Corrector Peel facial

What Exactly Is a Corrector Peel facial?


In essence, our corrector Peel Facial removing dead skin cells and stimulating the growth of new ones. “There are three types of chemical peels: superficial ones that work on the surface and target the outer, dead layer of skin cells and medium or deep peels that go further into the epidermis for deeper resurfacing action,” Regardless of depth, they all work in the same way—breaking down the “glue” that binds our skin dead cells together. This allows the unnecessary upper layers to be whisked away, leaving the new-before-seen skin to shine through.




The Benefits


Superficial chemical peels can be used to reduce the appearance of fine lines, even skin tone, improve pigmentation and treat acne while deeper peels can also stimulate collagen production. The normal rate of skin cell turnover is between 21 and 28 days, and this rate tends to slow down dramatically in our late 20s. Superficial Corrector Peels help to increase this cellular turnover in the form of exfoliation and to stimulate healthy cell growth.




Is My Skin a Fit For Peeling?


The only people who shouldn’t touch peels with a glycolic or lactic acid are those who have allergies to the ingredients included or have inflamed and active skin diseases — everyone else can benefit from a good cleanse and polish.




Downtime and Aftercare


Again, it depends on the type of peel. We have it’s light and superficial that you might find your skin looks perfectly fine post-treatment. A medium peel might take a week to heal while a deeper peel could take up to a 2 weeks for downtime. Post-treatment mask sheet that include excellent source of collagen and vitamin c & E masks are being developed to soothe soreness, flood skin with moisture and enhance the healing process after treatment. They can also help reduce inflammation and prevent pigmentation.





IPL Photofacial

What is IPL Photofacial?


A photofacial, or fotofacial, also known as photorejuvenation, is a treatment touted to reverse sun damage, even out facial color as well as improve tone and texture in the process. In other words, photofacial treatments reportedly:

  • tighten pores
  • reduce the severity of acne
  • reduce the appearance of or eliminate sun spots and freckles
  • lessen hyperpigmentation
  • improve facial contour
  • tighten skin
  • boost collagen and elastin production




What does IPL PhotoFacial feel like?


The procedure is gentle, non-invasive, and safe. While everyone has a different tolerance, there is usually no need for a topical anesthetic. Should you feel discomfort, your treatment provider can provide you with a topical numbing cream for use on sensitive areas.




How do I prepare for the treatment?


During the initial consultation, our staff of medical and nursing professionals will advise you how to best prepare for treatment. You should stay out of direct sunlight or tanning beds and refrain from using medications that make you more sensitive to light.




How many treatments will I need?


The number of treatments needed will vary, and your treatment provider will personalize a treatment plan for you. With about 5 sessions to address pigmentation issues like brown spots or age spot concerns.




What can I expect after IPL Photofaical?


Immediately after treatment, expect to see redness with mild swelling. Brown spots, age spots and freckles will turn 2-3 shades darker after treatment which will then flake off. Your skin may feel similar to a slight sunburn in the treated area. This should dissipate within hours but could last a day or two. Sun spots, age spots should begin to clear up in one to two weeks. You can expect to see brighter, healthier looking skin several days after treatment.

You might also feel warm sensation with slight tingling sensation or a little tingling sensation depends on how the treatment area is sensitive. Please do not hesitate to let technician know if you feel uncomfortable with the sensation, we can increase the cooling system for your comfort.




How many treatments are necessary?


Until now hair had to be treated during the growing phase (20%-30% depending on the area) Since growth cycles vary, approx. 6-10 treatments are usually necessary.




Will there be any side-effects?


Skin is more sensitive in some areas of the body than in others and redness can occur as a side effect. It should disappear in a matter of hours but could potentially be as intense as sunburn lasting a few days.




How long does it take to see the results?


It usually takes 2 to 3 weeks before the hair is actually shed.




Are 2-3 week touch-ups safe & effective?


A 2 to 3 week touch-up is neither safe nor effective. Some laser hair removal centers may offer a complementary touch-up at the 2 weeks marker, but this is not a safe practice. We space each laser hair removal treatment approximately 4 to 8 weeks apart depending on individual's hair density, hair growth cycle as well as the factors of hair growth. Laser hair removal done too soon is not only ineffective, it can also put the skin at risk for burning or scarring.

Fillers

What is a Dermal Filler?


A dermal filler is an injectable, biocompatible gel used to help fill in facial wrinkles, restore volume loss, and augment facial features for a smooth, youthful appearance. The gel is comprised of cross-linked Hyaluronic Acid.




What is Hyaluronic Acid?


Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a natural substance found in all human skin. Thus, HA injections are biocompatible (does not harm the body) and biodegradable (broken down by the body). These products are injectected into the skin or deeper tissues to help correct skin depressions such as creases, wrinkles, folds, scars, degenerative skin aging, and restore lost facial volume due to facial lipoatrophy (loss of fat).

Why Dysport®?


Botox, Xeomin, and Dysport® are the trademark for neuromodulators with the same active component. At our clinic, we chose Dysport® as out go-to neuromodulator, however, upon clients; request, we can lso provide treatment wit Botox or Seomin as well. We chose Dysport® because it has faster on-set and may last longer based on studies and out experience. Studies also suggest that regular Dysport® treatments not ony make you look younger while in effecr, but may prevent a further deepening of dynamic lines and wrinkles over time, thus helping to delay the aging process.




How Does Dysport® Work?


Dysport® is one of the treademark for neuromodulators that has been used for cosmetic purposes in North America since the late 1990's. it is designed to relax facial muscles to treat wrinkles. When a small amount of neuromodulator is injeted into a muscle, it works by inhibiting nerve signals that act to contract muscles. This in turn causes the lines and wrinkles to diminish. It is by far the most popular cosmetic procedure that is highly effective, non-invasive and with no downtime. To learn more about this popular wrinkle treatment, please call our office to book a consultation with our doctors.
