Our skin naturally sheds dead skin cells and creates new ones to replace them. Cell turnover is important because when the new cells are born, collagen is produced. Collagen, a protein, bonds skin cells together and keeps the skin firm. As we age, cell turnover is greatly reduced and the collagen levels in our skin are greatly diminished. As well, the collagen in mature skin is not as flexible. Brittle and broken collagen bonds contribute to sagging skin and wrinkles.
There are many strategies to help the skin to shed old skin cells and promote cell regeneration. Exfoliating treatments ranging from daily scrubs to laser peels will all do the job of keeping our skin fresh and healthy. Mature skin and young skin alike benefit from exfoliation.
Chemical peels are an effective way to smooth a rough skin texture, promote an even skin tone, reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles and rejuvenate the skin.
About Face and Body Laser and Wellness Clinic offers many options of exfoliating and rejuvenating the skin, including chemical peels. The peels that we offer are medical grade and highly effective at breaking down surface buildup on the skin and offer several types of acids (such as alpha and beta hydroxy acids, salicylic acid and resorcinol) and active ingredients (retinoids, antioxidants and polyphenols). Customized treatments according to your skin type and condition will lead to a more beautiful complexion and improve your skin function.
This month, we are offering a beautiful pumpkin enzyme peel with any cleansing facial. This mild but very active peel will leave your skin feeling fresh and smooth!
