The Clarisonic line of skincare brushes are proven far more effective at cleansing your skin than using your hands.

Gadgets marketed with the promise to make your skin smoother, brighter and more beautiful are a dime a dozen. Truth be told, many are far more effective at clearing your bank account than clearing your complexion, and it’s tough to know which products really will deliver what their packaging promises. That’s why Parkway Plastic Surgery only carries the most trusted and proven skincare products. And among our favorites is the Clarisonic skincare brush.

Created by the makers of the game-changing Sonicare toothbrush, the Clarisonic line of skincare brushes has proven a game changer, too. Designers of these devices revolutionized skincare by harnessing the power of sonic frequencies drive oscillation (directional movement of the Clarisonic brush heads) between 200 to 350 movements per second, working with skin’s natural elasticity to beautifully transform your skin’s texture and appearance. Originally developed for skincare professionals to use in treatment, then tailored to meet consumer demand, Clarisonic skincare brushes boomed in popularity, becoming the top cleansing brush recommended by leading dermatologists, aestheticians and spa professionals.

Here’s why:

  • Clinical studies show Clarisonic brushes remove 30 times more pollutants from your skin than cleansing with your hands;
  • Clinical studies also show that using Clarisonic allows for 61 percent greater absorption of Vitamin C (a highly potent antioxidant used in many top-quality skincare products) after use;
  • 94 percent of consumers report softer skin and 90 percent report more radiant skin after using Clarisonic.

Formulas can be tailored for your particular skin condition and desired outcome. Best of all, depending upon the strength of the chemical peel formula you choose downtime may be minimal. Chemical peels also help treat acne, wrinkles, freckles, age spots, liver spots and scars.
  2. Botox or dermal fillers: Injectables like Botox, which helps to relax overactive facial muscles, and dermal fillers like Radiesse, Juvederm and Restylane are among the quickest and most effective ways to smooth wrinkles, plump lips, augment cheeks, erase under-eye circles and reduce the appearance of scars. Your skincare specialist will help you choose which option is best for you.

Don’t Break a Sweat – Slim Lipo can Help

Imagine a life free of excessive sweating and all the social and financial costs that go with it. It's possible with SlimLipo.

Imagine a life free of excessive sweating and all the social and financial costs that go with it. It’s possible with SlimLipo.

Do you tend to break a sweat at the most inopportune moments? It might be a case of hyperhidrosis. And the solution just may surprise you. Laser liposuction technology designed to help slim your figure also can be used to help you better keep your cool.

Sweating is the mechanism by which the body cools itself. But this medical condition can cause you to sweat far beyond what is necessary for that natural cooling – up to four times the normal perspiration output. Hyperhidrosis is believed to be a genetic problem that prevents the body from regulating its sweat output, primarily affecting the hands, feet, groin, face and underarms. While some cases are triggered by high temperatures or stress, many instances of excessive sweating occur with no known trigger at all, making virtually any moment a risk of embarrassment.

It’s a condition with multiple social, career and financial implications. One survey showed that 80 percent of people with underarm hyperhidrosis feel at least moderately limited when meeting new people; 55 percent regularly feel unhappy; and 38 percent of patients report full-on depression. Visible underarm sweating can hold one back from landing jobs or promotions. And costs for dry cleaning or constantly replacing sweat-stained clothing can rack up quickly.

Enter SlimLipo Laser Liposuction, a patented cosmetic procedure that uses dual wavelengths of laser light to bring about multiple aesthetic benefits. It initially was designed and marketed to melt fat and tighten skin, giving patients a slimmer, smoother look. But research shows that SlimLipo also can be used to treat hyperhidrosis. Delivered via a tiny incision, the patented SlimLipo laser gently and permanently closes sweat glands, eliminating their ability to secrete perspiration.

Imagine a life free of the constant worry of embarrassing sweat odor and stains. It’s possible with SlimLipo. Get your excessive and unpredictable sweating under control by calling Jacksonville’s Parkway Plastic Surgery at 904-396-1186 to schedule a consultation today.
