here at Clique Salon and Spa. We offer several treatments that blend well with Microneedling to help you achieve your best skin. Examples include laser hair removal procedures, facials, laser skin treatments, dermal fillers, and injectables such as Botox. There are many potential benefits to Microneedling, including a safe, effective, and long-lasting way to tighten saggy or loose skin. Microneedling is safe for all skin types and skin tones. Virtually anyone who has a concern such as stretch marks, wrinkles, or sagging skin is an ideal candidate for Microneedling at Clique Salon and Spa. Microneedling can help with almost any problem (almost) anywhere on your body.

  • Dysport vs. Botox vs. Xeomin: Which One to Use and When

    Table of Contents Dysport, Botox, Xeomin: Side-by-Side Comparison Side Effects of Dysport, Botox, and Xeomin Units Required: Dysport, Xeomin Botox How many units of Dysport are needed? How many units of Xeomin are needed? How many units of Botox are needed? How Long Do Dysport, Xeomin, and Botox Last? How much is Dysport per unit? How much is Xeomin per unit? How much is Botox per unit? Which is better: Botox, Xeomin, or Dysport? As injectables continue to grow in popularity and effectiveness, it seems as though there are more options to choose from today than ever before. At one time, Botox was the primary and most effective injectable facial treatment. In recent years, that has changed. Today, Botox, Xeomin, and Dysport top the list of popular treatments. Each is effective and provides excellent treatment results. So, which one should you use to meet your goals? Dysport, Botox, Xeomin: Side-by-Side Comparison All three are injectable options made from the botulinum toxin used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on the face. All are quick, non-invasive treatments that produce excellent results when treatments are done by a qualified professional. Dysport, Botox, and Xeomin are neuromodulators. A neuromodulator is a type of protein that blocks communication between nerve cells and the muscle they control. Because Dysport, Xeomin, and Botox are derived from the botulinum toxin (a neuromodulator protein), they all work by blocking communication to the muscles in the treated area. This allows the muscle to relax and improves the appearance of the skin. The primary difference between the three treatments is how long it takes for the results to take effect and how many "units" of injectable are needed to achieve desired results. For most people, Dysport requires more units than Botox or Xeomin, but results appear faster and cost less per unit overall. Conversely, results are slower to appear with Botox and Xeomin, but the total cost of treatments for Botox and Xeomin is less because fewer units are necessary. The effects of all three treatments last for the same amount of time, so maintenance treatments follow the same general schedule regardless of the type of injectable. Side Effects of Dysport, Botox, and Xeomin All three products are FDA-approved and considered safe in most cases. Because all three have the same active ingredient, the side effects are the same across the board. The side effects of Dysport, Botox, and Xeomin include headache, dry eyes, blurry vision, injection site pain, irritation, and bruising. Some people may experience effects unique to the person and the use of an injectable in general. Units Required: Dysport, Xeomin Botox As mentioned above, the units required for each injectable varies based on the product and the size of the treatment area; however, there are a few basic guidelines for each product. How many units of Dysport are needed? Approximately 60 units are needed for frown lines (the "eleven" lines between your eyebrows). The horizontal lines on the forehead typically require 30-60 units, and "crow's feet" (the line and wrinkles around the eyes need 30-50 units (per eye) of Dysport. How many units of Xeomin are needed? Overall, Xeomin requires fewer units to treat lines and wrinkles on the face. Crow's feet need between 5 and 20 units, frown lines need between 15 and 30 units, and horizontal forehead lines need between 20 and 40 units. How many units of Botox are needed? The number of Botox units needed closely follows that of Xeomin. For horizontal forehead lines, between 10 and 15 units are required. Crow's feet require 10-15 units per eye, and frown lines require between 20 and 30 units. How Long Do Dysport, Xeomin, and Botox Last? The onset of results for Xeomin, Botox, and Dysport differ. Most people see the initial effects of Dysport treatments within 24 hours. Botox can take closer to 72 hours, and Xeomin up to four days to see the initial results of your treatment. The full results from all three can take up to two weeks. All three options last for three to six months before maintenance injections are needed to maintain treatment effects. The exact duration will vary from person to person, the size of the treatment area, and how much was injected into the treatment area. Cost of Dysport, Xeomin, and Botox The cost of injectable treatments varies depending on several factors, including your provider, the size of the treatment area, and the number of units needed to achieve desired results. However, as with the number of required units, there are general guidelines for the cost per unit of each treatment. How much is Dysport per unit? Dysport injections typically cost between $4 and $6 per unit. It is important to remember that while less expensive per unit, more units of Dysport are required to achieve desired results. So, in the end, Dysport may cost more depending on your treatment needs. How much is Xeomin per unit? Xeomin injections generally cost between $10 and $15 per unit. How much is Botox per unit? The cost of Botox injections is usually comparable to that of Xeomin injections at $10 to $15 per unit. Which is better: Botox, Xeomin, or Dysport? Although Botox continues to be a well-known and popular injectable treatment, all three options offer the same benefits and produce excellent results. In the end, the question of "which is better" often comes down to personal choice. When choosing between the three treatments, it is important to talk to a member of our team at Clique Salon and Med Spa about the pros and cons of each treatment option. We can help you learn more about which filler will help you achieve your specific goals. To learn more about all three treatment options, contact us today to schedule a consultation.

  • Xeomin Injections Lakeland | Improve Severe Frown Lines | Clique Med Spa

    We offer premium injectable treatments XEOMIN LAKELAND BOOK NOW How Long Does Xeomin Take to Work? Results of a Xeomin procedure are sometimes noticeable immediately after completion of your procedure or after any minor swelling has reduced. However, most people see an improvement that continues to appear over the course of one to two weeks, with full results within five to 10 days. When compared to other injectable treatments such as different types of dermal injections or high-tech anti-aging procedures, patients report Xeomin works quicker. Many other similar treatments take two weeks or more for full results to appear. It is important to remember that the speed at which you see results from your treatment will depend on a few factors unique to you, such as your age, the severity of the condition you wish to address, and others. BOOK NOW How Long Do Xeomin Injections Last? Xeomin treatment sessions are quick and non-invasive. For most, a Xeomin treatment session requires between 15 to 30 minutes. The duration of Xeomin effects is typically between three and six months, although the average time some patients report is closer to two to four months, slightly less than similar treatments such as Botox. Depending on your skincare needs and ongoing appearance goals, you will want to schedule a second appointment for touch-ups. Individual factors such as lifestyle and your skin health also contribute to the overall longevity of Xeomin injections. For this reason, some patients may require more frequent injections than others. Is Xeomin Cheaper Than Botox? Compared to Botox, which has been on the market since 1989, Xeomin is relatively new to the skincare industry and, therefore, more price competitive. Xeomin received Food and Drug Administration approval in the United States in 2011 but has been in use in Europe since 2008. Xeomin has no additives, which may reduce the chances of developing antibodies or a reaction to the product. Although Botox and Xeomin are very similar in their benefits, you will find Xeomin is priced better than Botox. At Clique Med Spa, 30 units of Botox is $12/unit, and an equal number of units of Xeomin is $10.50/unit. Therefore, a treatment that would cost $360 with Botox is only $315 with Xeomin.
