New Life Aesthetics makes your home care a top priority. Aesthetic Nurse Practitioner, Meredith Harris, is passionate about the care you take for your skin at home. She has hand-selected the highest quality, medical grade skin care to assist you in meeting your individualized needs. Meredith will take the time to customize a plan of care that is as unique as you are! You will begin with a photo skin analysis which will help identify the underlying condition of your skin. Your skin type, age, condition, budget and lifestyle are all considered when she plans your care. Each product chosen will be described for its’ benefits and how it should be used.
We invite you to come and experience our uniquely refreshing approach to anti-aging. Please call our office to schedule a complimentary consultation and photo skin analysis with Meredith.
For more than 25 years, we have developed wound healing, sunscreens and skin care products that are widely used and recommended by physicians and other medical professionals in hospitals, burn centers, rehabilitation clinics, and long-term and short-term care centers. The Allergan approved treatment, EltaMD®, applies the experience to create innovative products that help restore, protect and maintain healthy skin and is formulated to cleanse, moisturize and repair visible signs of aging. EltaMD® is for every skin type and can fit into any type of lifestyle or specific special need.
Aging is something that happens to us all. As our collagen production diminishes, skin will begin to thin, causing elasticity to decrease. This causes facial sagging, fine lines and wrinkles. SkinMedica® products are known to be scientifically formulated and clinically tested to revitalize skin and revive your skin’s youthful appearance. SkinMedica® products go to work the moment they are applied. After consistently using a daily regimen that includes our clinically-tested products, you’ll begin to see noticeable results. SkinMedica® chooses scientifically proven ingredients, such as growth factors and other compounds, to formulate advanced skin care products with antioxidants and retinoids that enhance the natural appearance of your skin by helping to prevent free radical damage.
All SkinMedica® products are part of a medically supervised skin care regimen. Meredith will customize the skincare regimen that will offer your skin support and continuous improvement before and after all in-office treatments.
Chemical peels produce controlled injury to the skin, which promote growth of new skin and improved appearance. A variety of chemicals can be used as peeling agents and include glycolic, trichloroacetic (TCA), salicylic and resorcinol. The different chemical solutions produce different degrees of injury to the skin. Chemical peels are used for the treatment of photo-aging (from sun damage), wrinkles, scarring, acne, precancerous lesions, and discoloration (including melasma, freckles, and age spots).
Once a thorough consultation addresses your questions and concerns and a plan of care is designed, treatment requires a short office visit to apply the peel. Down-time is dependent on the peel solution and the depth of penetration. The state of your skin after a peel depends on the type of chemical used and your skin type. Superficial peels have limited effects. Medium peels may cause some redness and the deeper peels may require 10-14 days to recover.
Generally chemical peels require a series of treatments to yield visible, long-lasting results. They may be done once every 4-24 weeks, until the desired results are achieved. With good sun protection, results can last months, even years. This is dependent upon the depth of the peel. The deeper peels generally provide a long-lasting effect.
Platelet Rich Plasma has long been used in the medical field of regenerative medicine, orthopedics, dentistry, neurology and is now gaining much respect in the world of medical aesthetics. Science supports the use of PRP for the augmentation and regeneration of hard and soft tissues. PRP is the source of concentrated platelet content present in blood. Apart from assisting blood clotting, platelets also release growth factors that assist the human body to repair itself by stimulating cells to regenerate new tissue. Today, platelet rich plasma can easily be separated from blood, through a process of centrifugation. Using your enriched plasma permits the body to heal faster and more efficiently.
PRP treatments require that Meredith obtain a small tube of your blood prior to use. Once it has been centrifuged, it can be applied topically during microneedling treatments and/or injected in areas of scar tissue or areas that need rejuvenation, hydration and/or volumization. Your PRP can be injected alone, or in combination with dermal filler treatments. PRP is excellent at accelerating wound healing, and rejuvenating the skin under treatment.
Platelets release growth factors which initiate the healing cascade. Platelet Derived Growth Factors promote synthesis of the extracellular matrix. Transforming Growth Factors aid in synthesis of collagen. Epidermal Growth Factor assists in the proliferation and differentiation of epidermal cells. The Vascular Endothelial Growth Factors stimulate angiogenesis. All of these actions promote healthy, new, cellular growth.
Meredith’s guest will receive a complete consultation prior to treatment and skincare for use at home will be prescribed to support the treatment regimen. A single tube of blood will be drawn and centrifuged for injection. PRP is a clear straw-colored liquid that can be topically applied during a microneedling treatment or injected into areas in need of rejuvenation. Very little discomfort is experienced during this process.
