What is a facial?
A "facial" is a treatment administered by a licensed aesthetician that can address any number of skin concerns.
Facial treatments typically consist of a skin analysis, deep cleansing, exfoliating and/or masqueing, massage and moisturizing. It
may also include extraction of blackheads or whiteheads. A facial can also include a chemical or enzyme peel.
How often should I have a facial?
Regular facials can help improve
the appearance and condition of your skin, extend the life of laser or surgical treaments and treat many skin conditions.
During your facial, our esthetician will analyze your skin and make recommendations regarding the type and frequency of treatments
as well as a home care program. After a series of treatments to remedy specific problems, a facial treatment is recommended
at least once per month.
What types of skin problems can be treated with facials?
There are many conditions such as dryness, fine wrinkling, brown spots, acne, scars, oiliness and sun damage
to name a few.
How does a chemical peel work?
work similarly to laser peels in that they dissolve the uppermost layers of the skin to allow new, fresh regrowth. However,
the depth of the peel can be very light to very deep depending upon the peeling agent and how long it is left on the skin.
At Sierra Cosmetic Laser we offer light to moderate chemical peels. The ingredients in chemical peels vary depending
upon the condition you wish to treat and depth of peel. Typical peeling agents include acids (Salicylic, Glycolic, Lactic,
Vitamin C) or enzymes (fruit or vegetable) or a combination.
How will my
skin feel after a chemical peel?
It is not uncommon for the skin to be a bit red right after a peel, somewhat
like a sunburn. Over the next few days you will likely notice flaky peeling of the skin and some darker areas especially
if you are treating brown spots. There is typically no "down time" with a light to moderate peel, you will
just need to be careful to avoid a lot of sun exposure and wear a good quality sunscreen.
