4 Reasons Why You Should Make Chemical Peels Part of Your Beauty Routine

Chemical peels are the perfect way to let your natural radiance shine through and restore that youthful glow. If you are not yet familiar with chemical peels and what it has to offer, continue reading to see why this treatment is a great addition to your beauty routine.

Remove Dead Cells

Chemical peels lift dead skin cells and allow healthier skin cells to move to the surface. Not only does this result in more radiant and smoother skin, it also allows your skin care products to penetrate deeper and work more effectively.

Reduce Fine Lines and Wrinkles

Due to the fact that chemical peels stimulate collagen production and eliminate dead cells making way for healthier living cells, you will naturally see a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles in the skin.

Treat Acne

Chemical peels exfoliate the skin with an acid solution that lifts away dead cells and removes impurities from the skin. This treatment is a great way to control breakouts and fade acne scars.

Improve Overall Appearance of the Skin

Chemical peels reveal youthful and more radiant skin after releasing the dead cells. With a chemical peel, you can achieve a beautiful natural glow with minimal effort.

To achieve a stunning youthful appearance, we recommend the MICRO BRIGHT Skin Brightening Peel and the REVEAL Skin Retexturing Peel. Contact us today for more information!

Protect Your Skin While Wearing a Mask

Skin Care Under Your Mask

As businesses reopen and employees return to the workplace, many of us are finding ourselves wearing face masks more often and for longer periods of time. With stay-at-home orders lifted, wearing a facial mask has been deemed more important now than ever as we work to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.

As of July 13, 2020, Governor Whitmer’s executive order actually requires that individuals wear a mask or facial covering while in an indoor public space or in crowded outdoor spaces.

With the blazing summer heat and increased moisture, wearing a mask for extended periods of time can have negative consequences for your skin if not cared for properly. This is what causes what has recently been coined as “Maskne.”

Dr. Craig Kraffert explained that “Wearing a mask can cause acne as the mask traps dirt and oil in the pores.” Stress and friction from the mask only exacerbate the problem.

One way to combat “Maskne” is by using a clearing serum designed to regulate oil production and proactively address conditions that lead to such breakouts. For an effective cleansing oil, we recommend Eve Taylor’s Clearing Aromatic Treatment Serum – a blend of natural essential oils and plant oils perfect for re-balancing the skin.

Physical Therapy Services are Now Available Every Friday!

Schedule

Services Offered

Manual Physical Therapy

Hands on approach to treatment which includes techniques such as soft tissue release, mobilizations and manipulations. Manual therapy helps to modulate pain, improve range of motion, mobilize restricted joints, facilitate muscle action, and enhance healing and repair.  I believe that providing manual care is more effective and the best use of a patient’s time than utilizing mechanical modalities like ultrasound and electronic stimulation.

 

Integrative Dry Needling

While dry needling uses thin hair like acupuncture needles, dry needling is not acupuncture.  Dry needling is a minimally invasive technique, rooted Western medicine, and treats the body’s musculoskeletal and nervous systems.  Needles are inserted into triggers points, muscle, fascia and connective tissues.  Research indicates that it is effective for pain control, releasing muscle tension, and restoring normal body physiology.  In practice, needles augment manual therapy and access places in the body that hands can not.

 

Cupping

While these “spots” may look painful, the vast majority of my patients report cupping to be a pain free and pain relieving treatment.  The vacuum effect of cupping improves microcirculation, lymphatic flow, breaks down scar tissue and adhesions, and softens muscle and tissue tension.  If bruising occurs, it’s often temporary and dissipates within days.
