MICROCHANNELING REJUVENATION – The next big thing in skincare.

MICROCHANNELING REJUVENATION –  The next big thing in skincare.

Next time you have a spa visit it will be worth your while to check out MicroChanneling Rejuvenation treatments.  I’m a huge fan and feel this is the next big thing in professional skincare. That’s because it’s minimally invasive and provides dramatic results which have been scientifically supported.  Your skin will look instantly better, plumper, smoother, healthier and more radiant. Check out this list of benefits you get from MicroChanneling Rejuvenation:

  1. Reduces Fine Lines & Wrinkles:
    MicroChanneling Rejuvenation breaks up irregular cross linked collagen fibers that often results in wrinkles and that thick, dull, leathery look so many of us want to erase.  At the same time it dramatically stimulates repair factors to produce a healthy supply of the right kind of collagen along with elastin, and glycosaminoglycans for a smoother, firmer complexion.


  2. Volumizing:
    MicroChanneling Rejuvenation uses a unique stamping method that creates tiny micro columns in the skin that go down to the base of the epidermis where it stimulates fibroblasts to produce the new collagen fibers in an upward fashion.  This enhances the thickness and strength of your skin in the dermal layer.  In the epidermis it stimulates keratinocytes to create a thicker, more organized epithelial layer.  This is not the kind of unhealthy thickness that comes from an accumulation of corneocytes as a result of sun damage, but the increased keratinocytes which are fresh, vibrant, plump and well hydrated.


  3. Helps Reduce Age Spots:
    MicroChanneling Rejuvenation aids in exfoliation of the top layers of skin to minimize age spots.  It also increases penetration of cytokines which help normalize melanin production (the pigment producing cells in your skin) thus encouraging a more even toned complexion.


  4. Acne Scarring:
    MicroChanneling Rejuvenation can help reduce acne scarring by helping to break down unorganized scar tissue and stimulating the skin to produce new collagen that is laid down in a healthy columnar fashion as opposed to flat striated layers.


  5. Premature Skin Aging:
    MicroChanneling Rejuvenation not only minimizes wrinkles, it stimulates energy in keratinocytes which wakes up fibroblasts to encourage skin to repair and replace cells in a way that’s similar to the way your younger cells used to do – minimizing future wrinkles.


  6. Pore Size:
    MicroChanneling Rejuvenation helps to normalize the sizes of pores that have been expanded over time – especially those around the nose and cheeks which may be the result of the flattening of the dermis which occurs with age.  By producing healthier collagen and healthy thickening of the epidermis the pore size appears smaller.


  7. Reduces Clogged Pores:
    MicroChanneling Rejuvenation perforates the skin to loosen and dislodge hardened oil found in clogged pores.


Not to be confused with Micro-Needling Treatments that are rolled or glided over the skin. Those micro-needling treatments of the past dragged over the skin creating uneven cuts or tears that caused unnecessary inflammation.   Even fractional lasers rely on intensely high temperatures which create damage before it jump-starts wound healing and collagen production.  MicroChanneling Rejuvenation uses tiny needles that only go down to the dermal/epidermal junction.  This way it excites cytokines to go into repair mode without causing excessive damage, and without unnecessary downtime, discomfort or inflammation.

How many Treatments Do you Need?

The number of treatments range greatly depending on what we are treating:

  • For light anti-aging: 1-3 treatments are recommended.
  • For deeper wrinkles or acne scarring at least 6 treatments may be required.
  • There is no limit to the number of treatments that one can receive as long as adequate time passes between each treatment.
  • The ideal time between treatments is 4 weeks.
  • We encourage you to have them in-between your regular facial treatments.
  • You can purchase a series of 3 or 6 treatments for a reduced price.

MicroChanneling Rejuvenation creates invisible micro-perforations which stimulate cells called keratinocytes to produce new collagen, elastin, glycosaminoglycans and healthy epithelial cells.  It does this by stimulating the healing cascade of cytokines, which is a natural part of your body’s repair mechanism.

