The Mind-Beauty Connection

14 November 2014

We’ve talked about the mind-beauty connection before, and there are many studies about attractiveness and self-esteem.  When TriBeCa MedSpa opened our doors in 2006, we announced our mission statement: Our MedSpa is committed to making you look and feel beautiful, because we uniquely understand that while looking beautiful and feeling beautiful are linked, they are not always the same thing.  While some scholars suggest that beauty ideals are set by society, there are more positive media influences sending messages of going for our individual beauty best.

At TriBeCa MedSpa, we always offer complimentary consultations because we firmly believe that you should not be charged for taking the first step toward feeling beautiful and caring for your skin.  In your consultation one of our expertly trained Medical Aestheticians will listen to what your skin concerns are and educate you about the best treatment and product options for you.  Contact us to schedule your consultation; all you have to lose is time.

To quote the great beauty icon, Audrey Hepburn: “For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.”

The Magic Bullet of Anti-Aging

17 September 2014

Tretinoin is a topical skincare product derived from Vitamin A that has been on the market for over 20 years.  While tretinoin was first prescribed as an acne solution, the anti-aging effects on the skin were undeniable.  A double-blind study (done in 1988) of tretinoin’s effect on photodamaged skin found that all 30 patients who completed the 16-week study showed a significant improvement including diminished wrinkles and brown spots.

Tretinoin, also known by the brand name Retin-A, has years of scientific backing on its ability to boost cell-turnover, normalize melanocyte cells (which produce pigment) and even stimulate collagen production.  With proven results in all three of these key factors of anti-aging, the question is: Why isn’t everyone using tretinoin?

Lack of user education has affected tretinoin’s popularity.  Even when used correctly (slowly, often beginning with just a pea-sized application for the entire face once or twice a week) the product can be irritating, causing some users to give up before seeing the positive effects.  Redness, irritation, flaking and in some cases breakouts can happen for the first 8 weeks of use.  When properly educated about how the product works and following careful dosage, your skin will build a tolerance to the product and you can minimize the negative side effects.  Quality formulations such as Obagi’s tretinoin also minimize this initial irritation.  Even so, in today’s ‘instant’ age some users find that toughing it out now for guaranteed results later is an exercise in patience.  Even in the 21st century, the truth is that good things come to those that wait.

Are you ready to find out if the product also known as ‘the anti-aging magic bullet’ is right for you? Contact us to schedule a complimentary consultation.
