Skin Care

Our skin is the largest organ in our body. It deserves the care that most of us unhesitatingly give to our health needs. Since it is our interface with our environments, it sustains daily injury, something that we commonly call aging. Regardless of your motivations – looking for a more youthful look or simply seeking optimal skin health – our aestheticians can provide professional assistance. It begins with a Visia Complexion Analysis that photographs your facial skin (with both flash and ultraviolet lights) and statistically compares you with age-comparable individuals to appraise your skin health and where problems areas might exist. From there a full discussion of intended goals will be discussed and a program specifically tailored to your individual needs will be offered.

These advanced peels promote the stimulation of collagen, elastin production and improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while also easing deeper expression lines -all resulting in an overall improvement in skin tone and texture.

Preparing for your Advanced Peel

Before treatment is done, your Aesthetician will provide you with pre- and post-treatment instructions. You will also have an at-home care regimen established prior to the treatment day.

What is the down time?

Many clients experience skin “peeling” or flaking after an Advanced Peel – some do not.  Should you experience flaking, severity varies, and it can commonly last 2-4 days.

What should I avoid before?

You will want to postpone use of any Retinol, Retin A or Benzoyl Peroxide products a minimum of 7 days before your treatment.

Also, you will want to avoid hair removal of any kind (shaving excluded) a minimum 2 weeks before treatment.

After your Advanced Peel

What should I expect to see/feel?

Should you peel, do not pick at the peeling or if you experience itching, do not scratch.  These actions could induce unwanted skin blemishing or scarring. 

What should I avoid after?

Try to avoid the sun as much as possible and use a good sunscreen of SPF 30 or better. Reapply every 3-4 hours.

Discuss when to resume your homecare regimen with your Aesthetician.
