Ultrasound Speeds Wound Healing

A recent study using ultrasound therapy on wounds of diabetics and the elderly has shown some very promising results for decreasing time for healing. This will be such a great treatment, especially for those with diabetes, who have poor circulation, with wound infections which sometimes progress into very serious infections.

“Healing times for skin ulcers and bedsores can be reduced by a third with the use of low-intensity ultrasound, scientists from the University of Sheffield and University of Bristol have found.”   – Science Daily

Infrared Light Therapy for Clearer, Sharper Thinking?

I’ve been using Far Infrared Light three to four times a week for the past five years now, together with three other therapies, to give me a non-sugical facelift. I really love my results, and have been reading with great interest about research on additional uses for far infrared light. Knowing it has a positive effect on wound healing and tissue regeneration of the skin, there are now studies looking at deeper light therapy, particularly into the brain, with positive findings.

Derma Firm Illuminator Home Face Life Gadget

“We are applying a technology that’s been around for a while,” says lead investigator Dr. Margaret Naeser, (of the VA Boston Healthcare System),”but it’s always been used on the body, for wound healing and to treat muscle aches and pains, and joint problems. We’re starting to use it on the brain.” [Read more…]

Very Effective Scar Treatment!

Do you have a scar you would like to “erase” from a scratch, cut, acne, surgery, or burn?

Here’s a couple of Before and After photos of two surgical scars that were pretty much “erased” with a simple two product treatment:

Injury Requiring Surgical Repair

Style vs Fashion

Having always thought that being in style was the same as being fashionable, I have learned there is a difference!

zuhair murad  Fashion show 2010 by ƇƠƆŌ ϚĤåŅĒŁStyle Upgrade says that “Fashion is the latest and most admired style in clothes and cosmetics and behavior.”

While Haute Couture, High Fashion, and High Style are all trend setting fashions, Style brings my fashion selections into my choices to create a style all my own. I have noticed that my fashion choices have changed as I have aged, and my body has changed. This doesn’t mean I don’t have style.  Instead, I adapt my style to those changes, and try to project my changing self image into my style. [Read more…]

Are Your Facial Features Disappearing With Age?

Are your facial features disappearing with age? Facial feature definition is an observational tool we subconsciously use in deciding someone’s age, according to a recent study from the Chanel Epidermal and Sensory Research and Investigation Center which studies skin related issues and facial appearance. (See Science Daily for article discussion.)

In one study, (Psychology Prof. Richard) Russell and his team measured images of 289 faces ranging in age from 20 to 70 years old, and found that through the aging process, the color of the lips, eyes and eyebrows change, while the skin becomes darker. This results in less contrast between the features and the surrounding skin – leaving older faces to have less contrast than younger faces.”

Facial Feature Contrast

Basically, our darker features lighten, eyebrows are lightened by hair loss, the intensity of our lip color fades, and our skin tones darken.

DFI Facelift Gadget – Your Frequently Asked Questions Answered

Do facelift gadgets really work? Can I really see results from using a skin toning machine at home? What do they do? What is the best technology to achieve the results I’m looking for? How much do they cost? How often do I need to use them? How much time does it take each day? What kind of results will I get? How long will it take to see results?

These are all great questions! I had the same when I first considered purchasing one.

Here’s what I was looking for when shopping – “Do You Have Ten Minutes for a Facelift”

(Notice how much time I was willing to spend) and here are the results I gained after consistent use for several months:

“Wow! See My Difference!” and 3 Years Later!

Before, 5 months After and Now, 3 Years Later

It’s been 3 1/4 years since I started using my Beauty Gadget, the Derma Firm Illuminator! Three to 4 times a week, consistently, without a week off. It’s definitely a habit now, and yes, I am that concerned (vain) about my appearance as I age.

So…here are my photos to compare with my initial results and see what you think:

How to Fight the 4 Core Influences of Aging

What are the four core influences of aging, how do they affect what we experience physically, and what we see in the mirror as we grow older?

Why does an Internal + External approach to the battle against the visible signs of aging work the best?

Consumers are increasingly seeking “anti-aging” cosmetic products that treat the visible signs of natural and environmental aging, such as wrinkles, lines, sagging, hyperpigmentation and age spots.  The problem is, products that only focus on treating the signs of aging are not proactive or preventative.  This is what sets Apriori Beauty™ apart from the rest – Apriori Beauty sought to take an innovative approach to targeting the causes of aging, not just the symptoms by introducing the Cellular Age Advantage™, a proactive, internal + external approach that utilizes the Nutrient Reservoir™ to address the core causes of cellular aging!