Visible improvements in aging skin, acne scarring, uneven pigmentation and overall tone and texture are real with MicroChanneling Rejuvenation.  With our expertise, we can show you how to make those results last!

Glow on the Go

Glow on the Go

Pumpkin Peel‘Tis the season to be busy.   Those holiday parties are right around the corner and you notice that the summer glow you had just a few weeks ago is turning dull and lackluster.  Your lines appear a bit more pronounced…  or is that just your imagination?  You may even be experiencing typical fall breakouts.  The idea of having a facial sounds so appealing, but time is short.  How are you going to squeeze that into your already overbooked schedule?  Introducing…

Glow On The Go

For a limited time only Elizabeth Renee Esthetics is offering the perfect pre-holiday pumpkin peel treatment for only $49. This quick half hour treatment is designed to brighten the skin, soften lines, ease dryness, help even out skin tone and minimize redness and irritation.  With Glow on the Go you’re sure to look and feel radiant, healthy and glowing, just in time for the holidays.

Why a  Pumpkin Peel ?

The mighty pumpkin, when fermented, contains more than 100 nutrients, including collagen building amino acids, skin renewing beta carotene (think retinol)  and moisturizing fatty acids. It’s not surprising that the skin eagerly accepts these nutrients and responds by producing a very happy, healthy glow.

Suitable for all skin types, the fermented pumpkin enzyme offers benefits to both dry and oily skin, producing results in a natural way. This natural exfoliation process removes unwanted debris from pores, enhances cellular regeneration and enables the skin to better absorb active ingredients, such as concentrated serums and moisturizers.

The pumpkin enzymes in Glow on the Go are incredibly useful for the biological processes of skin cells. With a proprietary combination of super fruits, this is the treatment of the future.  Fruit enzymes are gentler and safer than other peels, with superior anti-aging antioxidants that provide healthy benefits for your skin. At Elizabeth Renee Esthetics, our expert estheticians have the knowledge to choose the perfect timing and strength of your pumpkin peel to achieve maximum results for your skin.

The Process

  1. Skin is cleansed and effectively analyzed to determine the correct pumpkin enzymes for your skin type.
  2. A thin coat of pumpkin enzyme peel is applied for 3-10 minutes and gently removed with warm towels.
  3. A hydrating serum is applied using cold ultrasound to deeply moisturize new cells and soothe the skin.
  4. We finish with a few drops of FijiGirl Facial Oil (with retinol & emollients) followed by a protective sunscreen.

Your skin will feel incredibly soft and look impeccably smooth.

What’s the deal with a Cranberry Peel?

What’s the deal with a Cranberry Peel?

cranberrypeelOf all the peels in all the world why should you choose a Cranberry Peel?

A Cranberry Peel is beneficial for most skin types, especially dry, dehydrated or somewhat sensitive skins.  The combination of enzymes plus lactic acid in this peel offers a little more exfoliation than solely enzyme based peels. This means that a Cranberry Peel is highly effective for removing the accumulation of dead, dehydrated cells that can clog pores or give the skin a dull, lifeless look, yet a cranberry peel is still gentle enough to be used on all but the most sensitive skin types.  The low-level amount of Lactic Acid found in this peel is not only great for exfoliating, but has wonderful hydrating properties and helps to diminish pigmentation. The new skin revealed looks fresher, more moist and boasts a lovely radiant glow.

You also get a bonus effect with our Cranberry Peel.  Cranberries are nutrient rich with Vitamin C and packed with anti-aging antioxidants.  These help replace and repair collagen fibers that has been damaged from past sun exposure.  The bottom line is that Cranberry Extracts (processed correctly) help your skin retain it’s tone and firmness.

To create softer, calmer, well hydrated skin, ask for a Cranberry Peel to be added to your facial or as an à la carte treatment that can be done in-between your regular monthly facial treatments.

