Tips for healthy skin

Everyone wants their skin to look and feel beautiful during the holidays. You can achieve that healthy glow by combining exfoliation, skincare products and laser treatments. These treatments will give you a beautiful and healthy complexion.

Healthy skin starts with regular exfoliation. Exfoliating removes the outer most layer of dead skin cells, called the stratum corneum. This process helps stimulate new skin cell growth and rejuvenates the skin.

There are many ways to exfoliate your skin, including microdermabrasion, chemical peels, chemical exfoliators in skincare products and special cleansing brushes like the Clarisonic brush.

Microdermabrasion is a mechanical form of exfoliating. There are many different systems used by professionals in skincare centers, some better than others, but all are the equivalent to a light “sanding” of the surface of the skin. Visible results are short term, but the long-term effects can be very beneficial.

Chemical peels are another mechanical method of exfoliation. Like microdermabrasion, there are several different types of chemical peels for various skin types delivering varying results. Typically, the more visible peeling will yield better results, but this can result in possibly some downtime.

Good medical-grade skincare regimens will include products containing chemical exfoliators for daytime and night time exfoliation.

Laser treatments
Laser treatments provide skin rejuvenation at every layer of the dermis and can make visible improvements in skin tone, texture, laxity and elasticity.

Limelight treats the epidermal layer of the skin. It is an intense pulsed light, or IPL, treatment that removes redness and brown pigmentation leaving the skin clearer.

Laser Genesis (a non-ablative resurfacing treatment) delivers heat to the mid dermal layer of the skin, stimulating blood and oxygen flow. This gently plumps skin while stimulating new collagen growth leaving the skin looking fresh and rejuvenated.

Titan delivers heat to the deep dermal layer of the skin, where most of our collagen is, stimulating and tightening collagen, thus improving skin laxity.

eMatrix ™ is a new sublative fractional device that delivers radio frequency energy to the two lower layers of the dermis. This improves texture, tone and skin laxity without causing injury to the epidermis like most fractional treatments, so there is little to no downtime.
