Adopting an at-home skincare routine with medical grade and clinically studied products is essential to prolonging skin health and youthfulness. Corrective products will help with existing problems such as dark spots, hyperpigmentation, acne, dull and dry skin, sagging, fine lines, and wrinkles. We emphasize the importance of proper skincare because it enhances the outcome of your skin treatments, both surgical and non-surgical.
To complement all of our surgical and non-surgical procedures we offer comprehensive skincare packages called the Ultimate Glow and Ultimate Glow Plus. These packages are composed of multiple treatments that build upon one another to boost cell turnover and increase the production of collagen, hyaluronic acid, and human growth factor. If you have any questions regarding this procedure, feel free to contact Dr. Persky to schedule a consultation in Encino, San Fernando Valley, or Thousand Oaks.
Ideal candidates for the Ultimate Glow and Ultimate Glow Plus must be in good health and are concerned about any of the following imperfections:
- Acne scars
- Poor pigmentation
- Skin laxity
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Dull and dry skin
There is no one-size-fits-all solution that addresses all skin conditions, so finding a custom skincare product routine is best to accommodate your needs. During your consultation, ask our skincare specialist or esthetician to help you get the appropriate products for your skin.
The Ultimate Glow package is comprised of micro-needling, microdermabrasion, and an oxygen infusion facial with specialty serums. The Ultimate Glow Plus includes PCA SKIN® Peel for enhanced rejuvenation results. Typically, all treatments are completed within four to six weeks.
Micro-needling is the first step, and it is used to promote the production of collagen, growth factor, and hyaluronic acid in the skin. This technique is performed at a specific depth in the tissue to correct fine lines, pigmentation, acne scarring, and laxity. It is excellent for thin, crepey skin. Micro-needling can address multiple conditions, as the channels created during treatment allow for faster, more in-depth absorption of the medicine to the layers beneath the surface of the skin. Creating slight and controlled micro-needle trauma to the skin sends signals to the surrounding cells to heal and revitalize the treated area. While patients may experience a slight pinkness immediately after the procedure, the target area heals quickly.
Microdermabrasion is performed one week after micro-needling to increase blood circulation to the newly stimulated cells. It also removes the outermost layer of dead cells at the surface, exposing the previously treated skin. Microdermabrasion is a mechanical way to exfoliate dead skin, using crystals or a diamond abrasive tip that is passed gently over the skin. When this is done, the cells are loosened and suctioned away from the surface, revealing new cells that can absorb corrective serums and products. These treatments result in a smoother and healthier appearance.
PCA SKIN® Peel
PCA SKIN® Peel is a part of the Ultimate Glow Plus package. This chemical peel is used one to two weeks after the microdermabrasion step to remove dead skin cells and continue building collagen and elastin. It can also tighten the skin, targeting lines and wrinkles that may need more aggressive treatment. All skin types can benefit from customized peels, even those with multiple skin conditions such as weak capillaries, redness, pigmentation, acne, and overall dullness of the skin. Though the PCA Skin® Peel requires a slightly longer recovery, patients are rewarded with brighter, tighter, and healthier-looking skin.
Oxygen infusion is used to trigger healing responses and generate healthy living cells. The oxygen infusion facial also incorporates hydrating serums and hyaluronic acid to replenish the skin. Healthy skin cells can retain products and nutrients, including oxygen that has been introduced with serums. This procedure creates a high level of hydration and plumps cells, resulting in supple, glowing skin. With a continuous application of high-grade skincare products that complement this package, your results will be long lasting and continue to improve over time.
