We’re welcoming summer this month with a brand new facial here at Abbracci Med Spa! Our new Restorative 30% Vitamin C Facial incorporates Vitamin C and glycolic acid, together with enzymes and peptides that promote cellular turnover, which helps to brighten, lighten and tighten the skin.
This treatment is perfect for all skin types, but is especially helpful for aging skin, as well those who are looking to prevent future skin lines and signs of aging.
Of course, we are always telling our clients that the best way to deter skin aging is to start every single day with a generous application of sunscreen in the morning before you apply make-up. The sun’s rays play a crucial role in premature and early signs of skin aging; it slows down natural collagen and elastin production which are two compounds that help your skin retain its’ natural plumpness.
Our Restorative Vitamin C Facial uses glycolic acid and vitamin c, both of which have mechanisms for providing skin protection, and the combination of the two provide potent anti-aging benefits. Glycolic acid works like an exfoliator on the skin’s surface by helping to dissolve dead skin cells, which then kicks collagen production into high gear.
Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant, which can help protect your skin from sun damage and other atmospheric pollutants in our environment. Vitamin C products also help promote proper hydration, and as you know, dehydrated skin is more likely to show fine lines and wrinkles.
When Vitamin C & Glycolic Acid are used together, glycolic acid will exfoliate the dead cells on the top layer of the epidermis, so the Vitamin C can hydrate and protect the newer skin underneath. Together, they also help your skin appear younger and protect it against future damage. This is the perfect skin treatment as we enter summer and will be spending more time outdoors in the sunshine!
This month, we are offering this brand new facial for $130 (regularly $150).
