Nowadays, there are so many things you can do to help your skin be the healthiest version of itself. In this article, I will discuss some of the procedures that can be performed in a medical spa. It is important to inform yourself about these procedures and to discuss them with a specialist.
A common procedure called dermaplaning is easy to use. This procedure helps to regenerate the upper layers of your skin by stimulating it. It removes dead skin, debris, and old make-up that has accumulated. It also helps to remove fine hair, dead skin from the face, and other body parts. When you touch your skin after a dermaplaning procedure, your skin feels smooth.
Many people get a dermaplaning procedure by itself, but it can also be combined with other procedures such as hydrafacial microdermabrasion, micro-needling, chemical peels, and more. It is recommended to get done before some of the more serious procedures, such as light-based laser treatments and radiofrequency procedures. This is because it leaves the skin a little bit more receptive to those light and energy sources getting into the deeper layers of the skin.
Microdermabrasion is another amazing technology that helps to manually exfoliate dead skin. It uses little diamond crystals on the tips of the tool along with suction. This helps remove the dead skin and it also stimulates blood flow in the skin with the use of suction. This is actually really important because as our skin ages another problem that occurs is the loss and diminishing of the little vessels in the skin. This leads to poor skin health making it so the skin is not able to support all the functions that it needs to. Restoring vascular health is a really important component of keeping the skin healthy. You will notice when you get microdermabrasion done that the skin has a nice, beautiful glow, along with feeling very smooth. This even can help with post-inflammatory redness leftover from acne lesions by diminishing them. Microdermabrasion is also good for mild acne, fine lines and other texture issues, pore size, and more.
Photorrejuvenation, also known as Intense Light Therapy, is a skin treatment that uses photodynamic laser therapy (intense light pulses) to treat many skin conditions and eliminate the effects of photoaging. Photoaging conditions may include wrinkles, scarring, and age spots. Photorrejuvenation treats and motivates the facial skin to heal itself by generating new cells. Darker spots of pigment also known as age spots or sunspots, the treatment breaks down the excess melanin. Within days the spots will start to fade away. Wrinkles and lines are caused when the skin starts to lose its fullness and becomes looser. Photorrejuvenation stimulates the skin which creates collagen. This increase in collagen reduces wrinkles. In all but the most extreme cases this laser therapy will remove the effects of photoaging. One appealing advantage of this treatment is that you can return to your normal routine immediately after treatment.
Let’s talk about chemical peels, which are generally fruit acid-based but there are a lot of different varieties. There are glycolic peels, lactic acid peels, salicylic acid peels, and there are also combination peels. Chemical peels help to exfoliate dead skin refreshing and restoring the skin’s surface. There are of course deeper peels as well if that is something you would like to do. A medical spa will help you look and feel better now and these treatments can help keep your skin healthy and restored for long-term results.
Now on to nonsurgical skin tightening. This works by using focused energy to heat deeper layers of the skin, which triggers elastin and collagen generation. This can gradually improve skin tone and texture. There are many FDA-approved skin tightening technologies available right now. Each treatment has its own unique way to obtain the desired results.
Don’t forget about micro-needling. With this procedure, the skin is pricked with tiny, sterilized needles which cause your body to create more elastin and collagen. This heals your skin, potentially helping you to look younger.
Any of these procedures will have your skin feeling so smooth along with having a beautiful glow. You will find that even your makeup will go on better. Smoother, glowing skin is what these procedures are about. Take advantage of these technologies. Utilize these procedures and cater them to your specific needs. Remember all of these procedures can be used on their own or in collaboration with each other. That is the beauty of it, your treatment is customizable.
