8 Skincare Myths Uncovered

Do you take a Beauty Myth as a Rule? You better think twice!

Beauty myths run rampant throughout our lives. They are often shared as facts. We hear about them on social media, from our moms, and friends, but some beauty myths are just that: Myths.
While science is helping us debunk these myths one by one, many of us are still lost when it comes to what we should believe about skincare claims and what’s purely made up.

In this blog, we’re uncovering the Truth Behind the Skincare Myths to help you make better choices for your skin!

Myth: Packaging doesn’t matter, what counts most is what’s inside.

The safety of cosmetic packaging | Article | Packaging Europe

Fact: Packaging is a crucial component of skincare products. If the packaging exposes what’s inside to light and air, that could mean the key ingredients will lose effectiveness much sooner.

It’s best to look for skincare products with bio-active ingredients that only come packaged in containers that are airtight or keep air and fingers out as much as possible and that are opaque or have UV-coating to protect them from both light and air.  DESUAR Spa, guarantees fact-checked products for every visit!

Myth: Clean Beauty guarantees a safe and natural product.

Clean Beauty: A Significant Trend - Prospector Knowledge Center

Fact: Good skincare is about a smart combination of ingredients that are safe and effective. The truth is far more nuanced than simply believing everything natural is good and anything chemical is bad.

Some organic and natural skincare is great, especially for those who don’t struggle with many skin concerns, but some can be irritating and clog pores. Botanicals, essential oils, and plant extracts can be irritants, so those with sensitive skin are better off selecting lab-made products formulated for sensitive skin. Some natural oils, such as grapeseed, rosehip, and marula oil, are great for treating skin concerns and can work wonders when used in tandem with chemically produced ingredients.

Myth: Skincare Products that contain sulfates, parabens, and mineral oil pose a risk to your health.

Fact: Sulfates, parabens, and mineral oil are brilliant ingredients in the world of skincare with decades of research proving their efficacy and safety, yet they continue to be wrongly vilified and maligned. Just when we think the unfair negative hype about them had subsided, it gears up again, often adding new misleading information to the story.

Parabens are a food-grade preservative and are also found naturally in plants such as raspberry, cherry, carrot, and onions. Mineral oil is a colorless, odorless oil that’s considered completely safe and benign on the skin.

Myth: Skincare products work best at night because skin repairs itself while you sleep.

Winter Skincare: Perfect night skincare for winter season

Fact: Your skin is receptive to and benefits from a wide variety of ingredients no matter the time of day. Your skin isn’t keeping track of what time of day it is, so use products and ingredients based on what works best for your routine. Sunscreen of course is the obvious exception since it is only needed during daylight hours.

Based on the research, the optimal time for skin or the body to heal is during the day when our bodies are active and in motion. This further stimulates blood flow, oxygen, cell renewal, and other body functions which aids in the overall healing and maintenance processes.

Myth: You should choose either a BHA or AHA exfoliant and never use them together.

 

Fact: For some people, AHAs and BHAs can be used together – with either alternating use or applying at the same time – with extremely positive results.

The key reason for using an AHA and BHA exfoliant at the same time is whether your skin needs more thorough exfoliation. This might be the case for those who have advanced signs of sun damage, deep wrinkles, stubborn clogged pores, bumps, or persistent dull, flaky skin.

 

 

 

Myth: A tingling sensation when using a product guarantees its work.

Do Skin Care Products Need To Tingle To Prove They're Working? | HuffPost Life

Fact: Trying higher concentrations of exfoliating ingredients would cause some people to experience a slight, short-lived tingling sensation. Sometimes, this is just the skin’s initial response to a bioactive ingredient. In the case of exfoliating acids, the benefits these provide overweigh the brief irritation.

Ideally, this sensation will subside once the skin acclimates to the exfoliating ingredient. If it does not, it would be best to stop using the product (if may be too much for your skin.)

The most common ingredients that cause a cool or tingling sensation on the skin include denatured or SD alcohol, menthol, menthyl lactate, peppermint oil, camphor, and eucalyptus. Avoid products that contain these ingredients, especially when they are among the first ingredients listed.

