The Benefits of Facial Chemical Peels

Many factors contribute to the health and appearance of your skin. Diet, genetics, age, the environment, and your daily skin care routine determine how well your skin looks. Facial chemical peels are a great way to rejuvenate your skin and give it a boost. People with both normal and problem skin can benefit from regular facial peels.

What Is a Chemical Peel?
A chemical peel is an acid-based solution that is applied to the skin to remove the damaged upper layer of skin. Chemical peels help to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, acne scarring, sun damage, uneven pigmentation, freckles, and rough patches. Chemical peels are generally used on the face, although they can be used on other areas of the body, such as your hands and neck.

One of the most common types of chemical peels is an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) peel. The active agent in an AHA peel is glycolic acid, which is a naturally occurring enzyme found in milk, sugar cane, and tomato juice.

Procedure for Facial Chemical Peels
Your Aesthetician will determine the correct formulation of the chemical peel most suitable to your needs. She will cleanse your skin with a gentle facial wash and then apply the chemical peel solution to your skin. The peel is left to work on your skin for the prescribed amount of time, generally anywhere from 10-30 minutes. You may feel some warmth and tingling from the solution as it works its way into your skin, but it is a generally painless procedure. After the appropriate amount of time, your practitioner will rinse the solution off your face and apply a light lotion to sooth your skin and promote healing. You may experience slight reddening and sensitivity over the next day or two, so treat your skin gently. Always apply a moisturizer after cleansing, and avoid direct sunlight.
Several treatments are generally recommended for optimal results, spaced at least a week or two apart

Benefits of Monthly Facials

Whether you're battling oily skin, can't keep breakouts under control, or just want to maintain that healthy, youthful look, a professional facial at the day spa could be all you need to achieve your skin goals. You don't have to get a spa facial just before a special event. Think of these facials like a massage for your skin. The deep-cleansing, exfoliating, and pampering session will stimulate circulation and can boost production of collagen--the compound you need for soft, healthy, and plump-looking skin. Getting these professional skin treatments just once a month can improve your skin in more ways than one.
Here are just a few benefits of getting monthly facials at the day spa.

Extractions and Deep Pore Cleansing
Clarisonic Pro Deluxe Professional 4-Speed Skin Care SystemEven though you can deep-clean your pores at home with a good facial buffing tool such as the Clarisonic Pro, $169.99,, it can be hard to do your own extractions and get rid of blackheads. Spa facials include a deep cleansing and steaming session to dilate your pores and purge out toxins. The aesthetician then can go in and extract those blackheads and even some whiteheads to give you a clearer complexion. This step is followed by toner and then moisturizer.

Rehydrates the Skin
If your skin always seems dehydrated, a good steaming and masking session at the spa can rehydrate the skin in a flash. Many aestheticians use some type of hydrating mask as part of the facial treatment, and these can be very effective for restoring lost moisture and plumping up the skin. You'll notice a difference immediately, and this alone can be a great refresher after a stressful week

Stimulates Collagen Production
Most day spa facials include a gentle facial massage, in which the aesthetician can massage out tension around the jaw line and forehead as well as stimulate circulation. The combination of pressure to the skin and products used during the facial treatment can help boost collagen production. This means your skin will grow back healthier and more toned.

Finally, recognize that a monthly facial is an investment in your own well-being. Try not to squeeze it in between appointments, find a way to make sure that you can do something fun and relaxing afterwards. If your facial is the only ‘me-time’ you’ve got, make it count.

Want longer, thicker and fuller eyelashes?

The solution..... LAVISH LASHES!!
What Are Lavish Lashes?
Lavish Lashes is a revolutionary new product that lengthens and thickens eyelashes. Lavish Lashes semi-permanent eyelash extensions are individual synthetic lashes that are designed to replicate a natural eyelash. Each polished eyelash extension is curved with a thicker base that gradually narrows to a point. They are applied to individual eyelashes, one eyelash extension at a time, to extend and thicken your client's eyelashes. The result is a set of long, luscious yet natural appearing eyelashes. Lavish Lashes eyelash extensions are perfect for special occasions as well as everyday wear.
What do they look like and how do they feel?
With proper application, Lavish Lashes look and feel completely real.
How long do Lavish Lashes last?
When applied properly, semi-permanent Lavish Lashes can last up to a month, depending on the natural growth cycle of your natural eyelashes. Most clients will want touch-ups every two to three weeks. Lavish Lashes High Performance Bonding Agent is specially formulated with a unique waterproof bonding agent to last longer than most other adhesives. You will find that the right bonding agent is of critical importance. Lavish Lashes High Performance Bonding Agent has just the right blend of properties, including safety, bond strength, drying speed, lack of odor and maximum shelf life.

