Skincare is more than a beauty treatment. Skin is the largest organ in the body and offers the first level of protection against all external elements. It is natural to think of facial skin first and foremost, although the skin on other parts of the body must be given equal importance.
One of the most common skincare routines people go for is a facial. There are different types of facials, including chemical peels, microdermabrasion, hydradermabrasion, laser resurfacing, and so on. They all serve the same purpose of improving facial skin by removing blemishes. Blemishes can be either acne scars or dark spots. Facials are also performed for wrinkles and sagging skin.
Basics of Skincare
Taking care of our skin is more than important; it is necessary. We shed several skin cells throughout the day, and practicing a routine can keep our skin clean and hydrated.
Cleansing: With the increasing levels of air pollutants, it is no surprise that skin collects dirt and grime easily. Cleaning with a gentle solution ensuring that the dirt is removed without leaving your skin dry can help.
Toning: Toners help in soothing the skin after a wash and can also restore nutrients
Moisturizing: Moisturizers are essential to ensure that your skin does not become dry. Choosing the right moisturizer will depend on the skin type, you can choose the right moisturizer and use it after every wash.
Sunscreen: Dermatologists recommend special sunscreen lotions or creams, even on cloudy days. Broad-spectrum protection can prevent sun damage.
Exfoliating: While exfoliating is not for daily skincare routines, it can be done once a week to remove dead skin cells.
Types of Treatments
Chemical peels: Derma-peeling treatments are cosmetic and are done with the help of an anti-aging solution. Chemical peels help in correcting skin issues such as texture, wrinkles, and sun damage.
Microdermabrasion: It is a treatment that removes age spots and lighter scars. The skin is exfoliated through the use of crystals, and it helps remove the dead skin cells.
Hydradermabrasion: It is a procedure that also exfoliates the skin. Additionally, it uses the saline solution and oxygen instead of crystals. It not only improves blood circulation but also hydrates the skin. It also boosts the production of collagen.
Laser resurfacing: This is a way to remove the outer layers of the damaged skin and stimulate the collagen production and new skin cells.
Finally, cosmetic products tend to hold a lot of appeal, and it is easy to spend money on them only to find that they are not good for your skin type. Therefore, skincare is best discussed with a dermatologist who can help you understand your skin type and guide you to the kind of skincare best suited for you.
There's a new trend in health and wellness services (and cosmetology) that probably deserves to be talked about quite a bit.
In some ways, this is almost brand-new – the idea that you can get effective sculpting and contouring services without invasive cosmetic surgery.
It's also quite a boon for those who don't like the traditional process of “nip/tuck” cutting and strategic injections.
Replacing Invasive Procedures
Let's be honest – some of us just don't like the needle. The idea of going to a health and wellness provider and getting subdermal injections fills us with dread, or at least gives us a creepy-crawly feeling.
These types of goals and objectives are different for everyone. For those who are okay with needles, invasive procedures might be a good option. However, by building a range of non-invasive procedures, we are offering a new alternative for our clientele, and it’s an alternative that a lot of people want, for various reasons.
Help with Recovery
The plain reality is that recovery from invasive procedures is a necessary thing. You might get swelling at the injection site, or other post-procedure symptoms, and orders from your doctor not to go back to work or engage in physical activity for a certain amount of time after a procedure.
Non-invasive procedures can eliminate a lot of this limitation and provide a new and vibrant way to make you look your best. That’s without the extreme intervention of something that’s more invasive and really gets categorized as “surgery.”
As an example of the non-invasive type of thing that we’re talking about, we offer hyaluronic acid pen treatments and something called the ‘vacuum butt lift.’ The hyaluronic acid pen uses pressurized air to move this natural substance below the surface of the skin. The vacuum butt lift, for its part, is pretty much what it sounds like – suction cup treatment applied to the buttocks, to lift that area of the body and re-contour it to your satisfaction. There are also other new contouring technologies based on stimulating collagen under the skin, without “reaching” under the skin with a knife or a needle.
That’s just part of what we offer here at BB, where we take the time to celebrate each individual patient. We want you to experience all of what the newest science has to offer, in a warm and welcoming environment, and to be fully informed before you choose the best option. Come in and get started exploring ways to achieve your goals with non-invasive methods.
