As much as it may seem like we are in the heart of Winter here in Denver, CO, the truly exciting part is that by the Chinese Calendar, we are just about to tip the tide and move into Spring in a matter of weeks. Granted, we won't see the true "light" of Spring for another few months, but don't be fooled, Spring is on it's way. At YAO we are always looking at how we can improve our health with the support of the seasons. And Spring is a fabulous time to exfoliate!
With the severe dryness and deep cold, our skin has been caking on layers of protection, just like the layer of cornflakes depicted in the image above.
[Please note: We use this image of Cornflakes, Raisins and Grapes to assist our patients in understanding the layers of the skin, why we do what we do in our Beauty appointments and how a variety of products can assist depending on what is happening in each individual's unique situation.]
And though this protection would probably be fabulous if we spent most of our time outside, it does not have that "loveliness" when we look in the mirror and see exacerbated wrinkles and creases. Layers of accumulated skin can also increase acneic tendencies and there can be a build up of black heads and other bacteria on the skin.
Exfoliating services at YAO
We are so excited to launch this New Year and the New YOU at YAO. As we look to 2016 with all our new year's resolutions before us, we can consider shedding our inhibitions, bad habits and literally our SKIN! Spring and Fall are by far the best times of year to exfoliate and YAO Beauty has a variety of services to assist you in achieving your skin care goals. Any of these services can be worked into the YAO Extended Facial. Please simply request that we work on this service when you are booking the appointment. This will allow our esthetician to prepare for the services appropriately.
The Dermafile is the perfect alternative to microdermabrasion. The crushed diamond file lightly polishes and resurfaces the skin allowing fresh new cells to be exposed, thus improving the appearance of the skin. It also brings more oxygen to the skin therefore improving the color.
Dermaplaning is a noninvasive exfoliating procedure that removes the top, outermost layer of skin as well as the vellus (peach fuzz) hair on the face. This process leaves the skin supple and smooth and the results are immediately noticeable. Dermaplaning is excellent compliment to other services as it helps products absorb more quickly and deeply into the skin.

YES! YAO will very soon be launching our Facial Rejuvenation package. Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is a set of facial acupuncture points designed to encourage the body's natural production of collagen and elastin. These new cells quickly tighten the skin reducing fine wrinkles and decreasing puffiness around, especially around the eyes, nose and mouth. It can also assist in reducing dark circles under the eyes. Those who have received Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture say that it really leaves them feeling "younger and fresher". We agree! It's awesome! And though you will be able to try an intro trial session where you will receive both a sample of the Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture with Michelle Luiz, plus an intro facial with Cathy Castor, the whole package will include a series of 9 sessions scheduled either weekly or twice a week. In the 9 sessions you will receive 3 treatments with a deep exfoliating facial with our Cathy as well as the Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture with Michelle. The other 6 sessions will simply be the Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture with Michelle. We know you are going to LOVE this! We are thrilled to share this with you. Stay tuned!
Booking for Exfoliating Services
To book for one of the above deep exfoliating services, all you have to do is schedule a YAO Extended Facial Session and specify when booking that you would like either: Dermaplaning, Dermafiling, Peppermint Rosemary Facial or The Anti Aging Facial. All of these services cost the same $140 unless you have purchased a series package or a membership. If you have either of these, you can apply one of your YAO Extended Facials and try one of these services. If you are unsure as to which would be best for you, no worries. You can discuss this with us when you arrive.
Other YAO Beauty Services
In addition to the exfoliating services mentioned above, YAO has an extensive Beauty Service Menu. If you are new to YAO, take advantage of our Beauty Introductory Specials or consider the YAO Beauty Membership Program for the best value (for more information, visit our website at yaoclinic.com).
