Staycations are all the rage this year. Whether out of necessity or by choice, you deserve to have the best staycation ever, considering how much stress and worry you’ve been subjected to in recent months! If you’re stuck at home for your vacation this year, we’d like to propose a novel idea: How about scheduling an aesthetic treatment with us? Here at Belle Marin, we think using your staycation to recover from your treatment is a genius way to turn lemons into lemonade by treating yourself to a refreshed, intensely revitalized you!
Here are three ideas for your staycation this year that will help you look and feel amazing:
Halo™ fractional laser skin resurfacing
The ultimate skin revitalizer, Halo literally creates tiny holes in your skin, or “controlled damage” to stimulate new collagen and elastin growth. The first hybrid laser treatment, Halo uses two types of laser energy to stimulate your skin’s natural healing response, revealing radiant new skin after about a week or social downtime. Milder Halo treatments may incur only a few days of social downtime, but medium to intense Halos take about a week for your skin to fully renew itself, making Halo the perfect kick-off to your week of leisure. While most people come home from vacation with a sunburn, you’ll reemerge from your staycation flaunting a radiant, head-turning glow and your best-looking complexion ever.
Injectables or Thread Lifts
Injectables and thread lifts work quite differently but both provide smoother, younger looking skin without surgery and with minimal downtime. Dermal fillers restore lost volume by filling skin with a smooth gel packed with hyaluronic acid (HA). Dermal fillers are amazing, but at a certain point the skin needs more lift and support than injectables can provide, and this is where thread lifts come in to fill the gap. Thread lifts literally lift and smooth skin with fully dissolvable threads. Once the threads dissolve, they stimulate new collagen and elastin growth, resulting in long lasting improvements. (I can help you determine if you would benefit from either treatment, and which one better suits your needs during your virtual consultation.) Both injectables and thread lifts are ideal staycation treatments because you’ll want to lay low following your treatment to allow for any side effects to subside, especially if you’ve never had injectables before and you don’t know what to expect. Thread lifts are well tolerated, but they typically cause bruising and swelling, making it an ideal treatment for a week when you can return home and just relax.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is the magic ingredient of the Vampire Facial and Vampire Facelift treatments. PRP is a potent portion of your very own blood, packed with healing properties and growth factors. Applied to your skin, PRP helps boost your skin’s natural healing response, spurring vibrant new collagen and elastin growth for a wide range of age-defying benefits. The Vampire Facial involves applying PRP to your skin topically while simultaneously performing microneedling treatment. Following your treatment, your skin will be red and feel tight as the PRP dries on your skin. This is a good thing! We want your skin to soak up every last revitalizing drop of the PRP so you get maximum benefits! The Vampire Facial involves injecting the PRP directly into desired areas of your face. We think both Vampire treatments are ideal for your staycation because you’ll want to lay low while the PRP is busy renewing your skin. With both treatments, you’ll see your best results in the weeks and months following.
Another way to think about staycations is that they give you the extra time you never take for yourself. Self-care treatments are easy to put off because there’s always something more pressing to take its place. This staycation, we hope you’ll say “Yes” to you and schedule a treatment at Belle Marin Aesthetic Medicine! We hope to see you soon!
