HSC are more immediately useful and there have been over 20,000 cord blood transplants treatments done. To collect cord blood, the method most commonly used is much like the procedure done when blood is donated. An estimated eighty types of diseases can be cured with the help of the stem cells in cord blood. A lot of people are now considering various cord blood banks for storing their newborn’s cord blood because of cord blood’s extremely vital role in the treatment of failing and aging organ systems.

Knowing how to effectively utilize advanced modalities in the treatment room has become an essential part of the aesthetic practice. Here’s a glance at micro-needling, what types of skin it benefits, how to integrate it into the treatment room, and how to maximize its results. The process of micro-needling involves using tiny needles to create micro-perforation into the dermo-epidermal junction. Micro-needling is becoming more popular as clients look to more cost-effective alternatives to skin resurfacing that don’t require much downtime. During the treatment, a handheld micro-needling device will be gently rolled over the skin. Talk to clients prior to their micro-needling treatment to manage expectations, educate them on proper pre- and post-care, and outline a treatment plan. As micro-needling and other advanced resurfacing modalities continue to grow in popularity, it will become increasingly important to understand how to work with them, and even combine them with one another and specific ingredients. Diatomaceous earth – a naturally occurring, soft rock with an abrasive feel similar to pumice powder. Pearl powder – finely milled from freshwater pearls, which are rich in minerals and provide antibacterial, detoxification and skin-nourishing properties.
Pumice – a highly porous, very light stone created from lava, it is a more abrasive granular. To further deepen the benefits of these natural exfoliators and customize them to the client’s skin, you might consider blending them with one another, or with other formulas or exfoliating enzymes to create an active scrub.
Blending scrubs with cleansers, enzymes and corrective serums enable you to further tailor it to your client’s skin and the treatment goals. Blend Gentle Jojoba Beads or the Bamboo Scrub with the Skin Brightening Cleanser to support any brightening program.
For deeper brightening support, blend Gentle Jojoba Beads with the Skin Brightening Enzyme to soften and digest unwanted skin, and support a glowing complexion. Buffed may also be mixed with the Naturale Mega Brightening Serum to deliver the natural brightening properties of daisy flower deeper into the skin. Try mixing Buffed with the Skin Refine Gel or Skin Smoothing Gel to soften pores, purify, and improve course texture.
Mandelic Arginine Serum to promote collagen production, and deliver skin-strengthening support from amino acids, antioxidants, and AHAs. Gentle Jojoba Beads may also be blended with the Cherry Jubilee Enzyme to polish and refresh the skin. Buffed takes cleansing to the next level and effectively dissolves surface residue, and provides antibacterial, antifungal and antioxidant support.
Clients may also be sent home with these blending recommendations for home care between treatments. The truth is, a tremendous amount of misinformation surrounds these products and it’s imperative clients know and understand this. While there are certainly exceptions to this, your clients can count on the fact that you, a licensed aesthetician, have taken the time to go through the proper training to earn the right to consult them on their skin. Simple dialogue with your clients can help them understand the level of care you put into your product selections. Many professionals using Rhonda Allison products will highlight the use of cutting-edge science, quality ingredients, choices and customization for all skin types, and the longevity of the products.
Finally, any product that is sold in mass on the internet, in a mainstream store or as an MLM, is going to have some restrictions on the level of active ingredients that may be used. Keep in mind, sometimes it takes them venturing out on their own to test those products and learn for themselves. Retail sales is one of the most profit-driven components of your business, and yet for many aestheticians it is the least. Inventory, organizing, and selling retail are big question marks for most skin care professionals. In your inventory system notate when the product went on the shelf, and if it’s been there too long (well passed its expiration), pull it from the shelf. To preserve the life of your products, keep them out of direct sunlight or other direct lights. Now let’s talk about how to get your products in the hands of your clients without coming across as an overly aggressive salesperson. When you do send clients home with products, be sure to talk to them, not only about the how, why, and when to use, but about the shelf life of their home care as well. With Rhonda Allison products specifically, it is common for colors to shift or separation to occur in many of our formulas. Weather is warming, flowers are beginning to bloom, and bright colors have started to immerge again. Many clients are steering away from invasive treatments and turning to aesthetic professionals to help them achieve the youthful results they are looking for. While they may be used year-round, flower acids, like lotus and hibiscus, are favorites among clients this time of year. Flower acids can be used in tandem with numerous other pro-youth formulas, to create custom results. Organic Herbal Peel – for clients with oiler skin conditions, this is an ideal treatment as the Italian Herbal Peel balances excess oil production, while the Hibiscus Peel stimulates cellular turnover and healing.