Can I swim, shower, exercise, or visit a spa while wearing Lavish Lashes?
Yes. Our specially formulated bonding agent allows you to shower, swim, exercise, sleep and spa worry-free while wearing Lavish Lashes. You can enjoy these lashes with little need to adjust your lifestyle. Please do not swim or spa for 48 hours after the procedure to allow the bonding agent to fully cure.
How are the Lavish Lashes applied?
 Lavish Lashes are applied one lash at a time to your individual natural eyelashes to achieve long, thick and natural looking eyelashes. The procedure involves bonding the synthetic extension to your own natural eyelashes.
How often should I get touch-ups?
We recommend getting a touch up every two to three weeks. A natural eyelash falls off every 60 to 90 days on average due to the natural growth cycle and is naturally replaced with the growth of a new eyelash. At any given moment, each of your natural eyelashes is at a different stage of its life cycle. A touch up is needed to replenish the lashes that have completed their life cycle.

Can I apply mascara to Lavish Lashes?
Indeed, one of the main advantages of Lavish Lashes is never needing mascara again. However, if you must have the mascara look, only water based mascara can be used. DO NOT USE OIL-BASED OR WATER-PROOF MASCARA. Waterproof mascara along with any type of oil based mascara will dissolve the bonding agent and cause the Lavish Lashes to fall off.

How do I take care of Lavish Lashes?

 Your new Lavish Lashes are long, thick and beautiful! Once applied, they last up to one month. Best of all, they are easy to maintain. To maintain this look and extend the life of your lashes, follow these easy care instructions: Do not wash eyes or shower for 24 hours after lash application. Do not swim or spa for 48 hours after lash application to allow adequate time for bonding. Be gentle with your lashes. Avoid rubbing your eyes. Avoid oil-based and waterproof mascara. Water based mascara and water based mascara remover may be used. Use mascara sparingly and gently remove mascara with water-based eye makeup remover. Apply mascara on the tips only.
Who uses Eyelash Extensions?
Hollywood has long since enjoyed extending their beauty with Eyelash Extensions. Models and actors have been using eyelash extensions for years

Tired of the "peach fuzz" around your face?

We have the solution.... Dermaplaning!

What is dermaplaning? Dermaplaning is a manual, non-invasive, skin resurfacing procedure that uses a special surgical scalpel blade to remove the top layers of dead skin cells. Dermaplaning can be performed on parts of the face, the entire face, or anywhere on the body. It improves the appearance of acne-scarred skin and smooths out facial wrinkles on the upper layers of the face. It is also an excellent treatment for melasma and environmentally damaged skin. Dermaplaning is an alternative to waxing and depilatories for removing unwanted facial hair, including vellus (light) hair or “peach fuzz” which is difficult to treat with light therapy or lasers. Facial hair does not grow back darker and thicker, but returns slowly and becomes sparser with each treatment.

Your dermaplaning treatment will last 30-45 minutes. During your treatment, your provider will hold your skin taught with one hand while gently scraping the scalpel blade against the skin. You will feel little to no discomfort. Immediately after your treatment, your skin will feel soft and smooth, and look radiant.

Because dermaplaning exposes the top layers of the epidermis, it creates a more efficient response from other photrejuvenation treatments or resurfacing procedures. Facial skin treatments can also be more effectively absorbed and can penetrate deeper following a dermaplaning treatment. Dermaplaning is appropriate for every skin type, especially those with hypersensitive skin that cannot tolerate other traditional methods of exfoliation.

Dermaplaning Facial Treatment

This gentle treatment improves dull, ruddy complexions by gently removing the top layer of dry and sun-damaged skin cells. This also removes the “peach fuzz” resulting in baby smooth skin.
Skin & Beyond Day Spa is one of the leading providers of dermaplaning in Franklin, Tennessee. For more information or to make an appointment, request a consult online or call the spa at (615) 794-5282 and we will be happy to discuss your needs further.

Benefits of the Lumifacial & Lumilift Photorejuvenation Treatments

About The Treatments:

