With lots of festivities coming up you may be thinking of how to look your best and have beautiful, radiant skin just in time for the holidays. There are options available and there is hope!
First, let's talk about hydration. That's right H2O! It may not feel as hot out finally, however, it is still very important to quench your thirst, especially when it comes to your skin. Water is essential to maintain your optimum skin moisture and deliver essential nutrients to the skin cells.
Approximately 50% to 70% of our body mass is made up of water, including skin, tissues, cells and organs. Water replenishes the skin tissue and increases its elasticity. This helps delay the appearance of signs of aging like wrinkles and fine lines. Drinking enough water combats skin disorders like psoriasis, wrinkles and eczema. It also increases the metabolic rate and improves the digestive system to flush out toxins from the body. This, in turn, gives you healthy and glowing skin. So, drink up with plenty of water, your skin and body will thank you!
Now let's talk about rejuvenating your skin with advanced treatment options by Venus Versaâ„¢. Venus Versaâ„¢ provides a non-surgical solution for skin resurfacing. It works using small pins that safely deliver energy through the skin's surface. This creates tiny wounds, which the body then works to heal naturally. This process is what repairs signs of damage seen on the surface of the skin. The most common signs of skin damage include scars from injury, acne, or other skin conditions, visible pores, stretch marks, deep wrinkles, and abnormal skin texture.
Wondering who the ideal candidate for this awesome procedure would be?
Anyone showing signs of skin damage or has imperfections that affect the texture of their skin! This treatment can be done on ALL skin tones! This procedure is more comfortable than most traditional skin resurfacing treatments. Not only do you notice smoother, healthier skin, but you will have low downtime! Meaning, you will be able to return to your daily activities immediately after treatment and resume regular skincare routine after 24 hours.
Another amazing skin resurfacing treatment that will give your skin a beautiful glow is microneedling. For those of you that perhaps have never heard of this treatment before, it might sound quite scary. It is actually comfortable, with numbing cream applied of course! It is fairly quick and non-invasive. Microneedling helps the skinâ€™s repair process by improving the appearance of softer wrinkles and skin. If you want to enhance this procedure, you can add PRP to it which would be like adding syrup to pancakes or icing to your cake. It makes it that much better!
So what is PRP? It is Platelet Rich Plasma using your own blood. This treatment is effective because itÂ utilizes your own natural platelets found in your blood to stimulate new cell growth, helping improve your complexion, skin texture, and restore lost facial volume.Â With the PRP on your skin, the gliding of the pen drives the platelets into your skin to rejuvenate and reinvigorate cellular turnover. Platelets have the unique ability to rev up collagen and elastin production.
Ultimately, you will be contemplating what procedure may be best for you, but it comes down to what best fits your personal goal. Although at the end of either treatment, your skin will be bright red and may feel hot or warm for about 24 hours, the downtime is very short and well worth it! After the healing and exfoliating have taken place, you will notice an immediate â€œglowâ€ to your skin. You may continue to have visible changes to your skin, developing over the course of several days and weeks and your results can continue to improve up to 6 months! How amazing is that? It's well worth investing a day or maybe a few to feel better about your complexion and look your best. After all, who doesn't want to revive their "glow" and shine bright for the most wonderful time of the year!
