Holiday party season is amongst us!

Well Calgary, did we even get a fall? The leaves are gone and the bare bones trees and cold blowing snow are the first reminders to get Holiday Party Ready! With the colder and drier weather, our spirits are not the only thing that needs a little brightening; our skin very likely needs a good sparkle too! Let’s look forward to brightening our spirits with all the beautiful decorations, sparkling snow and get party ready skin with a chemical peel for a radiant glow! (Did that rhyme?)

Did you know that there are different levels of chemical peels? Often people whom are misinformed (thanks Samantha from Sex and the City! Did we just age ourselves!?)  shy away from this type of procedure prior to an event. Now don’t get us wrong, there are definitely some skin conditions that require a more aggressive and deeper peel; leaving the skin raw and peeling, but there are also more superficial peels that leave the skin refined and glowing. This is what we’re talking about for a pre-party treatment. Not only do we have a few that will leave the skin smooth and radiant but with over 18 peels to choose from here at SkinScience, we can customize one for your specific needs even the most sensitive of skin types.

Chemical Peel – A chemical peel is when a specific acid such as AHA/ BHA’s or an enzyme is applied to the skin to help reduce various skin concerns such as pigmentation, scarring, fine lines and wrinkles and red or dull complexions. Professional chemical peels can range from light peels with little to no downtime, to deeper peels with downtime of a week in most cases.

Organic Enzyme Peel – this is an enzyme based peel with pineapple and papaya. Not only does it smell like a tropical holiday but it is also organic. This is our most gentle peel that reduces inflammation, is full of antioxidant protection and gently resurfaces for a radiant glow.

The Signature Facelift – With 30% L-Ascorbic Acid this is great for brightening, inflammation, acne/acne scars, rosacea, antioxidant protection, firming the skin and creating a dewy glow.

C-Infusion Resurfacer – This antioxidant resurfacer brightens and revitalizes resistant skin as it removes layers of sluggish skin cells. Vitamin C, Glycolic and a plethora of plant extracts infuse the skin tissues with antioxidants and hydrating properties to contribute to barrier repair.

Lactic Acid Resurfacer – Ideal for sun damage, melasma and sensitized skin condition like rosacea, this 30% lactic acid resurfacer is active while gentle for an even skin tone. Paired with sodium hyaluronate, this treatment is the ultimate cellular humectant (yay for Calgarians). An unrivaled moisture magnet, crafted to replenish dehydrated, dull skin.

Any of these amazing chemical peels can be done alone or added to another service.

If you would like the ultimate pre-party resurfacing treatment, think about combining a chemical peel with a dermaplaning and LED red light.

Dermaplaning – Dermaplaning is a cosmetic procedure that removes the top layers of your skin by using a surgical blade to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, acne scarring, and pore size. It is also known as a great party ready procedure as it removes vellus hairs for a smoother makeup application and aides in the better absorption of products; including the peel, for a dewy glow.

LED Red Light Therapy – LED red light, the wavelength of 630nm, known as ‘bio-active’ light can increase cellular activity, soothe inflammation and promote collagen. With the benefits of skin rejuvenation, increased skin elasticity, repair to damaged cells, refining pores and firming the skin, this anti-aging and highly anti-inflammatory treatment is a must have to calm more active procedures and inflammatory skin conditions.
