Rejuvapen: Micro Needling treatment that treats fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, burns, stretch marks, and more

Rejuvapen: Micro Needling treatment that treats fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, burns, stretch marks, and more

RejuvapenLet Momma get your skin texture and color improved with a treatment of a skin chemical peel or the use of a technology called REJUVAPEN.

The Rejuvapen Micro Needling stimulates the skins natural healing which increases the production of collagen and elastin in the skin. The normal healing response begins the moment of tissue injury by the perforations of the micro needles. Micro Needling treats fine lines and wrinkles, acne scarring, surgical scarring, burns, stretch marks, and firms and tightens the skin. There is minimal downtime. Rejuvapen Micro Needling does require topical numbing cream 45 minutes to one hour before treatment.

Momma will numb your face or neck with a topical numbing cream and then clean and start procedure. The procedure itself takes about 10 minutes. Then stem cells or healing products will be applied to your skin for collagen stimulation or healing. You’ll then return for a mild peel/scrub of the first layer of epidermis one week after your initial procedure or (if you’re too busy) Momma will provide an at-home program!  The downtime is 2-5 days and includes hydrating and sunscreen aftercare. Momma recommends our hydrating products from Image Skincare which are paraben-free and smell like delicious oranges. This treatment improves sun spots, acne scars, texture issues, pore tightening, reduces stretch mark lines and helps tighten skin. The company recommends two to three treatments one month apart. Why? You’ll want your skin cells to remodel and it takes 30 days to remodel after a procedure so you get the maximum benefit from procedure.

Mommas offers Exilis for non surgical skin tightening & collagen turnover for decreasing wrinkles, body fat contouring and skin tightening

ExilisCome see our new treatments of skin tightening, decreasing fat in love handles, tightening skin around the knees, tightening skin on arms, decreasing fat in abdomen, decreasing fat in unwanted areas all over body, upper face and lower face, as well as skin tightening and decreasing wrinkles on the face.

 

EXILIS ELITE  and Exilis Protege.This treatment is a radio frequency and heat combination treatment with energy that penetrates through skin. One machine does skin tightening,one does fat treatment . It is timed and each person’s heat tolerance is different as we work with the client in deciding heat levels. It is very tolerable and some think it feels like a hot stone massage! The procedure requires no downtime, it takes 12-14 minutes on eyes, 30 minutes on face, and 30 minutes neck, abdomen and other areas of body require 30 minutes as well. There is no need for any numbing and you can do during lunch and go back to work!  This procedure works extremely well on thinner skin areas such as eyes and usually require one to two treatments on eyes depending on skin and static lines that are present. The face requires two to three treatments and all treatments should be done 20 -30 days apart for maximum benefit. Need a lunch break lift?  Consider pairing a face or eye treatment and get a mini face like lift of skin and a permanent improvement in collagen remodeling. This treatment is perfect after you have rejuvapen or a peel for skin and texture improvement. 

Exilis Elite

EXILIS ELITE BRAIN TWO: This brain functions well with a higher heat and a different head and nozzle to heat up to a higher temperature with cooling infusion on top to penetrate into different depths of fat in body areas such as abdomen,arms,legs, buttocks, thighs, and neck. The heat and cooling mechanism drives radio frequency and heat into fat and shrinks the fat cells so your body’s natural functions can eliminate the fat. We recommend 8-10 glasses of water the day of procedure to flush out fat, work out or endermology treatment the day of or after, followed with decreased fat intake and an exercise routine or walking and massaging areas completed. We have a great certified nutritionist named Tamara Renee who is assisting Momma in doing the body treatments as this area is her expertise. She can assist with nutrition expertise and help with diet modification, too.

What is Osteoporosis?

Osteoporosis is a skeletal disorder that is a loss of bone osteoid that reduces the bones integrity. This means that the bone isn’t as strong as it used to be! In the U.S. alone osteoporosis causes 2 million fractures annually!  Fractures that occur can be in your spine called vertebral fractures, hip fractures, and pelvic fractures!  Sometimes osteoporosis is asymptomatic, meaning, you don’t have symptoms, it may present with back ache, vertebral fracture, or  loss of height.

What kind of peel is good for you?

What kind of peel is good for you?

Let’s look at what each chemical does for peeling and decide what you the client need. Alpha hydroxy acids (AHA) were the first acids used for peels. They are from fruits and these fruits are (malic) apples, glycolic which is sugarcane, tartaric (grapes), citric (citrus), mandelic (almonds), lactic (milk) and phytic (rice) acids. I bet you didn’t know that chemical peels contained natural fruits and things in our ordinary life.
