5 Popular Treatments for Recent Graduates


5 Popular Treatments for Recent Graduates

The world after school can seem like a scary place. Whether you are transitioning into more education or joining the workforce, a lot of how much you enjoy these next steps will depend on how confident you are moving through them.

For most of us, school is a tough place to be confident. And while it is important to know there is more to life than just the way we look, there is nothing wrong with wanting to look your best as you move forward to new phases of life. 

Our complexions are often the main source of our angst. Acne, acne scarring, unwanted hair, dull skin and other imperfections can make us feel like our flaws are the only thing people see. 

Luckily, these five treatments are some of the best options on the market for addressing facial skin woes — plus, they are also particularly good choices for Gen Z and recent graduates!  

1. Microdermabrasion

There are countless pollutants in the air that affect the natural glow of our skin, not to mention the buildup of dead cells and the sun constantly battering down on the top layer of our skin. When you consider all of these factors, it’s not surprising that we end up with dull skin even in our youth.

Microdermabrasion is a procedure that reveals a healthier layer of skin through gentle exfoliation. It doesn’t rely on chemicals or invasive approaches, which means it is incredibly safe, reliable and effective. 

Microdermabrasion is performed in a variety of ways with an even wider variety of tools. At Senza Aesthetic Medicine, we use a diamond-tipped device that also has integrated vacuum technology. This combination ensures that the problematic layer of material is completely removed from the face.

Can Be Used to Treat:

  • Enlarged pores
  • Sunspots
  • Age spots
  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Acne
  • Acne scarring
  • Dull complexion

2. Excel V 

Excel V is a facial treatment that aims to improve discoloration of the skin. By emitting a more diverse array of light, this treatment can penetrate deeper into the dermis than many laser skin rejuvenations. 

While you probably don’t have too many age spots or sun spots to worry about straight out of school, you can use this technology to remove birthmarks, unwanted freckles and even noticeable blood vessels and veins. 

For the new grad, taking care of some acne scarring or other concerns before making the next big move can help dramatically with feelings of self-consciousness and confidence. 

Can Be Used to Treat:

  • Freckles
  • Birthmarks
  • Varicose veins
  • Broken blood vessels
  • Rosacea
  • Unwanted hair
  • Age spots
  • Sun damage

3. Laser Hair Removal

Hair maintenance is a huge time consumer, and it doesn’t get better as you get older. (Spoiler alert: it usually gets worse.)

So if you are already finding yourself annoyed with the shaving, waxing or plucking process, then you might want to start considering laser hair removal. The sooner you have it done, the more return you get on your investment — especially when the most common comment about hair removal you’ll hear is, “I wish I had done it sooner!”

We use the LightSheer Duet for noninvasive hair removal at our Redlands office, which has provided our clients with excellent results. This device releases a controlled amount of concentrated light at the target area, destroying the follicle itself. It also uses suction technology to provide better access to the required areas.

Can Be Used to Treat:

  • Back
  • Chest
  • Legs
  • Thighs
  • Underarms
  • Arms
  • Bikini lines

4. Hydrafacial

Exfoliation is a valuable step to take if you are looking to remove contaminants in your skin. But what if you wanted to add something as well? Answering that question is why Hydrafacial was created.  

It works in three easy steps: cleanse and peel, extract and hydrate, fuse and protect. 

Once the top layer of your skin has been purified, Hydrafacial goes the extra step to add beneficial ingredients back into your complexion to help bolster that newly minted look of yours. 

The substances that are put back are based entirely on your needs. We believe that your skin is unique, and your treatment should be too. 

Can Be Used to Treat:

  • Dull skin
  • Brown spots
  • Oily skin
  • Congested pores
  • Enlarged pores
  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Textural issues

5. Clinical Facial

If you are a fan of having facials and are looking to improve on some of your facial qualities, then our clinical facials are a promising treatment to consider. They are more extensive than what you would get at a spa, but the benefits to your complexion will be night and day. 

We often include the previous procedures as part of this process, but it will be developed entirely to treat your specific needs. This is a convenient option if you want to tackle multiple concerns at once. 

Can Be Used to Treat:

  • Virtually every aesthetic facial concern
