Skincare can be overwhelming. There are so many topics, options, brands, and opinions. It can be confusing and draining when you’re trying to find your perfect skincare routine. But here at Alazzo Med Spa, we want to help make the process easier for you. So in this article, we’ll cover basic skincare, and go in-depth on advanced skincare treatments available at our aesthetic clinic in Frederick
Start with The Basics
Discover what kind of skin you have—that’s right! Do some investigation on what kind of skin you have. There are so many skin types, including dry, oily, hydrated, and even a mixture of those mentioned. Figuring this out is key to getting the right kind of products for your skin.
If you have dry skin, you may need a moisturizer more focused on hydration. Or if you have oily skin, you can get a moisturizer that has little to do with hydrating but is more focused on the nutrients your skin needs, even potentially having aspects of the product that will absorb some of that oil.
Getting an expert’s opinion on this can be very beneficial. Here at Alazzo, we support finding that perfect skincare regimen! Our aesthetic clinic in Frederick helps patients find the perfect advanced skincare treatments to pair with their at-home routine.
There’s no such thing as one-size-fits-all skincare or beauty. We take all of the information and insight gained during your consultation to build the treatment plan that’s best for you. You deserve nothing but the best when it comes to your skincare and wellness. Our qualified providers offer the most sought-after aesthetic treatments available.
So, here are some of our expert recommendations!
Upgrade to Fraxel
The light energy from our Fraxel treatment stimulates the growth of new skin cells and stimulates collagen surplus. Old and damaged cells are replaced with fresh, glowing, healthy skin.
A heat-energy-based treatment is used to stimulate collagen, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and diminish pore size, giving your skin a more youthful appearance with minimal downtime. Our expert laser technicians deliver the specific energy that will benefit your unique skin.
Producing thousands of tiny laser columns that can penetrate deep into your skin, the treatment can expedite your body’s remodeling of collagen. This can do all of the following:
- Resurfaces damaged skin
- Quickens collagen production
- Stimulates regrowth of skin cells
We recommend getting the Fraxel treatment done to aid in the rejuvenation and newfound glow in your face that comes with advanced skincare treatments at our aesthetic clinic in Frederick!
Your provider will ensure you have a thorough understanding of every aspect of the aftercare for your specific Fraxel laser treatment. Your skin will have a pink glow after the treatment and needs to be protected. We recommend applying an SPF on a daily basis.
You can return to work or resume your normal activity immediately, unless you are unforgettable with the pink glow you have, but that should resolve after a few days. A light covering of makeup can be applied, if desired.
A textured, rough sensation will be noticed on your skin in the days to follow, and this may also come with swelling, tightness, and some flaking of the skin. None of these are to worry about, as your skin is just going through the natural healing process.
Do you want to rid yourself of fine lines and wrinkles while tightening your skin? Microneedling delivers up to 1,300 micro-punctures into your skin to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin.
Unlike lasers, chemical peels, or dermabrasion, a microneedling treatment does not burn the skin, dissolve it, or scrape it. Microneedling gently stimulates the skin with very fine needles that encourage natural collagen production.
Not only does it assist your skincare routine, but it will also…
- Erase fine lines
- Smooth deep wrinkles
- Clear acne scars
- Soften or eliminate stretch marks
Your provider will ensure you have a thorough understanding of every aspect of the aftercare for your microneedling. In general, we recommend that you do not apply anything to your skin for at least 24 hours. You’ll likely experience some facial redness for anywhere from 12 to 48 hours, and your provider will ensure you understand exactly what to expect.
Are you searching for the look of ageless skin with a more even skin tone that has a smoother, firmer finish, but needs more than traditional skincare? Intense pulsed light (IPL) facials could be the perfect solution for you. These facials combine advanced skincare treatments at an aesthetic clinic in Frederick with a professional grade skincare routine.
If we determine IPL facials could help you achieve your goals, we can move forward. You will get comfortable in a treatment room, and your provider will apply the light therapy, which uses a narrow band of light in fast pulses. Our Ellipse IPL facial is a unique procedure that lets us treat photodamaged skin with half the energy of laser-based treatments, meaning it’s more comfortable and has less downtime afterwards.
You can expect your skin to have a pink glow after the procedure, and you will need to protect it. Your provider will recommend a gentle SPF sunscreen to use every day. You can return to your day after your treatment, though some patients like to apply a cold compress if their skin feels warm. So in that case, you may want to relax at home to let your skin recover in both feel and color.
Laser Hair Removal
Why It Works
The science on how a laser is able to remove hair is so simple yet amazing. The laser starts by emitting a light which the hair pigment absorbs. Then, that light energy is converted to heat, which damages the hair follicles which grow your hair. This damage, which in no way harms you, inhibits—or at least delays—hair growth in the future.
And the amazing thing about laser hair removal is that it works on faces as well! It is often not talked about, but unwanted hair on your upper lip line can be very annoying and can interfere with your makeup application and skin smoothness. So right along with your typical skincare routine, you can get laser hair removal to enhance the success of your at-home regimen.
Your advanced skincare aesthetic expert will ensure you have a thorough understanding of the aftercare for your laser hair removal treatment. Redness or a slight irritation may last for a few hours to a few days, depending on the texture of your hair and amount of hair in the treatment area. Normal activities and use of products/makeup may be resumed as soon as your treatment is done. Then, we schedule follow-up treatments every 4 weeks for the face, until you reach a point where little hair growth is happening or you are satisfied with the results.
