New Skinsations offers a treasure trove for all things anti-aging. One of the most popular treatments the medspa offers is skin resurfacing, a treatment that erases wrinkles, acne, and pigmentation marks, leaving firm, youthful skin in its place.
Office Manager Danielle Webber and licensed esthetician Lindsey Crouse sat down with City Magazine to discuss skin resurfacing, the trendy anti-aging treatment that’s a house favorite.
What is skin resurfacing?
Skin resurfacing is a non-invasive treatment that reduces the visible signs of skin aging and smooths texture. New Skinsations features Venus Viva, a machine that safely uses nanofractional radio frequency to regenerate collagen and tissue under the skin.
The process puts energy under the skin, which is dispersed to stimulate a restructuring process that will result in a smoother, fuller appearance. By leaving some of the surface tissue unharmed, you’re going to have a lot less down time and a more comfortable post-treatment recovery.
The treatment refreshes and rejuvenates skin to treat a variety of dermal conditions including wrinkles, fine lines, hyperpigmentation, acne scarring, stretch marks, and other scars.
New Skinsations offers a skin resurfacing package featuring a series of four treatments and includes a post-procedure kit with a highly-concentrated daily stem cell therapy serum.
What should you know before treatment?
The treatment is safe for all skin types, tones, and conditions; however, those who are pregnant, nursing, or who tan regularly aren’t candidates. Certain diseases or health conditions may prohibit treatment.
Free consultations are encouraged beforehand. Your licensed esthetician will address your skin-specific concern and help determine if the treatment is the best option for you, Danielle says.
Treatments can range from mild to aggressive. For a mild treatment, the machine’s sensation resembles a prickling tickle, Lindsey says. Clients can request a topical numbing cream.
Though the treatment can feel uncomfortable, post-recovery is quick, Danielle says. “You might feel like you have a slight sunburn for the first one to two days post-treatment. Down time is usually just 24 to 48 hours.”
What are typical results?
“Results do vary,” Danielle says. “Everyone responds differently to the treatment, but we’ve had only happy clients from this treatment. The results outweigh any discomfort.”
Some clients will notice a visible difference in their skin after one treatment, and by the second treatment, most will see results.
Typical results clients can expect from the treatment include less noticeable scarring, smoother and plumper skin, more evened skin tone, minimized pores, and a clearer overall appearance.
“People often find that there is something they would like to change about their skin,” Danielle says. “Ultimately, this is one reason we really love to offer this treatment. The way it can improve people’s skin and the way they feel about themselves is absolutely life-changing.”
Why are anti-aging treatments important?
Aging is never going to stop, Danielle says. In your 20s, you can take preventative steps by starting a skin care regimen and remembering to wear sunscreen daily. By your 30s, you should be mindful of any issues, like loss of fullness or stretch marks, to address.
“The sooner you address these issues, the better,” Danielle says. “You do hit a point in your 60s or beyond, where your skin won’t produce near as much collagen as in your younger years. If you wait too long, you might not be able to achieve as good of results as you would have earlier.”
“It’s easy to forget that the skin is the largest organ of your body,” Lindsey says. “If you take care of all of your other organs, why would you not take care of your skin? You only get one.”
