HOW DO I UTILIZE THE 6 PRODUCTS?


The CPN Systems™ regime is easy! It follows a simple to use 3-Step program in the morning and night, with alternating products to achieve the best result. The skincare regime is divided into the Image daily nutritional skin program and the Image MD intense workout program.

 

Image Regular Nutritional SKIN PROGRAM:

 

MORNING


Step 1. Daily Cleanse Ageless total facial cleanser
Step 2. Daily Prevent Vital C hydrating anti-aging serum
Step 3. Daily Nourish SUN solar defense oil-free SPF 30

 

EVENING


Step 1. Daily Cleanse Ageless total facial cleanser
Step 2. Daily Prevent Ageless the MAX
Step 3. Daily Nourish Vital C hydrating anti-aging serum

WHAT CAN I EXPECT IN THE FOLLOWING WEEKS AND MONTHS?


Your skin will feel almost immediate results! Initially, slight redness, tingling and irritation is normal and will subside with continuous usage of the program. This indicates that your skin starts to speed up its regular cellular turn over and dead surface skin cells are shedding off to reveal healthy, glowing skin. The pigment of your skin will be distributed more evenly and your skin will feel fresh, more hydrated and toned. With new collagen production in the deeper layers of the skin, fine lines and wrinkles, especially around the delicate eye area and cheeks will be significantly reduced. With every week of regular usage, your skin will dramatically improve in texture, complexion and overall appearance.

 

HOW DO I COMBAT THE INITIAL DRYNESS AND IRRITATION?


Remember: ingredients used in this program are highly active to achieve the desired results! You can utilize the Vital C hydrating anti-aging serum as well as the Ageless the MAX to reduce initial redness and sensitivity due to the active ingredients. When redness and irritation is prolonged, skip one of the Image MD intense WORK OUT days and continue with the regular DAILY PROGRAM.

 

HOW CAN I ACHIEVE AN EVEN GREATER CLINICAL RESPONSE OF MY SKIN?


The first option is to increase the usage of the Image MD products to every other day if your skin tolerates it. You can increase the Image MD intense retinol serum RX to three or even four times a week, but do not use daily. The second option is to implement Image signature chemical peeling treatments-usually a series of 6 chemical treatments can enhance the desired result.

 

CAN I USE THE CPN SYSTEMS™ PROGRAM ONGOING?


This program is great for daily ongoing use! Unlike other regimes it is specifically designed as a balanced, daily program which can be used as your regular skincare protocol. When you exceed three months of daily usage, just leave out the Image MD lightening crème RX for a couple of months, but continue with the Image MD intense retinol serum RX for maintenance of the achieved results.

BLU-U LIGHT FOR ACNE TREATMENT AND PHOTODYNAMIC THERAPY

Acne is estimated to affect more than 80% of the world’s population at some time during their life. In the U.S., billions of dollars are spent on anti-acne medications and treatments, but many oral acne treatments (Accutane® and other antibiotics) are known to have serious side effects. Blu-U acne light therapy is effective, painless, and has no known side effects.

 

We offer two exciting ways to treat stubborn acne with the state of the art Blu-U light!

  1. Blue-U Light is FDA approved for mild to moderate acne. This procedure is non-invasive and pain free, with full-face and neck treatments taking approximately 16 minutes. The BLU-U acne light works with all skin types (I-VI) and it is just fine if you have a suntan! Blue light photodynamic therapy acts by killing acne causing bacteria.

    Patients simply sit comfortably in a chair while the light is applied to the affected area; they can even listen to music while being treated.

    Once the treatment session is over, patients can immediately return to their daily routine. This means no downtime or inconvenience, especially important factors for active teens and young adults. Initial treatment sessions are approximately twice a week for 8 weeks, followed by maintenance session of once or twice a month. The fee is $50 per treatment or a package of 8 for $300.

  2. Another way to treat more severe acne is called Levulan Photodynamic Therapy.

    Blue Light (Blu U) is combined with a topical medication called Levulan in a procedure known as Levulan Photodynamic Therapy (PDT). Levulan (5-Amino Levulinic Acid) is a medication that is applied to the skin. This medication makes acne-causing bacteria and precancerous sun spots more sensitive to the Blu-U (Blue Light) treatments.

