Rodan + Fields AMP MD Micro-Exfoliating Roller

Joseph Coupal - Monday, February 24, 2014

Are you ready to roll your skin concerns away? You can with the Rodan + Fields AMP MD Micro-Exfoliating Roller.

Many of our clients with scarring, rough skin, or wrinkles will come to us for peels and laser treatments but now we have an additional treatment that is quick, effective, and getting rave reviews from Allure, InStyle, the Today Show, and The Ellen Degeneres Show. The treatment? Derma Rolling; also known as micro needling.

Micro needling is a non-ablative procedure (leaves the surface of the skin intact) that exfoliates, stimulates collagen, improves blood circulation, and allows for skin care products to penetrate more deeply. Skin looks and feels smoother even after just one use. Additionally, micro needling improves the appearance of scarring and wrinkles with continued use. In the office, the procedure takes about 20-30 minutes depending on the size of the treated area. You can have a treatment here in the office but we also retail kits from Rodan + Fields for home care.

The Rodan + Fields AMP MD Micro-Exfoliating Roller achieves professional results at home with very little downtime. The Derma Roller is available in a number of Rodan + Fields retail kits and can be purchased on its own. What makes the Rodan + Fields AMP MD Micro-Exfoliating Roller stand out from other micro needling treatments, is its ease of use and our easy shipping system—you don’t have to worry about your favorite product being out of stock because the AMP MD Micro-Exfoliating Roller is shipped directly to you.

What is Sugar Doing to your Skin?

Joseph Coupal - Monday, February 10, 2014

By: Mary Kelley

Everyone knows that sugar can be harmful to your waist line but did you know that sugar can also damage your skin? This article from Skin Inc. explains how an overabundance of sugar in the body can lead to sugar molecules and protein molecules combining in a process called cross-linking. The new sugar proteins are called Advanced Glycation End Products (AGEs). Our bodies do not recognize AGEs and will send antibodies to fight them. This results in inflammation and because AGEs gravitate towards the collagen and elastin in our skin, our faces are adversely affected by the inflammation.

What can you do to fight the signs of aging due to glycation? Use products specifically designed to fight damage caused by AGEs such as our product of the month, A.G.E Interrupter by Skinceuticals. This product combines blueberry extract (a powerful antioxidant), phytosphingosine (an anti-bacterial lipid that has anti-inflammatory properties), and Proxylane (a patented anti-aging ingredient that increases skin density and firmness while stimulating collagen).

A.G.E Interrupter should be used morning and night, after cleansing and before adding moisturizer. Perfect for dry and sensitive skin, this anti-aging treatment is a powerful way to fight the signs of early aging due to glycation.

Dream Spa Medical has added two facials to their Menu of Services

Joseph Coupal - Monday, February 03, 2014

The Purification Facial

The Purification Facial is perfect for clients who have oily skin, clogged pores, or occasional breakouts. Clogged pores are extracted and we use a high frequency machine to prevent future breakouts. This facial ends with a hydrating masque and clients leave with healthier, refreshed skin.

The Macro Express Facial

The Macro Express Facial combines mechanical exfoliation with a soothing masque for ultimate smoothness. This is the perfect treatment if your skin is dull from the harsh winter weather.

Waxing with No Breakouts; a New Addition

Joseph Coupal - Friday, January 31, 2014

By: Mary Kelley

I am very excited about Dream Spa Medical’s latest service! We are adding waxing to our treatment menu! Waxing can be performed on almost all skin types and is perfect for our clients who may not benefit from laser hair removal. We can wax anywhere that we would normally laser (legs, underarms, backs, chins, bikinis) but waxing can treat one area that laser cannot: the eyebrows. Imagine coming in for a treatment and being able to shape your brows in the same visit. Dream Spa Medical is dedicated to providing quality services to our clients and this new addition is not an exception.

We carry the luxurious Lycon wax. Based out of Australia, Lycon has become world-renowned for their dedication to creating high-end wax products that contain soothing ingredients to reduce inflammation and discomfort. Dream Spa Medical uses both a hard and a strip wax from Lycon.

We use Lycon’s LycoJET in lavender as our hard wax. LycoJET is thinner than most hard waxes so it heats up at a lower temperature and is formulated with soothing lavender, making it perfect for sensitive areas. This wax can remove hair that is as short as 1 millimeter.

