The Best New Topical Body Product you need now… and there’s clinical data to prove why

The genius, new body product you need to firm & restore saggy, bulgy and crepe-like skin – and there’s data to prove it.

Oh hello beautiful, thanks for popping by! In case we’ve just met: so glad you’re here. This is not a sponsored post, nor is any post I’ve ever written to date. If I’m ever provided trade sizes or samples, it’s just because of my full-time profession. Ok, glad we cleared that up. Thanksies!


I’m so excited because I’ve been sneak-previewing the newest innovation by Revision Skincare: BodiFirm – the first medical-grade body product specifically formulated to firm and tighten trouble areas on the body.

If you have areas that look like you’ve been caught in a hail storm, starting to notice thinning skin on your arms, would love if your tummy skin looked tighter, or if you’re as weirded out as I am about the unhappy-looking skin just above the knees, read on!


Total transparency moment: I have a lot of the above concerns myself.

Me, pulling out ALL. THE. STOPS.

Have you also been pulling out all the stops? Here’s what I have tried/have done/am doing (A for Effort, you guys):

  • Micro-needling

*maaaybe helped, but if it does, very slowly and pretty minimally for fine skin texture

  • Coolsculpting* for fat reduction

*Yes, YES coolsculpting works…for fat reduction. But not for skin-firming/tightening/skin texture/look of cellulite.

  • Slathering the backs of my legs in retinol or Retin A, for years

*nothing noticeable, but probably good for preventing crepe-like changes over the long-run.

  • Drowning my ‘trouble areas’ in Nectifirm and Nectifirm Advanced

*there have been compelling studies and associated study before/after photos circulating for years, and the science is there for improving the look of the fat just under the skin that can look bulgy. But this is not a super economical use of these products ($$$).

    Plan: to begin Halo Body resurfacing treatments on my trouble areas, now that summer is over. Stay tuned…Skin care Product Review and Results from Revision Skin Care BodiFirm at TheProductPro.wordpress.com by Elizabeth Weiler MBA, LE, CAC, CLT

So, if you’re like me and you too are fighting the good fight, you also want to prevent the “caught in a hail storm look”, arm skin that could double as a hang-glider, and/or knees that look like they’re grimacing, judging for all the mistreatment over the years. And, of today, get excited because Revision Skincare has been busy brewing up a more economic, highly-targeted product to use daily, specifically for Body – Or, uh, “Bodi”.

Ooooooooh yes, beauties…. My personal product-science-hero and total genius Tatiana, (one of the few product formulators in the whole country) who is the principal formulator at Revision has created a silky, easy and enjoyable to use treatment product for crepe-like, bulgy, and or saggy body skin.

What will it do for you?

According to Revision, BodiFirm has

  • Caffeine – to smooth
  • The same Melaplex technology used in their most recent brightening Vitamin C+ product, to brighten and even out pigment/darkness in sun-damaged areas
  • Bamboo Stem and Patented i-firm technology, (clearly, why ‘Bodi’ vs ‘Body’) which:
  • Diminishes the appearance of fat for contouring*
  • Firms, lifts, and tightens crepey, sagging skin
  • Restores density and elasticity
  • Restores hydration
  • Supports the skin’s microbiome
*There is limited for mail information available at this point, so I’m not sure about the mechanism of action for the fat appearance reduction… but I’ll be sure to circle back on that when I know more.BodiFirm before and after photo at TheProductPro by Elizabeth Weiler MBA, LE, CAC
That is one transformed elbow! But check out the back of the arm… buh-bye, future batwings!

How to use:

On trouble areas only, either:

  • 1 pump (I’m assuming, 1 pump per ‘trouble area’), once per day
  • 1 pump per trouble zone, twice a day

When will you see results?

I was surprised by their clinical data. Results are fast, especially for a topical.

  • 4 weeks, using it 2x per day
  • 8 weeks, using it 1x per day.

It will be launching in 2 sizes. I understand the 3.8 oz will last 3 months using it 1 time per day.Results from Revision Skin Care BodiFirm at TheProductPro.wordpress.com by Elizabeth Weiler MBA, LE, CAC, CLT


How I’m using it

I’m currently using my pre-launch, super top secret BodiFirm on:

  • The area just above the knees
  • The backs of my arms
  • The backs and sides of my upper thighs
  • Inner thighs
  • Stomach
  • As an adjunct to get better results from procedures, and protect my investment after.

I’ll likely be investing in the larger 8 oz size, as I plan to embark on a mission to Halo laser my trouble areas this fall, and know it will be a perfect adjunct to get more ‘bang for my treatment buck’ and protect my Halo Body investment.


When can you get your beautiful hands on it??

As an Elite Revision account, my office will be among the first physician offices nationwide to launch the new BodiFirm on 9/12/19! If you’re reading this now, it’s available! WAAAH!!

#spoiled @neology (investing in the future)

Hello my gorgeous friend, it’s been way too long.

