STAFF BLOG – IT’S PEEL SEASON!

Hi, it’s Nurse Jaimee here,

Has summer left you with dull, dehydrated, sun-damaged and devitalized skin? Are you looking for a treatment capable of reducing the appearance of fine lines, enlarged pores, uneven tone, and texture? If you have lost that summertime, sun-kissed glow, a chemical peel is a safe and non-invasive procedure to refresh and improve the overall health of your skin. We offer superficial and medium depth peels and can customize the peel to suit your individual needs.

There are various types of acids in the chemical peel treatments. These include; resorcinol, lactic, trichloroacetic (TCA), and salicylic acid. A chemical peel allows the skin to shed revealing new, healthy and radiant skin. During a chemical peel, you will experience mild tingling and a sensation of heat. Post-treatment, the skin will feel tight and within 48 hours the skin will begin to peel and shed. The peeling process takes approximately five to seven days to complete. It is important to not pick or peel your skin during this time.

Your skin will be sensitive to the sun, so it is extremely important to apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen after treatment. I highly recommend using, Elta MD 40-50 SPF Skin Care. It is also important to discontinue the use of products containing retinol, hydroquinone, and any products containing alpha-hydroxy acids (glycolic and lactic) and beta hydroxy acid (salicylic) for five to seven days pre and post-treatment.

If you have been prescribed any topical or oral drugs for a specific skin condition such as acne, please check with your Health Care Provider before beginning treatment. It is important to apply soothing and hydrating products during the five to seven days following treatment. A series of three to six treatments four weeks apart is recommended for optimal results. It is also important to continue to have peels every three months to maintain results.

If you are ready to say goodbye to dull and sad skin, and say hello to healthy, vibrant and glowing skin, come and see us for a chemical peel.

We currently have a flash sale running until the 27th of September, with peels at only $67 each!

Until next time,

Jaimee
