Using Laser Skin Tightening to Revitalize Your Skin | Informational

Hi guys! I wanted to share a little more informational post with you all today. Skin care and anti aging products/treatment is always something to think about, no matter your age. I’ve noticed a lot more talk about certain anti aging treatments and wanted to share a little more research for anyone asking the same questions as myself.

Your skin is your body’s largest organ. It is also the only organ which is constantly exposed to the outside elements. You might think it is those elements that causes your skin to loosen and sag as you get older, and they certainly are contributing factors. However, no matter how carefully you protect your skin you are bound to suffer from wrinkles and sages eventually. When you do, one option for revitalizing your skin is to book a laser skin tightening appointment. But before you attempt laser skin tightening there are several things you must consider.

Why Skin Tightening with Lasers Works so Well
One thing you need to know is why laser skin tightening is so popular and tends to produce such good results. The reason the procedure works is that the laser beam is able to disrupt skin cells enough to trigger repair responses within the body. Also, the laser beam has an added ability to get existing collagen to tighten, drawing skin cells closer together. Between strengthening the existing collagen and causing more to be produced, the skin becomes tighter over time.

Of course, the effects of laser skin tightening are not always immediately obvious. When you undergo a tightening procedure with medical lasers the healing processes which are triggered can take quite a while to show their full effects. However, the gradual strengthening of your skin after treatment will help to reduce your wrinkles and skin sags.

Having a Laser Treatment Consultation with a Clinician
Prior to making an appointment to have your skin tightened with lasers you must first consult with the skincare clinician. During the consultation the entire procedure will be explained to you, and the clinician will also determine whether or not you are a good candidate for the process. Typically, in order to be a good laser skin tightening candidate you must have mild to moderate wrinkles and not suffer from severe acne or certain other skin conditions. In order to qualify as a good laser treatment candidate your skin should also not be excessively oily because those oils can burn easily when exposed to a laser beam.

Side Effects of Laser Treatments for Wrinkles
When it comes to side effects of laser treatments, the most you should have to worry about is mild swelling. Any redness or swelling should subside within a day or so after the procedure. Your skin may also be extra sensitive for a week or two after treatment, and it may require special protection from the sun. Severe side effects, such as burns, are unlikely because clinicians typically will not perform laser skin tightening on candidates who are at high risk for such side effects.

The Process of Having a Laser Treatment
When you go to your local skincare clinic for a laser treatment you will be told ahead of time how to prepare for the appointment. Typical instructions will include not wearing any perfumes or other skin products on that day. When you arrive, your clinician will use the laser device to treat the skin on the portion of your body which has been designated for treatment. The laser device will heat your skin, but the clinician will use cooling blasts of air to help keep you comfortable throughout the procedure. If you experience any severe discomfort you can tell your clinician right away and he or she will make you more comfortable.

After your initial laser skin tightening appointment you may see some improvement. However, it is unlikely that your skin will improve dramatically right away. Your clinician will tell you ahead of time approximately how many sessions may be required to improve your results to the desired level.

Española Way

I always love how each major city has their own little foreign pockets. Take, for example, Little Italy in New York or China Town in San Fransisco. And here in Miami Beach, we have Española Way. Our little Spanish quarter in the middle of the hustle and bustle.

With the amazing Spanish restaurants, foreign music and Spain’s architecture, it’s like we took a trip back to Spain.

Española Way is definitely one of my favorite little spots in Miami Beach, and a great place to visit if you’re ever this way! Or if you’re just looking for a delicious Nutella filled croissant.

Miami Staycation

Española Way, in Miami Beach, has always been one of my favorite little spots to visit. The pink walls, hidden corridors and Spanish music, really make it feel like you’ve travelled to Europe!

And what better way to experience it, than with a little staycation at the El Paseo hotel! Right in the hustle and bustle, with the cutest little balconies and coffee room, it made for the perfect spot!

A cute little greeting, some yummy biscotti, a fresh cup of coffee, and I felt right at home!

Bells of Holly

Totally living for this bell sleeved strapless top from Tobi!

It’s trendy, it’s easy to wear and it’s perfect for this time of year! Even with these bell sleeves it’s still super simple to throw on a jacket, like this metallic green one.

And of course I had to throw in the shorts for that Floridian style.

Late Summer

One of the great things about living in Florida, despite all of the natural disasters mother earth has been bestowing on us, is the fact that we can enjoy a sunny beach day even in the middle of November. That being said, the swimsuit shopping is never over. And these two suits are such a crazy bargain, I could not pass up the deal.

Itsy Bitsy Yellow Bikini

Found my new favorite bikini color, yellow! Absolutely in love with the fit of this bikini. It can sometimes be a bit of a risk to get bikinis from a company who doesn’t specialize in bikinis. But I’m absolutely thrilled with this one from Romwe and will definitely be purchasing more and saving a lot.

I’m also loving their retro styled sweaters, it may still be blazing hot here in Miami, but it’s never too early to stock up on some cute sweaters.

Lila Nikole Swim Show 2018

Once again I've had the pleasure of walking for the amazing Lila Nikole. She released her new 2018 designs at no better place than Swim Week Miami.
And she had even expanded to men's wear and mommy & me suits!

Of course I had to share some memorable images from the show.

Till next year!
