3 Things To Get Done At A Spa

The best way to be successful at just about anything is to take care of yourself first. If you are too overworked, tired, and bogged down by things, then you are going to be less effective at whatever you do. One of the best ways to take care of yourself is to treat yourself for a day at the medical spa. But what are some skin care treatments that you can get done that will leave your skin looking and feeling refreshed? Read on to learn more. 

Intense Pulse Light

Intense pulse light, or IPL, is a laser treatment that uses direct pulses of light to target certain problems in the skin, such as hyperpigmentation, scarring, and even fine lines and wrinkles. By heating up the skin, it encourages the production of new skin cell turnover which helps you to get rid of skin blemishes and concerns in the process. Depending on what you are targeting, your medical spa professional may recommend that you undergo several IPL treatments. 


One of the most popular treatments out there right now is called microneedling. Microneedling is a form of collagen induction therapy. What does that mean exactly? It means that it encourages the skin's natural production of collagen without many (if any) drugs. By using a handheld device that has hundreds of tiny needles in it, your skin care technician will glide the device across your face to make punctures in your skin. These punctures then send a signal to start your face's natural healing response, which will leave you with more youthful, healthier looking skin. 


Another popular skin treatment is called microdermabrasion. Microdermabrasion is an exfoliating treatment that uses tiny crystals to target the top few layers of the skin. Similar to the other treatments, once the skin has been targeted, it will encourage the growth of new healthier skin in its place. Microdermabrasion is popular because it can be used with a variety of other skin care treatments so that you get even better results.
