Answer by Kennidy
obviously wash those areas in the shower.. but eating a more healthy natural diet is also known to improve skin health
What do you think? Answer below!
AcneErasingSecrets.com There are so many things you can do in order to treat and begin to clear up body acne. The first thing that I recommend you do is to drink more water. Drink more spring or purified water each day and reduce or completely eliminate soda’s and any other drinks that have sugar. Then increase how many organic raw fruits and vegetables you eat on a daily basis… This will give your body the nutrition and health it needs internally to clear up body acne, bacne and all of it. Externally I recommend you get a skin brush and brush your skin to move your lymphatic system, this is lymphatic drainage which cleanses internal toxins which would otherwise break out of your skin and cause body acne. I also recommend that you get apple cider vinegar and spray that on your skin, your back, your face or wherever your acne and pimples are. These are just a few ideas! watch my other videos to learn more! You can get the skin brush for just 6 bucks here www.amazon.com You can get learn more about using apple cider vinegar as an acne treatment in this video: www.youtube.com the link to pick it up is in the description of that video as well.

Beverly Hills, Calif. (PRWEB) September 25, 2006
Many of todays herbal remedies are far from household names: Arctic Root, Bladder Wrack, and Cats Claw. However, there is one herb with health and beauty benefits that is as close to you as your pantry: Turmeric. Derived by grinding the yellow, ginger-like roots from a small plant, native to India, into a powder or paste, Turmeric has a history of healing that dates back 5,000 7,000 years ago to the Vedic Texts that outline the practice of Ayurveda (the science of longevity). Here is a quick lesson on the healing, balancing and beautifying properties of this time-honored spice.
Sacred Turmeric and the Asian Culture
The Turmeric plant is sacred to the Himalayan Monks and plays an important role in their herbal rituals. In many Asian cultures, brides and grooms are anointed with Turmeric on their wedding day in order to balance their mind, body and spirit and prepare them for their new roles as husband and wife. In addition, mixing Turmeric with lime creates the distinctive red forehead mark of spiritual followers the kumkuma. Turmeric is also added to the water used daily in the ritual ablution of the Deities and mixed with unpolished rice as an important offering during puja (prayer).
Turmeric and the Fight against Cancer and Other Diseases
Ayurvedic doctors have long used Turmeric as a medicine for treating diabetes, wounds/bruises, skin rashes, arthritis, bronchitis and liver problems. Today, Western medicine is discovering that this powerful spice also can help the body battle cancer. Recently, researchers at Detroits Henry Ford Health System found that the active ingredient in Turmeric, curcumin, can boost the cancer-fighting power of treatment with a naturally occurring molecule called TRAIL, which helps combat cancer cells. Other studies have found Turmeric to be as effective as hydrocortisone in treating cases of arthritis and acute inflammation without side effects. Turmeric also has important antibacterial properties and is effective in killing Salmonella and E. Coli bacteria.
Turmeric and Beauty
Asian women rely on Turmeric to help them achieve younger-looking, smoother, more brighter and radiant skin. This ancient beauty secret is often applied to the body in paste form before a bath to cleanse and revitalize the skin, achieving tighter pores and refined skin texture. Turmeric also is widely recognized to have antioxidant qualities, which fight free radicals and thereby help slow the aging process. For such skin problems as rashes or acne, sandalwood extract is often added to the formula to enhance its antibacterial action.
Turmeric and You
Before you run for the spice rack to douse yourself with a layer of this beneficial spice, take a deep, cleansing breath and relax. BODY BISTRO the worlds most authentic, comprehensive line of Ayurvedically based skin and body care products can bring the benefits of Turmeric to your beauty regimen with skin and body care products formulated with the most effective, pure extracts of Turmeric available.
