To maintain a youthful complexion, you must ensure that your skin has a high rate of cellular turnover.

Get Back Your Youthful Glow

Without sufficient skin cell turnover, the dead skin cells will accumulate in your pores, leading to an increased risk of acne breakouts, textural irregularities, and dull skin. As you grow older, your skin’s natural turnover rate slows down, leading to dull and dry skin. Cutella Medical Spa provides highly personalized facials and chemical peels in San Antonio to exfoliate the uppermost layers of the skin, stimulate cellular regeneration, and revitalize your complexion.

What are Facials?

Facials are skincare treatments that usually include steam, exfoliation, extraction, facial masks, massage, and the application of skincare products. The cosmetic provider uses steam to open up the pores, following which special techniques are used to slough way the uppermost layers of the skin. The cosmetic provider also removes all the debris, dead skin cells, oil residue, and impurities from the pores, following which a unique combination of skincare products is applied to your skin. The specific details of a facial vary from one individual to the next.

What are Chemical Peels?

Chemical peels are skin rejuvenation treatments that involve the application of chemicals that exfoliate the uppermost layers of your skin. Depending on your unique needs, the cosmetic provider may apply a skincare solution consisting of salicylic acid, glycolic acid, trichloroacetic acid, or carbolic acid. The type of acid used determines the strength of the treatment. Chemical peels in San Antonio make the uppermost layers of your skin peel away, thus revealing the smoother, softer, healthier, and more youthful skin underneath.

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Skin laxity and sagging skin
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Textural irregularities

Facials & Peels: What’s the Difference?

Facials generally use serums and cosmetic products to extract blackheads, clean pores, remove dead skin cells, and moisturize the skin. Chemical peels use advanced, medical-grade chemical solutions to strip away the uppermost layers of your skin, thus revealing smoother and healthier skin underneath. Both facials and peels focus on revitalizing your complexion, but chemical peels produce more dramatic results. Your medical provider will determine if you’re a candidate for facials or chemical peels after a thorough evaluation of your skin.

Side Effects & Recovery

Facials are comfortable with no side effects, complications, downtime, or activity restrictions. But chemical peels may cause mild redness, swelling, and tenderness of the skin for a few hours. Your skin will also be more sensitive to the sun, so you should avoid direct sunlight for a week. Most patients can resume their daily activities the day after the chemical peel, but strenuous workouts should be avoided for a week. Your medical provider for your chemical peel in San Antonio will offer a comprehensive list of aftercare guidelines.
