Maintaining a skincare routine is very important for skin health, but sometimes the benefits to overall health are overlooked. Things such as regular facials and curated skincare products work together to cleanse, hydrate, and firm the skin. But they also promote wellness and relaxation for the body and mind as a whole. A goal of ours at Cleveland Primecare is to help our patients feel healthy and beautiful- inside and out. Skincare for overall wellness is a great way to achieve that.
The average facial takes 60 to 90 minutes (LovelySkin, 2021), and during that time a professional is cleansing, exfoliating, moisturizing, and massaging your skin. You will leave not only looking refreshed, but feeling refreshed. Facials are linked to mental health benefits including increased self-esteem and relaxation (Beautiful Skin, 2019). Setting aside the time for regular facials is a wonderful self-care practice that promotes mental and physical health. Facials are not recommended, however, in areas where botox or fillers are located.
For those with and without botox or fillers, there are additional ways to enhance skin health. At Cleveland Primecare we use a line of medical grade skincare products called Neocutis created by Merz. The proprietary peptides in these products maintain skin hydration, firming, and cleansing. They even promote collagen production which can lead to long-term effects. Additionally, skincare products such as Neocutis maintain filler and make esthetic treatments last longer. All of these products are investments in yourself and your skin health. Whatever your skincare goals may be, we have recommendations to help you achieve them.
TCA peels are another great service for those with and without treated skin. A TCA peel is a chemical peel that works by removing dead skin cells to clear the way for the newer and smoother skin below. The treatment takes about 30 minutes and is a noninvasive way to improve the appearance of sagging skin in the face and neck area. It can also minimize acne scarring, wrinkles, skin discoloration, and promote collagen production (American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, 2022). TCA peels have no downtime and lead to immediate as well as long-term benefits.
There are options for everyone, and facials, proper skincare products, and chemical peels, are just a few examples. Self-care is extremely important. Here at Cleveland Primecare we aim to promote overall wellness, offering treatments and products that tend to your body and mind.
