The Importance of Sunscreen After Skincare Treatment

Sunscreen is important every day, but after a skincare treatment it is even more vital that you don’t skip this part of your skincare routine. Whether you have had a facial, a chemical peel, microdermabrasion, or microneedling, your skin will be extra sensitive in many ways. Avoiding direct sunlight and wearing sunscreen when that is not possible is important for your overall results. Here are some excellent reasons to wear sunscreen after skincare treatment.

Sun Damage Ages You

Sun damage happens when you are in the sun on a daily basis, even if you are not spending vast amounts of time outdoors. The sun’s rays are very aging to the skin. Too much sun exposure can make your skin drier and more apt to burn. After a skincare treatment, your fresh, new skin that is at the surface is extremely sensitive to the sun’s rays. If you spend too much time outdoors without sunscreen just after getting one of these skincare treatments, it will age the new skin faster, and you will not get the results you are seeking.

Dermaplaning: When It’s Appropriate and What You Need to Know

Dermaplaning is the best kept secret of the stars, and now it is available to the masses through select providers. This simple and minimally invasive procedure can give your skin a fresh, radiant look. Before jumping on the celebrity bandwagon and scheduling your own dermaplaning session, you should have some knowledge of what it entails and when it is appropriate.

What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a procedure in which a small 10-blade scalpel is used to scrape the dead skin cells, debris, and peach fuzz from your skin. This is not simply shaving the peach fuzz from your face, which you could do at home. Instead, dermaplaning actually removes dead skin cells and the uppermost thin layer of skin so that fresh new skin can leave you looking fresh and radiant. It should not be attempted at home, in spite of the many how-to guides that can be found online. Continue reading “Dermaplaning: When It’s Appropriate and What You Need to Know”

Rejuvenating Your Skin: What You Need to Know about Microneedling

There are a lot of skin treatments available to help you have fresher, younger-looking skin. One of the best methods for flawless skin is microneedling. This procedure is all natural and minimally invasive. It is preferred by many celebrities, including Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Jennifer Aniston, and Demi Moore, all of whom are constantly praised for their youthful appearance. Learn more about microneedling and how it can help your skin.

Microneedling prompts the body to repair the skin, sending collagen and elastin to the area. Continue reading “Rejuvenating Your Skin: What You Need to Know about Microneedling”

Get Long Lasting Results with Sculptra

If you have deep nasolabial folds, contour deficiencies, or other facial wrinkles, you may benefit from Sculptra treatments. As we age, collagen production in the body wanes. Collagen production actually begins to decrease as early as age 25. Over time, this lack of collagen can result in deep folds around the nose and mouth as you lose volume in your face. Sculptra is one long lasting option that will help you get back to the look you want.

How Does Sculptura Work?

Sculptra is not your average dermal filler. Instead of aiming for fast correction of lines and folds in the face, Sculptra aims for longer lasting results. Sculptra uses poly-L-lactic acid to stimulate collagen growth in the face to reduce folds and wrinkles in the skin. Over the course of several treatments and about three months, you will notice more and more collagen in your face, which reduces the appearance of nasolabial folds and wrinkles.
