Spa Facials: Cold Weather Skin Care Tips

Spa Facial Cold Weather Tips Emerge Tulsa

Spa facials help rejuvenate your skin and achieve a natural glow at any time of year. Keeping your skin looking great during the winter can be a challenge, even with a facial to bring back your skin’s health. Today’s blog from Emerge Medical & Well Spa, where we do many types of spa facials, discusses some cold weather skincare tips to keep you looking and feeling your best.

Moisturize

The air is dryer during winter months. You probably also take hot baths and showers because the air feels cooler, even if you turn the heat up in your home. Higher-temperature water dries out your skin more than cool water. When you combine hot showers with more handwashing to avoid spreading germs, you get the perfect recipe for dry skin. Take advantage of your favorite moisturizer to keep your skin soft and supple during the winter. The spa facial experts at Emerge Tulsa can recommend products for you. 

Rely on Gentle Cleansers

Use gentle cleansers on your skin. Harsh products may strip moisture from your skin rather than preserve it. Cold weather means your skin needs all the help it can get! Do yourself a favor and use gentle products with natural ingredients or ones without fragrances. Spa facials can use gentle products on your skin to preserve its natural glow. 

Lower Your Air and Water Temperature

Hot temperatures for your indoor air and shower water dry out your skin more compared to cooler temperatures. Keep your air temperature lower and bundle up with a sweatshirt or sweater. Take warm showers rather than hot showers. Some of our spa facial regimens can help your skin recover from dryness, although we recommend less exfoliating during cold weather.

Use a Humidifier 

A humidifier can help your skin stay pliable in your home, whether you use a small model for a single room or invest in a whole-house humidifier. Humid air in the winter can also alleviate allergies or colds, in addition to being healthier for your skin! See how our spa facials can help relieve symptoms associated with dry air.

Eat Healthy

Much of your winter skincare routine comes from the outside, such as spa facials and gentle moisturizers. However, your skin’s health also comes from beneath the surface. Eat healthy foods that support your skin’s health, such as lean meats, nuts, and fish. Antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables also help keep your skin feeling great, including cranberries, blueberries, pumpkin, pomegranate, and squash.

Lip Injections: Frequently Asked Questions

Lip Injection Emerge Tulsa

Lip injections may sound like a complicated cosmetic procedure. Rest assured, getting a lip injection is entirely safe and the results are outstanding! Read Emerge Tulsa’s FAQs about this service to find out more.

Are lip injections safe?

Yes, lip injections are completely safe. The FDA has approved more than 30 types of dermal fillers (the substances injected into your lips) considered safe for this type of enhancement.

Is there any pain associated with lip injections?

Yes, there is pain associated with lip injections, but it’s usually minor. Our staff numbs the area first, either with a topical anesthetic or a dental nerve block like novocaine.

After we inject the filler, you may feel a dull throbbing. We may ice down your lips for a few minutes to reduce any swelling at the injection site. Pain should stay minor and manageable with over-the-counter painkillers or antihistamines after the procedure is complete.

What’s in those syringes?

The main ingredient of dermal fillers is hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in your body. It helps increase volume while improving the shape and structure of your lips. We also use collagen injections, but hyaluronic acid achieves better results.

Are there side effects to lip injections?

Yes, there are side effects to this procedure. The main side effect of lip injections is beautiful lips! 

Minor side effects include:

  • Pain and swelling, which usually lasts for 24 hours 
  • Redness 
  • Bruising 
  • Bleeding from the lip injection sites 

These minor side effects normally go away after a few days.

More serious side effects of lip injections may include:

  • Severe bruising that lasts up to 10 days
  • Infection
  • Scarring or stiffening of the lips
  • Allergic reaction
  • Lip asymmetry
  • Lumps and irregularities on the lips

Please note that these serious side effects are rare compared to the minor ones. 

How many lip injections will I need?

The number of lip injections you need depends on the effects you’re trying to achieve. The results you see from a single injection are instantaneous, but we don’t want to overwhelm your lips by trying to achieve the full effects in one session. We may need a few weeks of lip injections to achieve your desired results.

What kinds of lip injections do you do at Emerge Medical & Well Spa?

We utilize a dozen different types of lip injections at Emerge Tulsa. Choose from Botox, Juvederm, Kybella, ArqueDerma, and more. Contact Emerge Medical & Well Spa or call (918) 392-8606 for more details.

How to Care for Your Skin After Laser Treatment

Laser treatment can address many skin concerns, including scarring, redness, and pigmentation. Following a treatment, it’s essential to take care of your skin so you can have a clear and smooth complexion. If you’re wondering what the best post-treatment procedure is, Emerge Medical and Well Spa is here to help. Today, we share some tips for skin care after a laser treatment.

