Skin Classic Treatment for Minor Skin Irregularities

Now offering The Skin Classic treatment at Holistic Skin Care by Janine in Buffalo NY. This treatment uses high frequency radio waves (not a laser) to treat minor skin irregularities such as age spots, skin tags, broken capillaries, sebaceous hyperiplasa, milia, cherry angiomas, and acne.  Nearly any epidermal irregularity can be treated.  Each irregularity only takes a few seconds and the tip of the probe never penetrates the epidermis.  Normally only one treatment is required for complete resolution of the problem area.

Irregularities that can be treated with the Skin Classic:

Seborrhoeic_keratosis
Seborrheic Keratosis
skin-tags
Skin Tags
broken-capillaries
Broken Capiliaries
Sebaceous-Hyperplasia-8
Sebaceous Hyperplasia
cherry-angioma
Cherry Angioma

Why do home remedies that wont work? Why go to the doctor and pay an arm and a leg for removal?

  • The average cost of a skin tag removal in the US is $209 at a doctor.
  • To remove broken capillaries the cost can vary from $250 to $600 per treatment.

*Please note we do not treat anything below the waist.

Please call or email Janinemt1285@yahoo.com to book a consultation!

New Service at Holistic Skin Care by Janine, Buffalo NY- Celluma (LED) Light Therapy

The perfect add-on to any to “boost” any of our facial treatments! 

In the same way that plants use chlorophyll to convert sunlight into plant tissue, high intensity light emitting diodes (LEDs) utilizing specific, proven wavelengths of light can trigger a natural biostimulatory effect in human tissue.   


What is Light Therapy?

Light Emitting Diode (LED) phototherapy is the application of light energy to tissue to obtain therapeutic benefits. The energy is used to improve cellular performance. Phototherapy is known for its healing and anti-inflammatory properties and has a variety of applications across many medical fields. Research has shown that phototherapy can:

  1. Increase circulation
  2. Accelerate tissue repair
  3. Decrease wrinkles
  4. Decrease inflammation
  5. Improve skin tone, texture and clarity
  6. Ease muscle and joint pain, stiffness, spasm and arthritis 
  7. Kill acne bacteria

How Does Light Energy work?

Specific wavelengths of light energy, when properly absorbed, up-regulates compromised cells. The light (photons) energy is absorbed by photoacceptors in the mitochondria and used to create adenosine triphosphate (ATP). The ATP produced then stimulates various metabolic processes which can result in the repair and regeneration of cell and tissue components. In an article, “Therapeutic Light” – by Chukuku S. Enwemeka, PT, PhD, FACSM, he wrote “other reported mechanisms of light-induced beneficial effects include modulation of prostaglandin levels, alteration of somatosensory evoked potential and nerve conduction velocity, and hyperemia of treated tissues. The resultant clinical benefits include pain relief in conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome, bursitis, tendonitis, ankle sprain, and temporomandibular joint dysfunction, shoulder and neck pain, arthritis, and post-herpetic neuralgia, as well as tissue repair in cases of diabetic ulcer, venous ulcer, mouth ulcer, fractures, tendon rupture, ligamentous, tear, torn cartilage, and nerve injury.”

What is Celluma?

Celluma is unique and quite unlike any other low-level light therapy device available today. Based on NASA research, Celluma delivers blue, red and near-infrared light energy simultaneously to safely treat a wide variety of conditions. Each wavelength is absorbed by different molecules that act as a signaling mechanism for different cellular processes. For example, some reduce inflammation and some kill bacteria, while others enhance localized circulation. 


                          Pricing Options

Stand Alone Service LED Light Therapy (30 minutes)                             $35

Add-On to Any Facial Or Enzyme Therapy Treatment  (30 minutes)      $30

DMK Muscle Banding Facial Treatments in Buffalo, NY


Regain and Retain a Youthful Look

&

Prevent Rapid Aging

facial-muscles-1

Your face contains 57 muscles. The neck contains a large muscle called the Platysma Muscle which extends around the front of the neck and beneath the chin. The purpose of DMK MUSCLE BANDING is to strengthen and tighten these muscles.

 

MUSCLE BANDING is a 6 to 24 week anti-aging (depending on the skin’s condition) treatment program that is performed weekly.  Bi-weekly treatments can also achieve great results. It works by physically strengthening the muscles of the face and neck but without the physical effort. The more treatments in a close time frame, the better the results. Just like any physical exercise program, faster results are obtained from regular treatments because of muscle memory.

The term “banding” refers to the technique used during the application of the DMK Enzyme Masque which is designed to act directly upon the muscles of the face and neck.

The treatment instantly lifts and firms the skin and helps to restore optimal skin functioning.

The Power of Enzymes

MUSCLE BANDING gets results by making use of DMK’s world renowned, signature treatment known as enzyme therapy. Enzymes are natural substances that are used to awaken the skin’s own natural processes allowing it to function normally and promote the growth of healthy, youthful skin.


MUSCLE BANDING is For Everyone

MUSCLE BANDING is suitable for both men and women of all ages. Anyone who wants to maintain healthy, youthful skin and preserve their looks will benefit from this excellent age-management program

  • Young people, even where there are no visible signs of ageing
  • People with thin, fragile skin
  • Anyone wanting to maintain a healthy, glowing look
  • Anyone with aging, weakened skin
  • Treatments can be tailored to target the neck muscles only if this is an area of concern

Prevention is Better Than Cure – Avoid Costly Cosmetic Surgery

DMK recommends undergoing a yearly course of MUSCLE BANDING to keep your skin stimulated and your muscles toned. The more regular the treatments, the better, meaning that you will retain your good looks for a very long time.

