Hello, and welcome to our blog here at Regena Spa! 😃
With lots of festivities coming up you may be thinking of how to look your best and have beautiful, radiant skin just in time for the holidays. There are options available and I am here to tell you there is hope!
First, lets talk about hydration. That's right H2O! It may not feel as hot out finally, however, it is still very important to quench your thirst, especially when it comes to your skin. Water is essential to maintain your optimum skin moisture and deliver essential nutrients to the skin cells. Approximately 50% to 70% of our body mass is made up of water, including skin, tissues, cells and organs. Water replenishes the skin tissue and increases its elasticity. This helps delay the appearance of signs of aging like wrinkles and fine lines. Drinking enough water combats skin disorders like psoriasis, wrinkles and eczema. It also increases the metabolic rate and improves the digestive system to flush out toxins from the body. This, in turn, gives you healthy and glowing skin. So, drink up with plenty of water, your skin and body will thank you!
Now let's talk about rejuvenating your skin with our advanced treatment options by Venus Versa™.
Venus Versa™ provides a non-surgical solution for skin resurfacing. It works using small pins that safely deliver energy through the skin's surface. This creates tiny wounds, which the body then works to heal naturally. This process is what repairs signs of damage seen on the surface of the skin. The most common signs of skin damage includes: scars from injury, acne, or other skin conditions, visible pores, stretch marks, deep wrinkles, and abnormal skin texture.
Wondering who the ideal candidate for this awesome procedure would be? Anyone showing signs of skin damage or has imperfections that effect the texture of their skin! This treatment can be done on ALL skin tones! However, for safety reasons, you may not be able to get this treatment if you have a contraindication. This will get discussed at your complimentary consultation. I will tell you first hand, this procedure is more comfortable than most traditional skin resurfacing treatments. Not only do you notice smoother, healthier skin, but you will have low downtime! Meaning, you will be able to return to your daily activities immediately after treatment and resume regular skin care routine after 24 hours.
Another amazing skin resurfacing treatment that will give your skin a beautiful glow is microneedling. I know, for those of you that perhaps have never heard of this treatment before, it might sound quite scary. It is actually comfortable, with numbing cream applied of course! It is fairly quick and non-invasive. Here in our spa we do automated microneedling, which then the skin’s repair process results in improvement of the appearance of softer wrinkles and skin. We use the Eclipse MicroPen® (has 12 micro-points) and it is the most advanced medical-grade automated microneedling device on the market! If you want to enhance this procedure, you can add PRP to it which would be like adding syrup to pancakes or icing to your cake. It makes it that much better! So what is PRP? It is Platelet Rich Plasma using your own blood. This treatment is effective because it utilizes your own natural platelets found in your blood to stimulate new cell growth, helping improve your complexion, skin texture, and restore lost facial volume. With the PRP on your skin, the gliding of the pen drives the platelets into your skin to rejuvenate and reinvigorate cellular turnover. Platelets have the unique ability to rev up collagen and elastin production.
Ultimately, you will be contemplating what procedure may be best for you, but it comes down to what best fits your personal goal. Although at the end of either treatment, your skin will be bright red and may feel hot or warm for about 24 hours, the downtime is very short and well worth it! After the healing and exfoliating has taken place, you will notice an immediate “glow” to your skin. You may continue to have visible changes to your skin, developing over the course of several days and weeks and your results can continue to improve up to 6 months! I mean how amazing is that? I like to think it's well worth investing a day or maybe a few to feel better about my complexion and look my best. After all, who doesn't want to revive their "glow" and shine bright for the most wonderful time of the year!
