Aesthetic Skin Care

Aesthetic skin care is the treatment of the face, hair and body with cosmetic procedures like anti wrinkle injections, dermal fillers or pigmentation correction. It can also include treatments like hair removal, body sculpting and fat reduction.

Estheticians are state-licensed professionals who perform cosmetic services and educate clients on skincare routines. They do not perform invasive procedures, which should be left to medical practitioners who specialize in the area.


Botox is one of the most well-known treatments used in aesthetic skin care. It’s used to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, which can help restore a more youthful appearance. It is considered safe for long-term use when injected by an experienced medical professional. However, anyone considering this treatment should discuss it carefully with a dermatologist to determine if it is right for them.

In its purest form, Botox is a protein made from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. It was originally developed as a muscle relaxant for eye spasms and has been FDA approved to treat frown lines, forehead lines, and crow’s feet. It is also used for other medical indications, including neck spasms, overactive bladder, and chronic migraines.

While it’s true that this product can be dangerous in its pure form, when it is diluted and administered properly by trained professionals like the staff at Vibrant Skin Bar, it is perfectly safe for cosmetic use. Injections should be done by an experienced practitioner who can assess a patient’s individual needs and recommend the correct dosage of neurotoxin to produce optimal results.


Injectable fillers, most commonly hyaluronic acid, reduce fine lines and creases. They also increase soft-tissue volume to enhance facial contours and aesthetic skin care provide a refreshed appearance. These products can also help with scar depressions and lip enhancement, and replace lost soft tissue due to years of muscle movement (squinting, chewing, smiling).

Injection of the dermal filler is a relatively easy office-based procedure. Most filler products contain lidocaine, a topical anesthetic to minimize discomfort. We carefully select the most appropriate filler product for your unique skin type and condition, and our physicians are skilled at injecting these materials.

When injected incorrectly, fillers can create a «stuck-on» look that is not natural or youthful. However, many of the most popular fillers are not permanent and will gradually disappear from your face. They can be easily and safely reabsorbed by the body or replaced with a more suitable filler.


Microdermabrasion is a cosmetic treatment that offers physical exfoliation of the skin. The tool used in this procedure – whether it be crystals, diamond dust or another type of gritty material – loosens the top layer aesthetic skin care shop of dead cells, which is then suctioned away with the help of a vacuum. This procedure is considered non-invasive and, unlike dermabrasion, does not require numbing medicine. This is a good option for those with sensitive skin, or those who have a hard time tolerating chemical peels.

This treatment can improve the look of mild scars, sun damage and uneven skin tone. It can also reduce fine lines and wrinkles as the production of collagen is stimulated. Most people need a series of treatments before they can see results, which are generally long-lasting. Immediately following a session, the skin may turn pink and can be somewhat swollen for about 24 hours. Patients can apply a light ointment to relieve any irritation. The ointment should be a non-greasy product that contains ceramides, cholesterol or hyaluronic acid to help the skin retain moisture.

Laser Therapy

Lasers are narrow, focused beams of light that have been in use for decades for cutting and welding, scanning barcodes, carrying Internet signals, and now, treating various medical conditions and cosmetic concerns. They’re especially useful because they’re highly precise, and can be calibrated to reach different layers of skin, addressing problems that other treatments cannot.

A wide variety of laser devices are used for skin resurfacing, rejuvenation, and treatment of vascular lesions and pigment irregularities like brown spots. Some lasers are more intense, and therefore require longer downtime, while others have minimal downtime.

In some cases, there may be a temporary redness or bruising that fades within a week after laser treatment. Some people are sensitive to laser treatments, and should choose a practitioner who is familiar with treating many skin tones.

It’s important to avoid sun exposure or tanning beds after a laser treatment, as the skin will be more susceptible to hyperpigmentation and photoaging. Also, you should apply a daily broad-spectrum (protects against both ultraviolet B and ultraviolet A rays) sunscreen to help reduce the risk of repigmentation.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels remove damaged outer layers of skin, speeding up cell turnover and fighting hyperpigmentation. They also encourage collagen growth and help heal scars and other imperfections.

Superficial and medium peels require no anesthesia; however, mild burning, itching and stinging are sometimes experienced during the procedure. Patients may be able to control discomfort with cold compresses or oral medications.

Light peels use alpha hydroxy acids, such as glycolic acid, to treat fine lines, wrinkles and acne scars. They can also reduce surface-level pigmentation, melasma and sun damage.

Medium-depth peels use beta hydroxy acid, such as salicylic acid, to penetrate the upper layers of the skin and cause damage that triggers new skin growth and improves the appearance of enlarged pores. The procedure also can reduce the appearance of brown spots, melasma and fine lines around the mouth and eyes.
