Summer is quickly approaching and it is time to switch up our skin care routine.  Here are the top 4 things we recommend you do in order to prepare your beautiful skin for the change of seasons.

  1. If you always wanted laser hair removal, winter and spring are the best seasons to do it. Because laser hair removal must be done over a course of several treatments to achieve desired results, it may be preferable to have it done before we tend to show a little more skin during the summer months. In addition, it is essential to avoid the sun 48 hours after a laser hair removal treatment. For certain parts of the body, this is obviously more difficult to do in the summer. Therefore, make sure to plan your laser treatments accordingly. 
  1. Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! You are what you eat (and drink!). Proper hydration from food and water makes a huge difference in the look and appearance of your skin. Summer’s heat can cause us to become less hydrated so it is important to drink plenty of water throughout the day.  A lesser known fact is that a diet consisting of healthy essential fatty acids is also necessary in order for our skin to look properly hydrated.  This is because our skin is lipophilic (attracted to fatty acids). Therefore, in addition to drinking plenty of liquids, make sure to include healthy fats like nuts, seed, avocados and oily fish into your daily diet. 
  1. Cellulite is an extremely common and normal condition that a majority of women have. However, if you are unhappy with your cellulite, now is the time to get a little extra help. Because there are different contributing factors to the appearance of cellulite, there are also different remedies to cellulite. These include message (to help circulation and lymphatic drainage), ingestion of collagen peptides (to regain collagen), diet and exercise ( to reduce the amount of fat pushing against the connective tissue and to help tighten the skin in the butt and thigh region), and increased water intake (to help with circulation and skin elasticity). If one has tried these different cellulite remedies and is still not seeing desired results, liposuction may be a very effective treatment for cellulite. This is due to the fact that the number one contributor to cellulite is due to the presence of fat in the butt and thigh region. Cavi-lipo is especially effective in eliminating cellulite and it is completely non-invasive. It works by breaking down fat cells, liquifying them and thereby eliminating the type of fat that leads to the appearance of cellulite. Give it a try before the summer!
  1. Last, but definitely not least, wear your sunscreen! Now is the time to find a broad spectrum sunscreen SPF 30+ (one suitable for your face and one suitable for your body.) Healthwise, applying sunscreen is an essential step in order to prevent the sun’s harmful rays which cause skin cancer. From an aesthetic point of view, it is incredibly important to apply a broad spectrum SPF 30+ in order to prevent the most prevalent signs of aging including fine lines, wrinkles, brown spots and loss of elasticity. Make sure you reapply sunscreen through out the day (according to your sunscreens directions, usually very 2-6 hours), after sweating and/or water activities, and even if it is cloudy or you are indoors.

Thanks to new technology and advancements in cosmetic chemistry, there are several safe and effective fine-line and wrinkles treatments on the market today. One of the best ways to treat and prevent fine-lines and wrinkles are through facials. Let’s examine the different types of facials that are the best for those looking to reduce, treat, and prevent fine-lines and wrinkles.

The first type of facial that has been revolutionary in the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles is called radio frequency (RF) facials.  RF facials work by stimulating the production of new collagen fibers through the use of radio waves. The results are amazing and immediate and make the skin appear elastic and youthful. RF facials are especially popular, as results continue to improve up to 3 months prior to the treatment. 

Another popular facial treatment is known as  microcurrent facials. Microcurrent facials focus on the muscles under the skin and work by emitting a low level current that mimics the body’s natural current. This trains the facial muscles to strengthen, thereby lifting and tightening sagging skin. This strengthening also reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. 

RF and microcurrent facials  are best done together. It is preferable  to have the radio frequency treatment done first, followed by a microcurrent facial treatment. That is because the radio frequency facial works by warming up the facial muscles and makes them more receptive to the lifting and toning benefits of the microcurrent facial. RF facials also open up the pores due to the heat which also allows the skincare used during the microcurrent facial to go deeper into the skin. Therefore, it is best to find an aesthetician  that is knowledgeable  and trained to synchronise both treatments in order to obtain optimal results. 