This wax is great for sensitive skin but is also very strong and does not break, making it perfect for clients who do not want to use strip wax on larger areas of the body.

For clients who prefer strip wax, we use LycoTec strip wax. This amazing wax can be used on large or small areas and is perfect for sensitive skin. LycoTec strip wax adheres to the skin and can remove hair as short as 2 millimeters long. It is formulated with coconut oil and titanium dioxide to leave your skin smooth and irritation-free.

Every waxing treatment is followed up by a high frequency treatment to minimize redness and prevent breakouts. Some tips for a successful wax:

  • Do not shave the treated area for about 7 days to allow for proper hair growth
  • Avoid the sun before and after each treatment to reduce irritation
  • Do not use retinol products for a week before waxing on the face
  • Accutane users should consult their doctor before waxing, most aestheticians ask that their clients have stopped using Accutane at least 6 months before waxing but it is always best to check with your doctor.
  • Also, always follow up your wax with a high frequency treatment to reduce redness and prevent post-waxing break outs.

Our aestheticians are excited to provide waxing and love our Lycon waxes. Schedule your appointment today to see how wonderful our waxing services can be.

Custom Tan without Harmful UV Rays

Joseph Coupal - Monday, January 20, 2014

Does your skin have the winter blahs? Do you have a special event coming up and want to add some color to your skin? Don’t turn to self tanners that will turn you orange or to a harmful tanning bed that will age your skin….call Dream Spa Medical for a professional spray tan using Aviva Labs Organic Tanning Solution. This organic-based line works with the existing melanin (the chemical that causes you to tan) in your skin to create a perfect, natural looking tan.

Our tanning specialists use a hand-held sprayer to ensure even coverage and will work with you to pick the perfect color—we can even blend different shades to create a customized look. Avivia is a wonderful, water-based line that is perfect for every skin tone.

Call Dream Spa Medical now to schedule your appointment.

Botox Day and Wrinkle Filler Special

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, January 14, 2014

Another year has come and gone but you can still turn back the clock with Dream Spa Medical’s Botox and Juvaderm specials on January 13th and January 16th. We are offering 15% off of all Botox treatments and a buy 1, get the 2nd at 50% special on Juvaderm filler.

Botox® is used to treat frown lines around the eyes and forehead. Botox® works by relaxing the muscles that contract when you frown. Typically, Botox® takes 2-7 days to take full effect after injections and results last up to 3 months.

Juvéderm® is the smooth gel filler that your doctor or nurse uses to instantly smooth away wrinkles around your mouth and nose. With just one treatment, you'll get smooth and natural-looking results that last up to a year. As you age, your skin changes. For example, it reduces production of a naturally hydrating substance called hyaluronic acid (HA). Over time, the loss of HA in your skin results in facial wrinkles and folds, like those "parentheses" lines around your mouth. Juvéderm™ injectable gel replaces the HA your skin has lost, bringing back its volume and smoothing away facial wrinkles and folds.

Come in and treat yourself to one or both of these amazing specials. If you are getting a Botox® treatment, ask to schedule a HydraFacial and add on a DermaBuilder treatment before your Botox® treatment. The HydraFacial is a perfect treatment for the winter because the treatment exfoliates and hydrates the skin, leaving behind anti-aging serums to keep skin healthy. The DermaBuilder add-on is an additional $50 to the HydraFacial and contains muscle-relaxing peptides that will keep your skin smooth for up to 5 days while Botox® takes its full effect.

Botox and Filler Promotion for the New Year

Last Minute Primping

Joseph Coupal - Monday, December 23, 2013


It’s the most wonderful time of the year…holiday parties, family dinners, shopping, snow shoveling, and getting ready for a new year. Did I saw wonderful? I meant busy.  Between work, home, shopping, parties, and everything else, most of us forget to schedule in some time for ourselves. Want to make sure you look great for all of your upcoming events and still have time to stick to your busy schedule?

