After a beauty treatment, real life will naturally wear and tear the results you receive from your appointment. Whether it’s getting your hair dyed, getting your nails done, waxing your eyebrows, or getting a skincare treatment, each of these treatments require further maintenance in order to prolong your results.
Skincare Products That Can Prolong Your Treatment’s Results
September 15th, 2022
We get it beauty is pain, but there are always products that can help you maintain and prolong the look of your treatments.
At Dr. Boulos Medical Spa, we carry innovative and high-end skincare products to ensure that your results last! We’ve listed our favourite skincare products based on your treatment.
What is a Chemical Peel
Chemical Peels are used to help exfoliate the skin’s surface, improve the skin’s texture, diminish the appearance of blemishes, and enhance the skin’s radiance. There are different types of chemical peels based on the depth of the treatment. The depths range from superficial, medium, or deep.
The chemical peel is made from different acids based on what skin concerns you are targeting. Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) are used to treat fine lines, wrinkles, dullness, and uneven texture. Beta-Hydroxy Acids (BHAs) treatments reduce blemishes, large pores, and uneven texture. Lastly, Trichloroacetic acid (TCAs) are used for signs of aging and discolouration from sun damage, acne, or hormones.
Since chemical peels use acids to create a controlled injury to the dermis, after the treatment, it is crucial to protect your skin from the sun and UV rays by using sunscreen with a high SPF like Skinceuticals Physical Fusion UV Defense SPF 50. This tinted sunscreen is made with Zinc Oxide to protect your skin against UVA/UVB rays while blending to match your skin tone, which is why we highly suggest this sunscreen after your Chemical Peel treatment.
What is Microdermabrasion?
To help improve the skin’s appearance, microdermabrasion is a procedure that sands/exfoliates the skin with a crystal and diamond tip. During the microdermabrasion treatment, a stream of exfoliating crystals made from (aluminum or magnesium oxide) is placed on the skin while being vacuumed off simultaneously.
This procedure is pain-free and enhances the skin’s overall look and glow. As a result of this procedure, your skin will appear to have a reduction in fine lines, skin discolouration, enlarged pores, and acne scars.
After a microdermabrasion treatment, you may experience side effects including a pink or red complexion, pain similar to a sun burn, skin tightness, and a bruised/sensitive sensation on your skin. Firstly, we suggest using a moisturizer like Vivier Daily Moisturizing Cream SPF 15 for 4-6 days consistently after the treatment to prevent excessive peeling. This moisturizer contains Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Hyaluronic Acid, and Rosemary Extract to guarantee that your skin is supple and soft. Then, to ensure the best results, stay away from the sun for at least a week. If you need to go outside while it’s sunny outside, protect your skin with Vivier Sunscreen Lotion SPF 30.
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a procedure that rejuvenates the skin by using a needling device that creates micro-injuries to the skin. There are multiple ways in which microneedling is administered. It is administered either through a dermal roller with microneedles, a dermal stamp, and a mechanical microneedling pen. But, at Dr. Boulos Medical Spa, it is administered using INFINI Radio frequency to treat the skin from the outside in.
These needles stimulate the skin by creating empty space in the dermis. Then, your skin will take the empty space as a signal to produce collagen and elastin to fill the space.
Through gold-plated microneedles, INFINI delivers energy to the dermis to create youthful and refreshed skin. This procedure has gained popularity because of its ability to improve skin texture and firmness and enhance the look of your skin by reducing the appearance of scars, pores, and stretch marks.
Complement your microneedling treatment by using Skinceuticals C E Ferulic, this Vitamin C serum ensures your skin stays supple and youthful looking by providing you environmental protection while improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Your skin will experience anti-aging benefits by preventing the loss of firmness and brightening your skin’s complexion.
