5 Reasons Why You Need Skin Rejuvenation Treatment


As the old adage says, “Be good to your skin. You’ll wear it for the rest of your life.” But what happens if you don’t? As the largest organ you have, your skin is essential to your general health, and if you take care of it, it can help take care of you! Therefore, it is so important to have a well-thought-out skincare routine. 

You may be thinking that maintaining a healthy skin routine just means cleaning and moisturizing it every day, right?  Angela Dunlap, Director of VCI Med Spa in Tinley Park, says there’s more to it than that. “Getting regular skin rejuvenation treatments is very important in keeping your skin in the best shape possible.” Dr. Eugene Tanquilut, Medical Director at VCI, explains that there are five primary reasons to get your skin professionally treated. 

1) Skin Rejuvenation Treatments Can Help Rid Your Skin Of Dirt

The benefits of skin rejuvenation treatments go beyond just soap and water for daily cleansing. “Professional treatments will detox your skin and open your pores to remove excess oil, dead skin, or just plain dirt,” says Angela. “Your pores can clog because of hormonal changes, dry skin, sun damage, or a build-up of dead skin. When pores clog, the skin closes over the top of the pore, and you get pimples.” Skin rejuvenation treatments can help rid your skin of dirt and debris. Life tends to wear on your skin more than we realize. Making sure to exfoliate and thoroughly cleanse the skin regularly, and professionally, is an essential part of a good skincare routine.

2) Skin Rejuvenation Promotes Healthy Circulation To Reduce Aging

Skin rejuvenation can increase blood flow which is essential for the skin’s internal health. Improved blood flow means better nutrient and oxygen circulation and this, in turn, improves the cellular processes while improving the skin’s elasticity. “Healthy blood flow brings oxygen to your skin,” says Dr. Tanquilut. “And it’s not just oxygen. You’ll also get a surge of nutrients that will feed your skin cells, helping them recover from any damage faster and more thoroughly. When skin is fed richly oxygenated blood and needed nutrients, it boosts cell regeneration and collagen development. This helps plump your skin, erasing fine lines.”

3) Skin Rejuvenation Treatment Will Minimize Marks, Bumps, Spots, And Scarring

Angela explains that environmental factors can make it difficult to fight the signs of aging.  Skin rejuvenation treatments use customized formulas selected by a professional to help minimize the appearance of dark spots, fine lines, acne scars, and acne itself. Moreover, these professional treatments can help improve the texture and surface of your skin while evening out your skin tone. “Chemical peels renew and exfoliate the skin, removing dead skin and exposing fresh skin that is smoother and brighter,” says Angela. “You will look rejuvenated and more youthful with just a single treatment – and regular treatments will only increase those benefits.”

4) Professionals Will Do Skin Rejuvenation Treatment In The Right Way

If you’re getting DIY beauty tips from Google, you might want to proceed with caution — all-natural doesn’t equal “all good” when it comes to skincare. As Dr. Tanquilut puts it, “When you use a certified, educated, and trained professional, your treatment will be successful. At VCI Med Spa, our team of technicians is of the highest quality, nurses or nurse practitioners. They are trained in esthetics, and they are also trained in skin wellness. Make sure your technicians understand evidence-based science and don’t be afraid to ask why they are recommending a certain product or procedure over another.” Using products you think might work based on advertising or reading a label in a drug store can cause severe damage to your skin, explains Dr. Tanquilut. “Allergic reactions can be very mild, or they can cause extreme swelling, redness, and skin damage. You do not want to take that chance, especially when it comes to your skin. When you want a thorough skin rejuvenation treatment, call a professional.” 

5) Skin Rejuvenation Makes You Feel Great!

Aging may be inevitable but making peace with the signs of aging doesn’t have to be. Many skin rejuvenation treatments can help you refresh your appearance and reverse the signs of visible aging. And who doesn’t want to look better, youthful, and fabulous? You’ll have more confidence and move through your world with assurance and poise that will transcend into every aspect of your life. “When you look good, you feel good,” says Angela. “When you look younger, you tend to be more open-minded about your abilities, opening up new opportunities for you, both personal and professional.” 

Angela recommends establishing a relationship with a professional esthetician that you can trust with your skincare needs. “Your technician will help you understand what types of treatments are best for your skin, how frequently you’ll need to have treatments, and how to care for your skin between treatments. Regular skin rejuvenation will change your skin and reduce the effects of aging by restoring your skin’s youthful elasticity and brightness.
