A Facial for Oncology Patients

It brings to mind every possible, and exhaustible human emotion known to mankind. It is far reaching, yet stays very close to home. It can change an entire reality in just one second. Cancer changes lives every single day. It has changed mine.

I did not think that being an Aesthetician would bring me closer to the world of Oncology, but it has. I have had the privilege of meeting such amazing women who are mothers, teachers, sisters, and wives; but also warriors. They are truly fighting for their lives. To be given an opportunity to provide a facial to these beautiful women is truly a wonderful experience. It is a chance to offer a service that does not involve poking, prodding, and testing, which they have had incessantly. The oncology facial is simply a few moments of a loving and kind touch; a small break from all of the stress that becomes part of surviving daily life. Being able to provide that is just news to smile about.

                                  Angeline Lassiter                                                                            Robyn Johnson

But a facial for Oncology patients is quite a bit different than your average facial. Their skin has been compromised with not only the illness, but also with the potential cure. Many factors play into what options are available to the cancer patient in regard to a facial. Knowing these options are what make a successful and relaxing facial for each individual Oncology patient. If you consider the treatment alone causes hair loss, then what is it doing to the skin? Making sure the products used are a natural and healthy choice for each person is key. To provide a relaxing facial massage without stimulating the lymphatic system is also very important. So it is important to use the appropriate massage technique for each individual patient.

Knowing what is best for each individual Oncology patient comes from a good conversation about where the patient is in their treatment, and how they are feeling currently. Human touch is a powerful thing and can heal in many ways throughout our lives. So for a short while, maybe the warrior can take a short break from battle, forget about the pressing invasion of the enemy, and relax. It is very much deserved and needed.

It was CFR’s pleasure to serve a few of these lovely ladies in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

On PENS and Needles

What do you see when you look in the mirror? As I consider this question, it saddens me to think how most women (no matter how beautiful) only see flaws in the reflection staring back at them. “Where did that line come from? That wasn’t there before!” And when a tiny bump starts to surface, my mind jumps straight into “Why am I soooo broken out?!” mode.

For many years now, the size of my pores has been a huge concern to me. I’ve always had oily skin and growing up I was prone to bad breakouts. Now that I’ve worked in the aesthetics industry for over a year, my skin is clearer than it’s ever been. With that being said, when I look in the mirror I still see those little holes staring back at me throughout my upper cheek area and T-zone.

Recently our practice started offering a treatment created by Rejuvapen called microneedling. We were so excited to bring it on because it is a great overall remedy. It helps with pigment, scarring, and even helps to soften fine lines and wrinkles while giving your skin a boost in collagen levels. To my own advantage (drumroll please), it helps to diminish the appearance of pores!

I was a little uneasy going into the procedure because my pain tolerance levels are, let’s just say, not tremendously high. I was excited to learn that I was required to numb before being treated with Rejuvapen. Licensed Aesthetician Neko Shae made sure that numbing cream was applied liberally all over my face and I was instructed to sit tight for about 20 minutes before we could proceed.

Neko made sure I was perfectly comfortable before beginning my treatment. When she started, I could hardly even tell she was going hard after my areas of concern. The sensation I felt was like a tiny vibrating pin gliding all over my face. Truth be told, if the treatment had taken much longer, I may have even dozed off!

When Neko was done, she made sure my skin was covered with everything it needed to provide protection and to increase the treatment’s effectiveness. When I looked in the mirror, I saw some “pinkness” similar to that seen in a sunburn. By the next day, the color had essentially faded and I was ready to face the world with my resurfaced skin! I can’t wait to see what the next 3 weeks holds as my skin continues to improve as a result of using Rejuvapen. I would definitely recommend it to anyone with concerns similar to mine!

New to Center for Facial Rejuvenation…Microneedling (Rejuvapen)

Microneedling is a painless and simple way to treat scars, tighten skin, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, minimize pore size, and improve scars caused from acne. Microneedlinrejuvapen-beforeandafterg is a very versatile treatment with no down time, and results can be seen in as little as one week!
How microneedling works is a very natural form of skin renewal. It activates cell regeneration so your skin rebuilds collagen and elastin to repair the micro-perforations caused by the treatment. These invisible perforations in the skin cause the body to naturally repair itself, leaving younger, newer, healthier skin.

Q .What is microneedling?

A. Microneedling is a treatment that tightens skin, reduces fine lines and wrinkles, minimized appearance of scars caused from acne, and rejuvenates skin. It’s a perfect time to needle high potency growth factors into the skin!


Q. Is Microneedling painful?

A. No. Microneedling is a painless treatment. Numbing cream is applied to the face to ensure patient comfort.


Q. How long does the treatment take (per session)?

A. Each microneedling treatment takes 20-30 minutes after pre-numbing.


Q. Who is a good candidate for microneedling?

A. Anyone can receive a microneedling treatment, whether you have dark skin or light skin. It is suitable for all skin types.


Q. How will my skin feel after a microneedling treatment, and how long is the down time?

A. After microneedling, the skin is typically red and sometimes slightly swollen. By the second day, the majority of the redness will subside and makeup can be applied. There is no down time associated with microneedling, so you are able to go about your daily routine immediately.


Q. How long will my results last with microneedling?

A. Microneedling is a way to maintain healthy skin. Periodic treatments will be of great benefit to any skin type.


Q. How many treatments do I need?

A. Depending on your skin, 2-4 treatments may be required. Each treatment should be performed at least 4 weeks apart.


Q. How do I care for my skin after the microneedling treatment?

A. Wash with a gentle cleanser for three to five days after the microneedling treatment. Follow with a moisturizer and sunscreen. It is ideal to use the post-treatment care kit offered by your provider which will be the best products for your skin. Do not exercise and spend time in the sun. Your skin needs to be kept calm for optimal healing.

Look and Feel Your Best in 2015!

“I want to do something about my aging face and skin this year but I don’t want a facelift, what can I do?”

Most of my clients are concerned about the aging process and the subtle changes they see over time. Hollowness under the eyes, extra skin between the nose and mouth (nasal labial folds) and lower mouth (marionette lines) are some of the common areas of concern. Aging is about volume loss, as we age we lose bone, muscle and fat especially in the mid to upper face. By injecting small amounts of fillers such as Voluma, Juvéderm® Ultra Plus, Sculptra® and others we can refill the contours of the face giving the face a more vibrant and youthful look.

My client’s biggest concerns are “Will it look natural?” and “Will it hurt?”

First, if it doesn’t look natural, it doesn’t look good! Since fillers are soft and moldable I am able to sculpt the face creating a natural, beautiful look that my clients love. It’s fun to hear the positive feedback my client’s receive. Second, the lack of discomfort and downtime are among the reasons why non-invasive facial rejuvenation is so popular. We start with numbing cream, and then implement a gentle injection technique. Ice and Arnica (anti-bruising gel) are applied after the treatment and the client is on their way back to their normal activities.

The convenience and effectiveness of non-invasive facial treatments has made them the most sought after procedures in the industry.  According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, 6.6 million people received BOTOX® and 2.2 million received fillers in 2013. Fillers like Voluma and Sculptra® can last up to two years making them a very good investment.
