What is the downtime for a Chemical Peel? What will my face look like?
We've all seen the pictures around the internet of red, raw and very painful looking after effects of chemical peels. Truth is there is little to no downtime and most people will not even be able to tell you have had a peel!
What will an Enzyme or Chemical Peel feel like when applied?
Everyone is different! While some people will feel a slight to moderate tingle, most clients will feel little to no discomfort. Your esthetician will evaluate your sensitivity prior to the peel which allows them to keep you comfortable during the application process. The Blueberry, Pomegrante and Pumphin-Orange Enzyme Peels have a slightly higher tingle or heat factor. If at any point in time your sensitivity level goes above the discussed level between you and your esthetician, let them know immediately and they will take measures to decrease the sensitivity and bring you back to a comfortable level.
What is the aftercare for an Enzyme or Chemical Peel?
Our esthetician is fully trained and certified in chemical peels. Although we take every precaution to avoid unfavorable effects or results, on rare cases the may still happen. That's why it is very important and we highly advise you to be as truthful and transparent on your client intake form as possible. Certain conditions and medication greatly affect the outcome of the chemical peel.
Should I schedule an Enzyme Peel or Chemical Peel? What is the difference?
Both Enzyme Peels and Chemical Peels are forms of chemical exfoliation that break down dead skin cells to reveal healthy skin underneath. Enzymes are typically found in plants and fruits and provide a very superficial peel to the outermost layers of the epidermis. Chemical Peels are made of acids derived from sources like sugar, milk, almond and apple and may penetrate into the deeper layers of the epidermis for a more aggressive exfoliation. Typically Enzymes do not produce any peeling, with the exception of the Pumpkin-Orange peel. Chemical Peels may cause flaking after the procedure. (It is very important that you let us know on your client intake form of any allergies you may have as some products may cause a reaction)
I have been on Accutane or Isotrenoin. Can I schedule a peel?
You must stop using these medications at least 6 months before the skin is able to handle a peel. Performing a peel while on these medications will cause more damage and harm due to the thinning of the skin from the medication.
Why are my dark spots getting darker after my Chemical Peel?
Chemical peels are frequently used for hyperpigmentation in areas of the skin. The peels will gradually remove the surface layers of skin and bring the pigmentation to the surface of the skin which results in the areas appearing darker. Once the pigmentation is brought to the surface, it will start to lighten with each subsequent peel session as it is removed with the surface layers of the skin. It is a gentle and progressive approach instead of an aggressive approach which will keep inflammation to a minimum and provide excellent results with less damage and discomfort to your skin.
Which type of Chemical Peels do you use?
We use PCA Skin Chemical Peels which are a unique blend of acids that self-neutralize due to the lipid and water content within the skin. They are safe for all Fitzpatrick skin types and sensitive skin. We use Modified Jessner's solution and Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) depending on skin type and skin concerns. Your esthetician will evaluate your client intake form and perform a skin analysis to determine which peel is best for you to achieve your goals.
What is an Oxygen Infusion Facial?
An Oxygen Infusion Facial is an excellent way to revitalize the skin. It nourishes and promotes collagen production and growth. A highly concentrated air stream of oxygen is applied to the skin after hyaluronic acid serum to improve blood circulation giving the skin a plump, youthful glow.
What is Hydrodermabrasion?
Hydrodermabrasion is a hydrating exfoliation of the skin with the use of a device. A jet of water and vaccuum pressure is applied with the use of solutions to peel away dead cells on the surface of the skin. It helps to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, large pores and hyperpigmentation over time while leaving your skin soft and supple.
What is Dermaplaning? What is the difference between Dermaplane and Dermaplane Deluxe?
Dermaplaning is a form of exfoliation using a sterile surgical scalpel to remove vellus hair, or peach fuzz, and dead skin cells on the surface of the skin. The skin is cleansed and prepped before planing and followed by a hydrating facial mask, moisturizer and sunprotection. An enzyme mask and hydrojelly mask are included in the Dermaplane Deluxe service to enhance the level of exfoliation and restore the skin's moisture to reveal a healthy glow.
How long does my hair need to be?
Hair needs to be 1/4 inch long but no longer that 1/2 inch long. Shorter hair growth will not be grabbed by the wax and longer hair growth results in a more uncomfortable experience.

What is the aftercare for waxing?
It is very important to keep the waxed area clean, avoid heat and friction for the first 24-48 hours.
What type of wax do you use?
We use both soft wax and hard wax. Soft wax, or strip wax, is applied to the skin then pressed with a paper strip to be removed. Soft wax adheres to the hair and skin and is for all parts of the face and body, especially larger areas. Hard wax is applied to the skin and hardens to be removed. Hard wax is a great option for anyone with sensitive skin because it adheres to the hair and not the skin. A patch test is always recommended for anyone with sensitive skin.
What is a Lash Lift? Should I get them tinted at the same time?
A Lash Lift is a much like a perm but uses solutions that are safe for the eye area. It lifts and curls the natural lash from root to tip and gives an eye opening appearance. The esthetician adheres the lashes to a silicone rod then applies lifting and setting solutions to set the curl. A lash tint service is often paired with a lash lift to enhance and make the lashes stand out more!
How long does a Lash Lift last?
A lash lift will typically last for the duration of your personal lash growth cycle which is 4-6 weeks. Naturally heavy or thick lashes may slightly relax due to the weight of the lashes. Using products recommended by your esthetician will ensure the longevity of the results.
What is the aftercare for a Lash Lift and/or Tint?
Your esthetician will recommend at home treatments to help keep lashes conditioned and nourished between lifts. Lash lifts are recommended every 4-6 weeks.
