THE SECRET TO SKIN REJUVENATION IS OUT

Posted by 07.31.19

Lasers and ultrasound-based skin rejuvenation devices are great and get the job done, but they come with a lot of downtime and some pain, says Marina I. Peredo, MD, a Manhattan-based dermatologist.  “They also do nothing for skin laxity,” she says.

That’s why Dr. Peredo is so excited about Cutera’s Secret RF, a microneedling device powered by radiofrequency energy. “It’s my new favorite toy.” Dr. Peredo made her comments at a media breakfast held at Skinfluence, her Park Avenue office.

Microneedling uses tiny needles to create tiny holes in skin, which stimulate your skin’s natural healing process i.e. the production of collagen, the main building block of healthy, yo

MEET JANA BLANKENSHIP – FOUNDER OF CAPTAIN BLANKENSHIP

Posted by 07.21.19

Jana Blankenship grew up spending every summer in the tiny coastal town of Sorrento, Maine, hiking lush forests, swimming in the salty ocean and exploring the nearby islands. Her love for nature and the smells of the seaweed, ocean pine and wild roses first inspired Jana to create natural perfumes and eventually skincare, body care and haircare products. When friends wanted to start selling her products at their store, she knew she needed to start a company, and Captain Blankenship set sail.

Captain Blankenship is a small, women-run company in the Hudson River Valley and grew upon Jana’s mission to create organic beauty products that form a direct link with nature. From toner and face

Posted by 04.13.19

Just in time for spring cleaning, I tried the Stacked Skincare Dermaplaning Tool to slough away dead cells from a long, chilly New York winter.

The Dermaplaning Tool is an at-home facial exfoliation treatment that uses a sterile single edge blade to remove the buildup of debris, dead skin cells and peach fuzz that build up to dull your glowy skin. By exfoliating the outer layer of dead skin, the Dermaplaning Tool helps to reveal smoother, brighter skin.

Here’s what you get for $75: One reusable silver metal handle with replaceable blades designed for only 4 uses each. That’s it! Please don’t try to use your blades for more than 4 uses – dull blades can just irritate your skin and won’t
