Micronutrient Testing

 

Following the collection of a small blood sample, the Health and Skin Center of Miami sends the sample for a comprehensive micronutrient analysis from SpectraCell Laboratories in Houston, TX. This assessment identifies changes in the intracellular nutrition status as well as levels of 34 vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and antioxidants important to aging and skin health.The advanced testing can identify micronutrient deficiencies that may contribute to low energy, arthritis, migraines, chronic fatigue, weight gain, fibromyalgia, allergies, and risk of cancer or dementia. Sophisticated tests analyses identify patterns of poor absorption, metabolic imbalance, chronic illness, aging, and lifestyle considerations that may affect nutritional status.
.Professionals at the Health and Skin Center interpret the report and identify simple lifestyle changes that may drastically improve your health, energy levels, and skin appearance.

Genetic Telomere Testing

Genes play an essential role in skin health, the aging process, and chronic disease. At the Health and Skin Center of Miami, we believe that knowledge about genetic risk factors can empower clients to make important lifestyle changes and identify individualized treatment solutions that are best for them. Through the SpectraCell genetic laboratory, we offer an advanced telomere testing service. Telomeres are small sections or “caps” on the ends of each chromosome within your cells. When cells replicate, the telomeres prevent chromosomes from fraying and altering genetic material. As cells age, telomeres become progressively shorter. Eventually, significantly shortened telomeres prevent the cell from replicating, leading to cell death. Telomere length is thought to be an important index of the aging process. The SpectraCell laboratory offers the first commercially available genetic test for telomere length, making it a pioneer in the field of genetic aging. Knowing telomere length provides an indication of your true biological age, which may be significantly shorter or longer than your chronological age. Based on your telomere length results, we can guide you toward changes that reduce oxidative damage and slow the rate of telomere shortening.

We provide this service free of charge before performing all treatments

Our 10-Step Skin Analysis is a comprehensive service that assesses the needs of your skin and prescribes personalize treatment to give you the youthful glow you desire. The 10—step skin analysis travels the skin, surveying every inch top gather all the information necessary to provide you with the best solution for you. The 10-Step skin analysis is comprised of the following steps:

  1.  A thorough cleansing is completed as the first part of the process.
  2.  The second step allows us to accurately asses the state of your skin. Using a Skin Scope Analyzer we can assess skin pigmentation irregularities such as those caused by sun damage, age spots, or Melasma, as well as those caused by the aging process, dehydration, and cellular build up. The skin scope analyzer produces results within 60 seconds.
  3.  Next we will access the moisture in your skin using a tool called a Digital Skin Moisture Meter. The latest in bioelectric impedance analysis (BIA) technology, the Digital Skin Moisture Meter provides an accurate reading with every use.
  4.  We then measure your skin’s elasticity, determining the delta between your skin’s firmness. As we age, our skin’s elasticity naturally changes. Health and Skin Center Services will take the measurement into account as part of your overall assessment.
  5.  Health and Skin Center Services will also assess your skin’s sensitivity or Allodynia using different stimulants, such as touch, hot, and cold.
  6.  We will review the texture of your skin, assessing the properties such as the size and depth of the pores, residual scars, and other variables. A Digital Slim Auto-Focus skin Microscope will magnify the surface of your skin to 400x. This magnification allows us to see and take pictures of your skin to review and include in your chart.
  7.  We will determine the presence of capillary vascular lesions, a discrepancy in the skin that is similar to a birthmark but is not always present at birth.
  8.  Health and Skin Center Services will determine the level of oils and fatty substances in your skin (also know as sebaceous activity). This will allow us to assess your skin type: dry, oily, or a combination.
  9.  We will assess your skin thickness in relationship to your age and extracurricular interests such as smoking. This relational assessment is completed based upon body site.

