iStock_000011324247XSmallFall is here – and as we move into the sparkling holiday season – we wanted to call out our most popular and effective skincare treatments to help you glow into the holiday.  Of course – our cosmetic treatments are not just affordable – but they are convenient as well – because our professionals know you are on a tight schedule – especially into Fall. Here are our favorites – for women AND men – for fast but super-effective results – to help you look and feel your best, and be more confident into the winter months.

Microdermabrasion –  is the perfect treatment for a anyone “on the go”. This one-hour skin polishing procedure includes blasts of sand-like crystals against the skin, then vacuuming away the crystals, dirt and dead layer of skin. This treatment may be used on your face, neck and chest areas. Downtime is zero, and it’s safe enough to be performed once a month (or even more often depending on skin type!).  It’s a great exfoliation – and ‘maintenance’ treatment to keep your skin looking and feeling great.

Photo Facial (IPL or Intense Pulse Light) – After a long summer in the sun (although we hope you’ve been wearing your sunscreen!) our skin often suffers sun damage. Couple this with aging – in general and the ‘spots’ you get as you grow older – it can leave you – well, seeing SPOTS!  To reduce fine lines, acne scars, age spots, pigmented lesions and broken blood vessels, and sun damage, a photofacial (or ‘foto-facial’ as it’s sometimes spelled…) is the perfect complement for your skin. This treatment uses a machine that emits intense pulse lighting to penetrate all of the skin’s layers producing collagen and blood vessels to constrict.  There might be slight discomfort during the pulses of light, and some redness after the procedure, but patients LOVE the results. A series of several treatments are recommended for optimal results.

DOT C02 SmartXide Laser–  One of the most popular treatments at Skintastic, is the DOT Fractional CO2 SmartXide laser.  This machine offers skin resurfacing without the downtime or red face appearance. This laser may be used for facial rejuvenation, appearance of stretch marks or cellulite which in most cases, only 1 session is needed. Peeling may occur with overall skin tightening, collagen, and smoother skin tone results just get better over the next few months.

What’s better? Some of these treatments are on our monthly skincare program – Skincentives – that is now available at different levels starting at only $59/month. Call our office for details and to get started on a younger looking – more refreshed YOU! #RealBeauty