A New Home Treatment Option for Scars

Surgical scars, acne scars, burn scars, cut scars…..most all of us have some type of scar on our body somewhere. Does it bother you? Does it bother you enough to want to do something to diminish it? That’s the question only you can answer.

What is a scar?

“A scar is the body’s natural way of healing and replacing lost or damaged skin. A scar is usually composed of fibrous tissue. Scars may be formed for many different reasons, including as a result of infections, surgery, injuries, or inflammation of tissue. Scars may appear anywhere on the body, and the composition of a scar may vary – appearing flat, lumpy, sunken, or colored. It may be painful or itchy. The final look of a scar depends of many factors, including the skin type and location on the body, the direction of the wound, the type of injury, age of the person with the scar, and his/her nutritional status.”  (From the University of Chicago Medical Library)

There are many options for scar treatment but if you really want something that doesn’t burn or hurt, I highly recommend the Derma Firm Illuminator skin treatment machine. Painless, just massage in circles while you are watching TV for a few minutes each day. I’ve seen a woman who has had 6 children by C-Section, and a Tummy Tuck whose scar is barely visible – so light and soft, she has to point to it for you to notice!

Far Infrared Light is one of the most incredible treatment functions for skin cell rejuvenation – here’s a little more about this option for treating scar tissue:

“Infrared light is a type of electromagnetic radiation emitted by the sun; far infrared light has a wavelength greater than 4 microns. Despite the fact that we cannot see far infrared radiation, it is perceived by thermoreceptors in the skin as heat. Studies have shown that FIR light therapy can stimulate wound healing mechanisms in the skin. Its additional benefits include the following: 1) Skin is warmed, unclogging pores and expanding capillaries. 2) Blood flow increases, helping eliminate toxins associated with aging and fatigue. 3) Mitochondrial stimulation results in increased enzyme activity and metabolism. 4) Promotes the breakdown of cellulite, fat, trapped water, and wastes. 5) Promotes the regeneration of skin tissue. 6) Increases oxygen and nutrient delivery to cells resulting in increased skin vitality. FIR light therapy is one of the 4 functions provided by Apriori Beauty’s Derma Firm Illuminator.”  (From the Apriori Beauty Science Center)

How to Tweak, Update or Overhaul Your Personal Image

It just happens. Your life is busy, time flies by, and the next thing you know you are ambushed by Stacy and Clinton from “What Not to Wear”! Well, almost.

This is when you realize your skin is starting to sag,  gray hairs are springing up, you can’t find your makeup colors at the store because they’re no longer being made, your pants all have elastic waistbands, and your kids cringe when you get out of the car in public. Is this you? This was me. My daughter did send in a request for Stacy and Clinton to work their magic on me. Twice. I don’t need to say anymore!

I kind of lost myself in everyone else’s lives and let my own go.  As time went on, and the kids became more independent, I could see my light at the end of the “mommy” tunnel. I took on a new job, and started a new business. Being back in the “real world” caused me to take stock of my public image, and realize that I needed to make changes in order to be someone people were proud to be around, happy to be seen in public with, and someone my family and colleagues could look up to.

Here are my tips from my tweaks, updates and overhaul over the past couple of years: [Read more…]

I Love My Results!


Worried about what to do about your wrinkles and saggy skin? Want to look younger?

I can say without question or doubt, I love my younger look!

What I see is reduction in wrinkles, “lifting” of my whole face (- doesn’t it look a little slimmer?), and when I’m not smiling the vertical wrinkles around my lips are gone. The )( between my eyebrows is much less visible (hard to see with my bangs) and  I love the way my skin feels all the time now.  Even the visible blood vessels on my cheeks and chin are reduced as the surrounding skin is healthier, providing greater elasticity and support. Without the acids in my daily skin care, I don’t feel like my face is “dry and tight” any longer – a lot more spring and softness!

Here’s what I’m using from Apriori Beauty:

~ Skincare regimen included using  Celloxylin skincare system daily~

~ The Derma Firm Illuminator five nights a week ~

Sugar Beet Crystal/Papaya Enzyme Microscrub three times a week ~

~ Celloxylin MD 20Ex Acid Peel twice a week ~

~ Drinking Lifeoxylin Elixir for internal cellular support ~

WOW!! I am just thrilled with my results!

Thanks for stopping by and “Making My Life Beautiful”!
