What skincare treatments are best for spring series in May?

We asked our Aestheticians and here are their recommendations!

 

#1  Unwanted capillaries?

Spring and fall season is the perfect time to remove unwanted capillaries, by the use of our telangitron or IPL treatments. Harsh cold and hot temperatures can promote broken capillaries, which causes a ruddy uneven skin tone. Because the spring and fall brings milder temperatures it is ideal to clean up these capillaries and help promote a more even skin tone.

#2 Exfoliate winter skin

Coming out of the dry winter months we recommend exfoliating the skin to brighten and give you a healthy glow.  We offer a combination treatment of dermaplaning to remove peach fuzz and microdermabrasion to clean your pores and removing the dead skin cells face. To take it to the next level we stack it with a chemical to lighten and brighten leaving your skin feeling and looking refreshed.

#3 Bikini and Underarm Wax

Spring waxing is a perfect time to prepare for vacation to remove unwanted hair and also gear up for summer fun in your swimsuit and sleeveless shirts. Fall & winter is the perfect time to get laser hair removal to remove unwanted hair in a more permanent way because the skin is less likely to be tanned. “The lighter the skin … the darker the hair”  … the better results you will get!

#4  MicroNeedling!

MicroNeedling is a perfect treatment to have during any season. In the spring microneedling will stimulate collagen production and allow much needed nutrients like peptides and vitamin C to be absorbed into the skin to bring back the skins natural glow. This treatment can also reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and because it does not involve heat there is no risk of hyperpigmentation in fact it helps reduce hyperpigmentation.

Don’t forget about sunscreen every day!   and a moisturizing skin care regimen for the spring and summer months. We will help you develop the right skincare routine to prevent sun damage, premature wrinkles, pigmentation, oily skin and acne break outs from the spring sun and heat.

Smooth Operators

This is the time of year where your complexion is in need of a little refresher.

Let’s get our scrub on and remove the old dull skin, and in with the
lighter and brighter. Effective exfoliation will leave your skin with a
smoother texture and increase your serums or creams absorption. Let’s go
pro and scrub in on the options available.

There are many different modalities that penetrate the skin further than
topical treatments. They smooth bumps, diminish discoloration, treat fine lines
and target acne. Make sure to do your homework and select a Board Certified
Plastic Surgeon, Dermatologist or an Aesthetician working under the guidance
of a Doctor for your skin needs

Microdermabrasion
This non-invasive procedure that gently exfoliates the skin to diminish signs of
aging. The microderm machine may use tiny crystals or a tip that varies in
coarseness to smooth the skin. Afterwards, your skin may feel slightly
sunburned for a day or two.

Dermaplaning
A qualified expert uses a blade to remove dead layers of skin. This procedure
decreases dull, dry skin by safely removing it and the bonus is a flawless baby
fuzz free face.

Peels
Chemical Peels involve AHA and BHA’s. There are different percentages for
mild to higher corrective strengths. The chemical is applied for several minutes
And then removed. Recovery will vary depending on strengths.
Results afterwards will leave the skin radiant.

Fractional Lasers
This is the most efficient way to change the texture of the skin and
stimulate collagen. The downside is the recovery is longer. This type of
treatment triggers a wound response, causing the skin to trigger the cells
to repair and produce new cells. Your skin will swell and be red for a few
days with peeling as well. Expect a week or two of recovery. Results
that are expected are a noticeable reduction in the components of sun
damaged skin, fine lines, wrinkles, and scarring.
Producing an even skin tone, tighter skin, and a thicker collagen layer as well.

Microdermabrasion – don’t try it at home!

Microdermabrasion is one of the easiest and most effective anti-aging treatments you can get and has been around since the ‘80’s. It has multiple benefits: softens fine lines and wrinkles, helps to smooth coarsely textured skin, decreases the appearance of scarring and pore size and reduces superficial hyper-pigmentation, also known as age spots. Additionally microdermabrasion makes it easier for high quality skin care products to penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin and help build collagen, which is responsible for skins youthful appearance.

True microdermabrasion should be done by a professional not at home for several reasons. First, the home kits are basically a scrub for the face that is often too abrasive and can irritate the skin. Secondly, when receiving microdermabrasion at the spa, instead of using a home kit, the Aesthetician will determine and control the depth of exfoliation by the strength of the vacuum and crystal flow for maximum safety. Thirdly, the Aesthetician will be able to determine the number of passes to make over your skin for optimal results. Often only two passes are made, but sometimes a third pass may be necessary if your skin is thick enough or if there is an area that needs special attention, like a scar or brown spot.

Microdermabrasion has many benefits for both men and women, which is why it has been such a popular and trusted treatment option for more than three decades. Many men seek microdermabrasion because it can dramatically help improve problems with ingrown hairs.
