Embracing Age with LovelySkin: National Skin Care Month
We sat down with Candise Bogle, licensed esthetician, at LovleySkin Spa in Omaha for National Skin Care Month to discuss tips and tricks to keep aging skin looking radiant. LovelySkin was founded by award-winning board-certified dermatologist and cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Joel Schlessinger. LovelySkin is a one-stop shop for skin care needs. They offer everything from professional-grade skin care products to relaxing salon treatments.
Candise explained that the skin's metabolism is very similar to the body's metabolism, it slows as we age. Exfoliation occurs less with age, skin may need help eliminating old cells and promoting new cell growth. This process improves the look of fine lines, wrinkles and dark spots while softening a rough texture. Candise suggests exfoliating once or twice daily depending on your skin's sensitivity level. Look for retinol, gycolic acid, and amino fruit acids for the best active ingredients.

It is important to treat your skin transformation as you would your body. Meaning, would you expect instant results from your body after hitting the treadmill once or attending a single yoga class? Probably not. Similarly, a topical treatment must be given 2-4 months to see long term results.
For more instant results, Candise recommended LovelySkin Spa treatments:
- Micodermabrasion is a manual exfoliation process that boosts collagen production to help with dark spots and age spots. Clients will be happy to know that this "sanding down" of the skin causes relatively little discomfort. Candise said most people compare it to the scratchiness of a cat's tongue.
- Pelleve is a skin tightening treatment that uses hot stones to rebuild collagen. Results will start to show the day of the first treatment. 3 treatments for 3 months is recommended for the best results.
- Botox produces immediate results by freezing frown lines around the eyes and forehead with injections that will last 3-6 months.
- Fillers produce immediate results by filling fine lines and creating volume with injections. Fillers can be used in the lips, mouth, or cheek depressions.