The Soli-Tone is a unique skin rejuvenation device that uses light therapy and special currents to turn back the clock on aging, sun-damaged skin, minor acne, redness, and uneven pigmentation. This multi-platform system features two distinct facial treatments: TheLumiLift® and the LumiFacial®. Simultaneous application of these technologies enhances their individual effectiveness, promoting cellular rejuvenation from within. Results are immediate and visible.
How does the LumiFacial® treatment work? (panel portion)
The LumiFacial® targets common skin problems; such has acne, redness, and uneven pigmentation. During the treatment, a wrap-around facial panel is positioned in above your face. The physician or technician selects the specific Light energy required for your skin type and condition. At the end of the treatment, the technician will apply specialty products using a polarized current. This final step enhances the penetration of these products and promotes their efficacy. You can immediately return to your normal routine with no redness or peeling.
What is exactly the LumiLift® procedure?
The LumiLift® procedure is a revolutionary way of rejuvenating the skin and lifting sagging muscles. It is performed with two (2) special electrodes that feature an advanced application of Micronized current, HF polarized current and light energy. (See pictures above)
During the LumiLift® treatment, a pulsating light is directed at the skin surface. Light passes through the layers of the skin and penetrates into the dermis. This powerful light stimulates the fibroblast cell to produce more collagen. The increase production of collagen smoothes and softens the appearance of wrinkles, reduces the size of pores, and improves skin texture. At the same time, the electrodes emit Micronized currents to tone and life sagging muscles.
At the end of the treatment, an antioxidant product is infused into your skin using two special electrodes to smooth away facial creases.

What are Micronized currents?

Micronized currents are non-invasive. They stimulate and resemble the biological currents that your body produces to tighten muscles. Extensive clinical research has shown that these currents are able to lift and tone the muscles. Most systems do not address the muscular layer. This layer atrophies as a result of intrinsic aging and must be addressed, not just the tissue alone. This is what makes this system so unique and effective.
Combining Light Therapy with Micronized currents erases years from the appearance of your skin without the use of drastic and painful surgical procedures. LumiLift® restores a natural, youthful appearance to the skin.
How long will the effects of the LumiLift procedure last?
Improvements continue for a minimum of three (3) months after a single session. Results are cumulative as fibroblast production CONTINUES to occur as a result of the photo-energy stimulation. After completing a series, depending on the rate of the aging process, changes can last over one year. A good skin care regimen combined with a monthly maintenance treatment is sufficient to enhance and maintain the result of obtain with the LumiLift® treatment.
How does this differ from Microdermabrasion or Peels?
This system is very effective for treating many conditions. However, exfoliation is still "key" to remove the dead skin cell layers to promote a healthy glow, allow for greater product penetration, and to renew the very outer layer of the skin. Facials, Peels or Microdermabrasion are still highly recommended at 4 week intervals in order to generate newer healthier skin cells. Both stimulate collagen product and improve skin texture. They compliment and improve the efficacy of the photo rejuvenation system.
The following treatments take 30 minutes to an hour depending on # of areas treated and skin condition.

Your Treatment Options:
LumiLift® Treatment, ideal for lifting face, eyes, and chest. Minimizes lines and wrinkles and lifts and tones the facial contours. Especially effective for sagging jowls and naso-labial folds.
LumiFacial® treatments for face, chest or back areas can address the following:
  • Minor Acne
  • Uneven Pigmentation
  • Redness
  • Photo-aging
The results below are clients that have done a series of 6-12 Treatments, with a combination of Peels, Microdermabrasion, Dermaplaning or Facials and they continue to maintain with the Skin Care Products Prescribed by the Aesthetician.

The Benefits of the Body Contour Wrap

What are the benefits of the Body Contour Wrap Program?

  • It cleanses the liquid waste system.
  • Aids in the removal of cellulite by softening, breaking down and freeing trapped toxins and waste materials in the connective tissues through normal body functions.
  • Stimulates circulation to aid in healing areas of problems due to poor circulation.
  • Creates circulation through a niacin-based cream.
  • Uses plastic wrap to help hold in heat, and creates pressure on the toxic areas to act as acupressure to stimulae lymphatic flow.
  • Reduces water retention.
  • Tightens and tones the skin.
  • Helps a client to lose one half dress or pant size per treatment.
  • Is critical to any health program. (Particularly Fibromyalgia, Candida, Weight Loss, or any other health issue that involves a depleted immune system)
  • Works in conjuction with any nutritional program (Ask us about our 24 Day Challenge program), as it enables a person to lose excess inches while losing weight--- One wrap minimum is suggested for every 10 pounds lost.
  • Uses a wrap that offers permanent inch loss through body cleansing, not a weight loss wrap or a water loss wrap.

SALT SOLUTIONS, MINERAL SALT WRAPS, SEAWEED WRAPS AND LIQUID HERBAL WRAPS- All promote toxins and water to come out through the pores internally to externally. Though there is a detoxification benefit, these processes dehydrate and age the skin by water loss. If there is an immediate weight loss after a wrap, this indicates that it is a water loss wrap. With an internal cleanse wrap there is no weight loss for at least 72 hours. With a water loss wrap, you may be required to wear a rubber suit or booties to promote sweat and catch the body hydration. These wraps are generally messy, uncomfortable and the inches come back as you ingest liquids again to replace hydration.

