There are a number of Micro Peels done in the Medi-Spa to brighten your skin and correct minor color and texture problems. These are done by our Aesthetician, Lynne Girard. They are excellent accompaniments to basic skin care to keep the skin’s outer dead sell layer thin, thus allowing your inner glow to emerge. They can be done as a standalone or added to a facial for even improved results. These act on only the most outer layer of the skin, so there is no discomfort and no down time.
The Obagi® RADIANCE Blue Peel is a Salicylic acid peel that can improve your skin’s look, texture and feel in a matter of minutes with no down time.
Some benefits of the Radiance Peel are:
It provides instantly tighter, smoother, brighter looking skin after just one use; however, a series of 4 to 6 peels provides the best overall results.
A glycolic peel is a light natural fruit acid chemical peel that can:
During a glycolic peel, the dry, damaged top layer of the skin is removed to reveal healthier, moist skin underneath. These peels can be applied on the face, chest, neck or hands.
Glycolic peels are good for people who do not need or feel ready for deeper resurfacing and those who do not want any visible peeling.
Generally a series of 6 skin treatments administered weekly is recommended, however a single skin treatment can also achieve great results.
A Jessner peel is a stronger peel than a glycolic or lactic peel. It works by combining salicylic acid, lactic acid and resorcinol acid. It is thought to break intracellular bridges between keratinocytes (the epithelial cells) allowing more peeling with the risk of injury to deeper cells.
It is very difficult with this peel to ‘over peel’ the skin due to the mild percentages associated with the acid combination, however, we would only recommend a Jessner peel if you have been using other peels and have not received the desired results or if you have reached a plateau in your peels and need an extra boost.
