While the summer is one of our favorite seasons, all that sunshine can have some harsh and damaging effects on our skin. Read on to hear about some of our favorite fall treatments that can help restore our healthy glow!
VI Peel is a medium depth chemical peel that works to improve the tone, texture, and clarity of our skin. This essentially painless peel is safe for all skin types and comes in different blends to address hyperpigmentation, fine lines/wrinkles, acne, stretch marks, scarring, and more! Approved for use on the face or body, the VI Peel treatment takes just a few minutes to apply. Peeling typically starts around 3 days after application and may continue over the course of a few days. Because this peel is self-neutralizing, you’ll leave the spa with the peel still applied! But don’t worry- immediately after treatment you’ll be sent home with a post-care kit and written post-care instructions, including important dos and don’ts, to help you achieve the most optimal results!
Also known as collagen induction therapy, the SkinPen is an FDA approved microneedling device used to treat acne scarring or fine lines/wrinkles. The treatment involves the use of tiny needles to create “microtraumas” in the skin’s surface. This process stimulates the body’s wound healing cascade, including boosting the production of collagen and elastin. The results are improved skin texture with a more youthful appearance! The treatment takes 45 minutes-1 hour and includes a cleanse and application of numbing cream prior to treatment! Downtime is minimal and includes redness or erythema, which typically resolves over 24-48 hours.
One of the most sought-after spa treatments, Hydrafacial is a quick way to reset your skin with instantaneous results. Known as the “Hydrafacial Glow,” this treatment leaves the skin looking and feeling notably refreshed. Treatments include a deep cleanse and exfoliation, as well as a light peel. Think of it like a power washer for your face! And the best part? Each treatment can be customized to include a booster serum to further target individual concerns, LED light to target inflammation, fine lines/wrinkles, or bacteria, or lymphatic drainage to boost lymph circulation in the face, making the skin appear brighter and less puffy!
LASER HAIR REMOVAL
Tired of shaving or waxing? Fall is a great time to start laser hair removal (LHR)! While technically known as laser hair reduction, this process involves the use of laser technology to target hair follicles during a specific phase of the growth cycle. Common areas treated include face, underarms, bikini, and leg! The laser penetrates hair follicles in the treated area and disrupts the growth cycle, resulting sparse growth with a finer texture. For best results, treatments should be done in a series to target each follicle during the appropriate growth phase. Treatment times vary depending on area and may take as little as 10 minutes to 1+ hours. While results vary by individual, we aim for an 80% reduction in hair growth at the end of 6 treatments. One to two treatments per year may be required to maintain results.