Better Than Microdermabrasion

Better Than Microdermabrasion

wet / dry microdermabrasion

Do you love microdermabrasion?  Our clients rave about it.  This popular exfoliation technique delivers immediate results to smooth the skin, soften lines and even pigmentation. When microdermabrasion was first introduced we saw results like we’ve never seen before.  This has been the “it” exfoliating treatment for years.  But, now there’s a new “darling” in the world of effective exfoliating spa treatments. It’s called Bio-Brasion. Bio-Brasion is very much like our beloved microdermabrasion, only better. Much better.

What Is Bio-Brasion?

Simply put, Bio-Brasion is an advanced technology treatment for effective exfoliation.  It combines a diamond tipped hand piece with low suction and gentle vibrations to painlessly exfoliate the skin. Infused into this treatment is a special wet / dry microdermabrasion system that pushes hydrating ingredients deep into the skin while introducing skin brighteners and pore clearing ingredients that allows for peak performance and maximum results.

Why is this better than traditional microdermabrasion?

Technically Bio-Brasion is a form of microdermabrasion. The treatments are very similar, but there are a few factors that set Bio-Brasion microdermabrasion treatments apart from the rest.

With traditional microdermabrasion, the particles used are made of aluminum oxide crystals.  These sand like crystals have a few problems:

  • First of all they are messy.  You can get crystals in your hair, in your mouth, on your clothes, in your ears and God forbid you can get them in your eyes.
  • The amount of crystals sprayed on the skin can be hard to control.  This sometimes means uneven or unpredictable exfoliation which could result in prolonged red patches.
  • In some cases the crystals might  get lodged in the pores which could contribute to increased acne flare-ups.
  • The suction used in traditional microdermabrasion can be quite strong. Anyone with weak capillary walls or prone to redness should stay away from traditional microdermabrasion treatments or risk damage to their skin.

Our estheticians have always loved microdermabrasion and often got great results but because of these considerations, they have had to think twice before recommending it to clients.  Often we would opt out for a milder peel that would involve less variables. The best candidates were those with thick, sun damaged skin and those who were not actively breaking out or had to worry about skin sensitivities.

Our new Bio-Brasion Treatment has solved these potential problems and then made some extraordinary innovations that greatly increase the positive results you’ll enjoy:

  • Bio-Brasion’s diamond tipped heads eliminate the need to use crystals.  There are five diamond tips that each correspond to the clients skin type. and allow for precise and consistent exfoliation.
  • Bio-Brasion uses a lower suction, so you’re not pulling or tugging at fragile capillaries and there is no risk of damage.
  • Unlike traditional microdermabrasion, it’s performed on wet skin which increases skin hydration and penetration of performance ingredients.
  • Bio-Brasion is like three treatments in one.  With each pass over the skin a corrective serum is infused into the skin:
  1. THE PEEL PHASE. The first pass over the skin includes applying a gentle AHA/BHA based foam peel which instantly starts to loosens up dead skin cells, so when the Bio-Brasion hand piece goes over the skin, it works quite effectively at removing these dissolving cells.
  2. THE TREATMENT PHASE. The second pass is more treatment oriented.  Your esthetician will choose either a brightening serum (which is a blend of Vitamin C and niacinamide) that easily penetrates the pores to help correct sun-damage and even skin tone, or a clearing solution (containing antibacterial and pore clarifying salicylic acid) to target excess oil, blemishes and blocked pores.
  3. THE BUFFING PHASE.  As the Bio-Brasion hand piece gently buffs over the skin in the third pass, anti-aging peptides, promote cell renewal, strengthen the skin and reduce inflammation.  This ensures a softer, smoother texture and promotes a beautifully hydrated complexion.

Who should try it?

The good news is, Bio-Brasion is safe and effective for most skin types. I’d still be a little hesitant to recommend it for very sensitive, reactive or allergy prone skins which might do better with a calming treatment such as our Cold Fusion Facial. Just about everyone else will see phenomenal results for retexturizing of their skin with either a Bio-Brasion Ultra Brightening Facial, a Bio-Brasion Ultra Smoothing Facial or a Bio-Brasion Ultra Clearing Facial.

