Your Looks Are Our Concern...

Facial If you are at all concerned about keeping your skin looking youthful and vibrant, you know that constant sun exposure will severely damage your skin if you are not taking the proper precautions. Along with that threat, you have the chemicals in skin care products as well as other environmental factors that, over time, have a negative effect on your skin. When you add age into the equation, it is quite apparent why aesthetician delivered skin treatments like microdermabrasion, facials and chemical peels are becoming more and more popular.

Medical Microdermabrasion:

If you are not familiar with microdermabrasion, it is a non-invasive procedure that is meant to remove the dead skin cells that are on the top layer of skin by applying a fine crystal like substance directly onto your skin. The crystals act as a super exfoliation treatment that removes the dead cells to reveal the underlying skin that is made up of healthier skin cells.

Now this is not a miracle cure for wrinkles, but it is very effective in creating healthier looking skin and, in a minor way, will also help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and facial lines.

One of the other major benefits of getting mircrodermabrasion is that it is a quick procedure. Your skin will definitely have a reddened appearance after the treatment is complete, but that will go away rather quickly. You could actually schedule the treatment on your lunch hour and still have time to grab a sandwich. Some of the other treatments will require a recovery period of days, if not weeks before the appearance of your skin returns to normal.

A safe, effective anti-aging and corrective treatment of fine lines, aging, acne scars, pore size, and sun damage. This treatment is firming, exfoliating and hydrating. You will experience visible results after one treatment. Microdermabrasion is probably the most cost effective of all skin rejuvenation procedures.

Facials and Corrective Peels

A facial involves a variety of skin treatments, including: steam, exfoliation, extraction, creams, lotions, facial masks, peels, and massage to give your skin a healthier looking glow. There are a variety of types of facials, different types of products used, and there can be some variation in length. The typical extensive facial generally lasts about an hour or even longer, and other treatments called “mini-facials” may only take about 15-30 minutes.

The goals of facials are the same regardless of treatment, and you can expect the following things to occur when you have one:

Your skin will be evaluated for the best treatments to best tone and moisturizer that type.
The skin will be thoroughly cleansed and dead skin cells will be exfoliated.
• You may have extraction of blackheads.
You will likely have a skin mask treatment.
You may have some degree of facial massage.
