Imagine that you’ve just bought a brand new, shiny car. It’s beautiful, and you can’t wait to take it out and show off. As you’re driving around town, the car kicks up a bit of dirt, dulling the shine. Then it rains, and the car’s shine is dulled even further. Little scratches from the normal wear and tear of daily life start to nick the paint. By the end of the first month, your “new” car just isn’t looking quite as pristine as it did when you first drove
it off the lot — but that’s ok, it still looks great.
Now imagine the car a year later… then two years later. That dirt, those scratches, the daily wear and tear can all really build up.
How can you keep your car looking as great as it did the day you first bought it?
By going in for monthly maintenance, of course!
The same is true for your complexion. Immediately following a cosmetic procedure, your complexion is going to be gorgeous — your glow will be visible to everyone around you. But as time passes, the wear and tear of daily life starts to build up. It could be redness from sun damage, maybe a little bit of acne, or you might even see a wrinkle or two that weren’t there before. At first, it’s no big deal, it’s barely noticeable. But that kind of skin damage can build up over many months, prematurely aging your skin and rendering all of the money you invested into spa treatments moot.
What’s the solution?
By dropping into our medical spa once a month, you can maintain your beautiful skin and help keep the wear and tear of daily life to an absolute minimum. And one good way to go about this healthy skin maintenance is with a monthly microdermabrasion treatment.
Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive facial treatment, very popular at our medical spa. Our practitioners use the latest diamond-tip technology to very gently remove the surface layer of your skin to get rid of all the dead cells and debris that have built up, revealing the pristine and healthy skin underneath. Once the surface level of the skin is removed, your body’s healing abilities start to generate new, healthy skin cells. With this treatment, we can remove any impurities, fix an uneven skin tone, and even reduce the appearance of wrinkles!
While some cosmetic procedures can be a bit time-consuming and uncomfortable, microdermabrasion is both quick and painless. It feels a bit like sandpaper against your skin. After the treatment, we moisturize your face to help replace any moisture may have been lost with the dead cells, and to calm any irritation of the skin.
To begin your monthly maintenance program, we would recommend an initial series of microdermabrasion treatments over the course of a few weeks to months depending on your skin. Once this series is complete, a single reatment at intervals ranging from one to 3 months should be enough to maintain the improvement in skin tone and pore size, and to keep wrinkles and other issues at bay.
If you’d like to put your best face forward with microdermabrasion and other skincare treatments that we offer at our medical spa, just visit our website at www.azulbeauty.com or give us a call at (239) 415-7576. As the sun and wind continue to take their daily toll on your skin’s natural healthy glow, and especially as we’ll be heading into the dryer conditions of the fall and winter months soon, now is a great time to get started on your monthly maintenance!
