A chemical peel is a skin treatment used to resurface the skin and promote regeneration of cells, improving the skin’s overall appearance and reducing blackheads and congestion.
At Clinica Lase, your chemical peel will involve the application of a solution that works to quickly remove the outer layer of the dermis promoting skin turnover. The fresh skin that is unveiled will give you a clearer, brighter, more glowing complexion.
Your clinician will advice you on whether you need a superficial, medium or deeply penetrating peel depending on your unique skin condition. The level of peel will determine the length of downtime you require and your final result.
LED Light Therapy
LED Light Therapy is a painless, non-invasive treatment that uses high-output, Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) to treat specific skin concerns. When using LED for blackheads, your clinician will only choose a setting that emits light at the wavelength that skin bacteria is highly sensitive to, killing the bacteria and reducing the development of new blackheads. One of the best things about LED light therapy is that it’s a completely safe, affordable treatment with no downtime required.
LED light therapy will often be suggested by your clinician as a great complement to another blackhead treatment solution such as microdermabrasion because of it’s soothing and rejuvenating properties.
Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive skin treatment that targets your skin’s natural rejuvenation process by gently removing dead skin from the outer dermis. This process unclogs pores, leaving a brighter, clearer complexion.
When performed regularly, microdermabrasion is an excellent blackhead treatment as it not only unclogs pores but it also improves lymphatic drainage and encourages an increase in collagen production, which improves the overall health and appearance of the skin.
Because microdermabrasion is non-invasive, quick and with no downtime, you can perform the treatment in your lunch break and be free to resume your normal activities.
Blackhead skin care products
Following any Clinica Lase blackhead treatment it’s imperative that you follow up with the appropriate at-home aftercare. Part of that aftercare will require you to use quality skin care products that nourish the skin rather than strip it of natural oils or cause irritation. Your Clinica Lase clinician will talk you through the right products for you and your unique skin needs.
