What Should I Expect from Anti-Aging Facial Treatments?

Thanks to the wonders of science and innovation by skin care professionals, you can choose from a wide range of anti-aging treatments. You need not have wrinkles or discoloration to actively participate in an anti-aging regime — many savvy consumers are already caring for and protecting their skin early in life. Consumers today are opting for minimally invasive procedures to avoid downtime and the unmistakable appearance of having had surgery. What people may notice after your treatments with your Skin Therapist at Spatique is simply that you seem healthier, happier, less tired, and much more confident. Some anti-aging treatments your Skin Therapist will be able to provide you are a wide variety of enzyme facials, Dermafile™, chemical exfoliation, microcurrent treatments, and phototherapy. Your Skin Therapist is also trained in a host of other treatments that, while not strictly anti-aging, go a long way toward making you feel more attractive.  These include all natural hair removal using the art of body sugaring, makeup application, lash and brow tinting and lash extensions.


Who can benefit from Anti-Aging Treatments?
Anyone who is wise enough to use sunscreen is already participating in an anti-aging regimen, but there is so much more you can do!  Treatment recommendations will vary according to skin type and condition, skin maturity, level of sun damage (everyone has some), and the goals you have for your appearance.  Your Skin Therapist can outline your options and make recommendations.


How Should I Prepare for My Anti-Aging Treatments?
Be ready to fill out a health questionnaire and describe what medications and skin care products you are currently using.  Your therapist will do an analysis of your skin, look for any interactions between products and medications, and devise a treatment plan that is suitable for your skin type and condition. If possible, come to your first appointment without anything on your skin; otherwise your skin care professional will cleanse your skin.  Start your care when you are ready to commit to a series of treatments and a home care regimen.


What Should I Expect From My Anti-Aging Treatments?
The results of your treatment may be obvious right away, or they may take some time to achieve.  This depends entirely on your program and the modalities used.  Your Skin Therapist will be able to outline realistic goals for you.  In some cases, skin is in poor condition and needs to be strengthened and conditioned before anti-aging treatments can be performed.  If you are suffering from acne, dermatitis, or rosacea, you may have to set your anti-aging goals aside until these issues have been addressed.  The good news is you may gain younger looking skin as a side benefit of clearing and treating these conditions.


What About Home Care?
Your Skin Therapist can provide the best guidance on caring for your skin at home after a treatment.  Spatique offers a clinical line of products available for your use.  Committing to a home care regimen is paramount to maximize your investment in the treatments your therapist provides.
