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!
Many spas offer different variations of body wraps and “weight loss wraps”. As we have all learned there is nothing that will turn us into a super star after one, hour and a half treatment. So what do these body wraps really do for us? The body contour wrap we offer at Studio 229 helps to eliminate cellulite and pull toxins from the fat cells. Cellulite can appear on even the thinnest people. Sometimes it has nothing to do with our weight but how many toxins are holding onto to our fat cells in the body. Most people will lose 1/2 to 2 inches per treatment. This is all depending on the toxin levels of your body. This is an awesome treatment for people during this time of year. It is almost summer and people are starting to cleanse and detox to get there summer bodies ready. This is the perfect treatment to set yourself up for that weight loss success. The less toxins that are in your body, the easier it is for your body to let go of fat and shed pounds.
First make sure you wear a bra and underpants you don’t mind getting a little product on, nothing stains but I would never encourage anyone to wear a $75.00 Victoria’s Secret bra in when getting wrapped. A swim suit can also work. You will get a good exfoliation and then wrapped. The cream needs to sit for about and hour. This is a great time to receive a brow wax or tint. You will then be able to rest under blanket for the remainder of the time. We take measurements of the main trouble areas. Thighs, arms, and waist. This allows you to see your results from the treatment. Remember like anything these wraps work best in a series. Suggesting 3 to 4 treatments to see optimum results.
