Fresh Healthy Skin Is Just
A Layer Beneath The Surface!
Our Aesthetician will cleanse the treatment area to remove makeup and debris.
Enzyme: The peel is applied in a circular motion to exfoliate the dead skin cells. The enzymes will be left on the face for 10 to 30 minutes depending on the type used. After the appropriate time, the enzyme is washed off with warm water and a moisturizer is applied.
Chemical: The peel is applied lightly onto the skin being treated using a sponge, cotton pad, swab, or brush (avoiding your brows, eyes and lips). During peel application, you may experience a slight tingling (light to medium peels) or a burning sensation (deep peels). The length of time the solution is allowed to work is determined by carefully observing the changes in the appearance of your skin. The solution is then neutralized and washed off.
Post treatment will depend on the depth of peel and type used.

Enzyme: made from fruit enzymes. A milder type of peel that is gentle and effective.
Chemical: made from various fruit acids. This type gives you a deeper exfoliation.
These procedures have little to no down time. Precaution should be used to avoid intense sunlight for up to a week following the procedures with liberal use of sunscreen and moisturizer.
The End Result
We recommend a peel to accelerate the natural exfoliation process which will keep your skin looking fresh.
For those with sensitive skin or minor issues an enzyme peel produces the following results:
Controls acne, shrinks pores, and removes blackheads
Diminishes fine lines and wrinkles, and some scarring
Reduces age spots and redness
For those with more severe issues the chemical peel is best when it comes to:
Diminishing fine lines and wrinkles
Smoothing pigmentation and acne scars
Shrinking large pores
Tightening sagging skin
Depending on your skin type and need we can help find a treatment that is right for you.
Why Peels Work
In our youth, skin cells naturally turn-over every 18 to 20 days resulting in a healthy, glowing look. As we grow older, this process slows down giving us a dull appearance.
Chemical peels promote cell turnover, which helps slow the appearance of aging. It also aids in improving acne, allows skincare products to work better, and helps with pigment.
At Lumera we have several chemical peels that can be customized to meet the needs of your skin type and condition.
Is the procedure painful?
Depending on the type of peel and depth of treatment the sensation can range from a slight tingling to a mild burning.
What does the peeling do?
It removes the top layer(s) of skin to expose rejuvenated underlying dermal layer. This can range from gentle exfoliation to deep removal of damaged skin.
How long does it take?
That depends on the type of treatment you want. The overall treatment can last anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour. The more intensive the treatment, the longer it takes.
How is urinary incontinence diagnosed?
The condition is diagnosed mainly on the pattern of symptoms. Keeping a urinary diary (a record of daily urination, urine accidents and fluid intake) can help your health care provider determine patterns and establish the working diagnosis. The provider will also ask questions about your general health, your history of incontinence, past surgeries, illnesses and any medication you're taking. A physical examination, including a pelvic exam, will be done, and a urine sample will be tested.
Sometimes other, more complicated tests may be needed to establish or confirm the diagnosis or to guide treatment.
How does incontinence relate to age?
Incontinence should not be considered to be a normal condition of aging. Elderly patients should be evaluated in essentially the same way that patients of any age should be evaluated. Incontinence is certainly more common as patients age, but incontinence can be seen in children, adolescents, and adults.
Why should I care about my bladder control problem?
People often live with incontinence without seeking help. Many cases can be cured or controlled with appropriate treatment. Urinary incontinence is the second leading cause of institutionalizing elderly people. The problem can contribute to decreased socialization, decreased quality of life and depression. Getting up at night to urinate also increases the risk of falling and fracturing a hip.
