Does your skin look lackluster and dull? Maybe you feel you look tired and worn out, even if you feel physically on point. Or, maybe your skin is starting to show signs of early aging due to exposure and environmental pollutants. Either way, these skin rejuvenation treatments and options will leave your skin glowing.
Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, works by using very tiny needles to make superficial punctures in the top surface of the skin. This triggers the body into activating a healing response, during which it naturally creates new collagen that plumps and thickens the skin.
While some people shy away at the thought of needles, this treatment is actually very gentle and can be safely used on just about any skin type or area of the body. The most common areas treated are the face, neck, and décolleté. Some of the benefits of microneedling include:
VI CHEMICAL PEELS
The Vi Chemical Peel is considered one of the safest chemical peels on the market today. It is an especially effective treatment for people with skin discoloration issues like hyperpigmentation and melasma.
These conditions are often difficult to treat, even with lasers. The Vi Chemical Peel works at the cellular level to gently peel your skin. It’s combined vitamins and acids help to induce collagen production, tighten the skin, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
The result? Your skin looks brighter and more even-toned. Another benefit of Vi Chemical Peel is that peeling is so light it’s nearly unnoticeable. You can go about your day without people noticing the after-effects.
Harsher peels result in harsher peeling, and sometimes, noticeable flaking. And while the result is often worth it, they do require more downtime. Wear a light moisturizer to successfully mask the signs of peeling as you go about your day.
In addition to melasma and hyperpigmentation, some of the conditions the Vi Chemical Peel is commonly used to treat include:
OTHER CHEMICAL PEEL OPTIONS
Chemical peels are designed and formulated to address problem skin needs. However, it’s still important to use the right product for your individual skin. Your medical provider will work with you to assess your skin and determine which peel is best for you. To help you understand your options, the few most common are:
COSMELAN CHEMICAL PEEL
Used primarily to treat hyperpigmentation and melasma. It brightens skin tone by blocking the production of the enzymes responsible for creating melanin. Cosmelan chemicals may also balance your skin’s oil production to help control adult acne. The procedure is quick, involves very little discomfort, and is fantastic for all skin types. It is also safe for pregnant women.
DSE MASK CHEMICAL PEEL
Treats more moderate cases of hyperpigmentation and mild acne. This mask is also great for reversing the signs of photoaging and early fine lines and wrinkles. Vitamin A-based creams like DSE stop tyrosinase activity to slow the pigmentation process by splitting apart melanosomes. It also works to renew and rejuvenate the epidermis.
BIO C CHEMICAL PEEL
Especially useful after a drying summer in the sun. This gentler peel contains hyaluronic acid to stimulate collagen production as well as vitamin C to hydrate and rejuvenate, leaving your skin bright while reversing some of the sun’s aging effects. This peel is considered painless and is also safe for pregnant women.
ULTIMATE EYE CORRECTOR
Your eyes are the window to your soul, right? Well, maybe not exactly, but they definitely give away signs of allergies, fatigue, and aging. The Ultimate Eye Corrector is a treatment for the periorbital area – that’s the area directly around the eyes.
It’s a two-step treatment that gently exfoliates and rejuvenates the eye area with a protein synthesis formulation for firmness and elasticity improvement. Think of it like an eye lift, only without the surgery, downtime, or pain.
FACIAL SKIN REJUVENATION TREATMENTS
Facials can be relaxing, but they’re also an excellent non-surgical option for patients who want to rejuvenate and improve the skin.
FIRE AND ICE FACIAL
Offers dramatically noticeable results. It gently resurfaces the skin, letting you walk away with softer, smoother tones and a clearer complexion. Fire and Ice also reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles with on side effects or visible peeling.
Contains a specialized hydrating formula. This product soothes the skin while giving a better overall appearance with improved elasticity and firmness. Epionce also contains barrier lipids and other properties that make it a great treatment for those who frequently battle red and irritated skin.
PALM SPRINGS FACIAL
Truly unique! This peel is made with medjool dates grown right in Palm Springs. Once grown, they’re blended with malic and citric acids that gently remove dead skin cells from the surface of the skin while infusing it with a healthy blend of antioxidants, minerals, and vitamins. Your skin will simply glow after this facial treatment.
Tech specs aside, we also have to talk about other incredible benefits like these:
Remember, your skin is your largest organ and it plays a huge role in protecting you every single day. Your skin acts as a barrier between you and all of the pollutants and free radicals you come into contact with on a regular basis.
A good skincare routine combined with regular facials will help you to keep your skin clean and clear while slowing the hands of time. After a little extra pampering, your skin really will glow.
