Fire & Ice Skin Peel

Chemical Peels and some facial peels can be very aggressive on the Skin. At Qutis we use a more natural, less damaging Skin Peel made by iS Clinical from California. The Fire and Ice Skin Peel is an innovative and powerful facial which is, anti-aging, smoothing, softening and hydrating!

The first stage of the peel consists of a professionally administered rejuvenating masque which is a controlled clinical exfoliating process.

What is a Skin Peel?

This Skin Peel treats and then hydrates your skin, your senses will be awakened by it’s unique warmth and cooling action. This phenomenal system incorporates both active and soothing formulas, which evoke aromas of warm cinnamon spice and brisk cool peppermint.

This peel can be performed weekly at first then once a month to maintain a clear complexion and can be easily combined with other dermal filler treatments. For superb skin healthcare maintenance, the IS Clinical home care products, from California, are available at Qutis.

What ‘Beauty Snob’ Magazine said in a recent review;

I was told this is not a peel even though you get the results of a peel. This facial resurfaces the skin without peeling! The 18% unbuffered glycolic combo is KEY. You must try this! You can thank me later…

I have been using my new beauty regimen from iS Clinical for weeks now and will have the complete 30 day review up next week. I’d wanted to try the masks, too but the iS Clinical rep told me I’d hurt myself if I used the masks at home as they are medical grade products and required the skills of a trained medical aesthetician.  I was referred to EpiCentre Legacy, a medi-spa directed by national and world-renowned local plastic surgeons, to receive the “Fire and Ice” facial.

Upon arrival I was given a complimentary skin care analysis using a Profect US camera (oh my god, so scary– here I thought my skin was flawless but the camera caught sun damage dating back to my teenage years!).  The very knowledgeable Medical Aesthetician, Mickie Shelton, also spent 30 minutes educating me on the difference between IPL, Fraxel and Ablative laser treatments (I don’t know if I’ll ever have the guts to do any of these but will let you know if I do!) before getting me on the table for my facial.

Let me just start by saying that this is not your average frou frou facial with music, dark lighting and candles.  It’s more like a medical treatment; the lights stay on and it’s all very clinical.  After cleaning my face, Mickie applied the first part of the Fire and Ice Facial.  The “Fire” is a Intensive Resurfacing Masque clinically formulated with 18% unbuffered glycolic acid (no fillers means less irritants), lactic acid, citric acid, malic acid, retinol, vitamin B3 and potent antioxidants, including green tea extracts.  I won’t lie, it stung and tingled but was bearable– no screaming or hair pulling on my part.  I also got it on my neck and chest (so important!)– a total of 3-5 minutes is all that is necessary for this peel to work its magic.  Next came the “Ice”– the Rejuvenating Masque is a cool, soothing and intensively hydrating masque containing hyaluronic acid, aloe vera gel, Japanese green tea extracts, licorice extracts, grape seed extracts and rosemary extracts.  This part felt really good, especially since it was 106 degrees outside!  It also tingled but did not hurt, it just felt really really cold on my face.
The entire treatment took about 20 minutes and my skin was amazingly tight and firm afterwords– I felt like I had just gotten a face lift.  Three of my friends commented on my skin this week and they’re all planning to try this facial, too.  I have never had a chemical peel before and I’m so glad I waited until I found the iS Clinical facial.  You must try this!
