Laser Hair Removal

Spring is here! I hope you are enjoying the buds on the trees and the flowers peeking up through the mulch. Spring is a time of renewal and it’s a great time to think about summer! Pools, boats, beaches and bathing suits. Sunglasses, sunhats, SPF and shaving. Wait, shaving? Well, toss your razors and depilatories because laser hair removal is your new best friend and we have the right ones to treat everyone – men, women, fair skin, dark skin and even tanned skin! This is the best time to get your treatments, as it takes around 5-8 sessions to see the best results. Our licensed aestheticians at Phases Skincare and Laser Center have extensive knowledge about how to best treat ALL skins, how to prep before treatments and what to expect afterwards. Facial areas such as upper lip, chin, beard and neck can be treated every 4 weeks. Body areas such as bikini line, underarms, legs and backs can be treated every 6 weeks.

In a hurry? No worry – we have a laser that can treat a men’s back in around 10 minutes! Don’t go another summer wishing you had started this year, feel confident all year long having treated yourself to the beauty of laser hair removal.

Latisse for baldness?

Approved by the FDA in 2008 for eyelash growth, our friends at Allergan will begin testing LATISSE for growing hair on the scalp. The clinical trial will determine if LATISSE is effective for male and female pattern baldness, types of alopecia. If LATISSE proves effective, it is reported that it would most likely be sold as a cream that could be applied to the scalp. We have no idea what that might cost but it is a potential treatment for many of our patients, male and female, who experience hair loss. Of course, it could be many years before the product actually makes it to the market. Stay tuned.

Could You Use a Little Lift?

As we age, the skin of our face and neck has a tendency to begin to show the effects of gravity. Collagen production is decreased, resulting in sagging skin. Some of us experience a lowered brow line or sagging skin on the eyelids, which makes our eyes look partially closed and makes us just look tired or older. Our neck may begin to sag below the jaw line and chin. Sometimes these areas need a little lift, but are not severe enough to require surgery.

Ultherapy™ is the latest technology to help firm and tighten skin by stimulating the body’s own process of building collagen, gradually and naturally, from the inside out. A good candidate for Ultherapy is someone whose skin has relaxed to the point of looking less firm. While it is not a replacement for surgery, Ultherapy does offer help to those who are showing signs of aging, but are not yet ready for surgery, by using sound wave technology with no downtime.

With just one treatment, the process of rebuilding collagen begins. The full effect appears over the course of two to three months. Some patients will benefit from more than one treatment. In an FDA clinical trial, 9 out of 10 patients had a noticeable, significant lift of the brow line, which resulted in a more open, youthful look to the eyes. Other areas of the face and neck were improved as well.

If you believe you could use a little lift, call 317-848-8101 today for a consultation.
New Year’s Resolutions for a New You

Most of us usually make a few New Year’s resolutions. We have a few skin care resolutions we suggest you consider adding to your list this year. Your skin is the largest organ of your body and you need to take care of it. Here are a few resolutions that will help you do just that.

  • Resolve to cleanse your skin well daily. We have several excellent cleansers available that are suited to your particular skin type. Check with your aesthetician about which one would work best for you.

  • Resolve to exfoliate regularly. Our Celebrasion Cloth is great for exfoliating the body in the shower, especially the elbows and feet. For a more effective exfoliation, especially of the face, the Clarisonic Pro is an excellent tool to add to your skin care regimen.

  • Resolve to moisturize. Everyone needs a moisturizer, even those who believe they have oily skin. You can jump start hydrating your skin with a Purigenex Mask at Phases.

  • Resolve to use sunscreen every day. Many people forget they need sunscreen winter and summer. The sun is lower in the sky in winter and the reflection off the snow can easily cause sun damage with repeated and prolonged exposure. We have several great sunscreen products for your regular use. We also recommend you keep a Colorescience Perfectly Clear SPF50 in your purse for touch-ups throughout the day. Remember your sunscreen does not last all day!

Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas

We have put together two gift ideas for you for Valentine’s Day.

Purchase a gift set containing a Vivité Exfoliating Cleanser and a Foaming Lotion. Regularly $107, just $60 while supplies last.

A Phases™ gift card is perfect for everyone on your list: mom, dad, daughter or friend. Available in any denomination, gift cards are great for services or products.

Introducing AmbreBlends

Phases is happy to introduce to you a new product line, AmbreBlends. All of the products are made by hand and can be worn by men or women. We carry body creams, roll-on scent and candles. Ambre Essence is contained in each product. It integrates with the body’s chemistry and is activated by body heat to produce an original aroma for each person who wears them.
