Chemical Peels- Hydrating

Our Peel menu has changed. View our NEW Chemical Peel Menu

Hydrating Peel

Our peels have been designed to safely remove the outer layers of the skin through the application of organic acids derived from various natural sources. This process brings fresh plump cells to the surface of the skin giving it a vibrant, healthy, smooth and even appearance.

HYDRATING PEEL

Description: Chemical peels work by separating the upper layers of the skin causing an accelerated cell turnover rate. Because of their molecular structure, these acids are able to penetrate past the acid mantle of the skin and deep into the layers beneath the surface of the skin. This causes your skin to shed and regenerate a new layer of skin in a 1 to 2 week period.

The acids we use in our professional chemical peels are typically derived from natural sources and produced for safe usage on the skin.

This acid peel solution provides intense exfoliation for normal combination and dry skin types concerned with aging and hyperpigmentation. It contains 35% glycolic and 35% lactic acid.

Pre-treatment protocols:

    • Must not currently be on or have used Accutane or any other oral prescription acne medications in the past 12 months
    • If currently using any products containing AHA/BHA/Retin A/Vitamin A on the area being treated, you must discontinue usage 2 weeks prior to procedure
    • Must wait a minimum of 1 week from last tanning session.

  • NOTE: To be eligible for this treatment your skin must be pretreated with AHA or BHA (e.g. Enzyme Peel or pretreated with home care).

Time frame: 15-30 minutes

Recommended sessions: 4-8

Downtime required: 1-7 days

Contraindications:

  • Diabetes
  • Pregnancy
  • Skin cancer (remission under 2 years)
  • Use of photosensitive medication and herbs
  • Active infection of Herpes Simplex in treatment area
  • Active skin infection

Potential side effects:

  • Discomfort
  • Fragile skin
  • Edema (swelling)
  • Erythema (redness)
  • Visible shedding

Chemical Peels- Enzyme

Our Peel menu has changed. View our NEW Chemical Peel Menu

Enzyme Chemical Peel; Ideal for all skin types.

Our peels have been designed to safely remove the outer layers of the skin through the application of organic acids derived from various natural sources. This process brings fresh plump cells to the surface of the skin giving it a vibrant, healthy, smooth and even appearance.

PLEASE REVIEW THE CRITERIA BEFORE BOOKING YOUR ENZYME PEEL.

Description: Chemical peels work by separating the upper layers of the skin causing an accelerated cell rejuvenation rate. Because of their molecular structure, these acids are able to penetrate past the acid mantle of the skin and deep into the layers beneath the surface of the skin and dissolve away dead cells. This causes your skin to shed and regenerate a new layer of skin in a 1 to 2 week period.

The acids we use in our professional chemical peels are typically derived from natural sources and produced for safe usage on the skin.

Our Enzyme Peel is a 20% multi-fruit acid complex. It is made of white grape wine and fresh fruit pulp that gently exfoliates the upper epidermis while wine polyphenols condition the skin.

Pre-treatment protocols:

  • Must not currently be on or have used Accutane or any other oral prescription acne medications in the past 12 months
  • If currently using any products containing AHA/BHA/Retin A/Vitamin A on the area being treated, you must discontinue usage 2 weeks prior to procedure
  • Must wait a minimum of 1 week from last tanning session

Time frame: 15-30 minutes

Recommended sessions: 4-8

Downtime required: 1-7 days

Contraindications:

  • Diabetes
  • Pregnancy
  • Skin cancer (remission under 2 years)
  • Use of photosensitive medication and herbs
  • Active infection of Herpes Simplex in treatment area
  • Active skin infection

Potential side effects:

  • Discomfort
  • Fragile skin
  • Edema (swelling)

The difference between LASER and IPL

Dérmica- the difference between laser and IPL

What is the difference between LASER and IPL?

Q: WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN LASER AND IPL?
A: IPL and Laser are light-based treatment methods used in the skincare and med esthetics industry to treat a variety of common skin conditions and permanent hair reduction.
The IPL and Laser equipment deliver their results by emitting a specific range of light energy towards a specific target in the skin. In a successful treatment the light energy is absorbed by water, blood, or pigment in the skin, which are eradicated without causing disruption the surrounding tissue.

IPL (Intense Pulsed Light)


IPL technologies project flashes of light energy onto the surface of the skin. The handheld device is placed directly on the skin and flashed at set intervals. The device emits a broad band of light energy into the skin, which is then quickly absorbed by the target. The diameter covered by the spot size varies and is ideal for larger areas.

IPL treatments are said to have less discomfort involved during the procedure, and require shorter recover periods and visible down-time. The peak temperature during these sessions is typically lower than that of Laser, making it ideal for treating heat sensitive skin conditions such as Melasma and Rosacea.

LASER (Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation)

Lasers operate by emitting a single wave of steady or pulsed laser light into their target. Depending on the manufacturer of the Laser equipment, some lasers are not suitable for all skin tones or skin conditions; therefore the technician is required to use different attachments or machines for treatment.

The spot size used to treat with laser is more concentrated, therefore smaller, and procedure time can be longer. For treatment of skin conditions, Laser tends to have a longer period of recovery and visible down-time following sessions. Lasers are said to be ideal for treating leg veins and tattoo removal.

IPL and Laser are both safe and effective treatment methods for treating skin conditions and permanently reducing unwanted hair. It is important to remember that results vary with both methods, there are specific guidelines to follow pre/post treatment, and number of sessions can range from 4-12.

For clients who meet the skin and/or hair criteria for IPL or Laser, the success of treatment is also influenced by the quality of equipment being used, and the technician’s knowledge of operating light-based technology.

In summary, the major difference between the two IPL and Laser is the range of light energy emitted by the device. Regardless of whether you choose IPL or Laser, it is always best to do your research.
