Clinical Facial Treatments can help to address a wide range of concerns such as sun damage, uneven skin tone, fine lines, scarring, and skin laxity. Our facial treatments aim to improve the look and feel of your skin while restoring a youthful appearance.
We all know facials and how soothing it is for the skin, but are you aware of the difference between a spa facial from a clinical facial?
Clinical facials are not as pampering; more attention is given to serious skin concerns and needs a clinical approach to achieve the results you want. Stronger concentrations and prescription-strength ingredients are used, along with equipment base treatments, like micro-needling, facial toning, and other technologies.
What is Micro-Needling?
At Cape Cod Skin Care®, we use an electric skin needling device made especially for this purpose. Microneedling (aka collagen-induction therapy) is a nonsurgical treatment that penetrates your skin’s surface with fine needles to improve its appearance. This popular procedure can help smooth lines and wrinkles, even skin tone (including stubborn melasma), minimize large pores, firm skin, and fade stretch marks and scars, including acne scars. The device is a pen in which we insert an individual sterile stainless steel cartridge studded with 12 very fine needles. It is a medical device used in micro needling to break down old scar tissue and to stimulate skin cells to proliferate. This cell multiplication results in the formation of new tissue layers of elastin and collagen fibers as well as in new capillaries for improved blood supply.
AMA Blue Onyx Microcurrent is a non-invasive treatment that rebuilds and strengthens the facial muscles. It is a low level of electrical current that mirrors the body’s own natural current. It helps with anti-aging by diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improving the texture and appearance of the skin, re-educating and toning facial muscles, and reducing overall visual appearance of aging. It’s a service that is non-invasive without the recovery, downtime, and expense of surgeries.
The Skin Classic is a high-frequency device utilizing direct high frequency to enable quick, precise treatments of these minor irregularities. They can be anything from skin tags, milia, cherry angiomas, broken capillaries, pimples, blackheads, seborrheic keratosis, or sebaceous hyperplasias Usually, only one treatment is needed. In some cases (usually capillaries) a second treatment may be required. There is very little discomfort but for those more sensitive we do offer lidocaine* prior to treatment.
Chemical peels also vary by the kind of chemical used on the skin. Our estheticians will work with you to identify your skin concerns and make a recommendation on the best peel to give you the desired results. The different intensities of chemical peel will each require different levels of aftercare. With deeper peels, you may need to use a special cleanser and moisturizers during the healing process. A peel is an anti-aging treatment with a host of benefits that include exfoliation, but also builds collagen, reduces fine lines, boosts radiance, shrinks pore size, diminishes dark spots, and can even help with rosacea.
