One of the questions I get asked all the time is “What can I do for my skin that is quick and easy and won’t make me look like a peeling lizard for the next week”. Literally in those exact words! Many of us are super busy with work and life and do not have the down time for skin care treatments.
Well, I am here to tell you that at Millefiori in historic downtown Melbourne we have MULTIPLE treatments including chemical peels that you don’t actually have peeling or ANY downtime. Yes, there are skincare treatments that you can do on your lunch break and go right back to work.
So here is the list of all of our services that fit into the no downtime category. Hopefully this list with curb your fears of peeling skin when you think about medical grade treatments. And as always with skin procedures there is a wealth of information and every skin type is so different we recommend coming into the office for a free personalized skincare consultation.
All of our spa facials include cleanser, toner, exfoliation, massage, extractions, custom mask and enzyme application finishing with sunscreen and moisturizer. Think of this a deep clean for the face. Not only is this treatment super relaxing with a hand and foot massage but it also keeps your skin healthy. Any of our specialty facials can also be done in the office without any downtime. A Specialty Spa Facial includes all the benefits of our Signature Facial but with extra attention to specific skin conditions. These treatments are expertly customized for your experience and skin type to help combat most common skin concerns. For example acne, rosacea, aging, clogged pores, and dark spots. You will leave the office feeling refreshed with flawless skin.
The old soft wax with the paper strips is a thing of the past. At Millefiori, we only use the most advanced techniques for skincare. Soft wax actually adheres to the skin and there is damage when it is removed that leave the skin red and irritated for days. With hard wax the wax only attaches to the hairs, so the skin is unaffected. You can slip into the office for a quick brow shaping and still make it to your lunch meeting without the dreaded red arches around your brows.
So what exactly is a chemical peel? Chemical peels use Alpha-Hydroxy Acids (AHA) to “peel” off the dead layers of skin on the surface and allow healthy skin to shine through. Chemical Peels are a great way to increase collagen and elastin while promoting skin health. They can be customized to your specific skin conditions such as acne or anti-aging. Ashley our medical aesthetician is like a crazy mad scientist in the treatment rooms whipping up solutions that are customized for your skin type. You will leave the office with a glow to the skin and NO downtime or peeling!
This chemical peel is 1 step up from the gel peel solution, but still offers results with no downtime. A micropeel is a chemical peel with an advanced solution that includes a 3 step process. The treatment start of with a procedure called Dermaplanning. This is a mechanical exfoliation of the skin. Then a customized chemical peel solution is applied just as in our gel peel procedure. Last the skin is followed by a CO2 blast that immediately constricts capillaries, reduces redness, and is antibacterial to the skin. Due to the dermaplaning and removal of dead skin prior to the peel solution, there is very little “peeling” or downtime after the treatment. Millefiori is the only place in Melbourne to offer this exceptional service.
When you are ready to step the game up and start treatments for overall rejuvenation to the face without the downtime. The process of micro needling with the rejuvapen is the answer. The Rejuvapen treatment begins with aromatherapy and a spa cleanse of the face. Then a prescription strength topical numbing cream is applied to the skin. Numbing cream is applied and the procedure is done as the pen sweeps across the skin and a Hyaluronic Acid gel is applied. There is no pain and the skin responds with a rosy pink complexion. Immediately after the skin feels a little tight and sensitive for the next 24 hrs. The next day your routine can resume as normal with NO DOWNTIME! This amazing treatment work to fight fine lines, wrinkles, texture, tone, elasticity, firmness, pore size and even hard to treat acne scars.
It’s not surgery, it’s not invasive, and there is no recovery time. Botox cosmetic can be used safely and effectively to treat wrinkles of the face. It is the only FDA product for use between the brows and crow’s feet. This little miracle drug in a bottle can be injected in as little as 30mins in the office, again with no downtime. You can go straight back to the office or date night dinner and no one will know! Results typically take 5-7 days to start showing.