No matter what your skin type, you can design a regimen to harness the healing powers of Turmeric with Body Bistro products:

Prescott, Arizona (Vocus/PRWEB) February 08, 2011
Robin Fleck, M.D., founder and medical director of Body Oasis Laser Cosmetic Solutions in Prescott, Arizona, is pleased to announce that Maureen Brogan has recently received her Arizona state certification as a laser technician after training at the National Laser Institute in Scottsdale, Arizona. Maureen, serves as the spa coordinator at Body Oasis medispa and is also a certified medical assistant and certified nail technician. She has been a valued member of Dr. Flecks team since 2007.
Now having furthered her knowledge and strengthened her skills in the laser cosmetic field, Maureen returns to Body Oasis with a renewed impetus to better our clients overall health and appearance of their skin. She notes, Newer and better lasers are being designed each year and with my training I am poised to be able to explain the risks and benefits to my clients and make beauty recommendations they may not have even dreamed were possible.
It was just the perfect fit for Maureen to continue her education and get her certification, states Dr. Fleck. I have watched Maureens progress over the past few years and it is exciting to see her use all of her talents in every aspect of this business.
Maureen joins Lisa Ramirez, certified laser technician, who has been caring for clients at Body Oasis for two years. Continuing education in the laser industry is essential to ensure that our clients are receiving the best and most up-to-date treatments available on the market today, observes Lisa. The laser aesthetic industry is taking over many aspects of cosmetic surgery, and treatments formerly done by plastic surgeons and antiaging treatments are now less expensive and recovery is faster with excellent results.
With laser hair removal being the most popular aesthetic treatment in the United States, Body Oasis medical spa is well-equipped with two brand new hair removal lasers for removing hair on all skin types including darker complexions and even tanned skin. Both lasers are painless and fast, providing comfort and convenience at a fraction of the cost of conventional lasers.
We are the only medi-spa with the Active FX fractional CO2 resurfacing laser between Phoenix and Las Vegas, notes Dr. Fleck, who has performed over two hundred Fraxel skin resurfacing procedures of the face, neck, chest and hands since 2008. This is the laser of choice for patients with skin laxity, wrinkles, and age spots. Improvement of acne scarring is impressive with one or more fractional laser treatments, making chemical peels and microdermabrasion unnecessary. It can even tighten lax eyelid skin, obviating the need for eyelid surgery.
Another offering from Body Oasis Laser center is the Nd-YAG laser treatment which safely removes facial veins, spider veins on legs, and tightens lax skin on the neck. One of the hottest trends right now is the use of lasers to heat the underlying layers of skin, and thereby force the body to form new collagen. The result is similar to a facelift, without having the risks of going to a surgery center.
For deeper varicose veins or spider veins, endovenous laser ablation and sclerotherapy are also available at the clinic.
The Smoothbeam laser, also available at Dr. Flecks laser treatment center, improves acne and smokers wrinkles without downtime. A lunchtime procedure once a month can stimulate the skins own collagen and fill in fine wrinkles above the lip or in the crows feet area.
Body Oasis Laser Cosmetic Solutions also boasts the new Palomar tattoo removal laser which can remove large tattoos in minutes and is successful in removing hard-to-clear green pigments. The Palomar treats all types of tattoos from professional and amateur to permanent make-up in addition to unwanted benign pigmentations from sun damage, while minimizing damage to the surrounding skin.
The IPL or the Intense Pulse Light photofacial is also offered at Body Oasis. Patients with fine wrinkles, facial flushing, redness, broken capillaries, rosacea, freckles, and minor sun damage are perfect candidates for rejuvenation with this laser.
One of the most popular procedures being done at Body Oasis today is our signature liquid facelift lunch hour procedure. Women love this fifteen-minute, nonsurgical procedure using either Botox or Dysport, Radiesse, Perlane, or Restylane. This procedure helps to restore volume and fullness to the face to correct eyelid bagginess, sagging jowls and marionette lines, observes Maureen, who assists Dr. Fleck with these rejuvenating makeovers.
