Refresh – Instantly
A Rezenerate Facial™ immediately helps to improve tone, texture and balance, and restores a healthy, refreshed glow to your skin. The epidermal layer of the skin is rejuvenated and the conditioned skin retains a healthy plumpness, minimizing the look of fine lines and wrinkles by the end of even your initial treatment. You walk out feeling and looking amazing with the full benefits of the Rezenerate Facials™ having just begun.
Restore – In the next days to come…
The groundbreaking nanotechnology used in the Rezenerate Wand™ allows for maximum absorption of targeted serums. Whether you’re combating aging, blemishes, sunspots or other skin issues–direct delivery of these serums right to the edge of the dermal layer will restore the ideal micro-environment your skin needs for optimal function and regeneration. In a matter of days a brand new, smoother, more radiant and even toned layer of skin will start to appear.
Renew – Over the course of two weeks…
The delivery of targeted serums to the top of the dermal layer in conjunction with the Rezenerate Facials™, awakens the skin’s collagen-producing cells, which become sluggish and stagnant as we age. Over the course of just two weeks skin firmness and elasticity is increased. Combined with the other brilliant results achieved by The Rezenerate Facial™, skin is left with an invigorated, youthful appearance. Long term improvements can continue to be seen for weeks even after a single facial.
LED was discovered by NASA, and it’s been proven to accelerate cellular metabolism by activating cytochromes, the part of our cells that respond to light and color, increasing their energy levels to stimulate tissue growth and regeneration. DNA synthesis quadruples in collagen-stimulating fibroblasts--the foundation of smooth, healthy skin. The Celluma specifically applies a combination of LED light energy with a unique photo-modulation technology that has been proven to increase the skin’s ability to absorb the energy from the light.
The Celluma, is a low-level-light energy device based on NASA technology and FDA Cleared to treat many musculoskeletal and skin conditions.
Medical Esthetics by Katie is the first Clinic in New Westminster to offer Celluma LED Therapy. Light energy is emitted from a flexible and shape-taking light array panel, absorbed at the surface of the skin to re-establish normal cellular health and function. Celluma's patented delivery system emits three specific wavelengths of modulated light controlled by proprietary software algorithms.
The benefits of using three different wavelengths is that light absorbing molecules use the various wavelengths as a signaling mechanism for different cellular processes. For example the various wavelengths and the red, blue and infrared lights reduce inflammation, stimulate collagen production, and some kill bacteria, while others enhance localized circulation.
Patented, pulsed-wave technology controlled by proprietary software algorithms add to the applicability of the Celluma. It is a polychromatic device that delivers blue (465nm), red (640) and infrared (880) light energy simultaneously to safely treat a wide variety of conditions easily and affordably.
Its unique flexible design and large light panel, facilitates effective energy absorption by tissue and molds closely to the body to treat a wide variety of ailments and skin conditions. Its flexibility affords previously considered "awkward" areas such as elbows, shoulders or ankles to be treated with ease. There are no known adverse effects to either practitioner or client/ patient. Compared to low-level light therapy delivered by certain lasers, there is no harmful thermal effect to tissue and no danger to the eye. This makes the Celluma a viable, safe, and affordable alternative to cold lasers which have similar indications for use.
As a Class II Medical device the Celluma can be used to alternatively or adjunctively treat patients/clients and optimize outcomes. Based on scientific research pioneered by NASA, the Celluma is a specialized light energy device FDA Cleared to treat: Inflammatory Acne, Muscle and Joint Pain, Arthritis, Muscle and Tissue Tension, Muscle Spasm.
CELLUMA LED THERAPY
Cleared by the FDA for pain management & skin care, Celluma uses light energy to improve cellular health by accelerating the repair and replenishment of compromised tissue cells.
Using wavelengths that are scientifically proven to stimulate fibroblasts to increase collagen and elastin, Celluma’s low-level light therapy is a safe, effective and convenient way to achieve a healthy, youthful glow in a natural, non-toxic, non-invasive manner.
In addition to anti-aging results, acne doesn’t stand a chance either. When P. acne bacteria builds up in pores, skin becomes inflamed, causing acne lesions and blemishes. Celluma light therapy works safely and effectively, without abrasive chemicals, harmful UV-rays or side effects, to destroy this acne-causing bacteria — not only clearing up existing blemishes, but preventing future breakouts before they happen.

Certified oncology skin therapy is an advanced field of study that focuses on not only the modification of skincare modalities and product but the pathophysiology of cancer.
Cancer treatments can lead to numerous skin-related side effects including dryness, chapped skin, rashes and loss of elasticity. As an esthetician certified in oncology skincare, I can help relieve the discomfort of treatment side effects and skin reactions, improve your sensitized skin condition and restore a sense of well-being.
Spa services have been shown to increase production of endorphins, which in turn reduce stress levels and aid in pain management. Products used are soothing, hydrating, natural and botanical. Treatment is provided with lots of TLC.
FIVE TIPS FOR CARE OF COMPROMISED SKIN
1. To avoid entry of further compromising bacteria and viruses through tiny cracks, keep skin constantly hydrated and protected.
2. Lifetime lifestyle changes may be necessary, including skincare. We can recommend safe, protective, strengthening products to nourish your sensitive skin.
3. Physical, not chemical sun protection is critical to gently protect your skin from further sensitization.
4. Stress shows up on your skin sooner than later. Regular, de stressing human touch therapies go a long way in soothing nausea, working out upper body tension and calming anxiety.
5. Drinking lots of water is common advice, but ensuring all organs are properly hydrated increases the chances of your skin benefitting from the overflow.
