Which Facial is Right For You?
Your skin is unique, and so are your needs. If you’d like to have fresher, younger-looking skin that acts younger too, a facial is one of the most time-friendly methods to do that. With so many types of facials from which to choose, how do you find one that’s right for you?
At Elite Rejuvenation in Marion, Ohio, Adil Katabay, MD, and our team of medical and aesthetics experts offer a variety of facials that help you look and feel your absolute best. Although we help you choose the one that best serves your myriad needs, the guide below can help you find the ideal choice for your face right now.
Does your skin look gray, droopy, and tired?
If you’re battling the unwanted signs of aging, such as lackluster complexion, skin wrinkling, and drooping, you’d probably benefit most from a groundbreaking, state-of-the-art rejuvenation, such as a Vampire® Facial. The Vampire Facial doesn’t just rejuvenate the surface of your skin, it builds new blood vessels, too.
A Vampire Facial gets its power from the healing factors in your own blood. We take a small blood draw from your arm, then run it through a sterilized centrifuge to isolate the healing platelets. Platelets are the cell fragments your body uses to heal wounds.
We mix the concentrated platelets into a small amount of the liquid portion of your blood to create a healing serum. Next, we perform a procedure called microneedling that uses a single-use needle cartridge to create dozens of thin wound channels that reach into the lower layers of your skin.
Once your skin’s been microneedled, we brush on the Vampire serum so that it can drench the microwound channels. Deep within your skin, the concentrated platelets work with your own body’s healing processes to produce new collagen and blood vessels that enrich and rebuild your skin.
Your skin restructures itself over the next two to three months. Your “new” skin is thicker, healthier, firmer, and enriched with oxygen and blood — just like younger skin. You can expect the results to last for up to two years.
Are you troubled by acne, redness, or lackluster skin?
The SaltFacial™ combines natural sea-salt exfoliation with an ultrasound treatment and high-tech LED light therapy to improve skin quality and health. The SaltFacial consists of three steps:
First, your expert gently exfoliates the dead skin cells that dull your complexion with a high-tech, precision handpiece and organic sea salt crystals. The salt-based exfoliation reveals fresh, receptive new skin under the old, dulling layer. The salt also opens for your skin to accept the next step.
We apply antioxidants, peptides, and hyaluronic acid to the surface of your skin. We then use ultrasound energy to drive those nourishing ingredients deep into your fresh, new, receptive skin.
The combination of exfoliation with ultrasound makes your skin accept 30% more nutrients. The nutrients also travel up to twice as far into your skin, when compared to topical application alone.
The exfoliation process stimulates your body to create new collagen and elastin. The ultrasound-enhanced nutrients give your body the ingredients it needs to create fresher, stronger skin cells. But you aren’t done yet.
The final step of the SaltFacial is a multi-wavelength phototherapy LED treatment. The LED light not only promotes collagen production, it produces benefits such as:
Improves or reduces visible veins
The SaltFacial is safe for all skin types.
Do you want to look better each month?
If you’re troubled by deep lines and wrinkles, or facial scars — or just want a skin refresher every month — we recommend Pristine™ microdermabrasion. Pristine uses laser-cut diamond tips to gently polish the surface of your skin, while simultaneously vacuuming away the debris. Your treatment is customized to match your skin type.
Pristine is gentle enough to use every month, but creates dramatic enough results that you’ll notice a reduction in lines and increased brilliancy after just one treatment. As with all of our facials, Pristine stimulates your skin’s healing capabilities to keep you looking fresh and dewy for years to come.
Of course, the most wonderful attribute of facials is that you don’t have to stick with just one type for the rest of your life. You and your aesthetician can settle on one type of rejuvenating facial for this year — such as a Vampire facial — then switch to Pristine or a more basic facial for monthly aesthetic maintenance.
