December has arrived, but unlike years past, our calendars won’t be filled with holiday parties and events. Because of the pandemic, opportunities to socialize may be few and far between (and likely conducted at a distance!) So, what you can do? Indulge in some needed self-care with our December specials. You can take this time to care for your skin and get it ready to be seen by friends and family in the hopefully-not-too-distant future!
An IPL Photofacial involves intense pulsed light to treat sun damage, even out skin tone, and improve the skin’s texture. Photorejuvenation works by filtering various wavelengths of light to stimulate skin regeneration in the epidermis and dermis. The treatment results in increased collagen and elastin fiber production.
As we age, the dermal layer of our skin becomes thinner and collagen production decreases. The elastin fibers in our skin begin to wear out as well, causing the skin to wrinkle and sag. By stimulating collagen and elastin fiber production, the skin gains a younger, firmer, and tighter appearance again. IPL photofacial treatments are also a beneficial treatment for acne, dark spots, and broken capillaries. tighten pores.

Venus Viva RF
The Venus Viva is a FDA approved skin resurfacer to treat scarring, wrinkles, stretch marks, improve skin texture and correct pigmentation, rosacea and acne scarring.

These tiny wounds mean this treatment is more comfortable than traditional CO2 laser treatment, but still able to produce dramatic results in the skin. The treatment utilizes NanoFractional Radio Frequency and SmartScan Technology to deliver energy through the epidermis to the dermis, generating heat, while stimulating fibroblast and rebuilding collagen.
The Venus Viva RF is a safe and effective treatment for all skin types with very little downtime. Most clients experience redness for 2-5 days following a treatment, but are able to makeup to cover up any redness 24 hours following. On average, 3-6 treatments are needed for optimal results, spaced four weeks apart.
