What is it?Silhouette InstaLift is a minimally invasive facial suture that produces elegant results while avoiding the challenges of traditional surgery. It works in two ways: First, your physician will use the inserted sutures to elevate your skin to create a more youthful appearance. Second, the Silhouette InstaLift will stimulate the production of collagen in the face, which will continue to improve the facial contours after its placement in the patient.
What to ExpectAfter the patient’s initial consultation, we use a local anesthetic during the placement of the Silhouette InstaLift to ensure a comfortable experience. Patients may experience minimal tissue reactions in the form of swelling, bruising, and minor discomfort around the area of the suture placement. We ask that patients follow our post procedure instructions to reduce these reactions and encourage a quick recovery.
Hormone Replacement Therapy
What is it?Women going through menopause may wish to begin hormone therapy to relieve uncomfortable menopausal symptoms, and to maintain their skin’s youthful elasticity. Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) can improve collagen production, which can keep your skin better protected and hydrated.
Botox® CosmeticBotox is a non-surgical procedure that temporarily reduces moderate to severe wrinkles. These lines appear as a result of muscle contractions. Years of frequent contractions can cause creases and folds. Neurotoxins are chemicals such as Botox (Botulinum Toxin A) can be injected into the face to prevent muscles from moving in ways that create lines. They do not “fill-in” the lines, but rather, make them less apparent, less deep or even disappear by preventing you from making the face that causes those lines. The most common areas for neurotoxins are the forehead, the area between the brows (“frown lines”), and crow’s feet (lines at the corner of the eyes). Neurotoxins can also be used to help turn up a down-turned mouth, reduce dimpling of the chin, improve upper lip lines (smoker lines), smooth the jawline by softening the pull of the neck “bands” (muscles that run from the back of the jaw to the chest) and even reduce underarm sweating. While Botox is the oldest and most well-known of the neurotoxins (having been used cosmetically for over 20 years), there are newer formulations of Botulinum Toxin such as Dysport and Xeomin. These products work in the same way as Botox, but may be useful as alternatives if someone seems to be resistant to Botox or just wants an alternative. More similar products are on the horizon. Botox is injected with a very tiny needle, and bruising is rare, but can occur.
What to ExpectBotox generally takes anywhere from 3 days to 2 weeks to start working. Botox treatment typically last 3-5 months . We recommend repeat treatments before full movement has returned to maximize your benefits, while minimizing the cost.
Xeomin® was released in the United States in 2012 as an alternative injectable option to Botox with similarly effective results. Just like Botox, Xeomin works by relaxing and softening the action of muscles. Xeomin is often referred to as “naked Botox,” as it has none of the additives found in Botox. This means that patients are less likely to develop antibodies to the product. Results are very similar to Botox, emerging over the course of a week and lasting an average of 3 or 4 months. Xeomin® is apart of a class of “neuromodulating” medications approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for cosmetic use.
Dysport® is made from the same neurotoxin (botulinum toxin type A) as Botox®. Dysport® (formally Reloxin) received the approval of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use as a wrinkle treatment in the spring of 2009 for smoothing out facial folds and lines. Dysport is similar to Botox® and Xeomin®, although some research suggests that Dysport may be faster-acting and longer-lasting. It also spreads farther from the injection site, thus allowing a broader area of small wrinkles (such as the “crow’s feet” lines that splay out from the corners of the eyes) to be treated with fewer injections. Like Botox & Xeomin, Dysport is injected directly into the facial muscles beneath the lines of the face. Usually, only 3 to 5 injections are needed to temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines). Most people find the injections almost painless, so a local anesthetic is usually not needed.
Next Generation Dermal FillersJuvéderm® is a ‘next generation’ family of smooth, long-lasting gel dermal fillers, and the latest advance in hyaluronic acid cosmetic filler technology. Over recent years, hyaluronic acid, a complex sugar already found naturally in the body, has become a favored compound for replenishing the areas of the face where the skin’s volume and fullness has been lost. Juvéderm® is biosynthetic and of non-animal origin. No testing is required prior to administration. It has been proven to be safe and effective for skin of all types and colors. The main difference between Juvéderm® and other popular hyaluronic acid fillers is that Juvéderm® has the highest concentration of hyaluronic acid, and is produced with a special formulation process that makes it smoother than that of other popular gels. Juvéderm® lasts up to six months or longer, and as with other hyaluronic acid fillers, Juvéderm® is gradually absorbed naturally into the body. A topical numbing cream or nerve blocks are performed prior to injection to ensure your safety and minimize any discomfort from the injection. Any minor swelling or bruising that results from the injection resolves quickly and patients can return to their normal activities the same day.
