What is Chiral?
Most biomolecules, including skin care ingredients, are chiral. This means they have a "left" and a "right" chemical orientation, much like our hands (chiral, pronounced "ki-rul," is Greek for hands).
Chiral molecules, like our hands, are identical mirror images of each other. Some of these fit into the skins receptors while others do not. Usually only one of the mirror images is beneficial for your skin, so it is necessary to use only these when formulating effective products.
Why I choose CosMedix over other skin care lines....
COSMEDIX Chirally Correct Medical Skin Care was developed in an effort to increase the effectiveness of ingredients, while reducing any associated irritation. This is done through a purification process called "chiral correction." The system is so effective, the FDA mandated that all new pharmaceuticals be chirally corrected when possible, prior to being introduced to the public.
They're dedicated to using the most natural, most effective products on the market. They do not use preservatives (the active ingredients act as natural preservatives), biologicals (ingredients associated with animals or animal testing), artificial colors, synthetic fragrances (only essential oils) or ingredients that test high on the comedogenicity/irritancy scales. Most of the packaging is in the most protective bottling available, opaque glass. This reduces leaching and completely blocks UVA/UVB light.
CosMedix spends more on our ingredients than anyone else in the industry. You will not find a better assortment of enzymes, antioxidants and acids; that when combined, nourish, stimulate and exfoliate while avoiding the toxicity associated with many lines.
Most skin care products use ingredients that don't fit properly into the skin's receptors, and therefore cause irritation or other harmful side effects. Using these impurities is like trying to put a right-handed glove on your left hand, it simply doesn't work.
CosMedix products fit because they are chirally correct. They are more concentrated, more effective and less irritating than any other product available today. This is the future of skin care and the first medical skin care line to take advantage of chiral technology.
What is a peel?
A peel is part of corrective skin care. Peels regenerate the skin, often making it smoother with fewer fine lines and reduced pigmentation. The procedure is sometimes used on other parts of the body, including the neck and hands.
How are the CosMedix peels different?
Traditional chemical peels typically consist of chemical solutions applied to the skin to form flakes or blisters that eventually peel off. This painful process destroys healthy tissue, forcing the body to heal itself. CosMedix's chirally correct, non-traumatic peels succeed by stimulating healthy change. The soothing collagen therapy enhances skin's appearance resulting in a beautiful, renewed complexion.
Tell me more about being chirally correct...
Chirally correct chemical peels are associated with better ingredients, less downtime and fewer unfavorable side effects than other chemical peels. No anesthesia is required for chirally correct chemical peels, and they are safe enough to be repeated bi-monthly.
What kinds of conditions can peels help?
Peels are often used to treat:
- Open and Closed Comedones
- Scarring (non-keloidal scars)
What kind of skin peels are there?
CosMedix offers Chirally Correct Peels categorized as "Today's Peels" and "Tomorrow's Peels".
Today's peels use natural Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA) and Beta Hydroxy Acid (BHA) to freshen and exfoliate the skin by removing dead cells in order to promote new cell growth. These peels can be used without any prior preparation of the skin.
Tomorrow's peels, designed to correct the damage done yesterday, are stronger treatments that go deeper and make the skin look tighter and smoother. The skin needs 10 to 30 days advance preparation prior to application.
What are my next steps?
When considering chemical peels it is important to speak to a licensed professional trained at these types of treatments. You and a skin care professional can determine if chemical peels are right for you.

What exactly is a facial?
Think of a facial as extreme cleaning for your face; while lying on a bed, under covers, in a dimly lit room, with the sounds and smells of relaxation!
Your arms & decollete (upper chest) area will be exposed so I can cleanse, analyze your skin under a magnifying lamp, exfoliate (to remove dead skin cells & give you a glowing complexion), extract open comedones (blackheads....to help give you a smooth complexion), a facial...neck...and shoulder massage (heavenly! You know...the area where you carry all your tension! Bliss!), followed with a moisturizer, eye cream, and spf!
