On Thursday September 24, 2015 A E Skin held its fourth annual Red Carpet Event. We offered one-night-only promotions on various products and services. Photo opportunities were available on the Red Carpet and we showcased our new treatment room. We were delighted to introduce two new products. The first is the IS Clinical Active Serum, a natural blend of botanical ingredients used for anti-aging, brightening, and acne. It is a popular alternative to the A E Skin Brightening Cream for those who have sensitive skin. The other new product is the NuFace Trinity Pro, the at home five minute facelift. It is a device using microcurrent technology which stimulates the muscles in the face to provide an instant lift. Over 20 people attended and had a great time. Raffle prizes included products such as the A E Skin Hydrating Serum and Triple Antioxidant Serum. The best dressed won a Forever Young BBL IPL photofacial treatment. Another new and exciting contest was our Botox vial contest, where guests suessed the number of vials in the jar and the winner received a gift bag. Support was provided by Allergan, makers of Botox, Juvederm, Voluma, and Latisse, Elta MD, and IS Clinical. Refreshments were catered from Whole Foods Market and everyone in attendance received a free gift bag. We always have so much fun at our events and we look forward to our Holiday Party at the end of the year.
What is the IS Clinical Active Serum?
The IS Clinical Active Serum is a natural blend of botanical ingredients. It contains extracts from bilberry, mushroom, sugar cane, and willow bark. It is also paraben-free, making it perfect for those who prefer using natural ingredients. It is also great for people who are sensitive to retinol and retin-A.
What does the IS Clinical Active Serum do?
The IS Clinical Active Serum is used for anti-aging, brightening, and even acne. It has multiple
ingredients to exfoliate the skin, improving fine lines and wrinkles. The natural exfoliants also unclog pores to treat acne breakouts. It also contains multiple ingredients to brighten the skin, fighting dark spots that appear with sun exposure. Other benefits of the IS Clinical Active Serum are that it smoothens and softens the skin and reduces pore size.
How do you use the IS Clinical Active Serum?
The IS Clinical Active Serum is easy to use. It is a liquid and comes in a bottle with a dropper. Apply three to five drops to a clean, dry face at night. You will feel a tingling sensation on the skin which means that it is working. Apply moisturizer afterwards. The bottle lasts approximately three months with nightly use.
When do you see results from the IS Clinical Active Serum?
While some people see the results from the IS Clinical Active Serum after only a few days, most people see results in four to six weeks with nightly use.

What is Botox?
Botox is a purified protein which is injected into the skin to temporarily relax the muscles in order to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles for a more youthful appearance. Botox is an incredibly popular treatment, and millions of people undergo the procedure each year.
What Advantages Does Botox Offer?
The biggest advantage Botox offers is a more youthful appearance, free from fine lines and wrinkles. The advantages don't stop there, however. Botox is also quick, easy and effective. It is non-invasive, affordable and nearly painless. Plus, it is reversible. If you don't love the way you look, you can go back to your previous, wrinkled appearance in just a few months if you would like.
What Conditions Can Botox Be Used to Treat?
While Botox is best known as a safe and effective treatment for fine lines and wrinkles, Botox injections from A E Skin in Encino can be used for many additional purposes as well. Botox is also used to treat eye spasms, excessive sweating, migraines and urinary incontinence.
What is the Recovery Period Like?
Botox recovery is generally quick and easy, with next to no downtime. In fact, you should be clear to resume your normal daily activities as soon as the procedure is over.
There are a few activities you will need to avoid, however. Avoid strenuous heat, alcohol consumption, and exercise for 24 hours after the treatment and do not lie down flat for four hours after the treatment, as this can cause the Botox drug to move into unintended areas. You may also want to put an ice pack on the area if you start to develop any bruising or swelling; don’t worry we will provide you one free of charge at your appointment. Otherwise, you can continue with your day as normal.
Does Botox Hurt?
No, Dr. Alex has designed the painless Botox technique that our patients love. It is a combination of things including using preserved saline, using the smallest possible needles, applying cold air to numb the area, distracting the patient by massage, and Dr. Alex’s gentle touch. Try it for yourself.
If you're tired of looking in the mirror, only to see fine lines and wrinkles, make today the day you finally do something about it. Call Dr. Alex at A E Skin in Encino at 818-835-1833 to set up your appointment for Botox injections today.
Is your skin starting to get loose and wrinkled? Do you want to improve these signs of aging without going under the knife? Now you can age gracefully using the NuFACE Trinity Pro as the at home 5-minute facelift, now available at A E Skin.
What is the NuFACE Trinity Pro?
The NuFACE Trinity Pro is a new at home device cleared by the FDA clinically proven to improve your face's contour, improve your skin's tone, and reduce your wrinkles.
How does the NuFACE Trinity Pro work?
The NuFACE Trinity Pro works using micro-current technology. Micro-current therapy provides low-level currents to your facial muscles, just like your body's natural current. This current stimulates the muscles to produce energy in the form of ATP. This causes the skin to make collagen and elastin, which tighten the skin to give you a rejuvenated appearance.
When do you see results with the NuFACE Trinity Pro?
The NuFACE Trinity Pro provides instant results, and you see more benefit with continued use. It is used for five minutes a day for five days a week and impressive results are seen in as early as 60 days. People love it because you see the results instantly and most people feel nothing at all when using the NuFACE Trinity Pro.
Does the NuFACE Trinity Pro really work?
- 85% of users of the NuFACE Trinity experienced improved facial contour
- 80% of users of the NuFACE Trinity reported their skin felt smoother
- 77% of users of the NuFACE Trinity reported their face looked more toned
How does the NuFACE Trinity Pro compare to other treatments like Botox, Juvederm, Voluma, Ultherapy, and Laser Skin Tightening?
The NuFACE Trinity Pro works as a great complement to Botox, Juvederm, Voluma, Ultherapy, and Laser Skin Tightening. Botox relaxes overactive muscles and Juvederm and Voluma provide volume to the face. The NuFACE Trinity Pro stimulates collagen formation by getting the muscles to produce more ATP. While Ultherapy and Laser Skin Tightening work to produce collagen in certain layers of the skin, the NuFACE Trinity Pro stimulates collagen in different layers of the skin. Therefore the NuFACE Trinity Pro is a perfect complement to these other treatments. Dr. Alex recommends waiting one week after a Botox treatment before using the NuFACE Trinity Pro to allow for full effects of the Botox.
