We caught up with the area's top skincare gurus to learn about the beauty treatments they recommend this spring.
"The Triangle Treatment of Youth: Voluma, Volbella, and Vollure. Voluma is used to restore the foundation of the face due to the loss of collagen; Vollure is to contour and add structure; and Volbella is the finishing touch for a natural youthful look." —Maria Schaffer, injectables nurse at Cross Medical Group. Treatment available in April.
"Winter is almost over! It is time to shed all that dry winter skin and spring into a smoother more vibrant complexion. The treatment you must have now to get your skin spring-ready combines a powerful duo that starts with Dermaplaning to gently 'shave' off dead skin cells and is followed by a 'Perfect 10' peel. This peel contains a synergistic combination of acids and antioxidants such as resorcinol, glycolic acid, green tea, salicylic and lactic acids to name a few that are designed to actually make you peel, revealing a beautiful, healthy, springtime glow!" —Joanna Pinkerton, clinical aesthetician at Cross Medical Group
"3000BC is the only spa in the Philadelphia area to provide the latest Syneron Candela elōs Plus IPL Advanced Laser technology. This treatment provides skin rejuvenation for a youthful, healthy look. What makes this treatment unique from the standard IPL? The combined bi-polar radio frequency and light energies of elōs technology precisely and safely target pigmented legions such as freckles, sun spots, and age spots.” —Jennifer Miller, director of marketing and sales at 3000BC WellMed Spa
"Europe is always ahead of the curve when it comes to the latest and greatest beauty treatments, and in an exciting turn of events, two of the most popular dermal-fillers in Europe just received US approval. Refyne and Defyne—dermal-fillers in the Restylane family—are unique because in addition to adding or enhancing facial volume (like a standard filler), Refyne and Defyne are designed to move in conjunction with your normal facial-movements. Whether you're smiling, frowning, or making any facial expression in your usual repertoire, these products will adapt to your motion and provide super natural looking, flattering results. Results last about a year, Defyne is for deeper areas, and Refyne is for areas that move the most. Patients are loving their results, and our injectors are so happy to have these new options at their disposal." —Naomi Fenlin, owner & founder of About Face Skincare
"Our number one spa facial will get your skin revved up and ready to go for spring. This radiance boosting treatment sloughs off the rough stuff with gentle exfoliation, resuscitates sleepy skin with our famous signature massage methods, and ends with a skin-perfecting customized mask—the ultimate pampering touch. I always listen to my clients’ concerns and tailor each treatment specifically for them. Even if they come in feeling frazzled, they always leave radiant, youthful-looking, refreshed, and relaxed!" —Jason Trego, aesthetician at Clarins Spa
