A world of professional skin care services tailored to your one-of-a-kind needs
Damage to our skin accumulates over time and results from an array of sources — spanning harmful UV radiation from the sun’s rays and tanning beds to irritants and pollutants in our environment. Led by a leader in whole-body health and wellness, Dr. Saima Jehangir, the professionals at Alchemy Wellness can quite literally lift all of that damage away, regardless of how it presents and manifests, and we can do so without the use of invasive surgeries. In turn, our valued patients from across the Austin, Texas, area can enjoy often dramatic results from our myriad professional skin care services without the risk, downtime, and demands for recovery and healing.
In general, this process can be categorized as “skin resurfacing.” Various products and tools may be used to encourage cell turnover, stimulate the production of beneficial natural substances (like collagen), and help other medical-grade skin care products to be better absorbed and more effective. Depending on your unique needs, goals, and characteristics, one of the following services may be on the horizon or, as your skin changes, other services may be in your future:
- Mechanical skin resurfacing includes microdermabrasion, which involves exfoliating a very thin layer of skin by using a device that sucks up or lightly polishes off the dead skin cells responsible for a sallow, tired, wrinkled, and spotted complexion.
- Chemical skin resurfacing largely spans the application of ingredients such as retinol, salicylic acid, and TCA (like a VI Peel) to exfoliate dry, discolored, acne-prone, and otherwise “aged” skin.
- Resurfacing with facials may include a blend of skin-friendly ingredients, as well as deep cleansing, exfoliating, steaming, massage, masks, and other steps and products to bring clear, glowing, youthful, and healthy skin to the surface.
There are numerous facials available, which may be tailored to your unique needs. For instance, for those experiencing signs of aging, an anti-aging facial includes the application of powerful serums, eye treatment, and a burst of hydration to moisturize thirsty skin, which can make us look so much older. Or, an express treatment can unclog pores and be completed in as little as 15 minutes.
It should also be noted that Dr. Jehangir has invested in a wide range of technologies to aid in resurfacing aging, lackluster, and tired skin. So, laser-assisted resurfacing may be a viable option, too.
