The Chemical Peel Perfected

chemical peel

Brrr, winter is coming: its the perfect time for a chemical peel!

If you are a Game of Thrones fan, that means you might die. Fortunately for you, it simply means that this is a REALLY GOOD time to consider a chemical peel. Why is that you ask? As we enter the shortest and darkest days of the year, as well as the coldest, it is probable that you are not going to be in the sun nearly as much as you were this summer. In other words, it’s a great time to do some damage control on what may have transpired over the summer. I know what you are thinking, do I really want to look like Samantha from Sex and the City in the infamous chemical peel episode??? This is NOTHING like that. In fact, you will probably look like all those aging celebrities that you are wondering what they do to have such amazing skin. What are they doing? PEELS is what! Okay and a little botox and plastic surgery but we’re talking about peels right now, so I’m going to stick to the benefits of peels.

Chemical peels give you that glow!

Vasu’s peels are state of the art peels that work on the surface to stimulate collagen production, smooth and even out skin tone, reduce hyper-pigmentation and overall anti-aging. Does it sound too good to be true? It’s absolutely been my experience. People often ask about my skin and what I do. Honestly, peels have been my number one anti-aging go-to. I was terrified at first, having the Samantha Jones visual in my head and now I am writing this post because I am such a believer. Want a pick me up? Get a peel. Want smoother skin? Get a peel. Want to stimulate collagen production? Get a peel asap. It’s that good! In fact, get a few. It’s the best bang for your buck, non-evasive single best thing you can do for your skin. And trust me, coming from someone who is officially middle age…you are going to want that collagen. (Nan Gentry, November 2015)

Micro-Needling: Translation, Please…

Wondering what “Micro-Needling” is? Here’s what you need to know: Micro-Needling (also known as Collagen Induction Therapy) treats fine lines, wrinkles, hyper-pigmentation, acne scars, stretch marks and improves your skin’s texture, tone and color. Micro-needling creates softer, and younger skin with minimal cost and downtime compared to invasive lasers.

HOW IS THE PROCEDURE PERFORMED?
The application of numbing cream provides comfort before each treatment. Twelve tiny, sterile needles create controlled micro-injuries to the skin to stimulate collagen production. Each treatment is customized by selecting the appropriate needle depth for each client’s unique and specific skin care needs. The procedure creates micro-channels to allow for increased penetration of anti-aging serums, peptides or creams into deeper areas of the skin.

WHAT WILL I LOOK LIKE AFTER THE TREATMENT?
Your skin appears as if you have a sunburn and it may feel hot and tight. Your face may look a little red the following morning in which a tinted moisturizer may be applied. At Vasu Skin Solutions, we recommend applying Intellishade by Revision Skincare (http://www.revisionskincare.com/products/intellishade-broad-spectrum-spf-45). Typically, the redness subsides within 48 hours. You may have some flaking on day 3.

HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE REQUIRED?
3-4 treatments are recommended spaced 6 weeks apart for optimal results. Clients may benefit from annual maintenance with one treatment.

WHAT IS THE ECLIPSE MICRO-PEN?What is the Eclipse MicroPen?
The Eclipse MicroPen (www.eclipsemicropen.com) is Vasu’s trademarked device for performing Micro-Needling treatments. The Eclipse MicroPen is state-of-the-art, fast and extremely sterile offering single use 12 gauge tips.

WHY CHOOSE MICRONEEDLING?
Micro-needling is safe, predictable and allows your skin to naturally repair itself by inducing your body to produce more collagen in the treated area. Micro-needling is non-ablative and keeps the epidermis intact which reduces the risk of scarring, and unwanted pigment change. Micro-Needling is for most skin types and is a safe treatment during the summer. Micro-needling is not recommended for clients with active acne. Both men and women benefit from this treatment!

At Vasu Skin Solutions, we only offer treatments that we believe in 100%. Micro-needling is effective, affordable and offers comparable results to invasive lasers! Schedule your free consultation today!
