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.

What is Dermaplaning? What are the Benefits?

Dermaplaning has become one of the hottest skincare treatments, so what is it and why is it so popular? Dermaplaning is an exfoliating skincare treatment, that removes dead skin and peach fuzz. The treatment consists of using a surgical scalpel, to help provide smoother skin, zero peach fuzz , and slightly brighter-looking skin. Plus, all your amazing products will be able to penetrate your skin more effectively, thus getting you the best results!
A lot of people hear surgical scalpels and ask will dermaplaning hurt? The truth is that you will notice the blade during your treatment, but there should never be any pain. People also like to ask if they will see any breakouts after their treatment. Dead skin and hair follicles are a major cause of breakouts so removing these actually help prevent breakouts. Another question we hear is there any downtime involved with dermaplaning treatments? The answer is no, there might be some slight redness afterwards, but the majority do not feel that they need any downtime. Even though there is no downtime needed, we always recommend that you wait a day before wearing make-up. This allows your skin to breathe and helps prevent your skin from becoming annoyed.
Most people tend to get a dermaplaning facial once a month. While people with sensitive skin will only get it done seasonally. One thing to consider, is that dermaplaning can make your skin more susceptible to the sun. That means using a good sunscreen that has at least 30 SPF. If you don’t have a good sunscreen in your daily skincare regimen, then make sure to ask your Aesthetician.
Overall, dermaplaning is an amazing skincare treatment and can be performed on all different skin types. The benefits are super beneficial and with no downtime how can you beat that?

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.