The Results.

Bio-Brasion is especially good for undoing the ravages of sun-damage. It helps retexturize skin into something smoother, more translucent, soft and touchable.

For large pores, clogged pores and problem skin it helps remove debris that fills up the pores as it reduces the appearance of large pores.   The antiseptic portion of the treatment kills acne bacteria which greatly reduces acne flareups.  Combine Bio-Brasion with a extractions and you have a powerful tool for treating problem breakouts and achieving a beautifully healthy, clear complexion.

For uneven pigmentation, Bio-Brasion works especially well when dealing with sun induced hyper-pigmentation. When combined with a light chemical peel you can achieve excellent results without over stressing your skin.  Pigmentation is a difficult problem to deal with.  To make real changes in your skin you should consider a series of weekly Bio-Brasion Treatments, and don’t forget the importance of proper homecare.

We are very excited to bring you this new skin perfecting treatment. Bio-Brasion is an excellent way to retexturize your skin without resorting to invasive medical procedures.  One treatment will brighten, smooth and refresh your skin and can be done alone or as part of one of our Bio-Brasion Skin Correcting Facials. For best results contact Elizabeth Renee Esthetics Skincare Spa to set up a consultation with one of our expert estheticians who will create an effective protocol for your unique skin type.

How to Keep Your Skin From Sagging

How to Keep Your Skin From Sagging

Microcurrent TreatmentSkin loses that wonderfully tight, dense tone as you age.  This leads to sagging, wrinkles and a dull-looking complexion. Aging skin is the result of internal and external factors. The the main external culprits are: the sun, smoking, exposure to pollutants, stress and a nutritionally deprived diet.  Internally, often due to genetic components, everything slows down.  Poor circulation means cells are deprived of vital nutrients.  Cells have less energy to repair and replace themselves.  Stem cells and fibroblasts (the master cells that trigger skin repair) seem to go to sleep.  The result is a loss of vital collagen and elastin fibers which give skin it’s strength and support.

To keep facial skin firm you need to boost the energy component of fibroblasts.  You can give your face back its youthful qualities or maintain them by getting regular spa treatments proven to naturally increase collagen and elastin.

Microcurrent therapy is a type of treatment that was was originally used in a medical setting as a treatment for Bell’s Palsy (which causes paralysis of facial muscles and causes ones face to droop).  After microcurrent treatments, patients’ faces seemed “lifted” and it was reported by physicians that they appeared younger.  Microcurrent is used today a part of a facial treatment to tone collagen and elastin fibers, defining your features thus giving your face a tighter, firmer look.  It also sends a message to stem cells and fibroblasts to lay down new collagen and elastin.  It increases circulation which means better nutrition to the skin and when paired with a compatible corrective serum, microcurrent offers excellent penetration of performance ingredients like peptides and Vitamin C which are instrumental for new collagen production. You’ll also find you’ll achieve wonderful results when using microcurrent around the eyes.  Microcurrent not only firms but aids in lymphatic drainage to help reduce puffiness and brighten the eye area.

At Elizabeth Renee Esthetics we offer two types of microcurrent facials. The BioLift Brightening Facial uses light microcurrent in combination with other brightening and skin firming modalities.  The Skin Sculpting Facial is a more intensive treatment, which concentrates solely on in-depth skin toning using a more powerful microcurrent device, perfect when toning is your ultimate goal.  Both treatments are very relaxing, hydrating and rejuvenating.  Your skin will look fresh and renewed and show off a wonderfully youthful glow.

A microcurrent facial is great for maintenance or a quick fix for a special occasion, but optimal results may require a series of treatments.  Six to twelve,  45 minute treatments can be done separately from your regular monthly facials.  Our BioLift Brightening Facial is currently our most popular facial for mature skin clients.

Home care is especially important.  Back up you skin microcurrent treatments with corrective serums that contain high potency Vitamin C, peptides or stem cell stimulators. Elizabeth Renee offers other treatments which aid in skin firmness like LED light treatments and Microdermabrasion, but in my opinion, if you want quick tightening results in a non-invasive treatment and skin firming is your main focus, microcurrent is the way to go. 

