As we age, the effects of sun, gravity and facial expressions take a toll on the appearance of our skin, especially on the face. Lines and wrinkles, while often expected with age, can be displeasing, especially if they appear at a young age. Facials and resurfacing treatments are effective in maintaining and correcting skin.

CO2 laser skin resurfacing treatments “turn back the clock” on your complexion, revealing more youthful skin that lies underneath. This treatment can also lessen the appearance of scars and other imperfections. Benefits include the correction of moderate to deep lines and wrinkles, as well as treatment for uneven pigmentation, photodamage, precancerous spots, other skin imperfections and benign lesions.

This treatment can be done on many areas, including the full face and neck, or areas such as eyes, chest, hands, around the mouth, incisional scars and more

For skin of all ages, clogged pores work against the efforts of taking care of your skin.  Cleansers, creams and serums won’t be as effective if your skin is suffering from excess dryness, uneven tone or free-radical congestion. Free-radical congestion is healthy cells turned unhealthy because of trauma. The more we have, the faster our skin ages and the faster we look older. Facials remove dead skin cells and extra oil from your pores, helps your skin breathe and look healthier and helps prevent breakouts. One of the most important elements of a facial is the face mask. It can be used for calming skin, as well as hydrating and/or decongesting.

Facials are good for cleansing and getting to know your complexion. Think of it as therapy or counseling for your skin. Your trained aesthetician will know what to do with your skin type and will give you tips on how to keep your skin balanced. Consistent product usage will yield consistently beautiful results. Normally facials have quick results, so if you have a special event, you can have a facial on the same day and have glowing skin that can showcase a lot of makeup or none at all! However, getting regular facials helps regulate what your skin endures with the changing seasons. Getting a facial in the spring will help invigorate and nourish dull post-winter skin. Getting a facial in autumn will help your skin prepare for cold months ahead. Spending an hour in a peaceful, relaxing environment can help restore balance to your mind, as well as your skin. Creating a skincare schedule keeps your skin looking beautiful all year long!
