Facials and Chemical Peels Q & A

What is a HydraFacial?

One of the most popular services at Vintage Wellness, the HydraFacial is a three-step facial that takes about 30 minutes and gives you immediate and visible results.

The first step includes cleaning and exfoliating your face to reveal a fresh layer of healthy skin. Next, your Vintage Wellness provider gently removes dirt and dead skin cells from your pores, and then hydrates and moisturizes your skin. During the final step of the HydraFacial, they saturate the surface of your skin with antioxidants and peptides to leave your face glowing and luminous.

HydraFacial is appropriate for all skin types and addresses a variety of skin problems:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Elasticity and firmness
  • Tone and vibrancy
  • Texture
  • Brown spots
  • Oily skin
  • Enlarged pores

What are the benefits of doing LED light therapy with facials?

To achieve maximum results, your provider at Vintage Wellness may recommend LED light therapy in addition to your facial. This light energy therapy uses natural photobiochemical reactions to improve your skin ailments.

Depending on your goals, your skin specialist may suggest a red LED treatment. The red light focuses on cellular rejuvenation and improves skin’s texture and appearance, making it look youthful.

In other cases, blue LED therapy may be the best option. The blue light eliminates the bacteria responsible for acne and breakouts.

What are the types of chemical peels?

Generally speaking, a chemical peel is a mixture of chemicals applied to the skin that makes it peel off, revealing new, healthy skin. Vintage Wellness and Aesthetics offers two broad types of chemical peels:

Mild chemical peels

Mild chemical peels alleviate dry skin, address uneven pigmentation, and help control acne. They require minimal downtime and are the least abrasive.

Medium chemical peels

Medium depth peels use a higher concentration of the same chemicals as mild peels. This type of peel works well if you have lighter-toned skin and want to correct the following:

  • Skin changes due to sun damage
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Moderately deep wrinkles visible when your face is at rest

After the procedure, your skin may be red and swollen for a week or two. As your skin heals, you see a noticeable difference and enjoy the results.
