NEW Spa Specials Every Week this Spring

NEW Spa Specials Every Week this Spring

You read that right. Every week this spring, we are offering new spa service specials. These are flash sales, meaning they are only available for a limited time, so you don’t want to wait to book! See this week’s specials below and learn a little more about each treatment. If you’ve always wondered about microneedling treatment or dermaplaning, now is the chance to jump right in. See how you can save up to 50 percent and look fabulous:

Anti-aging facial

Our anti-aging facial reveals youthful skin with a superior medical grade peel and facial. The proven lightening and exfoliating effects of lactic acid uncover youthful skin and minimize the inflammation and redness of the skin that commonly occurs with chemical peels. You’ll come out looking fresh and years younger! If you’ve never had a facial treatment before, watch this video to know what to expect:

Microneedling

Bathing suit season is coming up faster than many of us like to think and microneedling could be your saving grace. Not only does microneedling work to reverse damage and signs of aging on your face, it also works wonders for stretch marks! Microneedling penetrates deep within the skin to boost the body’s healing process. This boost stimulates collagen and elastin production to visibly reduce unwanted stretch marks and leave your skin looking smoother than ever. See what microneedling can do for stretch marks here:

Dermaplaning

If chemical peels and microdermabrasion aren’t your thing, dermaplaning is a wonderful alternative. The procedure uses a surgical blade to gently exfoliate the outer layer of dead skin cells and remove fine facial hair. The difference will be noticeable immediately after, revealing a smoother and brighter appearance. Watch how the treatment is done here:

Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is all about exfoliation and improving the overall tone and texture of your skin. Microdermabrasion is non-invasive and decreases age spots, sun damage, acne, hyper-pigmentation, fine lines, stretch marks, and scars. See how the treatment is done here:

Stay tuned every week for new specials! You don’t want to miss out on these amazing offers. There’s nothing like a spa day to eliminate stress and feel gorgeous inside and out. Take advantage of our weekly spa services in New Jersey: http://bit.ly/2UGBo4E

9 Benefits of the 1-2-3 Ultimate Facial Event

9 Benefits of the 1-2-3 Ultimate Facial Event

123-facial-event

Back by popular demand, our 1-2-3 Ultimate Facial event will leave your skin (and your wallet) feeling happy. Join us on Friday, February 22, 2019 from 2 to 4 p.m. to receive three amazing facial treatments in just 45 minutes. What would normally cost over $600 is just $299 at the event!

Treatments offered:

Microdermabrasion: a non-invasive physical “skin polishing,” that gets rid of dead skin, leaving your face glowing.
Laser Genesis: uses laser technology to stimulate the production of new collagen and promotes a healthy appearance in a natural way. The Laser Genesis procedure has been described as calming and therapeutic. Patients report feeling a subtle warming sensation on the surface.
Pomegranate Peel: Skin peels help reduce visible signs of photoaging, including fine lines and wrinkles, improve the appearance of uneven skin tone and dullness by exfoliating surface cells, and soften and smooth the skin’s surface texture.

The value of these facial treatments goes beyond just looking great. If you’re not convinced yet, let’s dig into the real benefits of each treatment.

Microdermabrasion

If you’re someone with age spots, sun damage, acne, hyper-pigmentation, fine lines, stretch marks, and scars, microdermabrasion at our South Jersey spa is for you!

Benefits:

  1. Increased circulation. Our process can improve blood circulation within the skin, meaning more nutrients and oxygen being supplied to the cells. Cell processes are improved, which increases the skin’s elasticity.
  2. Enhanced product efficacy. Removing dead skin and improving circulation with microdermabrasion can enhance the absorption of skin care products. If you are treating your skin for acne or wrinkles, your skin will be more receptive to your products!
  3. Reduced pore size. Microdermabrasion can reduce your pore size, as well as unclog pores. Large pores can be genetic, but they may also be a result of hygiene and inflammation of the skin. By unclogging the pores, microdermabrasion promotes overall skin health.

Laser Genesis

Similar to microdermabrasion, laser genesis treats sun damage, fine lines, wrinkles, and diffuses redness.

