Blog: How to do a beauty “about face”

Updated: Oct 15, 2022

TRU FORM SKIN LAB is here to help you achieve a skincare about face when it comes to your beauty regimen.

You’ve dieted and exercised to look great and feel healthy…You’ve grabbed up every “revolutionary” skincare product out there, but you’re still unsure how to achieve a beauty “about face “ or complete turnaround to reach your beauty and skin goals. We spend billions annually on a multitude of products and devices to address our concerns about face, beauty, and skincare, it is ironic that so many of us just aren’t getting the results we desire. Let’s discuss some beauty myths…

“The more expensive the serums and masks I purchase, the easier it will be to make my skin beautiful.” FALSE

It is true that a proper skincare regimen can change the integrity and appearance of your skin. Employing a rigorous skincare routine with sunscreen at its helm has its benefits regardless of your age, ethnicity, or past sun exposure. As a sun worshipper, I know first hand the damage too many UV rays can do. And although a healthy lifestyle definitely contributes to better skin, it will take more than luxurious skincare and green juice to do a beauty about face. In addition to sun the, aging itself can cause loses of collagen and elastin; the epidermis (the superficial layer of the skin) loses moisture and the skin looks dry and less supple. The epidermis becomes thicker if sun damaged, while the dermis (deeper layer), thins, losing the ability to hold moisture. As time inches on, fine lines, wrinkles and sagging become more noticeable. We arm ourselves with serums and masks promising to turn back the clock, hoping for an about face for the face. But what the basic chic doesn’t know is that it’ll take a bit more effort than skincare to turn things around, prevent further damage, and perform a complete beauty about face. What works and what doesn’t? At TRU Form Skin Lab, we take pride in offering the most effective evidence based procedures that are all about helping you do a beauty about face. We will take time to design a customized treatment plan that may employ multiple modalities. TRU Form Skin Lab features Hyaluronic Acid dermal fillers Juvederm, Revanesse, Restylane, neurotoxins like Xeomin, Dysport and Botox, and collagen stimulators Bellafill, Radiesse, and Sculptra. Botox and Fillers are strategically placed to rejuvenate and enhance beauty giving the skincare about face you seek. If need be, we can even harness and use the power of your own stem cells via Platelet Rich Plasma to help stimulate elastin and blood vessel production healing the dermis.

“Good moisturizer and face oil is all you need to achieve your beauty about face.” FALSE Moisturizer is sweet icing on the skincare cake, but it’s not powerful enough to elicit a beauty about face. The established “gold standard” of improving skin from the inside out is a product available by prescription called Tretinoin, or Retin-A. When used as prescribed, Retin-A penetrates into the dermis where collagen and elastin reside, encouraging epithelial (skin cell) turnover for improved skin texture, tone, and tightness within a couple months. Retinol is a weaker derivative of Retin A which is converted to Retin A by the skin. It is available over the counter in cream or gel form. Some of these retinols are quite effective, but have different strengths so it’s important to consult with someone with a medical background. In order to enhance the effects of Retin A, Bellafill or Radiesse, in combination with microneedling treatments once per month are essential. If starting a prescription strength retinol, chat with your TRU Form Skin Lab provider to understand how to safely incorporate facials, injectables, and other skin fitness routines simultaneously for beautiful glowing skin. The use of the HydraFacial is another way to achieve your skin care goals. The HydraFacial is all about face perfection and uses a vortex-fusion tech to deeply cleanse, peel, smooth, and improve your skin tone.

“Botox and dermal fillers cannot help improve my overall skin quality and appearance.” FALSE

Botox injections can definitely help you achieve the beauty about face you seek. This magical drug can smooth lines of expression by relaxing the muscles underneath the skin. Reducing the degree of trauma inflicted upon your dermis during the repeated contraction of facial muscles can save you much wrinkling about face. Early botox treatments are termed “baby Botox“ - because we use such small doses, and can be viewed as preventive medicine. Strategically placing Hyaluronic acid about face can diminish the appearance of facial folds and correct volume loss, essentially camouflaging signs of aging, while helping to smooth creases and support underlying ligaments. Collagen stimulating fillers can reduce the appearance of facial trauma caused by acne scars as well as repetitive trauma caused by fine muscle action around the eyes, nose, and mouth.

When performed correctly, injectables can remarkably enhance one’s appearance. Schedule your consult today and let TRU Form Skin Lab help you achieve your skincare about face😘
