Aesthetics 101: What You Need to Know

Breaking Down the Most Popular Treatments and Services for Skin

When you hear the word “aesthetics” several things probably come to mind. Health. Outer beauty. Improved physical appearance. In the health & beauty industry, aesthetics has become a catch-all term to describe boosting one’s physical appearance by smoothing away wrinkles and improving the look and feel of skin. “So, how exactly is this accomplished?” you might be asking yourself. There are actually several answers to this question, but we’re going to break this down to the main (and most popular) aesthetic treatments available on the market today.


This is NOT your typical facial. HydraFacial is an elevated skincare treatment for your face that uses cutting-edge technology to help you achieve clear, smooth, and flawless skin. The patented HydraFacial will exfoliate, extract impurities, and hydrate your skin, leaving it radiant with a youthful glow.

The HydraFacial process is safe, effective, and breaks down into three simple steps.

  1. HydraFacial will gently exfoliate your skin to uncover the new and healthy layer underneath.
  2. Next, HydraFacial will remove any buildup of debris or impurities from your pores, leaving the skin healthy and hydrated.
  3. Finally, HydraFacial will add rich peptides and antioxidants to your skin, which will heal the surface and grant it overall protection from the elements.

HydraFacial is one of our most popular aesthetic services here at Regain Functional Medicine because it’s quick, effective, and addresses all skin types in any condition. Whatever the current health of your skin – HydraFacial can improve upon it in under 30 minutes.


When talking about aesthetic products and treatments, what we’re really doing is answering the question of how to defy age and look younger. Environ achieves exactly that by not only hydrating the skin, but also by promoting healthy cell production which erases signs of aging. For the uninitiated who are just now seeing the Environ name for the first time, it is a highly-touted skincare line that’s being used by the industry’s top dermatologist, skin care therapists, and Hollywood celebrities and models. In fact, Environ is being hailed as one of the best skin care products available in certain health & beauty circles.

Environ products are noted for their following benefits:

  • Clinically tested for safety and effectiveness
  • Hypoallergenic
  • Non-fragranced
  • Will not block pores
  • Free of colorants

Regain Functional Medicine offers a wide array of aesthetic services that utilize Environ’s line of products, which break down into three types of treatment.

  • Essential Treatments: These treatments take 60 – 90 minutes and are intended to make a lasting improvement in your skin’s appearance by softening the appearance of fine lines, sun-damage, sagging skin, or skin that is irritated or unevenly pigmented. Depending on your skin’s specific needs, you’ll choose from one of four Essential Treatments that utilize Environ products as a targeted solution to achieve glowing, youthful skin.
  • Focus-On Treatments: Taking only 15 – 30 minutes, this is our quickest, most-expedient form of treatment. Utilizing Environ’s synergistic ingredient technology, Focus-On Treatments are highly effective in treating frown lines, emotion lines, scarring, and pigmented marks that may flaw your skin. As the name implies, Focus-On is a targeted treatment aimed towards specific problem areas and comes in four variations: frown treatment, eye treatment, texture treatment, and even tone treatment.
  • Environ Cool Peel Treatments: These treatments take 30 – 60 minutes and use a non-invasive, intelligent peeling system to remove damaged outer layers to reveal youthful and healthy layers of skin. Environ Cool Peel Treatments are ideal for those looking to reduce or eliminate signs of aging, fine lines, sun damage, uneven skin complexion, or dry skin. It has also been proven to be effective in helping skin that’s prone to breakouts, congested, or excessively dry. The Environ Cool Peel Treatment is available in six different varieties, depending on what your specific skin care needs are.
