Why would I need a facial peel?
Often, my clients ask me “Why would I need to do a facial peel?” And “How will I know when to get one?”
Here is what I tell them. Because it helps to slow the aging process. Facial Peels minimize fine lines and wrinkles, scaring and give your skin a more refined and smooth feel and look. They can lessen sun damage and even out skin tone. Facial Peels can turn back the clock! Truly.
Let me explain the cell renewal factor (CRF) or in simple terms- the rate at which your cells turn over moving from the lower deeper layers to the top layer of skin to be washed away or peeled. As baby’s, our cells turn over at an average of every 14 days, teens is 21 to 28 days, adults 28 to 42 days and for those older than 50 the cell renewal factor slows down to an alarming 42 to 84 days!
What this means is that our collagen and elastin production slows way, way down and we age…
Elastin is a protein in connective tissue that is elastic and allows many tissues in the body to resume their shape after stretching or contracting. Elastin helps skin to return to its original position when it is poked or pinched.
Collagen is any of various tough, fibrous proteins found in bone, cartilage, skin and other connective tissue. Collagens have great strength and provide body structures with the ability to withstand forces that stretch them.
Therefore, our jobs as aestheticians is to do as much as possible to get your cells renewed. We do this by forcing the cells to stop moving at a snails pace and turn over more rapidly. It’s really Science over nature at this point. When we do a facial peel we systematically, with purpose and great care, damage the skin. This removes layers of dead skin that have been making your skin look dull and lifeless! Do you ever wonder where your healthy glow went? It’s hidden under layers of dry dead skin cells. Facial Peels, facials and skin care are necessary so that your skin can rejuvenate. After this, your nourishing products can actually penetrate the skin and make a visible difference. Now you’ll see results! Now you start to turn back the clock!
