How to get rid of stretch marks and wrinkles at home


No-one needs to have stretch marks or wrinkles for life now that there is a simple technique and its something you can do at home. One thing I must be clear about is I am tallking about the Environ Face and Body Rollers and you have to know that it is really Environ as there are alot of knock off companies pretending to be Environ. I am a Environ distributor so let me know if you are serious about taking care of your stretch marks or wrinkles and we will go from there. Not all rollers are created equally so take that into consideration if you have a roller now. Needling or CIT (collagen induction therapy) is an interesting, low-tech technique that is actually very effective in treating the following skin conditions: wrinkles, loose skin, skin aging, stretch marks (striae distensiae) cellulite, hyperpigmentation and scars. There are basically two types of needling depending on the length of needle utilized. A doctor utilizes 2.5 to 3 mm long needles, whereas 0.02 to 2 mm needles are employed for home use and by nurse practitioners, respectively. All parts of the body including the face as well as all skin types can be safely treated with this technique. I has found that the more aggressive the treatment, the more impressive the results. The results can be seen with as little as one treatment, I recommend using the roller (especially the body roller) at night before bed. The device consists of a roller with up to 200 needles attached to it in an evenly spaced and perpendicular manner. When you apply pressure and roll the device over the treated area to penetrate the associated dermis thousands of times with the needles. This in turn induces an "avalanche" of collagen production within the dermis, resulting in skin tightening and stretch mark diminishment. This process is often referred to as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT). When using the roller the products applied first are very important. Call me for a full skin evaluation and we can make sure to get you on the right Vitamin Products for you. Ablative skin treatments such as dermabrasion, chemical peels and laser treatments involve removing various amounts of the outer protective covering of the skin (epidermis) in order to force the body to produce a new tissue skin covering. Certain risks maybe associated with these procedures including long-term discomfort, prolonged inflammation with associated redness, light sensitivity and possible irreversible pigment changes and scarring. However, there are no known significant risks of permanent skin damage with needling treatments since the outer layer of the skin remains intact with this methodology. When performed in conjunction with antioxidant vitamin A and C fat-soluble oil application, the penetration of these latter substances is vastly increased. I enjoy helping people take care of there skin if you have any questions please call me (310)967-7701!

Safety first how Supermodels look great without tanning


After my client asked me again today what was the most important thing to think about with taking care of her skin I realized why I gave her the advice I did. All the super models I had worked with always had one thing in common they wore a hat during daylight hours. I mentioned it was more important than sunblock as sunblock has to be applied every 2 hours and driving in the sun is damaging to the skin. She could keep spending money on the products but without protecting her skin from the sun the skin will continue to get worse. To reverse the signs of aging it is more important than applying any products. I than apply an organic custom airbrush blend to my face arms and kneck without any makeup looks so great and natural. As a recommendation, don't have your face in the sun for more than around five minutes at a time, and avoid this period during the hottest time of the day. Yes something as simple as a hat can save your skin. To buy this alternative to tanning go to the store at www.platinumimageservices.com

Platinum Image Services brings beauty and health needs to the customer at home or the office


At least that’s what Christine Reed, CEO and one of the founders of the company, has noted. The company allows customers to use a smart phone application or email to make an appointment, but instead of traveling to the beauty salon, the beauty experts will travel to the client’s office or home to fulfill hair, health, and makeup needs, depending on the occasion. “The people who seek out this service are mostly professional women with a hectic work schedule or stay-at-home moms with young children who don’t have much time to go to a hair salon, as well as women with a busy social life or brides,” said Christine Reed Hair styling services start at $100 and makeup services at $75. Platinum Image Services began in 2004 in Los Angeles, where the company is headquartered. The idea for Platinum Image Services actually came from working on clients at previous salon "Christine Reed Lash Salon" "There were many clients that would come into the salon so stressed and than get relaxed and have to drive in traffic again." "Plus it made it to where I can spend more time with one client if they need it and not feel like there is another client waiting in the hall for me." Professionals interested in becoming a part of the Platinum team must complete a selection process including interviews, a background check and verification of personal information.
