Looking for that post-quarantine glow-up? Online skincare at Falls Church based Vitalia MedSpa can get you well on your way to looking polished with a tailored skincare regimen.
Keep reading to learn how the professionals can use virtual consultations to make targeted recommendations to refresh and brighten your complexion.
Why is a Skincare Regimen Important?
Many men and women continue to use the soaps and lotions they use on their bodies for their face. Why is this a mistake?
The skin on our face and neck is much thinner and more delicate. Soaps used to clean our bodies can be too harsh and irritating.
A skincare regimen can:
- Protect your skin from the sun and other environmental factors
- Address and prevent common skin complaints, like acne or hyperexfoliation
- Prevent wrinkles and other signs of aging, such as hyperpigmentation
- Keep your skin looking its best
- Allow your makeup to look its best
Scheduling an online skincare appointment with Falls Church based Vitalia MedSpa allows our aestheticians to recommend skincare that will work for your individual needs.
What Products Make a Good Skincare Regimen?
Typically, a skincare routine consists of products that cleanse, moisturize, protect, and repair the skin. Different skin types require different strategies for the best results.
After a physician-based online skincare consultation, we can determine which products will best treat the issues that cause you concern.
Vitalia Pharmaceuticals include the skincare lines Replenix and Glycolix Elite. These combine super effective moisturizers with products that can cause free-radical damage.
What Are Free Radicals?
Our Earth is made up of molecules and all molecules contain atoms. These atoms all have pairs of orbiting electrons.
Free radicals are simply molecules containing atoms with unpaired electrons, which are harmful if they get in contact with our biological systems, such as our delicate skin.
How Do Free Radicals Harm the Skin?
The skin is vulnerable and free radicals take advantage of this fact by entering the skin trying to steal electrons from our healthy cell membranes, proteins and lipids –this process is called oxidative stress.
This ultimately leads to the breakdown of the DNA of the skin, resulting in the appearance of visible aging: lines, wrinkles, unwanted pigmentation, discoloration, sagging skin, dullness and uneven skin texture.
What Are Antioxidants?
Antioxidants are vitamins and other nutrients that help protect your cells from the damaging effects of free radicals. When antioxidants encounter free radicals, which have unpaired electrons, the antioxidants bind to them.
This immediately offers up their extra electron to the free radical, neutralizing them to become balanced again, before they can harm your healthy cells. This is why antioxidants are a cornerstone of any skincare system.
Antioxidants For the Skin
At Vitalia MedSpa, many of our products are infused with antioxidants that help repair the damage your skin encounters from environmental stressors like sun, pollution, and other contaminants.
Many of our products contain antioxidants in the form of:
- Green tea complex
- Vitamins A, C and E
We have a range of cleansers, moisturizers and scrubs that target oxidative stress.
Why Use a Retinol?
In addition to the powerful antioxidants listed above, a good skincare regimen often contains a retinol product. Available in different strengths and concentrations, your skin type and goals need to be taken into account before a retinol can be selected.
Retinols offer many benefits to the skin, including:
- Diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkle
- Improving overall skin texture and tone
- Improving the look of discoloration or unwanted pigmentation
- Improving the look of acne scarring and blemishes
