Can I Reverse the Signs of Aging?

Lumifacial, Medi Spa, PeelsJoanne FrumanComment

Can I Reverse the Signs of Aging?

This may seem impossible to some but with our new Solitone Light Therapy it's only a quick 30 minute treatment a few times a week with no down-time. Dig deep by adding an EMA Peel to maximize the light therapy treatment. This will aid in removing any surface damage and lightening the skin in a non-invasive manner. Then let the lights work their magic deep down in the dermis.

How does it work?
Soli-Tone offers two distinct facial treatments, LumiFacia®l LED Light Therapy and LumiLift® Photo Rejuvenation. These two facials address a broad range of skin challenges and speed the recovery of aging skin by promoting cellular rejuvenation from within. The treatments use three proven technologies: HF (High Frequency) Polarized current, microcurrent, and LED light therapy to produce a non-invasive total facial rejuvenation.

The incredible benefits of LumiFacial LED Light Therapy and LumiLift Photo Rejuvenation have even been featured on Oprah and The Today Show. They improve firmness and fine lines by increasing collagen and elastin. The treatments aid in healing and eliminating various skin conditions in every layer of skin.

How do the different colours work during the treatment?

Blue light is the shortest wave used. It reaches down into the skin’s pores to regulate and calm the oil glands, improving acne prone skin.

Green light is a longer wave reaching down to normalize the glands that regulate the coloring of the skin. This effect can decrease dark pigmentation spots, creating an even tone on the surface. It also reduces redness due to chemical irritation.

Yellow light extends down through the epidermis layer to reach the tiny blood vessels and lymph system. It is known for detoxifying the skin by stimulating blood circulation, thereby increasing the healing and health of the skin.

Red light is the longest wave, triggering repair throughout all layers of the skin. It is known to have a positive effect on the production of collagen and elastin, greatly improving hydration, firmness, and elasticity of the skin.

Celebrity Secret!

Medi Spa, Cold Laser, ArticlesJoanne FrumanComment

Movie stars are paid to look great on the red carpet, but some claim to have a secret weapon that’s available right here in Calgary!

Part 1:
We start with dermabrasion which is customized for the client, whether the skin needs detoxing, hydration or anti-aging. This treatment sloughs off dead skin build up, leaving your skin looking vibrant and glowing!

Microdermabrasion allows better absorption of your skincare products by increasing penetration. It effectively and safely treats and minimizes a wide range of skin conditions such as:

  • Discoloured and congested skin
  • Black/white heads
  • Oily/acneic skin
  • Dull complexion
  • Poor skin texture
  • Dryness/roughness
  • Sun damage

Microdermabrasion has no discomfort, no downtime and it is safe for all skin types! 

Part 2:
The 2nd part of the treatment consists of cold laser with our SAPPHIRE 3 PHYTOSCAN device from Switzerland which has an interchangeable pen device with an ionization chamber which enhances the activity of the vitamin infused phytoactive gels for deep penetration at a cellular level.

Very effective for:

  • Saggy eyelids
  • Eye bags
  • Fine lines/wrinkles
  • Rosacea/inflamed skin
  • Acne
  • Saggy jowls/neck
  • Psoriasis
  • Scarring
  • Sun damage/spots on face and hands
  • Skin congestion
  • Hair loss

Part 3:
The 3rd part of the treatment consists of a panel of light/photorejuvenation which covers whole face. We start with RED light which stimulates the skin and promotes the production of the energy source for cells known as adenosine triphosphate (ATP). By increasing ATP, the production of ELASTIN and COLLAGEN also increases and normal cellular function can be restored. Whether used with BLUE light therapy or RED light therapy, photodynamic therapy (PDT) is highly effective – for ACNE treatment, ACNE SCAR treatment, ANTI-AGING treatment, ROSACEA treatment, and many other skin concerns.

Part 4:
The 4th part of the treatment is a warm ultrasonic wavelength massage for deeper penetration and to oxygenate and renew our cells for best results.

What does a Cold Light treatment do?

It stimulates collagen and elastin production and tissue repair which can reduce and even reverse the effects of aging and damage to skin and other bodily tissues. It does this by enacting cutting-edge protocols that activate the cellular renewal process, while restoring and protecting the surface of the skin, resulting in a significant and yet completely natural looking cosmetic enhacement. The effectiveness of using RED and INFRARED light therapy to stimulate rejuvenation in damaged tissues has been documented in more than 2,500 research papers, and approximately 100 double blind studies.

It is a gentle and natural procedure much like the process of photosynthesis, also known as photo biostimulation, the stimulation of life processes with light. Our system uses both visible RED and INFRARED light energy to stimulate the body’s own regenerative metabolism at the cellular level. By stimulating the body’s tissues to convert light energy into cellular energy (ATP), the treatment uses the energy your cells can use to:

  • Accelerate the production of collagen and elastin
  • Increase cellular permeability, allowing for increased cellular nutrient intake
  • Increase the removal of excess fluid and waste products from the cells
  • Increase the production of macrophage (scavenger) cells for the removal of toxins/excess pigment/scar tissue
  • Increase lymphatic drainage
  • Increase vasculization (blood flow) to the surface of the skin

Are they safe?

Cold Light offers advanced cosmetic rejuvenation utilizing both LIGHT EMITTING DIODE (LED) technology, which has been determined by the FDA to be without any risk. Treatments are completely non-invasive and do not produce any thermal damage or pain. Treatment times vary in duration depending on the needs of the individual client. However, treatments are generally perceived as pleasant and relaxing.s

What is Sapphire Abrasion?

Cold Laser, Lumifacial, Medi Spa, Microdermabrasion, Signature Facial, TreatmentsJoanne FrumanComment

Our epidermis is the outermost layer of our skin. It can suffer immensely after a long dry winter leaving the skin dehydrated which in turn can leave the epidermis with the appearance of superficial fine lines & wrinkles. One very effective way to rid of those nasty lines amongst treating other conditions is Sapphire Abrasion. This is the newest method of exfoliating the skin with microdermabrasion. Sapphire granules cover one side of its unique tip, while the other side is designed to massage and drain lymph. It also stimulates fibroblastic activity, which aids in the tissue repair process. Fibroblasts are present in connective tissue and are capable of forming collagen fibers. The sapphire abrasion is crystal and suction free and uses ultrasonic vibrations to painlessly ablate the outermost layers of the skin. This treatment is non-invasive and is ideal for anyone who has had  reaction to traditional vacuum like microdermabrasion or sensitive skin. The best way to finish this treatment is with some cold light therapy or out Lumifacial!
