3 Facial Treatments You Must Try This Summer

This summer, you’re most likely looking forward to those planned getaways. Let your healthy-looking face be your best accessory for these summer getaways with these 3 must try facial treatments at Astra Healthcare:

1. CyroProbe

If you want to get rid of those skin imperfections such as warts, skin tags and pigmented spots, the CyroProbe facial treatment is a must try.

What is CyroProbe?

CyroProbe is a fast, safe, effective and accurate tool for removing skin imperfections such as plantar warts, molluscum contagiosum, actinic keratosis, seborrheic keratosis, granuloma and cherry hemangioma.

CyroProbe is a technological advance tool used in cryosurgery – a controlled destruction of tissue by freezing. Cold treatment or freezing has been recognized for thousands of years, from the Egyptians and later to Greek physician Hippocrates, for its analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties.

The tools used for cold treatment have evolved through the years. Removing skin imperfections using CyroProbe doesn’t need anesthesia or follow-up care. Here are the benefits of CyroProbe:

• Accuracy

CyroProbe was designed from a perfectionist perspective. It allows treatment for skin imperfections as small as 1 mm up to a width of 20mm and more. This accuracy means the imperfect skin will be the one only treated, with no more collateral damage to the healthy skin.

• Ultra Cold

CyroProbe uses a disposable cartridge that holds nitrous oxide. This nitrous oxide is sprayed directly into the imperfect skin at the freezing temperature of -88°C (-127°F).

• High Pressure

CyroProbe releases a fine jet of nitrous oxide under high pressure. This high pressure results in millimeter precision, preventing damage to healthy tissue and no discomfort for patients.

2. Clear + Brilliant

If you’re battling the effects aging, Clear + Brilliant facial treatment is a must try.

What is Clear + Brilliant?

  • To ensure that your skin care professional maintains proper contact with your skin and provides a uniform application to all treated areas, Clear + Brilliant utilizes the patented Intelligent Optical Tracking™ System (IOTS™)

  • 3. Juvederm

    If you want to smooth out facial lines and wrinkles or subtly enhance your lips, then Juvederm facial treatment is a must try this summer.

    What is Juvederm?

    Juvederm is an injectable gel filler used to add volume to the face for an instantly refreshed appearance. In Juvederm treatment, hyaluronic acid – a naturally occurring sugar found in your body is combined with water in your skin to get rid of those unsightly lines and wrinkles on your face and to subtly enhance your lips.

    Hyaluronic acid is like a sponge. It absorbs over 1,000 times its weight. This aids in hydrating and moisturizing your skin, improving your overall appearance.

    Why does volume loss matter?

    Through time, your face changes in a number of ways. These facial changes can be caused by normal aging process, genetics and environmental factors. These facial changes can take the form of deepening parentheses lines and wrinkles, midface volume loss and lips volume loss. Over time, your cheeks may flatten, your skin may begin to sag and your lips may grow thin. People who have naturally thin lips have also turned to Juvederm to make their lips fuller.

    Benefits of Juvederm

    The benefits of Juvederm include:

    • Speed

    Depending on the area treated, Juvederm treatment can be performed as little as 15 to 60 minutes. Most patients need only one treatment to get the optimum results. One treatment is clinically proven to last up to 1 or 2 years.

    • Natural Look

    After your treatment, you can immediately see visible result: a revitalized and refreshed version of you. Your new look will look so natural, making everyone notice, but no one will know that you have undergone the Juvederm treatment.

    • Treatment is Reversible

    Juvederm treatment is reversible. If you don’t like the results, you can ask your cosmetic doctor to return you to your pre-filler appearance. Reversal is possible for this treatment as Juvederm is made from hyaluronic acid. – a naturally occurring substance in your body.

    Time is of the Essence

    After CyroProbe, Clear + Brilliant or Juvederm treatment, you can immediately go back to your daily routine. You may experience redness and swelling immediately after each treatment but both redness and swelling normally diminish within few hours.

    In CyroProbe, healing time can vary by the site treated. A wart wound, for instance, will heal in about one week.

    In Clear + Brilliant treatment, after one day of treatment, you may feel a “sandpaper” like texture to your skin. This is your body’s way of shedding off dead skin cells. In less than one week, this sandpaper feeling will go away.

    In Juvederm treatment, recovery time depends on person to person as people bruise differently than others. After a week or less though, this bruising will heal.

    Even as you may need a few days to recover from CyroProbe, Clear + Brilliant and Juvederm treatments, the recovery time is worth it as your skin imperfections will go away and you’ll regain that youthful and revitalized look.