White Lotus Peel – a beautiful treatment for brightening, exfoliation, eliminating bacteria, and delivering anti-inflammatory support. To enhance the results, some treatments may be used in combination with other advanced modalities like microdermabrasion. This season, get clients in the springtime mood by making renew and re-youth the focus of your spa. This post will provide a look inside the Skin of Color Peel – a treatment designed specifically to support skin of color and decrease the risk of unwanted side effects such as post inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH). Like the Skin of Color Facial, this specialized peel treatment provides a gentle, yet effective approach to addressing the hard-to-treat issues specifically associated with higher Fitzpatricks. To help control the pigment and support overall brightening, this treatment begins with a cleanse using the Skin Brightening Cleanser. During the peel application the Mint Papaya Enzyme and unique H2O2 Emulsion will soften and digest cells, oxygenate the tissue while loosening surface-trapped debris and toxicity, and continue the brightening and pigmentation control.
Once this combination is removed, the Melanin Suppressant Solution makes a second appearance followed by the Mandelic Arginine Peel to further prevent the formation of damaging radicals. Our goal is to create a dialogue about how ancestry impacts the skin and mitigate concerns surrounding the various challenges and sensitivities associated with skin of any color.
There is often trepidation when it comes to working with skin of varying ancestries in the treatment room for the simple fact that every skin comes with it’s own set of challenges and sensitivities. These were both designed specifically to support skin of color and the sensitivities such as, scarring and post inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH), commonly associated with the skin. This highly targeted treatment addresses the hard-to-treat issues specifically associated with ethnic skin. With skin of color, PIH is a common issue, and thus it’s important to support the skin with skin-building ingredients as well as those that inhibit melanin production. To soften cells and remove cellular buildup, the Derma Peel and Mint Papaya Enzyme are combined, creating a wonderful sensation and aroma clients love. Following the ChronoPeptide A and luscious Milk Mask, the Mandelic Arginine Peel makes a second appearance. To download the step-by-step protocol for Skin of Color Facial click here and for additional information on working with skin of color, see our previous post. Just two decades ago, working with skin of color was unknown territory – and that challenge intrigued me.
Cell layers – Thickness and density of some ethnicities will require special attention to remove epidermal layers. Inflammatory responses – Skins of color have heightened sensitivity to inflammation that may increase susceptibility to post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH). Every ancestry has certain skin challenges specific to it, and this will significantly direct the type of treatment you perform. Black skin – sensitivity to PIH, keloid formation, and pseudofolliculitis barbae (PFB). While every client will have different ingredients that work best with their skin type, there are a few intelligent ingredients that generally work with most skins and produce beautiful results. Epidermal growth factor (EGF) – an essential protein and powerful cell regenerator that supports cell renewal and wound repair. Mandelic acid – this is a safe go-to acid that universally may be used successfully on all skins of color. Daisy flower (bellis perennis) extract – a gentle, yet highly effective natural skin lightener that influences different pathways involved in melanin formation, counteracting age spots and balancing hyperpigmentation. Retinol – a vitamin A derivative that converts to retinoic acid and is a DNA regulator. Melanin suppressants – typically a combination of natural lightening ingredients such as kojic acid, L-arbutin, azelaic acid, L-ascorbic acid. Thermus thermophilus ferment extract – a deep-sea microorganism used to fight free radicals. Zinc oxide – provides natural sun barrier, antimicrobial, antioxidant, and soothing, healing support.
The next blog post will cover two new treatments we’ve created specifically for skin of color.
Taking time to reflect and renew will enable you to start the new year off fully charged and inspired.
Learn a new skill – why not set the goal to learn a new technique, modality or tool in the treatment room?
Do or see something new – this may seem more about personal development, but it inevitably spills over to the professional life as well.
