At All About Skin, we analyze your skin in depth and design a treatment that’s different every single time because your skin is different every time you come in. You should receive a skin treatment about every 4-6 weeks or the period of time during which the outer layer of the skin called the epidermis is completely renewed.

The results you’re going to see with an All About Skin treatment are unlike anything you will experience in Palm Springs or the Coachella Valley because we exfoliate the skin, we double cleanse the skin, we do extractions, customized your massage and masque techniques. We combine different products so you ‘ll see your skin glowing, more luminous, hydrated, and “looking good and feeling great”.

    BOTOX-LIKE, FILLER-LIKE AND LIFTING LIKE

    Muscles in the face are contracted when they receive neurotransmitter that travels within a vesicle. The SNAP receptor complex is essential for this neurotransmitter release at the synapsis. Argireline is a mimic of the SNAP receptor. When applied, the complex is destabilized and the vesicle cannot release neurotransmitters efficiently and therefore muscle contraction is attenuated, preventing the formation of lines and wrinkles. Dictyopteris Membranacea is a brown seaweed from Brittany, England and its oil will feed adipocytes to increase volumes. For this, the oil stimulates 3 essential proteins. Finally, 2 components will work in synergy: 3D Matrix of Andean galactomannans, which sequentially releases a marine skin tightening. When the mask is applied, the result is less wrinkled, rejuvenated, and firmer skin.

Tech Treatments

Our technical treatments are designed to target specific concerns such as the visible signs of aging (wrinkles, crow’s feet and frown lines), scars, acne and hyper pigmentation. Microdermabrasion will reduce the appearance of acne, enlarged pores, scars, pigmentation, sun damaged skin and stretch marks through deep exfoliation.


Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion Treatments are often referred to as the “lunchtime facial" because they can be completed in as little as thirty minutes. Because the microdermabrasion procedure is non-surgical and virtually painless, it is a safe and highly effective way to restore a clear, youthful glow to the skin. Microdermabrasion sloughs off the dead and dull surface layers of the skin, stimulating an increase in collagen production and rejuvenation. Many patients see dramatic improvements in the tone, texture, and color of treated areas after just one treatment.


Micordermabrasion has best results when done in a series of 3-6 treatments.
We offer a 10% off series of 3
 and 20% off series of 6 when paid upfront

Microdermabrasion can also IMPROVE:

Oily or Dull Skin

If your skin is oily - Don’t cleanse too often. You may be tempted to suds up several times a day to remove dirt, oil and grease. But over-washing can actually be harmful, because it disrupts skin’s protective lipid layer. As a result, the skin becomes more vulnerable to environmental damage and inflammation, and precious moisture escapes. Instead, use a cleanser designed for your skin type, and wash twice a day – tops. Having a Microdermabrasion treatment will leave your skin smooth and we will recommend the right products to use to after we improve your skin so that you keep your face looking beautiful.

Enlarged Pores

Pores are essential to your skin's health by providing oil to keep skin soft and hydrated. However, you don't necessarily want to be reminded of their existence every time you look in the mirror. Pores are more prominent when they are dilated, infected, or clogged with oil, making them appear larger than they really are. While it isn't possible to permanently "shrink" large pores, there are a number of ways to make them less noticeable. Cause of Large Pores: There are two main factors that contribute to large pores: genetics and age. People who have skin that is naturally thick and oily tend to have larger pores. As people get older, too, sun damage and decreased skin elasticity can cause pores to dilate. The skin thickens, causing tiny cells to collect around the edge of the pores and make them look larger. Blackheads are also a big contributor to large pores. When the pore becomes clogged by dirt and bacteria, oil within the pore begins to accumulate, causing the pore's diameter to expand.

Fine Lines

Wrinkles develop naturally on the skin over time. Eventually, EVERYONE gets wrinkles. Wrinkles form as the skin ages and its underlying structure begins to break down. Environmental factors such as sun exposure and personal habits such as smoking can hasten this process and contribute to the formation of wrinkles. Habitual facial expressions can also cause wrinkles, as well as deeper lines such as smile and frown lines.

Prevention of Wrinkles -The best way to prevent premature wrinkles is by maintaining good skin health. This includes practicing good nutrition, keeping the skin clean and moisturized, and avoiding things that can damage the skin, such as sun exposure and smoking. Good nutrition is essential to keeping skin healthy. A well-balanced diet that includes plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables rich in antioxidants is essential for good skin health. Hygiene and hydration are also keys to maintaining healthy, youthful skin. Keeping the skin clean and well moisturized will help keep it supple and prevent wrinkles. Dirty skin is more vulnerable to infection and irritation. Over-use of cosmetics and similar products can damage the skin and aggravate existing skin conditions such as rashes, infections, and acne. There are many behavior patterns associated with premature wrinkles. The most avoidable of these is smoking. Smoking can negatively affect skin health, leading to damage and infection. When a person smokes, the blood vessels constrict, which restricts blood flow to the extremities as well as the skin. Because the blood carries oxygen and other nutrients to the skin, this process deprives the skin of needed chemical compounds. Environmental pollutants such as automobile emissions have a similar effect. Wrinkles can also be the result if exposure to sun, wind, and other environmental conditions. Regular moisturization, daily sunscreen application, and appropriate clothing choices are the best ways to address these risks.

