Before and After: How the HydraFacial Saved My Skin

January 18, 2017

If you haven’t experienced a HydraFacial yet, what are you waiting for? It’s nothing short of amazing. And if you’ve ever heard one of your friends singing its praises, I promise you — that friend is not exaggerating. In fact, I’m about to join in the chorus and share a few nuggets, including a before-and-after shot, from my most recent HydraFacial treatment.

My skin type: Combination Dry

Current state of skin: Dry and red irritation; oily patches (mostly cheek area), clogged pores, and a hormonal breakout around the jawline. Oof. General dullness. I’ve been traveling more than usual and the stress — and indulgence — of the holidays certainly caught up to my skin. Between major climate changes (cold, frigid Boston air vs. Austin’s warmer temps) and over 30 hours of flight time (Austin > Japan > Shanghai > Austin > Boston > Austin) logged, let’s just say my skin wasn’t looking its best.

Goals for HydraFacial: I know not everything can be “cured” in one session, but I wanted to leave with clear pores and lots of hydration. My skin was screaming for it.

Results Post-HydraFacial: Glowy-ness! My skin feels rejuvenated and undeniably clean. It’s the most hydrated version of itself right now and I couldn’t be more pleased. The jawline breakouts, while still visible to me, have been stopped in their tracks. Finally, the sallow tone of my skin is gone. Success!

See my before-and-after shots…

The 411 on CosMedix Peels

September 16, 2016

mh-2644

Acne, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and discoloration have met their match with our CosMedix corrective peels. Peels work by gently removing the top damaged or dry layer of the epidermis to reveal smooth, youthful renewed skin. At milk + honey, we offer two types of peels: Same-Day and Advanced Peels. While both options reveal beautiful results, our Advanced Peels require two weeks of skin prep, given the potent combination of rejuvenating acids and enzymes utilized.

To get you ready for our Spring Peel Party — 50% off all peels, all day long! — here’s the 411 on every peel we offer. Find out which peel does what and how they can help you achieve your specific skincare goals. To reserve your spot for our bi-annual event on Wednesday, April 5, call 512.236.1115, 713.231.0250, or email reservations@milkandhoneyspa.com.

*A non-refundable deposit of $30 is required.

What Is a HydraFacial MD®?

November 5, 2015

Screen Shot 2015-11-05 at 1.53.27 PM

We’re excited to announce that we now offer the HydraFacial MD® treatment!

What is a HydraFacial MD®?

HydraFacial MD® is an invigorating treatment that delivers long-term
 skin health and can be tailored to meet the specific needs of all skin types. It offers instant, noticeable results with no downtime or irritation.

What are the benefits of getting a HydrFacial MD®?

The HydraFacial MD® resurfacing procedure thoroughly cares for your skin, providing cleansing, exfoliation, extractions, and hydration, including Vortex-Fusion® of antioxidants, peptides, and hyaluronic acid. It also removes dead skin cells and extracts impurities while simultaneously bathing the new skin with cleansing, hydrating and moisturizing serums. The treatment is soothing, refreshing, non-irritating, non-invasive, non-surgical, and immediately effective.

How often should I get a HydraFacial MD®?

One treatment per month is recommended for improving the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, oily and congested skin. 

Is this available at all of your locations?

At the moment, we only offer the HydraFacial MD® treatment at our 2nd Street District, Hill Country Galleria, and River Oaks spas. To schedule your appointment, please call 512.236.1115 or email reservations@milkandhoneyspa.com.

Does it hurt?

Absolutely not. This is the most pain-free facial you will ever receive. Extractions are automatic and painless with the use of vortex technology.

Can anyone get a HydraFacial MD®?

The HydraFacial MD® treatment is designed for all skin types. Even the most sensitive skin easily tolerates the HydraFacial MD® treatment. The esthetician may choose specific treatment serums and/or customize the treatment for your unique skin conditions and needs. Consult the esthetician for a skin evaluation and sensitivity test.

Have a question we haven’t answered? Call us at 512.236.1115 and we’d be happy to help in any way possible.

Baby, It’s Cold Outside – How’s Your Skin Doing?

November 13, 2014

{Guest post by one of milk + honey’s expert estheticians, Bella G.}

One of the most frequent questions I receive is “how often should I get a facial?”… The thing is — there’s no standard answer. Instead, here are the factors and questions I ask to frame a response and “plan of action” for the best type of skincare for you.

What type of skin do you have?
– Someone with active, chronic acne might need to initially come more often (sometimes as much as every week in the beginning), so the esthetician can perform extractions to help stop the breakout cycle and closely monitor how the skin is doing on the prescribed at-home skincare.
– Mature skin benefits from monthly facials to stimulate circulation and remove dead skin cells that dull the complexion.
– Normal and sensitive skin types can go for longer periods, but I think all skin types should come in at least quarterly.

What’s your budget?
– I’d rather see you once a year than not at all. This gives us a chance to talk about your skin. I can answer any questions you have and can set you up with an at-home skincare regimen that meets the needs of your face and wallet.
– Choosing to invest in your skin this year? Come every month. Then we can add peels, make sure that you are on some form of vitamin A as well as an epidermal growth factor, and regularly apply micro-currents to the skin to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin.

Is there an issue you want to focus on?
– Hyper-pigmentation can be radically reduced with a series of peels spaced two to three weeks apart.
– Acne can benefit from regular extractions and an occasional peel to help purge any deep congestion.
– Just want to relax? There is something about having another person’s hands on your face, head, neck and shoulders that creates a deep state of calm. Facials are actually a great stress reliever!

I will say that the ideal is that I get to see you every month. Your outermost layer of skin (the stratum corneum) renews itself approximately every 28 days. Getting a monthly facial means that you can enjoy having a refreshed appearance immediately and better penetration of any products you are using at home. Over time, you get the benefits of having your new cells replicated by the now healthier treated cells, and all your products will work faster and more effectively. There is definitely a cumulative effect to having regular facials.

– Increases blood circulation allowing for optimal skin health.
– Decreases puffiness, sallow complexion, and detoxifies by stimulating the lymphatic system.
– Facial massage smooths fine lines and promotes collagen production.
– Cleanses pores on a deeper level, preventing the stretching and widening of pores that can happen overtime with unchecked accumulation of oil and debris.
– Helps even tone and lighten dark spots.
– Slows down the aging process.

You can’t underestimate the value of taking a little time out for yourself every so often. Energy follows thought, and what we choose to focus on can — and does — bring about real change.
