Five Places You Would Never Expect to Find Sugar!

Obviously you know your sugar is flourishing in a chocolate cake or Mocha Frap Latte
but would you expect it in condiments and soup crackers?
Here is a list of five places you wouldn’t picture having a plethora of sugar:

•    Sauces – tomato, pesto, etc.
•    Soups – canned and packaged varieties, including chicken broth
•    Salad Dressings – especially in low-fat varieties
•    Cold Cereal – Very few brands don’t contain sugar (Kashi 7 Whole Grain Nuggets is a good option)
•    Bread Products – sugar is often found in bread, bagels, wraps, and pitas

An App for Acne?

If you have acne, you know that you’d do anything to get rid of it. Scientific research has led to a mobile friendly answer that  start with something as simple as your refrigerator. Northwestern university has created a free iPhone app that uses science to help people with acne make better food choices. It uses data from a systematic analysis of peer-reviewed research studies to show people if there is or is not scientific evidence linking acne to foods such as chocolate, fat, sugar and whey protein.

Electrolysis Hair Removal at Ruth Swissa

What is Electrolysis Hair Removal?

This is an advanced method of removing hair from the body or face. It’s implemented with a probe that targets the the center of hair growth in each follicle with heat or chemical energy. After the probe is inserted into the hair follicle, the hair is removed with tweezers.

How Many Treatments Are Necessary?

Many factors influence hair growth, so more than one treatment should be expected. The total number of sessions needed to remove hair permanently from a particular area will vary from person to person. Most clients return once a week or every other week as needed. But the unwanted hair will be gone forever once the series of treatments is complete. Each treatment lasts between 15 minutes and one hour.

New SkinMedicaⓇ Peel that Doctors are Raving About !

Need a remedy for that summer-struck, worn down skin? Here are some deats about the new SkinMedica peels available now at Ruth Swissa:

1. Illuminize Peel

Peels-300x300

The Illuminize Peel is a medical grade chemical peel which delivers a nice “glow” to the skin immediately. This mild peel exfoliates dead skin cells in a similar manner that microdermabrasion performs but without the abrasiveness of the crystals and without the risk of spreading bacteria across the skin as the microdermabrasion wand has a tendency to do.  The result is a quick glow without any peeling or downtime. This peel is ideal for individuals who want something more invasive than a facial but cannot have the downtime of peeling.

2. Vitalize Peel

The Vitalize Peel is our most popular peel which exfoliates your dead skin resulting in less acne, less acne scarring, less brown spots and less sun damage. Two days after this peel is applied the skin starts to shed from the chin up to the forehead for a duration of about 2-3 days.  If you want to peel during the weekend, we suggest receiving this peel on a Wednesday evening.

3. Rejuvenize Peel

The Rejuvenize Peel is the strongest of the 3 peels and is ideal for those who have already had other peels and are now tolerant to medical grade peels where individuals are now seeing less shedding of dead skin when other chemical peels are performed. This peel may result is some mild redness and an increase of skin peeling two days after this peel is applied.  The duration usually lasts about 3-4 days.