Juvéderm® is available in two formulations:
- Juvéderm® Ultra: for contouring and volumizing average-depth depressions/wrinkles such as nasolabial folds, forehead wrinkles, glabellar lines, mild-to-moderate nasal and cheek furrows, and to plump up thin lips.
- Juvéderm® Ultra Plus: is a non-particle formulation of hyaluronic acid except more highly concentrated and cross-linked. This allows it to be an ideal substance to be injected into moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. It is particularly useful to replace fill in volume around the deeper folds of the nose and mouth.
Juvederm Voluma XC
Subtle lift that lastsWrinkles and lines aren’t the only signs of aging. Over time, the cheeks flatten, and the skin may begin to sag. This is caused by a natural loss of volume in the cheek area, or what the experts call age-related midface volume loss. Juvéderm Voluma XC® is designed to add volume beneath the skin’s surface to lift and contour the cheek area. Juvéderm Voluma XC® is an FDA-approved filler to address and correct age related volume loss in the midface, or cheeks. Through this non-surgical technique using a filler derived from a naturally occurring sugar, it is now possible to lift and rejuvenate the cheeks restoring the round youthful appearance. Results can last up to 2 years.
Belotero Balance®Belotero Balance®, an alternative to other hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal fillers such as Juvederm® or Restylane®, can be very beneficial to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This non-surgical injectable is thinner and softer in consistency compared to similar products, allowing Belotero Balance® to more completely integrate with your skin. Belotero Balance® is designed to create smoother, younger-looking facial skin by utilizing nourishing elements that mimic the skin’s own natural moisturizers. This injectable can leave skin feeling soft and supple, making Belotero Balance® an ideal choice for treating the area around the eyes or for use in delicate procedures such as lip enhancement.
Why People Choose Belotero Balance®Belotero Balance® is an FDA-approved non-surgical treatment to directly fill fine lines and wrinkles on the face. Due to the fine consistency of this innovative injectable, the contours of the face can be smoothed and enhanced in an inconspicuous manner, providing patients with facial features that look refreshed rather than artificial. Areas of the face that can be rejuvenated with Belotero Balance® include:
The goal of this initial consultation is to provide you with all the information you need to make an informed decision about your cosmetic treatment. After your consultation, you will have a better understanding of how Belotero Balance® can help you achieve your aesthetic goals.
- Fine lines
- Frown lines
- Crow’s feet
- Thinning lips
What to ExpectBelotero Balance® is well tolerated by most patients and the treatment typically causes only mild discomfort. We use a multi-modality regimen with several pain reducing techniques to help ensure your experience is as comfortable as possible. If you are on aspirin, non-steroidal pain medications (NSAIDs), blood thinning medications (Coumadin, Lovenox, Plavix, etc.), or herbal medications (garlic, Vitamin E, etc) you may have a slightly higher risk of bruising after your Belotero Balance® treatment. After your Belotero Balance® injection, most patients can resume normal daily activities. We recommend avoiding strenuous activities the evening after injection. While some patients may experience mild bruising or swelling, these reactions typically resolve quickly. Belotero Balance® can play an important role in any facial rejuvenation regimen and ultimately provide smoother, younger, more refreshed-looking skin. To find out if Belotero Balance® is the right choice for you, please our clinic to schedule free consultation.
Natural-Looking ResultsLike Restylane®, Perlane® adds volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds such as lines from your nose and corners of your mouth. It is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid that is specifically formulated to add volume. The difference with Perlane® is the average size of the particles. On average, the gel particles in Perlane® are larger than those in Restylane®, which makes Perlane® a good choice to treat even the deepest area of volume loss.
