Makeup can be a fun and creative way to express yourself and enhance your features, but it shouldn’t be obligatory. As a plastic surgeon in Atlanta, I often recommend medical spa treatments for my patients who want smooth, evenly-toned skin that doesn’t need the help of concealer or foundation. Two procedures I suggest for glowing skin that you won’t want to cover up are:
This is a gentle exfoliating procedure that mechanically removes the outer layers of the skin’s surface using medical-grade crystals so that your skin looks smooth and polished. Microdermabrasion also stimulates skin renewal and encourages collagen formation for a supple, youthful-looking complexion. After just a 30 minute treatment, you’ll notice immediately that your skin feels velvety to the touch and fine lines and pores appear blurred.
A PhotoFacial is a light-based treatment that can be used to correct a number of skin conditions, such as redness, rosacea, brown spots, and broken capillaries. This is an ideal option for anyone who wants to reduce pigmentation irregularities caused by aging or the environment. There’s no downtime needed after a 30 to 45 minute session, and you will see results in 7 to 14 days.
