Facials and Chemical Peels Q & A

What is the difference between a spa facial and a medical facial?

Spa facials are excellent for energizing skin, receiving a gentle facial massage, and spending a relaxing hour that can leave you feeling rejuvenated. A spa facial may include cleansing and exfoliating a layer of dead skin, and possibly the application of a product to soothe your skin after the procedure. Spa facials are intended to improve your skin tone and texture for a short period of time.

Medical facials focus on improving your skin from the inside out. Medical facials are performed by licensed medical professionals, and although they may not be as relaxing as spa facials, the results are longer-lasting and often significantly more beneficial to your skin, especially if you have problems you want to address. In order to truly restore and rejuvenate your skin from acne scars, sun damage, aging and other factors, a medical facial with medical-grade products is an advantage over a spa facial.

What is a chemical peel?

Chemical peels are a type of medical facial that gently removes the skin’s outer layers, usually from your face, by dissolving dead cells on the skin’s surface. These types of procedures promote regeneration and repair and therefore improve your skin’s health and appearance. Dr. Colon and her experienced medical team determine the type of chemical peel that works best for your particular skin type and any conditions you want to correct.

A chemical peel should not be painful or burn your skin. Dr. Colon uses gentle, effective medical skincare products that can help to:

  • Smooth skin and improve texture
  • Tighten skin
  • Improve sun-damaged skin
  • Diminish the appearance of fine lines
  • Even out skin tone and decrease the appearance of brown spots
  • Diminish the appearance of acne scarring and redness

What types of facials and chemical peels are available?

Dr. Colon and the team of nurses and aestheticians at Evolve Wellness & Aesthetics Center offer a variety of medical grade facials and chemical peels to suit all of your skin care needs. Gentle exfoliating peels rejuvenate the surface layer of skin and can improve hydration and give your face a more youthful glow. Gentle facials typically brighten the skin in a single treatment.

Stronger chemical peels penetrate the deeper layers of skin and are meant to give you more dramatic results that include skin tightening, sun damage reduction, and more even pigmentation overall.
