Did you know that September is National Self-Improvement Month? It also happens to be National Self-Care Awareness Month, which means you have two nationally sanctioned reasons to treat yourself to your favorite aesthetic and wellness treatments at Belle Marin Aesthetic Medicine. (Not that you need an excuse!)
This hectic time of year demands self-care in a major way, so here are a few ideas for getting your glow on, reversing summer sun damage and restoring your vitality.
BBL HERO™ photofacials
We sometimes refer to this amazing skin treatment as “light therapy” because after our treatments, we feel energized and intensely refreshed. Our mood is elevated! This non-invasive treatment is similar to IPL (intense pulsed light), but instead of one focused beam of light, BBL uses multiple wavelengths of intense pulsed light (BroadBand) to stimulate your skin without breaking the surface. We bet the intense light has something to do with boosting our mood, but all silliness aside, did you know that BBL HERO is the most advanced and most effective photofacial technology on the market?
Here’s a bit more on how photofacials work. While the intense light breaks up surface pigmentation concerns like age spots, sunspots, freckles and dark spots, it also helps reduce redness, rosacea and small veins. But best of all, while you’re seeing more even skin tone on the surface, you’re also getting age-defying benefits from deep within, because this treatment stimulates new collagen and elastin growth. Our patients and our team swear by BBL photofacials for keeping our skin younger looking and radiant. Another big plus: There’s no downtime, so you can schedule treatments during your busy schedule.
Belle Transform PRX-T33 no-peel chemical peel
Another way to give yourself a complexion and metaphorical boost is this groundbreaking skin treatment from Italy, formulated by the research- and results-driven Italian skin care company WiQo®. Textural concerns, crepey skin, dark spots, uneven tone, dullness, large pores — you name it, this skin treatment can tame it! This relaxing treatment is massaged into your skin. It’s made of a patented combination of trichloroacetic acid (TCA) and hydrogen peroxide, but it doesn’t remove the top layer of skin like traditional TCA peels. Instead, it penetrates into your dermis while keeping the surface layer of your skin intact. Thanks to the hydrogen peroxide, this no-peel chemical peel revitalizes skin from within and reveals immediate and long-lasting improvements to your complexion. Because Belle Transform doesn’t break the skin, there’s no downtime to worry about. For your best results, we recommend a series of at least three treatments, depending on your goals. This treatment also includes at-home WiQo skin care designed specifically for boosting and maintaining your results.
We have so many glow-getting treatments for you, so your best bet is calling us for a personal consultation. We’ll sit down with you to discuss your complexion goals and devise a regimen that meets your exact needs and budget! To get started, call (415) 887-8718 or request a consultation today.
