The Different Benefits of Peels, Hydrafacials, and Microdermabrasion
- Posted on: Jul 24 2017
The wonderful thing about living in Florida is that, while the majority of America may be cold half the year, we are still always enjoying the sun and the warm weather. Just ask the snowbirds, I’m sure they’ll tell you! Yes, we have an abundance of sunshine here in the sunshine state and, although this is a blessing, it can also have a dark side.
The importance of proper skin care in Florida, especially over the summer months, cannot be overemphasized. With hot weather can come dehydrated skin, sunburns, and other forms of skin damage. It’s one of the reasons why using an effective sunscreen is so important throughout the year. But even for the most careful among us, sun damage is likely to happen at some point. What is the solution? At Azul’s Medical Spa, we offer a number of skincare treatments that will help treat sun damage, minimize any signs of aging, and keep your skin healthy from summer of one year straight through to the summer of the next. And to sweeten the pot even more, we are offering a special throughout July. You get 10% off all our skincare services, including three of our most popular Medical Spa treatments:
A great facial can be more like a wonderful, relaxing massage. It’s a chance just to lay back and be pampered. Unfortunately, some facials don’t give your skin the boost you may think they do. A superficial cleansing and some hydration may leave you radiant for a few hours after the facial, but what about after a week? Is there a facial out there that can really make a long-term difference in the health of your skin? HydraFacial MD is a facial using cutting-edge aesthetic techniques that will leave your skin radiant and healthy in ways that a regular old facial couldn’t dream. It’s made up of four easy steps. First is cleansing and exfoliation. Here, we use a special spiral tool to buff away dead skin cells and open your pores. Next, we give you a mild acid peel to reveal the deeper layers of the skin. Then it’s extraction time. We use a special vacuum tool to remove the blackheads and other impurities that were trapped in your pores. Finally, we apply a special serum to your skin made from hyaluronic acid, antioxidants, and other soothing products. Thanks to the previous steps, this serum will be able to penetrate deeper into your skin, so you will be seeing the results for days after the facial is over. All this, and it only takes around 30 minutes! Now THAT’S a facial!
A chemical peel is where we apply a chemical solution, usually an acid, to your skin, intentionally damaging its top layer. As the damaged skin exfoliates, the healthier, smoother skin under it will be revealed. Peels are a simple and easy way to minimize wrinkles, eliminate hyperpigmentation, and help refresh aging skin.
Since everyone’s skin is different, your chemical peel will be specifically for you and your skin. If you have sensitive skin, a very light Micropeel might be in order. If you want something a little stronger, we could give you a Jessner or Glycolic Peel which improves the texture and tone of your skin. If you wanted to go all in, we could give you a TCA peel that can help address hyperpigmentation, fine lines, and wrinkles.
For the ultimate in exfoliation, you want to give microdermabrasion a try. It’s a non-surgical procedure where we resurface your skin, buffing away dead skin and damaged cells to reveal the softer and tighter skin beneath. It is especially effective at treating acne scars and sun damage. It is a little bit like “sanding” your skin. There is very little downtime associated with microdermabrasion and, after just 24 hours, any pinkness should subside to reveal healthier, more radiant skin. We generally recommend you get a series of these for the most benefit.
In Florida, beating the heat means more than just temperature. It also means beating the effect the sun can have on our skin. At Azul, we believe that proper skincare is the best cosmetic treatment. By paying attention to your skin’s health now, you can delay the signs of aging such as wrinkles, sun spots, and looseness. The HydraFacial MD, Peels, and Microdermabrasion are just three treatments that can rejuvenate your skin and turn back the clock on sun damage. And remember, all three procedures are 10% off this July! To schedule a treatment, or book a free consultation, please call us at (239) 415-7576.