Visit Dream Spa Medical for all of your last minute skin care needs. We have two treatments that are fast and perfect for making your skin look its best this time of year:


Our HydraFacial gently exfoliates dead skin while removing impurities and, most importantly, infuses the skin with hydrating and anti-aging serums.  This treatment is usually performed in under 30 minutes and there is no recovery time. Unlike a chemical peel, there is no recovery time with a HydraFacial. You could have the treatment on your way to a holiday party and enjoy compliments on your glowing skin. Additionally, the HydraFacial is a great treatment to have just before a Botox treatment! Make sure to ask for the DermaBuilder add-on if you are getting Botox. The DermaBuilder has bio-peptides to smooth out the muscles in the face and help maintain a smooth look while you are waiting for the Botox to activate.

Our Derma-Glow

The DermaGlow facial combines laser therapy with the revolutionary HydraFacial to increase the tone, texture, and clarity of the skin and stimulate collagen. The Medlight laser rejuvenates the skin using patented Photo Acoustic Technology.

Clients may experience minor sensation as a result of the laser—most clients describe the feeling as a mild tingling. After the laser treatment, we use the HydraFacial machine to infuse powerful antioxidants into the skin for added rejuvenation. An added benefit is that vellous hair, commonly known as peach fuzz, is removed during this treatment. Results can be seen after just one treatment so come in for the Dermaglow and shine at your event.

Call 339-502-8070 or e-mail to book your holiday glow facial.

Is your skin “peel-ready”? The answer might surprise you.

Joseph Coupal - Monday, December 16, 2013

By: Mary Kelley

I spoke with Alexis Robertson, an Educator for Image Skincare, about the best way a client can prepare her skin before a chemical peel. Those of us “in the know” have been told to avoid retinol products for at least 48 hours, to not use an exfoliant for a few days, and to stay out of the sun. But, that isn’t enough, according to Alexis; we need to make sure to have 5 essential home care products to prep our skin and we also need to make sure that we use these 5 essential products for at least one month before our skin is peel ready. She calls this a 30 day facial rejuvenation program.

Why 30 days? On average, our skin cycles into new cells every 30 days. This cycle depends on how old you are, what type of sun damage you have, etc. but 30 days is enough time to prepare your skin with the right products at home and get the most out of your chemical peels here in the office.

So, what do you need for in your homecare routine for the 30 day facial rejuvenation program?

  1. An antioxidant to protect skin health. You should apply antioxidants through serums or crèmes, anything that will stay on your skin for a long period of time. Many cleansers will boast antioxidants among their ingredients but a cleanser does not stay on your face for very long.
  2. Sunscreen to protect the skin’s elastin (an elastic protein in the skin’s tissue helps skin keep its shape). Dream Spa recently posted about the importance of sunscreen. Performing a peel on recently sun damaged skin will only damage the skin more. Also, Alexis told us that chemical sunscreens in foundation can cut through physical sunscreens—making the products less effective. So, if you are going to use a foundation with added SPF, make sure you use a chemical sunscreen or chose a foundation without added sunscreen.
  3. A Tyrosinase inhibitor. Tyrosinase plays a part in the creation of melanin (pigment). A tyrosinase inhibitor is more commonly called a pigment regulator or lightening serum. These serums block the production of new hyperpigmentation and help reduce the appearance of existing hyperpigmentation.
  4. A Glycolic or other Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA). AHA’s thin the top layer of dead skin and allows home care products and peels to penetrate more deeply and, therefore, be more effective. If glycolic is too strong of an AHA for your skin, consider using a product with lactic acid. Lactic acid can be gentler on sensitive skin types.
  5. A Retinol. Retinol increases cellular turnover and increases healing. Retinol also works with tyrosinase inhibitors to bring existing pigment to the surface. You don’t have to go to your doctor for a retinol cream. The retinol crèmes carried by professional med spa’s, like Dream Spa Medical, have the appropriate amount of retinol for your skin.

Unsure how to work these 5 products into your home care? Do you think that you have some, or all of these, already? Schedule a free consultation with one of our dedicated skin care specialists to go over your current home care routine, get advice on new products, and discuss what chemical peels are right for you. As an added bonus, Dream Spa Medical extends a 25% discount when you buy a new product.

Can’t wait 30 days for a facial? Don’t worry. We also offer many facials that will leave your skin refreshed and glowing—no prep time needed.