Make time to do what you love – recharging your batteries is absolutely essential to being effective in your professional life. This time of year brings so many opportunities to offer clients some very special treatment. The Unwrap & Glow is a progressive peel designed to deliver glowing, pro-youth results without the downtime. The facial starts with two-step preparation using the Milk Plus Cleanser and the holiday Cherry Cleanser, which will polish the skin and envelop the senses in the tantalizing scent of ripe cherries. To further support the brightening and illuminating properties of the step prior, the Hibiscus Peel will leave the skin radiant, hydrated and rejuvenated.
The treatment begins with the tantalizing Cherry Cleanser which provides a deep cleanse while simultaneously polishing the skin. To awaken the senses following the relaxing massage, whip together the Grape Seed Parfait Mask and Chocolate Antioxidant Mask. Wisp, Bliss, and Enlighten are the three popular shades for lighter Fitzpatrick skin tones.
The mineral crème works well for normal to dry skin because it increases hydration without adding heaviness. For oily skins, the powder is best applied immediately following a daily moisturizer, and Daytime Defense or Sheer Tint Finisher.
Not only does it form differently in different skins, it may also appear in varying degrees of severity.
Regardless, it’s something numerous clients struggle with and may, at times, significantly impact the self esteem.
It begins with understanding how scars form and why; then determining the type of scarring you are working with so that you may create a customized treatment. The potential for scarring occurs when the breakout penetrates the skin deeply, damaging the tissue beneath.
When you know the level of scarring you are able to determine the best course of treatment. When addressing acne scarring, the ultimate goal is to remove surface cells to allow strengthening and corrective ingredients and oxygen to penetrate the skin.
Microdermabrasion – this is very effective in reducing scars as it removes cells of the stratum corneum allowing other corrective and nourishing ingredients to better penetrate the skin. Microneedling – deeper microneedling procedures work well to remodel scar tissue, but caution must be exercised here. Depending on the client’s skin and severity of scarring, a peel may be combined with microdermabrasion. For clients on a program to correct scarring, be sure to integrate epidermal growth factors, peptides, hyaluronic acid, and essential fatty acids into their home care system. Starting with the type of scar, then taking into account the client’s specific skin type, and their overall goal will help shape the type of treatment to use. When trying to deliver results for clients, it can be easy to overlook pre- and post-treatments, making the peel or resurfacing treatment the star of the show. Pigmentation – for clients who may have pigmentation issues, higher Fitzpatricks, or if you are performing a deep peel, using a brightener or tyrosinase inhibitor will help suppress melanin, and may help eliminate post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH), as well as brighten overall skin tone. Acne – antibacterial support prior to treatment will not only help eliminate bacteria, but also the potential for excessive purging that occurs with acne skin. Acne scarring – depending on the build-up underneath skin, performing a pre-treatment will help enhance results, however a more aggressive approach is needed. Aging – the right pre-treatment can help stimulate collagen and elastin, and support healing.
Sensitive skin – for sensitive, rosacea-prone or thinner skin, a pre-treatment will start the building process, help the epidermis layer loosen, increase energy, and provide anti-inflammatory and antibacterial support.
As I mentioned, when performing peels, you are creating an injury to the skin that disrupts the protective barrier resulting in a wound.
Pruritus (itching) – post peel itching is common for many skins, not just sensitive skins.
Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) – this is often caused by picking, so be sure to educate clients about the importance of not picking the skin that is peeling.
Discomfort or pain – this will generally ease after the first 24 hours, however you can support clients with ingredients that will reduce inflammation and provide cooling, soothing relief.
While there are other complications that may occur, ingredients that support healing, and provide anti-inflammatory and soothing support will be important components to any post-care system. Of course there are a variety of factors that come into play here – overall health, stress levels, sun exposure, medications, and the list goes on.
One of our educators, Devin Romero, put it best when he said the pigmentation process resembles that of an assembly line.
First a trigger (such as UV exposure) sends a signal to melanocyte-stimulating hormones that the skin is in need of protection. After tyrosine is signaled, the melanocyte cell receives a message to produce pigmentation (melanin). These melanosomes are then dispersed upward through the granular layer via dendrites to keratinocytes where they form melanin caps, which reduce DNA damage caused by UV exposure. Common triggers that kick start this cycle include: the sun, inflammation, injury, hormonal changes, friction, medications, aggressive skin care products, an even acne (in the form of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation). In healthy conditions, the pigmentation that is produced in response to potential damage will eventually diffuse or fade on its own, but in some cases a permanent discoloration can occur.
