Ready to Get Really Great Skin?

Ready to Get Really Great Skin?

Do you get facials regularly? Do you see results? The results of the average facial typically last about four weeks, which means you either need to book another facial to keep looking great or run the risk of looking flat. Are you ready for something a little more potent than a facial, but with long-lasting results? If so, it may be time to try micro needling from Innovations Medical.

What Is Micro Needling?
Micro needling is a skin-rejuvenation procedure that uses tiny needles to create punctures in the skin.

Erase Skin Damage

Erase Skin Damage

Do you miss the skin of your youth? If you're mourning the days of a clear complexion without wrinkles, lines, acne scars and age spots, you don't have to wax nostalgic anymore as you look at pictures from days gone by. You have another option to restore your skin to its youthful and wrinkle-free appearance: a PRP facial from Innovations Medical that can help you achieve your goals.

What Is PRP?
PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma. To get PRP, a small amount of your blood (about the same amount as what is taken for lab testing at your annual checkup) is drawn and the PRP is spun and separated from the rest of the blood cells. What remains is dark red plasma full of powerful platelets.

Make Facials a Regular Part of Skin Care

Make Facials a Regular Part of Skin Care

When was your last facial? If you can't remember, it has probably been too long! Facials and other skin-rejuvenation treatments aren't meant just for relaxation or a once-in-a-while treat; skin-rejuvenation treatments also play an essential role in the health of your skin. Innovations Medical offers facials and many high-quality skin-rejuvenation treatments to keep your skin healthy and looking great!

How Often Should I Schedule a Facial?
We recommend you have a facial at least every four to six weeks. While this schedule may seem like a lot, this is the perfect schedule to have facials or skin-rejuvenation treatments. This is the average time it takes for your skin cells to go through a complete cycle from new cell to dead cell ready to be exfoliated. Dead skin cells on the surface of your skin make your face look dull, dirty and older. Dead skin cells, along with environmental pollutants, can also clog the pores, causing blemishes and acne.

Fall Into Flawless Skin

Fall Into Flawless Skin

Temperatures are dropping in North Texas, which means fall is slowly making its way across the state. All of Dallas-Fort Worth is getting ready for pumpkin spice everything, Cowboys football and the State Fair. Fall is also a perfect time for a chemical peel or other skin treatment from Innovations Medical Center.

Fall is an excellent time for skin rejuvenation for a few reasons. First and foremost, you probably caught a few rays this summer and may have forgotten sunscreen once or twice. As a result, you may have signs of sun damage, like sunspots and freckles. A skin rejuvenation procedure like Fraxel Laser can reverse these signs, leaving your skin tone even this season.

Timing your treatments in the fall also makes sense because the sun's rays are not as strong during the latter part of the year. You also have a longer period to recover before the UV levels get to full strength again in the spring. This longer recovery time is beneficial for you because skin-rejuvenating treatments like chemical peels and many lasers slough off the outermost layers of the skin, leaving new skin that is tender and photosensitive.

The Mask of Pregnancy: Melasma and Its Effect on the Skin

The Mask of Pregnancy: Melasma and Its Effect on the Skin

The skin condition melasma is a hyper pigmentation skin disorder impacting over 5 million Americans, according to the International Dermal Institute. Melasma was brought into the spotlight earlier this year when ABC News chief meteorologist Ginger Zee revealed that she has melasma during a segment on Good Morning, America.

The disorder affects women more frequently than men; the American Academy of Dermatology estimates that just 10 percent of melasma sufferers are men.

Zee developed the skin condition while pregnant with her son. Melasma is a common skin problem that causes the skin to develop gray or brown patches. The condition is brought on by prolonged sun exposure or changes in hormones brought on by pregnancy, menopause and the use of birth control and is often referred to as the mask of pregnancy.

Don't Skimp on Skin Care

Don't Skimp on Skin Care

A British woman found out that cheaper isn’t always better, especially when it comes to getting dermal fillers. The woman took advantage of an offer for discount lip injections advertised on social media by an unregulated and unlicensed salon and ended up with serious complications. While we know everyone loves a bargain, injectables and skin care are not where you want to go cheap. Dr. Johnson is a board-certified physician licensed to perform high-quality cosmetic and aesthetic procedures, and although they may cost a little more, they are worth every penny.

A facial or skin rejuvenating treatment at your neighborhood salon or a friend’s at-home spa party can be tempting. But while these options may seem fun, convenient or less expensive at the time, you may end up paying more in the end. Letting a friend of a friend of a friend who watched her cousin do skin treatments once is not a good idea. You could be putting your skin in the hands of people who have no business touching it.

If the person performing your procedure is unlicensed and lacks the proper training or experience to do your chemical peel, microdermabrasion, laser skin procedure or any other cosmetic procedure, you could end up with serious damage like scarring or hyperpigmentation. This damage may be costly to fix, or may not be fixable at all. Using only licensed providers trained in skin care procedures protects you from the risk of irreversible skin damage.

What's the Appeal with Chemical Peels?

What's the Appeal with Chemical Peels?

For years people have chosen chemical peels as a way to rejuvenate their skin because of their powerful ability to reduce fine lines and other signs of aging. Despite their popularity, they have not always been available for all skin types. For many years, patients with darker skin tones were told to avoid chemical peels. That is until the VI Peel hit the market.


Chemical peels improve the appearance of the skin using a chemical solution applied to the skin that causes the skin to exfoliate and peel off.

"The skin blisters and peels like it would in response to a sunburn," said Dr. Bill Johnson, M.D. Johnson, a cosmetic physician with offices in Dallas and Frisco, Texas, and an expert in skin aesthetic and rejuvenating treatments. "The difference is the sun is not exposed to harmful UV rays, and there is also no chance that skin’s pigment is impacted and won’t be uneven after treatment."
