How to Get Your Skin Summer Ready

June has arrived and we know you’re looking forward to the beach, family festivities, and cookouts. That means it’s time to get your skin summer ready. Your skin conditions can vary greatly with the seasons, and we are here to get you through the humid, hot, and sunny parts of summer so you have healthy, fresh skin.

But how do you get your skin ready for summer? Here are my 8 summer skin care tips…
Timeless SilkPeel1. Get a SilkPeel Microdermabrasion. This exfoliates your skin and removes excess oil, build-up, and ruddiness for a fresh, smooth resurfacing. It’s the perfect no-downtime treatment to also smooth the skin on your chest and back so you can wear that new strapless maxi-dress.

2. Why are you still shaving? Get laser hair removal and stop worrying about your bikini line, legs, and underarms every time swim suit season starts. You don’t need to shave anymore. You don’t need to wax anymore. After several laser hair removal treatments hair growth will be reduced up to 95%.

 

 

 

Botox for Men3. Botox is virtually painless and takes just about 15 minutes. I use Botox on my patients to soften crow’s feet, reduce expression lines, and give a natural-looking brow lift. At your next appointment, ask us how Botox can also treat wrinkles on your neck and reduce acne flare-ups.

4. Embarrassed by dark spider veins on your legs and arms during the summer months? Zap them away in 15-30 minutes with a laser vein treatment. It may take a couple of treatments, so the sooner you can do the treatment, the better.

 

 

 

Clarisonic Brush

5. Wash your face every morning and every night. And do it with your Clarisonic Brush. During the summer it’s especially important to use your Clarisonic as it washes away impurities and pollution from the humid, summer heat. Your products will work better and your skin will thank you for the deep clean!

Many of my patients need a creamier facial cleanser in the winter and a lighter moisturizer in the summer. Let us help you figure out how to keep your skin glowing with your own customized “skin script”.

7.  Wear Sunscreen!  Sunscreen is such a vital part of your skin care regimen all year long, every day.  It dramatically reduces the signs of aging and your risk of developing skin cancer.  It’s especially important in the summer as we are spending more times outside at cookouts, enjoying dinner on the patio, and attending outdoor weddings.  We offer different kinds of sunscreens so your skin type and preference will be covered!

8.  Have you tried Latisse, yet?  What are you waiting for?  Imagine going to the pool and not worrying about putting on waterproof mascara… because your own lashes are darker, longer, and fuller.

Favorite Services for Men Make the Best Father’s Day Gifts

At Timeless Skin Solutions, we know that finding the right Father’s Day gift is more than important, so we’ve put together this list to make your shopping just a little easier.

  • The Adventurer:

    An active outdoor lifestyle led to unwanted sun damage – hear Steve’s story.

    This dad does it all – he’s running from golfing to soccer practice, to the backyard to fire up the grill. All this outdoor living is great for his health but it may have left it’s mark in the form of brown spots and uneven skin tone. No problem, treat him to a series of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) to remove unwanted brown spots and reverse sun damage, while offering the added benefit of no downtime.

  • The Entrepreneur: Men in business are often the first to admit that looking good is important. With the market being what it is, the competition can be quite steep. More men than ever before are aiming to refresh their image and give them an edge over younger candidates. A gift certificate of any value will help get this father in question on his way to a youthful look. Some services he might be interested in are Botox to erase lines, facial filler to restore lost facial volume, laser hair removal to tidy the neck area (and cut down on morning shave time), or a light chemical peel to add a youthful glow to the skin just before an interview or important meeting.
  • The Wine Connoisseur: This guy clearly understands the importance of antioxidants. If he votes Napa Valley for the vacation spot each year, we recommend SkinMedica’s TNS Essential Serum and/or SkinMedica’s TNS Ultimate Daily Moisturizer with SPF20. Both products boast powerful antioxidants at a medical-grade fine enough to penetrate the skin’s cells and bring about serious protection from free radicals.  With these products, this dad will be just like a fine wine—he’ll only get better with age.

At the end of the day, all of the fathers who have made our lives special deserve to be pampered. Stop by Timeless Skin Solutions or give us a call (614-799-5100) before the fast-approaching weekend and we’ll help you pick out the perfect Father’s Day gift for the special dad in your life.

Columbus Botox and Dysport: Experience Counts

Looking for a Botox or Dysport Provider?finding the right botox and dysport provider at timeless skin solutions

While an injection of Botox or Dysport isn’t surgery, it’s still very important to select a provider that has loads of experience.

Making sure those injections get where they need to go demands a real familiarity with the muscles in the face and how the two relax those muscles.

Platinum Plus

Dr. Carol Clinton, Gail Hogan and patient Taylor recently discussed how you want a provider that’s performing a lot of these procedures.

Timeless Skin Solutions is one of the top 3 percent of Botox providers in the country and has earned the Platinum Plus designation.

Clinton is often called upon by fellow providers to share her techniques.

It’s in The Way You Move

“Almost everybody has an asymmetrical face, ” Clinton said.

“Some people have more: some people have less. So you have to know where you’re putting the Botox to see how the person’s face moves.”

Easy Does It

An experienced provider will be able to quickly and virtually painlessly get the injectable exactly where it needs to go.

Taylor said her apprehension about needles faded quickly.

“I couldn’t even really feel it, honestly.

“I’d definitely do it again.”

Clinton said when done correctly, getting Botox or Dysport is less uncomfortable than a hair trim.

“It’s not as bad as getting your hair pulled when you get it cut,” she said.

