Its official… the holidays are here and it’s time to get your glow on!
With the holidays around the corner… it’s the perfect time to get ready for your big events! By starting one of our corrective treatments now accompanied by good quality skin care, your skin will be looking refreshed and ready for a busy holiday season.
Our absolute favorite corrective procedure for fast results with virtually no down time is the IPL (Photofacial). This is a procedure that should always be performed when you know you’re not going to have direct sun exposure. Sun exposure pre or post IPL can make or break your results. For that reason, it’s great to start your series during the fall and winter months. IPL addresses sun damage that typically gets worse during the summer months (think brown spots and redness) leaving you with an even and vibrant complexion.
One reason most patients don’t do stronger chemical peels in summer is that these treatments exfoliate your skin making the fresh skin more vulnerable to sun damage. However, if you are using your sunscreen every day as you should be… treatments can be performed all year long. Winter is a perfect time to start a deep peel series to shed the damage from the summer months, clean out your pores while lightening sun damage. Exfoliation from a chemical peel also allows the products you use at home to penetrate deeper since they aren’t being applied on top of dead skin.
80% of maintaining skin health happens at home, unless you have an aesthetician living at your house…You need to see your aesthetician every 4 to 8 weeks depending on your skin care plan. But what happens with your skin in between sessions? You have to use good quality skin care products. Products that can gently exfoliate, stimulate collagen and elastin as well as protect us from the day to day damage which happens the second you leave your house. Consider good quality skin care products as an insurance plan for the treatments you are doing with your aesthetician.
Start one of these procedures today, accompanied by a customized product regimen so your skin glows just in time for the holiday festivities.
