Chemical peels rejuvenate the skin’s appearance, helping people gain younger, healthier looking skin. While there are those who may initially be uneasy about the idea of minor acids being applied to the face, the chemical peel procedure is incredibly safe. Once the procedure is understood, many people opt for the benefits of chemical peels, free from any of their previous hesitation.
Chemical peels are fairly simple. An acid is applied to the face in order to change the face’s pH balance to between 3.6 and 4.0. This acidic range weakens the bonds between dead and damaged skin cells and the healthier cells beneath them. After these bonds have weakened enough, the dead skin cells are wiped away, allowing newer, healthier skin to grow in its place. Following the procedure, people generally experience minor skin sensitivity for a number of days while their skin recovers.
Although this is the general principle behind chemicals peels, not every chemical peel works exactly the same way. Different acids may be used based on a patient’s skin type, desired outcomes, and the depth of the peel being performed. Some of the most common acids used in a chemical peel include glycolic acid, salicylic acid, lactic acid, and malic acid. Further, the length of time acids remain on the face depends on the desired depth of the peel and the type and concentration of the acid being used.
Chemical peels easily invigorate skin, giving people a natural, glowing complexion. This safe, easy procedure allows everyone to put their best face forward.

Your skin's pores are part of your body's rejuvenation and heat control system. Every hair follicle, sweat gland, and oil gland on your body ends in a pore on your skin's surface. Your pores don't have any muscles controlling them, so it is up to you to take regular care of your skin to avoid the common problem of enlarged pores.
The leading cause of enlarged pores is a build-up of sebum and dirt. While regular cleaning and facial scrubs can help with most skin issues, they can't solve all problems. There is a range of categories of treatments for enlarged pores. We will focus on Chemical Peels, HydraFacial and Laser Skin Peels.
Chemical skin peels can be as basic as applying a scrub with an acidic (lemon juice) or basic (baking soda) pH, and letting it penetrate into your pores, dissolving and liftiing out any material that has caused them to swell. These can be done at home. However, our recommendation is that you contact us before taking any action at home.
HydraFacial is a brand of service that combines alpha hydroxy acids with hydration elements and anti-oxidants. It is the only procedure that integrates cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, and hydration to ensure a complete cleanse and resurfacing of the skin, while shrinking the size of your pores.
For more extreme cases, Laser Skin Peels are an outpatient procedure. A CO2 or Erbium laser is shone into the skin where it removes the top layers of the skin via focused laser light energy. It can also help by simultaneously depigmenting blemishes and removing fine wrinkles and very light scars.
It is important to remember that everyone's skin is different, and not all procedures will be effective for everyone. Contact us for your free skin consultation today at 913-535-8916 to determine the best course of action to treat your enlarged pores.
Most people view facials as an occasional luxury, though they may not realize the many tangible benefits this treatment can provide. A facial increases circulation and stimulates your skin. When an AesthetiCare skincare professional massages your face, it causes your facial muscles to relax, slowing the onset of facial wrinkles. The regeneration of skin cells is also encouraged by this process, which can minimize puffiness and sagging.
Professionally administered facials include deep cleansing and exfoliation, which help your skin fight off any blemishes as it unclogs pores. Your AesthetiCare aesthetician may also apply a masque specifically suited to your needs to calm, hydrate and tone your skin.
Some facials even provide unexpected health benefits. Antioxidant facials can remove pollutants from the skin via nutrients like vitamins A and E. Collagen facials utilize deep pore cleansing and lymphatic draining massage techniques. These actions prevent wrinkles and reduce the occurrence of dark circles. Antioxidant facials also encourage your body to rid itself of dangerous environmental toxins.
Aromatherapy facials utilize essential oils to relax your body, regenerate your skin and improve its overall function, while gold facials encourage lymphatic drainage and improve skin's elasticity and smoothness. Galvanic facials feature a widget called a galvanic tool that combats skin congestion and helps your skin remain adequately hydrated.
Indulging in regular facials can stabilize your immune system, aid in the excretion of unwanted bodily toxins and provide a sure-fire method of stress relief. Facials are no longer considered the occasional treat, but rather an integral part of a complete healthcare regimen. Contact us today at (913) 535-8916 to being your regimen.
