At Sacred Hour, we are dedicated to supporting your well-being. We continually look to add new products and services to our menu that will ensure you you leave our space feeling relaxed and nourished on every level. Beyond massages, we offer a number of skincare services from full facials that include a series of services designed to address different skin needs to single-step services such as peels and microdermabrasion that target specific problem areas.
Among our facial services is the glycolic acid peel which aims to remove dead skin buildup, smooth fine lines and wrinkles, reduce the appearance of discolorations and brighten skin tone. This is a mild chemical peel that works great for people who have acne, mild sun damage or light age lines.
When you schedule a peel service, our aesthetician will work with you to put together a skincare plan that will address your specific needs and guarantee that the peel is appropriate for your skin type and condition. After a consultation, the peel solution will be applied. The length of time it sits on your skin will depend on your skin needs. There is little to no discomfort during or after the peel. Your skin may tingle or feel prickly during the peel and your skin may flake slightly in the days following. Therefore, you’ll be advised to avoid sunlight and use sun protection because your skin will be sensitive during this healing time. Due to this, you may want to plan peels at least a week prior to any significant event.
Depending on your skin type and condition, it may take several peels to see results. And, while results will vary by individual, many clients note brighter skin following their first peel.
If you’re interested in finding out more about the glycolic acid peel, schedule a 15-minute consultation or make an appointment with Rachel or Maureen.
