Attending to your skin is an important part of your self-care routine year-round. Our skin works hard on our behalf and definitely deserves some love in return! The facial skin, in particular, tends to take the brunt of the exposure to the elements and over time, fine lines and wrinkles combined with lowered elastin levels can leave skin feeling papery and worn.

This spring, consider giving your skin a hydrating boost it deserves! At the Skin & Vein Center, our dedicated team is here to help patients find just the right facial treatments to give them that springtime glow they’ve been looking forward to. While we have a long list of services and options waiting to be explored, the following are just a few of our many fan-favorite services to consider when the weather turns warmer.

Chemical Facial Peel

The excessively dry air and time spent indoors during the winter months can lead to our skin becoming dull in large part due to a buildup of dead skin cells at the surface. When you’re looking to let go of the old and embrace a new, fresh look this spring, opting for a chemical facial peel may be the way to go.

This procedure is popular for those looking to refresh and rejuvenate their skin in a short amount of time. Once you arrive at the clinic, a pre-treatment serum is applied to the skin before a chemical solution is applied to the treatment area. Depending on the strength of the peel, the process lasts anywhere from one minute to 12 minutes total.

When the peel is complete, water is applied to neutralize the chemical effects and serum or cream is added to help the skin rejuvenate quickly. Chemical facial peels remove dead skin cells and promote the growth of new cells, giving recipients a healthy glow with a reduced appearance of wrinkles and fine lines as well.

PRP Therapy

Our bodies often show us the way to regaining our youthful glow. At Skin and Vein, patients looking to revitalize their springtime skin will find that PRP therapy is a great option that uses the body’s natural healing functions to bring their skin back to life.

Patients that elect PRP therapy solutions will begin by having their blood drawn. The sample is placed in a centrifuge and the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is separated out from red blood cells. These PRP growth factors are then reinjected into the specified treatment site using very small needles.

Ultimately, the small puncture wounds encourage the body’s natural healing reaction which includes increased production of collagen and elastin. Because a patient’s own blood is used, there’s no risk of an allergic reaction. Many patients enjoy results that reduce the appearance of fine lines, brighten the skin’s overall tone and leave them looking more refreshed than ever.

HydraFacial

Spring is a season of regrowth and renewal. There’s no reason not to treat your skin to that same concept! At Skin & Vein, our team is proud to offer HydraFacial for patients looking to achieve fresh, clear-looking skin without the harsh side effects that are sometimes associated with options like chemical peels.

HydraFacial tends to be a gentler approach to facial skin rejuvenation that utilizes hydration, fusion, and extraction techniques over the course of a 30-minute appointment. After surface-level dead skin cells are removed using a simple hand-held device, the attending physician moves a suction nozzle over the skin to remove blackheads and oily buildup that live just beneath the surface. The final step is the application of a restorative serum that’s added to boost collagen production over time.

Fillers

The fine lines and wrinkles that appear around the lips can leave people feeling less than their best. This spring, consider boosting your youthful look by turning to filler to plump your lips to the desired fullness. Fillers are a simple, yet long-lasting option for those looking to increase the volume of their pout with options to customize the results.

At Skin & Vein, we’re proud to offer patients both the Juvederm and Ravanesse Versa collection of fillers to meet their preferences. Those who choose fillers will enjoy an application of an anesthetic cream to the treatment site before injections are placed. Once your lips have reached the desired fullness, you can expect to enjoy the results for anywhere from 6months to a year!
