Enhanced Exfoliating Treatments

Mechanical – Enzyme – Chemical

211990-attachment

Exfoliation is the removal of the  dead often dehydrated skin cells that cling to the skin’s outermost surface, or epidermis.  When done correctly, exfoliation leaves the skin feeling softer, looking smoother and feeling refreshed.  Exfoliation is important in order for the skins renewal process to most effectively take place as well as to help maximize product absorption.  There are 3 type of exfoliation Mechanical (microderm, dermaplane, scrubs) where the dead skin is scraped, sucked or rolled off;  Enzyme (fruit enzyme masks and peels) where the dead skin is “eaten” or dissolved by the enzymes; and Chemical (chemical peels) where the dead skin is encouraged to “peel” off through a controlled resurfacing/burning of the skin. Generally it is recommended to exfoliate (either mechanical or enzyme) at least once a week at home and to receive a professional treatment from your esthetician once a month.

Microdermabrasion

Express Service $55 – As an Upgrade to a facial service $40

Help regenerate new skin cells while exfoliating away dead dry skin!  Microdermabrasion (Micro, Microderm) helps stimulate  cellular turnover at the dermis and epidermis levels in a safe controlled manner. This approach respects the integrity of the skin and promotes even healing and helps maintain an even cellular growth on the surface of the skin, helping to add a youthful glow to the skin.  Microdermabrasion has been used to treat aging and sun-damaged skin, some types of acne and acne scarring, altered pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, and stretch marks. Results may include improved skin tone, fewer breakouts, diminished appearance of scars, even skin color, refined skin pores, renewed elasticity, and a healthy glow.

Dermaplane

Express Service $65 – As an Upgrade to a facial service $50

Dermaplaning is a form of manual exfoliation similar in theory to microdermabrasion but without the use of suction or abrasive crystals. An esthetician grade, sterile blade is stroked along the skin at an angle to gently “shave off” dead skin cells from the epidermis. Dermaplaning also temporarily removes the fine vellus (:peach fuzz) hair of the face, leaving a very smooth surface allowing for maximum product absorption. Dermaplane helps reduce the appearance of fine lines, evens skin tone and assists in reducing milia, closed and open comedones, and minor breakouts associated with congested pores.

Dermaplaning can be an effective exfoliation method for clients that have couperose (tiny blood vessels near the surface of the skin), sensitive skin or allergies that prevent the use of microdermabrasion or chemical peels.

Due to the contours of the face, certain areas of the face (such as the eyelids and nose) are not treatable using this method.

Chemical Peels

This service is an advanced service and has prerequisites prior to performing service.

Lighten, brighten, tighten, tone, exfoliate, resurface and rejuvenate your skin!  Image Chemical Peels are blends of organic ingredients combined with pharmaceutical grade active ingredients resulting in resurfacing and restoring the skin with medical effectiveness!  Chemical peels are typically performed as a series to maximize results.  They can be done as individual peels if a series is not desirable or if you simply need a pick me up peel!  Chemical peels are a progressive treatment; meaning I start everyone with a Serene Signature Facelift prior to starting peels.  Your first Chemical Peel at Serene Dreams Esthetics will always be a Level 1, even if you have done peels before.  Once I see how the skin has handled the Level 1, we can discuss progressing on to a Level 2 and 3!  With Chemical Peels, be prepared to feel tight and shiny for a day or two followed by 2-4 days of “peeling” or flaking of the skin.  Image Skin Care Prevention + is mandatory on a daily basis after a peel to help protect the integrity of the skin.  Please avoid sun exposure, heat, exercise and alcohol consumption and all RetinA, Retinol, and prescription topical medications for 48-72 hours post peel.  Any recent sunburn, advanced treatment from another spa, Retinol or prescription topical medication use, cold soars or other lesions of the skin are considered contraindications and all peel service will be postponed!
