I am now offering Professional Grade Chemical Peels...
Chemical peels are an effective way to correct acne scars, address uneven pigmentation, improve the texture and tone of the skin, smooth out fine lines, and more. Chemical peels, also known as TCA (trichloroacetic acid) chemical peels, provide more dramatic results than light chemical peels.
What is a TCA Chemical Peel?
(TCA) chemical peels penetrate the skin more deeply than light chemical peels. In administering a medium chemical peel, the doctor applies a solution containing trichloroacetic acid to the skin. This chemical solution, which is custom formulated for each patient, works by removing the dull, damaged outer layers of skin — those affected by acne, fine lines, sun exposure, and other factors. In the week or so after treatment, these dead layers of skin slough off, revealing a new, smooth layer of skin.
TCA chemical peels are popular because they are an excellent “spot” treatment that can be used on any area of the body and can be completed in as little as 15 minutes. For best results, patients typically complete a prescribed series of treatments, with each treatment spaced two to three months apart.

A Facial it's More Than Meets the Eye, facials regulate the immune system, aid in detoxification, reduce the amount of fluid that has built up in the body, and aid in stress relief when it includes "aromatherapy, lymphatic drainage, exfoliation treatments and acupuncture." Lymphatic drainage helps release toxins that have built up in the body.
Benefits of Facial Massages in Facials
Facials typically involve massages. These massages aid in blood circulation. Massages during facials also help with lymphatic drainage, and aid in the relaxation of the facial muscles which can slow the onset of wrinkles in the face. Skin cells can also be renewed by using this technique, which can also reduce puffiness and sagging in the face.
When a person is struggling with acne, suffering from a dull complexion, or facing a superficial skin issue, regular facials can help fix these problems. Facials can give a person a clean and bright complexion, as well as remove dirt and blackheads.
There are a variety of facials that can provide many health benefits. Anti-oxidant facials contain free-radical fighting nutrients such as Vitamins A and E, which help remove pollutants from the body. Collagen facials use warm vapor, deep pore cleansing, and lymphatic draining massages, which benefit the skin by preventing wrinkles, reducing dark circles and ridding the body of environmental toxins.

Microdermabrasion, also referred to as mechanical exfoliation or micro-resurfacing, is a method for facial rejuvenation that uses a mechanical medium for exfoliation along with adjustable suction to remove away the outermost layer of dead skin cells from the epidermis. It is a non-invasive procedure, which is performed in-office by a trained skin care professional.
The skin’s surface is disrupted, cell division occurs which stimulates fibroblast activity leading to collagen production which leads to thicker, firmer skin. Human skin sloughs off at a slower rate with age, so the exfoliation of several layers of the stratum corneum leaves skin fresh and radiant.
Microdermabrasion may be performed to decrease the appearance of superficial hyperpigmentation, photo-damage, diminish fine lines, wrinkles, and shallow acne scars which helps to even out the texture. Removing the dead skin will aid in the penetration of skin care products by up to 50% and make-up will go on much more smoothly.

A facial helps increase circulation and stimulates the skin. It can also help slow down premature aging by custom-targeting your skin care. Facials are a great preventative treatment to help you beat wrinkles before they occur. Keeping your skin hydrated will help keep the skin moist and stop dehydration.
A facial may help you understand the proper skin care products for your skin. Most people are using the wrong products for their skin type; this causes the skin to become sensitized. A good esthetician will work with you to create a home care regime that will be both easy to use and work with your individual skin type. Skin type is determined by pore size, tone, and texture. It is also determined by oil production, called sebum.