Myth: Niacinamide, Vitamin C or Retinol are not advisable to use altogether.

What Are the Top Niacinamide Benefits for Skin? | SELF

Fact: Retinol, vitamin C, and niacinamide can be used together without concern. In fact, using all three has a synergistic impact which enhances your results.

Although all these superstar ingredients are incredibly effective on their own, research has shown that combining niacinamide with retinol can keep skin calm and enhance tolerability while retinol works its wrinkle-fighting magic. These two ingredients work in different yet complementary ways to reduce signs of aging, while also addressing other issues like enlarged pores and uneven skin tone. It’s also safe to use both niacinamide and vitamin C, either together in the same product, or combined from different products that you layer one over the other.

Whenever you’re incorporating new active ingredients or combining advanced formulas, it’s smart to introduce them into your routine gradually. As long as your skin tolerates them well, you can increase the frequency of use as desired.

Myth: Dark circles can be easily corrected if you get the right eye cream

Best Photo App to Remove Dark Circles Under Eyes In 2022 | PERFECT

Fact: Getting rid of dark cycles can be very difficult but even more so if you’ve inherited the problem as a family trait. When the cause of your dark circles is inherited an eye cream won’t be of much help but lasers and certain cosmetic corrective procedures might be able to help.

Some dark circles around the eyes respond well to ingredients like niacinamide, retinol, vitamin C, and azelaic acid. Applying a leave-on alpha or beta hydroxy acid exfoliant and of course, daily application of mineral-based sunscreen can also help. But if you have a genetic/physiological propensity for dark circles, it’s going to take more than skincare to address the underlying causes.

We believe that making the best choices for your skin starts with understanding the truth about skincare. We’re here to help you stay on top of all the beauty myths – old and new – so you can feel confident about your products and skincare routine.

How to improve your skin with Microchanneling?

Beauty is always something everyone desires to have, and there are wide array of treatments,
products and services in the market, and sometimes, it can be hard to keep track! It’s especially
hard to determine which are actually beneficial and provide visible results in comparison to
mediocre treatments that won’t do the trick. Ultimately, it all boils down to what is best for you,

The most reliable and easiest way to determine which procedures you should be getting

regularly is to schedule a skin assessment with a qualified professional in the aesthetic field.
At DESUAR Spa, we offer the best of procedures targeting what your skin really needs
addressing its problems offering a more more in-depth treatments like Procell Microchanneling
Facial, which can be an excellent choice for anyone who wants to address certain skin
conditions or just needs to freshen up their appearance!

What Is Microchanneling?

Microchanneling is a go to treatment for acne scars, surgery scars and stretch marks. Scars improvement occurs by breaking down the old tissue and fostering the development of healthier skin. It is a procedure that produces a controlled wound response in the outermost layer of dead skin while forming channels that stimulate the body to repair and fill these microscopic perfusions by generating new collagen and elastin. During the process, a serum containing stem cells are introduced through the channels feeding the cells all the nutrients needed in the repairing/rebuilding process providing even more profound results.

Microchanneling involves a 3-stage process:

Micro-needles create micro-channels – Precision micro-needles are tapped into the skin creating uniform micro-channels. A single pass over the face will create hundreds of thousands of micro-channels.

Stimulation of a healing response – Each micro-channel is surrounded by healthy tissue, which enhances the healing process. In response to each micro-injury, an inflammatory healing process begins which initiates the formation of new collagen.

Smoothening of Skin – Over time, the repeated healing process will build new collagen, creating healthier skin, improving the surface texture and the overall appearance of the skin.

What is ProCell Microchanneling?

to produce healthy new skin. Procell Microchanneling will have your skin feeling young and fresh! 

Is Microchanneling Helpful for Acne?

Acne is a skin condition most common in teens and young adults. It can be found anywhere on the body and is a skin condition that consists of small pimples that can be either white or black. These blackheads and whiteheads are commonly known as comedowns.

  • Blackheads: Blackheads are the pimples formed when someone has acne. These pimples open on the surface of the skin and have a black appearance because of the reaction it has to oxygen present in the air.