CLAY WRAPS-  Act as a poultice to draw impurities, from the skin. A dehydrating wrap that tends to age the skin due to dehydration.. This is also an internal to external detoxification.

THIGH CREAMS- The main ingredient is aminophyllin. This chemical is an asthma medication, which was formulated to shrink mucous membranes so the patient could breathe. It does exactly the same externally, shrinking the cells of any moisture. The treatment is a water loss, dehydration, and the most damaging of all cellulite treatments, as it is putting a chemical into the body's blood stream.

OUR INTERNAL CLEANSING WRAPS- Our Body Contour Wrap uses herbal formulations that work externally to internally. This type of program aids in the removal of wastes that have become trapped in vulnerable parts of our bodies. It is simply a cleansing process of the tissue underneath the skin, and helps restore elasticity to loose, flabby skin. It does not dehydrate and age the skin. This is the healthies type of wrap.


A series of 3 to 6 body wraps is recommended. We have special spa packages or a membership program available!

A Good nutritional program such as the 24 day challenge is recommended. (We will give you a grocery list and meal plan. Eating cleansing foods such as fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins are very important for results to last rather than eating clogging foods, chemicals and empty calories)

Daily exercise is always recommended to encourage circulation and overall health.

There should be 4 to 7 days between each wrap. If a client is overweight and on a weight loss program,a wrap is suggested for each 5 to 10 pounds lost.

Guarantee of 4 to 14 inches lost in 1 hour. This is not a weight loss wrap, but a permanent inch loss. The inches will only return if the client goes back to old habits. Eating the right types of foods, proper exercise and drinking at least 8 glasses of water per day are always recommended.

Steps of the Body Contour Wrap

The M'lis Professional Contour Wrap may be used in two ways: for inch loss, or for detoxification and lymphatic cleansing. This amazing wrap does both for the body. The contour body wrap helps to free and remove trapped waste in the connective tissue, eliminating internal disfiguring deposits and stimulate inch loss. Wraps are often sold in a series of treatments to maximize inch loss and cleansing. The contour cream helps stimulate the lymphatic circulation while the plastic wrap acts as an acupressure to push the lymphatic fluid up into the thoracic valve, circulating the toxins back into the blood stream to get filtered out through the liver and the kidneys, promoting permanent inch loss.
This 60-90 minute process is not a water loss, as clients do not sweat, and does not contain chemicals or dehydrating ingredients. Clients may wear their own swimwear or a spa bra and panties (short swim trunks for men).
  • Step one: Exfoliation through Buff Body Scrub
  • Step two: Measurements taken at several points on the body (this step is often skipped when the wrap is being used for detoxification and cleansing as part of a Lifestyle Change Program)
  • Step three: Application of Contour Cream by a trained technician
  • Step four: Wrap using a plastic film that helps to contour and tighten
  • Step five: Relax for 60 minutes on a comfortable treatment table. Many spas offer reflexology, a facial, or a hand and foot massage in combination with the wrap that may be done during this step.
  • Step six: Cut out of wrap
  • Step seven: Rub in any remaining cream
  • Step eight: Re-measure in same points
  • Step nine: Client is dressed and on their way. Clients should not shower for the rest of the day to allow the cream to continue working. As there has been internal cleansing, at least half of a person's weight in ounces of water should be consumed to help flush toxins and waste from the body to maximize results.

Why Detoxify?

The only way that toxins are eliminated from the body is through the natural processes of detoxification, which occurs through the skin by perspiration, through the colon by evacuation, through the kidneys by urination, and through the lungs by respiration. When the body has accumulated more toxins than it can handle, the body in its amazing natural healing process attempts a healing response. It must force the toxins out or the body will disease and die.
Toxins are eliminated out of body openings (eyes, ears, nose, rectum, urinary tract and skin). When you have a common cold, you observe mucus, pus, and fluids coming out of every opening of the body. This fluid contains toxic poisons, bacteria, and dead or damaged cells and tissues. The removal of toxin is not an illness or a disease, it is a biological cleansing process done naturally by the body. If toxins are suppressed by the chemical stuffing of symptoms, the body begins to store them. The toxins go deep into the cells and tissues and begin to cause degenerative damage, leading to lethargy, sickness, and eventually to life threatening disease.
A person finally passes the point where the body no longer has the ability to cleanse and heal itself. Cells begin to die in body organs, glands and systems. Detoxification helps to reverse this process by enabling the body to rid itself of these toxins and other trapped waste materials. For a person in good basic health, detoxification on a regular basis will help prevent illness and degenerative disease. For those with health problems, detoxification will allow the body to heal, naturally and without continuing the cycle of chemical stuffing of symptoms.
