Is your skin red-carpet ready?
It’s Oscar weekend in Hollywood which has us wondering – Is your skin red carpet ready for your special event? Here are a few suggestions for some of our services and products that can have you looking your very best for any event.
4 – 6 weeks before:
Now is the time to start your body contouring and skin tightening treatments with Venus Freeze. This new multi polar thermal magnetic treatment will help tighten and tone any problem areas such as tummy, buttocks, thighs, arms, neck and face. Say good bye to those crow’s feet and laugh lines around your eyes and that loose skin under the chin! IPL / Photofacial treatments can address any hyper-pigmentation, sun & age spots and spider veins and give you a clearer, firmer complexion. If you are inclined, now is also the time to have your Botox and Juvederm treatments to address loss of volume in the face, nasal labial folds and forehead furrows. How about a mini lip treatment to plump up your lips? Your skin technician can advise you on the best time for these procedures to compliment your other treatments. (It is best not to schedule injectable and filler treatments in the same week as other rejuvenation treatments). A great at-home skin care regime works in tandem with your rejuvenation treatments and will prolong and protect your results. Your technician can customize a skin care program for you and help select the very best products from Vivier Pharma and Celezome that will address your specific skin concern and augment any products you are currently using. And don’t forget, sunscreen is a year-round essential for everyone to maintain skin health! We carry a large selection of clinical grade broad-spectrum UVA/UVB/UVC and SPF protection products for face and body that are non- comedogenic and suitable for all skin types, including oily and acne prone.
3 – 4 weeks before:
Plan for an exfoliating treatment such as HydraFacial, microdermabrasion or a chemical peel. This will remove the skin’s outer layers and leave you glowing. We LOVE our HydraFacial! If you haven’t tried one yet, what are you waiting for? HydraFacial combines cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, and hydration – all while delivering antioxidants, Hyaluronic Acid, peptides and other essential nutrients. The HydraFacial can have many skin benefits including enhanced skin tone and texture, reduced appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, hyper-pigmentation, and improved appearance of oily or acne-prone skin. It’s and ideal treatment to pair with other rejuvenation treatments such as Venus Freeze, IPL / Photofacials and dermal fillers. Your back, neck and décolleté can also benefit from a HydraFacial – especially important for any skin-revealing gowns. (You don’t need to wait for a special occasion – make HydraFacial a part of your regular health care regime and be amazed by the results!)
7 – 10 days before:
This is a good time to schedule your next laser hair removal treatment. This will allow the hair captured in the active growth stage to fall out of the hair follicle that was damaged by your laser treatment – leaving you smooth and hair free for your event.
2 days before:
Time for an all over body exfoliation with Celazome’s Gly-Body Treatment Kit. This body exfoliating wash and lotion is a dynamo trio-combo of Glycolic Acid to remove dead skin cell build-up, Salicylic Acid for micro-exfoliating action that causes a slow movement of superficial cells, forcing deep layers to be replaced with younger cells, and Green Tea Extract, an antioxidant and bacteriostatic agent that suppresses inflammation and irritation. Your skin will be soft and smooth. Great for all skin types, this kit comes with a body exfoliating buff and is packaged in a smart canvas tote. Now that your skin is sloughed and smooth, consider an application of Celazome Inside Tan to give your skin a sun-kissed glow. Inside Tan is fast drying with a light pleasant fragrance, is non-oily and applies non-streaky while leaving your skin moisturized. It will not rub off on your bedding or clothing. One application will leave you with a healthy, natural looking colour. Your skin will glow from head to toe!
