Bye Bye Breakouts: Acne Awareness Month

June 13, 2024

June is Acne Awareness Month, and this month we’re shining a spotlight on a common yet often misunderstood skin condition that affects millions worldwide. Join us as we raise awareness, share insights, and empower individuals to navigate the journey to clearer, healthier skin.

Acne is a common skin concern that affects people of all ages and skin types, often causing frustration and embarrassment. From hormonal fluctuations to excess sebum production, the causes of acne are diverse and multifaceted. However, with the advancements in medSPA treatments, managing and treating acne has become more accessible and effective than ever before. In this blog post, we’ll explore some of the most innovative medSPA solutions for banishing breakouts and achieving clearer, smoother skin.

Understanding Acne: Before diving into treatment options, it’s essential to understand the underlying causes of acne. Acne occurs when hair follicles become clogged with oil and dead skin cells, leading to the formation of whiteheads, blackheads, pimples, and cysts. Hormonal changes, genetics, diet, and skincare products can all contribute to the development of acne.

By delivering multiple wavelengths of light into the skin, BBL promotes collagen production, reduces inflammation, and eliminates acne-causing bacteria. The BBL Clear treatment specifically targets acne, using a combination of blue, yellow, and infrared light to clear breakouts and promote skin healing.
  2. VI Chemical Peels: VI Chemical Peels are multi-faceted treatments designed to address various triggers and symptoms of acne. The VI Peel Purify is formulated to sweep away dead skin cells, unclog pores, and eliminate acne bacteria, resulting in fewer breakouts and smoother skin texture.

When combined with other medSPA treatments, Hydrafacials create a foundation for optimal results.

It’s important to note that consistency is key when it comes to treating acne with medSPA solutions. Patients may require multiple sessions spaced over several weeks to achieve optimal results. Additionally, proper skincare maintenance and a healthy lifestyle can help enhance the effectiveness of medSPA treatments and prolong their benefits.

With the advancements in medSPA technology and treatments, managing acne has never been more achievable. Whether you’re dealing with occasional breakouts or persistent acne, there’s a medSPA solution tailored to your needs. By incorporating innovative treatments like BBL, VI Chemical Peels, and Hydrafacials into your skincare routine, you can bid farewell to breakouts and hello to clearer, smoother skin.

Discover Top medspa Neck Treatments for Ultimate Rejuvenation

February 28, 2024

When discussing aging signs, we often only focus on our faces. Patients are now going beyond facial treatments and turning their attention towards another telltale sign of aging – the neck. Botox, Dermal Fillers, Microneedling, Broadband Light (BBL), and Moxi treatments have emerged as powerful and effective solutions, offering a wide range of benefits for neck rejuvenation.  

Let’s take a look at each of these treatments and understand how these services can ‘turn back time’, and help aid in a smoother, more youthful neck. 

Botox for Platysmal Bands (Neck Bands): 

Botox, commonly associated with facial wrinkles, can also work wonders for our platysmal bands (neck bands). As we age, our skin loses volume and these muscles become hyperactive over the years, making these bands appear more prominent. These vertical lines can be effectively smoothed out with the help of Botox injections. By targeting these muscles, Botox blocks nerve signals which in turn relaxes the muscles and minimizes the appearance of these fine lines and wrinkles, ultimately leaving you with a smoother, younger looking neck. While results are not permanent, patients can expect to retreat every 3-4 months. 

Dermal Fillers for Neck Lines: 

As we know, hyaluronic acid based dermal fillers are proven to restore lost volume, add definition and help smooth out deep onset facial wrinkles. When injected in the neck, these dermal fillers can address horizontal lines that tend to develop as we age and are essentially ‘etched’ throughout our life due consistent folding movements. Medical providers have also seen an increase in demand for these treatments, particularly over the last decade with the prevalent use of smartphones and devices. This is often referred to as ‘tech neck’. When dermal fillers are injected, patients can expect to see a more hydrated 

*An easy way to think of injectables for the neck: Botox targets vertical lines and dermal filler addresses horizontal lines.

Microneedling

Collagen is a crucial protein responsible for maintaining the skin’s firmness and elasticity. As we age, collagen production decreases, leading to skin laxity and fine lines and wrinkles. Microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment that stimulates the skin’s natural collagen production. The tiny, controlled injuries induced by microneedling trigger the body’s healing response, boosting collagen and elastin stimulation.  When treating the neck, microneedling can effectively reduce the visible signs of aging, improve overall texture and address laxity concerns. To achieve optimal results patients will require multiple sessions as well as may need to combine with other medical aesthetic treatments depending on their severity and goals.

BroadBand Light (BBL) 

Broadband Light (BBL), is a photofacial treatment from Sciton that gently delivers multiple wavelengths of light energy into the outer layer of the skin, promoting collagen production and stimulating cell regeneration on a molecular level. BBL’s advanced light technology is truly one of a kind as it allows for a customizable, precise treatment that ultimately targets a variety of skin concerns. When applied to the neck, BBL can target pigmentation issues, redness, age spots resulting in a more even-toned appearance.

Moxi Laser Resurfacing 

Moxi is a non-ablative fractional resurfacing laser treatment, meaning it does not damage or injure the skin layer – rather it emits energy to the skin. Compared to traditional resurfacing lasers, Moxi is used to treat visible signs of aging by gently resurfacing the skin, leaving you with more radiant-looking skin with minimal to no downtime. Safe for all skin types and tones, the Moxi laser has three energy settings, to allow for customized treatment. Moxi aids as a great treatment for patients looking to address fine lines and wrinkles, texture, and sun damage.
