August 3rd, 2012
Celebrity skin care guru Joanna Vargas’ perfect skin care secrets are based on the understanding of how skin is structured and functions. This knowledge comes from years in the field and thousands of facials, with all types of skin type. And this is clearly reflected in an anti-aging skin care philosophy that combines the best skin care products with technologically advanced treatments.
In a recently article, Harpers Bazaar said about one of Joanna Vargas’ facials: “The “It’”Facials To Book This Spring”. And if you need any more convincing check out The New York Times article of Ms. Vargas proclaiming her to be The High-Profile Facialist.
Her luxurious face care is designed to inhibit the visible signs of aging and restore essential hyaluronic acid (HA). And if you think anti-aging is something that you don’t need to look at now, then think again. If you are in your 30’s you have mature skin and this is perhaps the best time to start regular spa facials with a customized skin care routine. Truthfully you should have started in your 20s.
The most obvious evidence of maturing skin – wrinkles, generally appear during the late 30’s and 40’s. However, hyaluronic acid and collagen production decreases at a much earlier stage in life. Collagen, from the root kolla -meaning glue- is the substance that holds the body together and keeps its structure. Hyaluronic acid, a prevalent substance throughout the body cushions and lubricates the joints and tissues while supporting columns of elastin and collagen and aiding in regeneration and repair of cells and tissue.
Two scientific advances that have proved effective in inhibiting the breakdown of collagen and assist in enhancing hyaluronic acid production are microcurrent facials and LED light treatments.
Microcurrent facials target problem areas of the face with mild electrical pulses that trigger biochemical functions in the dermis to produce higher levels of hyaluronans and ATP (adenosine triphosphate). This treatment prompts these tissue-regenerating substances to start cell and tissue repair. This non-invasive treatment promotes the effective absorption of the best face care products. It has been shown to lift, tone and firm the muscles for a more youthful appearance.
LED light treatments are equally non-invasive and have no side effects and bring about a renewed sense of health and wellbeing for the entire body. This holistic light therapy has been used to treat muscle and bone atrophy by NASA, as an antibacterial treatment for acne and for the treatment of seasonal affective disorder.
Light- emitting diodes stimulate the body’s ability to synthesize rejuvenating fluids and increase blood circulation.
Both spa treatments increase the skin’s receptivity for topical treatments. While moisturizing the skin cannot remove wrinkles, it does give it smoother and more supple appearance. The FDA has approved hyaluronic acid as a safe and effective active ingredient for supplementing decreased levels in the body. This is an active ingredient in our Vitamin C Face Wash, the greatly reviewed Daily Serum and will aid in developing introduce hyaluronans to the upper layers of the dermis. These large, water- retaining molecules deliver moisture to the epidermis making it more youthful, glowing and flawless.

Massaging the face once or twice a day helps to smooth fine lines. Gently pat your face with the tips of your fingers for about 20 seconds to relax the facial tissues.
