Linda’s Corner: Combining Treatments for Stellar Results

winter park aesthetics linda munizWhile my treatments and the tools I work with have improved immeasurably over the last few years, there’s still no one treatment that conquers everything. If there were, I’d be out of a job! But you probably already know that by now. Winter Park microneedling is a great way to improve your skin tone and texture. A peel helps eliminate dark spots and blemishes. Laser resurfacing helps to blast away wrinkles. Each of these treatments has an important place in your skincare regimen.

That’s why I absolutely love layering treatments for my patients. Often, when people come in for consultations, they think I’m just going to recommend one treatment and be done with it, but that’s not the case. Each of my patients has unique skin. Through our consultation, I develop a skincare program that targets all of your trouble spots, whether it takes one session or five.

Here are a couple of my favorite combos: 

 

  • Dermaplaning before microneedling. Dermaplaning uses a scalpel or a thin blade to remove the fine layer of skin and hair on the outer layer of the skin, known as the vellus. This procedure leaves a fresh layer of skin on top that’s ready to absorb any treatments or vitamins you put on it. Doing this before microneedling helps your serums and treatments to penetrate deeper when you need them to!
  • Oxygen and UV light before...just about anything! If you’ve ever been into my office before, you probably know how much I love the red and blue light treatment. This is a great mini-spa experience that allows my patients to relax and breathe deeply while they’re waiting for serums to absorb, killing bacteria all the while! Depending on what treatment you get, I may do the light treatment before or after.
  • Peels and laser treatments. This combo might not be one I do on the same day, but both are great parts of an overall treatment program to knock out wrinkles, dark marks, and odd texture. After your laser treatment has time to heal, you may notice your skin pushing out imperfections. A peel will scrub them all away from the outside, leaving you with vibrant, clean, and healthy skin in just a few days!

 

There’s no end to what kind of combinations I can think up with my skincare treatments for my patients. When I have the chance to examine your skin thoroughly, I’ll come up with a plan that addresses all of your needs.
