RosaceaIs your face trying to tell you something? Rosacea is a common skin condition that affects approximately 16 million Americans. This month is Rosacea Awareness month and we want to help shed the light on this growing skin concern.
Rosacea is a condition caused by chronic inflammation and an abnormal blood vessel response to stimuli. It usually starts after the age of 30 and resembles a slight blush in the cheeks or unexplained sunburn. The exact causes of Rosacea are unknown, but it is likely to be inherited and triggered by extreme weather conditions, stress and diet. Unfortunately, this happens again and again and over time gets worse, possibly even creating painful bumps and pimples. If dismissed in the early stages, it will continue to get worse and become a permanent condition.

This month at Blue Seas Med Spa we are offering $75 off our Mandelic chemical peel package. Mandelic peels calm and soothe skin redness. Reduce pore size. Improves skin texture and tone. Minimizes mild hyperpigmented skin. Receive a complimentary Avene Redness Solution Kit with package (valued at $119).
Have you tried it yet? If you haven't, what's the hold up?
The most common things I hear at Blue Seas Med Spa is the fear of looking different. That is understandable. I have also heard people say they are afraid of the needles and the thought of injecting, onabotulinumtoxinA into their face. All of that makes sense and so I am going to help you understand what we do here at Blue Seas Med Spa.
Botox is the first and only FDA-approved treatment to temporarily smooth moderate to severe forehead lines, crow's feet lines, and frown lines in adults. Repeated muscle contractions from frowning, squinting, or raising eyebrows cause skin to furrow and fold, gradually resulting in formation of facial lines. Botox works below the surface and temporarily reduces the underlining muscle activity to help them look better.
Let's talk about what you can expect at your appointment.
You will sit down and have a consultation with one of our Nurse Practitioners. Together you will come up with the optimal treatment plan that works for you. After your consultation, it is time for treatment! Treatment is quick and most report feeling nothing, while others experience a slight pinch. You will start to see results in the following days, with full results at 2 weeks.

One of our most popular services at Blue Seas Med Spa is PRP Micro-Needling. You may have heard this called, Collage Induction Therapy (CIT) or the "Vampire Facial" and have seen celebrities posting their before and after photos on social media once having it done. Is it right for you?
Let's break it down.
Micro-Needling is an innovation in aesthetics for the treatment of the appearance of fine lines, acne scars and the skin's texture, tone and color. The skin's repair process results in improvement of the appearance of softer wrinkles. We do this by creating micro-injuries to the skin in order to aid in the production of collagen and elastin. The skin's repair process results in a thicker epidermis with a softer appearance of wrinkles. Another benefit, is the once the micro-injuries are created on the skin, this creates channels for serums, gels and creams to effectively enter into the deeper layers of the skin.
Some of the incredible benefits of this procedure is reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improved skin tone and texture. Once you start treatment, you will start to see your skin looking softer and younger with fewer signs of aging. We have a lot of people who ask what can be expected at your first appointment. After a consultation with one of our providers, you will be able to relax while topical anesthetic cream is applied for your comfort. We will then take a sterile applicator containing 12 tiny micro-points is attached to the Eclipse MicroPen®. Your skincare professional will apply a thin layer of saline solution to your skin and select the appropriate treatment setting based on your unique needs. Next, in a single motion, the pen will be gently pressed against the skin while simultaneously gliding until the entire treatment area has been covered.
From start to finish, you can expect your treatment to last one hour. Immediately after the treatment you will notice a bright redness to the skin.
The total healing time depends on the Eclipse MicroPen® setting used and the number of overlapping passes your skincare professional performs. On average, patients are red up to 2 to 4 days. Many patients heal completely in as little as 24 hours. We highly recommend a series of 6 treatments, spaced 1 month apart to achieve optimal results.
This month at Blue Seas Med Spa, receive a package of 6 PRP Micro-Needling treatments for $2,800.00 (value $3,600.00) and receive FULL SIZE take home skin care, which includes SkinMedica TNS Essential Serum, SkinMedica Essential Defense SPF 35, Epionce Medical Barrier Cream and Avene Spring Water Mist.
