Facials/Chemical Peels/Jelly Masks

Give Your Complexion a Boost

New skin cells regenerate on your face approximately every 30 days. Dead skin cells don’t always slough off; instead they accumulate, creating a dull, dry appearance. Simply washing your face doesn’t always eliminate that outer layer of cells – in fact, this process can actually cause more build-up of dead skin cells if you are using soaps that contain harsh chemicals.

The best way to remove damaged skin cells and allow your healthy, regenerated skin cells to rise to the surface is by having a facial, chemical peel or jelly mask by a licensed esthetician in Aurora. The right treatment will depend on the severity of your skin condition and the types of aesthetic results you wish to achieve.

Facials

There are a variety of facial treatments available to restore a healthy glow to your appearance by removing dead skin cells. A facial massage is also included in the process to not only relax you but also to encourage blood flow to your healthy skin cells. We will first analyze your skin type to determine the best course of treatment. All treatments will include a variation of cleansing, exfoliation, extractions, massage, moisturization, and protection.

We also offer several specialized treatments in Aurora:

  • Vampire facial to promote cell renewal using platelet-rich plasma (PRP)
  • HydraFacial that includes antioxidant protection using super serums
  • Lymphatic drainage facial to reduce facial and neck swelling

Recovery Times & Results for Facials

There is no downtime after a facial. Although your skin may be a bit red, you should be able to return to your normal activities. It is recommended that you have facials every 3-4 weeks to maintain a healthy glow.

Chemical Peels

A chemical peel involves the application of a chemical solution that causes a controlled wound on the face. As the treated skin eventually sloughs off, it reveals the underlying regenerated, smoother skin. There are different strengths of chemical peels, ranging from superficial to deep. The stronger the chemicals used, the longer the skin will take to heal. Although the healing process is longer, deep chemical peels can create a dramatic improvement in your appearance.

Skin Conditions Improved by Chemical Peels

Our chemical peels in Aurora can minimize the appearance of:

  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Age spots
  • Sun damaged skin
  • Scars
  • Acne
  • Freckles
  • Irregular skin color

Our team will analyze your skin to determine what strength of chemical peel could produce your desired results. We can also provide information about the frequency of chemical peels to maintain your appearance. Some patients are able to start with a deep peel and then maintain their skin with superficial peels.

Skin Types for Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are suitable for fair-skinned, light-haired people. Those with darker skin may experience uneven skin tone after a peel.

Recovery Times & Results for Chemical Peels

The recovery process for superficial chemical peels can range from 1-3 days. During this time the skin may peel and look red. Medium and deep peels may result in swelling and blisters that heal over the course of 1-3 weeks. It is important to shield your skin from the sun during the healing process. The results from a chemical peel can last 1-2 months, so we may recommend that you repeat the process every 4-6 weeks to maintain your appearance.
