Damaged skin can be a real confidence killer. They can make you look old but may also leave some unsightly marks on the skin. Glow Medi-Facials help you restore flawless glow and youthful look on your skin by removing the damaged outer layer and leaving behind the smooth flawless texture on the skin.
What are Glow Medi-Facials?
Scientists describe this procedure as a chemical procedure used to make the skin smoother through a chemical solution. The solution makes the skin slough the dead skin hence it ends up peeling making the skin smoother. The Glow Medi-Facials are solutions used to destroy the outer damaged skin cells in a controlled and safe manner. The chemical is administered on the skin surface as a facial peel and is highly recommended for people who have some blemishes, wrinkles and even uneven skin pigmentation.
How Glow Medi-Facials are applied?
Before anything is done on the skin, it is important for one to first identify the type of the skin which they are working on. For example, is it dry or oily? The skin of the patient or outpatient is then cleansed with an agent so as to remove the excess oils on the skin. During this cleansing process, the eyes and the hair are sufficiently protected.
Once this is done, the chemical solutions are then applied on the spots that are scarred or which have blemishes. The range of chemical solutions used can include the glycolic acid, the carbolic acid, the salicylic acid, the lactic acid and the trichloroacetic acid. The chemical solutions introduce a controlled wound that slowly dissolves away the outer damaged skin and allows the regenerated skin to bloom.
The process can take up to two weeks to be complete. People who suffer from cold sores are advised to start by taking antiviral medicines at least two weeks prior to the procedure. If all is well then, one can go ahead and apply Glow Medi-Facials. In any case, the Athena Skin & Laser has tremendous experience in administering the Glow Medi-Facials with great efficacy under the safe pair of hands of Dr. Harmandeep Sidhu.
