A-Peel-ing Services at Spa Space
As an acclaimed men’s spa in Chicago, Spa Space is known as the best day spa in Chicago for women and men. One area of services that make Spa Space a best Chicago Spa is its wide variety of peels.
A chemical peel is a procedure in which an acid solution is used to remove dead and damaged upper skin layers to smooth and refine the skin’s texture. When performed by a skilled professional, a chemical peel can safely reduce wrinkles and correct skin tone.
According to DocShop, Chemical peels are typically used to restore a youthful, vibrant appearance to wrinkly, blotchy, sun-damaged skin. There are three main types of chemical face peels, and each has unique benefits for the skin. The light chemical peel improves acne scars and skin texture, and reduces the effects of sun damage. The medium chemical peel improves acne as well. The medium peel also smoothes fine surface wrinkles, and corrects pigment problems such as age spots. The deep chemical peel helps treat sun-damaged skin, eliminates deep, coarse wrinkles, and can remove pre-cancerous growths.
Corrective Peels – Peels not only help reduce all the signs of aging, including sun damage, dullness, and fine; they allow corrective skincare products to penetrate the surface layers of the skin, increasing their effectiveness. Spa Space performs a variety of mechanical and chemical facial peels that create enough superficial “damage” to the skin that a repair-response is triggered, stimulating collagen production and bringing newer, healthier cells to the surface. There is no “downtime” with any of our peels. Peel types include:
Level 1 Peel – After the skin is cleansed and prepared, a gentle-yet-effective glycolic (fruit-based) acid will be applied to the face, removing dead cells and triggering new cell turnover.
Level 2 Peel – Intended for clients who have received peels in the past and “graduated” to tolerate a more intensive peel, our level 2 peels take anti-aging and complexion renewal to the next level.
Brightening Hot Peel (tightening mask) – Your skin will look healthier and tighter. Bring life back to dull, tired skin with serious exfoliation and cellular stimulation.
Pigment Balancing Peel – Combines the exfoliating properties of glycolic acid with the lightening and brightening benefits of Vitamin C to lighten hyperpigmentation, and diminish the appearance of fine lines and dullness.
Microdermabrasion (all skin types, anti-aging, anti-acne (non-cystic)) – The peak of dermatologic innovation – this machine uses crystal particles to blast-off dead skin cells and stimulate cell turnover. Results in smoother, younger-looking skin. Great for treating acne, fine lines, excessively dry skin, sun damage, and surface age spots.
Dermaplaning plus Peel – Using a special hand-held tool, your esthetician will quickly and manually “scrape” the outer layer of skin cells to remove layers of dry, dead skin. This procedure allows the peel (which follows the derma planing) to penetrate deeply, increasing its effectiveness.
So if you’ve decided that a peel is a treatment that you’re ready to have for the first time, or if you’re a veteran of numerous peels, Spa Space is a Chicago spa with an outstanding reputation for quality. Call for an appointment today!