Looking younger in todays business climate is essential for career advancement. At Body Oasis, we also offer the Visia computerized skin analysis as a tool for pinpointing your specific aging issues. This technology captures a clear imaging of select facial areas to reveal damage on and beneath the surface of the skin that is not detectable by the naked eye alone. This imaging allows Dr. Fleck to evaluate your skins’ health and appearance based on six different criteria that affect your complexion such as folds or creases in the skin, freckles, enlarged pores, uneven skin tones or blotchy skin, and ultra violet spots caused by overexposure to the sun. With the information gleaned from this analysis we are better able to recommend which specific laser or cosmetic dermal fillers would be ideal to keep you looking youthful.
“In this environment of ever-expanding options, choosing a specialist or cosmetic dermatologist you can trust to help you select a treatment and to perform it properly is of the utmost importance. Each of our patients receives personal attention and individual treatment plans that are developed especially for them. Only then will they achieve optimal results,” notes Lisa Ramirez. “Dr. Fleck has many years of experience as a laser specialist and cosmetic surgeon, so patients count on her for a professional assessment of what will work best for them.”
Cosmetic dermatologist and vein specialist, Robin Fleck, M.D. is a double-board certified dermatologist and internist, recognized by the American Board of Dermatology and the American Board of Internal Medicine. She is the founder and Medical Director of Vein Specialties and Southwest Skin & Cancer Institute in Prescott, Arizona. Dr. Fleck is a fellow of the American Academy of Dermatology, the American Society of Laser Medicine and Surgery and the American Venous Forum.

Body Oasis Laser Aesthetics Announces Acquisition of New Hair Removal Laser and Tattoo Removal Laser
Prescott, AZ (Vocus/PRWEB) March 01, 2011
Robin Fleck, M.D., founder and medical director of Body Oasis Laser Aesthetics and Medi-Spa in Prescott, Arizona, is pleased to announce the arrival of the Lumenis Light Sheer Duet hair removal laser, the newest addition to her ever-expanding esthetic practice. This laser is just one of the many treatments offered at Body Oasis Laser Aesthetics. Dr. Flecks laser center is the only medical spa in Northern Arizona to carry this exciting hair removal technology. If youre looking for treatments ranging from hair removal, tattoo removal, wrinkle reduction or even spider vein removal, Body Oasis Laser Aesthetics has a laser and a solution for you.
The Lumenis High Speed Light Sheer Duet laser for permanent hair reduction is a laser hair removal system with two advantages: extra speed and, most of all, patient comfort. By using a powerful vacuum-assisted technology, treatment can be done within fifteen minutes, unless your name is King Kong!! Even large areas like backs, arms, and legs can be done in short order. With this laser, hair removal is done in a series of six to eight monthly treatments to get sexy, smooth skin.
We are ecstatic to have the Light Sheer Duet. This laser allows you to be treated quickly, with no discomfort. Messy pre-treatment anesthetic cream, is now a thing of the past, states Maureen Brogan, Body Oasis Spa Coordinator. With this new technology we can perform laser hair removal painlessly in half the time.
Laser hair removal has completely revolutionized the problem of unwanted hair. With laser hair removal being the most sought after treatment in the United States today, Body Oasis is poised to corner the market in Prescott, Sedona, Flagstaff, and Anthem, Arizona with this fast painless laser.
Laser hair removal in the bikini line is the most popular procedure we do at Body Oasis, followed by facial hair, backs (specifically for men) and underarms, notes Lisa Ramirez, laser technician at Body Oasis Laser center. The Duet is the first breakthrough in laser hair removal that we have seen in the past decade. This technology is the new Gold Standard for laser hair removal and our clients couldnt be happier.
Dr. Robin Fleck, board-certified dermatologist and director of Body Oasis Laser Aesthetics notes, As technology has improved, lasers have been customized for each treatment modality. The laser can be adjusted depending on an individual’s skin type and hair color, coarseness and other characteristics. This specificity ensures the best laser hair removal outcomes.
