Anti-aging Skin Therapies & The New World of Un-Aging

Many people are always looking for new ways to improve their skin and to seek out lotions and potion, pills and sachets to do the job.  We know that there are two types of aging, one is called photo-aging and the other is termed, “chronoaging”.  “Photo-aging” is the worst offender and it is directly related to your sun exposure over your lifetime. 

Sunshine is a powerful force, it helps us to rise in the morning and keeps us going throughout the day, and every human being on this planet literally revolves around the sun. Still, despite all the good it does, the sun can be quite harmful. Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States, and 80% of the changes that cause our skin to look older are directly related to the sun. We can achieve healthy skin and stay away from the surgeon with just a bit of knowledge and simple steps to protect our skin. We have the right tools for you to help keep your skin youthful and supple..

HydraFacial Treatments

The future of skin care is an approach, using machines and serums as one way to make your skin glow! The HydraFacial™ resurfacing treatment thoroughly enhances the skin, using patented Vortex Technology™ to cleanse, exfoliate, extract, and hydrate simultaneously. It merges invigorating spa therapies with advanced medical technology to achieve instant and lasting results. The procedure is soothing, moisturizing, non-irritating, and immediately effective. Dr. Hall utilizes the HydraFacial™ deep clean as the first step before using lasers to maximize results. You will love your new face!

HydraFacial Treatment: A six-stage process that is done with a Hydrafacial device — a high-tech gadget that looks like a pen but dispenses serums and sucks out debris from the skin.

What it involves: Using different treatment heads, the device gives the skin a lymph drainage massage; performs microdermabrasion to remove dead and polluted skin cells; and then applies glycolic acid (an exfoliating acid derived from sugar cane), which softens blockages in the pores.

Everything is then vacuumed out, leaving the skin much smoother and more receptive to the dose of complexion-boosting vitamins, peptides and moisturising hyaluronic acid that follows in order to smooth out wrinkles. The final step is a few minutes under a red light panel, which calms the skin and stimulates collagen formation.

How it feels: The experience is a bit like a high-tech car wash for the face. The treatment head of the device is constantly being changed and then worked over the whole face, so there is no pampering massage involved.

The clever tip of the Hydrafacial sucks the water back up as fast as it is delivered, so you don’t end up covered with water or serum.

The results: My skin looked a little pink at the end of the session — but was also fresh and glowing.

It leaves the skin wonderfully clean and plumped up from the hyaluronic acid and peptide solution. I’d do this a day before a big event to give my skin time to calm down afterwards.

Hall Longevity Clinic Offers a Full Range of Acne Treatment Services

Dr. Hall has a keen sense of how acne can affect a person. Acne or skin issues can be related to hormones, environmental toxins, humidity and heat, stress or pH imbalance, and exposure to heavy metals like bromide and fluoride.  Dr. Hall uses the Dermapen™ to help smooth ice pick scars and fade stubborn blemishes. He really knows skin and how to make it glow!

Dr. Hall will initially use the HydraFacial™ to prepare the skin and then use the Cutera’s Laser Genesis™ technology of the Nd-Yag laser designed to penetrate and improve the appearance of acne skin blemishes including acne scars, redness, and rosacea, wrinkles, as well as various signs of aging and sun damage. Calibrated specifically to stimulate new collagen growth while protecting surrounding tissues, this non-invasive laser can help to even skin tone and refine pore sizes through the gentle application of heat underneath the skin.

Treatment times are generally relatively short with minimal discomfort. There is rarely any recovery or downtime associated with Laser Genesis™ treatments, but multiple sessions may be necessary to achieve optimal results. Additionally, minor redness and occasional swelling may occur, but these symptoms should dissipate shortly after treatment. Ultimately, treatment with the Laser Genesis™ can give your skin a more youthful-looking appearance and a luminous glow while being efficient and minimally invasive.

Living in Florida – How Climate and Acne Coexist

In each pore or hair follicle, sebaceous glands are working to produce sebum, oil from your body that keeps skin moist. At puberty, the level of androgens (male hormones, which women also have) increases, causing the sebaceous glands to go into overdrive and produce excess sebum. This excess sebum combined with dead, sticky skin cells and/or bacteria creates the perfect set-up for breakouts.  Due to high humidity and heat our pores can remain open and easily blocked and filled with bacteria. Blockage of the follicle openings leads to the formation of a microcomedone, which is below the skin surface and thus known as the invisible origin of acne.

Acne is often 80% genetic and 20% environmental, the disease involves the oil glands and hair follicles of the skin, which is manifested by blackheads, whiteheads, acne pimples and healing acne blemishes. On some individuals, cysts and nodules (deeper skin lesions) may appear. Acne is one of the most common skin diseases in the US. While acne can affect anyone at any age, it usually begins at puberty and worsens during adolescence hormonal imbalances. It is estimated that 67% of people who have had acne report having experienced their first breakout by 13 years of age (deKadt Facial Skin Care Market Study, Acne Sufferers, 2006).

It’s important to note that an acne breakout begins 2-6 weeks before you actually see it appear on your skin, which is why sticking to a regular acne care routine is important for treating the acne you can already see, and for helping to prevent acne from occurring.

While all breakouts start off the same way, they can take on many forms and be present in different proportions depending on each individual and their unique skin condition. For example, some people tend to get pimples frequently, while others have mostly blackheads and whiteheads with only occasional pimples. That’s why it’s important to get the right treatment for your acne.

Anyone who has Acne has one of only several types.  We have provided a list of acne types:

Stages of acne:

  • Normal follicle
  • Open comedo (blackhead)
  • Closed comedo (whitehead)
  • Papule
  • Pustule
  • More severe forms of acne lesions.

What is Acne and Why We See So Much Acne Living in South Florida

Whether you are from NYC, LA or Lima, so many people come to Miami and see their skin change, and often for the worse.  It has to do with our climate, we are in a perpetual damp, sticky,  hot environment that teams with bacteria and other nasty germs that love to feed on our sebaceous secretions when our pores are open and exposed.  Think about being in a sauna all day, but that is the reality, our skin is our natural body temperature regulator and it uses our sweat and oil to dissipate heat.

Non-Inflammatory Acne

Whitehead or closed comedo: a clogged follicle that usually appears on the skin as a small, whitish bump. Blackhead or open comedo: a clogged follicle that usually appears on the skin with a dark tip, due to the buildup of melanin (the skin’s dark pigment).

Inflammatory Acne

Papule:

  • First sign of inflammatory acne
  • Small, firm pink bump raised to varying degrees
  • Can be tender to the touch

Pustule:

  • Like papules but with visible pus (red at base with yellowish or white center)

Nodule or cyst:

  • Large, usually very painful
  • Inflamed, pus-filled lesions deep within skin
  • Contents have spilled into the surrounding skin infecting the area
  • Most severe form of acne lesion
  • May persist for weeks or months
  • Often leaves deep scars

Acne conglobata:

  • Rare but serious form of inflammatory acne
  • Primarily occurs on back, buttocks, and chest
  • Exists in the presence of papules and pustules
  • May also have severe bacterial infection

We offer many options for acne skin care and we can provide Genesis Laser treatment by Cutera or medications if needed.
