Sometimes, there seems to be so many moving parts to healthy skin care. Many of us have state-of-the-art treatments, but go back to old habits as soon as we leave the treatment room. Even for the most dedicated med spa goers, maintaining a good skin care program at home will protect and maximize your treatment results, and prevent unnecessary worries in the future.
Had an amazing treatment at the med spa? Good! Here are five things you can do to enjoy radiant results for longer:
Ask your aesthetician
Your aesthetician knows better than anyone the small tips and tricks that can optimize your results. It may be something as small as adding more antioxidant-rich staples to your diet. Or how frequently you should be moisturizing throughout the day. Or taking a particular supplement or vitamin to boost your benefits.
At Honolulu Med Spa, our expert aestheticians will help you create a skin care plan you can (actually) follow. If you’re willing to put in a little extra effort after a special treatment, just ask: We’ll be happy to give you inside tips and secrets that make a difference.
Re-think your cleansing routine
We can all get a bit lazy— or on the flipside, a bit too aggressive—when it comes to daily cleansing. Level up your cleansing game with a professional cleansing wand! The Clarisonic® is one of the best tools a girl can have in her beauty arsenal. It does an expert job of removing makeup and dirt. It also fully exfoliates skin so your serums and creams absorb better. With this kind of thorough cleansing, you can look forward to more supple skin, smaller pores, and fewer breakouts.
Map out monthly facials
Getting regular facials is one of the easiest ways to extend your post-treatment glow and address issues that need expert help. Before leaving the med spa, why not take a few moments to look at your schedule and book your next facial, or series of facials? Honolulu Med Spa performs a range of medical grade facials that are not only fantastic for your skin, they’re deeply relaxing too!
Slather on the sunscreen
Minimizing exposure to direct sun is one of the most common instructions we give to patients after a treatment. There are many reasons for this. Suffice it to say, if you really want the full effect of your med spa treatment, be diligent with the SPF in the days and weeks following. Splurge on a pretty new sun hat if it gives you added incentive to keep your face shaded. Here’s a tip: Be sure to apply sunscreen on dry, moisturized skin (neck and ears too!), and wait five minutes for it to fully absorb before you layer on makeup or other products.
Try a high-performing serum
To really boost your after-treatment results, consider investing in a well-reviewed serum, preferably one rich in retinols, antioxidants and/or hyaluronic acid.
At Honolulu Med Spa we carry and recommend the SkinMedica® GRASS Regimen. The TNS Essential Serum® in particular is a product everyone loves. This serum is designed to stimulate the skin’s own natural repair processes. It has growth factors for younger-looking skin, retinols that speed up cell renewal, and antioxidants that fight free radicals. It’s like beauty sleep in a bottle!