In addition to the new hair removal laser, Body Oasis Laser Aesthetics has added the Palomar Q YAG tattoo removal laser. Tattoo removal has become very popular, especially among women. When your tattoo no longer looks the same as it originally did due to aging, pregnancy or weight gain, the Q YAG tattoo removal system gives the fastest, most painless treatment. Men and women who have lived for years with the Regret Tattoo can clean the slate and have a fresh start with the Q YAG laser.
Looking younger is a snap using the Q YAG laser for skin rejuvenation. Uneven pigment and spider veins clear in just one to two sessions to reveal clearer, more attractive skin. The Q YAG does more than just remove unwanted tattoos; the laser has a treatment for pigment and vessel clearance that’s fast, easy, well tolerated and leaves patients with remarkably youthful skin.
Body Oasis offers more than just tattoo and hair removal. This medical spa boasts seven different lasers, all of which are used for treatments ranging from spider veins to freckles and rosacea, broken capillaries, and severe sun damage. The Smoothbeam laser, available at Dr. Flecks laser treatment center, improves acne and acne scarring, fills in fine wrinkles above the lip or in the crows feet area without downtime. A lunchtime procedure once a month can stimulate the skins own collagen and fill in fine wrinkles above the lip or in the crows feet area and improve acne scars.
Another offering from Body Oasis Laser center is the Nd-YAG laser treatment, which safely removes facial veins, spider veins on legs, and tightens lax skin on the neck. One of the hottest trends right now is the use of lasers to heat the underlying layers of skin, and thereby force the body to grow new collagen. The result is similar to a facelift, without having the risks of going to a surgery center. The Nd-YAG laser safely removes hair in darker complexioned individuals without the risk of scarring or whitening of the skin. Patients suffering from ingrown hairs or shaving bumps can get relief with the Nd-YAG hair removal laser.
For spider veins, the Nd-YAG laser is definitely up to the task. Spider veins exist closer to the surface of the skin and are small, red or purple lines appearing as unsightly blemishes. The Nd-YAG laser treatment is a simple cosmetic procedure to eliminate those difficult to conceal, ugly, dark, embarrassing spider veins and blemishes permanently. This new-generation laser system allows such a precise delivery that no surrounding tissue is harmed. Spider veins disappear, leaving your skin flawless as it’s meant to be.
One of the most popular esthetic treatments we do at Body Oasis today is our signature liquid facelift lunch-hour procedure. Women love this fifteen-minute procedure using Botox or Dysport, Radiesse, Perlane, or Restylane. This treatment helps to restore volume and fullness to the face to correct eyelid bagginess, sagging jowls and marionette lines, observes Maureen, who assists Dr. Fleck with these rejuvenating makeovers.
Another top of the line laser available at Body Oasis Laser Aesthetics is the Active FX fractional CO2 resurfacing laser, which continues to be an ideal method for eliminating moderate to deep lines and age spots due to premature aging and photodamage. Skin resurfacing with fractional technology is a tried and true approach to skin rejuvenation, precisely removing layers of skin to correct fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, and repair skin discoloration. The results of laser resurfacing are generally quite dramatic and long-lasting. Risks of permanent pigment loss are a thing of the past with the Active FX fractional laser.
In this environment of ever-expanding cosmetic treatment options, choosing a specialist or cosmetic dermatologist you can trust to help you select a treatment and to perform it properly is of the utmost importance. Each of our patients receives personal attention and individual treatment plans that are developed especially for them,” notes Jessica Peters, Certified Medical Assistant for Southwest Skin and Cancer Institute. “Dr. Fleck has many years of experience as a laser specialist and cosmetic surgeon, so patients count on her for a professional assessment of what will work best for them.”

Body Oasis Laser Aesthetics Announces New Treatment Available for Melasma, Scars, Age Spots and Birth Marks
Prescott, AZ (PRWEB) June 07, 2011
Robin Fleck, MD, board-certified dermatologist, founder and medical director of Body Oasis Aesthetics in Prescott, Arizona is pleased to add new treatments to Body Oasis growing repertoire. Dr. Fleck has recently begun treating several types of skin conditions with excellent results. With expensive, major cosmetic overhauls on the decline in a struggling economy, more affordable, less dramatic solutions such as cosmetic lasers are increasing in popularity. Body Oasis has always been at the forefront of providing the most innovative and advanced skin treatment for its clients in Northern Arizona.
