Biotin And Hair Loss: Is Vitamin B7 The Best Supplement for Restoring Hair Loss? Did you know that the best-known supplement for restoring hair loss is biotin? This vitamin is also referred to as B7 and Vitamin H. If you have ever received a B12 shot from our doctor's or nurse's for increased energy, biotin works along those same lines. Biotin and hair loss are directly related.
Biotin, a naturally occurring substance in our bodies promotes hair re-growth and aids in the process of breaking down unsaturated fats. Studies have shown that a lack of vitamin H results in hair loss.
One way vitamin H prevents loss is by increasing the hair’s elasticity, which guards against breakage. B7 also thickens the cuticles to give you the appearance of a fuller head of hair.
Biotin is a member of the B-complex vitamin family. It was discovered in the 1930s and originally called vitamin H. In the 1940s, researchers found that when baby chickens were fed a high amount of raw egg whites they lost the hair around their eyes and developed a skin rash. The symptoms vanished after egg yolk was added to their diet. Food scientists determined there is a sugar and protein substance in raw egg whites that binds with biotin to prevent absorption. (That is why some athletes who drink raw eggs suffer from hair loss.) The egg yolk was identified as one of the best sources of biotin in diets.
Other food sources of biotin are vegetables, liver, milk, fish, grains, fruit, and nuts. For hair loss sufferers who do not want to eat a huge amount of liver and eggs (ugh!) to provide them with the necessary biotin, there are supplements and shots available.
Although, biotin assists in the metabolism of fatty acids, carbohydrates and protein, its major benefit is strengthening hair and nails. Males and females who experience loss can restore their luxurious mane to its former shine by getting Biotin Shots.
A lack of biotin in the body can affect the condition of your hair and the deficiency can result: *Thinning *Breakage *Loss
Biotin also keeps the skin healthy and reportedly boosts your energy level! Women who are pregnant or nursing may require an increased need for this supplement. Many women during pregnancy tend to be at a higher risk of deficiency. Research shows nearly half of pregnant women have reduced levels of this supplement, which can lead to hair loss.
Vitamin H shots are recommended as a safe remedy to counteract hair loss in adults and children. Biotin is one treatment that works wonders for sufferers. B7 has also shown to be helpful in maintaining blood sugar levels.
Many biotin users report visible improvement in their hair, skin, nails, and energy level. The ideal amount of daily usage depends on the individual but an intake of 30 to 100 micrograms per day is considered a normal dosage for adults. For the millions of women and men experiencing loss, biotin can help re-grow hair to regain your crowning glory!
One of the greatest benefits of biotin and hair loss prevention, is there are no known side effects! These vitamins are water-soluble meaning they are not stored by the body so you cannot take too many! Vitamin H is flushed out of your system and new shots must be taken every week to promote healthy hair growth.
So, what’s stopping you from obtaining Biotin for your hair loss? If you suffer from male/female pattern baldness or other hair loss disorders come in today for a Biotin Shot. Cost $35. Package specials are also available.
Body chemical peels even skin tone, helps to firm and tighten and minimize evidence of sun damage to skin. After receiving a body chemical peel, patients use a light moisturizing cream on a daily basis to help maintain results. The purpose of a body chemical peel is to penetrate and improve the texture and surface appearance of the body skin. Many body chemical peels are done in conjunction with a facial chemical peel. Body chemical peels may be a slightly stronger concentration than chemical peels used for the face. The Aesthetician administer body chemical peels as a series of treatments, rather than a single treatment at full strength. Usually, body chemical peel sessions are spaced a month or two apart, to optimize results. We can peel any area of the skin that you want to remove the signs of wrinkles, firm and tighten.
What is it? The one hour-long Facial combines two skincare techniques: Microdermabrasion and Oxygen Therapy.
Microdermabrasion allows you to treat lines, wrinkles, dull dehydrated skin, sun damaged skin, skin laxity and acne scarring by using a controlled method of skin exfoliation, which uses crystals to gently lift and remove dull, dead skin cells, layer by layer.
