Teamine® Eye Complex and Concealer

Recently featured in Redbook Magazine!

Having huge, dark rings around your eyes is not a great look—but with screaming babies and buzzing gadgets keeping you up, it happens. To get rid of them, Doris Day, M.D., a dermatologist in New York City and the author of Forget the Facelift, recommends using Teamine® Eye Complex by Revision Skincare, because it contains natural minerals such as mica, silica and titanium dioxide, which brighten the skin by reflecting light. “The specific formulation of plant and tea extracts in teamine and the clinical data behind it are strong in helping improve dark under eye circles,” says Dr. Day.

Yesterday’s Revision® Skincare Seminar!

Revision® Seminar at Hotel ZaZa!

Revision® Seminar at Hotel ZaZa!

Yesterday, Revision® Skincare held their summer Skincare convention and seminar at Hotel ZaZa, right here in Houston!  We always strive to keep up with the latest technologies and innovations in the cosmetic industry for our patients, and are very passionate about constant and continuous education.  We learned all about the science and histology behind the brand and we are so excited to share it with y’all!

We started the morning off with a lecture from Tatiana Kononov, the Director of Research and Development.  She gave us an in-depth view behind the science of Revision® Skincare and what sets them apart from other medical-grade skincare lines.

We went into detail on the exclusive peptide blends that Revision® has in their products, including Palmitoyl Pentapeptide-4, which stimulates the synthesis of Collagen I, III, IV, and fibronectin; PP-4 is featured in Teamine® Eye Complex.  Tatiana also approached Acetyl Hexapeptide-8, the key ingredient in Revox® II.  AH-8 is known to reduce the formulation on expression-line type wrinkles (crow’s feet, laugh lines, forehead lines, and glabella), by inhibiting acetylcholine from the nerve ending to the muscle… very similar to Botox®!  The other peptide that really stuck out for us was Tetradecyl Aminobutyroylvalylaminobutyric Urea Trifluoroacetate – 20 bucks to anyone that can say that 5 times fast – or T.A.U.T for short.  This tripeptide provides skin firming benefits, for an enhanced appearance, by increasing hyaluronic acid synthesis for a filling affect.  It is in several of Revision’s products, including both Intellishade® formulations, making Intellishade® perfect for protection and correction!

After lunch we went over the science behind vitamin C, sunscreen formulations, new products, and new skin care regimens we will be offering to our patients.  Stay tuned for another post on all of the new Revision® Skincare products we will begin to carry!

Overall, the entire day was extremely informative and we had a wonderful time!  Thank you to Revision® for putting the seminar together, and allowing us to share the information learned with our patients; we are all looking forward to the next one.

We had so much fun and learned a lot!

Healthy skin begins with Clarisonic®!

While cleansing is the first step in any skin care ritual, it is often overlooked.  Typical manual cleansing can and will leave behind dirt and oil trapped in pores, eeek! This build-up can damage the appearance and health of your skin and keep your skin care products from working like they should.

Used and recommended by skin care physicians and dermatologists, Clarisonic® Sonic Skin Cleansing Systems use a patented sonic frequency of more than 300 movements per second to gently, yet thoroughly remove 6X more makeup and 2X more dirt and oil than cleansing with your hands alone. Cleaner skin is the first step toward healthier skin. And healthier skin is smoother, more radiant and more beautiful.

Sonic Cleansing Benefits:

  • Removes makeup 6X better than manual cleansing
  • Removes impurities that keep creams and serums from working their best
  • Gentle enough to use twice a day
  • Reduces oily areas, dry skin patches and blemishes
  • Minimizes the appearance of visible pores

Vitamin C: Nature’s Most Powerful Antioxidant Therapy

vitamin-C-

Daily exposure to the damaging rays of the sun and the environment can prematurely age your skin. So, your skin needs all the protection it can get to stay looking young and healthy. Vitamin C has been proven to neutralize free radicals in the prevention of skin cell damage when absorbed by the skin.  It is the most powerful antioxidant in the world and has led to several scientific breakthroughs in skin care.

Our C-Serums contain the professional-grade Vitamin C that gives your skin the protection it needs.  By penetrating the epidermis and dermis to protect skin cells and stimulate collagen production, they help skin to look and feel healthier.  All of our vitamin C serums are jam packed with THD Ascorbate, the most powerful form of Vitamin C.  According to Tatiana Kononov, director of research and development for Revision Skincare, “One of the ingredients breaking through now is the THD ascorbate, a vitamin C derivative that’s unique in that its extremely stable and functional. It’s similar to L-ascorbic acid, but without those issues of being unstable and not bioavailable. It’s anti-aging, antioxidant, and brightening. It’s a very expensive ingredient, but it is the gold standard of Vitamin C technology.” It also promotes collagen synthesis and protects skin from UVA/UVB rays.  Who wouldn’t want this?!  The perfect solution for looking years younger and sporting a beautiful, healthy glow at any age.