  • Whiteheads: Whiteheads on the other hand are closed under the surface of the skin, since they’re not interacting with the oxygen present in the air, they have a white appearance.

For those that suffer from acne-related problems, microchanneling can be a great solution as it helps boost topical serums and nutrients into the skin by a whopping 300%. This helps your skin rejuvenate faster and also conceals scar tissues and fine lines that are quite prevalent in acne.

Why is Microdermabrasion popular?

DESUAR Spa | Day Spa Services in Downtown Los Angeles

Why is Microdermabrasion so popular?

Known to be the most popular skin clinic and beauty salon staples, those that spent some time in the aesthetic skin care industry will agree that microdermabrasion is really a facial superstar.

This treatment has always been a popular treatment on the high street since it gained some traction in the 1990s, and has remained as popular as ever. Various different dermabrasion treatments have appeared over the course of time. As far back as 1500BC Egyptian physicians would use a type of sandpaper to abrase the top layer of the skin to remove scars.

Essentially, there are two main components of microdermabrasion: peeling and cleansing. The abrasive material painlessly buffs away dead skin cells and encourages healthier skin to grow in its place. The suction helps to remove dirt and debris from the surface of the skin and within the pores. You don’t need to do much to prepare for microdermabrasion, but your dermatologist can help you determine whether the process is right for you and offer advice on preparation. If you scar easily or are prone to cold sores, microdermabrasion might not be for you. Depending on your needs, a session can last anywhere from ten minutes to over an hour. Your skin might look red or flaky following a microdermabrasion session, but thankfully that doesn’t last more than a few days in the most extreme cases. Results are visible not long after a session, as your skin is very quick to repair and grow following an abrasive treatment.

The Microdermabrasion Machine

The first microdermabrasion machine was invented in Italy in 1985 by two Doctors, Mattioli and Brutto. These rose to popularity through the 1990s and became commonplace in skin clinics throughout the early 2000s.

These microdermabrasion machines collected the abraded skin and siphoned it into a container instead of it be aerosolized, which could cause infection to the practitioner.

Microdermabrasion Machine | HydroLUX for sale | MedicalSearch AustraliaThe machine have become very easily accessible for both professionals and those wishing to treat themselves at home. The professional microdermabrasion machines are also more affordable than other more advanced treatments such as radio frequency and photo rejuvenation. These often means it’s a go to first machine to buy for skin businesses.

The rise in the availability of home care machines does come with some potential problems, however.

There are currently no manufacturing performance standards that have been set for microdermabrasion machines. The FDA has classified that microdermabrasion machines are a class 1 medical device. This means machines don’t need clinical efficiency to be sold.

Benefits of Microdermabrasion

The reason for the popularity of microdermabrasion is that it is a feel-good treatment. It helps improve many skin problem areas with minimal downtime and works on all skin types and skin colors. You can feel it doing something, you can see the exfoliated skin, your skin appears smoother and brighter. It is most often performed on the face but can be performed on upper thighs, buttocks, abdomen and hips. Prior to treatment, a consultation should be done with a dermatologist to go over your skin type and how the procedure will work. As you prepare for treatment after the consult, avoid sunburns, do not wax or shave the treatment area, and on the day of treatment, make sure all makeup is removed. Once you are prepared, treatment can begin.

1. TREATS THE SIGNS OF AGING

Microdermabrasion is an excellent treatment for wrinkles, fine lines and other signs of aging. It allows more collagen and hyaluronic acid to be produced. In turn, skin following a microdermabrasion session is smoother and healthier. Another common change that aging skin undergoes is the appearance of discolored patches of skin or age spots. Microdermabrasion can help to treat these and even out skin tone by eliminating the melanocytes responsible for the darker tones. Your self-esteem might see a significant boost following a microdermabrasion treatment.

2. TREATS ACNE

Microdermabrasion is effective at treating facial and body acne in the short term, drastically reducing the severity and duration of a breakout. The main cause of acne is excess levels of sebum, or oil in the skin. Microdermabrasion cleanses existing oil and inhibits future overproduction by removing the layer of skin most responsible for producing oil. In a much cleaner, less oily environment, new skin is much healthier and less prone to acne.