Mild Acne Scars

Almost every adolescent experiences some type of acne problem. Without proper treatment and skin care, some acne can scar the skin. In order to reduce the occurrence of acne breakouts and prevent scarring, it is important to understand the causes of acne and know what the most effective methods of acne treatment are.

Causes of Acne - An acne problem occurs when overactive sebaceous glands produce too much oil and plug follicles in the skin. There is some confusion, however, about what causes this to happen more with some people and not as much with others. Effective acne treatment and prevention of acne scar formation depends upon a clear understanding of the real causes of acne and how they can be effectively addressed.

Genetics: The primary causes of acne are biological. During adolescence, the skin cells lining the inside of hair follicles begin to shed heavily, and the skin’s oil production increases. As a result, the hair follicles become plugged, and acne eruptions appear on the skin. The degree to which acne develops is determined primarily by genetics. A teenager whose parents suffered from moderate or severe acne will most likely have a similar acne problem. A cosmetic dermatologist can provide effective acne treatment to alleviate even the most extensive acne problem and use advanced acne scar removal procedures to help restore a clear, healthy complexion.

Medication: Some types of medication can also cause acne, but this occurrence is rare in comparison to genetically linked acne. Drugs that have been shown to cause acne include anabolic steroids and corticosteroids, some anticonvulsants, lithium, isoniazid and rifampin, immunosuppressants, and drugs containing iodine. If you are taking any of these medications and suspect that the medication may be the cause of your acne problem, do NOT stop taking it. Instead, speak with your doctor to see if you can change medications or to determine an appropriate acne treatment.

Oily Skin: Contrary to common belief, acne is not caused by oily skin. However, because oily skin and acne are both caused by the excess production of oil by sebaceous glands during adolescence, oily skin is often mistaken as the cause of acne. Acne is caused primarily by clogged follicles under the surface of the skin, not by oil on the skin. For controlling acne, good skin care habits that include daily washing are important to maintain skin health and clear excess oil from the skin. However, excessive washing and harsh products can irritate skin and possibly cause an acne scar problem.

The Foods You Eat: Many people believe that certain foods cause or worsen an acne problem, but diet has very little influence on acne. Eating a balanced and healthy diet can improve overall health. Avoiding foods that appear to aggravate your skin problems may help lessen the severity of an acne breakout, but changing what you eat is not an effective acne treatment.

Stress: There is some evidence to suggest that stress may aggravate an acne problem, but it is not a primary cause. In many cases, a particularly bad acne flare-up is the source of stress, rather than a result of it. Stress management techniques can help improve overall physical and mental health, but they are not an effective acne treatment.

Hormonal Changes: In many people, hormonal changes trigger acne. The hormonal shifts that take place during puberty are partially responsible for initiating an adolescent's acne problem. Some women have breakouts that occur or worsen at certain points in the menstrual cycle or during pregnancy. However, the primary factor that determines whether acne will appear is genetics.


Oxygen Skin Treatment

Our Oxygen Treatment System is uniquely designed to cleanse, nourish, and revitalize every skin cell through its revolutionary use of the pure oxygen molecule. This patented system is among the first to offer both corrective and preventative skin care, especially when it comes to reducing the effects of aging caused by the sun, free radical damage, and exposure to pollutants.

Micro Mist Facial - Like all living things, our skin needs oxygen to stay healthy and regenerate itself. Young skin is well supplied with a network of micro-capillaries which supply blood, oxygen and nutrients to the skin, keeping the skin hydrated, smooth, and soft. As we age, the capillaries in our skin degenerate, and the amount of oxygen and other nutrients supplied to our skin cells slows down.

Simultaneously infuse hyaluronic acid, vitamins, and anti-oxidants to the deeper layers of the skin via cooling, calming topical hyperbaric oxygen resulting in immediate and age defying results. Re-hydrated, plumped up skin in less than an hour has garnered some of Hollywood's most famous & beautiful devotees. Recommended in a series and perfect before a big event. Each Oxygen Infusion Facial begins with facial skin analysis, cleansing, and light exfoliation to prep the skin for treatment. Results are instant and continue to improve in the following days.

