For 2023, one of our resolutions is to start taking our skincare routine up a notch by visiting more spas where we can get professional skincare treatments. Getting treatments done by aestheticians can help improve skincare concerns significantly since aestheticians have access to treatments that we cannot perform at home. To find out which treatments we will be checking out this year, as well as what products we will be using at home to help maintain results, keep on reading!
LED therapy is a treatment that is traditionally done at spas and consists of infrared lights that have skincare benefits, such as killing bacteria on the skin or helping to promote circulation. There are different LED colors, such as red and blue, that target anti-aging and acne-prone skin. The results can include smoother fine lines and wrinkles and more even-looking skin.
We love LED therapy as it is a non-invasive way to address skincare issues, but it important that we follow up LED treatments with the proper aftercare. Because skin can become more prone to burns, it is important that you apply sunscreen daily. We like using Protect UV Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Moisturizing Spray because it helps soothe skin while also offering sun protection.
We love getting facials with COSMEDIX products! Many spas that offer our products perform similar facials, such as the Blueberry Smoothie Peel or the Pomegranate Peel. Getting a facial helps exfoliate the skin and give pores a deep cleaning that you cannot perform yourself at home. Many estheticians recommend getting a facial once a month to help exfoliate and renew skin as skin cells often naturally regenerate.
While we love facials, it is *super* important that you are doing the correct aftercare to ensure that you get the best results. Staying out of the sun and going light on makeup are good places to start, but using Cell ID Nutritive Defense Serum can help support the skins protective barrier and lock in moisture so can enjoy your rejuvenated skin as long as possible.
Microdermabrasion is a mechanical exfoliation that helps to resurface the skin. This form of exfoliation is done at spas through a handheld device that includes ultra-fine crystals and a vacuum that removes excess oil, dirt, and dead skin cells to reveal smoother, more radiant-looking skin.
Because microdermabrasion facial treatments are exfoliating the skin, it is important that your skin remails moisturized and hydrated post treatment so you can have the best results. We suggest using Hydrate + Broad Spectrum SPF 17 Moisturizing Sunscreen during the day to hydrate and protect skin from the sun, and using Emulsion Intense Hydrator at night for total moisture restoration.
Dermaplaning consists of an aesthetician exfoliating your skin with a razor to remove peach fuzz and dead skin cells to help reveal brighter and smoother-looking skin. While dermaplaning is similar to shaving your face, this procedure is performed by a licensed professional and provides exfoliation in addition to hair removal. The benefits of dermaplaning include smoothing out skin texture and softening the skin.
While dermaplaning is not an invasive procedure, it is still important to practice the correct after care to ensure that you get the best results. Ensuring that your skin is moisturized consistently can help prevent dryness and potential irritation. We love using a combo of Peptide-Rich Defense Moisturizer with Broad Spectrum SPF 50 and Mystic Hydrating Treatment throughout the day to provide extra hydration while also helping to protect skin from environmental stressors.
