What is Titan Tissue Tightening? Laser Cosmetica is pleased to offer Titan, the newest breakthrough in laser skin therapy. For the serious candidate who wants to reverse the signs of aging lax skin through non-surgical means, Titan offers a safe effective alternative to traditional face lifts and tummy tucks. Titan is an FDA approved tissue tightening procedure that tightens lax skin around the arms, chin, cheeks, abdomen – all body parts. A pain free alternative to surgical methods, Titan produces dramatic results!
How does Titan work? Using infra-red light Titan penetrates deep into the dermis, deep-heating the tissue in the targeted area and stimulating long-dormant collagen. As a result, the collagen contracts and tightens, producing visibly firmer-looking skin in the treated area. Results become more dramatic over time as collagen re-builds through a series of treatments. Titan is effective and safe for all skin types.
Do you think your face needs a more thorough cleansing than it gets with just soap? If so, you're not alone. This need to clean the skin “better” has spurred the invention of different face cleaning tools. Beware. You may feel like you're getting a deeper clean. But, just like abrasive scrubs, these cleaning tools can cause too much dryness and tiny injuries on the face.
Let's take a look at four popular face cleaning tools and how they affect the skin.
Woven Mesh Sponge The original mesh cleanser was the Buf-Puf. It was made of non-woven polyester fibers designed to unclog pores. The fibers were held together with a glue that didn't dissolve or soften after it was soaked in water. This made the fibers very stiff and harsh.
Now, Buf-Puf sponges are made of a softer woven mesh. They also come in four different “strengths” depending on how soft or firm the fibers are.
Facial Cloths One of the most popular tools for cleaning the face is the facial cloth. Some cloths have soap and moisturizers embedded in them and lather after you get them wet. Others don't have a lathering soap and work more like a moist towelette. Because facial cloths are a good choice for many skin types, get more in-depth information about washing your face with facial cloths. Cleansing Pouch The cleansing pouch is actually a variation of the facial cloth. The pouch is made of two open-weave cloths that have holes of various diameters. A plastic membrane with cleanser embedded is sandwiched in between the cloths, and the size of the holes determines how much of the cleanser gets to the skin. While it does control the amount of cleanser that's released, the cleansing pouch doesn't exfoliate as much as a non-woven cleansing cloth. Face Brush The latest facial cleansing tool is the Clarisonic face brush, made by the same company that developed the Sonicare Toothbrush. And yes, this brush works like an electric toothbrush for the face.

Facial Cleansing For Your Skin Type by Diana Clarke
Do you know best way to wash your face and which products to use? Dermatologists say that there are several ways to cleanse the face, but the ingredients that work for one person may not work for someone else. Whats more, there is a barrage of new products to choose from.
To help you decide which methods and tools for cleansing the skin are best for you, dermatologist Zoe D. Draelos, M.D., clinical associate professor in the department of dermatology at Wake Forest University School of Medicine, Winston-Salem, N.C., discusses skin regimens that are appropriate for each skin type.
The Term “Skin Type” Refers to two things: how much sebum your skin produces, and where this sebum is most heavily produced. To find out your skins type, you can do the tissue test: Simply wash your face with a gentle cleanser, wait 15 to 30 minutes, and then hold a facial tissue against your face for 5 seconds.
Different skin types
A FRIEND RECENTLY CAME TO me for advice regarding her sudden acne breakout. And when it comes to dishing advice on skin flare-ups, Ive always been practical and straightforward: See a dermatologist if over-the-counter products dont work; ditch the salicylic acid in place of benzoyl peroxide if youre allergic to the former (and also toss the latter if its irritating your skin); check your laundry detergent and regularly wash your bed sheets, check for hormonal fluctuations with your doctor, and so forth.
But because of pricey derma clinics in the US, in the last two years, Ive experimented with reasonable acne treatment alternatives that are available at beauty counters.

Determine your skin type
There is no magic potion that can make ugly spots and pimples disappear overnight. But there are ways to rejuvenate the skin and bring it back to good health. Experts agree that taking regular care of your skin is the only way you can avoid problems and delay the ageing process. So cleanse, tone, moisturise and nourish your skin everyday. Within a week you will feel the difference. The skin has tremendous powers of self-regeneration when properly cared for and it is never too late to start.
Irrespective of the skin type, a thorough cleansing is a must. A film of dirt, stale sweat, oil deposits, stale make-up and other pollutants cover the skin and these are potent skin irritants. Cleanse your skin, according to your skin type. Splash your face with water then massage with a gentle face wash and work it up to a lather for about 30 seconds. A light massage will boost the supply of blood to the surface of your skin. Rinse until the soapy trace is removed. Pat dry your skin with a soft towel to absorb residual water from the surface of your skin.