Luckily there are a number of ingredients that help support the skin and control hyperpigmentation. Bellis perennis flower (daisy flower) – a gentle, natural brightener derived from daisies.
Arbutin (L) – a natural plant-based derivative of hydroquinone (HQ) with tyrosinase abilities. Kojic acid – derived from Japanese mushrooms, it works to effectively inhibit melanin synthesis. Lactic acid (L) – this keratoyltic AHA has natural brightening abilities, works to smooth skin and improve texture. Azelaic acid – a grain- and yeast-derived compound, it helps normalize disordered cell growth, provides antioxidant and anti-inflammatory support, and helps effectively treat acne-related post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Some products to turn to include, the Skin Brightening Cleanser, Brightening Scrub, Brightening Pigment Lotion, Mandelic Arginine Serum, ChronoPeptide A, Naturale Mega Brightening Serum, Skin Brightening Gel, and Daytime Defense SPF 30. In the last post, we covered some of the basics of setting up an Instagram account, and the ins and outs of etiquette on the platform. Instagram is a tremendous platform for building your brand awareness and engaging your customers and loyal fans. In the last post, we covered some of the basics of setting up an Instagram account, and the ins and outs of etiquette on the platform. On Instagramall photos become square so keep that in mind when snapping photos, particularly if you are not taking a photo within the app.
Hashtags – using multiple hashtags allows you to reach a broader audience and gain new followers, however when used in excess they can make the post appear messy. Geotagging, whether at your business, or an off-property event, is another great way for people to find your account. Just as users can use hashtags and geotags to find you, you can do the same to connect with or find current and potential customers in your area. While you don’t have to follow everyone that follows your business, always take the time to interact via replies to comments, likes, etc. Whatever the reason, there are a few best practices you can implement to help grow your follower count and be sure you are keeping them engaged.
If you haven’t set up your account yet, you are in a great position to set a solid foundation to work from.
If using a hashtag for people to submit photos, always ask via a comment on the photo to make sure it’s ok for you to re-share it. Freezing peptides are also known as neurotransmitter peptides and the primary function is to inhibit acetylcholine at the neuromuscular junction. Argireline (acetyl hexapeptide 8) – this peptide effects muscle contraction in the pre-synaptic membrane. Inyline (acetyl hexapeptide 30) – this is a fairly new peptide that specifically targets wrinkle expression through a post-synaptic approach, which means it blocks muscle-specific kinase. Dipeptide Diaminobutyroyl Benzylamide Diacetate – a small peptide that mimics the polypeptide found in the venom of the Temple Viper.
With these freezing peptides, the message to contract becomes unclear, therefore the action of muscle contraction is weakened and the wrinkle is not formed.
They can be found in our Eye Revitalizer, Amino Peptide Serum, Peptide 38, and RA for Men Mineral Freeze.
We will start posting some of these questions on the blog, as they can help many of you no matter where you may be in your practice.
The liver represents another source of embryologically related tissue that has been transdifferentiated into insulin-expressing cells. In support of stem cell research, many groups have pointed to this as a ready source of stem cells that do not need aborted fetuses. It is the blood that remains in the umbilical cord and placenta following birth and after the cutting cord. But, according to CELS (2007), “The small volume of cord blood (typically 75-100ml) means that the number of HSCs is low and the use of cord blood HSC is therefore limited to children under 40kg. In response to the potential for cord blood transplants to treat diseases of the blood and immune systems, both the private cord blood bank and the public one have developed since the mid to late 1990s. A technician utilizes a needle to withdraw the blood from the cord, and it is then stored in a blood bag.
Apart from time-honored traditions like eating unhealthy food, being silly and watching a lot of bad TV, slumber parties give children a chance to create memories with friends in a way that isna€™t possible on play dates after school.But when your child has type 1 diabetes, the idea of having her or him attend a slumber party can be nerve-wracking. The information and recipes on this site, although as accurate and timely as feasibly possible, should not be considered as medical advice, nor as a substitute for the same. The session touched on the science behind these treatments, optimal skin types to receive them, achievable outcomes, and how to incorporate them into your aesthetic practice. But, as with any resurfacing procedure, proper training and precautions must be taken before introducing the treatment to clients. You want to be careful not to bring the skin to the point of bleeding, rather keep the stimulation at the superficial level. Therapy E Serum and Hyaluronic Serum may also be applied during the procedure to deliver hydration to the tissue, and reduce inflammation created from the needling. As a rule of thumb, clients will avoid waxing or resurfacing treatments a couple of weeks leading up to the procedure. This knowledge will enable you to enhance the results and recovery time, not to mention set your practice a part. We know and love scrubs for their exfoliating, softening, and deep-cleaning properties, but by blending them with other formulations, you can create customized scrubs designed to support client’s specific skin needs.
