The search for the ultimate Anti-Age products and treatments consumes the beauty industry. Google has over 5.5 million results for anti-aging secrets. With so many options to choose from: Face-lifts, Botox, Special creams, Facial Treatments, Home-made remedies, and more, how do you know which method is the best for you? Where do you start?
By doing some research you will be able to make a more educated decision based on your individual needs and the options available.
What are your Options?
With so many technological advancements, the beauty industry is able to give the youthful look to consumers without going under the knife or injecting chemicals into your body. These advancements in skin care and facial treatments have made it possible to reverse many different skin conditions, including, but not limited to fine lines, wrinkles, acne, pigmentation, slackening of the skin, broken capillaries, age-spots, etc. With the use of this new technology we can take your skin to the next level.
BOTOX is a very common procedure that women and men undergo to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, which can give them a more youthful appearance. But what is BOTOX? BOTOX is a trademark name for the neurotoxic protein, botulinum toxin, which is produced by the barcerium clostridium botulinum. In simple terms, it is a protein that works to relax or paralyze the facial muscles by blocking nerve impulses. The result is that your muscles can no longer contract, so the wrinkles relax and soften. It usually takes two to four days to see cosmetic improvement and the effects tend to last from three to six months. BOTOX is metabolized into our bodies over time, thus continual injections are needed for long lasting results.
It is important that you do your research when considering injections and fillers. There is current research that brings to questioning the possibility of potentially harming side effects in non-injected areas of the body. The protein that is injected in the body can weaken and cause sagging not only in areas where it was injected, but also other areas of the body as well. This raises concern for the potential of other long term side effects.

A few treatments that Paramount DaySpa Salon & Boutique offer are:
Guinot Hydradermie Lift. This ‘work out’ for your muscles creates a lifting effect by toning the complexion, smoothing wrinkles and lifting facial contours. It can be performed all over the face, including the eyes and mouth and also includes the neck. After only one treatment you will notice results and there is no down time.
Virtual Surgery. This intense anti-aging treatment improves the cell’s oxygen intake and skin regeneration, providing immediate and cumulative “face-lifting” results. A fiber mask that applied to the face to seal and aid in the delivery of medical grade products, re-balancing the skin’s natural renewal process, tightening and firming the facial contour.
Dermasweep. State of the art non-invasive exfoliation and skin resurfacing treatment that stimulates blood flow, which in turn stimulates collagen formulation thus firming and toning the skin; cleans pores, and removes skin debris. This type of exfoliation improves pigmentation, acne scarring, sun damage, and forces the cells to turn over, resulting in a smooth, even complexion.
What is the difference between professional and non-professional skin care?
Professional Skin Care can be found at professional salons and must be recommended by a professional esthetician. Non-professional Skin Care is mainly found in department and drug stores and is sold by a sales person. What does this mean to you? The skin has many layers and your professional or non-professional products will affect it differently as they work on different levels of your epidermis (skin).
Your skin has many layers, the top is the epidermal layer and the deepest is the dermal layer. According to Yon-Ka educator, Sheila Nielsen, professional product is allowed by the FDA to cause a reaction. When skin care causes a reaction it creates a change in the dermal layer and non-professional products are not allowed by the FDA to cause a reaction. Therefore, non-professional products will hydrate, tighten, and firm the top epidermal layer of the skin, but in a few days when that dead layer of skin sloughs off, you are back at the beginning again needing to re-hydrate, re-tighten, and re-firm. It is a never ending cycle. To see long lasting results you need to correct your concerns on the dermal layer, where the root of the problem lies, so eventually your skin reaches a level of maintenance and prevention.