Benefits:

  1. No down time. Laser genesis is a non-invasive treatment. Afterward, patients can go about their normal skin care and makeup routines with no issue.
  2. Can be used for scar therapy. The treatment has shown to reduce the appearance of acne scarring and burns.
  3. 6. Stimulates collagen growth. Loss of elasticity and firmness of the skin is largely due to the breakdown of collagen as we age. Laser genesis has the power to stimulate the production of new collagen and promotes a healthy appearance.

The Pomegranate Peel

The final portion your treatments will be the pomegranate peel. This last step stimulates cell renewal, resurfaces, lightens, brightens, and encourages healthy cell turnover.

Benefits:

  1. Quick refreshment, no down time. The pomegranate peel is the perfect “lunch time” treatment. In just 15 minutes, your skin will feel amazing and look brighter with no harsh side effects.
  2. Evens skin tone. This treatment is great for correcting issues of pigmentation such as melasma, hyperpigmentation, and discoloration due to age spots and acne scars.
  3. Unclogs pores. The pomegranate peel removes the outer, epidermal layers of the skin to help clear the pores of oil and dirt.

Bright and beautiful skin is achievable at our South Jersey spa! Don’t miss out on this amazing opportunity to receive three treatments in just one visit. Due to the event’s popular nature, space is limited. Register today before it’s too late!

Find the Perfect Skin Care Routine for Your Skin Type

Find the Perfect Skin Care Routine for Your Skin Type

skincare-routine

It’s hard to ignore the constant advertisements for new skin care and beauty products claiming to give you perfect, smooth-looking skin. Unfortunately, what works for your friend might not be the best for you! Your skin type is unique, and the products you use have to cater to what your face needs. At our New Jersey spa, we want to help you discover what you should be looking for in a product for your specific skin type!

Skin types

Dry

Dry skin can be characterized by feeling tightness in the skin with visible scaly patches and flaking. Those with dry skin typically have invisible pores and may develop lines and wrinkles earlier in life. The cause of dry skin could be a result of multiple factors. For some, it could be hereditary or could be a result of products causing excessive dryness.

The perfect remedy for dry skin is moisturizer! Moisturizer is good for all skin types. That’s why it’s so important to find the right one for your skin type. In many cases, dry skin is sensitive skin, so gentle products with natural ingredients are the way to go. Dry skin types tend to benefit from creams instead of lotions, because they are slightly thicker and contain oil-based ingredients.

Ingredients you need:

  • Glycolic acid
  • Aloe vera
  • Lactic acid (good for very dry skin)
  • Urea

Ingredients to avoid:

  • Benzoyl peroxide

 

Oily

Oily skin is typically the result of both genetic factors and hormonal changes. Oily skin means that your oil glands produce a higher amount of sebum – the oily substance created to keep the skin soft and hydrated. Oily skin can be characterized by enlarged pores that fill up with sebum oil, resulting in more acne breakouts and blemishes.

Those with oily skin tend to gravitate toward harsher products that dry out the skin, many of these products contain benzoyl peroxide. While this dries out the skin, it is counterproductive to your skin’s health. Ingredients that dry out your skin could trigger a response for your glands to work overtime in producing sebum, resulting in oilier skin.

The best thing for oily skin is exfoliation, because the buildup of oil can cause dead skin cells to become trapped in the pores and lead to more blemishes. Look for gentle exfoliators to use one to two times a week. Even though oily skin may seem overly moisturized, it’s still important to use a moisturizer! Look for a lightweight, oil-free moisturizer that doesn’t make your skin look or feel overly oily.

Ingredients you need:

  • Salicylic acid
  • Dimethicone (found in moisturizers)
  • Glycolic acid

Ingredients to avoid:

  • Any type of alcohol
  • Sodium lauryl
  • Benzoyl peroxide

 

Combination

As the most common skin type, combination skin can be difficult to identify and treat. It is characterized by dry, flaky patches in certain areas and overly oily places in others. For most with combination skin, the T-zone (forehead, nose, and chin) tends to be the area where oil lives, leaving the cheeks sometimes dryer. The best way to combat combination skin type is a routine that will be strong enough to exfoliate without irritating the skin.

