MLA Skincare Celebrates Three Year Anniversary
MLA Skincare, the skin care products company founded by Dr. Mary Lee Amerian, is proud to announce that we are now celebrating our three-year anniversary! It seems hard to believe, but three years have passed since the MLA Skincare products were introduced.
MLA Skincare products are unique in that they are designed to be extremely effective in their anti-aging and skin soothing ability while at the same time formulated to be very gentle on the skin. Although effectiveness and gentleness may at first seem to be at odds with each other, MLA Skincare products accomplish this through the uniqueness of their formulations.
Any ingredients with even a remote possibility of being harsh on the skin, such as hydroquinone, propylene glycol, and glycolic acid, are carefully excluded from the MLA formulations. In their place, many gentle ingredients, including peptides, vitamins, and botanicals, are combined to achieve the desired results. Instead of using only one or a few active ingredients, which is how many other skin care lines are formulated, MLA Skincare products are formulated with a minimum of 14 active ingredients in every skin care product. This is the explanation for how MLA Skincare products can be highly effective in their anti-aging and skin soothing ability, and yet be gentle on the skin at the same time.
As we celebrate our three-year anniversary, MLA Skincare is proud and happy to make available the following special offer:
MLA Skincare Special Offer – Free Eye Serum
In celebration of our three-year anniversary, Dr. Amerian is pleased to include a free eye serum, a $75 value, with the purchase of any two MLA Skincare products.
Virtually everyone will benefit from MLA Power Cream, Multivitamin Serum,and Eye Serum. MLA Power Cream reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, evens skin tone and color, and moisturizes the skin. It is the signature product of MLA Skincare and is a very potent defense against the signs of aging skin. MLA Multivitamin serum provides exceptional antioxidant protection to guard against the damage from free radicals that contribute to the visible signs of aging skin. MLA Multivitamin serum also reduces the appearance of fine lines, redness, and brown spots. MLA Eye Serum improves crow’s feet lines and skin texture, and reduces under-eye puffiness and dark circles. Together, these three products work synergistically to improve the appearance of the face and reduce the signs of aging.
In addition, MLA Soothing Serum is designed for the needs of people with sensitive and easily irritated skin. It has been specially formulated to prevent and reduce the appearance of redness and to immediately relieve mild skin irritation. MLA Soothing Serum is an outstanding redness reduction serum. MLA Brightening Serum is an excellent serum for reducing brown spots and for livening up the skin. MLA Brightening Serum reduces the formation of unwanted pigment and helps control melanin.
Coolsculpting by Zeltiq for Non-Invasive Fat Reduction
The Coolsculpting by Zeltiq procedure reduces fat by chilling it for one hour. Ideal candidates for the procedure have discrete and localized fat bulges on the abdomen, love handles, and back. Coolsculpting treatments result in noticeable and natural looking fat reduction in the treated areas.
The procedure is done by applying the Coolsculpting applicator to the fatbulge for one hour. During this time, the applicator chills the fat. The exposure of fat cells to cooling begins a process of natural fat cell removal. Patients remain very comfortable during the time the applicator is on the skin.
If you would like to discuss whether you are a candidate for the Coolsculpting procedure, please call our office at 310-829-9396 for an appointment.up to date and most effective treatments possible.
Brown Spots, Brown Pigment, and Sun Damaged Skin
Q: I have a lot of brown spots, brown pigment, and sun damage on my skin. Which treatment would be best for me?
A: We recommend the Fraxel Restore Dual laser to our patients who want to improve their brown spots and abnormal brown pigment in their skin. Treatments with the Fraxel Restore Dual result in the rapid clearance of abnormal brown pigment from the skin, including the pigment found in brown spots, brown patches, and sun spots. In addition, skin color following the treatment is much more uniform and much less blotchy.
Non-Surgical Eyelid Tightening and Eyelid Rejuvenation
During the past few years, there have been dramatic and revolutionary advances in laser technology. By applying these new technologies to the eyelids, it has become possible to rejuvenate and tighten the eyelid skin in nearly all patients without surgery. Today, surgery only needs to be done on the most severely aged eyelids.
