The Glow Up Package is a personalized facial treatment protocol that consists of three chemical peels and three microneedling sessions. The procedures are normally rotated over the course of a few months.
The type of chemical peel and microneedling procedure performed is highly customizable. During a consultation with a master esthetician, you can review the options available for the best Seattle facials special, the Glow Up package.
Chemical peels and microneedling are effective skin treatments on their own, but when combined, they provide powerful skin benefits. Microneedling creates small holes in the skin that stimulate collagen production, while the chemical peels get rid of dead skin. This means the Glow Up Package goes below the surface to provide powerful rejuvenation and treat various skin concerns.
Microneedling is a professional skin treatment also referred to as “collagen induction therapy”. Using a specialized microneedling medical device, your master esthetician will create small punctures in your skin using tiny needles. These holes are usually not visible to the naked eye. Either hyaluronic acid or platelet rich plasma is spread on the face prior to treatment.
Your body reacts to the tiny punctures like a normal wound. It sends healing defenses, including the signals to produce more collagen and elastin. Over the coming weeks following treatment, this increase in collagen production leads to a renewal of the skin and can treat many skin conditions and concerns.
During the treatment, the hyaluronic acid or PRP penetrates deep into the skin. These agents act as moisturizers and enhance the skin from the inside out. However, choosing to upgrade to platelet rich plasma can have extra benefits. Platelet rich plasma, like the microneedling treatment itself, signals for the production of collagen. This can lead to improved results and may prove effective in treating the appearance of surgical scars and acne scars.
Chemical peels are a diversified treatment that comes in many different varieties. At a consultation, your master esthetician can recommend the right facial peels for your Glow Up Package.
The major difference between chemical peels differing strengths: light, medium, and deep skin peels. Deep peels are not commonly used in the Glow Up Package. Light peels usually utilize glycolic or salicylic acid and remove only the outer layer of skin. Used in conjunction with microneedling, light chemical peels can provide noticeable results. Medium chemical peels often contain trichloroacetic acid, also known as TCA chemical peels. These are among the most commonly performed chemical peels and can complement microneedling sessions well.
During a chemical peel, a master esthetician will spread the chosen peel across your face. You may feel a slight tingling sensation or mild discomfort, but overall, chemical peels are perfectly comfortable. Some chemical peels require removal prior to leaving Allure Esthetic. Others can remain on the skin for absorption.
In the few days following your Seattle chemical peel, you may notice redness and skin peeling. This is perfectly normal because the skin peel removes dead skin and the top layer of skin to produce new skin. The process can treat many skin concerns and lessen their appearance.
