4 Benefits Of Microneedling (And Why It Should Be Your Next Purchase)

MediArticle1

What is microneedling — this all-the-rage self-care necessity — anyway? Microneedling uses a pen with very small needles that creates pinpricks (or incisions) in the epidermis (top) layer of your skin. The goal is to stimulate the healing process and create new collagen and elastin.

We’ve outlined the top four benefits of microneedling (of course, there are more), in the list below:

  1. Improved Skin Texture
    Self-confidence is one of the few things that we feel so passionately about. Improving the texture and overall appearance of your skin is bound to boost your confidence. Microneedling’s tiny pinpricks stimulate the formation of new collagen. This is what boosts skin texture and creates that smooth, gorgeous radiance. (Bonus: you will see the change in your skin almost immediately following your visit). And, if you have scarring, especially from acne, microneedling is the solution! When your skin scars, it forms strong fibrous tissue under the surface, which is why it is so hard to treat. Microneedling breaks up and releases this tissue to reveal less distinct scars and smoother skin!
  2. Minimizes Pores And Reduces Blackheads
    Blackhead sufferers everywhere, rejoice! Microneedling cleans up your pores and clears out a majority of blackheads. It’s also a great way to see a reduction in your pores. The effects are temporary, though, and usually last for 3-4 weeks before pore size begins to return to normal. However, we do recommend several products, including a vitamin E cream that will promote smaller pores and reduce blackheads over time.
  3. Reduce Fine Lines And Wrinkles
    Microneedling is a great option for reducing the signs of aging, and it improves your skin’s texture in the same way it works to improve acne scars. The tiny pinpricks send the skin the message that healing is necessary as it forces your body to repair and heal through the formation of collagen and elastin. This is essential for reducing fine lines and wrinkles, as well as tightening your skin. You will look and feel years younger!
  4. Even Skin Tone And Reduce Hyperpigmentation
    Blotchy and uneven skin, be gone! The uneven production of melanin (which is responsible for your skin color) is usually the culprit of skin tone issues. Microneedling will improve the slight color changes in your skin tone caused by trauma including acne, blackheads and inflammation.

Need more reasons to fall back in love with your skin? Microneedling is the answer to many skin issues, and we are happy to meet with you for a consultation to discuss its benefits. Look younger and enjoy smooth, brilliant skin with microneedling. You deserve this!

Look Your Best For The Holiday Social Scene

The holidays are here and with them come the parties, dances, family gatherings, and charitable events. Are you ready for all the excitement? We all want to look fabulous for these festive occasions. Don’t wait until the last minute to prepare. Plan your look ahead of time for you and your significant other! Check out these great ideas to help you celebrate in style!

Ladies, obtaining the perfect outfit is your first priority. First, make a mental note of all the events you will attend. Are you celebrating with co-workers, friends or both? Keep in mind, your dress at an office party should definitely be more conservative than that of a party with friends and family.

The popular little black or red dress are always a safe bet. You can accessorize to fit the occasion! Dress it up with sexy heels, earrings, a necklace, etc., or add a pop of color with a silky, red scarf, red lips and red nails. Or, downplay it a bit for that business party with modest heels and jewelry, and neutral makeup and nail tones. It depends on the statement you want to make.

And don’t forget about the special man in your life. Make sure you select the perfect tie for him that matches your dress. A traditional black suit and tie are always in style!

Don’t forget the most important part of your pre-party plan. Schedule your spa visits and hair appointments in advance so you can arrive to your social events looking refreshed and vibrant. Reserve your chemical facial peel to eliminate dry, rough skin and top it off with a hydrating mask for soft, supple skin. You won’t believe how beautiful your makeup will look once applied after these treatments! We still have appointments available, book now! 520-795-3341 and ask for Holiday Specials

Once you have found the dress, you can plan your makeup. Stop by the spa for holiday makeup tips and check out the latest colors. Remember, don’t overdo it. We want a healthy look … not a fake one.

You’ve got the dress, accessories and makeup in place. All that’s left is the perfect hair design to complete your look. Start thinking about your hairstyle a few weeks ahead of time so you don’t have to stress about it the day of the event. Make your appointment with your hairstylist way in advance!

Want to lose a few inches before you slip into that dress? A body wrap is the perfect solution. Reduce cellulite and lose inches quickly and safely with a signature body wrap. You’ll feel so confident when you head out to spend time with friends, family and co-workers!

Remember, less is more. Keep it simple, yet classy. That’s a guaranteed winner every time.

Easy Ways To Give Back This Holiday Season

DayArticle1

It’s tempting to fall into a routine around the holidays and focus on your own family and friends – which is wonderful! But remember that not everyone experiences such joy and contentment during the holidays. Fill your heart and those you’re giving to by donating.

One of the best parts of life is the little, nameless, unremembered acts of kindness and love that affect others in ways the giver may never know. Here’s a list of pay-it-forwards we like to share with others this time of year.

  1. Serve A Holiday Meal

Many shelters serve holiday meals to hundreds and thousands of people in many communities across the country. Volunteer a few hours to help serve. In return, you’ll meet some amazing people. We sure have over the years!

  1. Donate Your Change

The coins you’ve been collecting in the bottom of your purse, in the cupholder of your car and in your change jar can go to a good cause! Cash the coins at the bank and donate the proceeds to a local shelter or food bank.

  1. Share The Furry Love

Share your sweet, loving fur baby with a local senior living community or senior center. This is sure to bring smiles to all their faces, including yours!

  1. Give Back To Those Closest to You

It’s wonderful to give back to strangers in need, but think of your own family and friends. Is anyone struggling? Could someone you know use a night off? A hot meal? Or an ear for venting? Sometimes the small gestures matter the most.

  1. Make Care Packages For The Homeless

These can be simple with just a few essentials and a lot of love. The homeless need basic needs met, so consider including a pair of socks, a couple of snacks, a water bottle, wet wipes and a handwritten note. You can always include more if you choose!

  1. Adopt A Family

This is such a fun way to give back during the holidays and it’s the perfect option if you have kids who want to get involved. Shop for and wrap gifts for a family in need this holiday season. You usually can get connected to families through local organizations.

  1. Pay It Forward

Done throughout the year in big and small capacities, paying it forward is taking care of the people in your community through unexpected kindnesses. Have you been the lucky one in the coffee shop drive-thru? Have you paid for someone’s meal at a restaurant? Or an unsuspecting driver at the pump? Give a stressed-out stranger a spa gift card. This is a blast to play out with the kids, too!

We hope you’ll try a few of these this holiday season, or share with us what you do to give back during the holidays!
