Everyone should take time to treat themselves. We all need it! It makes us feel good. It’s a form of self care. When you pamper yourself you won’t only feel good but look good too. Treating yourself might mean something different for everyone. It could be buying a new outfit, getting your hair done, or buying your favorite Starbucks coffee.
At Images Med Spa in Wheaton our favorite way to pamper ourselves is getting a treatment that will have our skin glowing! Read on as we tell you all about our go-to treatments and skincare to treat yourself with this month.
First off if you’re obsessed with skincare like us you may already be using a retinol. But if you’re not this is one of the best skincare hacks to address signs of age and skin texture. Retinol’s main ingredient is vitamin A and it works on the surface of the skin to regulate cell turnover. It improves the productions of collagen and elastin which keeps the skin looking young. The strength of retinol will also treat acne, fine lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation. While it’s still important that you pick the right retinol to get the job done. We highly recommend looking into medical-grade products because they contain the purest of ingredients and are tested by dermatologists. While medical-grade skincare products can only be prescribed by a skin expert you should have one of our estheticians check out your skin and set you up with the right product.
Microneedling + PRP
Microneedling can treat just about any skin concern. At Images Med Spa in Wheaton, this has become one of our most popular skin treatments because it improves age spots, wrinkles, scarring, and many types of hyperpigmentation. But when you combine microneedling and PRP this is the MVP team of skin treatments. You might be familiar with this skin treatment through celebrity Kim Kardashian. As soon as she posted her “Vampire Facial” treatment to Instagram this treatment became a fan favorite for everyone. Oftentimes our clients ask if this treatment is painful? The answer is no. It might be a bit uncomfortable for some but your provider can numb your face if you are worried about any discomfort. The microneedling will last up to 30mins long which is short and can fit into anyone’s busy schedule. After the microneedling part of the session is done our provider will draw blood which is the key component to enhancing the whole treatment. The blood is then put into a centrifuge and this separates PRP from other parts of the blood. PRP is then massaged into the treated areas of the face. The microneedling essentially works as the wounding part of the treatment since little micro punctures were treated to the skin. The PRP will penetrate the skin and collagen will repair the skin’s surface.
At Images Med Spa in Wheaton, botox is one of our top treatments. Nobody really wants to admit they’re getting botox. But if you’ve noticed a significant improvement in one of your closest friend’s skin the answer is without a doubt botox! Don’t believe anyone that says there is magical retinol to completely remove those wrinkles. Because if that was the case we would all be using it! So this brings us to the question? How freaking good do you want to look and feel this spring? Botox is an FDA approved treatment that so many people are getting regularly. The best part about Botox is that we can get you in and out in no time. There is no need to recover so you can get back to your regular life minus holding off on your workout till the next day. So no need to reschedule your plans and within just 3-7 days you can show off your newly smooth skin. Botox can last up to 6 months but this depends on the person. Although other factors come into play depending on your age and how deep the wrinkles are this might require more maintenance. Another benefit of botox is that it truly is a preventative measure that you’re taking. We get so many questions on this one but getting botox can prevent new wrinkles from forming. The reason is that Botox treats the muscle under the skin and blocks the body from reacting and contracting these face muscles. Since botox stops the contraction it is preventing any future wrinkles from contracting and stopping those present wrinkles from deepening.
Vitamin C For Glowing Skin
Our goal year around is always for a beautiful glowing complexion. While this might seem completely unrealistic, it’s not. With the right products and routine this is definitely possible. One of the best products to add-in for glowing skin and preventing sun damage is a Vitamin C Serum. Vitamin c is the perfect antioxidant to nourish and hydrate the skin during warm weather. Images Skincare “Vital C Anti-Aging Serum” is the MVP of medical-grade serums out there. We love how refreshing it feels on the skin after immediately applying. Sun exposure is one of the biggest factors when it comes to signs of age. The Vital-C serum can prevent signs of age and it overall evens out the complexion of the skin. If you’re ready to brighten up the skin this product is the secret weapon.
