Oh, the weather outside is...definitely not frightful here in beautiful Los Angeles
Loved ones all cozy inside their homes, decorating for the Holidays, fireplace blazing to stay warm...you're probably thinking, "oh she fancy" as I mentioned the fireplace, but hey, a girl doesn't have central heat. It may be electric, but it's the ambiance I'm trying to create in your mind - darn it!
Winter is a different concept here in LA. One moment there'll be clear, blue skies; the sun warm on your face with a cool breeze swaying our tall, lanky palm trees. The next, it's a day like today; staying inside, heat blazing on your face staying warm from the nurturing yet cold rain.
Already my skin is panicking at the thought of the various elements meddling with all the hard work I've done to correct all the damage from summer. It's a constant process of correcting, maintaining, adjusting, educating, and most importantly consistency.
With gatherings coming around the corner at every turn, you must be wondering what can be done to make sure you're glowing on the outside to reflect what's already there inside you; love, happiness, and a dash of feisty goodness.
Across the board I am hearing how everyone's skin is dry. Even I've been hit with it, and I am an oil slick all 365 days of the year. To say it's rough is an understatement. For sure, it gets overwhelming on what treatments are best because let's face it, the options are endless and can leave even the most experienced dizzy with confusion!
Hands down, my saving grace was coming in to get a facial with one of our talented Medical Aestheticians. Even though I'm one myself, it's always nice to let go of the reigns and be pampered while having another pair of eyes give solid advice.
We went with doing a 'Wet' Dermaplane. This treatment is a newer process compared to the traditional 'dry' way. It's a very popular treatment, so I was excited to see how it would feel with using an oil. Having sensitive skin, I knew this was going to feel luxurious! Sure enough, it was, and I couldn't be happier with how it reset my skin!
What is Dermaplane?
Using a surgical scalpel, you precisely glide it across the skin to remove peach fuzz and dead skin. I've noticed that this treatment has been 100% effective in removing the dead skin. Personally, I choose this modality over other facial treatments that resurface the skin. Anyone can benefit, even if one has light hairs on the face/submental. Added bonus, this treatment makes it easier for extractions to be done and has your skin vulnerable enough to allow all products that you put on to penetrate deep into the skin. It's a win win all around, ya'll.
Ways to enhance your Dermaplane:
-This can be added on to majority of our facials
-02 Infusion with Intraceuticals is a Patient Favorite as it helps to plump your skin leaving it fresh, dewy, hydrated, and gives a beautiful feel to your skin!
-Lactic Acid is very popular to help hydrate, lightly exfoliate, and brighten.
There are many other ways your treatment can be customized specifically for you. Known for same day appointments, we'd love to get you in before your next holiday shindig.
End of an Era
It's surreal to think we're only a few short weeks away of ending a decade. Let that sink in for a minute..TEN FREAKING YEARS. As one naturally does, self reflection sets in as we see how far we've come along.
We've certainly had a big shift here at Blue. Based in Los Angeles, we've continued to be a leader in the beauty industry. Celebrating our 20th year, it has been overwhelming the amount of love and support we receive on a daily basis. With a big birthday like we had, we wanted to get a fresh, new look. That's right, we did a huge re brand! We've come a long way over the years and we couldn't have done it without you all, so we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Truly, we are eternally grateful.