Oxygen Therapy works with active ingredients in the serum to stimulate oxygen, re-energise skin cells and reverse free radical damage, thus plumping up tired and sallow skin, providing new healthy skin and reversing the sign of ageing.
We say: Phoenix, Arizona pollution, lack of sleep, stress and a long-haul flight have resulted in seriously lackluster and dull skin, so I was dying to try this treatment. Off I went to the Suddenly Slimmer Day and Med Spa for my bespoke Crystal Clear Deluxe Facial. The therapist started off by removing my makeup with a gentle cleanser. Then she started on my skin with the microdermabrasion machine, a mini powerful vacuum if you will, which she used across my face and neck to smooth skin and remove dead cells. When I have facials I like to really feel the treatment working and this didn't disappoint.
Next up, the Oxygen Therapy. The therapist massaged my face with an active serum first, which was very refreshing, before using her oxygen machine. Now if you're ticklish or sensitive, beware. The machine delivers oxygen to your skin by spraying mist onto your face, which can be a little uncomfortable on the thin layers of skin around the neck and eyes. This magically activates the serum for a healthy glow. She finished off with a moisturiser and a blissful head massage.
In summary: I was looking for immediate results (I'm a little impatient) and this came up trumps. Gone was my lifeless skin, replaced with a dewy complexion and rosy cheeks. And dare I say it, in no need of foundation. It felt really smooth too. If you're looking for a quick fix, then this one's for you, though for the full benefits, five treatments are recommended. ~ Jennifer Penny~

Face Taping is a Non-invasive procedure where strips of surgical tape, which are slightly elastic and highly porous permit the special mineral solution to be absorbed through the skin. Then Placed strategically on the face to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, as well as to lift the eyebrow, jaw line and accent the cheekbones, with the entire process taking only about 50 minutes. Face taping is best to receive one per week until you have achieved the desired results. Because the face is such a mobile and active part of the body (we smile, frown, laugh and stretch our facial skin) it is recommended that you come in periodically for maintenance. *Note: The human skin is made up of minerals. The more you hydrate the skin with minerals the tighter it becomes.

QUESTIONS and ANSWERS
What is the Fraxel Laser? Fraxel is a laser used to treat damaged and aging skin by harmlessly penetrating the outer layer of skin, but only selectively targeting the bad skin. This method protects the skin from enduring too much damage at once and eliminates much of the downtime associated with CO or erbium laser resurfacing treatment.
Is it FDA-approved? The Fraxel Laser has received FDA clearances for skin resurfacing procedures; the photocoagulation of pigmented lesions, such as lentigos (age spots); solar lentigos (sun spots) and dyschromia; treatment of periorbital wrinkles; and for dermatological conditions requiring the coagulation of soft tissue. It is also approved for the treatment of scars and wrinkles.
What are the benefits of the Fraxel Laser treatment? This treatment eliminates old epidermal pigmented cells. It also penetrates deeply into the dermis. What conditions can be treated with the Fraxel technology? Wrinkles, poor texture, large pores, sun spots, brown spots, scars, melasma, and uneven pigmentation can be treated successfully with the Fraxel laser. Optimal improvement is usually visible in about two to three months.
How many treatments will I need? We recommend between 3-5 treatments for optimal results..
What happens before treatment? Your skin will be cleansed thoroughly and a topical anesthetic will be applied. The procedure is relatively painless, and takes about 15 minutes to conduct. It is safe for all skin types.
What are the side effects after treatment? Side effects are minimal and usually limited to a sunburn-like redness which disappears in about 24 hours. Within 24 hours, new epidermal skin will develop and your skin will have a bronze appearance which can last from three days up to two weeks depending on what level of treatment you have received. As the new epidermal tissue replaces the damaged tissue, your skin will flake off. Moisturizer can counteract some of the flaking effect.
When can I go back to work? Typically patients find they can go back to work soon after treatment or the next day.
Can I wear makeup or shave right away? You may apply make-up or shave soon after treatment.
What can I do to protect my new skin? Absolutely be sure to wear at least SPF-30 sunscreen and apply twice a day. You must completely avoid the sun and take extra care to protect your skin from more damage.
