Chemical Peels

Chemical Peels

How Long is the Procedure and How Does It Feel?

Generally a chemical peel takes 30-45 minutes. During the procedure, you will feel a warmth and tingling sensation over the area being treated.  You may feel stinging, burning, and even itching and can vary from mild to intense, depending on the type of peel being performed. The esthetician performing the peel will either fan the area being peeled or provide you with fan to ease any discomfort. All sensations will stop once the acids are neutralized.

Reasons to get a Chemical Peel
A chemical peel will:

  1. Improve the texture of your skin

  2. Increase the cell turnover rate of your skin

  3. Improve your skin’s ability to hold moisture

  4. Help your skin produce more collagen

  5. Reduce fine lines

  6. Decrease hyperpigmentation

  7. Unclog pores and help clear up acne

  8. Leave your skin smooth

  9. Make your skin softer

  10. Make your skin look more even-toned

  11. Give you a “glow”

  12. Make your skin look dewy

  13. Improve minor scarring

Who Can Get a Chemical Peel?

Almost anyone can get a peel as long as they don’t have any of the exceptions listed below.  Generally people with darker skin need to take more precautions before getting a peel and must make sure that the peel they are receiving is formulated for their skin type and done by an experienced, licensed professional.  The reason for this is that very strong chemical peels can actually cause more hyperpigmentation on darker skin if done improperly.

DO NOT GET A PEEL IF YOU ARE:

  • Pregnant and nursing. Women not receive peels since there are no studies, as of yet, about the effects of peels on fetuses or nursing babies.

  • If you have taken or have just gotten off of Accutane within the last 6 months.

  • If you are prone to cold sores a peel can actually bring on an outbreak so you need to take anti-viral medication before, the day of, and the day after your treatment.

  • If you have a tendency to scar, are taking antibiotics, have cancer or an autoimmune disease, or have an open sore you cannot get a chemical peel.

How Does The Esthetician Know What Type of Peel I Need?

Before you get a peel you will have a complimentary skincare consultation with your esthetician so she can answer all of your questions and provide you with the proper pre-peel regimen (so your skin in properly prepped for the day of the treatment).

Before your peel, you will also need to fill out a skincare and history questionnaire which accesses your skin type, medical conditions, allergies, the products you are currently using, and the results you want to achieve.  An esthetician must keep many factors in mind before performing a peel so that the client gets the best possible result with the fewest possible side effects.

If you are new to peels, it is highly recommended that you start with a lighter peel the first time you get a chemical peel and build up the strength of your peels from there.  All of these issues should be discussed with your esthetician before you receive your first peel.

After Chemical Peel Instructions:

  • Immediately following peel, take extra precaution to guard against exposure to sun. This means 30 SPF applied consistently throughout the day and a large brimmed hat (not a visor or baseball cap). REAPPLY, REAPPLY, REAPPLY.
  • First night, do not wash face at all.
  • Days 2 through 6, avoid hard cleansers, Retin-A, AHAs, or Benzoyl Peroxide. Wash twice daily with a gentle cleanser.
  • Please do not exfoliate using any scrubs, cleansing brushes, washcloths, or acid/enzyme based products for 8-13 days; longer if done on body.
  • PAT. DO NOT RUB. This applies to drying the skin or putting product onto the skin.
  • Apply a light moisturizer or serum after cleansing and throughout the day, if needed. Do not OVER moisturize. While the skin does need to be kept moist to prevent cracking or crusting, we must remember the purpose of the chemical peel is to peel.
  • DO NOT PICK OR PULL THE SKIN, as scarring and hypopigmentation (white spots) can occur.
  • It is safe to wear makeup 24 hours after application, but I do not recommend until after flaking has stopped. If you had a more aggressive peel (TCA/Jessner), avoid makeup for the first week.
  • Avoid strenuous exercise or activity for the first 48 hours. Yes, this can include sexual activity.
  • Do not get any other facial treatments/procedures for at least one week after peel or until flaking stops.
  • Discontinue the use of Retinol or Retin-A products for a week after treatment.
  • Do not have electrolysis, facial injections, facial waxing, or use depilatories for approximately two weeks after treatment.
  • ABSOLUTELY do not go to a tanning booth for at least 4-6 weeks after a treatment.

* Everyone will not experience peeling of their facial skin. However, this is not an indication that the peel was ineffective. If peeling does not occur please know that you are still receiving all the benefits of the peel, such as: stimulation of collagen production, improvement of skin tone and texture, and diminished fine lines and pigmentation.

