 Rejuvenize Peel is an advanced formulation of peeling agents, with a built-in anti-irritant and penetration enhancer that provides controlled exfoliation of the uppermost damaged layers of the skin to reveal fresher and healthier skin. Provides predictable results with minimal down time.

Enhance The Texture Of Your Skin With Microdermabrasion

 The Bellanina blog101 helps to explain the benefits of microdermabrasion.  Read about how Chenal Skin Care can rejuvenate your skin with a microderm.

Microdermabrasion may sound like a scary procedure to undergo but in actuality it may be a wonderful alternative for those seeking a facial rejuvenation without going under the knife. More commonly referred to as microderm, this procedure is a non invasive way to remove the uppermost layer of dead skin cells from the face, neck, and decollete.  At Chenal Skin Care we utilize a mechanical mechanism (such as crystals or diamond tips) and a small vacuum to clean up the removed skin cells.

Exfoliation is a natural process undergone by the skin and although it occurs throughout our entire life span, the rate slows down considerably once we reach our thirties. Dead skin cells need to be shed by the body in order for new, healthy cells to reach the surface. As this process slows sometimes dead skin cells will cling to the surface and prevent those new skin cells from taking their place. Over time this will begin to form fine lines and wrinkles as dead cells accumulate on the surface. Microdermabrasion removes this outermost layer of the epidermis to get rid of this build up, allowing new cells to surface and improving circulation at the same time.

There are many benefits to microdermabrasion that can make it an ideal alternative to more drastic cosmetic procedures. By removing dead skin cells your skin will appear smoother, more even in tone and feel healthier. Microdermabrasion can help minimize the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and acne scars. After undergoing treatment, skin care products will be able to penetrate the surface much better and be more effective to help maintain healthy, glowing skin.

Call and make your appointment for a microdermabrasion before the holidays get here.  Also there is a special going on for Dysport for the holidays...a $50 rebate....call 223-4044 for an appointment.  You will have glowing skin for the holiday events coming up.  Thanks!!  Virginia Licensed Aesthetician

New Season....New Face

 As the seasons change and leave us so quickly, our skin's elasticity, and collagen production seem to go with them...but there is always help with a good aesthetician, custom skin care program, and products with integrity.

October brings us a new fresh season.  We look forward to the crisp air and the holidays approaching.  It is a great time to think about refreshing your skin as well.  Chenal Skin Care has many services and products to help give your skin a fresh look.
One must be proactive in their skin anti-aging regimen to maintain a more youthful look.  One of my favorite blogs Bellanina101 shares the following about maintaining healthy skin:

When we are young our skin is taught, elastic and naturally firm. Youthful skin carries a natural glow and smooth texture that many women mourn the loss of as they age. Beautiful and healthy looking skin is not a gift for just the young, but the young at heart. It is for people who know that age is just a number and not a reflection of who you “should” be.

The key to beautiful skin in your mature years is by understanding what problems to look for and using products designed for your skin. As we age, our skin loses some of its natural elasticity, decreases collagen production and the regeneration of new skin cells begins decrease. This can lead to fine lines and wrinkles developing around the eyes, cheeks and mouth as well as sagging tissue in the cheeks and neck. All these problems develop slowly over time and can sometimes have subtle effects at first but over time their accumulative damage can be significant.

Sagging Tissue
The loss of collagen and elasticity is a battle because you are not only fighting Mother Nature, but simple gravity as well. After years of staying tight on its own, your skin may require a little “boost” to stay firm and toned. Try a product that is specially designed to target this problem and boost collagen production. Although the effects may not be entirely reversible, they can be certainly minimized.
Stay as beautiful as you want for as long as you want by taking control of your skin care routine! Skin care is not just a science, it is an art that requires patience and understanding to master. Study your skin care products carefully and examine your needs. Consult with an aesthetician for more great tips and advice about what products are available to keep you looking your most fabulous every day!

Virginia Nelson, licensed aesthetician at Chenal Skin Care Center can lead you to a fresh start this season with the TNS Recovery Complex.  Begin rejuvenation with this serious skin cell therapy.  TNS contains NouriCel-MD growth factors discovered through wound healing research.  Clinically proven to reduce the visible signs of aging.  You will see a dramatic improvement in lines and wrinkles, and notice a more even skin tone, age spots diminish, and skin becomes firmer.  Take control and begin your skin rejuvenation.  You will love the gift of confidence healthy looking skin gives you, just in time for the holidays.  Call me for a free skin consultation at 223-4044.  Thank you, and remember:  "You can have beautiful skin too."   Virginia

Have You Had Your Retin A Today?

Have You Had Your Retin- A Today?

Reduce Wrinkles And Fine Lines
Come Into Chenal Skin Care Center
Get Your Retin -A For Today

Many anti-wrinkle and skin rejuvenation products contain retinol, a form of vitamin A. Many people do not know there is a difference between retinol and Retin-A. Retin-A is tretinoin (or retinoic acid). Retinol does not have the same direct effect on the skin, as Retin-A. When retinol is exposed to air during storage or use, much of it oxidizes before it converts to retinoic acid. Therefore less people respond to retinol creams than the Retin-A (tretinoin or retinoic acid). So What is Right for Your Skin? Retin- A (tretinoin) appears to be better at reducing wrinkles than even the best retinol formulations, especially the OTC products. Tretinoin users who do experience skin irritation or chronic peeling can reduce the concentration and/or frequency of application. If that does not help then you need to consider trying a retinol product.

At Chenal Skin Care Center, the aestheticians Vicky Crook and Virginia Nelson believe in the benefits of Tretinoin. We sell several different strengths. We start our clients on .05% in the beginning and then as tolerated they move up to the .1%. We also sell Obagi's Refissa .05%, their version of Renova, which contains an emollient that softens and smooths the skin minimizing irritation. For some clients depending on their sensitivity level, we start them on Retinol 30, or 60 in the beginning. Call and make an appointment to get your "A" today. Let's us help you get your skin in shape for the fall season. Thanks Virginia Nelson

Want something dramatic! But not more creams!!

But I Really Want Something Dramatic, Not More Creams!

Maintaining a regular routine will be important no matter which route you decide on but if you are looking for something more dramatic that doesn’t involve surgery, there are options! Have you considered a facelift massage series? Not quite a facial, not just a massage but an innovative combination that stimulates the skin and more importantly the muscles beneath the skin.

A facelift massage typically requires a series of 6 (ideally 12) treatments that is designed to stimulate the collagen production and renew the former elasticity of the skin, while smoothing the fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, mouth and neck. It is a relaxing treatment that takes typically an hour to complete.
The Bellanina Facelift Massage is a wonderful example of this revolutionary technique. Inspired by treatments used during the stars in Hollywood’s glamour days, the Bellanina Facelift Massage will rejuvenate the skin while soothing the mind and senses. Bellanina practitioners are available around the United States and can work with clients to target individual concerns and needs.

I love what this article says (Bellanina101 blog) about the fact that a Bellanina Facelift Massage (BFM) is not quite a facial and not quite a massage..it is really the combination of the two. Call me Virginia Nelson, a BFM practitioner in Little Rock AR. Come and enjoy this treatment that is now available at Chenal Skin Center. Remember, you can have beautiful skin too!!!! Virginia
