Two great ways to remove dead skin from your face are microdermabrasion and Dermaplaning, now being offered at Reflections. Both non-chemical treatments are designed to exfoliate top layers of dry, sun-damaged and dead skin cells. Microdermabrasion sloughs away the skin and works kind of like sandpaper. Dermaplaning is performed with a blade that scrapes away the skin, kind of like being shaved. It also removes small, fine baby hairs. Both with leave your skin looking brighter, smoother and healthier.
Want to make your eyes look brighter and more defined? Lash and brow tinting have also been added to our menu of services. This color enhancement treatment lasts about four weeks.

Everyone knows that few people stick with New Year’s resolutions. So don’t make any! According to Forbes Magazine, studies have shown that four out of five people break their resolutions. And a third of resolutions don’t make it past the first month. Why? Because most people tend to set unrealistic goals they want to accomplish in a short period of time, and they become overwhelmed.
So what should you do instead? Make a plan for the entire year that incorporates smaller daily, weekly and monthly activities that will lead to accomplishing your goals. As you know, one of your top priorities is your health, and taking care of your skin, the largest organ in your body, should be near the top of your personal healthcare list. And Reflections Laser & Wellness is here to help.
Healthier Skin for the Long Haul
Your skincare strategies should be unique to you… not what your friends are doing, not what the TV commercials are telling you. At Reflections, we offer a free one-hour Complimentary Signature Consultation. That consultation will give you the specific plan to help you achieve goals for the health and beauty of your skin. During your consultation, we will take you through a step-by-step process:
Conduct a thorough intake and review of your health and skin issues
Analyze your skin head to toe
Create a roadmap with an ongoing plan for treatment
The roadmap will include a daily regimen of self-care plus any regular treatments that will enhance your own efforts. If you are already using a number of products at home, it will be easy to make any needed modifications based on our analysis. Or, if you only use one or two products, we won’t overwhelm you with major additions or changes. We want you to be able to stick with your self-care for the long term.
Your daily self-care will have the greatest impact on the health of your skin; however, the regular Reflections’ treatments we recommend will be especially effective if you have specific skin issues and goals. For example, most women, and even men, are interested in slowing down the aging process. If you have rosacea, acne, dehydration or pigmentation challenges due to sun damage or hormones, we will prescribe a particular plan that fits your needs.
So let’s get started on a plan you can embrace all year and for years to come. To schedule your Complimentary Signature Consultation, call us today at 561-221-1462.
Check out this blog from GlyMed Plus, our exclusive product supplier. GlyMed Plus is an innovator in skin care, and we are proud to represent its products.
We have had a few questions about one of the newest innovative ingredients GlyMed Plus has started using, Fulvic Acid, and we wanted to answer some of the key questions here. This amazing ingredient will soon take the skincare world by storm. GlyMed Plus leads the industry with its use of Fulvic Acid in our skin care products.
What is Fulvic Acid and where does it come from?
Fulvic Acid is a humic substance meaning that it is a major component of organic matter. Fulvic Acid is released as organic matter decomposes. This new ingredient is considered one of the most chemically active compounds in soil because it contains a variety of beneficial nutrients. It is anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-viral, anti-inflammatory, and anti-allergic.
Fulvic Acid is neither an AHA nor a BHA it is an electrolyte. Electrolytes are what allows our bodies to function properly. They help us to generate energy, think about when you drink a sports drink after you work out you feel better right? Electrolytes do the same thing for our skin; they enhance the availability of nutrients to make them more readily absorbable. This property restores each individual cell to a normal chemical balance. Electrolytes also allow our skin cells to function at a higher level just like sports drinks allow our bodies to function at a higher level and repair damage that has taken place.
Fulvic Acid acts as a delivery system, meaning it has the ability to make nutrients bioavailable to the skin allowing for deep penetration. This ingredient can literally transform minerals into molecules that are much more easily absorbed into the skin. Therefore, your cells are able to take in a higher amount of nutrients.
The best part about this amazing ingredient is that everyone benefits from using it. It is incredibly reparative at the cellular level so those who suffer from any type of compromised skin and the inflammatory issue will especially benefit from the use of products with the ingredient Fulvic Acid.
What benefits will come to my clients when using products formulated with Fulvic Acid?
