Healthy, glowing skin doesn’t happen overnight. It takes consistent care with the right products, right routine and the right treatments to achieve and maintain that gorgeous glow that will have everyone saying…”Your skin looks ah-mazing!”
Like everything else worth having, it’s worth working for!
The team at Revitalize Aesthetics wants to give you all the tools to achieve all of your skincare goals!
Routine. Routine. Routine. We can’t say it enough!
Getting into a great, consistent routine is 90% of the work!
This routine includes two key elements:
This combo is a tried-and-true formula to help fight the effects of environmental pollutants and the aging process while keeping your skin healthy and glowing, month in and month out!
As we say in Philly…Trust the Process. The same is true with skincare.
The cumulative benefits of a complete at home skin care regimen plus monthly treatments are undeniable. You will literally see the results…smooth, flawless, balanced skin and that healthy glow.
Two things to keep in mind. Timing is important – first thing in the morning and last thing before bed at night. The order that you apply your products is equally critical. Your products should work together, building on each other…cleansing, treating, sealing and hydrating.
Morning Process includes:
Cleanser + Toner + Corrector + Serum + Moisturize w/ Sunscreen
Nighttime Process is very similar with a couple of extras:
Pre-cleanser + Cleanser + Toner + Retinol + Serum + Moisturizer
Now….here’s the important part.
If you want results, you must invest in the right products. Of course, you can always head to Target and pick up a retinol product or CVS for a serum but the results you want can only be achieved with a medical grade skin care product, not a cosmetic grade/over the counter product.
A thorough skin consultation is the first part of any new client appointment. The skincare professionals at Revitalize Aesthetics are trained to evaluate your skin, your concerns, and your skincare needs & goals to customize your skin care regimen with the very best products, everything you need and nothing you don’t.
There are so many products on the market and once you set your sights on starting a routine, you might get sidetracked just as quickly with all the options you are bombarded with!
We asked our very own esthetician, Casey Lynch, to share her routine to give you a peek into her hand-picked products, customized for her skin care goals, the ingredients that are non-negotiables and the results that everyone can achieve and deserves.
Casey’s skin care regimen is designed to correct skin texture from previous bouts of acne, even out skin tone, maintain a clear complexion and maintain the effects of her monthly treatments/procedures.
AM Cleanser: PCA Facial Wash – Don’t skip cleansing in the morning. If you are layering multiple products at night, oils (and dust particles from your bedding) can clog pores and result in acne. PCA Facial Wash is gentle enough to use in the morning and again at night.
AM Toner: PCA Hydrating Toner – This refreshing toner boosts moisture retention and prevents free radical damage, which makes it the perfect start to your day. PCA Hydrating Toner is also very soothing if you are exfoliating or using a retinol product at night.
AM Antioxidant: PCA C & E Advanced – This is the holy grail of Vitamin C treatments. With 20% L-ascorbic acid & tocopherol, this serum corrects pigmentation and signs of aging all while preventing future damage from the sun and environmental pollutants. As if that weren’t enough, this miracle product contains antioxidants and Vitamin E to soothe & calm the skin.
AM Serum: PCA B3 Brightening Serum – Let’s talk barrier, or acid mantle, repair. The acid mantle is a thin layer of the skin’s surface composed of lipids from your oil glands combined with amino acids. The acid mantle is part of the delicate matrix that creates a healthy skin barrier. This barrier can become damaged through overuse of acids or retinoids, over-exfoliation and cause issues like hypersensitivity, inflammation and dehydration.
AM Moisturizer w/SPF: PCA Hydrator Plus SPF 30 – THE MOST IMPORTANT STEP! It’s the jacket before you leave the house…your #1 protector against aging and, most importantly, skin cancer! Rain or shine, SPF is a MUST. Moisturizing & lightweight.
PM Pre-Cleanser: PCA Daily Cleansing Oil – If you are using anything other than an oil cleanser to remove makeup (think makeup wipes or cleanser alone), you are doing it wrong. This oil cleanser WILL remove ALL your sunscreen/makeup, without stripping your barrier.
PM Cleanser: PCA Facial Wash – The one carry-over product from Casey’s AM regimen. Gently exfoliating with lactic acid and willow bark, this cleanser will leave your skin feeling so refreshed and clean! Hint: less is more! You only need a dime sized amount!
PM Toner: PCA Soothing Toner – Perfect for those with oily or acne prone skin. Gently exfoliating with lactic acid, this toner refines pores and restores your skin’s naturally beautiful texture.
PM Retinol: PCA Intensive Age Refining Retinol – If you do not have a Vitamin A product in your routine, IT IS TIME! This product is a true multi-tasker – smooths appearance of wrinkles, corrects texture, pigmentation, acne and prevents future aging! Casey uses it 2x weekly. Note: Retinol is NOT a one-size fits all product. Its efficacy grows over time so it’s important to get the right retinol product for your skin. Consult a skin professional (like Casey!) on which retinol product is right for you and how to use it…
PM Serum: PCA Hyaluronic Acid Boosting Serum – Part 1 of Casey’s night-time hydration routine. Hyaluronic acid hydrates the skin from the inside out, offering deeper hydration and increasing the skin’s own hyaluronic acid production which reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
PM Moisturizer: PCA ReBalance – Part 2 of effective night-time hydration, this moisturizer will prevent moisture loss and seal in all that good hydration.
All the PCA Skin products that Casey uses are available at Revitalize Aesthetics. These products pair beautifully with our non-invasive cosmetic procedures, offering both daily regimens as well as corrective care. These combined offerings make Revitalize Aesthetics your one stop for amazing skin.
Truly! Monthly professional treatments with a licensed esthetician are a game changer. And the bonus, besides achieving the amazing skin you’ve always dreamed about…facials…EVERY MONTH!
Now, not all facials are created equal.
Revitalize Aesthetics monthly facial members receive a 60-minute facial every month, including a deep cleanse, skin analysis and customized exfoliation treatment, extractions will be performed, if necessary, application of serums, light massage, a finishing custom mask & LED light therapy and, 10% off all Revitalize Aesthetics products and treatments.
Now…if you really want that healthy glow, opt for a facial with dermaplaning or microdermabrasion. This treatment will elevate your daily, at-home regimen with nearly immediate impact. Here’s what makes this upgrade to your facial a difference maker…
Now stay with me…I’m going to throw some vocab your way…First up: Mechanical exfoliation. This process involves using a hard substance (think microbeads, natural material granules) to remove dead skin cells from the surface of your skin, the corneum stratum. This exfoliation technique is where that sought after healthy glow comes from…
The best part of this membership is you can set it and forget it. Put it in your calendar, repeat monthly and it just becomes part of what you do, every month.
So simple. So effective. Such results.
