The Next Treatment To Try At FYBC

fybc.jpgThere are many myths surrounding microdermabrasion treatments. Bettering your complexion has never been so simple, and microdermabrasion is one of the best ways to achieve positive results. If you are considering this fantastic treatment but are unsure, we are debunking the most common myths about microdermabrasion.

  • Microdermabrasion is Painful

There should be no pain with any microdermabrasion treatment. In fact, most clients describe microdermabrasion as relaxing. A microdermabrasion treatment is done with the help of a hand piece, which is run over the surface of your skin. This produces a slight scratching sensation. This feeling is the removal of the superficial skin cells.

  • Microdermabrasion Only Works on Those with Light Skin Pigmentation

This amazing procedure is for everyone! Just because you do not have fair skin does not mean that microdermabrasion will not work on you!

  • DIY Home Kits produce the Same Results

Although at home kits tend to be the more affordable route, they are by no means the most effective. A quality microdermabrasion treatment requires a professional practitioner handling your skin. A professional will be able to administer the treatment properly, by ensuring your utmost comfort and avoiding any mishaps.

  • Facial Scrubs are Equivalent to Microdermabrasion

Although facial scrubs are wonderful for your skin, they do not achieve the same results as a microdermabrasion treatment. Facial scrubs remove dead skin cells whereas microdermabrasion not only gets rid superficial skin, it also reduces fine lines, age spots and blemishes! There is really nothing like the real deal! Facial scrubs and microdermabrasion are not one in the same.

  • Microdermabrasion Requires Rest Post- Treatment

This is completely false. A microdermabrasion treatment can be done over your lunch break or before any event. This is our favorite part about this procedure! Expect your skin to be pink for a few hours after the treatment but it is nothing severe.

Try microdermabrasion with us today! We are a professional and skilled staff ready to help you achieve the clear and glowing skin you have been hoping for. Book your appointment with us today.

Pumpkin: For More Than Just Carving

 

fyAutumn is upon us, which means we no longer have to feel shy about our love for all things pumpkin. Although pumpkin is commonly looked upon as a flavor of delicious desserts and foods, pumpkin in its original form, is packed with vitamin C, E, B and beta-carotene. This means along with being tasty, pumpkin can improve the health of your skin and hair. Get cozy, grab a PSL and learn all there is to know about the wonderful benefits pumpkin can have on your skin this season. If you are looking to improve the overall health and quality of your skin, applying pumpkin facials or adding it to your diet can help immensely.

B Vitamins: 

Pumpkin contains a strong source of most all the B vitamins, including niacin, B6 and folate. Niacin directly helps with the treatment of acne! Folate helps your skin cells renew faster!

Vitamin C: 

Vitamin C helps protect and prevent wrinkles and even skin cancer.  Eating vitamin C rich foods, like pumpkin encourage collagen production! Eat more pumpkin and your skin is sure to become more elastic.

Minerals: 

Pumpkin contains abundant sources of copper, magnesium, and iron. Zinc fights acne, maintains current collagen in your skin, and protects the cell membrane. Pumpkin is also rich in zinc and copper, which is crucial to healthy skin.

Carotenoids: 

Have you ever wondered why are pumpkins orange? Alpha-carotene, beta-carotene are protective antioxidants responsible for giving pumpkins their color. Food that is rich in carotenoids are known to help reverse UV damage and improve the overall texture of your skin.

Besides the consumption of pumpkin, you can receive its many benefits by incorporating pumpkin into masks, facial creams or peels. Here is a great face mask that will rejuvenate and restore your skin.

5 Things To Do For Your Skin This Fall

fybc.jpgIn the coming months your skin is going to be exposed to colder outdoor temperatures, high wind, low humidity and blazing indoor heat. Although avoiding the elements is virtually unavoidable, there are ways you can combat and lessen the effects of the change in weather and temperature. Our team of skin specialists are some of the best in the Denver area. We know what it takes to get you through this fall and winter looking your best. Here are some of our at home skincare secrets that will leave you feeling smooth from head to toe.

Moisturize x2

Although this seems like a given, most people don’t moisturize properly or as frequent as they should. The most important rule is to moisturize with lotion after your shower. Find another time during the day to reapply. Set yourself up to reapply multiple times a day by keep your favorite lotion by your bedside or with you at work. Finding a lotion that isn’t too thick and creamy is always a plus.

A Humidifier Works Wonders

This may be the easiest yet most important tip of them all. Not only will you see immediate affects, but you don’t have to actively do anything to get positive results! Leave your humidifier running while you are sleeping. Not only will your skin be better moisturized in the morning but you will breathe better through the night.

Ditch the Harsh Soap

Get yourself a mild soap and cleanser. One of the biggest mistakes people make when caring for their skin is how harsh they handle it. Scrubbing your face till it’s irritated is one of the worst things you could do during chillier months. Avoid products with glycolic acid and benzoyl peroxide. Get a cleanser with oils and fats. Cleanse your face with the help of a brush for a deep cleanse but without harsh pressure.

Less Tub Time

This is our least favorite tip too. Although we all love a long bath, time spent in the tub washes away a great deal of your essential and protective oils. You need these oils as your skin gets drier. Protective oils ensure that your skin holds on to its natural moisture, for longer. Cut your bath time to 15 minutes or less for better moisturized skin.

Drink Water and Eat Better

Hydrating from the inside is an essential step. The presence of water gives your skin firmer and plumper qualities. For the best results, drink 2-4 glasses a day. As for your dietary intake, you are what you eat. If you are supplying your body with antioxidants and fatty acids, your body will not only feel healthier from the inside but will translate that positivity to your skin.

By adding these skin tips to your daily regimen, your skin can make it through the colder months looking fresh and hydrated. Support the care you are giving your skin at home with our services. One of our chemical peels, microdermabrasion or other facials can help. For an appointment, call or book online today.
