Get Your Skin Wedding Ready

Tag Archives: HydraFacial

Preparing for a wedding can be stressful. So why add to that stress by not assuring yourself flawless skin for the big day? Our aesthetician Jamie Popp shares a timeline of when she recommends skincare treatments for brides and grooms-to-be.

One Year

It is recommended to begin a consistent and customized skincare routine. “Starting at this time is ideal because it gives patients plenty of time to find out which treatments and/or products work best for their skin. From there, it is much easier to plan a regimen moving forward,” says Jamie.

Seven Months

Botox or Dysport: Botox and Dysport are cosmetic treatments that reduce or eliminate facial lines and wrinkles. The results usually last about 3-4 months, allowing ample time for any touch-ups that may be needed down the road.

Lip Fillers: The most popular lip filler we use is Restylane Kysse. This treatment gives the lips a natural, fuller look that lasts about a year.

Six Months

Acne: A HydraFacial or Acne Facial are both ideal options for managing breakouts. Starting at this time will allow several treatments which will help to further improve the condition. It is important to note that depending on the severity of the acne, it may be recommended either treatment sooner.

Four Months

Chemical Peels or Photorejuvenation: Both treatments can help with discoloration, acne scars, and sun spots at varying levels. In regards to which one is right for you, that depends on your specific pigmentation concerns.

Three Months

HydraFacial: “For patients that are not dealing with acne concerns, I recommend starting HydraFacials at this time. I then suggest them to come in monthly, coordinating it so that the third one is the week of the wedding,” says Jamie. “It will give them an amazing bridal glow.”

Dermaplaning: A great way to exfoliate the skin on the face. This treatment involves using a sterile scalpel to gently remove the dead, top layer of skin (along with a fair amount of peach fuzz). This in turn gives a fresh and smooth appearance. As a perfect complement to a HydraFacial, pair the two together for maximum results.

One Month

Botox/Dysport: If a tune-up is needed prior to the wedding it is recommended to have it no closer than a month before. That way if there is any bruising that occurs, it will subside in time.

Week Of

HydraFacial: The gentle nature of the treatment will leave the skin with an immaculate, radiant glow.

With Summer in full swing, we rounded up some things we recommend to our patients this time of year.

Summer Essentials 2022

  1. SkinCeuticals Simply Clean. This is a great cleanser for all skin types, especially oily and acne-prone. Not only does it do wonders in removing excess oil and debris from the skin (which this time of year is more common), but it is also a great makeup remover as well.
  2. SkinCeuticals Light Moisture UV Defense SPF 50. An amazing weightless sunscreen that can be used on both the face and body. Some nice things about it are it doesn’t clog pores and its quick absorption does a good job of preventing it from getting on clothing. It’s also an amazing moisturizer, making it a must for anyone with dry skin.
  3. Underarm Laser Hair Removal. This is a perfect area to treat during the summer because, with laser hair removal, it is essential to avoid the sun. And since the underarms are not typically exposed to it, treatment can still be done. Another positive, it’s effective in getting rid of any pesky ingrown hairs.
  4. HydraFacial. The warm, sunny weather can have quite the impact on drying out our skin. That’s why the HydraFacial is one of our favorite treatments this time of year. Aside from providing the skin with much-needed hydration, it also helps to unclog the pores from sweat and sunscreen leaving the skin ‘glowing’ right after treatment.

If your skin is in need of some revitalization through the summer months, contact our office today.

Summer WomanWith Summer officially around the corner, even warmer weather is on the way. But for those who are prone to acne, that is not necessarily a good thing. The reason is that during this time more sweat and oil are produced. This, in turn, can lead to more breakouts.

So, if you are one of the many who suffer from acne breakouts, what can you do? One of our favorite treatments for the condition is the HydraFacial with the ZO Skin Health Rozatrol Booster. This supercharged treatment not only helps to manage oil production but also soothes the appearance of red, sensitized skin as well. Immediately after treatment, the skin is left with a noticeably clearer, radiant glow.

If you deal with acne breakouts and are ready to say goodbye to them, we here at Lisa S. Ball, FNP can help! Schedule an appointment with us today.

Boosters are serums that can be added onto a HydraFacial to help customize the treatment for specific skincare needs. Each booster has its own unique benefits and is very effective in enhancing the overall results of a HydraFacial.HydraFacial Boosters

Some of our most popular boosters include:

1) Dermabuilder – Helps to even out skin tone, smooth the appearance of fine lines/wrinkles, and enhance the skin’s overall elasticity.

2) Alastin Trihex-Pro Booster – Clears out damaged collagen and elastin while assisting the skin in developing more. It can also help to improve the overall tone and texture of the skin.

3) Circadia Chrono-Peptide – Further energizes the skin, which in turn, leaves it more radiant and glowing.

4) Senté Dermal Repair – Enhances hydration while helping reduce the appearance of redness.

As you may already know, a HydraFacial is a great way to pamper your skin. Offering a variety of benefits, this revolutionary treatment can achieve some pretty amazing results. Pair it with a Perk, however, and those results get even better!

HydraFacial Perk

So, what’s a Perk? A Perk is an add-on treatment to a HydraFacial that specifically targets the most delicate areas of the face (eyes and lips). Utilizing patented roller-flex technology, the results of the treatment are immediate and long-lasting.

For the eyes, a combination of horse chestnut seed extract and arnica flower extract help to tone, firm, and hydrate the area. And then for the lips, ingredients of peppermint oil and peony extract are able to refresh, hydrate, and lightly plump the area.

So, if you want to take your HydraFacial to the next level a Perk is the way to go! To learn more about a HydraFacial with a Perk or to schedule an appointment, contact our office today.

The holidays can be a stressful (and cold) time of year. Due to that, skincare is of the utmost importance. That’s why treating yourself to a chemical peel or HydraFacial is a must! So, which is best for you? We asked our aesthetician Jamie Popp and here’s what she had to say about the benefits of each: Chemical Peel OR HydraFacial Woman

Chemical Peel

  • Safe for all skin types
  • Enhances skin tone and texture
  • Great for anti-aging (fine lines and wrinkles)
  • Minimizes pore size
  • Helps with acne
  • Penetrates deep into the skin, working underneath the epidermis
  • Continues to help the skin even after treatment
  • One of the best treatment options for melasma
  • Perfect for skin sensitivity to rosacea
  • Aside from the face, it can also be used on the neck, chest, and hands

HydraFacial

  • Safe for all skin types
  • Cleanses deep into the pores
  • Offers a milder chemical peel
  • Lasting hydration
  • Leaves the skin dewy in appearance, with a noticeable glow
  • Kills acne bacteria
  • Exfoliates by removing dead skin cells

Overall, a HydraFacial is a much more comprehensive and in-depth treatment in comparison to a chemical peel. But, if you are looking to even your skin tone and remove dark spots, a chemical peel may be the better option.

Rozatrol Booster

Adding a booster to a HydraFacial offers a variety of benefits for the skin. And with October being Eczema Awareness Month, we wanted to highlight one booster, in particular, the ZO Skin Health Rozatrol.

This booster is great for eczema because it was specifically developed with the skin condition in mind. Offering a combination of redness relieving ingredients, it’s perfect for minimizing the appearance of skin redness and dryness. In doing that, the overall appearance of the skin is improved with a smoother texture and more even tone.

Overall, the ZO Skin Health Rozatrol is a phenomenal option for eczema that provides patients instant relief and cumulative benefits as they continue with the treatment.
