Chemical Peels

Chemexfoliation treatments also known as chemical peels are great for all kinds of skin issues. Many people fear the thought of a “chemical peel”. There are many different kinds and strengths. The peels our skin experts use here at Studio 229 on Capitol Hill in Seattle, are less severe then ones done in dermatologist offices and medical spas. The two options we offer are glycolic (30% or 40%) and salicylic. The two have little to no down time.

For mature skin a glycolic acid treatment is always a great way to encourage skin cell turnover and keep skin looking radiant and youthful. The glycolic acid removes the top, dead skin cells to reveal new healthy skin. When used in a series the peels, over time, can help reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Salicylic acid peel treatments work best on acne prone skin. The salicylic peel helps to bring down inflammation and dry out the filaments and oils on the skin. Most clients see results after just one chemical peel treatment.

It is very important after any skin treatment, especially a chemical peel, to apply liberal amounts of sun screen. Direct sun exposure after a treatment can cause scaring at the site of a blemish. Sun screen is always important but if it is not something already in your daily skin routine, it needs to be after having any chemical peel. You may notice some redness after your treatment. This should only be this way for a couple days with little or no peeling of the skin. Chemical peels are treatments you should leave to the professionals. There are risks of chemical burning to the skin if the procedure is done incorrectly. Our Estheticians here at Studio 229 in Seattle bring only the best, safest, and most affective treatments possible!

Exfoliating for a natural beautiful glow

Exfoliating for a natural beautiful glow is a must at studio 229’s spa. As summer quickly approaches we are all preparing for fun in the sun. Dieting, exercising, hair removal, tanning, and skin preparation. One thing most people forget is the importance of removing the dead skins cells from the surface of the skin. Exfoliating is such and important and often neglected part of peoples skin care routines. The more built up skin cells on the skin the harder it is for product penetration. Exfoliation reveals fresh, new  skin that can then absorb the product to it’s fullest potential.

So how often should we be exfoliating? A light exfoliation 2-3 times a week is ideal to keep up with removing excess dirt, oils, and dead skin from the epidermis (top layers of the skin). A cleanser with light exfoliating beads or a facial brush works best. For skin that tends to become red or irritated easily you should find a liquid exfoliators such as the Vera Botania Glyco Gel. This will prevent any excess redness or damage to your already sensitive skin. If this is your skin type you should not exfoliate as often. Be very careful of OVER exfoliating your skin. Skin on the face can easily be damaged and torn. Here at Studio 229 on Capitol Hill in Seattle we have a couple great treatment options to help you maintain that beautiful glowing skin!! A microderm treatment is an exfoliating treatment in itself. This treatment is the process of removing the built up dead skin cells to reveal the youthful skin underneath. This is the perfect treatment to help with anti-aging! Also our facial treatments at Studio 229 Hair Design and Spa include an awesome exfoliation that helps the products used during your service to better benefit your skin. We are the only spa on Broadway and strive to provide the best and most up to date treatments available! Studio 229 is looking forward to seeing you and your beautiful skin!
