Skin care routines have been growing in popularity, especially on social media as skin care and beauty gurus are posting their favorite products, treatments, and skin care routines to help everyone get the glowing skin they deserve. Unfortunately, skin care isn’t a matter of the one perfect product or serum. The skin is a complicated organ that requires medical care and maintenance. There are several medical spas in NYC, like MiracleFace MedSpa, that offer medical grade skin tightening and boosting treatments that will work wonders on your skin and offer more than just a little hydration before bed time. Here is a list of some of the most popular medical grade facials in NYC.
Microneedling is a procedure that involves the use of a small mechanical tool with several tiny needles attached to it. Administered by a medical practitioner, the needles are then gently pushed into the skin (usually it has a depth of 0.5 - 3 mm) causing microdamage to the skin which promotes collagen and elastin production as the body tries to repair itself. The treatment is fairly painless as long as numbing cream is applied beforehand and will leave you with smaller pores, firmer skin, and can also help in the reduction of fine lines, wrinkles, and scars. With regular sessions (once a month) you could have amazing glowing skin.
- Secret RF
Secret RF is a form of microneedling but at a far more advanced level. Secret RF uses a slightly larger microneedling tool that penetrates deeper into the skin than regular microneedling. What is particularly special about Secret RF is that it uses radiofrequency energy to cause heat damage to the underlying skin which results in intense collagen and elastin stimulation. Because of the radiofrequency, the results are far more advanced than those of regular microneedling and will shrink your pores, hydrate your skin, eliminate fine lines and wrinkles, and reduce the appearance of scarring after just one session.
- Fraxel laser
Fraxel is a laser treatment that is designed to treat fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, and pigmentation. Because it is a laser treatment it targets the more superficial layers of skin. After a topical numbing cream is applied, the treatment takes about 30 minutes. Fraxel can also be great in combination with Secret RF to treat scarring and will reduce the size of your pores as well. Just like the above mentioned treatments, it works through controlled damage to the skin, causing collagen and elastin production in the body which results in tighter, firmer, glowier skin.
The above mentioned treatments are the three most popular and effective medical grade facials in New York at the moment. Research has shown that Fraxel is typically more popular during the colder seasons because you should be avoiding the sun 2 weeks before and after the treatment. All of the treatments can be used on their own or in combination with each other for optimal results. One of the most important things to keep in mind is that there is no single treatment that works for everyone and that there may be underlying issues that would need to be addressed before opting for them. For this reason, be sure to consult with a medical professional in the field of cosmetic or dermatological medicine to confirm that you are a candidate for the treatments.
