With Summer quickly approaching, now is a great time to say, “out with the old, in with the new” - skin, that is! As the seasons shift, many of us are still battling the lackluster complexion Winter gifted us, but reviving your glow is much easier than you think.
Behind every radiant face is a quality skincare routine, and especially a quality facial regimen. Regular facial treatments do wonders for your appearance as they renew your skin cells, add key nutrients back to the surface, promote a smooth texture, and improve elasticity. Not to mention, they offer an especially relaxing and rejuvenating experience that leaves you with an effortlessly luminous and youthful appearance.
There is an abundance of facials on the market that can support you in achieving the glow you desire this summer. As with all self-care practices, picking the treatments that best fit your individual needs is essential. Below are the tried-and-true facials recommended in order to achieve fresh, Summer-ready skin:
OxyGeneo 3-in-1 Super Facial: This facial exfoliates the upper skin layer to remove dead cells, open clogged pores, smooth the surface and renew skin. The treatment generates an abundance of CO2 bubbles that permeate the upper skin layer to trigger a physiological response known as the Bohr Effect (The Bohr Effect happens between the specialized gel and “pod” that are loaded with beneficial ingredients.) This causes your body to rush oxygen to the surface of the skin, increasing microcirculation to really plump and brighten. It is very relaxing, with a vibrating handpiece that also stimulates lymphatic drainage. Anyone can do this, but it isn’t recommended for patients with acne.
Radio Frequency Skin Tightening Facial: This facial is fabulous for anyone who wants to firm, tighten and contour the face. Radiofrequency energy feels amazingly relaxing, like a hot stone massage. At 39 degrees celsius, the collagen fibers in the skin start to melt, creating a perceived wound under the skin. This stimulates the fibroblast to start producing more collagen and elastin, helping to firm skin and thicken the dermis. This treatment continues to work under the skin for 4 to 6 weeks after the initial treatment! A series of treatments is recommended depending on age and laxity.
Hydrodermabrasion: This facial is a fan favorite, especially for people who live in dry climates. Great for most skin types, this one is especially beneficial for people with problem acne. Your skin therapist chooses the appropriate solution to treat your skin, brightening, extra hydrating, and acne treatment. Specialized handpieces and tips are used for exfoliation, extraction, and Ultrasound infusion. Your skin will be left smooth, bright, and very hydrated. Recommended monthly to help maintain youthful skin.
Facials are essential to achieving smooth supple glowing skin. Beautiful results can be seen immediately and get 100x better with each regular treatment. Treat yourself to any of the facials listed above to look and feel your best this Summer season. Your skin will thank you for it!