Collagen Induction Therapy Micro-Needling Treatment

 90 Minutes-$145

rsz_1rsz_microneedleheadjpg

Micro Needling is a process that involves making micro-perforations into the upper dermis to shift the skin’s natural repair mechanism into high gear. The process induces the product of collagen and elastin. As the collagen and elastin work to repair the tiny perforations, the skin is rejuvenated. This process represents a natural skin restoration remedy. The result: The skin becomes firmer and regains more elasticity, fine lines and wrinkles are visibly reduced, pores become finer, and circulation is stimulated. The skin, as a whole, benefits from this natural process.

Our treatment begins with our signature 10-Step Skin Analysis and includes the following steps:

  • An invigorating cleansing of the skin with a Clarisonic brush and the skin cleanser for your skin type;

Key ingredients:

30% Pure Glycolic Acid

Apollo-Tripollar

APOLLO

TriPollar is a 3rd generation radio-frequency (RF) technology for non-invasive facial and body contouring. It generates the RF current between 3 or more electrodes and focuses the energy to the treatment area only. As a result, TriPollar RF delivers immediate and long-term skin tightening and rejuvenation, fat reduction and body contouring as well as cellulite reduction.

How TriPollar Works

TriPollar technology painlessly delivers focused and optimal radio-frequency (RF) energy to the skin surface and to subcutaneous fat layers. Controlled energy is delivered via three or more electrodes and limited to the treatment area. This focused delivery results in immediate visible results. For improved results it is recommended to undergo a series of treatments.

TriPollar allows practitioners to choose between body and/or facial treatments. Targeted facial treatment regenerates collagen fibers in the dermis layer. Targeted body treatments shrink fat cells in the hypodermis layer and accelerate collagen regeneration.

Superior 3rd Generation Technology

Since both 1st generation mono-polar and 2nd generation bi-polar RF technologies are not focused, they usually require much higher energy to achieve results which heats the skin that is near the electrodes. This causes pain and a higher risk of burns and skin damage. In addition, these older technologies require cooling mechanisms to mitigate risks, which result in less efficient heating of the skin layers.

TriPollar 3rd generation RF technology has a unique configuration of sophisticated control algorithms that prevents overheating and eliminates the need for skin and applicator cooling.

This means safer, more efficient continuous heating, shorter treatment duration and fewer treatment sessions. Because of the relatively low power needed to perform Tripollar treatments, procedure is painless and pleasant.

Treat Delicate Areas

TriPollar technology enables treatment of fine lines and very delicate areas of the face without causing damage or pain. These include areas around the lips (peri oral) and around the eyes (peri orbital).

Collagen Regeneration

The elastic fibers of the skin, collagen and elastin, are produced by fibroblasts. As they are heated, they contract and collagen strands are pulled closer resulting in immediately tightened skin. The deep heating effect in turn accelerates the fat cell metabolism to augment collagen regeneration over the full treatment course. The desired result: tighter, younger looking skin immediately and long-term skin remodeling.

Fat Reduction

Heating the fat cells accelerates metabolism and causes them to shrink. The rise in temperature forces fat cells to secrete fatty acids (liquid fat), which are disposed via the blood and lymph system.The desired result: fat and circumference reduction and minimized cellulite appearance.

Bio-Therapeutic LED Phototherapy Light

bt-accent_LED_main

rsz_lightstim3LightstimPROFessional

 

Just like plants, our skin and other body tissues have the ability to absorb light and convert it into energy. While plants can safely absorb light from the sun, the sun emits harmful UV rays that can do more damage to our skin than good. We use LED light therapy during our Signature Facial Makeover to deliver light energy in a similar way plants absorb light energy from the sun. LightStim emits UV-free, beneficial light rays that energize cells and stimulate the body’s natural process to build new proteins and regenerate cells. LightStim product uses different wavelengths, or colors, of light. When this beneficial light is applied directly to the skin it helps to increase collagen and elastin production, reduce inflammation, speed healing, increase circulation, and destroy acne bacteria.
