None of us are strangers to stress—from juggling work and family to the unexpected bumps life can throw our way. With so much going on, it is easy for self care to be put on the back burner. That has been especially true of the past few years, when working, schooling and raising a family during a pandemic caused many people’s personal needs to fall to the wayside—a tricky cycle that only exacerbates stress. SLUCare Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery in Creve Coeur offers medical spa services that can soothe and relax so you can put your best self forward.
Now is an ideal time to schedule an appointment for fresher-looking skin, according to clinical esthetician Paige Campbell. “We love seeing the confidence boost clients get from healthier skin—especially after the stress of the pandemic,” she says. “People have been so glad to get back to caring for themselves after taking care of everyone else.” Facials, laser treatments, microdermabrasion, broadband light and chemical peels are among the most popular nonsurgical services available at the medical spa. Dr. Frank Simo and Dr. Collin Chen also see patients for more in-depth services, including cosmetic or functional plastic surgery and reconstructive procedures for the head and neck.
Through personalized rejuvenating services, the medical spa treats a variety of skin conditions. These include hyperpigmentation, scarring, acne, rosacea, sun damage, wrinkles, fine lines and other effects of aging. Campbell notes that patients love the convenience and flexibility of having multiple conditions treated at one location and in one appointment. “A client might come in and say, ‘I want to have laser hair removal, a facial with dermaplaning and treatment for brown pigmentation all in one visit,” she says. “We are a one-stop site for skin services, and we can help with all of these issues.”
Campbell says that at this time of year, many clients choose to have microdermabrasion and dermaplaning done to prepare for summer and important events, such as weddings and vacations. “Microdermabrasion helps remove dead cells and brightens your skin,” she explains. “It also helps to stimulate collagen and elastin production, and it can be customized based on your needs and skin type.” Dermaplaning exfoliates your skin in a similar way, as well as helping to remove fine hairs and improve skin texture. Depending on their individual needs, medical spa visitors can choose to combine treatments for optimal results.
No matter your stress level, fresher, healthier, more youthful-looking skin is always achievable, and SLUCare Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery is ready to help you meet that goal. Along with offering in-office treatments, experts can suggest products to supplement procedures at home, such as serums, toners, moisturizer and sunblock that protect and nourish your skin. To ensure you achieve your desired results, injectables and fillers are available as well. “Scheduling a visit is a positive step toward personal well-being,” Campbell says. “Taking care of yourself on the outside does you good on the inside.”
