WHY YOU SHOULD WEAR SPF

Spending time in the sun is essential for your health and wellbeing. However, long periods of sun exposure without adequate sun protection can have damaging effects on your skin. SPF or Sun Protection Factor protects skin against the harmful UV rays that can lead to pigmentation, premature aging, sunburn, and in extreme cases, cancer, and is an everyday essential for healthy, radiant skin.

WHY YOU
SHOULD WEAR SPF

Spending time in the sun is essential for your health and wellbeing. However, long periods of sun exposure without adequate sun protection can have damaging effects on your skin. SPF or Sun Protection Factor protects skin against harmful UV rays and is an everyday essential for a healthy, radiant complexion.

THE SPACE

The soothing, stress-free atmosphere of the space was created by architect Tobias Freytag. The aesthetic encapsulates the simple, yet luxurious spirit of the Dr. Barbara Sturm brand. Smooth concrete tables, delicate brass details, floating light fixtures and floor-to-ceiling windows are just some of the intricate design elements. A mirrored ceiling curves into the back wall of the space, adding a sense of infinity and serenity.

THE DISCOVERY TABLE

The Discovery Table allows customers to discover and try the full range of products while getting expert advice from an expert aesthetician. Dr. Sturm’s experienced team will give personal consultations and help answer skincare questions. Interactive screens and tablets offer customers further product and lifestyle information at their fingertips. In addition, customers can attend masterclasses and community events to better understand skincare, healthy ingredients and how to pursue the anti-inflammatory lifestyle.

THE TREATMENT ROOMS

The LA Boutique & Spa accommodates three treatment rooms, two express facial rooms and two infrared saunas where customers can enjoy treatments from Dr. Sturm’s wide-ranging spa menu, including the Super Anti-Aging Facial, Instant Glow Facial, Clarifying Facial, Brightening Facial, Darker Skin Tones Facial and Men’s Facial. Dr. Sturm will also be premiering advanced beauty and wellness technologies at the LA Boutique & Spa.

DR. STURM SAYS

“It’s been my dream to deliver the #SturmGlow to Los Angeles. LA is the most advanced beauty and wellness city in the world. It is a place where new ideas are born, tried and adopted, especially in beauty, health and wellness. LA has also become a spiritual second home to me: I met my husband and got married in Los Angeles and have so many wonderful friends here. I simply love to be here.”

HOW DO HEV UV AND INFRARED RAYS AFFECT THE SKIN

UV, HEV and IR rays all penetrate the skin, but some are more visible than others due to the wavelength they travel in. ​Their wavelength dictates how deep they can penetrate the skin and which layer of the skin they can damage.    

UVA / UVB

Common Sources: Sunlight and tanning beds

Skin cell penetration level: Skin cell penetration level: Top layer of the skin - Epidermis, and the middle layer of the skin - Dermis

Side effects of long term exposure: Premature aging, skin cancer and skin barrier damage, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation​, sun allergies such as prickly heat, DNA damage.

HEV

Common Sources: Sunlight and tanning beds

Skin cell penetration level: Middle layer of the skin - Dermis

Side effects of long term exposure: Premature skin aging​, stimulates the production of free radicals in the skin, breakdown of collagen and elastin​, hyperpigmentation​, sleep disruption

INFRARED

Common Sources: Electric heaters, remote controls, optical fiber and thermal imaging systems

Skin cell penetration level: Bottom layer of the skin - Hypodermis

Side effects of long term exposure: Hydration loss, degradation of collagen and elastin, hyperpigmentation
