Okay, so you’ve been thinking about getting that first facial peel. But, you are gripped with fear. You have images of Samantha of Sex and the City wearing a black veil to cover a blotchy face, the results of botched peel treatment.
But, have no fear! When done right, face peels can work wonders on some of the most frustrating complexion issues, from acne to uneven skin tone.
The biggest misconception about face peels is that they all will leave the skin looking burned and bright. Yes, it is true that a mild to moderate, visible exfoliation is expected after a peel. But, when done by a trained aesthetician like Christina “Cricket” Hemp at Synergy Spa, the fear of having to leave a treatment wearing a veil like Samantha is unwarranted.
How They Work and What They Do
Face peels remove top layers of skin to exfoliate and expedite cell turnover. When new cells are formed, this creates a new layer of skin—one that is fresh and smooth.
Face peels can improve skin’s texture, even skin tone, minimize fine lines, and clear up acne by unclogging pores. One problem they can’t fix, contrary to popular belief: scarring (only lasers can to do that). Another misconception involves treatment for acne. Some people believe a peel causes the skin to overproduce oil and become more acne-prone. This is simply not true.
Like any skin condition, a skin analysis will first be done, and our licensed medical aestheticians on staff at Synergy Spa will then customized the peel to your specific needs.
At Guyer Institute’s Synergy Spa offers PCA (Physicians Choice Arizona) peels. This high-performance peel is the mot effective formula available in the range of moderate exfoliating treatments. A mild peel based on a combination of naturally occurring acids, it helps threat acne and pigment disorders. The inclusion of naturally sourced progesterone hydrates and plumps the skin.
