Acne Programs Clearlight – Acne Light TherapyThe clear light acne photo clearing apc therapy gives clients a new option in treating moderate inflammatory acne without side effects, discomfort, photosensitivity or downtime. ClearLight uses the innovative acne photo clearing apc technology to destroy the most common bacteria that causes acne- quickly & easily. ClearLight is one of the safest acne treatments available. Its apc technology uses light that is uv-safe. The clear light uses a high intensity narrow band of light source of 405-420 nanometers, which will trigger the production of endogenic porphyrins. These porphyrins attack & destroy the acne causing bacteria within the skin. Clear light treatment can take place even if your physician is treating you w/ antibiotics or accutane. Two fifteen-minute treatments a week for four weeks has proven to clear acne up to 80 percent.

Botox CosmeticsBotox cosmetics causes muscles to relax, thus lessening facial wrinkles including crow’s feet, forehead, scowl lines & more. Botox cosmetics (botulinum toxin type A) was approved by the FDA in 1989 for treatment of lazy eye, uncontrolled muscle spasms around the eye & facial nerve disorders. As research continued, cosmetic uses for botox were developed. Facial muscles attach directly from bone to skin. As a result, every time you make an expression, the skin creases. After years, wrinkles are formed. Botox cosmetics relaxes the muscles temporarily (usually for two to four months), enabling the skin to become smoother. The surgeon administers the Botox Injections w/ a few quick injections taking only seconds, & the final results are seen within 48-72 hours.
Chemical PeelsLight to medium chemical peels for face & body are custom-designed to counteract signs of aging, hyper pigmentation, scarring, trauma scarring, melasma (discoloration from birth control pills or pregnancy) & pre-cancerous skin conditions. Peels involve application of a chemical solution to sun-damaged, unevenly pigmented & finely wrinkled facial areas. By peeling away the skin’s top layers, imperfections are diminished, & new skin is rejuvenated, giving the skin an improved texture & appearance. The strength of the chemicals & the length of time the solutions are left on the skin vary. Generally, the most superficial peels use alphahydroxy acids (AHA) such as glycolic or salicylic acid. Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) peels are stronger, & yield greater depth of the peel. All chemical peels may result in some minor to moderate recovery. During your complimentary skin assessment, your practitioner will discuss the most appropriate peel based on your skin type & goals.
MicrodermabrasionMicro derm abrasion is a particle skin resurfacing used to correct hyper pigmentation (discolored skin), hyper keratosis (hyperpigmentations that are small raised red or brown bumps), melasma (discoloration from birth control pills or pregnancy), & milia or comedones (whiteheads or blackheads). A key benefit to micro derm abrasion is that there is no downtime, & the client can return to normal activities immediately. At A New You, our medical micro derm abrasion is uniquely designed by our experts to provide quick results for clogged pores, fine lines & sun damage. After a careful cleansing & prepping of the face & neck, a wand emits a fine stream of crystals onto the face & neck & is gently suctioned away. Then a second cleansing to cool the skin followed by anti-oxidant therapy & lymphatic massage to sooth & nourish the skin. Extractions are performed as needed followed by a custom facial masque, eye & lip treatment & a de-stressing neck & shoulder massage. The results of this treatment are impressive! Immediate improvement is visible on most skin conditions & our Medical Microdermabrasion Facial may be used in a series, as a maintenance program or as an adjunct to a customized anti-aging treatment plan.
PhotorejuvenationIntense pulsed light photorejuvenation is an exciting new fda-approved technology that can correct a variety of skin conditions & facial imperfections, such as age spots, birthmarks, fine lines & other blemishes. The IPL is a broad-spectrum light that lightens, brightens & smoothes the skin. The light targets red & brown pigments, allowing cell renewal & “lifting off” the pigmented cells through accelerated dermal turnover.
Laser Hair Removal
Light SheerWhen dark, coarse hair appears in places that may make you uncomfortable—on the face, neck, abdomen, breasts, legs or underarms—it may be time to consider hair removal w/ the light sheer diode laser. The light sheer diode laser system is a state of the art system specially designed to remove unwanted hair. Light sheer produces a beam of highly concentrated light, which is absorbed by the pigment located in the hair follicle. Highly controlled flashes of light are selectively absorbed by hair-filled follicles lying below the skin’s surface. The absorbed light heats the hair, which damages or destroys the regrowth potential of the follicle. The system’s design provides client comfort during treatment, minimal risk of infection, speed & accuracy.
Permanent CosmeticsAlso known as micro-pigmentation, permanent cosmetics involve a process where art & science are brought together by a delicate, sophisticated technique. Color pigments are expertly placed within the dermis (second layer) of the skin. This process is used for cosmetic & corrective purposes & creates a lasting effect to accentuate & improve the definition of eyes, eyebrows & lips. Skin colors are formulated on an individual basis. The actual procedure takes one to two hours, & after one to three weeks, the procedure heals completely. Permanent makeup will fade after three to five years, & can be freshened w/ a touch-up. Permanent cosmetics are employed not only for enhancement of natural features, but also to camouflage scars, as an adjunct before chemotherapy or after breast surgery to create an areola.

Skin Resurfacing-Pixel LaserPixel is our newest laser. As always, we offer state of the art technology. Pixel provides deep skin resurfacing that smooths wrinkles & scars. Historically, CO2 lasers have been used to burn the top layer of skin & bring freshness & smoothing as the healing process completes, which takes six weeks & beyond. Think Samantha on Sex in the City–she had a laser resurfacing & had to shroud herself to go out in public.PIXEL can smooth the skin w/ literally no downtime (no shrouding) by using the laser to evaporate pin point cells down to the dermal level. New skin fills in these pore size ‘pixels’ & stem cells begin to produce collagen under those lines & scars. Between 40-60% of the skin is treated in a session, giving maximum benefits w/ minimal trauma.The treatments last approximately 40 minutes, after a 20 minute topical anesthetic application ( you get to relax in our massage recliner during this). A light sunburned feeling & flush lasts 24-72 hours, followed by light exfoliation for several days. The skin is looking visibly refreshed over the next two weeks, w/ full results realized over the next two months. We are recommending two to three treatments for the optimal change in the skin tissue. The Pixel is safe for all skin types, including Asian, African-American & Hispanic skin.
Varicose Vein Removal Sclerotherapy
Treatment for Leg VeinsLumenis one & sclerotherapy. Varicose veins, usually a large, raised deeper blue vein that is described as ‘ropey’, need different treatment from discolored non-raised clusters, called spider veins. Now, using the new combined technologies of the Lumenis One system, unsightly leg veins can be treated. Lumenis One is equipped w/ two different light technologies. The laser specialist will use either or both, depending on your veins. The laser component of the Lumenis One system is used to treat larger, deeper veins (reticular veins). A small spot of laser light travels through the skin & is absorbed by the blood within the vein, on the basis of its color. The smaller, spider veins are treated using light energy, the second component of the Lumenis One System. The light energy is absorbed by the blood, changed to heat, & the vein is destroyed. This Intense Pulse Light (IPL) technology is exclusive to the Lumenis One System. Sclerotherapy is a popular method of reducing or eliminating spider veins. A solution called a sclerosing agent is injected into the veins; this solution causes an irritation to the inner lining of the vein, resulting in the collapse of the vessel. The body then reabsorbs the “bruise” over the next 3-6 weeks. A small gauge needle is used to perform the injections & most clients relate the discomfort to an ant bite. The number of treatments needed differs from client to client. An average five treatments is required in most cases. The treatment sessions last approximately 30 minutes.
