If results is what you want, but you came to relax, darling, my sweet darling, you just may have come to the wrong place. While the spa-like environment and soothing touch of your Esthetician may be relaxing in nature, it may be best to, instead, come prepared to workout. “No pain, no gain,” right? Juuuust kidding… sort of! Teehee!
Facials are essentially workouts for your skin. No weight training or cardio is necessary, at least not for these purposes. Your skin care specialist does all of the work for you during your treatment, so you won’t even break a sweat.
Some advantages of a good workout may include muscle toning, increased metabolism, increased circulation and detoxification, increased endorphins, which make you happier, and decreased risk of some chronic health concerns.
Did you know that a thorough facial treatment can have the same benefits? Yep, that’s right! With the proper elements like the discerning eyes and skilled hands of your skin care professional, sophisticated products, and advanced technology, you can achieve true transformation.
Not only is a visit to your esthetician like a trip to the gym, but it’s also like having a thirst-quenching, superfood-filled, protein-packed smoothie (metaphorically speaking, of course.) Your skin is delivered a topical cocktail of antioxidants, peptides, growth factors, stem cells, enzymes, and other essential nutrients to further facilitate achieving your skin health goals.
Now, as with any health or fitness regimen, the professional doesn’t do all of the heavy lifting all of the time. 80% of your results come from what you do at home. For instance, you have an intense weekly workout sesh with your personal trainer. He/she gives you a meal plan and an at-home workout schedule to keep you going in the right direction. You like the idea of the recommendations in theory, buuuut eating pumpkin flavored treats and binge-watching Netflix is your jam, soooo you just do that instead. Hey, that’s cool, I’m not judging, but that just won’t work. I’m just saying.
The appeal of traditional holiday comfort food and the subsequent “itis” is the reason why most people ditch their diets and other healthy behaviors, at least until January 1st. The clouds come out and people ditch their sunscreen. Hey, I get it, pumpkin lattes and muffins are bomb! And removing makeup on those extra tired nights is a drag. But a wise woman once told me, “when you know better, you do better.” Here’s a great opportunity to do just that.
Since the sun in our region is not as strong, and outdoor activities like swimming and visiting the beach are not as frequent, advanced treatments like chemical peels are ideally performed. This time of year is affectionately called “skin peel season.” This is the perfect opportunity to begin an advanced skin fitness program.
In the spirit of doing better for optimal skin fitness, I am pleased to present to you the Acne Detox Plan and Skin Rejuvenation Rehab programs. They are both designed to meet the needs of my beloved patients who are ready to commit to a program that works by investing their time, energy, and resources into getting the results that they want.
