Crow’s Feet: Fight those Fine Lines!

Aging is a fact of life and the eyes are the first to show real signs of aging.  Puffy eyes, dark circles, fine lines, crow’s feet, and broken capillaries are the most common signs. Start taking care of your eye area and using an eye treatment product in your early 20s; prevention is the key and with more knowledge you can keep your skin looking younger well into your post menopausal years.

eye treatment the lil spa roomThe skin of the face and the body vary in thicknesses throughout the body.  The thinnest skin is approximately 0.5 millimeter in thickness, is found under your eyes and on the eyelids. The thickest skin, at approximately 4 mm, is on the palms of your hands and soles of your feet. Since the skin around our eyes is thinner, it is more prone to sun damage which leads to pigmentation and collagen loss, causing lines, thinner skin and making dark circles more obvious. Sebaceous glands or oil producing glands also have a more active role in how your skin reacts. They are more concentrated around your nose than any other part of the face.  There are virtually no sebaceous glands under the eye making it prone to dryness. On the body these glands are located in the chest and back area which can be a problem for those suffering with acne.

*The 5 most common causes of dark circles are allergies, dehydration, lack of sleep, anemia, and heredity.

Tips to keep your eyes youthful:

Hydrate: By drinking more water you will feel and look better.  Hydrating will flush out the toxins giving your skin the moisture it needs to look its best.

Well-balanced healthy diet: Eating healthy is anti-aging from the inside out. Taking a good nutritional supplement plus eating more fresh fruits and vegetables is crucial for good health. Free radicals cause aging and to fight free radicals we need a diet high in antioxidants. Supplements and diet will also prevent anemia.

Avoid rubbing your eyes: This causes trauma which in turn can cause dark pigment under the eye area.

Get 8 hours of sleep: Not enough sleep makes your skin paler which in turn shows more of the tiny blood vessels under the eye area. Sleep is needed for your body to recover from the day’s stresses.

Less salt: Excess fluid retention will make your eyes puffy. Over time the puffy eyes end up looking more like under eye bags as we age.

Remove your makeup before bed: A good skincare regimen I highly recommend for better skin and to anti-age your eyes. Leaving mascara on will cause damage to the eyelashes. Eye makeup and foundation clogs pores. Night time is the perfect time for your skin to recover from all the free radicals during the day.

Collagen eye treatment san antonioDo not use oil based makeup: Oil based cosmetics are not healthy for your skin and especially the eye area. Mineral oil is found in our moisturizers and cosmetics. It is an inexpensive product used by many cosmetic companies and is not healthy for the skin. It clogs pores and prevents your skin from breathing.

Galvanic Body Sculpting Treatment

Galvanic Body Sculpting Treatment

New galvanic technology treatments; to smooth and minimize the appearance of stretch marks, body fat, & cellulite for slimmer, firmer, and youthful looking skin. (Great for loose skin after pregnancy & weight loss) A gentle galvanic current and body gels are used to hand sculpt away those unsightly cellulite pockets around the hips and thighs, as well minimize stretch marks, or tighten up loose belly skin. Even flabby underarms can be tightened with a 2 – 4 week series of treatments. This cellulite treatment process creates a flow of fresh oxygenated blood that rich in natural nutrients, causing the release and clearing of waste and toxins from the fat cells reducing and eliminating cellulite because it addresses the root cause directly and not just the symptom.  It activates, stimulates and rejuvenates the lymphatic system with a reverse deep tissue massage technique. This subsequently breaks up and removes the orange peel cellulite look and results in smooth and toned skin.  Done in 30-minutes, these non-invasive cellulite-busting sessions can potentially break stored fat away from cell walls — and metabolize that same fat, the improved circulation removes the “sludge” leaving the fibrous tissue soft, healthy and flexible, keeping skin looking more youthful.body spa

Cellulite is the dimpled appearance of the skin that occurs when fat deposits sit just below the skin’s surface. This is a common problem, particularly for women. The thighs, buttocks and stomach are the most common areas where cellulite builds up. Cellulite typically shows up sometime after puberty. It is not a dangerous problem, and it is not necessarily a sign of obesity. Even slender people can develop cellulite, because everyone has fat just underneath the skin.

How often are treatments performed?  The initial treatment series consists of 3 treatment sessions- treatments are performed 1-3x a week. Some clients see the improvements as soon as 2- sessions, while others may need 4-6 sessions. Maintenance treatments are typically done every 3-6 months after the initial series in order to keep up the results achieved. Each treatment session is between 20-45 minutes long, but the time varies depending on a client’s size and how many treatment sites are indicated.

After your first session you can still see results up to 72 hours later.   Once you begin regular sessions you will have longer lasting results.  Then after 3 months you are just doing maintenance sessions.  Think of it like a gym workout…once you are at your peak physically then you just need to maintain it.

back treatedWhat is the benefit of using pulsating galvanic current on the body?

