Ah, what a summer it has been! For many people, this summer involved some semblance of normalcy while remaining mindful about too much socializing. Whether you enjoyed days at a local pool or recreational area, set off across the country, or had the best staycation ever in your own backyard, your time in the sun affected your skin. Here, we discuss some of the most effective ways to counter the damaging effects of sun exposure so your skin stays smooth, radiant, and healthy.
Chemical peels provide so much value to the skin. They can be combined with other procedures to maximize their results or as a stand-alone to assist with cellular turnover. During a chemical peel, we cleanse the skin and apply a customized solution. This may cause a mild stinging sensation that goes away quickly. Peels can also cause temporary reddening, swelling, crusting, or flaking in the days that follow treatment. The intensity and longevity of these side effects is dependent on the strength of the peel.
Our signature chemical peel treatments work to reverse the signs of sun damage first by dislodging the dull, dead cells from the epidermis. This reveals brighter, smoother skin and can reduce blemishes. Second, chemical peels support collagen production, which helps maintain skin firmness over time.
Skin Wave is a wellness device that cleanses, exfoliates, and hydrates to bring out its natural beauty. The multidimensional treatment is performed using an innovative aqua delivery system, hydrogen therapy, electroporation, and dedicated Skin Wave solutions. Hydrogen therapy targets active oxygen in skin that is dehydrated and aging. By reducing the active oxygen in the skin, the Skin Wave treatment combats cellular damage, and restores hydration and vitality.
Cryofacials are extraordinarily thorough and relaxing. Each treatment massages the neck and scalp using nitrogen before the technician performs a rejuvenating facial that firms the skin from the chest to the scalp. During a Cryofacial, capillaries constrict in response to the cold temperature. After the procedure, the vasoconstriction is followed by vasodilation that flushes wastes and toxins from the skin. Cryotherapy also has anti-inflammatory properties, which are great for people with eczema, dermatitis, and psoriasis. The sophisticated use of nitrogen in the Cryofacial can stimulate collagen production, reduce pore size, lighten dark spots, and improve blood flow to the skin.
