WHAT IS A FACIAL?
Facials improve the health and appearance of the skin and serve as beautifying skin treatments. Facials are an essential part of the most effective skincare routines to treat specific skin conditions or just maintain the general wellbeing of your skin. These treatments are performed by trained professionals nad they deliver outstanding results that you cannot achieve with products from your bathroom cupboard.
Facials often conjure up images of repeated cleansing and creams, serums, and gels being applied and worked into the skin. Although these are the foundation of a good facial let us not forget about the powered handheld devices and light-emitting machines that have gained a lot of popularity.
To deliver the type of facial treatments Chicago loves we offer customizable, results-oriented treatments without all the unnecessary fluff. This makes them perfect for those short of time or in need of a quick treatment for all skin types to reveal a healthier, more radiant complexion.
WHAT IS A CHEMICAL PEEL FACIAL AND WHAT DOES IT DO?
One of the facials Chicago residents prefer is a chemical peel that treats skin aging concerns such as dullness, sun damage, hyperpigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, and loss of elastin and collagen. A chemical peel treats all these concerns at once to take years off your skin. They offer a wide anti-aging focus and are one of the best facial treatments for aging skin
The resurfacing effect of a chemical peel removes the outer layer of skin and removes all dead and damaged skin cells to reveal beautiful, bright skin underneath. This treatment stimulates the growth of new healthy skin cells through the application of chemical solutions ranging from mild to intense which kickstarts facial resurfacing.
ARE FACIAL CHEMICAL PEELS SAFE?
When performed by trained professionals’ chemical peels are perfectly safe. We have the best skin care specialist Chicago has to offer and they will determine the strength of chemical solution suitable for your skin type.
DIY chemical peel facial treatments are not advised especially if you are a novice in this process and have not received expert guidance on facial resurfacing.
WHAT IS GREEN PEEL AND HOW DOES IT WORK?
As an alternative to chemical peels that burns your skin, we offer GREEN PEEL®. This mixture of nine selected herbs contains enzymes, minerals, and vitamins, which are massaged into the skin. This natural peel stimulates collagen production, reduces signs of aging, and eliminates skin imperfections such as acne, acne scars, and hyperpigmentation without the use of chemical or surgical procedures. The herbs gently lift dead and damaged skin and nourish it to encourage renewal.
WHAT IS MICRODERMABRASION?
If you need a minimally invasive procedure used to renew overall skin tone and texture then microdermabrasion is ideal for you. We use a special applicator with an abrasive surface to gently remove the thick outer layer of the skin to rejuvenate it. This microdermabrasion Chicago residents love reduces the appearance of sun damage, wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, acne scarring, melasma, and other skin-related concerns and conditions.
WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER MICRODERMABRASION?
You will see noticeable results immediately after the microdermabrasion facial Chicago based treatment. The best part of microdermabrasion is that you can resume your daily activities immediately without any side effects. You just need to keep your skin well hydrated and use gentle skincare products.
A good idea is to avoid topical acne medications for at least one day after treatment. Your skin can be more sun-sensitive for a few weeks after treatment so you should protect your skin with sunscreen. The severity of your skin concerns as well as your expected results will determine the number of treatments you require.
Dermaplaning makes your skin look smooth, youthful, and radiant. It is a skin treatment using an exfoliating blade to skim dead skin cells and hair from your face and is often called micro-planing or blading. With this treatment, our skin care clinic Chicago experts can remove deep, uneven pockmarks and the short, soft hairs from your face.
WHAT TO EXPECT?
Your skin will look noticeably brighter after the treatment, but it often takes a few days to appreciate the full results. Even though there normally are no noticeable side-effects from dermaplaning treatment you may experience some redness and tenderness in the two or three days right after the procedure. As any redness subsides, you’ll be able to see the results more clearly in the days afterward.
The results from dermaplaning treatments aren’t permanent as the procedure clears away up to three weeks’ worth of dead skin cells. Your results will fade after three weeks to a month.
