Enjoy the pampering and relaxation of a facial while receiving the benefits that offer you and your skin health and wellness. Deep cleansing and exfoliation combined with aromatherapy steam, removing toxins caused by pollution, grease and dirt found in your everyday environment. Facials help to reduce an abundance of sebum (over production of oil), which is a natural substance. Over production of sebum can cause skin problems including blackheads, milia, and acne.

JESSNER and TCA Chemical PEELS

Jessner and TCA peels are considered “medium depth” chemical peels. The three main ingredients that consist in Jessner peel are: Lactic acid, which assists in the exfoliation of the skin. Salicylic acid which aids in penetration, and Resorcino acid which assists with the problem of acne and breakouts. The main ingredient that consists in a TCA peel is Trichloroacetic acid; both of these peels are applied and left on until activated the next day.

What does the peel do?

Here are some of the primary benefits of getting one of these two chemical peels:
• Helps to smooth out various fine lines and wrinkles
• Reduce the appearance of acne scarring
• Reduce the appearance of large pores
• In some cases lightens areas of discoloration
• Can help loosen and reduce acne
• Assists with treatment of melasma
• Restores skin to a more healthy, youthful glow and appearance

HOW IT WORKS

The ingredients in these peels work together to exfoliate the outer layers of the skin by breaking up dead skin cells. The treatment encourages the natural peelings to start several days after the chemical treatment. As a general rule 2 to 5 layers are applied for the best possible results. Typically, a lightweight, non-greasy moisturizer or calming mask is applied to the skin at the end of the treatment and you can go about your day and normal activities.

What to expect

First, you will experience dry, tight skin with slight redness. Your skin may also be sensitive. You can expect your skin to turn to a shade of pink to a shade of brown. It will take about a week for the old damaged skin to peel off. You will be left with a more refreshed, soft and glowing appearance to your face.

Glycolic Acid

Glycolic acid is derived from sugar cane, is probably the most popular grade of alpha hydroxyl acid (AHA) used by Aestheticians for facial peels. Glycolic acid peels are effective, yet they tend to produce the minimum of side effects.
Most of the glycolic acid formulations used by professionals contain concentrations of 40% and higher. (By comparison, over-the-counter cosmetic AHA products contain only 3 to 10% glycolic acid, percentages with questionable usefulness).

What does it do?

Like other AHA peels, glycolic acid peels remove the top layer of dead cells on your skin, revealing a new layer that is smooth-textured. Glycolic acid (50%) peel easily penetrates your skin to exfoliate layers of dead skin cells that dull your completion to immediately expose a clear, softer, more radiant face. Glycolic will also diminish the appearance of age spots, reduce hyper pigmentation to even out skin tone, prevent blemishes and help reduce acne scarring and breakouts. Also helps to stimulate new cell growth, improving skin's elasticity. Its a great peel that requires almost no "down time" with beautiful results!