    PTD treatment has the unique ability to reduce oil glands, effectively treating stubborn acne and improve the appearance of some acne scars. Acne can be treated with topical creams and lotions, birth control pills, antibiotic pills, retinoids, glycolic peels and microdermabrasion. Now PDT is another safe and effective alternative available for acne treatment.

    Blu U Levulan Photodynamic acne treatment involves three mechanisms of action against acne. Levulan treatment inactivates the bacteria that trigger acne, exfoliates the skin to unclog pores, and shuts down the oil glands (sebaceous glands) in the skin. This can produce long-lasting improvement.

    Levulan acne therapy can even work in patients who have failed prescription pills. Results with Levulan PDT are especially impressive when compared with conventional treatments, such as topical medicines and oral antibiotics.

  3. Levulan Photodynamic Therapy can also be used for skin rejuvenation, precancerous sun spots, improvement of sun damage and skin cancer prevention.

    Yes. Levulan Photodynamic Therapy using Blue Light can be used for non-surgical skin rejuvenation. This procedure results in significant improvement in precancerous conditions such as actinic keratoses, sun damaged skin and potentially superficial skin cancers. Additionally it potentially prevents the development of skin cancer. Levulan is revolutionizing how we perform skin rejuvenation and how we treat sun-damaged skin. Levulan is preferentially absorbed by precancerous cells. When combined with Blue light the Levulan kills the cancer cells, and leaves the normal skin unharmed. It is particularly effective for actinic keratoses on the scalp, face, arms and legs. It has the added benefit of skin cancer prevention - killing abnormal cells BEFORE they can become a skin cancer. Even those people with no obvious sun spots can be treated to prevent skin cancer from developing.

    • Removing precancerous skin lesions
    • Preventing skin cancer
    • Improving skin texture
    • Treating sebaceous hyperplasia (enlarged oil glands)

    How safe is it? Are there any side-effects?

    The BLU-U treatment is very safe. The blue-violet light penetrates just deep enough into the tissue to reach the acne target. It only affects the P. acnes bacteria, not the normal tissue. It contains NO radiation and does not damage the skin itself. It has NO risk of causing cancer. Even though there is no evidence of complications, we will not perform this treatment if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. You should not be treated if you have:

    • Skin sensitivity to blue light
    • Porphyria (a disorder of the blood that can lead to sensitivity to light)
    • Allergies to chemicals called porphyrins
    • Lupus
    • Recent chemotherapy
    • Accutane use last 12 months
    • Pregnancy

    How do I prepare for my treatment?

    The face should be cleansed with soap and water and free of any oil. Ladies need to be make-up free during the treatment. Make-up may be re-applied immediately after the treatment.


    What is the procedure for Levulan Photodynamic therapy?

    1. At your first visit a Blue Light PDT technician will provide a free consultation. During the consultation she will discuss the benefits of Blue Light, explain the procedure and benefits to you and answer any questions that you may have. Furthermore she will explain how the procedure works and how many treatments you will need, and provide you with a price quote. She will also ask you a series of questions to determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure and to determine your skin type and sensitivity.
    2. After your consultation the technician, the doctor will assess your skin type and whether the Blue Light would be suitable for you. In addition, he will answer any further questions that you may have.
    3. If you decide to go ahead with a treatment, photographs will be taken of the treatment area. These photographs are strictly for your chart and will not be released or used without your permission. Your privacy is of the utmost importance to us.
    4. You will be asked to wash your face and to remove any makeup. It is not necessary to remove mascara, lip stick or lip liner.
    5. After this, the Photodynamic Therapy technician will initially cleanse the skin. She may use microdermabrasion to remove dead skin cells and impurities. Microdermabrasion prior to treatment improves the penetration and effectiveness of the Levulan. When treating precancerous sun spots on the scalp, chest or back, acetone is used to remove skin oils prior to treatment. After the skin is cleansed, Levulan, which is a clear solution, is applied with a cotton tipped applicator. Levulan can be applied to treat any area of the body including the face, scalp, chest, back, arms groins and underarms. The medication is left to rest on the face and neck for 60 minutes, the chest, back, arms and legs for 180 minutes. This 60 minute application time is termed the incubation period. Short incubation times retain efficacy but diminish discomfort and side effects. There is normally NO discomfort to the patient with short incubation times and 8-16 minutes of blue light therapy.
    6. After the incubation period the Levulan will be activated with Blue Light. Patients sit comfortably in a chair or lie on an examination bed while the light is applied to the affected area for a period of 8-16 minutes; they can even listen to music while being treated.
    7. No anaesthetic topical cream is needed prior to the light exposure because the treatment is painless.
    8. Patients are given special goggles to wear turing the blue light treatment.
    9. During the treatment a patient may feel stinging, tingling, prickling, or burning of the lesions, but this should go away after the treatment.
    10. After treatment with the Blue U, the solution will be washed off the skin using soap and water. A layer of sunscreen is applied last prior to leaving the office.
    11. You will be provided with a booklet of after-care instructions and the technician will recommend specific products to take care of your skin after the treatment.

