During the beginning of the radio show both women got to talking about how the skin tells a story about a person especially regarding their diet and habits. One take away from these experts is that acne below the nose is considered to be due to hormonal causes and above the nose is typically diet related. Both women agreed that B vitamins are great for treating acne - especially B5. B Vitamins are incorporated into several of the IV treatments at Nurse Fiona The Medical Spa and can also be administered via injection. Benefits such as increased fat and carbohydrate metabolism, energy, mood and mental clarity typically last one week. Treatments can also be done daily for detoxification or a metabolism boost.
Additionally, Josette and Fiona discussed that a high sugar diet is very aging to the skin. Glycation, or the process in which sugar molecules attach themselves to proteins such as collagen, stiffens them and causes them to deform. The result is sagging skin and wrinkles which are worsened by smoking and sun exposure! Renowned dermatologists, Dr. Lipman and Dr. Brandt and even celebs such as Gwyneth Paltrow have also caught on to the harmfulness of sugar to the skin. Not only does sugar break down collagen, it also weakens the immune system and increases bacteria growth! YIKES!! Another reason to pass on the soda!
Both Josette and Fiona are extremely knowledgeable about the benefits of vitamin supplementation and agreed that a very important benefit to having vitamins delivered via IV or intra-muscularly is that the absorption rate of vitamins increases from about 40% to 100%!! This is amazing for those who need that added boost to body and skin. Did you know that IV vitamins such as glutathione post-chemotherapy can help to detoxify the body? Others exposed to heavy metals such as those with Copper IUDs or those who fly frequently may also want to try IV Vitamins for detoxification benefits. In addition to those that are suffering from heavy metal toxicity, other people can benefit from IV vitamins such as those that are seeking increased metabolism, mood and radiant skin.
Speaking of radiance, Fiona recommends Boston area brides seeking increased metabolism, mood as well as stress relief and radiant skin book a LiFT Beauty IV treatment combined with a facial for an amazing result a few days pre-wedding.