Those with combination skin have found the most success by sticking to natural ingredients and staying away from those products with harsh chemicals that dry out the skin. Products with fragrances, while tempting to buy, are usually chock full of chemicals that create those fragrances – no good for the skin!

When it comes to moisturizing combination skin, using two different products seems like a hassle, but it’s the best way to keep your skin healthy. It’s difficult to find the right balance between a product that caters to the dryness on your cheeks and the oily area in your T-zone. Find a lighter, oil-free moisturizer for your T-zone and a heavier cream for your dry areas.

Ingredients you need:

  • Witch hazel
  • Lactic acid
  • Jojoba oil

Ingredients to avoid:

  • Benzoyl peroxide
  • Any fragrance chemicals
  • Alcohol

 

Finding your perfect skin care routine is going to require some trial and error, but when you find it, you’ll love it. At our New Jersey spa, every skin care procedure comes with a complimentary skin analysis. Using state-of-the-art digital imaging photography, VISIA Complexion Analysis evaluates skin texture, wrinkles, pores, and pigmentation. Quantitative analysis includes comparison of an individual’s skin conditions with those characteristic of the same sex, age, and ethnicity. This will tell you what is going to work best for your skin throughout the treatment and in the future when tracking your skin’s progress. This month, there are many skin care specials that are perfect for Valentine’s Day or just rehydrating your skin throughout the winter!

5 Great Pre-wedding Day Treatments for Brides

5 Great Pre-wedding Day Treatments for Brides

5 GREAT PRE-WEDDING TREATMENTS FOR BRIDES

If you’re planning a wedding right now, you’re probably incredibly stressed. There’s so much to worry about – will the dress fit, will the DJ show up, who still hasn’t RSVP’d, etc. – so you probably haven’t given much thought to treating yourself before the big day. However, if you can fit time into your packed schedule, head to your favorite south Jersey spa and treat yourself to one of the following great pre-wedding day treatments:

  1. Lash lift with tint – rather than wearing uncomfortable fake eyelashes, lash lifts give you the same effect. Lash lifts enhance your natural lashes, curling them up and making them appear longer and fuller. You won’t even feel them. For an added bonus, get a lash tint so you won’t have to worry about applying and ruining your mascara on your wedding day!
  2. Microblading – give everyone major eyebrow envy with microblading! A more natural looking alternative to eyebrow pencils, microblading looks at your eyebrows and determines a suitable shape for your face. Then, pigments are semi-permanently tattooed to the skin, creating a very natural eyebrow that is perfect for your face.
  3. truSculpt – don’t worry about whether you’ll get the zipper up on your dress. Zap away fat and sculpt your body with truSculpt. A noninvasive treatment, truSculpt uses radio frequency technology to heat up and destroy fat cells, leaving your stomach, thighs, or under-chin looking tighter and slimmer than ever.
  4. Massage – you probably just spent the past year or more carefully planning every detail of your wedding, which is incredibly stressful. Unwind and feel your best with a massage. At our south Jersey spa, we offer the classic Swedish and deep tissue massages, but you can also treat yourself to the deluxe massage. That massage blends different techniques to create the perfect treatment for you.
  5. Pomegranate peel and dermaplaning – create the perfect base for your makeup with our pomegranate peel and dermaplaning! The pomegranate peel uses antioxidants to reduce the appearance of redness in your skin. Then, the dermaplaning scrapes away all the dead skin cells and fine hairs from your face, leaving your skin velvety smooth and glowing.

Whether you get one of these treatments or all five, you won’t regret it. You’ll look absolutely stunning and be relaxed and ready to go for your wedding day. Want to make an appointment? Come to our south Jersey spa located in Voorhees. You can book an appointment here or view our monthly specials here.