I’ve been studying hard and almost done with my MBA program at Depaul University in Chicago. Needless to say, I’ve been tied up with case studies, homework-laden weekends and exams… but I’m graduating soon and will walk in the ceremony in June. Whew!

As difficult as it’s been, staying focused on the future by investing in education has always served me. Whether it’s professional development, science and technology, or business school, I’ve always been a big believer that to be the best we can be, we *always* need to keep learning!

To jump back in and reconnect with my blog, I thought I would share a few photos from and advanced training with Neocutis Skincare in Chicago this week:

A Fun Find Tech Toy or Just Way Too Much Connectivity? A Connected Mirror Analyzes Your Skin Condition

Ladies, start your charge cards – just when you thought you had smart-everything: from your phone, tv, thermostat, home speakers, smoke detectors, fridge, well, everything… now there’s a smart makeup mirror.

Read the full article below from USA Today, but here’s how I see it – in a nutshell:

Pro’s:

  • This smart mirror features settings that allow you to simulate the lighting scenarios you’ll be in (office, evening, daytime, etc) for specific make up application needs. Love that!
  • Skin analysis (fine lines, discoloration etc) keeps you aware so you can treat your skin proactively – and stat on top of your game.
  • From my perspective, it seems like the storage of old photos and developments might help you recognize if a questionable spot is new or changing. Who knows, if you see something that wasn’t there before (for example), it might trigger you to call your dermatologist for expert analysis.

Cons:

  • Is this good for the psyche? Plain old magnifying mirrors are notorious for causing the most beautiful women to freak out and run into their doctors’ offices for Botox, laser, you-name-it, to treat tiny ‘imperfections’ they see on the mag-setting at home. While Botox and laser of course have their benefits, it’s the freak-out state that could be caused by constant reminders and updates on your new age spot could cause insecurity like, on a daily basis. This would be a definite CON.
  • Omg, why do we need YouTube DIY’s playing in our mirror?? Granted, there are a lot of jems and pearls of knowledge out there on good old YouTube. But it’s also very diluted and there is a whole lot of junk. The last thing I would want is for this to be playing at me in my bathroom while I’m getting ready. I can’t imagine my smart, well informed patients and clients doing the same, either.

Read all about it here:

From USA Today: A CES Innovation Award winner and available to test-drive at SXSW, HiMirror is the world’s first “smart mirror” that provides personalized beauty and health feedback by analyzing your face. Simply wave your hand in front of the mirror or use voice control, and thanks to the camera and cloud-based image processing algorithm, you’ll receive real-time skincare analysis – including comments on wrinkles and fine lines, complexion, dark circles, spots and pores.Based on your skin condition, HiMirror displays custom DIY YouTube tutorials on the mirror itself. Advice is also based on how your skin looks over time, with stored photos of you in its internal memory.

Along with the basic HiMirror model ($189), HiMirror Plus ($259) also adds LED makeup lighting that can simulate varying environmental settings – such as sunny outdoors, brightly-lit office, restaurant, and supermarket, to name a few – to help you properly apply makeup for the occasion. The Plus model also adds more local storage (for more photos or more users) and a faster Wi-Fi connection.

Is it a perfect new edition to the slew of tech products already on your home wifi network, or just way too much media? I’ll be interested to see what else we can ‘stay connected with’ as more new products make their way to the market.

And until next time, stay fabulous, my friends!

The Rumor Mill: Fun New SkinMedica Products!

Exciting things are on the horizon for all of us Skinmedica TNS and HA5 maniacs out there!

WHAT… an HA5 Lip product?!? Nuh-UH!!

Hot off the press, here’s what I heard recently from our fabulous SkinMedica informant:

TNS packaging

  • Have you ever wondered how much product is still in your Essential Serum bottle? You’re not alone. The next generation of packaging will be including a window so you can check your levels and never be caught without your fave product. Yahoo!

 

  • Also rumored is both a bigger (woah 👀❤👀) AND a smaller, travel-sized version. Which is great, because I’d rather cancel the trip than have a TSA agent threaten to throw my Essential Serum away. Seriously.

 

TNS targeted for the NECK!

  • As I am newly obsessed with all-things-neck, I was THRILLED to hear about an upcoming TNS product specifically targeted for the neck. CANNOT. WAIT.

 

HA5: Packing hydration into your pout

  • We already LOVE HA5 for its instant smoothing and long lasting hydration for the face… and word has it, there’s going to be an HA5 lip product launching soon! I AM so all over this. All. Over. It. I can tell you I will have multiples of these for my vanity, make up bag, and gym bag. 5 forms of hyaluronic acid (the same stuff fillers *and dreams* are made of) to pull moisture into the lips?! We love you, you SkinMedica R&D geniuses, you! 💗💗💗Woo hoo!

I’ll be sure to post when I have these new babies in-hand! And until next time, stay fabulous, my friends!
