Glowing Skin Is Always In!
By: Stephanie Diliberto • Posted on September 24, 2020
Since the COVID-19 pandemic has begun, many people are feeling an increase of anxiety and stress. This “new normal” has required many of us to wear a mask for hours throughout the day.
“Maskne” is the term used for acne caused by masks and stress. It’s important for us to take extra care of our skin and having an effective skin regimen can help lessen irritation, help prevent clogged pores and fight acne.
The great news is there are excellent remedies to help keep your skin clean and clear during these trying times. And even if you are not stressed, it is just wonderful to pamper yourself and improve your skin and your appearance.
Skin Care Treatments
The Cleveland Clinic Department of Aesthetics offers a wide range of skin care treatments and product lines to help you achieve maximum results. Our Aestheticians provide a wide range of services including skin consultations, chemical peels, facials, and dermaplaning and acne treatments.
Exfoliation is one of the more popular services as it removes dead skin cells on the skin’s most outer layer. As your skin is constantly repairing and replacing itself, exfoliating helps increase the turnover of these cells, unclogging the pores while improving texture for a more radiant and brightened appearance.
The newest service available that we are excited to announce is the Diamond Glow, a skin resurfacing treatment that combines exfoliation, extraction, and infusion to improve the health and appearance of the skin.
This treatment helps improve fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, clogged pores, dry skin and rough texture.
It is customized by infusing five different options of serums, including:
- Hydrating for dry skin
- Brightening for dullness
- Pore clarifying to help purify clogged pores and acne
- Vitamin C a strong antioxidant
- TNS Advanced Serum for fine lines and anti-aging
These 5 serums penetrate active ingredients deeper into the skin to provide you optimal results.
Unique to you, this customizable treatment begins with a deep cleansing, exfoliation and continues with a personalized masque and finishes with a luxurious moisturizer. Radiance is beautifully awakened.
Non-invasive resurfacing procedure that includes a thorough exfoliation, chemical peel, extractions and an infusion of antioxidants and hyaluronic acid to plump, hydrate and protect the skin. No downtime.
Dermablading with customized mask
Micro-exfoliation of the top layer of the epidermis. This technique smooths the texture of the skin and could remove superficial facial hair. This is a quick service with no downtime. Can be added to select treatments.
