Summer Skin Therapy: Restorative Age-Reversers at the Best NYC Spa

July 25th, 2014

As the sun etches fine lines and wrinkles in unprotected skin during the sizzling heat of summer, the best NYC day spas prevent damage with restorative age-reversers skin therapy.   In the most brutal of seasons it is essential to maintain a dedicated face care regime that includes sufficient SPF sunscreen and monthly professional facials to prevent cumulative degradation from UV exposure.  Considering this fact, the best NYC Spas like Joanna Vargas Skincare Sanctuary customize facials and suggest routines to meet their individual clients’ needs.

Spa Skin Care

Many clients choose LED treatments as a leading way to soothe inflamed skin conditions after a day at the beach.  For sensitive skin types minimal time in the sun can result in painful burn with resultant blistering or age spots.   Trusted dermatologists have researched and proven light emitting diode’s effectiveness in calming UV trauma brought about from too much sun with an inadequate barrier.  These totally safe infrared (or blue) lights offer rapid restoration therapy for complete dermal repair to reverse the signs of aging as it eliminates inflammation.


LED therapy is part of an overall professional facial package or, exclusively available a la carte at Joanna Vargas, as a reclining full body bed experience to remedy sunburn and diminish the visible flaws that come with aged dermis.   It is known to expedite the growth of collagen and elastin proteins that make the face look more buoyant and youthful.

Home Face Care

An exfoliating mask is the best way to slough off old skin tissue impacted by sun exposure.   The most respected spas recommend exfoliating twice weekly to bring fresh vibrant skin to the surface for a healthy radiant appearance.  Without this critical skincare step in your daily routine the complexion begins to look worn and lackluster.   Essential vitamins, minerals and moisture nourish and hydrate the skin to ease fine lines and wrinkles from the visage and décolletage with regular use.

In addition to the potent nutrient content, this purifying mask contains native Kaolin clay that acts as a sponge and naturally absorbs impurities from deep within the pores.   All the toxins that can slow cell turnover and blood circulation are organically removed to detoxify and strengthen.  Lactic acid aids in loosening dead skin cells.  The added bonus is the naturally derived galactoarabinan (GA) that inhibits moisture loss and reduces irritation to ensure glowing vitality.

In tandem, your professional facials and home care routine can prevent further UV damage and help retain resilient younger skin.   However, here are a few tips to keep in mind as the summer approaches its end:  keep applying sunscreen daily!  Try to avoid direct sun as much as possible.  If you’re on the sunny side of the street in the heat of day, switch to the shady side.   And lastly, schedule your professional facials in advance because open LED appointments book up faster than most…
