5 Reasons You Should Consider a Chemical Peel

Posted on May 22, 2018 by Ella Fedonenko

There are many simple things you can do to keep looking beautiful no matter what your age. Chemical peels, for example, have been around since the 1990s, and offer variety of benefits:

  1. Customizable

All chemical peels are not created equal. They are quite versatile and can be customized to fit your needs.

  1. Quick Recovery

The side effects include mild irritation and peeling. That is why it is very important to use a good moisturizer in the days following the treatment.

  1. They Help with Acne and Acne Scars 

The ingredients in chemical peels penetrate deep into the skin, which is why they help prevent acne. They can also help improve the appearance of acne scars.

  1. Smoother Skin

Chemical peels remove dead skin cells and promote new cell turnover. The result is an improved appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and smoother skin texture.

  1. Improved Skin Tone

Chemical peels can significantly improve the appearance of sun spots, creating a more even skin tone.

Versatility of Chemical Peels

Posted on April 5, 2018 by Ella Fedonenko

Chemical peels are one of the most versatile cosmetic tools that can help improve your skin tone and texture. These treatments can supercharge your body’s natural ability to shed dead skin cells and they also stimulate collagen and elastin production.

Lighter peels, such as SkinMedica Illuminize Peel, can give your skin a bright and healthy glow after only one treatment. More intense peels such as SkinMedica Vitalize and Rejuvenize peels require minimal downtime, but they can also improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and sun spots.

Rejuvenize and Vitalize peels contain salicylic acid in its formulation which is a very effective medication for acne.

How many treatments do I need? 

Patients can expect fresher looking skin after just one treatment with a professional grade medical peel.  The effects of the peels are cumulative, and if you are looking for longer term results you should schedule a series of 4 to 5 treatments in order to obtain maximum results. Patients with acne-prone skin can greatly benefit from maintenance chemical peel treatments to clear pores from acne causing debris.

How frequently can I receive chemical peel treatments?

Deeper peels, such as the Rejuvenize peel, can be repeated every 4-6 weeks. Lighter peels, such as the Illuminize peel, can be performed in 2-4 week intervals.

How can I protect my skin after receiving a chemical peel treatment?

The key to a successful chemical peel treatment is to be gentle with your skin while it heals after the procedure. This means limiting sun exposure and wearing a sunscreen that offers a broad spectrum protection. You should also use a gentle skin care regimen that encourages healing for at least week after your procedure. Skin care products containing ceramides will help soothe and hydrate your skin which will speed up the recovery.

Rejuvenate Your Skin with a Chemical Peel

Posted on March 22, 2018 by Ella Fedonenko

Harsh winter weather that we have endured for the past couple of months has most likely left your skin looking duller and flaky. Fortunately, you can quickly rejuvenate your complexion by incorporating various exfoliation methods into your beauty routine.

Exfoliation helps clear the skin of debris, and makes way for a more beautiful and luminous complexion. Chemical peels, an enhanced form of exfoliation, can also dramatically improve the tone and texture of your skin. If you want your skin to look beautiful this spring then chemical peels is your best option to accomplish this goal.

What conditions can chemical peels treat?

Chemical peels can successfully improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, sun spots, and mild acne scars.

Will my skin peel after receiving a chemical peel treatment?

It depends. Patients who have been treated with a light chemical peel should expect to experience little to no visible peeling. Medium or deep peels will result in much heavier flaking of the skin.

How can I help the recovery process?

Please minimize sun exposure for at least a week after the procedure. Your skin will be vulnerable to sun damage during this period and it’s best to be extra cautious while it heals.

Can I peel flaky skin?

Although, it will be tempting to manually peel off flaking skin it is not advisable to do so. We recommend our patients to use SkinMedica’s TNS Ceramide Treatment Cream during their recovery process.  The moisture will help the healing process and it also helps restore skin barrier function.

Three Rejuvenating Treatments to Kick-Start the New Year

Posted on January 24, 2018 by Ella Fedonenko

The new year inspires many of us to improve ourselves. If you are interested in investing in yourself in this upcoming year we have put together a list of treatments that will help you on your journey to looking your best in 2018.

 

Botox and Fillers

Although the new year bell has rung, you can still turn back the clock by incorporating Botox and fillers into your beauty routine. Botox and fillers have been lauded for their remarkable ability to freshen the appearance of your facial features, but each treatment addresses different aspects of the aging process.

 

Botox, for instance, is best used on the expressive lines of the face, which include the forehead, in between the eyebrows, and crow’s feet. The rejuvenating treatment will relax the muscles that create wrinkles and fine lines on the face, and it is powerful enough to soften patient’s faces for a period of three to six months.

 

Dermal fillers, on the other hand, are best used in the areas where we are experiencing volume loss. Restylane is one of the leading brands in the injectable fillers market, and it can correct deep static lines and restore youthfulness to one’s appearance. We have found that Restylane works best to reverse the signs of aging in the nasolabial folds area and around the mouth.