I use AMAZING products...so while it make feel like "fluffy stuff", you're actually receiving skin nutrition! Irritant free, preservative free, fragrance free, and cruelty free, RESULT driven skin care!
What are the benefits of receiving a facial?
A facial can offer many benefits! The face is always subject to the elements such as the sun, maybe smoke or an improper at home regime. Facials offer you the opportunity to work with a professional skin care specialist who will analyze your skin, help you improve your complexion, and show you how to take proper care of your skin.
A facial helps increase circulation and stimulates the skin. It can also help slow down premature aging by custom-targeting your skin care. Facials are a great preventative treatment to help you counteract wrinkles before they occur.
A facial may also help you understand the proper skin care products for your skin. Most people are using chemically overloaded products; which causes the skin to become sensitized. As your aesthetician, I will work with you to create a home care regime that will be both easy to use and work with your individual skin type. In addition to all of these benefits...the bonus is that facials FEEL wonderful and are extremely relaxing; a great stress reducer!
How are your acne facials different from any of the other treatments I've tried?
My treatments are different because I'M DIFFERENT from any of the other treatments you've tried! I'm here to help you find the source of your acne....not only treat the effects! It is definitely a team effort. Acne & breakouts are caused by SOOOOO many different things! It makes no sense for you to keep trying different skin care lines, supplements, laundry detergents - if the source of your acne is an allergic reaction to something you're eating! Or perhaps you're using an over the counter cleanser FULL of chemical irritants & wondering why you have little red bumps all over your face or red cheeks that burn when you put anything on them. This is good news...we can treat this! ;) I promise I'm very gentle & will give you a home care regime to get you on track. I've seen so many different skin conditions over the past 5 + years, but rest assured in knowing most are managed with choosing a proper cleanser & moisturizer. The most common precursors to skin "acne" I've seen...
- Irritating products causing sensitized skin which is not "acne", but may easily be confused with it.
- Improper cleansing techniques or underexfoliation
- Low water consumption (or diet) = improper elimination = congested skin! Especially in cheek area! Our skin is an excretory organ, so whatever is going on inside will most likely present on the face!
Can my uneven skin tone (hyperpigmentation) really be treated?
YES!!! I'm living proof! However, I will tell you this. There is NO QUICK FIX for uneven pigmentation AND it is a constant maintenance! This is not a condition you will be able to treat, it will go away, and never return. You must be proactive in wearing sunblock (non-chemical) and sun barriers to prevent reoccurrence.
I am here to tell you I've tried many different skin care lines, the lighteners, hydroquinone, azaelic acid, glycolic peels, laser treatments, IPL photofacials, and NOTHING WORKED FOR ME! An aesthetician friend of mine wanted to treat my skin with CosMedix Peels. She had me prep with an exfoliating cleanser, an exfoliating toner, a retinol, and a natural lightening serum. After 3 peels everyone around me started to see improvement! I've moved on to giving myself peels and now have beautiful skin! :) However, I speak again from experience....sunblock is not enough to prevent pigmentation from coming back! You must have a second line of defense against UV rays! I now wear a hat to block the sun while doing outdoor activities.
Excess facial hair: what's normal, what's not?
Many women experience excess facial hair to some degree. In my experience I'd say roughly 80% or so are dealing with this behind closed doors. You are not alone! My role as your aesthetician, is to provide hair removal! Please come in for a consultation to find out the best option for you.
Excess androgen (testosterone & dhea) is the hormone responsible for hirsutism. Please consult your doctor to evaluate the cause of your excess androgen.
(it's an older article...but straightforward & gives a detailed explanation, without being too lengthy)
How important is it to wear sunblock?

Melissa thank you so much for all your help clearing my skin!! I've struggled with acne since I was a teenager and have literally tried EVERYTHING out there including acutane and laser treatments, but nothing has helped me clear my skin as well as your peels and the new soap (and i don't wash my towels with Tide anymore just like you said : ) . You're personable and always smiling and you have me always looking forward to my next visit. Thank you for everything...see you in two weeks!!" - Aaron A.
