Bonjour mes amis,
Fall peel season is here! This is the ideal time to revitalize your skin from damage incurred during the harsh summer months. Sun damage causes 99.5% of aging due to UV rays and harmful chemicals that put your skin through wear and tear. Luckily, it doesn’t have to take long to reverse these damages and see visible results in areas you’d like to see it most – just in time for your holiday parties!
GLYCOLIC PEELS are the most effective treatment for sun-damaged skin because they deeply exfoliate to create resurfaced, radiant skin and strip photo damage caused by the sun. Glycolic acid is derived from sugar cane, which loosens the cellular debris layer and exfoliates your skin. It not only allows your products to absorb into your skin more efficiently, but also eliminates abnormal cells that can eventually lead to skin cancers. It’s a great way to bring your skin back to life from those dry, summer months!
Need A French Touch? We offer the Jan Marini Glycolic Acid Peel series. This series includes three peels over three weeks. This treatment creates softer, more refined skin without any downtime, redness, or flaking.
Take advantage of our autumn peel promotional packages that incorporate the most affective treatments and home care to achieve the targeted results you are seeking for your skin.
So let’s cut to the chase — why peels? The reason peels rank among the top aesthetic procedure performed is that they are a simple, affordable and effective method of addressing big concerns like sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles, clogged or enlarged pores, acne, and hyperpigmentation.
We offer our peels as individual services, but strongly recommend a Peel Series because they offer progressively deeper exfoliation, resulting in more visible results that include better product absorption of your skincare line- the most important part of your skin maintenance plan for the long-term.
Peel series of either 3 peels over 3 weeks or 3 more intensive salicylic peels (REFINED PEEL SERIES) over 3 months, both offered at A French Touch Salon, also have the benefit of little to no downtime along with the beautiful results. Not only will you visibly see the difference following a single peel, but the collagen stimulation activity in the dermis provides long-term anti-aging benefits.
We also strongly encourage the implementation or continuation of a healthy beauty routine (every morning and especially every night, when the skin is resting and better able to incorporate active ingredients) to enhance the results of your peels. Resurfacing your skin with a peel will make your skin care products penetrate more deeply and work harder for your skin, which will make you look and feel better and help to maintain the effects of your salon treatments. We recommend the JAN MARINI SKIN CARE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM for daily care, and our Skin Zyme Green Papaya Mask to be applied once or twice once or twice per week to increase radiance and skin health, instead of harsher exfoliating scrubs. Our Clean Zyme Green Papaya Cleanser and Skin Zyme Mask duo offer measurable improvement in skin texture, clarity and firmness when used with the Skin Care Management System.
The key, however, is to be sure that you’re selecting the right type of peel and level of intensity for your specific skin care needs. We offer three different types of peel series at A French Touch Salon.
The Glycolic Acid Peel (20% and 40% option)
This is our gentlest peel series (perfect for those with sensitive skin or rosacea who seek an introduction to peels), which combines glycolic acid and proteolytic enzymes from green papayas to digest cellular debris and build-up and refresh your skin. The term ‘proteolytic’ refers to an enzymatic action–delivered through our calming, aromatic Skin Zyme Mask–that selectively digests dead or diseased protein material while leaving living healthy cells intact. Unlike abrasive scrubs or other mechanical methods, this peel is gentle enough for all skin types but effective enough to yield noticeable results after three treatments. This series has little to no downtime, and should be completed within three weeks for best results.
The Luminate or Retinol Peel Series
This peel is more intense than the Enzyme peel, as it combines the power of glycolic acid (lifts and dissolves the layers of dead skin cells and congestion in the pores to reveal healthy, glowing skin) and the power of Retinol (from Jan Marini’s Retinol Plus Mask) to treat fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, acne, and other visible signs of aging. These two key ingredients work beautifully together, because as the glycolic treatment clears the debris away from healthy skin cells and pores, the 1% Retinol is able to penetrate more deeply and stimulate collagen synthesis, cell strength, and evenness of skin tone and texture (read: bye bye wrinkles and dark spots, when paired with our Retinol Plus Cream or Luminate Lightening Lotion at home!). This series also has very little downtime, and should be completed within three weeks to capture the best results.
The Refine Salicylic Peel Series
The Refine Peel Series is our most intensive treatment, but provides the most notable results in combating fine lines and wrinkles, acne, and pigmentation issues to reveal a noticeably firmer, brighter, softer and more supple you. The combination of Lactic, Salicylic, and Citric acids, revitalize and refresh by resurfacing the skin. We apply a strong anti-aging cocktail of retinol and anti-aging peptides to your freshly awakened skin, combined with Green Tea Extract and other calming agents whose anti-inflammatory action soothes. The intensity of this peel requires that treatments be performed once per month, rather than per week, and may cause some flaking for three to five days after the procedure. However, the “apres-peel” period still has far less peeling and downtime than more aggressive and expensive chemical peels, while offering comparable results.
Peels are the best way to ensure that your skin is clean and healthy so that your skin care products can penetrate more deeply into the skin and yield quicker and more visible results. Selecting a peel series that is the right strength and intensity for you is key, along with a solid home care regimen, so that you are getting the custom results you need for your skin concerns.
