When we’re young, we all look great. But as we enter our 40s, we begin to see the differences between people who have taken care of their skin and those who have not. This is why Dr. Chang is a huge fan of facials.
She believes that getting regular facials and maintaining a good home skin care regimen are equivalent to eating right and exercising your body.
What Role Do Facials Play at Beatitude?
Facials are offered at Beatitude to support Dr. Chang’s laser and acne practice. Our facials use the latest aesthetic tools, so they are more results-driven than the European facial or glycolic peel offered in day spas. Many of our clients do maintenance facials, and over time, have seen significant improvement in their skin.
What Kinds of Facials are Available at Beatitude?
Custom Facial – This facial is 45-50 minutes of customized treatment. It could be post laser facial, hydrating or anti-aging focused facial, various acne treatments depending on whether the acne is controlled or active. The esthetician will make a recommendation after examining the client’s skin. Our long-time facial clients have experienced various treatments and often decide for themselves.
What Esthetician Tools are Available?
Our esthetician services utilize many of the latest and best aesthetic tools available including:
HydraFacial – This comprehensive treatment resurfaces your skin through a combination of cleansing, exfoliation, blackhead extractions, and hydration. It includes antioxidants, peptides, hyaluronic acid, and/or glycolic and salicylic acids.
SilkPeel – This microdermabrasion treatment uses patented Dermalinfusion technology that resurfaces the skin and can improve hyperpigmentation, acne, and acne scars.
DermaFrac – This skin rejuvenation treatment uses micro-channeling with vacuum-assisted simultaneous serum infusion, and LED light therapy to improve acne and stimulate collagen production.
Echo Oxygen – This skin care system uses the power of oxygen to reduce the effects of aging and nourish the skin.
LED Lights – LED lights are an effective adjunct to reduce redness and inflammation and to accelerate healing.
Which Chemical Peels are Available at Beatitude?
Chemical peels are a very small niche at Beatitude because we have so many laser options that are more precise treatments with less down time. We do have a few favorite specialty peels, however, such as:
Dr. Obagi ZO 3-Step Stimulation Peel – This peel improves dull skin, rough skin, acne, sun damage, melasma, enlarged pores, and fine lines.
ViPeel Original – ViPeel improves age spots, freckles, melasma, fine lines, acne, and acne scars. It also stimulates collagen production.
ViPeel Acne – This version of the ViPeel is specifically formulated to improve active acne.
Jan Marini Refine Peel – This peel causes a longer period of peeling and flaking of the skin, but the period of down time is still minimal. It includes a unique combination of acids that improves mild acne, fine lines, and pigmentation.
Jan Marini Clarify Peel – Clarify Peel is for people with acne, oily skin, and/or acne scars. It includes lipid soluble salicylic acid and mandelic acid and is safe for darker skin types.
What Additional Esthetician Services are Performed at Beatitude?
Back facials can be done for acne clients. Our add-on services include a chest peel and/or hand peel. Waxing add-on is limited to the face, typically the brow and upper lip. We offer laser hair removal, which is more effective for the rest of the face.
How Much Do Esthetician Services Cost?
Our esthetician services range from $150-$395.
