Summer is in full swing! Between all of the BBQs, pool days and time spent in the sun with friends and family, don’t forget to schedule in some R&R for your skin.
Beat the heat with our three favorite sun-friendly treatments: HydraFacial, microneedling and injectables.
Living in Boise, we’re used to hot summers, but the dry environment can have detrimental effects on the skin. When the air around you lacks humidity, skin can dry out — causing itching, cracking, flaking, and tightness. Additionally, the lack of moisture can expose fine lines and wrinkles, making for an uncomfortable season.
Luckily, there’s HydraFacial. As the name suggests, this quenching treatment deeply hydrates the skin helping restore plumpness to the dermis (the outermost layer of skin), leaving your skin restored and your face glowing.
HydraFacial is a 30-minute treatment that turns dull, lifeless skin into hydrated, healthy skin. During the procedure, the HydraFacial removes dead skin cells and extracts impurities while simultaneously bathing the new skin with cleansing, hydrating, and moisturizing targeted serums selected specifically for your needs. Since the HydraFacial treatment is designed for all skin types, you don’t need to worry about adverse side effects — HydraFacial can help refine and reveal radiant skin after just one treatment.
Procedures like lasering and chemical peels are great, but they also require avoiding the sun, something that’s much harder to achieve when the weather is nice. A great anti-aging alternative is microneedling.
The procedure works by injuring the skin and forcing regrowth, which increases the production of collagen. Microneedling offers many benefits: it’s used to treat and improve conditions like acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, loose skin, skin texture, pore size, brown spots, stretch marks, and pigment issues.
The result is younger-looking skin that will have you feeling confident enough to go makeup-free, bumping this renaissance treatment to the top of our must-do list.
Don’t fear the needle! Whether you’re interested in exploring Botox or Dysport as an anti-aging option, or dip your toe into the world of filler, we’ve got your back. Both treatments are quick, long-lasting, and will help you feel like the best version of yourself.
Botox and Dysport are common and quick procedures used to treat crow’s feet, forehead lines, laugh lines, and other signs of aging. They work by blocking signals from the nerves to the muscles, resulting in decreased muscle activity. With the injected muscle unable to contract, the treated wrinkles relax and soften for three months. (Don’t worry, with the right injector, you’ll look younger and refreshed without looking “frozen”.)
Fillers, on the other hand, literally fill in the area where they’re injected. The active ingredient found in dermal fillers is hyaluronic acid (HA), which is a naturally occurring substance already found in the skin. Injected, it restores plumpness and replenishes your body’s natural production of hyaluronic acid.
One injection can last up to a year and will add volume and decrease wrinkles depending on the injection site and desired aesthetic. Fillers work immediately, so you’ll walk out of the office looking fabulous.