How MUSCLE BANDING Helps You To Look Younger

  • Restores the natural functioning and processes of the skin
  • Preserves your looks by slowing down the ageing process
  • Nourishes your skin by promoting the supply of rich nutrients
  • Cleans and detoxifies, removing impurities from your skin
  • Removes dead cell material from the surface of your skin
  • Strengthens, tightens and tones the muscles of your face and neck to prevent sagging skin
  • Decreases the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles

 

Your face and neck contains many muscles which are used to control the movement of your head, jaw and mouth. Just like other muscles in the body, they can be expanded or contracted under tension.

Naturally with age and lack of exercise, these muscles weaken to cause sagging skin and a loss of firmness.

MUSCLE BANDING works by sending signals to contract the muscles of the face and neck.

MUSCLE BANDING is like lifting weights at the gym to strengthen and tone the muscles of the body. Lifting weights causes the muscles to contract which increases blood circulation and builds stronger, firmer muscle tissue.

What this means for you is a tighter, firmer skin and a healthy glowing complexion without sagging jowls. Tighter skin also means that wrinkles, creases or fine lines will be greatly reduced leaving a smoother texture behind.


Aging is the result of a loss of function in the skin. This means that the skin’s own natural processes weaken with age.

DMK’s MUSCLE BANDING Treatment actually stimulates the skin in such a way that it restores these natural processes and functions helping the skin to do what it’s meant to do in a natural way.

DMK Super Serum & TransGensis (The Ultimate Age Management Creme)

We LOVE our Super Serum & TransGensis creme, and so does the rest of the world!  They have both won awards for their respective categories in Dermascope’s Aestheticians’ Choice Awards!  Available and In Stock at Holistic Skin Care by Janine.

Super Serum

The main ingredients in Super Serum are Beta-glucan (yeast cell wall extracts), a stable form of Vitamin C (Ethyl Ascorbic Acid), Panthenol (Vitamin B), and Sodium PCA ( a natural component of the skin’s acid mantle.)  Beta-glucan stimulates Langerhans cells (the skin’s immune system) to work at their fullest capacity, reducing redness, swelling, and inflammation. Ethyl Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C) is a stable form of vitamin C that converts into L-ascorbic acid upon penetration.  It is imperative for proper cell function and promotes collagen synthesis, as well as brightening the skin by inhibiting Tyrosinase activity.  Vitamin B is a humectant that restores barrier function and aids in vital tissue repair.  This serum is healing, age corrective, and great for all skins undergoing skin revision or any maintenance program.

TransGensis: The Ultimate Age Management Creme

About DMK Transgenesis Creme
We can’t stop time, nor can we reverse it, but TransGenesis crème can make your skin look and feel like we can. When we think of Healthy and youthful skin, terms that come to mind are smooth, soft, supple, plump and radiant.
Unfortunately as your body begins to age your biological skin functions slow or become abnormal leaving you with wrinkled, dry thick and dull looking skin. TransGenesis crème is packed with ingredients that will kick start your skin helping it to function like it did years ago, transcending time and giving you a new beginning.

History of DMK Transgenesis Creme
After 40 years of research, biochemist DMK Skin Co has launched the world’s most potent and effective luxury age management crème – TransGenesis™. At DMK Skin Co we pride ourselves in blending botanical formulations with the skin’s own biochemistry. Danné has used Red Caviar Enzymes from the cold fjords of Norway in TransGenesis crème, to deliver a smoother, more refined texture as they gently exfoliate and renew skin cells.
Tripeptides and Oligopeptides stimulate fibroblast cells and collagen production to give you firmer, tighter looking skin. Anyone who is concerned about the effects of ageing skin will benefit from TransGenesis crème.

Active ingredients and their functions
Glycosaminoglycans provide plumper, fuller looking skin while reducing fine lines.
Filaggrin Modulators help restore skin barrier functions reducing TEWL (trans-epidermal water loss).
Amino Acids, Essential Fatty Acids, Proteins and Nutrients produce cell development and increase the longevity of your skin’s healthy vibrancy.

A Little Background About Janine Testa & Holistic Skin Care by Janine

About Janine

Janine Testa, Owner & NYS Licensed Esthetician, has always had a passion for Skin Care and Makeup Artistry.  Her decision to attend Esthetics school was made when her Mother brought home a syllabus for the course from a local Buffalo Beauty school.  She found her niche!

After graduating from Continental School of Beauty Culture in 2006, Janine  felt a strong desire to learn more.  She took on a role as an apprentice for two and a half years under a CIDESCO diplomat (CIDESCO is the world’s most prestigious accreditation for Aesthetics and Beauty Therapies) to continue her education and truly hone her trade.

In June 2008,  Holistic Skin Care by Janine/ Aesthetics by Janine was founded and opened  in Kenmore, NY, providing waxing services and facials using Eminence Organic Skin Care.  The business flourished and Janine developed an amazing, loyal clientele.

During the past 10 years,  Janine has continued her grow her knowledge of skin care with extensive training from Eminence Organic Skin Care. Now, Janine’s training and knowledge continues with the addition of natural and botanical  DMK Paramedical Skin Care to her services.   Enzyme therapy and skin revision programs specifically designed for each individual client allow her to address the underlying causes of skin conditions such as acne, age management, pigmentation, rosacea and eczema.

Holistic Skin Care by Janine moved to a beautiful, more spacious  location in  Williamsville, NY in February 2016.  Janine is excited to bring  more advanced skin care and facial services to the Buffalo area at the new location.

Janine’s dedication to providing natural, result orientated skin care services in Buffalo NY continues to remain steadfast as she is constantly searching for the best skin care products, services, and technology for her clients.
