Skin Care Treatment

Having clear, beautiful skin takes work. One needs to take care of their skin in order to have a healthy glowing complexion. It’s also important for our health.

Our skin is the largest barrier against infection that we have and also our largest external organ. If we take care of this barrier with regular maintenance, it keeps it strong and able to fight off infections, wrinkles, blemishes and more. Therefore, it is extremely important to keep up with the latest skincare treatments and technologies out on the market today.

How to Take Care of Your Skin

Many people fall victim to trendy skin care and cosmetic routines without really considering their skin type. In some cases, these trends can be harmful to your skin and could even make the issues you are facing worse. Having a daily skin care routine with products for all skin types may help your skin feel better and wash away the dirt and grime without making your face feel dry or tight.

Your daily skin care routine should include a cleanser (ones for all skin types, i.e. Cetaphil), a moisturizer, vitamin C and E filled serums or retinoids, and relatively consistent use of sunscreen, especially during the hotter months.

It is pertinent for your skin’s health to stay hydrated as your skin can become dry as a symptom of dehydration.

4 Skin Care Tips

    1. Protect your skin from the sun everyday: Make a commitment to protect your skin from UV damage and wear sunscreen under your makeup or purchase makeup that has at least SPF 15. If you don’t know what’s right for your skin type, ask your doctor what they recommend. UV damage can cause premature wrinkles and sun spots. By protecting your skin from UV rays, you will continue to look more youthful!

    2. Throw away outdated skincare products: Makeup that hasn’t been used in a while and outdated skincare products may be hosting bacteria and can cause breakouts. Open the medicine cabinet and empty your makeup bag. If you haven’t touched that skincare product or piece of makeup in a few months, it’s time to say goodbye. Your skin will thank you later.

    3. Sleep without make-up: Not removing your makeup is one of the worst don’ts when it comes to your skincare routine. Makeup clogs pores and can leave your complexion looking dull. Wash, tone, and moisturize your skin every night before bed.

    4. Exfoliate: This is the step most people skip as part of their skin care routine. Try exfoliating at least once a week with an at home facial scrub – you will see an immediate difference. If you can make it into the office, try vibradermabrasion or a chemical peel. Peels in particular can take years off your face.

Why Cosmetic Skin Care?

Cosmetic, medical skin care will be beneficial for people who struggle with various skin conditions or issues that a regular daily routine may be unable to fix. Severe acne, deep lines and wrinkles treatment, facial scarring, rosacea, and other skin conditions that may be socially debilitating will need professional treatment in order to get the desired aesthetic effect.

What Do Cosmetic Skin Care Treatments Do?

Cosmetic, medical treatments are designed to help improve the look and feel of your skin. Some of our treatments use heat, some use tiny needles, some use radio frequencies, and still others utilize chemical peels to induce a natural increase collagen production to help your skin have a more natural gleam. Almost all of our skin care treatments are non-surgical meaning that they are minimally invasive, have a short term recovery time (if none at all), and are typically less expensive and work better than their alternatives. One thing is for certain: their popularity is rising.

Types of Skin Care Treatments

At Wellmedica, we offer a wide variety of skin care treatment options that help resolve a host of skin care concerns. Below are just a few of the treatment options we offer.

Botox Injections

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a simple, non-surgical, treatment that can temporarily smooth moderate to severe fine lines and wrinkles. It relaxes facial muscles so you can smile, frown or look surprised without furrows, creases and wrinkles. These lines actually result from muscle movement and the passage of time. BOTOX® Cosmetic works great for fine lines by blocking nerve impulses, which reduces the movement of those muscles. With less movement, the skin surface smooths out, and the frown lines between your brows begin to fade.

The procedure is a simple one. Dr. Dima Ali uses an ultra fine needle to precisely inject small amounts of BOTOX® Cosmetic under the skin in the areas where there are dynamic wrinkles. Discomfort is minimal and brief. No sedation or local anesthetic is required and you may resume your normal day’s activities right away. 

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are typically used to restore a youthful, vibrant appearance to wrinkly, blotchy, sun-damaged skin. There are three main types of chemical face peels, and each has unique benefits for the skin. The light chemical peel improves acne scars and skin texture, and reduces the effects of sun damage.

Chemical peel treatment is an in-office treatment involving the placement of a chemical on the skin’s surface to treat facial wrinkles, abnormal skin growths, or abnormal skin pigmentation. It’s a treatment available to people of all ages whenever the first effects of photo aging (damaging effects of sunlight on skin) begin to be visible on facial skin. At Wellmedica, we provide our customers with a chemical solution that is applied to the skin, which makes it “blister” and eventually peel off. The new skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin.

Benefits of chemical peels include:

      • Diminishes fine lines, wrinkles: Creams, serums and lotions can only do so much. Chemical peels offer a fast-track to smoother, line-free skin.
      • Confidence booster: There’s no quicker path to confidence than a smooth, glowing complexion.
      • Minimal cost: Unlike spending hundreds of dollars on the newest anti-aging products, chemical peels offer concrete results at a reasonable price.
      • Fast: Sometimes referred to as the “lunch time peel”, chemical peels require minimal down time, i.e. you can get one, and get back to your life without worrying about recovery.

Premiere medical facials are custom tailored to your skin’s needs and generally follow the same steps as a spa facial—cleansing, exfoliating, extractions, and moisturizing, but on a more intense level using medical grade skincare products.
