Vitalogy Skincare invites you to try our “Vitaglow” treatment. It combines a BroadBand Light (BBL) treatment with microneedling. This combination will treat pigmentation issues caused by sun damage and aging skin, plus allow your skin to increase collagen production and improve skin texture. It is a great way to transition your skin into the Fall, especially after a sweltering summer. This October, our Vitaglow combo treatment is on special for $599 (full price is $825), so there is no better time to treat yourself to these two skin care experiences.
And to round off your refreshed skin, our product special is a complementary IMAGE MD® restoring lip enhancer with purchase.
So, what do these two treatments involve?
Photorejuvenation BroadBand Light (BBL®)
BroadBand Light (BBL®) Phototherapy by Sciton® is a phototherapy procedure known as Forever Young® BBL. It allows us to precisely treat brown and red pigmentation caused by sun damage and aging skin. This treatment can also reduce the flushing of rosacea, and it can be used on the face, neck, chest, and hands. How does BBL work? It releases bursts of light energy that delicately raise the temperature of the skin’s outer layers. This light energy is taken up inside the skin by specific targets, such as tiny, damaged blood vessels responsible for redness, brown spots, or pigmented lesions due to excessive melanin production. This scientific and biological mechanism effectively eradicates the target, thereby removing imperfections from the skin and bringing it back to its innate beauty. This process evens out your skin’s natural hues, revitalizing its appearance and texture resulting in a more youthful and vibrant complexion.
The BBL treatment is gentle, noninvasive, and safe. Generally, there is no need for a topical anesthetic, but your Aesthetician may choose to use it on more sensitive areas.
Some of the common skin issues that Forever Young BBL can treat include:
- Sun Damage – Forever Young BBL can effectively target and reduce the appearance of sunspots, freckles, and other signs of sun damage on the skin.
- Age Spots – It can also be used to fade age spots or brown spots on the skin, often caused by sun exposure and aging.
- Uneven Skin Tone – If you have an uneven skin tone or redness (such as rosacea), Forever Young BBL can help to improve skin color and tone.
- Fine Lines and Wrinkles – By stimulating collagen production, BBL can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, leading to smoother and more youthful-looking skin.
- Acne – In some cases, Forever Young BBL may be used to target acne and reduce the redness associated with active breakouts.
- Broken Blood Vessels – It can also target and reduce the appearance of broken blood vessels or spider veins on the skin’s surface.
Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure that involves using a device with fine, sterile needles to create controlled micro-injuries on the skin’s surface. This procedure is also known as collagen induction therapy. Here’s how microneedling typically works:
A microneedling device creates tiny, controlled punctures or microchannels in the skin. These micro-injuries stimulate the body’s natural healing response. As the skin heals from these micro-injuries, it begins to produce collagen and elastin, two proteins that are essential for maintaining the skin’s firmness, elasticity, and youthful appearance. This increased collagen and elastin production can help improve the texture and overall quality of the skin.
Microneedling can be used to address a variety of skin concerns, including:
– Fine lines and wrinkles
– Acne scars
– Enlarged pores
– Stretch marks
– Uneven skin tone
– Sun damage
– Skin laxity
At Vitalogy Skincare, we offer the following treatments for your microneedling needs:
Microneedling with Hyaluronic Acid:When microneedling is paired with hyaluronic acid, a powerful moisture-binding ingredient, it provides the benefit of adding plumpness and hydration into the skin and preventing visible signs of aging.
Microneedling with Platelet-Rich Plasma: When microneedling is paired with platelet-rich plasma, a concentrated mixture of platelets from your own blood, it offers the benefit of delivering proteins into the skin that support cell growth and healing broader and deeper scars and injuries.
To take advantage of our October Vitaglow special, it is essential to meet with one of our experienced Licensed Aestheticians so they can customize the treatment to meet your needs. The special is good from October 1, 2023 through October 31, 2023.
