Products We Love: Obagi Professional-C Serum 0

VPS-Obagi-C

Who doesn’t want to sport tighter brighter skin for the summer? It’s time to say hello to vitamin C.

Vitamin C in the form of L-ascorbic acid is easily absorbed by the skin and packs some major beauty benefits such as brightening the skin tone, inhibiting melanin production, and lightening hyper-pigmentation. It can also restore moisture balance to the skin and boost collagen synthesis, firming the skin and preventing fine lines and wrinkles. Furthermore, vitamin C provides natural protection against both UVA and UVB rays, making summer the perfect time to start your regimen.

We love Obagi Professional-C Serum because it has been proven to have superior absorption into the epidermis and dermis of the skin, allowing you to soak up all of the beautiful benefits.

Skin Medica SPF 30+ 0

VPS-Summer-Skincare

Summer is officially here! It’s easy to get caught up in the moment and bask in the sun all day. Though the sun provides us with Vitamin D and can be great for the soul… it can wreak havoc on our skin. Wrinkles, premature aging, and an increased risk of skin cancer are just a few of the things that can be associated with too much sun exposure.

Stay smart and safe this summer by covering up with a broad spectrum UVA / UVB sun protectant such as Skin Medica’s Daily Physical Defense SPF 30+. This product is appropriate for all skin types including sensitive and post-procedure skin. It contains green tea leaf extract, a natural antioxidant that is rich in polyphenols as well as caffeine which helps prevent free radical damage.

The key to sun protection is to re-apply often rather than lathering on SPF 80. Research has shown that higher SPFs don’t necessarily provide extra protection, but are filled with unnecessary chemicals which may do more harm than good. Stick with a high quality sunscreen rather than just a high number of SPF, re-apply often , and have fun in the sun.

Juvederm Voluma xc 0

VPS-Liquid-Facelift

Are you looking for a lift but not quite willing to go under the knife? Juvederm has just released the first FDA approved filler to not only smooth lines and wrinkles, but add volume to the cheek area.

As we age, we lose collagen. This results in a lack of volume and a “sagging” look to the skin. Lack of volume is one of the key indicators of age. Many opt for a face lift to remove excess skin and diminish the look of an aging face, however, some may feel that this is too extreme.

Juvederm Voluma XC is a hyaluronic acid based injectable gel that adds volume and a lift to the face, specifically the cheek area. The results can last for up to 2 years and the side effects are minimal and can include swelling, tenderness, and slight bruising. Another benefit of Voluma is that the downtime after your procedure is minimal. You will see results right away and resume normal activities in just 24 hours.
