Pores

Why does the skin have pores?

Pores are small openings in the skin that release oils and sweat. The pores are also connected to the follicles. Pores may appear larger due to oily skin, increased sebum production, and acne.

Why do some people have bigger pores than others?

The size of the pore is determined by the amount of oil your skin produces. The more oil the skin produces the more the follicle and the pores stretch to accommodate the amount of oil being secreted. Follicles that are clogged with keratinized cells and fatty materials will have larger pores due to the stretching of the follicle walls from the amount of debris in the canal.

How to reduce pore size?

Microneedling is a safe and effective method to reduce the appearance of enlarged pores. The micro injuries to the skin caused by microneedling trigger the skin’s own wound healing response. The skin then naturally produces new collagen and elastin. Collagen creates the appearance of smaller pores and tighter skin.

Other ways to help minimize pore size include using sunscreen, exfoliating, and being gentle with your skin. It is important to use sunscreen because the more damaged your skin is, the less firmness it has. When the skin starts to lose its firmness, pores look more noticeable. Exfoliating your skin may also make pore size look smaller. Most importantly, you need to be gentle with your skin. Scrubbing, picking , and squeezing can irritate the skin causing the pores to look larger and become more visible. With the right skincare you can minimize the appearance of your pore size.

Benefits of Chemical Peeling

What is a chemical peel?

A chemical peel is a technique used to improve the appearance of the skin. During the process, a chemical solution is applied to the surface of the skin and is left on for typically 3 to 5 minutes. The solution is intended to exfoliate the skin and once peeled off, helps to remove dry, dull skin cells.

 

Benefits of Chemical Peeling

Chemical peels help rejuvenate the skin by removing the dead, unwanted skin on the surface. The result is smoother, more radiant, and less wrinkled skin. Chemical peels are good for treating fine lines, wrinkles, large pores, and dark spots, as well as tightening the area of the skin in the process. Chemical peels are also useful in treating certain types of acne, reducing the appearance of age spots, malasma, and freckles- and softening the surface of skin.

 

 

Important things to know

After a chemical peel the skins surface is much more sensitive to the sun. It is important to wear sunscreen for the next new weeks following the treatment. It is common to experience redness after a chemical peel for up to 7 days, that appears similar to that of a sunburn. Scaling is also common and will flake away with the redness. The procedure should be done every 4 to 6 weeks to see the best results.

The Do’s and Dont’s of Microneedling

DON’T:

-schedule your appointment for the day after the beach. It is important to avoid sun exposure for at least 24 hours leading up to your appointment, to ensure that your skin is in the right condition to have microneedling done. Any signs of sunburn beforehand can cause unwanted pain and irritation, and may hinder the desired result.

-get Botox or fillers within 2 weeks of getting microneedling done. Not only can the Botox prevent the procedure from being effective, but the needles may effect the Botox and fillers as well. To make sure you are getting the most out of your treatments, make sure to plan at least 2 weeks between these two types of appointments.

-have any laser treatments or laser peels 3 to 4 weeks leading up to your appointment. It is important that your skin have time to heal properly before receiving microneedling. If the skin is still healing the effects of microneedling may be harmful to the skins surface, or cause more damage.

-receive a microneedling treatment if you have any signs of cold sores around that area. Not only can the needles cause redness and irritation to the sore, but they may cause it to spread to other areas of the skin.

-schedule an appointment if you have any pertaining heart, liver, or kidney conditions, without first consulting with your doctor. Although mirconeedling is beneficial to many people, individuals with these types of health conditions may be at risk during the procedure.

DO:

-drink lots of water before and after your microneedling session. If the skin is dehydrated before your procedure it may effect the results or cause the area to be less reactive. It is normal after microneedling to experience redness and peeling on the region that was worked on. If your skin doesn’t react in this way, it may be a sign that you aren’t drinking enough water.

-come in with a make-up free face that is ready to be treated. Although your esthetician will cleanse your face before the procedure, it is more beneficial to have your make up already removed so that they can go straight to treating the skin.

-stay away from direct sunlight for 7 days. After microneedling the skin is extremely sensitive and it is important to give it enough time to heal. Not only will the area be more susceptible to sunburn during this time, but it may cause damage to the skin which could produce opposite results than those desired.

-perform proper aftercare following your appointment. It is recommended not to wear make up for 24 hours after  microneedling. It is also crucial to apply sunscreen to the skin when entering the sun and continuing to drink enough water during the days following. Performing proper aftercare will ensure you get the most beneficial results.

-call your esthetician  if you have any questions or concerns. We are here to help!

Microneedling with Hydra Beauty facial

What is a Hydra Beauty facial?

  • A Hydra Beauty facial is a treatment that simultaneously deep cleanses, exfoliates, extracts and hydrates the faceremoving impurities and leaving the skin with a radiant glow
  • During the procedure the skin is infused with hyaluronic acid which holds 1000 times it weight in water
  • Hyaluronic acid helps to lock in moisture while regulating inflammation levels and promoting wound healing to create a healthier complexion
  • When applied to the surface of the skin it can also assist in the anti-aging process and help reduce fine lines and wrinkles
  • In addition to the 3 steps process of the Hydra Beauty treatment we include oxygen infusion and PDT light therapy, as well as the option of micro-current therapy (a non-surgical face lift)
  • The oxygen infusion replenishes the skin with pure oxygen, vitamins and minerals to help deepen the effects of hyaluronic acid and increase the levels of oxygen in the skin, while PDT light therapy helps to combat and prevent inflammatory acne

 

Benefits of Hydra Beauty facials in between Microneedling

  • Microneedling creates controlled microscopic punctures to stimulate the body’s natural healing process and in turn causes your body to create collagen and elastin, which are key components in anti-aging
  • This can cause side effects such as redness and dry skin, which in alternation with a Hydra Beauty facial can be significantly reduced
  • Hydra Beauty facials can also help to create an extra boost in stimulating collagen and elastin which will enhance the effects of a microneedling treatment
  • Because hyaluronic acid plays a key role in wound repair, a Hydra Beauty facial will also help to speed up the healing process while deep cleansing to get rid of dead skin cells
  • For the most beneficial results it is recommended that a Hydra Beauty facial take place every 2 weeks after a micro needling treatment
