Hydrafacial, Microdermabrasion, Oxygen Facial and LED Facial Therapy
Advanced Skin & Vein Care Centers offers a Diamond Microdermabrasion Treatment Protocol at Lexington and Georgetown locations. This method utilizes paddles, passed over the treatment area, to superficially remove dead cells. Microdermabrasion is an amazingly effective treatment for the skin that helps repair facial skin from the sun and the effects of aging. The process is used to treat fine lines and wrinkles. The treatment encourages the production of a new underlying layer of skin cells with higher levels of collagen and elastin, leading to more radiant skin. And because it removes dead surface cells,microdermabrasion can also increase the effectiveness of your skincare products. Microdermabrasion is much gentler than dermabrasion, and is often called a “mini-procedure.” It takes 20-30 minutes and requires no recovery downtime.
Ultrasonic treatment can be performed by itself or in conjunction with a microdermabrasion treatment session. When used with microdermabrasion, the absorption rate of topical vitamin enriched gels are increased to 80%. This enables the skin to rejuvenation not only from the top down, but from several layers deeper and on up. When ultrasonic waves penetrate into the epidermis, they create a strong pressure through vibration to rid waste matter and to open the pores for a deep cleaning. Blackheads or pimples come out easier because sebum blocks up pores. This helps to eliminate the generations of blackheads and pimples and help maintain a balance of clear and pure skin. Some advantages of ultrasonic treatment are:
• Removing pimples
• Skin firming
• Removing acne
• Lightening spots
• Preventing wrinkles
• Removing cuticles
• Excellent cleansing effect
• Extremely high absorption of nourishment
• Awesome ability to maintain clear and pure skin
• The Ultrasonic Wands produces a high frequency wave of 1-3MHz. These are waves that are invisible micro-vibrations that can penetrate deep within in the cells, breaking down the calcified fatty deposits. This stimulates the release of toxins and waste products out of the cells and transfers them into the lymphatic system.

LED FACIAL MASK
The LED face masks uses both red and blue wavelengths of light, as well as near infrared light.
Red light, emitted from the LED Face Mask is used to produce amazing anti-aging results. Red light has been clinically proven to stimulate the body’s natural production of the proteins elastin and collagen. The increased production of elastin and collagen improves the skin’s flexibility, reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, and tones the skin by reducing sagging and loose skin.
Blue light, emitted from the LED Face Mask, has been clinically shown to kill the bacteria that leads to acne.
Near infrared light, emitted from the LED Face Mask, has been clinically proven to improve blood circulation, which dramatically aids in the skin’s ability to heal itself. It can also promote better scar healing.
Oxygen is one of the most essential elements for human life. The oxygen that we inhale from the air around us helps keep our body and skin free from impurities and toxins. But as we grow older, the oxygen levels in our skin naturally decline, which contributes to wrinkles and fine lines. This specialized beauty treatment is designed to replenish the levels of oxygen in your skin, smoothing out wrinkles and restoring a youthful appearance to your face. Several celebrities tout the amazing benefits of oxygen facials. Madonna swears by them, and even Kate Middleton is rumored to have had an oxygen facial before the royal wedding.
