Skin care is not limited to the products you use to cleanse and moisturize your skin. At LUXURGERY on Fifth Avenue, we go above and beyond. When you visit with our experienced staff, you can gain a clear understanding of what you skin may need from one year to the next and from one season to the next. More importantly, you can benefit from personal aesthetic treatments such as microneedling, chemical peels, and facials. All are tailored to bring out the best in your skin.
Why Is Skin Care Important?
Professional skin care, not just daily maintenance, is important to how your skin ages. The earlier that you begin to receive customized facials and focused rejuvenating treatments, the more resilient and supple your skin will be through the years.
Skin care treatments range in their intensity and also in their capabilities. The variety of techniques used in our NYC facility are designed to combat fine lines and wrinkles, to protect the skin from environmental factors such as UV exposure, and to promote an inside-out glow. Professional care can also encompass management for chronic skin conditions such as rosacea and acne.
What Can Microneedling Do?
Microneedling is not the trendy new procedure it may seem. People all over the world have been performing this type of collagen therapy for centuries. As technique has been refined, the results of professional microneedling treatments have improved.
A microneedling treatment involves the use of a mechanized, needle-clad applicator tip. As the applicator is moved across numbed skin, tiny perforations are made in a precise pattern and level of depth (.5 to 2.5mm). These perforations, or micro-channels, induce a proliferation of healing collagen.
What Are the Benefits of Microneedling?
Collagen heals wounds by thickening the skin around it. This is beneficial to the individual with acne scars, with stretch marks, and for the person who wants to restore or support firmness as the skin ages. Professional microneedling is beneficial because we are able to reach greater depths with our adjustable applicator, and do so without pain. One treatment about once a year can be what the skin needs to stay firmer, brighter, and smoother.
What Are Chemical Peels?
Chemical peels are longstanding treatments in dermatology and aesthetic medicine that are designed to exfoliate the skin beyond what is possible at home. This customized treatment removes the outermost layers of skin tissue, which incites collagen and promotes optimal cellular turnover.
What Are the Benefits of Chemical Peels?
One of the benefits of chemical peel treatment is that it is tailored to particular needs. This method of deep exfoliation is suitable for the treatment of acne and acne scarring, for the prevention of premature aging and sun damage, and for generally supporting the healthiest possible turnover of skin cells. Peels need not be intense and deep in order to get results. Deeper chemical peels do achieve more dramatic results more quickly, but a light or medium peel obtained on a regular basis can also improve the overall vibrancy and texture of the skin.
What Are the Benefits of Facials?
Facials are often perceived as pampering treatments that we indulge in when we want to relax. Not so. Facials cleanse, exfoliate, and moisturize the skin in such a way that general and unique concerns can be addressed. Some facials are formulated to improve the health of the skin by unclogging pores and soothing inflamed acne. Some are performed to promote hydration that declines with age. There are numerous benefits to routine facials, all culminating in the fact that your skin can look better, feel better, and age better.
What Laser Treatments Are Available for Skin Rejuvenation?
LUXURGERY is equipped with a gentle erbium laser that is used for skin resurfacing. This treatment targets the superficial layers of tissue for mild ablation. As a result of this technique, healthy new skin cells take over the surface. Additionally, collagen production increases alongside more robust circulation through the epidermis. Laser skin resurfacing is popular among adults of all ages due to its capabilities for skin smoothing, tightening, and brightening. The laser can be employed in a more aggressive manner to give longer lasting and more dramatic results.
