is a general classification for a number of chemical treatments used to exfoliate and rejuvenate the skin. Typically during a chemical peel nothing actually "peels" off. A chemical solution is applied to the skin, and works by dissolving the upper layers of the skin. As the tissue is dissolved, this stimulates the skin, causing new tissue to emerge.
There are a variety of different types of chemical skin peels, as there are a variety of chemicals used each with their own properties. With a chemical peel you get some tightening of the skin, you get improvements of pre-cancerous and brown spots, and a general resurfacing of the skin.
is a procedure involving a variety of skin treatments, including: steam, exfoliation, extraction, creams, lotions, masks, peels, and massage. A facial cleans, exfoliates and nourishes the skin to promote clear, well-hydrated skin.
- A facial begins with a thorough cleansing and a product chosen for your skin type (normal, dry, oily, combination, sensitive, mature.)
- Skin Analysis. The esthetician covers your eyes and looks at your skin through brightly lit magnifying lamps that reveal various skin conditions.
- Exfoliation using a mechanical or chemical defoliant. Mechanical exfoliation has a gritty texture and usually happens while a steam vapor is directed at your face. Some facials may use steam towels instead.
- Extraction of blackheads or whiteheads if you want it and need it.
- Facial massage using classic strokes like effleurage to both relax you and stimulate your skin and facial muscles.
- A facial mask targeted to your skin type (dry, oily, combination, sensitive, mature.)
At Strokes of Beauty you’ll find Oregon's’ most comprehensive vein clinic, treating both spider and varicose veins using the most modern laser technology . Through selective photothermolysis, these vessels can be selectively eliminated without damaging the surrounding healthy tissue. Strokes of Beauty treatments are quick, safe and effective.
Red and brown discoloration treatments work by precisely targeting unwanted lesions:
Brown discolorations, also known as pigmented lesions (age spots, sun spots, etc.), are darker than the rest of the skin and absorb more laser energy than the surrounding skin. Red discolorations, also known as vascular lesions (small veins, rosacea, cherry angiomas, etc.), are overgrown or enlarged blood vessels. Preferentially heating vessel walls causes them to weaken, fall and be absorbed by the body.
You will start by meeting with a Strokes of Beauty staff member to discuss your medical history, determine your eligibility, discuss details of the actual treatment, pricing and schedule a treatment time. After arriving for your appointment, the treatment site will be cleaned and a topical anesthetic may be applied. If anesthetic is used, you will need to wait as it takes effect. Immediately before treatment, the anesthetic
will be removed and laser eye shields or safety glasses will be placed over your eyes.
Your clinician will apply a clear gel to the skin on which the chilled laser handpiece will glide.
Treatment progresses in stages:
- Utilizing high precision beams, laser energy is delivered to distinct sun spots and age spots.
The same high precision beam is adjusted to match distinct vascular targets including superficial veins and cherry angiomas.
- The laser is changed from a precision spot to a large spot for general background sun damage.
You may experience a slight tingling during treatment. To help manage comfort and safety, the system is equipped with a chilled sapphire tip which cools skin before, during, and after each pulse. Any concerns you have should be discussed with your clinician prior to treatment. Depending on the level of treatment, your Clinician may offer a topical anesthetic to help numb the skin prior to treatment.
Treatments can take 5 to 30 minutes or more depending on the treatment area.
Most patients experience considerable improvement after 1 to 3 treatments depending upon the skin condition and level of treatment.
Soon after treatment your skin may appear slightly flushed and swollen. These effects usually subside after a few hours/days depending on treatment intensity. In most cases, treatment will cause sun spots and age spots to darken and flake off, and facial veins to disappear/darken immediately before being absorbed. Special care should be taken to limit sun exposure to the treated area for at least a week. Sunscreen, and in some cases make-up, may be applied immediately after treatment. It is best to
work with your clinician to determine appropriate post-treatment care.
