A patented peptide complex shown to stimulate collagen production and reduce the look of fine lines when used consistently over time.
Performed by dermatologists and facialists, this treatment exfoliates the top layer of dead skin cells with a wand that sprays on and then vacuums off extremely fine aluminum-oxide crystals. A newer form of the technology uses a vibrating diamond tip in place of the crystals.
A cosmetic procedure during which a device studded with tiny needles pierce the skin to incite the body's natural healing response, resulting in increased cell turnover and collagen production to improve skin's tone and texture. At home tools have shorter pins, which work superficially; professional devices with longer needles drive deeper for more significant improvements in wrinkles and scars (along with greater downtime).
Mineral Oil (Paraffin Oil)
Liquid petrolatum which has an excellent ability to cut through grease, dirt and makeup. Commonly used in skin care and baby products. Also useful in locking in moisture. Mineral oil acts as a thin layer on the skin, and essentially creates a barrier which has been known to block pores. To be avoided when skin is problematic and prone to breakouts.
