CHEMICAL PEELS FROM $95 TO $400
What is the main purpose of a chemical peel? The answer is to create a “controlled” burn, which is a wound. The wound suffered by the skin triggers the healing process which is instrumental in creating new skin cells at a very rapid rate and also stimulating the synthesis of new collagen and elastin which is why we talk about fresh looking skin, softening of lines and wrinkles and tightening of skin after a peel. This is a small sample of the facial peels offered at Therapy World Medical Spa.
After a chemical peel, you are advised not to expose your skin to the sun for at least a week and thereafter you need to use a professional SPF30 or above. We will not perform a peel if your immune system is comprised.

Dermaplaning is an excellent method for achieving a more intense exfoliation. Dermaplaning involves using a medical blade at an angle to exfoliate the topical layer of dead cells called corneocytes. This is an advantageous protocol because it not only removes superficial dead skin allowing news cells to surface but also removes unwanted hair, albeit, temporarily. It may cause some redness, especially in someone with sensitive skin, but this subsides in an hour or so. It is not recommended for active pustular acneic skin.
Dermaplaning is a great option for those clients who are actively using aggressive topicals, example Retin-A, Retinols, Glycolic acid or high strength Salicylic acids on a home care routine. It not only accelerates and aids in the sloughing off of the dead skin but is a great alternative to waxing which could literally rip areas of the skin, particularly in cases of prolonged usage of exfoliating agents such as Retin-A.
Microdermabrasion was developed in 1987 in Italy and was introduced to the USA in the mid 1990s. It is a great tool for aestheticians in performing mechanical exfoliation for cellular regeneration and lifting superficial hyper-pigmentation. The older machines have micro-crystals (aluminum oxide or sodium chloride) which abrades the superficial layers of the skin. Due to the controversy related to the inhaling of aluminum particles and the inefficiency of sodium chloride as an effective exfoliant, manufacturers introduced diamond and sapphire grit tips to eliminate those shortcomings.
SAPPHIRE 3 PHOTO-ABRASION
Therapy World uses crystal-free devices that utilize sapphire and diamond tips for exfoliation. The Sapphire 3 Microdermabrasion system is a crystal-free machine that has diamond and sapphire tips for different types of skin and body areas that need exfoliation. The results of this exfoliating service are absolutely incomparable to any microdermabrasion treatment that you might have had with any other system. This is followed by a Red LED with micro-current for lifting and collagen synthesis and finally the Blue LED for oxygenating skin which acts as an anti-bacterial and anti-aging support.
LED LIGHT THERAPY
LED Light Therapy is a completely safe, non-invasive, non-thermal service which uses Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) to emit safe light that is absorbed by the skin, stimulating natural rejuvenation and resulting in glowing, radiant skin.
A complex interaction of red, blue, amber and green light delivered through LEDs has been proven to dramatically increase cellular function, improve the skin turgor and elasticity, reduce acne breakouts and minimize the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Services are painless and all skin colors and conditions can benefit effectively. The number of services will vary depending on skin type, areas of concern, and objectives. A full series is recommended for comprehensive results.
Red: LED for lines and wrinkles Green: LED for Hyperpigmentation
Blue: LED for Acne & Oxygenation Yellow: LED for Anti-Inflammatory
Micro-needling uses a precision engineered medical mechanical pen known as the DERMAPEN that has 12 titanium surgical micro-needles which stamps the top layers of the skin without damaging it. It stimulates collagen production to reduce upper lip wrinkles (smokers lines), minimizes deep facial lines, wrinkles, stretch marks and acne scarring. Micro-needling improves skin with very little down-time and very little discomfort. A consultation is required before this procedure will be performed.

JUVESA ANTI-AGING THERAPY
Juvesa consists of a) diamond microdermabrasion to exfoliate the skin and stimulate new cells. b) light therapy – red for collagen stimulation, blue for acne, and green for hyperpigmentation. c) micro-current therapy for lifting and tightening skin. d) ultrasound therapy to release toxins and also to penetrate precious serums. When the four are combined in one treatment, the anti-aging results are phenomenal.
BIO INFUSION – HYDRA FACIAL
Bio Infusion consists of exfoliation, product infusion and LED light therapy, all of which are provided in this new state-of-art treatment that can help with aging, acne and hyperpigmentation, but specifically targets dehydrated skin. After even one session, the client can see visual hydration and a healthy glow. It is a great complement to our corrective skin care services and can be performed instead of a facial for maintenance purposes.