A Natural Look that LastsTake years off by restoring lost volume in the cheeks and softening the lines around the nose and mouth. Radiesse smoothes and fills hollows and stimulates the production of your own natural collagen. Results typically last for up to a year or more. Dermal fillers are injected only by licensed Nurse Practitioner. Radiesse® consists of smooth calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHA) microspheres that are suspended in a water-based gel to stimulate the body’s collagen production. Since Radiesse® must be injected carefully to prevent clumping or abnormal deposits. These advantages make Radiesse® an excellent and affordable choice for facial shaping and contouring. For the first three months after injection, Radiesse® initially performs as a filler substance by plumping up the skin. Then, due to its collagen-generating properties, Radiesse® actually stimulates new tissue development for extended correction for up to 12 to 24 months. A topical numbing cream or nerve blocks are performed prior to injection to ensure your safety and minimize any discomfort from the injection. Any minor swelling or bruising that results from the injection resolves quickly and patients can return to their normal activities the same day.

Natural Beauty from withinRestylane adds volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds such as lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth. Restylane can also add fullness and definition to lips in patients over 21 years of age, providing natural-looking and lasting results with just one treatment. Restylane® is a hyaluronic acid-based filler that can be very beneficial as a non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatment. Hyaluronic acid is a natural compound in the body, so the injectable treatment does not typically require an allergy test. Patients of Zest of Beauty Clinic often use this filler to reduce the appearance of wrinkles between the nose and mouth and around the eyes, as well as to add volume and new contours to facial features for a more youthful, refreshed look. The results of the treatment generally last 6-9 months and can be maintained with follow-up treatment. A topical numbing cream can be used to block the nerves prior to performing the injection, ensuring better comfort during the procedure. Any minor swelling or bruising that may occur should quickly resolve and patients are typically able to return to their normal activities the day after treatment or before.

BBL-Laser Vein Removal
ScitonThe Sciton laser effectively treats visible facial and leg spider veins using light energy. As the laser is passed over your skin, the heat is absorbed by the blood vessels, which break down and eventually shrink. Small capillaries often disappear immediately after treatment. Larger veins will be reabsorbed by your body over a period of time. You may feel a sensation of warmth as the laser pulses are absorbed by the unwanted blood vessels, but there should be little to no discomfort during the procedure. The treatment may last a few minutes to half an hour, depending on the size of the area to be treated. Schedule a consultation to learn more about how aesthetic laser treatments can improve your skin. BBL is an innovative light-based technology for treating skin conditions associated with aging, active life-styles and sun damage. BBL light energy precisely treats age and sun spots, small facial veins, and many other skin defects. BBL phototherapy is noninvasive so you can receive comfortable and effective treatments to fit your schedule, even on a lunch break.
The Vaser® Shape Cellulite and Body Contouring ProcedureVaser® Shape is a new FDA approved technology. Zest Medical Spa is the first to introduce this revolutionary technology to Tri-Cities. Vaser® Shape is truly a unique treatment that:
Vaser® Shape is a great non-surgical option to smooth the contours of the body without surgical side effects. Patients describe Vaser Shape as warm, comfortable and relaxing treatment similar to a hot stone massage.
- Targets specific areas of fatty and uneven tissue
- Applies to a broad patient population, treating various body types and multiple body areas
- Requires no pain medication during treatment, and no specific diet or exercise programs after treatment
- Produces visible, measurable and lasting results in only 3-5 sessions
- Helps reduce post-operative swelling by improving the blood circulation of the treated area.
- Side effects are generally mild and may include discomfort from heat sensation and redness, which typically resolve within a few hours. Potential risks and complications are rare and may include, but are not limited to, allergic reaction (to oil), asymmetry, bruising, swelling, burns, change in skin sensation, persistent redness, chronic pain and skin contour irregularities.
How Vaser® Shape WorksVaser® Shape treatments achieve noticeable results without surgery. The key is advanced technology that combines ultrasound energy and massage therapy to treat the fatty tissue layers under the skin. By moving an ultrasound diathermy handpiece over the treatment area, the clinician treats tissue below the surface of the skin. Ultrasound diathermy treats fatty tissue by emitting two overlapping beams of ultrasound energy, generating localized heat beneath the surface of the skin. The vacuum-assisted zonal massage helps to temporarily improve the appearance of cellulite and increase local blood circulation. The massage can be performed pre- and post-ultrasound diathermy. The Vaser® Shape technology creates a “micro-massage” effect on the fatty tissue layer, warming the connective tissue and increasing blood circulation.
