For ultimate skin care …

By Staff | Mar 24, 2011

A strong interest in ultimate skin care in the field of beauty has Morgan Soper, a 2004 Estherville Lincoln Central graduate, operating a new and unique service in Estherville.

A licensed esthetician, Soper is the daughter of Dr. Greg and Wendy Sander of Estherville. Her newly opened business, Skin a Peel, is located in the chiropractic office of her father, Dr. Greg Sander, 15 S. 9th St.

Following high school commencement, she completed the cosmetology course of study at La James International School of Cosmetology in Fort Dodge. After graduation she gained employment as a hair stylist and is currently working at Shear Attractions. In March 2009, Soper decided to expand the amount of services she provides by going back to La James to earn her esthetician’s license. After three months she had successfully completed the requirements for her esthetician certification.

In May 2010, Soper opened Skin a Peel where she specializes in waxing, microdermabrasion, facials and customized peels. Here’s a detailed explanation of the services Soper offers.

Microdermabrasion is a skin resurfacing treatment which removes the upper layers of the epidermis. “This treatment gradually erases flaws and blemishes as each pass of the microdermabrasion machine removes a precise amount of surface cells revealing newer, healthier skin. Microdermabrasion unclogs and shrinks pores, clears mild acne, helps tighten and smooth fine lines and wrinkles,” Soper explained.

It was noted microdermabrasion is great for anyone who has scars caused by a tragedy or acne. “It also is a wonderful treatment for people with hyper pigmentation, age or sun spots. It makes the scars and other blemishes less noticeable by evening out the pigmentation in the skin. Microdermabrasion is one the top treatments recommended by dermatologists.”

Soper is pleased to offer over eight different facials, all customized for individual skin types. She said, “A facial is a very relaxing procedure that offers great benefits for your skin.”

Skin a Peel also offers chemical peels. “These peels retexturize the skin and remove layers of the epidermis, so the skin looks younger, smooth, and refreshed,” she said, adding, “The chemical peels are great for people who have sluggish skin, mild acne, fine lines and wrinkles, hyper pigmentation, age or sun spots. The peel safely removes dead layers of the skin which makes and produces more collagen and elastin. These chemical peels have no down time, so the client could continue with normal everyday activities.”

She also offers a wide range of waxing services. Soper noted waxing is a great way to avoid ingrown hairs. “The hair also takes a lot longer to grow back after waxing, rather than shaving,” she said.

The esthetician noted the average appointment last about an hour. “I carry the Bioelements Skin Care product line which includes a wide range to suit every skin type. It is affordable and used by leading estheticians for professional facials.”

Currently the special is 15 percent off all Bioelements products. These items have no artificial colorants or synthetic fragrances and none of these products are tested on animals. This product line contains organic and natural botanicals. Skin a Peel is offering a savings on all facials and chemical peels at the present time. Microdermabrasion treatments are priced as low as $45 per session. Soper offers special microdermabrasion treatment packages.

Persons wanting more information or to schedule an appointment can call 712-362-SKIN (7546).

She and her husband Jeff and daughter Ella reside in Estherville.