Maintaining a youthful appearance is something most Americans are passionate about. One of the main components that you need in place when trying to stay looking your best is a skincare routine. The average person spends around $400 a year on skincare. While there are a number of over-the-counter products that can help you maintain a youthful glow, you will also need to seek out the treatments offered by skincare professionals.
For years, people have invested in facials because they help rid the pores in the face of oils and toxins. If it has been a while since you have received a professional facial, it might be time to make an appointment. Below are some warning signs you might notice when it is time to invest in a professional facial.
Clogged Pores Are Never GoodMost people have heard how the skin is the largest organ on the human body. Your skin contains millions of pores that are designed to help the skin breathe. Each of your pores contains glands that are specifically designed to produce sebum. Sebum is an oil that can be beneficial in small doses but becomes more damaging to the skin as it grows. One of the main problems that you might notice when it is time to get a facial is clogged pores.
Generally, clogged pores will appear as blackheads on your skin. Rather than allowing these blackheads to rob you of confidence, you need to work with professionals to get a facial. The Signature Facial offered by the team at Unblemished Spa is perfect for oily skin. This facial includes extractions, exfoliation and a double cleanse.
Lots of Travel Can Be Harmful to Your SkinFlying is the preferred way to travel for millions of Americans. While flying can get you to your destination in a hurry, it can also do a number on your skin. The lack of humidity in the typical plane can make your skin feel extremely dry and dehydrated. The more you travel, the harder it will be to avoid large dry patches of skin on your place.
If you are looking for a way to rehydrate your skin after multiple trips in an airplane, a facial is just what the doctor ordered. With a high-quality facial, your skin will feel rejuvenated and healthy.
The Insatiable Need for RelaxationBeing an adult in modern times is extremely stressful. Going to work, raising children and dealing with a global pandemic is enough to put anyone in a worried and anxious mood. If you are tired of stressing out on a daily basis and need a break from the action, a relaxing facial is a great investment. At Unblemished Spa, our facials come with various types of massage, which only enhances the level of relaxation you experience.
Are you experiencing one or more of the problems mentioned in this article? If so, it is time to find out more about the facials offered by Unblemished Spa.
As we age, our skin loses its elasticity and begins to sag. Even though a healthy diet and regular exercise routine can help to reduce the adverse effects of aging on our bodies and skin, it may not be an effective means of tightening loose skin. Fortunately, a non-invasive method of safely tightening sagging skin exists and is readily accessible.
Radio Frequency Skin Tightening
Radio frequency skin tightening uses radio frequency waves to tighten loose and aging skin. The waves reduce the laxity of the skin while promoting the production of collagen molecules essential to a healthy, youthful appearance. Through this non-invasive treatment, you can see positive results in the area that is targeted.
Skin Laxity, The Aging Process, And Radio Frequency Treatment
As skin ages, it tends to lose collagen and elastin molecules responsible for its structure and plumpness. When radio frequency waves penetrate the skin, the skin contracts and vibrates, causing its pores to decrease; this action also stimulates the production of collagen fibers and improves lymphatic flow in the skin, regenerating its elastin and collagen molecules. The skin’s tissue structure is tightened with visible results following the procedure.
Parts Of The Body Radio Frequency Skin Tightening Can Be Beneficial
Most clients choose to focus skin tightening treatments on their jawlines and necks where sagging skin frequently occurs. Radio frequency can also treat sagging skin on the arms, eyes, stomach area, and smooth fine lines and wrinkles. Since the procedure is administered through a hand-held instrument, it can target almost any desired site.
Radio Frequency Skin Tightening Procedure
Before you undergo radiofrequency skin tightening, it is essential to know how to prepare and expect. Generally, little preparation other than washing the target area with warm, soapy water is required. Starting with clean skin allows the treatment to work its best without the interference of oils, lotions, and other substances coating the skin. The target treatment area will be marked, and the practitioner will guide the device delivering the radio waves over the site in its entirety. You may feel your skin tightening during the treatment, and you should see results upon completing the procedure.
