A Facial for Every Skin Concern

Posted on January 23, 2018

Every once in a while, your at-home skin care regimen might feel like it’s not cutting it. Getting into DWH Med Spa for a facial is always a good idea to help get your skin on track. We offer a variety of facials to address an assortment of skin issues that may be bothering you.

Soothe Inflamed Skin

If you have rosacea or just general redness and irritation, the rosacea facial might be the soothing treat your skin needs.  The rosacea facial aims to calm irritations and decrease redness accompanying rosacea. All of the products used are alcohol and fragrance-free and are super gentle to not irate sensitive skin. This facial will help protect the skin and strengthen delicate capillaries from breaking.

Tackle Texture

For uneven texture and dry patches, we offer microdermabrasion and a cleanse and dermaplane procedure. Microdermabrasion gently exfoliates away dead skin cells while also, stimulating collagen production leaving you with smooth skin. With a cleanse and dermaplane facial, you can refine your complexion by combining exfoliation and removing peach fuzz; leaving the skin glowing and prepped for makeup application.

Balance Acne Prone Skin

If you’re experiencing an acne flare-up, an acne facial is a must. We help get your skin in check by doing a deep cleanse, extractions, and LED blue light therapy. This facial combines anti-inflammatory and cleansing methods to help balance acne-prone skin. This is perfect to get rid of any extra congestion before starting a new at-home regimen.

Universally Helpful

A nice treat for almost any skin type, the DWH Signature Facial involves a thorough cleanse, exfoliation, extractions and facial massage. After this process, moisturizing masks are applied to improve moisture absorption. Other treatments can be combined for a custom facial.

The Complete Solution 

If your skin needs some major TLC, the Revitalize Facial is the most comprehensive facial offered at DWH Med Spa. This facial is 90 minutes of deep cleansing, extractions, exfoliation, facial massage paired with either microcurrent or a facial peel. This facial will leave you truly relaxed and your skin looking radiant.

Think Ahead with Laser Hair Removal

Posted on December 29, 2017

You might be feeling a little hairy this winter, but don’t worry! At DWH Spa, we offer laser hair removal procedures for many areas of the body where unwanted hair might accumulate, including legs, underarms, and bikini areas. Dream ahead and let us help you get ready for swimsuits and warm weather!

What is it?

Laser hair removal is noninvasive and optimal for those with dark and well-pigmented hair. Highly-concentrated laser light is applied to the hair follicle through the pigment and halts unwanted future growth. Hair can sometimes be obstinate, so this may require three to four treatments to achieve optimal results. Get started now so you can hit the beach this summer feeling confident!

What can I expect?

There may be some mild discomfort during the procedure, with some swelling and irritation afterwards, but applying ice packs and anti-inflammatory creams can help ease symptoms. Be sure not to shave or pluck hairs prior to the procedure.

We also offer strip and hot waxing services to help you get smooth and hair-free, when and where you need it. Leave the razor at home and get the most fun out of your summer!

Get Holiday Ready at the Med Spa!

Posted on December 18, 2017

If you have a full schedule of holiday parties this year, you may be looking for a way to prep in minimal time. DWH Spa offers a variety of services that can help you prepare for the swankiest of soirees.

Injectables

Whether you’re looking to soften lines or give your face a more youthful volume, DWH Spa has an injectable for you. Injectables involve minimal downtime and in most cases offer quick results. Botox® injections can address brow furrowing, horizontal lines across the forehead. Botox can take up to two weeks to take the full effect. So if you’re thinking about doing this for the holidays, be sure to make your appointment about two weeks prior.

Another great way to rejuvenate your look just in time for party season is to try some injectables to add volume to your facial profile. Juvederm® Voluma can be used to volumize the cheek area for a more youthful structure. Another great injectable to try this holiday season is Juvederm® Volbella for a soft fullness to help you pull off any holiday bold lip.

Makeup Services

Do you have a big party where you really want to impress? Getting your makeup professionally done can take a portion of the burden off your plate when preparing for an event. The professional makeup artists at DWH can help you achieve the holiday glam look you desire, from full lashes to a striking flawless complexion.

Microdermabrasion

To aid in flawless makeup application, a microderm is a must! The microdermabrasion treatment exfoliates away dead skin cells and then brightens the skin. The removal of dead or flaky skin cells helps to prepare the skin for a flawless makeup application and a glowing complexion. Microdermabrasion’s involve little to no downtime and can be done as close as the day before your event.

