WHAT IS ACUTONICS:
Acutonics is an energy based non-invasive therapeutic system, rooted in Oriental medicine, that consists of applying precision calibrated tuning forks to the acupuncture and acupressure points as a way to access and balance the meridians, chakras and energy centers of the body. The therapeutic effects of Acutonics produces a similar response to that of acupuncture without the use of needles.
 
BENEFITS OF ACUTONICS:
Practitioners of Acutonics have treated clients with a variety of different concerns.
It can be used in conjunction with massage, facials, acupuncture, reiki, craniosacral or by itself for:
-Stress reduction and deep relaxation
-Pain and muscle tension relief
-moving blockages and balancing the energy systems
-chakra balancing
-revitalizing and boosting the energy
 
We offer a cutting edge anti-aging acutonics facial that provides a treatment alternative to facial rejuvenation acupuncture or microcurrent. This treatment addresses certain areas of the face which are difficult to treat with needles, like the neck, chin and jowl. Additionally, like microcurrent, select vibrations produce a lifting and tightening affect on the muscles and skin, while other intervals produce a plumping, hydrating and relaxing affect on areas of wrinkles and dehydration. This treatment is based on the Facial Soundscapes Harmonic Renewal taught by Mary Elizabeth Wakefield.

Easy Skin Care Tips
for Brown Spots and Anti Aging   

To fade brown spots on the face and to smooth out wrinkles or to diminish fine lines, people use retinol or better yet more organic products that have natural vitamin A (retinol) in their skin care line.  Retinol is a technical (chemical) name for Vitamin A, and and it is a prescription used as a topical treatment for your face.  It is used also for mild acne, and severe acne (acutane). Other names closely associated with retinol are tretinoin, isothermon, and retinal palmitate.  In addition to helping your skin, retinol, especially strong retinol, can cause irritation, sensitivity, dryness, and/or redness of the face. And retinol can make your skin more susceptible to the sun’s ultraviolet rays and make dark spots or age spots darker so be sure to use it at night only and sparingly.

In natural forms Vitamin A is found in green and yellow vegetables especially carrots and spinach; and is also found in egg yokes, fish liver oil, marine fish, and liver. So please eat an assortment of these great foods.  Retinol works by stimulating the production of our natural collagen (moisture) and as you know when our skin is plumped up from moisture, our fine line wrinkles kinda disappear. I used the analogy with my clients about a grape. That grape is big and beautiful, when we get too much sun on the grape and not enough moisture because the sun is making it evaporate, that lovely grape turns into a raisin…all wrinkles. However if you overdo retinol, you overstimulate and suck the life force out of the cells and there is no life force underneath.  Your skin looks lifeless, coloress. Not plump, nor vibrant like it was born to be and look. I personally in my 60s can’t or won’t use retinol. I look older.

What can you do? There are several things such as using more natural retinol alternatives such as Eminence‘s new anti-aging line. They use chicory root and tara tree complex that “mimics and outperforms the oft prescribed conventional retinol. In Ayurvedic, Gotu Kola is the best form of retinol or Vitamin A and is used in Helena Meyer‘s anti-aging line. Get gentle but effective enzyme peels. I had a client whose face looked dirty from living in Colorado, playing in the sun, and in her 30’s. Well, after I exfoliated her using gotu kola, her skin appeared lighter, brighter, and more youthful.  She, needless to say, was thrilled.  She returns monthly for a facial, and I alternate her facials with enzyme peels or the gotu kola exfoliant. Gentle, no down time nor irritation, but a nice bright, refreshed natural- looking skin.  She also helps maintain this by using a couple of lightening or brightening products at home, and of course using natural SPF’s every 2 hours on her skin. So there are natural, safer alternatives for helping brown spots, wrinkles, and anti aging without a prescription or toxic chemicals.

To Recap, start trying:
A. Natural retinol alternative to retinol: chicory root and Tara tree complex such as Eminence’s.
B. Gotu Kola complex …Ayurvedic
C. Enzyme Peels
D. Eating balance of Vitamin A foods
E. SPF organic …apply often, every one or two hours.
F. I also like a gentle lactic acid exfoliant.
G. Patience…all of these safer, natural things take time, but you are going in the right direction and your skin will love you.  Also start teaching your pre teens or grand children.

Always sending love to your beautiful skin, BeeGee Stivers Licensed Esthetician

(editors note:  When using retinol or any deep or aggressive skincare treatment, use caution with enzyme peels.  While enzymes are more gentle than a chemical peel, the combination of retinol with any peel can cause irritation.  Always let your esthetician know if you are currently using any prescription or treatment for your skin)
