  • Dr. Christian says  "New Rx for Wrinkles and Sagging!  The "Pixel" Laser!

    Our Non Invasive Extreme Makeover now has a new addition for reducing wrinkles, acne scarring, sagging and improving texture of the skin.  The Harmony "Pixel" laser is a cutting edge resurfacing laser which creates microcolumns of full thickness injury leaving normal surrounding tissue for rapid healing.  This painless procedure has minimal down time and is a powerful tool to reverse the loss of collagen associated with sun damage and the aging process.    Dr. Christian attended a training seminar concerning the laser in Dallas on 17 Nov 06.  We may be renting this device once a month for treatments and to evaluate it.    The next treatment date is scheduled for Wednesday, 13 Dec 06.  A Demonstration session will be held from 6-7:30PM that day.  Call if you would like to schedule a consultation to learn more or to make a reservation for the demonstration!

    Vitamins, these are vital, New Series Part 4 , The B Vitamins, Vitamin B1




    Vitamine was the term coined by Casimir Funk, a Polish Biochemist, (1884-1967) for the unidentified substances present in food which could prevent the diseases scurvy, beriberi, and pellagra. This is the pioneer work in the study of vitamins in which Funk reviews his research work and postulates his theory of the existence of vitamines, essential factors in the diet.  We continue our series on the Vitamins.  Part 4 The B Vitamins, Vitamin B1

    The Heavy Cost of Fat and the End of Cheap Oil... Inside Outside Research

    A recent study performed by the University of Illinois has confirmed a long held hypothesis of Inside Outside that there was a firm connection between the cost of gas and our state of obesity in the United States. "The bottom line is that our hunger for food and our hunger for oil are not independent. There is a relationship between the two" say researchers.

     Diamond Microdermabrasion, No More Annoying Crystals.

    Inside Outside is now offering Diamond Microdermabrasion as an alternative to the Aluminum Oxide Crystal Microdermabrasion many of you are accustomed to.  The Diamond Microdermabrasion is a cleaner technique and produces a very smooth Polished skin surface which is cleaned of dead skin and debris.  We will follow each Diamond Microdermabrasion with the "Javani Procedure" discussed in the next section.  For those of you who have tried the Diamond Microdermabrasion, you know how good your skin feels and without the "Wind burned" and "Stinging" feeling associated with the Crystal Method.

     The Javani Procedure,  Let's get wet!!


    The key to healthy skin and for that matter the rest of our body is adequate hydration.  Our skin is 70% water and drinking enough water helps our skin, but the sun and the aging process degrade the collagen in our skin as we age.  Collagen and another molecule, hyaluronic acid, are the sponges that hold water in our skin.  We now have a technique to markedly increase the hydration in your skin with the use of the Javani Collagen Gel and using the SmartSound electrical stimulation to open the pores and Ultrasound to force the collagen into the epidermis which pulls moisture into the dermis.  The result is softer and fuller skin which is healthier and more radiant.  We will be using the "Javani Procedure" in association with all of our other procedures which tend to dehydrate the skin such as  Microdermabrasion, Intense Pulsed Light and Glycolic Peels.
