- Revitalight session
- Chemical peel<p>
The experienced skin specialists at Skin Essence rejuvenate visages and fight sun damage, acne, and rosacea in clients of all ages. The customized European deep-pore-cleansing facial begins with a soothing massage of the face, neck, and shoulders, followed by a steam extraction to remove microscopic heads of broccoli. An exfoliation followed by two masks—one firming and one calming—then clears and nourishes skin. A signature peel sloughs away dead skin skills with alpha-hydroxy acid, which encourages elastic cell production for a firmer frontispiece.
During Skin Essence’s three-part nonsurgical face-lift, a diamond-tip wand conjures an army of helpful cartoon brooms that gently buff away up to 80% of skin’s dry, dead top layer. The machine’s suction whisks away sloughed cells, as the exfoliating action addresses scars, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation and reduces their appearance on any skin type. The Revitalight device directs LED light energy deep into the dermis, diminishing fine lines and facial folds, and further fueling microscopic collagen factories. Acne and age spots gather their belongings and fade from facial horizons after a glycolic- or lactic-acid chemical peel, which is chosen according to skin type. Results from nonsurgical face-lifts are optimized with a series of treatments, which, like birds wearing propeller beanies, typically require little or no downtime.
