How to get your skin holiday-ready

Research shows that the look of your skin and your level of self-confidence are connected, and most of us know how that confidence is tested during the holidays with all the pictures to take and parties to attend. Healthy, rejuvenated skin can give you the boost in confidence you need to get you through the season and dazzle your family and friends. Because we offer some simple, minimally invasive procedures, you're able to get a gorgeous holiday glow with little recovery time.


If you're looking for a quick treatment that will reduce the look of fine lines, hyperpigmentation, acne and superficial scars, microdermabrasion could be right for you. This treatment uses a machine to exfoliate the layer of dry, dead skin cells on your face. It then uses fine crystals to polish the skin. which will give you a youthful, healthy glow.

Having these procedures done in a professional environment… guarantees a more sterile and safe experience.

While this treatment could be done at home, experts recommend going to see a professional in-office. The Huffington Post wrote that these in-office treatments use larger motors with more power, allowing them to penetrate deeper into the skin than what you'd get from a drugstore product. Having these procedures done in a professional environment, especially in a facility like ours with a physician on-site, guarantees a more sterile and safe experience.

Exfoliating peel

While there are different kinds of exfoliating peels, they all basically perform the same task of removing dead cells from your skin and giving you a fresh complexion for the new year. The first is a glycolic peel, which is a basic procedure that removes that outer layer of dead skin and facilitates the production of collagen. This treatment will smooth and hydrate your face. Another option is the Illuminize Peel, which uses a new generation of alpha hydroxyl acids (AHAs), which is a combination of five AHAs, including salicylic acid, that revives the skin with minimal irritation.

For those who already use exfoliating products at home in their regular skin care regimen, however, a procedure like the vitalize peel could be the right choice for you. This peel uses lactic and salicylic acids, which drastically improve your skin texture and reduces the appearance of lines. By increasing collagen production, this treatment helps fade hyperpigmentation and reduces  acne and scarring, while rejuvenating the skin.

For even more results, you can try the VI Peel, which is suitable for all skin types with little pain or recovery time. Those who undergo this treatment will see a dramatic results in skin glow and radiance, tighter, more youthful skin as well as an improvement in acne conditions and scars, clarity, color and skin texture.