Another popular anti-aging facial that targets fine-lines and wrinkles is called the Oxygeneo 3 in 1 Facial. These facials treat and reverse the signs of aging by delivering a pressurised form of Oxygen directly into the skin.  Oxygeneo facials use a special type of treatment that  triggers something called the “Bohr Effect”. This effect causes the skin to deliver more oxygen from within, as opposed to artificially delivering oxygen to the skin like other Oxygen facials. The result? Oxygeneo facials shrinks the appearance of pores, plumps, hydrates and brightens skins, reduces fine lines and wrinkles,  decreases  hyperpigmentation and leaves skin silky smooth.  Results are not only immediate, but continue to have a positive effect on the skin long after a treatment. This is because the Oxygeneo facial increases circulation in the skin thereby improving the skins appearance and slowing down the aging process.

Facials are one of the most popular beauty treatments for a good reason. Not only do they leave our face feeling and looking absolutely amazing, but they are also incredibly relaxing and rejuvenating. Unfortunately, not everyone can afford facials every week (or month, or even year!) Here is how to extend the effectiveness of a facial between sessions:

From a short term perspective, it is important to avoid certain things after a facial in order to maximize results. These include activities that can open up the pores such as exercise and steam rooms. Increased heat and sweat caused by these two activities can irritate freshly exfoliated skin, break capillaries, and cause inflammation. Give yourself 24-48 hours after a facial before engaging in these activities again. In addition, stay away from the sun and immediately put on sunscreen. Your fresh, newly exfoliated skin is especially susceptible to sun damage and can easily burn. Last, if you usually use a retinoid or peel at night, make sure to stop using these products for a week following your facial while your skin is healing. Instead,  focus on applying very nourishing and hydrating moisturizers and serums.

If you had any extractions done, you may notice some light scaring and redness after a treatment. It is extremely important NOT to pick at your face. Doing so can undo the benefits of your facial and leave permanent scarring. In addition, some blemishes may have come closer to the skin’s surface during your facial, but not enough to have them professionally extracted. Therefore, it may be tempting to try and pop these blemishes following a facial. However, this should also be avoided, as this can make the blemish worse and cause scarring. Instead, apply a Benzoyl Peroxide acne treatment on the problem area and wait until they clear. 

Next, make sure to follow your aesthetician  advice after your facial and establish a consistent daytime and nighttime skin care routine. This will make a tremendous impact on your skin and may allow you to extend the time between facials. There are so many amazing products on the market that can help any type  of skin concern and can fit any budget. Make sure a gentle peel or exfoliator is included every 1-2 weeks for optimal results and get the “okay” from your aesthetician.

Last but not least, avoid the sun as much as possible and never forget your sunscreen! If you want your skin looking and feeling its best between appointments, you cannot skip this step. While facials can certainly help treat the common signs of aging, wearing sunscreen and avoiding the sun will prevent fine lines, wrinkles, brown spots and loss of elasticity. Make sure you reapply sunscreen throughout the day (according to your sunscreens directions, usually very 2-6 hours), after sweating and/or water activities, and even if it is cloudy or you are indoors.

Not all facials are created equally. This is especially the case if you are someone with sensitive skin. In fact, some types of facials can do more harm than good. Let’s explore different facial options for those who have more sensitive and delicate skin.

First and foremost, before you begin your facial, it is essential that you tell your aesthetician everything about your skin. This includes all your  skin concerns, what products you are using, and if there are any ingredients that make your skin irritated. The aesthetician can then customise your facial to meet your specific needs. Also, if you feel a burning or tingling sensation during your treatment, speak up. This may or may not be a normal reaction during the treatment and it is important to communicate this information to your aesthetician. It is also important to do your research before you get a facial done. Make sure you find an aesthetician that has a lot of experience and success treating patients with sensitive skin. 

One popular facial choice for sensitive skin is known as a lymphatic massage facial. The goal of this facial is to depuff and brighten the skin. This is achieved by draining  toxins out of lymph-nodes to depuff and reveal brighter younger looking skin.  Lymphatic massage facials also give patients a healthier looking complexion by increasing circulation to the face. This is especially effective for patients who tend to clench their jaws and grind their teeth. The massage feels amazing and it is suitable for those with sensitive skin. A lymphatic massage facial is also easily customizable and can compliment any type of skin. 