5 Tips for Beating Dry Skin This Winter

5 Tips for Beating Dry Skin This Winter

5 tips beating dry skin

Winter means less sunlight, colder days, more snow – and dryer skin. Unfortunately, wintertime strips away the skin’s moisture and leaves skin itchy, dry, and red. Even worse, the skin care routine you had in place for the warmer months doesn’t seem to make any strides against tackling the dryness. We have patients come to our spa every winter looking for tips on skin care in New Jersey during the winter, so we’ve decided to share them with everyone! Here are our top five tips for fighting back against winter dry skin:

  1. Avoid very hot water during showers and when washing your hands. While hot water may feel great on your skin after being in the cold, it is extremely drying. Long, steamy showers and overly hot water on your hands strip away the natural oils on your skin. These oils prevent your skin from becoming too dry, so when they disappear, you’re left with cracking, itchy skin.
  2. Use moisturizer religiously. However, not all moisturizers are created equally. Instead of using a light summer moisturizer, you’ll want to invest in a heavier moisturizer for the winter. Look for products with ceramides and hyaluronic acid or oil-based moisturizers because they form a protective barrier around the skin and keep the moisture in. This moisturizer should be used every day and night.
  3. Trade at-home exfoliants for dermaplaning. Over-exfoliating your face in the winter can actually do more harm than good because you are removing all the natural oils and rubbing irritates your skin. Instead, give dermaplaning a shot. This treatment uses a surgical blade to gently scrape away all the dead skin cells, leaving you with smooth, beautiful skin. If you’re looking for this type of skin care in New Jersey, we offer dermaplaning at a special price – check it out!
  4. Pay attention to what’s in your products. There are too many products on the market that are harsh on the skin. Rather than using face washes and toners with alcohols and astringents, look for gentler products. Any face wash with oatmeal or camomile is great for dry skin. Also, add an antioxidant serum to your routine because it adds collagen and vitamin C to the skin to keep it plump and hydrated all winter long.
  5. Try a facial tailored to dry skin. Sometimes you need a little professional help to tackle dry skin, so why not make it relaxing? Look for a facial specifically tailored to dry skin, such as our hydration facial. These facials begin with an exfoliating cleanse to remove dry, dead skin. Then, the products used in the facial will hydrate and return the water content to the skin, giving you soft and hydrated skin no matter how cold the weather.

So are you ready to tackle your dry winter skin? If you need any professional help, our skin care experts would be happy to assess your skin’s needs and provide a treatment to restore your skin’s surface to its former glory. Book an appointment online here.

Top 5 Holiday Spa Treatments that Make Great Gifts

Top 5 Holiday Spa Treatments that Make Great Gifts

5 spa treatments that make great gifts

There are very few people who are fluent in the New Jersey spa services available, which is why we aren’t surprised spa treatments go overlooked as gift to give to someone during the holidays. However, there are very few things that are better than a relaxing day. It’s a getaway without going far – giving the person a break from the chaos of everyday life. If you aren’t familiar with the different services offered at a medical spa, here are the five spa treatments we think make great holiday gifts:

  1. Microblading – this is the most popular treatment we offer. A form of permanent makeup, microblading uses the existing eyebrows to recreate or rebuild a new eyebrow shape. We determine what shape will best highlight a person’s facial structure, then apply permanent makeup to give her or him fuller, darker eyebrows that last up to a year.
    Special Price: $399 for initial appointment, $275 for annual follow up
  2. Microneedling with vitamin C infusion – not to be confused with microblading, microneedling uses several tiny surgical needles to penetrate deep into the skin. The treatment boosts the skin’s collagen production to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and sun damage. The vitamin C infusion brightens and evens the skin to create healthier, radiant skin.
    Special Price: $299
  3. Peppermint aromatherapy massage with hot stones – a perfect way to relax and unwind, this massage melts away tension and fatigue. The peppermint scent is perfect for easing sore muscles, and the hot stones relieve muscle tension and make it easier to relax. When it comes to New Jersey spa services, you won’t find a better deal than this.
    Special Price: $110
  4. Hydration facial with collagen mask – moisturized skin is very important. That’s why we created the hydration facial. We first exfoliate away the dead skin cells. Then, the facial is applied to add moisture back into the skin. The collagen mask is applied to plump the skin, leaving the skin refreshed and moisturized.
    Special Price: $110
  5. PICO Genesis – created to even out discoloration and pigmentation concerns, PICO Genesis uses a pulse laser to break up pigment particles without causing damage to the surrounding area. Brighter, more even skin is noticeable in just two treatments and no downtime.
    Special Price: $300 per session

Give that special someone the gift of a relaxing day and healthier skin. We will pamper her or him to make sure they truly know how much you care. Book an appointment this month to receive some great end of the year savings! You can view the complete list of December specials on our New Jersey spa services here. Purchase a gift card here.

