At WellSkin Medspa in Dallas, TX, we’re in the business of helping patients achieve their most beautiful skin possible. And now, you can improve your skin after just one treatment session with WiQo, an innovative anti-aging topical treatment that can transform your complexion. After just one treatment, you’ll see a visible improvement in your skin and will not only love your complexion but will have a renewed sense of confidence.
What Is WiQo?
WiQo is an innovative anti-aging skin-perfecting professional treatment designed to improve the complexion. But, don’t get it confused with a chemical peel because once you undergo the treatment process, your skin will not peel or frost in any way. The ingredients in the WiQo treatment are designed to help uncover a beautiful complexion while stimulating collagen production in the deeper layers of the skin.
If It Isn’t a Peel, What Is It?
Indeed, this treatment is not a chemical peel, which may make you wonder what it is. WiQo is a professional skin care treatment in a liquid topical form that stimulates collagen production in the deeper layers of the skin. When applied to the skin’s surface, it is absorbed into the dermis. You won’t have to worry about post-treatment peeling or downtime often accompanied by most chemical peels, regardless of their strength.
What Does It Treat?
This liquid application treatment can be applied to different areas of the body, but the most common treatment area is the face. Patients schedule this treatment to enhance the appearance of the skin on their faces, necks, décolleté, or different areas of the body. Additionally, patients schedule this treatment to help improve the appearance of stretch marks and depressed scars, including acne scars and other similar recent scars.
How Do I Prepare for a Treatment?
In order to achieve the best results, we will ask you to take some necessary steps to prepare your skin for the treatment process. We typically ask patients to stop using certain topical products that contain anti-aging ingredients, including AHA’s and retinoic acid. If your skin tolerates retinol, you may be able to continue use in combination with this treatment.
One of our experts will evaluate your skin, learn more about your skin care product regimen, and give you further instructions on what to avoid and what you can continue using. We also ask patients to avoid excess sun exposure in the days leading up to their treatment to avoid sunburn. If you must be in the sun, wear sunscreen, protective clothing, a hat, and sunglasses to protect your skin.
What Happens During the Treatment Process?
Once you arrive for your treatment, we will situate you in one of our treatment rooms. Then, your esthetician will gently cleanse your skin. We may apply a small sample of the treatment on a certain area of the skin to test it before applying it to your planned treatment area. The treatment process involves the massage-like application of the WiQo liquid solution to the skin.
You may feel a warm sensation, which is normal and simply indicates that the treatment is doing its job. Your esthetician will apply the necessary number of product layers to your skin to address your specific concern. Then, once the solution has remained on your skin for a specific period of time, your technician will wash it off and apply a post-treatment cream to help comfort your skin and enhance your treatment results.
Is It Painful?
Patients don’t describe this treatment as painful or uncomfortable. It will create a warming sensation in the treatment area, which is quite tolerable. If you feel uncomfortable at any point, you can let your esthetician know so that she can take the necessary measures to help maintain your comfort throughout the rest of the treatment.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Once you undergo this treatment, expect immediate results. However, each treatment builds upon the one before it, so you will continue to see improved results as you schedule more treatments. We typically recommend a treatment plan that includes anywhere from four to six treatments.
Treatments are typically scheduled with one week between each to achieve the best results. However, we will design the right treatment plan for you based on your ultimate skincare and goals, concerns, and needs.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect?
Patients who undergo this treatment can expect more youthful skin immediately following the treatment process. The results will continue to develop in the weeks following your treatment, especially when you schedule the recommended number of treatments as prescribed by your esthetician. Patients who schedule this treatment experience fuller, tighter, and brighter skin. Expect your skin to exude radiance and youth after your treatment.
Is There Any Post-Treatment Downtime?
Since this treatment will not cause peeling or frosting, you won’t have to plan around downtime. However, we will provide you with some specific instructions on caring for your skin in the days following your treatment. You may be directed to apply some specific topical products to your skin to soothe the area and enhance your results. Your esthetician will provide you with all the necessary instructions on how to care for your skin.
If at any point you have questions, you can simply call our office to get answers. We ask patients to avoid saunas and other forms of heat and steam for the first few days post-treatment. You should also make sure that you are wearing high-quality sunscreen when you are exposed to the sun in any way. Other than some post-care instructions and directives, you can resume your normal daily activities once your treatment is over.
If you want to know more, our experts are ready to help you learn about this treatment and determine if it’s right for you. Then, we’ll design a custom-tailored treatment plan for you that will not only help you achieve optimal skin health but will restore youth and a healthy glow to your skin so you can feel confident both with and without makeup. Your best skin yet is waiting to be uncovered.
