Beauty may be skin deep, but skin matters. We’ve written in the past about the importance of a smile, but at Savannah Dental, we want you to put on your best face in every way possible. An optimal skincare routine is the perfect accessory to a great smile.
Read on to learn about how to optimize your fall skincare routine.
What’s the difference between summer and fall skincare?
As the seasons transition, autumn brings cooler weather and a drop in humidity. This often has a drying effect on skin, which can lead to redness and flakiness.
Meet Revision Skincare
Investing in a medical grade skincare routine lays down the foundation for slowing down skin problems. It prevents long term and permanent damage, which in turns saves money on future skincare treatments.
Savannah Dental is proud to offer Revision Skincare products, including D.E.J. Face Cream and Youthfull Lip Replenisher, which are perfect for fall skincare. Ask about it at your next appointment.
Intro to Microneedling
Microneedling is the insertion of fine, sterilized needles into the skin. The body rushes to heal these pinpricks on the surface of your skin, which results in a plumped, youthful appearance. Microneedling is an excellent way to keep your skin vibrant during colder months.
Most pinpricks are only surface-level deep. While microneedling can be done at home, in-office treatments use slightly sharper needles which are safe under professional supervision. Sterilization is extremely important when it comes to microneedling equipment to reduce risk of infection.
The Benefits of Microneedling
At Savannah Dental, we offer in-office microneedling with the SkinPen - the first FDA-cleared microneedling device. It’s clinically proven to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the neck, as well as acne scars in patients 22 and older.
As few as three treatments spaced 30 days apart can improve your appearance. SkinPen’s mechanical process is less abrasive than many of the harsh peels offered.
SkinPen is also the only device clinically proven to improve the appearance of facial acne scars. The micro-injuries that the device causes triggers your immune system to remodel the scar tissue, while keeping the structure of the skin intact.
What to look for in a skincare specialist
Anyone who works on your skin should have an esthetician license, but more advanced procedures require additional training, which medical and master estheticians have. In Georgia, estheticians must achieve 1,000 hours or 2,000 apprentice hours to become licensed. They must renew their license every two years.
At Savannah Dental, we employ medical estheticians. A medical esthetician has a more clinically focused role than a regular esthetician, who is more likely to work in a day spa than a medical clinic. Medical estheticians can provide treatments including dermal fillers, botox and laser hair removal, which most estheticians are unable to perform without further training.
One of the newer additions to our staff, Mackenzy Tomlin, is a Savannah native and a medical esthetician. Contact us to schedule a consultation with her and learn how she can help you achieve your skin care goals and optimize your skincare routine this fall.
Savannah Dental can be a one-stop resource for a variety of skincare needs, including botox for cosmetic and non-cosmetic purposes.
