Facials Q & A

What should I expect from a facial?

Your facial at SANTÉ Aesthetics & Wellness begins with a thorough analysis of your skin type and its overall health. You’ll talk with the esthetician about your skin concerns and the results you’d like to achieve, then your facial is customized to reach your goals.

You can receive varying levels of facials, from a light treatment that lifts away dead, dull skin, to facials designed to go deeper and remove more layers of skin. At SANTÉ Aesthetics & Wellness, you can count on facials made from the highest quality natural substances and organic acids. They also proudly offer the Epionce™ Peel System.

What is the Epionce Peel System?

The Epionce system is a chemical peel that uses natural fruit enzymes and acids to promote skin cell turnover and trigger collagen production. Following an Epionce peel, the top layer of your skin sheds, creating light peeling that occurs gradually over four to five days.

Before applying the peel, your esthetician preps your skin with a thorough cleansing. Then there are two steps to the Epionce Peel System:


Salicylic acid is applied to your skin. This is a weak acid with antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. It helps improve skin texture, cleanses pores, and prepares your skin for the second step by increasing its ability to absorb malic acid.


Malic acid is an alpha hydroxy acid that promotes cell turnover, improves hydration, and further reduces bacteria.

Your Epionce peel also contains other natural ingredients, such as willow bark extract and onion bulb extract. Willow bark helps cleanse pores, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and improve pigmentation. Onion bulb extract fights inflammation, boosts collagen production, and calms your skin.

The Epionce Peel System is formulated to provide different strengths and intensities, so it’s safe for all skin types and conditions.

What skin problems improve with Epionce?

The skin conditions treated depend on the strength of your Epionce peel. However, this facial can help:

  • Improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Diminish hyperpigmentation (age spots and sun damage)
  • Reduce acne breakouts
  • Lighten skin redness due to rosacea

Even the lightest Epionce peel brightens dull skin and improves your overall complexion.