Skin concerns like dermatitis, psoriasis, eczema, seborrheic keratosis, pruritus, actinic keratosis, acne, and aging skin all have one thing in common and that is inflammation. When inflammation can be controlled then a lot of these uncomfortable and sometimes debilitating skin disorders can be controlled. It is believed that this innovative ingredient is so effective in treating the skin because of its anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties.
Fulvic Acid’s anti-bacterial effect is attributed to its capability to balance the pH levels in our body. When we have too much acid in the body, our immune system cannot function the way that it needs to. Our pH level should be just above neutral, at this level our immune system can locate and destroy bacterial overgrowth, which has been linked to acne breakouts.
The topical application of Fulvic Acid reduces the production and impact of pro-inflammatory substances. Fulvic Acid is an extremely powerful antioxidant so it is very beneficial in preventing oxidation and inflammation, which are both main culprits of aging skin. As a powerful antioxidant, it will behave as an electron donor or acceptor depending upon the need for balance in skin cells. When the skin gets inflamed and damages the skin it alters collagen and elastin production causing the skin to age. The use of Fulvic Acid is essential to improve skin health and vitality. This is particularly important when treating aging skin. This ingredient helps to protect the cells.
Does it increase cell turnover rate?
No, it does not. This ingredient increases the function and performance of the cells but it does not have anything to do with cell turnover rare. Have no worries, it does not behave like an acid but it will enhance the abilities of an acid to work better within the skin.
Are there risks?
There are no known risks of using this ingredient. Our bodies actually need Fulvic Acid to function properly. Electrolytes, such as Fulvic Acid, are essential to the health of both the body and the skin. It is a natural organic substance that has so many benefits and really no known side effects.
Is Fulvic Acid a common allergen?
No, it is not, because it is an electrolyte the body will naturally accept it as something that is needed for health and proper function.
How is Fulvic Acid related to enzyme production?
Enzymes are a crucial part of cell metabolism, there has to be an enzyme reaction in order for a full metabolic activity to take place. It helps to stimulate enzymatic reactions in cells, helping to produce maximum stimulation of enzyme development. It is also said to have a coenzyme effect resulting in increased levels of enzyme and cell stimulation.
The use of Fulvic Acid in skin care is essential to the skin and has unparalleled benefits for improving overall skin health. Fulvic Acid and its unique composition and capabilities bring cells to their highest level of performance, which is very important for the overall health of the skin. Fulvic Acid is the ingredient that everyone needs for optimum skin cell function.

When I was in my 20s, 30s and even my 40s, I was told I looked 10 years younger than my age on a regular basis. Now that I’m 50 something (said begrudgingly, although better than the alternative), this hasn’t been the case. So obviously I’m looking my age but still yearn for those compliments.
For years, I’ve contemplated Botox (I hate needles, by the way) or a Facelift. And while I’ve been receiving ultrasonic facials at Reflections Laser & Wellness for about a year… and my skin feels softer and looks smoother, it just isn’t quite getting me the flattery that my vanity requires. And don’t get me wrong; I want healthier skin too.
Recently, Janet (Robbins, my esthetician and owner of Reflections) convinced me to try Microneedling (did I tell you I hate needles). So I did, and oh wow. We’re on the way to avoiding that dreaded facelift.
So what is Microneedling? Also called Collagen Induction Therapy, Microneedling involves using fine needles to create tiny, invisible puncture wounds in the top layer of the skin. Yes, I said “needles.” Sounds awful, right? But it’s not; it actually felt like an intense massage. And what Microneedling does is stimulate the body’s natural wound healing process, which automatically turns over cells and increases collagen and elastin growth… ultimately helping to reverse and prevent signs of aging.
But that’s not all. Microneedling can also eliminate acne scars, reverse sun damage, shrink your pores and make your skincare products absorb better so that they are more effective.
Several hours after the process, I felt some intense tingling in my face, and then it felt like sandpaper for a few days because it was releasing the old collagen. Immediately after the process, I was able to go back to my work and normal activities and was told to stay out of the sun for a couple of days.
Microneedling can also be combined with other minimally invasive procedures such as PRP (platelet rich plasma) therapy and chemical peels to achieve a more dramatic effect. It’s not inexpensive to take good care of your skin… and look younger… but to me, the benefits far outweigh the alternatives, including facelifts. (Did I mention I hate scalpels more than needles?) Oh, and don’t forget to use your sunscreen.