Vaser® Shape uses high-frequency sound waves for local heat therapy and zonal massage to drain away excess toxins and fats. Heat therapy warms the treatment area and creates a “micromassage” effect on the fat cells. Zonal massage works with the lymphatic system to drain away excess toxins and fats, and increase local blood circulation. Vaser® Shape achieves noticeable results without surgery. The key? Combined ultrasound and massage therapy that treats fatty tissue underneath the skin. Together, these two processes:
- Smooth and shape the body by reducing the appearance of cellulite
- Improve local blood circulation
Vaser® Shape FAQHow Often Should I Have Treatment? You may have treatment as little as 2 days apart (every other day). Most people have treatment once a week, or every two weeks.
What Results Can I Expect from My Vaser Shape Treatment, and How Soon Will I See My Results? You can expect either mild, moderate or dramatic inch loss (we have had patients lose less than an inch, and other patients lose up to four inches after one treatment), and a reduction in the appearance of cellulite. Areas treated with Vaser Shape appear more smooth and “natural-looking” than before the treatment. Vaser Shape is excellent to focus on small, hard to get rid of, fat deposits and to address mild skin laxity (creepiness, loose skin). While you may see results after the first treatment, patients typically see the most visible results after a regimen of two to five sessions.
How Long Will My Treatment Be?
- You may schedule a 45 minute free consultation and evaluation for the Vaser Shape and return for treatment at a later date.
- At your treatment, you will change into garments, take “before” photographs, pre-measuring, treatment, taking “after” photographs, post-measuring, and changing out of the garments.
- Treatment time for the abdomen region and knee region is 30-45 minutes but you need extra time pre- and post-, so plan on being in our office for 1.5 – 2 hours total. If you are having an area done other than the Abdomen or knee region, plan on being on our office for 2 to 2.5 hours.
- Please arrive 15 minutes before your appointment time with all of your completed forms so that we can check you in. If you don’t have your forms with you, you must arrive 25 minutes early to complete them.
How Do I Prepare for the Treatments and Obtain the Best Results?
- Bring water with you and drink ample amounts (1 liter before and 1 liter after) each treatment. The treatment makes you thirsty.
- Consider compression garments to wear after your treatment, to cover the treated areas. Spanx are a popular light compression.
- Participate in at least 30 minutes of cardiovascular exercise for 3-4 days after treatment (Exercise helps your lymphatic system function better.) If you do not exercise, start with 15 minutes of fast walking per day and increase it by 10 minutes per day. Exercise makes your lymphatic system function better.
- Avoid high fat snacks and meals.
- Avoiding alcohol, which compete with your liver in processing fat cells.
How do I Maintain My Results Long Term?
- Eat high protein, high fiber, low fat foods. Calculate your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) on bmi-calculator.net/bmr-calculator and adjust your daily caloric intake. Consider consulting a nutritionist for a customized diet plan.
- Exercise as much as possible, 3-4 times a week.
- Avoid alcohol and high fat foods and snacks.h
What is it?The Eclipse MicroPen can be used for the successful treatment of acne scares, stretch marks, hyper-pigmentatino, large pores, fine wrnkles, and hair restoration (when combined with platelet-rich plasma).
How It WorksMicroPen creates a series of precise, controlled epidermal and dermal micro-injuries, thereby stimulating the body's immune response and producing new collagen and elastin.
BBL Forever Young
BBL PhotorejuvenationUsing Sciton BBL technology, the Forever Young BBL is the first and the only treatment designed to delay the appearance of visible skin aging in all patients, including these with darker skin type. In addition to the proven clinical improvement in the appearance of photo-aged skin, compelling evidence supports Longterm BBL treatments will enhance the expression of longevity related genes in aged skin cells; essentially reversing the aging process and returning the skin to a genetically youthful state.