Expect Downtime

When you have laser treatment, your skin will be delicate and easily irritated. Your expected downtime can vary, depending on the depth and type of the laser. But it can take several days or weeks to completely heal and show maximum results. If you use the wrong skin care products, such as retinol and harsh cleansers, they can damage your skin.

Wear a High SPF Sunscreen

After the laser treatment, sun protection should be your top priority. Your skin is very sensitive in the healing phase, and dark spots could form if you don’t wear a good SPF sunscreen. Wear sunscreen that offers an SPF of 30 or above to protect against both UVA and UVB rays.

Keep Your Skin Clean

For optimal results, keep your skin moist, hydrated, and clean. Avoid high impact exercise and stay away from acid-based or exfoliating cleansers. Instead, use a product like Aquaphor or another gentle moisturizer to cleanse your skin. You may need to limit your makeup as well. Consult the team at Emerge about which ingredients are right for you and when you can begin wearing makeup again.

Reduce Inflammation

Comfort is another aspect of good skin care. If your skin appears swollen and red after your laser treatment, apply cooling packs and cold compresses to the area. You can use an extra pillow (or two) to sleep in an elevated position to help alleviate inflammation.

How to Care for Your Skin After a Chemical Facial Peel

woman smiling and applying facial skin care productsChemical facial peels are great for treating and reversing a number of skin conditions, like hyperpigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles, and even acne! They work to remove the outer layer of your skin and reveal a new brighter and smoother layer of skin. After a chemical peel, your skin can be temporarily vulnerable and delicate. Because of this, it’s important that you follow these post-peel skin care tips! 

Avoid Direct Sun Exposure

The most important post-peel skin care tip is to avoid direct exposure to the sun. Since your new layer of skin is so delicate, sun exposure can cause burns and even more visible signs of aging. If you find that you must be exposed to the sun, make sure to use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF30 or higher to protect your skin. 

Moisturize

Reinforcing your skin’s protective barrier that was removed during your facial peel is an important step in taking care of your skin. Use a medium or thick moisturizer, and be sure to drink plenty of water to avoid dehydration!

Don’t Over Exfoliate

Chemical facial peels are designed to provide maximum exfoliation, so you won’t have to exfoliate for at least 3 or 4 days after your peel! Over exfoliating can be detrimental to your delicate post-facial skin and can leave you feeling red and sensitive. 

If you decide to get a facial peel, make sure to follow these steps for the best results. Once your skin goes back to normal you can resume your skin care regimen and reap the benefits of glowing, exfoliated, and illuminated skin!

Benefits of PicoWay Tattoo Removal

Woman laying down on stomach going through laser tattoo removal on her backIf you decide that you want your tattoo removed, it’s important to know that not all tattoo removal services are the same. Just like tattoo shops, some tattoo removal treatments are more effective than others, and some tattoo removal shops are cleaner than others! To help you with your decision, Emerge Medical & Well Spa in Tulsa is here today to talk about the benefits of PicoWay Tattoo Removal. 

It’s Fast and Comfortable

Unlike traditional laser tattoo removal, PicoWay uses ultra fast bursts of energy to target ink for a quicker and more comfortable delivery. 

It Works on All Tattoos

Traditional laser tattoo removal had varying results based on the size, placement, color, and even the quality of the tattoo. PicoWay has changed the game by offering a process that can break up the ink into tiny particles, making it effective on any tattoo!

It Works on All Skin Tones

Traditional laser tattoo removal was also limited to individuals with lighter skin tone, and was particularly ineffective and even damaging to those with more natural pigment. That is not the case with PicoWay! This technology is both safe and effective for all skin tones.

Faster Results

Clients who undergo PicoWay tattoo removal can see results in half the time of those who have undergone traditional laser tattoo removal! That means less pain, more efficient delivery, and less time with an unwanted tattoo.

Benefits of Using Kybella to Get Rid of Your Double Chin

Woman holding her face and smilingSubmental fullness, or “double chin,” can be the result of genetics, aging, or even weight gain. If you are someone who is bothered by submental fullness and you don’t want to pay for plastic surgery, the Kybella treatment at Emerge Medical & Well Spa in Tulsa can be right for you! So, what exactly is Kybella? And what are the benefits? Read on to learn more. 

What Is Kybella?

Kybella is an FDA approved injection made of a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule found in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When Kybella is injected directly into the unwanted fat under the chin, it destroys those fat cells and reduces fullness for a more youthful appearance. 

This being said, Kybella has a number of added benefits that make it not only a great alternative to surgery but a great stand-alone option for getting rid of unwanted submental fullness! Here are the benefits you can expect from this injection.

