FAQ’s

Summertime is here, and I bet you’re all wondering what the perfect first time peel is! It can seem intimidating, but isn’t it also exciting? This can be your chance to gain that summer glow you’ve been yearning for. Learn more about Acqua Blu Medical Spa’s spa services in Pittsburgh, PA.

What is the Perfect First Time Peel?

At Acqua Blu Medical Spa, we recommend the PCA Sensi Peel for virtually anyone who is looking for a peel who has never gotten one before.

What is the PCA Sensi Peel?

This peel is a low-dose, minimally invasive treatment, which provides amazing benefits for your skin.

What is the PCA Sensi Peel Made of?

It is made of a unique blend of active acids, including:

  • TCA (Trichloroacetic Acid)
  • Lactic Acid
  • Azelaic Acid
  • Kojic Acid
  • Arbutin

All of these work synergistically to exfoliate, hydrate, and even out your skintone.

Is this Peel Safe?

Yes! The PCA Sensi Peel is safe for all skin types and conditions.

What Conditions Does the PCA Sensi Peel Treat?

The formulation includes many skin brighteners, treating conditions, such as:

  • Aging
  • Acne
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Rosacea

If the PCA Sensi Peel seems like a good option for you, know that depending on your skin’s needs, your treatment can also be advanced, if necessary, to a more aggressive approach.

As the aging process occurs, our skin cell’s natural exfoliation process slows down, requiring some assistance. By receiving regular peels every two to six weeks, you will ultimately help your skin be the best that it can be.

Consider scheduling a complimentary consultation with Acqua Blu Medical Spa to learn more about what we can do to help you. Please call: 724-933-1800 for more details or to learn about our other services, like our laser hair removal in Pittsburgh, PA.

How To Prevent Bruising from Cosmetic Injections with AccuVein

Purpling and black and blue coloring is not a shade anyone wants decorating their skin. When you go in for a cosmetic procedure and leave looking like you lost a boxing match (maybe not that bad), you certainly can’t be too thrilled. Bruising is a common occurrence for any cosmetic procedure that involves injections, but there has to be a way to avoid this. Well, Acqua Blu Medical Spa’s spa services in Pittsburgh, PA also includes a new and innovative solution called: AccuVein.

Why does bruising occur?

What most patients don’t realize is that their bruising happens because even the most skilled and advanced doctor cannot avoid the unseeable. That’s correct, your blood vessels, concealed by your skin, could not previously be located and avoided with a needle. Instead, it was nearly inevitable that blood vessels were nipped during an injection procedure.

Along with that, the face is also extremely susceptible to bruising because it is very vascular – like a high-traffic zone for veins. In rarer instances, a hematoma can also form due to blood pooling outside of a blood vessel. All of this is now, thankfully avoidable.

How does AccuVein Help?

AccuVein allows us to be able to see the veins under your skin before inserting the needle. Upon seeing where the blood vessels are, the potential for bruising drastically drops. In fact, Dr. Heil has seen a very high reduction percentage (about 80-90%) for bruising during injection procedures.

What is the difference?

AccuVein is like having x-ray vision versus operating blind, guessing where veins are, and trying to map out your specific vein anatomy. Everyone has a different makeup, and veins can be a hit or miss (literally). AccuVein gives doctors the precision they need to make sure bruising is few and far between.

The Solution of Vein Illumination with AccuVein

By using an infrared light, AccuVein will illuminate both large and small veins on any part of the body, including the face. The hemoglobin in the blood absorbs the infrared light, appearing distinctly different from the rest of the skin. This vasculature insight is essential in performing an injection procedure that avoids bruising.

At Acqua Blu Medical Spa, we not only have a bruising solution with AccuVein, but our doctor, Dr. Heil, uses microcannulas to place most fillers. Wherein, the round tip of the cannula will push veins out of the way rather than puncture them. With this combination, a no-bruise procedure is not impossible!

Also offering laser hair removal in Pittsburgh, PA, our many services are innovative and state-of-the-art. Consider making an appointment for your consultation today!

How to Non-Surgically Sculpt a Slimmer Waist this Spring

Everyone wants to be proud of their appearance and give off fine looks! And now that the weather is warming up, clothes are thinning out and showing off the shape of your New Year’s Resolution. However, despite all your efforts to be the beautiful you’ve always wanted, sometimes stubborn flab can get in the way and refuse to slim down no matter what you do. Healthy diet and sweat-laced exercise or not, that fat casing the edges of your curves needs to go. When it is around your waistline, it can not only accumulate the quickest, but it can also be the toughest to tone. Don’t ever let it be a roadblock in the way of your perfect shape.

 

Never give it up!

Halo™ by Sciton®: The First Hybrid Fractional Laser in the World!

Maybe you haven’t heard, but this two-for-one fractional laser has hit the markets and our skin center in Pittsburgh, PA. If you’re looking for solutions to improve your features, this laser can give you all of them and then some. The hybrid fractional laser brings together both fractional ablative and nonablative skin resurfacing for the perfect combination. Avoid straight ablative lasers, and start seeing the positive and less invasive effects that this fractional laser can provide.

 

What are Fractional Lasers?

 

Fractional lasers are lasers that treat the area of focus in grids rather than at full blast. This way, only a portion of the skin is damaged, allowing for a faster healing process. The body will heal the damaged area, including the skin around it, which offers similar results to non-fractional lasers. It’s win-win!

 

Halo™ by Sciton® is a fractional laser that offers you the best of both worlds. It gives you the results of an ablative fractional laser, but with the non-ablative downtime. How it does this is by using two different wavelengths: 1470nm of non-ablative coagulation and 2940 nm Er. YAG wavelength for ablation.

 

Ablative Lasers

 

Ablative lasers are used to treat:

 

  • Sagging Skin
  • Extreme Sun Damage
  • Textured Moles
  • Acne Scarring
  • Deep Wrinkles
  • Crepey Skin (chicken-like skin on your neck and eyelids)

 

Non-Ablative Lasers

 

Non-Ablative lasers are used to treat:

 

  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Surface Scarring
  • Fine Lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Sun Damage  

 

Downtime:

 

Because these lasers focus on the under layers of the skin, rather than the surface, they have a lot less downtime than ablative. Using a wide spectrum of radio frequencies and non-coherent light, it not only helps to improve the appearance and texture of your skin, but also promotes the growth of collagen.  

 

Halo™ by Sciton® takes all of these positive results and puts them into just one hybrid fractional laser to help benefit you and your skin and give you the look you deserve. At Acqua Blu Medical Spa, we want to provide solutions that are as non-invasive as possible. If you want to learn more about how this treatment can benefit you, please contact us today by calling:  724-933-1800. We also offer hair removal near Upper Saint Clair, PA that can leave your skin looking even smoother for spring.
