Chemical peels can be performed at various depths to achive a variety of desired results. Typically a deeper peel involves more peeling, for a longer period of time and result in more correction. Although deeper peels may be needed to address specific concerns, light peels have their place too. Extremely superficial peels, do not require any down time, and there is generally not any actual peeling skin. Light peels work by excelerating skin cell turn over in the upper most layer of the skin and are typically well tolerated, even by those with very sensitive skin. Superficial peels smooth skin texture, reduce congested pores to clarify skin and brighten dull sallow skin.
The Epionce “Lite Peel:Refresh”, designed by the well respected dermatologist, Carl R. Thornfeldt, M.D., is gentle enough for almost all skin types, including those with rosacea, acne, hyper pigmentation, sensitive skin even peri-oral dermatitis. The Epionce Refresh peel is unique with its key ingredient being Malic Acid, an AHA that not only increases skin cell turnover, it enhances hydration and reduces surface bacteria. Willow bark is a key botanical in the Refresh peel, that is anti-bacterial, reduces inflammation and improves skin clarity. This lunch time peel is also formulated with a little Salicylic acid to boost penetration and further enhance results. Onion bulb extract has anti-inflammatory properties and is added to sooth and calm skin. The Refresh peel may be repeated as often as every 2 weeks in a series of 3-6 peels, or it may be combined with other in-office treatments to enhance results.
Want Cleaner Pores?
It seems as if everyone that walks into the clinic is concerned with clogged pores. There is only so much a skin profesional can do when we only treat your skin every 4 weeks for a one or two hour treatment, espesially if you don’t want to look completly beat up. I always recomend that clients maintain their skin at home with proper cleansing and exfoliating between profesional treatments. You can exfoliate daily with topical products that contain AHA’s and use your Clarisonic cleansing brush daily.
Clarisonic designed a deep pore cleansing brush head that can be used with any of the Clarisonic brushes. If you are not yet familiar with the Clarisonic Skin Cleansing System, it is a cleansing brush that uses sonic frequency of more than 300 movements per second to gently, yet thoroughly remove 6X more makeup and 2X more dirt and oil than cleansing with your hands alone. Other cleansing brushes that simply rotate do not work the same way the same way as Clarisonic’s brush does with it’s oscillating bristles.
As if the sonic frequency, oscillating movement wasn’t impressive enough the Deep Pore Cleansing Brush Head uses an advanced dual-action motion to clean hard-to-reach areas. There are several brush head options that can be used with your Clarisonic, the Deep Pore brush head is recognised by it’s blue inner bristles. The Deep Pore brush head is ideal for oily and acne prone skin, however anyone who is concerned with cleaning the pores can also use it. If you have large pores, then this is an absolute skin must have! The brush head will run you around $25. each and it is recommended that you replace brush heads every 3-4 months. The Clarisonic Sonic Cleansing Brush is $195. and comes with a starter brush head.