Columbus Eyelash Lengthening Is Just The Beginning: The Eyes Have It

Columbus Ohio Eye Treatments Run The Gamuteye treatment at timeless skin solutions

It’s one of the most commonly asked questions around here:
“What can I do to improve the appearance of my eyes?”

We’ve got a whole bunch of options for you.

Dr. Carol Clinton and Gail Hogan recently chatted about what’s available to make real progress in eye appearance.

Let’s Start with Those Lashes

“As we age our lashes are lighter, thinner and this product helps them grow longer, thicker and darker,” said Clinton.

Latisse!

An easy, once-a-day application along the upper lash line will net you results you’ll start to see in about a month.

“After four months you’ll be amazed at what you see,” Clinton said.

It’s a prescription, so keep in mind you’ll need to discuss side effects and the like with our staff.

Among our offerings are:

  • Obagi ELASTIderm Eye Gel and Cream
  • Obagi Vitamin C 5 Percent
  • SkinMedica Eye Repair
  • SkinMedica Illuminating Eye Cream
  • SkinMedica Line Refine
  • SkinMedica Uplifting Eye Serum

The Power Play

“There are bigger power players like the Opal that can infuse the products,” said Clinton.

The Opal produces 7500 vibrations a minute that allow products such as the small included Clarisonic Sea Serum to really get into skin.

Patient Care Coordinator Mary Beth swears by the combo of the Opal and the Obagi Vitamin C 5 Percent.

Don’t Forget Procedures

Botox and Dysport are the standard for easing the muscles around the eyes and minimizing wrinkles and crow’s feet.

We can also plump up areas with Restylane and Juvederm.

The Pearl laser around the eye is great for overall skin improvement – especially resurfacing.

Let’s not forget the Laser Genesis for more youthful skin around the eye.

And, Ultherapy’s here, too. It can make a marked improvement by lifting the brow area.

A Tisket, a Basket … That Promises Great Skin

What’s Your Favorite Charity?timeless skin solutions donates to big brothers big sisters in columbus

For Patient Care Coordinator Mary Beth, it’s been a 27-year dedication to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Ohio.

“We were so young,” she said. “We got involved before we had children.”

She said a friend talked her and her husband into volunteering for the organization with a little bit of trepidation.

“We’re 23! We can barely take care of ourselves!”

Her misgivings quickly faded and the personal rewards from volunteering were wonderful, she said.

From Volunteer to Parent

Mary Beth soon had her own kids but got such joy out of helping out, she continued her relationship with the organization that is one of the largest – if not THE largest – Big Brothers Big Sisters groups in the country.

This year is no exception and Mary Beth and her husband will be donating jewelry for an auction slated to be held Saturday during the sold-out Taste of Class for Kids.

Dr. Carol Clinton and Timeless Skin Solutions are getting in on the act this year with a donation of their own.

A Total Facial Rejuvenation Package worth more than $2,000 including Latisse, Juvederm, Botox and Obagi products will be up for bid during a silent auction at the event.

Here’s Why We’re Involved

According to the Big Brothers Big Sisters website,

“Children need adult friends to help guide them through life’s many obstacles. Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Ohio has a rich history of nurturing friendships between caring adult volunteers and children.

“For 75 years, Big Brothers Big Sisters has made a difference in the lives of thousands of Central Ohio youth through its mentoring and camping programs.”

Housewives of Columbus for Real: Botox, Dysport

Botox and Dysport for The Rest of Us

We get it.

“I Don’t Want to Look Crazy”

We want you to be comfortable in the skin you’re in.

Significant improvements can be made with Botox and Dysport that don’t mean radical changes or frozen, permanently surprised looks.

Some Tips to Make Sure Your Botox or Dysport Looks Great

Select well – Be steadfast in picking a provider that’s experienced in Botox or Dysport. Be sure the practice bends over backwards to answer your questions and addresses ANY concerns you may have.

Dr. Carol Clinton is one of the top Botox injectors in the nation and is routinely called upon by other physicians to teach them her technique.

Be clear - Make sure you and your provider are on the same page when it comes to what results you want.

Let us know you are seeking a natural look and not something that seems too “done.” 

Keep those lines open - Let your provider know your satisfaction level following your treatment. If you keep in touch, they can maintain or improve your appearance at future visits.

We offer a free follow-up visit two or three weeks out from your initial visit to make sure you’re doing well and can tweak the procedure if need be.

Buzzwords: Bro-tox

Columbus “Brotox”

You may have heard rumblings in the news about “Bro-tox” — Botox for men.  At Timeless Skin Solutions, we’re not interested in clever titles, but we have noticed a trend in men getting more botox.

Amidst sporting event tickets, power tools, and ties, it seems men on the “nice list” found something else wrapped up under their Christmas trees this year: Botox.  Good Morning columbus botox for men at timeless skin soutionsAmerica recently did a segment revealing the demand for wrinkle-free skin amongst men.  The statistics support the stories that GMA found: last year more than 300,000 men in the United States got Botox.

Some of these 300,000 men were injected right here at Timeless Skin Solutions. We also offer Dysport, a competing product that does the same thing: get rid of wrinkles and fine lines caused by muscle movement. We like to think of Dysport and Botox like Pepsi and Coke: similar products but some people have a preference.

If the man in your life is unhappy with their fine lines and wrinkles, go ahead and send them in. Let them know they’re not alone and that our world class injectors, Dr. Clinton and Allyson Sterling, will be happy to refresh their looks.