If your main skin concern is sensitive skin with acne, LED light therapy can be a very effective tool during a gentle facial and can help fight breakouts. It is usually used during what is commonly referred to as a “classic” facial in place of extractions which can be very irritating to sensitive, acne prone skin. The LED light helps fight inflammation and kills bacteria that can lead to acne.  

Last,  exfoliating facials and facial peels deliver amazing results. However, these two types of facials are better suited for those who do not suffer from sensitive skin. Nevertheless, it is definitely possible to receive the benefits of these two treatments, as an experienced aesthetician can use a more gentle peel and/or exfoliant. Just make sure to tell your aesthetician all your skin concerns and your current skin routine in order to receive optimal results. 

In conclusion, there is definitely a facial for every single skin type. In general, those with sensitive skin may be best sticking to facials that are advertised as hydrating, calming, and/  or soothing . 

Do you have sensitive skin but are still craving a facial? Our team at Beautie Bar by Staten Island will make sure to accommodate your every need.

Sunscreen is hands down the holy grail of skin care from both a health and aesthetic point of view. Applying sunscreen is an essential step in order to prevent the sun’s harmful rays which can cause skin cancer. It is also incredibly important to apply sunscreen in order to prevent the most prevalent signs of aging including fine lines, wrinkles, brown spots and loss of elasticity. Let’s delve deeper into these two topics.

From a health perspective, it is vital to use sunscreen to protect one's skin from the sun’s harmful UVA and UVB rays. Due to the consistent depletion of the ozone layer, our exposure to these harmful rays are always increasing. By applying sunscreen everyday, many experts believe that one can cut their risk of contracting skin cancers by 50%!  Many people make the mistake of forgetting to apply sunscreen to their face and body during the winter, cloudy days, and/or while indoors. While it is true that these three factors may decrease the total amount of UV rays exposed to the face an body, they certainly do not properly protect us from the sun.  80% of UV rays can make it past thick cloud cover. Therefore, it is essential to apply sunscreen to your face and body even when it is cloudy. 

The biggest misconception people have is that SPF protection is not necessary while indoors. This is false and if you want to prevent skin cancer and signs of aging,  it is essential to apply SPF even if you are indoors for most of the day.  For one, UV  rays can make it past windows because most are not properly treated with UV blocking filters.  In addition, there are studies that show that the blue light emitted  from our electronic devices can also be potentially harmful to our skin. 

From an aesthetic perspective, prolonged exposure to UV rays is the number one contributor to the signs of aging. While facials and fillers can certainly help prevent and treat signs of aging, the simple addition of sunscreen into your skin care routine will make a tremendous  impact on the look and feel of your skin. The good news is that the application of sunscreen is incredibly easy and cost effective and therefore can be an easy habit to maintain.

You may notice that there are many different types of sunscreens on the market. Some sunscreens are considered physical barrier sunscreens. These include sunscreens made from  iron oxide, zinc oxide or titanium dioxide as their active ingredients. These three ingredients create an actual physical carrier to UV and blue light rays. Because these ingredients are made to sit on top of the skin, they are better to use if you have oily or acne prone skin. The other types of sunscreens are considered  chemical sunscreens. These sunscreens actually absorb the harmful UV rays before they have a chance to damage the skin. Many prefer chemical sunscreens due to how they look and feel on the face. Both are perfectly acceptable options. However, if you are just beginning to add sunscreen to your skincare routine, it may take a little bit of trial and error to see what type of sunscreen your skin likes best.  At the end of the day, the best sunscreen is a sunscreen that you are more likely to use.

Remember, do not rely on the SPF in your moisturiser and/or foundation. While they are better than no SPF at all, often times we do not use enough of the product to receive the optimal SPF coverage. In addition, SPF must be reapplied throughout the day and not everyone wants to reapply a full face of makeup. Make sure to read the instructions on your sunscreen and reapply as suggested (usually every 2-6 hours).

Neglected sunscreen application? Do not feel guilty- it is never too late to start! We offer amazing skin treatments to help prevent and reverse the signs of aging.

What are Dermaplane Facials? 

Dermaplane facials are certainly the newest skin trend. Everyone we know seems to be talking about their amazing benefits and documenting their obsession on Instagram and Tiktok. What exactly is a dermaplane facial and why have they become so popular?

