Facials Have Evolved so Your Skin Can, Too!
- Posted on: Feb 14 2021
Getting a facial used to be perceived as a pampering luxury much like getting your hair done. Today, facials are not limited to making the skin feel fresh and smooth for a few days. In our Fresno office, our trained staff perform several different types of facial treatments, all aimed at supporting the skin as it ages and faces external stressors. Here, we discuss a few.
The Salt Facial
The SaltFacial L’avantage is a three-step treatment that combined pure, natural sea salt, high-powered LED light therapy, and cavitation ultrasound. Together, these technologies help to replenish, restore, and rejuvenate the skin. The salt facial can address a variety of medical and cosmetic skin conditions, including dark spots, psoriasis, eczema, enlarged pores, sun damage, stretch marks, uneven skin tone, and the signs of aging. It is appropriate for all skin types and does not irritate so no downtime is needed.
You may know that deep exfoliation now and then can be very beneficial for the skin. Exfoliation is the act of removing surface debris that is clogging pores and dulling the skin’s vibrancy. One of the ways that professionals have been doing this for years has been to perform microdermabrasion. This technique sloughs off dead and damaged cells using a mildly abrasive instrument that “sands” the skin. The HydraFacial takes this one step further. While removing cellular debris and immediately suctioning it away from the skin, the HydraFacial device simultaneously infuses the skin with nourishing serums. These can be customized to address specific needs, such as aging or acne. The HydraFacial takes about half an hour and incurs no downtime.
The AQUAGOLD® fine touch™ is a specialized treatment that infuses the skin with personalized, micro dosed therapeutics. This technique may be a perfect follow-up to a standard medical-grade facial or other aesthetic services. AQUAGOLD is known as the Golden Cocktail Facial among celebrities because it is customized to address individual goals and concerns. The introduction of therapeutic ingredients just under the dermis can plump, tighten, and brighten the skin. AQUAGOLD can also reduce inflammation, acne scarring, pore size, and redness and improve pigmentation, tone, and texture. Which ingredients are selected are determined by each patient’s skin. For some, the 24K pure gold-plated surgical-grade stainless steel microchannels may deliver microdoses of Botox. For others, fillers may be delivered into the tiny lines around the mouth or other areas.