3. IT IS SAFE

Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive, superficial peeling therapy. It acts as a manual and chemical exfoliant. During the procedure, a technician uses a minimally abrasive instrument to remove dead skin cells and promote growth of fresh skin cells. Microdermabrasion has been FDA-approved since 1996 and is widely practiced by cosmetic dermatologists and aestheticians.

4. RESULTS ARE QUICK AND LONG LASTING

If dull, tired-looking skin is plaguing you, a microdermabrasion treatment might be just what you’re looking for. The procedure brightens skin within a few hours to a few days post-treatment. You can typically expect to see results from just one treatment, though you might opt for ongoing sessions to keep skin looking refreshed and revived. While not guaranteed, results can often last up to a year.

5. IT IS FASTER, EASIER AND MORE AFFORDABLE THAN OTHER TREATMENTS

Microdermabrasion is quick and convenient, typically lasting no more than 30 minutes. The procedure itself is virtually painless and while some mild redness and irritation might occur immediately following treatment, it subsides within a few days at most.

Compared to other skin resurfacing treatments, microdermabrasion is much more cost-effective and requires minimal downtime. You can opt to get a microdermabrasion treatment on its own or as an add-on service during another type of facial treatment. It’s best to consult with a specialist who can make recommendations depending on your specific concern and skin type.

Remember to always book your microdermabrasion treatments at a dermatology and cosmetic center. At-home treatments are not as effective and can damage the skin. A licensed dermatologist will ensure that this treatment is right for you and perform the treatment safely. Your dermatologist can answer your questions about microdermabrasion and other exfoliating therapies at a consultation appointment.

The skin experts at DESUAR Spa are proud to offer microdermabrasion among our cosmetic treatments. Conveniently located in Downtown LA and Hollywood, Desuar Spa is a place where you can spend an hour of your time experiencing an amazing high-end therapeutic, skin, or body treatment.

Dermaplane: The Peach Fuzz Solution

DESUAR Spa | Day Spa Services in Downtown Los Angeles

Do you have large pores, unwanted facial hair, and uneven skin texture? Read on as we tackle one of the go-to treatment of many today.

Laser Genesis: The Ultimate Way To Minimize Pores | Vein & Laser Institute

Our skin is daily exposed to harsh environmental toxins, irritants, and sun damage. This can cause the top layer of your skin to appear dull, and it can make you look aged.

Among the many treatments we have on the market, there is this one who is making a buzz by providing greater results against peach fuzz and considered to be the best exfoliant for all- The Dermaplaning. This is also one of the most sought after treatment at DESUAR Spa- the haven that provides quality treatment to the many people who wanted to look good and feel great of themselves.

But what is a Dermaplane and what it does to your skin?

Dermaplaning is a skin treatment that exfoliates your skin and skim off dirt and vellus hair, better known as “peach fuzz.” It’s also called microplaning or blading. It aims to make your skin’s surface smooth, youthful, and radiant. This treatment claims to remove deep scarring from acne and uneven pockmarks on your skin.

It’s different from dermabrasion, where an aesthetician or doctor uses a high-speed, rotating brush to exfoliate the skin. With dermaplaning, they use a scalpel or a tool called a dermatome. The doctor or aesthetician moves the dermatome, which looks like an electric razor, back and forth to scrape off the top layer of dead skin.

If you look at the tool used for dermaplaning treatments, you may notice it looks like a razor you would use on your body hair.

The basic concept of dermaplaning is the same as shaving. By aiming a sterile blade at a 45-degree angle and dragging it slowly across your skin, you remove dead cells, scar tissue, and other debris that may be making your skin’s surface look uneven.

Benefits of Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning Facial Is So Much More Than Shaving Your Face

According to WebMD, The exfoliation and hair removal can leave your skin brighter and smoother. The treatment may soften fine lines and wrinkles and ease hyperpigmentation, or uneven skin tone. It’s also used to treat deep acne scars. How well it works really depends on your skin type, tone, and medical history.

