Self Care Series: Dermalinfusion by Envy Medical
It’s a buzz word these days and something we all want in our life. We talk about it, but how many of us are really doing it? It should be any activity that we do deliberately in order to take care of our mental, emotional, and physical health. Although it's a simple concept in theory, it's something we very often overlook. Good self care is key to improved mood and reduced anxiety.
Over the past year, one of my goals in my self care journey has been to improve my skin, starting with my face first. Let’s be honest here, I am a fair skinned red head that has loved the sun my entire life. And let me make note that I have loved the sun without the proper protection and now I am paying for it. But that is okay, because I have learned from it and dealing with it now.
In my quest for the best skin possible, Ash and I came across a med spa called Purity Wellness Center, led by Dr. Scott Wilson. He leads a team of accredited, experienced and most importantly F-U-N Skin Care Professionals. This is why I chose Purity for all things dealing with my face and my quest to improve the damage I have done over the years! Ashley, my licensed aesthetician, does just that! I love that I can schedule an appointment with her and she takes it from there. She will first analyze my skin then customize a treatment plan based on my needs.
During my most recent facial, Ashley customized a facial specific for me and what my skin needed. I absolutely loved it and cannot wait for my next visit! She started with a gentle cleanse of the face, followed by a quick hot towel steam. Once my skin was throughly cleansed, the fun really started.
The first step in my facial was a Dermalplane. This is where a blade is used to softly exfoliate dead skin and temporarily remove fine hair on the face. It leaves the skin baby soft and allows better product penetration and makeup application.
From there, Ashley used the Dermalinfusion by Envy Medical. This is an advanced skin-resurfacing treatment that combines exfoliation, extraction, and infusion of condition-specific serums to improve skin health, function and appearance. What I love most about this patented, non-invasive treatment, is that the Dermalinfusion is fully customizable for my skin in that moment. It’s the perfect solution to address a wide variety of skin concerns and conditions from head-to-toe and is suitable for all skin types and tones.
This is a quick yet super effective facial option because the exfoliated, extracting and infusing all happens at once. This portion of the facial was done in less than 30 minutes. It’s noninvasive and great over a lunch break!
Once the dermalinfusion is complete, Ashley then did a few extractions to clear out congested pores around the chin, nose and forehead. Next up is my favorite part of the facial - the amazing skin products that Purity wellness has to offer. Ashley applied soothing Skin Medica Cerimide Cream to add extra hydration and protection for my skin to heal and rejuvenate for the rest of the evening. It’s always best if possible to avoid working out after a facial and to drink lots of water.
The finishing touch to my facial was the treating of any redness, irritation during the facial and any small breakouts. This is done with a little machine Ashely calls her "Vintage but effective modality" in the skin care industry. It is a high frequency electrode that uses violet or red light into the skin. It helps to improve the skin in so many ways including healing burns or acne, its antibacterial and anti inflammatory. It aids in plumping the skin and also excites collagen and elastin. It will leave your skin clean, tight and so oh so soft.
The entire facial experience is purity in itself. No pun attended! The lights are dimmed in the facial room. There is tranquil soft music playing. A robe is provided for comfort just before you slip into a heated comfort table for the facial. Ashley analyzes your skin and puts the best treatment plan in place for you. It is customized specifically for the goals you are trying to achieve. Ashley has so many years of experience and knowledge, I trust her and let her take full control. For me personally, Ashley has suggested a facial plan every 4-6 weeks to work on the damaged skin from many years past. My skin has never looked better and it’s because of the team at Purity Wellness Center!
