"The skin as a living organ - mirrors the overall constitution of the individual" - Dr. Erin Madigan-Fleck
Dermatherapy combines naturopathy, integrative skin therapeutics and nutritional wellness to address some of the most common and problematic skin conditions. Nutritional status,supplements and lifestyle modification have been known to profoundly affect many skin conditions-even those most resistant to traditional therapy. Naturophoria focuses on holistic & integrative skin care through the tenets of naturopathic philosophy, aesthetic sciences, and non invasive techniques.
Naturophoria's personalized approach distinguishes that each person is unique as the skin concerns that are presented. Our goal is to address the possible cause of any skin condition, and not just address the symptoms.Through our methods in consultation & evaluation, emphasis is placed on addressing the biological dynamics and arriving at a comprehensive program to address individual needs. The protocols that are utilized include both holistic and integrative approaches to encourage skin vitality and overall dermal homeostasis. Functional cosmeceuticals,biocompatible skin products and and integrative procedures are also an integral part of naturopathic dermatherapy.
Naturophoria focuses on holistic and integrative skin care approaches through naturopathic philosophy, aesthetic sciences and non- invasive techniques.
Is a time honored philosophy of healing that incorporates the therapeutic elements of nature encouraging the inherent ability of the body to establish, maintain and restore health and overall wellness.
The process of healing includes symptoms which are an expression of the life force attempting to heal itself. The skin is a mirror reflecting overall health, and a vital organ indicating internal wellness by observation of its functional status. At Naturophoria, we avoid the application of harsh chemicals and procedures that may cause harm to the skin or may suppress the natural healing process and biological functions of the skin. Rather, we employ techniques, modalities and products that encourage overall skin homeostasis.
ImmunoEsthetics is a compassionate approach to skin wellness for individuals with immune conditions that present reactive skin and multiple chemical sensitivities. Treatments are directed at maintaining skin integrity utilizing corneotherapeutic skin products with health as a primary consideration.
Skin sensitivities and acne account for the majority of problematic skin conditions. Our approach is to encourage barrier function, support the microbiome, and customize a regime and program based on our skin diagnostics assessment, integrative modalities and compatible skin products.
A specialized approach in esthetics supporting the natural healing process of the skin often compromised by radiation, chemotherapy, and medications frequently resulting in skin sensitivities. The goal is to support the integrity of the skin through various application of specialty products and techniques designed to nurture the skin and the spirit. We have earned our International Certification with OTI International, Canada.
Microcurrent utilizes unique electrical waveforms transmitted through contact probes producing a non- invasive energy for a multitude of skin health benefits. Microcurrent has the capacity to work internally on the muscle fibers through various frequencies to encourage collagen production, and help to re-educate nerve & muscle cells thereby assisting in the tonicity of the face. Microcurrent also has a regenerative effect increasing the local metabolism of cells by encouraging the activity of ATP, and peripheral circulation. We use the TAMA Microcurrent systems exclusively.
We offer several types of microdermabrasion and skin exfoliation techniques including traditional microdermabrasion, diamond crystal free, organic crystals and Dermaplanning. Microdermabrasion and related exfoliation techniques offers a non-chemical approach to assist in creating a healthier state of skin through improving microcirculation, facilitating blood flow and enhanced delivery of speciality post care products.
Healthy lymphatic function is considered a primary indicator for the assessment of stagnant and congestive skin. Poor lymph activity is directly attributed to puffiness and dark circles under the eyes, swelling of the face, and distention. MLD performed with subtle massage techniques, or pulsed suction assists to facilitate waste transport and encourage the revitalization of cells through oxygenation and balance through healthy blood flow.
LED is innovative light therapy that provides stimulus to the skin on a cellular level. LED wavelengths of light assist in collagen synthesis, circulation, lymphatics and help to boost the development of ATP during cellular activity that processes nutrients. LED is an excellent treatment for both surface & sub surface rejuvenation, and is highly beneficial for acne, rosacea, congested skin, sun damage and assists with hyperpigmentation. We use LightStim devices exclusively.
Radio frequency aids in the general revitalization of the skin tissue through thermal energy emissions to the skin. The application of warming RF electrodes along with a conductive gel deeply facilitate treatment and tonification. Alternating stimulus with a steel cryogenic device creates additional action on skin firming and toning offering a revitalized appearance. Benefits of radio frequency treatment include the instigation of cellular function ,stimulation of collagen, and assisting in the appearance skin laxity of sun damaged skin. Treatments are targeted through a series of applications.
The Jet Clear treatment utilizes an air - jet propelled device that pressure infuses saline water to effectively deep cleanse the skin and "pressure wash" the epidermis. The treatment is designed for all skin types and will improve the appearance of surface hydration, texture and congestion of the skin. The Jet Clear is highly effective for acne, comedones, skin texture, and dehydration leaving the skin feeling refreshed and well hydrated.
Ultrasonic modalities use sound waves that propagate energy introducing thermal effects to increase cell metabolism, stimulation of collagen, and encouraged lymphatic flow. Oxygenation is encouraged by increased blood circulation, and beneficial ingredients may permeate the skin at an increased rate . Cavitation creates a thermal exfoliation with an ultrasonic "blade" and herbal or floral waters to gently exfoliate the skin without excoriating the skin. Excellent for sensitive skins that need both exfoliation and hydration
Mesoporation is based on what is referred to as an electroporation process. Electrical impulses create a field of tension, causing tiny moisture channels to be opened in the skin for a fraction of a second. The absorption capacity of the skin increased by the mesoporation activity and the topically applied active ingredients are infused for increased permeation into the skin. We use proprietary formulas for age management and increasing tonification of the skin.
The Biomat is an FDA approved infrared mat that is approved for the treatment of pain, symptoms, stiffness and arthritis. Biomat offers far infrared radiant energy along with negative ions to encourage relaxation of the muscles and increase blood flow via thermotherapy. Thermotherapy may aid in tissue healing by supplying nutrients & encouraging the metabolism of cells. We incorporate the Biomat as part of our programs for overall wellness.
Naturophoria conceptualized this unique and progressive method of skin evaluation: the Signature Skin Wellness Assessment (TM) - utilizing integrative, holistic and scientific aesthetic concepts - combined with a procedural approach in esthetics and naturopathy. We employ our decades of experience in aesthetics, scientific skin care and naturopathy combined with scientific diagnostic equipment to arrive at comprehensive program for skin wellness, esthetic treatment and home care regimes.
We believe that the correct assessment of the skin is a thorough one - We designed this program to quantify and qualify - the importance of an in-depth, non- product driven, sensible mindset towards skin care product and treatment regimes.
We engage in a 30 point factor assessment system along with cutting edge methods and techniques in evaluating the skin prior to any esthetic treatment or before engaging in a new product program.
Many skin conditions that surface in time originate from the deeper skin layers and are difficult to confirm with the human eye. The Observ 500 exposes those conditions by using a patented skin fluorescence and polarized light illumination technology. Using this unique technology we are able to both qualify and quantify anomalies that may present as skin conditions. Combined with Naturophoria's assessment techniques and philosophy - the goal is to provide skin wellness education to our clients regarding the their "state of skin" and how to best care for their skin's individual needs. Presenting a multi pronged approach - careful consideration is also given to targeted treatments, compatible product recommendations, and tailored home care regimes.
