The MAS Magnifique Facial! Brighten and Tighten Your Skin for Spring!

MAS Magnifique Facial, Dr. Nicholas Vendemia, MAS, Manhattan Aesthetic Surgery, Plastic Surgeon New York City, Skincare New York City, Facials NYC

Rejuvenate and relax with MAS Magnifique, Manhattan Aesthetic Surgery’s signature facial and glycolic peel.

This refreshing facial is designed to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and will leave your skin glowing! Many of the products used for this facial are part of the Vivite skin care line, created by Allergan (the same company who makes Botox, Juvederm, and Natrelle breast implants). All Vivite products are made with their unique GLX technology, which is a combination of glycolic acid and natural antioxidants. Together, these ingredients promote collagen, hyaluronic acid, and epidermal growth of the skin (essential components for healthy, radiant, young skin).

What is MAS Magnifique?

This facial begins with a gentle cleanser to wash away any make up, oil, and other irritants that build up on the skin throughout the day.

MAS Magnifique Facial, Dr. Nicholas Vendemia, MAS, Manhattan Aesthetic Surgery, Plastic Surgeon New York City, Skincare New York City, Facials NYCThe skin is then exfoliated, with the help of a high-speed clinical cleansing brush.  The brush helps the cleanser penetrate the skin, while gently scrubbing away the top layers of dead skin.  This leaves the skin looking fresh and smooth.

Next, the skin is prepared with a glycolic prep, designed to help the skin absorb the products evenly. Vivite’s glycolic peel is then applied to diminish pore size by taking exfoliation to a whole new level! A soothing peppermint mask is used after the peel has been washed off to cool and calm your skin, and a redness-reducing moisterizer with sunscreen is applied to complete the facial.

How long does it take?

It usually takes 30-45 minutes, depending on your skin type.

Is there any down time?

No, this is a mild peel that does not require any down time. You can immediately re-apply your make-up and go on with your day looking noticeably more radiant and beautiful.

How much does it cost?

The MAS Magnifique Facial is priced $175, but if you mention this article when you schedule your consultation, you’ll get it for $99!

How do I schedule a MAS Magnifique Facial?

The last day of summer is always a bit bittersweet, but this is actually my favorite time of the year. It means Pumpkin Spice Lattes, leaf peeping, and lots of layered looks.

The change of seasons is also the perfect time to layer on the lotion for some serious skin care. After a summer in the sun and sand, even the best protected skin can end up a little parched and we know that’s only gonna get worse as the chill sets in for the next, gasp, six months or so!

Get Quick Color with Sublime Bronze Tinted Gel

Loreal Sublime Bronze One Day tinted gel, beautyEvery year, I somehow manage to forget how pasty, “winter”-colored legs look when you slip into my first summer sun dress. This was my dilemma as I was putting together an outfit for a baby shower on Saturday morning. The adorable hot pink shift I picked was begging for some glowing gams, but I didn’t have time to get a spray tan.

Enter Loreal’s new Sublime Bronze One Day tinted gel, ($8.09, walgreens.com)!

This instant tanning gel pumps into your palm as a rather intimidating deep bronze  glaze, but the color evens out quickly once you rub it into your skin. I loved that this one didn’t have that tell-tale tanner smell because it’s DHA free. I applied an even coat over my legs, arms and chest and waited for it to dry.

(about 10 minutes, just to be safe). Then, for good measure, I scrubbed my hands with soap and a loofah to avoid the home tan golden-palm look. Sure enough the product left a subtle, but very noticeable glow, successfully transforming me from “January” to “June”!

You can apply multiple layers of the gel for a deeper effect, but I didn’t find the coverage to be as good at evening skin tone out as I find with real sunless-tanning products. All in all, this is a great product to have on hand between other self-tanning treatments, especially if you’re as short on time as you are on tan!

The 4 “C’s” for Sunburn Relief

Did Memorial Day leave you looking like a lobster?

Sunburns happen when UV light kills the layer of new cells just below your skin’s surface. Your immune system responds by sending healing fluid to the burn (the swelling and redness you see), while your nerves release pain messages to your brain to let it know that your skin is “well done”.

The only cure for a sunburn is time, but here are 4 soothing “C’s” to put out the flame while you’re waiting.
