Our Latest and Greatest for Brighter Skin

Our Latest and Greatest for Brighter Skin

Jul 12th 2022

We don't mean to brag, but we offer some amazing services and products for brighter, more even-toned skin at clara and Vanguard Aesthetics. From our selection of private label and Skinceuticals vitamin C serums and moisturizers, our client favorite Retexturizing Peel Pads, our best-selling Bright Custom BlendLimelight (IPL) treatment, and our Restore and Renew Peels, we offer many options. This allows us to customize treatment recommendations for each individuals skin, budget, and desired outcome.

When adding an additional treatment option for brighter skin we wanted to solve a common pain point with existing treatments, such as chemical peels and IPL, which is the fact that these are best done in fall winter when our lifestyles are less about sun exposure and the intensity of the sun on our skin is reduced. What else can those concerned with dull, pigmented skin do the rest of the year? This is where medical grade products and sunscreens that include high levels of zinc come in. These are your year round, every day essentials to prevent damage that shows up as brown spots, lines, and wrinkles, and overall dull skin. When it comes to antioxidants, like vitamin C, vitamin E, and retinols, these provide a measure of repair to skin as well. 

What if we could "supercharge" these key ingredients and treat the skin to antioxidants (or collagen repairing exosomes!!!) with technology that allows for better penetration of these larger molecules into the skin? This is where predictive permeation or PPD device takes center stage. We chose the Neo Collagenizer brand when Dr. Susan Mikaelian was researching enhancements to injectable numbing for her Women's Intimate Wellness surgeries - labiaplasty and vaginoplasty. This same technology that allows larger molecules found in topical numbing gels and creams to penetrate the skin for faster numbing also works for key skin care ingredients. 

Under the expert guidance of Dr. Mikaelian and Neo Collagenizer expert, Dan Wray, our aesthetician, Madeline, is now able to offer the Skin Brightening treatment series. Done in a series of five weekly in-office treatments, the skin benefits from consistent introduction of Vitamin C through the treatment and the at-home use of the Vitamin C Intensive White Cream (included in the series price). Patients start and end their series with a full series of VISIA digital images to compare the surface and deeper skin improvements gained. This is an ideal pre-treatment for fall/winter IPL or peel procedures as well as an excellent booster to at-home use of medical grade vitamin C products. 

Madeline is available for free VISIA consultations on Tuesdays at our Briargate location. Services, such as the Brightening Treatment, dermaplaning, and chemical peels can be scheduled with Madeline on Mondays, Wednesday or the second Saturday of the month.
