Winter is Laser time!

The winter is not officially here, but with all the weather changes the temperature already dropped dramatically and in some states it’s snowing a lot. Now is the time to treat all the skin damage you got from last summer and get rid off all the unwanted hair for next summer.

All the laser treatments require a post care that includes a non exposure to the sun, which is much easier to do in the winter time, when we cover ourselves with many layers of clothes.

The sun’s rays make us feel good, and in the short term and make us look good. But our love affair isn’t a two-way street. Exposure to sun causes most of the wrinkles and age spots on our faces. Consider this: One woman at age 40 who has protected her skin from the sun actually has the skin of a 30-year-old!  It’s important to observe that even though it’s not summer time, the sun still burns your skin with UVA and UVB rays and the snow reflection can be more aggressive that seating at the beach! So please wear sunblock at all times!

Now is the time to get rid of superficial wrinkles, superficial scars, large pores, acne and age spots with our Laser Complexion Blending Treatment.

Laser Genesis

Get vibrant, even skin tone, make pores appear smaller and smooth out fine lines without any social down time with 4-6  Laser Genesis treatments. Laser Genesis can be used on all skin types. When used for skin rejuvenation, the laser penetrates deeply into the skin where collagen is manufactured, stimulating an increase of new collagen production.

Unlike harsher methods, this is done without injuring the skin ( it’s a non-ablative laser) and best results are obtained by doing a series of treatments.You can expect to see subtle yet consistent results after each treatment, without unwanted side effects such as bruising or irritation. Treatments can be performed in a relaxed, comfortable manner without the use of topical anesthetics or gel. The skin is gently warmed during this procedure, and daily activities may be resumed immediately afterwards.  You will see a more even, healthy complexion as large pores are reduced in size, and minor imperfections are diminished.

Laser-Genesis

Laser Genesis improves the skin’s overall appearance, particularly on face, neck and chest, decreasing fine line wrinkles and restoring even skin tones. Genesis tightens pores and improves skin texture, smooths ruddy complexions and diffuses excessive facial redness, including that caused by rosacea.

The number of facial treatments needed depends upon the goal but usually a series of 4-6 treatments spaced 2 to 4 weeks apart is recommended. Results are generally seen after just one treatment, but a series of treatments is required for optimal results.

Microdermabrasion or Silkpeel

Microdermabrasion

Our microdermabrasion treatment is performed with the latest diamond-tip technology. Also known as microderm, it’s one of the easiest and most effective anti-aging treatments you can get. It works on both the outer layer of the skin (called the epidermis) as well as the deep layer of the skin (the dermis). Dead skin cells are exfoliated and vacuumed off the face with a microdermabrasion machine, that uses microdermabrasion tips covered in tiny diamonds. This procedure doesn’t cause any particles to be emitted that can get in the eyes or mouth, and is regarded as an especially safe form of treatment. The diamond tips together with the strong suction make it possible to exfoliate the skin more thoroughly than other procedures. With the flexibility of using different suction levels, it also increases blood flow to the skin, and that in turn helps to produce collagen.

Its benefits are many: microderm softens fine lines and wrinkles, helps to smooth coarsely textured skin, decreases the appearance of scarring, decreases pore size, and reduces superficial hyper-pigmentation, also known as age spots.

The silkpeel triggers a wound response in the skin. As the skin repairs itself, it becomes thicker, smoother, more elastic, and looks healthier as a result.

It also makes it easier for high-tech skin care products to penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin and help build collagen, which gives skin its youthful appearance.

Complexion Blending

Complexion Blending is a customized service offered by Radiance Medspa DC that combines the Silkpeel and the Laser Genesis. It’s a win win offer that you should be taking advantage of. The combination is perfect to clear pores and repair your skin from all the sun damage that caused discolorations of the skin, the dilation of small blood vessels under the skin and the destruction of the elastic and collagen tissue (causing lines, wrinkles and sagging skin).

That’s how it works: After an effective session of suction and exfoliation with the diamond-tip microdermabrasion it’s the perfect moment to perform the Laser Genesis Treatment. Your skin will be clean and more receptive of the deep laser penetration allowing  you  the ideal results. Don’t wait any longer. Start repairing and treating your skin now and you will see the results.

PS: Small, scaly patches are caused by too much sun, and commonly occur on the head, neck, or hands, but can be found elsewhere. They can be an early warning sign of skin cancer, but it’s hard to tell whether a particular patch will continue to change over time and become cancerous. Most do not, but doctors recommend early treatment to prevent the development of squamous cell skin cancer. If you have any sign after sun exposure please consult your dermatologist as soon as possible.