If you have a big event to prepare for, call DWH Spa to schedule an appointment with one of our aesthetic professionals for your next big holiday party!

Now Introducing: DWH Skin Care Products

Posted on November 15, 2017

For gorgeous, healthy skin, treatment must extend past the med spa. That is why we offer a variety of products to help you keep your skin healthy while at home. In addition to  the great existing product lines we currently carry, we have recently added a few essential products of our own!

Brighten Up Pads

Many of us are self conscience of unwanted pigmentation, but are also hesitant to use harsh products on the skin to achieve results. Brighten Up Pads are ideal because they can be customized by your skin care professional. When used alone, the pads contain kojic acids, antioxidants, and botanical ingredients to brighten your complexion. Depending on your needs, your aesthetician can add variable strengths of hydroquinone to boost your results to diminish pigment. Brighten Up Polish

Although we love gentle acids for exfoliation, sometimes you just can’t replace the feel of a physical exfoliator. This exfoliator brightens and evens out the texture of the skin without irritation. The scrub formula is rich in antioxidants and glycolic acid to help soothe the skin. Most skin types can benefit from a gentle scrub once or twice per week.  This works great for your face and body.

Body Refine Cream

The skin from the neck down needs love too! Many of us are not as diligent with taking care of the skin on our body and as a result have dry flaky skin. The Body Refine cream is a multi-tasking body moisturizer that hydrates, nurtures collagen production and elasticity for firmer skin. By using a multitasking body lotion you will quickly notice smoother, firmer, softer skin.

Zen Skin Mist

The Zen Skin Mist is one of those products that you’ll want to have everywhere: your vanity, handbag and in the office. The Zen Skin Mist soothes and moisturizes the skinwhenever you need it. Whether you are setting your makeup first thing in the morning, or if you need a quick “pick me up” later in the afternoon, this all natural mist is gentle enough to be used multiple times per day

Stop by DWH Health & Wellness MedSpa today to try some of our new products. They are guaranteed to become some of your skincare favorites!

Why You Should Listen To Your Body

How do I know when I need a massage?

You know that achy pain you keep getting on your neck? Or how sometimes you have to almost literally have to peel your shoulders down from your neck when you wake up in the morning? A lot of times many of us don’t really pay attention to these signs that our body is giving us. It is crying for help, so listen to your body. A couple of signs that might help you determine if you need a massage would be:

  • You’ve been getting headaches
  • You don’t have full range of motion
  • You don’t get enough sleep
  • You are stressed out
  • You have pain in your neck (or back, or shoulder, or hip)
  • You haven’t had one for months or years

There’s many factors that contributes to your body being in pain. Pain is your body’s way of communicating to you that something is wrong. The busier we get, the more we tend to ignore our body’s signals. You don’t want to ignore your pain or your injury could get worse. So schedule a massage as soon as you can and make it a habit. The most common recommendation for a massage would be once a month. What are you waiting for? Thank your body for all it has done for you and all you have put it through.

SculpSure: What to Expect During Treatment

Posted on September 20, 2017

Has summer relaxation and vacations caused you to put on a little extra weight around your midsection?  If so, don’t worry! SculpSure® in Richmond, VA can help you to shed that extra belly bulge without surgery and downtime. Read on to learn more about SculpSure® and what to expect during the treatment.

What is SculpSure?

SculpSure® is a noninvasive body sculpting treatment that uses laser energy to melt away stubborn fat cells on the abdomen, thighs, flanks and the uncomfortable bra roll. Because this treatment requires no surgery there is little to no downtime needed! Patients can drive back to work or continue their everyday errands right away.

Each treatment plan is customized to fit your needs during a complimentary, private consultation. However, it is important to understand that SculpSure® is not meant as a weight loss solution.

What is Treatment Like?

During your Sculpsure® treatment, applicators will be applied to the treatment areas, and targeted laser energy will be used to melt away fat. The applicators come with a special cooling system to maintain safe and comfortable skin surface temperatures. Each treatment area takes about 25 minutes and most patients address more than one treatment area during their session.

Fat cells will be eliminated from the body naturally and will only improve with time.

In the days following SculpSure® you may experience mild bloating and swelling in the stomach area, but massaging the treatment area can help to break up the fat cells and aid in elimination. If you are ready to say goodbye to that extra belly bulge, contact DWH Med Spa today! We would be happy to schedule your SculpSure® consultation.
