ASK CHARMAYNE


Q: What Is Laser Genesis?

A: Well, I can’t start this Q& A off without saying how much I LOVE Laser Genesis. I recommend this treatment to just about every client who comes to see me; especially if they have an event coming up soon (even that weekend) because most people see results right away.

And this service is one of our favorite treatments at Renew – not just for you the client – but I personally use Laser Genesis for my skincare routine + maintenance.

Ok, enough about me and my love for Laser Genesis – let’s find out WHY I love this skincare treatment so much and think you will too!

 

WHAT IS LASER GENESIS?

Laser Genesis is a non-invasive laser treatment that helps restore and smooth out skin tone and texture as well as reduce acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, redness, pore size and can aid in the treatment of active acne.

 

The Laser Genesis’s heat-based laser boosts collagen growth and loves to work on treating acne scars and rosacea.

  

I don’t just recommend Laser Genesis, I’m a faithful user of this treatment because it works. Especially for rosacea sufferers like myself.
— Charmayne Torres-Trujillo, Medical Aesthetician


WHO IS LASER GENESIS FOR?

The short answer: just about anyone!

If you struggle with acne, acne scarring, rosacea, large pores or desire an overall refresh of your skin tone and texture – without going under the knife – Laser Genesis is for you.

Of course, there are always exceptions when it comes to certain skin types that Laser Genesis may not be useful for, so please speak with your skin care expert.

 

HOW DOES LASER GENESIS WORK?

Laser Genesis can be done on the face, neck and chest and depending on the area you’re receiving this treatment, the appointment is typically around 30-45 minutes.

 

Most people report that Laser Genesis is not painful – only a warm sensation is felt. And yet, another reason why we love this treatment: zero downtime and recovery.

 

Now, taking into consideration your skin type and desired results, multiple treatments (3-5) of Laser Genesis (spaced out over 4+ weeks) is recommended.

 

WHAT RESULTS FROM LASER GENESIS CAN I EXPECT?

With this lunchtime laser treatment, you can potentially see results right after receiving Laser Genesis. However, the most optimal results and benefits are seen within 3-6 months (and oftentimes, beyond that timeframe).

 

Maintenance for results – especially if being treated for pigment and rosacea challenges – are highly recommended every 6-12 months.

 

Protecting yourself from the sun and maintaining a consistent skincare regimen at home can also help extend your results from Laser Genesis.

That’s a lot like our BFF Laser Genesis: totally there for you when you’re at your wits end with your skin, shows up consistently for you with treatments and helps you feel all warm and fuzzy (outside + inside…because laser and confidence!).

Best Non-Surgical Facelift Treatment

Best-Non-Surgical-Facelift-Treatment.png



Have you looked in the mirror lately, ran your hands over your neck area and muttered the words, “ugh, turkey neck”?

 

But thought to yourself, “No way am I going under the knife for a nip and tuck!”

 

What if we said there’s a non-surgical facelift treatment to help not only the dreaded turkey neck (sagging skin), but crow’s feet and deep wrinkles as well?

 

And this treatment can be done during your lunchtime…(what?!).

 

This skin tightening procedure is called Forma (by InMode) and not only gives you the option of a non-surgical facelift treatment, but also allows for an in-office procedure with little to no downtime.

  

Ok, let’s get into the details, shall we?

 

 

What is Forma for Skin Tightening?

 

“Forma is the first auto-adjusting non-invasive, thermal skin treatment for deep and uniform tissue stimulation. Forma uses radio-frequency power that flows uniformly between the electrodes to provide a comfortable thermal experience with immediate and subsequent contraction.”  - Forma by InMode

 

Ok, so what does all this radio-frequency and electrodes talk really mean?

 

It means that Forma is your non-surgical treatment superstar for face tightening, deep wrinkles, and collagen stimulation.

  

Now that you know you don’t have to go under the knife for that saggy skin, what can you expect from this Forma procedure?

