PEELS WITH PCA
Regular maintenance with PCA peel treatments rejuvenates skin by breaking bonds that hold dead skin cells together. By speeding up the natural exfoliation process, peels significantly improve texture and pigment problems and reveal a glowing and more radiant complexion. These peels will effectively help to reduce the depth of surface lines, smooth out rough skin texture, help fade brown spots and assist in clearing acne/blemished skin. Élan certified skin technicians recommend a chemical peel once a month for best results.
SENSITIVE SKIN TREATMENT
Élan's sensitive skin treatment is formulated primarily for ethnic skin, and other extremely sensitive skin types. Our skin technicians will strengthen, brighten, and lighten the skin while treating sun damage and other forms of hyperpigmentation (photodamage). This multi-faceted treatment also provides anti-inflammatory, anti-acne, and antibacterial action, making it an excellent choice for helping calm rosacea, as redness and inflammation can subside substantially after treatment.
Our acne treatment is specifically designed by exfoliating and drawing impurities out of the skin while introducing vitamins, enzymes and nutrients into the skin. This treatment is also great for smoothing the skin, as the naturally occurring salicylic acid removes the dead surface cells that cause rough texture. The skin will have a healthy glow following this treatment. Most people require ongoing treatments, which depend on the severity of the skin. With continuing treatments, you can achieve excellent results. Élan's skin technicians will design a home care regime specifically for your skin's needs.

Élan's advanced hydrating treatment will produce a tightening and brightening effect. It is a cream mask containing natural phytohormones which plump, hydrate and moisturize aging skin.