Dermaplaning is actually a fancy word for...get ready….shaving. Yes, shaving.  Dermaplane facials have normalized shaving women's faces and we are definitely not mad about it. But before you pick up that razor and try to shave your face at home, dermaplaning is best performed by a trained aesthetician in order to receive optimal results.  A dermaplane facial consists of taking a special, small scalpel and dragging it along the skin at a 45 degree angle in order to remove peach fuzz (otherwise known as vellus hairs), dead skin cells, debris and scar tissue. The result? Silky smooth and luminous skin. After the dermaplane treatment, patients can expect their makeup to go on easily and flawlessly. In addition, your expensive skin products and serums will be able to properly penetrate your face. The procedure can also help reduce the appearance of fine lines and acne scarring. 

Dermaplaning is also incredibly convenient. Dermaplaning does not require any downtime and has very little risks and side effects. That is why so many  people are opting to receive dermaplaning now as opposed to waxing which can be painful and leave skin very irritated. 

Dermaplaning is also often done before other types of facials such as scrubs or peels. This is so that the subsequent active ingredients in facials can better penetrate the skin after the removal of dead skin cells and vellus hairs. Dermaplaning is also an amazing facial treatment because most skin types can benefit from its cosmetic magic.

Ahhh...Oxygen. The basic element of life. Of course we need Oxygen to live and breathe. So it would make sense that our largest organ would need plenty of Oxygen as well. As it turns out, our skin can actually lack the optimal Oxygen that it needs. As a result, skin can look dull, saggy, dry and even wrinkly. Well, millions everywhere have discovered the absolute brilliance of a new type of facial called the Oxygen facial. This facial delivers- you guessed it- a pressurised form of oxygen directly into the skin. The result? Glowly, refreshed and hydrated skin. 

Sounds amazing, right? Well, as it turns out, not all oxygen facials are created equal. In fact, if you want to get the most bang for your buck, you will want to try the Oxygeneo facial. So what is the difference between an Oxygeneo facial and a regular Oxygen facial? The answer lies in the technique and delivery.  Oxygeneo facials work by triggering something called the “Bohr Effect”. This effect triggers the skin to deliver more oxygen from within, as opposed to artificially delivering oxygen to the skin like other Oxygen facials. The result? Oxygeneo facials shrinks the appearance of pores, plumps, hydrates and brightens skins, reduces hyperpigmentation and leaves skin silky smooth. 

The Oxygneo facial is done in three steps. First, an aesthetician gently exfoliates the skin. Next, antioxidants and nutrients are infused into the skin. Last, the Oxygenation process begins. Therefore, you definitely get a lot of “bang for your buck” with Oxygeneo due to the amazing benefits of each step of the facial. The other great news is the Oxygeneo works for nearly all skin types!

The best part? Results are not only immediate, but continue to have a positive effect on the skin long after a treatment. This is because the Oxygeneo facial increases circulation in the skin thereby slowing down the aging process and improving skins appearance. 

Side effects of the treatment are very minimal. During the treatment, a mild burning and discomfort can occur. However, because the oxygen is generated from within, post treatment redness and discomfort will be extremely minimal. Sunscreen is recommended if you are going into direct sunlight and you can put on makeup, shower, and work out as normal.

Botox is an amazing way to treat fine lines and wrinkles. However, for many, Botox treatments are not a viable option. Botox is  expensive and is not recommended for many people due to certain medical conditions. The good news is that there are currently options on the market that replicate the effects of Botox. Two of the most popular alternative treatments are called radio frequency (RF) and microcurrent facials. 

Lets first examine radio frequency (RF) facials. RF facials cause three things to happen to the skin. First, the RF facial system first heats the skin, causes collagen to shrink, and as a result, tightens the skin. Next, the RF facial  stimulates the production of new collagen, thereby making the skin appear elastic and youthful. Last, the RF facial stimulates the production of collagen fibers which also tightens and revitalizes the skin. One can see immediate results 1-3 days after receiving a radiofrequency  facial. However, the great thing about the RF facial is that the results continue to improve up to 3 months prior to the treatment. 

Whereas the radio current facial focuses more on tightening the outer skin, microcurrent facials focus on the muscles under the skin. Microcurrent facials work by emitting a low level current that mimics the body’s natural current. This trains your facial muscles to strengthen, thereby lifting and tightening sagging skin. This strengthening also reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. 

