About

The skin is a living organ. Approximately every 30 days, the cells of your skin move from the lower layers of the epidermis to the surface. When your cells migrate to the surface layer, they die and fall off.

Receiving a medical facial treatment from a trained specialist stimulates your skin’s natural exfoliation process, helping the skin project a more healthy and youthful appearance. The benefits of skin care include clean and clear pores, a clear complexion, a balanced skin tone and smoother skin.

Skin Care by Alyce is a hidden gem in the Pennsylvania Piedmont region. Alyce believes in taking a medical approach to her clients’ facial treatments because her own medical background has shown her that lustrous skin is healthy skin. Let Alyce and her trained, capable staff show you how to take your skin care to the next level. Consider a consultation at Skin Care by Alyce.

Oxygenation & Detoxifying Treatment

The oxygen treatment can be used on any skin type. The germicidal action makes it extremely beneficial for acne.[1] Lightening and vasoconstricting capabilities provide instant results. The procedure is quick, easy and pleasant. The end result is clear and luminous skin with a feeling of firmness.

Benefits of Oxygenation for the Skin

  • Germicidal action to the skin
  • A skin-lightening agent that improves scars and lightens sun damage
  • Improves overall skin function
  • Decreases erythema (redness)
  • Vasoconstricting (broken capillaries are less visible)
  • Stimulates fibroblasts (help produce collagen and elastin)

Ideal Skin Types for Oxygenation

  • Acne
  • Rosacea
  • Sun-damaged skin
  • Telangiectasia

The oxygen treatment can be repeated as often as once a week. With the enzyme treatment included, it can be repeated once every third week.

Do Oxygen Skin Care Treatments Really Work?

Oxygenation facial treatments have recently become a favorite for many celebrities because they reduce the tiny imperfections that are often magnified for those high-definition close-ups. It is a safe and simple procedure in which a machine sprays atomized moisturizers onto the skin using a stream of pressurized oxygen.

Ultrasound

Safe and effective sound waves target the middle layer of the dermis, where collagen and elastin are produced.[3] The sound waves stimulate cell metabolism to produce collagen and elastin and create healthier, thicker and firmer skin. This treatment also clears the complexion, reduces pore size, diminishes rosacea and increases penetration of treatment products for maximized results

Can Ultrasound Be Used on the Face?

Ultrasound treatments represent the latest in medical-grade skin care. During the treatment, High-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) is focused on the face to encourage the production of collagen, which results in firmer skin. It is a quick and painless procedure gaining in popularity as a non-surgical alternative to a facelift.   

Vitamin C Exfoliating Treatment

This nourishing and refreshing treatment gently resurfaces the skin with alpha hydroxy acids to give you a brighter, more hydrated appearance. After your skin is cleansed and exfoliated, an enriched vitamin C serum is applied and penetrated with an ALS technique. A vitamin C mask is applied on top of the serum for an added dose of antioxidants and other wholesome ingredients.

Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that fights free radicals and rejuvenates your skin’s cells.[4]

How Much Does a Vitamin C Exfoliating Treatment Cost?

You are sure to be ready for a special day or night after this delightful treatment. The treatment length is 50 minutes. The price is $100

FAQ

Does oxygen help your skin?

Oxygen treatments add radiance to your skin. It hydrates dry and aging skin at the face, encouraging a more even skin tone. The oxygen helps infuse the serums into the skin. In younger patients, the treatment will reduce fine lines and alleviate acne breakouts.

Which is better: Retinol or hyaluronic acid?

Both facial treatments are very beneficial for the skin, but the difference lies in what you are attempting to achieve. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is more effective at the skin’s upper layers. Retinol, on the other hand, is a deep treatment for the subdermal layers. Hyaluronic acid treatments eliminate free radicals in the skin. Free radicals are known to cause damage as the skin ages. HA also increases cell turnover while it stimulates collagen, granting your face a younger, brighter appearance. Additionally, HA reduces sebum production and suppresses melanin formation. People struggling with acne may prefer the effects of retinol. Although retinol treatments may be too harsh for people with severely dry skin. Retinol has much more potent and widespread effects on the skin. But you don’t have to choose! Retinol and hyaluronic acid interact well with one another. HA’s moisturizing effects can be the perfect preparation for an involved retinol treatment.   

What does ultrasound do for the skin?

Ultrasound therapy is a high-tech alternative to surgical procedures like a facelift. It is a non-invasive treatment to improve the appearance of moderately loose or sagging skin. During the treatment, the skin is showered in a light bath of sonic energy. The sound waves gently stimulate the body’s creation of new collagen. Collagen makes up your skin’s natural support system, but this support protein becomes depleted as we get older. Collagen depletion leads to unsightly sagging and wrinkles. Ultrasound therapy restores the skin’s youthful firmness and elasticity.

Can you apply vitamin C directly to the skin?

Vitamin C is a beneficial nutrient whether it is ingested or applied directly to the skin. Indeed, topical application of vitamin C could be the key to maintaining a smooth, even and glowing complexion.