 

Chemical Peels

One of the simplest ways to rejuvenate the skin is through exfoliation. Medical grade chemical peels are highly effective at improving skin texture. Some of our favorite chemical peels on the market today have been created by the renowned professional skincare company called Skinmedica. The Illuminize, Vitalize, and Rejuvenize peels have been expertly designed to create a more uniform complexion. The Rejuvenize and Vitalize peels can also tackle minor skin imperfections such as acne scars and fine lines.

Chemical Peels Can Clear Acne and Reduce Hyperpigmentation

Posted on November 22, 2017 by Ella Fedonenko

Everyone wants beautiful skin that is blemish free, but maintaining a flawless complexion is not an easy task for most people. Fluctuations in stress and hormone levels often trigger negative reactions in our bodies, and the effects can often be seen on the skin in the form of acne and inflammation.

Acne happens when dead skin cells, oily sebum and other debris builds up and block the opening of sebaceous glands. Clogged glands become infected which leads to formation of acne.

Often used over the counter acne products can sometimes exacerbate the problem and leave your skin irritated and hypersensitive. We believe that the best course of action is to seek help from a certified skincare professional who will help you find the best way to treat your particular type of acne.

Medical grade chemical peels for example are some of the more effective acne treatments available.  Superficial chemical peels, such as Skinmedica’s Illuminize Peel, will help remove debris from pores, which will in turn reduce the likelihood of acne formation. This chemical peel gives patients brighter and clearer skin in a matter of days.  Deeper chemical peels can also be used to treat mild to moderate acne scarring and hyperpigmentation. The best times of the year to do chemical peels are fall and winter due to minimal sun exposure during those months.

Age Gracefully with These Two Preventative Treatments

Posted on November 1, 2017 by Ella Fedonenko

As we get older it takes more effort to maintain our appearance. Fortunately, if we choose to take preventative measures to keep our skin healthy and well nourished, we can help ensure we age as gracefully as possible. Here is some helpful information on two of the most powerful anti-aging treatments available only through cosmetic professionals.

Chemical Peels

Many over-the-counter exfoliating treatments often fall short of our expectations. For example, presaturated chemical peel pads available at your local beauty counter are designed with a formula that would be least irritating for the majority of customers and they also use relatively weak acids to avoid potential side effects. Thus, these prepackaged solutions would be well tolerated by most consumers, but it might not be the best option for you given your particular skin type.

An aesthetic medicine professional can create a customized treatment plan that includes chemical peel treatments that are strong enough to actually give real results. We have found that patients who regularly receive chemical peels have much better skin tone and texture compared to those who don’t use this treatment modality. At Your Laser Skin Care, we use Skinmedica chemical peels to effectively treat multiple signs of aging including fine lines, wrinkles, and dark spots.

Laser Skin Resurfacing

Lasers are one of the most powerful anti-aging tools on the market today, and we see great value in starting treatments early on in life. It’s a wonderful preventive treatment because these devices have the ability to stimulate collagen production, which is the driving factor behind maintaining young and beautiful skin. Fractional laser resurfacing is one of the newest methods available to give patients smoother and healthier looking skin, and we have been quite impressed by its ability to correct numerous skin issues related to aging. We have found that The Palomar Starlux 1540 Fractional laser is excellent at improving the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and sun damage.

How to Look Less Tired

Posted on October 27, 2017 by Ella Fedonenko

For many of us daily demands of work, school and family, leave little to no time to adequately take care of ourselves. Sleep becomes a luxury, and more often than not we find ourselves falling short of getting recommended 8 hours of sleep per day. When we forego getting a good night’s rest our bodies suffer greatly, and over it can greatly affect the appearance of our skin. Luckily, there are several cosmetic treatments that help refresh and rejuvenate the skin so that we can look less tired and feel more beautiful.

  1. Chemical Peels

Studies have shown that poor sleeper’s skin looks more aged than their well-rested counterparts. Researchers also found that sleep-deprived women have an impaired ability to protect against environmental aggressors, such as the sun, compared to those who regularly receive better quality sleep. We recommend prioritizing sleep as a natural and cost-effective way to maintain your appearance. Fine lines and uneven pigmentation can also be successfully treated with medical grade chemical peels. The peels available through SkinMedica can brighten your skin and improve its tone and texture.

  1. Eye cream

Skin around your eyes is extremely susceptible to the signs of aging and fatigue. If you aren’t getting enough sleep, this delicate skin region becomes a prominent display for dark under eye circles and a tired and worn out expression. Applying a high-quality eye cream such as TNS Illuminating Eye Cream can help counter the effects of sleep deprivation. This innovative cream can reduce the appearance of fine lines and make your eyes appear brighter and more beautiful.
