Facials and Chemical Peels Q & A

How does photoaging affect my skin?

If your skin is starting to make you look older than your biological age, you’re probably noticing the effects of photoaging, or the premature aging of skin cells caused by regular sun exposure.

Up to 90% of the early signs of premature skin aging that you see on the most sun-exposed areas of your body are caused by ultraviolet light. Signs of sun damage include:

  • Fine lines around your eyes and mouth
  • Pigmented spots, including freckles and age spots
  • Noticeable loss of skin tone and texture
  • Thinning lips that appear taut and pale

Although the effects of photoaging can appear on your hands, arms, shoulders, and legs, the damage is often most noticeable on facial skin.

What are the benefits of clinical facials?

If you believe that facials are a luxury that should be saved for special occasions, think again: Facials are an excellent way to get vibrant, healthy skin. In fact, making facials a regular part of your long-term skin care routine can help you maintain a fresh, youthful glow all the time.*

The benefits of having regular facials include:

  • Hydration: facials help your skin stay consistently moisturized
  • Brighter skin: facials remove the dead, grey skin cells that cause dull-looking skin
  • Clearer skin: facial extractions unclog the pores to help prevent pimples and blackheads
  • Improved complexion: facials can help reduce the appearance of sun damage, uneven pigmentation, and fine lines
  • Stress relief: the massage component of the facial process can ease tension and help you feel relaxed and re-energized

What is a facial treatment like?

Facials are customized treatments that typically begin with a deep cleanse to remove makeup and other impurities. Next, skin is exfoliated to remove dead skin cells and encourage new cell growth. Then steam is used to deeply cleanse and gently open the pores.

Extractions may be performed to help clear minor breakouts and clogged pores. Finally, after a gentle face and neck massage, a customized, medical-grade mask is applied, followed by moisturizer.

What are the benefits of chemical peels?

A chemical peel is a safe and effective clinical skin treatment that directly addresses the damaging effects of photoaging. It involves the application of a custom, medical-grade chemical solution to help gently peel away the top layer of your skin, which helps reduce the appearance of uneven tone and texture, age spots, wrinkles, and other common problems.*

A chemical peel can be applied to your entire face or just to specific areas, such as the wrinkles around your mouth. The peel’s depth of action depends on a variety of factors, including its ingredients, how it’s applied, and how long it remains on your skin before it’s neutralized.

All chemical peels are designed to exfoliate dead skin cells, improve skin texture, and help open pores. Deeper peels go one step further, helping to correct uneven skin tone and diminish the appearance of wrinkles and dark spots.