It starts with identifying the outcome you wish to achieve, understanding how ingredients synergize, and using a quality base scrub.
Primary forms of granules used in scrubs include pumice, jojoba beads, diatomaceous earth, pearl powder, and bamboo, and each works with skin differently. They will naturally allow the oil to melt into the skin to further soften sebum and skin cells. The powder is derived from ground bamboo stems – it works for both facial and body scrubs. The Bamboo Scrub uses bamboo (of course) as well as pearl powder and jojoba esters to hydrate, replenish, and stimulate the skin while providing antimicrobial and antiseptic properties.
On its own it will offer a great cleanse, but to deepen the cleanse blend Buffed with the Beta Green Tea Cleanser.
The most important thing is to know the client’s skin and what will best produce the desired outcome, and always opt for natural, tried-and-true, quality ingredients. Yes, these mass-marketed sensations that promise the world in a bottle, but really only deliver ho-hum results at best, and a mess to clean up at worse, have challenged skin care professionals since the beginning of the profession. Chances are your clients have inquired about a Rodan and Fields, Arbonne, or Nerium product. For one, representatives who sell them are not required to undergo any professional skin care training.
You understand what makes their skin unique and how different ingredients are either going to work in harmony with their skin or work against it. For instance, you might say something like, “I have researched and selected my retail products very carefully. As well as the fact that they were developed by a licensed aesthetician with a background in cosmeceuticals.
Remember, fad buying and flavors of the month will always exist, and women will always have their eye out for the next thing that promises to turn back the hands of time. Inevitably, they often do come back with a half empty jar of a product that cost several hundred dollars to show you the culprit behind an undesirable outcome. The best place to start is by analyzing and detecting patterns in the types of clients you service. For instance, if you have an acne care home system, group a cleanser, corrective, and skin-building and protection formula together. Be sure the area is dust free as this will tend to make clients think the products have been sitting for a while and may not be fresh. This will come naturally following a treatment as you may recommend a home care system to enhance and maintain the desired results.
It has to do with the choice of natural ingredients used to elicit color or not using a lot of stabilizers, sometimes it is due to the actives themselves and how they begin to shift over time.
With the right blend of flower and other rejuvenating acids, bright, healthy, smooth, and firm skin may be achieved without the down time that comes with invasive treatments. These non-irritating, yet powerful rejuvenators provide potent re-youth and brightening benefits, protect from free radicals, deliver hydration and antioxidant support. The Maui Peel, Mandelic Arginine Peel, and Hibiscus Peel stimulate collagen production, hydrate, and reduces the appearance of fine line and wrinkles.
The unique combination of rejuvenating flower and wine acids in the Lotus Peel, Apple Wine Peel, and the Vitamin A+ Peptide Peel works to brighten, tighten, and protect the skin from free-radical damage.
Typically enzymes and acids used prior to a microdermabrasion treatment will aid in loosening the cells of the stratum corneum to complete the lifting process, and more effectively smooth and polish the skin. Remember to always use caution and assess the client’s skin before performing any advanced modalities, especially in tandem with other rejuvenating treatments. And where this is most common is in working with skins of varying ancestries simply because every skin comes with it’s own set of challenges and sensitivities. However, it’s also all the more reason to seek the proper training to overcome the fear.
To help skincare professionals understand how ancestry impacts the skin, and how to safely and effectively work with all skins to create optimum results. It will brighten and even the skin ton, smooth and soften rough texture, and improve acne conditions. This is followed by a combination of the Cell Conditioner and Melanin Suppressant Solution as a pre-peel to help prevent PIH, stimulate collagen production, and deliver anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial support.
