Urban Skin Solutions Newbie

Skincare is such an important component of being a fatshionista. Underneath that beat face it's crucial to have flawless skin. I've always had issues with my skin - dryness, acne scars, and hyper pigmentation. I visited Urban Skin Solutions, Charlotte’s first skin and laser center specializing in the treatment and care of diverse skin tones, for a consultation in which I learned so much about my skin. The esthetician I worked with was so sweet, professional, and extremely knowledgeable. I received a custom microdermabrasion and chemical peel. This my first time ever getting a facial and after the microdermabrasion, I noticed how much brighter my skin was. Following the microdermabrasion, I received a light chemical peel. This process was a tad uncomfortable because it tingled on my cheeks, but a cool fan solved that issue. Both of these services combined will yield great results because they are getting rid of the dead layers of skin. I'll track my progress on Instagram as my skin peels over the next few days. I received some amazing Urban Skin Rx at-home products to create a daily regiment. You can purchase all of these products in office!

Here's a cool time lapse video to capture the process of getting a microdermabrasion:

So what's a microdermabrasion? It is a professional non-surgical exfoliation treatment that will reduce the signs of aging, smooth the texture of the skin, and fade discolorations. Microdermabrasion is performed with a jet of fine crystals, which are propelled and then vacuumed across the skin's surface, removing the damaged cells to reveal fresh, invigorated skin.

Chemical peels are topically applied acids that aid in the restoration and rejuvenation of the skin’s surface. They create an even and controlled shedding of several layers of skin, reducing blotchy and uneven pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, freckling, age spots, sun-damaged skin, acne and acne scars in a relatively short period of time. Chemical peels stimulate the production of new cells revealing fresh, smoother skin.