Dermaplaning is a manual exfoliation meant to be performed primarily on the face. Also known as leveling the skin or blading, it involves the use of a sterile surgical blade, known as a dermatome, that gently scrapes away the top layer of problem skin. The dermatome is held against taut skin at a 45-degree angle and stroked in a manner similar to shaving.

This method removes the outermost layer of dead skin cells, leaving the skin smooth and supple.

Dermaplaning is usually only performed on the face and generally excludes any blading of the nose, eye lids, neck, or chest. It is recommended that the procedure be done every 3 to 4 weeks (or once a month), which coincides with a normal skin cycle of approximately 30 days.

Dermaplaning is wonderful for exfoliating the skin and for those that have peach fuzz on their face. It removes this along with dead skin cells, resulting in healthier looking skin. This treatment is great for someone who has sensitive skin or facial hair that does not respond to laser hair removal. Removal of this outer layer of dead skin cells and fine hair enhances the penetration and speed of your personal skin care regimen. It is great for priming the skin for a Chemical Peel.

After the treatment, your make up will go on better and your skin will be very smooth. This is a no downtime procedure.

Risks and Side Effects

Dermaplaning is a low-risk procedure. Side effects may include slight redness in your face in the hours after getting the treatment. Some people develop whiteheads on their skin in the day or two after dermaplaning.

Infection and scarring are rare after dermaplaning, but they do occur. If you develop a scar from dermaplaning, your doctor may need to treat the scar tissue with a steroid injection to soften the scar tissue.

Another possible side effect is a patchy skin pigment in the area where you have the procedure, which may decrease or disappear as time goes on.

Short-term side effects may include:

  • Red and swollen skin from the scraping
  • Soreness
  • A burning or tingling sensation for about 48 hours after the procedure
Dermaplaning isn’t recommended if you have inflammatory skin conditions such as:

Where Can You Get It?

It’s best to go to a licensed aesthetician or doctor in DESUAR Spa if you’re thinking about trying dermaplaning.

Do-it-yourself kits and tools are available online and at your local drugstore. But because you’re using a very sharp blade, you may cut your skin when you scrape it. This can lead to infection or other problems.

Schedule an appointment with DESUAR Spa if you’re concerned about your skin because it feels great to look good.

PlaSon: The Ultimate Acne Treatment!

DESUAR Spa | Day Spa Services in Downtown Los Angeles

Suffering from significant distress from acne? wrinkles? scars?

For many people who have acne, the skin disease affects more than their appearance. Acne can take a toll on one’s emotional health. Researchers have found in study after study that people with acne can also develop:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Low self-esteem
  • Poor self-image
  • Decreased quality of life
  • A feeling of being all alone

Even mild acne can affect one’s emotional health. This is especially true for teenage girls. In studies, teen girls often say that acne makes them feel unattractive.

Given that acne can lead to such experiences and feelings, it’s not surprising that researchers have found that people with acne often develop depression or anxiety.

Studies show that the longer acne lasts, the more likely it is to affect one’s emotions. Without treatment, acne can also worsen. If acne becomes severe, scars can appear as the acne clears.

DO I HAVE TO DO ANYTHING IN PARTICULAR AFTER THE PLASON TREATMENT?

  • Immediately after the treatment the skin may be slightly red, this is normal and will pass in the next 20 minutes or so
  • Please do not place any products on the skin after the treatment for 4-6 hrs, unless supplied by your esthetician

  • Try not to touch the treated area for 1 hour after treatment
  • Do not shower or get the treated area wet for 4-6 hours
  • Please take regular photographs of your progress/healing to share with us

  • Please consult with your esthetician regarding SPF

  • If in any doubt please contact your esthetician

Early treatment can prevent these problems. It can clear the skin and prevent acne from worsening. Some people need to continue treating their skin to prevent breakouts. For most people that’s probably a lot easier than dealing with the emotional distress and permanent acne scars.

Go and achieve that youthful and glowing skin with us!