This will stimulate desquamation, smooth the skin, reduce fine lines and uneven pigmentation, and leave the skin absolutely radiant. But being adept in working with skin of any color is a tremendous asset – and that is why we decided to make 2016 the year of colour! This post will cover some of the key components of the Skin of Colour Facial and why certain ingredients were selected. It offers a gentle, yet effective enzymatic exfoliation while infusing the skin with nourishing, corrective support. That is why this treatment begins with a nourishing cleanse using a combination of the Milk Plus and Melanin Suppressant Solution, followed by the Cell Conditioner. This time, however, it is layered with growth factors (via the Growth Factor Serum Plus), Daytime Defense SPF30, and Hydra Complex.
Progressive treatments and corrective facials are generally the best place to start, particularly if there is scarring or hyperpigmentation. Derived from almonds, this antiseptic rejuvenating acid has lightening and restorative properties. It is a relatively safe, low-risk acid, as it is self-neutralizing and produces a drying and lifting effect.
It assists in the synthesis of collagen, aids in the formation of blood vessels and encourages healthy cell formation.
Look to the Rhonda Allison Melanin Suppressant Solution to brighten the skin, and provide antibacterial and antioxidant support, while minimizing PIH during the peel.
While this truly is a personal journey for every individual, there are a few things you might consider incorporating that that can help you have a stand out year – personally and professionally.
You might seek out educational webinars (the ASCP is a good resource for these), industry conferences like Face & Body or IECSC, continued education courses, or training sessions in your local area (often these are provided by product manufacturers).
Your network can be large or small, but it will only be effective if you work to strengthening it.
New experiences help us grow, widen our views, or even pick up new approaches to something.
And we know one thing that might help fulfill all of the above mentioned…the RA Symposium.
Though the season is filled with merriment and joy, it’s also not without its stresses. It features the limited edition Cherry Cleanser, a triple pre-peel and the illuminating Hibiscus Peel.
Following the prep, a three-step process using the Cell Conditioner, Liquid Enzyme Peel and Melanin Suppressant Solution will start the rejuvenation process and pave the way for the Hibiscus Peel that follows. It offers relaxation, soothing support, and hot and cold therapy sensations, and will leave the skin absolutely radiant. During the glimmering enzyme polish step, the Liquid Enzyme Peel and Skin Brightening Enzyme will brighten the skin, soften and digest cells, and aid in the suppression of melanin.
Start with the Mandelic Arginine Peel gently massaged into the skin to start the gentle rejuvenation and cellular repair. As such, we wanted to provide some tips and best practices for color matching and application, so you can give your clients the gift of glowing, radiant skin this season.
We recommend inquiring about the client’s ancestry, as well as analyzing their pigment. Deciding whether the crème or the powder is right for your client is a matter of hydration level in the skin. It also creates a beautiful, vibrant glow when applied with our specialized brush in a circular motion while gently pressing.
With proper shade selection and application, they will be hooked on the results and the benefits it provides. There may be depressed scars, also known as pits, or they may take the shape of raised scars known as hypertrophic.
For instance, those who have inflammatory acne (cyst and nodules) and particularly if they delay treatment, or if the individual picks or squeezes the acne, may experience scarring after the acne clears. However, aesthetic professionals also have a number of non-invasive tools at their disposal to help clients smooth the scarring.
Overall, modalities that work to smooth acne-scarred skin in the treatment room include peels, micro-needling, and microdermabrasion. The peel is done after the microdermabrasion, for better absorption of the acid and deeper exfoliation.
Pre- and post-treatments absolutely impact results, however, and should be a part of every peel. This is an opportunity to create a truly custom treatment based on your client’s skin care needs and desired results. Supporting the skin through the trauma will ensure proper healing and reduce the probability of complications. Hydrocortisone and willow herb, a natural cortisone, will help soothe and calm the skin during the peeling process.
If clients are particularly prone to PIH, send them home with epidermal growth factors to support the healing and repair process. However, you must be able to read the client’s skin and take into account the type of treatment to customize a post-treatment plan specific to their needs. DNA damage to the skin cells, caused by UV exposure, hormonal changes, certain medications, and other health issues, result in the steady distribution of melanin.
