NEW At the MedSpa of Rhode Island: Biopelle® Tensage®

We would like to take a moment to introduce to you our new Growth Factor!!

Biopelle Tensage

It’s a fact. Your skin thins with age and sun damage. This makes it more prone to fine lines and wrinkles. Also, when you undergo certain dermatologic procedures such as chemical peels, laser therapy or microdermabrasion, your skin undergoes more damage as part of the process.

Hundreds of millions of years ago, during a period when our planet was bombarded by extreme radiation, a little snail evolved a method to protect itself, a secretion of growth factors and glycoproteins that covered its skin. This special fluid was absorbed and healed the damage from the sun’s rays, almost instantaneously!

After years of research, European scientists have discovered a unique way to harness this growth factor to help damaged human skin: Tensage® SCA Technology (which stands for Secretion of Cryptomphalus Aspersa, a type of snail).

Tensage SCA Technology is available in a variety of strengths. Each of the Tensage® products has a Biorepair Index Number, which indicates the strength and percentage of SCA in the product. Your skin care specialist will help you determine which products are appropriate for the level of repair and rejuvenation you desire.

Benefits of Tensage:

  • firmer looking skin with renewed rejuvenation
  • smoothes the appearance of fine lines
  • softens the appearance of coarse wrinkles
  • helps skin damaged by photoaging
  • faster recovery of skin appearance following dermal procedures
  • increased hydration for softer skin

I get numerous phone calls a day asking what services our aesthetician offers and I list off all the different services she provides. After going through the list of services I always explain how the Hydrafacial is our most popular facial. The prospective client on the other end of the phone asks the same question every client asks… “What is so special about the Hydrafacial; why is it your most popular facial?”

The Hydrafacial is our most popular facial because you see and feel an instant difference! Yes, INSTANT. “How?” you ask? It is because the Hydrafacial combines 3 treatments into 1! It is a microdermabrasion, facial, and chemical peel all in one! Anne will do mild extractions as needed and finish the Hydrafacial with a combination of antioxidants, peptides, and a hyaluronic acid (all things needed for great, healthy skin!).

You can get this fabulous treatment once a week if you really wanted to but most of our clients come once every 4-6 weeks for healthy skin maintenance.

I am often asked by patients why Vitamin C facials are a great summer facial option.  What are they and what do they do?

Vitamin C facials are hydrating and nourishing for dry, sun damaged skin.  They also lighten and brighten your skin and because Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant it helps protect your skin from sun damage.

They differ from other types of facials in that they don’t make you sensitive to sun, which can cause itching or redness.  The Med Spa of Rhode Island has medical grade products for administering these highly effective treatments. Our aesthetician is also highly experienced in providing these kind of treatments and has the ability to customize each treatment for your individual needs.


Now that summer has arrived we all want to get our bodies back in shape.  Remember though, your skin needs as much care as the rest of your body!

Call now to schedule your complimentary consultation with Anne our medical aesthetician!

Have a great summer and wear your sunscreen!
