It’s the start of awards season in Hollywood, but for the rest of us — it’s rounding out the end of Winter and preparing for Spring. Maybe you won’t be walking a red carpet anytime soon, however you can still look ready to! This month we’re celebrating the Golden Globes with our very own Go and Glow procedure!
The winner this year is you: Here’s what you need to know about the movie star treatment.
To start your Go and Glow, we’ll begin with a 30 minute laser facial. Laser facials are a great “pre-juvenation” that is a gentler form of our standard resurfacing treatment. The treatment uses a non-ablative technology that gently encourages renewal of the outer layer of skin (epidermis), while at the same time treats the deeper layer (dermis) and stimulates collagen production.
Collagen is a fibrous protein found naturally in the skin that is responsible for skin strength and elasticity — aka what gives the skin its structure and plumpness. As we age, our collagen production naturally slows down which results in lax skin and visible fine lines. By sending the skin a signal to increase collagen production, your skin literally repairs itself to give you that youthful glow. Hence, the term “pre-juvenation”, with the goal of preserving collagen production.
This makes a laser facial the ultimate one-two punch. Not only will the epidermal renewal help to immediately treat texture and tone, but over time your skin will appear plumper and fine lines will be diminished, giving you that “Golden Glow”. Just be sure to have patience — collagen production takes up to 12 weeks.
How does it feel getting the treatment and what can you expect? This treatment may feel mildly uncomfortable, which is lessened by a numbing cream prior to the procedure to ensure your comfort. Immediately following the procedure you may experience some mild redness or swelling that will subside in a few days. Afterward, your skin will feel softer and have improved tone for a more youthful, radiant glow.
This treatment provides the best results with monthly sessions of 4-6 treatments. The exact number of treatments needed will be tailored to your individual skin and will be discussed during your consultation.
Because laser facials are so non-intrusive and restorative, they make for a great tandem treatment. The remainder of your Go and Glow treatment will be centered on a soothing and relaxing mask from one of our favorite medical grade brands, ZO.
Following your Go and Glow laser treatment we’ll send you home to have your very own relaxing movie night masque. The ZO Skin Health Ossential Brightening Masque produces genuine brightening effects to contribute to a more even skin tone in a gentle manner, all from the comfort of your home. It’s filled with citric, salicylic and lactic acids which all contribute to brightening and evening the skin for restored skin clarity, reduces pigmentation and discolouration.
The final results from both the laser facial and the masque will have your skin looking premiere-ready, even if you’re just hanging out on the couch with wine and a snack. For only $400, you can have the celebrity treatment without the celebrity price tag and when you buy a series of six we’ll throw in our signature ZO Go and Glow kit – complete with deluxe travel Daily Power Defense!
