You can boost your skin at home with some of these gross skin hacks AND turn to the pros for more dramatic results and minimal downtime. Although these treatments might seem odd, these skin hacks can help clear up issues from dry skin to acne.
It just so turns out that a common ingredient in your fridge, may be just the ingredient you should be incorporating in your skin care regimen. Applying mayonnaise to your face and neck may help to keep your skin moist and hydrated. The rich oils and eggs that are in mayonnaise make it a great face mask option. You can apply it directly to the skin and rinse afterwards with water.
Getting your sweat on may not seem like it’s an ideal at home skin treatment, but it has major benefits to the skin. In addition to releasing toxins, sweating can help shed dirt and bacteria from the skin. To help unclog your pores, you might try getting sweaty first.
But if you’re ready to take your skin care to the next level, and get skin care treatments from the pros, you should find a med spa that offers the following:
Look for a med spa that offers radiofrequency microneedling (RF microneedling), which is a non-surgical treatment that uses individual needles to send radiofrequency energy to the skin. You probably weren’t expecting that needles could be good for your face, but believe it or not, these little needles help to firm up the skin and tighten by encouraging the body to build collagen and elastin.
RF microneedling is minimally invasive and you can go straight home afterwards. Most find they are able to tolerate the treatment well and have little downtime. You might experience some redness or roughness, but that should be temporary.
You can also try nanofractional radiofrequency, known as nanofractional RF, into your skin care beauty regimen. Nanofractional RF uses needles that are less than 1mm to deliver multi polar radiofrequency energy beneath the surface of your skin. This heats the skin and stimulates both collagen and elastin fibers as well. The benefits of this med spa treatment for skin rejuvenation includes smoother and firmer skin, and who doesn’t want that? After your treatment, you should expect to experience just some initial redness and dryness, but this typically subsides after a week or less.
Fractional CO2 Technology
If you just want to focus on a specific area of your skin, fractional CO2 laser treatment can focus on just the areas of the skin that need help while leaving the healthiest areas of skin untouched. Fractional CO2 laser skin resurfacing “scatters” light beams of energy deep into the skin, and the resurfacing potential of fractional CO2 can help produce dramatic results. For the next few days after your fractional CO2 laser treatment, you can expect to feel like you have a mild sunburn.
Whether it’s getting your sweat on, using mayonnaise as a mask, or having tiny needles prod your face, these treatments, that may sound gross to some, can actually help keep your skin in tip-top shape. So for the best med spa treatments for skin rejuvenation, try adding mayonnaise, sweaty workouts, and RF microneedling, Nanofractional RF, and Fractional CO2 technology to your beauty arsenal.