Broad Band Light (BBL)™ skin treatments using the photo-rejuvenation process represents a breakthrough in age-defying skin care. This non-invasive technique treats skin damage like brown spots, red spots, uneven skin tone and sun damage. These simple and safe treatments provide skin tightening, pigment correction of sun damaged and sagging skin with minimal down time. A series of treatments is usually necessary to achieve optimal results. BBL can be performed on face, neck, décolleté, hands, arms, back, literally anywhere there is sun-damage or pigment irregularities. BBL BroadBand Light technology utilizes the power of pulsed light to deliver excellent phototherapy results. By selecting the appropriate wavelength or filter, our staff will be able to treat a broad range of skin conditions caused by skin aging and sun exposure. The light energy delivered by the BBL gently heats the upper layers of the skin. The heat absorbed by the targeted areas stimulates the skin cells to generate new collagen. This process helps restore the skin to its natural stage. In addition, the photothermal energy targets and eliminates many of the fine vessels that cause redness and the unwanted melanin responsible for pigmented lesions.
A Non-Surgical Way to Get Youthful Looking SkinTurning back the clock is something many patients wish they could do. And it makes sense. Many of us age a little bit faster than we’d like–and certainly the years add up faster than we feel them. So when Ulthera became available as a way to help patients get a more youthful appearance, we were among the first to embrace this fantastic new technology. Zest is proud to offer FDA-cleared Ultherapy. Ultherapy uses time-tested ultrasound energy to lift and tighten the skin naturally—without surgery or downtime. Ultherapy treats the deep layers of skin tissue without disturbing the surface of the skin and is the only non-invasive procedure FDA-cleared to lift skin on the neck, under the chin and on the eyebrow.
How Does it Work?This engineering achievement utilizes medical ultrasound technology like never before: to tighten skin. How? The Ulthera DeepSEE system combines two incredible functionalities of ultrasonic waves: seeing and treating. Therefore, this ingenious combination allows provider to achieve a noninvasive thermal effect with precision and consistency at an unprecedented depth…while still being safe and easily monitored by the provider.
Acoustic energy delivery to the soft tissue can help transform skin by promoting collagen formation and causing tightening. The use is novel, but the concept itself has been used in the medical community for over 50 years in diagnostic imaging and therapeutic devices.
Ulthera is the very first recipient of FDA clearance to market ultrasound technology for facial aesthetic improvement. It has been studied thoroughly by many physicians in the clinical setting. In fact, in the FDA clinical trial, nine out ten patients had a noticeable, significant lift of the brow line.
What to ExpectThe treatment area may appear red following the procedure, and some patients experience swelling, tingling, or tenderness immediately afterward as well. Side effects from Ulthera® are generally mild and temporary. Ultrasound technology has been used in the medical field for over 50 years, and Ulthera® is FDA-approved for non-surgical skin tightening. In order to gain FDA approval, Ulthera® was demonstrated and approved as a safe treatment. Ideal candidates for Ultherapy® include both women and men who are experiencing sagging in the skin under the chin and around the neck. Ultherapy® is not a replacement for surgery in patients with more advanced signs of aging but can help individuals who would like to lift, tone, and tighten areas of loose skin.
Skin Tightening with BBL SkinTyte™SkinTyte™ is a non-invasive, no downtime, skin tightening, that uses light to heat the deep layer in the skin, activating the body’s repair response to make and remodel collagen. Over time, this process reduces the appearance of loose, saggy, lax skin.
How does SkinTyte work?
As our skin ages, its base foundation known as the dermal matrix begins to lose its tight, interwoven structure as some of its elastin and collagen strands become stretched. There is also a decreased production of collagen and elastin. The SkinTyte procedure utilizes infrared thermal energy to deeply heat collagen in the dermis. The heat also initiates the body’s natural healing or repair process, which creates a renewed collagen foundation leading to increased skin firmness. Powerful cooling maintains the outer surface of your skin at a cool temperature before, during, and after each pulse providing the patient a comfortable and safe procedure.
Who should consider SkinTyte?
The procedure is recommended for those who desire mild to moderate, noticeable skin improvement, without surgery.
When will I begin to see results?
3-5 treatment sessions are often recommended to achieve maximum collagen rebuilding and skin firming. Patients may see immediate firming results right after treatment, but the full effect of improvement is achieved several months after treatment as collagen continues to rebuild.