The 12 Days of Skin Care

The 12 Days of Skin Care

12 days of skin care

The holidays are coming up quicker than ever, which means you’re going to see friends and family all month long. As you party your way into the new year, don’t you want to look your best? We can help with that – it all starts with taking care of your skin! In the spirit of the holidays and as advocates of quality skin care in New Jersey, we present to you the 12 days of skin care:

Dermaplaning

A service that is rapidly growing in popularity, dermaplaning provides immediate results. An aesthetician uses a surgical blade to gently scrape along your face, removing the outer layer of dead skin cells and any fine facial hair. There is no pain, and the entire treatment is actually very calming. When it’s over, you will have noticeably smoother and brighter skin with no irritation or redness.

Microdermabrasion

Unlike some other skin care treatments, microdermabrasion is non-invasive but still polishes your skin to leave it looking the best it has all year. A handheld device with a sand-like exfoliant on the end is used to reduce the appearance of age spots, discoloration, sun damage, acne, wrinkles, stretch marks, and scars. The more treatments you receive the more you will see flaws disappear from your skin.

Anti-aging Facial

Skin is beautiful at all ages, but if you’d like to make your skin look more youthful, our anti-aging facial will do the trick. This chemical peel lightens and exfoliates the skin to minimize inflammation and redness and removes any flaky skin to leave you looking fresh-faced and glowing. This 60-minute facial also includes an eye contour treatment, hand treatment, and a neck and shoulder massage to truly pamper you.

Ultherapy

Using ultrasound energy, Ultherapy kickstarts collagen production in the skin to lift and tighten skin without surgery. After determining problem areas on your skin, an aesthetician will use an ultrasound on your skin to select where treatment should be administered. Then, you’ll feel small energy surges while the applicator boosts collagen production. As collagen rebuilds, you’ll see better and better results over time.

Laser Genesis

If you’re looking for skin care in New Jersey, this treatment is a must-have. Laser Genesis not only treats premature signs of aging and skin damage, it also reduces the appearance of scars and burns. While results are initially subtle, multiple treatments will drastically improve the skin’s appearance. The treatment is great for all skin types, safe, and quick, so it’s a great option for people wanting great skin on the go.

Pelleve

Perfect for nearly all kinds of wrinkles and fine lines. Feeling like a warm facial massage, Pelleve uses radio waves of heat to target deep into your skin, causing the skin to tighten and new collagen to be produced. A conductive gel is added and an applicator is placed on the skin to remove your problem areas with no pain at all.

Pearl Fractional

Say goodbye to photodamaged skin. Pearl Fractional Laser uses a laser beam consisting of tiny dots to pulses very small holes into the skin to remove areas with damage and boost collagen production. Effective after just one treatment, you will start to see full results between one and three months following the treatment.

Microneedling

The name says it all – microneedling uses tiny surgical needles to penetrate the skin and stimulate collagen production. Because the needles come in different lengths, they penetrate different layers of the skin to cause pinpoint bleeding. The skin then kicks itself into healing mode, increasing tightness and firmness.

Pomegranate Peel

Couple the effects of a traditional chemical peel with the antioxidants of pomegranate, and you’ve created an excellent skin care treatment. Like most peels, the pomegranate peel uses acid to penetrate deep into the skin, removing any dead skin and reducing some of the skin’s surface damage. Dermaplaning is also included for free.

Skin Analysis

Not all skin is created equal – that’s why we offer skin analysis. When you come into our office, we use digital imaging photography to do a full scan of your skin, evaluating texture, wrinkles, pores, and pigmentation. The information we gather from the scan is compared to the skin of someone your gender, age, and ethnicity. We use that data to track how your skin progresses as you receive treatments. Best part? It’s included for free with any facial service.

Limelight

Used to treat signs of aging and sun damage, Limelight treatments cause damage to fade and flake away in one to three weeks. Heat penetrates your problem areas, which may feel like a mild pinch or sting, but it is not painful. After an average of one to three treatments, you’ll see reduced appearance of imperfections, leaving you with better skin.

