While the winter has the tendency to make our skin look and feel dry and dull, don’t let it get you down, because Russak+ is here to help! Meredith Harris and Stephanie Broderick, our Medical Aestheticians and Laser Technicians have detailed the best treatments for all winter skin needs, to get your skin in tip top shape this holiday season. We’re all about glowing skin year round, and this winter is your time to *shine*!
For your instant glow: Hydrafacial+ with Dermaplaning
The HydraFacial+ is Russak+ Aesthetic Center’s signature customized facial treatment. The HydraFacial is an advanced hydrodermabrasion procedure that cleanses and exfoliates the skin, performs controlled and gentle extractions, and provides a powerful boost of hydration and care with peptides, hydrating ingredients and antioxidants that help protect the skin. At Russak+, we combine this popular treatment with dermaplaning for an extra level of skin rejuvenation. Dermaplaning involves manual exfoliation which removes dead skin cells and peach fuzz from the surface of the skin, which can cause a dull complexion and clog pores. Add on red or blue light (LED) or oxygen infusion is also available during this treatment. This facial is considered the ‘gold standard’ for a reason: Your skin will instantly look and feel fabulous. You will have that enviable ‘lit from within’ glow that’s impossible to replicate with makeup. Your skin will look plumped and hydrated, healthy, clear and feel silky smooth.
For your low downtime glow: Clear+Brilliant
Clear and Brilliant is a gentle resurfacing laser treatment, clinically proven to fight the effects of aging skin by helping to improve tone and texture, adding radiance, reducing wrinkles and pore size. It’s a perfect complement to individual beauty and lifestyle regimens as the results are both immediate as well as continuous. The treatment increases the skin’s ability to absorb skincare products, to allow all of your hydrating creams and serums to get where they need to be to give your skin its glow. Days after the treatment your skin will look brighter and more even, and will begin feeling softer. With a series of treatments, your skin will build collagen and will feel tighter, pores will appear smaller, and overall skin tone and texture will improve.
For your amped up glow: PRP Therapy
PRP is the holy grail of skin rejuvenation and gives the skin it’s ultimate glow. As involved as it sounds, this nonsurgical innovative rejuvenation is quite straightforward: Your own blood, in the form of platelet-rich plasma (PRP), is used to regenerate healthy, new skin tissue. A small amount of blood is drawn and spun down to separate the components. Red and white blood cells are divided from platelets and plasma (clear/gold fluid), leaving you with a higher concentration of platelets (PRP). Platelets contain hundreds of proteins called growth factors, which are very important in the healing of injuries. These regenerative qualities have been applied within aesthetic procedures, using PRP to repair photo-damaged and aging skin, stimulating fresh new tissue. PRP is plasma with many more platelets than what is typically found in blood. The concentration of platelets — and, thereby, the concentration of growth factors — can be 5 to 10 times greater than usual, providing intensive anti-aging restorative benefits and soft, radiant glowing skin for days.
