When summer hits in Wisconsin, Wisconsinites take full advantage. From cookouts, going up north, festivals, going out on your boat, we know you will be exposing your skin to the sun. Typically, our lasers go silent- especially AFT- in the summer. A good majority of our patients receive AFT starting in the fall months to remove the sun damage they may have acquired during the summer fun. But what if I told you there are other treatments you can be doing in the summer to maintain that amazing skin you have worked so hard for?
- Home Care Regimen
Most patients wonder the best thing you can do for your skin is. The answer is your home care regimen. If you are doing the work at home, you will see the results. We have some all-star treatment products here that we highly recommend to our patients. Here are a few:
Alastin Skin Nectar– A product that improves the overall health of your skin by cleaning your extracellular matrix of debris (degenerated collagen and elastin). We recommend this product for pre and post procedure as it aides in prepping your skin and healing your skin.
Alastin Restorative Complex– This product improves thinning skin, fine lines and wrinkles. It contains potent antioxidants and peptides to even the skin tone and texture.
Revision Retinol Complete 1.0– Increases cellular turnover, improves hyperpigmentation, stimulates collagen and is encapsulated in a porus microsphere (means it is time-released so you will not experience irritations).
Revision Vitamin C 30% Lotion– contains THD Ascorbate which is the new gold standard of topical Vitamin C and is a powerful antioxidant. Antioxidants remove oxidizing agents that can be harmful to the skin.
Epionce Intense Defense Serum– This product is a multivitamin for your skin. It contains botanical sources of vitamins A, B, C, D, and E and is great for all skin types.
Skin Medica HA 5– Contains five different forms of Hyaluronic Acid. This product hydrates each layer of tissue and is versatile in the change in climate. It supports the skin’s natural ability to replenish its own hyaluronic acid for epidermal health.
- Microneedling with Platelet Rich Plasma
If you have not jumped on the Microneedling train, you need to! This treatment produces results for anyone especially pairing it with your platelet rich plasma. We draw your blood and spin it to get your platelet rich plasma and then infuse it back into your skin with the microneedling device. Why use your platelet rich plasma? Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP is full of nutrients and proteins that aid in the healing process after a microneedling treatment. PRP will help with strengthening your extracellular matrix, allowing for your newly developed collagen and elastin to thrive. It also aides the microneedling in softening acne scars, smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles, lightens pigmentation and delievers a large amount of nutrients to your skin.
- Spectra Hollywood Peel
The Spectra Hollywood Peel is new to our WVCM family of treatments. This procedure is one of my favorites! This is an easy and painless procedure that will give your skin that perk it needs. Spectra lotion is applied to your face (looks like a mud mask) and sits on your skin for about 10 to 15 minutes. We then use the laser to gently heat up the mask and remove it. Your skin will have a radiant glow, feel smooth to the touch and with multiple treatments, you will see an improvement in textural concerns and pigmentation!
We offer three different types of facials: Hydrafacial, Dermasound and Natura Bisse Facials. Facials are very important to maintaining skin health providing exfoliation and deep cleaning. Hydrafacial uses different glycolic/salicylic serums with the Vortex technology to deeply clean pores. This facial is great for anyone who wants a deep clean and a radiant glow! Dermasound uses ultrasonic low frequency sound waves providing exfoliation and deeper penetration of serums. The three step treatment uses cavitation to gently exfoliate the skin, sonophoresis to help products penetrate deeper and microcurrent to decrease inflammation, rebalance and repair cells. Natura Bisse facials provide a relaxing, cleansing, luxurious experience for a photo-ready, wow-them-at-the-party glow! Patients also love to add a Dermaplane to their facials for that extra boost of exfoliation.