Since it is typically more stable and less sensitizing than HQ it’s a great alternative for those with sensitivities. The goal is to maintain optimum health, or restore it to optimum health so it may properly control pigmentation. In this post, I’ll go over best practices for hashtag usage, photos, and making yourself more discoverable. Some phones have a square photo setting, but if you need to do some post editing, there are free tools available for resizing the image. Start to build a relationship with them by liking their photos as a way to introduce your brand. If not, you may have at least been debating setting up an account for no other reason than to promote how amazing your business is. In this two-part series I’ll cover a best practices, tips for gaining more followers, and how to keep followers engaged. In other words, these peptides inhibit muscle contraction, which is beneficial when correcting the appearance of mimic wrinkles, which may become deeper over time. It is one of the several neurotransmitters in the automatic nervous system that aids muscle contraction.
In other words it decreases excessive neurotransmitter release and overproduction of catechomlomines, which are derived from tyrosine. Using the example above, this would be like you covering your ears while someone is talking to you. This is a tri-peptide that targets neuromuscular activity to smooth existing lines and wrinkles, and prevent future ones from appearing. Diabetes is a degenerative disease that causes a person to have higher than normal blood sugar as a result of the body not producing enough insulin (Type 1) or sometimes because the cells won’t respond to the insulin being produced (Type 2).
Parents are frequently turning to freezing their child’s umbilical cord blood stem cells, so they can use them later in life.
Regenerative medicine incorporates the replacement or repair of a damaged organ which has been damaged because of aging, disease or some other congenital problems. Latest research proves that it can also be used to cure diseases such as; different types of cancers, metabolic disorders, blood disorders including thalassemia, bone marrow failure syndromes for example aplastic anemia and other immune system deficiencies. Also, the studies have also shown positive effect on cardiovascular injuries and in the treatment of brain injury. Actually, it is estimated that around one in every three Americans can benefit from regenerative medicine. Bookshester, a licensed clinical psychologist with over 25 years of experience, is based in Chicago, Illinois. To begin, you will want to prepare the skin with a lactic acid (L) or salicylic acid-based cleanser, such as the Beta Green Tea Cleanser or Maui Cleanser, to remove surface build up and bacteria.
Jojoba beads can be found in the Gentle Jojoba Beads, which provides an emulsifying, lathering cleanse while delivering pure oil hydration and eliminating pore build-up. It has hydrating, replenishing and stimulating properties that boost the effects of brightening and cleansing ingredients. When acne, aging, dehydration, and hyperpigmentation occur for different reasons in different skin types, these products simply can’t be expected to live up to their promises. They have to make these less active so that anyone can simply open the package and start using it without any sort of guidance by a skin care professional.
Skin care is an emotionally driven purchase – most want to look better, younger, fast. What are the common skin challenges they have and what are their expectations for their skin? Too sparse of a display may convey these are the last few stragglers that couldn’t sell and too many of one item may seem like no one is buying it!
Or you might group by theme, such as all green tea-based products or a special summer skin care regimen together. But older product that has clearly outlived its shelf life, particularly if it is changed in appearance will just psychologically cause the client to feel as if there is a problem. We are in such a high-touch industry and clients want to see, touch, smell, and feel a product before they commit to buying.
In other instances, you might offer a quick skin assessment then offer a customized system or educate clients on specific ingredients, what they do and why they may be effective for their particular skin. The Melanin Suppressant Solution brighten, while Seam Gems and Omega 6 EFA support the rebuild of healthy, strong cells. Using them after will allow for lifting of cells that still adhere, prompting the enzyme or acid to work harder and enhance the rejuvenation. After all dexterity in the treatment room is ultimately what will help set your practice apart. Send clients home with care instructions and some skin-building formulas like the Hyaluronic Serum, MVC Serum, and Daytime Defense SPF30. This combination works to safely prep the skin, deliver antioxidant support, inhibit melanin production, and stimulate collagen activity. Following the enzymatic exfoliation, the Mandelic Arginine Peel will further prevent the formation of damaging radicals. Growth factors are essential to wound healing and the rebuilding process, and the Daytime Defense SPF30 will protect the beautiful work you just did. Progressive peelings and corrective facials are best to start with, and use extreme caution with microdermabrasion. We offer a number of webinars, seminars at conferences, our 90 Day Live series, and in 2016 we’re also introducing our RA Symposium. You might even consider adding an area of specialization, such as working with men or skin of color or oncology patients.
