Our skin is such a wonderfully fascinating organ. Every day it works to protect us while we expose it to the elements and the wear and tear of the fast-paced lives we lead. Although its primary function is for our health and protection, as a medical spa we would be remiss not to discuss the joy so many of us take in caring for our skin for cosmetic purposes as well. No matter the reason, we all want to look and feel our best. Humans have been practicing self-care rituals since the beginning of time. The act of self-care is an act of self-preservation and both of those things are things we all need and deserve.
Our daily skincare rituals are important. However, in the event that you desire a deeper form of care, there are so many tremendous treatments available to rejuvenate, restore, and even preserve our skin. One of our absolute favorite treatments is Microneedling.
Microneedling is a minimally invasive method of renewing and rejuvenating the skin. The technique has little downtime and tremendous benefits. For the treatment, SkinPen® is used to create tiny micro-injuries all across the face, neck, chest, and hands. This is purposeful and strategic as it induces your skin’s natural healing process. As this occurs, your skin increases its production of collagen and elastin which can restore a brighter, more youthful appearance and aid in the improvement of concerns such as fine lines, scarring, and pigmentation. It is recommended to do these treatments in a set of 3, about a month apart, for optimal results.
In between treatments, and after, it is so important to support your healing skin with a preventative daily routine. A preventative skincare routine is your best defense against skin concerns as the body loves consistency and consistency is your best defense against damage. Basic steps like makeup removal, cleansing, chemical exfoliation, sun protection, moisturizing, and staying hydrated are cornerstones in a successful preventative routine that will support your targeted treatments.
We are always happy to consult with our guests on the best at-home routines to keep their skin supported and thriving between visits. Our goal is to provide you with results that last, and the best way to ensure the continued health of your skin is with a plan both inside and outside of the spa. Just remember, preventative skincare will always be the best tool in your self-care toolbox!
