Using unique natural ingredients for treatments, Plumped is one of the leading medical spas and providers of skincare in Charlotte NC. Their signature facials with super serums and advanced technologies are best for acne-prone, sun-stricken prone skin, and even dry skin during these colder winter months.
Plumped Founder Kristin Cabeda knew she wanted to service treatments that she believed in and would really work. Since there are so many skincare/injectable options these days, she knows what will give you the best results.
We got to speak with Kristin about some of her favorites in skincare as well as what makes Plumped stand out!
What makes Plumped unique?
“I didn’t want Plumped to be a place that offered tons of services, I just wanted to focus on treatments that I knew were amazing and that would make people feel more confident and beautiful. Myself and my entire team are very honest and set realistic expectations with our patients and don’t try to sell them on products or services that they don’t need. Educating patients is something that we take pride in – people should understand why we recommend the treatments or products that we do and how they will help address their concerns.”
What products and brands do you use on your own skin daily?
“I’m obsessed with different products from various lines that we carry and switch up my skincare routine depending on the time of year and the condition of my skin. My current line-up includes the Oxygenating Face Wash, Eventone Correcting Serum, Alto Advanced Defense and Repair Serum, Alpharet Overnight Cream, and Trio Rebalancing Moisturizer – all from Skin Better Science; DEJ Boosting Serum from Revision Skincare; the Hydratint from Alastin; and our very own Plumped Skin Brightening Pads and Lip Butter!”
What’s the one service you wish more people knew about?
“Microneedling – it’s a great anti-ageing treatment to boost collagen and elastin production with minimal downtime. It can help reduce fine lines and wrinkles, pore size, and can visibility plump the skin. Depending on the overall skin concern, we also offer different add-ons to microneedling to really boost and enhance results such as PRFM, chemical peels, exosomes, and Sculptra.”
How do you recommend keeping skin healthy and hydrated in the cooler winter months?
“Stay hydrated, switch up your skincare products to those that are more hydrating, get monthly facials, and stay away from the hot showers which can pull moisture and oil from the skin causing it to be even drier. Oh, and Skinvive! If you have skin, you need it! It’s a low molecular weight hyaluronic acid that acts as a skin booster and internal moisturizer. And the results are just WOW.”
Do you have any advice for people starting their skincare journey?
“Medical grade skincare – always! You also don’t need to be on a 20 step skincare regimen, a few products with key ingredients can do wonders for your skin.”
