What scares you the most about sun exposure, wrinkles or cancer? In a recent survey it seems the threat of wrinkles is often a more powerful behavior-change than the threat of cancer.
New rules implemented last year by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration state sunscreens must say broad-spectrum – protecting against both UVA and UVB rays—and that have an SPF of 15 or higher can claim to reduce the risk of early skin aging and skin cancer. Both types of rays are implicated in photoaging and cancer. Products that don’t protect against both types of rays or that have an SPF between 2 and 14 can claim only to help prevent sunburn.
Great news for us simply trust what the label states. The new rules also say that products claiming water resistance must say how long a user can expect to get that protection while swimming or sweating, either 40 minutes or 80 minutes. And sunscreens can no longer be called “sunblocks” or be labeled as “waterproof” or “sweatproof.”
Today’s parents and grandparents spend hours in the sun watching their busy children play sports. You can’t drive past a grass field without seeing a soccer game going on, and each weekend we find ourselves doing our best to cover up, but knowing we’re still getting sun. Then if you’re 40+ you might have been a baby oil tanner. No sunscreen needed for that beautiful burn.

Human skin can speak volumes about one’s health, and indeed is a reflection of inner health the vast majority of time. Yet, sometimes no matter what steps a person takes his or her skin looks older than desired. This can be the result of stress, excess sun exposure, insufficient antioxidants, metabolic conditions and a myriad of other factors. This does not necessarily mean that a person is not healthy on the inside, yet the skin may not fully embody that radiant glow from within. It is not necessary to passively accept this reflection of a person’s inner level of wellness. Next up to combat this problem is Ultra sound which will help absorb hyaluronic solution to your surface of your skin.
Genesis: Firms and tightens skin. Laser Genesis Skin Therapy uses advanced science to achieve vibrant, even skin tone and smooth texture in both men and women. Light penetrates deeply into the skin where collagen is manufactured, stimulating an increase of new collagen production. Unlike harsher methods, this is done without destroying the upper layers of skin (non-ablative). The Laser Genesis procedure safely, discretely and effectively treats scars, uneven textures, fine line wrinkles and large pores. The result is skin with smoother texture and a healthier appearance. The skin is gently warmed during this procedure, and daily activities may be resumed right away. This is truly a rejuvenating experience with no downtime.
Oxygen: Refreshes skin after treatment. Oxygen therapy is ideal for mature or dry skin, but can be beneficial to many skin types. Whether male or female, young or old, this skin treatment can be an effective and relaxing process. It is believed that oxygen can stimulate the growth of new cells as well as restore skin moisture. Oxygen is also used to detoxify the skin. Harmful toxins are washed away and replaced by healthy nutrients. The oxygen propels these nutrients to the skin cells, thus promoting healing, moisturizing, firming, and conditioning.
