Clinical Skin Care
A peel is a controlled chemical exfoliation, mild to moderate. It is an effective tool to minimize and refine large pores, treat acne and hyperpigmentation, soften age lines, and bring back that healthy glow. A careful choice is made from a wide variety of peels: pumpkin, papaya, cherry or mango enzymes; TCA, salicylic, lactic, glycolic, mandelic, and other acids.
Lunch time (maintenance) peels involve minimal to no recovery. They re-hydrate and rejuvenate dull, impure skin, leaving it smoother, tighter and glowing. BioMedic MicroPeel and enzyme peels are often incorporated into our European Facials for that results-oriented, pampered bliss.
With our moderate (mid-depth) peels, plan on peeling! These peels address sun damaged, impure skin; they help decrease appearance of fine lines and boost cellular rejuvenation. Our most popular mid-depth peels are Vi Peel, Melanin Lift, and BioMedic MicroPeel Plus.
Vi Peel - before and after
Unique blend of ingredients in Vi Peel produces powerful results with no pain, no skin preparation and very little downtime. The Vi Peel will:
Great results after just two sessions of ViPeel for Acne.
Finally! A solution for post-inflammatory, sun or hormone-induced hyperpigmentation: age spots, sun spots, post-acne spots, pregnancy mask, stubborn melasma. Cosmelan Depigmentation treatment lightens the dark patches by reducing the melanin (pigment) concentration and production.
There is no intense burning or stinging with the application or thereafter; although, there is an annoyance factor of wearing a beige mask for 8-12 hours… While there could be mild swelling (mainly around the eye area) and light peeling in the first day or two post-treatment, most clients report lack of drama. Many start seeing significant results overnight and most report 75%+ clearing within the first week.
Cosmelan is safe for all skin types and ages, and treatments can start during any season.
Microdermabrasion and dermaplaning are professional physical resurfacing modalities to help exfoliate upper layers of non-viable skin cells. They are often used to reduce textural irregularities, treat acne-prone and congested skin, and improve the appearance of uneven pigmentation, wrinkles, pores and scars. The newly exposed skin immediately looks and feels softer, smoother and fresher, allowing topical treatments to be absorbed easier and penetrate deeper. Potentiated by custom enzymatic and anti-oxidant applications, these popular modalities stimulate collagen production, new cell formation, and bring on a radiant glow.
Microdermabrasion: A resurfacing technique that uses a controlled gentle spray and vacuum of medical grade ultra-fine crystals to superficially abrade away top epidermal layer. This method is not used on skin with broken capillaries, inflammatory acne or rosacea.
Dermaplaning: This resurfacing technique has been enjoyed in Europe and Japan for many years. Using a modified scalpel and a gentle, steady touch, this resurfacing technique removes dead surface layers of skin as well as the vellus hair (peach fuzz). This method allows better control on problem areas and is safe to use with sensitive skin.
OmniLuxTM is an FDA-approved medical device that utilizes LED (light emitting diode) technology to ensure optimal photo-modulation of target skin cells. It uses the blue light, OmniLux blueTM (415nm), in conjunction with red light, OmniLux reviveTM (633nm), to destroy acne-causing bacteria, decrease inflammation, oil production and pore size, and stimulate new cell growth and collagen production, resulting in a healthier, younger-looking skin.
The OmniLuxTM light therapy stimulates natural processes that continue well after the treatment has stopped. While dramatic improvement can usually be seen in the 2nd week of treatment, optimum results will be seen 4-8 weeks after the course of treatments is completed. Treatment packages include enzymatic masks, dermaplaning or microdermabrasion, as needed.
Acne vulgaris package: 8 sessions over 4 weeks with alternating LEDs: - OmniLux blueTM (anti-bacterial) and - OmniLux reviveTM (anti-inflammatory and rejuvenating).
Skin Rejuvenation package: 9 sessions over 3 weeks with OmniLux reviveTM
