Here are some skin concerns and conditions that our Estheticians are equipped to address using our Éminence Organic products!

Acne / Breakout prone

Acne can affect skin at any age from adolescent to adult. It is usually characterized by oily to normal skin that persistently breaks out, is clogged, reactive and is sometimes inflamed. Acne is caused by a number of factors such as dirt and pollution on the skin’s surface, stress, an unbalanced diet, hormonal fluctuations and the overproduction of sebum, which is a naturally produced oil. The good news is that it can be alleviated over time by controlling stress, getting regular exercise to remove toxins from the body, following a healthy diet, and using natural organic skin care to keep skin clear and healthy.

Rosacea / redness

Sometimes confused with acne, rosacea often shows on the skin as an inflammation and reddening on the nose, forehead, cheekbone or chin. Inflamed capillaries on the skin’s surface give the complexion a red, blotchy or bumpy appearance. Rosacea is usually a genetic condition, but certain factors are known to aggravate it. Avoiding hot liquids, alcohol, the sun and extreme temperatures plus using products designed to help calm skin will help to clear irritations and control redness.

Signs of Aging

The telltale signs of aging include wrinkles and sagging skin. Two of the biggest skin woes, these conditions are a direct result of the body’s aging process. Natural collagen production slows with age and the skin appears less plump. While aging happens to everyone, there are ways to minimize the appearance and development of fine lines and wrinkles. The best long-term prevention for all skin types is a healthy lifestyle, daily sun protection, and a targeted skin care regimen.

Hyperpigmentation / uneven skin tone

Defined by the appearance of dark spots, freckles, scarring or an uneven skin tone, hyperpigmentation can affect any skin type and has a large spectrum of severity. Identified by an increase in melanin production in the skin, it is a universal skin condition. Environmental factors, stress, aging and post-inflammatory pigmentation are all factors in skin tone changes and coloration. Protect from future damage with SPF and seek products and treatments specifically designed to fade dark spots and hyperpigmentation.

Large Pores

Regardless of age or gender, the appearance of large pores is a common skin concern. Pores are used by the body to distribute skin-softening sebum (commonly referred to as “oil”). While everyone has visible pores, some naturally produce more oil, resulting in larger pores. Sebum also oxidizes when it reaches the skin’s surface, causing pores to become visible and appear larger. Pore size may increase with age as the skin loses elasticity. With regular cleansing and gentle exfoliation, sebum is removed from the skin’s surface, resulting in less visible pores.

Eye Area

The skin surrounding the eyes is seven times thinner than the skin around the rest of the face. This naturally delicate skin is very susceptible to the effects of sun exposure, aging, lack of nutrition and dehydration. The skin around the eyes reflects the slightest imbalance in skin health and is also prone to wrinkles, dark circles and puffiness. As the eyes are one of the most expressive features, daily hydration, weekly eye masques and even light exfoliation with specific, targeted products will ensure this unique zone of the face remains firm and toned.

Lack of Firmness

Just like muscles throughout the body, the muscles under the surface of the complexion can lose tone. When muscle fibers and elastin lengthen as a result of aging, lifestyle and nutrition, the skin then appears to sag. Dehydrated skin can also appear to droop around the eyes and jawline. A consistent, targeted skin care regimen and regular facial massage are key ways to keep skin healthy and firm.

Sun Damage

Spending too much time in the sun can result in both temporary and long term damage to the skin. One of the most common conditions as a result of sun exposure is immediate dehydration and painful, itchy redness. Extensive sun exposure over time can also permanently stretch small blood vessels, creating a red and blotchy complexion. To prevent negative effects as a result of sun exposure, keep the skin protected and hydrated when spending time in a the sun.

Dermaplaning Facials at Massage Works Fort Wayne!

Dermaplaning is a simple and safe procedure for exfoliating the face and ridding of fine vellus hairs (peach fuzz).  During a Dermaplaning facial, we use a sterile surgical scalpel specially designed for the face to gently remove the top layer of dead skin.  This method is more gentle, yet even deeper exfoliating than microdermabrasion.

Dermaplaning is a method of exfoliation that consists of using a 10 gauge scalpel to gently scrape off the top layer of dulling dead skin cells in order to reveal a smoother and brighter complexion

Results Include:

  • smoother skin
  • removes fine facial hair that traps dirt and oil.
  • enhances the effectiveness of other skin treatments (chemical peels)
  • reduces acne scars
  • reduces fine lines
  • immediate results

WHO IS Dermaplaning FOR?

Dermaplaning is recommended for all skin types except those with acne prone skin. If you have deep cystic acne, wait until breakouts are clear before trying this treatment. As always, also discuss any allergies or skin sensitivities before starting a treatment.

This is a great treatment if you are pregnant or nursing and want exfoliation without the risk of harsh chemicals absorbing into the blood stream and potentially harming your baby.

HOW IS Dermaplaning DONE?

Dermaplaning is a painless procedure and can be compared to the sensation of shaving your legs, but in this case, it’s on your face.

First, the aesthetician will cleanse and thoroughly dry your skin. Next, she’ll pull an area of your skin taut with one hand, and hold a sterile 10 gauge blade at a 45 degree angle in the other hand and use short, swift strokes to scrape off dead skin cells as well as any small hairs

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?

About 30 minutes

What is the average cost of Dermaplaning?

Massage Works offers this service in combination with our Signature Éminence Organic Facial for $85 for an hour, while most Dermaplaning services typically cost $100 to $200 elsewhere

WHAT ARE THE SIDE EFFECTS OF Dermaplaning?

There are no side effects and zero downtime. After the treatment, your skin will be highly sensitive to sun exposure and may already look very pink, so be sure to wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher to reduce the risk of hyperpigmentation.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF Dermaplaning?

You’ll immediately look more radiant with a more even skin tone and texture. All of your peach fuzz will be gone, which is why first-timers say their skin has never felt so soft before.

RECOMMENDED COURSE FOR OPTIMAL RESULTS?

Dermaplaning removes 21 days worth of dead skin cells, so it’s best to allow the skin to complete its rejuvenation cycle before your next treatment.

 

Hard vs. Soft Wax Hair Removal

Waxing

Summertime bikinis, short shorts, and tank tops means some special attention to hair removal needs to be taken into consideration. Over the years numerous articles and bits of information on hair removal have been published promising the best advise on how to get rid of unwanted hair. The two most low cost ways, shaving and waxing, still prevail to be the most popular methods of removing hair. While shaving can be done on your own and at home, regular maintenance can be tedious. Waxing does cost more up front but results do last much longer, so the initial investment might actually spare you some money in the long run. Continue reading “Hard vs. Soft Wax Hair Removal”

Can a homemade facial replace a professional spa?

Homemade Facial VS Professional Skin Recommendation

Homemade facials and face masks are quick and relatively cheap. They also make us feel good about our self image. As you read this article the ingredients and house hold items needed to create a facial might even be in your own home. For example:

The Banana Facial is an all-natural, homemade facial that’s super cheap and takes little to no time to prepare. All you have to do is mash up a single banana and apply it evenly to your face. Let it sit for 10 minutes and then rinse it off your face with cold water. This remedy is rich in potassium and moisture; it’s supposed to leave your skin feeling hydrated and soft.

However there are benefits to seeking professional help for your skin conditions. Continue reading “Can a homemade facial replace a professional spa?”
