At Opulence Spa, we understand that the age, sun and environmental factors affect only the top layers of your skin and under all that damage is fresh, new skin waiting to emerge. What if you could peel off the outer layers like you would a mask and let the younger, more gorgeous you appear? That’s just what we do with the Henderson chemical peels treatment.
This technique is very effective for removing the discoloration caused by taking medications like birth control pills, or because of pregnancy. Freckles, age spots, specific kinds of acne and mild scars, all respond very well to chemical peels. You will also notice the disappearance of the fine lines around your eyes and mouth, particularly those caused by sun exposure. Chemical peels can also be used on the neck and hands.
The chemical treatments you take with us at our Henderson outpatient center, involve the use of chemicals like carbolic acid (phenol), lactic acid, trichloroacetic acid, salicylic acid, or glycolic acid. This is why it is always advisable to entrust your skin to an expert esthetician like the one at Opulence Spa. When you arrive at our Las Vegas facials center, our experienced consultant will first study your skin carefully and check with you about your expectations from the treatment. Accordingly, the depth of the peel is determined. You could also be asked about the medications and drugs you have been taking; and prior to treatment, you might be asked to avoid them for a while. Do let the esthetician know if you have a history of herpes, cold sores or scarring.
The treatment begins with a cleansing session after which the chemical is carefully applied to small sections of your skin. You are likely to experience some amount of discomfort because the solutions are aimed at causing tiny wounds to encourage the formation of new skin. Later, you might see some amount of redness, after which there could be blistering and then, scaling as the old skin peels off. The effects are very similar to that of sunburn and are likely to last for about a week. Cooling treatments are given to ease the discomfort, and if needed, some painkillers. Depending on the kind of peel you have opted for, you might be asked to take antibiotic or antiviral medication also. Complete recovery from a session can take up to 2 weeks.
Chemical peels are especially effective on people who have light skin and fair hair, while others might see a more uneven skin tone. Post treatment; do remember to stay indoors during the hours when the sun is at its peak like between 10am and 2pm. If you must venture outdoors, wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen that protects you from both UVA and UVB rays. Wearing a broad brimmed hat also helps.
Sounds interesting? It is. And very effective. Once your skin has healed, you will notice that it has a fresh, smooth texture that you will absolutely love. So, call or contact us at Opulence Spa without delay. And try this wonderful rejuvenating Henderson treatment.