Direct (galvanic) currents, whether pulsating or not, can assist in the delivery of like charged key ingredients to the skin by improving osmotic flow. This is increasingly important for enhancing delivery of key ingredients to areas with thicker skin. Additional research shows that the pulsating current enhances fluid vibration, which, in turn, promotes healthy circulation. Pulsating galvanic currents aid in stimulating skin and increasing cellular communication to help purify and refresh skin and help reduce the visible signs of skin aging. Pulsating galvanic currents are optimally designed for use on the body where the skin can benefit from enhanced fluid vibration. body spa

Natural Ways to Treat Cellulite:

Exercises for treatment of cellulite:

  •  Cardiovascular exercises such as running, jogging and swimming are effective for the treatment.
  • Squats and Lunges targets buttock, thighs and pelvic muscles.
  • Pelvic lift or bridge is also a target type exercise for toning the buttock, hamstrings and quads.

Additional Ways to Rid Your Body of Cellulite:

  •  Body brushing makes the skin brighter and smoother and softer. Like any exfoliator, it sloughs away dead, dry surface cells – you can see the fine powder it creates. It is also thought to stimulate the lymphatic system and circulation helping to tackle cellulite.
  • Massage: Getting rid of cellulite by massage is NOT a way to entirely cure, but it is more of an alternative method in reducing the ugly appearance of cellulite in your skin.  Basically you are increasing circulation and helping with lymphatic drainage here too.

What Causes Cellulite?

Causes of cellulite are varied but the most common cause is related to poor blood circulation, reduced venous flow, impaired lymphatic drainage and fluid retention which can trigger the transformation of subcutaneous fat cells into cellulite. The predisposition to cellulite seems to be genetically inherited. Some people simply have more fat cells, weak veins, fragile lymphatic vessels, poor circulation or hormonal sensitivity.

celluliteThe Truth about Cellulite:

Cellulite is the term used to describe deposits of fat and other material trapped in pockets of connective tissue beneath the skin. Cellulite causes the progressive dimpling appearance of the skin. The main factors responsible for cellulite are excess consumption of saturated fats, lack of exercise, poor hydration and imbalances in hormonal function. 80% of all women are affected by cellulite.   Also do not forget that genetics always plays a part.

Why do females have more cellulite than men? Cellulite occurs more frequently in women than in men because of the way subcutaneous fat is compartmentalized.

The following also contribute to cellulite in one way or another:

  •  Female Hormones
  • Pregnancy
  • Stress
  • Sedentary Lifestyles
  • Smoking
  • Enlarged Lymph Nodes
  • Obesity

It is important to understand that these factors may not contribute equally in different people. In some people there may be primary and contributing factors to cellulite.

Cellulite has 5 stages of development and is considered a solely cosmetic condition. Indeed, until recently, cellulite was not acknowledged in medical literature. Now, research has shown that changes over time in the body’s skin structure actually lead to the transformation of fat cells into cellulite.

STAGE 1– Blood microcirculation, venous flow, and/or lymphatic drainage to the subcutaneous layer are impaired. Reduced blood circulation starves and weakens the surrounding tissue, making it more susceptible to cellulite. Reduced venous flow translates to higher fluid retention and pooling of the blood. Reduced lymphatic drainage means that lymph fluids, which normally carry waste away from the cells, are trapped in the area. The septae connective tissue may begin to become more fibrous. In this stage, all the changes are not visible to the naked eye. There may not be any other symptoms, with the possible exception of cuts and bruises taking longer to heal because of the impaired circulation.

STAGE 2 – Once the circulation is reduced, the capillaries and veins become weakened and leak blood into the surrounding tissue. This increases the pressure in the tissue and restricts circulation and fluid drainage even more. In this stage, you may notice thicker and tenderer skin than normal, as well as discoloration or broken veins. The skin more also bruise more easily, however, there is no appearance of the lumpy cellulite bumps yet.

STAGE 3 – After a few months of lymphatic fluid buildup, the fat tissues become swollen and begin to push against the outer skin, the first signs of the lumps and the “orange peel” look appear.

STAGE 4 – The static lymphatic fluid causes the fibrous septae to congeal into thicker fibers. Cells starved of oxygen and nutrients may also become incorporated into these fibers, thus adding to the thickness of the fibers. These fibers begin to trap and squeeze the fat cells, which press on the surrounding tissue and reduce area circulation even more. Because of the lack of circulation the skin may feel cold to the touch.

STAGE 5 – Because of the high pressure, blood circulation is re-routed around the cellulite area. Septae fibers continue to grow to an extent that the fat cells are completely trapped. Although fat continues to be stored in these cells, it is not efficiently removed through exercise or diet because of the poor circulation. In this stage, the thick fibers, trapped fat cells and stagnant fluids form a honeycomb structure called steatomes, this causes the “cheesecake” lumps and bumps that are the hallmark of cellulite.
