The skin is constantly shedding old cells and replacing them with new ones. A good Skin Care Treatment will remove the dead cells and make your skin look brighter and more radiant.
Increasingly, patients are not looking for a quick fix from their dermatologist but want a long-term regimen that will provide glowing skin for life. Fortunately, there are many options that can do just that.
Botox is perhaps the most well-known and widely used cosmetic anti-aging treatment. But it has many other benefits and is FDA-approved to treat medical conditions including neck spasms, chronic migraine headaches, and excessive sweating.
It works by blocking nerve signals to the muscles in which it is injected. When a muscle cannot contract, it weakens and smoothes the appearance of a wrinkle or line.
Our team is experienced with performing this procedure in a safe and effective manner. We use a combination of methods to numb your skin, including anesthetic creams, ice, and massage.
Once your skin is numb, the injections are performed with a very small needle in the area of the wrinkle or line. The process takes about 30 minutes, so you can have this treatment done on your lunch break or while at work! The results of the treatment will begin to become apparent in a few days and can last for months depending on how often you have it done.
Chemical peels help reduce the appearance of blemishes and improve skin texture. They can also make large pores appear smaller. This treatment is ideal for patients who want to address a range of skincare concerns, but don’t want to undergo more invasive treatments like lasers.
A chemical peel involves applying a solution to the surface of your face. It can cause a reaction similar to sunburn, and your skin may feel tingly. This will subside in a few days. You can use ice packs and over-the-counter pain relievers to help manage any discomfort.
It’s important to avoid exposing your skin to sunlight before and after your peel. This will help minimize your risk of developing a bacterial or viral infection that could result in skin color changes such as hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation. In addition, it’s important to avoid waxing or dermabrasion until your skin heals. This will ensure the best results and reduce the chances of a complication.
A facial is a good way to get rid of dirt, oil and other toxins that clog pores and cause blackheads and whiteheads. It also removes dead skin cells and leaves the complexion feeling smooth and refreshed. It also helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, lighten uneven pigmentation and sun spots, tighten pores and boost hydration.
Most professionals recommend getting a facial once or twice a month. This is because the skin renews itself every 28 days and these new skin cells are going to be more healthy than the old ones. Also, facials can accelerate the work of any other skin care products you’re using. If you’re dealing with skin aging, for example, you’ll want to consider rejuvenating facials that promote collagen production and LED treatments (especially red LED light) to support elasticity. And if your main concern is acne, you’ll want to opt for a decongesting acne facial that works to clear pores and minimize breakouts without over-drying the skin.
Skin Care Routine
While skin care may seem fashionable with beauty influencers promoting everything from facial steaming to jade rolling, taking the time for a well-designed regimen has both cosmetic and medical benefits. Proper skin care can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as prevent sun damage.
A simple, well-designed skin care routine will benefit all skin types and concerns. A good routine includes cleansing, moisturizing and sunscreen. It also includes specialized acne treatments, serums and retinols as needed.
Start with a gentle cleanser in the morning and at night to remove oil, dirt, makeup and dead skin cells. Avoid over-washing to avoid drying the skin.
Follow with a serum that supports your specific needs and skin type. For example, if you are treating hyperpigmentation, try a serum with lightening ingredients like vitamin C and soy or licorice extract. Layer your skincare products in order of thinnest to thickest texture to ensure that they work their best.
