And honestly, it’s one of my favorite facials — if not my favorite — because of the results it creates.

 

Simply, this facial is custom-built to exfoliate + hydrate + brighten + tighten your gorgeous face!

 

If you’re a skin geek like me here’s the breakdown of how this signature facial can help your skin feel fresh and renewed.

 

 

What Is A Renew | Signature Facelift®?

 

This facial helps to reverse the visible effects of skin damage in several ways —

  • First, it powers away dull, dead cells to illuminate the skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, clogged pores and blemishes.

  • Then, it supports collagen for firmer-looking skin over time. (Hello, gorgeous!)

  • Our signature, results-driven treatment combines Vitamin C, hydroxy acids and enzymes to speed up cellular renewal.

  • Stem cells are combined with brightening, protection, detox and energy complexes.

  • Vitamin C and fruit enzymes blended in an organic aloe vera base visibly reduce redness and brighten the skin.

  •  Hyaluronic acid provides superior hydration.

  •  And this peel is perfect for skin types that are: redness-prone, dry/dehydrated, smoker’s skin, tired/ dull, post-microdermabrasion, oily/acne.

truSculpt iD® vs. CoolSculpting® – A Melt the Fat or Freeze the Fat Comparison

trusculpt-vs-coolsculpting.png


When it comes to body contouring, we’re pretty sure you’ve heard the words truSculpt or CoolSculpting.

Followed by that is usually terms like “melt the fat” or “freeze the fat” when referencing these body sculpting technologies.


And often times this is where confusion sets in.

Because there’s much debate on which body contouring technology is better and more effective — to melt fat or to freeze fat.

Not only is this one of the big questions in medical aesthetics today, but it’s also on the minds of many potential clients looking to contour their body without surgery.

 

We know you want to target those areas on the body that can be stubborn and don’t want to let that fat go no matter how hard you exercise or eat right — like the abdomen, flanks, back, arms and even the chin area.

 

But how do all of these body contouring machines compare?

 

Let’s take a look, shall we…

To Sum it Up

 

Now you’ve seen the comparisons – to melt or to freeze – those stubborn areas on your body where no amount of jumping jacks, lunges, hot yoga sessions and green smoothie sipping can help.

  

Call us bias (we LOVE our truSculpt iD® technology), but it looks like if you want to maximize your time, increase your potential for permanent fat reduction, experience little to no discomfort during the body contouring treatment and tighten your skin while treating your problem areas – truSculpt iD® has you covered in all of those areas and then some.

 

If you asked us whether we’d melt our fat or freeze our fat – we’d simply say, “Pass me a frozen drink ‘cause it’s about to get warm up in here while I melt this fat away!”

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.
