This unique treatment uses pure oxygen to minimize the effects of premature aging by stimulating regeneration of new cells to boost the production of collagen and elastin to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and redness. Along with oxygen molecules, Vitamins A, Jojoba oil, Vitamin C and powerful enzymes deliver cell renewal and nourishment while combating UV damage to reveal your skin’s natural beauty.
LightStim LED Therapy
We recommend our LightStim LED Therapy Panel to almost ALL of our clients. Just like plants, our skin and other body tissues have the ability to absorb light and convert it into energy. LightStim LED light therapy delivers light energy in a similar way plants absorb light energy from the sun. LightStim emits UV-free, beneficial light energy to the skin. Our LightStim panel uses three different wavelengths of light to give you incredible results. When this beneficial light is applied directly to the skin it can reduce fine lines and wrinkles, temporarily increase blood circulation, and treat mild to moderate Acne!
Our chemical peels work effectively to remove the cells of the top layer of skin’s upper epidermis by breaking weak chemical bonds that hold together the epidermal skin cells, termed “corneocytes” or “keratinocytes.” Depending on the strength, pH and delivery agent of the peel product, upon application, the skin cells delaminate and lift away. As the peel process proceeds, or upon subsequent treatment, it can penetrate further into the thickness of the epidermis to interact and weaken the bonds holding together the cells of the lower layers of the epidermis. The appearance of new cells replaces aged, hyperpigmented skin. The end result is more cellular bulk, offsetting the epidermal thinning that comes with aging; hydrating skin; and improving color uniformity and smoothness. Hello new cells, goodbye dull skin!
Products with Metadermabolic Enzymes
The fundamental science behind one of our favorite product lines we carry at Spa Kingston, Epicuren, is derived from pharmaceutical enzyme research performed for decades on severely damaged skin ranging from sun damage, burn victims, to other environmental and toxic exposures. This enzyme is an elastin-collagen protein that is combined in a waterborne solution of energizing B vitamins, to create a "protein with intelligence". The catalytic Metadermabolic Enzyme solution communicates with the skin encouraging it to self-rejuvenate, similar to how aerobic exercise supports your metabolism. Continued use dramatically reduces the visible signs of aging: fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, and sagging skin, while improving the complexions overall radiance. Skin will appear vibrant, healthy, and more evenly toned.
Below is the Epicuren Six-Step Facial System products that contain the signature Epicuren enzyme, the core of the Epicuren brand:
