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!

Top 5 Reasons to Try Microdermabrasion

day2

Microdermabrasion is a resurfacing technique that uses tiny crystals to exfoliate and remove the outer layer of the skin to reveal smoother, brighter and healthier skin. Microdermabrasion is one of the most popular procedures done in the spa, and it is popular among a wide range of clients. Why, you ask? The results are fantastic and immediate. So, why haven’t you tried it yet? We’ve listed the top 5 reasons you should.

  1. No downtime, no recovery. Microdermabrasion is a painless and quick procedure. It can be done in 30-45 minutes and doesn’t require any restrictions from activities or products.
  2. It addresses many skin concerns. Acne scars? Sensitive skin? Age spots? Uneven tone? Redness? Microdermabrasion can effectively address all these skin challenges and more. The Microdermabrasion procedure exfoliates skin, removes dead skin cells, cleans pores, smoothes skin and stimulates collagen production, among other benefits.
  3. It is safe. Microdermabrasion is one of the most frequently performed procedures in the U.S. One of the best benefits is its safety. The procedure is non-invasive, non-surgical and painless.
  4. It is a great alternative to laser or chemical procedures. Microdermabrasion is easy, effective and much less harsh than other procedures. It’s a great starting point if you’re looking to restore your skin and address concerns such as tone, texture or aging.
  5. Rejuvenate your skin to look younger and healthier. Your skin is your first line of defense against toxins, environmental pollutants and stress. Microdermabrasion can help support and strengthen your skin.

The Best Facials for Your Skin Type

Day-Article2small

A facial is an amazing treatment for glowing, healthy skin and is the perfect monthly rejuvenation. We invite you to go on a self-discovery to notice your skin!

Oily

If your skin is typically shiny, greasy feeling and acne-prone, you have oily skin. We can hear your loud sigh from here! Having oily skin isn’t all bad, if you know how to correctly care for it. One bonus is you are less prone to wrinkles as you age.

Dry

Itchy, red and rough flaky skin? Your skin is dry and needs hydration and moisture! Usually dry skin stems from environmental causes like the wind, sun, etc. With regular facials and the right products, persistent dehydrated skin can feel dewy soft again. We offer facials that remove dead skin cells, soften the skin and increase circulation.

Combination

Combination skin type can be caused by weather. Usually dry in the winter, oily in the summer. It can also mean your face has oily areas and dry areas as well. This is more common than you might think, but it’s important to have a professional look at your skin. We can determine how to address both and customize your facials to meet your needs.

Sensitive

You can have any of the above skin types and also have sensitive skin. A lot of products generally irritate sensitive skin. It’s best to have a professional choose the ideal facial products.

Please call Lasala Spa Services at 520-795-3341 to speak to an Aesthetician about which facial is right for you

 

When To Start Preventative Botox

Med-Article2small

Maybe we should start this article by noting that mother is right? Your skin’s best preparation begins BEFORE we see damage. Even if you are in your 20s, it is not too early to start learning about the benefits of Botox. A good rule of thumb to follow is when you start to see lines sticking around, it might be time to visit the medi spa to embark on your skin’s preservation.

Botox is a bit of a magical potion and works when your face becomes more relaxed, which discourages wrinkle formation (and when used preventatively, even deep wrinkle development)! What is the old saying:? “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” When speaking of Botox, no other statement better describes the results that await you with regular administration.

Although most doctors don’t recommend treatment before the age of 30, some women and men are at the mercy of early-aging genes and want to get a jump on controlling their future appearance. So, an exception might be made for you if you are noting wrinkles at rest.

The age at which you begin Botox also varies according to your genetics. Lighter complected people generally start injections in their mid-to-early-40s and darker-toned people may be able to wait longer. That said, it is difficult to cast a general age range over any population. The determining factor in beginning your use of Botox depends on your skin’s condition. Try this small test; if you see crow’s feet tugging at the corners of your eyes and you’re not smiling, it might be time to come in for your first session.

Toying with attending a Botox party? Beware the risks that can occur. We recommend that you only receive your treatments in a professional office with trained aestheticians on-hand to ensure any reactions and the dosage can be controlled.

If you’re still not sure, we are always happy to schedule a consultation to discuss your questions further. Our aim is to enhance your natural beauty … but only if you feel comfortable with your beauty decisions.
We hope to hear from you soon, to discuss this intriguing and effective option to beautify your skin and turn back the hands of time.

Top 5 Unknown Benefits of a Chemical Peel

Medi-Article1

Every single one of us has different types of skin challenges. Whether you are dealing with acne, an excess of oil, red and chapped skin, or even a combination of all of the above, you might not know about a secret weapon. The chemical peel has been offered by medi spas for years and what was formerly thought to be a celeb privilege, is now very much mainstream.

These are the five benefits that can resolve some of your most stubborn skin challenges:

  1. Skin and skincare products look and work better. When a tired layer of old, dead skin is banished, it’s surprising what the healing powers of the skin can do! Not only is the skin queued up to begin to produce more collagen and other skin-loving chemicals, but the products that you use actually penetrate and you get to reap the results!
  2. Chemical peels have gone custom. When chemical peels first hit the medi spa scene, a huge concern about hyperpigmentation arose. Now, we know that chemical peels can contain different strengths of ingredients to better address dark spots, sloughing, and even localized areas of concern. You can wade into the pool and figure out what combination and potency work best for you.
  3. Introducing an acne treatment. Not only can chemical peels help to eliminate acne, but the scars resulting from bouts of acne can be softened as well. Unclog pores, extract blackheads, and make damage less visible. Another awesome bonus is that the properties in the chemical peel linger in your pores and so you receive a longer-lasting defense against skin offenders. Laser treatments are not as effective in creating lasting results, so you want to consider your options carefully.
  4. Lose those dark undereye circles for good … maybe. Well, we have to add in the disclaimer because everyone and every skin type behaves differently. But we have noticed that even the darkest undereye circles start to brighten up after even one treatment. If one won’t do it, results have been promising for multiple chemical peels.
  5. Finally, hyperpigmentation control! When the sun creates dark spots on your skin, you won’t have to look any further for the resolution than a chemical peel! As mentioned in tip 3, lasers may temporarily diminish the darkness, but a chemical peel wards off recurring spots in a far superior fashion.

If you’ve been weighing the benefits of a chemical peel, we hope this article has illuminated your options. And of course, we would love to talk to you about any remaining questions. Or, if you’re ready, give us a call 520-795-3341 and schedule your chemical peel ASAP.

Glow, glow, glow!

day2Without regular attention, dry skin can lead to cracking and bleeding. Taking hot baths/showers and using harsh cleansers exacerbate dry skin.

Keep skin looking youthful and smooth by reducing (and eliminating) chapped and itchy skin with these suggestions:

Washing your skin with lukewarm water with the proper cleanser helps to avoid stripping essential oils from your skin that it needs to stay soft and supple.  *Visit us for PCA Skincare

Moisturizing immediately after your shower or bath (while your skin is still damp) helps to seal that dampness into your skin.

Choosing the correct moisturizer will soothe your dry, itchy skin while helping it to retain more moisture. *Speak to our Estheticians for a thorough skin analysis.

Protecting your skin from the elements will help keep your skin soft and smooth while preventing chapping and flaking.

Drinking more water and eating foods with high water content provides your skin with much-needed hydration from the inside out.

Exfoliating your face and body regularly helps to slough off dead skin cells so moisture can penetrate the epidermis more effectively. *Enjoy our facials and medical grade chemical peels to exfoliate

Using an effective sunscreen with a high SPF this time of year is important due to the sun’s rays being just as harsh as it is during the summer months. *protect yourself all year long with our PCA and Coola Suncare

“I feel good now, I knew that I would.”

 As if you didn’t know, facial treatments offer soothing relaxation. You’ll feel healthy and radiate confidence! There are numerous other benefits of facial treatments.

Start with increased circulation and blood flow. Poor circulation can lead to numerous health problems, including cardiovascular disease.

Next, the skin obviously isn’t ignored. Creams, aromatherapy and oils moisturize the skin; and they smell good!

Then, there’s always-important peace of mind and contentment. Who doesn’t want less mental stress or anxiety?

Those benefits are right off the top of the list.

Digging a little deeper (literally, in some cases), facial treatments mean less acne scarring, visible wrinkle reduction, even skin tone and unclogged pores.

Dark spots and sun-damaged areas are targeted and dull skin is transformed, leaving a glowing result. Any advanced signs of aging are set back to a more youthful state.

Facial benefits also calm and soothe sensitive skin, provide therapy for pre-cancerous conditions, rejuvenate, are a more-effective daily care and provide a fresh and healthy glow.

Day Spa Equals Happiness

day1

As we get older, we obviously don’t literally live by, “If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands.”

With it being back to school time, it’s extra important to share and create happy memories with family and friends before life gets a little busier.

You’ve heard the saying, “You use more muscles to frown than to smile.” Technically, that’s not true.

Scientific studies show a small smile uses about 10 muscles vs. a small frown requires roughly six muscles. The numbers are closer with normal smiles (12 muscles) vs. normal frowns (11 muscles). But frowns require more effort because we generally don’t (and should not try to) use those muscles frequently.

Thus, it’s easier to smile! We don’t look so miserable either. What can make us happier or get us smiling?

 

  1. The Spa Experience. Whether it’s one of our signature facials, this month is a great time to reserve some special outings with those close to you. A facial is very relaxing. A pedicure will help keep your toenails healthy and you can have fun playing footsies. Reserving an outing with family and friends promotes healthy conversations and extra laughs, which means more smiles!
  2. Exercise Your Body. Try a 30-minute walk or anything that gets you moving. Make it something you enjoy.
  3. Exercise Your Brain. Read a book, play chess or a board game, or solve crosswords.
  4. Get Enough Sleep. Try to get 8 hours each night. Fit in a nap. Be smart.
  5. Eat Right. A healthy and balanced diet is crucial. Focus on variety, portions and consumption to help maintain weight.
  6. Drink Right. Scale back or eliminate caffeine to reduce weight. Limit alcohol. Drink water. Flavor it if necessary.
  7. Laugh More. Listen to a comedy show, exchange jokes with your friends or act silly.

 

Make visiting the spa part of your lifestyle! Reduce your stress and be happy!!