A Popular And Effective Skin Tightening Treatment
This tightening and rejuvenating aging and sagging skin has become popular as it is non-invasive and requires no downtime for recovery. Your treatment will be complete in just 30-45 minutes, and you can return to your normal activities immediately following the procedure. Radio frequency skin tightening is an attractive option for people who want to look and feel their best without the hassle and risk of traditional cosmetic surgery methods.
Understanding big advances in important medical procedures is a long-term process.
Our cultural media reflects reality back to us, sometimes in distorted ways. If you're trying to understand how medical things are done “as seen on TV,” you're often looking at a 20-year or 30-year gap. For instance, did you know that many dentists don't use mechanical drilling anymore to fill cavities?
Here's another excellent example – think about the traditional liposuction procedure. If you're like many of us, it brings to mind images of biohazard bags filled with cut-out bloody fat deposits that had to be surgically removed from someone's belly or other part of the body. What a scene! While in real life, most of this is carefully hidden from view, the TV shows us all the gritty detail.
For fans of reality television, though, it's important to know that liposuction is not like this anymore - at least, it doesn’t have to be, because there are new alternative options that are non-invasive.
Ultrasonic Cavitation: What Is It?
In an ultrasonic cavitation procedure, sonic frequencies help to break down fat deposits and send the broken-down remnants of what used to be fat cells out of the body.
This works by medical professionals moving an ultrasonic device over the contours of the skin. There is no cutting, or sucking, at all – and no biohazard bags.
With that said, there is really no needed recovery time, either. You just walk in and get it done. This is seen as a relatively safe procedure with few side effects, and it's really helping people take control of their body contours in a new way.
Some experts describe it like this – the ultrasonic frequencies, they say, “shake” the fat cells until they erupt, and then the residual compounds are sent out of the body through the lymph and urine systems.
That's a lot better than a surgeon cutting on you to trim down fat areas on your body.

Come on in and check out what we offer, and get consultation from individuals with expertise in these new ways to slim the body.

For many years there has only been one option for those who wanted plumper fuller-looking lips. If they didn’t care for needles, then there was really no choice at all. Luckily, a technically advanced needle-free product is taking the market by storm and proving to be the better choice all the way around. The hyaluron pen is a simple pain-free way to smooth fine lines and wrinkles instantly plumping lips to voluptuous perfection. The procedure is quick and easy with long-lasting results that will make you love your visit to Unblemished Spa.
Hyaoluron Pen Decomposed
The procedure still involves hyaluronic acid, so you know the results are awesome. Instead of a needle, the filler pen uses pressure to convert the hyaluronic acid into nanoscale molecules small enough to penetrate the skin. It’s virtually painless, with no needles involved. The smallest insulin needle available is still twice as wide as the diameter of the pressure-flow from the pen. It’s almost like bathing your lips in hyaluronic acid from the inside out.
Of course, one of the biggest benefits is the lack of needles. Who wouldn’t love a long-lasting non-invasive procedure that leaves you with soft supple lips looking full and crave-worthy without using needles? Another huge benefit is that the hyaluronic acid is distributed more evenly under your skin for better results. Injections shoot the liquid into one spot where it pools and eventually spreads a little, which accounts for some of the pain. Since the filler pen converts the hyaluronic acid into tiny molecules, they penetrate the skin in multiple areas for even distribution and a fuller effect. The hyaluronic acid reaches the papillary layer of skin containing the collagen fibers and there are no sharp needles to rupture the vascular system within it. Adding hyaluronic acid in this manner helps revive the collagen that dries up as you age.
Safety and Efficacy
The hyaluron pen delivers safe long-lasting results but they are not permanent. Since the treatment is non-invasive and much more cost-effective than injections, you won’t mind popping in again in a few months for a fill. The device is safe and effective with no known side effects, so you’ll feel at ease when you come in. Plus, the results are instant. When you leave Unblemished Spa, you’ll have the plumper fuller younger-looking lips that give you that fantastic smile that’s hard to beat.
If you still have questions about this effective technically advanced option to injections, feel free to schedule a consultation at Unblemished Spa. We focus on all things aesthetic with non-surgical, non-invasive treatments to enhance your existing beauty and our highly trained staff is always here to answer questions or discuss your skincare goals. We are conveniently located in San Ramon, California, and we can’t wait to hear from you.
