Your skin is more than just a surface – it is a reflection of your inner vitality. Our skin, the largest organ in the body, is a barrier between our bodies and the outside world and it can take a beating in doing its job. In this post we will share a little about skin treatments and how they can be a real treat for your skin!

If you are new to skin treatments, welcome! It is a very exciting journey to embark on. It can also be a little overwhelming. Our skin specialists always discuss your skin concerns and look at your skin before recommending skin treatments, so you know you are in good hands, and will be receiving a treatment that is suited to your skin type, your budget and your skin goals!

 

Let us break down a couple of popular treatments:

Chemical Peels:

Chemical peels are wonderful for rejuvenating the skin! They involve applying a solution to the skin which stimulates exfoliation and new skin cell generation. We have many different types of peels, from those that help with pigmentation, acne to those that improve signs of aging like fine lines, large pores and uneven skin tone. There can be a couple of days of downtime, depending on the type of peel that you select and how deeply it penetrates the skin. After a deeper peel, we recommend using a barrier cream while your skin heals and rejuvenates. A barrier cream is a simple cream with no active ingredients that supports skin healing. Chemical peels do wonders for improving skin texture, evening out skin tone and reducing fine lines.

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL):

IPL therapy utilizes pulses of light energy to target various skin concerns such as sun damage, pigmentation, and vascular lesions. The light energy penetrates the targeted skin cells, causing damage to the target cells. The skin cells then turn brown and eventually flake off. IPL therapy is useful for treating age spots, freckles, and redness, resulting in a more even complexion and rejuvenated skin texture.

High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU):

HIFU technology delivers focused ultrasound energy deep into the skin’s layers, stimulating collagen production and tightening loose or sagging skin. This non-invasive treatment is particularly effective for lifting and sculpting areas prone to skin laxity, such as the jowls, neck, and brows. It is no wonder this treatment is known as the non-surgical facelift!

Radiofrequency Microneedling:

Combining the benefits of microneedling with radiofrequency energy, this advanced treatment targets multiple layers of the skin to stimulate collagen production and improve skin elasticity. Radiofrequency microneedling is ideal for reducing the appearance of acne scars, wrinkles, and enlarged pores, resulting in smoother, firmer skin with minimal downtime.

 

Each of these treatments offers unique benefits, so it is important to consult with a skin specialist in determining what treatment would be best for you. By incorporating these advanced skincare treatments into your routine, you can unlock the full potential of your skin and achieve a radiant, youthful complexion that reflects your inner vitality.
