SPRING SKIN CARE
Spring is a time to start preparing for summer and recovering from the winter. Hydration, exfoliation and liberal sunscreen application as the weather begins to heat up is key. Look for alpha hydroxy and beta hydroxy acids, which help replenish dry skin. You’ll want to use a moisturizer with glycolic acid to gently remove dead skin cells and exfoliate to get rid of dry, rough skin left over from winter.

PCA Chemical Peels will deeply exfoliate your skin. This level of exfoliation can not be attained at home and is performed by an aesthetician in a med spa environment. Chemical peels eliminate pigmentation and signs of aging to help you maintain a flawless complexion. The unique combination of elements in the PCA Chemical Peel creates powerful results with virtually no pain and minimal downtime. This chemical peel treats hyper pigmentation and melasma. It reverses sun damage and signs of aging. You will see a big improvement in your skin tone and texture; acne and scars will be cleared. Collagen growth and elastin production is stimulated and the appearance of pores is reduced. We can customize the depth and level of chemical peel to the results you desire.
SUMMER SKIN CARE
During the summer months, the weather gets hot, and as a med spa it is our duty to help you protect your skin. When choosing a sunscreen for your face, look for ingredients like titanium dioxide and/or zinc oxide. These ingredients work by physically blocking the UV rays from penetrating your skin. This type of sunscreen is also better for your skin because it is not a chemical sunscreen. As the heat of summer increases, so does your sweating. Your summer daily skin care routine should involve exfoliating dead skin cells and gently cleansing oily skin to unclog pores.

Fall is a great time for treating sun damage left over from the summer.

Melasma should be treated with a combination of topical skin care products and microneedling treatments.
