Chemical peels work by inducing accelerated exfoliation or causing a controlled injury to the top layers of the skin. The resulting healing process induces deposition of collagen, thickening of the skin, and repair of sun-damaged skin. With certain peels, oil gland production can also be reduced, making it a great option to complement any acne or anti-aging regimen.
In microdermabrasion, tiny crystals are sprayed onto your skin to gently remove the outer layer of skin. Microdermabrasion exfoliates the epidermis at varying depths in a safe, controlled manner. This approach respects the integrity of skin and promotes even healing. Maintaining level cellular growth on the surface aids in the youthfulness of the skin’s appearance. Or your skin care professional at Aurora Medical Spa might suggest combining a microdermabrasion with a chemical peel, known as our Diamond Medical Microdermabrasion treatment.
Clarisonic Smart Profile:
Exfoliation involves the removal of the oldest dead skin cells on the skin’s outermost surface. Exfoliation is involved in the process of all facials, microdermabrasion and chemical peels at Aurora Medical Spa. Exfoliation can be achieved through mechanical or chemical means.
Skin trauma is good, but not if it’s constantly. You do not want to exfoliate to the point of destroying healthy, living cells. When you give the skin trauma, the skin goes into repair mode and stimulates cellular regeneration. This can be very beneficial to the skin, but if you create trauma too often by over-exfoliating, then it’s continually setting up a cascade of free radical damage that triggers premature aging. This is the last thing that any skin needs that wants to stay looking young. Your skin likes boosts (a little wake up call), just not all the time. Ask a skin care professional at Aurora Med Spa for advice on exfoliation, the products listed and to schedule any of the treatments. Exfoliation is a necessary stage of a beauty routine if you want the best looking skin.
