CHEMICAL PEEL – During this treatment, a solution of trichloroacetic acid (TCA) is applied by your esthetician to remove the outer dead layer of skin cells. This is a comfortable way to rapidly exfoliate the skin, leaving the face brighter, cleaner, and refreshed. Chemical peels are commonly used to treat sun damage, dark spots, wrinkles, clogged pores, uneven skin tone, and texture irregularities. Redness, if any, goes away within a few hours. Depending on the strength of the peel solution used, your skin may be dry and flaky for 2-10 days. Various peel solutions are available (light strength, medium strength, and deep strength) and will be discussed prior to treatment.
MICRODERMABRASION -Microdermabrasion is a very gentle treatment that is great for all skin types and skin conditions. Your skin specialist will glide a wand across your skin that finely sands away the upper dead layers of keratin. This reveals an overall fresher looking complexion. There is no downtime at all with this procedure. Skin will instantly look smoother and feel softer to the touch. Makeup application is OK post-microdermabrasion.
MICRODERMABRASION + CHEMICAL PEEL – This treatment begins with a microdermabrasion to remove excess dead skin cells of the face. Then a chemical peeling agent is applied to break up stubborn layers of dead skin, forcing the skin cells to rapidly exfoliate. Skin will instantly look smoother and feel softer to the touch. Great for clients who wish to correct sun damage, wrinkles, dark spots, clogged pores, blemishes, scarring. Redness, if any, goes away within a few hours. Your initial treatment will cause little to no dryness. With multiple visits, the intensity of the peeling solution is increased, which can cause dryness for up to 1 week. Avoid makeup application for 24 hours.
LASER RESURFACING – Sublative laser resurfacing is a unique procedure which uses radiofrequency to deliver an effective but controlled heating to the lower layers of skin, reducing wrinkles, acne scars, large pores, and stubborn hyperpigmentation. Similar to “Fraxel”, it uses radiofreqeuency energy, as opposed to visible light, making it safe for all skin colors. Each pulse delivers the radiofrequency energy via a grid of matrix spots, inducing a skin injury which is maximized in these tiny, targeted areas. Fibroblasts are activated within these
“zones” that signal collagen to regenerate and remodel, yielding improved skin tone and texture overall. Usually a series of three to five treatments are needed for optimal results. Treatments are comfortable and do not require the use of topical numbing cream.
