Why Exfoliate?

Written by Kathy Nash. Posted in News

As we age, the process of cell regeneration slows down. This means that the body is slower to shed skin cells and generate new ones. When old skin cells start to pile up on the surface of the skin, it can leave skin looking dull, rough, and dry. Furthermore, the build-up of dead skin cells can result in excess oil and clogged pores, leading to blemishes and acne.

Proper exfoliation removes the barrier of dead skin cells clogging the skin and uncovers fresh new cells below. This opens the way for moisturizing products to penetrate more deeply into the skin, which makes them more effective. In short, a regular exfoliating routine will leave your skin looking fresh and healthy.

The best type of exfoliation depends on your complexion and the health and sensitivity of your skin. If you have extremely sensitive skin or severe acne, you will want to choose an exfoliating product and method carefully. A professional esthetician can help you choose the method most appropriate for you.

Medical micropigmentation can provide realistic-looking results

“Women and men who choose to have breast reconstruction following cancer surgery often find that their resulting appearance still falls too short of “normal,” particularly when they’re left with altered or missing areolae and/or nipples. In these cases, medical micropigmentation can provide realistic-looking results to help speed up true psychological recovery and a sense of normalcy.

To help practitioners perform this in-demand procedure, Nouveau Contour offers Intelligent, the first computerized permanent cosmetics device with an Intel microprocessor chip. Thanks to software installed within its operating system, the device calculates the best needle frequency needed to achieve optimal pigment retention for each unique area of application, enabling the practitioner to create completely believable reconstructions. Intelligent can also reduce the appearance of radiotherapy marks and diffuse post-procedural scarring.”
