There are many reasons why earlobes may become enlarged or sag — past injury, years of wearing heavy earrings, damage caused by ear gauges, or simply due to aging. Whatever the reason may be, you may find that your earlobes are in need of some TLC. Restoring the shape and look of your earlobes is a simple, yet subtle, way to bring youthfulness back to your head and neck area.
Chemical peel techniques are used to exfoliate your skin by removing dead skin and revealing a fresh new layer that has a smoother texture, and is less wrinkled.
The most common uses of chemical peels are:
- Improved look and feel of skin
- Acne treatment
- Reduced age spots, discolorations, and freckles
- Reduced appearance of wrinkles caused by sun damage or aging
Chemical peels may be used on the face, neck, or hands. You should expect moderate discomfort, and redness for up to 3 days after the procedure.
Because chemical peels can increase skin sensitivity to sunlight, you are encouraged to apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher when venturing outdoors after a procedure.
Extraction services are available to cleanse compacted or clogged pores, usually as part of a facial.
Treatment begins with a complete facial cleansing. Then a specially formulated liquid or cream is applied with steam to soften the skin, and make extraction easier. After this, gentle pressure will be applied to the effected pores.
Once the extractions have been completed, antiseptic or antibacterial products are applied to the skin to return it to its normal pH levels and decrease the odds of further breakouts.
Because home extractions can spread bacteria or damage pores, it is best to let your esthetician perform the procedure, and to avoid picking or popping pores on your own.
Masks, steam baths, and facial massage may be incorporated into our acne treatments. Products may be used to reduce surface skin, remove dead cells, soothe, or hydrate. We can also recommend products for at-home use, such as cleansers and moisturizers that won’t aggravate your acne. Extractions can also be done when little or no inflammation is present.
