Having the best products means little if they can’t reach their target – and that is especially true of skin care products, which can only do their “job” if they can get past the dead skin and environmental toxins to penetrate the skin’s surface.
At Head To Toe by Arlene, there are two services that Arlene recommends for all of her clients, regardless of skin type: dermaplaning and Hydrafacial. When performed regularly, both treatments create a smoother surface, free of dead skin and pollutants, allowing products to more effectively clean, protect and rejuvenate the skin.
Dermaplaning literally removes the fine hairs and dead skin cells from the skin’s surface with a blade – almost like shaving. “Women often have the misconception that they are going to grow hair like men” if they remove their facial hair, Arlene says. “But that’s not going to happen because our hormonal make-up is different.”
She explains that as we age, sometimes women can develop “problem areas” of thicker or darker facial hair growth. Regular dermaplaning treatments can help control these problem areas, and is beneficial for all women to maintain a smoother, brighter complexion.
“Dermaplaning exfoliates the skin – it removes the dry, dead skin on top, in addition to the hair,” Arlene says. “Having a cleaner, smoother surface allows for better product penetration, and it allows for smoother, more even coverage when you apply make-up.”
She also recommends Hydrafacial for all of her clients, which exfoliates while adding essential moisture back into the skin. Featured several times on the popular daytime television show, “The Doctors,” Hydrafacial is touted as “the most effective
non-laser skin treatment” for all skin types, in treatment of acne, dark circles, wrinkles and preventive care.
“Hydrafacial works on all skin types because it’s not abrasive,” Arlene says. Hydrafacial removes excess dirt and oil, dry skin cells and environmental toxins, resulting in a cleaner, more youthful complexion.
Educating her clients is important to Arlene, so that they understand why she performs certain treatments, and how they can maintain a healthy skin care regimen in between appointments.