 

 

Non-Surgical Facelift Treatment | What to Expect

 

Unlike going under the knife (and anesthesia for that matter), Forma only requires an in-office visit with your skincare professional and less than an hour of your time.

 

Hence why they call this the “lunch-time” procedure.

 

You may experience some warmth or slight tingling during the Forma treatment, but nothing that should be highly uncomfortable.  

 

Over time your skin can reveal a more youthful, glowing appearance that doesn’t involve bandages on your face from going under the knife.


in this video charmayne torres-trujillo talks about forma for skin tightening and the potential results for this “lunch-time” procedure.


To Sum it Up

 

If you’re looking for a solution to sagging skin, crow’s feet and/or deep wrinkles, but don’t want an invasive procedure – Forma by InMode is your “lunch-time”, non-surgical facelift treatment solution!

 

With little to no downtime and potential results that include a tighter and younger-looking appearance, Forma could be just the skincare treatment you’re looking for.

 

Say so long to the “gobble, gobble neck” and save your turkey for Thanksgiving.  


If you’re ready for skin tightening that doesn’t require going under the knife, request an appointment today to get started or call 719.423.0083 to schedule a FREE consultation.  



A Skin Care Alternative

What if we said NASA plays a major role in your skin care?

You’re probably thinking, “Well, if we can send a man to the moon, we should definitely be able to do something about these spots on my face or lines around my eyes by now.”

Yes. We are so on the same page.

And that’s why we want to tell you that NASA has your back when it comes to anti-aging and acne. 

 

So, what does NASA have to do with your skin care?

 

Welcome to the innovation of Celluma light therapy – a skin care alternative.

 

What is Celluma?

Celluma is an all-in-one low-level light therapy -- cleared by the FDA and backed by clinical research -- devised for anti-aging and acne skin care.

"Celluma light therapy works safely and effectively, without abrasive chemicals, harmful UV-rays or side effects and is a non-toxic, non-abrasive treatment." - Celluma by BioPhotas®

 

How Celluma Works

“Inspired by light. Proven by science.” - Celluma

 

BioPhotas® (the company behind Celluma) explains how this skin care alternative works:


“In the same way that plants use chlorophyll to convert sunlight into plant tissue, high intensity light emitting diodes (LEDs) utilizing specific, proven wavelengths of light can trigger a natural biostimulatory effect in human tissue.

Research has shown that phototherapy can increase circulation, accelerate tissue repair, kill acne bacteria, decrease inflammation, improve skin tone, texture and clarity, as well as ease muscle and joint pain, stiffness, spasm, and arthritis.

Research indicates that cells absorb particles of light (photons) and transform their energy into adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the form of energy that cells utilize.

The resulting elevation of ATP is then used to power metabolic processes; synthesize DNA, RNA, proteins, enzymes, and other products needed to repair or regenerate cell components; foster mitosis or cell proliferation; and restore homeostasis.

Simply put, the LED light source provides compromised cells with added energy so the cells performance is enhanced. For example, fibroblast cells will increase collagen and elastic production in connective tissue.”

 

Celluma - advanced, award winning light therapy for skin & pain management

 

 

Benefits of Celluma

  • Acne Treatment -- diminishes acne bacteria, clears existing breakouts and restores skin's healthy appearance.

  • Anti-Aging -- increases collagen and elastin production, reduces the look of fine lines and wrinkles and improves firmness and resilience of skin.

 

 

A skin care alternative

 

Dr. Rochelle Elijah and Charmayne Trujillo are proud to have Celluma at Renew and be the first to bring this service to Pueblo, Colorado.

We are extremely excited to offer this cutting-edge service for our clients -- especially those with stubborn acne and anyone looking for new and alternative ways to support the anti-aging process. 

Celluma can be done in a series of treatments (twice a week for six weeks) and the anti-aging and acne component can be an add-on for facials we provide.