Professional C Serum Antioxidant Therapy:

  • Helps to prevent signs of premature aging, including fine lines and wrinkles
  • Helps to protect against future skin damage
  • Stimulates collagen production for firmer, more resilient skin
  • Lightens and brightens skin for more even tone
  • Moisturizes and increases skin hydration for softer, smoother texture

 

What Makes Professional C-Serums Better?

Professional C Serums offer maximum antioxidant protection with superior penetration and stability that you won’t find in other Vitamin C products.

Easy To Use – Simply apply a few drops of serum to your face, neck , chest and around your eyes in the morning for maximum daily skin protection benefits.

Quickly Absorbed – Your skin will absorb the serum quickly, providing immediate antioxidant benefits that won’t rub or wash off.

Lasting Stability – Our Professional C Serums are proven to be more stable over time, which can lead to greater efficacy. Other serums can break down and lose potency more quickly.

 

Don’t Wait to Start Protecting Your Skin!!  Protecting your skin is the greatest gift you can give yourself. By implementing antioxidant therapy into your daily routine, you’ll enjoy healthier, younger-looking skin.

 

So, which of our vitamin C serums would be best suited for you?

glytone c serumRight now we have the 2 best vitamin C serums on the market; one is from our Glytone line, the other from Revision Skin Care.  They both contain THD Ascorbate, which is the most powerful form of vitamin C, to help brighten dull skin, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and moisturizes skin.   Our Glytone Vitamin C Serum is best suited for maturing skin (I would say age 30 and up).  Glytone’s serum has time released vitamin C & E, red tea flavonoids, and Glycolic acid, and is better suited for patients needing correction.  Glytone’s Vitamin C Serum is priced at $120.

revision vit cOur Revision Vitamin C Serum has many of the same benefits as Glytone’s without the glycolic acid.  Revision’s vitamin C serum is best suited for younger, less mature skin, and patients seeking long-term protection for their skin.  Revision’s Vitamin C Serum is priced at $66.  Check out a recent article from MedEsthetics Magazine, featuring our Revision and Glytone skin care lines!

journeejpegWe also have a tinted moisturizer, Journee, and although it is not a serum, this product is saturated with vitamin C along with other potent antioxidants.  Like other Neocutis products, Journee has growth factor to help with cellular turn over, boost collagen production, and actually improve the DNA of your skin.  It also contains medical grade SPF, making it the perfect all-in-one day cream.  Journee is suitable for ALL skin types and is priced at $120.  Click here to read more information on our Neocutis line!

Did You Know?

Did You Know?

To actually repair your complexion…
• It has to be corrected from the inside out – not from the outside
in
• You have to actually reverse the causes – and signs – of aging
• You have to pick a medical grade skin care regimen
You have to make a commitment to stay with it for 4-5 months

As our skin ages, it’s not so pretty…
• The outer layer of your skin thickens, creating uneven texture
• You have less cell turnover
• Your pores enlarge
• Cells that make melanin function irregularly, leading to age
spots and discoloration
• Collagen and elastin production slows down, weakening and
loosening your skin
• Thick, irregular connective tissue forms, contributing to wrinkles

Over-the-Counter Skin Care Products…
• Contain low (weak) concentrations of active ingredients, by law
• Aren’t formulated with enough strength to heal below the surface
• Only work on the top layer of your skin
• Don’t penetrate deeply enough to actually change your skin
• Won’t correct your underlying skin condition, so they…
• Won’t result in a permanent improvement in your skin

We invite you to retrain your skin back to health with a customized plan to treat your unique skin concerns. The plan takes only moments a day, and once your skin has been repaired you can keep it healthy with a simple maintenance plan.  Set up a skin analysis and start your journey to beautiful, flawless skin!

More About the VISIA Complexion Analysis System:
The VISIA Complexion Analysis System scans your skin and captures key visual information, using multi-spectral imaging and analysis, of eight areas that affect your skin’s health and appearance. We use the VISIA to measure your skin pigmentation, pore size, porphyrins (evidence of bacteria), UV spots, photo damage (typically from sun damage), texture and wrinkles. With this quantitative assessment of your skin, we compare your skins features to other individuals of the same sex, age and skin type to provide you with your relative skin condition within your peer group. We then prepare your personalized skin care regime and rejuvenation program.

As your treatments progress, the VISIA is used to track the changes in your skin and the effectiveness of your skin care program. Set up an appointment for a free consultation today!
