Glowing Skin for the New Year

Not everyone is lucky enough to be born with flawless skin. Although there are some things that you can do on your own at home, most of us need a little help now and then. Minimally invasive treatment techniques are growing in popularity right now. These treatments have the advantage of providing significant results with relatively little expense, few side effects, and no requirement for downtime.

Home Skin Care Routine

The foundation for glowing skin starts at home with your diet and skin care routine. If you have been slacking in this department, the new year is a great time to reestablish good habits. In addition to eating a healthy diet full of fresh fruits and vegetables, the main thing that you can do at home to support healthy, youthful skin is to always remember to moisturize because dry skin is more susceptible to damage and wrinkle formation. The best time to moisturize is right after your bath or shower when your skin has already soaked in a good deal of moisture. Lock in all of that moisture by following up with a good moisturizer that does not irritate your skin.


Sometimes no amount of home skin care will suffice. Microdermabrasion is a popular skin care treatment in which we use microscopic abrasives to gently scrub the surface of your skin where dead skin cells can build up over time. Once this inorganic material is removed, the natural glow of your skin is revealed. Making microdermabrasion a regular part of your beauty regimen helps to ensure that that skin cells do not again obscure your skin’s natural radiance.

Chemical Peels

The precise details of your chemical peel treatment depend upon the type of peel that will be performed. Generally, a chemical solution will be applied to your skin in the treatment area and left on for a certain amount of time. After this time has passed, it will be rinsed away and neutralized.

The results of your chemical peel may take some time to develop. In the case of a light peel, results can be almost immediate. For medium and deep chemical peels, you will need to wait a few weeks or months while your skin heals and remodels itself. This results in the development of new skin tissue displaying fewer imperfections and more radiance that makes you appear healthier and more youthful.
