SeriouSkin’s aestheticians restore youthful glows to visages with chemical peels and custom skin treatments using PCA skincare products. After a complimentary skin consultation and analysis determine the cheeks’ condition and level of repressed angst from high school, a skincare specialist recommends either a light- to medium-depth chemical peel or a custom skin treatment for each client. Typically, aestheticians recommend a custom skin treatment to attack a specific skin concern, such as acne, wrinkles, or dull smoker’s skin.
The treatment may include a light layer of peel, but it will be a gentler approach than the chemical peel, which is a deep exfoliation that involves applying layers of the chosen peeling agent, neutralizing and sealing it to the face, and removing it along with excess dead skin that refuses to move away from the epidermis. Peels fuse lactic, citric, and salicylic acids to help to reduce wrinkles, eliminate breakouts, and control oil, which ultimately leaves faces more hydrated than a Gatorade-chugging camel. Afterward, clients may notice some minimal pinkness, peeling, or irritation, but recovery time depends on the type of peel and the individual.

Some salons are content to slather faces with a mix of mud and sugar and call it a facial. That’s not the case at SeriouSkin, where aestheticians curate a menu that includes only those treatments and products that have been clinically proven to safely remedy skin issues such as acne, wrinkles, and unwanted hair. The spa’s licensed staff members are all trained masters of their trade, skillfully deploying services that range from laser hair removal and permanent makeup to FDA-approved Bio-Roller micro-needle therapy, which improves the look and feel of skin through use of fast-moving, collagen-stimulating needles filled with inspirational quotes.
Despite its clinical technology, the salon features a softer side, including a brow bar where aestheticians can shape eye awnings with a range of powders, pencils, waxes, and brow mascaras, or enhance lashes with conditioners and extensions. The studio is thoroughly stocked with a wide range of quality products by brands such as PCA Skin, Ayur-Medic, and Jade, and aestheticians are happy to recommend products that can be used at home to enhance any treatment’s effectiveness.