You might consider traveling to a foreign destination, reading a book outside of your norm, shadowing another aesthetician who operates in a different area or who specializes in different modality than you, attending a different conference, the list goes on.
That might be through meditation, yoga, being in nature, or simply reading a book – whatever it is that brings you bliss.
There will be plenty of opportunities for learning new skills, strengthening your network, and you will most certainly be a part of a new experience (not to mention being surrounded by breathtaking nature). On top of it all, there is often a near endless list of parties and gatherings to attend over the course of the month.
Using the flavors of the season, you can give your clients a bit of holiday decadence, and indulge the skin and the senses…without the calories. At this point the cold and hot therapy come in with chilled ice globes gently rolled over the skin, followed by a hot compress wrapped around the face and neck. Getting a clear picture of what influences their skin tone is key, as the pigments in the RA Illuma Colour will blend with the individual’s tone to create a true color match.
This process stimulates collagen production, however if too little or too much is produced, a scar will form. In most cases it will require creating a treatment plan, one that involves several treatments and proper home care in between.
Note this requires very specific training and caution is advised when combining with acids. Before they begin a painting, they prime the canvas, and once they’ve finished they seal it to preserve their masterpiece. Ingredient suggestions: bellis perennis flower, arbutin (L), kojic acid, and lactic acid (L).

The proper pre- and post-care treatment will be essential to creating the best possible outcome and that will keep your clients coming back for more. These, as you may know, produce melanin – an action that occurs in the granular layer. As excess melanin is produced, and dispersing of these pigments is interrupted, hyperpigmentation forms.
Keep in mind, though Instagram allows Facebook sharing, currently it’s only to personal accounts.
This will ensure you keep your photo description short, clean and concise, while still benefitting from the search benefits that come with hashtags. If you can have someone else snap a photo of you and client, always opt for that over the selfie. Since freezing peptides suppress acetylcholine, they produce a similar effect as Botox and other dermal fillers. As one of our educators put it, this would be like you covering your mouth as you were speaking to someone else. To help answer these and get a dialogue going we created a group on Facebook – the Rhonda Allison Educational Forum.
The importance of cord blood is new breakthrough in medical science and many people are unaware about this. Placenta prevents many harmful substances from entering and it acts as a store of energy and blood transfer for the developing embryo or fetus. Umbilical cord blood of your baby is a valuable source of stem cells and these stem cells are genetically unique to your baby and family.
After the collection of cord blood, it is and stored in a public or private cord blood bank in case of future need. The other members of the family can also get benefits of cord blood storage, as organ transplants by close relatives tend to be more successful compared to unrelated donor transplants. Bookshester, MA, PsyD, a licensed clinical psychologist with expertise in treating the emotional and developmental issues associated with type 1 diabetes, encourages this social experience, provided certain criteria are met."Having type 1 diabetes requires a specific care program that the host parents need to be comfortable addressing.
A second cleanse with a very gentle scrub or liquefying enzyme, like the Derma Peel, may also be performed to ensure a clean surface to work from.

Cord blood is the blood found inside the placenta and the umbilical cord after the birth of a baby.
The blood that passed to fetus through placenta is highly charged with oxygen to keep the fetus alive and well without a direct air source.
For personal use, the cost to collect and store this blood in a private bank is typically rather expensive and it is about $2,000 US Dollars (USD) for collection and $125 USD annually to store it privately. Regenerative medicine also permits the scientists to grow artificial organs in the laboratory and then place them inside the body of the patient.

After the birth of baby, the umbilical cord is severed and either removed or falls off, leaving a small scar which is properly known as the umbilicus. In the stem cell therapy, a person’s own stem cells are a very important part as their own stem cells can be absorbed back into their bodies without the risk of rejection. For patients who need organ replacement and are unable to find one due to acute shortage of organ donors, this treatment can be prove very beneficial. If your client’s skin is especially dry, you may also use the Infuse 7 for deeper hydration.
The blood is collected from the umbilical cord mainly for the presence of stem cells and other hematopoietic cells, which are vital for the treatment of blood and other genetic disorders. Also, they have a higher chance of matching family members than stem cells from bone marrow. Cord blood banking is very important for regenerative medicine because it contains stem cells, which can be used to treat diseases for example; brain injury, diabetes and in the treatment of cardiovascular problems.
