Chemical Peels: What You Need to Know

Chemical peels are an effective way to improve skincare issues and should be incorporated into your skincare routine. They can help improve tone, texture, fine lines and wrinkles, breakouts and dark spots. People can be intimidated about getting their first peel so here is everything you need to know about chemical peels.
Sometimes after receiving chemical peels, people can experience peeling. This can be a normal part of the exfoliation process. When then skin peels or flakes, this is your skin shedding dead or damaged cells. It allows new and healthy skin cells to be revealed, creating glowing beautiful skin. This process helps remove signs of aging, sun damage, blemish marks, dirt and debris.
There are various types of peeling and this can depend upon your skin type, and a various of other factors. Some types of peeling that one may experience may include “sheeting” or “flaking” of the skin. Sheeting involves when large portions of the the skin peel off at once and flaking of the skin can resemble side effects of a sunburn.
Peeling does not always happen when you receive chemical peels. Some people worry that the chemical peel was ineffective, but do not stress, everyone skin is different and have their own forms of exfoliating. Basically, if you are not visually seeing the exfoliation process your skin is still exfoliating but on a cellular level. Usually, the more intense the chemical, the more extensive the peeling will be experience. This is something your aesthetician will decide after a detailed skin consultation.

MicroNeedling vs MicroChanneling

Microneedling and microchanneling are becoming the most sought out choice for skin rejuvenation! They achieve the same results, however, there are some key differences.
The main difference is the type of device that is used to perform the treatment and the technique. Primarily, it is the device that is used to perform the treatment and the technique. Microneedling typically involves using a handheld “roller” or “pen” covered in tiny needles that is dragged over the skin. Microchanneling uses a “stamping” technique, which creates micro vertical channels into the skin for better product penetration and less trauma. Performing the treatment with this prevents the possibility of  micro-tears to the skin as well as over working the skin.
Both treatment options are capable correcting deeper skin imperfections, such as scarring, fine lines, wrinkles, skin texture, and much more!  Once the microchannels are created in the skin, a serum is applied to the skin. It consists of hyaluronic acid and human stem cell growth factors, which amplify results as well as accelerate recovery time.
Overall, microchanneling is the next generation of microneedling! It’s safer, less invasive method that allows for less down time and leaves clients with healthy rejuvenated skin.
At Cosmetic Aesthetics, they use a device made by ProCell Therapies which falls under the category of microchanneling. We have partnered up with them for their amazing skills and knowledge in the beauty industry. If you are ready to achieve the results with microchanneling, give them a call at 1-833-tattoo-u!

The benefits of getting a facial!

Facials can restore and relax both your skin, body, and mind. While it is true, facials can be a great way to feel pampered, there are tons of benefits of receiving them regularly.

The main reason of getting a facial is for the improvement of the skin. Most estheticians when performing a facial will provide a gentle cleansing, mild exfoliation, steam, and massage of the face. It is important to remember that the esthetician can always decide after consulting with the clients’ goals and achievements if there are other services that should be added with the facial to ensure correctional skin issues, such as a chemical peel, microneedling, dermaplanning, and microdermabrasion.

Another great benefit of getting a facial, is the production of collagen growth. Collagen is found throughout the body, as we age the amount of collagen becomes depleted. Facial treatments help build collagen and improve the skin on a cellular level.

Facials are also a great way to stimulate blood circulation of the skin. Healthy blood flow helps remove waste like free radicals which cause aging and dull complexion. By gentle massaging of the skin, blood circulation is stimulated and helps restore brightness and prevent signs of aging.
