There’s no denying it: skincare is all about the long game. While some medical treatments really can provide overnight results, the reality is that your skin turns over about every three weeks. That means that it’s probably going to take almost a month to see real results from most topical products. But sticking to a healthy skincare regimen and waiting for those results is 100% worth it. Want to know how to get better skin now and in the long term? Here’s what you can do.

Start dermaplaning: While the long-term benefits of dermaplaning—improved skin texture, reduction of lines and dark spots—are worth sticking around for, you’ll see some results from dermaplaning almost immediately. Our Dermaplaning Tool instantly removes peach fuzz and dead cells from the surface of skin, immediately giving the entire face a brighter look.
Hydrate with hyaluronic: Hyaluronic acid is a must for every skin type because it draws water into the skin. It makes skin plumper and more moisturized without adding any oil that might disrupt acne-prone complexions. As soon as you apply a hyaluronic serum like our HA Hydrating Serum, you’ll notice a difference in the softness and plumpness of your skin. Over time, it can help prevent and soften signs of aging.
Treat blemishes with high frequency: When you’re facing a big breakout, instant relief is the only thing on your mind. Most topical treatments take at least a day or two, but our High Frequency Device works right away. The magic lies in the device’s argon electrode, which generates oxygen within the pore when the device is applied to the skin. Since most acne-causing bacteria can’t live when exposed to oxygen, the device kills the infection within the pore from the inside. It can help reduce the size of your blemish and the associated redness in only an hour or two.

Regularly exfoliate with peels: You can spend a fortune on serums, but if you aren’t exfoliating your skin properly, you’re not going to see results as quickly. We prefer peels to scrubs because they actually dissolve dead cells more gently and evenly than scrubs can. You’ll notice softer and brighter skin immediately after using our TCA Multi-Acid Face Peel, but it will take 3-4 weeks of regular (up to twice weekly) use to notice a considerable reduction in dark spots, enlarged pores, and uneven skin texture.
Use growth factors: Growth factors are powerful natural ingredients that stimulate the skin’s natural regeneration process. These ingredients can help with everything from healing blemishes to reducing the look of wrinkles. Visible results with our EGF Activating Serum are only a few weeks away; you’ll notice an improvement in your total skin health, texture, and tone.

Microneedle 5-7 times a week: If you head to the dermatologist’s office to get an in-office microneedling treatment, you’ll likely experience noticeable results within 1-2 days after treatment. Because at-home tools like our Micro-Roller don’t penetrate as deeply into the skin (making them safe for you to use yourself), results are more gradual. You’ll likely notice a considerable reduction in fine lines and dark spots within two months, but really dramatic results will come after 6 months to a year of regularly treating your skin.

Apply sunscreen every day: Prevention is the most important step in any skincare regimen. Sunscreen may not give you any kind of instant result (beyond blocking sunburn), but it’s actually the most powerful daily step you can take to improve your skin in the long term. Unprotected sun exposure is one of the leading causes of skin aging; without sunscreen, you’re sentencing your skin to looking older, faster.
See an aesthetician every month: While it might seem like an indulgence, seeing an aesthetician regularly can help ensure the health of your skin in the long term. An aesthetician will be able to recommend treatments as your skin changes over time, ensuring that you’re taking the right steps and using the right products for your skin.
