Exfoliate Now & Celebrate Results in Your Holiday Snaps

by | Nov 1, 2019 | Blog

This month’s FAQ: “When is the best time to get skin treatments so I’ll look my best for the holidays?” It’s a great question and one we never tire of answering. Many skin rejuvenation treatments such as light chemical peels and microneedling take under an hour and require no downtime. They could be scheduled in close proximity to your holiday comings and goings, but should you wait until the last minute?

“Better too soon than too late,” recommends Dr Marcells. “Some patients need a series of quick-recovery treatments, to restore their skin’s youthful glow.” He recommends booking a consultation asap to have your skin evaluated and a timely treatment plan created.

Microneedling for a Photo-Friendly Holiday

The unforgiving eye of the camera seems to have a knack for highlighting facial ageing. It’s hard to feel ready for your close-up when you’re unhappy with skin-related issues such as

  • Acne and acne scarring
  • Enlarged pores
  • Fine lines
  • Loose, untoned skin
  • Pigmentation problems
  • Rosacea
  • Wrinkles

Microneedling is a safe, lunchtime treatment that can help you improve your skin tone and texture, and make you feel beautiful from every angle.

8 Reasons to Choose Microneedling for Holiday Skin Rejuvenation

Microneedling checks all the boxes as a patient-friendly skin treatment:

  • Non-surgical
  • Completed in 30-60 minutes
  • Minimal discomfort
  • No chemicals
  • Fast results
  • Affordable

Be Cruel to Be Kind: How Microneedling Works

Microneedling treatments at About Face start with an innovative medical device called the Dermapen. As it glides along the skin, Dermapen’s miniscule, sterile needles create tiny puncture wounds. “Puncturing the skin triggers the body’s natural healing response,” explains Dr Marcells. “It responds to the treatment by creating new collagen and elastin fibres, causing the skin to plump and thicken for a more youthful appearance.”

Despite this scary-sounding description, many patients find the process virtually painless, thanks to the topical anaesthetics that are part of every microneedling treatment.

Micro Peels for Maximum Skin Rejuvenation

Microneedling with Dermapen isn’t indicated for all patients. Often, a micro peel is a better option. “At our practice, our experienced team of trained experts evaluates skin on a patient-to-patient basis,” explains Dr Marcells. “They use their knowledge to help patients understand which facial rejuvenation option is right for them.” In the instance of chemical peels, this can be the important decision about what grade of peel to use. “A chemical peel that is too strong can actually hurt, rather than heal damaged skin,” he says.

A micro peel is perfect if you want skin that looks beautiful in snappies and videos and feels beautiful to the touch, too. The benefits are almost endless:

  • Better skin tone
  • Smaller pores
  • Smoother skin surface
  • Softer skin

About Face micro peels include:

  • Physical exfoliation of dead skin cells
  • Chemical exfoliation
  • Restoration of lost hydration

The process is fast, less than an hour, in fact. However, results are not evident until approximately two weeks after your first treatment. “Most patients will need six treatments, with a two-week break in between,” says Dr Marcells. With the holidays so close, now is a good time to start.
