Get Glowing Peel

An excellent peel to get rid of sun damage, pigmentation and improve tone and texture. Most (but not all) will experience flaking or peeling. The Get Glowing Peel will refine skin texture, smoothing fine lines and evening out skin discolorations. It can be done alone or as series of 3-6 treatments. This is more intense than our typical graded peels. 

What is the Get Glowing Peel?
The Get Glowing Peel is a treatment in which a cream is applied to the skin to encourage the exfoliation of dead skin cells and debris while stimulating the skin’s natural renewal process. The Get Glowing Peel is tailored to fit a client's individual skin type and long-term goals.
 
What results will I see?
The Get Glowing Peel is designed to refine skin texture damaged by environmental factors and skin conditions such as acne. The procedure assists in smoothing fine lines and evening out skin discoloration. It improves skin texture and reduces the appearance of acne scars and environmental damage to the skin. With each additional Peel procedure, you will notice incremental improvements in the overall appearance of the skin.

 
How many treatments do clients need?
For maximum results, we recommend a series of Six Get Glowing Peel procedures in two to six week intervals, depending on the skin type.

 
Will clients experience any downtime?
For approximately one week following the procedure, the skin will undergo a renewal process, lightly shedding its dead outer layer. Depending on the skin, clients may or may not experience peeling. If peeling occurs, it usually begins four to five days following the treatment and lasts for approximately three days. In addition, clients may experience mild itching, dryness and redness.

 
How long does the treatment take?
Clients will need to be in the clinic for about 45 minutes.
 
What are the actives in the GetGlowing Micro-Peel?
The actives are Resorcinol, Kojik Acid and Salicylic acid.
-Resorcinol works by breaking down rough, scaly or hardened skin and is used to treat acne, eczema, psoriasis, seborrhea, photo aging, solar keratoses, epidermal atrophy and improves skin tone and unevenness.
-Kojik Acid works on melanocytes interfering with the production of melanin. It has excellent skin-lightening abilities and is classified as an antioxidant.
-Salicylic Acid is used to treat skin conditions such as psoriasis, acne, oily skin, blackheads and whiteheads. It directly dissolves the keratin plugs to regulate the skins cells acting as an exfoliant. Salicylic acid improves collagen production and thickness of the skin. It has anti-inflammatory properties.
