In June, we celebrate Beautiful in Your Skin Month! At Mind Body Infusion Med Spa, we are all about helping you achieve the results you want in order to feel comfortable and happy as your own beautiful self. One of the ways we do this is by spreading the importance of taking care of your skin.
We are here to give you all the details on preventing and reversing the effects of skin damage at home and in our office!
Preventing Skin Damage
Here are a few ways you can work prevention into your everyday routine.
Sunscreen & Shade
While we love that warm summer sun, too much exposure to UV rays can cause damage to your skin. This includes sunburns, dry skin, wrinkles, and even skin cancer. This is why it is so important to add sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 to your skincare routine. Put some on every morning before leaving the house.
Remember: even if the forecast is cloudy, you will still be exposed to UV rays throughout the day!
You can also take preventive measures by staying in the shade whenever possible, wearing hats and long sleeves, and avoiding tanning beds.
Getting regular facials is another excellent way to keep your skin looking its best. Our facials are designed to cleanse, tone, treat, and moisturize your skin. During the treatment portion of your facial, your practitioner will apply products to exfoliate, infuse vitamins, and enhance moisture levels — all of which help with anti-aging.
Take a look at our facial menu and discover more about how they can improve your complexion.
Reversing Skin Damage
If you have already sustained skin damage, no worries here! There are several ways we can help you reverse this damage and get your skin glowing again.
Retinoids are products chock-full of vitamin A which helps increase cellular turnover and produces more collagen. This will give you a plump, youthful appearance. Retinoids have been known to smooth fine lines and wrinkles, tone the skin, and repair sun damage.
Like vitamin A, vitamin C is a great way to reduce fine wrinkles and add an extra layer of protection from the sun. When searching for a vitamin C product to use, be sure to find one with the active form of the vitamin for the best results.
Exfoliating helps remove dead skin cells from your skin, allowing new cells to shine through. Washing away all of those darkened, damaged skin cells will leave you with brighter and more even skin.
Facials & Other Treatments
We've discussed how facials and treatments can help prevent skin damage, now let's take a look at how they can reverse it.
A chemical peel uses a solution to remove the damaged outer layers of skin. This process jump-starts the cellular turnover process, revealing new and healthy skin cells.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
Laser resurfacing is a minimally invasive procedure that uses laser energy to improve the appearance of your skin. It can treat wrinkles, age spots, acne scars, and other types of damage.
LED therapy is a painless and non-invasive treatment that uses different wavelengths of light to target specific areas below the skin surface. The light energy stimulates collagen production and targets damaged cells.
Microdermabrasion is a gentle exfoliating treatment that uses tiny crystals to remove the top layer of dead skin cells. This process can help improve the appearance of sun damage, fine lines, and wrinkles.