Sciton Profile ClearScan
The Sciton Profile ClearScan laser selectively targets your hair follicles and heats them with laser energy. Unlike other treatments, the laser beam treats many hairs at once, making treatment of large areas practical. The ClearScan utilizes a unique computer-guided scanning system that automates the treatment, ensuring your skin is rapidly and evenly treated. The computer places the beam in an optimum pattern for your skin to experience a safe, effective and gentle treatment. Because of its revolutionary cooling plate, the new Sciton Neodynium YAG 1064 laser is fast, effective, and virtually painless. The Sciton laser is able to remove even finer hairs, so even as hair gets finer and finer through treatments, it still continues to remove the hair.
All hair in the area to be treated should be shaved 1-3 days prior to treatment. Older laser technology (the Lightsheer XC Diode) required an anesthetic cream to minimize discomfort. Our new Sciton YAG laser is virtually painless, so no creams are required. Treating small areas like the face, underarm, bikini area or lower abdomen takes just a few minutes. Larger areas like the arms, back or legs can take up to an hour.
Because hairs cycle through growth phases at different times, more than one session is required for satisfactory reduction. Depending on the area being treated, an average of 4-8 sessions, spaced 4-8 months apart, is recommended for long-term hair reduction. Some future touch-ups may be required.
While every patient is different, here is a general guideline:
- Lip: 2-3 sessions
- Face: 3-4 sessions
- Bikini line: 3-4 sessions
- Arms: 5-6 sessions
- Under Arms: 3-4 sessions
- Legs: 5-6 sessions
- Back: 4-5 sessions
What is Chemical Peel?A chemical peel uses a chemical solution to smooth the texture of your skin by removing the damaged outer layers. Although chemical peels are used mostly on the face, they can also be used to improve the skin on your neck and hands. A chemical peel is one of the least invasive ways to improve the appearance of your skin. Sun exposure, acne, or just getting older can leave your skin tone uneven, wrinkled, spotted or scarred.
- Superficial peels are the mildest type of chemical peel and can be used on all skin types. Superficial peels usually use liquid containing a mild (dilute) acid, most often glycolic, salicylic and retinoic acids. We use Epionce Little Peel and “Perfect peel” due to their consistent performance, and also safe for ALL skin types.
- Medium to deeper peels penetrate the skin more deeply than superficial peels. The deep peel is basically a TCA peel which is performed by nurse practitioner. We use Perfect Derma Plus Booster.
What's in it?
- Malic Acid 30% – Potent Alpha Hydroxy Acid that encourages cell turnover, hydration and reduces problem bacteria.
- Salicylic Acid 5% – Anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties improve skin clarity and texture by cleansing pores; lipophilic properties boosts the penetration of malic acid for optimum cell turnover.
- Willow Bark Extract 14.5% – Anti-bacterial and comedolytic properties help cleanse pores.
- Onion Bulb Extract 0.5% – Anti-inflammatory properties calm and soothe the skin. Contains quercetin to stimulate and encourage the production of collagen and elastin.
Epionce Peel System
Formulated to improve the appearance and texture of the skin by increasing cell turnover, the physician-strength Epionce Peel System provides the same corrective benefits as a Jessner’s with minimal downtime. There are two parts: sal-e and mal-e. The steps can be used as standalone treatments or together for medical/clinical settings where the medical professional can customize the treatment series to the needs of the patient.
The Perfect Derma™ Peel
Medical Grade Chemical PeelThe Perfect Derma Peel is safe and effective for all skin types, requires no pre-peel skin preparation and is virtually painless. It is the only peel that includes the powerful anti-oxidant Glutathione, which neutralizes the harmful effects of free radicals, slows down the aging process and helps prevent wrinkles. Kojic Acid is a powerful lightener proven to increase collagen and elastin production, resulting in firmer skin. TCA, Phenol and Retinoic Acid reduce wrinkles and correct pigment problems. Salicylic Acid exfoliates the skin and reduces inflammation.
The Perfect Derma Peel is safe for use on both the Face and Body areas.
