Get Your Glow Back

Beautiful, mature woman looking in mirror

“In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes,” Benjamin Franklin famously wrote in a letter, referencing novelist Daniel Defoe's assertion in his 1726 book, The Political History of the Devil. But wise as they were, both Franklin and Defoe missed one of life's other certainties. No matter what lotions, potions and procedures you pick, the fact is that your skin will age over time. Your body's collagen production will slow, elastin will lose its snap, spots and wrinkles will emerge. Like death and taxes, aging simply is inevitable – but an aged look is a choice.

If your skin has lost its youthful luster, St. Augustine's Avanti Medical Spa offers four top ways to get your glow back:

  • Microdermabrasion: Nearly a half-million microdermabrasion procedures are performed in America annually, and with good reason – it works! This noninvasive procedure is among the most popular for diminishing fine lines and wrinkles and polishing the skin. Microdermabrasion involves the application of tiny, rough crystal grains to literally buff away the outermost layer of dead skin cells, leaving you with a smoother, more even looking complexion and improving sun-damage, acne-scars, and large pores.
  • Peels: Also known as a chemical peel, this procedure uses customized liquid formulas to gently remove the skin's upper layers, diminishing fine lines, lightening freckles and evening the skin's coloring, tone and texture. Peels can be tailored for specific skincare needs. For instance, Avanti Medical Spa's Lactic Acid Peel uses natural acids derived from fruit to gently exfoliate sensitive skin, and its Rosacea Peel, which features a green tea mixture, is specifically formulated for patients with chronic facial redness. A series of chemical peels as prescribed by your aesthetician will work wonders for your skin long-term, and regular facials can help maintain your results. You can also combine Peels with Microdermabrasion’s for an even more advanced treatment!
  • Fraxel Skin Resurfacing: This procedure uses non-invasive laser light technology to resurface the skin and stimulate its natural collagen production, allowing for lasting results. Highly customized for each individual patient's skincare needs and desired outcomes, Fraxel therapy can smooth wrinkles, diminish acne and stretchmark scars, eliminate brown spots, treat precancerous lesions and more! Fraxel is the quick and affordable fix for most skin care concerns.
  • At-home skincare routine: The beautiful results that your aesthetician can help you achieve will be short-lived if you fail to care for your skin when you return home. This means a daily, no-skipping, no-skimping skincare regimen with high-quality, proven products that effectively target your unique skincare needs. Drawing on decades of medically-based skincare experience and the age-old beauty secrets of her Indian culture, Avanti Medical Spa's Dr. Kalpana DePasquale has developed a proprietary line of products infused with natural ingredients and available without prescriptions.
