Randy Haugen of IBOAI Speaks About Alternatives to Cosmetic Procedures


At-Home Skin Care Treatments from ARTISTRY Derma Options are Gentler, Non-Invasive when Compared to Costly Dermatological & Plastic Surgery Procedures.

“88 percent prefer milder, more affordable treatments,” – Randy Haugen

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., Mar. 3, 2006 – “Research shows that in 2004, nearly $12 billion was spent on cosmetic procedures in the U.S.,” says Randy Haugen of Independent Business Owners Association International (IBOAI,, the official trade association for Quixtar IBOs.

“According to the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, men are purchasing cosmetic procedures in record numbers,” says Valerie Haugen. The number of forehead lifts, injection treatments and laser resurfacing treatments more than doubled for men from 2003 to 2004. Many of these procedures were intended to correct the lines caused by the 15,000 facial expressions people make every day, including smiling, laughing, and frowning.

“In reality, four of the five most popular treatments are done using invasive technologies such as needles, knives and harsh chemicals that are quite expensive,” says Randy Haugen. “Thankfully, those who are interested in healthier, younger looking skin do have alternatives.”

Those alternatives come in the form of the ARTISTRY® Derma Options line of products. Unlike medical procedures, ARTISTRY Derma Options are cosmetic treatments designed for the 88 percent of American women who prefer milder, more affordable at-home alternatives clinically proven to work over time.

The ARTISTRY Derma Options product line includes but is not limited to:

ARTISTRY TIME DEFIANCE® Derma Erase – the at-home alternative to line-relaxing injections. Free of botulism toxin, Derma Erase contains a patented peptide and other dermal-smoothing extracts.

“Derma Erase provides long-term relaxation in the appearance of expression lines,” states Haugen.

ARTISTRY TIME DEFIANCE Intensive Repair Serum – the at-home alternative to chemical peels. In just 14 nights, Intensive Repair Serum is clinically proven to imprive skin clarity and smoothness and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

ARTISTRY TIME DEFIANCE Vitamin C + Wild Yam Treatment – the at-home alternative to injectable fillers. “This product has been clinically proven to reduce the appearance of wrinkles by 58 percent in 16 weeks,” says Valerie Haugen.

“This product uses pharmaceutical-grade L-ascorbic Vitamin C that offers long-lasting natural wrinkle-fighting power,” adds Randy Haugen.
