Our Nurse Practitioner and laser expert Ashley Rushing along with EVOLV nurses Kaleigh and Addison and Dr. Barone, traveled up to Detroit for the weekend to attend the Sciton Rockstar Experience of Beautiful Skin conference on new laser technology and treatment options for light-based therapies and skin rejuvenation.

Favorite Summertime Skin Tip from EVOLV:
Masque Up and Don’t Forget to Brush Cleanse Your Skin!
The warmer weather months require some adjustment to our skincare regimens to achieve optimal results. Nonirritating but effective cleansing is particularly important due to the higher humidity, sweating, workouts, and sun exposure with sunscreen use. This can create a skin environment of more inflammation, irritation, and breakouts. Utilizing a dedicated skin brush with your skin cleanser has been proven to remove up to 85% more debris, old skin cells, residue, and ‘gunk’ than other options and in addition has the added benefit of stimulating blood flow which reduces age-related changes in the skin. Summer is also the ideal time to consider adding an exfoliating mask to your regimen. The EVOLV medical-grade masks use organic sugar to gently exfoliate while combining natural plant-based enzymes to loosen and aid in the removal of excess oil, old skin cells, and other unwanted debris. Regular use of a proper skin mask can also result in improving absorption of your skin care products and improve your skin rejuvenation and anti-aging results. Remember that beautiful and youthful skin requires renewal, replacement, and protection!
Lots going on here at EVOLV and many exciting new options in aesthetics to share with our patients so…. stay tuned!