Botox

Probably the most well-known medical spa treatment, Botox reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. When injected in the skin, Botox blocks nerve impulses and slows down muscle activity to give the skin a smoother appearance. This treatment is fast and easy, which is why so many people call it the lunchtime procedure.

If you’re looking for quality skin care in New Jersey to give you a radiant complexion this holiday season, all 12 of these treatments are available at ANU Medical Spa! We evaluate your skin to find problem areas and pinpoint each area to eliminate blemishes and discoloration. Book an appointment for any (or all) of these services here, or if you’re looking to save a little money, check out our monthly specials on select services here. You won’t find better skin care in New Jersey.

Microneedling or Laser Genesis: Which is Right for You?

Microneedling or Laser Genesis: Which is Right for You?

microneedling vs laser genesis

Our skin changes as we age. It is inevitable, but that doesn’t mean you have to give in to fine lines, wrinkles, and other skin imperfections. Women and men are discovering new ways to get their youthful shine back with a new moisturizer, healthy habits, or heading over to the spa for a skin care treatment. Moisturizing and making healthy choices are everyday habits that are simple enough to complete, but finding the right treatment for you at a medical spa requires a little more thought. Two effective anti-aging treatments are offered at ANU Medical Spa in New Jersey: microneedling and laser genesis. These treatments go deeper than any new moisturizer or health craze. They are similar in the benefits they provide, but their approaches are very different. So which is right for you?

Microneedling vs. Laser Genesis

Benefits of both treatments

  • Reduces appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Reduces pore size
  • Improves scarring
  • Improves sagging skin
  • Reduces discoloration and pigment issues
  • Boosts collagen production for firmer skin

Microneedling

Microneedling is a minimally-invasive treatment that uses an FDA-approved electronic pen device, called Dermapen®. It uses multiple fine needles to pierce and needle the skin, which causes collagen remodeling and enhances skin rejuvenation. Different from an exfoliating treatment, microneedling penetrates the lower layers of the skin to kickstart the body’s wound healing response to begin producing new collagen.

Compared to laser genesis, microneedling is slightly more intense due to the mechanical nature of the treatment. The treatment only takes about 30 minutes, and there is virtually no downtime. Additionally, there are less potential side effects of microneedling, and it is safe to use on all skin types. After a few treatments, the results can last for months if taken care of properly.

Laser genesis

Laser genesis is a comfortable, non-invasive treatment that gradually stimulates new skin growth and collagen production by using laser technology. Laser genesis targets the upper dermis layer of your skin. Heat is used to boost collagen regrowth with no downtime and minimal discomfort. In fact, the laser genesis procedure has been described as calming and therapeutic. Due to its non-invasive nature, laser genesis is performed without the use of a topical anesthetic.

Laser genesis treatments tend to be more selective. By design, lasers use light as energy. This allows lasers to have a specific target to treat in the skin without damaging surrounding tissue. Similar to microneedling, laser genesis requires a few rounds of treatment to see desired results. However, laser treatment results tend to be longer lasting (up to 12 months).

With both treatments, there are things you can do to ensure the longest lasting results:

  • Use sunblock year-round
  • Limit smoking and drinking
  • Eat healthy and exercise regularly
  • Come back for follow-up appointments
  • Follow a recommended skin care routine

Deciding what’s right for you

If you’re looking to proactively treat your skin, microneedling is a quick and low-risk way to see the results you want. If you have a more specific skin issue to address, a laser genesis treatment might be better for you.

Want to try out microneedling? This month at ANU Medical Spa in New Jersey, microneedling is just $199, normally $350. For an extra fee, you could add on a vitamin C infusion for even healthier skin. See the monthly special here.

Why You NEED to Come to our 1-2-3 Ultimate Facial Event

Why You NEED to Come to our 1-2-3 Ultimate Facial Event

kybella

You asked, and we listened – we received so much demand that we are bringing back the 1-2-3 Ultimate Facial Event on Friday, September 21 from 2 to 4 p.m.! This event combines three great skincare treatments to give you the best skin you’ve ever had at the best price you’ll ever see. If you were to get these treatments done any other day of the year, it’d cost you $610, but if you reserve your spot for this event, it’ll only cost $299! By booking, you’ll receive each treatment in 15-minute windows from our board-certified physician Dr. Anu Momi and our licensed aestheticians, giving you flawless skin in just 5 minutes.

