How should I choose the medi/cosmetic skin care spa that’s right for me?
Not all skin care/medi-spas are the same and similarly named procedures they offer can be drastically different from one spa to the next. Our Elegance Derma System is developed from a culture derived from years of dermatological experience. At Elegance Derma Spa, we provide our patients with a thorough consultation to determine the services and products that are safe and effective for each individual’s skin types.
Is it ever too late to reverse skin damage due to sun exposure and aging?
While there are many causes of skin damage in addition to harmful rays from the sun, such as smoking, poor diet, stress, lack of exercise, exposure to cold and excess alcohol consumption, the good news is that there are cutting-edge treatments available today that can definitely help “turn back the hands of time”. Elegance Derma Spa offers treatments such as IPL, micro-needling, lasers, Botox and fillers that can make amazing improvements to one’s appearance at any age. Determining the correct procedure for each individual’s skin type is the key to attaining desirable results to ‘gently soften the aging process’.
What are the benefits of Botox and what kind of results should I expect?
Botox, a non-surgical solution to anti-aging, works by blocking the nerves that contract muscles, softening the appearance of wrinkles in the forehead, neck area and around the mouth. It’s also proven to be able to ‘lift’ the eyebrow area for a more youthful appearance. Added health benefits of Botox include decreasing excessive sweating and relief from migraine headaches.
How can I eliminate facial wrinkles and fine lines?
Facial wrinkles and fine lines can be caused by over exposure to the sun, smoking, stress and excessive alcohol consumption. Micro-needling is a revolutionary new procedure that creates invisible micro-perforations that stimulate the production of collagen, enhancing the production of healthy new skin. This treatment reduces the appearance of fine lines, acne scarring, and promotes overall tightening of the skin.
