Have a holiday party right around the corner and you want to wow guests with a fresh and youthful glow? Whether you just received a last minute invite to that fancy shindig, or have been in procrastination mode, we can help you. There’s still time. Since we are in count down mode, we came up with a short term list. For what to do for that high school reunion coming this spring, check back for our next blog article for more long term refreshers!
Skincare is more than a one-step process – from washing your face morning and night, to moisturizing, adding sun protection, makeup, and age-defying medical-grade products, if you want to have flawless skin, it takes a team approach. Many of Aurora Medical Spa’s skincare treatments we provide at our St. Louis area locations can be customized to treat just about any concern. We hand-selected services that complement each other for a one-two punch treatment that will have your friends wondering what you’ve done to look so good at the holiday parties this season.
We surveyed our estheticians and nurses and here’s what we came up with for you… The number one answer we got was:
Dermaplane and HydraFacial.
Dermaplaning is a technique where our licensed medical aestheticians use a small implement to manually slough off dead skin cells and vellus hair (peach fuzz). This process leaves your skin looking bright, smooth, and soft. It also allows for better penetration of skin care products. Dermaplaning is ideal for those with rough, dry skin, superficial brown spots, mild acne scars, or fine lines.
HydraFacial is new and its multi-step cleansing treatment exfoliates and extracts dead cells, and then rejuvenates the skin with a serum infused with antioxidants, peptides and hyaluronic acid. It’s mainly used to address fine lines and wrinkles, dark spots, clogged, enlarged pores and mild acne.
This combo treatment will bring about a youthful glow and can be accomplished at Aurora even just days before a big event.
Our second most popular response when surveying our aestheticians on what last minute skin fresheners would work for a super fresh look at holiday events was…
Dermaplane and Illuminze Peel.
Dermaplaning made each of the top 3 answers, so it’s apparently a great way to refresh your face with no downtime. The number 2 answer included it and a SkinMedica Illuminize peel.
Aurora Med Spa’s medical grade skin peels accelerate exfoliation of your skin resulting in renewed, healthier looking skin and a more uniform complexion right away. Illuminize Peel® is the gentlest of SkinMedica’s three peels, and is appropriate for first-time chemical peel patients, patients with mild skin imperfections or patients that are looking for brighter, more radiant skin with no downtime. You will brighten the overall appearance of your skin and show up stunning everyone this holiday season as you radiate a youthful glow when you book this combo treatment.
And the number three answer our staff gave for what they’d do just prior to attending an event:
Dermaplane with a Medical Microdermabrasion.
A medical microdermabrasion is an excellent procedure to help maximize the benefit of a regular topical regimen, keep skin feeling smooth. It can help pigment look more even and speed clearance of whiteheads. Or, maybe try out the newest service that combines a microderm with the HydraWand for a Hydrodermabrasion. This service and many others are being offered at special prices during our Winter Client Appreciation Week December 4-9. Make your appointments as soon as possible to avoid missing out on this seasonal sale.
