You know that pumpkin tastes good in a latte and smells wonderful baked into a pie, but have you ever considered slathering it on your skin? Pumpkin packs an impressive amount of nutrients that increase cell turnover and can smooth and brighten your complexion. If you’re looking for a natural way to fight the signs of acne and aging to reveal a confident, beautiful you, say “hello” to pumpkin.
Prior to treatment, we will clean your skin to remove any oil, makeup or dirt. Next, we’ll prime your skin with an acidic base to aid in exfoliation. Then, the pumpkin peel will be applied to your face.
The pumpkin peel will feel warm for a few minutes and then change to a pleasant, tightening feeling. Because a pumpkin peel isn’t as intense as many other peels, there is no downtime following treatment, and you’ll see immediate results! It’s important to moisturize following a pumpkin peel to nourish the new layer of skin that has come to the surface. Radiant skin begins at Catalyst Clinical Spa!
Physical skin peeling is not a requirement for every type of peel which may seem odd given their name. Gentle and intermediate peels, such as the pumpkin peel, in part act as an accelerated or deep exfoliator with the skin immediately after treatment visibly comparable to microdermabrasion results. But the peels provide the added benefits of increased cellular function compared to just mechanical removal of dead skin cells.
If you have acne, a pumpkin peel is a great way to stimulate circulation and promote healing without the use of chemicals, which can irritate sensitive skin. The key ingredients in a pumpkin peel are formulated to penetrate deep into your pores to remove debris and dissolve dead skin cells, all while strengthening collagen beneath the skin’s surface and calming any existing flare-ups.
You can also fight the signs of aging! Ever wish you could turn back time to reveal a smoother, more youthful complexion? A pumpkin peel can help you do just that. When applied to the skin, the acids immediately get to work exfoliating dead cells and promoting the cell renewal process, which helps younger cells come to the surface. The result is a smoother, more taut complexion that shaves years off your appearance.
You already eat (and drink) pumpkin for its numerous health benefits. Why not incorporate it into your skincare regimen, too? At Catalyst Clinical Spa, our pumpkin peel treatment uses natural enzymes to exfoliate and infuse your complexion with vitamins and nutrients. In just one treatment, you’ll see just how effective pumpkin is at resurfacing the skin to fight the signs of acne and aging.