    What should I expect after my treatment?

    • There will be redness, and occasionally, mild blistering or bruising of the treated areas lasting from several hours to 3-14 days. This will depend on the sensitivity of your skin and the severity of your sun damage. Most people are completely healed within 7 days.
    • The treated area might "crust", "flake", or look like a "cat scratch." Any areas that become crusted are pre-cancerous areas that have been successfully treated. Some crusting and scabbing is considered a good result. This should resolve within 3-14 days.
    • Your skin will be more sensitive for a few days up to a couple of weeks after your treatment. There should be some discomfort, but no significant pain.
    • After 1 week, there might be some residual redness that will subside after a few days and can be covered with make up.

    Special precautions for 1 week after your treatment:

    • Keep the treated area out of the sun and bright lights for 48 hours. Exposure to the sun within this time period can lead to a severe blistering burn in the areas that were treated.
    • If outdoor exposure sun is unavoidable, wear a hat with a brim, cover your face with a scarf, wear large sunglasses and use sunscreen. Sunscreen alone is NOT ENOUGH PROTECTION to prevent a burn in the first 48 hours after treatment.
    • You should continue to use sunscreen daily for at least 4 weeks following treatment regardless of the time of year or if it is overcast or cloudy. Sun exposure may lead to the production of blotchy dark pigmentation which may take several months to fade.
    • Avoid excessive heat exposure such as saunas, steam rooms, hot showers or baths, and strenuous exercising for 24 hours. This prevents the risk of blistering.
    • You can return to normal activities immediately after treatment, as long as you avoid bright light and sunlight for 48 hours.
    • Avoid any aggressive skin care products such as scrubs, exfoliants, alpha or beta hydroxy acid products.
    • Keep clothing from rubbing the treated area and avoid other irritation to the area.
    • Do not get hairspray on the treated area.
    • Notify the office should you have any prolonged redness, excessive puffiness, or other unusual side effects.

    2. Call the office, we will be happy to help you and to answer your questions.

    How many treatments are required and what is the cost?

    Once per month, separated by 2-4 weeks may be required depending on your results. Most patients get excellent results on their 1st or 2nd treatments. This should be followed by an annual maintentance of one to 4 treatments. The fee is $375 per session and does include the facial microdermabrasion prior to the blue light treatments.

Wart & Mole removals

We remove simple warts with local anesthesia and Hypfrcation. If they return within the year, we will re-treat them for free! Treatment fee is $125 for up to three warts, then $25 for any additional warts. Our doctor will evaluate all moles for size, location, and possible cancer. If they are found to be benign, a treatment option will be discussed and priced (the average price is $295).

Latisse®

There's been a growing interest in this product ever since it was introduced. And it's no wonder. LATISSE® is the first and only FDA-approved prescription treatment for inadequate or not enough eyelashes, growing them longer, fuller and darker.

 

LATISSE® solution is an actual growth treatment. In fact, it's the only FDA-approved treatment clinically proven to grow lashes. And it's the only lash growth product of its kind available by prescription.

 

It is a once-a-day treatment you apply topically to the base of your upper eyelashes, as instructed by your doctor. Then, gradually, the results come in. You may start to see more length in as little as 4 weeks and you should achieve full growth in 16 weeks. It's not an illusion of growth. It's your own eyelashes – only better.

 

LATISSE® makes lash growth possible because of its active ingredient: bimatoprost. Although the precise mechanism of action is unknown, LATISSE® is believed to affect the growth (anagen) phase of the eyelash hair cycle in two ways: first, it increases the length of this phase, and second, it increases the number of hairs in this growth phase.

 

We offer LATISSE® prescription with 2 refills for a $45 fee. You will recieve a consultation and fill out a medical questionaire on your initial visit.