Waxing Treatments

all-about-skin-palm-springs-page_waxing-treatments

Waxing leaves the skin smooth and the hair grows back slower, softer and lighter than when shaved. Almost any area of the body can be waxed, including eyebrows, face, pubic area, (called bikini or intimate waxing), legs, arms, back, abdomen, hands and feet. There are many types of waxing suitable for removing unwanted hair.

Intimate waxing is nothing like shaving and once you've waxed, you'll never go back. Think smooth, soft skin, instead of rough stubble down there – lush! You will be really smooth and sexy for at least the first 2 weeks. Remember that waxing removes all the hair, pulling it out at the follicle, so everything that grows back, is new and therefore soft and for quite a while it feels really smooth. Hair usually gives up and stops growing after about 4-6 years of continuous waxing.


  • Waxing For Guys

    Gents, waxing is great for larger areas like those pesky shoulders and back. It lasts 4-6 weeks for most men. It hurts a bit, but not nearly as much as you think, plus it’s sharp but short! Different parts of your body have different levels of sensitivity too, like the small of your back or the tops of your pecs nearest the collarbones tend to be more sensitive. Everyone experiences it differently, because every man has a different resistance to what’s happening. Eventually, after 4 to 6 years of constant waxing, the hair will usually stop growing.

    Guys, whether it’s your shaft, sack, crack, or butt you want to wax, check out our extensive menu and choose the combination that suits you.

    Hair Removal with Nufree at All About Skin Spa

    Developed over 30 years ago to remove hair from a patient before plastic surgery nothing is more effective & safe than Nufree. Nufree is the ” gold standard” in hair removal and is safe for over 98% of the body. Because Nufree is not a wax it never sticks to the skin, so clients do not experience the pain, redness or swelling associated with wax treatments. Just silky-smooth skin.

    Nufree actually uproots the entire bulb and hair shaft and does not break the hair off the way depilatories and waxes do. Nufree is the only one antimicrobial, non-wax hair removal system in the world. Patented antibacterial and antimicrobial Finipil is applied after the hair is removed with Nufree. Finipil protects against ingrown hairs and bacteria. When combined with Nufree and used daily, it extends the period between hair removal treatments and helps to stagnate the hair regrowth.

    Any part of the body can be treated with Nufree, including eyebrows, face, bikini area, legs, arms, back, abdomen and feet; and it was clinically developed for sensitive skin.

    Bikini hair removal or pubic depilation is the safe removal of body hair in and around the pubic area. Originally meant to prevent the pubic hair from being visible around the edges of a bikini or swimsuit, it now often includes areas covered by bikinis. As general rule of thumb hair needs to be a quarter-inch long if it’s fine and half-inch long if it’s coarse.

    Nufree is applied to the hair and then covered with an epilating strip. After hair is removed Finipil is applied to cool, soothe and protect the skin. Ideally Nufree bikini hair removal should be done every two and a half to three weeks all year round. Hair will be noticeably thinner and will grow more slowly leading to less frequent treatments. After about 18 treatments clients return to the salon only once or twice a year. Nufree is 100% Botanical; No Chemicals, No Sugar, No Wax.

    To avoid cross contamination whilst carrying out our hair removal services we use a new spatula each time we make contact with your skin and We never double dip.

  • Non-Waxing For Guys

    It used to be that hair removal was strictly a female thing. Unless you were a bodybuilder, cyclist, swimmer, or male exotic dancer, chances are your body hair remained untouched.

    Not so anymore. Experts report that more and more men are opting for the same grooming rights as women - including smooth body skin. Men get more hairy as they get older so body hair removal sometimes becomes more appealing to guys as they get in to their mid thirties and beyond, however men of all ages from twenty onwards regularly use male hair removal services.

    "Most men don't necessarily want everything removed, but increasingly they mostly want their back and chest done. At the same time, various media reports suggest that many men are now opting for that longtime staple of female grooming – The Brazilian. But unlike women, for whom hair removal is second nature by junior high school, men often find themselves at a loss for how to deal with excess body hair.

    Gents, at All About Skin, here's the lowdown on the most common hair removal options available today for men by men!

    Hair Removal or Waxing

    Gone are the sticky, gooey, honey-based waxes of the past. In their place are soy waxes, a creamy lotion that's applied to skin, but adheres only to the hair. Strips of specially prepared cloth are layered over the cream. When the mixture dries, in just a few minutes, the cloths are removed (think of pulling off a bandage) and poof! The hair is gone. Waxing is great for larger areas like those pesky shoulders and back. It lasts 4-6 weeks for most men. It hurts a bit, but not nearly as much as you think, plus it’s sharp but short! Different parts of your body have different levels of sensitivity too, like the small of your back or the tops of your pecs nearest the collarbones tend to be more sensitive. Everyone experiences it differently, because every man has a different resistance to what’s happening. Eventually, after 4 to 6 years of constant waxing, the hair will usually stop growing.