How often can I do ultrasonic peeling?

The frequency of procedures is appointed by a beautician individually. Usually it starts out with a series of sessions: at least 6 at intervals of 1-2 weeks. After that, ultrasonic cleaning of the face can be done once every 2 months.

You can do the IPL after ultrasonic peeling?

Since both procedures — stress for the skin, the interval between them must be at least 2 weeks in order to avoid complications with the skin.

Why choose chemical peels or ultrasonic cleaning?

Chemical peels, despite their high efficiency, has one significant drawback: it is traumatic and can leave behind a burn, not only the superficial but the deep layer of the dermis. If you have serious skin problems that cannot be solved by other methods, it’s worth the risk and give preference to chemistry.

Dermaplaning

DERMAPLANING

WHAT IS IT?

 

Dermaplaning is a safe (provided the person performing it is properly trained) and highly effective physical exfoliation procedure. It requires the use of a sterile, surgical scalpel to gently “shave” the skin’s surface, removing the top-most layer of dead skin along with fine, vellus hair (aka peach fuzz)

Dermaplaning is a favorite in the entertainment industry, specifically among models and actresses. Why? It also eliminates that annoying peach fuzz that cakes up in makeup and can be enhanced by harsh production lighting and high-definition cameras. Dermaplaning removes all the dead skin cells and also the facial hair, leaving the surface very smooth. Dermaplaning also allows for greater penetration of skincare products and creates a flawless canvas for makeup to glide on smoothly. In fact, cosmetic dermatologists often use dermaplaning to help prepare skin for more intrusive procedures such as laser treatments and chemical peels.

Wondering if you should try dermaplaning versus microdermabrasion? They are both forms of physical exfoliation, but the methods are very different. Microdermabrasion sands and suctions dead skin cells, which also helps to uproot clogged pores around the nose, mouth and chin. Dermaplaning safely scrapes off the top layer of skin, so it is well suited for drier skin types and anyone who wants to get rid of peach fuzz. But, keep in mind, both methods are good for almost everyone and it could just boil down to your personal preference.

  • WHO IS IT FOR?

    Dermaplaning is recommended for all skin types except those with acneic skin. If you have deep cystic acne, wait until breakouts are clear before trying this treatment. As always, also discuss any allergies or skin sensitivities before starting a treatment.

    This is a great treatment if you are pregnant or nursing and want exfoliation without the risk of harsh chemicals absorbing into the blood stream and potentially harming your baby.

  • WHAT DOES THE TREATMENT FEEL LIKE?

    Dermaplaning is a painless procedure and can be compared to the sensation of shaving your legs, but in this case, it’s on your face.

    First, the aesthetician will cleanse and thoroughly dry your skin. Next, she’ll pull an area of your skin taut with one hand, and hold a sterile 10 gauge blade at a 45 degree angle in the other hand and use short, swift strokes to scrape off dead skin cells and peach fuzz.

  • HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?

  • About 30 minutes

  • ARE THERE IMMEDIATE SIDE EFFECTS?

    There are no side effects and zero downtime. But facial Shaving,Waxing is not permitted for 72 hours. After the treatment, your skin will be highly sensitive to sun exposure and may already look very pink, so be sure to wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher to reduce the risk of hyper-pigmentation.

  • WHAT ARE ANTICIPATED RESULTS?

    You’ll immediately look more radiant with a more even skin tone and texture. All of your peach fuzz will be gone, which is why first-timers say their skin has never felt so soft before.

  • RECOMMENDED COURSE FOR OPTIMAL RESULTS?

    Dermaplaning removes 21 days worth of dead skin cells, so it’s best to allow the skin to complete its rejuvenation cycle before your next treatment

  • WHO SHOULD GIVE ME THIS TREATMENT?

    Dermaplaning should be administered by a board certified dermatologist or licensed aesthetician. At AliciaDion Beauty, services are always performed by a licensed Esthetician.

  • HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

    $80 to $100 at ALICIADION BEAUTY, DERMAPLANING IS PRICED Reasonably.

  • We’re stating the obvious, but don’t make any sudden movements while the aesthetician is scraping your face.

  • If you have resilient skin, try coupling a Checmical peel and Dermaplaning in the same session for incredible results.

    Many women are often concerned that shaving peach fuzz will make it grow back heavier and darker, but that’s just an old wives’ tale. Superficial vellus hair (that’s the science-y name for clear or white soft fine facial hair) will grow back at the same rate and with the same texture as it was before the treatment.
