We all seek healthy, attractive skin, but sun exposure, pollutants, environmental elements, and lack of proper skin care compromises about 80 percent of the skin’s aging process. Fortunately, modern cosmetic chemistry now allows us to formulate advanced treatments, procedures, and products that can refine skin texture to look smoother, clearer, and much younger.
What Are Facials?
If there’s one thing you can add to your on-going skincare regimen, make it a facial! A facial cleanses, exfoliates, and nourishes the skin in order to promote a hydrated, clear, youthful complexion.
Come to Ultimate Image to receive a facial, and one of our knowledgeable aestheticians will analyze your skin to determine the best facial for your needs. We offer a variety of treatments that utilize oils, creams, and serums to deliver healthier, brighter skin in no time at all. You’ll get to relax and de-stress as one of our experts eliminates dead skin cells, cleans your pores, rehydrates your skin, and restores balance to your appearance.
What Are Chemical Peels?
This non-surgical cosmetic procedure is used to peel away the skin’s top layer in order to improve the appearance of the skin on the face, necks, or hands. It can minimize sun damage, equalize the skin’s pigment, and lessen the appearance of wrinkles.
If you’re interested in a chemical peel, you can choose from various treatment strengths that determine the depth of penetration (light, medium, or deep), length of time (3-10 minutes), and concentration of acid (30-70 percent). You can also choose from Glycolic, Lactic, Salicylic, AHA with vitamin C, Jessner, TCA, and more.
How Does A Chemical Peel Work?
After a brief skin analysis, one of our expert aestheticians will select the chemical peel that will meet your exact needs and concerns. The aesthetician will then apply the chosen chemical solution to your skin. It will eventually cause the skin to exfoliate and peel off. The new, regenerated skin will be smoother, less wrinkled, and more radiant.
Types of Chemical Peels
Glycolic Acid Peel: This superficial peel is often called a “lunchtime peel” because it involves minimal peeling and no downtime. It’s a great peel for beginners and will effectively smooth the appearance of fine lines, add clarity to the skin, and refine texture and hydration.
Lactic Acid Peel: This is an excellent treatment for dry, sensitive skin conditions. It comes in different strengths and is recommended as a series of treatments for long-lasting results.
Salicylic Peel: The perfect peel to target oily and acne-prone skins. It comes in different strengths and is recommended as a series of treatments for long-lasting results.
Jessner, Fusion, AHA Brightening, & Vitamin C Peels: These are medium strength peels that target sun damage, melasma, acne scarring, rough skin texture, blackheads, whiteheads, and large pores. Peeling occurs about three to four days after the chemical peel treatment.
TCA Peel: This peel is for more advanced clients. The strength of 20-30 percent creates a temporary heat and stinging reaction, but the treatment offers immediate results of clean, clear skin with renewed luminosity.
