Fantastic Services for Your Skin Care Needs

As the largest organ of your body, your skin serves as a waterproof protective barrier that aids in temperature regulation and the expulsion of toxins. Understanding how your skin functions will help you see how the skin care services we provide will give back that youthful glow to your skin.

Your skin is continually making new cells to replace the dead and dying ones. Around 20 layers of dead skin sit atop your skin, which can make it appear chalky and dull. The dead skin also provides food for bacteria on the surface of your skin and can clog your pores, causing whiteheads, blackheads and pimples to form.

We provide several types of facial services for women and men to improve skin health and appearance. Depending on your age, skin type and history, the best skin care choices will be made with you. Our staff will discuss these factors and the treatments we provide to ensure that you will be highly satisfied with the way you look.

Professional Esthetician Facial Options

Facials are one of the most popular services we offer, particularly for the skin. You will discover this affordable indulgence can work wonders on your skin and your mind. After all, when you work hard every day, you need and deserve to pamper yourself from time to time!

If you have not used any professional facial or peel services before, you will be amazed at how much better your skin feels to the touch. For those with damaged skin such as old acne scars, you will begin to see even more improvement over time if you continue to have facials on a regular basis. Discuss your personal needs with your esthetician.

The basic facial treatment is based on European beauty practices and will leave you feeling brightened and refreshed. Not only will your skin be cleaner, the treatment involves a facial massage, which is incredibly relaxing. Your skin will be smoother and have better tone and clarity.

If you have acne-prone skin, it will reduce your breakouts and sloughs away dead skin cells on the surface of your skin. Hyperpigmented areas will appear lighter and less noticeable.

However, you may need a deep pore treatment instead. This facial is more intense than the basic one, sweeping deep into your pores to loosen and remove the dead skin cells, excess sebum and other debris trapped within them. The result will be a fresher, revitalized appearance.

Chemical Peels: Releasing Your Inner Glow

Although facials can do wonders for your skin, many people find that they need deeper services for their skin. We provide three types of chemical peels for our customers to choose from. Each of these is safe, though you will need to check regarding any medications that you are taking. These can sometimes cause adverse reactions as can excessive sun exposure.

The two most popular types of peels are those with alpha hydroxy acid, AHA, or beta hydroxy acid, BHA. While these have some similarities, there are also important differences. The primary one is that AHA is water soluble whereas BHA is fat soluble. This difference influences how the acid peels work on your skin.

The AHA peels will help to remove the outermost layer of your skin, revealing fresher, younger skin beneath. Remember that you have around 20 layers of dead skin cells on the surface of your skin. This will help to get rid of those unneeded cells and reveal the tissue below.

For customers who are acne-prone, BHA works better in most cases. This is because the fat-soluble acid works better at breaking down the substances in your blackheads and whiteheads. This is usually a mixture of dead skin cells and excess oil. These two form a soft, solid material that prevents your pores from breathing properly. When the surface of the pore is exposed to the air, that material becomes oxidized, turning the surface black. This, rather than dirt, is the reason blackheads are darker than whiteheads.

The third chemical peel we offer is one made with pumpkin and fruit enzymes. These peels not only break down the dead skin, they have great nutrients which readily penetrate the skin.

About Our Crystal Microdermabrasion Service

If you are hesitant to have a chemical peel but want the benefits of it, speak to your esthetician about crystal microdermabrasion for your face and decolletage. This wonderful procedure can reveal beautiful glowing skin, even for those who have multiple skin problems.

This form of exfoliation removes the damaged skin on the surface and stimulates the building of collagen deeper within. It can reduce excessive oil production and help to smooth the texture of your skin. Additionally, this treatment does wonders at getting rid of hyperpigmentation problems caused by age, sun damage and acne.

You will see a fading of your acne scars and a reduction in clogged pores. Wrinkles will be smoother and fine lines diminished. For clients with rosacea, they have smoother and softer skin as a result of the microdermabrasion procedure. For clients with significant scarring, repeated treatments can provide a remarkable transformation. You can repeat the treatments as often as your esthetician recommends.

Taking care of your skin is important to how you look and feel. When you have a healthy glow about you, others notice it as well. In order to keep your skin looking great throughout the year, you need to address taking care of it each day and treat yourself to spa services on a regular basis.

Make sure that you stay hydrated and eat a wide range of produce throughout the week so your skin has all of the vitamins and minerals necessary for repair. Don’t forget to consume healthy fats, such as those found in avocados, salmon and nuts because these will help to keep your skin smooth. Also, clean your skin well, particularly after wearing makeup, each and every day.

Then, let us help you with our professional skin care treatments to bring out the best in your appearance!