There are many skin and color aberrations that in the past were incurable or only treatable through the use of complicated surgical methods that left a patient incapacitated for a long period of time. Body Oasis is now able to offer better skin treatments, with the use of a laser, that are less invasive and produce faster results.
Melasma is a dark skin discoloration that appears on sun-exposed areas of the face. It is especially common in pregnant women, women who are taking birth control pills and women taking hormone replacement therapy. Melasma is of great cosmetic concern to its sufferers. A blotchy uneven pigmentation is usually seen over the cheeks, forehead, nose, or upper lip. To date, no treatment has been found to cure this condition. Dr. Fleck now treats melasma with the Active FX Fractional CO2 laser. With one easy painless treatment skin will be smooth, vibrant and fresh. Maintenance of the lightened skin is just as simple with treatments of the QYAG laser every six months. Nightly use of the prescription hydroquinone cream ensures even longer lasting results.
Dr. Fleck also recently began treating scars. Scars anywhere on the body can be remodeled without surgery using the Active FX CO2 Laser. The Active FX laser provides uniform clinical effect with minimal damage to surrounding healthy tissue. This laser stimulates formation of new underlying collagen to continue improvement of the scar over time.
Lentigines, also known as age spots, usually clear quickly with treatment by the QYAG laser. QYAG laser is used for removal of brown age spots on the face, chest, hands and arms. QYAG targets aging and sun damaged skin by zeroing in on damaged tissue. This laser targets each individual spot and causes the pigment to turn white and then slowly slough off leaving healthy normal colored skin in its place. Most age spots require only one treatment.
Brown birthmarks such as cafe au lait spots, Becker’s nevus, Nevus of Ota and nevus spilus have also been found by Dr. Fleck to respond to laser therapy. By using short high-powered bursts of energy with fractional laser or QYAG technology, the pigment associated with the birthmarks breaks down and the body can then remove the excess pigment, returning the skin to its normal tone. Some birthmarks may take only 2-3 treatments, while some may take more laser treatments to respond. The laser treatments normally last between fifteen and 30 minutes. Although there may be some discomfort during treatment, there is no down time after the procedures. You will be able to return directly to work.
Because laser surgery does not require any incisions, there are no sutures and no bleeding. Additionally, there is very little pain or swelling involved with the procedure. Laser skin treatments do not require the same amount of healing time as traditional procedures, so you will be able to return to your normal activities much more quickly after your procedure.
“I think more people are choosing laser procedures because the rejuvenation is noticeable and lasting. It doesn’t take long to perform a laser treatment – usually less than an hour and with the latest advances in laser technology, laser treatments are now very safe and effective for rejuvenation and clearing brown and red pigmentation,” explains Maureen Brogan, Body Oasis spa coordinator and laser technician. “For those who may not be ready for invasive surgery or who want to improve their complexion, laser treatments can be a great move.”
“Patients who undergo any type of cosmetic surgeries can require ten days to two weeks to recover,” notes Dr. Robin Fleck, founder and medical director of Body Oasis. “Today, women lead fast-paced lives, and juggle families and careers and often don’t want to put their lives on hold for an aesthetic procedure. Additionally, it can be difficult to be discreet about having work done when procedures require extensive time to heal. Our patients love our laser treatments because it gives them the results they want and the ability to get back to their families, jobs and daily routines quickly.”
By offering advanced treatments such as Q-YAG and Active FX Laser, Body Oasis Spa has once again shown its commitment to provide the latest cosmetic treatments at affordable prices. The medical spa also offers a wide range of specials every month. With excellent online reviews and testimonials, Body Oasis is the top choice when it comes to skin treatments in Northern Arizona.
