Four-In-One

Our multi-tasking products, Amazing Base, PurePressed Base, Glow time and Dream Tint, provide four important functions in one: Foundation, Concealer, Sunscreen and Active Skin Care Benefits.

Because we use pure mineral pigment with no fillers such as talc, our foundations and concealers give exceptional coverage that requires minimal touch-ups.

Six Jane Iredale products have earned the Skin Cancer Foundation’s Seal of Recommendation. To earn this seal, a manufacturer must provide scientific data showing that its products sufficiently and safely aid in the prevention of sun-induced damage to the skin.

 Adherence

Our minerals bind together upon application so they resist running, creasing, and smearing. They can easily be removed with a cleanser or our special micro-fiber cloth, Magic Mitt,which requires only water for effective cleansing.

 Minimal Allergy Risk

Our products are safety tested, allergy tested, clinically tested and dermatologist tested  to ensure avoidance of any ingredients that may be skin sensitizers.

 Anti-Inflammatory

We make a conscious effort to include anti-inflammatory ingredients in our products because we believe that this can measurable contribute to skin health.

Natural Preservatives

Where preservatives are needed, we use a combination of natural preservatives, always excluding parabens and phenoxyethanol.

 Particle Size

We have tested all of our minerals under laboratory conditions. Results show that there are no nano-size minerals in any of our products.

Range of Foundation Shades

The variety in our shades is sufficient to satisfy the needs of over 40 Countries.

Medical Esthetics! Get the Facts from SPA LaDonna

Medical Esthetics, LaDonna McWhorterSome may be unfamiliar with the term medical esthetics, and miss out on opportunities to help replenish and perfect their skin. Medical esthetics specializes in advanced skin treatments and procedures. Generally, these are known specifically as advanced facials, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and various laser treatments including skin rejuvenation and laser hair removal.

 

Medical estheticians specialize in skincare treatments that occur within the dermal and epidermal skin layers. These certified professionals land somewhere  between dermatologists and estheticians. SPA La Donna is a full service medical esthetics spa, and can assist clients with anti-aging and beautifying treatments that can almost instantly remove years off of one’s appearance. Much more affordable than plastic surgery, these procedures also help replenish the skin and is a healthier approach to skin care.

Some common treatments by medical estheticians, such as La Donna McWhorter, include:

chemical peels: a body treatment technique used to improve and smooth the texture of the skin, often facial skin, using a chemical solution that causes the dead skin to slough off and eventually peel off. The regenerated skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin.

microdermabrasion: facial exfoliation procedure in which the top layer of skin is abraded away with ultrafine crystals of aluminum oxide or other ingredients. Microdermabrasion improves and smoothes the skin’s surface and can minimize imperfections like blemishes, fine lines, and signs of sun damage.

laser (skin resurfacing) treatments:  a popular cosmetic procedure that can help rejuvenate the skin and reduce the effects of the sun, aging, and some facial skin disorders.

Look More Youthful and Rested Decatur, Alabama! Cosmetic Uses of Botox®

b0e23739-433b-4a20-bcb2-66d9bdaa66d6
Spa La Donna is a fully-functional and operational medical spa, with doctors and trained, certified medical staff in-house that have been using Botox® for years to successfully treat wrinkles and facial creases. Spa La Donna is also one of the few medical day spas in the Decatur/Huntsville, Alabama area that offers Botox® injections.
Botox® is popular because it is simple to receive with little or no recovery time. Botox® is gently injected with a fine needle, and most patients claim only minor discomfort. Afterward, the facial muscles relax as it begins to block signals from the nerves. The injected muscle can’t contract. That makes the wrinkles relax and soften. Most often used on forehead lines, and the lines around the eyes (crow’s feet), and frown lines, Botox® has become one of the most popular anti-aging treatments in the industry.
Getting Botox® takes only a few minutes and doesn’t require anesthesia. It generally takes three to seven days to take full effect, and will last as long as six months. Repeated use of Botox® often make wrinkles appear less severe with time because muscles are being trained to relax. Botox® is the brand name of a toxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. Contact La Donna McWhorter or the staff of Spa La Donna to make your appointment.

How much Botox® do I need?
Botox® is sold by the unit, and the amount of units needed vary from client to client. In general, and eyebrow lift and crow’s feet treatment utilize 7 to 20 units. Forehead lines generally use 10-30 units. Spa La Donna’s medical staff will consult with you to determine the recommended units needed for the desired effect. While most often utilized for the upper face, Botox® can also be used around the mouth to lift to your lips, on the neck, and on the chin and around the nose. Botox® has become such a popular treatment due to its price, as it is far more affordable than traditional plastic surgery procedures.

Non-wounding Chemical Peels Maintain the Health of your Skin

Chemical Peels, CosmedixIn today’s world, the term chemical peel has practically been embedded in our everyday vocabulary. Even if skin rejuvenation does not interest you in the least, it is likely that you are somewhat familiar with the procedure and its intended results. But for chemical peel ‘virgins,’ the following is a brief explanation:

A chemical peel involves the application of a chemical solution onto the skin, causing it to blister and eventually peel off. The regenerated skin is usually smooth and less wrinkled than the old skin.

Therein lies the problem of a majority of chemical peels. Most people—including experts in the industry—believe that blistering, or wounding, is a necessary component in the success of a chemical peel. What they don’t know, however, is that blistering not only causes injury to the skin, but damages its overall health as well.

Traditional chemical peels wound the skin due to their high level of pH acid. This wounding is believed to send a message to the skin that it must, in turn, repair itself by forming new skin. While partly true—a wound in the epidermis notifies the skin to stimulate new fibroblasts—it is not the best approach to achieving healthy, younger-looking skin.

What if there was a chemical peel that not only gave you beautiful, smooth skin, but also maintained its health? Fortunately, CosMedix has developed peels that stimulate, not irritate.

Donna Killian, National Director of Education, offers a logical analogy on this topic: “The subject of wounding versus non-wounding chemical peels is similar to getting into a house. There are two ways you could go about entering—either by breaking in or using a key. While breaking a window would give you the same end result as a key—getting into the house—it would be a much more violent approach and cause a big mess. A key, however, would not only get you inside the house, but it would be the safest way to do so.”

In summary, wounding peels are similar to breaking into a home—they cause damage to the skin. Non-wounding peels, on the other hand, offer the same outcome but protect the skin’s health. “All too often, people focus on the end result, but what matters most is how we get there. The path you take to achieve radiant, beautiful skin is vital,” Killian says.

CosMedix’s peels stimulate healthy cell turnover by communicating to the cells’ receptor sites, not by simply blistering the skin. CosMedix’s line of chirally correct chemical peels encourages the body’s natural response to a chemical peel rather than forcing it to become inflamed and irritated. Containing ingredients such as encapsulated retinol, L-lactic acid and blueberry antioxidants, CosMedix’s peels minimize inflammation and optimize the health of the skin.

Depending on the condition of your skin, you may still experience some irritation from CosMedix’s peels. But, you can rest assured knowing that you’ve taken a much safer path to beautiful skin.

Deep Sea Peel – A non-acid peel that stimulates cell turnover, generates collagen and increases NMF (natural moisture factor).

Benefit Peel – A powerful antioxidant that delivers vital nutrients to the skin with calming benefits of vitamin C.

Pomegranate Peel – Helps prevent free radical damage and increases the life span of healthy cells.

Blueberry Jessner Peel – An excellent acne treatment that improves the appearance of mature skin and brightens skin tone.

Purity Peel – Clears skin of acne and blemishes while reducing inflammation and exfoliating the skin.
