FAQ’s...

Q.) What skin imperfections can a Photofacial address? What are the limitations of a Photofacial?

A.) Imperfections that are commonly treated with a Photofacial include: freckles, red spots, broken blood vessels, spider veins and variations in color. Many of our Photofacial clients report smaller pore size and reduction of fine wrinkles. A Photofacial is not intended to treat fine wrinkles or pore size, but such occurrences are a fairly common and pleasant added benefit. A Photofacial is not intended to cause temporary or permanent hair reduction, but that frequently happens as well.

Step 3 Max-High Potency Stabilized Vitamin C Cream

Vitamin C is one of the few active ingredients that when applied to the skin works to stimulate collagen and reduce wrinkles, not just improve the appearance of wrinkles. Vitamin C is an anti-oxidant which is very beneficial to the skin. It stimulates your skin to make its own natural moisturizers called glycosaminoglycans. Glycosaminoglycans will allow your skin to absorb moisture from your body which reduces the need for applying other moisturizers.

The problem with topical Vitamin C is that it is highly unstable in air and water. After being exposed to air or water, topical Vitamin C becomes oxidized. Once it is oxidized, it not only does not work anymore, it actually becomes a "pro-oxidant" which can actually cause wrinkles! You can usually tell when Vitamin C becomes oxidized because it starts to turn yellow or brown. Lots of manufactures know this, so they tint their products. This makes it impossible to tell when the product has gone bad! Our Step 3 Max product is pristine white. Furthermore, it has additional ingredients and packaging that prevent it from oxidizing.

Additional features and benefits:

  • Stimulates skin to make natural moisturizers
  • Reduces need for applying other moisturizers
  • Pristine white color for non-oxidization

How to use / Ingredients

There is something else you need to know about topical Vitamin C products. Vitamin C is a water soluble vitamin. Skin is not water soluble, it is fat soluble. That means water soluble products that are placed on the skin have very little ability to penetrate into the skin. It is like trying to mix water into oil. It just won't work! In order to get water soluble topical Vitamin C to penetrate into fat soluble skin, the Vitamin C must be ionized. This is done by lowering the pH of the product. This lower pH is necessary to allow the Vitamin C to penetrate. This low pH may make products with Vitamin C as the active ingredient tingle or sting a little bit, but only for a few minutes.
