How Many Chemical Peels Does It Take to See Results?

You may have heard that a chemical peel can refresh and rejuvenate your skin with no real downtime and has fast results.

What Is a Chemical Peel?

A chemical peel is a facial treatment in which a chemical solution is placed on the face. The chemical causes the skin to peel after a day or two, and the peeling will continue for several days.

Chemical Peels Vs. Microneedling: Choosing the Best Option for You

  • Blog

When you want to pamper yourself and your skin, there are many options from which to choose. From facials to chemical peels to more aggressive anti-aging treatments, there is something out there for everyone. Both chemical peels and microneedling help to clear the skin and refresh its health and youth. Here is what you need to know about these two procedures to choose the right one for you.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are one way to exfoliate the skin, which cleans it and also gives it a fresh new look. The chemicals are painted onto the face for a brief time. Afterwards, within a day or two your skin will start peeling. This cleans the pores very well. The peeling also clears away dead and dull skin and triggers the body’s natural healing response so that a new, fresh, youthful layer of skin takes form. Chemical peels are great for reducing the signs of aging and giving your skin a new lease on life. (more…)

What is a Microcurrent Face Lift and What to Expect

  • Blog

If you have noticed sagging in your features, or the appearance of lines and wrinkles, you might be considering a face lift. Instead of going through a complex surgery, there is a minimally invasive facial that can help you achieve results without surgery or downtime. A Microcurrent face lift is a special type of facial that firms and tightens the skin, while minimizing the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

What is Microcurrent Face Lift

A microcurrent face lift is achieved with a special device that sends microcurrents of energy into the deep tissues of the face and skin. These microcurrents do several things. First, they stimulate adenosine triphosphate, which in turn triggers the body’s natural collagen and elastin production. Collagen and elastin are the two components of the body that help keep skin firm, tight, and wrinkle free. Collagen and elastin decrease in the body naturally over time, and this treatment helps to boost it. (more…)