It is important to note that the two treatments are best done together. It is preferable  to have the radio frequency treatment done first, followed by a microcurrent facial treatment. That is because the radio frequency facial works by warming up the facial muscles and makes them more receptive to the lifting and toning benefits of the microcurrent facial. RF facials also open up the pores due to the heat which also allows the skincare used during the microcurrent facial to go deeper into the skin. Therefore, it is best to find an aesthetician  that is knowledgeable  and trained to synchronise both treatments in order to obtain optimal results. 

Thus, if you are looking for an amazing  and cost effective alternative to botox , microcurrent and radio frequency facials could be the absolutely best replacement!

Facials can be an excellent way to help treat and clear up acne. However, there may be some acne sufferers who should temporarily refrain from getting facials for a few different reasons. Let us explore the different options for those struggling with stubborn acne.

The good news is that certain types of facials can be excellent for certain types of acne. That’s right: the effectiveness of a facial will  depend  on the type of facial and the source of acne. Acne, like many skin conditions, is not a one-size-fits-all description. The cause of acne has different sources. For those suffering from mild and/or comedonal acne (characterised by localised areas of redness, blackheads, whiteheads, mild swelling, and occasional breakouts) facials can help this type of acne. However, if one’s acne is more severe (characterised by having  20 to more than 100 whiteheads or blackheads, 15 to 50 or more inflamed bumps, or 30 to more than 125 total lesions) certain facials can actually cause more irritation. For more severe cases, it is better to first see a dermatologist and receive a prescription medication before experimenting with facials. After the severity of the acne has subsided, a patient may then receive a facial.

In addition, the type of facial will also determine the effectiveness of treating one’s acne. Today there are over a couple of dozen different facial options! Deep cleansing facials (with pore extractions), facials that use LED lights, Oxgeneo 3-in-1 facials, and microdermabrasion facials are all excellent types of facials to help heal those suffering from light to moderate cases  of acne. Therefore, it is important to seek out an aesthetician who is experienced in performing facials with the purpose of clearing and healing acne. They will help you choose the  right type of the facial as well as make a proper follow-up plan to help continue the healing process. 

Therefore, if you suffer from acne, facials can be an excellent way to help heal your skin . However, it is absolutely essential  that you speak with a qualified aesthetician about the type and severity of the acne that you suffer from in order to give you the best possible treatment plan. 

If you suffer from acne, call our team TODAY at Facial Spa Staten Island by Beautie. Let us help you determine which one of our amazing facials can help treat your skin!

Facials are definitely a beauty staple of many. They are an incredible way to relax and make your skin look and feel amazing. If money was not an issue, most people would probably opt to get one everyday. Obviously that is not realistic. So, how often should one get a facial to retain results?

The answer depends on a few factors. Not all facials are created equally.  However, the general consensus is every 4-8 weeks. This number is especially significant because our skin turns over dead skin cells every 28-32 days on average. Therefore, more than one facial every 4 weeks can actually be irritating and potentially damaging to the skin.

In addition, one’s need for a facial will depend on their type of skin and what type of facial they are seeking. For example, microdermabrasion facials should be repeated every 2-4 weeks for optimal results. Other types of facials, such as deep chemical peels, should only be used every 2-3 years!  Therefore, the frequency and type of facials should always be determined by an experienced and trained aesthetician. 

Furthermore, due to the recent influx of at-home beauty products, such as peels, exfoliators, and skin brushes, people can now “fill in the gaps” between facial appointments. For some, these at home products can be a real money and time saver. However, these products are not as effective as a facial done by a trained aesthetician, so it is still recommended to go for a facial at least a few times a year in order to receive  the best results. Skin also changes depending on the season and different lifestyle factors. Therefore, a trained aesthetician will be able to properly diagnose your skin needs and give you a proper treatment plan. 

For some, it will not be realistic to get a facial every 4-8 weeks. And that is totally okay! Any facial, no matter what the frequency, will give your skin the TLC it craves.

When you are able to get a facial, call our experts at the Facial Spa Staten Island by Beautie. We will maximize your results and make sure you leave feeling absolutely AMAZING.
