Peels & Facials

Introduction To Peels & Facials

To enhance your natural beauty and rejuvenate your skin, peels and facials offer personalized care that address your unique skin needs. Peels and facials can address problem areas with fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, and skin discoloration and provide much-needed skin solutions. For decades, these procedures have been utilized to revitalize skin, revealing a more youthful-looking, clearer, and more radiant complexion.
At Jewel Med Spa, you can experience customized peels and facials performed by highly skilled experts, accommodating every type of skin condition. Whether choosing a relaxing facial or an invigorating peel, the goal remains the same: to reveal your natural beauty and leave you with skin that radiates health and vitality.

What Are Peels & Facials?

Peels and facials are essential components of a comprehensive skin care regimen. Facials are more than just pampering sessions; they are treatments that maintain the health of the skin. Meanwhile, peels (also known as chemical peels) are skin-resurfacing treatments that will eventually reveal a newer, younger-looking layer of skin.
The depth of treatment varies too. Facials are more superficial, while peels can be superficial, medium or deep depending on the strength of the applied chemical solution. Facials can be customized to suit your specific skin type, whereas peels have a more targeted approach. Facials primarily tackle superficial issues such as dryness, dullness, and minor blemishes. The treatments address them through hydration and mild exfoliation.
Peels specifically target issues like discoloration, scarring, and acne with chemical exfoliation. Peels offer more noticeable and long-lasting results, making them ideal for advanced skin problems or signs of aging. You may also combine peels and facials for consistent skin care maintenance, keeping your skin healthy with a more natural glow.

How Do Peels & Facials Work?

Both peels and facials should be performed by highly trained professionals who understand your unique skin type and needs. Let’s explore how peels and facials work to enhance your skin:

Facials: These begin with a thorough cleansing of the skin. The aesthetician removes makeup, dirt, and impurities to create a clean canvas.

Peels: During a peel, a chemical solution (such as trichloroacetic acid or TCA) is applied to the skin.

Facials: A gentle exfoliation takes place. This step removes dead skin cells, promoting a smoother texture and allowing better absorption of products.

Peels: A chemical exfoliation happens for the skin resurfacing to take effect. The applied chemical solution on the skin breaks down the bonds between dead skin cells without scrubbing. As the top layer is peeled off, fresh skin underneath is revealed.

Facials: After a facial massage to improve blood circulation and relax facial muscles, a mask is applied to hydrate, soothe or address specific skin issues such as acne. The final step involves applying serums, moisturizers, or sunscreens to nourish and protect the skin.

Peels: After a peel, the skin may be red and sensitive. You’ll be advised to use a non-comedogenic moisturizer to lock in moisture and reduce the chance of infection. Use a gentle yet heavy-duty sunscreen to protect from harsh UV rays as well.

Here at Jewel Med Spa, we will personalize facial and peel treatments according to your skin condition and needs.

This personalized skin treatment addresses specific skin concerns. Here’s what you can expect from this rejuvenating experience:

  • Deep Cleansing and Exfoliation: The facial includes a deep cleansing process to remove impurities and prepare your skin. Proper exfoliation also ensures a fresh face for the subsequent steps.
  • Pore Detox Steam Session: You’ll enjoy a pore-detoxifying steam session, which includes pain-free extractions. This step helps unclog pores and promotes clearer skin.
  • Indulgent Massage and Mask Application: You’ll experience facial and scalp massage. This relieves stress and tension, leaving you relaxed and refreshed.
  • Customized Product Application: At Jewel Med Spa, we utilize a combination of high-quality skin care products, such as serums, oils, and moisturizers. Other techniques and technology may also be incorporated into the facial treatment for optimal results.

Peels can be administered on the skin depending on the chemical peel strength. Superficial peels target the outermost layer of the skin to improve its texture. Medium peels penetrate more deeply to significantly address hyperpigmentation, fine lines, and acne scars. Lastly, deep peels are recommended for severe issues such as wrinkles and sun damage.

Jewel Med Spa offers superficial, medium and deep peels:

  • Perfect Derma Phenol Peel: Also known as the “chemical facelift,” this is a powerful chemical peel designed to rejuvenate and improve the skin’s appearance, specifically targeting sun damage, acne, and especially wrinkles. It contains a blend of antioxidants, acids, and skin-renewing agents for a refreshed and radiant complexion:

    1. Glutathione: An antioxidant that helps brighten the skin and reduce pigmentation.
    2. Kojic Acid: Used for its skin lightening properties.
    3. TCA: Trichloroacetic acid is a chemical exfoliant that promotes skin renewal.
    4. Phenol: Used for its numbing effect during application.
    5. Salicylic Acid: Helps to unclog pores and improve acne-prone skin.
    6. Vitamin C: An antioxidant that promotes collagen production.
    7. Retinoic Acid: A type of Vitamin A that enhances skin texture and reduces wrinkles.

 

  • TCA Peels: This involves applying TCA to the skin, typically on the face, neck, hands, or other body parts. By chemically exfoliating the top layer of the skin, this treatment improves skin texture and treats various issues such as fine lines, hyperpigmentation, acne scars, and sun damage. As keratin in the skin breaks down, the topy layer of skin lightens in color and peels away, revealing healthier and smoother skin.

    Jewel Med Spa offers these types of TCA peels with varying concentrations:


    1. TCA Peel 20% – This medium-strength chemical peel is commonly used to reduce the appearance of fine lines, improve sun-damaged skin, minimize acne or minor scars, and enhance overall skin tone and texture.
    2. TCA Peel 40% – A medium-depth chemical peel like this can significantly improve skin texture and address various skin concerns, including hyperpigmentation, discoloration, uneven skin texture, freckles, acne scars, and sun damage.
