In my experience as an esthetician in Aspen, I’ve come to notice something. When guests come to Heaven on Earth, they seem to have a basic understanding of what they want – maybe they want to be pampered with a massage, or maybe just sit back and enjoy a facial.
I’ve hand-selected every service on my menu because I know just what the benefits of each service are. My guests are especially surprised by the outcomes of the oxygen facial. They know how amazing they’ll feel after a general “day at the spa.” But there are two services my guests might not know go hand in hand with each other and I’ll talk about them a little today: dermaplaning and microneedling.
First, let’s talk about microneedling.
No, don’t be scared!
Microneedling is actually not as scary as you think and it helps your skin produce collagen. I’m sure you’ve heard of collagen before – it’s in all the television commercials for skincare products. But if you’re considering microneedling in Aspen, I know you’ll want to know a bit more.
Collagen is the glue that holds us together. It’s in our tendons and ligaments and our fat cells, and people with a collagen deficiency are more likely to look in the mirror and see a slackening in the face, crows’ feet, laugh lines and, well, just general wrinkles.
So, what does this have to do with microneedling in Aspen? Well, it’s actually pretty simple. Our bodies produce collagen as a response to injury.
When you come in as my guest for a microneedling session, I’m going to massage your skin with a numbing agent. This will prevent you from feeling anything but a slight pressure (almost like a cat licking you) on your skin. Then, I’ll place my microneedling tool over your skin to create tiny microtears.
As a part of the service, I’ll also apply a serum of stem cell cultures and peptides that encourage your body to renew and regenerate … in other words, to heal!
Microneedling and dermaplaning in Aspen go hand in hand. In fact, I recommend that my guests schedule a dermaplaning facial with me around two weeks after a microneedling treatment.
So, what’s so great about dermaplaning? Well, you’ll have to see it to believe it. When you come in for your dermaplaning facial, I’ll use a tiny esthetician’s scalpel to gently graze the very top layer of your skin.
I added this service to my menu because it carries so many benefits! The most immediate difference my guests notice is that there’s no more “peach fuzz” on their face. That, on its own, can make your face look brighter and more luminous.
I’m also offerering dermaplaning in Aspen because of its long-term benefits. Dermaplaning immediately gets rid of the dead skin cells on the surface of your face that cause your skin to look dull. Guests also notice that, with subsequent facials, they’re less likely to experience acne and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles is diminished. As an added benefit, your skincare product is more readily absorbed into your skin, allowing your lotions and sunscreens to be more effective.
I mentioned that I encourage my guests to schedule a dermaplaning facial two weeks after their microneedling treatment. That’s because dermaplaning can help to exfoliate any “leftover” skin that resulted from the microneedling. The final result is the emergence of the bright and beautiful complexion that’s been hiding beneath the surface!
Caring for Your Skin After Your Service
Guests who enjoy microneedling and dermaplaning services will notice that their skin feels a bit tight and “sunburned” after treatments. I make sure you’re taken care of!
When you come in for a microneedling treatment, it’s recommended to apply sunscreen immediately after. I’ll send you home with a sun hat to protect your beautiful skin, and we can discuss products that work with your skin to give you the results you’re looking for before you leave.
Your dermaplaning facial may leave your skin slightly red. But that doesn’t mean you have to hide! Before you leave, I’ll apply a product called Suntegrity Impeccable Skin. This product is slightly tinted to match your natural skin shade, and will allow you to go out and about without any self-consciousness. It’s also got great benefits to your skin, including antioxidant protection, sunscreen and smoothing peptides.
If you have any questions, please let me know either when you book or at the time of your appointment! When you book your dermaplaning appointment at the time of our microneedling session you’ll get a special rate.
