At Wisconsin Vein Center & MediSpa, we work with clients of all ages. In this blog post, we’d like to take some time to address a specific group: millennials. Did you know the average age of millennials is 27? If you haven’t already, it’s about time you start to think about your skin – more specifically, how you take care of it.
Thankfully the millennial generation has, for the most part, grasped the idea that the sun is bad for your skin. You’re using sunscreen regularly, which is great! But, there are other preventative treatments and techniques you may want to consider that will help maintain the beautiful complexion and youthful glow you have right now. There are several things which can be done right in a medical spa like ours. Here, you don’t need to feel like you’re visiting a plastic surgeon for dramatic procedures. Instead, we can provide you with a number of treatments with rapid recovery or no downtime that will help keep your skin looking great as you age.
The first treatment we suggest is microneedling. You’ve likely seen variations of this technique, like the “vampire facial” Kim Kardashian had done on her TV show. This unique treatment utilizes a series of very small needles to barely penetrate the skin. This is done to induce and enhance the growth of collage, which is the structural component your skin needs to prevent wrinkles. After the treatment, we apply PRP – or platelet rich plasma, from your own blood – to your skin. This helps get youthful stem cells and growth factors back, deeper into your skin.
Another treatment option is chemical peels. These treatments offer wonderful exfoliation benefits and help to achieve a youthful, dewy look and maintain your beautiful complexion. These types of treatments can be performed once a month and have fantastic benefits for the long term.
When it comes to at-home products, vitamin A is an essential skincare ingredient to preventing lines and wrinkles. Better known as retinol products, these products can keep your skin from developing deep wrinkles with regular use – especially if you start using them earlier. The sooner you get used to using a retinol product, the better results you’ll see over time.
There are a lot of things we can do to help keep your skin looking fresh and young, and many other things you can do yourself! If you’d like to learn more about treatments and products, call 262-236-5179 or visit us in Pewaukee to schedule a consultation. We’d be happy to help you determine the best regimen!
