An immediate rejuvenation of the skin by removing the outermost layers of dead skin cells and vellous hair. It is also highly effective at minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while leaving skin smooth, supple and vibrant. Increases penetration of active ingredients in the treatment room and home care products. Creating the perfect canvas for makeup application and is a great go-to treatment to prepare for important occasions.
What does it feel like?
The treatment is very comfortable. It causes no discomfort and feels like a gentle brushing sensation. Your skin is being physically exfoliated using a surgical scalpel blade and brightened with the use of enzymes and correctives. The use of oxygen or a nourishing mask will be used to calm and soothe the skin after and you will leave with a glow like no other!
Who is a candidate?
Anyone concerned about dull, dry skin, a sallow complexion, enlarged pores, fne lines, hyper pigmentation and perhaps acne scars. Also interested in the removal of peach fuzz and maintaining a youthful, healthy appearance. Its great for anti-aging because it provides the instant gratification you are looking for. Plus, the cumulative results from multiple treatments, especially when combined with other modalities such as chemical peels and corrective home care, will be a perfect foundation to your new healthy appearance.
How long is the treatment and how often can I come in?
I recommend 3-4 weeks apart. Perfect for a couple days before a big event and creates the smooth canvas for your makeup to go on with ease. A great alternative for a busy schedule.
Will my peach fuzz grow back thicker?
No. The vellus hair (peach fuzz) will be removed during the session as a bonus to the treatment. Regrowth will be at the pace it always grows for you.
Is there any downtime?
No. Since we are physically exfoliating the skin there will not be any additional peeling or sloughing of the skin. You will need to avoid heat and protect treated areas from the sun by wearing SPF as the skin is in its vulnerable "baby" stage again. If you want to wear makeup I would suggest only using mineral based and clean your brushes before you use them.