- Improve the overall clarity, tone and texture of the skin

The Perfect Derma™ Plus Booster is to be used in conjunction with The Perfect Derma™ Peel. Contains Glutathione, Kojic Acid, TCA, Retinoic Acid, Salicylic Acid, Phenol and a cocktail of vitamins. For post treatment skin care please see our Epionce skin care regiment and Perfect A, Perfect B, and Perfect C.
Microdermabrasion treatments use a minimally abrasive instrument to gently sand your skin, removing the thicker, uneven outer layer. This type of skin rejuvenation is used to treat light scarring, discoloration, sun damage, and stretch marks.
Microdermabrasion helps thicken your collagen, which results in a younger looking complexion. Collagen is a protein in your skin that’s abundant when you’re a child and makes skin appear taut and smooth. Collagen production declines as we age, resulting in looser, uneven skin.
- Improve age spots and black heads.
- Improve hyper pigmentation (patches of darkened skin).
- Exfoliate your skin, resulting in a refreshed appearance.
- Lessen the appearance of stretch marks.
- Reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
- Reduce or eliminate enlarged pores.
- Treat acne and the scars left by acne.

Perfect™ C Cream
Introducing The Perfect C CreamThe Perfect C Cream is a revolutionary cream that has 20% Vitamin C featuring the Gold Standard of vitamin C, tetrahexydecyl ascorbate. The ingredients are: Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethicone/vinyl Dimethicone, Crosspolymer, Cyclomethicone, Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate, Bisabolol.
What Makes The Perfect C Different?
The Perfect C uses a stable, lipid-soluble ester known as tetrahexydecyl ascorbate. What does lipid-soluble mean? It is capable of being dissolved (liquefied) in fat/oil/lipids. What is the difference between oil-based and lipid (oil)-soluble? An oil-based product refers to the type of product emulsion: oil-in-water vs. water-in-oil. For example, a cream is typically an oil-in-water based product. A product base does not refer to ingredient solubility. Oil(lipid)-soluble refers to an ingredient’s dissolvability. For example, salt can only dissolve in water; therefore it is water-soluble.
Why Is It Neccessary to Use Vitamin C in the Form of Ester?
Vitamin C can be delivered in many forms. The Perfect C has chosen to deliver vitamin C in the form of an ester that maintains its stability. Water readily oxidizes vitamin C. An ester creates an environment devoid of water, thus maintaining the stability of the vitamin C. Why is lipid-soluble better than water-soluble in the case of vitamin C? Vitamin C is highly unstable when exposed to light and air. When vitamin C is in a water-soluble form, it is more susceptible to environmental exposure; as a result, it oxidizes more quickly. The nature of its water solubility only allows it to work on the outermost layers of the skin. Because it is so unstable, the water-soluble vitamin C has already started oxidizing by the time it reaches the skin, so a higher percentage is necessary to obtain any beneficial results. Since vitamin C can cause irritation when used topically, water-soluble forms tend to be more irritating because a higher percentage in the formula is needed.
How Does It Work?The Perfect C is formulated with an emphasis on protection of the pure C and delivery into the deeper layers of the skin, using a silicone base to prevent the ester from breaking down. During topical application, two processes take place:
As a result, the following benefits are realized:
- The silicone base evaporates while the ester stays on the skin.
- The ester components split, making the pure vitamin C available for the skin to utilize.
What are the benefits of The Perfect C?
- Less potential for irritation because the C is lipid-soluble.
- Full benefits of the vitamin C percentage used (20%).
- Vitamin C is absorbed deeper into the epidermis than water-soluble C’s.
- Antioxidant Activity
- Provides essential components to assist with collagen synthesis
- Assists with skin brightening and clarifying by enhancing the inhibition of melanogenesis (the process that produces pigment in the skin)
- Delivers pure Vitamin C fifty times better than ascorbic acid
- Penetrates the skin four times better than magnesium ascorbyl phosphate
- Increases collagen
- Treats acne with 80% of patients
- Decreases risks associated with UVA/UVB damage
- Enhances results of sun protectors Protects cells against UVB better than other esters of Vitamin C
- Elongates the effects of The Perfect Peel!!
For best results, use as a maintenance product after The Perfect Peel. Apply The Perfect Vitamin C every morning and evening to face, neck and chest. The skin should be thoroughly cleansed and dried prior to application.