This event will combine the following treatments:

Step 1: Microdermabrasion

This treatment is one of the most popular among people trying to improve their skin. A rough handpiece is rubbed all over the face to remove dead skin cells and improve the skin’s texture. It reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, scarring, sun spots, and other imperfections. Aside from the feeling of roughness on your skin, this treatment is comfortable and relaxing.

Step 2: Laser Genesis

A great option for people looking to reduce the signs of aging, Laser Genesis is used to create improvements in the skin’s appearance. A non-painful laser is moved across the skin to reduce scarring, hyperpigmentation, enlarged pores, and wrinkles. Results are subtle after one treatment but after three to five, you’ll see drastic improvements that will last up to a year.

Step 3: Pomegranate Peel

Like most other peels, the pomegranate peel uses skin-friendly chemicals to remove the top layer of skin, leaving a fresh, smooth appearance. This peel delivers strong antioxidants, so you’ll see a reduction in redness and discoloration a few hours after the treatment. You may feel a mild to strong stinging sensation on the skin while the peel is on. Other than that, it’s painless.

There is very limited availability for this event, so you’ll want to BOOK NOW! You can call to book at 856-809-0909 or you can book online here. If you’re even mildly considering this event, reserve your spot as soon as possible to take advantage of huge savings and three great skincare treatments.

Why you Should Consider a Chemical Peel

Why you Should Consider a Chemical Peel

chemical peel

When it comes to skin care, chemical peels are one of the most misunderstood treatments. Maybe it’s because the thought of using chemicals to treat skin seems more dangerous than helpful, but that’s simply not true! Chemical peels are one of the most effective ways to treat many different types of skin damage with no pain. Get the facts about this awesome treatment below:

What is a chemical peel?

Like a facial, chemical peels are used to improve the appearance of your skin by removing signs of aging and damage. Chemical peels use a chemical solution to peel off the outer layer of skin and reveal a new, smoother face. With the exception of some redness and minor irritation, peels have no side effects.  

What types of peels exist?

There are superficial, medium, and deep peels, which all use a different type of acid to treat your skin. Superficial peels treat the top layer of skin to remove discolored and rough skin. Medium peels penetrate the medium layer of skin to improve sun spots, wrinkles, fine lines, freckles, and skin discoloration. This peel can also remove some precancerous cells. Finally, deep peels penetrate even deeper, removing all the things the previous two peels can and even scarring. If you are looking for skin care in New Jersey, we offer lactic, glycolic, pigment balancing, radiance, antioxidant pomegranate, salicylic, advanced, and three-step peels. Let us know what you hope to accomplish from a peel, and we can point you in the right direction.

What are the skin benefits?

There are many different benefits to chemical peels. They reduce acne scarring, wrinkles, fine lines, sagging skin, crow’s feet, hyperpigmentation, discoloration, sun damage, roughness, and other types of skin damage. No wonder peels are so popular! The degree of correction varies on the strength of the peel and frequently you get them.

Are they safe for everyone?

There are a few types of people who aren’t good candidates for chemical peels, including pregnant women, those who have taken the acne medication Accutane in the past six months, people who have used acid-based skin care products in the previous 48 hours, and anyone with rosacea, eczema, or similar conditions. You should also not receive a chemical peel if you have an open cut or sore. Everyone’s skin reacts differently to chemical peels, but fair-skinned people typically see the best results.

Do they hurt?

While chemical peels sound like they may not be the most pleasant of experiences, they are actually quite the opposite. Aside from a stinging sensation, which can vary in severity but never gets too intense, chemical peels don’t hurt at all. The more intense the peel, the more intense the stinging. If the stinging gets too intense, tell your aesthetician and she will remove the peel and put cream on it to negate the feeling.

Hopefully, we’ve alleviated some of the confusion and uncertainty about chemical peels, and you’re feeling ready to give them a try. If you’re looking for skin care in New Jersey, we’d be happy to learn about your skin care goals and help you find the perfect chemical peel for you. Right now, our pomegranate peel is only $80!
