Chemical Peels and Other Facial Treatments: Why They’re So Important
What do you think of when you think of a facial? Maybe words like relaxing, luxurious, or pampered and images of a big bathrobe and cucumbers on the eyes come to mind. While facials may be many of those things, we think the utility of facials and facial treatments get missed in the pop culture descriptions of a trip to the spa.
While we are in complete support of any chance to relax, we also understand the importance of skincare from a health perspective. Your skin is the first line of defense against the elements, pathogens, and other harmful intruders that could harm the body.
The power is in your hands on a day to day basis with the skincare routine that you choose to do at home. However, in the spa, clients have access to much more effective, active, and deeper penetrating treatments like chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and dermaplaning. These treatments are instrumental in maintaining the integrity of the skin. Of course, the added benefits of a youthful, radiant appearance don’t hurt!
Faster Cell Turnover
As we age, our cell turnover slows down. This means it can take much longer for old skin to shed and new, healthy skin to emerge. A chemical peel safely and effectively speeds up that process and results in a more effective, and more radiant, protective barrier of skin on your face. Our chemical peels range in strength and are chosen to fit the specific needs of your skin.
Faster Skin Repair
Additionally, slightly less active services like microdermabrasion, or dermaplaning are still highly effective in encouraging skin repair which, in turn, increases your skin’s ability to protect you! Just as our bodies require regular visits to the doctor or the dentist, our skin requires regular maintenance as well. For best results, facials with treatments should be scheduled monthly to best support your daily care at home.
