5 Facial Treatments for Your Best Skin Ever

Healthy skin is created over time as a result of great skincare and regular facial treatments. The best facial treatments for your unique skin will depend on which skin concerns you wish to address, as well as your skin type and history. 

No matter which facial treatment you choose, regularly incorporating treatments into your skincare routine can offer several benefits for your skin health. Not only do professional facial treatments give you an opportunity to target deeper skin concerns, they also help rejuvenate the skin by encouraging skin cell turnover. We’ve selected five of the best facial treatments to help you get your best skin ever!

Chemical Peels

During a chemical peel, a chemical solution is applied to the skin to exfoliate and remove damage on the outer layers. The goal of this treatment is to improve the skin’s texture, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and treat certain skin conditions. Chemical peels are extremely versatile treatments as they can be used to address a wide range of skin concerns at once such as hyperpigmentation, acne scarring, uneven skin tone and enlarged pores. By removing the top layer of the skin through chemical exfoliation, the healthier, newer layers of skin beneath are revealed. 

There are several types of chemical peels that are divided by the depth of the treatment. You can have superficial peels, medium peels and deep peels. Each depth of treatment is best for treating different skin concerns, but for most skin concerns we would recommend a superficial or a medium peel. These peels require less downtime than a deep peel and are able to be incorporated into your skin routine regularly. You can get a superficial chemical once every month or every other month, and medium peels can be done every 4-6 months. 

Microneedling

Microneedling is a treatment where a device with tiny sterilized needles is used to create controlled micro punctures in the skin to stimulate your body’s natural healing process and encourage collagen production. Microneedling is another versatile skin treatment that can be used to treat many of the most common skin concerns including fine lines, acne scarring, hyperpigmentation, stretch marks, and loose or sagging skin. 

Microneedling is a great facial treatment to get regularly because it stimulates your body’s natural collagen production, which over time improves your overall skin condition. It’s important to note that microneedling treatments must be performed by a professional with an FDA approved microneedling device. There are many home microneedling devices available and unlicensed professionals offering this service, but this treatment can cause scarring and skin damage when not performed correctly. At You Derma, we use the Clarion DP4 microneedling pen which is a top-of-the-line FDA approved device to ensure the safest and most effective results for our clients. We recommend incorporating regular microneedling treatments into your skin care routine 2-3 times yearly. 

Bela MD Facial

A Bela MD facial is a unique facial treatment that combines medical grade dermabrasion with customizable serums. This all-in-one facial combines several steps including microdermabrasion, application of concentrated skin serums, electromechanical stimulation, hydrogen water infusion and electroporation. This facial works to optimize skin health beneath the surface, while also visibly improving skin issues.

Bela MD facials can be a great way to treat many common skin concerns such as uneven complexion, sun damage and age spots, acne, skin congestion and redness and rosacea. There are four different serums available during the bela MD facial — bCALM which boosts hydration, bBRIGHT which improves skin brightness, bCLEAR which reduces excess oil, and bEVEN which evens skin tone. The serums used will be selected based on your unique skin, making this facial a truly custom experience. We recommend incorporating a Bela MD facial into your skincare routine monthly, or some clients prefer these treatments as a seasonal boost. 

Laser Micropeel

A laser micropeel is a peel procedure similar to a chemical peel, where a laser beam is used to exfoliate the skin instead of a chemical solution. A targeted laser beam is used to delicately remove micron-thin layers of the skin to help treat skin imperfections. The laser treatment can also be used to reach deeper layers of the skin, which encourages production of new collagen. Laser micropeels can be used to treat a range of skin concerns including wrinkles, fine lines, sun damage, hyperpigmentation and acne scars. 

One of the key advantages of laser peels is that the laser can be used in a controlled manner by the technician to target your specific skin concerns. Where a chemical peel is great for treating the overall skin condition, a laser micropeel treatment can be customized specifically to address different skin conditions at different levels within the skin. This treatment is great because there is little to no downtime afterwards, making it a convenient option for those wishing to incorporate it into your regular skincare routine. To maintain the beautiful results of your laser micropeel, we’d recommend coming for treatment 3-4 times per year. 

Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning is a treatment where a surgical scalpel is used to gently remove built up dead skin cells and fine hairs from the top layer of the skin. Over time, your skin can become congested when not properly exfoliated and the dead skin cells can cause your complexion to appear dull and uneven. Dermaplaning helps to reveal smoother, brighter skin and smoothing the surface of your skin can also help your skincare products penetrate deeper for better effectiveness. 

Dermaplaning makes a great addition to your skincare routine because of the non-invasive nature of this treatment. There’s no downtime needed after a dermaplaning treatment and the results are immediate. Not only does dermaplaning promote regular skin cell turnover, it also helps your skincare products and makeup sit much more seamlessly on the skin. This is a great treatment for people who are new to aesthetics treatments and are looking for a quick and effective treatment to start with. We recommend incorporating dermaplaning treatments into your routine every 4-6 weeks to keep your skin looking smooth and radiant.
