LUNCH TIME FACIAL

 (GLYCOLIC ACID)

Named for the ease and brevity and low-to-no-downtime of this superficial yet medical grade chemical peel.  We offer medical grade Glycolic Acid Peels, which are a type Alpha Hydroxy Acid.  They are naturally derived from sugar cane. Their superficial skin penetration allows for exfoliation of the skin without excessive redness allowing you to return to work or go about your day with radiant skin, which is why we call this our "lunch time facial". Good for acne, aging skin, dehydrated skin, pigment problems and acne.  The treatment takes 25-30 minutes from start to finish.  We start with a gentle cleansing followed by skin analysis to determine the strength of peel.  Once the strength is determined we apply the peel and you will feel a "stingly" feeling.  The peel is left on for about 2-3 minutes and then it is neutralized with buffered water and cool compresses are applied.  After the EltaMD AAComplex Technology Skin Recovery System is applied to help repair, renew, and protect the skin.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Trichloroacetic acid (TCA)?

TCA is a peeling agent that minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.  It can be used at low concentrations for superficial peels such as the Sensi and Ultra Peels, or at higher concentrations for medium depth peels such as the MD Peel.   It is an analog of acetic acid.  TCA breaks down proteins to exfoliate the skin, allowing fresh, youthful-looking cells to rise to the surface.  This triggers a healing response in the skin, stimulating the production of new collagen to minimize fine lines and wrinkles.

What is Lactic Acid?

Lactic Acid is an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) naturally found in milk and sugars.  it releases the desomosomes that hold skin cells together, allowing for easier exfoliation and has a moisturizing effect on skin.  Since it penetrates the skin slowly, it is a more gentle means of exfoliation and reduces the possibility of irritation.It additionally suppresses the formation of tyrosinase which is an enzyme responsible for melanin production. 

What is Emblica?

Emblica a botanical derived from the Malacca tree and is also known as Indian gooseberry. It provides antioxidant protection and improvement in skin discoloration by reducing the cascade formed from the free radical activity and UV exposure.

What is Silymarin?

Silymarin is a powerful antioxidant that provides anti-inflammatory benefits and protects against UVA induced oxidative stress. It reduces the damaging effects of UVB radiation and inhibits photoaging.  It is derived from milk thistle seeds

What is Alpha-lipoic Acid?

Alpha-lipoic acid, also known as thioctic acid, is an antioxidant that has shown promise for melanin suppression, skin rejuvenation, and increased cell turnover.   It is a naturally-occurring compound  that interferes with internal pathways of hyperpigmentation.