It’s All About Eyes

It’s All About Eyes

microcurrent eyeThe eyes are not only the window to the soul, but a great indicator of your health, age and emotions.  When you first meet someone the initial connection is often made by looking into their eyes.  Is this a happy person, a friendly person, someone you want to know?

Unfortunately, with today’s hectic life styles your eyes tend to suffer.  If you work with computers or get less that the desired eight hours sleep; if you have a glass of wine, eat salty foods or foods your body has trouble metabolizing; or if you are under stress or exposed to harsh weather conditions your eyes may look and feel worn out.  Whether it’s dark circles, puffiness, sagging skin or crow’s feet your eyes say a lot about your current health.

At Elizabeth Renee Esthetic’s Skincare Spa we realize that eyes are often overlooked in your skincare routine, even though the contour area around your eyes is the most delicate area of the face.  We think this is so important we have devoted a whole month to caring for the eye area.  During The “EYES” of March we offer eye treatments, quick eye makeup updates, even an eye facial, plus useful recommendations about what eye care formulations will be most beneficial for your unique skin type.

You should think about devoting this month to taking care of the skin around your eyes.  At Elizabeth Renee Esthetics we’ve developed a new facial with just this in mind.  Our new Firm & Lift Eye Facial is a soothing treatment that uses advanced micro-firming technology to promote beautiful looking eyes.  It’s more than your typical eye treatment.  The Firm & Lift Eye Facial starts with a gentle enzyme masque brushed over the eye bone and swept across the tops of the cheeks.  The carefully selected enzymes gently dissolve surface dead cells that accentuate wrinkles.  This masque also tightens and sooths the skin.  Following the masque our especially trained estheticians perform a feather light manual lymphatic drainage massage.  This type of massage encourages lymphatic vessels (which hold fluid, toxins and pigment in the area around the eyes) to drain away lymph, helping to reduce puffiness and dark circles. The third phase of the treatment is devoted to a new microcurrent technology.  Microcurrent treatments are often referred to as “non-surgical face lifts”.  Elizabeth Renee Esthetics uses the newest technology, focusing specifically on tightening the delicate muscles around the eyes.  The result is fresh, radiant skin that feels comfortable and looks great.

Here are some at-home treatments for fresher looking eyes:

Dark Circles: Cover your eyes for 15 minutes with cotton pads soaked in cool cucumber juice. Note: Cut slices of Cucumbers; place them in a small bowl and cover them with cold distilled water from the fridge. After removing the cotton pads, massage in Eyelift Brightening Cream, lightly around the eyes, using gentle pumping motions on the bone, going away from the eyes.

Puffy Eyes: Moisten two chamomile tea bags with cold water or stick them in the refrigerator to cool them.   Place them over the eyes for five to ten minutes. You may also use cotton pads soaked in Chamazulene Toner. Follow with Anti-Puff Gel that you’ve left in the fridge. Apply sparingly on the eye bone.  Take the “cold” glass bottle of Anti-Puff Gel and roll it over the puffy areas. This treatment works best when done in the morning.

Dry Eyes: Apply a warm washcloth over your eyes for up to ten minutes followed by the gentle massage mentioned above. Do this several times per day. This helps open clogged oil glands in the eyelids that help with lubrication.

Tired Eyes: Rub your palms quickly together until they feel warm. Cup them over your closed eyes. Feel the heat emanating from your palms, but don’t touch your eyelids. Sit quietly in this position for a minute. Repeat several times. This helps to soothe eyes and revitalize the surrounding area.

If you visit Elizabeth Renee Esthetics during the month of March take advantage of the tips and tricks our skincare guru’s will happily share with you.  Our “EYES” of March Promotion also offers quick eye makeup techniques that are sure to brighten your eyes.  Ask about special discounts on eye creams and eye makeup.  We intend to make the month of March an eye opening experience.
