Facials and Chemical Peels
When you have exposed your skin, over time, to harsh environmental elements, including the sun, it becomes dull and loses its radiance. Both facials and chemical peels are designed to restore the skin, when used correctly. In both instances, the skin treatments restore the youthfulness of the skin, once again giving it vitality.
To understand how chemical peels and facials restore youthfulness, you need to understand more about the process. When you schedule a facial in a salon, the esthetician uses a magnified lamp to determine the types of products that are suited for your skin. A large number of facial products use steam to release impurities in the skin or in the pores, including blackheads or whiteheads. Afterwards, the technician exfoliates the skin. This is done to remove the dead skin and reveal a healthier, more youthful complexion.
After exfoliation, the esthetician may massage the face to relax the facial muscles. A facial mask is often applied that meets with your specific skin care needs. The treatment is completed by applying a toner, serums, moisturizer, and skin care UV protection.
Now that you understand how a facial works, you can see how a chemical peel compares. A chemical peel removes the outer layer of skin. This is done by using a preparation of chemicals that are applied to the facial area to remove or exfoliate the old or damaged surface skin. By having the peel done at our med spa, our esthetician can demine the best formula for you. Three levels of chemical peels are usually featured in the form of light, medium, or deep peels. Like a facial, after exfoliation, this procedure removes dead cells, stimulating new cell growth so the skin appears brighter and smoother.
