A chemical peel is a treatment used to improve the appearance of the skin. A chemical peel can be used on the face, neck, chest or hands. The chemical solution is applied to skin causing an exfoliating process which will eventually peel off. The fresh new skin is smoother, less wrinkled, and has more even tones. There are three basic types of chemical peels we offer: Superficial or lunchtime peel: This would be a mild acid used to penetrate only the outer layer of the skin for a gentle exfoliation. The treatment is used to improve the appearance of mild skin discolorations, texture, and fine lines and wrinkles. Medium depth peel: Glycolic acid is applied to penetrate the outer and middle layers of the skin. This treatment will help improve dark spots, fine lines and wrinkles, and rough textures such as acne scarring. Deep peel: A TCA peel is applied to the skin surface to deeply penetrate the middle layer of the skin to improve deep wrinkle lines, dark spots, and shallow scars.
Say goodbye to red, sun damaged, aging skin with the innovative Intense Pulsed Light treatment. So what is IPL? IPL or Photofacial is a treatment that uses intense pulses of light to penetrate deep into the skin to treat hyperpigmentation, redness and enhance collagen production. We’ve listed the top 5 reasons you should invest in IPL treatments. Trust us, you’ll thank us later!
1. It can be done anywhere
Most clients will start on the facial area but once they start to see the results, they tend to treat other problem areas such as neck, chest, shoulders and back. IPL treatments can be done anywhere on the body.
2. Keeps the skin clear from brown spots, small blood vessels and acne
If you have irregular pigmentation to your skin or small blood vessels that have become visible, IPL is a great solution to help clear the skin. If you suffer from acne or redness and inflammation caused by acne, IPL treatments can help. IPL treatments will reduce the redness and inflammation and kill the P bacteria that is causing acne.
3. Minimizes the signs of aging
Photofacial reduces wrinkles, sunspots and other indicators of aging. IPL will stimulate collagen growth by treating a deeper layer of skin, while improving texture, and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
4. IPL can be done in conjunction with other treatments
Since IPL treatments target the deeper layers of skin, they can be performed with other skin treatments such as microdermabrasion, facials or chemical peels.
5. It’s quick, easy and painless
IPL treatments can range anywhere from 15 minutes to hour long treatments, which can easily be added into your busy schedule. There is little down time associated with IPL and you can continue with your daily routines.
