Hydrafacial

The HydraFacial MD is our most popular skin care procedure providing cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, and hydration allowing a way to pursue and maintain long-term skin health, which makes it more than your typical spa treatment.

We also use Vortex-Fusing antioxidants, peptides and hyaluronic acid into the skin for a healthy complexion. Boosters and upgrades can be added to enhance this treatment and improve skin health, addresses individual concerns, and creates a glow like no other. Unlike traditional facials, it’s performed via device rather than by hand, for deeper penetration and longer lasting results.

3 Steps to the Best Skin of Your Life

Every Hydrafacial treatment starts with three simple steps–from there, we’ll personalize the experience based on your skin goals.

1. Cleanse

  • Deeply cleanses and exfoliates with a gentle peel to uncover a new layer of skin.

2. Extract

  • Removes impurities from pores with painless gentle suction.

3. Hydrate

  • Saturates the skin’s surface with intense moisturizers and nourishing, personalized ingredients.

The HydraFacial is a treatment that is suitable for all skin tones and requires no downtime. In fact, your complexion will likely look better walking out the door.

 

 

Facials

What Is A Facial?

A facial is a family of skin care treatments for the face, including steam, exfoliation (physical and chemical), extraction, creams, lotions, facial masks, peels, and massage. Facials are used for general skin health as well as for specific skin conditions. A basic facial is a skin treatment that cleanses pores, exfoliates away dead skin cells, and treats common skin concerns with a custom mask. This multi-step process is meant to rejuvenate and nourish faces, making skin appear healthier and younger. It is also a popular spa treatment to pamper and relax, right up there with a massage.

What Happens During A Facial?

Each facial begins with a consultation that helps the aesthetician determine the right products for your skin type and concerns. Once that’s been determined, the relaxing part begins! Most basic facials include some version of the following five steps:

1. Cleansing

Aestheticians massage a cleanser into the face, neck, and décolletage to remove any traces of makeup and dirt. Using warm water paired with a facial sponge, cloth, or cotton pad, they remove the cleanser, dry faces, and evaluate skin. This step helps them determine what type of custom mask they will apply later.

2. Exfoliation

Depending on the spa you’re visiting, your aesthetician may buff away dead skin cells with an exfoliating cream or scrub and/or open up pores with steam.

3. Extractions

This process is done to clear individual pores that have become clogged with excess oil or dead skin cells, which can form blackheads and acne. Aestheticians will perform the extractions either by hand or with a special metal tool.

4. Massage

A facial typically also includes a massage of the face—and often the upper body, too—that may be used to improve lymphatic drainage.

5. Masks and more

Aestheticians then apply a custom mask, perhaps a clay-based one to treat oiliness or a hydrating one to combat dryness. The facial concludes with a serum, moisturizer, and sunscreen if it’s daytime.

Facials deeply cleanse skin and may help fight certain skin problems, such as mild acne or dryness. The treatments leave faces glowing and are typically very relaxing, as they include a massage component.

Regular facials can help improve skin texture and tone, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, unclog pores, prevent breakouts, boost hydration levels in the skin.

 

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels can improve the skin’s appearance. In this treatment, a chemical solution is applied to the skin, which makes it “blister” and eventually peel off. The new skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin.

Chemical peels can be done on the face, neck, or hands. They can be used to:

  • Reduce fine lines under the eyes and around the mouth
  • Treat wrinkles caused by sun damage and aging
  • Improve the appearance of mild scars
  • Treat certain types of acne
  • Reduce age spots, freckles, and dark patches (melasma) due to pregnancy or taking birth control pills
  • Improve the look and feel of skin
  • Areas of sun damage may improve after chemical peeling.

Good Candidates For a Chemical Peel
Generally, fair-skinned and light-haired patients are better candidates for chemical peels. If you have darker skin, you may also have good results, depending upon the type of problem being treated. But you also may be more likely to have an uneven skin tone after the procedure.

The Chemical Peel Process
The professional who does your peel will first clean your skin thoroughly. Then they will apply one or more chemical solutions — such as glycolic acid, trichloroacetic acid, salicylic acid, lactic acid, or carbolic acid (phenol) — to small areas of your skin. That creates a controlled wound, letting new skin take its place.

During a chemical peel, most people feel a burning sensation that lasts about five to ten minutes, followed by a stinging sensation. Putting cool compresses on the skin may ease that stinging.

What To Expect After the Chemical Peel
Depending upon the type of chemical peel, a reaction similar to sunburn occurs following the procedure. Peeling usually involves redness followed by scaling that ends within three to seven days. Mild peels may be repeated at one to four-week intervals until you get the look you’re after.

Skin Rejuvenation for Sun Damage and Aging Skin with BBL

Total Skin Rejuvenation with BBL for Sun Damage & Aging Skin uses Broadband Light Energy that is absorbed by your skin to photo correct. This helps produce a clear, radiant and healthy complexion.

Hi,  I’m Amy, Advanced Practice Esthetician at ReNew You Medical Spa in Elk River, Minnesota.  I have been an Aesthetician for 15 years and have performed hundreds of ForeverYoung BBL treatments. This is my favorite treatment to offer my patients because it has clinically studied results, allows me to drastically improve the look of my patients skin, and maintain their results with  our ForeverYoung+ treatment which keeps their skin looking younger and healthier after each treatment.

What is this magnificent photo light therapy?

BBL is broadband light energy that is absorbed by your skin to photo correct.  Photo correction helps produce a clear, radiant and healthy complexion.  Broad band light treats a variety of concerns such as
  • Sun damage
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Age spots
  • Freckles
  • Broken Capillaries
  • Broken Vessels
  • Rosacea
  • Texture

Not only does BBL target photo damage, a 9 year clinical study has proven the light energy stimulates collagen, creating thicker, younger skin originating the term “ForeverYoung BBL”. You can expect smoother, brighter, healthier skin just after one treatment!

BBL is highly effective for facial skin as well as neck, chest, arms, and hands.

 

How many Treatments will I need? 

We recommend a series of 3-6 treatments spaced 4 weeks apart. After initial series is complete, maintain that glow by receiving 2-4 ForeverYoung+  treatments per year.

What type of downtime will I have? 

BBL is a non invasive treatment with virtually no downtime. Most common side effects are a mild sunburn sensation, redness, and darkening of sun damage that will slough off after 7-10 days. The avoidance of sun exposure is crucial for your success with a BBL series. Makeup can be applied immediately post treatment.
Patients can resume most activities the same day of treatment.

 

How do I get started? 

Whether you are targeting a certain concern or looking to prevent/maintain that youthful glow, we require a consult to ensure the treatment is the right path to meet your skincare goals.

VI Peels are safe for all skin types. The application is painless with visible results in 7 days.  Day 1-3  there may be some light itching and flaking. Day 3-5 you will begin peeling and by Day 7 you should be completely healed. We take the guess work out of post care with a take home kit with easy to follow instructions.

The VI Peel is used for treating specific targeted concerns. It is best done in a series of 3 with 4-6 weeks between each treatment.  The VI Advanced Peel system is great for mature skin with its ability to stimulate collagen.
