A Chemical Peel Issaquah Washington For Clear Bright Skin

A chemical peel involves the application of various types of chemical solutions that are effective in removing the outer layers of damaged or dead skin cells. Chemical peels are incredibly beneficial for the improvement of skin conditions such as acne, rosacea, hyper-pigmentation, and photoaging. They can be used on the face, eyes, lips, neck, chest, hands, arms, legs, feet, and back.  After a chemical peel, the skin feels smooth and rejuvenated with a youthful appearance. Chemical skin peels have been found to be highly effective in the treatment of mild to severe acne, sun damage, wrinkling, and skin discoloration. There are a variety of skin peels specifically designed to treat different types of skin conditions.

Chemical Peel Issaquah Washington

Anyone who would like to improve the appearance of their skin will benefit from a chemical skin peel. This is an amazing treatment that can improve the texture, clarity, and tone of the skin by removing sun spots, melasma, age spots, reducing pore size and softening age lines and wrinkles.  The chemicals are designed to stimulate the production of elastin and collagen, making the skin look firmer and younger.

The key ingredients in a chemical peel are Retinoic Acid that causes peeling and unclogs pores while boosting the production of elastin and collagen.
Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that mitigates the damaging effects of the sun from UV exposure and also removes toxins.
Hydroquinone is a bleaching agent that counteracts pigmentation and melisma and exfoliates the skin for a glowing skin tone.
Kojic Acid brightens the complexion and counteracts discoloration of the skin.
Hydrocortisone fights inflammation and stress, soothes the skin, and reduces redness.

The treatment is virtually pain-free, and the treatment takes only 20 minutes with slight redness. It works best on the face, chest, neck, legs, and arms.

Precision treatments are available with the same synergistic blend of active ingredients at a higher concentration that is up to 25% stronger. Precision treatments are an excellent addition to the treatment of stubborn melasma, age spots, or actinic keratosis. For acne related problems Benzoyl Peroxide is added to fight bacteria and clear blocked pores. Salicylic Acid speeds up the shedding of the cells of the epidermis, opening up the pores and neutralizing bacteria.

At Chemical Peel Issaquah Washington we will surprise you with excellent results whether you simply want to brighten and lighten your skin tone, or whether you have more serious issues like acne and hyper-pigmentation.

Love and Lupus

Love is patient, love is kind.. 

I have a confession to make. I was not in a loving marriage, nor one that was supportive in the realm of handling chronic illness. Rest assured, he grasped, to some degree, that I wasn’t feeling well, but 1) never came to terms with what SLE is and how it affects you 2) that it wasn’t something that could go away with “proper hydration” or just exercising more.

I can’t tell you how many times I was told that “if you just drink more water,” “if you just exercised more,” everything would be okay. He went as far as to accuse me of doctor shopping for a diagnosis, using it to get out of social functions (when do I even turn down a good time when I’m feeling good?), and using the illness for attention, the latter of which  I find rather sick and highly disturbed.

Another confession: I was not strong enough to leave him. He left me. He was “tired of babysitting me,” after he hurt my back and I was in too much pain to eat. I find it a little funny that, on the day he left and told me those words, he slept in till 12. I had been up at 8 to take care of the farm, clean the kitchen, and fix breakfast. Back busted and all.

So many people ask me, “Why in the world did you stay with him so long!?” Well, there are a couple of answers for that. None of which are very good reasons for staying in a destructive relationship, but they were mine, nonetheless:

1) I believe in the sanctity of marriage. Really, really, believe in it. And it’s really important to me.

2) We’ve known each other since 4th grade. The man who hurt me was not the man I married, nor the one I went to school with. It’s hard to give up on someone when you know what they were like before making such a drastic change.

3) I’m stubborn. I don’t like to give up on people, especially someone I’ve committed to never giving up on through marriage vows.

In many ways, it seems that the stress of being in a dangerous and unpredictable relationship exacerbated your lupus. I started getting sick when he was overseas, shortly after he started becoming very verbally abusive. And it was all downhill from there.

Today: Despite the hell that the last 3 years have been, I’m doing really well and am genuinely happy. I’ve known girls who have been through what I’ve been through – and they’re angry, mean, bitter people. I will never let what happened to define me, how I look at and love others, or allow me to become in any way an angry person. To stay angry would prove nothing, help no one, and only hurt the people I love and myself. Life will go on. I’m not sad its over – I’m relieved and ready to move on with my life toward a more healthy, happy, and fulfilled future.


1) Don’t ever let someone you love hurt you.

2) Don’t ever let someone you love make you feel less of a person because of your illness.

3) If someone you love is doing any of the above, it might be worth your while to consider whether that relationship is worth staying in.