No Surgery

One of the more obvious benefits of Kybella is that you do not have to go under the knife or anesthesia like you would with plastic surgery! Kybella involves a series of small injections under the chin with minimal downtime for lasting results. 

Related Post: Kybella, Huh? Emerge Explains

It’s Permanent

Unlike other cosmetic injections, the results of Kybella are meant to be permanent. This injection permanently destroys fat cells, and once they are gone they can no longer store or accumulate fat! 

It’s Fast and Easy

At Emerge Medical & Well Spa, the Kybella injection procedure involves a brief series of injections that last only about 20 minutes. The number of injections you receive depends on the results you desire, there is little to no downtime, and there are typically little to no side effects.

The Benefits of Dermaplaning

You might have heard about dermaplaning, but maybe you don’t know exactly what it is and what it can do for your skin. Well, you’re in luck! In today’s blog, the professionals at Emerge Medical & Well Spa in Tulsa are going to explain what this beauty trend is all about and discuss the benefits of this exfoliating facial technique. 

What Is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a non-invasive facial peel that is used to gently exfoliate the skin. During this process, dead skin cells and peach fuzz are gently removed by gliding a scalpel across the surface of your skin. While this might sound scary, rest assured that this process doesn’t hurt one bit! Some people even claim it is quite soothing. When combined with a spa facial, this treatment can help you achieve maximum results. 

Now that you understand what dermaplaning is, let’s talk about what it can do for you and your skin. 

Removes Peach Fuzz

Dermaplaning is a great way to get rid of unwanted peach fuzz or excess facial hair. And the best part is that your hair won’t grow back thicker or faster like it might when you use a razor on your face.

Anti-Aging

Dermaplaning can help your skin look fresh and young by shaving off the top layer of dead skin. This will effectively reduce the look of wrinkles and lines, hyperpigmentation, and acne scars, leaving you with glowing, revitalized, and younger-looking skin!

Reduces Pores and Acne

Dermaplaning’s exfoliating properties effectively reduce the size of pores on your face, helping to deter build-up of oil and dirt. This will also help improve the effectiveness of your acne treatments!

Smoother Makeup Application

Last but not least, dermaplaning will leave your skin feeling clean and soft, allowing your makeup to glide onto your skin unbelievably smooth! Without the excess peach fuzz and dead skin cells, your makeup won’t get blotchy and you can say goodbye to uneven skin.

Dermaplaning Is Not for Everyone

While dermaplaning can give you great results, it’s important to note that it may not be for everyone. If you have sensitive skin, excessively oily skin, or are prone to breakouts, it’s best to consult with our professionals before having this treatment done. 

Try Dermaplaning at Emerge Medical & Well Spa

If you think you’re a good candidate for dermaplaning and you’re ready to achieve smooth, bright skin, try dermaplaning at Emerge Medical and Well Spa in Tulsa!

How to Make Your Eyelash Extensions Last Longer

Eyelash extensions are an awesome way to get the effortless beauty that everyone is searching for. While they can be pricey, eyelash extensions can save you lots of money on mascara and lots of time getting ready in the morning! Eyelash extensions typically last two or three weeks before you need a fill, but there are ways to help them last even longer! Read on to learn some tips for making your extensions last longer from the professionals at Emerge Medical & Well Spa in Tulsa. 

Don’t Touch!

As hard as it is to resist, it is important to avoid touching your eyelash extensions. Even if they look out of place, it may be because your real eyelashes are shedding as they do naturally. Let your lashes come out naturally and move your extensions with a spoolie wand if necessary. 

Detangle Regularly

To prevent your eyelashes from getting tangled, you should use your spoolie wand every morning to roll through your lashes, detangle them, and keep them defined. Do this by closing your eye and brushing your lashes from the top down the length.  

Avoid Oil-Based Products

Oil-based makeup or moisturizers can weaken the glue on your lashes and cause them to fall off prematurely. Try swapping out your eye cream for a lightweight serum, and be sure you don’t get product too close to your lashes!

Related Post: Should You Get Lash Extensions or a Lift?

Be Careful With Eyeliner

This tip may be tough if you love eyeliner, but you should try to avoid it if you can! Removing eyeliner often requires a little bit of rubbing which can cause your extensions to fall out. If you must wear eyeliner, try removing it with a cotton swab and micellar water. You can also try to apply your liner slightly above the lash line!

Clean Them Regularly

After the first few days, start using a gentle foam cleanser on your extensions. This will help your lashes stick longer and clean off any leftover makeup residue! Avoid using cotton balls or cotton pads, as the fibers can get stuck in the glue. Try using a gentle cleansing cloth or even a makeup brush to clean the lash line and avoid pulling off your lashes.
